Happy new year Brian, Scott67, CoelyC!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am Scott67:

I see it originally cost me $25.95AU. Music is still mad expensive in Oz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am Brian D:

Hello all. Happy New Year!

Avatar 🗒 3:14am Hoboken Jack:

Brian, I haven't been to a show since 12/16 -- everything's been canceled!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am coelacanth∅:

greetings H Jack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am Brian D:

Yeah, I wondered, @Jack...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23am Scott67:

Okay! I confess, I was a U2 fan back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Brian D:

Me too, Scott.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25am Scott67:

Had Unforgettable Fire on Vinyl.
& the T-shirt.✌😎👕
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25am coelacanth∅:

they were great back then
-and what a voice he had (has?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am coelacanth∅:

when boy came out they were lumped in with the "punk" thing and we were very hip in the clubs to know who u2 is!
  3:29am Gnomon:

I for one have been wondering how long it would take for that song to show up this year, as for the first time in years I wasn’t working a NYE party. Pleased to see it took almost exactly 24 hours. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am coelacanth∅:

haha! i didn't even make the connection!
(i've had it pop into my head on past new years days though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32am Scott67:

I'm with you coel. I just think of the N.Ireland Troubles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35am coelacanth∅:

-just so, Scott.
  3:37am listener phillip (in the bronx):

Also gothic horror novelist anne rice and just a few days ago betty white. I hope sir you arent going to leave them out
  3:38am listener phillip (in the bronx):

I'm awake because I caught the omacron variant and have 100 fever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Brian D:

Phillip, we "covered" Anne Rice last week. May address Ms. White next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Scott67:

Brian, making me go to my CD Rack tonight mate. I have Bob's Vegetarians of Love there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Brian D:

Sorry to hear, Phillip. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am coelacanth∅:

Scott, and random coincidence (?), i was reading the back of a that petrol emotion album yesterday -about england's "prevention of terrorism act" which has allowed them to detain for up to 7 days around 5500 people that were ultimately never convicted of anything.
  3:40am listener phillip (in the bronx):

I'm sorry to say tylenol or advil isnt working😔
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am coelacanth∅:

(5500 between 1975 & 1984)
  3:41am listener phillip (in the bronx):

Ugh🤬 nice I go out with a,mask and gloves wash hands and social distance and still got it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42am Scott67:

It was rough there back then coel.
I lived there for a year in 92. & shit was blowing up & getting shot still then.
  3:43am listener phillip (in the bronx):

Two weeks in self isolation. That sucks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am Brian D:

Bob wrote an interesting op-ed about his "friend" Desmond Tutu. It's in the comments for the song, but I'll put it here, too: www.theguardian.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am coelacanth∅:

hmmm, i'd like to read it, but the guardian... their over-the-top capitalism freezes up my computer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Brian D:

Some very "1984"-ish policies in Britain back then, @Coel. The BBC had a policy about not allowing "terrorists" to speak on the air, so they'd have Gerry Adams interviewed, but dub over his voice using an actor (Stephen Rea, as it turns out).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Brian D:

So sorry for your troubles, Phillip. Shows how dangerous this thing is, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am Scott67:

Hah!! The irony!📽🎬
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Scott67:

Get well soon, or sooner Phillip.
✌😎🌷
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53am coelacanth∅:

yeah for sure Brian... and the bush family (starting with their puppet reagan, if not before) wanted a piece of that action so created the "patriot act"...which is worse in some ways, being more covert, and more insidious.
Avatar 🗒 3:54am Pablexa™:

She's Talking™ cuz I doubt I'll be awake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am Brian D:

Indeed, @Coel. More on Bush later, if we have time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am Scott67:

Pabs, I will hold ya to that mate!
👍😎🍻
Avatar 🗒 3:59am Pablexa™:

@Scott67 Happy New Year mate - Although it may be 2023 with you - I've never been good at the maths and time zone thingy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am Scott67:

Same to you Pabs! 2022+2 here this evening mate! Nothing has fallen off yet!
👍😎🍻
  4:03am Cooh John:

Good morning Brian, Scott67, coelacanthø, et.al. Happy New Year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am Scott67:

G'day Cooh.J! Good ta seeya mate!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am coelacanth∅:

Avatar 🗒 4:06am Don in Tampere:

Happy new year all! It's a snowy day here in Tampere, hope to go for a walk on the lake later. Also was sorry here to read about Tutu's passing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am Brian D:

Hello @Cooh. Happy New Year. And you too, @Don.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08am Scott67:

Paulo would be here. But UAE changed the Weekend to Sat/Sun. So he can sleep in now. Plus he just flew home from the States yesterdayish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am coelacanth∅:

Sate voyage to the subconscious coel! & a swift return.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Smooth sailing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Scott67:

Safe even**
  4:43am ?:

Politics? Ugh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am Scott67:

Protect the living! Not the litigation. Women are the decision maker. No other fundamental fucker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Scott67:

I have co-contributed & was conspiritor to end a pregnancy.
It's not a choice made lightly. But must always remain thechoiceof the woman who is pregnant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Brian D:

Been there, too, @Scott. And agreed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57am Brian D:

Tony Allen's Afro Disco Beat originally released in 1977, by the way. For those of you who care.

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:39am fred:

I had never heard of Ben McFall, looks like he was an important figure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42am Brian D:

For the Strand Bookstore, its customers and the surrounding city, he was indeed, Fred.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:46am fred:

CIA Debutante has been getting a lot or airplay on the station. Which is extra weird to me because I haven't seen them in years because of you know what
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49am Brian D:

Right, Fred. They are well liked/respected here, for sure.
