Hello! There are tiny wet pebbles falling out of the sky at this time in Byram Twp. NJ. I guess it might be called freezing rain.

The Clash opening for the Who .... that was 80's era/post Keith if I remember correctly?. Still two of the greatest if not the greatest and original bands on the same bill. I mean who does or ever can sound like The Clash?. Nobody.

Hey John Monroe it’s great to hear you on FMU! I remember well the old WFDU back in the 1980s.,. Such a great station but then again we were spoiled by the post punk indie rock bands of that era. Tuxedomoon makes me think of good old Snakefinger. Keep on rocking
  Sun. 12/1/19 1:35pm sabretooth_dream:

I miss Glen Jones naturally but you’re killing it this gloomy Sunday afternoon, John Monroe!
  Sun. 12/1/19 1:36pm zephyr:

If you're taking requests: "Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up" by Jeff Simmons on the album of the same name....1969. Obscure but a good one IMO.

"Department S" was the TV detective show the band was named for, and which "Lost" was largely based on.
  Sun. 12/1/19 2:22pm Tom P, Brooklyn:

What a fantastic show!, John! All kinds of excellent stuff. Even Dave and Ansel Collins. I didn't think people in the US knew about them - until you explained they were big in NYC. Who knew? Wire, Undertones, Velvets, so many more. When are you on again? :)

Anyway, The Wire says "Dot Dash" is about cars being driven in fog, using low and high beam headlights. I and other listeners think it's about ships signaling each other in fog; dot-dash means "Diver down, steer clear."
