Steve Tibbetts The Secret
Steve Tibbetts Frammis 1977

Recorded late at night in the Macalester music department's electronic music studio. By late summer of 1976 Tibbetts had enough music for an album but little chance of getting a label to put it out. He did have something he could use for a cover from his work as an art major and a little money saved from a night shift job at Minnesota Public Radio, so he found a pressing plant in Arizona that would manufacture 200 albums for $600 and he sent them his stuff. About a month later they sent him the finished albums.

good morning DTO as Christine writes it, I'm all ears, lots of guitarists I never heard--is Trey Gunn related to Steve Gunn?

Good morning, Brian D!

Good morning, kentman.

I do not believe Trey and Steve are related.

Good morning, Chef.
Brian D 7:43:09 AM
Trey was in the 90s 2000s King Crimson lineup right?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:44:08 AM
Yes he was, from 1994-2003.

Been thinking lately about now nuts it is how quickly rock guitar music evolved from like 1960-70
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:12:25 AM
A creative period for pop music.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:19:48 AM
I've been thinking that it is these recent years, with the internet bringing all music to everybody, that music is evolving at a much faster pace.
esoterica 8:22:11 AM
good morn, dave! my husband was driving at 7:23 am and texted that you played some incredible tood rundgren prague rock song? maybe he was mistaken. i don't see todd on your plkaylist
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:22:51 AM
I did not play any Todd Rundgren.
esoterica 8:23:37 AM
haha he must have mistaken. does trey gunn sound like todd?
the_dude 8:23:57 AM
Probably that California guitar tio covering yes?
esoterica 8:24:10 AM
yup must be it, thx
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:24:18 AM
Not at all. Also, Trey Gunn aired well after 7:23.
jimbeaux 8:24:42 AM
More Prague rock, please :) Plastic Peoples of the Universe?
Brian D 8:24:47 AM
Hi Eso. 723 am sounds like it would have been the Yes cover by Calif Gtr Trio
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:24:56 AM
Ja, Jimbeaux!
the_dude 8:24:57 AM
That cover was awesome though, I book marked that one for later too DJE
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:25:00 AM
Good morning, DTO, Esoterica, kentman, Chef Emeril, Brian D, and the_dude 👋
the_dude 8:25:16 AM
Morning christine!

Good morning, Christine.
Chef Emeril "WPR-BAM!!!" Lagasse 8:25:56 AM
Agreed @dave re: the internet. I think it has also turned the term "genre-defying" into a reality instead of largely a buzzword haha. Much less clear boundaries, and arguably less need for boundaries of genre
Brian D 8:26:00 AM
Missed that one too. (Yes cover) have to check it out later
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:26:39 AM
How's everybody doing? 🛰 Did anyone see the ISS fly over early this morning?
the_dude 8:26:54 AM
You know I was just thinking, you and dje should do a pledge show some time, your names are kinda similar, and (you're both among my favorite dj's), maybe Dave the esoteric. Or DJ obscurica
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:26:56 AM
Slept right through that.
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:27:18 AM
Yo jimbeaux 🌄
esoterica 8:27:41 AM
hi dude, christine, emeril, bri, jimbeaux
esoterica 8:28:15 AM
haha i just realized my hubby had a typo there (prague = prog). a simple mistake
the_dude 8:28:25 AM
I used to be very into specific genre identifying, kinda fun, but agreed Chef, the boundaries blur a lot, no space station over here either , idk I'd the city lights would allow
esoterica 8:28:26 AM
must have been that yes cover
jimbeaux 8:28:40 AM
yodelly-ho everyone! saying hi before my day is consumed by hecticity.
the_dude 8:29:15 AM
Is there a sub genre of prague rock? Lol
esoterica 8:29:37 AM
thx, bri. now i have to this California guitar trio. i just woke up!
the_dude 8:29:41 AM
Sounds brutal jimbeaux, don't get too zapped out there!
esoterica 8:30:37 AM
jimbeaux, bottle the good vibes on this chat to fuel your day.
jimbeaux 8:31:08 AM
bees, construction, but insanely busy. Will catch some PRB in the work truck! Thanks eso...some of your songs have hit just right lately.
the_dude 8:31:12 AM
the_dude 8:31:33 AM
I just saw those bees, so cool!
Brian D 8:31:41 AM
My buddy first heard the term "Indie rock" in the late 90s early 2000s. He thought at first it had to do with the country of India.
the_dude 8:32:21 AM
Haha, I think it should go back to that, indie is too catch all
esoterica 8:33:40 AM
thx, jimbeaux.
esoterica 8:33:58 AM
are those "bees" brood x?
the_dude 8:34:23 AM
Anyone ever watch the TV show Stella? With David wain, Micheal Ian black, David Showalter? Funny bit on the genre funk rock
Brian D 8:35:18 AM
College rock was a more commonly heard term for a while [80s into 90s]. Indie was understandable. But "Alternative" was thrown around too loosely. Sounded like an industry or radio invented thing crow barred into everywhere
Brian D 8:36:32 AM
Forgot about Stella... Yeah those people are funny. The State / Wet Hot American Summer etc
esoterica 8:37:59 AM
i will have to check out stella.
Brian D 8:39:58 AM
Very short run as a show .. but i see they toured too
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:40:26 AM
@the_dude, I never saw the tv show Stella. I'll have to look that one up.
esoterica 8:46:43 AM
hey dave, i bet todd covered heart of the sunrise, too. therein lies ward's (my husband) confusion. checking...
esoterica 8:48:23 AM
not that you are that concerned about this issue.;). haha
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:48:45 AM
No, I'd be interesting in hearing that. Doesn't seem to be the sort of song he'd cover.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:51:33 AM
I am intrigued by cover versions, particularly when they drastically reimagine the original song.
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:55:28 AM
Cover songs can be pretty fascinating. Up until today I never knew that Phish covered the entire Remain in Light album by TH.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:57:02 AM
So my good deed for the day is done already.
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:58:20 AM
All sorted! 🙌
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:58:22 AM
But I think I like Angélique Kidjo's cover better.
Christine {¤_θ}° 8:59:40 AM
Oh, I really like Angélique. 💜 But I never heard her cover the Talking Heads.
the_dude 8:59:44 AM
BAM - what a morning rush. But yes, the state and the wet hot crew are some of my favorite! Stella is a great show, definitely worth checking out, silly bit smart. The web series before the TV show, also great, raunchy and more mature but some really great music/song choice jokes in there. I've seen Stella live too, very funny show, they're all really nice too. - oh and that last track, my customers had to deal with it being blasted, it ripped!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:02:02 AM
Angélique also covered the entire Remain in Light LP. Just a year or so ago.
Corage Mike 9:02:19 AM
Wanted to be astute. Phish on PRB.!
Christine {¤_θ}° 9:06:36 AM
Thanks for that information, DJ Dave. I will seek out her album! I really hope I can see Angélique Kidjo live once more in my life. Her concert was one of the most life-affirming experiences.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:16:33 AM
@ the dude, have any of your customers expressed appreciation for WPRB's music, or do they just look bewildered?
Dave@Occam 9:19:54 AM
Anything with bari sax wins my heart!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:20:57 AM
I will keep that in mind for future shows, Dave@Occam.
kentman 9:25:27 AM
anymore David Byrne?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:26:14 AM
Not on this show, no. Didn't do a proper tribute for David Byrnes' b-day.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:29:51 AM
The EWF horn section kicks ass.
Dave@Occam 9:30:12 AM
Indeed they do!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:35:14 AM
I keep hearing the riff from Siberian Khatru in here.
Brian D 9:35:26 AM
Ha me too Dave!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:35:55 AM
Should have paired this with California Guitar Trio.
Mark 9:36:01 AM
hi dave/ sure wish the TNA would rethink its no internet footprint 👣 policy - would like to hear a few i missed & a couple relistens :)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:36:53 AM
Thanks, Mark. But no. We have to move on. Plenty of great new shows to listen to.
Brian D 9:37:06 AM
As if Les Paul forwarded to the prog era and did his speed adjusted gtr tricks. Although i don't think these people are doing speed/ tape adjustments here. Just funnin
Brian D 9:38:34 AM
I like the "Wind " word appearing in 2 titles today (and 1 band name! )
Brian D 9:39:03 AM
A Mighty good word indeed
Mark 9:39:13 AM
wish I heard ctg heart of sunrise :( otherwise great show as always
Bud Burroughs 9:40:26 AM
CGT played Heart of the Sunrise at NEARFest, with an audience of 1000+ prog nerds heartily singing along!
Mark 9:41:51 AM
@bud man don’t tell me that !:) wow how do we get NEArfest back ?!
Bud Burroughs 9:42:54 AM
A time machine is probably your best option...
Mark 9:44:08 AM
haha any prog nerds have space on their for one more ?
Mark 9:45:20 AM
film buffalo 66 used to heart of sunrise to good effect
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:48:36 AM
And this is 2 shows in a row that I have resisted the urge to play Rock Progressivo Italiano.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:48:44 AM
I think I’ve shown amazing restraint. The therapy sessions are working.
Christine {¤_θ}° 9:50:01 AM
That Sanna track was gorgeous.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:51:02 AM
Yes, Christine. Sanna & Hedningarna are great.
Bud Burroughs 9:51:05 AM
Maybe next show should be all RPI, just to be fair.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:51:40 AM
Oh don't tempt me. I could do it.

And I apologize now to Selecta Jerry for what I am about to play.
Corage Mike 9:54:30 AM
Have seen Dread Zeppelin a couple times back in the day. Awesome show! So many Rat Pack jokes. GWAR was the headliner at City Gardens.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:55:23 AM
Another fine show that I missed. 😞
Christine {¤_θ}° 9:55:43 AM
DTO, I doubt any apology is required. Selecta Jerry is probably a secret Dread Zeppelin fan. 😄
Brian D 9:55:48 AM
Opened up for Dread Zeppelin once. Fun show. RIP Jah Paul Jo
Selecta Jerry 9:56:00 AM
Cant wait to hear dread zep been a long time lol
