  Sun. 12/18/11 12:18am Joe D:

man that Joe Cuba track on the Crooklyn soundtrack?! Why do I not remember that song from the movie?

The world needs an all-latin-boogaloo soundtracked Hood movie

maybe I'll just re-score New Jersey Drive
  Sun. 12/18/11 12:19am Joe McG:

Go to it, Joe! Subway Joe!
  Sun. 12/18/11 12:20am slugluv1313:

@ Joe D. -- if i remember correctly, "El Pito" is playing while the two little girsl are in the bodega . . .
  Sun. 12/18/11 12:22am Joe McG:

Dueling trombones!
  Sun. 12/18/11 12:22am kbp:

Que buen comienzo Joe!!!!! Fiesta!!!!!
  Sun. 12/18/11 12:25am Joe McG:

  Sun. 12/18/11 12:55am slugluv1313:

soooooooooulllllful!!!!! me likey :)
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

Irwin, how could you sell out like that in the 70s??!!!!

Hey Joe! Hey everyone! Seasons be greeted!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! I can say for sure that our Irwin had nothing to do with this duck.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:13am Matt from Springfield:

Rick Dees however, was on the Meatballs soundtrack: I used to think he was singing "be bold", actually it was the title track "Meatballs". Is there anything else you know Rick Dees did?
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:14am Joe D:

what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:14am Matt from Springfield:

One time on BT's show someone was suggesting (sarcastic or otherwise) to pull out the "Mr Mom" soundtrack! WHAT was on that movie OST anyway?! It makes me think of the Meatballs soundtrack, same era, same lack of Huge-name stars.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:15am Bill Murray the K:

"Star Wars........Those crazy STAR WARS...!"
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:18am Joe McG:

I loved that bit. Made Bill M. a star.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

Nat Roe didn't draw the line--I in fact first heard the most nauseating snippet of that from his Reverse Adult Contemporary Chartsweep!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

Aw crap! Missed Millie by one song! I'll just have to pull her out later!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:23am Joe McG:

@Matt: Ha ha ha! I think Millie would LOVE to be pulled out later.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 12/18/11 1:27am LDF:

There's too many comps people need to get me for Christmas.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

Maybe a VampiSoul gift certificate? They've been releasing great albums lately.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:34am chris m:

really liked that m. ashraf song. oh you're playing my jam now - the boat that i row!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:35am Joe McG:

@Matt and LDF: This Iranian thing is really great, right up there with Pomegranates from last year...Hey, Chris M.!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

Redbone! And topical early 70s voodoo interests!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:39am LDF:

Good recommendation MFS
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

@LDF: I just wish they sold VampiSoul (and Subliminal Frequencies) gift certificates along with the Starbucks and Amazon certificates you see for sale everywhere.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 12/18/11 1:44am Adam:

Joe -- longtime listener of WFMU, first time listener of your show. Totally digging it.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:46am Joe McG:

Thanks, Adam! Welcome!
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

322-6809...which area code?
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:47am LDF:

I like this three song span going back in time
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:51am Adam:

Holy crap, this Squeeze song. Now I'm just mad I haven't been listening to this show forever.
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:56am Joe D:

so McG when you gonna break out the Greg Kihn Band
  Sun. 12/18/11 1:57am Joe McG:

@Joe D: I did pretty recently, actually! Played a 45 of "Roadrunner"!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

Hmm, that was a TOTALLY different B-side to "I Feel Love"--the older Donna style without the Moroder touches.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:06am Matt from Springfield:

"Before Wayne Newton, we heard Devo"
That is a mark of radio quality!!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:09am Julie:

Joe has on Santa as a live guest next week!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

Will he stay for a few questions and maybe spin a favorite 45, if Joe leaves some really great cookies out?
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:13am Julie:

A Santa's Single File! Sweet!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:15am LDF:

Love this Flamingos song. I always forget how psychedelic it is...
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:17am Matt from Springfield:

The Flamingos! 1959 was an important shift in the sensuality of makeout music--this heavy cover of "I Only Have Eyes For You", all the stuff by the Fleetwoods, the cover of "It's All In The Game"...a chapter in a music history book awaits!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:19am Matt from Springfield:

I've been searching for that rainbow too, all over the glorious MGM musicals! I can never get over it!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:21am Matt from Springfield:

Thought this was familiar! So long since I've seen Andy K and Danny D on that show!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:21am Julie:

how come all the drivers on Taxi were American?
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:21am Adam:

Oh, "Angela." This really is a beautiful track. It's a shame how overlooked some of these older TV tracks are as genuinely great pieces of music. I'm looking your way, George Aliceson Tipton.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:22am Joe McG:

George Tipton! Great arranger.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:23am Mike Sin:

That "Rangarang: Pre-Revolutionary Iranian Pop" comp proves that booze, cars, scantily clad women, and other great US-cultural exports can produce some awesome results.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:24am Mike Sin:

re: "Theme from Taxi"
"Goodnight Mr. Walters!"
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:25am Joe McG:

Mr. Walters: Ugh....
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:25am Julie:

Mr. Walters:Grumble
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:26am Julie:

boy talk about your flashback. Now I'm going to get all sniffly over Andy
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:27am Joe McG:

"I trusted you, I trusted you, I trusted you..."
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:27am Matt from Springfield:

@Adam: Older TV music can be pretty wonderful: Johnny Pearson was across the pond, but he did some amazing themes for British TV in the 70s.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:31am Adam:

@Matt: I am happy to check him out!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:38am Julie:

How about little Johnny Williams and the theme from Lost in Space
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:40am Adam:

@Julie: And I might be remembering this wrong, but I believe he also played piano on the "Peter Gunn" theme...
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

Good country song! And, it fits the Christmas season!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:42am Julie:

Peter Gunn!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:47am LDF:

I love the Bats. Daddy's Highway is a good album too.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:47am Matt from Springfield:

Oh, is this a NEW new album by the Bats? I like them, and pretty much anything Flying Nun!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:48am Joe McG:

@Matt: Yep, brandie-new Bats!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:49am Julie:

oooh this is great...
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:49am LDF:

Wow, that means the Bats' singer has a truly distinctive voice, if this is him in 2011. Great.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:50am Joe McG:

@LDF: Yes, Robert Scott, ever youthful!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:54am Julie:

I don't remember which one was Bats, I think I was going crazy for the Crystal Stilts..there was something almost Moody Blues about it. Or maybe I'm just half asleep and having Hayward dreams
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:55am Joe McG:

Julie, stop lusting after Moody Blues' members.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:56am Julie:

It's okay, I've got room in my heart for Justin AND Ray Davies.
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:57am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everybody!
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:58am Julie:

thanks Joe. See you on Christmas Eve! Start making those cookies for Santa
  Sun. 12/18/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

As I'm going to be out next week, Merry Christmas in advance Joe! Good Virgin Insanity choice!

Have a good night everyone!
