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.

Back when I worked in the music department at a major chain bookstore, there was an unstable balloon clown who would come in regularly and buy nothing but Lou Monte CDs. He eventually literally exhausted the warehouse's supply.

Hey Uncle Michael! Just checking in to say hello. I'm busy writing, but I'm listening and enjoying the show. Hope you're doing well.

Barclay James Harvest's "Suicide" ends with the sound of the rush of air as the protagonist falls from a highrise, and then...silence.

Suicide...or was he pushed?

I used to LOVE Laura Cantrell's show on FMU, The Radio Thrift Shop (still up in the archives, I believe). I'll date myself, used to listen to her before that, on WKCR, where she did a country music show. Just noticed the Honkey Tonk Country Girl show, haven't had a chance to check it out. Do love UM's country sets, as said by others here.

@doctorjazz - ditto on the early Laura listening...
  Fri. 10/20/17 11:26am Dean:

They sang it night after night in concert, so of course it didn't happen. But the song was delivered from the victim's perspective, hence the silence that coincides with his arrival upon the sidewalk.

Been collecting Laura Cantrell records since hearing them on this station. A happy discovery.
