Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Scraps:

I saw them on the tour for this album (True Colours) in Seattle at the Showbox. 37 years ago. Gee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Scraps:

(maybe 36)
  10:08pm Eric Hat:

Hey Therese and all... I was just thinking, there's no request based show on FMU. Yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm chris_in_space:

Can't say it for Split Enz or Buzzcocks, but I saw the Beastie Boys many times during this tour and the next, 25 or so years ago? I don't want to do the math.
  10:12pm Eric Hat:

I jump back, I want to kiss myself.

gratitude for Therese
  10:20pm Eric Hat:

Two things I hope to live to see realized...

-A Primarily Request Based FMU Program Hour

-FMU hitting global tour circuits (obviously on a volunteer basis)

Please don't give me shit. Just extending the tentacles.
  10:21pm Eric Hat:

Forgive me. Got the night off and floating appropriately.
  10:24pm Carmichael:

If no one wishes it, it can't happen. Like Mendocino in German.
Avatar 10:24pm saeheykid:

mendo ist zuper
  10:25pm Carmichael:

Es sieht sehr gut aus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Scraps:

i like to ba-na-na? okay!
  10:34pm PJ:

@Eric Hat: Unless you have something different in mind, a request-based show is the antithesis of free-form - a DJ playing whatever they please. (And you know how much DJs love to play requests).
  10:39pm Andal:

big laugh at "how the radio sausage is made." hey, hearing a dj not know what to play next only makes them seem more like a friend curating an experience...
  10:39pm sugarwolf:

What I Did For Love!!!
  10:46pm Eric Hat:

Actually, I'm thinking a request based show is pretty free form...considering it's basically improv. It would be fun. But whatever. Just an idea really. Only been listening to FMU since 89. Still trying to get into the swing of things..
  11:06pm PJ:

Thanks for the swell tunes, Therese.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Scraps:

The choreography also is just awesome, too
  11:19pm Marc15:

I loved Jerry Orbach in the "Fantasticks"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Scraps:

very very downbeat musical. cannot believe they got away with it
  11:19pm sugarwolf:

Yesssssssssss All That Jazz!!!
  11:20pm sugarwolf:

I had the DVD and I still bought the Criterion version!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Scraps:

Therese, you are awesome. Ben Vereen at the top
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Therese:

That is money well spent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Scraps:

Again, godlike choreography.
Avatar 11:24pm Hoboken Jack:

I'm sleepy but wanted to say hello Therese!
  11:24pm sugarwolf:

Show tunes with Law and Order stars and guest stars are my favorite!
  11:25pm zenkoan:

It's showtime, folks!! Man, I love this flick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Scraps:

i really love Gideon birthday dance with his girlfriend and daughter. The daughter (Erzsébet Földi) was awesome. Left showbiz, apparently.
  11:30pm zenkoan:

Then there's Air-otica, one of the hottest things on celluioid.
  11:32pm Marc15:

Who wasn't a guest star on one of the "Law And Order" Shows?
Avatar 11:34pm saeheykid:

that was INEZ MIDDLETON for me.
she put me to it and had me just damn do it!
miss ya 'nez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Scraps:

difficult theater teacher? how strange!
  11:44pm scud:

like that band teacher in the drummer movie, wild wayne, or whatever it was called. the bald farmer's insurance guy.
  11:46pm Clay:

I bet Roy Scheider's high school nickname was "Apple"!
  11:52pm tomasz.:

it's gone well showtime-y
  11:52pm tomasz.:

actually i meant showtune-y
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks to the Pippin soundtrack, Granny from "The Beverly Hillbillies" is a Motown recording artist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Gaylord Fields:

She's actually billed as "Irene 'Granny' Ryan" on the Motown 45 of "No Time At All"!
  11:56pm sugarwolf:

The French version of this song is pretty good.
  11:58pm sugarwolf:

Anyway this show makes me think RIP FOOTLIGHTS. still sorta regret not buying the record with selections from JC Superstar in Hungarian
  11:59pm sugarwolf:

Also why didn't I buy the Tammy Grimes record at housing works I saw years ago??
  12:00am tomasz.:
