They are not cheap but immediately I thought I might grab a CD copy for my dad
Casey (host) 10:57:18 AM
I got him the new album for today
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:59:44 AM
Oh, excellent! New music!

I first heard X's cover of that song and I played it in the car for my dad. He was the one who told me it was a Doors song
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 11:08:46 AM

Casey (host) 11:13:51 AM
Glad to have you
TAndy 11:14:08 AM
A bit late but that Wilco track ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Krista 11:15:47 AM
Dadrock is def most millennial indie now
Casey (host) 11:16:39 AM
For sure
Casey (host) 11:17:24 AM
90% of big indie singers who have a solo career make the pivot to Dadrock
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:18:31 AM
R.E.M. ♥️
Krista 11:18:38 AM
Mac Demarco was born a dadrocker and he will die a dadrocker
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:19:27 AM
Won’t end up at YachtRock?
Casey (host) 11:19:27 AM
Dadrock before dadhood: the Mac Demarco story
Casey (host) 11:19:54 AM
@Mr. M no but only because Aja was too long to fit into a 2 hour show
Casey (host) 11:20:44 AM
Definitely got the Steely Dan affliction from stealing my dad's copy of that record and him playing The Royal Scam for me as a teen
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:21:30 AM
I’m on YACHT, MoFo!!
Casey (host) 11:22:15 AM
On the subject of REM, I heard an interview the other day from a historian who wrote a book about the Athens, GA scene in the '80s. It's called Cool Town and I'm looking forward to checking it out
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:22:49 AM
I’d read that! And I want to go to there!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:23:33 AM
DANG! Another GEM!
Krista 11:23:42 AM
I got the steely Dan bug from my father in law. Dads spreading the disease!

Casey (host) 11:27:43 AM
My local record shop had a bunch of Steely Dan records for $4 one day when I was about 19. I bought all 3, kept Kay Lied and gave the other 2 to my only friends who had turntables
Casey (host) 11:27:53 AM
Wish I had held onto those though...
Krista 11:31:00 AM
Now you're flexing your "I have a cool dad" status
Casey (host) 11:31:48 AM
I think he knew this one from REM covering it, but still he knows those REM deep cuts
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:31:59 AM
Nice Selections!! 🎶🎵
Casey (host) 11:32:07 AM
Had to play this version though because it's my favorite VU album
Casey (host) 11:32:34 AM
...another one I bought on vinyl for a friend but never had a copy for myself
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:34:01 AM
sharing is caring
Casey (host) 11:35:49 AM
I was maybe 17 and dropped probably a quarter of all the money I had on 3 records before I even had a turntable. Gave it to my friend case he was the only person I knew who had one
TAndy 11:36:22 AM
About to start cleaning my place so I won't be around for a hit, so in advance thanks for the show! Thank you DJ Casey Dad!! Have a good Sunday 😁
Casey (host) 11:37:30 AM
Thank you for your kind words!
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 11:39:47 AM
Is that grateful dead feedback in the background?
Casey (host) 11:40:23 AM
It is! When I started here I went by Casey Jones and we have a copy of Live/Dead at the studio I used as the bed
Casey (host) 11:41:40 AM
I miss the copy of EVOL we have too cause there was a locked groove at the end I would mix in with it
Casey (host) 11:42:35 AM
Shout out to the kid whose probably around 20 now who called in to request Expressway to Yr Skull and led to me discovering that
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:50:17 AM
This show needs two more hours!! I’m cry
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 11:51:24 AM
the Best Photo!! I’m cry again
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 11:51:25 AM
thanks @casey! Could listen to feedback/space all day lol. This show is such a magnificent tribute!
Chef Emeril Lagasse 🍳 11:52:02 AM
Still amazing to see dead & co play beautiful dissonance and ambience to packed stadiums!
Casey (host) 11:53:18 AM
Thank you Mr. M and Emeril!
