(We were all carefully listening to your intro)
Avatar 4:03pm flannery:

how's everyone feeling today
Avatar 4:03pm Feldpausch:

Or were we trying to add to the feeling of loneliness??
Avatar 4:03pm flannery:

i live in misery... kansas city misery that is
Avatar 4:03pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Oh what a sad guy, that Bobby. Pathetic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm MHLee:

I had a 70s radio from my dad as a kid... it only picked up on channel which played this style of oldies exclusively... i mean sometimes it went back to Glenn Miller but it was noticably white
Avatar 4:03pm flannery:

this would be a pretty killer show if no one commented but i would miss it lol
Avatar 4:04pm flannery:

wow damn mhlee, u know i would be listening
Avatar 4:05pm StringOFperils:

Still catching my breath...and this slow dance under the disco-ball is helping.
Avatar 4:05pm flannery:

i used to listen to coast 2 coast and was a big fan and its, maybe to no one's surprise, a very lonely show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Well, since you asked, I'm fine right now, but later on I'll be ready to stab myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm MHLee:

The only doo-wop adjacent song it played was the lion sleeps tonight... the channel plays stuff like the beatles now and probably further
Avatar 4:05pm flannery:

OK franco good news this show goes from sad to vindictive
Avatar 4:05pm Paper Kosmonaut:

@Flannery 04:03 : and when you already *are* in Kansas, clicking three times with your heels also doesn't help.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm MHLee:

I need to get Rusty Draper's version of freight train but it's not on spotify

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm MHLee:

Also this song sounds like it comes direct off of the point soundtrack
Avatar 4:09pm flannery:

hi rich!
Avatar 4:10pm solo mon:

“Honey” by Bobby Goldsboro and “Seasons in the Sun” Terry Jacks are two big bummer oldies hits

Hi flannery!
Hi flanlanders!
Avatar 4:10pm flannery:

Avatar 4:10pm solo mon:

Oops two of my favorites
Avatar 4:10pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Or Kathy Linden's "Heartaches at Sweet Sixteen"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Franco Twinkie:

I spent my nineteenth birthday sitting on the grass at MacArthur Park. There wasn't a raindrop in sight, let alone a goddamned cake.
Avatar 4:11pm Paper Kosmonaut:

@ Franco: LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm MHLee:

Bawlers...
Avatar 4:11pm solo mon:

I got mugged in MacArthur park in the 1980s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Rich in Washington:

I think I have a whole 'story songs/people dying' section of my 70s 45s.
Avatar 4:11pm StringOFperils:

I faved this episode already, so I can cry about later
Avatar 4:11pm flannery:

i found a great comp when i was doing this episode but frankly the recordings sound like shit... debris: emotionally ridden garage 'n' psych
Avatar 4:12pm flannery:

whoa u can fave an episode??
Avatar 4:12pm solo mon:

“Smile now, Cry later.”
Avatar 4:12pm StringOFperils:

Avatar 4:12pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Star next to date/episode.
Avatar 4:12pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar 4:13pm solo mon:

She played in Portland a year or so ago.
Avatar 4:13pm Paper Kosmonaut:

a not-so-cheesy bawler is "Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone" by The Walkabouts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm MHLee:

sha na na has some deeply melacholic tracks
Avatar 4:13pm flannery:

damn
Avatar 4:13pm solo mon:

Debris would be such a pretty name for a baby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, I think at Mississippi Records. I didn't go because I never go anywhere.
Avatar 4:14pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Joe Rando? Yorando!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Franco Twinkie:

What the hell were you doing in MacArthur Park in the 1980's Solo? I guess you from out of town. By then, locals knew enough to stay out of that toilet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

Biff Debris.
Avatar 4:14pm StringOFperils:

Debris Lafayette
Avatar 4:14pm solo mon:

I went to see her because it’s literally down the block.

Like That Erica woman whose name was spelled AirWrecka.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm MHLee:

@rich between you and the death disk of the week of WWR there's definitely enough tragedies numbers to keep things going
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm MHLee:

I actually might have a few local tragedy songs on a cd I bought that says on it NOT LICENSED FOR SALE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Rich in Washington:

@MHLee: I got WWR's premium CD of DDotW and it's a thing of beauty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm MHLee:

Sketchy comps with bad sound quality are how you find great music
Avatar 4:20pm flannery:

100%
Avatar 4:20pm StringOFperils:

Dion the god
Avatar 4:20pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Jacky Lee gets my vote for funniest guitar sound.
Avatar 4:21pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Then you never heard MY guitar, Franco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm MHLee:

Oh btw, I just found that numero uno has a sublabel of forgotten girl groups
Avatar 4:22pm Paper Kosmonaut:

It goes Fhrüübløpppp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm ARB:

I'm stoically waiting for the revenge segment.

  4:27pm asa:

Avatar 4:27pm flannery:

Avatar 4:28pm StringOFperils:

Existential Soul
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm MHLee:

I've found so much great stuff digging into their re-releases
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm MHLee:

Well that's going into my next oldies show
Avatar 4:30pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm MHLee:

I have to restrict myself from buying everything they've released ever
Avatar 4:32pm flannery:

yeah when i look at their website im just like ah shit shit shit
Avatar 4:32pm Paper Kosmonaut:

What would it have taken to get some emotion out of Lou Reed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Don't cry Penny, go to the fuckers house and pour bleach on their front lawn.
Avatar 4:33pm StringOFperils:

Nice lost gospel record

Man, this guy is tearing his heart out
Avatar 4:34pm Paper Kosmonaut:

THis is an easy one, Robin has always sounded like he was about to cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Franco Twinkie:

I love this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Rich in Washington:

HA! A version of this song popped up while I was out running errands about an hour ago.
Avatar 4:35pm solo mon:

Jesus, the original comedian.
Avatar 4:35pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm MHLee:

@solo mon definitely went to a service called that in college
Avatar 4:36pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Reminds me of junior high and all the misery there in.
Avatar 4:36pm Paper Kosmonaut:

I do like the BeeGees though.
Avatar 4:36pm StringOFperils:

Nice to hear this without scratches
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Aitch:

Early Bee Gees is fun
Avatar 4:36pm Paper Kosmonaut:

School is a battlefield for your heart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Rich in Washington:

I just found a cheesy would-be Jesus Christ Superstar/Godspell xtian musical album called The Clown.
Avatar 4:37pm StringOFperils:

Early Guess Who is fun too
Avatar 4:37pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Well, who are they then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Franco Twinkie:

The only person that ever made me cry at school was a teacher.
Avatar 4:38pm StringOFperils:

ARe you going to play that on your show, rich? Hint hint
Avatar 4:38pm flannery:

i first heard this in that movie CHRISTINE not the one about the car
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm MHLee:

I always feel like a phlegmatic then I hear sad music and break down into melancholy
Avatar 4:39pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Franco @ 04:38 is that an unissued Dusty Springfield song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Rich in Washington:

Most likely, SOp! I haven't listened to it yet. I have a large haul of thrift store records I need to preview for (lack of) quality assurance before subjecting them to listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Franco Twinkie:

I think it is, actually.
Avatar 4:40pm StringOFperils:

Effort appreciated O_O
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Otis:

Hi Flan, a bit late to the party. Had to wheelbarrow a load of kitty litter up the block today.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Otis:

It's a "two cats, one box" sorta day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm MHLee:

The Muswell Hillbillies album practically overflows with the melacholia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Otis:

Kinks help.

Avatar 4:44pm Paper Kosmonaut:

I'll clean the cat's shitbox tomorrow.

Avatar 4:45pm flannery:

hyperarticulate extremely misanthropic read on the kinks. not wrong but also ...
Avatar 4:45pm Paper Kosmonaut:

nice voices, these Heart Beats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Otis:

Flan, were a fan of Factsheet Five, years back too? I love zines but haven't been involved in any for almost 20 years now.
Avatar 4:45pm StringOFperils:

The Mike Cotton Sound is in THE KINKS on Muswell so it's happy sad with all that brass
Avatar 4:46pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Otis:

There's an anthology? Holy moses, going to look that up. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Otis:

I am still too young for most things. But never too old.
Avatar 4:47pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Otis:

Did not know about the Zine Reader. Bookmarked, yay!

This song is a cockroach in between your pancakes on a sunny morning.

Beirut's gulag orkestar has hit the sad-happy and horns for me recently... more so than In an in an aeroplane Over the Sea has ever done for me
Avatar 4:51pm flannery:

Avatar 4:51pm StringOFperils:

That NMH horn stuff is mental, I was in a room with them up close watching them play that. Crazy lot of racket
