Rufus_T_Firetween: ** 9/1/01 FIREZINE RELEASES LIVE PROCTOR & BERGMAN CD - http://www.firezine.net/currant/index.htm
EWeston: Delayed borgorigmus didn't make the cut
cease: there are an ocean of firesign things that never got released, outside of the gray market.
cease: it surprises and depresses me that when firesign began in 66, flourished on LA radio in 67 and on, in the vicinity of Nobody recorded them off the radio.
cease: LA is not only a Big City, it is and was then a city where many people had tape recorders.
llanwydd: I would have recorded them
llanwydd: I used to record off the radio a lot when I was a kid
cease: I think Timm did. other chatters have showed up here who recorded some stuff.
llanwydd: infrequently off television as well but usually the radio
cease: I seem to be the only one with copies of FAR TOO MUCH of their early work, and half a century of it.
PrincipalPoop: poopaine?
Beet: Being on the opposite coast I didn't have the opportunity.
llanwydd: I would have been dying to get their radio stuff if I knew it was available
cease: they were loved on the radio then. why was I the only person recording them? that is not logical.
Koyemsi: I suppose it's always possible that someone did, and doesn't know who to tell
llanwydd: yes I was on the east coast as well. new jersey
cease: no, Koy. the lads have been searching for those folks for decades now. Taylor has spent a large portion of his life in search of their old stuff.
cease: he's their archivist.
PrincipalPoop: something from the 60s? maybe forgotten or considered a hallucination...
Beet: lol
cease: i think wbai played some early stuff, llan. could you recieve wbai from where you lived?
Koyemsi: Oh, I know, cease. But hope springs eternal
cease: in pre internet days, that was indeed the case, koy. but those days are long gone
PrincipalPoop: Dr. Demento and the king biscuit flour hour is all I recall
llanwydd: I heard people talk about wbai but I dont remember ever hearing it
cease: Good point, Koy. The lads, in particular Bergman, always preached that.
Koyemsi: I can imagine someone having recordings and not realizing that anyone cares
llanwydd: I used to record CBS Mystery Theatre and WABC
llanwydd: WOR was my standby though. I listened to that all the time
cease: or they died and their descendents know not what they have inherited.
Koyemsi: Very much so, especially by this time!
cease: proc and his mother used to record Bob and Ray from the 50s and those recordings later became part of Bob and Ray's DVD releases. so it is possible
Koyemsi: Firesign radio recordings aren't like antique tables; it's a tremendously niche market
llanwydd: I recorded bob and ray on wor
cease: my tapes from those days have mostly dissolved.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: i had a bob & ray record from 68 or 69
cease: CD, not DVD, as far as I know.
llanwydd: I was listening to them in the early 70s
cease: koy: well...they were a Big Thing in mid 60s LA. that's a Lot of People
Koyemsi: One of my many obsessions is the national museums of Canada as they were in the 70s and 80s. It's almost impossible to find photos of their exhibits from that time
||||||||| Mark Time invites you to watch and listen to Firesign’s XM Radio Performances Watch The Firesign Theatre In Action!
Koyemsi: I'm sure these photos exist, but they're buried in a hundred random people's photo albums and home movies, and they don't share them because it hasn't crossed their mind that anyone would care
cease: My cousin gave me a cd of a tape recording her had and my dad did in the late 40s. dont know how old tape is, but it was widely owned in LA in the mid 60s

llanwydd: I wanted to go to expo 67. I knew a kid who went
cease: I did a collage trilogy about McLuhan a few monthes ago. He seemed to me a major influence on Expo 67
cease: it was a multi-sensory experience, lots of screens. very much like Firesign preached, use your brain on manyh levels at once.
EWeston: Probably couldn't find the key
cease: one of the pavillions gave you a pill that as you sucked it, changed flavours.
EWeston: The keyhole on 911's is on the left of the steering wheel
cease: and the more yhou sucked on it, the more flavourfs you got.
EWeston: Clutch is a bit tricky too
cease: the multi[screen movies, of which there were many, were VERY MUC H what the Firesign wanted our brains to do.H
cease: sangria, my drink of choice
Koyemsi: I helped an old man carry a TV up to his apartment the other day. When we got there, I discovered he already had four TVs. He must have had the same idea
EWeston: Twas a nicely modeled turd
cease: sounds like the movie The Man Who Fell to Earth, Koy,
