Yay Martha!
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:05pm Martha:

Hello Richard - hope you are doing well - and everyone else out there -
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:07pm rw:

Hey Martha! I'm not getting you show on my phone app. Sounds like ambient noise from the record fair maybe
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:08pm P-90:

Hi Martha. Yes, "Hardware Shopping" sounds almost like the record fair...!
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:09pm P-90:

...until all the heavy sanding started.
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:09pm Martha:

That is actually a track I am playing - recorded at a hardware store - will change up v. soon - should be getting the right some music now...
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:10pm Martha:

Yeah, well, have to make improvements sometimes - even when it isn't convenient -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 9:10pm fleep:

Music of a sort, yes. And a good evening to Martha and all.
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:11pm rw:

Oh! Sorry. Subversion of expectations is one of the reasons I like the station!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 9:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- also your Playlist wasn't on the Homepage
- it was 'ShutUpWeirdo''s for some reason...all sorted now it seems...
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:13pm Martha:

Hey - thanks for the heads up! - always good to check these things!
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:14pm Martha:

I think they couldn't do the accuplaylist [?sp?] from the Record Fair -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 9:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...together w/ the GenKen it was a real head-scratcher !...
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:16pm Martha:

I thought it would be kind of a neat segue -
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:17pm P-90:

Billy Jam's playlist was up, Mr. Fine Wine's wasn't, for whatever reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 9:23pm coelacanth:

Hello Martha; mammals; fleep!

absolutely love this noise! (unfortunately may not turn it up just yet.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 9:28pm coelacanth:

yeh,i almost didn't turn the sound on- because it said "shut up weirdo"!
  Fri. 5/1/15 9:31pm Martha:

Yeah - we'll get to some more noise later - have a pile o' noise this evening -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 9:41pm coelacanth:

their all gone. now i can divide my attention on my own terms.

Hi all - thanks for checking in - and the good words -
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 10:23pm JakeGould:

I thought “The Lighthouse Keepers” were “Lush” for a second.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 10:27pm coelacanth:

'never heard of "lush" but if it's like that track i'm psyched to hear more.
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:28pm Martha:

Hmm - yes, I can see that - from early 80s - Australia -

Thanks Jake. i saved it for later.

i've worked the dollar table. 'pretty low key near the end of a sunday,but still fun.

@fleep: Did you take that? it’s like going to Forever 21, but without the clothes and women… But lots of guys are bins of records. Planning on going tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 10:42pm coelacanth:

fleep my favorite part of that is the disembodied feet making their way through!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 10:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hanging out in the backyard with daughter & her cousin. They're bouncing on the new trampoline. Then they knocked out one of the lenses of my glasses. Will have to see if that can be fixed tomorrow. Hoo boy.
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:47pm P-90:

@Ken: if they were bouncing and you weren't, how'd they knock out your lens? Did a kid bounce off the trampoline and into your face?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 10:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We were throwing a Nerf football and I misjudged the ball.

@JakeGould It was a @WFMU tweet, for the far flung to enjoy. And near flung.
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:51pm P-90:

So if I see a dude at the Record Fair tomorrow with one lens missing, that's probably you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 10:53pm coelacanth:

Ken 'sorry to hear that.
-so,are you in the uk? all this time i thought you were my neighbor,a few towns and a river from me in ny.
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:53pm P-90:

I'll keep "one eye out" for you.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 10:56pm JakeGould:

“So if I see a dude at the Record Fair tomorrow with one lens missing…” I bet there might be about 2-3 of those. So need to specify what kind of frames.
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:57pm Martha:

Glasses - I never have two pairs and really should so when things go bad I wind up walking around in my prescription sunglasses looking like a total asshole - only good thing about them is they are so old I think they're back in style again...
  Fri. 5/1/15 10:58pm P-90:

So you wear your sunglasses out at night like a celebrity? Cool!
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:01pm Martha:

No. Asshole.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:02pm P-90:

You're soitenly a celebrity to us! Nyuk nyuk nyuk.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:02pm Martha:

Not you - me - in sunglasses - at night -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 11:03pm fleep:

The Venn diagram of celebrity and asshole has substantial overlap.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:03pm JakeGould:

@Martha: I have two pairs of similar frames with the same prescription to avoid that. But prescription sunglasses might be a thing for me this summer. Will see.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:04pm JakeGould:

@fleep: Venn diagrams often look like assholes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:05pm coelacanth:

once took a day-hike & i only brought my rx shades. then heading home we stopped for dinner. it was new brunswick nj,so after that we decided to go to a club for a bit. some guy wanted to fight me because i was wearing shades at night.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:06pm P-90:

I'm probably the only one old enough around here to remember the Corey Hart song...? Or the only one that wouldn't rather forget it!
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:06pm JakeGould:

“Yo, Corey Hart! Let’s do this!”
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:09pm P-90:

Jake! bless your AARP card-carrying soul. I'm not so alone after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:10pm coelacanth:

hmm. i'm pretty ancient,but i don't remember corey hart.
...but maybe that's senility.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:12pm P-90:

No, just Corey's eminent forgetability.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:12pm Martha:

You should get a pair of RX sunglasses - their great - as long as you don't go to dodgy Jersey clubs I gather...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:12pm coelacanth:

ohh, "sunglasses at night"! a classic! (not)
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:13pm Martha:

I remember Corey Hart - just heard that song recently in fact - always makes it onto those 80s comps -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:13pm coelacanth:

i didn't hate that song.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:14pm JakeGould:

@P-90: I think hip kids know who Corey Hart is. I mean, I met someone younger than me who was painfully trying o explain the cover to the “Morris Day and the Time” album and I just put a hand on their shoulder, and then pointed at my wrist looking cockheaded at them. We were soon friends!
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:16pm Shana:

Loving the Yellow Eyes...
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:17pm P-90:

Ithink Corey was one of those acts that benefitted from investing in a decent-looking video for that song, when MTV was still relatively new and STARVED for filler. Oops, I mean "programming." You could score a big hit you wouldn't otherwise would have from that.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:17pm Martha:

Hey there - glad you enjoyed it! - two track one-sided release - You likely missed the Merzbow tho' -
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:18pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: I was a mere lad of 15 when this song entered my head. www.youtube.com...
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:18pm Martha:

You know - that isn't a bad song at all - I'm not going to sit around and listen to it but it's pretty well-written and produced -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:21pm coelacanth:

yes,P-90. i loathed emty-v for that. friends who formerly had decent taste in music were suddenly smitten with hollow crap because of dazzling videos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 11:22pm fleep:

To my understanding, it killed the radio star.

fleep,i was hoping someone would say it!

Ken, that's what i'd assumed; but...they were trampolining in the dark?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:28pm coelacanth:

[i guess flood lights suffice for jumping around]

this Darkspace is heavy.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:31pm Martha:

Awesome record - love this stuff - but will try not to spend the rest of the evening playing it -
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:32pm P-90:

No, "Sunglasses" is not a bad song at all, it's a nice example of mid-80's top forty synth-pop (complete with requisite Van Halen-tone guitar accents and the whole shebang.) I wasn't trashing the song, just noting that it got mega-exposure because he had a good video for MTV, and had a bigger hit than he would have without that advantage. And is still getting included in 80's compilations.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:32pm Raskolnikov:

Two of my favorite bands are from Umea. This sounds like one of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 11:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Trampolining in the moonlight, yes. I just got it this week, so they're pretty excited about it. We had a fire pit going, too. A very fun evening, on the whole.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:34pm JakeGould:

@P-90: I lived near the Brighton Beach/Coney Island boardwalk as a kid. My window faced the subway. Believe you me, of the song was a summer pop hit in the 1970s and 1980s, I would hear it day and night.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:41pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Tramampoline? Tramapampoline? WOW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 11:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I determined that a rubber band around the frame will hold the lens in place for tonight. These glasses don't have frames that go all the way around the lenses. There's some kind of fishing line thingy that holds them in place.
  Fri. 5/1/15 11:47pm Martha:

Hi there Raskolnikov - thanks for checking in - they are actually Swiss, I believe - though not sure exactly where they are from -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/1/15 11:49pm coelacanth:

'sounds like a good night Ken. (except the glasses!)

Jake,yeah,i was just a bit older;but "sunglasses..." didn't stay in my head long. i was fairly dedicated to "punk" at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 5/1/15 11:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Jake - They had 15-foot trampomolines for sale at Kame-Apart this week for about $300.00. Hours of fun and the kids get exercise and sunshine (when it's daylight). We saw a pair of bats on Wednesday evening. Good to know that some of them survived the winter.
Avatar Fri. 5/1/15 11:53pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: I was very into Rush in my teens and generic rock and new wave like the Police and such. Being introduced to the Ramones and even the B-52s was a big deal. Music videos in their infancy actually exposed me to more genres than one would think. So can’t hate! Thank you U-68!

Raskolnikov,is the punishment from within?
