hey everyone! My apologies to those of you missing the traditional playlist photos tonight, that is unfortunately beyond my grasp this evening.

Apology accepted!

Photos or no, I need this to get over the general grumpiness of staying up half the night to see a ^%#@ing bichon win.

That's okay, I just did an image search so I could look at some doggos.

Kim, you were there last night - how does my announcing compare??

"Bird Dog" is the first R & R song I can remember listening to back in the 50s.

The Connells! Oh, I had many late nights with them back in the 90s. They're actually playing a few shows this spring down South.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 9:36pm Kat in Chicago:

I forgot what a pretty voice the Connells singer had (and may well still have).

A friend of mine has an Italian greyhound. He's literally like a miniature deer. Who always wants to sit in your lap and stick his wet nose in your face.

@Figgs are you from NC? I was born in Raleigh and randomly ended up in Carrboro/CH for a year circa '93
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 9:47pm Figgsrock:

@Kat I am not, a New Yorker through and through. I have been down in NC on tour a couple times. I met the Connells guys when I interviewed them in 96 and we hit it off. Haven't seen those guys in a lonnng time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 9:50pm Kat in Chicago:

I met someone in Chapel Hill that year and ended up moving to New York as a consequence of that... the 90s were interesting for me. I met a bunch of musicians but not the Connells.

@kat I have nothing but fond memories of Chapel Hill. The band I toured with in 2002 crashed at Jon from Superchunk's house during one stop. That's when I first heard Scharpling & Wurster for the first time.

I heard "2468 Motorway" at a Mets game last summer, and realized after they played Queen later on that I had unknowingly come to Gay Day.

(I am gay, so that's fine, except for Queen.)

@Bill W that's funny - I would have been stunned to hear TRB at a ballgame!

good evening, EFD and all!
oh dear my brain is definitely going -- thought that was Oh Ok doing "Brother" -- ??!!

2-4-6-8 was a big pop hit
in the uk in late 1977
stayed popular there
for years
Avatar    Wed. 2/14/18 11:46pm slugluv1313:

just did a quick search -- Oh Ok also did "Brother"!
do not know who wrote the song though, or who did it originally . . .
i totally remember Oh Ok doing this at "Music for Dozens" at Folk City so many many years ago -- amazing group and songs!
(ah but can i remember what i need to get at the grocery store? nope, hah!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:49pm efd:

turns out it is an Oh OK song! I had no idea, so thanks for the accidental tip!
Avatar    Wed. 2/14/18 11:52pm slugluv1313:

ah! i had no idea either! just remember what a cool fun band they were, and what a great song "Brother" is! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:54pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

You did all you could to make Ultimate Painting stars. No way I'm going to let you take the rap for their break up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:55pm efd:

ha, I'm trying not to take it personally :)
