There was U2 and Blondie

Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 1985

Not sure if this is being played "ironically", certainly not a band on the Woof-Mu regular (!) list, but the Cvlt are so great and so underappreciated, in my humble.

I never waste my time "listening ironically" and assume Irwin would not either. I think The Cult are pretty awesome! Just like Styx, King Crimson and 75 Dollar Bill.

I want to think that too, Sir Wild. I recall Ken going on a rant once about basically "not liking/or listening" to the music he plays... guess it never occurred to me, but could be the case more than we, the listeners know. <Disillusioned>

@Itzall-is it possible he was...just kidding? Or was it an elaborate faux outrage that conceals a greater truth?? I don't really like Porest or Negativeland very much, so maybe Ken does not either? Wow, project much Wild Neil? I hope my point is clear here....Ken must be a genius at running the station, he has gotten this far....
I force myself to listen to Porest because maybe I will grow to like it? Like some of Bryce's show?
Avatar    Wed. 3/21/18 3:23pm ||||||WILD||||||||||||||NEIL||||||||||:

Wow, ironic for music on MTV? I'm not. I remember going to a motel party with a bunch of "cool kids" and all they did was drink beer and watch MTV which played "Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes (which SUCKS, objectively) 4 times an hour, no exaggeration. MTV really does suck. Once the novelty wore off, I was DONE with it.

Methinks if you don't like something, you don't like it. Forcing yourself to listen to something until you 'like' it, isn't that just coerced acceptance?

@AAP: Maybe it is a bit obtuse, but I consider it a form of radical acceptance. I wish I had liked Sinatra in my teens, for example. NOW, I love the guy, but then , no way. I used to hate on ABBA, too. Peer pressure I think. So I guess at age 50 I am still decontaminating a lifetime of peer pressure from High School? Or whatever?

I like to think I can tell the difference between what I don't like vs. what I don't get, but then I'm not that smart. Tastes do change over time, but what I didn't like back then, I didn't like back then and that was OK. Today I might like it and that's OK too. And it's not because I forced myself too, but because I've changed and now there's stuff I don't like now that I once used to.

im not into u2, but i recently did an experiment where i listened to all the top 100 songs from each year in order, and when u2 showed up in 1987 i could tell why they blew people away back then, just because they stood out so much from their context.

@Alison, I believe someone (maybe Ken?) already confirmed on air that the game villain is Weinstein. Also, I barely understand any of that cat biology page (biology and chemistry are my Achilles heels) but I'm pained to learn that torties (and torbies?) can't have any white.

jack, i didn't write about it anywhere (probably should have) but it wasn't too scientific or anything. i just wanted to learn more about the music that came before me (i stopped with the year of my birth). the most surprising result is that it caused me to fall in love with the music of the early 60s (in particular, gene pitney was added to my pantheon of favorite artists when i had previously only known one of his songs, and disliked it).

@Itzall Ablurr: If you don't mind me asking, which "Turtle's" stores did you frequent? I would visit most of them on the west side of ATL in the late 70s and early 80s before they went belly up. Unfortunately that was when most records were made from crappy vinyl and sounded crappy (and most of them were pressed at the CBS/Sony plant in Carrollton, GA where a good friend of mine worked).

Bronwyn, that's great. Reading liner notes has always drawn me to the artists who influenced the musicians I love, and then you learn about their contemporaries, and it's just a wonderful wormhole. (At some point I was inspired to pick up a Pitney best-of.)

Irwin: I couldn't articulate well during the fundraiser. I just wanted to say that your ideology is humane, if sometimes obscure, and your hustle is justified and karmically right. You have published and will never perish as a scholar and historian. Your book is in the Somerville Library and I do check every now and then to make sure all's well.
