Last night's blackhole bandstand on SiriusXM was a blast! Just tuning in to the teenage wasteland now!
  Sun. 3/24/19 3:08pm Harold Fridkis:

Keep on rockin',bill!
  Sun. 3/24/19 3:11pm Al:

John Hawken was also in the original lineup of Renaissance.

Hi teens! Welcome to our weekly two hours of arrested development. Sounds so good!

Teens? Is anyone listening to this show under 60? I guess 70 is the new teens
  Sun. 3/24/19 3:34pm John from Florham Park:

@fred 55 double nickel

Yup. SpeedLimit.

@revolution depending on where you drive
  Sun. 3/24/19 3:42pm Al:

That Ron Dante record is new? Sounded like Sunshine Pop from the '60's or '70's.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 3:43pm Sid:

Not 60 here just yet. Hell, the host is under 70. For a few months anyway. Teen is definitely a state of mind......

Plastic Section is apparently a mechanical/chemical engineering term: A plastic section modulus is a geometric property for a cross section of an object generally used in materials in which plastic behavior can be observed. Haven't had a chance to use that term since college. Those smart Aussies.

I'm in my 60's but younger than Mr. Kelly.

Dick Dale passed away this week

@Sid - 'modulus of elasticity' is what you were taught
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:10pm SHAKIN885:

Harmonica Lewinski!!!
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:10pm Sid:

Beast, that's right. I'm an EE, so the structural stuff is peripheral knowledge for me. But is that what the Aussie band is referring to or is it slang for a.... tool of some sort, or something? I dunno.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:11pm dale:

my wife said 'harmonica lewinsky? that's my friend ed repard's band!!'
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:11pm dale:

...she was in a little band with him called 'god's pajamas'
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:14pm Sid:

...and one would think there's only one Harmonica Lewinsky. Maybe the Paula Trombones? The Tijuanita Broaddrick Brass?
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:15pm Al:

John Hawken and Jim McCarty were bandmates in the original lineup of Renaissance, along with late Yardbird Keith Relf. This was before Annie Haslam was in the band.

I apologize for my earlier comment. I was wrong and out of place. Sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Uh-oh fred!...does this garage have a naughtystep??...
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:18pm dale:

al - i have those albums, when they were called renaissance and then when they changed the name to illusion. some good moments. but keith's sister jane joined as vocalist and i thought her voice was horrible. none of the players from the second iteration were in the first.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:19pm Sid:

Not at all, fred. All observations welcome. Though I'm pretty sure politics will get you in the hotseat.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:19pm Al:

@Dale - I don't think the second one was ever released in the US.

I Vote against the fredXit.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:22pm Sid:

If I remember correctly, Hawken recruited John Camp and other members of Renaissance II before playing with Illusion and then Strawbs. I see from allmusic that Hawken played piano on Meet The Smithereens!
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:22pm Al:

Hawken is a fabulous keyboard player.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:23pm Sid:

Frexit! Good Lord, that escalated quickly. :)
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:23pm John from Florham Park:

@Sid around the presidential election this is going to be my refuge from the insanity
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:23pm dale:

i might have gotten the illusion albums as canadian imports from a buffalo ny shop called record theater.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:24pm John from Florham Park:

Afternoon dale
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:24pm Sid:

John, yeah. Just stay away from Todd's show.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:26pm John from Florham Park:

@Sid why should I stay away from Todd’s show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:27pm fred:

@RRN63: I'm not going anywhere, I'll just try to think before saying something stupid. Tall order, I know
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:27pm Sid:

I got the second Renaissance I LP, Illusion, as an import (at Princeton Record Exchange). I think the first domestic release was CD.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:28pm Sid:

John, Todd tends to get political around election time. Apparently he can't help himself. Great show the rest of the year.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:28pm John from Florham Park:

@Fred we all say something stupid on here, as long as you don’t act like a troll I have no problem with you
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:29pm ?:

"Yod Crewzy and The Fixers" band name in the novel ENDERBY by Anthony Burgess 1963!
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:30pm John from Florham Park:

@Sid gotcha if Todd dies will just turn his show off and wait until the next show not going to be upset about it
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:31pm dale:

gary lewis and the playboys did his too i think.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:31pm Sid:

I don't think there was anything wrong with the age comment at all. From my male point of view, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In FreeForm - expect probly anything but Moderates...
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:32pm Al:

A few weeks ago a big topic was ringing in the ears!
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:33pm Sid:

Tinnitus. Still hear. I mean 'here'. A true variety chat box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:35pm fred:

@John from Florham Park: I'm already banned from Todd's show, so it's not like I was blameless there
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:36pm Mailman Tom:

I saw Renaissance perform at the Fillmore East back in February 1970. They opened for Savoy Brown and the Voices of East Harlem.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:36pm Sid:

Yikes. How do you get banned from a show?
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:37pm John from Florham Park:

@Fred how can anyone ban you from their show? Not being a smartass jut wondering
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:39pm Sid:

Tatoo Covered Hag? I feel like I have to stand up now for some reason.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:40pm fred:

@Sid: Being a dumb asshole does that
@John: It's not an official ban, just shame, enforced if I show up, so I'd rather not. I earned it
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:41pm John from Florham Park:

@fred you would rather not start a chat war with TOPT I understand completely
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:43pm John from Florham Park:

Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:43pm Sid:

Fred, you could always change your screen name for Todd's show. An alter-ego clandestine screen presence. "Frank" maybe.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:44pm John from Florham Park:

@SId that’s an idea
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:44pm dale:

kings and queens by renaissance is good and this vid is great
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:47pm Sid:

How was Renaissance I, Tom? I've been fortunate enough to see Renaissance II several times (once at Radio City). And when I lived near Philly, Annie & several iterations of Renaissance played frequently as she lives in New Hope PA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 4:49pm fred:

@Sid: Nah, I earned it, so I'll have to own up to it. I draw the line where his fans hassle me on other shows though. It's been like four years already
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:50pm Sid:

Fred, 4 years is way past the statute of limitations for a message board offense. It's in the official internet rule book! :)
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:51pm John from Florham Park:

@fred have not seen anyone hassle you on shows at all
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:52pm John from Florham Park:

@Sid I agree
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:53pm kev:

  Sun. 3/24/19 4:53pm John from Florham Park:

@fred there is wake and bake they are a pretty friendly bunch on there
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:54pm Mailman Tom:

Sid: I went there to see Savoy Brown and Renaissance happened to be on the bill. Renaissance was okay, but not my cup of tea.
Avatar Sun. 3/24/19 4:56pm dale:

rennaisance with annie was my first 'real' concert in 75. her in a sheer long white gown with a spotlight low behind her was the stuff of wet dreams.
  Sun. 3/24/19 4:59pm kev:

Music Machine!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/24/19 5:00pm fred:

@John from Florham Park: It's rare, and I leave when it happens. I did contact a DJ about it once. But, again, I'm the one to blame there. I didn't have to be an asshole in the first place. Todd's crew has a point
  Sun. 3/24/19 5:01pm Al:

Great show Bill. Thanks!
