What I hope to be remembered for after I'm gone: I was the person who spotted Ron and Russell Mael in the audience of the Big TNT Show. Will never forget that moment for as long as I live. :)

I saw the doc and was intrigued by the song "Now I'm Only Dickin' Around."

Haha Krys, that was awesome.

When I got this promo in at the record store I worked at, I brought it to a party and put it on and everyone was pissed. I don't talk to those people anymore.

Could this be an all-Sparks show from Noon-3:00? Here's hoping!

S'up Funk and the Funky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Hughie Considine:

Seeing Sparks on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert one night in the early '70s was for me what the Beatles on Ed Sullivan was for an earlier generation. I know this show will be gold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm geegee vindaloo:

When I heard two songs in a row I expected the worst.. thank bejeezus not the case
  12:06pm Kat in Chicago:

I really like that I have a mental image of them performing this live now
  12:06pm clarke:

speaking of lights going out... we got some weather coming thru new orleans, so if the nola faction disappears.... we lost power.

@hey Evan ... were you at the Sparks show??

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm B R M:

have to say, last night's show was so joyful- I have not seen an audience in Town Hall EVER be that into it. Was so moving...
  12:09pm b0b0b0b0b0b0b:

Sparks could have done an lp with Freddie Mercury
  12:09pm Maria D:

Atlanta Sparks show was so much fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm courtneynoir:

the Chicago audience last week was sitting down for most of the show except for a few happy folks who couldn't resist the dance! It was weird, I gotta say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm B R M:

Speaking of this, I have a deep hope that Ron has the original Baby Annette IRL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm efd:

@B R M and a real contrast to the audience on the first night, as I'd mentioned elsewhere. It took the night 1 audience a good 20-30 minutes to really get going.
  12:12pm clarke:

is there a mankey still involved with Sparks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm efd:

@clarke Not for many years, I don't think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm D Rok:

Are we doing an all Sparks show? I'd be totally okay with that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Glistener MW:

I still have to see "Annette"! I loved the same director's "Holy Motors" but haven't gotten to Annette yet as I was hoping it would hit a local cinema at some point... no such luck yet, though
  12:13pm CalZone!:

So wish I could have been at one of those shows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm solo mon:

Sparks show in Portland was incredible. The audience loved it. They sang along to all the songs like it was a Schlager beer garden.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm happymaan:

Loving the music but I had to login to make sure one of them didn't die or anything.

They should've kept their band name Halfnelson, they coulda been huge.
  12:16pm Bill 💵:

Why all the Sparks songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm luka:

because they’re good, Bill.

Hey @EFD and all, is there a good Sparks compilation for someone (say, me) that only knows the "big" singles (like "I Predict") that's a good catalog introduction?

Clay playing "This town ain't big enough for both of us" on Wake was my first exposure to Sparks, I love that song so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Alvy Singer:

If you had to point to one song that really influenced Sparks or at least Ron, I would have to say it was "My White Bicycle" by Tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Krys O.:

Their mom was Miriam Mael. She did run their fan club, but she's passed on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Hughie Considine:

@Bill, that was me. Kirshner and Propaganda was the gateway. I've tried to find it on youtube -- there's footage from an earlier performance on the Kimono tour, but I'm positive that the Propganda tour stuff aired in summer -- because I was at soccer camp and that's how I was able to see it at all. Thing is, I know I saw them play "Reinforcements," but I cannot find it anywhere.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Hughie Considine:

Lakewood, NJ, Clarke -- not far from Lakehurst of Hindenburg fame. At a women's college. It was very memorable. We had the whole place to ourselves over the weekend because our mothers signed us up for 2 weeks but everyone else just signed up for one. So, unthinkable as it sounds, three 13-year-olds were left in a dorm overnight -- and we watched Sparks and had our minds blown! Thanks for asking!

  1:21pm clarke:

anyway, when i was at soccer camp as a yout', somehow this station had powerful signal enough to reach to clemson, sc! at the time, it was a good FM station!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Handy Haversack:

Ah, gotcha! I think WFOX was the Fox TV affiliate? I can't remember the call sign for 96 Rock somehow. And before a mid-eighties format change, Z93 was a pretty good station as I recall. By high school I was mostly listening to WRAS (Ga. State) and WREK (Ga. Tech).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm herb.nyc:

just (re)tuned in, and see ILLUMINATI HOTTIES. the young librarian at my local site had the tee on, so i asked about the band. on further research, i learned the BETHS mentioned them. will note that in my notes, so i can notice later on.
  1:24pm clarke:

yes, played at WREK in the 80's. this was a powerful station that was pretty eclectic for that time - kinda like this station in jackson, MS, actually or WFMF in baton rouge (before it went all-disco, that is).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Handy Haversack:

Apparently 96 Rock still exists. WKLS. Maybe it's only digital now though? And so does Z93 --99,000 watts!

96 Rock was the one with the Perfect Album Side contest in which I once won $50 in Turtles coins!
  1:26pm clarke:

right-o!! i am sure by the time you were 'of age' this station probably started sucking, anyway.

They did a whole album of Roy Wood songs a few years ago.

Also see: Screen Test, which is three of the four Flashcubes, because the 4th one lives in Boston, not Syracuse. He has another band based in Boston (formerly based on Syracuse also) called 1.4.5.

McG - i refuse to accept Discogs cookie policy so my screen gets blocked out at a certain point.
  2:45pm clarke:

thnx, will check TTPB!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm McGroovey:

No, also "Inspired Humans Making Noise - An Anthology 1980-1986" : between the two, you get everything Screen Test did in the eighties.

RIP Nicky Tesco.
I loved to hear the Members on The New Afternoon Show. Their songs gave me an extra bounce to my step whilst listening on my Walkman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Mike Sin:

Enjoying the show today. Had to duck out around 2, but I've got the end of your show here cranking quite loudly now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm McGroovey:

Arty Lenin and Gary Frenay of the Flashcubes/Screen Test have also made solo albums that are great.

Starting with the Sparks! Missed it. But saw them in Raleigh this past Friday. Fun show at a small club. Russell said, "now this is a venue!" It seems like the set list is the same every night.
