Options September 16, 2015: Annual show dedicated to my high school friend Jim McIntyre, aka Jimmy Mack, without whose influence this show probably wouldn't exist.

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Back in October 2006 I dedicated my first show on the regular WFMU weekly schedule to Jim McIntyre, a/k/a Jimmy Mack, who was one of my best friends in high school. Pictured above is his Xeroxed 1977 Year In Review, which I was delighted to come across in a box of mementos recently.

Jimmy was the person who turned me on to a TON of new music that was coming out during the mid- and late-'70s -- Cheap Trick, The Dictators, The Ramones, The Stranglers, Ultravox, and Television are just a few of the bands that I first heard of because of my friendship with Jimmy. Imagine being in your teens and having a friend turn you on to just ONE of those bands. Now increase that impact tenfold, or more, and you start to get an idea of the importance of Jimmy's friendship. OK, not every band he turned me on to was super-cool -- he gave me the first couple of Foreigner albums, for instance -- but still, Jimmy had a great ear for cool music that wasn't yet -- or, sometimes, ever -- part of the mainstream.

Fortunately for me -- and for you -- that excitement and passion for discovering and sharing new music was matched by his generosity. Nearly every time I saw him he'd present me with a bag of extra (or rejected) promo records from his WBCN job. (He dropped out of high school, started volunteering on the WBCN "Listener Line," and wound up being the music director when he was barely 18 years old.) Many of the records he gave me back then records remain favorites of mine to this day.

In the summer of 1985, Jimmy learned he had AIDS. A year later he passed away, at the age of 25. As you can see from the obituary that ran in the Boston Globe he was as generous with his time as he was with records. Regrettably I had lost contact with Jimmy by this time, and didn't hear of his passing until a few years later.

In the fall of 2006 I dedicated my first weekly show on the regular WFMU schedule to Jimmy. I wanted to acknowledge his impact on my life, and especially on my own musical tastes. Since then I've dedicated one of the first shows of the WFMU fall schedule to him, since his influence is never too far from what you hear me play on my show. Thanks for taking a moment to read about him, and thanks for listening to WFMU.

Here's to the people that fueled the songs in our heads. I know I owe quite a few of them.

I have described listening to WFMU as being like always having one of those friends around that has an amazing record to play you that you've never heard that blows you away.

Here's to Jimmy Mack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Jimmy had pretty good taste. Nice that we're able to share in his memory. Thanks for having this tribute each year.

RIP Gary Richrath sic?! Cheers Evan!!!
  9:27pm clinton hensley:

I had a record store clerk (turned into great friend of 29 years) turn me on to that very Kraftwerk track - another Jimmy. :) He saw me keep picking up the Pixies "Doolittle" album in '89 and then put it down over and over - I couldn't get an accurate read on what I was reading about them in Thrasher Magazine and what I was hearing from their single "Here comes Your Man." One day he'd had enough and shouted out, "Just get it!!! It's good." Friends ever since. :)

OMG, FFS is playing Terminal 5 here in NY on 10/6!
I gotta start paying more attention to the important things...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Gaylord Fields:

@efd: What a lovely tribute to a friend who gave you something enduring: an appreciation of music not as some secret handshake to the Cool Club but as something that transcends uniforms and cliques and such artificial barriers. He taught you to trust your ears — and the results of his tutelage are on display every Wednesday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

This show makes me feel like the times I've played friends' mix tapes for other friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

whoa, that is breaking news!

(actually someone on Twitter just mentioned she was looking forward to their NYC show, but I didn't know where/when it was.)
  9:52pm clinton hensley:

Great show, E! Glad I was able to tune in. This show is reminding me of how much of an education it was to go into a record store, looking over your shoulder to see if the clerk was scoffing at what you picked up in curiosity or giving you that look of approval. Ha! My greatest head-nods came from picking up Bad Brains s/t cassette on ROIR and Black Flag's "First Four Years." :) Great times. Thanks for jogging those memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I am literally taking a weekend off school, taking a 5-hour bus trip from Ithaca to NYC and then another bus trip down to Philly and staying at my cousin's house to see FFS. I am a dedicated Sparks fan, guys. That said after all that they better be bloody good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

Pete, that comment makes me so happy because that's pretty much exactly the feeling I'm going for.

Gaylord, that's very sweet of you to say that. You made me tear up again (the first time was during "Roll With The Changes").
  9:54pm P-90:

Mr. Fields do know how to pen a sweet testimonial, don't he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I took the train to Lowell on Sunday, and the record store was closed. Now I feel like I should go back because I probably missed some opportunity to have the clerk nudge me toward something important.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

You're welcome, EFD, and on some level, as I said, it's kind of what this station (and really, all DJ-driven stations) is about for me. Just that this time it's all passed along from one dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Stevel:

Wow, to Brown Spiders!
  9:57pm P-90:

@Bronwyn B: Do you remember when Sparks was on "Midnight Special"? ...Or was it "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Stevel:

Also, Gaylord kicks ass and speaks the truth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Your friend had great taste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@P-90: No because I was 20 years away from being born, but I love that video. It was Don Kirshner's Rock Concert and I was so used to them as little old people in FFS, which is what introduced me to them, that it was a shock to see them as 70s rock stars! I was hooked right from the start of "Something For the Girl With Everything."
  10:00pm Bryan D:

I thought you were calling this band "Warriors"
  10:02pm jon:

evening efd and all. the 70s opening to the show was better than ever tonite. nice tribute
  10:03pm clinton hensley:

My biggest scoff came from picking up the Ornette Coleman Trio's "Golden Circle" sessions. Yeah, trust you ears. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Worriers are playing Worcester, and you get a special jacket that says "awesome" when you play Worcester. Largest city that's north of New York and east of Rochester and west of Boston.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Gaylord Fields:

@efd: Each and every true music lover has had someone in his or her life who showed us what to listen to but, more important, how to listen. Thanks for introducing us to yours.
  10:05pm P-90:

"...litlle old people." Sparks? Really? How did that happen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm efd:

Pete I hope that jacket has a picture of a worm on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Well, I'd never heard of them before the FFS album came out this year. I'm 21, so they weren't exactly on my radar. I thought, "what a cool pair of 60-something gentleman doing an album with Franz Ferdinand, I wonder what they're all about!" And from there I discovered their old stuff and became a fan! (Much more so than I am a fan of Franz Ferdinand, who I merely have mildly pleasant feelings for.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm efd:

@Bronwyn, I love that story! So great that the FFS album led you to go back and discover Sparks' older stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah, I know some older Sparks fans were kind of scoffing at it, but it led me to discover not only Sparks but also that whole era of 70s glam rock in general! Of course I was aware of it but now I love all of it.
  10:11pm clinton hensley:

Nice version.

Oh - annual Jimmy Mack show. & so my annual musing that thru WBCN Boston he must've influenced me too - remotely, growing up here in NewHampshuh trying to pull it in on a c-battery draining radio. & still via efd here. 25 is brutally young - & when I lived in Santa Barbara, AIDS claimed people I knew, & the emotional fallout was very heavy on a few others (one girl's sister fatally succumbing to addiction). So impressive the impact your friend had @ an age one might usually consider not even yet grown up.

Who the Hell WAS Snoopy looking for in Grenoble?
  10:57pm JakeGould:

Snoopy in his guise as the “World Famous Skater” wanted to attend the 1968 Winter Olympics:

”This alter ego is first seen on December 4, 1967, skating by himself before stating that he misses skating with Sonja Henie. Over the next several days, he practices for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, France. Linus van Pelt tries to assist Snoopy by raising money for him while his sister, Lucy, expresses skepticism. When Snoopy leaves for Grenoble on December 16, Charlie Brown angrily blames Linus for encouraging Snoopy by taking up a collection. Snoopy returns home soon after when he realizes that his trek to Grenoble is blocked by an ocean.”

  10:57pm JakeGould:

“Woodstock compliments Snoopy by telling him that he would have won easily at the Grenoble Olympics.”
