Harvard Oswald had a body double as did his Ma! (coast to coast
AM site). 0500 WHRB. Murder ballad orgy! Ken and Gee Julie lissen

Monntag 9 dec 19. Monday Night football on WAJR,
Morgantown, west virginny, followed by Coast to Coast AM. Climate
Change Perspectives was 0100 to 0300, but the second hour was whack!
How to Suffer ... in ten easy steps by William Arnst and
it's available on Amazon!
caveat your own damn self! Bumper musik: "talkin' in your sleep'
by the Romantics! After a 0645 reveille, i switched to WMBR
If Six was Nine and caught Back in your Life again
by Jon Richman ("featuring the recently deceased Asa
Brebner"), preceded by a kim Shattuck Muffs POST-
humous release! I needed to clear the air! If only it were 1975
at Boston's Other Side again!"......

"Til Tuesday 10 Dec 19. after supping at S and S, which
was Inn Square Men's Bar, Plan Nine (eric stumpo RIP) and Hopelessly
Obscure (Jim Condon RIP) I gazed into Lilypad Inman.
Kenny Werner AND his berklee fall ensemble (like
when Ken Kaiser played with Doctor Saturn and the men From mars
in college),sounding damn good AND! wikipedia: Kenny Werner had
played with Archie Shepp! who'd played with John Coltrane and
I LOVE the wikipedia section telling whom Kerouac name-checked
playing jazz in On the Road (i.e. "we
got stoned and listened to a Coltrane album" etc. )....(I
even tried this at home! "eight miles high".....)......"In
My Room" (yes, I have same Huguenot Mayflower ancestor as
the Bleach Boys), Dynamic Superiors album and in future, perhaps,
songs on this album sampled in both polish and Finnish hip-hop!
WAJR, Morgantown West virginia had on high school football game
and 0100 is Coast to Coast AM BUT 0300: UFOs, ETs, and George
Adamski. Glenn Steckling continuing on his father's UFO work,
HIS books: We Discovered Alien bases on the Moon II
and Behind the Flying Saucer mystery II.
I'd wager i listened 0300-0400, 0700 reveille and WHRB orgy was
Acidic Silk Goat Orgy, music from the
goat-ridden, acidic Black Sea. Bulgarian folk music then Georgia
'always always always on my mind"! reminded me of getting
stoned with Jim Condon (when alive) listening to Pipes of brian
Jones or some such from Morroco....how about Miss lyn's Gregorian
chants lp? WKEN now has two listeners! Both feline and this morning
Miss Raggs was curled up on my flamboyant top hat as my Dorothy
Love-Coates and the Gospel Harmonettes on nashboro were wailin'
like Lil Richard! a Skippy White purchase, in a bvox since 2013!!
"Kenne, what are cats doin' upstairs with you?" if i
could, I'd have them wear berets and lissen to beatnik jazz! "Three
Cool Cats" !!!!!".......

"day of Wodin 11 dec 19. club linehan-ago-go
practice on Gizmas songs for Geezer's west Quincy garage party.
Drove to Groupie Towers II with John Keegan and
the Grateful Dead playing a 20 June 74 atlanta as we discussed the
merits of "Bobby" (Weir) singing country music and "Big
River" by JR Cash in particular. Rainman sez!: Bowie's Diamond
Dogs tour played Rochester NY Monday 17 June and i was more into
Bowie than Dead that year (doin' the twirly dance in platforms?
I think Knott!). And I guess I gradjiated Brockport NY high monday
24 June 74, meet "Winner by elimination" but more important,
hear "Radar Love" on Rochester radio versus two months
previous in Brooklyn, hangin' with the Gruberger Brothers. Coast
to Coast AM about 0300: The Quantum Akashic Field,
which centers on out of body experiences, which
is certainly fodder for new songs. Lastly 0600-0800, let me praise
WMBR's Pontoon Palace! Mind blown when Dave
Clark Five's "concentration baby" came out! listed
as "1967 psychedelic but kinda more like Paul Revere and the
Raiders singing "Let Me" "be your best Bette"!
I researched and i never owned the Everybody Knows
album but i MUST have had the 45; THIS Five were good for "Everybody
Knows" (ballad) b/w "Concentration baby" (rocker
on b-side). It' s on youtube! But to cap off my morning at 0745
or so, NY Dolls "Dont start me to talkin'"
as produced by Shadow Morton, THE man whom produced Vanilla Fudge.
great stuff all around but I was busking at Leon Rich /
Outpost 186 tonight so tickets for 930 pm for Parasite
at Collidge Corner NOT needed...reason: "I'm starring in the
last Movie! Dennis Hopper's stoned-out reality show 1971 as seen
at SUNY Brockport back in '72; Christine Lavin as an undergrad!".......

day of Thor, 12 dec 19. Captain easychord, my
facebook friend of six years! (sounds like a Thursday night at
tavern end of world) joined Gee Julie and i at
Inn Square Men's Deli and then we went to Leon Rich's busker night
(Jan/Feb/March, second Thor's day always and DO go!). Holiday
party, let me remember what I heard....Roland Pearsall
"Endless Sleep" (covered by R. Gordon/ L. Wray, i think).
Sharon Crumrine of Ginger Ibex, on upright piano, played
a tango then tried explaining the G / C / D progression to me
and said i needed to play it (the tango)...that WOULD be interesting!
(I'm lucky I can manage two chords on my Portugese 45s!). Captain
easychord did that John Lennon Christmas song chords are D/E/A/D
!!! Ken and Captain did "be more flamboyant" / "that's
cool" and "reincarnation" (he just learnt chords
at supper table! ). A fellow did some Mississippi John Hurt ,
good fingerpickin' . oh yes! Ethan from Valhalla Kittens
did a solo bass thang but when he got up to play "heard it
through the grapevine" with Kevin and Sean Deidre:
holy shit! and "why dont you do right"; Sean Dedidre
sustained a vocal note equal to Ella or Memorex OR the Dells "stay
in my corner"! No glasses shattered tho...a quick run to
Lily pad for Happy the Clown
and it's fuckin' goth night at the jazz club! Should i quote Gee
Julie? "it looks like manray"! Schmel Herbie Hind and
Sway were in Jetset in '85, but 20 (?) years
later took a page out of Jesus and Mary Chain and added a drum
machine and mucho feedback. The light show reminded me of Exploding
Plastic Inevitable covering metal machine Muzak, a lot of drone
here, deep, goth Sway vocals (he turnt me onto Heroes when it
was at TT's a decade ago) and in the end, this rivaled early '80s
Kill Slug! More gigs for them soon?! i talked to some of the bands
and since Anderson Mar be my homegurl (RIP BUT "from Rochester")
maybe I'll mix Goth with the rock bands with the buskers!!! "Let
us all sing this song all together!" Obviously, I had yet
another miserable , "No Fun " knight....."NOT!!!"
(that '90s catch phrase was asinine but bring back it, grunge
and Beavis and Butthead!!!!)".....

Friday the 13th December 2019. "Hard Day's Night" "'waitin'
for a train" (with Bobby McGee) my Facebook notice comes from
Gizmo Eddie Flowers about death of Roy
A. Loney, Flaming Groovies singer. summer '74, basment
apartment of Beyond Our Control, Bloomington Indiana on Atwater,
I think Eddie and i DAILY listened to WIUS copy of Flaming Groovies
Flamingo. Later yesterday Gizmo Rich
Coffee posted "thanks" to Eddie and i for turning
him onto the Groovies and I remember the three of us in Rich's room
(still at home) listening to Teenage Head;
April '76, Highland, Indiana, i know we'd recorded first Gizmos
e.p. Everyone else (Groovies fans) have their tributes on facebook,
but from '74 (first hearing Groovies) to now; 45 (RPM?) years of
music and rest in peace Roy A. Loney and I'll see
you at the clubs next week"......
