I'm glad to hear you on the flagship, Matt. From what I heard of your earlier shows (yeah, I listen to the other streams once in a while), this should be a blast

@Gaylord: Did you really meet Pat Duncan? For years, I was afraid he was dead
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:28pm Gaylord Fields:

"I Say a Little Prayer" came out when I was seven years old, and it had me thinking that if this is grownup music, adulthood might not be so bad after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:29pm Gaylord Fields:

@fred: Why would I lie? I've known Pat for years, after all.

Hey, Matt - great to hear you again on the bigtime WFMU main airwaves!

@MattBelow: Yes, but not till I thought I was mature enough, which was in my mid-twenties.

@MattBelow: The 1973 reissue of "The Monster Mash," which I bought with money I earned from a very brief job I had washing cars in a parking garage. (I lasted a week before I realized I was missing summer fun.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@MattAbove: What was yours? (I ask the same to all other commenters.)
  Sat. 8/1/15 3:47pm rw:

I think The Monster Mash may have been my first single too but I'm pretty sure my parents bought i... Oh, wait, It could have been the Banana Splits, ordered with cereal box tops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:47pm MattBelow:

My first cassette tape was Beatles 1967-1970.
  Sat. 8/1/15 3:50pm rw:

Hey Matt, Nice show! I don't think I've heard you on the stream so this is a treat! Thanks for coming in today!

Loving this playlist Matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@MattBelow: Beatles 1962-1966 and Beatles 1967-1970 were the third and fourth albums I even bought! (Nos. 1 and 2 were a Beach Boys comp on Pickwick titled High Water and the BBs' Endless Summer, both mid-70s.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 3:59pm MattBelow:

The folk-rock era has so many chestnuts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 4:01pm Gaylord Fields:

To counterpoint, as of today, the most recent 45 I bought was Bobby Coleman's "(Baby) You Don't Have to Tell Me" — a song better known from the Walker Brothers' cover.
  Sat. 8/1/15 4:07pm Mike Sin:

On the road back to Jersey from a lil' vaca... Was receiving 45s as gifts very early on (most kids were in them thar days). The first 45 i chose with my "own" money while sitting at a record counter at a discount store? The Chi-Lites - "Have You Seen Her?" Brunswick label, IIRC. Still gots it.

Trems! Woo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 4:38pm MattBelow:

I have been on Trems kick this entire year. Can't kick it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 4:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Ken fHP: done that, recommended (podcast catch-up time for me)...
@MikeSin: Yer wunna them FMU-Js could make another Vol. of Nuggets on demand it seems...I guess a playlist is a compilation & that's what you guys do !!...& the fill-in persons can store up good stuff like a Dark Horse...
...1st 45s were hand-me-downs (when older sibling had LP prob.?)- InnaGaddaDaVida in 1970 in 1st grade or something - maybe 'Crossroads' by Cream - both on yeller & white Atco label w/ trumpet...but 1st I bought - second-hand stores - geez who knows. Doubt I ever bought one new!, unlike LPs...many 45s were around & trickled down to me (youngest) - 'Run Joey Run' - great stuff like that late60s-early70s. Banana Splits EP, 'Hush' Deep Purple...

The Trems are on my list of bands with great singing drummers — see also: The Searchers.

Barton!! Ya made my day!
  Sat. 8/1/15 5:02pm Listener Robert:

When you get a chance, see (don't just listen to) the performance of the Doomsquad linked from the main page. They disabled comments on the Vimeo host page, so I figured I'd put something here.

They have a literally hypnotic quality, in that seeing along w hearing them makes me want to sleep, in a good way. If I had a baby, I'd want to take it to a performance of Doomsquad & dance hir to sleep. Just very soothing & friendly looking, especially the percussionist-flutist at stage R (audience L). Thanks to whoever put that video & link there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 5:04pm MattBelow:

Hey Marcel! That drink sounds good right about now!

@Listener Robert: Those Monty Hall vids are pretty neat! Stay tuned to that page to see more being uploaded as the shows roll on
  Sat. 8/1/15 5:09pm Listener Robert:

Thank you, MattB. I appreciate that things are collegial enough there that DJs don't mind advertising for other material during their own shows. Of course that can hardly be helped now that WFMU has so many streams & archives under their own station name, plus you guys are friends or colleagues of many others, some of whom have gotten your help, getting things out under other auspices.

Reg King = the greatest "unsung" singer of the '60s! I can scratch a divot in my head trying to figure out why The Action had so many great songs and no hits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 5:15pm Gaylord Fields:

And then you follow it with my single favorite BBs song! @MattAbove, you are killin' it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 5:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@MattAbove: Yes, George M. had the magic touch, but strangely it didn't extend to The Action, alas. Nonetheless, I wore out my vinyl copy of the Edsel comp, and Rolled Gold is always close to my player.
