Games at 9:30
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm G:

Michael's right, Steve would have been 66 today. Didn't make it past 44
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm efd:

hey john! hey Michael! Yes, I am aware of that but I'm planning a set of Ohio Players songs later in memory of their frontman, which -- according to my personal format -- probably means no Steve Marriott trib. At least not tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm efd:

maybe I can sneak one song in. :)
Avatar 9:23pm Loretta:

well allright!!!! Teenage Lust & the Lustettes. thanks Evan.

In before the first set ends. Looking forward to the live set. Good evening all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm G:

Ohio Players. I had to special order the Pain Parts I and II 45 when I was in England in very early 72. They probably only pressed a few hundred of them over there, it wasn't exactly anywhere near the UK charts!

You're welcome Loretta! Couldn't get to it last week, glad you're here to catch it tonight!

"last show ever" -- gets 'em every time
  9:41pm og:

i don't care for promoters much .
  9:41pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--did you see the Alex Patsavas quote about the "prequel" to Sex and the City (she's the music supervisor)--she said she researched a lot of college radio station playlists from the early 1980's in New York---sounds like you should send her some airchecks (I doubt she'll be playing any noise the show however)
Avatar 9:41pm Loretta:

hey barkevious, thanks for the compliment! we all were really into 'the coop' back then & I for one still am...just bought Killer, again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Promoter:

"last show ever" -- moves merch like NOTHING ELSE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm steve:

he exactly. seriously though i hope they realize how much money they could be making and just do a big tour every year. if they were on coachella or something the kids today will eat them up.

Renee Scroggins drives an MTA bus . it's real for the girls from the south bx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm G:

@og: in case people don't know --

"On May 9, 2007, ESG drummer Valerie Scroggins was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on charges of falsely claiming more than $13,000 in workers' compensation payments. Scroggins, then working as a bus driver for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (New York), told them that she suffered a shoulder injury in September 2006. In November 2006, Scroggins went on tour with ESG, where an MTA investigator filmed her playing "drums for an hour or more and on every song the band played, doing things very similar to actions she told her employers she could not perform," according to the Brooklyn DA's press release. Scroggins asserts that her injury is legitimate and that she could not safely drive a bus."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm efd:

hey og! If I remember correctly there was some scandal involving Renee after ESG played the WFMU show at Southpaw 5-6 years ago. It was in the Post and everything.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

@Michael, I didn't hear about that! Not sure if there are (m)any old WNYU playlists out there, but maybe she'd be interested in my more recent "Mayhem..." WFMU marathon premiums that have stuff I played back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@loretta Killer is one of my all time faves. Start to finish.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm G:

see also the song;s wiki entry:

"The song has a persistent urban legend. During an instrumental portion of the song, a high-pitched scream is heard (between 1:24 and 1:28 on the single version, or between 2:32 and 2:36 on the album version); this was Billy Beck, but according to the most common legend, it was the voice of an individual being murdered live while the tape was rolling. The "victim's" identity varies greatly depending on the version..."
  11:11pm daveB from Oakland:

i initially became aware of the Ohio Players via a white-boy garage funk band called Royal Crescent Mob. The singer from Royal C mob had mowed Sugarfoot's lawn when he was a kid. Or mAybe it was another member of the OPs. But that's how i remember the story.

@daveB: "In 1998, Tyler began dating British musician Royston Langdon of the band Spacehog. She and Langdon... married in Barbados on March 25, 2003.
