Hey, Don-O!
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:03pm Digger Barnes:

i went to see Tron at the cinema. It went way over my head
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:04pm Digger Barnes:

80s are without a doubt the best decade in music
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:04pm Don-O:

Ahhh! There. Let the bellyaching begin! Oh, and HIS Rich!!
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:05pm Digger Barnes:

blaming Ronald Reagan for 80s pop is getting old
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:06pm Digger Barnes:

70s pop was way worse than 80s pop
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:06pm Rich in Washington:

Ah, Neighborhood Rhythms... I painstakingly ripped all those Freeway Records spoken word LPs and put them up at UBUWeb. God. Thousands of tracks, most under a minute.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:07pm βrian:

I think I remember they day when the fade-out died.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:08pm Don-O:

I tried to do a track by track MP3 of my copy of The Voices Of The Angles and I burned out within the first half of the record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:08pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah. They're insane. Also hard to cue up on record.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:09pm Don-O:

I think it was Mr. Fab's late blog that had the tracks separated....and thank god for that!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:10pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow! How did I miss that? Would've saved me a huge headache - not that I didn't ultimately enjoy it.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:10pm Martinibomb:

Hi Don-o! Hilarious stuff today - thanx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:10pm Rich in Washington:

I also put some rare Negativland radio pieces up there. They came to the station on open reel tapes.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:10pm Mr Fab:

No, 'twas Rich who did that awesome deed. Much appreciated, Rich
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:11pm Don-O:

Small warning: I think I played one too many Rollins tracks in show.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:11pm Don-O:

Thanks, Martini B!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:13pm Mr Fab:

When people say "the '80s", I think, punk/alt-rock, and Golden Age hip-hop, which I loved. But guess most think: "Rick Astley." And that kinda stuff. Which I didn't.
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:14pm Digger Barnes:

Rick Astley's songs were great pop
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:15pm βrian:

I remember when Black Flag was just a nasty smelling spray that Mom would feverishly spray about the cabin.
  Fri. 1/25/19 6:15pm Digger Barnes:

Anyway, hardly anyone would think Astley, theyd think Madonna, Prince, Jacko
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:15pm Rich in Washington:

yeah. there was a whole other 80s that most people didn't know about. Towards the end of the 80s, there was this effort by labels to push these fringe acts into the mainstream, finally culminating into the grunge bubble in the early 90s.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:17pm Don-O:

Bubbles were meant to be burst. Look what happens to Wall Street every 8 to 10 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:18pm Rich in Washington:

Anyone listen to Rollins' KCRW show? Is it worth listening to?
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:19pm βrian:

@Rich: "Grunge Bubble." Thank you for that.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:19pm grantbob:

Mojo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:19pm Rich in Washington:

MOJO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:19pm Rich in Washington:

@βrian: HA! Sounds like a band, donnit?
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:20pm Mr Fab:

Oh yeah, I frequently listen to Rollin's show. Good stuff. it's NOT all old hardcore. In fact, he rarely plays that kinda thing. The Fall, Wire, new experimental oddball stuff, Suicide, Blue Note jazz...a pretty WFMU kinda show.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:20pm Don-O:

There's a doc on him coming out later this year. I'm pretty sure I'll miss it as I don't live in L. A. anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:21pm Rich in Washington:

The documentary Hype is the best examination of the aforementioned grunge bubble.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:21pm Mr Fab:

Plenty of Mojo in the Sheena stream!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:22pm Martinibomb:

THIS song rules
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:22pm Mr Fab:

the normals: Do you like '80s music?
me: Oh yeah, i saw the Butthole Surfers, like, 5 times!
the normals: ???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:23pm Rich in Washington:

Totally! Literally my experience!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

Godley and Creme were geniuses. Loved their albums...
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:25pm Mr Fab:

shopping malls are pretty much an endangered species nowadays. Mission accomplished, Mojo.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:26pm Don-O:

I have yet to listen to their Consequences set!! I now know where Negativland got the number 17 from.....I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:28pm Rich in Washington:

Consequences is kind of hard to listen to in one go. I have this promo version that just has most of the music, minus the Peter Cook bits. I especially love their LPs L, Freeze Frame and Snack Attack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:28pm Rich in Washington:

God. I haven't heard this in eons!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:29pm Martinibomb:

The only thing I'll miss from Malls are the Arcades but those have moved over to retro arcade specialty venues and they have booze!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:30pm Don-O:

Sadly, this track is the only interesting track in the soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:30pm Rich in Washington:

This movie is definitely a time capsule. It's really weirdly dated now.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:30pm βrian:

I only miss the silent arcades.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:30pm Don-O:

.....and as much as I love MTM, I still dig this track!!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:31pm Mr Fab:

Oh my. I saw "Mondo New York" when it came out. It was ...interesting.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:35pm Don-O:

I blame the 80's on what they did to Howard The Duck.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:36pm Martinibomb:

@Don-O that is a good way to put that
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:39pm Don-O:

Trust me, the next 80's show will have a few things I still like from that decade.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:40pm Don-O:

BTW: Henry still doesn't like U2: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:45pm Rich in Washington:

Ah, 80s Lou. I remember getting New Sensations when it came out. Woof. Maybe a little better with age, limited availability of new Lou.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:46pm Mr Fab:

Lou's mid-career renaissance period was golden: "New York," "Songs For Drella" "Magic and Loss.". I saw his "New York tour." Something to tell the grandchildren.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:47pm Kat in Chicago:

That business about the Statue of Bigotry certainly resonates now
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:49pm grantbob:

Al!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:49pm Kat in Chicago:

Polka on 2 WFMU streams at the same time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:49pm Rich in Washington:

I love these medleys!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:51pm Mr Fab:

His grunge-era "Alternative Polka" is especially genius.
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:55pm Don-O:

Al did one more medley in the 80's but it consisted of all Rolling Stones tunes and it was used for his UHF OST
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:57pm Don-O:

Anybody getting polka sick so far?!
Avatar Fri. 1/25/19 6:57pm grantbob:

Thanks Don-O for a really nice hour of crap this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/25/19 6:58pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Don-O!
Moving the party over here right after this:

I'll be waiting for an hour of Polkacide.
