True story -- after hearing clips from and descriptions of The Young Ones on this show last week I decided I must see this programme. My daughter agreed and we're both now completely addicted to the TYO way of life. Sad that Rik had to go in order for us to know the brilliance of TYO.

Roberto: It's never too late to catch up with a classic!

I also realized after watching a few episodes that I'm Neil and my kids are Vyvyan and Rick.

In honor of today's show, I'm gonna rename myself Gaylord Fields!
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:14pm listener james from westwood:

CWA reminds me of a woman I used to know, esp w/r/t the "why are you wearing a skirt?" lesbian dynamic.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:14pm Amanda:

Roberto, that is AMAZING! Really glad I could facilitate your love of TYO. My dad (Papa Naz) and I used to love watching it together too.

Gaylord -- OK, but just don't do that in front of my kids.

The meaning of this song has really changed, or has it?

Aw man, I missed The Sweater? Stupid impromptu work chats.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:30pm listener james from westwood:

Hearing "It's Raining Men" makes me think (a) of "Men on Film" from "In Living Color" and (b) Smithers getting hit in the face with the 45 of this song and going, "Ooh!"

I'm a Boy begs to be song by a transgender male.

The Sweater! Haven't heard that in ages. Always reminds me of "I Know What Boys Like" by The Waitresses.

"time for me to put out" - that's what she said
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 12:36pm Gaylord Fields:

Alternately, several songs from Pete Townshend's "Empty Glass" LP, especially "Rough Boys," would fit today's theme. "Let My Love Open the (Closet) Door," indeed!
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:37pm listener james from westwood:

With that four-on-the-floor intro beat, it could only have been The Village People.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:41pm listener james from westwood:

Aw yiss Pet Shop Boys classic!! Used to CRANK this on my Walkman at college. Has one of my very favorite lines in any song.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:42pm Amanda:

@james, that's why I waited a minute to input the song into the accu-playlist... heh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 12:42pm Gaylord Fields:

Because of the Village People, I now have the possibly mistaken impression that Stonewall was a food fight: youtu.be...

Love Theme from "Cruising" would be nice.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:43pm listener james from westwood:

I would also have accepted, as a follow up to TVP, the PSBs' Soviet-kitschy cover of "Go West."

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 12:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@Amanda: I'm actually not at all trying to program your show and wouldn't dream of doing that; I was just pointing out a recurring theme with Pete Townshend. Heck, I don't put that much effort into my own show!
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:55pm ndbob:

what a great song here
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:56pm listener james from westwood:

I have yet to sample Magnolia, but really, this area's now replete with cupcakeries.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 12:58pm Amanda:

Aw, you know I'm just funning with you Gaylord.

Actually, a couple of these selections were suggestions from my lovely streammates. And Jesse K suggested "Food Fight"!

OMG to have seen this live.

Like Ricky Ricardo, I'm just a bit sensitive about 'splaining.

Damn, all this dynamite and not a single jukebox in the room
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 1:09pm Skirkie:

I still can't believe there's a market for Cialis. I didn't know so many people suffered from fear of bathtubs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 1:09pm Uncle Michael:

Gaylord, tell Ethel to pull *harder*.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 1:10pm listener james from westwood:

I can't hear that damn Cialis blues riff in any song without thinking of calling the doctor if something lasts longer than 4 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 1:12pm Uncle Michael:

If your blues riff lasts longer than four hours...
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 1:13pm Jeff Golick:

...and you are *not* a member of Endless Boogie...

Does this song pass the Bechdel test? Signs point to yes.

Okay. Never mind.

@Skirkie yah, they're really hinting over the head with hammer with Smithers.

But Babs...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/18/14 1:37pm Gaylord Fields:

@rogue oats: According to that very authorized LR bio, the man was trisexual (as in the old "try anything sexual" trope). But yes, according to Little Richard, Buddy Holly was quite the Big Bopper.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 1:38pm listener james from westwood:

Somewhere in the Simpsons, they show Smithers wearing one of Judy Garland's outfits. At least sartorially, he is a friend of Dorothy.

"Forever Young" by Alphaville was that sort of song for me for a long time. Then not. Odd.

Wendy Carlos will be none too pleased that you used that other name. And she's got the lawyers to prove it.

She actually had all her pre-SRS albums reissued with her preferred name, so I would likely change it.

Correction: Just realized that the waterfall-house gag I mention here is actually from ep 194, "Dumbbell Indemnity." There are many flooded-house jokes throughout the series but still, Nazario Scenario regrets the error.
