Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:18am ultradamno:

The big album rock station in IN when I was in high school was Q95 (WFBQ), it's hard for me to put the thought of their morning zoo playing during my morning vocational printing class out of my mind looking at that band name.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:19am ultradamno:

Nubians Of Plutonia is a good one to break into planet Ra with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am TomDash:

yeah ultrad - I picked up the 70s reissue on Impulse back in the 80s and it has a far out space illustration. Figured it was from his more out, free 70s period but then I read the gatefold that it was from early 60s...
Avatar 12:22am RabidRabbit:

For sure....I haven't listened to much Sun Ra, but that was really good. Will check out more!
Avatar 12:27am mb:

Hello DJ TomDash and all. The kitchen just about cleaned itself with that Hawkwind on full blast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am TomDash:

hey there mb - nothing like a motorik pulse to help with the cleaning! This song might make ya mess it up again though...
Avatar 12:29am Jedley:

This farfisa is cleaning out my brain after 12 hours of work and election volunteering
Avatar 12:30am Jedley:

Now someone will correct me that it is not a farfisa. Either way my it's helping my neurons
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am TomDash:

morning @Jedley - thank you for jumping onboard...AND volunteering!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:31am ultradamno:

I think it's a bass.

My pleasure. Thanks for being here Tom, crew, and cronies!

Haha @ultra I mean the organ

@Zenkoan Ahaha, yes, indeed. Love me some Jandek! Waiting on my Berlin Sunday CD to arrive:)
Avatar 12:45am RabidRabbit:

@Richy Hehe, I think this was intentional cosplay by Jandek at the time :)

. . . story of my life.
Avatar 12:54am RabidRabbit:

My star didn't highlight for a bit (although the song was still shown as favourited) but now all okay:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am coelacanth∅:

yeah it's holding now
  12:56am Kate:

Hey @Jedley! I’d love that! I moved here week of shelter in place from bk and have been pretty bored
  12:57am Kate:

ps thanks for the bay tunes Tom!
Avatar 1:00am Jedley:

I'd say most people moving from NYC are bored unless you really like hiking and such but that sounds like historically excellent timing for a move
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:02am mariano:

I remember the first time I heard Polyrock, I must've been around 10 or 11. HBO would sometimes play random music videos between movies, including "Romantic Me." They also played an Undertones video.
  1:02am Kate:

Haha yea, not ideal. The hikes were nice until they got ashy
Avatar 1:07am Jedley:

We can't promise your town won't combust, but we can promise no polar vortex!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am northguineahills:

When I went to the store, a bunch of Iowan college covidiots came in, most weren't wearing masks or social distancing. The staff was overwhelmed (over 20 of them at once). Some tried to cut in front of me in line, and I gave them the side-eye, and said, "excuse me!', and pointed to the back of the line. The african-american couple behind me chuckled. Think is the Jersey Shore (reality show) was relocated to Midwest. Finally my Brooklyn background paid off.... (at least FL trash is mostly polite).

You know the state's name is an acronym for Idiots Out Wandering Around?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:19am ultradamno:

^I believe that's a Thinking Fellers joke and they're from there, so...
Avatar 1:21am RabidRabbit:

@ultra LOL :):)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am northguineahills:

@Ultra: I know cool people from Iowa (Clay Pidge for example), and I basically grew up in FL, so, there are always exceptions.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am TomDash:

(kinda forgot how lo-fi this recording is)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:47am ultradamno:

Sounds more than acceptable to me. Though I wouldn't guess it was The Dils without being told, I don't think.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:48am ultradamno:

Not that I would guess after being told, that would be senseless.

I think we are pretty much at zenith effluvium right now actually!

May it all crumble

this is my subtle set of the night...
  2:01am egould310:

I missed that Urge Overkill show at No Bar. Saw them at Jabberjaw in LA in 93. I was on some serious medicine for that show. And at the Bluebird in 90-91? I was kind of drunk for that show.
  2:02am egould310:

That set was very excellent. Thanks, Tom.
  2:03am johnzo:

is spiney Norman a Monty Python reference...?

by the way, I keep forgetting to mention all the special shows this month! Go to the Specials page - I am doing the Singles Going Steady week next week with all 70s/80s punk, post-punk, garage rock 45s to re-live the days I spun records at NYC rock'n'roll bars...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:23am ultradamno:

Break out the little records!

Dot Dash is the Cat’s Pyjamas.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:41am ultradamno:

I imagine cat pjs are pretty cool but my cat would kill me if I tried to put her in them. There would only be shreds left.
  2:43am rw:

Thanks TomDash! You knew how you were going to finish the show. Past my bedtime but hanging 'til the end!!
  2:46am rw:

Oh, and speaking of bedtime, thanks as always for staying up late to share all this music! Really something, what you all do.
