Have a happy one, Meghan!

Had to endure Z100 at my workplace in the 90s. The one bright spot what when "Down By the Water" started getting heavy airplay thereupon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:14pm northguineahills:

Digging this nostalgia train...., most still holds up....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:16pm David D:

Does Z100 still exist?

Hi Meghan, all!

Heya Birthday Girl and Aquarians. That car is pretty cool, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:19pm northguineahills:

I didn't even start to listen to music until '92 (top 40 radio doesn't count)
  Thu. 2/15/18 12:22pm queems:

yeah i turned 10 in 1997
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:22pm northguineahills:

I have a picture of my 19-year old self w/ Dean Wareham.

(I still have my original Nevermind)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:22pm Little Danny:

I had/have the exact same trajectory with '90s music and Le Grunge. At the time it was MBV/Ride, Stereolab and the whole Spiritualized/Spectrum thing and... not much else. Now I know better. Still a terrible time for audio production tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:22pm northguineahills:

Heck, the last rave I went to was in 2016.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:25pm northguineahills:

Can't tell you how many times I've seen Man or Astroman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:26pm Parq:

My kid was a baby, then a school-kid, during the 90s. I can tell you a whole lot about animated cartoons from that decade, but music not so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:26pm Meghan:

Oh Little Danny, MBV and Ride were huge... I didn't get into Stereolab until early 2000's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:27pm annie:

we were huge MTV fans, and VH1, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy birthday, Meghan. Have you picked out which Denny's to visit for your free Grand Slam?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:34pm Meghan:

hahaha! You know, for as many times that I spent at a Denny's in high school, I never took advantage of that...
  Thu. 2/15/18 12:36pm Rf:

WOW
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:37pm Carmichael:

My grandma has never done that, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:39pm Meghan:

Gotta love the Frogs.....
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 12:39pm still b/p:

Denny’s give your system a Grand Slam with the beaucoup butter and greeeeeeze.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:40pm northguineahills:

I ran into Ian Svenonius one night in a DC bar around '99, we ended up hanging out all night, and even gave me a Dubbed out Make-Up 45 (Dub Narcotic). Nice lad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:43pm northguineahills:

You know, I like a lot of 90s music (but I can say the same about any other decade).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I forget who it was, but I remember some comedian had a line in his routine that no one goes to a Denny's on purpose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:57pm Parq:

"Grandma Standing in the Corner with a Penis in Her Hand Going No, No, No, No, No"? Dang, I pick the worst times to go get my lunch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:57pm Meghan:

hahaha. We went there on purpose, but that was high school and you could smoke inside. All the punk rocker, goth and alternative kids hung out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:57pm Meghan:

awwww sorry Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 12:58pm northguineahills:

As a Bjork fiend, and an owner of many 808 State records, how did I miss this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:00pm Meghan:

really? you missed this one? Sooo damn good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:06pm northguineahills:

This was a great Tricky album....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:07pm Little Danny:

Oh shit, Tricky! Forgot about the whole UK trip hop thing. Great stuff - a lot of it really holds up
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:08pm doctorjazz:

Late to the party, happy birthday! (any cake left?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:09pm Meghan:

It's the dance party to work off the cake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:10pm JtotheK:

haven't listened to endtroducing in a while... happy bday (early) Meghan, enjoying the show! hi everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:10pm northguineahills:

Endtroducing opened a whole new world for me, and got me away only listening to noise/avant garde and led me to djing.
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 1:12pm C.S.:

I too couldn't stand the 90s for music but you have too admit, the late 80s were filled with a large amount a drek too. It's like music lost its way when I was in high school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:12pm βrian:

Hey, wait. What happened to Sancerre, Meghan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:13pm βrian:

Dark Days, that was the movie that introduced me to DJ Shadow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:14pm Meghan:

That isn't for a month! I leave next month for France! Woohoo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:16pm βrian:

Ah, Sancerre, c'est l'extase, le ravissement, le délire. Damn, j'ai soif !
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 1:17pm CeeDubbles:

warmup trip to Rue Sud?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:19pm northguineahills:

@βrian:I watched that w/in a week of stepping off the boat in NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:20pm βrian:

I saw it in the big city, too. Chicago, in my case.
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 1:22pm C.S.:

Country music was pretty popular in Boston during the 90s. I think they had three stations at one time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:22pm βrian:

Huh, Velvet Underground is my Montreal road music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:23pm Little Danny:

Man, Meghan, we must be about the exact same age. Our experiences of finding and hearing music are parallel, just pre-Internet
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:23pm northguineahills:

That's why it takes me almost 9 years to cycle through my recs/cds/tapes... I rarely hear anything twice w/in a decade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:26pm northguineahills:

Can't leave work b/c of Sugar, but I must eat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:27pm doctorjazz:

Cycling through the albums, huh? That is a great idea, except don't have time to get to the new music coming in. Oh well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:29pm Meghan:

oh, I don't remember much country music in Boston at that time. I remember WFNX being on the decline, so I just listened to a lot of mixed tapes.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:31pm northguineahills:

I listen to new albums as soon as I purchase them. Since I've been forbidden from the wife from buy records unless I'm at a live show for the last 8 years (literally ran out of space), it now accrues at a much slower pace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:32pm βrian:

Sugar has led me back to HSR and the album, Fig 14. Loved that album cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:33pm doctorjazz:

We ran out of space (by my wife's reckoning) years ago, but somehow I still manage to find somewhere to put stuff (not always to her liking...). The negotiations of relationships...
  Thu. 2/15/18 1:34pm Rf:

All of it is sounding excruciatingly good. ugh!!! thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:34pm Meghan:

I find that my record buying has amped up as of recent. I am buying much more new stuff than in the past
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:36pm βrian:

I buy Sancerre and drink it as I listen to the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:40pm Meghan:

I've been drinking a lovely Muscadet lately.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:49pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Ahhhh! I was stuck in a meeting and just about missed the whole show. I'll have to catch up on the archive. Happy birthday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:50pm βrian:

What, it was a shortbus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:50pm PsychopathJimFields:

Hi Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:50pm Parq:

Meghan : The early to mid 70s was kind of the heyday for country in Boston. Passim's and the Harvard Square Performance Center did a lot for that genre. There was a local band that did a song called "It's So Lonely In Braintree With You In Methuen, It's Almost Like Being In Lowell".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:54pm KP:

Hello, Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:55pm Meghan:

I lived right in between Lowell and Methuen! My mom is in Methuen aka Methtown
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 1:55pm still b/p:

Strange shift in print landscape: no Phoenix in Boston, but Portland still has its local edition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:56pm Little Danny:

Meghan: Kinda curious if "lo-fi" (ugh) stuff like Sebadoh and Pavement fits into yer constellation
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:56pm Meghan:

I remember the Phoenix stopping and I was shocked. It was such a staple for us
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:57pm Meghan:

I got into Pavement a bit later, along with Sebadoh. Though it was played by my friends a lot, so it was always happening near me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:57pm northguineahills:

Well, Sunny Day, SFS, GVSB, really reminds me of friends that were coming in and out of their emo stage at the time (I eventually got those records 10 years after the fact, and dig them).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:59pm Sem:

Thanks so much, Meghan. See you and all next time. Don't have too much cake. Bye!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 1:59pm northguineahills:

I actually like lo-fi, but not when it's overly fetishized.
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 2:00pm still b/p:

Such a fixture...on a trip to town months after its demise, looked to pick up a copy and remembered-realized, “Damn that’s right. Never again.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:00pm northguineahills:

Many of my HS friends were really into Sebadoh, but I couldn't figure out how to like them until I was finishing my undergrad. But, I always dug Pavement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:00pm Little Danny:

Oh I do too NGH, I just remember mags like Spin talking excitedly about "lo-fi" like it was some unified thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:01pm Meghan:

I miss picking up papers letting me know what is going on in the town. It was such a great resource. Even before the Village Voice died this past year, it stopped being a resource for what was going on. Sad really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:01pm northguineahills:

Criminy, it's two, thanks again Meghan, and may this solar orbit be beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:02pm Meghan:

We can all thank the term LO FI to our dearly departed Berger
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:03pm βrian:

I think the Reader is still carrying on, though I haven't looked at it in a few years.
Avatar Thu. 2/15/18 2:06pm still b/p:

“You’ll come for the kinky classifieds as a guffawing teen, but stay as you age for the helpful listings, and even the journalism.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:10pm βrian:

When you sign off, Meghan, there'll be a vast expanse of Radio Incognito."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 2:10pm Little Danny:

Thanks Meghan. And HBD!
