you know it! (also, you guys are probably all over this already, but there's some choice DDD synth bass/dx7 on Donald Fagen's "the nightfly"!)
  Tue. 12/4/12 12:59am neil:

wuz mike post married to markie post from night court?
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:08am tg:

"I.G.Y." from the nightfly used to be the standard "test song" for hi-fi home digital audio systems... i would also argue that roger nichols (steely dan/fagen's producer) had a lot to do with smooth studio values in the 80s-- "Hey Nineteen" from Gaucho (1980) was the first track ever(!) to use drum replacement, which would become standard practice from there on out. (forgive me for these comments- i'm writing an ethnomusicology seminar paper on the Dan right now!) anyway, keep up the smooth sounds guys!
Avatar Tue. 12/4/12 1:10am Nat:

HOLY SHIT. Ummm....TG. EMAIL ME. Let's talk. For real.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:10am Kurt V:

tg, thanks for sharing that information.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:14am Kurt V:

i'm feeling the cosmic connections being made between all of us through the smooth smooth air waves tonight. do you?
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:16am Susan:

Oh, I'm such a buzz kill! WFMU is my go to for sounds for the past couple of decades, but...no! I lived this (painfully) the first go round. No irony. Nothing good to say about it. In 30 years when someone's telling you how good Justin Bieber is, get back to me.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:16am Emile:

Nat is the inspiration
Avatar Tue. 12/4/12 1:17am Nat:

Alex ALREADY thinks Justin Bieber is good!
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:18am Kurt V:

I agree. Justin Bieber has some great songs. I wonder if I will like him in 30 years.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:21am Susan:

Good for Alex. Seriously, I understand revisionism, but not Peter Cetera. And I'm sorry I dissed Bieber; I don't actually know his songs. I'm glad you guys like him. This show just kinda made me very, very sad. But I'm a middle aged mom, and you guys aren't, so I'll leave you to your fun :)
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:23am Kurt V:

Nat, you need to pull this show back up.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:25am neil:

yeah i wuz wrong about mike & markie post being married. just wonderin aloud (she wuz on fall guy too re same era) theme to terms ov endearment? (not a question) as the media is all reflective, themes to imagees of thee time. slow down an b distracted by ur emotions. no longer is religion the only opied ov thee masses.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:26am pete:

Disagree. Cetera had some good tunes. "Glory of Love" being one and the second single from that album "Next Time I Fall" was great too. I'm not being ironic.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:26am Emile:

I'm a middle aged Dad
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:33am neil:

what wuz ironic about chicago wuz in the video for stay the night peter cetera is wearing a bauhaus t shirt for bela lugosis dead. dont know how he pulled that off.
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:33am Bill Craig:

Hey Guys,
The Pina Colada Song was Rupert Holmes, not Jimmy Buffett but otherwise rock on....
  Tue. 12/4/12 1:36am tg:

thanks for the shout out ! agreed about the whiteness/maleness of smooth music/yacht rock... interesting to think about quiet storm as a kind of black alternative. and of course all those awesome early 80s prelude 12"s!
Avatar Tue. 12/4/12 1:43am Nat:

We're about to play your music, Bill! Trueeeee on that Bauhaus bit, Neil!
  Tue. 12/4/12 2:38am Bill Craig:

Player from Liverpool I believe. So Hall and Oates/Pablo Cruise not Beatles...
  Tue. 12/4/12 10:36am senor personas:

Was anyone else enjoying that 1994 song? I was.
  Tue. 12/4/12 11:51am Patrick:

haha this is excellent
