Greetings from Tannersville.
Great start Mr. D.
Thank you!
Avatar 12:03am javakid:

I've been having a problem with Tom's show - it doesn't allow me to go to bed cuz I need to just keep listening....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03am TomDash:

Hey folks, thanks for tuning in! 1980s, college radio flashback set to start the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04am TomDash:

Avatar 12:04am javakid:

  12:06am JakeGould:

Ever accidentally set paraffin wax on fire?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am coelacanth∅:

javakid i have that problem as well; but the solution is worse than the problem, so here i remain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am TomDash:

Well, I will try to make your late night listening as painless (or painful?) as possible - thanks for staying for the ride!
  12:14am RomanDogBird:

Tom, i've had this KJ sing stuck in my head all week. Fire Dances is my favorite.
  12:14am RDB:

"song", that is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am TomDash:

Hey RomanDogBird - great record -big college radio memories for me with that one...
  Swag For Life Member 12:15am Jinx:

Jesus Lizard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am TomDash:

Jinx...they're from the 90s, but I DID pull their earlier band Scratch Acid...up soon
  12:18am Carmichael:

Heya Tom. Crank out the shit.
Avatar 12:22am javakid:

great choice - love The Straightjacket Fits
  Swag For Life Member 12:22am Jinx:

oops! sorry. but that Die Kreuzen totally satisfied!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24am TomDash:

no worries Jinx...love Jesus Lizard and been meaning to work them into a show sometime! just keeping with an 80s theme (when I first started doing college radio)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

The 80s had some cool music. I guess you just have to know where to look.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am Cooh John:

Hanging with some cool cats.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:33am mariano:

Man, I haven't thought of Scratch Acid in ages! It really is like a college show from the 80s - taking me right back.
  Swag For Life Member 12:33am Jinx:

i didn't go to college until i was 25, in 1986, so these songs resonate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35am Cooh John:

In 1986 I was 27, Jinx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am TomDash:

Thanks guys...this idea just kinda came to me earlier this week and I built a set around it. Started radio in 1985-86 and started college in 1987. I will say, show's gonna take a few turns! 2nd set punk, 3rd and 4th sets rather weird...
  12:36am Old Dave:

This sounds EXACTLY like the university station where I was briefly a 3 AM DJ in 1982.
Do I miss it... somewhat. The friends I there had were so great and I was not old!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:37am mariano:

Damn, I was class of '87 in high school, been a while since I've felt like the youngster of the group!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Cooh John:

Bring it, TD.
  Swag For Life Member 12:38am Jinx:

Cooh John, you're old :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39am Cooh John:

  Swag For Life Member 12:42am Jinx:

will catch the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th sets on the archive. thanks TomDash! peace to all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am TomDash:

Thanks Jinx!
  12:45am Old Dave:

'cept we were forced to include Burning Spear and Black Uhuru in our sets, which taught my white ass something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Cooh John:

Good night, Jinx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Cooh John:

You make the 80's sound pretty good.
Avatar 12:49am javakid:

I wasn't familiar with this side of Died Pretty. Closer to Birthday Party than where they ended up.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:49am mariano:

The 80s were more 60s than they way they're portrayed in movies and TV shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am Cooh John:

djsheilab's men moaning.
  12:53am rw:

Evening! That's funny, I almost commented about Big Black being the gold standard when I did a college radio show at KJHK in Lawrence, KS!
  12:53am rw:

I guess you hit the nail with that set TD.
  12:54am rw:

In 1983. Thereabouts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am TomDash:

thanks rw
  12:56am rw:

Thank YOU Mr. Dash! You're the one playing the records.
Avatar 1:01am javakid:

Rubber City Rebels - alright - not "The Baby Eaters" tho'
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

These guys sound like a Devo offshoot. Cool!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:07am mariano:

A real Ohio theme here, interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Cooh John:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:08am mariano:

So of course now that I said that, there's a band from Texas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am TomDash:

sorry mariano...no OH theme, just a grab bag of punk with an OH 2-fer thrown in there!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:11am mariano:

But 7 presidents came from there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am Cooh John:

Avatar 1:13am javakid:

speaking of two-fers
  1:19am Old Dave:

Never thought I'd hear this stuff again. Amazing! Thanks Tom.
What were we striving for in 1983?
Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was...
  1:39am BH:

Punk music by somebody from the Hollywood Squares would be.... interesting...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am TomDash:

Ha - BH - as soon as I said Hollywood Squares was thinking of Hillsisde Strangler - next time!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:50am mariano:

Pretty intense!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am TomDash:

Hey mariano - yeah a left turn of a set indeed!
  2:10am rw:

Okay, THERE'S the left turn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10am TomDash:

Steve Shelley has always been a favorite drummer of mine.
Avatar 2:28am B/wad:

Late the party, but these are some lush sounds. Good morning from Tel Aviv.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:28am mariano:

'Sup, @B/Wad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am TomDash:

welcome B/wad! Gonna be a little spacey for the tail end of the show...
Avatar 2:35am B/wad:

@Tom: Spacey and Krauty!
Avatar 2:36am B/wad:

Ahoy..new soundz!
  2:43am rw:

Wow. I was just thinking this sounds like Baby's on Fire. Checked the playlist to see what it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am TomDash:

Good ear rw!
  2:45am rw:

That or I've listened to too much Eno. My money's on the latter.
Avatar 2:46am B/wad:

RW: I share your observation and your addiction
  2:51am rw:

B/wad, I suppose there are less healthy addictions.
  2:53am Ike:

This is cool.
  2:53am rw:

Closing in on the end here.. Thanks Tom Dash! Nice trip. 'Night all. (Or good morning, depending on your position on the planet!)
Avatar 2:55am B/wad:

Very true. Met him a few times in London.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55am TomDash:

Thanks rw, had a blast. And thanks for tuning in everyone - B/wad, Ike and the earlier commenters - will see ya next week!
Avatar 2:57am B/wad:

Aye aye, Captain
  2:59am gd0:
