Options November 19, 2014: Annual show dedicated to my high school friend Jim McIntyre, aka Jimmy Mack

Back in October 2006 I dedicated my first show on the regular WFMU weekly schedule to Jim McIntyre, a/k/a Jimmy Mack, who was one of my best friends in high school. That's him kneeling just to the right of center in the photo above, wearing the AC/DC Powerage t-shirt, along with the rest of the staff of WBCN/Boston back in 1978 or so. Jimmy started working there while we were in high school, and before long his passion, dedication and enthusiasm earned him the position of Music Director at the station.

Jimmy was the person who turned me on to a TON of new music that was coming out at the time -- Cheap Trick, The Dictators, The Ramones, The Stranglers, Ultravox, and Television are just a few of the bands that I first heard of because of my friendship with Jimmy. Imagine being in your teens and having a friend turn you on to just ONE of those bands. Now increase that impact tenfold, or more, and you start to get an idea of the importance of Jimmy's friendship. OK, not every band he turned me on to was super-cool -- he gave me the first couple of Foreigner albums, for instance -- but still, Jimmy had a great ear for cool music that wasn't yet -- or, sometimes, ever -- part of the mainstream.

Fortunately for me -- and for you -- that excitement and passion for discovering and sharing new music was matched by his generosity. Nearly every time I saw him he'd present me with a bag of extra (or rejected) promo records from his WBCN job. Many of those records remain favorites of mine to this day.

In the summer of 1985, Jimmy learned he had AIDS. A year later he passed away, at the age of 25. As you can see from the obituary that ran in the Boston Globe he was as generous with his time as he was with records. Regrettably I had lost contact with Jimmy by this time, and didn't hear of his passing until a few years later.

In the fall of 2006 I dedicated my first weekly show on the regular WFMU schedule to Jimmy. I wanted to acknowledge his impact on my life, and especially on my own musical tastes. Since then I've dedicated one of the first shows of the WFMU fall schedule to him, since his influence is never too far from what you hear me play on my show. Thanks for taking a moment to read about him, and thanks for listening to WFMU.

I had just gotten to the Foreigner part of your tribute when "Double Vision" came on. I somehow did not spit my drink out on my keyboard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/19/14 9:18pm Stevel:

Nice! Heard this Foreigner album a lot summer of '78, working at a greenhouse (roses) in West Denver. It was an epic ode to drugs and groupies. Moving, really.

Evening efd and Funketeers. "Double Vision": great classic power-pop tune. Always strikes me as one of those songs were they had the chorus first, and had to figure out what the heck the verse would be. Like most of Duran Duran's songs.

I am ashamed to admin that I am singing along with Foreigner; why do I remember all the lyrics to schlocky 70s music?

"Hot Blooded" is one of the filthiest songs ever. First time I sang it in my live karaoke band I couldn't help but laugh at how absurd the lyrics were.

@Figgsrock - my mother would not let me listen to "Shop Around" (the Captain & Tennile version, no less!) because she felt it promoted sex before marriage & general sluttiness (??!!) but she liked "Hot-Blooded" because "it had a good beat". She liked "Big Balls ", too.
Oh, mum.

I thought that the 90's 'grunge' stuff kinda brought us out of the arena rock/hair band, polished type rock...with a new raw feel to 'it'...kind like how punk helped us get out of the 'disco' trip???...I personally never strayed far from the proven formula of rock, myself...plenty of bands stayed true to the music...more and more, many of the great people who were still around and still are...got/get less attention than they deserve...:)O(:...

Nirvana was about it for me. Pavement too. But that’s that. Anything past them… Don’t care. I feel the 2000’s started to become better. And I think things like Bandcamp have now made the Internet more indie musk friendly than ever.

This is trite, and I was not a Nirvana obsessive (Mudhoney a different story..), but I so clearly remember typing up a case study in my living room, dot matrix printer merrily clacking away, MTV on in the background, and just being FLOORED when Smells Like Teen Spirit came on, it was such a shock. Seems funny now.

Certain groups just have a feel for whats righteous...My son laughs at me when I tell him that Nickelback hit some kind of 'note', somewhere in there...if you trace the return of 'hard' melodic' rock you can't help but think of groups like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Audioslave, Three Doors Down, Tool,...etc. etc...something about what that music seems to connect with???...:)O(:...

@Holly in NC: I was up visiting at the right time. The friend I was staying with worked at WBEZ at the time so we got up early to go down to the station to watch their on-air performance and then the Navy Pier performance. I was at a live album recording the did a few nights earlier [engineered by Bob Weston!]. I hope they release that soon. They were so much fun. I'm definitely going to plan another visit to Chicago that involves seeing them again.

When I lived in Seattle there was a 70s arena rock cover band called 70 Proof. The rotating lineup included members of Mudhoney, Pearl Jam, Supersuckers, Fastbacks, Presidents of the USA and members of other bands that weren't on tour. Those guys had a blast playing songs you've heard a million times. They had another band called 80 Proof that covered your favorite new wave tunes.

@Holly: yes, "Teen Spirit" was definitely one of those musical moments that you'll never forget the first time where and when you heard it. Pixies "Where's My Mind" too.

Junior's Farm is better than I remember!
@Fuzzy - Pixies for me was the entire 1st ep, Come On Pilgrim. Still my favorite. Know it by heart.

Weird! Matt Fiveash played B. Bumble just last week. Spooky!

@Holly: If you revisit the Wings catalog, you might feel that a lot of it is better than you remember.

Actually not that weird, Holly: that reissue CD wound up in the WFMU new bin recently! (I guess that's weird, though.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/19/14 11:42pm Holly in NC:

@P-90 - Oh I do like many, many Wings songs very much, but Junior's Farm was never really one of them. So yes I guess I do need to go back and revisit ;-)

I thought that 'Wildlife' was his 'big' coming out album, myself???...:)O(:...

Jet, Junior's Farm...2 great-sounding songs off the top of my head that make absolutely no sense. Paul was Hi Hi Hi back then on the good herb of the day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/19/14 11:46pm Bad Giblet Zero:

I tend to like covers of Wings songs more than the originals. I do like Wings, but there's something about the production that makes it sound flat to me.

Big Dipper covering "Jet" is greatness.
  Wed. 11/19/14 11:46pm P-90:

@efd: that did sound like the straight, off-the-rack, good ol' original-release version of "Junior's"
  Wed. 11/19/14 11:46pm ccrides:

In fact nobody hardly ever plays the title cut off of that?!?...pisses me off!!!...:)O(:...

BGZ, the Pacific Northwest love of classic rock is one thing I appreciate about 1990s rock. And I also got into Beat Happening back then as well… But they were really 1980s. The thing about indie in the 1990s? It created… “Twee.” And that is all I will say about it.
