WRAS Atlanta: "Left on the dial, right on the music." Also "Keep it locked to the left." Formerly a great college station, Governor Deal gave 14 air hours a day to Georgia Public Broadcasting as a political payoff and the station has gone downhill since then IMO. This was after student fees had been raised for a few years to pay for a $500k transmitter (the station broadcasts at 100k watts).

But the winner in NYC has to be WNYZ-LP at 87.75 FM (TV channel 6) en.wikipedia.org...

"During most of its life while operating on channel 6, the station has been operated more as a radio station than a television station. WNYZ-LP broadcasts video, usually silent movies which are repeated throughout the day, for the likely reason to fulfill the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirement that some sort of video be broadcast on the frequency because WNYZ-LP is licensed as a television facility."

'The audio programming on WNYZ was originally Russian Top 40 (Radio Vsyo - Russian for "Radio Everything"). Late in 2007, it was announced that the station would be changing the audio format to a Dance-intensive Rhythmic Top 40 format as "Pulse 87".'

A question I once posed some friends: when you do air-sax, is the inevitable song "Careless Whisper" or "Baker Street?"

Don't forget Coven, Joe.

Wasn't the Billy Jack theme by Coven? That always struck me as one of the most hilarious musical Trojan horses of all time-- the rest of their material was overtly Satanic psych-rock!

(d'oh-- just saw Paul's post!)
  Mon. 5/14/18 11:04am Brendan:

@jbubz that probably qualifies as the most asked question here. It’s called Crystal Clear - a demo by Kevin Ayers
  Mon. 5/14/18 11:04am paul:

Both groups did it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 11:05am Mick:

Original Caste did it first, but not on the Billy Jack soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 11:05am Mick:

Pretty sure Coven was the Billy Jack version

Mr. Monday?

What Mick said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 11:07am The Oscar:

And strictly speaking, IIRC, the Billy Jack version just the singer from Coven with a session band, but she demanded they use the Coven name to promote her band.

honestly didn't know Roky Erikson was alive
  Mon. 5/14/18 11:07am Mark in Toronto:

In Canada, Mr. Monday was a charted hit by the Original Caste, but it did not chart in the USA

I had the same thought @Brendan. But I held back.

Brendan answered that question better then I.

Sachiko was bummed that she didn't have her "Misora" guitar with her to play "Blue Fish" since the action is so different, but I think she did fine!
  Mon. 5/14/18 11:21am Brendan:

I must confess I don’t understand Japanese but the ‘bap a dap a doo doo’ part somehow speaks to me . I think we all retain a lifelong memory of those sounds as a baby . Or maybe we regurgitate the babble sounds adults serenaded us with as infants.

@Brendan: I'll briefly translate the songs afterwards at Sachiko's request!

Instant goosebumps: this session is sounding incredible, Joe! Thanks so much for making it happen. Cheers to you and Sachiko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 11:30am Joe McG:

You bet, Jordan! I love this new song "Wings of Light"!
  Mon. 5/14/18 11:30am Brendan:

Thanks Joe ( and Sachiko for being so thoughtful). They sound great in any lingo. And no sweat about not playing Blue Fish. I hear she makes up for it with a mean version of Green Grass and High Tides as the closer. Got my lighter ready.

Thank you and Sachiko for this set - I agree this new song is beautiful!

Thanks Joe. I know the artists don't get much but I may just have to go to the iTunes store and purchase her songs there.
