Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Great Cyrkle song. I have that on an old Zenith comp. Red Rubber Ball was a Paul Simon song. Not sure about this one.

They actually have a deep catalog that includes songs Paul Simon didn't write.

More Hinky Linky: Jack Wild and Davy Jones both played the Artful Dodger, Jones onstage, Wild on film. That's why Jones was on the Sullivan show, doing a number from Oliver.

Who else played the Artful Dodger and went on to rock stardom?

UM, your recent-ish 70s show compelled me to track down that entire Have A Nice Day series and install it on my house audio system and truth told, it's the only music my wife and I can listen to together in agreement.

I stopped hating disco when I learned to appreciate well produced pop. You don't have to like it to respect solid arrangements.

Agreed Lane...I also love the music now.

Rich, did you find that down a wormhole?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/9/15 1:40pm listener jeff:

I remember liking the Bee-Gees a lot when I was a kid - had several of their 45's. Then for some reason I kind of left them for a harder rock sound. Then, I think the disco era even further distanced me. Really not until, ironically, did I see the disco bus that was outside of some Dead shows that I kind of reconnected. The disco bus played Stayin' Alive a lot with big speakers on top of the bus, really loud. Everybody was Dancing!
Thanks UM, this show provides insight that I may not have gotten otherwise. There is so much music and knowledge out there that I can only get from WFMU!
Avatar    Fri. 10/9/15 1:40pm Rich in Washington:

I was actually a bit young to have experienced disco in its full splendor but clearly remember all the jokes and put-downs of it from TV, also the meme that discotheques were a modern 'Sodom and Gomorrah' from Xtian kooks.

P F Sloan played the Poderosa Stomp. Used to have Raised on Records album by him. Good songwriter as Jimmy Webb acknowledges.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/9/15 1:44pm Parq:

I still hate the stuff, for the record. Too many bad associations for me to start "appreciating" it. Still, every now and again, I hear a track that makes me say, "Okay, that wasn't so bad."

I'm with Parq. Disco evokes bad memories working in a record store where one of the managers was an avid and addicted fan. Avid, as in playing in-store every frigging record that had the slightest whiff of disco; addicted, as in cocaine.

Didn't one of the Osmonds buy a Moog and attempt to play it on an album? Back when buying a Moog was akin to a small country achieving nuclear capabilities?

Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees owned the second or third Moog.

The roots of being Disco-averse go deep...I understand for Urban folk it was one hell of a party - w/ gays & minorities ascendant
...but in smalltown NH where I was - it was the jocks into Disco (...& yer Dad was all into it trying to be Travolta - all the worst things)
...& the freaks - us - into R&R (including Punk). All the Rockumentaries show Punk as reaction to Prog excess - but where & when I was - it was a long-overdue reaction to Disco dominating the airwaves & *all* Live venues for what seemed then to be *years* & *years* ! - woosh... Even then, tho' - I would concede the BGs & Donna Summer & what was just good Funk or Pop that happened to have an especially dancey beat...George Clinton said about Disco - it was like trying to make love w/ the same stroke *all the time*...

Thought this sounded familiar. The Three O'Clock, so named, IIRC, because the Salvation Army threatened a lawsuit when they originally assumed that name.

just my speculation if BeeGees vol1 was their only album, it would stand on par with Oddessey and Oracle, Idle Race's Birthday Party and similar stand-out albums.

  Fri. 10/9/15 2:51pm Dean:

Corgan here sounds a bit like one of those '80s tech pop bands. Pet Shop Boys, maybe? But then there's that distinctive voice of a person who doesn't get enough fiber in his diet.

- fairly often, the hook, for me - is the highest note or harmony those incredible Gibbs voices hit - & the covers sometimes don't do that. Much to appreciate tho'. I am fond of this Hoffs person - can't help it...
