The Downliners Sect has always struck me as a band name that should have been on Chiswick in 1978.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Jeezy:

Mono-ness aside, Gaylord & Matt, will everything absolutely be on 45 only? Suzie Hotrod's show was a hilarious bunch of "cheating" where she played digital version of singles she WISHED she owned, haha...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Matt Clarke:

Everything is on 45rpm from our respective collections! All originals, no repros!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@Jeezy: Everything is from an original single, but all have been digitized because this is not a live show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Matt Clarke:

So you'll probably hear bacon frying on some of these slabs o' wax
Avatar 8:15pm Bergey:

Mono packs a bigger punch imo

I forget whether i've already told you this Gaylord, but I've been listening to the archives and I came across your advice for new DJ's appearance on 7 second delay and I've been thinking about what you said ever since. Made me feel much more secure about my show, thank you!

"That's What I Want"...one of the more oft-recorded songs that was never a hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@WR: Thanks! It's a result of a conversation here on the playlist between Gaylord and me from a few weeks ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Matt Clarke:

I would think so, ChasG, since they were Ireland. But not 100 percent sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Gaylord Fields:

If you’re enjoying this throwdown, I’ll be involved with another one of a more competitive nature this Friday. Uncle Michael and I will be facing off, with us defending the hits of 1971 vs. 1972, respectively, and Therese will be the wise and impartial judge. www.wfmu.org...

@Todd: I want it to be a hit
  Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Joe:

Such a great show, thanks Gaylord & Matt! Expecting I’ll be poring over the playlist tomorrow and digging deeper where I can...

@Todd-o-phonic Todd: And inexpliciably so, too. And heaven knows it's not the first great song to bomb despite there being so many worthy versions.

Wow, Gaylord...that sure sounds like a fun time!

@Matt Thanks

@Matt: Summer holiday? Look out, Cliff! haha
  9:11pm Dean:

My simple point was that I understand English. You know, the language we speak here in the United States of America. I can't decipher what those weird Europeans are saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt Clarke: Ha! Is that Hank B. on lead vox? He certainly was a decent singer.

I can pretty much guarantee that, 126464.

I love this filthy hippie music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm hypothete:

This one sounds noticeably more modern? Kind of a shock coming out of the last song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: This is decidedly pre-hippie music. Nice boys wearing nice suits, to be precise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm chresti:

They're all smoking cigarettes, though.
  9:22pm Dean:

"Prog-Off" seems redundant. Like "Virtuoso-off." Wasn't that (for some, not all) the point?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm WR:

Went to favorite the Kinks tune and saw Matt favorited it already and i was wondering why he favorited something he was playing and then realized he favorited it when it was played on Big Planet Noise in July of 2019.
