What are these mysterious ABBA time codes?
Avatar 6:16pm Roberto:

Somehow, Therese put seven versions of "Calling Occupants" on one CD and made it work.

@Therese: It's Linsk Minyk, featured vocalist with the Shmenge Brothers.
Avatar 6:34pm Roberto:

Did they ever catch the POS who attacked Rick Moranis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Therese:

Ah, thank you Gaylord! You are my fact-checking cuz.
Avatar 6:37pm RobinSays:

I've come to appreciate Madonna's music lately (I thought her songs were too simple and meaningless back in the '80s.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Gaylord Fields:

Well thank you for playing "Burning Up," which is perfect dance pop and one of Madonna's absolute best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Therese:

@Roberto- I don't think so, I feel like that would have been big news.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@RobinSays: I happen to know you were enjoying simple and meaningless punk, new wave, power pop, etc. in the '80s! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Therese:

I love Madonna. It takes A LOT of restraint not to play her every week.
Avatar 6:38pm Joe B:

Madonna has plenty of entries for a possible next round of canceled singles
Avatar 6:39pm Joe B:

Madonna every week! do it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Gaylord Fields:

Like Joe, I'd also support you doing a weekly Madge Moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Therese:

@Joe B and Gaylord- I will take this under advisement!
Avatar 6:43pm Joe B:

damn, how did I miss this Taffy tune in 1985?
Avatar 6:47pm Joe B:

No wonder Daryl Hall had no time for Eddie Van Halen - he was busy with Ms D!

Thank you to Ross in Muskegon, Michigan for your pledge! Just $261 away from my Hellraiser goal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Handy Haversack:

Hi, Therese! Hi, all! We have been listening but away from the typing device! Sounding great!
Avatar 6:48pm RobinSays:

@Gaylord. You know..you're right. I did like Trio's "Da Da Da." I was so much snobbier then, I'm more open minded now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Therese and dance party denizens. Get that goal!

Have you tried restarting your router, @Winston?

You got it, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Uncle Michael:

You're welcome. I like WFMU.
  6:56pm Zephyr:

I love your shows. I think you're WFMU's best and that's saying a lot. 80's flashback. I miss dancing at Danceteria and then heading to Save The Robots. Kid Creole and The Coconuts were the best club band IMO and I loved hearing the club dee-jays spin Was Not Was....Reminiscing to a time of decadence and fun....long ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Therese:

@Zephyr- you might have read my mind. Stay tuned...
  6:57pm kev:

you're so much fun T

@Ken- no need to apologize for pizza-related activity!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Uncle Michael:

I arranged for the highest quality paneling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

I should be on that panel, I was 14 in 1971.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

Haha UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm chresti:

Nice one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hi Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Therese:

Wendy! Hi, Wendy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Uncle Michael:

I wonder if anyone's done a SGS show with only records that weren't round.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Handy Haversack:

Hi, Wendy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm chresti:

It's always nice to have some paneling to consult with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hello, Handy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Uncle Michael:

Oh, hell yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm looking forward to the throwdown against Uncle Michael, and Therese being an impartial arbiter of the proceedings. In an unrelated matter: Therese, do you have a Venmo account? No reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Uncle Michael:

This won't be like the 1st debate, Gaylord. IYKWIM...
  7:17pm Zephyr:

Re: Was Not Was...My drag queen name is "Claire Voyant"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Therese:

@Gaylord, I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that you would suggest such a thing! (and yes, thank you.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Uncle Michael:

I see how it is.
  7:19pm Zephyr:

They tore it up with "Woodwork Squeaks and Out Come the Freaks" too...Such an interesting 80's band. Impossible to pin down exactly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Therese:

@Uncle Michael- I do prefer Zelle.
  7:26pm phat:

These extended dance mixes seem so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Uncle Michael:

(that's good to know. Therese)
  7:27pm paddy in matawan:

Jude! Thank you!
Avatar 7:31pm slugluv1313:

such cool tunes, Therese!
(DAMN i am missing Danceteria!)
  7:32pm Zephyr:

Anyone fascinated with the club scene and 80's music I highly recommend a book called "Life and Death on the NY Dance Floor, 1980-1983" by Tim Lawrence. He got the info right....A great read...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Therese:

$26 to go with 26 minutes left in the show!
  7:37pm Dean:

Done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Therese:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Therese:

And thank you Wendy for the cheddar!
  7:38pm Dean:

Best I can offer is Gouda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Mmm...cheddar... You're welcome, Therese! Thanks for making Sunday evenings sound so good. Or, as Dean noted, gouda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm chresti:

Wagging the tail and mooing!
  7:39pm soupfriend:

Aww I listened to this nonstop in cleveland a few years ago <3

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm chresti:

Haha, bring on the puns!
  7:46pm Dean:

This Stones track reminds me of one of the dozen or so dreams I had last night, the one that woke me up early in the morning. I met Rod Stewart just as he was preparing to join Faces, but I was situated in the present, so I congratulated him on all the good work he would do with Faces and beyond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm chresti:

I think I'd be speechless if I met Rod Stewart in a dream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm chresti:

My favorite gouda is the aged kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Therese:

@Dean- I had a dream once that I met Keith Richards in a New Orleans bar and he tried to get me to go out to the alley with him. My dream self was all, "no way! You're Keith Richards! I'm not going in the alley with you!" My dream self is WAY smarter than my regular self.
  7:53pm Dean:

I fibbed a bit about the crooner period of standards. I diplomatically noted how impressive he was for having embraced a wider audience. Yeah, me, too. I'm better in my dreams.
  7:53pm Jett:

That 12 inch of "Miss You" was on pink coloured vinyl, I still have mine.
  7:54pm Dean:

Whim Gimmick...

Doug? Doug?...

I dreamt the Beatles were spending the night at our house. They all wore matching red long johns and were climbing on the furniture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Haha, the cover picture on that Dolly 12" is awesome. She's so great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm melinda:

@chresti: You're just anticipating my British beat group show, starting in 2 minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Therese:

@Wendy it's on pink vinyl!
  7:58pm Dean:

The one bit of advice I can offer about optimizing router performance is to change the default channels assigned to the networks if you're in a neighborhood dense with wi-fi networks. Worked for me.
