Hey ho, DCE and Carmichael! It'll be completely different, yet exactly the same.

By the way, for what it's worth, today's show will be all vinyl.
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 12:10pm listener james from westwood:

Fitting for a time when many still saw "CDs" as an investment vehicle.
  Tue. 10/7/14 12:14pm Dean:

Love this sampler. The Offs, one-of-a-kind.

That lost song was not intended as subliminal messaging -- I swear! Still, as you will have noticed, this week kicks of our October silent marathon. Please do consider helping out if you can!

Well, then, I suppose we'll hear some Alessi Brothers...
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:34pm Tony Coulter:

I'm afraid their invitations got lost in the mail...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/7/14 12:37pm Carmichael:

You're right, I have never heard a song about animal erections.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

One of the advantages of being on the stream....
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

.... is being able to play songs about animal erections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/7/14 12:41pm Carmichael:

"Unknown Gender" pretty much describes most 80's artists.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:42pm still b/p:

So much awful silliness can be cued by the term "animal erection," but I'll say just this: aard-on
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:42pm InBrkly:

Is anybody watching Halt and Catch Fire?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, InBrkly! Speaking for myself, have no idea what that is!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:49pm InBrkly:

It is a tv show scored by Paul Haslinger (Tangerine Dream)
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:50pm Tony Coulter:

Hey all, 'tis v-e-r-y- slow on the pledging front. Do consider helping out station and stream. Any little bit helps and will be greatly appreciated!!!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

And don't let not pledging inhibit you from commenting. Comments are appreciated too!!

"It all started with one tangerine cordial...."
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:52pm InBrkly:

The show is set in 1983 and I've enjoyed it mainly for the tunes.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

Aha! See the connection now. Sounds interesting....
  Tue. 10/7/14 12:53pm Dean:

I'll be there...but later this month.

Thanks, Dean!

Great stuff so far; these cuts could have emerged from no other decade!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James! This particular cut has a bit of Beatles action going on.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

BIG THANKS to Gabriel from Albany, CA for his super-generous pledge! HOORAY for GABRIEL!!

Heya, NGH! It's all about the slack....
  Tue. 10/7/14 1:01pm MrFab:

Listening to this show is somewhat of a strange experience; like I'm a kid again with KROQ on in my room as I'm doing my homework or sumthin.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

Heya. MrFab! KROQ was the station that did that Devo tribute album, no?
  Tue. 10/7/14 1:05pm Dean:

Yes, but KROQ was once upon a time so much more than that. Rodney Bingenheimer's show was ground zero for punk as it emerged, both US and UK.
  Tue. 10/7/14 1:06pm MrFab:

Yes, "Devotees"! Some great stuff on it - 'Are we not clowns, we are Bozo,' another song played on a phone touch-tone...wonder if I still have my copy...
  Tue. 10/7/14 1:06pm Dean:

I remember hearing Devo's first single on Rodney's show, probably the first time it was heard on the West Coast. Bought a copy the next day, and I still have it.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:06pm V Priceless:

wow! Produced by John Cale! great track!
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 1:09pm listener james from westwood:

IN other words re: Russia, nothing has changed.
  Tue. 10/7/14 1:09pm MrFab:

Yeah, I always really liked this record; the b-side is a devolved cover of The Doors' "Unknown Soldier."
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:10pm V Priceless:

this got some decent airplay here in NY back in the day on the local new wave radio station (WLIR/WDRE 0 we couldn't get FMU back then)
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 1:15pm listener james from westwood:

V Priceless, DRE was my go-to before learning about WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:16pm Cecile:

Wow! I only know a handful of these names, and I listened to a lot of Noo Wave radio and read a lot of Trouser Press.

Did the Pups eventually turn into LMNOP. That mag/band used to have a character named Baby Judy.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hi Cecile! Don't think there's a connection between the Pups and LMNOP. Maybe Baby Judy was some kind of doll or sumpin?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:18pm V Priceless:

@ ljfw - LIR/DRE was pretty cool in it's day...had (1) friend who could get FMU in the corner of his basement, back in '81/'82...but that was it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:19pm Cecile:

That could be, Tony.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:20pm northguineahills:

So far, all I've heard before is the Surf Punks and Comateens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:21pm Cecile:

Anyone from Detroit? Remember Radios in Motion and Release the Bats radio shows?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:23pm Tony Coulter:

BIG THANKS to Cecile for her generous pledge!! She sez it's "in honor of New Wave Nation!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:23pm Cecile:

Yeah, I still call myself a "reformed New Waver."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:24pm Cecile:

And you're very welcome.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:25pm V Priceless:

Oh! Got Neo Boys?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

Nope. Sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:27pm Cecile:

that's cool! You never know unless you ask!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

That's one of the many things I miss about being at the station -- can't just run down the hall to pull a record I don't own. (I'm not big on using mp3s for the show, tho it does happen.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:29pm Cecile:

Yay! Carney!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:30pm Cecile:

Okay, here's another one - Oil Tasters?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Them I never even heard of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:32pm Cecile:

They were a noisy trio with squonky sax out of Milwaukee. Much loved there.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

OK, OK -- so maybe I'm straying from the pop. I'll get back to it, I swear....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:33pm Cecile:

Yay! I was going to ask for some Fisk.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Hey! We're past the halfway point of today's show. A few more pledges would be greatly appreciated!!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:34pm northguineahills:

This all sounds like pop to my ears.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:35pm northguineahills:

I found a Steve Fisk cassette at a flea market a few years ago. I was surprised it was on SST records.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Soda pop for the ears....
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:36pm Tony Coulter:

Don't miss the lyrics of this track.....
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 1:36pm Guido from Cologne:

This IS pop!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 1:37pm Cecile:

They put out a Pell Mell album on SST. Then they got picked up by a major for one album.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

@ Guido: I told you we'd be popping again! Greetings Guido!!

Yeah, Guido, the lead singer's voice is really buried in the mix.

Not a fan of Smith's vocals or lyrics, but there's always good guitar in the Cure.

... but from 1980 ...
... yes good mix ... not so much of mr. smith

An theese keyboard-appreccios right now in this song on the show sound like Stranglers somehow.

Also, each special will end with a track that is completely unrelated to the theme. That way, I'm technically still doing freeform!

Max Webster may just appear next week. However, their contract says that if they play, Rush also has to play.

Turning Curious! Produced by Mitch Easter. They were from Champaign, IL. Released on a Detroit label that tried to be the new Slash or IRS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:33pm Cecile:

Of course, since it was based in Detroit, it failed.

Simon Reynolds, who wrote a post-punk book called RIP IT UP AND START AGAIN, could write a completely separate book using this show as a template.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

Only 25 small minutes left to pledge during today's show.... Do it for the cheap (or not-so-cheap) keyboards.
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:37pm Jeff Golick:

(I think Reynolds was mostly looking at UK bands.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:37pm Cecile:

Do it for the New Wave Children!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:38pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Jeff! "Rip Up the Ripped-Up Book"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:39pm Cecile:

the New Wave Children need their checked Vans and their horizontally striped boatneck shirts, and their capri pants!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:40pm Cecile:

they need their posters with randomly floating triangles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:41pm Cecile:

they need tickets for the midnight showing of Eating Raoul!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:41pm Cecile:

they need dippety-do, and long grey thrift shop overcoats!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:42pm Tony Coulter:

Yes! Triangles are essential They can make even James Taylor new wave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:42pm Cecile:

that's right!!!
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:43pm Jeff Golick:

they also need asymmetric triangle sunglasses
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:43pm Cecile:

triangles and weird little streamer tendrils floating around. And Mistral font!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:43pm Cecile:

that's right, Jeff, or barring that Ray-Bans.
  Tue. 10/7/14 2:46pm MrFab:

Don't forget the skinny neckties, preferably an odd color like purple.
  Tue. 10/7/14 2:46pm Dean:

Happy the Man, too. Symphonic Slam and Happy the Man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:47pm Cecile:

Exactly, MrFab!

Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:48pm Tony Coulter:

HUGE THANKS to Mark from Chicago for his generous pledge!! HOORAY!!
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:48pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, Guido, but I couldn't have done it without Tony's help.
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:50pm Guido from Cologne:

It's too late allreydy it seems ... uuuuuh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/7/14 2:50pm Carmichael:

Big Happy the Man fan here.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:52pm Tony Coulter:

Happy the Man may appear next week. I love 'em, but I'm not sure they're AOR at all. I'll look for a track that would fit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:53pm DCE:

who plays on this Mingus track?
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

The parameters for next week are: AOR bands letting their prog side show, or prog band trying to sound commercial.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

@ DCE: Dolphy's in there, for one
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks for a fun show, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:56pm still b/p:

Still have a few skinnies on the tie-rack, including a couple that were decades-old vintage when I bought 'em in the 80s. And I still like 'em. A local place has a long-running eighties night -- maybe I can rock a necktie on the sidelines down there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/7/14 2:56pm DCE:

oh I found it, thanks wikipedia
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:56pm Tony Coulter:

Paul Bley on piano....
  Tue. 10/7/14 2:56pm Dean:

Definitely, then, Gabriel Bondage.
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Roger on GB.
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:58pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks for the New Wavers, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 10/7/14 2:58pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks for tuning in everybody!! See you next week!!
Avatar    Tue. 10/7/14 2:58pm listener james from westwood:

Tremendously enjoyed the throwback, Tony! Many thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/7/14 2:59pm Brian in UK:

Nice one, Tony.

Speaking of Devo and Hurricane Bob, it should be mentioned that the "Hurricane Bob" in question is none other than Devo co-founder Bob Lewis.
