Do you think Richie Barrett had been listening to some Ray Charles?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 10:06pm Funky16Corners:

How you making out so far, Scraps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 10:17pm Parq:

I can never hear the Beau Brummels without thinking of their "appearance" on The Flintstones, as grinning pixies with endearingly strange clockwork stage movements.

Robert from Fullerton, killer pledge, thank you so much!!!! We sure appreciate all the support.
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:00pm Dean:

Fullerton, represent! I used to live nearby. It's kind of a secretly cool town.

Pro tip, don't go see Brenda Holloway live in 2018 :( stay home & listen to the classics.

Not a well known one

Dean, are you psychic? Or... maybe my stream's delayed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:05pm Parq:

Must go. Larry. Really excited for your 'thon debut. Kill 'em. If you come by for the finale on the 18th, come up to the phone room and say howdy.

This hours prizes!!!: 1. The Woggles "Tally Ho" CD; 2. Jean Jacques Perrey: And His Ondioline LP; 3. The Pleasure Seekers: What A Way To Die LP. Amazingly good selection of prizes & a $20 pledge gets you in to win!! pledge.wfmu.org...
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:06pm rw:

Dean, Yeah, I like it here. I work most days on location in Los Angeles proper so it's kind of nice to escape to the suburbs on the weekends and days I'm not on location.
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:07pm Dean:

@rw, If I were psychic, I'd have won a lottery or two, and WFMU would, a fortiori, not be concerned with the viability of its revenue stream.

But I do know parts of Fullerton, and I've enjoyed being there.
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:08pm Dean:

My mom's in La Habra. Now and then we head to Olde Ship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

Alls I know is that there's a Cal State in Fullerton
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

Fender guitars were made in Fullerton but moved to Corona.
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:11pm rw:

Ha! I've never been to the Olde Ship but my friend Dave is a fan. And the other day I got pulled over by the CSUF cops for riding my bike too wildly through campus!
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:11pm Dean:

Yeah, but you know there was a Wenzel's Music Town not too far away in Downey.
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:12pm Kris Holmes:

Downey has the single arch McDonalds too!!
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:13pm rw:

And Kris, I rode that same bicycle to Corona last weekend! AND my mom lived in Downey when she moved out here from Chicagoland!
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:13pm Dean:

Olde Ship has maintained a modicum of integrity in terms of British authenticity. There is (or was) also a British grocer a few blocks south.

The Downey McDonalds is something to behold.
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

Billy Boy Arnold however is still outstanding sounding in 2018
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:14pm Funky16Corners:

Have you heard the album he did in the 70s? It has some wild stuff on it
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:14pm rw:

AND I used to live in La Habra on Lambert near Beach. Just down the street from James Hardware!
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:14pm Kris Holmes:

My former agent for gigs in LA lived in Downey, spent a little bit of time kicking it there
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

Myself and another friend who is also a guitarist did a special VIP Fender guitar factory tour which was great.
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:16pm Dean:

OMG. My mom lives walking distance from James Hardware. I love visiting James! A real hardware store, knowledgeable crew, good selection. These are endangered species I'm afraid...
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

I haven't heard the 70s album that I can recall
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:17pm rw:

She probably lives in the same townhouse complex I used to live in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

Released in 1979 in the UK, features the track Dirty Mother F*cker

love this Timmy Shaw, hard as nails
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:20pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah. I was shocked when I found this and played it. I had no idea the Animals track was a cover
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:20pm Kris Holmes:

oh wow, that's wild
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:23pm rw:

Dean, no but I think we were almost directly across the street on the north side of Lambert.
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

yeah Timmy Shaw was Detroit
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

Some outstanding prizes still up for grabs everyone, please PLEDGE!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:24pm doctorjazz:

This I Can't Let Go is great (as is the cover). You played it not long ago, no? (not that that's a bad thing-FMU DJ's have this thing about never wanting to play anything that has ever been played before, which eliminates lots of good music once someone has gotten to it).
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:26pm rw:

Larry, I got here late and then got caught up in this conversation about north Orange County and I'm missing this incredible sounding show! I'm going to have to catch it in archive. And of course pledge again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

I think I played Evie during the all-female show. I will never hesitate to replay a great record if the opportunity arises.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks RW!
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

Evie Sands also is still pretty good live these days
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

I've heard she still has it
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:28pm rw:

Dean, next time you're out here let me know and I'll buy you a beer at the Olde Ship!
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:28pm Dean:

Ah, yes, I know the block. My mom's closer to the Beach/Imperial intersection. I'm there quite a few times every year. (Hence my visits to James to buy this or that for repairs.)
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:29pm Dean:

@rw: I'll buy *you* a round or two!
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

Rhank you to Tim from Oak Ridge TN & Robert from Fullerton (again) for your amazing pledges, you are in the draw for this hours prizes!!!

It was. I was up on the desk
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:39pm Dean:

Wrapped up taxes yesterday. Maybe we can use a WFMU DJ as a sort of escrow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

You send all your money to the station and mum's the word. I promise I will not disappear with the cash to the Cayman Islands
  Wed. 3/7/18 11:43pm rw:

Actually, I'd love it if you could send my vast holdings to the Caymans.
