I know what I know about Gasolin' almost entirely from your show, UM.

I hear about Wicks from Will Birch's Facebook...which is appropriate and poignant.

I'm not on FB, but I have a friend deeply involved in the, uh, secondary market in not-exactly-authorized recordings.

The Turkey is a really goofy b-side. It sounds even better played at 78.

Shit, everything sounds better at 78.

  Tue. 10/9/18 10:15pm Dean:

I love actual radio. I have fond memories of Rodney on the ROQ, the prog show on CSU Long Beach's radio station, and a weird Christian talk show featuring a Brother Paul in the LA area during the '80s. His theme song was Loggins & Messina's "Peace of Mind," which is not half bad, in retrospect.
  Tue. 10/9/18 10:23pm rw:

Hey Grandma. Hey Mike Sin. Hey everyone. Is this the Moby Grape song about Robitussin? Yes it is!

Just happened to turn on WFMU and look who's here! Lucky Me!!! Hi Mike!!
  Tue. 10/9/18 10:27pm rw:

Not to dwell, but I've been told that Nation of Ulysses has at least three songs about Robitussin.
  Tue. 10/9/18 10:27pm Dean:

You've been told? By whom?
  Tue. 10/9/18 10:28pm rw:

Told by my friend Ernest. He's usually right about these things.

Dean, I can only vouch for one song personally. Could be just a rumor about the other two.

I just pitched in a nominal amount. Folks, please follow suit.

Ah, yes, The Quick. One of LA's finest, if also shortest lived. Yet another album I don't play nearly enough.

All of them. What's weird is that one of my seventh grader kid's teachers went to 800 of them, yet I don't recall ever bumping into her.

Do you think Judas Priest borrowed any of McGear's song? I feel like "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" is in there.

Skyhooks, yep, right up there with The Quick.
