Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 10:27pm Erica:

Hey Larry, I hope your Souled Gold comp. gets sold a lot. I wish to make my own music compilations too, however I don't want to get in trouble for copyright infringement. So I would have to make them fan-made mix CDs or music files in a folder (I don't know how to press them onto vinyl and I don't have a tape recorder to make a mix tape anymore.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

in my case, at least, the stars are not always (or even often, probably) a good indication of whether i dug the track or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

@Doug - High praise indeed! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I don't sell the comp. It is only available to donors of WFMU
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 10:29pm Erica:

Still, people who donate $75 to WFMU who receive the comp. still counts as buying it.
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 10:30pm Franco Twinkie:

It's to cold to sit around al fresco, tonight, but I'll keep that in mind when it starts to warm up.

I love cold weather. I never use the heat (except for showering), so, this morning I looked like the stay-puffed marshmallow man as I was so layered up (all of my deep NYC winter gear is packed up in the back of my closet).

{I did notice more T shirts than usual in the list).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

i never hated the cold, generally, but still tended to crank up the heat, and ride a bicycle hard in 105ºf without a problem... i'm gradually conditioning myself toward cooler ambient temperatures though, and i think i'm getting healthier for it.

it's okay! - no offense but it makes me want to hear the original though!
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 10:47pm still b/p:

Bread so tied to pop radio nostalgia for me -- junior high age-ish for their big hits -- that the songs land in a pleasant place and no kind of objective place.

Another question for the DJs - how hard is it to get t-shirts as swag? I can see the simple labelled CDs with the folded cover. T-shirts seem hard to source.

I can never think of Benny as a soul song without thinking about how Elton's own version made the R&B charts and he appeared -- this is true -- on Soul Train. He said he wanted to be booked at the Apollo. I really am not convinced that he was kidding.

Keep those pledges coming in! Lots of cool stuff up for grabs in the second hour!

Thanks also to Dean in Berkeley, CA and Howard in Rochester, NY for your pledges!
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 11:16pm Franco Twinkie:

This version of Do It Again reminds me of over exposed film from Fotomat. That is the apotheosis the 70's.

Clint back in with another pledge for this hour! Thank you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Dean!
  Wed. 3/6/19 11:19pm Dean:

But Fotomat was, kinda, more convenient than the 'net. You didn't have to get online or anything. Just swing by while you're driving around on other errands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 11:19pm coelacanth∅:

i got a receipt at 10.39, but the system screwed up and split the pledge between this show and Evan's show, even though i took Evan's show away and just credited testify.
-which is okay. i like Evan Funk Davies after all, but now i can't be in on a prize drawing.
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 11:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Cumpleanos to your boy, Dean.

@C - Sorry, I'll keep refreshing the page
  Wed. 3/6/19 11:23pm Dean:

Thank you, Franco. He's a great kid.

I remember standing in line at Trader Joe's up here behind a guy who was playing in Etta's band at the time. She was in bad health at the time, not too long before we lost her.

Thanks, chresti. It never crossed my mind to name my son Deanson.

(By that measure, the son of Charles Mann woulda been...!)

On my thirteenth birthday my mom took me to the K-Mart in The City Of Industry and told me I could get any thing I wanted. I got Fresh Cream and Bayou County. I still have both of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/6/19 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

it's really okay Larry. just i'm trying to divide up my donation as much as i can, but without pledging less than $20. for any show.
  Wed. 3/6/19 11:27pm Dean:

Trying to imagine where K-Mart in Industry was. I'm sure I've seen it. I used to visit frequently the one in Whittier/Santa Fe Springs.

Shades of the IT Crowd, 'Have you tried turning it off ans turning it bak on again?'

Man, I cannot type tonight...

Dean, we had a Muslim Chinese in The Great Mall Of China close by. Many novel flavors and brown sauces if I remember correctly.
  Wed. 3/6/19 11:36pm Dean:

Have you tried turning off and turning on again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/6/19 11:37pm Folsom:

@F16C finally watched IT Crowd, now I know where "We're having an Ipod party" came from, had to stop the video and replay, made my friend mad

I have DJ'd City of Industry before true story, at least twice
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

RW, City of Industry has the weirdest shape. It's specially designed to accommodate smelly poisonous factories. I know! I grew up a block away.
Avatar Wed. 3/6/19 11:44pm Kris Holmes:

Isley Bros really destroyed the originals with that run of covers at that time
  Wed. 3/6/19 11:46pm Dean:

At least they had the decency to dub the town Industry, as opposed to, say, Happy Pleasant Villa Greens.

Franko, for sure. I just looked it up. Maybe I had it confused with City of Commerce which is closer to Vernon. Great name for a city full of smelly factories!
