Bu..bu..bu...Bubba's Brain: Don't kill me yet, my brain just seems dead...
klokwkLivingWillpower: gotta walk; just put din-din in the freezer (and rin-tin-tin was fit to be tied; now they gotta share)
klokwkLivingWillpower: I think Richard Nixon had one done up by Hoover, Chuck
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: CT: Merlyn could probably give you direct directions, but I think you can find it on the FST website
Charles Throat: We used to call him The Chronologist
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Firesign Chronology
Charles Throat: I googled today, couldn't find it
Charles Throat: not one detailed enough
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: CT: Check the FST website
Charles Throat: OK
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: IIRC there's an extremely detailed one put together by Freditor...Nino used to host it
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 9:11 PM and ah,clem steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: hi Clem
Charles Throat: The radio show I was asking about before is 2-21-72 - and is also side 2 of Dear Firends #12

Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Clem: You deserve a break today
ah,clem: tks
Charles Throat: aw, clem
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: CT" Dear Friends shows were 1 hour so don't quite understand what you mean by side 2
ah,clem: at least this way I can chat for a bit
Charles Throat: Dexter they were distributed on LP's
Charles Throat: there were only 100 sets made
Dexter Lifesupport Fong CT: Yes so that side two would be the second half hour of one show
Charles Throat: You oughtta know tat ;)
Charles Throat: Yes
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Lemme go find my copy of the chronology

Dexter Lifesupport Fong: CT: What was that date again?
Charles Throat: In my Big Book of Plays it only says for February 1971 "Dear Friends took a vacation"
Bu..bu..bu...Bubba's Brain spits out his Boobie Chew. "This isn't Wrigley's" he screams, looking at his chest.
Charles Throat: 2-21-71nor 2-17-71, there's some confusion
||||||||| Catherwood leads llanwydd inside, makes a note of the time (9:19 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.

Bu..bu..bu...Bubba's Brain: I'm regular. Had my fiber this morning...
Charles Throat: Yeah that's the show - it's funny trhat they refer to him as if he's there several times, and as I said Annalee is there
Charles Throat: Phil "gives" him a toy robot - wondere why they were pretending
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: As I said last week, Austin may have been there but was engineering...maybe Earl wasn't there to do it
Charles Throat: Ahh yes I remember you saying that - but think of all the times Earl managed to talk
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: True....

Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Hi Bambi
Bambi: hey E!, Bubba, Dex, Klok, Charles, Dex ... great to see ya all

Elayne: That's a mercy, anyhow.

Bambi: I got a personal email today about my blog ... very interesting email too
Bambi: Dex, Dex ... really, really :-)

Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Cat: This DF show is chock a block with bits they ended up in the "DF" double album
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Merl: That's great
Bambi: A Mac user emailed to tell me I should get my facts straight and my opinion just showed how little I understood the Mac community.
llanwydd: what is this WICA show? Is it FST?
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Clem...I love this show...it's much better than the Apprentice
Elayne: Ohhh dear...
cease: i hear em dex
Charles Throat: I grew up with "Dear Friends" the album - it was great to finally hear the context
cease: so rarely its always new to me
ah,clem: thanks, Dex
cease: good news, merl
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Bambi: I'm a member of the *Big Mac* community
Elayne: Fran, most of what you post is a little over my head, I must admit...
Bambi: Seems they didn't like the fact that I said that Jobs sued their own mac fans, so what luck would DVD John have against Jobs
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Charles: Couldn't agree more
llanwydd: I haven't heard "Dear Friends" in twenty years or more but I still remember most of it
Bambi: So, I edited the posting on DVD John to include the ZDNet article that calls them mac enthusiasts (that got sued) ... last I heard enthusiast and fan were pretty close...not identical but pretty darn close.

Bambi: don't have The Truss CDs ... what are they?
Dexter Lifesupport Fong: Merl: Serpentine

Charles Throat: Earl collected all the mp3s of old shows circulating in the newsgroups - nearly all the old radio shows
cease: i only know of them, dont have them but i know they include my 6 hour hours
Bambi: Phil and Dave said we could run their stuff because we were non-profit ... was just wondering if Hour, Hour were FST?
