Good evening. Nice night to pack up a vinyl mailing.

I've really grown to love this Cute Lepers album. You're reminding me to put it back into the car. (They will officially follow the Sex Pistols.)

I played that Stereolab song for a friend of mine when it first came out and asked him to identify the group, and he guessed Inspiral Carpets, which I thought was weird given that he had never heard the song or heard of Stereolab before.

Hi EFD!
fwiw, native folks from Connecticut really, really do not like being called tri-staters. We're New Englanders, damnit.

Great Chris Stamey song.

#Barkevious, thanks for Miller family fund link.

@ Holly fine be like that we'll let PA be part of our group then ;)

For those that have not seen B.A.L.L will be doing a reunion show at Electric Ballroom or maybe this only excites me. :)

Also huge props to Jozef Becker for setting up Miller fund - Have I ever mentioned how much I love Thin White Rope?
And how they (including Jozef) played 1 of best shows I've ever seen to just 5 people?

WNEW and 92.3 K-Rock did it. I think Three-for-Thursday came later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/24/13 10:49pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Say what you will about WNEW, but Scott Muni's voice taught me that rock 'n' roll was actually important.

WPLR (New Haven) MAY have done it ... I listened to a lot of NYC stations also

Re: "native folks from Connecticut really, really do not like being called tri-staters. We're New Englanders, damnit."

I always figured this to depend on the part of CT. Hartford is the Yankees/Red Sox dividing line. As a decades-long CT-crosser, I can't imagine anyone southwest of New Haven having too much of a case for not being a tri-stater.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/24/13 10:53pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Holly, you a WMass-er?
  Wed. 4/24/13 10:53pm Mike Sin:

I think "two for tuesdays," at least in NYC, might actually go back to WPLJ-FMin the late '70s, IIRC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/24/13 10:55pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I only really knew rock WPLJ from (mesmerizing, as a kid) TV commercials. By the time I tuned regularly in it was Power 95.

This Goodman is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/24/13 10:59pm Holly in NC:

@Pete - Born & bred JUST SW of New Haven CT (Milford, well before it became a suburb of fucking Greenwich - my whole lower-middle class neighborhood's been razed to make way for executive condos) and yeah, we were New Englanders. Then went to college & lived in WMass, which is where my heart is, really. Northampton.

@Pete - BYE, Milford was pretty much split 50 Yankees, 40 Red Sox, 10 Mets. I am personally a Yankee fan (Thanks, Dad!) as well as a New Englander. Also thanks to Dad I root for Giants not Pats or Jets. No one I knew cared about basketball (severe culture shock coming to NC). Whalers of course!

Holly -- I am a UMass 2nd gen, only left there by circumstance and not exactly choice. The biggest Giants fans I've known (growing up in NJ) were pre-Pats New Englanders from when the Giants were the New England team. I still love that there were people who hung onto their identity after the AFL/NFL tried to replace it.

I do love Durham. Durham is a great, great place.
And my subprime mortgage payment for 2BR house in 2013 is still less than rent I was paying for 1BR apt in Northampton in 1990.
