  Mon. 2/14/11 12:16pm BSI:

  Mon. 2/14/11 12:19pm Emile:

What a set!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:21pm Cecile:

Fondue for dinner, cherries jubilee for dessert. Be careful with the sterno. You don't want to set the hanging plants in the restaurant on fire.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:22pm BSI:

Where's my amber-colored glass ashtray table?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:22pm frenchee:

Ha, Cecile! Yeah, the ferns don't like FIRE
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:23pm pierre:

i second Clay Pigeon on the "Happy Valentine's Day everybody!!!"
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:24pm frenchee:

omg, "Him"!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:24pm dc pat:

fondue sounds gooooooooood. But not tonight--we will act like Spartans tonight. Stark lights, gray stew, water...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:24pm frenchee:

WOW, my mom lives in Palm Harbor! Which bar???
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:24pm glenn:

a friend of mine has a 45 of, wait for it - wayne newton covering purple haze. i mention this because it seems to me that if there was a clay pigeon favourite record it would probably be amon duul ii doing the mel torme songbook.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:25pm cosmic matrix:

please please please can i order a pu-pu platter? in 1978, i was three.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:25pm Cecile:

Clay, man. You must have had the same radio in Iowa as we did in Upper Michigan. FLASHBACK.
ooga chucka ooga chucka ooga ooga ooga ooga chucka.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:25pm cosmic matrix:

i always wondered--is this is balinese monkey chant??
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:26pm glenn:

was that redbone?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:26pm cosmic matrix:

man do you need an old neumann to captyure a shaker like that....?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:26pm still b/p:

Never mind the plants....A touch of flame and this print polyester shirt will go up like "HA-WHUFF!"
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:26pm Cecile:

No it was Blue Swede doing Hooked on a Feeling.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:26pm Irene:

Ah, you're doin' me proud! The only version of Hooked On a Feelin' that exists for me is B.J. Thoms' version. Thanks Clay!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:27pm Cecile:

But, Clay, if you have my favorite love song, Troglodyte, that would be great.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:27pm Robert:

Is Al Nordine the one whose act Ken Nordine has been doing? I was sure when I first heard that guy or someone just like him on the radio that his name was Val Nordine, so maybe it was Al I was hearing as "Val" and then Ken stole his act or name or something.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:27pm frenchee:

I think I might've bought an Arnie Aka-Nui LP at a Palm Harbor thrift store once upon a time. The ex got it.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:27pm glenn:

blue swede right. redbone did....... i wanna say indian reservation, but that might be someone else.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:27pm dc pat:

man, I wish my parents were here--they'd love this. My mom will be 81 tomorrow.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:28pm frenchee:

"come and get your love"
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:28pm BSI:

Strange flashback triggered by this playlist: In 1978, I discovered that our canary-yellow shag rug was so thick, you could body-surf down the stairs and only suffer minor injuries.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:28pm Parq:

Robert, it's always been Ken, going all the way back to the early 70s (much like ther rest of this show). Irene, ogga-chuckas aren't your style? But you realize, of course, they'd be totally Clay.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:29pm Cecile:

gotta get a woman gotta get a woman gotta get a woman.

I'LL SOCK IT TO YOU BABY!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:29pm Cecile:

OMG. The Rollers.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:29pm glenn:

all this a.m. radio stuff from my formative years is in my cellular memory, to some extent.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:30pm Bad Ronald:

The Rollers... I love you Clay!!!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:30pm Cecile:

Yeah, glenn.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:30pm glenn:

i've been to bay city.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:31pm autodidactic:

Plaid high waters!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:31pm Robert:

Parq, then could Ken have been calling his act "'al Nordine", i.e. "at Nordine" or "according to Nordine"?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:31pm Carmichael:

Hey Clay, Thanks (sorta) for the Rupert Holmes. And I don't even like pina coladas.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:34pm Brian in UK:

I can smell White Plains in the air. The group that is.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:36pm Cecile:

let me guess, Pilot?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:36pm Cecile:

DAMN. I am good.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:37pm Cecile:

I'd never heard this song before today.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:37pm PMD:

Oh, so sorry I missed the first half hour!
@Carmichael, I passed you on the way to Tahoe this weekend.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:37pm Carmichael:

David Paton, Billy Lyall, Stuart Tosh and Ian Bairnson.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:37pm Clay:

Good guess, Cecile!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:37pm Cecile:

A couple of those guys went on to sing in the Alan Parsons Project.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:38pm Carmichael:

All of them except Lyall, who went solo.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:39pm Cecile:

PJ Olsson, who was in my sister's class in high school sings with Parsons now. The only show in the US Parsons played a few years back was at MTU in Houghton, MI, my hometown. Olsson's dad was the head of the music department there.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:39pm dc pat:

I always forget did McCartney write this one? If not he should have...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:39pm Carmichael:

PMD, did you wave at the Auburn Blvd. exit??
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:39pm frenchee:

Danny Stiles always plays this song! His wife loved it...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:40pm Cecile:

Don't ask my why I know so much about the Alan Parsons Project.

I love Gilbert O' Sullivan.
No, dcp, Macca wrote the Bonzo Dog Band's "I'm the Urban Spaceman".
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:40pm Chris:

aaaahhhhh lone again naturally.... romance (sigh**)
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:40pm Carmichael:

Cecile, I know PJ pretty well. Met him through a mutual friend.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:40pm Mike East:

...on your radio dials!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:41pm glenn:

and produced it, and played bass on it.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:41pm noah:

These songs. I have a big ol' dumb grin on my face.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm Cecile:

He appeared on the Bonzos record as "Apollo C. Vermouth."

Clay, can you help a sistta out and play some 10CC.

Really? My sister is a really good friend of his older brother's. I used to answer the phone rudely when he called. She was in 7th grade and had more dates than I did, and i was a senior!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm Chris:

and "naturally" this song comes from the most maligned of musical decades -- the 70s!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm frenchee:

I heart the Bonzo Doo-dahs
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm Brian in UK:

Was he called Percy Thrillington?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm Frank Lee:

I'm telling you, Cafe Jacques would hit the spot here. It'd fit right in.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm PMD:

@ C - I waved at the Carmichael exit!
So, we are doing sad love songs too?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:42pm Cecile:

frenchee, mine and my husband's song is "Hunting Tigers".
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:43pm Cecile:

We actually met to "nights in white satin", but we both hate that song, so we went with the Bonzos.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:43pm frenchee:

hunting tigers in India-yuh!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:43pm Carmichael:

Cecile, I was at the Houghton concert. Full orchestra, and Peej's parents were there too. 1st and only time I've ever been to Michigan.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:43pm glenn:

death cab for cutie, obviously, and jollity farm.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:43pm Brian in UK:

Out in Out in Out in India
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:44pm BSI:

Shakin' the shirt......
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:44pm Cecile:

they don't use forks or serviettes.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:44pm still b/p:

Something like 10CC's Hotel...?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:44pm frenchee:

Cecile, "Nights in White Satin" is an epic opus.We used to call them the Fruity Blues.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:44pm Carmichael:

Rockalizer Baby!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:45pm PMD:

I'd like some Meatloaf! (and not the edible kind) :-)
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:45pm Cecile:

That is SO WEIRD. Yep, that's my hometown! I remember doing a TV class project and taping PJ's dad Milt while he was conducting (the rather good) Tech Orchestra.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:45pm Brian in UK:

It's an odd boy who doesn't like FMU!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:45pm Cecile:

Carm, how'd you like my tiny burg?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:46pm Carmichael:

Pilot's drummer Stuart Tosh went on to play in 10cc.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:46pm glenn:

bad blood, and mickey's son and daughter.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:47pm Cecile:

That's right, after the good guys left. :/
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:47pm Cecile:

ZOMG. My dad used to sing that to me.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:47pm wikipedia:

Bay City Rollers ...Short term members ... included David Paton (member 1969-1970) and Billy Lyall (member 1969-1971), who went on to be founding members of another successful Edinburgh band, Pilot.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:48pm Brian in UK:

Anyone heard Viv Stanshall's Sir Henry at Rawlinson End?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:48pm frenchee:

woooo
When I'm callllllinnnng YOOOOO
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:48pm Cecile:

A long time ago, Brian.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:49pm BSI:

Brian: absolutely, it's a slice of twisted genius.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:49pm Carmichael:

Cecile, from what little I saw of it, I liked it. As a California kid, it was colder than hell. PJ laughed when I told him how cold Lake Tahoe was. Now I know why ...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:49pm Therese:

Lovely to hear you this afternoon, Mr. Pigeon!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:49pm Bad Ronald:

@ Brian - Irwin played it last year - http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/36622
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:50pm Cecile:

Yeah, and it was Winter Carnival IIRC. Coldest time of the year. LOL!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:50pm Scott Blake in Omaha, NE:

The Dusty Show on Monday! Yippee
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:50pm Brian in UK:

I've had it for 30 years and still enjoy it. 'I don't know what I want but I want it now!' Sir Henry
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:51pm Carmichael:

Ronald, do you still have that Roger Ruskin Spear? I never got around to dl'ing it.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:51pm Cecile:

This is the kind of schlock that kids who have parents who rocked missed out on. I have a soft spot for some of this stuff.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:52pm Brian in UK:

Saw him play once with his Giant Kinetic Wardrobe. Bonkers
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:52pm Cecile:

The easy listening fighting with the rock on the charts. Remember when Music Box Dancer was #1? in the late 70s? It was something straight out of 1958...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:53pm Carmichael:

My Dad's favorite record was Limbo Rock. And I can remember when Quentin's Theme (from Dark Shadows) was on the pop charts.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:53pm BSI:

@Cecile 12:51: exactly. And that is why I'll always have as many Bobby Vinton records as Gong records, etc...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:53pm listener 108365:

please tell me you have, and will play, "Frisco Line" from the Country Side of Arthur Prysock.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:53pm still b/p:

Sometimes I have to listen to just the good standards and MOR shmaltz for a while.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:54pm fielding mellish:

Neil Innes wrote Urban Spaceman - McCartney produced
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:54pm Bad Ronald:

@ Charmichael - I don't have the original DL link but I'd be happy to post the files for you if you'd like.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:54pm Cecile:

thanks fielding, I got that wrong.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:55pm Carmichael:

omg .... The Look of Love. This sounds like the Longines Symphonette.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:55pm Buford:

Arthur Prysock makes me cry
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:55pm Cecile:

Carm, every now and again my husband will whistle all of Quentin's theme like a theremin.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:55pm dale:

lover hurts sometimes. just ask spider sabitch. mr pigeon, do you have any wonderful sweet, sweet bread on the platter for this feast?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm Buford:

but why does Claudine Longet sound like 2 Japanese girls?
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm dc pat:

the only one who can sing Look of Love in my book is Dusty.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm Brian in UK:

@Bad Ronald. Thanks, yes it would be Irwin
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm Bad Ronald:

@ Charmichael - Found it!!!-

  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm Buford:

Dusty makes me cry too (Springfield).
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:56pm Cecile:

WAYNE!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:57pm Carmichael:

BR, that would be great. Just let me know.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:57pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Clay Pigeon! Love the show, even though this Claudine Longet track is creeeeeepy, esp considering her, uh... ski adventures... "don't ever go..."
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:57pm Cecile:

Wendy, I KNOW. shiver...
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:58pm dale:

only darrin at the copa compares to this medley!
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:58pm Bad Ronald:

@ Charmichael - Look Up^
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:59pm still b/p:

As soon as Quentin came up, I tried to see if I could whistle it from memory.

If Wayne covered Purple Haze, too bad Jimi didn't cover Danke Shoen or Scarlet Ribbon.

Claudine's version of Look is Love has such a great arrangement. One of my faves.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:59pm Carmichael:

BOONE! DId anyone see the Malcolm in the Middle where David Cassidy played a nightclub singer named Boone? He sang Let's Get This Party Started and Papa Don't Preach. Sorry Wayne, but Boone was the essence of schmaltz.
  Mon. 2/14/11 12:59pm glenn:

i proudly possess the vinyl album of the dark shadows soundtrack. when's the movie coming out?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:00pm Derek:

Oh man, Robert Preston all up in here
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:00pm Cecile:

To bring things around, I have a Dusty Springfield where she's doing Mockingbird with Jimi Hendrix. Only a little film survives. It's pretty cool. Even makes up for the bad French and Saunders clowining.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:01pm BSI:

OK, there's an appropriate VDay tune: Wifey was named after this tune from Music Man.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:01pm Irene:

All the old Dark Shadows are out on dvd. I was a huge fan as a kid.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:01pm glenn:

speaking of malcolm in the middle, is bryan cranston not fantastic in breaking bad? you can't tell it's the same guy.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:01pm Carmichael:

Glenn, I hope NEVER. Who would play Barnabas Collins?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:02pm glenn:

johnny depp. it's happening, i'm not kidding
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:03pm glenn:

tim burton producing and directing.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:03pm Carmichael:

Hay Zeus. Is nothing sacred?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:03pm glenn:

i think dean martin was elvis' favourite singer, no?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:04pm dc pat:

Dark Shadows use to scare the fuck out of me. I was really little.

Carm: yeah, man--they just can't think of anything new these days.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:05pm PMD:

Kenny Rogers was the first album I ever bought.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:05pm Cecile:

they already remade DS once. It was pretty decent, but the Gulf War got it cancelled.. It kept getting pre-empted for war coverage.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:05pm Carmichael:

I had to sit through General Hospital until my sisters would let me watch Dark Shadows.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:07pm Clay:

Thanks for all your comments. Always like the Kenny Rogers as Mary Arnold (the female singer) was from my hometown of Audubon, Iowa.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:08pm Carmichael:

Clay, was she a member of the 1st Edition?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:09pm dale:

remember kenny's easy strumming quick pickin mail order guitar lesson commercials?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:09pm Irene:

Tim Burton directing? I dunno, he might do a decent job. But why mess with the original.? Oh, right,Hollywood has run out of original ideas.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:09pm Handsome Harry:

Awhile back I checked out the entire back catalog of Kenny Rogers and the First Edition to see if they had anything else remotely on the same level with “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).” Much to my chagrin, they did not. I doubt I'm the only person to have ever reached this sad and sorry conclusion.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:10pm Chris:

Gerry Rafferty .... such a soothing voice
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:10pm Clay:

Yes, Carmichael. She replaced Thelma Camacho. Mary Arnold later married Roger Miller and now manages his estate. CW McCall is also from my hometown.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:10pm still b/p:

Commercially, they might as well borrow the DS characters and framework, but in terms of flavor or faithfulness, there's really no (satisfying) point in trying to make a movie based on a hokey, low-production-spark, made-for -TV horror serial.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:11pm Sybil:

Loving the show... I'd forgotten how nice some of these songs are.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:11pm Bad Ronald:

@ Charmichael - did you get the URL? (12:56 on the comments)
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:12pm Chris:

Whenever Clay does a music show all I have to do is close my eyes and I'm back in my childhood bedroom digging the hits on radio
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:12pm steve:

what a dreamy song... never knew it was gerry rafferty. thanks clay!
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:12pm glenn:

i gotta say... kenny rogers roasters was possibly the worst restaurant ever.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:13pm Carmichael:

Prior to the 1st Edition, Kenny was with Up With People, I think. Or maybe the New Chrsity Minstrels or the Swingle Singers. Anyhoo, it was a group where everybody wore sweaters and smiles. Like someone in A Mighty Wind said, "They look like a toothpaste commercial." I think the acid song was just a marketing thing.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:13pm Dan B From Upstate:

@glenn But a great Seinfeld episode.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:13pm dale:

these songs sound so much better now because back then i was listening through a Lloyds portable with the little ivory colored earbud.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:14pm Carmichael:

BR: yes, got it. Thanks!
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:14pm Cecile:

Ruby (Don't Take Your Love To Town) is a good 1st Edition song. Pretty creepy.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:14pm Bad Ronald:

np - enjoy!
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:15pm BSI:

Glenn: true! in my town they took over the old Ponderosa (or whatever it was called), classic 1970s cafeteria-style steak place. One crummy place replacing another..... circle of life.....
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:15pm glenn:

i missed it. if it had been a teenage mutant ninja turtles episode, i would have seen it for sure.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:16pm PMD:

It's amazing how many songs, such as step by Step, have basically the same short lyric repeated over and over.
Nothing can beat "Love Stinks" though. yeah yeah.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:16pm glenn:

has anybody heard the viv stanshall narrated peter and the wolf? many many great musicians on that one.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:17pm still b/p:

And I believe Kenny claimed Ruby wasn't an anti-war message. It was just about the hard story.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:17pm dc pat:

well these tunes sound a little better because back then I wanted to destroy the radio when it played this stuff. Punk rock made everything better.

Did you know, if Eddie Rabbitt and Bunny Tarquinio, got married her name would be Bunny Rabbitt? That's a joke we use to tell 40 years ago....
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:18pm That German Guy:

oh lawd! I love Vicente Fernandez!
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:19pm Brian in UK:

@glenn missed it, been trying to get it for ages. He used to be on the BBC covering John Peel's show and doing other various programs. Great to hear his fruity tones coming through the ether. Sadly no more.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:19pm Parq:

  Mon. 2/14/11 1:24pm Brian in UK:

@glenn not to my knowlege. He was on before all this archiving. The BBC erased a lot of great programs just to reuse the tapes. Can you believe that. There may be some stuff buried deep in Brainwashing House.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:25pm PMD:

Clay, I love your translation of my comment! I sound so eloquent when you speak my comment in other words.

  Mon. 2/14/11 1:27pm ted:

Hi Clay,
Great show
Do you know the rare song by Canadian Michel Pagliaro, 'Some Sing Some Dance'?
Great unheard of pop gem, cool for Valentines Day!
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:28pm dc pat:

aaaahhhh, Troggs. This song is so perfect.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:28pm Carmichael:

Reg, the other white Presley.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:29pm glenn:

oddly enough, michel pagliaro sounds a lot like reg presley.

okay, has anybody heard the new gregg allman c.d.? has nothing to do with cher being on, either,
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

glenn, how would anybody have ever heard a new Gregg Allman disc?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:34pm autodidactic:

The first time I heard this song was on Monty Python.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:35pm rock dove:

Clay, any chance you have "Sweet Potato" by Orange Colored Sky?
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:35pm Parq:

  Mon. 2/14/11 1:36pm zoot:

  Mon. 2/14/11 1:36pm autodidactic:

They were JUST crates, on a stage in spotlights.

i like the allman brothers. sorry.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:37pm dale:

i have a record called the kasenitz katz orchestral circus. you suddenly realize that the ohio express, 1910 fruitgum company, etc are all the same people.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:37pm Carmichael:

Joey Levine was the lead singer of Ohio Express, as well as with 1910 Fruitgum Company and other Super K (Kasenatz & Katz) productions. He wrote a slew of commercial jingles, and finally scored in a huge way with the Dragon Tales cartoon for kids.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

glenn, I grew up loving that stuff...but I mean, anything new from any of them...bleh...
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:37pm Dan B From Upstate:

That was the "How Not To Be Seen" episode, right? That image popped in my head as soon as the song started.
  Mon. 2/14/11 1:39pm Cecile:

dale, I have that record too.

Super K also launched the career of Ram Jam (Black Betty). They were looking for bubblegum metal...

Carpenters meet Catholics: Shortly after the song was popular, "We've Only Just Begun" was put as a line of meaningful reflection on a big felt banner by eighth grade students at my school and hung outside the auditorium where Masses took place.

I find it disappointing when DJ's play solid blocks of commercial hits on independent radio airwaves. Not to be against the mainstream in absolute terms, but it's a waste of the special opportunity that independent stations have earned. I'll tune back in to WFMU later.

  Mon. 2/14/11 2:13pm Irene:

Clay, thank you for not playing "Paradise By the Dashboard Lights!" When I was in college radio, one of our friends would coerce the DJs to play that song EVERY DAY. This lasted late into the semester until one of us did a mercy killing and wrecked the record. I still can't tolerate hearing that song.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:13pm TJ:

  Mon. 2/14/11 2:17pm Bad Ronald:

How about Elvis Costello's sardonic "You Belong to Me"?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:18pm annie:

right on hugh!!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:18pm Buford:

Just cracked one...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:18pm glenn:

some of us aspire to be old hippies from the sixties.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm Das:

This song is rocking my socks off.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm ted:

oh man, classic Trick!
haven't heard this in 25 years or more!
whew...where am i?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm Clay:

I know what you mean, Idaho.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm Sean Gostage:

Likewise, enjoying a Brooklyn IPA, marvellous suds
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm Hugh:

Oh Annie, you ol' hippie you!!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:19pm PMD:

@Irene, but there's another Meatloaf song he could play: What about love?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:20pm Cecile:

Damn, Robin Zander is just a great singer in any era.

I wouldn't mind a little Harry Nilsson.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:20pm Chris:

Do borderline hippies count? Had long hair during disco...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:21pm powiva:

Now I feel bad about myself. Idaho's right.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:21pm Bad Ronald:

Whattabout Keith and Ringo Doing "Together"?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:21pm BSI:

I've been digging all of this. But I think Meatloaf (any meatloaf, but particularly that dashboard tune) would be the only thing that would cause me to put the headphones down in protest. Complete with menacing scowl and the trembling threat of a tear...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm glenn:

ask and ye shall receive
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm Chris:

Nillsson schmillsson.... thank you Clay for the Romeo Void, time to piss off the neighbors again...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm Sean Gostage:

Clay, any chance of a bit of Todd Rundgren before the end of your show?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm Carmichael:

Here you are, Chris.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm darue:

see if you can fine Sugar Me, lyndsay depaul
thanks for the great show Clay, you got the touch ;)
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm Brian in UK:

Johnny & Mary by Robert Palmer. I'm dreaming
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm Irene:

Oh, yeah! Never Say Never!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:22pm PMD:

sigh. ok. I'll put on the album after the show ends.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:23pm frenchee:

OMG, she is so great De_Bore_uh is how she pronounced it.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:23pm darue:

@Brian in UK - excellent song! I always keep forgetting it's name
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:23pm Chris:

Used to work out to this song .... try not moving
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:24pm frenchee:

Clay, good catch on that "euphemism"
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:25pm Chris:

Once the euphemism was aok! We live in perilously litigous nanny daze
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:26pm Cecile:

Yes, Todd!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:27pm glenn:

i love these one chord songs.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:27pm frenchee:

is that you, Chris T? Heard Chris T discussing this topic w/X-Ray and Jonesy yesterday....
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:27pm dale:

remember a few summers ago a show called 'hit me baby one more time'? they brought back some of these bands to compete against each other. one of the guys from flock of seagulls was an IT person in a small accounting company. flame is fleeting.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:27pm βrian:

Romeo Void. Boy does that loose some hidden memories!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:28pm Cecile:

I believe he produced their second record, which kind of sucked. Although they had a low top 40 hit.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:30pm Cecile:

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I love the Darkness.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:30pm frenchee:

Dear Idaho,
It's the curating that makes the diff.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:30pm Detroit Mac:

Free-form is free-form! Clay play whatcha want... I like what you are doing.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:30pm annie:

bummer..
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:30pm Chris:

No, Listener Chris of Brooklyn frenchee... just great minds thinking alike... or I was stealing his material subconsciously
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:31pm TJ:

Its been a few years since i heard this one...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:32pm Cecile:

I still listen to their first one an embarrassing amount.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:32pm Handsome Harry:

Knocked it out of the park with this one, boy howdy.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:33pm Michael:

For what it's worth, and with regards to the Idaho hater, I am also in Idaho, and I listen to FMU constantly, wouldn't even know what I'd do without it and without Clay PIgeon. I probably wouldn't live in Idaho. (KEXP is also solid free-form and worth checking out for all you coasters.)
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:33pm PMD:

A quote from the other room: "yeah, I know the Darkness. They suck"
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:33pm still b/p:

Reminded me of Sparks a li'l bit.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:34pm annie:

sorry, but the headphones are coming off. waay too loud for me. esp. after the great two-hour pre-amble.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:34pm Buford:

Booyah! Clay rules.

And that dude from the Darkness has a great rock voice. High notes!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:34pm glenn:

sparks is too cool for school.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:34pm Cecile:

sbp, the lead singer when he left the Darkeness did a cover of "This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both of Us" as British Whale.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm PMD:

annie - you wuss! just turn the volume down
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm Buford:

Bring on the rock, brother
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm βrian:

Never heard of The Darkness, but I would've guessed they were circa 1978. Surprising.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm Cecile:

Justin Hawkins, that's his name.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm v k:

re: Mr./Mrs. Idaho: always gonna ppl that love to be critical; nothing novel there; i just enjoy the tunes, especially with Clay at the wheel
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:35pm Cecile:

Dan Hawkins was his brother and the great guitar player.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:36pm annie:

not a wuss, just don't like the screaming.. and,btw, is it my turn in any active games?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:36pm frenchee:

My coworker just asked me nicely to stop jumping around. I_can't_stop_the_dance
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:36pm Cecile:

Okay, not down with Whitesnake.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:37pm Buford:

DAVID COVERDALE. YESSSS
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:37pm Carmichael:

Have to go to lunch, Clay. Let it be said that you ROCK!

Have you heard of a band called Nutz? They had 1 hit called As Far As the Eye Can See.

C ya!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:38pm Cecile:

clay can play what he wants, and idaho can complain. It's free country. 'FMU's many things to many people. I mean, I said similar things when Andy Breckman did that one...April...Fools... show...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:38pm glenn:

david coverdale is the new black. or something.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:38pm ScottC:

weird connection - the drummer for Romeo Void was the same drummer on The Temptations "Papa Was A Rolling Stone". I worked with his wife at the time
and always found that amazing.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:38pm Handsome Harry:

That makes two of us who are not down with the Whitesnake.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:39pm still b/p:

Innerestin'..thanks Cecile.
Does anybody anywhere play things like Sparks today? Plenty of 70s classic rock out there...but a little deeper variety from the stacks of the day would be nice.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:39pm Cecile:

FMU is a Sparks hotbed. When they did a show in NYC, Fabio did a whole show of Sparks.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:40pm Dan:

IN IDAHO truly misunderstands the concept of freeform radio. Isolating a group of music not to play is as antithetical to freeform as making a DJ stick to a playlist.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:40pm Buford:

Love the cellos in this part...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:40pm BSI:

oooh..... evidently I missed a doozy of an April Fools 7SD...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:40pm Cecile:

I think In Idaho understands, just hates the songs. That's cool.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:41pm Cecile:

BSI ,it was Andy filling in for Irwin one year.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:42pm BSI:

heh! No good could come of that!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:42pm βrian:

Sometimes radio hurts. It's good to know, though, that it's not due to indifference.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:42pm dale:

every one of us is backseat deejay. let mr. pigeon do his job. ohhh, how about something from the jackie gleason 'for young lovers' vaults? kidding.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:43pm glenn:

chuck tanner died today, if there's still any pittsburgh pirates fans out there.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:43pm Buford:

Clay's voice may be soft, but he has a steely underbelly of METAL!!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

double-cheez metal pizza
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:43pm Dan B From Upstate:

Yes, that was a weird April Fools Day. Grandma Phyllis from 9-noon, Aunty Pat & Aunty Ellen from noon-3, and Go To Hell With Andy Breckman from 3-6. I can't remember who filled in for 7sD that day... maybe Night People?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:43pm PMD:

@ annie, I know. just kidding.
Um, I'll have to check. I've actually be working, and commenting of course.
Yeah, this is a bit heavy...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:44pm autodidactic:

"It's the people that never turn us off that I worry about." - Ken Freedman
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:44pm Buford:

C'mon ladies, embrace the majesty that is rock
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:45pm anne:

Clay, I loved the Kix you played last week, brought back memories. So does this, ha ha!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I just got a haircut and I look like a pinhead
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:46pm powiva:

I had the Shout at the Devil gatefold pushpinned to my wall in 4th grade
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:46pm βrian:

There's something endearing about hearing Sonny Bono, rather than that other Bono – whom I always confuse with a bonobo, anyway.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:46pm Cecile:

I am a lady, and I enjoy hard rock. Just not the Crue or Whitesnake.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:46pm dale:

betty garrett passed yesterday. she was a pistol in on the town
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:46pm Cecile:

Oh, noes. I have to leave now. Oy. The song that killed Kiss for half a decade.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:47pm Cecile:

I do like Queen of Siam's version of this song, though.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:47pm Clay:

cAN'T sTOP tHE rOCK
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's funny, I don't recall the verses at all of this tune, but that chorus!!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:47pm βrian:

Cecile, have a pickled egg and a shell of beer, and think of Houghton.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:48pm gail:

I just looove you
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:48pm Buford:

Then Happy Valentine's Day, women of ROCK!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:48pm dale:

always wonder what he meant by 'i'm gonna lay at your feet"?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:48pm Buford:

Smokin' song by Kiss
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:49pm PMD:

A big kiss to Clay.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:49pm Chris:

Come on Cecile, you Knew the Kiss were a comin'
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:49pm glenn:

i didn't even know this was kiss, which is how little attention i ever paid to them.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:50pm Cecile:

I did. I actually own a 25 cent copy of Alive, their only album good all the way thru album. And play it quite a bit.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:51pm BSI:

Flies were made for droppin,' baby.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:51pm Cecile:

The Darkness did way too much coke and Roy Thomas Baker couldn't rein them in. If they would have kept it together...
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:51pm ecnarf morf:

Bise !
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:52pm βrian:

Je vois le verlan, là !
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:52pm Dan B From Upstate:

Fun show, Clay. That third hour was a bit... uh... But the whole thing was still fun!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:53pm ecnarf morf:

:)) bien vu Brian !
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:53pm Cecile:

Clay: re the Darkness. Nobody plays guitar that hard in a joke band.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:54pm frenchee:

ending on a classy note, Clay!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:54pm v k:

my wedding song! Let's Stay Together! we tried to book the Rev. Al. Green for our Newport, RI wedding; we were in negotiations with his agent, but his demands, and entourage, were too much for us - but good bless the Rev. Al Green
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:55pm frenchee:

wow, to be married by the rev. al green, that would be amazing. Or Rev. Little Richard like a lot of the rock stars were doing in the 80s.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:55pm Chris:

Love the show, love the love, love the Clay
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:56pm Cecile:

I watched the "Unsung" on TVOne with Teddy Pendergrass. I was bawling at the end.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:56pm Buford:

Thanks for making my day, Clay.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:57pm dale:

this stuff reminds me of seeing luther vandross in a midtown bar back in the early 80s before he got huge. great talent.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:57pm glenn:

i'd be married by jerry lee lewis, if i had the choice. or exene.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:57pm Chris:

OOPS! Love Irene Trudel too!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:58pm BSI:

mp3 stream dead or just me?
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:58pm BSI:

  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm marc:

Thanks for the great show, clay. You brought back so great musical memories.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm Cecile:

  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm TJ:

Stream chopped up a little but is back
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm Buford:

Burnin' hot oils baby!
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm frenchee:

lol, Glenn, I was thinking that very same thing. I'd even risk a second marriage. WHAT AM I SAYING.
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it all went dead there for a minute
  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm ?:

  Mon. 2/14/11 2:59pm Mary Wing:

I lost the stream for a moment too, very hard to lose Teddy in the middle of lovin'.

Maybe Joe Lieberman messing with the intertubes.
