i neverr lived close enough to hear wnyu on terrestrial radio so i discovered it around the same time as i did wfmu, I was very late to the game, think Realplayer. I used to listen to NYC (and other cities) AM stations at night on the radio because they would carry for hundreds ad hundreds of miles but only at night

efd, you’ve certainly covered all the new wave postpunk bases tonight, much to my nostalgic delight!

high praise, thank you Gaylord!

Oh oh oh oh oh what a great dB’s song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:28pm Gaylord Fields:

The Records’ second album, Crashes, is power pop glory and woefully neglected. John Wicks made us happy, so I mourn his death and celebrate his music.

When I hear Black & White, I think of @efd, every time. It's what I think of as your unofficial theme song.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:31pm Gaylord Fields:

@efd: It’s unsurprising that this fabulous show would bring to mind the new wave classic I just shared with you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:32pm Roberto:

I was listening to Repercussion recently during a late-night drive. I'm still impressed by how many amazing songs those guys recorded in a relatively short time.

I'm assuming it is the PIL Ritz Riot story
Avatar Wed. 10/10/18 11:40pm Andrew S:

yeah the airchecks really are a fun glimpse. Honestly though, other than a little change in inflection there isnt a whole lot of change

Hypnobeat! All-time fave! I've covered this with my band!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:41pm Julie M:

Hypno-land is where I'm headed. What a great show. Thanks, Evan!
  Wed. 10/10/18 11:43pm Jim Allen:

Oh yeah, Cyclones! I actually just met their bassist Marc Seligman a few weeks ago. I think I unnerved him with my knowledge of his early '80s activities. :)

I might still have my original beat-to-shit 45 of "Rescue"

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:56pm efd:

I feel like playing the Cosmopolitans would be a conflict of interest, not that I see a single penny from anything I'd play (and, for that matter, not that there are even pennies to be seen!)

I’m no longer hangry for great music, thanks to efd!
