Radio Lost and Found Presents: Rock or Die 2!

July 12, 2014

My pal DJ F.U. and I scraped the bottom of the by-now fetid and rotten punk rock barrel to serve up another round of hits, misses and all out mayhem, in this sequel to last year’s punk rock massacre Rock Or Die!

It was a lot of fun. F.U. played some amazing sets. We had just learned minutes before the show that the last living original Ramone, Tommy Erdelyi, had just passed away. Neither of us had brought any Ramones records but we found a few CDs in KBOO’s library. Outside World host Daniel kindly carried the tribute a few minutes into his show.

Hope you enjoy the show. We had a lot of fun and I’m sure we’ll do it again.

A Four Hour Trip Through the Life, Times and Words of William S. Burroughs

July 8, 2014

I’ve been meaning to post this for some time but didn’t. I meant to present a more edited, expanded version, using stuff that didn’t make the cut by airtime and to also address the censoring of FCC-unfriendly language that was necessary to the show’s running time before what we call in radio ‘safe harbor‘ (you can’t say shit before 10pm on the public airwaves). I also wanted to cut out the frequent pitching breaks, as this was a pledge drive special for the station. We actually raked in a fair amount of cash for the station! Yay! So, think of that when you hear them.

But here it is. It was a joint effort between Daniel F. of The Outside World, Mr. CutUpSound Jim Larrance and myself and it aired on May 9th. Jim and I created montages to form the foundation of the program and Daniel deftly hosted and played music and Burroughs bits where he felt so moved and Jim also did some pretty cool live cutting up in the studio. It was a fun collaboration and I hope you like it.

I still might make the blown out, cut-up, director’s cut megamix version of this in the future.

Y: RFK Assassination Record

June 9, 2014

Odd little piece of Robert F. Kennedy assassination memorabilia that was assembled and produced by Doug Moody of Mystic Studios – who many may recall as the producer of those wonderful and sometimes wretched Mystic punk rock compilations of the mid-80s.

It’s a collection of audio from around the time of RFK’s assassination. It includes interviews with eyewitnesses, from people who came to believe immediately following that tragic event that perhaps there was a conspiracy to take his life, some recollections from people that knew Sirhan Sirhan and also some audio verite from the actual assassination. Each portion of the LP either begins or ends with a key speech by Robert Kennedy – including his chillingly ironic violence in America speech.

Apparently, Doug or perhaps RFK conspiracy theorist filmmaker Theodor Carach tried to sell it to Zappa’s Straight label but it ended up not coming out. I found this quote somewhere but lost my notes from whence it came (probably from one of the more esoteric corners of communities of people who collect Zappa interviews):

“A man came to us with some tapes. He had been making a documentary album about the assassination of Robert Kennedy and he had interviewed all these people and he had put together this really fantastic album. That was when we had the Bizarre label and the deal with Warner Brothers on the bizarre label was we could bring projects to them and they had the right to refuse them and they heard that and that’s why it never came out. They were afraid of it.”

I don’t think the film from where this audio comes from ever came to fruition, so perhaps because of or in spite of that, Moody assembled it into an LP and it eventually came out on Solar Records, but I am unsure of the year. It has a more-or-less functional entry on Discogs. Given that the Warner/Bizarre/Straight deal only lasted from 1969 to 1973, I am guessing it came out somewhere within that (missed) window of opportunity – give or take a year or two. Someone on Collector Frenzy talks about having a copy signed by Ted Carach and dated ’74, so we know it was no later than that. Back and to the left. Back and to the left.

The cover is an interesting illustration made on a typewriter simply using the letter ‘y’. Clever, eh?

Repost: Marlin Perkins – The Cat’s Meow

Not the cover. I have no idea what the cover looked like.

A two-sided 7″ 33 1/3 RPM single put out by Norden Labs to promote a feline distemper vaccine, featuring TV’s Marlin Perkins.
Marlin, as you all know, was host of the long-running television program Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom from the 60′s and well into the 70′s
Here Marlin waxes scientifically about the existence of the Abominable Snowman and somehow – on side two – manages to relate it to the vaccine Felocine.

Repost: Crazy Found Record: Don and John Lampien

May 23, 2014

I Won’t Say I Love You/BW The Sheik of Araby

Low budget looking 7 inch 45 rpm I found in a christian thrift store.
I couldn’t pass it up; it had all the marks of a homemade record or at the very least a vanity recording of the type where some truck driver scraped up enough money to cut a record. Plus, it was from nearby Seaside Oregon, so my curiosity was doubly piqued.

How can I describe these recordings? On the a-side, one of the Lampien brothers (I’m assuming) croons a heartfelt love song while someone does a fair Helen Wiggins of The Shaggs impersonation, barely keeping time and switching the accent from snare to high-hat mid-song.

A-Side: I Won’t Say I Love You

On the flip, we have a swinging country song that incorporates the old standard The Sheik of Araby and while the drumming Lampien manages to keep time well enough this time around (I’m guessing the boys learned how studio playback worked by this point), the song incorporates a Donald Duck-like voice as counterpoint to the singing.

B-Side: The Sheik of Araby

Crazy!

I immediately rushed back to the store and bought every copy they had.

Repost: Sears, Inc.: Demonstration Disc Sears #9235

May 23, 2014

A favorite weird found seven inch I’ve had for years.

It’s a one-sided, 33 1/3 RPM that apparently was a training aid for stereo salespeople.

There’s somewhat of an attempt at production value and it’s plenty humorous, with a sort of Gary Owens-like announcer/narrator and a cute female voice that responds to everything with a coo or interjection like ‘groovy‘ or ‘dynamite‘.

The narrative runs us through the various features of the 9235 (whatever that was) with music and the sounds of adjustments being made.

The opening narrator refers to the recording as ‘a tape’, so this may have also been on cassette, open reel or 8-track tape and the inclusion on 7 inch may have been an afterthought.

It was plenty hammered by the time I found it – without a cover in the bottom of some 50 cent bin at a thrift store. I made no attempts to clean it up or compress it. I exported it at 320kbps, so have at it. It could probably use some de-clicking and some de-essing, especially on the girl’s parts. But there’s plenty of cool dialog and one-liners for you DJs looking for cool retro soundbites. As far as I know, this isn’t anywhere on the web.

I’ve played this many times on my radio shows. I really like it.

I included also one isolated sample in the zipfile because it’s both handy and I like it.
