Hey Cheyenne! Welcome to the 45 show!

Hey Matt!

Fave line! I don't wanna be understood!!! ha ha!

Hey Joe and Glynis!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:13pm Joe B:

One example for me of the remake being better than the original
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:18pm Joe B:

Great Vandellas cut! The Corporation! wish she got more of their tunes but I guess they were busy with the J5
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:19pm MattBelow:

@Joe B: It was a great combo. It's too bad the Vandellas got neglected so much. Martha had a killer voice and vibe.
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:20pm Joe B:

i actually saw Springsteen cover street fighting man once, pretty good!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:20pm Joe B:

Yeah agree, everyone got swept aside so Gordy could invest it all in Diana Ross
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:22pm MattBelow:

@Joe B: Luckily they didn't totally sweep the Supremes aside when Diana left. The Jean Terrell years kick arse
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:22pm Gaylord Fields:

Imagine seeing so many favorite friends (Joe, Glynis, Tania, Cheyenne — and of course, Matt) here!
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:23pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

agreed, Gaylord! sure makes the workday better as does Matt's record selection.
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:24pm Joe B:

hey I did just get up! how did you know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:24pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm also a big fan of Jean Terrell-led Supes (Up the Ladder to the Roof, Stoned Love, Nathan Jones, Floy Joy) — that era needs more love!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:25pm MattBelow:

Those Four Tops-Supremes combo records have some chestnuts hidden away on 'em too
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:25pm Joe B:

agreed Gaylord! funny a couple of those songs charted pretty high and I recall hearing them on WABC but they seem to have been written out of history on oldies radio
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:27pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

the tyranny of oldies radio canon formation
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:28pm MattBelow:

Oldies are now Bon Jovi
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:28pm V Priceless:

ok - I'm crashing this here DJ chin wag! Hey Matt and gang - fab tunes!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:28pm Joe B:

Despite street fighting man being included on about 3,000 Stones comps, the only CD that has the version you played is the 2002 version of the London Years 3CD collection
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:29pm Joe B:

Gaylord, I think Matt is making his pitch for one of those blazers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:30pm Gaylord Fields:

He'll be wearing the yellow polyester in no time!

Hey V!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:34pm Gaylord Fields:

Matt's got the chatter and the platters!
  Tue. 10/20/15 3:35pm david marando:

great show
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:36pm Joe B:

great one. No. 2 on my all time Lovin Spoonful chart
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:36pm Joe B:

Little girls? was Gary Puckett an influence on John B.?
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:37pm Cheyenne:

Yes! @Gaylord, I was just tellin Liz one of the punk DJs needs to bill their Singles Going Steady show as "Cue 'Til Ya Spew" but that's a little graphic for such a mild-mannered show as this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:37pm MattBelow:

@Joe B: It's going to be on Hot Chart action on WFMU. Mr Sebastian said it's one of his underrate tunes...let's make it a number one hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:37pm MattBelow:

@david marando: Hey Pops!
  Tue. 10/20/15 3:38pm david marando:

I am joining the party
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Cheyenne: You need to be WFMU's marketing director.

@david marando: You've got a good boy there, but you probably already know that.
  Tue. 10/20/15 3:41pm david marando:

Thank you Gaylord!!!
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:42pm Cheyenne:

Haha @Gaylord, that'd be a disaster. But thanks for believing in me!
  Tue. 10/20/15 3:43pm david marando:

lo.ve this song, have not heard it in years
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:43pm V Priceless:

Quo!

Kramer was at a Chiller Theatre Expo a few years back - he was gonna do a few tunes, but The 5,6,7,8's were on first - he threw a hissy fit about having to wait, bad-mouthed the girls, and stormed off, never to be seen again. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:44pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Hey Matt's Dad, David. Matt is the BEST! He's a great volunteer, a great dj, a super musician and a really great friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:44pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

V, that is PRICELESS!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:44pm Joe B:

second on Glynis' accurate comment!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:45pm Joe B:

V I saw him perform twice at the Beatle dork convention, and he did you a favor!
  Tue. 10/20/15 3:46pm david marando:

Thank you Glynis ! Thanks Joe hes a hard worker thats for sure
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:47pm Joe B:

wow b-side of one of the first records i ever owned!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:48pm MattBelow:

@david marando: Meet some of the coolest cats in the world, right here on this here playlist!
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:48pm V Priceless:

@ Joe B - I kinda suspected that would have been the case, had it played out as per the original plan!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:48pm Joe B:

It's Wonderful - the Rascals' She's Still a Mystery!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:50pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Speaking of the 5,6,7,8's! They do such a great version of this song! But I guess it's just such a great song it's hard to screw it up!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:50pm MattBelow:

@Joe B: It's Wonderful is a top song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:51pm Gaylord Fields:

@Glynis: As do Bambi Kino (with a special guest vocal appearance by Paul Lynde)!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:52pm Joe B:

V, BillyJ did have a lot of great stories about JOhn and Paul, so it was cool to see him but ... he really didn't have it. And I always grade veteran acts on a curve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:56pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

My fingers go in my ears and I sing "la la la la" at the mention of Paul Lynde.
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 3:57pm V Priceless:

agreed, Joe! I dig your idea of grading the vets on a curve - do you tend to round up or down, or perhaps there are too many variables to make a generalization about the process?

Thanx Matt! Swell stuff!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:58pm Joe B:

great show Matt, and thanks again for the great job Sunday. Paul Collins is still raving about how great everything was!
Avatar Tue. 10/20/15 3:58pm Joe B:

V, keep expectations very low and go from there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joe B: And Billy J. looks just like Stephen Fry these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/20/15 3:59pm MattBelow:

Thanks everyone for hanging out! Singles Going Steady week has now been completed!
@Joe B: Anytime Joe!
Avatar    Tue. 10/20/15 4:00pm V Priceless:

haha Joe! Cheers!
