  4:14pm JakeGould:

To be fair, modern Manhattan hates clubs. Used to be so many varied choices. And no idea what the backstory of “The Dance” is but right on Lafayette Street in the Village and it’s now gone? Strange. Why do people go to the Village nowadays if they don’t work or live there nowadays.

Speaking of Dusty, this Joan as Police Woman song reminds me of You Don't Have To Say You Love Me somehow.
  4:43pm Jett:

You mentioned "Be My Baby" as the greatest girl group record, Well for me it is "Maybe" by The Chantels.

Nice Loverboy spoof on the Joan as Police Woman record.

Very few Country female artists on your show, you may want to look into some of them.

Jett—You are right. But this is a pop show, which is also why you don't hear much hip hop, classical, etc.
