Options January 9, 2013: annual-ish show dedicated to my high school friend Jimmy Mack

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Back in October 2006 I dedicated my first show on the regular WFMU weekly schedule to Jim McIntyre, a/k/a Jimmy Mack (pictured, lower right, in Billboard in August 1980) who was one of my best friends in high school. I've talked to a lot of people over the years who credit a cool uncle, older sister, or other family member for steering them in the right musical direction. That's what Jimmy was for me. We met in high school and became friends through a shared love of music while working together on the school newspaper, but somehow in the pre-Internet mid-'70s Jimmy was able to sniff out cool music that wasn't yet -- or, sometimes, ever -- part of the mainstream.

Jimmy started working at WBCN, the leading rock radio station in Boston, while we were still in high school. He began as a volunteer but soon had paying jobs as Assistant Music Director and Music Coordinator. His excitement, enthusiasm and passion for discovering and sharing new music was matched by his generosity - nearly every time I saw him he'd present me with a bag of extra (or rejected) promo records. Several of the bands he introduced me to are still my favorites to this day: Cheap Trick. The Dictators. The Ramones. The Stranglers. Ultravox. Foreigner. Television. (I said SEVERAL, not ALL.) Imagine being in your teens and having a friend turn you on to just ONE of these bands. Now increase that impact tenfold or more, and you start to get an idea of the importance of Jimmy's friendship.

In the summer of 1985, Jimmy learned he had AIDS. A year later he passed away, at the age of 25. Generous until the end, he spent his last year and half or so volunteering on the Boston AIDS Action Committee's hotline and working with the AIDS Action Council and the National Association of People with AIDS, where he was elected to the board shortly before he was hospitalized in 1986. Regrettably I had lost contact with Jimmy by this time, and didn't hear of his passing until later that year.

When I got on the regular schedule at WFMU I wanted to acknowledge Jimmy's impact on my life, and especially on my musical tastes. In recent years I've dedicated the first show of the WFMU fall schedule to Jimmy, since his influence is never too far from what you hear me play on my show. There was no schedule change this past fall because of issues related to Sandy, so I'm using this first new-music-based show of the year as an opportunity to once again remember Jimmy and to thank him for his role in shaping my musical taste.

Yay!! Andy wanted to pull over and thank you for the repeat but we have to get home so he asks that I tell you: Thank you!! He also dares you to play it for the next 2 1/2 hrs.)
  9:30pm keving:

A friend of mine has recommended Dexy's Midnight Runners to me before, but I was a little puzzled, having only ever heard their big hit. This song makes a pretty convincing case! I understand there's a new album coming out soon.
  9:30pm Pine:

  9:30pm Mike:

Killer Dexy tune!
I thought it was an camped up Roxy Music track.....
Play it AGAIN
  9:31pm Danne D:

whoa an Aharon sighting
  9:35pm PB:

Roxy Music is another band whose best known song (Love Is The Drug) is probably their all-time worst.

Kudos to EFD for the correct use of penultimate.

Evan , I am almost positive you played that song , probably the week it came out in 1980 on NYU. And there after.You are the best DJ.

@PB: Due to living in the UK in the early 70s, I always have a soft spot for Virginia Plain...

@Fuzzy: Wait till baseball season. All doubt will be removed.
  9:39pm PB:

@G, like or dislike Virginia Plain?
  9:39pm Mike:

True, PB. Live version of Roxy's Pyjamarama is tops.

sentimental favorite, PB -- Radio One, Top of the Pops, early puberty... imprinted...
  9:41pm PB:

@Mike. From Viva? I haven't listened to Viva in years but remember it as being really good.
  9:42pm Fuzzy:

@G: I hope so, now that Valentine's been 86'd! :-)
  9:43pm PB:

G - love Virginia Plain. Great song. Favorite Roxy album is still Country Life but all the early stuff was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm G:

No arguments here, PB :)
  9:45pm ?:

You never forget those that gave you your ears.
And isn't Jimmy Mack a really cool name?
Thanks Jimmy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm efd:

gregory, that's kind of you to say that; thanks for continuing to listen after all this time! I may well have played that song when it first came out, but it since got pushed out of my head.

Thanks and hellos (helloes?) to Fuzzy, SteveL, Mike, Aharon and the mysterious ?
Really appreciate you tuning in and commenting!
  9:53pm Mike:

Si , Viva is a good listen from start to finish .
I like to follow Pyjamarama with a slightly sped up Marquee Moon.
  9:54pm Mildred:

New GBV today- 'cause they can't won't stop:
  9:58pm Kat in Chicago:

Mazes are from Chicago (at least the Mazes you played are - I think there might be a couple of bands by that name). They include a couple ex-members of the 1900s, who I used to like a lot.

Now that is a stage name!
  11:01pm Holly in NC:

@efd - that is beautiful. Are other monikets equally fitting?
  11:02pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Therese played this Sunday night. When I saw Glitter Wizard I was hoping it was Electric Wizard playing stoner rock versions of Gary Glitter songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm efd:

I really should have saved this for the ticket giveaway.
  11:05pm Danne D:

Big whoop about Fancy Cymbals - not like his middle name is "Hunk" or anything
  11:12pm Julie:

Does that mean we can't leave before 5 either..oooh scary
  11:12pm Danne D:

I plan to be there :)

Hiya Julie Dark :)
  11:14pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Come to think of it does Glitter Wizard know the Upper Crust?
  11:14pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Hi Julie! Hi Danne!
  11:15pm Julie:

hmmm...the board is REALLY hard for me to read tonight, the comments seem pale
  11:15pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

William Shatner is a special guest on the episode of "The Six Million Dollar Man" that's on right now.

  11:20pm Julie:

Oooh neat Holly. That was a fun one!
  11:20pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

If I lived up there I would be trying to score tix to one of those James Moore shows. I'm a total Zorn nerd.

I do think the blue type should be...a little darker maybe, hard to read!

thanks for the color feedback Matt and Julie! I was wondering if there wasn't enough contrast over on this side; I'll tweak it before next week's show.
  11:26pm Holly in NC:

@Julie - Fizzy Human Bomb on repeat!
  11:27pm steve:

go for some earth tones. they're very 70s.
  11:27pm Julie:

ah! so I'm not going blind after all
  11:28pm Uncle Michael:

I thought the low contrast theme was designed to keep old farts like me out.

The comments board makes me think of Velvet Underground's "Pale Blue Eyes."

Did anyone else have Earth Shoes?

I want to keep these basic colors for the winter at least, but I'll change the text to more of a navy blue. Or maybe cornflower. #Crayola

@Holly: Nah, was wearing Jox by Tom McCann back when these tunes came out!
  11:31pm Danne D:

The color scheme on the comments does give off an inverted commodore 64 vibe
  11:31pm Charles Osgood:

Oh yes.

Forgot to hash it #c64

My sister had earth shoes in Ann Arbor in the mid/late 70s. They were *sooooo* necessary :)

  11:33pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Thanks for playing that Testors track. It reminded me taht I needed to order the Sonny Vincent & The Bad Reactions 7-inch on colored vinyl since they're almost sold out.
  11:33pm Danne D:

#BGZ is now trending on the Evan Funk Davies comments board :)

Thanks EFD!

Black Joe Lewis again today! Like the band name "The Soul Distributors".
  11:42pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Did anyone own a pair of Zips? I wanted a pair when I was a kid because the commercial pretty much told you you would run faster if you wore Zips.
  11:43pm Julie:

Oooh reissue of The Gift! So excited!
  11:45pm Holly in NC:

Wooden Dr Scholls. And Candees that I can't believe I was allowed to wear. Later, LL Bean duck boots, as per preppy handbook - no wait, that was Tretorns ; -)
  11:46pm Michael from the Left Coast:

what's on the second CD of the Gift?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm efd:

"singles, b-sides and demos." Mostly demos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Matt from Springfield:

PDX Pop Now! No seriously, I mean RIGHT NOW! Get your PDX Pop ON!
  11:49pm john:

Oh right, this was totally Tretorn country. Ever the iconoclast, I wore Pumas on the tennis court.
  11:49pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

PDX Pop, get your butt in the car. NOW!
  11:50pm Julie:

30 years? Ack
  11:50pm Kat in Chicago:

For a minute I thought that was "I met a nun on the bus"
  11:51pm Uncle Michael:

I heard "I met a gnome on the bus."
  11:51pm john:

It wasn't?
  11:53pm Julie:

can a gnome be a nun?
  11:54pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

That song was about Mr. Chomsky. "I met Noam on a bus."
  11:54pm steve:

wait... what was the lyric? i met a (??) on the bus?
  11:54pm Fuzzy:

@Julie: If they're Catholic or Buddhist, sure.
  11:55pm Holly in NC:

@John, I always forget that you were a REAL preppie! You must have found the handbook both amusing & disconcerting
  11:55pm Fuzzy:

Carmelite Gnomes is so my new band name...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Sure a gnome can be a nun--but can a gnome, be a Nomi??
  11:56pm Uncle Michael:

Klaus Gnomey
  11:56pm bald little Benny:

I'm sooooo skinny

Yes! We need more Malta-themed music up in here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Nomah:

Did somebody call me?
  11:58pm john:

@Holly, it was more than a little scary. I had to check to make sure someone wasn't living in our attic and coming out at night to poke around the closets. I'm still not entirely sure.
  11:58pm Uncle Michael:

Nome Oar Garciapara?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm efd:

Well this show is ending just in time! Thanks for listening, everybody! See you next week!
  11:59pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

How does the Travelocity mascot row a boat?

With a gnome oar.
  11:59pm Danne D:

@BGZ I think DJ Jazzy Jeff and the fresh prince pretty much killed any desire to have zips :)

Thanks for a wonderful show, EFD and RIP Jimmy Mack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Matt from Springfield:

Noam and Nomi were having quite the conversation on the bus!
  12:00am Uncle Michael:

Great show, Evan. Thanks.

The cool thing about the archive is that a Dexy's twin-spin can very easily be turned into a QUAD-SPIN. Great show as usual EFD !
  11:06am Paula M.:

Hey Evan,
Really great to see the pics. in the Billboard, especially Jimmy. That's Sunny Joe White from KISS radio, next to Jimmy and at the top is Matt when he had all that great hair. He was big at WBCN and helped a lot with Jimmy's wake, setting up and playing all the music. Jimmy would have loved it! Thanks, Pau
