  Tue. 6/7/11 12:11pm yair yona (tel aviv, Earth):

yea. we're all here.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:15pm kamikaze:

I'll be spotlighting the music Martin Rushent produced for the better part of today's show, starting at 12:30!
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:17pm Steve metz:

Looking forward to some great tunes. Martin was a great producer and a big influence on me as a producer and musician.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:21pm Joe:

Dammit I walk away from my desk for just a few minutes and you play VoiVod
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:24pm Joe:

I honestly didn't even know about Martin's passing. I was just reading Human Leagues Wiki entry yesterday
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:35pm Droll:

I listened to this T-Rex CD just last week and I assure you the LP over FM sounds a zillion times better than the hi-fi version.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:50pm Steve metz:

Yea Rezillos
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:51pm Cheri Pi:

Love the Rezillos!
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:54pm Mark Watkins:

Great tribute Diane/WFMU. Mark (Reading, UK)
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:57pm jljl:

It's the best of late 70's UK punk.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:58pm Joe:

Wonderful set
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:58pm Cecile:

he always had a great sound - raw, but not out of control.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:58pm Cheri Pi:

These bands were the soundtrack to my teen years.
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:59pm Cecile:

kept the essence of the band
  Tue. 6/7/11 12:59pm andymorphic:

second that....great tribute....i don't want to go to lunch
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:02pm kwhitehead:

what Cheri Pi said.

Ah, nostalgia.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:03pm Carmichael:

I love whistley guitar leads!
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:04pm andymorphic:

this is precisely why i love diane and wfmu. putting all this music into perspective like this. really caring. i LOVE IT!
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:06pm Cecile:

1978 was one of the great recording years, I think.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:13pm andymorphic:

everything i love musically was born in this era
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:15pm Carmichael:

Oh man, Ian Gomm!
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:15pm Cecile:

It was an important year.
And a great single from Ian Gomm...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:17pm Carmichael:

The sax nails down the timeline.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:18pm Cecile:

Oh, yeah. The "bad sax" era.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:21pm andymorphic:

the dr who sound track of this era are amazing
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:21pm Jeff D:

Trouser Press had an article back in the day on the Class of 77. What a class...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:30pm Cheri Pi:

OH mah gawd-I haven't heard this Member' song in decades!!!
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:32pm Cecile:

me either, Cheri. That was a big favorite on Radios in Motion in Detroit in the early 80s.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:32pm Cecile:

this horn section also dates the track.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:32pm Cecile:

Not the horn section, the arrangement...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:33pm Cheri Pi:

The Haircut 100 Horn section... that I love so much.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:34pm Cecile:

Oh, yeah. That kind of brittle Afro-jazz feel. I certainly enjoyed it and still enjoy it. but that says 1980-82 like nothing else...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:36pm Droll:

Hazel O'Connor has more than a touch of Russel Mael in her voice.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:40pm Cecile:

the first NME I ever was able to buy had Altered Images as their cover story after they'd won their NME Best New Band award.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:44pm postmanpaul:

A Treat to hear Claire Grogan again, Diane. Your playlist reminding me of a wonderful John Peel show.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:49pm king penguin:

is there a radio edit of Peaches. It's sort of a standard, where they playing something naughty (other than the theme) all this time?>
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:50pm Cheri Pi:

What is naughty about the Peaches song? I've heard it a thousand times.. is it an English vernacular?
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:50pm Cecile:

Pete Shelley was the first "new wave" show I ever saw at St. Andrew's Hall. He played guitar along for a tape maching and played Homosapien twice.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:51pm Cecile:

he didn't have a lot of solo material, and refused to play Buzzcocks songs.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:51pm Cecile:

homosapien is still a great song, though
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:52pm Cheri Pi:

Poor Pete Shelley! lolz...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:52pm glenn:

to this day, magazine is still the loudest show i ever saw. also possibly the best.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:52pm kamikaze:

Peaches is too suggestive. The FCC is funniest about the sex stuff, unfortunately. When Hugh was here in October, he offered to play it, and I had to decline. Our copy here at the station says DO NOT PLAY all over it! :(
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:53pm glenn:

even though john mcgeoch had been replaced by robin simon. still great.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:54pm king penguin:

That's what im asking, why it cant be played. But i always thought, perhaps, incorrectly, that "peaches" was reference a little more specific than jjust pretty girls.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:55pm Cecile:

It's not the peaches - it's the whole less than implied oral sex stuff.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:55pm Cecile:

I've heard worse on the top forty, for sure.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:55pm glenn:

ya think?
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:56pm Steve Metz:

Saw the Yachts back in the day great live band.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:56pm Cecile:

For sure! Baby Got Back, for one.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:56pm Cheri Pi:

I thought there was a thickly accented curse word in there-had no idea that suggestivity was so strict.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:56pm dc pat:

ho jeeze that's ridiculous. You're right Cecile, my daughter listens to an awful radio station here in dc and it's WAY worse than most of the stuff in my collection
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:56pm king penguin:

Wow. "Suggestive"? That would encompass everything.
I was a big Stranglers fan until i saw them. Keyboard driven bands dont work live for me.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:57pm glenn:

that hugh cornwell show was excellent. i've listened to the archive of it a few times.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:57pm Cecile:

I think they freaked out back in the 70s, and it's still a carryover...

Hell, tonight's the night is as bad. I always said that popular bands got away with a lot more than underground band.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:58pm Cheri Pi:

They barely bleep out the Eff word on my bad Clear Channel Metal in the car station...
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:58pm Cecile:

anyway, later taters. Gotta grab some food.

*homer simpson voice* stupid FCC.
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:58pm glenn:

rod stewart's tonight's the night or neil young's tonight's the night?
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:59pm Cheri Pi:

laters!
  Tue. 6/7/11 1:59pm dc pat:

my daughter asked me the other day "What's S&M?" and she's been listening to VU for years...
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:00pm king penguin:

i was once getting my hair cut and they had on some mainstream disco type station. Homo Sapien came on. Loud andd rocking. Best haircut of the decade.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:00pm kamikaze:

Thing is, the minimum FCC fine nowadays is $500,000. That would break WFMU. Other stations will play things and take their chances and take the fine. None of it is automatic, it's by chance, just here not worth the risk
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:02pm glenn:

john wing - "my daughter asked me what oral sex was, and i had to say - i'm not sure, ask your mother."
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:03pm Steve Metz:

I remember buying everyone of these records when they came out. Still have em. Martin was a busy guy.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:04pm Cheri Pi:

Hi Steve!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:04pm paula:

seconds...diane, thank you.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:04pm Steve Metz:

Hey
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:05pm Cheri Pi:

I can't believe how big a Human League fan I am after all these years...
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:06pm Doodle:

FMA is broken : /
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:09pm Steve Metz:

Hey Glen I would agree with you on Magazine being one of the best shows ever. Right up there with The Cramps and Robert Fripp Frippertronics.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:10pm kamikaze:

I'm not having any issues with the FMA.... try it again ?
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:11pm Cheri Pi:

Magazine are getting back together, is that right?
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:12pm Stevel:

Wow. What an imprint left by Mr.Rushent. Great show.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:12pm Steve Metz:

Yes They did a tour recently.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:14pm Chris from DC:

Magazine. Realy? Whoa.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:16pm Cheri Pi:

I must see Howard Devoto in person once before I die.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:17pm slugluv1313:

awesome show/tribute to Mr. Martin Rushent, Diane -- THANK YOU!!!!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:18pm king penguin:

i agree. Lovely..
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:18pm northguineahills:

I love the Altered Images vocalist's Scottish accent (Glaswegian?).
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:18pm Merry:

Hi I'm listening from California. Is Sun Araw going to play live in studio? Love your show!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:22pm Upcoming at WFMU:

Merry, the Sun Araw session is Thursday morning on Jason Sigal's show between 9am and noon east coast time.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:26pm Jennique:

I just finished watching the BBC documentary series SYNTH BRITANNIA on youtube and fell in love with Phil Oakey and Human League all over again. Sad to hear about Martin Rushent. Thanks for playing HL. I would have loved to have seen them with Klaus Nomi and Joan Jett! Lucky you!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:27pm Merry:

Thank you for the info!! The guitarist/beat guy is my son.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:33pm jeremy:

i loved belinda carlisle when i was a kid. heaven on earth cassette played endlessly
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:38pm Steve Metz:

What I love about Martins productions is that every instrument has it's space. The early 70's was the day of the muddy mixdown and poor mastering. martin solved it
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:40pm Joe:

Not one to pay attention to producers until later in life. Never realized how much he had his fingers dipped in. It explains a lot of sub conscious association in my mind though.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:42pm slugluv1313:

HOMICIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gotta turn the volume ALLLLLLLL the way up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS AGAIN, DIANE!!!!!!!!! and THANK YOU, MR. MARTIN RUSHENT FOR ALL THIS AMAZING MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:46pm Steve Metz:

Black and White I so love this record
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:50pm kamikaze:

B/W is my fave Stranglers disc!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:51pm Jennique:

Love this song - DONT YOU WANT ME! Love that it is quoted on the Young Ones frequently in jest as well.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:52pm bill:

Remember sitting and watching MTV for hours and hours waiting for something good to come on?
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:53pm dc pat:

..and then all you'd get for your troubles was Psych Furs, X, and just MAYBE Devo...
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:53pm schizflow:

i don't get the joke here. is there a joke?
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:54pm dc pat:

BUZZCOCKS!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:56pm Jennique:

Oh boy, haven't listened to the Buzzcocks in a while. Saw them when they played Knitting Factory a while back and was screaming this song. Yay Pete Shelley!
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:56pm bill:

I kept hoping for a PIL. Never happened of course.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:56pm efd:

Great show. Diane! You can just leave all these records in a corner somewhere so I can easily find them tomorrow night! :)
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:56pm paula:

@bill -- from 1981-1983, there was almost always something like this stuff on MTV...a beautiful thing
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:57pm Joe:

Great Show! Wonderful Tribute
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:58pm Steve Metz:

Great Show Diane
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:58pm paula:

there's no love inside the icehouse...
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:58pm bill:

@paula - that's exactly the time I'm talking about... but I'm glad you lked it.
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:59pm Martha:

Wonderful work Diane- thanks! - and this is also one of my fav Stranglers tracks (though it is so hard to choose) -
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:59pm Steve Metz:

This song still sends chills up and down my spine
  Tue. 6/7/11 2:59pm paula:

i saw "Public iMAAAGGGee" somewhat often...
  Tue. 6/7/11 3:00pm postmanpaul:
