Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm

Yeah, actually it was fun as well as a bit grim for that reason. But enlightening.

@Jack Mello & Melinda re the FMU movie -I liked it a lot too….with among my fave parts been the old footage from bygone era studios on Upsala College

Just tuned in. Nice hearing the music you're playing on the radio. Good stuff.

hey steven, thanks for listening, welcome abroad.

I was preset hopping all night until I stumbled upon your show. The stereo's getting some exercise tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm

@Billy Jam: I liked those parts too. Love learning some history and comparing then vs. now.
Avatar 11:31pm
Billy Jam:

@melinda - yeah me too and am always learning something new about this wonderful station - like yesterday I went back into WFMU's Beware of The Blog to read about that same (Upsala campus) era about the time when the one and only Danny Fields had a show on WFMU 5 nights a week and one night in 1969 brought in a messed up on booze etc. Iggy Pop who proceeded to puke all over Danny's fellow WFMU DJ Vin Scelsa’s sneakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm

Wow! Great story. I enjoyed Danny Fields' guest appearance on Gaylord's show this year.
Avatar 11:37pm
Billy Jam:

yes - another thing I just learned of - as I totally missed that one but have bookmarked the archives to listen to over weekend! - another wonderful feature of this station (something lacking in most stations) is ability to back and hear anything -

“PiL” to “Happy Mondays?”

Time to turn in, thanx fer the tunes Jack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm
Jack Mello:

take care, melinda, thanks for listening.

Hey J. Mello and B. Jam! I really liked the Happy Mondays back in the day. But man, Shaun Ryder has aged badly after all of those pills, thrills and bellyaches.

Well, if WFMU has to play mainstream R&B, at least it's not TLC. I actually LOOVE 1 thing as a guilty pleasure. bobbin my head..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm
Jack Mello:

thanks, ian. they use a sample from the meters on that track, that's why!

Did not know that jack, of course it had a sample. I'll check out the original.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am
Jack Mello:
