Not Ed: what does he do at Disney?
Zen Cosmos: gearing up to buy the Dope album just have to have disposable income in a future month...
Beet: My nephew works at Disney also.
Ken Jones: I'm curious when you all started listening to the Firesigns. For me, it was as a high school student in L.A. Made it easy to get all the references, like Ralph Spoilsport.
Cat: Me too, Ken.
Cat: My high school was on Sepulveda, which they hilariously misprounce
Beet: I started in the Colorado Rockies in the summer of 1970.

Cat: I wonder if that show was recorded?
Cat: I know a lot of the Ashgrove shows were.
Ken Jones: I remember listening the Dear Friends and Let's Eat on KPFK, and the Credibility Gap on KRLA, I think. They did about a 10 minute daily segment on a big AM rock station, during their afternoon news segment.
Not Ed: Zen it all came back to me like the hot kiss etc.
Not Ed: Such a fan
Cat: The Gap were great. Harry Shearer still is.
Not Ed: Ruby
Ken Jones: Harry Shearer, Michael McKean (most recently of Better Call Saul), and the late David L. Landers.
Cat: They did a final version of Exorcism on Pete's RFO podcast.
Cat: I have a wonderful Gap piece where they are the 3 stooges working for the phone company.
Cat: One of the funniest things I've ever heard.
johan amadeus myjetski: did FST ever play in the deep south?
Ken Jones: They also did a very funny and smart Who's On First bit, about rock groups instead of ball players.
Cat: It's part of a collage about Austin and the Dead:
llanwydd: I have heard that one, Ken
Cat: Grateful Firesign - My 2nd Austin bio, this was inspired by an interview Phil did on WBAI about writing a screen play for the Grateful Dead. I combined it with Jack Kerouac's story, Visions of Neal and the 3 Stooges, considering how close Neal Cassady was to the Dead. Also featured, the Credibility Gap's portrayal of the 3 Stooges during a phone strike in LA in the early 70s. Various Beat generation folks make their appearances, and Bergman tells of losing a girl friend to Neal Cassady.
llanwydd: the who, the guess who and yes
llanwydd: hilarious

Cat: you listen to it, not read, Ken.
Ken Jones: The Burns and Allen tribute with Proctor, Ossman, and Melinda plays today. I think on youtube.
Ken Jones: I'd much rather listen, than read!
Rufus_T_Firetween: That sounds like fun, Ken
Rufus_T_Firetween: love B&A
