...wull ...there's two strategies - right ?!
...Either emulate the regular FMU-J's style - exceeding or @ least meeting a celebrated specialist @ their own game
...or - utterly dazzle us with something completely different & thrilling to a most discerning conglomerate of distinctive listeners
- w/ something new & unexpected on an entire station of truly extraordinary & unremittingly exceptional Musics & Culture...
Either way - no pressure !...

My enduring memory of our Mercury is looking down at it from the observation deck at the L.A. City Hall. When my dad pointed it out, a parking lot attendant was moving it across the street. To me it looked like a pill bug, it was that small. Then I did the spatial conversion in my head just about passed out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm chresti:

Cars went through a revolving door when I was growing up as my dad sold used cars and would bring home different models he had a hankering for. Cant remember the first one, only that we could easily stand up in it.

I've only recently learned this song was by Yes. I'd hear it in cock-a-cocktail bars

@Franco -- right? it is like an endless cycle, maybe one out of 100 (or 1000!) will be successful?
same here in NYC area, every kid wanting to be a "famous" artist, actor, singer, whatever (well, accept for the trust fund kids who do not have to worry about such frivolous things like actually making a living)
btw, AMAZING playground! if that was near me, i would totally be going there every day too!

i despised it the moment i heard it.
...like much of 80s music it could be salvaged with a cheezy synthesizer-deleting device... which i'm working on

Heya chresti! This is a great show! Happy I turned it on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

yeah columbia (company) records never have anything interesting. nor do motown, i think.
...there was an overnight wfmu showhost in the 80s that asked people to call in with interesting etchings on their records. i called, and we talked for at least 10 minutes!
called back later with more, since hardly anyone was calling.

Classic Sisters!

@coel

Probably Nick Hill?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah wasn't sure I'd ever hear SofM again. But FMU...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Miss G:

Coel, what are we doing, looking for the runout? I pulled out Zen Arcade but maybe I have the boring version (nothing there) (have been playing "The Tooth Fairy and the Princess" nonstop lately)

Oh, this is just too good!

I be loving this show baby cakes

to be honest, i recorded it!

saw H S R at the Starwood - did they wear matching pajamas?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Miss G:

Coel I guess there was a story where Zen Arcade was not available for a long time, so I must have gotten a reissue of a reissue (I so loved that version of To Sir With Love, thank you Mr. DJ)

Kelly did he? i don't know if i ever called him. i definitely spoke a few times with Stan, Tamar, Bethany (i know, they're later)
  11:25pm Kelly Jones:

This show is da bomb
  11:25pm Sleve McDichael:

NEVER apologize for playing owner of a lonely heart. I turned on the radio just as it started and it brought a huge smile to my face to hear it on WFMU. My only hope is that it also annoyed any snobs tuned in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

did they wear matching pajamas?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Miss G:

Sleve McDichael you made me smile. Yesterday (?) I turned on Sheila B just when she was beginning a set of Genesis and I almost passed out from horror (but, was glad for those who enjoyed it)
  11:28pm Kelly Jones:

Coel…. I’m OLD! I do miss the days pre-social media when you could call and talk to your DJ and they’d answer the phone! I used to listen to Nick Hill in the 80s when I was at Pratt. He was a big flirt. It was totally awesome.
  11:28pm Will:

Killer sounds from Boston. Thanks Mr. DJ!
  11:28pm Kelly Jones:

Steve….

I TOTALLY agree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Miss G:

I was just telling a story to a friend about our mutual friend playing me a tutorial, after I had said (shouted) "I Hate King Crimson" and he showed me that no, indeed, I didn't hate them. *good memory*

PASTICHE!!! (from Boston?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm coelacanth∅:

i don't think any show host should apologise for playing what they want to hear.
i also am smart enough to know that not liking something doesn't make one a snob.
Avatar 11:32pm tak:

I hate SoMercy and I still have fond memories associated with them. that's how it goes!

Kelly Jones, I'm old too! I use to call a local DJ at 3AM and prattle on about music, and one day she saw me in a restaurant and came up and kissed me!

those recent Radio Row sets on boston indie have been killer

I remember matching pajamas of the sweat pants variety- maybe tie-dyed - Starwood closed in ‘81

Franco re: DJs, recently I found a handwritten note I got from NY DJ Meg Griffin, because I had written her to say "play more Ramones!" Those were the days
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm chresti:

A lot of stuff that get's played would not be something I would normally listen to, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

i never thought about contacting Meg Griffin, but i remember a few years before that, when my older brother had the radio on at bedtime, Alison Steele reading a letter on air saying she's a foxy lady, and that he'll (the sender) be getting an album in the mail!
