enjoying the show on a dark and stormy nite in flanders.
somerville, ma in da house
Also joining from Ireland. Have had WFMU on ALL DAY! ^_^
@Zombiehamster - careful, once WFMU gets you in its clutches, it will not let go!
@Other David I am a relitavely new listener. Only started a few months back. Now I am happy to live here. >_0 I haven't been this excited about music I've heard on the radio in years.
Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:
Let's hear it for the Xmas novelty songs!
@zombie - truth! This place is unique and brilliant, tuning in for the first time was a revelation, I never knew radio could be so good :)
@O-David I'm a huge fan of oldies, blues, surf, soul and all sorts of oddities, so it really is perfect. Can get everything from grindcore to psych as well. Looking forward to the inteviews later in the show. There was a great show on Jake Jacobson earlier today. Highly recommend it!
Welcome to the club!
For me, it is "DJs with a Point of View," DJs saying, "Hey, listen to this!" On commercial radio you get the same damn song played four times a day for eight months straight.
@Zombiehamster: Welcome! Warning: this station may change your life. Only for the better, once you've had this (guaranteed) painful mind adjustment.
Thanks very much @Tom . @ChooChoo Variety? Personal choice? Passion? Enthusiasm? These are things that have sadly been absent from mainstream radio for a long, long time. It's a delight to hear them again, especially in such a variety of forms.
@Zombiehamster: OK then, that adjustment will not be painful for you, more like a relief. Why did I welcome you? You're already one of us
@fred when do we tell him about the initiation ceremony?
@other david: we have to pick out the music first.
@other david: point is that we don't. Do you remember yours? I certainly don't remember mine, so why should me remember what he's bound to forget? Boore rules!
good points all very well made
I meant "booze". Am I that drunk already?
Actually the "Drink Mixing Show" may be a perfect time for initiation and renewing our vows.
@fred @o-david Hey you guys, This Kool-Aid tastes funny.......
Also: I keep recognising samples between songs, somthing that will no doubt having me wracking my brains into the wee small hours.
@ChooChoo: I'm all too willing to renew those vows, bring it on!
if we score tickets to the Christmas Eve show do we need a special protective suit or an oxygen tank and mask or something. Because I have never been miles below the earth's surface and I don't know what you need.
RE: Miss Shuga Pie: How can we get her music? Norton Records? Other?
Get yourself a copy of Sugar Pie DeSanto's "Go Go Power" CD on Kent. It's got all her Chess 45s...essential!!
It is really nice to hear a great recording artist from the Chess record label. They are so few left. Chess was the greatest label ever.
Given the news reports since yesterday about Etta James' health I think it is timely to have Sugar Pie on today's program.
"Make the show for Shuga Pie!"
just got a sugar pie high. what a pistol.
Yeah, the Kent disc is killer. Required listening for fans of 60s R&B
oh, I thought Rex was talking about giving out tickets to his Christmas Eve party. But boy the Sugar Pie show sounds awesome. what a wonderful woman. so cool.
James in ATL:
Terrific interview Rex!
Shuga Pie: Makes for a great Holiday Gift!!
ken in denver:
Great interview, Rex and Sugar Pie!
Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:
Great, illuminating interview with Sugar!
Great show!! Thanks man. See ya soon.
Late comment but GREAT show Rex! If you want to see Sugar Pie in action circa 1964 - http://goo.gl/xGWKA - Homina Homina Homina!!!
