hey Jeff
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:06:17 PM
any show that starts with Grace Jones is gonna be a good one...
KOTJames 1:06:23 PM
Syrup, so sweet.
KOTJames 1:06:41 PM
Maple sound syrup
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:07:06 PM
mmm, with waffles
JeffB (host) 1:17:19 PM
Hello Jamie and James.. this is Jeff.. :)
JeffB (host) 1:17:48 PM
still recording hour #2.. very seat of the pantz here today..
JeffB (host) 1:18:17 PM
oh jeez.. Spinitron didn't recognize Grace Jones.. will fix..
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:22:47 PM
grace jones got linked to Democracy Now. It does that at the end of my show, adds the 1st 1am bot song at the end of my show.
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:23:52 PM
spin #2, stay tuned for the double dose trifecta...
JeffB (host) 1:25:15 PM
Yeah Spinitron resides a minute in the future.. if only it provided lottery numbers..
JeffB (host) 1:30:34 PM
Hour #2 "accepted" .. otherwise last week's #2 would have repeated..
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:37:40 PM
What the "mono"? Who does that?
JeffB (host) 1:38:35 PM
dunno, their other song "Hunger for a Way Out" sounds mono too. I hit the "mono" button of my monitor on both songs, no difference. Maybe it's a thing.
KOTJames 1:38:39 PM
I played Danse Society Light Years a couple months ago on a Home Pandemicast show....does that count?
JeffB (host) 1:39:14 PM
I think Jamie's gonna play it again tonight, wish I mentioned that..
KOTJames 1:39:29 PM
@ JC....I never waffle on sound syrup
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:40:36 PM
ooof, James, on the breakfast joke.
ex DJ tamer 1:40:50 PM
@JB & Linda - I assumed it was a "thing". The trendy lo-fi sound?
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:41:02 PM
Hey there. Maybe so.
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:41:23 PM
@James, nor I, but waffles....
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:41:41 PM
since bands can't effectively do the "locked groove" thing at the end of a vinyl recording.
JeffB (host) 1:44:09 PM
Hey exDT ! Does kinda make it sound lo-fi . @Linda they could just replicate a locked groove sound and put it at the end of the song ?
ex DJ tamer 1:46:02 PM
Would love to see a band replicate their locked-groove song in concert...
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:46:53 PM
Ooooo, that would be cool.. for a time
Jamie Cohen (1) 1:48:36 PM
this JB ULmer track is awesome!
ex DJ tamer 1:49:57 PM
@LPH - They could have the locked-groove part prerecorded, play it live, then put down their instruments and walk off stage while the recording keeps playing. Probably a good idea for the final song in their final encore set.
JeffB (host) 1:49:48 PM
I recall seeing Bowie doing a locked groove thing in concert after "Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family"
ex DJ tamer 1:50:34 PM
Linda Paone Hirschberg 1:51:06 PM
*jealous* That would've been amazing
JeffB (host) 1:54:01 PM
His tour in Foxborough 1987
Jeff, your shows have made this weird summer bearable, and they are something that I truly look forward to. Thanks!
JeffB (host) 1:55:23 PM
oh wow thanks QR ! Are you doing radio somewhere too ?
Perhaps in the future and or in a filmic way. Learning from the Z in meantime
JeffB (host) 2:01:18 PM
well best of luck ! honored to share whatever knowledge we can impart..
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:02:50 PM
That Bowie show in Foxboroi wa one of the best concerts I've ever seen.
ex DJ tamer 2:03:02 PM
RE: locked grooves: One of the most difficult records to play on the radio is the "100 Locked Groove" compilation from RRRecords. Let's say you want to play the band F/i, whose song is cut # 25. Good luck counting the grooves.
Linda Paone Hirschberg 2:04:31 PM
You're killing me (Jamie & JB).. '83 Bowie in Foxboro was my first concert ever. Missed him in '87.
JeffB (host) 2:06:59 PM
@ SC - 50 cuts a side ? And you have to lift the needle after each track since each one locks? World's least practical vinyl pressing I guess..
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:07:43 PM
Honestly, best time I saw Bowie was with Tin Machine at the Living Room in Providence. I was close enough to see which eye was blue and which was brown.
Linda Paone Hirschberg 2:09:29 PM
Yesssss, Jamie! That was an underrated tour. I didn't like the album much, but the live show (in Boston, too) was intense. Think they were meant to play live.
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:10:44 PM
Who'd a thunk Soupy Sales sons would be great musicians.
JeffB (host) 2:11:06 PM
@Jamie wow ! With Reeves Gabral who I don't think lives in Boston anymore. I saw Bowie at the Orpheum, but was in row 24 or something - back of the orchestra pit. Was still a stunningly amazing show. Saw Foxborough both '83 and '87, all I could get were nosebleed seats.
KOTJames 2:17:35 PM
Ooof....should be my middle or nickname.
Linda Paone Hirschberg 2:17:38 PM
The vocals on this track remind me of Bryan Ferry (early Roxy).
Linda Paone Hirschberg 2:17:57 PM
"Kick Ooof The James"?
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:19:14 PM
Yeah, Reeves Gabral, such a great guitar player. Of the 4 times I saw Bowie, the only one Iless than stellar was in 90 or 91?, with Adrian Belew and teh Bears, with the Bears playing behind a Giant sbreen. There was some cool nostalgia, but it was the greatest hits swan snog tour.
KOTJames 2:19:24 PM
jeff GREAT vibe today to accompany the green mountains. If this is the last syrup for the pandemic times...nice finale. I hope not the last pandemic cast.
KOTJames 2:19:48 PM
@ linda...K-Ooof-TJ - well played
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:19:58 PM
oy spelling
ex DJ tamer 2:20:11 PM
When ya gonna tap some maple trees for sap, KOTJ?
JeffB (host) 2:21:04 PM
Thanks @KOTJ :) Coming from you.. think one more week. Wasn't sure if this would be the last or not.
ex DJ tamer 2:21:13 PM
Boiled sound sap becomes sound syrup.
JeffB (host) 2:21:28 PM
This syrup is 100% HFCS
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:22:00 PM
the best kind of syrup...
ex DJ tamer 2:23:10 PM
HFCS is bad juju. I think Jamie means the sound syrup is best!
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:24:11 PM
yes, the boiled sap sound syrup....
JeffB (host) 2:24:22 PM
HFCS = artificial, genetically modified, recorded using ProTools..
ex DJ tamer 2:25:52 PM
@JB - "100 Locked Grooves" was most likely intended as a concept sound piece more than a listenable LP. Years later, RRRecords followed up with "500 Locked Grooves" and "1,000 Locked Grooves". I only own the original with 100 grooves. https://bit.ly/2F4MZ73
PiGuy 2:26:45 PM
Guess we'll have to enjoy the syrup before it freezes in the winter.
ex DJ tamer 2:27:39 PM
Mmm, maple syrup snow cones.
JeffB (host) 2:28:55 PM
"This is a 1000 lock-groove LP, 500 per side" 24,00 € VAT incl. I want one !!
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:34:13 PM
This is awesome, did Peter play it last week?
JeffB (host) 2:34:23 PM
Yeah that's where I heard it.
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:36:31 PM
may need to play it next week myself.
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:37:05 PM
it would go well with the new Massive Attck tracks
ex DJ tamer 2:37:41 PM
@JB - you can find a mint copy of 1,000 Locked Grooves for $20+shipping from a Discogs vendor.
JeffB (host) 2:37:26 PM
Oh ! Haven't heard new Massive Attack.. must investigate
JeffB (host) 2:38:03 PM
@xDT.. gotta get thx!
ex DJ tamer 2:39:11 PM
ex DJ tamer 2:39:41 PM
Hurry -- 1,000 of your radio listeners just saw that URL.
ex DJ tamer 2:41:54 PM
You'll end up ordering a copy from the vendor in Latvia if you dilly dally.
JeffB (host) 2:42:22 PM
haha! Thanks for the link, my search was yielding no results.. just ordered
ex DJ tamer 2:42:46 PM
Groovy, man!
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:44:01 PM
this orgone is totally groovy
ex DJ tamer 2:44:25 PM
1,000 Locked Grooves is the grooviest record I know of--most records only have 2 grooves (one each side.)
JeffB (host) 2:45:55 PM
i see what you did there..
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:48:22 PM
hahaha, groan....
Jamie Cohen (1) 2:49:11 PM
Gotta head out, it's beena gretat shoe Jeff, and fun chat
JeffB (host) 2:49:09 PM
Catch you tonight Jamie thx for hangin'
Andrew Herman 2:50:46 PM
Hooray! You played The Danse Society!
JeffB (host) 2:50:37 PM

Linda Paone Hirschberg 2:56:07 PM
Great chatting with you all. I'm off to check out the new Massive Attack now. Will try to catch your show later, Jamie.
ex DJ tamer 2:57:58 PM
Andrew played L.A. Witch this morning, too.
JeffB (host) 3:00:35 PM
Different cut. Hey all THNNK YOU for bein' here. Including PiGuy ! And Linda.. and..
