  9:17pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

here come the funk... was going to the w'green's for a battery for the vox wah-wah but the Ernie K Doe came on... Oh what to do but listen. Good set.

Have a Happy New Thing!
Avatar 9:45pm Scraps:

I didnt know TomDash was on. Going to settle in early then and listen. Cheers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

the thing that's so appealing about Marty taking requests is that he takes them but generally doesn't play them!
Avatar 9:46pm Scraps:

Cissy Strut is excellent probably whoever does it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm fleep:

body shop. of course.

Hey, TomDash thanks for filling in on Everybody Elsewhere Weekend

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm TomDash:

I know coelaacantho - love the Megadeath requests...if you have one, I promise not to play it!
  9:50pm steveL:

First and favorite Prince album!
  9:50pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Well the Choc Milk was a a fine replay of a great lost world we love. Reading minds... with Prince. Mine was blown with this album. It never got real radio play. Another new to me is "Cream"...
  9:51pm steveL:

"People say I'm rude..."
  9:52pm steveL:

"Call me ", damn it!
  9:54pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

There was zero BS on that recording.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm fleep:

Now is the time on DotDash when we dance.
  9:59pm Andal:

Great set. You just got me and my boyfriend arguing about the electronica mastery of Prince vs the Orb.
  10:01pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

There's more mastery. Like Throbbing Gristle... on vinyl no less. Nice work DD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Cooh John:

Throbbing on the heels of love. Take me into the night.
  10:06pm steveL:

Killer set. Keep it up!

  10:12pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Not sure about other listeners but 'would rather have Tom Dash, live at the controls than a streaming AlGoreRhythm programming. BTW, more Prince. Pretty please?
Avatar 10:12pm Scraps:

“It’s Obvious” is one of my favorite 50 rock songs evah.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm TomDash:

Thanks all for listening...about to take a prog rock left turn! Please indulge me for a minute (or should I say 8 or so minutes - ha!)
Avatar 10:32pm Fox:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm TomDash:

Best ending ever...
  10:43pm larry of lackawack:

I have to laugh with "Get Them Out By Friday", when the big US banks claimed, "No one could see this coming". In the future people will be shorter in height, we can fit more on the same building site.
