one cannibal looks at another and says "I dont really like my mother-in-law" and the other says "that's ok, just eat your vegetables"

I'm embarrassed to admit I remembered this song (and the artist) just from the first few notes before the vocals kicked in

Have not heard the cannibals song in quite a while.

man i can't believe i thought the playlist was manually coded in html.. I really thought that!
  9:35pm BH:

it's a little cruel to make the HTML guy stick around 24/7 to type the HTML for each playlist as it comes in.. but sometimes you have to sacrifice
  9:35pm Joshua:

Gold Mountain records was the label of one Danny Goldberg
  9:36pm Figgsrock:

Gold Mountain was run by Danny Goldberg, and the artist whose music we played the most in my 80s radio days on that label was Bruce Cockburn.

I'm into this nerdy appreciation for being the first before auto-complete.

Don’t forget “I Was Made For Dancing” from Mr. Garrett!

Leif Garrett was the Justin Beiber of the 1970s and is now the Axl Rose of the 2010s. www.gstatic.com...

Am I wrong for remembering that Leif Garrett played a bratty kid/star on an episode of CHiPS?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm efd:

that seems extremely likely, medson

Leif Garret was a young son in the 1970's "Walking Tall".

It's Shaun Cassidy, not Sean. I am both proud and embarrassed that I knew that.

There's a whole lot of things you can search at WFMU that don't even show up on YouTube..!... and a whole lot more if you kept track from the past!!!!...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm dinatekno:

Leif Garrett was THE #1 pinup in Tiger Beat and 16 magazines for years before Shaun Cassidy hit the scene. I know - I still have most of my memorabilia - and I am NOT embarrassed to say that. LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Aitch:

But Shaun Cassidy was the poor-mans David Cassidy...

I showed my wife that pic. Her first guess was Axel Rose and when I told her it was LG, she was broken-hearted. I have finally killed her first love. Thank you Jake Gould @9:37.

@crateslinger: Your welcome. I will now literally do a search for Kristy McNichol after I log out to bring balance to the 1970s teen crush universe… Wait I did it. She just aged graceful. Leif Garrett and Mason Reese are part of a club.

@Figgs I only really knew that one song that was on the radio later in the 80s.. "Should She Cry" or whatever it was called...?
  11:43pm TheNewLexGofer:

"Please Kill Me: An Uncensored Oral History of Punk," by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain, has a lot of tasty Danny Fields stuff in it. Great read, if you're in the mood...
  11:45pm Figgsrock:

@efd Yeah, that was on the self-titled album from 1990. Was a definite alt/college chart hit at the time. My college station played the hell out of “Should She Cry.”
