I just wanted to provide a little more info about the recordings of "All My Bitchy Friends" "Under The Boardwalk" and "Time of My Life." All of these were recorded at locations of the SuperStar Studios chain, though it's impossible to tell which ones from the recordings (many of them were in theme parks). I know this because I worked for the company and I recognise the backing tracks which were custom recorded for our use. I'm glad you all enjoy them. But hearing recordings like these just gives me stress : ).

The vocal of the little girl/boy singing along to Phoebe Snow's Poetry Man, is really eerie....but at the same beautiful and pitch perfect.

My name is Michael Hansen. I love stuff like this. Here is something I discovered:
"13 - Mary Mae - Carry On My Wayward Son - Found by R. Stevie Moore in a box of cassettes which were traded in to a New Jersey Sam Goodys outlet for new tapes. Edited By Irwin Chusid. "

Oh really???

A girl. A microphone. A Kansas song.

I am speechless over this recording. This came to me courtesy of a cassette mix I received from a friend in Iowa back in 1998 when I was doing tape trades. I have since lost contact with my friend and kept this cassette in a shoebox in my closet. When Otis asked me to curate a day or two I decided to blow the dust off this song and submit it.

For years I have always pondered the origins of this tape. It wasn"t until my involvement in this project that the answer to my question was answered. According to different sources this tape was rescued by R. Stevie Moore from a tape bin in the back of a Sam Goody. Several people have also contacted me that they too have a copy of this song and were wondering the origins of this. Well let"s not keep a good thing to ourselves, let us share this great musical find with the rest of the world!

This version of "Carry On My Wayward Son" has been played on WFMU a few times, and was included on the show "The Audio Kitchen". The singer's name is Mary May, and the tape as played on WFMU starts off with her interviewing members of her family (who say her name a couple times) with the strange stereo separation that distinguishes the singing selection that was posted on 365 Days. (The host of the show, The Professor, indicates that this recording is one of the items that gave him the idea for his great WFMU show.) If you go to the Audio Kitchen archived shows at you'll hear a mono version of the same song starting the August 2, 2000 show. And if you go to the very end of the August 29, 2001 show (about 56 minutes into the one-hour program), you'll hear a stereo copy of the interview portion of the tape, before Mary May starts singing. So if anyone's wondering whether or not they are the singer, perhaps the interview portion will jog their memory.

has anyone else contacted you saying "that might be me!" vis a vis this song? i have this weird feeling that this actually *might* be me singing on this song. i was constantly making tapes of myself singing with records (as well as doing fake radio shows) through most of the 70s, and i have a vague recollection of doing this song. i had leftoverture. i played it a lot. i would have been 12 or 13 at the time. and it actually does sound somewhat like me. my husband has heard some of my other childhood tapes and agrees that there is a striking similarity. the only thing that takes me aback is just how gut-wrenchingly bad and off-key the singing is at times. but then again, i never figured anyone would hear the tapes i made but me, and i usually hammed it up with a devil-may-care attitude. i don't know if the geography is right, though. i lived in the baltimore-washington corridor, and isn't r. stevie moore from arizona or something? we did have a sam goody in the mall, though. (but didn't everyone?)
