How could a person keep track of the songs on a 600 song CD???... I like to keep my playlists down to at most 100 songs...
  6:55pm Dean:

Wow, RRNov63, I never considered that it was a real shop. I myself visited the Mountain Grill in London, the source of the Hawkwind album title.

Last Wednesday, Station Manager Ken replayed his Institutionalized show from 2017. It was fun to hear your rendition of the song, Therese. Also the ones from amEdeo, Stashu, Scott, Belinda, etc., as well.
  7:45pm phat:

there's definitely a pride element to today's show and I'm here for it.
  7:46pm Carmichael:

@Handy, cerveza. Mucho.
  7:47pm Dave Miss:

Great set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm McGroovey:

When this Ex Hex album came out, I bought it. Whenever I listen to it, when song #2 starts, I flip back to Tough Enough and listen to it again, and then just put it on repeat until I get sick of it, which is never. I only hit stop when I have to stop listening to music. I've haven't actually listened to whole album, except when I've been too busy to hit repeat on track #1, and then I'm too busy to pay attention, so I've never really listened to the rest of the album.

Maybe WFMU needs a Tough Enough stream that just plays Tough Enough on repeat forever.
  7:52pm Andres:

Great show tonight! Thank you, Therese. Missed the Priest while watering the garden so look forward to it next time.

I have to admit I do get into the mood of needing music to eat into my brain like an unwanted worm!!!...:)
