Haven't got the Hook-up for a couple of weeks, and I almost forgot just how stoked this theme song makes me for the next three hours of joyful jangle. Hope all the other Hookers are doing alright this fine Tuesday!

Good afternoon Pseu and fellow Hookers. Keep rockin' it. Hoping to be lifted from hell, if only for 3 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/7/18 12:33pm Bill in W.O.:

That I think of "Say No" as sort of a less spectacular song on Grand Prix just speaks to what a fabulous record that is. All killer, no filler. And it's a lovely change of pace tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 12:34pm mauri:

heu speu! Goodie muusic!
  Tue. 8/7/18 12:35pm andrewb:

Psue, thanks for the lead on the Badfinger doc. Truly one of the most depressing stories in rocknroll history. Followed it up with Nilsson's demo of "without you" and turned into a quivering mass of jelly.
  Tue. 8/7/18 12:36pm egould310:

Geez Pseu; your show today is an exact match of my Spotify random playlist. You have excellent taste in music. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 12:41pm Phillippe Bastille:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 12:48pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

This track sounds a bit like Sixpence None The Richer. Remember them? The big lush guitar strumming... But it's not. The music maybe 75% and the singer 50%.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 12:50pm Panda Penguin:

Ohhhhh I've been having a bit of a Delgados renaissance over the last couple weeks! Excellent choice, Pseu. A sorely underrated and much missed band.
Avatar Tue. 8/7/18 12:51pm Pseu Braun:

Can we refrain from comparing groups to more famous groups? It's tedious AF
  Tue. 8/7/18 12:52pm sue:

sweet sounds of the Delgados, thanks

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 1:10pm Doobois:

This is giving me goose bumps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 1:11pm Phillippe Bastille:

Can we compare less famous DJs to more famous DJs? For example, "Suzy Hotrod kinda sounds like Pseu Braun."

please...don't

I like both Tancred records. Still warming to this new one a bit, but a fan. Don't let that scare ya off, though. The debut really showed the Anna Waronker/that dog influence, which I dug. Cool hearing them on the radio, kinda haven't.

I have no judgement of you. I speak only of that one idea you shared.
Avatar Tue. 8/7/18 1:52pm SueAdynamo:

go psue! I remember being asked to make a sandwich for all the guys on one of these WFMU boards -- i was so startled that an FMU listener could be so base.
Avatar Tue. 8/7/18 1:54pm Pseu Braun:

Just cuz their Mom's voice is stuck in their heads they project that shit onto me and every woman. Losers.

Following this Karla Bonoff song with Helen Reddy's "Angie Baby" might be fatal.

Are there actually any songs where some guy is asking a lady to make them a sandwich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/7/18 2:53pm Krys O.:

@Jake, probably some swing song from the 1940s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/7/18 2:53pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

In my opinion I believe that compariing artists to each other is very useful. Sorry you don't see it that way, Pseu. This is the only board at WFMU where my practice of doing so has actually come under fire. Gee, I wonder why? Why does that only happen here? Hmnnn.
