I could've done 2 full hours of madonna but I limited myself to 20 or so minutes of fairly offbeat stuff
Avatar 12:37pm

offbeat is good
Avatar 12:39pm

That Emmy song kind of reminds me of "Why Do I Cry" by The Remains

Years before Madonna's Blond Ambition get up, Pat Benatar briefly appeared in a similar outfit for the video Sex as a Weapon. Wonder if one borrowed from the other or was it just a coincidence?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm

Madonna borrowed from everyone and everyone borrowed from her
Avatar 1:03pm

many of today's artists certain do. Katy and Ga Ga in particular.
Avatar 1:04pm

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm

and I think she was very inspired by Debbie Harry
Avatar 1:07pm

Makes sense.

Avatar 1:29pm

... Whole lot of Dots

Anybody else noticing lower volume of music versus Julie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm

I'm sure that's my fault..I'm not used to this mic and probably talking way too loud.

You're not too loud. The music's too soft.


julie your djing is great
and your vocal mic level is fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm
listener james from westwood:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm
