Hello Mary Wing!
Hello 100%ers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm crateslinger:

@Rich - I do that all the time.
  12:18pm rw:

Well... I guess it could have been on the radio in 89. The accuplaylist says 89. I'm going with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Rich in Washington:

It's kind of embarrassing, especially if I'm making comments related to the music.
  12:19pm rw:

Rich, we understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Rich in Washington:

Typically, what happens with me, is I'm listening to WFMU streams via an iTunes playlist. If the stream hiccups, it can sometimes skip down to the next stream. It's nutty.
  12:20pm rw:

If that's the most embarrassing thing you do today you're way ahead of me.

Embarrassing? I once had spotify on and commented on Irwin’s show about how cool it was he would play Taylor Swift.

  12:26pm Mark R:

12", not 2" of course! BTW that Wing version of AC/DC is the greatest thing I've ever heard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm crateslinger:

No - I think I stumped him.
  12:29pm rw:

So... will we be having 3oaK today? Keeping it all to '89 seems like a fun challenge.
Avatar 12:29pm Mary Wing:

Heh, Mark, I wondered how you could even play a 2" record?
  12:30pm Mark R:

I'm sensing a 1988/9 theme here. Trying to remember what I was listening to in them days. That "New York" album was one of them, for sure. "Doolittle" by the Pixies, which came out earlier, but I was still listening to it in the late 80s early 90s. I think a lot of good jazz albums came out around then, Tony Williams-type stuff. Larry Coryell. A lot of fusion-y type guys were returning to more straight-ahead jazz and I was digging it. Also, mainstream stuff like INXS believe it or not, I was digging. Oh yes, The The, my god did I love this album!
  12:30pm Mark R:

Oh you could move the needle over, Mary--no biggie. It would be over in like 10 seconds, though!
Avatar 12:31pm Mary Wing:

No, rw, 3oak will be on hiatus until after the marathon; got to focus on fundraising!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm crateslinger:

In 1989 I was working at Planet Records in Boston and listening to the Crucifucks and the Colors Soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thirty years ago, "Lost In Your Eyes" by Debbie Gibson was number one. Neat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm crateslinger:

Also I think BDP’s My Philosophy came out round that time.
  12:36pm Mark R:

Oh hello--if I'd just read the darn synopsis at the top of the playlist I would see that the theme I'm "sensing" has been totally spelled out by the disc jockey individual. I always talk first, read later!
  12:36pm rw:

I don't remember '89. I was just out of grad school and going through major crisis. So far I've only recognized the Siouxsie and the Stone Roses tracks.
  12:38pm Mark R:

Seriously, I think if I went through my CD collection, the year 1989 would be well-represented. I was just starting to work at grown-up jobs but did not yet have children draining away all my music money, so I was probably adding about 50 albums a year to my collection. "Let Love Rule" was another one. Lenny's later stuff put a lot of people off of him, but I still think "Let Love Rule" is top-notch, start to finish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm crateslinger:

In 1989 I saw Bad Brains and the Cro Mags open for Motorhead at the Channel. Best show I ever saw. Everybody almost died.
Avatar 12:41pm Mary Wing:

How the heck do you remember that it was in 1989, crateslinger? I can remember lots of concerts in the 80s, but not the exact year.
  12:42pm rw:

Actually, not just out of school but finishing school and then back into the real world. Even worse!

crateslinger, I'm jealous.
  12:43pm rw:

And recently married! It's all coming back to me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Rich in Washington:

I've been remembering dates of shows only because I've been tracking down either bootlegs of certain show or flyers from specific shows. It's always surprising to recall the date because they're often much later than I remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm crateslinger:

@Mary - I turned 21 in 1989 and met my wife the following year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm crateslinger:

and I moved around a lot so judging by who I was hanging out with and where I was living - I can pretty much know the year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm crateslinger:

Now that I’ve been in NYC for 30 years, THAT is all jumbled together. I measure the year by how many kids I had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm crateslinger:

Feels like that was the last show I went to!
Avatar 12:46pm Mary Wing:

You've had 30 kids??!?!?!? ;-)
  12:47pm rw:

I'm terrible with remembering specific years. Sometime between the mid '90s and now I had at least two children.
  12:53pm Mark R:

Mary, you're proving my long-held belief, that in spite of people's opinions that music of this era or that era was "lousy," it only reflects what they were hearing on mainstream radio, and that if you pick any year, I could name you 10 or 20 or 30 stone-cold killer records, and you're proving it right here!
Avatar 12:55pm Mary Wing:

Thanks, Mark, let's hope my premium can also prove it!
  12:55pm Mark R:

Ha, to show you what a square I was, I liked Bonnie Raitt's stuff from this era, too!
  12:56pm Mark R:

I saw Jane Siberry around this time, too! At St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, where that awful-sounding Morphine live album was recorded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Carmichael:

Big Siberry fan here too. Saw her at Harlow's in Sacramento, a small intimate theatre.
  1:06pm rw:

Late for work. Will be taking the crazy boat ride down the long slow freeway. Thanks Mary! Take care all!

I remember thinking it was really cool when they used "She Drives Me Crazy" on an episode of "thirtysomething"!

This was 89?? I’d have guessed much earlier

Oh god, thirtysomething! I should watch that show again, heh.

Yikes, I'd hate to tell you how old I was in '89.

1989 was merely twenty years after Woodstock.

  1:43pm ike:

Eek! This song plays a lot different to modern ears than it did back in the day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Rich in Washington:

In 1989, I found myself working on an assembly line in a sweatshop. The guy up the line from me was this obnoxious illiterate hillbilly dude who jibber jabbered constantly. When this song came out, he would use the phrase Funky Cold Medina for everything. I have no idea why. I think he thought it made him hipper, or something. The whole place was full of these goofuses who were freeze dried in the late 70s, with feathered hairdos, 70s looking clothes and everything.

From this era: One time I was in the video arcade in a hotel playing Donkey Kong or something, and some BAD KIDS came in playing 2 Live Crew on a boombox LOUD. I didn’t say anything but I was kinda scandalized.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Rich in Washington:

This is a fun set, Mary! I have blacked out huge chunks of 1989, so this is quite a blast for me.
  1:50pm Mark R:

I have a hunch thirtysomething would not stand the test of time. There's a reason why it never shows up on TVLand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Parq:

I was still kind of paying attention to this stuff in '89. My kid was born in '90. Like all new parents, I lost all contact with pop culture for a couple of years, and somehow never got back around to mainstream music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Rich in Washington:

1989 I had just married and became a father. My wife and I had vastly divergent musical tastes (in that I had some - snark!), so music and I had a weird relationship for years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Carmichael:

When my kids were born, I got seriously into The Wiggles.

Avatar 1:53pm david w:

Well, ain't this somethin'!!! Hello Mary and all!
  1:53pm ike:

@Mark, I never watched that, but was it serialized? Serialized stuff gets terrible rerun ratings so that might be why. Or maybe it has aged badly, who knows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Rich in Washington:

When my kids were a bit older, we got into They Might Be Giants. My sons also really loved the sped up voices in The Mothers' We're Only In It For The Money.
  1:55pm ike:

I liked ALF back then and that’s pretty much one of the worst shows ever made. Also, Night Court, which isn’t so bad, but very very silly.

Wasn't it around this time that Danzig happened? That was a surreal moment. I never thought I'd live to see someone from The Misfits become somewhat mainstream. Maybe trivial now, but was pretty strange BitD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Rich in Washington:

Ah. Danzig was 1988. Also, Living Colour's Vivid, which I thought might be '89. See? My recall of '89 is totally off.

we had a cell phone in 1989 but it took up the entire basement

Yes, they existed in '89. The first time I remember seeing a car phone was in '79 but that one couldn't leave the car.

Avatar 2:29pm Mary Wing:

Ah yes, the phone built into the car; because why should you only concentrate on driving?
Avatar 2:30pm Roberto:

You had to pull over to use it. You also had to dial a mobile operator to make the calls for you.
Avatar 2:32pm Mary Wing:

Avatar 2:33pm Roberto:

I had a shortwave radio that picked up mobile calls. Sadly, the most exciting call I ever intercepted was some guy calling a shoe store looking for alligator boots or something.
