Yeah, actually it was fun as well as a bit grim for that reason. But enlightening.

@Jack Mello & Melinda re the FMU movie -I liked it a lot too….with among my fave parts been the old footage from bygone era studios on Upsala College

I was preset hopping all night until I stumbled upon your show. The stereo's getting some exercise tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 11:17pm melinda:

@Billy Jam: I liked those parts too. Love learning some history and comparing then vs. now.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 11:31pm Billy Jam:

@melinda - yeah me too and am always learning something new about this wonderful station - like yesterday I went back into WFMU's Beware of The Blog to read about that same (Upsala campus) era about the time when the one and only Danny Fields had a show on WFMU 5 nights a week and one night in 1969 brought in a messed up on booze etc. Iggy Pop who proceeded to puke all over Danny's fellow WFMU DJ Vin Scelsa’s sneakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 11:35pm melinda:

Wow! Great story. I enjoyed Danny Fields' guest appearance on Gaylord's show this year.
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 11:37pm Billy Jam:

yes - another thing I just learned of - as I totally missed that one but have bookmarked the archives to listen to over weekend! - another wonderful feature of this station (something lacking in most stations) is ability to back and hear anything -

take care, melinda, thanks for listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/6/17 11:47pm JakeGould:

Hey J. Mello and B. Jam! I really liked the Happy Mondays back in the day. But man, Shaun Ryder has aged badly after all of those pills, thrills and bellyaches.
  Fri. 1/6/17 11:49pm ian:

Well, if WFMU has to play mainstream R&B, at least it's not TLC. I actually LOOVE 1 thing as a guilty pleasure. bobbin my head..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 11:51pm Jack Mello:

thanks, ian. they use a sample from the meters on that track, that's why!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/6/17 11:54pm Jack Mello:

speaking of guilty pleasures...
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 11:55pm future transport:

  Fri. 1/6/17 11:57pm ian:

Did not know that jack, of course it had a sample. I'll check out the original.
  Sat. 1/7/17 12:52am Rosie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/7/17 10:14am Jack Mello:
