alright Joe! Nice Clash choice!!

@Roberto: Ha, oops, wrong Joe!

This is fun, thanks Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11am Stevel:

Greetings. Just in, so I'll be heading back to the archives for Au Pairs, among others.
Avatar 11:11am Joe McG:

Nice to see you on the boards again, Bad Ronald!
Avatar 11:11am Jeff:

Ah, the disco era - a time of such nuance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11am coelacanth:

damn- just missed radio clash.
oh well Greetings Joe & all others.
Avatar 11:12am Joe McG:

@Jeff: The nuance is all in the arrangement. It's amazing!
  11:14am Bad Ronald:

Thank you, it's nice to be back!

Oh my, I do not miss the disco era
Avatar 11:15am pierre:

Are you alright Joe ?!
Do you need help ?!

Because… YOU ARE ON FIRE !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am common:

love disco
Avatar 11:16am Joe McG:

On this record you can hear the bass that 12 inch singles were invented for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am adrian in mpls:

Joe--yr making a horrible work morning much better! Thanks
Avatar 11:17am pierre:

@DeaconDave: strangely enough I can't miss it (I wasn't born), and I guess i'm happy that it's not here anymore, I suppose it served its purpose, and that we now have plenty to relish on. But I love the ghost of a party it summons
Avatar 11:17am Joe McG:

My pleasure, adrian!
Avatar 11:20am chinaski:

a creedence dance mix?
Avatar 11:20am CTEmpress:

Right CHINASKI?? I was just thinking the same thing!
Avatar 11:21am Joe McG:

@chinaski: In case you need your CCR with a beat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am coelacanth:

this should not exist.
Avatar 11:22am PKNY:

I assume Ray T. was trying to cash in on the "Stars on 45" market.
Avatar 11:23am chinaski:

maybe it's for aerobics
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am efd:

I'm trying to figure out if "abomination" is too strong a word for this.

@coelacanth: You can blame Holland. And me.

I like it...

efd,it's not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am adrian in mpls:

but this so horrible that it's amazing, right?
Avatar 11:24am Joe McG:

@efd: I played the 5 minute version instead of the 8 minute version!
Avatar 11:25am Cecile:

OH. Love this Pete/Ronnie record
Avatar 11:26am Jeff:

Wow. That medley was both terrible and oddly good. It's kind of a less painful way to make it through that much of the CCR catalog pretty fast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am coelacanth:

...it's also for jogging, in spandex with leg warmers and big plastic shades.

Now this i miss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Parq:

"Street/City" has been a beloved favorite of mine for almost 40 years.
Avatar 11:28am Joe McG:

I'm enjoying myself, so I'm going to play more 12" singles. Sorry to anyone that is tired of this Single File.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Parq:

70s dance music = excess. I'm sure even efd would agree. Really, that Creedence thing was no worse than "Kung Fu Fighting".
  11:29am Bad Ronald:

It is a great record, I dig "My Baby Gives it Away." Keep on going Joe!
Avatar 11:29am Manolo:

Joe, I love your show. I think it has become my favorite show on wfmu. It just has some crazy mood swings I enjoy very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am coelacanth:

i'm surprised they put this on 12".

(i LIKE single file!)
Avatar 11:31am Joe McG:

Thanks, Manolo. It's true, I'm full of crazy mood swings most of the time.
Avatar 11:32am d¢ pät:

hmm... I think I'm going to put "disco-remix" on all my music from now on...
Avatar 11:33am steve:

this disco mix could really use some swishy hi hats
Avatar 11:33am Joe McG:

@d¢ pät: Can't go wrong.

"I think I'm going to put "disco-remix" on all my music from now on... "

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am coelacanth:

Parq -sorry but i think it was much worse. kung fu fighting is an original,and amusing; that ccr perversion almost made me cry!
Avatar 11:34am d¢ pät:

am I the only person on Earth that doesn't really care for Bowie? I don't hate him, just don't see what all the fuss is about...
Avatar 11:35am bobdoesthings:

Has anyone else had troubles with playlists not refreshing and then freezing when you go to refresh for long periods? Or is it my internet connection?? errgggh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am coelacanth:

...and this too is quite an oddity!
(bowie jumping on the bandwagon as well.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Stevel:

d¢ pät: Nope, you're not the only one. I like Bowie, but I have friends who absolutely do NOT share any of my enthusiasm.
Avatar 11:36am Joe McG:

@bob: I've been having this problem all morning. Help, Jeff!
Avatar 11:37am d¢ pät:

huh...don't kill me but, I feel the same way about Prince--love his guitar playing but his tunes just don't do it for me...
  11:37am Claw!:

@ d¢ pät : I'm with you, Toots. I don't hate his stuff, but it doesn't move me. I guess we're the real odditites...
Avatar 11:38am bobdoesthings:

@joe... ahh all good. just curious
Avatar 11:38am Joe McG:

I especially love the David Bowie - Prince Xmas album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am coelacanth:

i think Bowie's good- sometimes excellent..But he's a chamelian and he's made some terrible music.
Avatar 11:39am d¢ pät:

It's like Ranoldo if I may draw a soccer analogy, I recognize his talents but kind of get put off by his preciousness or something
Avatar 11:41am d¢ pät:

I mean listen to the strings in this! It's sophomoric at best...ok I shut up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am common:

i love bowie and prince - most of the time. my pardner and i refer to bowie as, "fuckin' bowie". cuz you just can't get away from him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am coelacanth:

Bowie seems like a good person to me;and he'll readily admit the obvious- that he changes his image to suit the market.
Avatar 11:42am chinaski:

ah, we needed some cowbell
Avatar 11:42am d¢ pät:

maybe that's it @common "you can't get away from him"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Parq:

I dig Bowie, but I feel the way you guys do about several other revered performers. Rickie Lee Jones and the Pixies leap to mind. Whaddaya gonna do?
Avatar 11:44am d¢ pät:

first 2 Pixies albums + EP are amazing but you're not alone there Parq. Cecile?
Avatar 11:45am Cecile:

I am not talking about the Pixies ever again.
I love everyone and every band.
Avatar 11:45am steve:

the record i found in the fmu basement!
  Swag For Life Member 11:46am 12539:

Bowie, Prince, Pixies...all well and good, but the one thing I think we can all agree upon is that we all love Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am common:

@cecile: heehee! i ate cake with black francis in the 90s. and yes, 12539!
Avatar 11:47am Joe McG:

@12539: Aw, shucks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am Andrew Waterloo:

Everytime I listen to the Pixies I'm overwhelmed with the thought that I didn't need to put on all the protective gear the fans recommended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am Greg from Bloomfield:

Joe is the WORST. (Wait, we're talking about Joe Rogan, right?)
Avatar 11:48am Cecile:

whether I LIKE all bands the same, that is matter for debate.
  11:48am V Priceless:

Haha @ Cecile Re: Pixies

I liked Joe Rogan on Newsradio, and his article on joke-stealing was pretty rad.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Parq:

Radiohead, yeah, there's another one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54am Parq:

The other side of the coin is my not being able to see what's more than mediocre about certain artists whom most people loathe. Look at how I shrugged off that Stars on Creedence thing. And I'm not going to turn this thread into a flame fest by naming any others.

I got a little carried away with the big records today. Next week back to normal! Thanks for listening, all, and have a great week (if not early summer)!
