You're ON! Spring into action!

Hi Fiveash!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:03pm glenn:

hey matt, i don't know if amanda told you, but i thought of a great band name for you - country joe and the fi(vea)sh.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:03pm listener james from westwood:

good afternoon matt and matt and everyone else who is not a mat!

Time to deliver an ass-kicking to love, Matt 5
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:03pm Matt from Springfield:

The Shangri-Las don't ignore the perils and dangers of love! Then again characters have a high mortality rate in their songs in any event...

@Matt Did you ever end up spinning records at Daddy's on (Fat) Tuesday.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:05pm Matt from Springfield:

BUDDY! This is a nice song, and great vocal! Shame this has to be a "rarity"!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:06pm Matt F:

Hey Nate- the axed me but I was getting back from outta town a little too late. Glenn, I like it better than the MC5ash or the Dave Clark Fiveash.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:07pm glenn:

i'm gonna guess - is this ernie hawkins?
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:07pm glenn:

i should have waited for the playlist to pop up.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:08pm Matt F:

Good guess, though!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:08pm Dervish:

The glory of Fiveash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:09pm Stanley:

The Glory of Love - nice to hear this sung properly, have only been familiar with Joseph Spence's version until now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:10pm Parq:

Hey, Matt. This version of "You Belong" kills me. Most versions of this song do, actually.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:13pm Matt F:

A collective hello to everyone here!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:14pm Dominick:

Hello there
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:14pm Matt from Springfield:

There's No Other Like The Crystals! Well, except when they recorded under singers under The Crystals' name. Bad example.

KILLIN' it, Matt!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, good segue from Spector!
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:15pm Ralph and Susan (UK):

yay the Saints. Better than the priginal
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:16pm Matt F:

Hey RSUK. Agreed! Best version ever waxed!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:19pm Matt from Springfield:

YEAH, classic Them!
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:19pm Kristin:

Oh hello!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:20pm Matt F:

OMG Kristin! Feel free to pitch for the WCBN fundraiser on my playlist.
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:20pm Kristin:

Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:22pm Matt F:

I've never typed the letters "OMG" in my life, that's how excited I am!
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:25pm Kristin:

Well, OK you all. Perhaps you've heard of WCBN. We are in Ann Arbor.
Please support all non-commercial radio. You can pledge to us by calling 734-763-3500 or opening your interweb to wcbn.org.
Today from 3pm-5:30pm the tag team of David and Pascal will attempt to raise at least $666. If they succeed, they will wax their bellies. The more they raise after that, the more they will wax off. Live on the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:25pm Holly in NC:

Hello Matt F & everyone -
Happy V-day (or not), depending on your mood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:26pm Nate K:

Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:26pm Matt F:

Kristin, That's a 7 Secoond Delay-esque stunt worthy of Station Manager Ken's alma mater...
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly!
Remember that "VD Is For Everybody"! ;) At least one DJ must play that a year! (Marty McSorley did the honor on Tuesday, so this station's covered)
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:30pm Kristin:

Matt, it has its own FB event. You all, please invite yoursevles!
Of course, if you're not into such contrived theatrics, you can pledge anytime through this Sunday. I'm on tomorrow (Friday,) 3pm-5:30.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Smoky bed today!
Speaking of which, don't smoke in bed, it's very dangerous...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:31pm S.A. from S.F.:

Anyone up for Billy Bragg's "Valentine's Day Is Over"?
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:33pm Kristin:

PLEASE do the rest of the show in that voice.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:34pm Katya Oddio:

Excellent voice over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:34pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Matt (ress Spring.) - I always smoke in bed, because I quit almost 10 years ago so, like last night, I merely DREAMED that I was smoking... FEH.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:35pm Mattress from Springfield:

@SA: As long as there's no flame ;)
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kristin: At work now, but I'll drop something in your tip jar this evening.
Support all the independent radio you can!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:40pm S.A. from S.F.:

San Francisco has nothing like WFMU, or WCBN, or any of the many other awesome more-or-less free-form stations in the nation, so I am, perforce, forced to support independent radio WHERE I can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:40pm Stanley:

This Nina Simone sounds very pub-piano (sacrilage to say that I know...but)
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:43pm Matt F:

Nah, you're right. But in a good way I think...
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: That's exactly true--KUSF once had downtown range, but that of course was yanked out from underneath them.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:46pm Sealy Posturpedic:

All bed music, all the time. That is my demand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:48pm Stanley:

This show is really doing it for me.
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:48pm bushwood bob:

syreeta from the townships?
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:48pm glenn:

but san francisco does have the freak, and anchor steam. and michael douglas and karl malden together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:49pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Matt - And besides that, as good as KUSF could be on the modern stuff, they never seemed to have anything like Matt Fiveash's show. No moldy oldies.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:49pm Matt F:

BB- Dunno. Stevie Wonder protege and maybe girlfriend/wife?
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:50pm Matt F:

Tanx Stanley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:50pm S.A. from S.F.:

But we DO have The Giants, so there IS that.
  Thu. 2/14/13 2:51pm Kristin:

and Dirty Harry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:53pm S.A. from S.F.:

It doesn't matter -- I'm trading it all for The Mariners and KEXP.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: "Matt Fiveash's classic rock: like Classic Rock, only...better."

The important thing is that Matt has a very well *curated* show--playing the cuts that most "moldy oldies" don't include and is far more eclectic in this area than any playlist-based station.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:54pm glenn:

ha! the mariners don't even have ichiro anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:57pm S.A. from S.F.:

Don't get the wrong impression, Matt -- I'm not denigrating this show by referring to its music as "moldy oldies" -- that's just an ironic thingie.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:58pm Matt F:

I take "moldy oldies" as the highest compliment, don't worry!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 2:58pm glenn:

mafrospring - classic rock IS oldies radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 2:58pm Holly in NC:

Syreeta was from Pittsburgh, moved to Detroit & worked at Motown where she met & was briefly married to Stevie W. He produced her great solo 1972 lp after their divorce, that's a good working relationship!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:00pm Holly in NC:

Great Skip Spence btw - thanks Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:00pm S.A. from S.F.:

@glenn - No, but they do have the highest-paid pitcher in baseball, now. And I'm pretty sure that Tim Lincecum will be traded to them before July 31st.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:00pm Matt F:

Hey Holly! Yer welcome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:02pm S.A. from S.F.:

Wow, it's true -- this Skip Spence thing is incredible!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

"Suicidal heartbreak songs" were earlier today -- on the Dark Night of the Soul Valentine's special with Mike Sin :)
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:04pm glenn:

i don't know. i don't follow either of them that closely, but i can't see lincecum going anywhere if the giants are in contention, and most baseball writers have picked them to be the n.l. champs again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:06pm Holly in NC:

Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:06pm glenn:

there is no such thing as too much james carr.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: Don't worry, I get what you were saying.
@glenn: Well, capitalized "Classic Rock" and "Oldies"--industry-forged genres, microtargeted to slightly diff demogs. Mafrospring???...
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:06pm glenn:

ooops. except that's otis. once again i should have waited for the playlist.
  Thu. 2/14/13 3:09pm Alf from Upstate:

I am having a very good time listening to this excellent radio show. It is fun and pleasurable.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:09pm Doug Schulkind:

What Alf said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:10pm Artie:

Dig it, Alfster.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:10pm Matt F:

Hey Doug- just now remembered to make the playlist "live"! Oopsie...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:11pm S.A. from S.F.:

@glenn - Lincecum is in a contract year, coming off a very bad year, He's a Seattle boy, working with a Seattle trainer. The Giants have made no move to keep him in SF beyond this year. 'Nuff said.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:15pm Doug Schulkind:

You rose from the dead, Matt. It's a day for roses after all.

This Bobby Charles is yum. Not sure I've ever heard him at this languorous a tempo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:15pm S.A. from S.F.:

This track makes me feel lazy and good...
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

The Bobby Charles is nice--yum, even.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:16pm Doug Schulkind:

In Spanish, Matt from Springfield, it's muy yum!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:17pm Matt F:

Yeah Doug, appropriate for one of the languorousest voices in all of music.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:17pm Matt F:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:17pm Holly in NC:

Languorous. THAT is the tempo of my day! NOT lazy, procrastinating. wasting time ...languorous. Enjoyment. Yes ;-)
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:17pm glenn:

nice palindrome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:19pm S.A. from S.F.:

Mucho delicioso!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:19pm glenn:

buck followed by wynn. good choice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:19pm Stanley:

By now I'm normally tuning into Fabio on the main channel but not tonight, no siree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:20pm S.A. from S.F.:

Even better than the Nick Lowe cover that I heard first.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:22pm Matt F:

I love the Nick Lowe version. Had to flip a coin to figure out which one to play...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:24pm Holly in NC:

Y'know what's a really good song? Jimmie Dale Gilmore's "When The Nights Are Cold". Just mentioning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:24pm S.A. from S.F.:

O holy crap, this John Prrine & Iris Dement number is INCREDIBLE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:25pm Stanley:

Isn't this Ramones track being played at the wrong speed?
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:25pm glenn:

holly, you know what else is a good jimmie dale gilmore song? everything he's ever done, except maybe mack the knife.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:27pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - very, very true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:28pm S.A. from S.F.:

Stanley, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:29pm Holly in NC:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:30pm Stanley:

@ SA - just kiddin', just I'm not used to them at anything less than breakneck speed.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:31pm glenn:

i would like to point out that jimmie dale's looking a lot like riff raff these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:32pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - i need pictures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:33pm Artie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:34pm Holly in NC:

This (Falcons) one of best songs of all time.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:35pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:35pm Stanley:

I agree, this track is quite amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:36pm Holly in NC:

@Artie & @Glenn - so relieved! I was thinking "hip hop" (note quotes) Riff Raff, not Rocky Horror!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:37pm glenn:

please. as if there could ever be another riff raff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:37pm Artie:

Yes, Holly, yes. And Butch Hancock now resembles DMX.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:38pm Stanley:

Matt - you're smokin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:39pm Holly in NC:

@Artie - if I can't get tea out of my keyboard, may charge you for making me spit ;-)
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:39pm ndbob:

.. and back for the list few minutes - Hi Matt and everyone!
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:40pm Matt F:

No, I quit smokin'! Hi Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:42pm Holly in NC:

It's NOT out of realm of possibility, though..

ios that riff raff or dmx? glenn not know "rappers".
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, this isn't the original one...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:55pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - that w/b riff raff, you can see my confusion. dmx is very big and very black & very bald , which is why artie's quip was so funny.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 3:55pm Matt F:

Sure isn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/13 3:55pm Holly in NC:

This slays the original!

Maybe I'm just intoxicated by the theme but this has been one most enjoyable show. Thanks Matt.

Hasta la vista.

Hard to believe she is the same Sylvia Robinson who would found Sugar Hill Records, create the Sugar Hill Gang, and produce classics like "The Message" and "Rapper's Delight". RIP, Godmother of Hip Hop.
Avatar Thu. 2/14/13 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: I was amazed to hear that when she passed--truly a great of music, on the producing and singing sides!
