guy takes boat to island where his gal is. he takes her in his arms and says he will never leave. i guess the corruption is that he is probably lying?
  11:11am Daybreak and I’m up! I’m up!:

Your mentioning of:
2 hrs of #1 hit music reminds me...
Put together with yesterday,
You are giving us 5 hours of
#1 hits!
Given you usually have a week to dig up 2 hrs of Michael approved tunes, what was that like?
Was Juniper cheering encouragingly or teasing relentlessly?!?

Honestly - exhilaration! When I picked Juniper up at school yesterday, first question: how was the morning show?

They didn't let the whole school listen? The way they used to let us watch Space Shuttle launches?
  11:16am Mark from Columbus:

Thanks for the Louie Louie original which I didn’t know existed. That song along with Little Black Egg and Wipeout are the first tunes my garage band rehearsed back in 1966. So yeah, that’s the Genesis of rock n roll.
  11:17am clarke:

NOT the original - that would be Richard Berry

@Handy Haversack – thanks for the info, want to join the Swag for Life anyway! Just still have to find out how to exactly choose which premium (I guess this is one then) I get when pledging ... I'd like to split my pledge to different shows. Will (hopefully) figure this out!
Avatar 11:39am Michael Shelley:

site says "Wake Travel Chug Mug" - not sure if thats the same one pictured
  11:39am clarke:

there is a way to mention up to 5 different shows for your pledge!!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:41am Listener Baby:

People are going to die. every one of those radios need full blown capacitor changes, resistor replacements, and such. It's deadly in there. Hate to be a buzz kill, but buy a nice amp. That said, I'll have a look. Hee hee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am zivilars:

@clarke – yeah, if choosing 10$ a month on the WFMU pledge site, I can choose up to 12 shows (one for ever 10$) and will get 1 DJ premium – but it doesn't specify from which one it will be and you there's no choosing option. But whatever, I'll figure this out. Thanks again for the info!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:42am Handy Haversack:

@zivilars: As I recall, you can add one show for each $10 pledged? And spread your support around. We were trying to figure it out, and Kate kept saying, "And [this show]! And [this show]!" Eventually, "We just love too much."

So, you know, the process is fraught. One ends up doing a lot of self-reflection!
Avatar 11:42am Michael Shelley:

WHAT if folks only use DC?
  11:42am clarke:

yeah - some of those old voltage things still have a charge when unplugged, right??
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:43am Handy Haversack:

@Michael, you mean like how (NJ's own) Edison wanted us to have massive battery stations lining every road in the country?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am zivilars:

@Handy: Yeah, got the same problem – already did a one time pledge for two show, then another one for a third one and now for two others ... they just all deserve it! :)
  11:44am clarke:

edison will get his wish soon...
Avatar 11:44am Michael Shelley:

Under "DJ Premium" you have to check the box, then go to the premium menu & pick what you want... or call in when it's live, and do it through the mail...

When I was in grade school, they would sit us in front of a TV in the hall so everyone could watch Canada vs. Russia hockey games. '76 series, I guess?

One has to use AC to get to DC. The beginning and middle of the power supply is the scary part. I've gotten whacked. No fun.

John Popper of Blues Traveler has one of those crazy military style harp vests - say what you want about harp players, that dude can blow - saw him once back in early 90s at a one-off show in TO co-opening with Pearl jam for Neil Young (w/ Booker T & the MGs) - the whole spectacle was superb - watching Popper seamlessly switch between harps druing his extended jam riffs was mesmerizing...
  #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

My neighbour down the street is from Cuba and on a Friday night in summer he'll drink a few beers and play loud Cuban music and I'll sit on my porch under my lights, drinking beer and listening in. At this point, that's probably better than going to a concert.

  12:09pm clarke:

those studio monitor speakers aren't CRANKED are they MS??
  12:10pm Sean:

I think Popper has even more guns and ammo to put in those than harmonicas. He is a serious gun "lover"

@Handy My nieghbour regularly canoes across the Ottawa river to a city-owned island where he has built a summer camp for himself. I've been over a couple times and it is amazing, so if you, yourself, ever get up this way, hit me up and I'll arrange a visit.

Dang, Michael, say the word! (Once it's warm!) Last summer or the one before, I was trying to organize a paddling day for WFMU DJs and volunteers -- I can go back to that effort! But also available to take you and a smaller group out whenever you want!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Handy Haversack:

@GiO: You better believe I will!

@Michael: Kate and I are coming down to volunteer during Todd's show 3/14. Maybe we can chat about canoeing chances then.

Handy - that does sound amazing! Urban canoeing in NYC - WOW! And GIO - that also sounds amazing! Assuming I won't get scoffed at for bringing my kayak (as opposed to canoe) ;P

Love this Bangles album, and tune. I'm still waiting for the Go-Go/Bangles co-headlining tour. They've played on each other's albums & written songs together (& Vicki filled in for Charlotte on a Go-Gos tour once) so I keep thinking it's going to happen. And the Bangles now have their original bass player back (who's on the first EP).

@ Handy & @GIO - I am looking at purchasing a few acres w/ cabin on the river on a north-south route that takes you up to North Bay, just outside the western gate of Algonquin Park - has some small outbuildings I was dreaming of converting into bunkies and setting up a kind of way station for paddlers, trekkers, et al - keep you posted if I manage to pull it all together...
  12:38pm DG:

Sorry, that last Bangles comment was mine, forgot to add my moniker.
  #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

A Spinning Giant Please do. For real.

DG - there was a bangles/gogo's co-bill in prob-ably 2003 or 4?? pre-katrina fo'sho.
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Handy Haversack:

@Spinning Giant, that sounds SO lovely. Please do keep us posted! I have a lot of Canada exploring in my future, I fervently hope.

And the offer in NYC stands: just let me know!

@DJ Guin: That's remarkably close!
  12:41pm Ashok Mudholkar:

Great show and that Spanish Perfume in particular was a treat. For what it's worth, I think details about which toms are part of the Bangles sound is good and interesting info. I like learning details of the making of art.

Gonna say thanks now, Michael: great show! Good chatting with you all, and looking forward to warmer waters! Gotta devote all bandwidth to registering for some games for the next 20 mins. ...

Isn't Jill the same gal who had a couple lines on Surf Route 101?

Late to chime in on account of a more challenging than usual 5 month old, but thanks for the show! Made the challenging parenting more enjoyable!
