Mike Sin on the radio! Quite a pleasant surprise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm pacific standard simon:

This is a show I'll enjoy more than once.
Avatar 1:16pm dk:

i'm probably a bad person for saying this, but that Arly Silver sounded a lot like early Green Day only, y'know, better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm fleep:

Microcasettes were tiny, but the young lady with the legs seems to be holding a standard size cassette. Is a 'micro cassette' something different?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm pacific standard simon:

I think that's an attempt to market a "cassingle".
  1:20pm Frauenfelder:

Fantastic show! Thanks for making Saturday morning in Los Angeles awesome.

Lotta left coast in the house.
Avatar 1:24pm Brian in UK:

Pop-tastic Mr Sin.
  1:25pm Silvia:

Hey D.J., you should talk more.
  1:26pm johnk77:

the cassettes in the picture on the playlist
are compact cassettes
orginally developed by Philips
the micro cassette came later
  1:28pm Frauenfelder:

That's because there are no good radio stations in LA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm pacific standard simon:

I got yer background music: Giants & Cards, first inning, St. Louis.

The Hate Bombs coming to ATL with the Woggles soon!
Avatar 1:31pm Tony in Durham NC:

The Hate Bombs RULED Sleazefest back in the day. Of course, everything ruled back in the day, but that's another story.

What Frauenfelder typed. It's a vast wasteland out here. Indie 103.1 tried.
Avatar 1:33pm Tony in Durham NC:

Hey man, got any Mondo Topless? The band that is, although...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm pacific standard simon:

Seattle has KEXP, but it's no WFMU.
  1:35pm Frank Zaatar:

Dirty Looks! The best anything ever to come out of Staten Island. They should have been as famous as The Jam.
Avatar 1:44pm Tony in Durham NC:

Mike, I like the cut of your jib.
  1:44pm ?:

There was a Canadian press of that Dirty Looks record on Stiff Canada. It was everywhere,all though the 80's, at least in Toronto.
