I love this. I assembled something similar way back in 1987. Scraps from the media junkyard.

So tonight I waited too long to have dinner so was woozy from hunger.

For whatever reason, I clicked on this and listened to it while I was making dinner.

In my preteen/early teen days I had the bad habit of falling asleep with the television on.

For some weird syndication reason, Sally Jesse Raphael was on around 2 am in our market at that time.

I had weird dreams because of this.

Thanks for recreating that feeling.

I have my Danny Elfman iTunes station on and it's currently playing Oingo Boingo and I'm not entirely sure it's a good idea to cross that with Sally Jesse Raphael but it's definitely happening oh god help

Hmm, maybe one of you remembers a sound collage from the 80s, with the voice of a radio or tv talk show host greeting callers by their city - and everything else removed. "Detroit, hello. Poughkeepsie, hello. Atlanta, hello."

Imagine hearing a copy of this in 1990 from some guy specializing in bootlegs without the larger Internet for context. I'm asking you to do it because I can't.

If you like this, you'll like Flee Past Ape's Elf by Orchid Spangiafora (previously), one of the classics of late-70s, early-80s noise.

heathkit, I dig that quote, and was impressed by it when I first heard it as the intro to the Jacques Lu Cont Essential Mix. Like others, I thought that the line, from an interview in 1969, was Jim predicting the future of music like he was some kind of savant.

But in looking for context, I was reminded that it's hardly a big stretch for anyone involved in music at the time, and especially someone who, like Morrison, had affinities with the avant-garde. You could even argue he was behind the times, with Jean-Jacques Perrey making a more musical side of musique concrète back in the late 1950s and 1960s.

Holy shit, she's 78? What happened to my youth?

She was old then, so where you, now you are both older.

I'm playing this and davebush's tape (above) at the same time. It's even better.

You see that little button that says "Dolby"? Yeah, push that.

Also, rip Thomas Dolby
posted by nosila at 3:03 PM on September 20, 2013

That's Ray Dolby, nosila. Thomas is still with us.

The thought of losing two important Dolbys in one month gave me the horrors.
