I want an inflatable Wayne Cochran wig hat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

If this were a just world they would be available in every haberdasher and Halloween superstore
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

If you check out the clip of Wayne in CC and Company, there appears to be a neon version of his hair on the stage behind him

Nite Hyde!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:38pm northguineahills:

around, lurking trying to get my wire sub updated, but my bank isn't used to me spending scratch, especially in the UK. It's a nice problem to have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:38pm Alex In Illinois:

We're all out of inflatable models, how about single-use freeze-dried, just add water models?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:39pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard this Dolly before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

Never heard that Dolly before. Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

It's kind of a sleeper with the Northern Soul crowd. Kind of hard to find and pricey. I got lucky with a cheapie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

My bank shut down my debit card when I was in North Carolina between the time I rented a car with it and tried to use it to check into the hotel. I discovered this after banking hours on a Saturday, with the car department closed till Monday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

That sucks
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:43pm Uncle Michael:

If my wife wasn't along on the trip with her card, I'd have slept in that rental car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:44pm Uncle Michael:

OK, time for me to cut the lights, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Unk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:45pm Uncle Michael:

See you all later. Thanks, Larry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:46pm Funky16Corners:

Entirely my pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:49pm northguineahills:

@UM: I once was visiting my bros in FL (when I was in NYC), and my bank sent me a new ATM card even though my old one didn't expire for two more years. It was working the day before, and driving my brother's car a good 3.5 hours to Ft Myers Beach for a wedding. I was running out of gas, and my car was declined. I called the bank and they said I should have had my new one by now so the old one had been rendered void. Luckily, my brother had about $7 in change in his car, so by the time I pulled into my friends' hotel, my car was below E (then I had to borrow money for the rest of the weekend).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:54pm Funky16Corners:

Nothing worse that being caught suddenly cashless
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

I would put this 45 up against almost anything that came out on Motown at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

Sounds good on a big booming sound system too
  Wed. 11/29/17 11:05pm cupcakejenny:

Psst I emailed you. Can you print that after the show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:06pm Funky16Corners:

I got it. Yes.

Indeed! Using a track borrowed from Major Lance!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:15pm Alex In Illinois:

Getting late for me. It is a good thing that shows like this get archived.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

Getting late for everyone. Dig it in the archive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:16pm Alex In Illinois:

Wait, gotta listen to this version of The Cheater now
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

This is the OG
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:17pm Alex In Illinois:

Bob Kuban from St. Louis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:19pm doctorjazz:

Lesley Gore???
(got me to come out of lurking, wouldn'ta guessed).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:19pm Alex In Illinois:

He played at weddings of a few people I've met, and has played at events around St. Louis for year. I think he still does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:20pm Funky16Corners:

He had a great band. Their 1960s albums are filled with great stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

@DoctorJazz - Lesley produced by Gamble/Huff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:23pm northguineahills:

I-Tunes stroked out, time for the pop-uo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:24pm Funky16Corners:

I'll be here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:25pm Alex In Illinois:

I really need to get to bed. Can you put on a dull song so I can step away? No wait! There is the WFMU app on my smartphone and a headset or Bluetooth Speaker. I can take the show with me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

I can't guarantee you'll be able to sleep. Nothing mellow in tonight's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

You will however be able to dance all you like
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

that Robert John track sounds very much like another song from the late 60s (?) but i can't think of it now that it's over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 11/30/17 12:00am Funky16Corners:

More Today Than Yesterday by the Spiral Starecase
