  4:12am Ian Zamboni:

  4:20am Ian Zamboni:

  4:21am Amanda:

This is a whole 'nuther '80s, my friend.
  4:27am RobotBoy:

The 80s where Walter Mondale was president, perhaps.
  4:34am Julie:

Everybody Dance!
  4:37am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie! And friends!
You got a Bananarama thing going in the picture! (Will you sing upbeat Sex Pistols songs for us?) :)
  4:39am Julie:

I wished you happy birthday, Matt! I don't think we're going to do any more singing tonight.
  4:42am Matt from Springfield:

I see you got "Tear It All Away"! That's a good one.
Nice selection of tunes!
  4:45am Matt from Springfield:

The Fixx, Buggles, Split Enz, Nick Lowe, Ian Dury, Romantics...but NOT the ones you would think! Always love it when people explore catalogues, shakes things up.
  4:48am hamburger:

yay - catfight / lovefest :D
  4:59am helsingfred:

Matt's spot on. Jez keep playin' album trax, no megahits needed, it woiks and woiks!
  5:01am Matt from Springfield:

I've seen "sleeveface" pictures before! Thanks for schooling us Amanda!
  5:01am Billy in Dublin:

Fun Boy THree! - Hi Julie
  5:01am Ian Zamboni:

  5:02am Bridget:

Oh yeah! I don't need to sleep now!
  5:03am Matt from Springfield:

@Ian: Now that's a great sleeveface! The shirt matches and everything, that took some effort.
  5:06am RobotBoy:

Lady GaGa will never make a classic movie like Who's That Girl.
  5:06am Julie:

hi Billy!
  5:07am Matt from Springfield:

@Amanda: I pledged in to Joe McGasko's 2nd Marathon show. Were you working the phones on that one? My intermediary was a very fine lady, I think you may have been her!
  5:07am Bridget:

Oh my gosh, Who's That Girl is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is so much like a Howard Hawks movie.
  5:09am Jay:

i used to see bananarama a lot as we were both working at the bbc at the same time
oh and good morning for London U.K.
  5:10am Julie:

Good morning Jay! Special show tonight, pop kick!
  5:11am Amanda:

Hi, Matt! I actually did only Joe McG's first marathon show. What a shame that I didn't get to talk to you... better luck next time. (that means just keep calling to donate money.) Thank you for the kind words re: catalogues!

@Jay: Luckyyyy.
  5:12am Jay:

pop kick ? tell me more !!!
  5:14am Julie:

Just a much poppier show than usual. Don't usually do the dancing at this time of night.
  5:15am RobotBoy:

This Men Without Hats song is cool. Musically reminds me of early Depeche Mode.
  5:16am Julie:

Yes I'm loving it!
  5:18am Jay:

great show it takes me back !!!!
  5:18am RobotBoy:

Let's Dance, one of Bowie's most underrated. Maybe his best 80s album. Sometimes I prefer it over Scary Monsters...
  5:19am Julie:

Hmm I don't know, I really love Scary Monsters. But then, it's a darker album, eh?
  5:20am RobotBoy:

Little known factoid (I think): Steve Ray Vaughn plays on Let's Dance.
  5:21am Ian Zamboni:

Bowie wouldn't pay for Vaughn to tour on the LP
  5:22am Ian Zamboni:

Klaus Nomi was a backup singer for David Bowie on his 1979 Saturday Night Live appearance
  5:22am Julie:

Yep and he was like the costume guy
  5:23am RobotBoy:

Yep. That was one of the more interesting SNL performances, to say the least. Bowie was a dashing young man back in those days.
  5:26am Matt from Springfield:

Wow! Thanks Bridget! Taco singing old songs OTHER than "Puttin' On The Ritz"! Thanks for enlightening us!
  5:28am Ian Zamboni:

  5:29am Ian Zamboni:

According to Taco's official Facebook page, he enjoys horseback riding.
  5:29am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: You said last week that you aren't having a live set--yet. Give Moby a call, a 3-6 am show would be the perfect live radio for his stuff!
  5:30am RobotBoy:

I'll Tumble 4 Ya? That's actually from the Wedding Singer soundtrack, sillies.
  5:31am Bridget:

Thank you Matt! I still get dizzy and swoon-y when I think about the marriage of old standards and synth.
  5:34am Bridget:

Wow horseback riding. That's surprisingly manly
for Taco. :)
  5:35am Julie:

I knew Moby as a kid, but I haven't tried. I have his first record here too that hopefully I'll have time to play.
  5:35am RobotBoy:

You should check out the early Human League. Darker but still good. They were actually a pretty important band in the popularization of electronic music.
  5:38am Matt from Springfield:

Friend of 'FMU, Aimee Mann!
  5:41am Matt from Springfield:

Wiki: "The song is about past sour relationships, and was originally written and sung by Aimee Mann as to a woman. 'Til Tuesday rehearsed that format in Boston the previous summer, but Epic was unhappy with the lyrics, they thought that it was a "very powerful, commercial song", and wanted to remove the lesbian components to appeal to the mainstream market."
  5:45am Amanda:

Aidan QUINN! I mean.
  5:47am Matt from Springfield:

Aidan Quinn from DSS, and Steven Wright and Richard Hell as well. Interesting.
Griffin Dunne from Who's That Girl?
  5:50am Matt from Springfield:

Trio--it was the VW commercial with "Da Da Da" that first opened my ears to them, but I've got an appreciation of Trio because of that. (The full title is "Da Da Da - Ich lieb dich nicht du liebst mich nicht - Aha Aha Aha" -- "Da Da Da, I Don't Love You, You Don't Love Me, Aha Aha Aha")
  5:50am Julie:

Ah my best friend had the trio album. Always loved Anna!
  5:51am Amanda:

I remember that commercial fondly too. I liked that they had to put the sofa back out on the street because it smelled bad.
  5:54am Ian Zamboni:

do you like carvel ice cream commercials
  5:55am Bridget:

Of course I like Carvel Ice Cream commercials!
  5:55am Matt from Springfield:

The funny thing is, even if they rejected the couch, you know SOMEONE picked that up before the garbagemen did!
  5:58am hamburger:

gr8-ties show today lay-dees!
  5:59am Matt from Springfield:

Thank you all for an awesome 80s show!

(And for the Archives: Check out Amanda's show, Wed 12-2 pm on the Give The Drummer Some webstream, starting April 27th!)
  6:04am Amanda:

*Subject to change... but yes, on Give The Drummer Radio very soon.

Thank you hamburger, Matt, and ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! Bridget and I had a lovely morning.
  11:17am Amanda:

By the way, everyone should also check out Vicki's Do Or DIY stream, which is another of the alternate WFMU webstreams and it is awesome. http://wfmu.org/playlists/PL
  3:15pm anne:
