Hi Don-O!

Tuned in, my soundtrack for the next 2 hours while getting back to work.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:01pm Don-O:

Hey, Rich Read for some late 70's abuse?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:01pm Rich in Washington:

ALways! Do your worst!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:02pm Rich in Washington:

Get back to work, Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:02pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man. This is on my 70s playlist for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:03pm Rich in Washington:

not this remix I mean. New to me. Must snag.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:03pm Don-O:

Work, Otis, World. Mo' Money means Mo' Music!!!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:03pm Martinibomb:

I'm here listening Don-o... just doing some arty stuff
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:04pm Don-O:

Ti's on YouTube!!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:05pm Don-O:

'Artsy Stuff' is cool!!! I hope my racket doesn't destroy the mood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:06pm Rich in Washington:

I've amassed quite a collection of great/bad 70s hits on 7". Not sure why. Maybe I secretly want to torment a roomful of people with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:07pm Rich in Washington:

really the low-hanging fruit where bad music crate digging is concerned, but fun nonetheless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:09pm Otis Fodder:

Thankfully I can swim, going to back to shore, but it was a fun Yacht Trip. Ha!

But... this does really flash me back to my AM radio in the 70s riding my bike and listening to Starbuck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:09pm Rich in Washington:

I fairly recently spent almost an entire day cataloging all my 70s and 60s 7"s on Discogs and it was kind of funny to see how hundreds of records had a really negligible increase on my collection's 'net worth', as most mass marketed 45s are like pennies per pound.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:09pm Don-O:

We'er talking about Safety here, folks!!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:10pm CC:

I love really good crap!!!...hehehe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:10pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man, Don-O!
You must be reading my mind! I'm playing a CE3K disco track today too! Not this one, though!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:10pm Don-O:

Guess 12 inchers are more "interesting" than the 7 inchers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:10pm Otis Fodder:

Starbuck is really good crap for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:10pm Rich in Washington:

Hiya, CC! Don-O has the best crap!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:11pm grantbob:

I had the Archer "Road Patrol" radio with horn... the oval one.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:12pm CC:

High Rich..!.. I'm going to keep listening
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:13pm Mr Fab:

Did Bill Murrays' longe singer character sing "Close...En...coun...ters...theme," or was that just me
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:14pm CC:

I can't help but wondering how many of you out there might have implants?!?...hehehe...:)0(:
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:14pm Mr Fab:

Hey, my "Disco Sickness" comp. Taken off thrift-store vinyl.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:14pm Don-O:

I think the former Beware Of The Blog has two bad disco compilations. Mt. Fab posted a couple more on HIS former blog as well. I see a Bad Disco Weekend in the future!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:15pm Mr Fab:

only breast ones, CC
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:15pm Rich in Washington:

My wife refuses to look me over for implants, so who knows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/14/19 6:15pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Ohhh, there's nothing quite like bad disco.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:15pm grantbob:

Trying to imagine "Good Disco Weekend"
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:15pm Don-O:

Mr. Fab: Nope, that was indeed Bill the Lounge Singer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:16pm Rich in Washington:

grantbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:16pm Rich in Washington:

That reminds me, I need to see Avenging Disco Godfather again. Rudy Ray Moore's finest moment.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:18pm CC:

I think disco must have started with Don't Rock the Boat..!..baby!!!...
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:19pm Don-O:

CC: For this show, Rock The Boat would be too normal.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:20pm CC:

Hahaha!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:21pm Rich in Washington:

This is so weird that you're playing CE3K stuff! Maybe we were talking about it on one of the shows?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:22pm CC:

I would have been 25 to 30
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:22pm Otis Fodder:

Loved all the disco Close Encounters!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:23pm Don-O:

Rich: doing a Star Wars Theme marathon would have been too easy. Plus, I never got underwater with SW as a kid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:24pm Rich in Washington:

There must be a lot of it. Luckily, none of this is what I am playing later. Probably helps that Close Encounters came out during the height of Disco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

one of my KBOO DJ pals does a huge Star Wars throwdown around every May 4th. It's crazy. So much old and newer remix stuff related to Star Wars.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:26pm Don-O:

Close Enounters got in in the right time as Saturday Night Fever came in and exploded in the summer of 77 and Close Encounters came out by December of that year. Well, John Williams never did a "dance" version of one of his themes ever again.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:27pm CC:

Kewl!!!...we need a good Man From U.N.C.L.E... cut like that!!...
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:28pm Mr Fab:

not a disco "Man From U.N.C.L.E."..? Did disco sink it's hooks into everything?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:31pm Don-O:

The disco wreckage was everywhere by 1981......and then came MTV and malls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/14/19 6:31pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Are the Tubes crap? Well... their later 80s stuff was (IMO).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

They were a really unique 70s rock phenomenon. Kind of alongside 70s Zappa, Sparks, etc.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:33pm Don-O:

I advert my eyes during that Tubes period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:33pm Rich in Washington:

but I know what you mean, Hopey. I think the pressures to break 'big' in the New Wave market sort of got to them.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:33pm Mr Fab:

Hopey, i interpret Don-O's use of 'crap' to also mean just 'stuff.'
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:34pm Don-O:

.....and now we're talking ABOUT crap....top 40 radio!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:34pm Rich in Washington:

Didn't George Carlin have this bit about your 'stuff' and other people's 'crap'?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:35pm Don-O:

THERE'S a crap connection!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/14/19 6:36pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I used to love this Carlin bit when I was a kid.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:37pm Don-O:

Class Clown still kills me!!!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:41pm Mr Fab:

Kraftwerk recorded versions of this song in like 6 dif languages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:42pm Rich in Washington:

There really was a calculator in this song. It's an actual model. Someone recently posted an article about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:44pm Rich in Washington:

I love Computer World.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:48pm Rich in Washington:

That Duke set is amazing.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:50pm Don-O:

A great theme from a wonderfully crappy movie!!! God Bless Steven Speilberg and his older brother, Little Johnny!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:51pm Rich in Washington:

I don't think I've ever sat through 1941.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:51pm geezerette:

I won't stand for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:52pm Rich in Washington:

Hiya geezerette!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:52pm Don-O:

Did somebody JUST referenced a Stevie Wonder song here?!?!?!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:53pm Don-O:

Oh, Hey, Geez!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:54pm Mr Fab:

I was thinking this was the Faber College march from the Animal House soundtrack. Hey, at least I got Belushi right. has ANYONE seen all of "1941"?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:54pm geezerette:

Oh no! Don-O! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

We're really getting a look at the inside of your brain today, Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:54pm Don-O:

WARNING: this episode will go out with a large piece of major crap. Just warnin' ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

I had this book/record. What happened to it? Wouldn't be surprised if it's still tucked away somewhere in my parent's attic.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:55pm Mr Fab:

Weird bit of trivia I just learned: Mr Hands from Mr Bill was Ellen Degeneres' brother.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

Major crap! Yay!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:55pm Don-O:

Don't forget that both of those films had John Landis cameos!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:56pm geezerette:

Howdy,Rich! I remember all the same crap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:56pm Rich in Washington:

Oh weird. I guess Walter Williams had success as a commercial filmmaker and he uses Mr. Bill to raise money for charities. Oh man, I sound like a bot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

There wasn't. There wasn't any treasure down there. Poor Mr. Bill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

God. I remember this word for word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

OMG. How could you do this to us, Don-O?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm Mr Fab:

but...it's only June?
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm Don-O:

I suspect the shortness of time here will same you all. See ya at Rich's show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm Rich in Washington:

You are cruel, Don-O! Cruel but fair.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm Mr Fab:

Much thanks, Don-O! For the most part.
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm Don-O:

The keyboard stylings of Linda McCartney!!!!
Avatar Fri. 6/14/19 6:59pm geezerette:

This context underscores certain of Paul's...uh...qualities.
