Killing it here tonight Dave.
Avatar 🙉 10:31pm

I didn't even know he was sick. (Srsly, SO MANY people!! Thanks, Dave.) Okay. Nobody else dies! Pinky swear?

I worked with R Dean Taylor briefly in 2007 while working at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame - we inducted Love Child. He was a reserved, kind man, but I remember was low key annoyed that we inducted that song rather than his solo stuff. I had no idea he passed, heard about it 20 minutes ago listening to your show, thanks for the great tribute.

Is the turntable alright? Sounds like the 2nd Ronnettes song in a row in wide stereo, but missing a channel.

one of the most important musicians of the 20th century USA brought to life by Dave the Spazz. Thank you. Neither of you will ever be forgotten.

I don't know if there is a god. But tonight's show is, for me, a religious experience.
Avatar 🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:31pm

WFMU is doing Ronnie Spector right. I'm learning a ton and really appreciating her connections to so many musicians. Bravo!
Avatar 🙉 11:31pm

Xmas album was remastered an released in hi-res (24-bit). Lot of Spector product could use a sonic spruce-up. This sounds great.

Heard the "hits' when they came out, but in '68 the college radio station where I was librarian bought a score of Philles singles. I just kept blasting them over and over in the McIntosh/Bozak system in the library. My synapses were permanently fused. This last week has been a deep dive into every emotion. NO one hits home more than Ronnie.
Avatar 🙉 11:40pm

Cher's got chops. Even if Phil didn't think so.
Avatar 🙉 11:42pm

But Cher is more likely to my ear to be a fake Crystal than a fake Ronette.

the pure joy in brian's voice
Avatar 🙉 11:46pm

These songs are giving me WCBS flashbacks. Getting driven to school in our Mercury Montego with the loud muffler
Sylvia's Mother:

Brian: “First time I heard ‘Be My Baby,’ I was driving and had to pull over. It blew my mind! I want to do something good as that. It’s like Einstein’s theory of relativity. Eventually, I got to work with Hal Blaine. He was supposed to play the snare on the second beat as well as the fourth. But he dropped a stick. He left the mistake in and it became ‘bum-ba-bum-BOOM!’”

I always find this song hilarious

My memory may be a little fuzzy but I think the first time i heard Be My Baby was in the womb, born October 63 . Thanks Mom.

After watching "Get Back", I realized George wrote a song about sending Mal Evans out to fetch Indian food.
