@sheilaB - i do! it really /is/ a pleasant surprise!
@fred - when I find 45s that I know one of the sides, I tend to plan on listening to the 'other' side "eventually" ... but 45s where I don't know either side, I'll check out both.

(This happened a few months back as well when Doug S. spun a Wilmer and the Dukes 45 - I knew the instrumental side, but the flip 'Give Me One More Chance' I never listened to, and found out it was fantastic!)

@Cecile - along those lines, that's why I have a soft spot for the releases that crossed over to get soul spins ... and of all the 45s I spun out (granted not many, and it's been a while) one of my favorites was Paul Anka "I Can't Help Loving You". inspired many 'what was that?' moments.

Speaking of schedule, does anyone know why CC isn't on Monday nights any more? I liked him a lot.

CC was a borrowed show from another station wasn't it?

@Kelly, Sophisticated Boom Boom is truly a jewel of the radio dial!
@Cecilie, CC's show is off for the summer. And alas, summer is nearly over now!
@Devlawn CC was based in Minnesota or somewhere midwestern

That sounds amazing.

@Cecile: I heard from a friend that iTunes only releases new stuff on their own plan, so there might be a delay. It might even be a few days, but usually less than a week

@Sheila: maybe Vik should know that the download from bandcamp doesn't work with the default windows 10 unzipper (track names too long or something). I have other tools (cygwin) but maybe he should consider checking this out

Hi Sheila-great selection as usual and Morrisey sure has some lasting stuff in his catalog! The first of the gang to die showed his staying power!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/25/17 5:35pm fred:

@Cecile: the lag is for everyone, it seems. That friend's record was made with a guy from an apparently well-known band I've never heard of (empire of the sun) and Apple just demands money to guarantee a release date. So if you don't pay, it will be late, of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/25/17 5:35pm Cecile:

it is early in Seoul!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/25/17 5:36pm Cecile:

I like some Empire of the Sun very much. So even they are having troubles and they sell buckets of records
