This aircheck just archived of Another Flask of Weird (KFAI, 1982-1983) spotlights avant bop & progressive bunny-hop, co-host Chuck Isle‘s “Skeleton” set & TV preview, with tight, goofy segues to boggle the Saturday morning broadcast audience limited to south Minneapolis, though northside residents like Chuck picked up the signal with some effort. Guest Andy Schultz sits in, helps spin Gong, Herbie Hancock, Max Roach, Joe McPhee, Nana Mouskouri, Rickie Lee Jones, The Art Bears, Capt. Beefheart, Elvin Jones, Dexter Gordon, King Crimson (above, Crimson lyrics from “Happy Family” which inspired the AFOW moniker). Don’t miss cameo vocal impressions by Chuck as Dean, and Jerry as…well, Jerry, r.i.p. https://archive.org/details/AnotherFlaskOfWeird-04-04-1983
