I'm not sure I can handle this. giving it a go though, if I can weather Ken playing 3 hours of Bohemian Rhapsody I can survive anything

this is a lot easier than 3 hours of the same thing

Chart Sweep
Brain Vacuum...

please fade him up more, the tape down.

...it's one up on karaoke for having historical interest...& variety...altho' karaoke bar sake would be a plus...pardon - getting a drink...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm People Like Us:

yes, people tend to sing karaoke to "intact" songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm People Like Us:

Theme from a Summer Place (that's my DJ bed music too)
Avatar 7:08pm ranjit:

maybe we can have do or diy cutup karaoke someday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm People Like Us:

yes, how can we do that, cut up karaoke?
  7:09pm steevh:

i was actualy hoping for acapella. :-)
Avatar 7:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I'm only willing to take this as seriously as he is...
  7:09pm steevh:

but definitely this is pretty great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm People Like Us:

I think it's actually quite hard work to sing along with it - so although it's fun I think it's hard work to keep it up
Avatar 7:10pm groucho:

you should take the music track off this and play just Gwilly, it'll sound like he's having a breakdown, are you allowed to share this file? I'd love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm People Like Us:

yes, it's of course good as is, as acapella, but as radio I think it's better with Chart Sweep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm People Like Us:

Gwilly's a pretty good singer actually
Avatar 7:11pm ranjit:

well, first we need someone with audio and video editing skills to make the singalong videos with lyrics (*hint hint*)

I bet we could find more than one venue in nyc that would host it. Barbes? Roulette?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm People Like Us:

I would like to do a karaoke thing - have been thinking about how to do it actually
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Rich in Washington:

this is nuts. Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm People Like Us:

If you heard an hour of this it would of course push your Irritainment appreciation buttons but I assure you that this is the better way to listen to it as radio
  7:13pm steevh:

i wonder what hugo keesing would think about this.
Avatar 7:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's a feat of endurance awlright !...on whose part...no I be funny...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Rich in Washington:

Wasn't it Osymyso that did that piece with just the intros to hundreds of songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm People Like Us:

he has done something like that, yes
  7:15pm Phil:

This sounds like me driving across country alone at 4 a.m., and trying to stay awake.
Avatar 7:15pm groucho:

I'm a video editor, I'd love to take that on as a project ranjit, though I may regret saying that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm People Like Us:

a few people have - DJ Food did too, but not intros
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

If I heard this out of context/out of nowhere I would assume it's some insane person in an institution singing along to a greatest hits compilation commercial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm People Like Us:

yes, it is like radio on the radio, so to speak
  7:15pm johnny cretaceous:

he's really nailing it! what a range!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm People Like Us:

it's amazing how many songs ARE recognisable
Avatar 7:16pm ranjit:

Yeah he even "nails" the ones where he obviously doesn't know the song!

Yeaaahh groucho.
  7:18pm Phil:

My wife loves all the songs from this era
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm People Like Us:

so do I
Avatar 7:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- are these only #1s ?
Avatar 7:19pm groucho:

aye me mam's loving this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm People Like Us:

even though Chart Sweep is "avant" it is also "pop", so it's perfect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm People Like Us:

I think they are number 1's yes
here's the background.. about to post urls
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Rich in Washington:

There needs to be a bit more 'pop' in 'avant' anyway. It keeps it from becoming too pretentious.
  7:21pm tom:

Hello! Great show, just tuning in. Chart sweep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Andrew Waterloo:

I remember watching all those K-Tel and Time Life commercials thinking it would be cool if I could hear those songs all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm People Like Us:

there needs to be more avant in pop in avant in pop
Avatar 7:22pm Cliff:

My mind has turned to musical mush
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm People Like Us:

I would never recognise a Chart Sweep made this decade, I only know things through mashups now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm People Like Us:

it IS like a radio tuning on a car journey, that is quite correct
  7:23pm Phil:

agreed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Rich in Washington:

I know what you mean. Most popular mashups these days go completely over my head, unless there's something kind of weird in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Krys O.:

Reminds me of spinning the dial on the old family Grundig as a kid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm People Like Us:

when I hear something from now I think "oh that's from xxx mashup!"
  7:25pm Phil:

Gwilly gets easier to listen too after awhile... ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

Or the Girl Talk route; use the lowest-hanging-fruit in terms of grooves and bits of the most popular tunes imaginable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Andrew Waterloo:

I just find it unsettling that I can hear a song on the radio and usually be able to guess which artist it is withing two tries simply because I've scanned a magazine rack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm People Like Us:

yes he does, you're slowly sinking in the mud
Avatar 7:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...an old joke deserves infinite retelling
...guy visits his old Dad @ the Home - they're all sitting around saying #s to each other & laughing uproariously. He asks his Dad what's up & is told, 'We've told the old jokes so much we just refer to them by # now. Try it!'
- so he says - '32 !!'
...No one laughs...
- Old Dad tells him - 'Well son - some people can tell a joke - some can't'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Rich in Washington:

I love how suddenly Gwilly goes totally apeshit on a particular song and gives it maximum gusto.
  7:28pm Phil:

Like being in a pot of water slowly brought up to boil...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm People Like Us:

there's a video in the left hand column - he shot it a couple of weeks ago to advertise this show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Krys O.:

Ding a ling!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm People Like Us:

btw if you like this you should listen to Nick The Bard singing on headphones on Kenny G's show from a few years back, it's great. I would have liked to have heard that WITH the music too though :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Rich in Washington:

This chart sweep is making me aware of how much top 40 radio I was exposed to as a youngster - a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Andrew Waterloo:

It's like having your crush press up against you.... because he/she is making out with your friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm People Like Us:

SO much Paul McCartney in this Chart Sweep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm People Like Us:

yes, I know 95% of this
  7:30pm ANNA:

SO BEAUTIFUL! LOVE YOU GWILLY!
  7:31pm ANNA:

I love singing along with Gilly
  7:31pm Daddy Rich:

This is f-ing awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Rich in Washington:

I love how he just gives the Hooga Hooga Hooga Shocka a cursory reading
Avatar 7:31pm Cliff:

Paul and MJ were battling each other for a while there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Andrew Waterloo:

I haven't heard anything the music that Micheal Shelley calls a #1 hit yet
Avatar 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I always say me & Top40 parted ways mid70s...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Rich in Washington:

I think as he progresses through the 80s, into the 90s and the oughties, I will recognize less and less of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm People Like Us:

I got lost this century
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm dale:

just tuned in - god, this is good. sounds like it's fueled by caffeine, sugar and stout.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm People Like Us:

Top 40 - I lost track in about 1985
  7:34pm Bluff Chill:

Anyone else detect utter contempt for all the Beatles tunes there!? Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm People Like Us:

this is fuelled by cooking
  7:34pm marc:

An old friend of mine introduced this to me in the 80s. He recorded on cassette and added to the chart sweep "medley" every time a new number one song charted on Billboard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm People Like Us:

Oh Gwilly LOVES the Beatles!
Avatar 7:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yerknow - why didn't TheRamones chart - all that...I would be taking the piss out of it all the way - he's a champ !...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm People Like Us:

do you still have the cassette, Marc?
  7:35pm ANNA:

potential to become next justin bieber if we post these on youtube
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm dale:

vicki - meth cooking?
  7:36pm Bluff Chill:

I hope one day to see him live again he is such enormous fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm People Like Us:

one would think but if you check the video on the left it looks like polenta but maybe Gwilly will let me know and I'll tell you what fuelled it
  7:37pm Phil:

dale: LOL!
Avatar 7:38pm ranjit:

i've been cooking while listening to this, and it's going well, so i can attest that the connection is real.
  7:39pm Phil:

I am in fact enjoying this - just sayin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm People Like Us:

what are you cooking?
Avatar 7:39pm tim:

Don't fear the subjectivity.
Avatar 7:39pm groucho:

this second half is going a lot slower than the first half, probably because I don't know as many of the songs as I did in part 1. still laughing regularly though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm dale:

only thing he doesn't do that i do is make up dirty lyrics to the songs. he does scat and improvise quite nicely though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm dale:

this needs to be a marathon premium
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm People Like Us:

Chart Sweep 2 is significantly shorter than Chart Sweep 1 - which would signify that the maker wasn't so interested in the latter decade
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm People Like Us:

Gwilly knows the radio rules
Avatar 7:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- exactly dale - he's an endurance athlete...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm People Like Us:

check some of the video links I'm putting on the left - some great stuff and lots of downloads/videos
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm dale:

i just microwaved a piece of vegetable pot pie i made a couple of nights ago, with some spinach salad on the side. washed down by vodka and tonic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm People Like Us:

damn I know - I have already submitted my marathon premium idea though
I wish it was this now
Avatar 7:42pm ranjit:

I made lentil soup and rice with pepper butter and collard greens with potatoes and turnips.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm dale:

ranjit - i made lentil soup a few days ago and can't finish it. i have the worst gas from it. read that baking soda in the water helps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm People Like Us:

thanks for the food news everyone
Avatar 7:44pm ranjit:

Ha! It helps to soak the lentils for a long time beforehand, and change the water a few times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Rich in Washington:

I have gotten to really appreciate bok choy lately. Plus, it's fun to say.
  7:44pm tom:

Love the cheesy 80's production. Reminds me of pop music today except more memorable.
  7:44pm Rueandfork:

This is perfect music. If I drink some chartreuse, it will be even more perfecter.
Avatar 7:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...he's just like us - he doesn't know the later ones either...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm People Like Us:

it helps to put the lentils down the toilet, cut out the middle man
Avatar 7:45pm ranjit:

I sense we have a lentil negativist here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm People Like Us:

Gwilly is probably our average age, dare I say

HA! down the toilet.....sad but true.

55 - ugh!
  7:47pm Phil:

How about a poll of listener ages?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

I got my average down to 48, by working on my short game.
Avatar 7:48pm Cliff:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm People Like Us:

what will we do when we run out of recognisable music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm dale:

i say the average fmu listener is 40s-50s, or the ne'er do wells and slag abouts who comment here are, anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm People Like Us:

I think Gwilly is 48

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Andrew Waterloo:

Yah... Kids on the Block were a show and tell thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm dale:

gwilly has a nice bass-y timbre to his voice. makes the falsettos extra special and the barky grunts so sweet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm People Like Us:

Yes, thanks for board opping Tim - stay tuned, folks, he's filling in for Bethany at the top of the hour!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Rich in Washington:

I've been enjoying that minor/major key change thing but many more modern songs re-done aren't familiar to me.

I MADE SISSYFIGHT! Working on the re-releaase now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm People Like Us:

yes, Gwilly does a good range, pitchwise
he's very good at rapping too, shame we can't go on a decade or at least into a different chart

waaait, how is this like sissyfight? maybe you're thinking of a totally different sissyfight?
