Whip-Smart went with me and futurewife on our trip to Puerto Rico in '94. Tape deck in the car, who remembers?

Hello all, again
Avatar 10:08pm Roberto:

Aww major bummer about Peggy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Roberto sadly, I remember 8-tracks. Loved it when they clicked over mid song.
  10:09pm Carmichael:

Heya Samantha. RIP Mod Squad gal.

Avatar 10:10pm Roberto:

Phillippe, it's always reassuring to know some people still exist who are older than I.
  10:13pm pp:

She could sing. Wasn't quite Babs but thought it was Laura.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Roberto yeah, I'm kinda old. I'm at that age where they don't bother making funny birthday cards for anymore.
  10:18pm Carmichael:

Richard Thompson is my guitar idol.
Avatar 10:18pm Roberto:

Good to know. I find the older I get, the more people there are who are younger and the fewer there are who are older. Funny how that works.
Avatar 10:19pm Roberto:

Tacocat will probably never top that song about the psychic death cat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Listener John from NJ:

@Phillippe Bastille: Just because you remember 8-tracks doesn't mean you're old.
  10:23pm John from Florham Park:

@Roberto I have found since I hit the big 50 5 years ago I have become far less tolerant of commercial radio and the same bullshit I hear all day long and the djs having no personality, that is why I am listening more and more to stations like this
Avatar 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

shit i hadn't heard Peggy L checked out.
prettiest narc i ever saw
Avatar 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

...yeah she could sing

Hello, Therese and Woof Moo crew.
  10:27pm John from Florham Park:

@KFHP evening to you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Phillippe Bastille:

@John from NJ True, but not in my case. I'm old. They actually needed to make a new US flag in my lifetime.
  10:28pm Carmichael:

I’m apparently older than all you folks. But this is still the place to be.
  10:28pm John from Florham Park:

@Phillipe you must be in your 60s now
  10:29pm sugarwolf:

I thought this sounded like Patty Pravo. I need Bellisima
Avatar 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

Roberto i had (have) whip-smart on cassette too, as well as a "cassingle" (one of the most wasteful formats ever to exist, i suppose) of supernova, with maybe her least "commercial" track ever in the b side. (i forget the name of it though)
  10:30pm John from Florham Park:

@Carmichael damn straight about that don’t have a bad word to see about any djs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Tome:

Hello Therese and everyone ,,, oh my mom loved the 60's shePop indeed !<>! maybe not as much as ie.. Tom Jones but ahhhh !><!

I love YOU, Therese! And all you beautiful WFMU listeners. Hi! I think Tacocat is originally from the weird little town i came from, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Carmichael had the dash gramaphone in your Duesenberg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

And Phillippe, glad you enjoyed some actual spicy tuna (catching up with comments from the last board)
Avatar 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

i grew up while cassettes were quickly becoming popular, but 8-tracks still were widely sold. i still have my 8-track tapes
Avatar 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

rest in peace Miss Lipton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Granny. It was pretty decent...
  10:34pm John from Florham Park:

Love you Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Tome:

being the audio snob I was back then I was anti 8 track ,, think they were intended more for the care ie,, random access , sort of []
  10:34pm Sally:

Tell her you're grateful she let you be a parasite in her body haha
Avatar 10:34pm Roberto:

Sorry to be a stickler, Therese, but not all mothers did that for their kids. In my case, I was adopted but my adoptive mother is the only mother I've ever known.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, John. Winding down on a Sunday night.
Avatar 10:36pm coelacanth∅:

8-tracks were (like the 4-tracks that preceded them) developed for use in automobiles.
  10:37pm John from Florham Park:

@Ken me too going to set the timer while I drift off to sleep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Phillippe Bastille:

I remember the tee shirt shops on the OC MD boardwalk selling bootleg 8 tracks right out in the open. Snagged a Procal Harem and a shirt with a Chevelle with flames coming out of it on the back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Therese:

@Roberto- you are absolutely correct. I didn't mean to exclude adoptive mothers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Phillippe Bastille:

Day-um, this GoG is perfection!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Tome:

man some of the stuff i had on cassette which I would so willingly share with this station and all live stuff etc... could never be replaced despite the low fi almost non existent hi end ,, my mid 90's move and meltdown ,, just trashed em all ,,((( --
Avatar 10:40pm Roberto:

No prob, Therese! Sorry to get all righteous up in there.
  10:42pm katharsis:

Loving the show Therese
Avatar 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

in the late 70s i asked for a cassette deck for xmas- ready to start building a component hi-fi and i considered that the first step (i already had a shitty amp i could use it with) but my parents as usual didn't listen or have faith in me or whatever and gave me a compact stereo system (capehart brand) that had no cassette but an 8-track player/recorder. (which i was to figure out ran a bit slow)
it turned out to be a blessing because i soon started fucking with it and cracking open the tapes to make shorter loops and wiring it back into itself (for a "frippertronics" kind of effect) etc
still use 8-tracks to this day for recording weird crap.
Avatar 10:47pm coelacanth∅:

wow. long post of no significance.

Avatar 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

what Ken? the hysterical records?!
Avatar 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

oh, well Thanks!
Avatar 10:50pm Roberto:

Next thing we know you'll be posting about your boiler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Phillippe Bastille:

Damn, Therese, this show is off the charts great tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

as somebody who has been chided for oversharing on these boards i feel i have the authority to tell you, coelacanth∅, that your story was quite enjoyable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey, you can get some good furnace advice on here (thank you, Dale)
Avatar 10:52pm coelacanth∅:

no but i might post about a boiler maker
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

some programs are known for inspiring the sharing of great recipes (i think i always see food discussions on Transpacific Sound Paradise)
Avatar 10:53pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks, Spicy.
Avatar 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

sometimes Blumin's comments blow up with food talk -which is sometimes odd when his musical selections are so ...out-of-body?
Avatar 10:57pm tak:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Phillippe Bastille:

I've been around for some of the Funyums discussions, but I don't think that's where you're headed on this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Therese:

Everybody's gotta eat, @coelacanth
Avatar 11:00pm coelacanth∅:

(thank goodness for punctuation)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

coelacanth∅: maybe Blumin's listeners are trying to ground themselves by discussing food?
  11:02pm Carmichael:

@coel, the first thing I’d usually do is take stuff apart. Always ended up with a few extra parts!
Avatar 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

haha Granny, good point!
Avatar 11:07pm coelacanth∅:

Carm, me too but i had to wait a while if my parents bought it. i think i waited a year or 2 to experiment with the capehart; but the first time an 8-track tape failed i broke it open to fix it and there was a revelation in the looping department!
Avatar 11:07pm Roberto:

You take 'em both, and there you have....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

So what Therese is really saying is cancel all of our plans and listen to WFMU all the time. OK! I'm all for it. YES!
  11:11pm Carmichael:

I worked in radio when commercials were all on cassette. I have lots of splicing experience.
Avatar 11:11pm Roberto:

Bless ye!
Avatar 11:12pm Roberto:

Speaking of the other Maude, I had a dream recently that Bea Arthur was speaking to me from beyond the grave. Incidentally, she was an adoptive mother as well.
  11:13pm Carmichael:

Say tacocat backwards.

Kurt on tuesdays is going to be every week for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

So there's a fill-in sandwich around this show next week, huh?
Avatar 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

Carmichael, i just did but something went wrong. it didn't come out backwards
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Phillippe Bastille:

How come palindrome isn't a palindrome? Opportunity missed, I believe
Avatar 11:22pm Roberto:

While I didn't know Bea personally, I did know her TV husband, Bill Macy.
Avatar 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

Phillippe agreed. somebody screwed up.
