So is it just songs about radio DJs or club DJs? Or both?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

I always found it odd that the flip of this has the sound effects on it. I guess it would allow a dj to play with them on a second turntable.

Sounds like the original rap music song. Haha.
Avatar 10:19pm Erica:

You know, before rap even existed.
  10:19pm Dean:

Real Don Steele had a TV show in LA (elsewhere, too, maybe?) on which I remember seeing a band, Angel's Damnation. Or am I misremembering?
  10:23pm Dean:

Respecting the matter of memory of these virtual media, AM and FM included, see Cliff Lynch's marvelous Stewardship in the 'Age of Algorithms'. To preserve the record, we need a concerted effort.

Some of these guys hosted dance party shows, main among them Jerry Blavat in Philadelphia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Dean! I bookmarked that
Avatar 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

am radio memory: when spill the wine was a big hit i was a wee lad and toward the end Eric Burden of course says
spillthewine spillthewine spillthewine etc.
and little me heard it as diddiwack diddiwack etc.
- don't know where i got that from but once at the end of that song the dj on wabc started going "diddiwack diddiwack diddiwack..."!
Avatar 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

...i wonder if anyone else who heard that remembers it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

Any memory of who the DJ was?
Avatar 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

no. if i could each wabc dj voice side by side i might be able to
Avatar 10:29pm Jeff Ash:

Knew we'd be hearing from King Coleman!
  10:29pm Dean:

Ha, coel! I was a young 'un, too, at the time. I adored the song and only recently acquired a copy of it. I heard, "spiddiwa, spiddiwa, spiddiwa..."
Avatar 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

..."could HEAR..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

I ask because WABC was my first Top 40 station, too. Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie, Harry Harrison, Chuck Leonard etc

@Jeff - Couldn't do it without him!
Avatar 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

Today is, in a weird coincidence, the 10th anniversary of Soupy's death
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm doctorjazz:

Soupy Sales, yet to watch his show, fun song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm doctorjazz:

Used to watch, that is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

@C - Yes to both of them, especially "DAAAAAAN INGRAM" followed by the chime!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm doctorjazz:

Used to drive me nuts too.
Avatar 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

we liked the Soupy Sales show - sometimes (like when he did the soupy shuffle)
my mother objected to him and discouraged us, but didn't forbid watching it.

Larry yes!! right in the middle of "hitchin' a ride"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm JtotheK:

Maggie Thrett. yay! Also, I enjoyed SheilaB's story about this 45 - she spun it out ... and she was complimented by a member of the audience who was singing along ... only to find out it was a member of De La Soul (who had sampled the 45 on the 3 Feet High and Rising album).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

I was completely unaware that channel existed Larry.
  10:40pm Dean:

White Fang gave me nightmares.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

@JtotheK - That's why the 45 is so expensive
Avatar 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

one time one of them went crazy with it. did it twice. my older sister and i were like what the heck?
then again! -then at least 2 more times!
we were cracking up by then!
  10:44pm Dean:

Tonight's theme reminds me of a song written by a talented friend of mine, John Feodorov, whose song "My Favorite Song" was titled precisely to require DJs who spun it to announce that each had just played "my favorite song." Thus, while it wasn't strictly about DJs, it was intended to engage them semantically.
Avatar 10:45pm Erica:

Good goes around and around. Wrong song I know. Haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - That sounds cool. I'll bet there are a lot of similar songs on the same tip.
  10:48pm Dean:

Of course, and then there's the wild assumption that any DJ would play the tune in the first place. But it was, in fact, very good.
Avatar 10:48pm Erica:

That DOES sound like a cool idea Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Funky16Corners:

This is - believe it or not - the original version of this song
Avatar 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

really? before Peggy Lee?
Avatar 10:51pm Erica:

Then why didn't his version become the hit Larry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

This and Leslie Uggams both predate Peggy Lee
  10:51pm Dean:

"Original" is fairly ambiguous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Because Peggy Lee's version is subime perfection and this is goofy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - Not at all. The first recording.
Avatar 10:52pm Erica:

Ha! When I hear the name Leslie Uggams, I think of that Simpsons episode where Marge and Homer met at camp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

Larry your assertion is partially true. It’s the first recorded version but it was performed on TV by Georgia Brown the year before.
Avatar 10:52pm coelacanth∅:

haha exactly!
PJ Harvey's is also sublime.
Avatar 10:52pm still b/p:

This one didn't have a chance at charting, apparently:
"this was an unauthorized recording that, while played on Daniels' own radio show, went unissued at the songwriters' request."
Avatar 10:53pm Erica:

Goofy isn't the word Larry, psychotic is more like it. Haha!
Avatar 10:53pm coelacanth∅:

i can't fault Leiber and Stoller for that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm doctorjazz:

I didn't know about that channel either, sorta curious to check our the Soupy Sales shows, but I suspect they are the kind of thing best left to distant memory.
Avatar 10:54pm Erica:

The laughing at the end reminds me of "They're coming to take me away".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Funky16Corners:

@SBP - It was released in white label promo (the one I have)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm WR:

Two minor points, first "released" recording. Also other stations were very unlikely to play something featuring talent from a competitor unless it became a hit. And hi all, listening while doing household chores.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Funky16Corners:

Hey WR!
Avatar 10:56pm Erica:

Ooh yes, Jerry Blavat. Surprised he sang bubblegum pop. Was hoping for something like rock n roll.
Avatar 10:56pm coelacanth∅:

hello again WR!
Avatar 10:58pm Erica:

Meanwhile in the UK...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I played Blavat's soul raver on last week's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm WR:

And having grown up in Texas/ Louisiana I am wondering what other gems from the south you may have besides John R and E Rodney that you've played.
Avatar 11:01pm Jeff Ash:

I just thought of an obscure Gerry Rafferty cut that would be appropriate for this show.
Avatar 11:01pm Erica:

I don't remember that Larry, sadly. But the song Tasty should be on bubblegum compilations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - Which song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

@WR - The next cut and a couple of Atlanta guys in the last set
Avatar 11:03pm Jeff Ash:

"Welcome to Hollywood" from his 1980 LP "Snakes and Ladders."

Hey it's Wolfman Jack!

I'll check it out
Avatar 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

i remember this one
Avatar 11:04pm Jeff Ash:

DJ part of that Gerry Rafferty song comes near the end.
Avatar 11:07pm Jeff Ash:

The Guess Who had pretty much jumped the shark by this point.
Avatar 11:07pm Erica:

This song sounds familiar...I think I heard I heard it on a Halloween compilation before. Funny because I thought this song was about a werewolf when I heard it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Funky16Corners:

This was a pretty big hit
Avatar 11:08pm Jeff Ash:

Oh, yeah. 1974 was a strange time.
Avatar 11:09pm Erica:

Or was that The Guess Who's version of "Shakin' All Over"? I know I heard "Clap for the Wolfman" before though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - I think most of the country was high
Avatar 11:09pm coelacanth∅:

my older sister liked Wolfman Jack. he must've joined wabc at some point, or wnbc maybe... i don't know where else she would've known him from.
Avatar 11:10pm Erica:

Now THIS song, I like. WOLD was the inspiration for the theme for WKRP in Cincinnati as well as the sitcom itself.
  11:10pm rw:

Yo. Any songs by F16 tonight?
  11:10pm Dean:

Hmm, we might hear the theme song from WKRP in Cincinnati...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Funky16Corners:

@C - The Wolfman ws on WNBC in NY in the early 80s. I used to work overnights in a newspaper composing room and he was on all night
  11:11pm Dean:

Jinx, Erica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Funky16Corners:

@rw - I wouldn't think to include myself in such august company
Avatar 11:11pm Jeff Ash:

"WOLD" was one of the late-night free-form FM radio staples back then.

no, my sister liked the wolfman sometime between the late 60s and mid-70s. i barely knew her by the 80s.
was he syndicated or something maybe?

  11:16pm Dean:

Yes...but what happens?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

He even did a record with Todd Rundgren the same year as the Guess Who record
  11:16pm rw:

We were wondering at work the other day if the Ks and Ws had any meaning other than regional designation. I mean, does the K stand for somehting?
Avatar 11:16pm Erica:

@Dean Nobody knows.
  11:21pm Dean:

That's hella for sure, though eventually somebody might know. I'm interested in the literature addressing causality, which gets to this issue.

A student at my son's middle school saw me yesterday at school wearing a WFMU t-shirt. She remarked upon it favorably. I took the opportunity to explain that the letters were call letters to identify the station.

Sales died ten years ago yesterday, so reports Wikipedia.
Avatar 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

Larry i just read that Wolfman Jack was on wnbc starting in 1973, as well as occasionally hosting the midnight special. i would've known him from the midnight special but my sister probably knew him from wnbc as well.
he also did armed forces radio which was syndicated and widely distributed (as one would assume)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm doctorjazz:

My daughter's boyfriend was amazed when he saw SOMEONE ELSE in an FMU tee...he thought I was the only person around that listened to it (I assured him at least the 10 folks who post here listen...)

Two kids have commented on my WFMU t-shirts, and one adult. For the latter, I was walking up California in SF. A guy passing me said, "WFMU, cool!"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Funky16Corners:

I give all my WFMU shirts to my youngest son. I'm sure nobody in the 7th grade has any idea what they mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm doctorjazz:

That Same daughter "liberated" my Woof Moo sweatshirt (the dog and the cow). She doesn't listen, but just loved the jacket (do kids listen to radio? Mine just listen to Spotify on their phones for music).
Avatar 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

i get comments all the time. rarely from kids but often from people probably in their 20s.
...if you were looking for me in my town and the person was local but didn't know me by name you could just say "the guy who wears all the wfmu tshirts"

Covered? Photo please.

Philadelphia's big soul station in the 1960s

Maybe it was F Me Up. The guy was kind of mumbling trying to figure it out.
Avatar 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

i still remember tuning in to wfmu a few years ago when i got home 3 am and the homepage had a picture of an overturned car on the side of a highway with a wfmu bumper sticker on it.
then Matt Warwick wasn't on and Pat Byrne was filling in, said that was his car and him standing next to it.

  11:56pm rw:

Coel, I remember that! Only semi-related and completely irrelevant, as a kid I was driving a dump truck down the fwy and saw an overturned dump truck on the other side. Thought to myself, "That looks like Kent's truck. The nice new one that everybody wants to drive". Of course it WAS Kent's nice truck. Load spread out all over the place causing a traffic jam.
