    Your favorite LONG tracks

    You're working as a DJ in the overnight shift at WQXZ (The Mighty Q-104, The Rock of De Noc) during an era when radio stations when still locally owned, and DJs still picked out their own music, subject to a flexible formula crafted by an easygoing program manager.

    At about 3:00 AM, you feel the urge. You gotta' go ... and bad. You also know it's not something where you can rush back and escape dead air if you've got a four-minute single playing, either; you've got to spend at least eight or nine minutes in the head; preferably longer. What do you put on the turntable before you go? Don't just pick out any old long tracks, but instead those you want to hear while you're "laying some cable out to the transmitter tower".

    My picks:

    1) Pink Floyd: Pigs: Three Different Ones
    2) Led Zeppelin: Achilles Last Stand
    3) Rush: 2112 suite (technically, it's one long song)

    EDIT:

    Found the old 1980s-era bumper sticker.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Now, if I was at the turntables, and really needed time, my first choice would be:
    Whipping Post, At Filmore East: The Alman Brother’s Band --- 23:07

    If I only needed a little, long time:
    Ashes are burning, Renaissance --- 11:20

    Any song by Barry Manilow. They must have been long, I've never been able to listen to a whole track. Oh...my bad, I just noticed that it says "favorite".

    Agreed! The whole Red Rocks show is amazing. Two Step from Central park is also really good. One of my favorites though is Jimi Thing from the Tampa, Florida show during the 2004 tour. Dave inserted a nice several minute scat which just played to his stage presence and added to the overall kick-assedness of the tune

    Pink Floyd - Echoes is one of my all-time favorite tunes. That, and I also noticed you work in Appleton....I used to work in Appleton and my mom lives in Neenah but I'm from Milwaukee. Nice to find a fellow Dairy Stater

    Off-topic:
    Even though I wish that I was working in the Appleton area, I actually just live here, at least until I can find my break. I grew up here and I love the area, but pickings have been pretty slim. ArcView and I have never gotten along and that has held me back. (Just give me some onion-skin paper and colored pens and I'll be in heaven!) OTOH, I can only keep trying, pressing forward.
