Robot dj was really kicking it today. Good morning
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:03:23 AM
Good morning, Brian. Yes, somebody must be optimizing the Robot's database.
Brian D 7:05:51 AM
Cool sounds with the thick fog outside the back window
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:06:40 AM
If only I could keep that fog from burning off. Would set the stage for my show.
the_dude 7:27:22 AM
the_dude 7:27:35 AM
Keeping it foggy in here
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:28:09 AM
Yeah, I asked for a fog machine - and a laser pyramid.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:31:46 AM
Oops, that song was not hoi hoi hoi, but 'hey-oo'.
the_dude 7:35:41 AM
They gotta bump up your show budget Dave! I'll talk to the higher ups for you
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:36:36 AM
Thanks, dude. They'll listen to you. You're their caffeine supplier.
the_dude 7:39:34 AM
Haha! I guess the dude draws a lot of water in this town
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:44:07 AM
Now, we got a nice quiet little community radio station here, and I aim to keep it nice and quiet.
Christine 🦊 7:48:35 AM
This Netshanet Mellesse is so interesting. 🍵 Good morning Dave & all 👋
the_dude 7:48:43 AM
Haha! I'd continue but that was perfect, a master of the air waves and chat ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ
the_dude 7:49:16 AM
Morning Christine! And agreed, some great sounds this AM
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:49:53 AM
Good morning, Christine.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:50:51 AM
Master of chat? Hardly. I don't inspire the kind of traffic that the others do.
the_dude 7:51:47 AM
Ehh there's different metrics in the equation, volume isn't everything, and there's room for more than one
Christine 🦊 7:54:43 AM
Quality > quantity
the_dude 7:58:28 AM
I've seen you pull some tricks here too 🎩🪄🐇
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:59:24 AM
Not sure what you're referring to, but thanks.
Christine 🦊 8:01:12 AM
Flying Lotus have the best, most interesting album art.
the_dude 8:04:10 AM
Ha yeah there's definitely a lot going on there, would be a cool shirt too
Andrew Tos 8:06:13 AM
Flying Lotus gets some top notch art for his albums. Even people who don't listen to him recognize the Cosmogramma cover
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:08:20 AM
Good morning, Andrew Tos.

I like when you play this Brand X BBC
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:11:44 AM
John Goodsall is another of those speed demon guitarists
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:12:56 AM
And I found that BBC sessions disc in PREX. Didn't even know it existed.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:15:21 AM
This Tirgan Hamasyan song is verging into Zeuhl territory.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:15:52 AM
Sometime during November, I am doing a 3 hour feature on Zeuhl.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:17:21 AM
Warn your neighbors.

Secure all small, loose objects.

Good morning, Chef.

that Akshara Music Ensemble was fantastic. Their only song it appears..
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:30:18 AM
As far as I can find, it is their only CD.
DSM 8:32:16 AM
Chef the clams last night were phenomenal
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:39:04 AM
For contractual reasons, Hatfield and the North had to rename all their songs on these archival compilations. Virgin may still own the rights to the titles. So Calyx becomes K-Licks.
Chef Emeril Lagasse 8:43:23 AM
Thank you <3 hope the water was alright
Christine 🦊 8:43:39 AM
@Chef, thanks for the roast ghost and the other strange edibles you served up during Lizbot's chat. 🔥👻
Ram Ramaprasd 8:50:56 AM
I had some time this morning and thought I will drop in to say hi to you all and David. But I felt like I have travelled to a different planet. I speak about 6 languages, but this was something else😂😂
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:51:40 AM
Good morning, Ram.
Kentman 8:52:04 AM
good morning, if you're going to play follow your heart, the Joe Farrell Quartet's is the one to play
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:52:32 AM
Thanks for the tip, Kentman. I will seek it out.
Ookla the Mok 8:56:37 AM
Gryphon rocks
Christine 🦊 8:57:00 AM
@Ram, hello! 👋
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:57:43 AM
Yes, Gryphon might even persuade a progressive arch deacon to discreetly tap his toes.
Ookla the Mok 8:58:32 AM
Ram Ramaprasd 8:58:33 AM
@Christine, good morning. Hope all is well, and coffee is brewing nicely there
Kentman 8:59:49 AM
apologies for barking at you DTO, spent most of the morning cleaning and scrubbing
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:00:58 AM
No apology necessary, Kentman. I always want to find more good music.

Joe Rathbone 9:08:15 AM
great show ..
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:08:51 AM
I appreciate the feedback. 🙏
the_dude 9:15:41 AM
Smooth transition from Fiuczynski to stop motion orchestra, they got a little punk in them too?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:18:12 AM
dude, 🙏
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:24:03 AM
I'm only playing 4 tracks from Boud Deun's 14 track epic composition "Churches", that lasts >30 minutes.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:25:05 AM
Track divisions are random. The composition contains many more that 14 sudden changes.
the_dude 9:28:03 AM
Of course! And yeah love your Boud Deun and cuneiform selections
the_dude 9:28:47 AM
Ohh tibbetts now, heard a cool tibbetts track on air last night on marks show
the_dude 9:29:05 AM
Thought of your completionist tendencies
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:29:37 AM
Actually he played the same track. What are the odds?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:31:51 AM
Just ordered another piece to complete my Tibbetts collection. Minnesota's Composers Forum: 4 Letters, instead of 3 Letters that he released on Big Map Idea.
the_dude 9:36:34 AM
Oh haha yeah, collective consciousness I guess. And I figured you had everything already!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:38:05 AM
One last rare Tibbetts left. He has some loops on some weird compilation that is either unavailable or way too expensive.
Brian D 9:44:54 AM
RTF sounded great. SCI doing a fine job here on the Birdland
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:45:55 AM
SCI is a fine jam band. I like how they blend in country/bluegrass.
Christine 🦊 9:46:43 AM
Sounds like a fun time.
Bud Burroughs 9:47:21 AM
Morning Dave! This caught my ear during a particular boring chunk of my current meeting. Surprised to see it was SCI!
Brian D 9:48:07 AM
I get a little "Graham-Chapman-Col.-Walking -into-room-too-silly" usually when i hear them. But this is pretty darn good
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:48:08 AM
Good morning, Bud. Glad to hear you are able to listen at least a bit.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:48:54 AM
Nothing silly about Birdland.
Brian D 9:52:39 AM
Nice harmonies there
Brian D 9:55:24 AM
I've seen Bill Nershi in his solo band once or twice. Liked that.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:56:20 AM
Brain, you are a wealth of musical knowledge and experience.
Christine 🦊 9:56:40 AM
Excellent program this morning, Dave the Obscure. 🙏 Thank you
Kentman 9:57:06 AM
thanks DTO
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:57:18 AM
Thank you, Christine. And Kentman.
Brian D 9:57:36 AM
So all those sounds on the Weather Report cover that sounded like electric guitar were really Michael Kang's electric mandolin. Bill Nershi was on acoustic guitar there.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:58:24 AM
That's amazing, Brian. I would never have guessed.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:58:42 AM
I mean, I knew there was mandolin, but not sounding like that.
the_dude 9:58:42 AM
Here they come! Great show today Dave thank you, looking forward to next week, cheers everyone!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:58:56 AM
Thanks, dude.
Bud Burroughs 9:59:40 AM
He plays an electric mandolin with single courses of strings instead of doubles, which creates a very guitarish sound
Brian D 9:59:44 AM
I think... unless Bill was wearing 2 gtrs... or had the ol Steve Howe acoustic on a stand that he could move to.... always wanted one of those
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:59:49 AM
Thanks for keeping me company in the chat. Have a good day.
