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.

How about you break the rarely broken Rush barrier on WFMU? YYZ maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 8:05am doctorjazz:

How about a really cheery tune, "Withered and Died" by Richard and Linda Thompson? (can we make more than 1 request?)

Roberto Paiva - Mulher, sempre mulher . From Orfeu da Conceicao. Some sunny bossa for the cold winters day.

Hey UM - longtime listener here. Do you think you could play "Baby Won't Ya" by the MC5? If not, any MC5 cut will do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 8:17am doctorjazz:

Do Ya by ELO would be another (if more than one are allowed...probably not a great idea, I may fill up the thread...)

I'll request a few, because I don't know which ones you have; I know I only get one request played, if that! So, in order of preference:

"The God Sheila" by Nervus Rex

"Touch" by Lori and the Chameleons

"The Shape of Things to Come" by the Headboys

"Following Through" by the Dismemberment Plan

Maybe also something from PiL's Album/Cassette/CD - "Bags" or "FFF"
And a song I've had in my head since I heard it (and sang along to it) a few das ago in the aisles of my local Key Food supermarket, "Don't Pull Your Love."

Speaking of Otis Redding it would be great to hear Nobody's fault but Mine or the killer live version of I Can't Turn You Loose from the Live In Europe album. Of course those would be second requests only.

@ βrian@ yes!!! and also "Sir Duke"

Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 12:07pm Alex In Illinois:

The reason I am wondering is because I still find listener-supported-radio, including web-streams, to be my favorite medium. Meanwhile, it seems that college radio is not considered as big a deal as it was when I was in college.

Elvis Costello covered "Withered and Died". (Kinda a cliche for his to it, eh?) He also covered " The End of the Rainbow"
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 12:14pm Alex In Illinois:

At first I liked Rush, before punk/wave/ska/newromantic/postpunk came along, and I fell into that "more wave-than-thou" faze. I remember not showing that I was impressed when Ted Epstein told me he had learned all of Neal Peart's parts. But, now I know, that was amazing. It was before he was 16.

So let's see: You have your OWN vast record library in Topeka?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 12:25pm Lizardner Dave:

The origin of my WFMU Friendship Society name is Rush-related. When the playlist chats first started people were calling themselves "Listener (name)" and also around that time Freedman went on an anti-Rush rant saying that anyone who liked the band was a reptile. There already was a "Listener Dave" so I picked "Lizardner" which has proven to be difficult for DJ's to pronounce over the years.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 12:25pm Doug Schulkind:

I was a huuge Rush fan in 1977-78. When I got to college, I called up the campus radio station and requested something from 2112. I said, "Make sure to pronounce the drummer's name Peert and not Pert." What a little prick I was.

My best friend Dan from high school won a radio contest and got to travel in a stretch limo to a Rush concert in Baltimore. He got a copy of all Rush's LPs and got to hang out backstage with the band. He brought my copy of 2112 and got it autographed.

My sister directed me to a Rush video that featured them in a recording studio with a lovely snowy Canadian landscape outside. Which is their natural habitat, I guess, but it seemed totally wrong to me. I always pictured them in an early 80s Texas shopping mall, which must be where I first heard them.

Lizardner Dave was once Listener Dave. On the aforementioned defunct message board, he crowdsourced ideas for a new on-line handle. I suggested that he adopt the persona of a madly bohemian romantic pianist who was also a devout Jew and call himself "Davener Liszt". Strangely, he did not jump at that.

I just googled Earache my Eye and am shocked by this: "According to Tommy Chong's autobiography, the famous guitar riff is played by Gaye Delorme, who also composed the music for the song. Additionally, Chong states that drums on the song are played by famed international percussionist Airto Moreira." I always thought it was Chong who played the guitar for some reason.

Yikes — that was not the original version of "Don't Pull Your Love"!
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:22pm chromaphone:

and the original isn't even that great in the first place, lol.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:23pm chromaphone:

It's on one of those Have A Nice Day discs.

Good Lord. Now I'm sliding into a post-Indian-buffet food coma.

Lol Gaylord, ok ok I take it back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/6/17 2:24pm Scraps:

but Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds did the hit

We really ought to hear the original now that you've taken the firm position...

Any chance of Share the Land by the Guess Who?
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:25pm Rich in Washington:

UM, your Have A Nice Day feature show a few years back prompted me to buy the whole damn set, put it on our common jukebox/computer and my wife and I used it as our remodeling soundtrack - it being the only music we can mutually agree on.
Sadly, we're sick of lots of the songs by now, especially that Hamilton, Frank & Reynolds track.
  Fri. 1/6/17 2:26pm ronzoni:

yay, thanks!!!!!
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

@βrian: post-Indian-buffet food comas are the best, are they not?

Sorry, Rich.

Just got the NRBQ box, starting to check it out, somehow they have always been on to do list but never got to them.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:28pm βrian:

Poor guy doesn't even warrant an adverbial suffix?
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

No need. We're still gettin' mileage out of it, sans a few songs. I've also supplemented lots of notable omissions.

yes! i miss so much 8th street indian. my favorite cuisine

Now I'm waiting for the Rhino 80s box set to drop.
  Fri. 1/6/17 2:29pm Ramblin' Ray:

Thanks Uncle!
  Fri. 1/6/17 2:29pm ronzoni:

somewhere i saw the track listing for the NRBQ box - it seems like it was too heavily weighted towards more recent stuff for me

I can't believe this album's 30 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/6/17 2:36pm Scraps:

I'm amazed that no one requested the Fall.

Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:36pm Jeff Golick:

(Missed the talkover request, though. Curious to hear what it was all about - will recheck in archivia.)
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:37pm Jeff Golick:

THIS ALBUM IS THIRTY YEARS OLD??? JFC.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

watched an amusing video over vacation - the original Pistols - who're now GEEZERS - wandering around London, commenting on everything. Lydon's bit is pretty funny - riding around on a tour bus yelling at passersby, complaining about the declining state of London metropolitan architecture.

Uncle, brilliantly handled. Here's to the next time.
Well done.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:39pm Jeff Golick:

Lydon and Kathleen Hanna would make a pretty good duo, I think.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:39pm Jeff Golick:

Unless that'd be too much of a good thing?
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 2:40pm listener james from westwood:

There was a joint production of "The Wall" some decades back, late 80s or so, w/ various artists each taking a song. I forget who got "Run Like Hell" but I recall thinking at the time that Lydon would've KILLED on that track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 2:41pm Andrew Waterloo:

It's too bad they couldn't tour Album.

If "Maajun" = "Majoun," it's a Mideast hashish delivery system, if I recall my Burroughs right.

@listener james: spot on - it is a tasty sweetmeat and Davy's was quite likely psychoactive. Full title is "Maajun (A Taste of Tangier)".
