Experiment about to begin:

Is listening to reggae conducive to shoveling snow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 9:39am Meghan:

just think warm thoughts and that should help melt the snow.... right?
  Sun. 1/20/19 9:40am Jefff:

Can't hurt. But probably best to have the coffee waiting...

Hey there Kim and Melinda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:08am Stanley:

Haha! That Loch Ness thing very weird.
My first enounter with reggae was at the fun fair at Crystal Palace, South London, around 1967, I think. I couldn't believe my eyes. The music being played at the fair made an indelible impression. Specifically, I remember the track, The Liquidator by Harry J All Stars. You can imagine the effect of this nightime scene on the senses of an impressionable 8 year old. Jamaicans, skinheads, teenagers, lights, sound and a sugar rush you could light a cigarette with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:11am Meghan:

oh wow! That is a crazy experience! nice!
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:14am Jefff:

You'd be yelling too if you had barb wire in your underpants... must be Meghan's favorite song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:16am Stanley:

our neighbours took me and my brother and as the fair was held in a field our mum made us wear welington boots. I remember that they flew off when I was on the flying swing ride thing and I returned home all mudied in in my stocking feet. My brother won a goldfish but I had the music.
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:16am seth from muddy creek:

I got barbed wire in my underpants
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:17am leshwatt:

Haha barbed wire
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:17am Meghan:

That sounds dangerous Seth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:18am Meghan:

you lost your good Wellies! for shame Stanley!!
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:18am leshwatt:

I recommend blasting underwater reggae room whilst shoveling snow. It may compliment shoveling other stuff as well! Thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:21am Santos L. Halper:

@BiUK, that show looks great, have a teenage bassist in the house who should see it. But it won't allow me to DL or watch outside UK...
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:26am seth from muddy creek:

@leshwatt AMEN!
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:30am Mike Wolf:

No disrespeck to the regular host but I am really enjoying your selections today Meghan — Steel Pulse is a strange band to bring tears to your eyes but they were my (late) brother’s favorite... Thank you thank you!
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:31am seth from muddy creek:

Anyone else having Supertouch shows backflash?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:32am Stanley:

Steel Pulse - Birmingham's finest. I booked them when I was social secretary at college, nearby, in Wolverhampton.Now I mention it, have you heard of Capital Letters, Meghan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:34am Meghan:

I haven't.... I will have to check it out. Any recommendations song wise?
  Sun. 1/20/19 10:37am Jefff:

To your brother, Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 10:43am Stanley:

'Headline News' was the album at the time and the almost anthem like 'Smoking My Ganja' was THE go to track for us reprobates.

Thank you Jefff. In fact my brother's name was Jeff! He got me into reggae (and college radio for that matter).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/20/19 11:02am Brian in UK:

@Santos, thought that might be the case. There are ways round it but it eludes me.
Think Jeff Golick on the Stream right now knows a way.
