I have a special copy of Scott. I'd left it on my turntable when my son was a toddler and came home to find him with his metal Thomas the Tank Engine toys putting them all to bed in the Roundhouse via the train turntable. Couldn't get mad at him as it was my fault for leaving the record on the turntable but I now have a precious copy of that record...pristine on one side but scratched to hell on the other. Love them both.

@Goyim, Yes, you used to be able to hear some good stuff back in the day. The Einsteins had something good going with WHFS when it was in Bethesda, and the AM WAYE was pretty good as well. Things started taking a slide when Georgetown U stopped broadcasting. Now 'RNR is about it, mostly filled out with ex-HFS jocks. Thank goodness for the interwebs. Pretty amazing that we are in the radio range of the nation's capital without a decent station.

@Phillippe there's good radio out of DC still for sure -- WPFW and 92Q for two -- but dial segregation has increased wildly and "white" radio is rough going. The left side of the dial was a magical multicultural wonderland in the 70s and 80s for me in Annapolis, and then there was -- as you say --102.3 and the early days of 99.1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 10:41am Phillippe Bastille:

@JFFP I can't deal with 98 Rock. They talk more than Stashe Ken and their music selection is nothing great. I guess I could count WTMD in the halfway decent music mix. I just put on the FMU app and bluetooth to the radio when I'm driving and I'm a happy camper when I'm driving.

@Joe, regarding records you don’t like: as a kid in the late 70s I did that Columbia House offer where they sent you 12 albums for a penny, then have to buy x records down the road. It was hard to find a redeeming song on some of the records. Still i felt kind of guilty and wondered what kind of life of crime it would lead me to. Apparently one clever guy used different mailing addresses to accumulate 26,000 such records. I think my haul included Foghat Stone Blue, Nazareth

one night we caught a cab home from a club on the LES. the driver actually asked if we were scoring dope. i guess he wanted the return fare.

our family lived out on long island, on the edges of northport; our across the street neighbor was an old russian lady, Baiko by name. i loved being around her, and my dad loved practicing his russian on her. such an old culture

Randy Bachman's CBC radio show Vinyl Tap is usually interesting. He tells good stories, and knows everyone. I couldn't find old episodes on the CBC website, but he's still doing me episodes, and it's broadcast 3x a week.
