I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Hey, Mayuko and all! All ears for the show! (We're still on the stream for the moment it seems.)
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:04pm Mayuko:

Having trouble getting on the radio, will start shortly!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Currently playing: Texas Gladden "The House Carpenter"

Quite coincidentally, the previous artist was Tex Ritter.

The stream went from Tex to Texas.

My buddy and I listened to the Whitey Album all the way to Wisconsin to see the Grateful Dead in 1989.

Hallos, Doug, james & Uncle M! So glad to have you all here!

Smiths!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 12:15pm Uncle Michael:

I want to start a really happy band called The Robert Smiths.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:19pm Mayuko:

Haha! I know would definitely love The Robert Smiths.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:20pm glenn:

a really really happy band would be the morrisseys.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:21pm glenn:

and also - cocktail is a truly, truly shitty movie.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:21pm Jason Elbogen:

Greetings, all!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:22pm Jason Elbogen:

(I never saw 'Cocktail' or 'Top Gun'). Yet I'm an American who grew up in the 80's...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 12:26pm Uncle Michael:

I thought the premise of Cocktail was hilarious. Tom Cruise as...THE BEST FIGHTER PILOT...Tom Cruise as THE BEST POOL SHARK...Tom Cruise as the best umm...BARTENDER. wtf
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:27pm listener james from westwood:

He was the overcompensating white-toothed screen star an overcompensating Reagan 80s needed to project itself far and wide.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:28pm Mayuko:

Hellos, glenn! I thought it was truly truly truly ridiculous too, until I realized the true meaning of what's happening there!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:31pm Mayuko:

Jason! You missed that whole excitement of the 80's? as I watched this film Cocktail, I was thinking I wouldn't have survived it if I were there myself. People were way too excited there, I wouldn't have been able to handle that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

Jason: I'm the same; never saw TG or Cocktail. First Tom Cruise film I saw was the Tim Curry fantasy film Legend. Next was Interview with a Vampire. Last will have been Eyes Wide Shut by the time I'm dead.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:35pm Jason Elbogen:

Uncle Michael: what was the premise of Risky Business (the one 80's Tom Cruise movie I did see), then? Tom Cruise as the best ????
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:35pm listener james from westwood:

I'd have seen Valkyrie but for his presence in it. Besides finding him multiply loathsome, I didn't buy him as von Stauffenberg.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:35pm Jason Elbogen:

underwear model?
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:37pm Jason Elbogen:

James--yeah, I actually don't mind seeing action blockbusters (like Mission Impossible) with my Dad once in a while. But I feel a little guilty about supporting him in any way.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:37pm Mayuko:

What's truly amazing is that Cocktail came out I think the same year as Rain man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:41pm listener james from westwood:

in the 80s/early 90s I went more along the Schwarzenegger/Willis/Verhoeven axis of action films along with my gang of science fiction/roleplaying loons.
Oh, shit, I remember, I DID see M:I. Waste of Jean Reno.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:44pm listener james from westwood:

One streak running thru 80s/early 90s American film: anxiety over what some in the US perceived as Japan's eventual global economic dominance at the US's expense. Films tapping into this fell at various points near the intersection of insecurity and racism.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:46pm Jason Elbogen:

Mayuko! Don't spoil the ending!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:46pm listener james from westwood:

I'd accept a mixed drink from our Doug with a zillion times more alacrity than from Tom's character.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:47pm listener james from westwood:

This take is accurate and this pattern runs thru Cruise's films!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:49pm listener james from westwood:

1980s America couldn't see male het relationships through any alternate lenses besides manly men in beer ads. No allowance for the instant brotherly camaraderie that you get in, say, Hong Kong action films between the male leads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 12:49pm listener james from westwood:

Cure!!!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 12:55pm Mayuko:

@james Being manly men that doesn't allow you to be vulnerable definitely is what leads this story Cocktail to tragedy!!!

hi Mayu, just got back from Harriman State Camp, dodged rain!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:00pm Mayuko:

Hola mmz! Where is Harriman State Camp? Did the thunderstorm thing hit you? It is getting a little dark and cloudy here in Jersey City too.
  Sat. 7/1/17 1:04pm /mmzzm\:

rained heard last evening up there, half of my tent submerged...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 1:07pm ἶkε:

I wanted to go to Harriman State Park for a hike today but I pulled a muscle (or something) in my butt! Ha ha! :/
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:08pm Mayuko:

Is that your own expression or an English idiom, Ike???
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 1:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Mayuko and verts. Like a dip, I left my car windows down a little yesterday. At least I didn't leave the sunroof fully open.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 1:13pm ἶἶkε:

Not an idiom. I don't know what actually happened. It's mysterious. My tailbone (or something around there) hurt when I was walking yesterday evening but now I feel much better. Very weird!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 1:17pm ἶἶkε:

@Jason@12:35 #1: I don't remember Risky Business very well, but wasn't that Tom Cruise as the *BEST* suburban whorehouse operator?
  Sat. 7/1/17 1:22pm /mmzzm\:

ok i'm downloading boot Cocktail from utube.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:23pm Mayuko:

Oh no Ike! That's what literally happened! Hope you feel better soon. Hellos Ken! Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:24pm Mayuko:

mzzm, I think you'll see what I mean!!!!!! This is the only explanation of what's happening in that film otherwise it makes zero sense!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 1:27pm Uncle Michael:

Ike's got it...though I was going to day BEST HIGH SCHOOL PIMP

At first I thought this Joke Lanz was Mustafio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 1:35pm Uncle Michael:

I just read the Cocktail plot summary on Wikipedia. It was...long.

someone once said LC singigng was like rolling a concrete mixer..
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:44pm Mayuko:

Uncle M, someone wrote an even longer article on this film titled "Conservative Ideology in the Film "Cocktail" I was going to read it but haven't yet, but I was impressed. thiswaytoprogress.blogspot.hk...
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:46pm Doug Schulkind:

This program is like comfort food for the ear and mind.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 1:46pm Doug Schulkind:

But less messy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 1:47pm Uncle Michael:

I'll read that, Mayuko...but I still won't see the film.

Like how I stay away from Fox News?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 1:58pm Ike:

Merriam-Webster: "Estuary: a water passage where the tide meets a river current; especially: an arm of the sea at the lower end of a river"

(I don't fully understand the specific marine implications of that. I thought an estuary was just any old stream.)
  Sat. 7/1/17 1:59pm Rickwaukee:

Art as cynical soulless set decoration - 80s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

Estuaries are where fresh and salt water meet. This has implications.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Kurt will be on for Amanda, August 3 to November 30!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 2:01pm listener james from westwood:

The most lethal art-related moment I can immediately recall was when Sir Derek Jacobi got pushed on a sculpture made of giant scissors made by Emma Thompson in Dead Again.

Aw, hell, that Amanda hiatus is gonna be rough! But she's earned a break if she wants one! And hell yesss for Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 2:01pm Ike:

@UM, thanks, that's much clearer. Usually M-W.com is better than that. That's some crappy dictionary work on that one.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:06pm Mayuko:

@1:56 Rickwaukee Haha, I suppose so, there are things you shouldn't try to understand intellectually cos it wouldn't work.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:07pm Mayuko:

Ah, thanks re: Estuaries! I like that word, very imagination provoking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 2:09pm northguineahills:

Thanks Mayuko!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:11pm Mayuko:

Ah, thanks for listening, northguineahills! I actually watched Cocktail because I was thinking of going to Florida this summer, which everyone tells is a BAD idea. Is it THAT bad over there during summer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 2:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Gizzards! Is it muggy out. Walked into town to the farmers market and hauled back fresh honey & cherries. Gonna feast like a king tonight!

gotta take a nap that was long bike ride...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/1/17 2:15pm Uncle Michael:

Thank for the movie better than a movie, Mayuko.
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:16pm Doug Schulkind:

Alice into Allen: SUBLIME!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:17pm Mayuko:

fresh honey & cherries sounds wonderful, Ken, enjoy! Happy napping, mmzz!
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:17pm Mayuko:

That's the best compliment for this show, Uncle M!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/1/17 2:18pm northguineahills:

Well, Florida is very hot and humid in the summer. People are crazy (although there oasises of culture), but the nature is rather peachy, and the beaches are nice if there aren't too many people (Which is why I go to the state parks).
Avatar Sat. 7/1/17 2:19pm Mayuko:

@ngh That's good to know! Maybe I will really go after all!!

@Mayuko, check out the cystal spring rivers, they have tubing and canoeing w/ manatees in the wild.

Thanks, Big M!

I did consider playing Linda's version, but sticked with what's played on the film, Rickwaukee! Thanks for listening, Jeff!!!!

I'll look up the cystal spring, thanks ngh!
Thanks again everyone for listening! I will see you next week.

I loved the David Jackman track, and of course Boris. I basically worship Wata, though I'm sure I could walk past her and not know it. I have seen Boris a few times, but I don't really know what she looks like, I do know what she sounds like. That's what matters to me
