Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

this song has a different tone than that Eagles one

wabc is my first radio memories
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/30/17 2:09pm joe:

that and there was an AM station that played 30's to Wartime era music that my grandfather listened to.

Your show is like balm for my soul today. Thanks again, UM. Howdy everybody! Happy summer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:12pm Uncle Michael:

Did someone mention Bobby Bare?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:13pm doctorjazz:

The wartime music was probably WNEW AM, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:13pm Uncle Michael:

Glad I can bee balm, Marie.
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:15pm Lane Gray:

Just like Roger Miller, I like Bobby better on his serious stuff (Dropping Out of Sight For a While is a GREAT song that nobody remembers)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/30/17 2:16pm jmd:

Dang! Spooky version of LBV with a backbeat. Eeep!
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:17pm Lane Gray:

Her cousin is 8 bars late... (one if her cousins sang most of her harmonies, which probably helped that amazing blend)

Sammi Smith was cool

Uncle Michael!
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:18pm Marie:

One of my fave Dolly songs. Lovely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:19pm Uncle Michael:

Dolly just made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:19pm Lane Gray:

I retract the cousin statement. I didn't look at the list, I was positive that was Tammy. Oops. Sammi Jewel Smith was amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:20pm melinda:

What a great song. I first heard it sung by an English folk group on Micah's show, was surprised when I looked it up and saw it was a Dolly song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:21pm Uncle Michael:

I love this David Gates song.

Who knew 1974 was such a rich year for C/W B-sides?
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:25pm The Oscar:

Country from this era has always seemed like the essence of summer to me. Which is odd, as I'm a lifelong New Englander who wasn't yet born at the time, but somehow the association is ironclad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:30pm Stanley:

Back from the pub, a couple of pints the better. Half an hour of Hinky left followed by Shelia B. It doesn't get much better than this.
Time to rock? You betcha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:30pm Uncle Michael:

Oscar!
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:30pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hello Uncle Michael! I just tuned in. I notice you're playing all music from 1974.
That's when I came out, too!
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:31pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Oh look, this Golden Earring song was released five days after my date of birth...
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:31pm Dean:

Wanted to find a record for the guy who likes fake audience noise, so I hunted down laugh tracks at Discogs. No luck, but I did find this. Note the opening act. http://bit.ly/2tyBXzF

Golden freakin' Earring!

  Fri. 6/30/17 2:34pm Alex in Illinois:

Remember the Simpsons episode with Rader Love while Bart is driving? I think I saw the end of that one last night on FXX
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:35pm The Oscar:

@Alex It was indeed on last night-- so great! The song also features prominently in Baby Driver, which I heartily endorse if anyone's thinking about seeing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/30/17 2:35pm Jeff Golick:

Man, Golden Earring was around for much longer than I imagined...
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:35pm Wilson:

Did guitar lead lines peak in '74?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:36pm Uncle Michael:

Jeff, they were around for ever but I have something in the last set by a band that gives them a run for the money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:36pm hyde:

@JG according to the wikipedias, all of the guys who are in Golden Earring now have been in the band since 1970?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/30/17 2:36pm listener james from westwood:

ELO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:37pm Stanley:

This track is so wonderful
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:38pm hyde:

yeah, i'm not the hugest ELO fan, but I love this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:38pm Uncle Michael:

Gonna run a little long (these specials always do).
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:39pm Alex in Illinois:

In 1974, I think I still considered Country, Disco, Funk and everything else played on KSLQ to be "rock".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:39pm hyde:

really, i like Eldorado a lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/30/17 2:39pm listener james from westwood:

Aaaaaaah, there's the other half of my youthful jukebox obsession! :D
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:41pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Oh my goodness, this set is so excellent. It's like my childhood am radio has reproduced itself into my headphones.
ELO! Wings!
I'm bummed I have to leave in a few minutes to go interview a motorcycle shop owner. It'll be fun, but this is also fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 2:42pm Uncle Michael:

Wendy, I've been doing a year-by-year, '70s thing.
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:43pm Alex in Illinois:

All of the members of Golden Earing are still alive!
Amazing.
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:43pm The Oscar:

I like to imagine an alternate universe where Band on the Run was made into a movie starring the actors on the cover.
Avatar Fri. 6/30/17 2:43pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Good to know! I'll have to check the archives. I haven't been in the newsroom much on Fridays, so I miss the fun as it happens. But..archives!
  Fri. 6/30/17 2:45pm Dean:

Bingo!

1974 is pretty wonderful. WFMU can kiss my ass.

Go in funky and go out funky.
That's good to me.

I think the Poppies number in the Wiz borrowed a piece of this.
  Fri. 6/30/17 3:04pm Dean:

Well, let's see, Metal Machine Music was '75, so I'm stumped.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/30/17 3:04pm Stevel:

I was a major radio junkie in 1974. Listened via transistor while delivering the Denver Post. "Already Gone" was the NEW Eagles song.
