This past weekend, I flew over 5500 miles to see one of my favorite bands play 2 concerts. On top of seeing them, I met so many people whose work I have admired for many years: Jim Foster, Keith Hartel, Jesse Malin, Vicki Torch, Tommy Koprowski, and this guy- Pat Duncan.
I went to say goodbye to Dave Scott after the 2nd show and he introduced me to Pat- I told him how much those WMFU shows meant to me and went to show him the sac music archive page- and he tells me he loves the site without even knowing I was behind it! It was mind blowing. Tommy & Vicki also told me how much they enjoy the site- it’s nice to be appreciated. Thank you.
Pat talked about somewhat randomly falling into the WFMU DJ/ Thursday night live host role, and I could totally relate… kinda like falling into this hobby 37 years ago.
The cool thing about Pat’s show was that he welcomed local bands and touring bands into the studio. Some of those appearances became legendary (Green Day, Jawbreaker, Queers, Operation Ivy are a few off the top), while others became some of the only quality documents of the band in a live setting. This one falls into that second category- 23 more minutes was on Very Small Records, David Hayes’ label post-Lookout. Good stuff.
From Jason Ross’ collection.
