KOTJames 10:13:32 AM
That was a cool star gaze sample/tag.
Bruce Pierce 10:22:11 AM
Happy solstice everyone!
DJ Simon 10:22:13 AM
Enjoying the solstice syrup.
JeffB (host) 10:29:31 AM
Happy SolsticeConvergence Bruce! (though it's looking like we won't be able to see the great convergence.. cloudy!
ex-DJ tamer 10:29:44 AM
I feel fully converged at the moment
JeffB (host) 10:30:53 AM
Anyone remember this Chimera song? I heard this a lot on ZBC back in the early "Flyweight" era
JeffB (host) 10:31:45 AM
PeterC 10:32:24 AM
I love this FACS thing...
JeffB (host) 10:32:58 AM
i keep checking to see if FACS puts out something new.. you're way more on top of that stuff PC..
JeffB (host) 10:36:34 AM
FWIW the "crew member" drops were in flight announcements for "Dinner in the Sky" "...which uses a crane to hoist its diners, table, and waiting staff 150 feet into the air. Forbes magazine called it one of the world's ten most unusual restaurants."
Andrew Herman 10:39:29 AM
Hi Jeff!
Andrew Herman 10:41:10 AM
BTW, the best syrup is Canadian, IMHO
PeterC 10:41:54 AM
I'm going to be playing this this week as well...I got it from perry while we were zooming last Wed...
Andrew Herman 10:41:51 AM
Who is Blanketman?
PeterC 10:43:09 AM
I wanted to bust his chops about why a remix came out just after the normal released and why didn't he get it right the first time, but humor doesn't always go well over email
PeterC 10:44:43 AM
Hey andrew...I'm finally not zooming on monday morning...I can listen and chat here while emailing and database mining on another window...
Andrew Herman 10:47:33 AM
Well, then allow me to vent
Andrew Herman 10:48:16 AM
Last Friday the powers that be at WZBC asked if I would like to move to Tuesdays from 1000-1200 during Xmas break
Andrew Herman 10:48:51 AM
Since my show is at the lonely hour of 0600 I immediately said that yes I would
Andrew Herman 10:49:35 AM
Since that time I have not heard confirmation from either Mariam or Judy in spite of numerous entreaties on my part to each of them
Andrew Herman 10:51:03 AM
I see from this weeks schedule that I am still at 0600-0800 on Wednesday in spite of the fact that there five two hour holes in the schedule
Andrew Herman 10:52:14 AM
I don't mind being moved to fill holes in the schedule but I do mind a lack of clarity and responsiveness on the part of ZBC management
PeterC 10:53:10 AM
I saw the gaping holes in the schedule and offered to pick up another hour...since I actually hate doing only one hour...so we'll se
Andrew Herman 10:52:41 AM
Although I will produce my show one way or another, the schedule does make a difference in terms of when I have to the show produced.
Andrew Herman 10:53:15 AM
Jeff, do you have Judy's ear?
Andrew Herman 10:53:50 AM
PeterC--you should definitely be able to do two hours. It's a no brainer
Andrew Herman 10:54:53 AM
Jeff: if you like Cristina you should check out the new Aksak Maboul
PeterC 10:56:06 AM
cristina...brilliant...I have a mix I do for my annual xmas eve gathering that this is on...
Kevin Polk 10:56:08 AM
I don't know about all this schedule talk, it's crucial to keep space open to hear more spotify mixes of pitchfork recommended indie tracks (ducks)
Andrew Herman 10:56:36 AM
JeffB (host) 10:57:51 AM
hey AH - Oroboros.. wow yeah sorry, I've had to deal with similar communication issues.. I'll see if I can help sort it out, would be great to hear your show during the day..
Bruce Pierce 10:57:37 AM
hey Jeff, about Christmas - it is Friday, not Saturday!
KOTJames 10:57:43 AM
PeterC 10:58:43 AM
which is not happening this year...The kids that used to sit at the kids table are now scattered across the world...DC, LA, China...Mine was the littlest kid and he's 6'1"!!!
Bruce Pierce 10:58:05 AM
hope that doesn't add to your stress ;D
KOTJames 10:58:31 AM
Friday! Jesus Show Live Stream only. 8am-4pm www.mixcloud.com/live/kotjames
Kevin Polk 10:58:59 AM
funny I just bought that ZE Christmas Album about a week ago. Did not know about it until recently.
KOTJames 10:59:00 AM
No surprise here....I wasn't asked to do anymore ZBC during the break.
JeffB (host) 11:00:03 AM
oops, you're right Bruce ! Held the calendar at the wrong angel.. or angle. .
PeterC 11:00:07 AM
@KOTJ....we're all going to start charging for advertising ...lol...looking forward to the annual jesus show!!!!
Kevin Polk 10:59:57 AM
the christmas angle
Kevin Polk 11:00:30 AM
ask the angles
JeffB (host) 11:01:57 AM
funny to be playing this song during this thread :)
Kevin Polk 11:03:39 AM
the only bad thing about Sound Syrup: every time it comes on my wallet goes $25-$50 lighter buying up new things I hear
JeffB (host) 11:07:01 AM
before the internet - i once turned down a job because the city had no college radio stations, I'd have been spending $300 a week on music. So college radio SAVES you money :)
KOTJames 11:06:38 AM
off to set up the Zappa Zoom Cornucopia of Tech that will work flawlessly! Catch the last hour later today.
Kevin Polk 11:07:22 AM
what are opinions about the new Zappa soundtrack album? worth it? My existingZappa/Mothers collection is not vast, mostly essentials
Kevin Polk 11:08:52 AM
wand is really one of the best bands out there these days; not the popular opinion but I say they are a big leg up on darlings The Oh Sees
Saginaw 11:10:03 AM
the bells were a nice touch
Andrew Herman 11:13:53 AM
Hi Saginaw! Glad you are here. I wanted to let you know that my show is moving to Tuesdays 1000-1200 for the Xmas break
KOTJames 11:13:54 AM
I know...I'm too, too.
JeffB (host) 11:14:56 AM
Thx Saginaw ! "Instant Xmas Bells" is a handy trick for Xmas sale commercials..
PiGuy 11:17:58 AM
Missing a good show....still stuck in a Zoom meeting...UGH.
PeterC 11:26:56 AM
Jeff....fantastic show..really fantastic... the 2 hour format is much better it allows us to stretch out more...I'm doing 2 hours from now on and putting the xtra hour on mixcloud if it doesn't get programmed on ZBC...until of course until the other project not to be named yet gets going
Kevin Polk 11:29:28 AM
deserta has an obvious cocteaus influence (but I like this)
Andrew Herman 11:36:06 AM
What Peter C says, Jeff. This is a great show and two hours is much better format for the flow you are able to enginner
Andrew Herman 11:39:20 AM
Going to listen to more Deserta
PeterC 11:43:21 AM
whenever I hear tones on tail I can only think of one thing. Bauhaus sound check at the Channel...peter and daniel are total dicks....met a roadie glenn who was super nice and told me they were nice enough to record something with him under another name and can they send us a copy...Sure...that thing was tones on tail
Andrew Herman 11:45:09 AM
nooooo, jeff! The world needs two hours of Sound Syrup whenever possible!
PiGuy 11:45:08 AM
I agree but also understand...
JeffB (host) 11:47:04 AM
friggin' kills me time wise though.. I know i'm very lucky to be too busy with work. if I could streamline the process..
JeffB (host) 11:47:29 AM
@PeterC: I interviewed Peter Murphy once, he was indeed kind of a dick. Apparently I royally pissed him off by mentioning Wire.
Saginaw 11:47:53 AM
Hello, AH. Happy Holidays, All!
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:49:38 AM
I remember seeing Peter Murphy on a late night talk show. He played Indigo Eyes, and then the host (Dennis Miller) compared hm to Iggy Pop. Murphy flipped him the bird and walked off stage.
Andrew Herman 11:49:20 AM
heheh. Miller deserved that
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:50:25 AM
Yeah, kinda.
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:51:24 AM
great show Jeff.
JeffB (host) 11:50:56 AM
@Jamie that's funny. Guess I deserved his rage too, but I was just talking to him about music. Dude is clearly full of himself.
PiGuy 11:52:14 AM
All queried on the matter seem to agree that Peter Murphy is a dick. Confessing that I have seen him with and without Bauhaus many times.
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:54:07 AM
@Jeff, clearly, and nobody really deserves anyone's rage in these situations. It's not like you threatened violence.
JeffB (host) 11:54:23 AM
I kind of accept that great artists will always have psychological issues.
JeffB (host) 11:55:26 AM
And Peter Murphy's rage was muted, I was just reading him, wasn't obvious. He was trying to get his song played at the radio station, so diplomacy was prudent on his part.
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:57:46 AM
I was thinking the same. That creativity has to comer from somewhere.
Bruce Pierce 11:58:06 AM
thanks for another great show Jeff - I too would love 2 hours but will take what I can get - recognizing it was once or twice a year for a few years there!
PeterC 11:59:35 AM
I used to get into it with AlJ often, but we knew each other reasonably well once upon a time. The only other person I ever got into it with just a couple of years ago with richard23 from front 242...Paul Barker sorted it out and were friends...
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:59:40 AM
I'm with Bruce...
PiGuy 11:59:08 AM
Thanks Jeff!
JeffB (host) 11:59:09 AM
My time's up! Thank you friends :)
PeterC 11:59:57 AM
greatness jeff...
