I won't call 'em doo wop
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm ShelbyG:

goin low
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm chresti:

I only do when I hear them sing "doo wop"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Hi, others I haven't said hi to yet. "Doo-wop" to me conjures images of things, visual and aural, that I don't care for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ShelbyG:

@chresti: lol
Avatar 8:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...there is of course Don't Wop for people who don't care for Doo Wop...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm ShelbyG:

MFW: conjures images of people snappin fingers...I don't like doo wop.. but I like this!

The acoustics in the subway are ideal for singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm ShelbyG:

this is a gorgeous track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ShelbyG:

*Dutch Treat*...good strain
Avatar 8:25pm ChasG:

Was recently going through Val's eBay listings. He tags 'em as doo wop, even though...
Avatar 8:26pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Great link Mr. Better Wine than the one I’m currently sipping

I don't care what people call stuff.

Which Jack was happier, there's or The Who's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm ShelbyG:

@Uncle: agreed
  8:29pm Mike W.:

Grateful for this particular radio program this evening, thank you and
be safe everyone
Avatar 8:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Like - were The Coasters Doo-Wop ? :
en.wikipedia.org...
- maybe. Was Van Gogh an Impressionist? Maybe. But who cares?
A bad comparison - because Vincent was @ the end of Impressionism
- & The Coasters were *before* DooWop - I think is the crucial thing here...
Then again - they're calling contempo stuff now that's all slick & digital & manufactured 'Rhythm & Blues' - which always throws me...
Avatar 8:30pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Yeah. But what do you say when people ask you what kind of music you like? You gotta start using terms and most terms are inadequate to me and, anyway, I hate that question
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I don't care too much about labels either BUT as I said the term "doo-wop" conjures certain things I can find unappealing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm chresti:

I like most vocal harmony.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Uncle Michael:

What things, MFW?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm chresti:

The Fonzie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Sha Na Na. Bowzer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm ultradamno:

So the general consensus here is doo-won't
Avatar 8:33pm ChasG:

Sha Na NO!
Avatar 8:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The nub of it - maybe : Is DooWop appropriated R&B to sell to white children... which might be fine
...but - no *this* is the nub: A different animal.
Avatar 8:33pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Doo not
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm chresti:

How about doo-wah?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm ultradamno:

Diddy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm chresti:

Ha ultra!
  8:34pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

That group name for "Harmony Of Love" must have caused some problems at retail, back then and now...
Avatar 8:35pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

🎶’cause I really love you 🎶
Avatar 8:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ain't nobody want your Doo-Wah without the Diddy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Unc: How you feelin? Hope I didn't slow your recovery by mentioning Bowzer.
Avatar 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...as Carlin said - it's This, That... & the Other Thing. It's a set...
Avatar 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Good drugs UM ??
Avatar 8:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

One of my college professors, Alan Cooper, was in Sha Na Na. He can be seen singing lead on At The Hop in the Woodstock film.
Avatar 8:38pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Shelby, you on a smoke break?
  8:39pm middlebun:

We are missing the point. The music comes in way faster than it goes out. Every show on this station is entirely different from every other show. Such diversity dissolves genre issues. The song is worthy or it is not. Let the public decide. And throw them a bone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Mr. Fine Wine:

look out [woo-woo] for the mob [woo-woo]
Avatar 8:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Matt fromNola : Ask him about this :

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Mr. Fine Wine:

There's a male bass voice buried in the mix of this record
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm chresti:

I love woo-woo music.
Avatar 8:41pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

The diversity of genres flows on this station. Not so much most other places.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Women doing the woo-woos on this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm ultradamno:

When I hear the phrase doo-wop the image in my mind is the group that makes friends with Lorraine Newman in American Hot Wax
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Men doing the woo-woos on this one, female lead
Avatar 8:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The beauty of Downtown Soulville is it's a Genre program with an expert & delicious focus: One hour; 23 or 24 soul 45s.
I've calmed down a little being exposed to it all for the first time ever - but it still lives me slack-jawed & thrilled.
I reckon it's the most reliably wall-to-wall solid Hour in all of Broadcasting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm chresti:

Then there's woa woa songs.
Avatar 8:46pm ChasG:

> Ultradamno. Gimme five doms and a dom be doo be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Ha, RRN63, you're makin me blush over here. I'd quibble with "expert" and self-describe as extreme enthusiast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Mr. Fine Wine:

do-do-doo
Avatar 8:47pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

I like extreme enthusiast.
Avatar 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Okay - maybe there's a community of Vintage Soul Extreme Enthusiasts. But I ain't been one !
Complete revelation to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good evening, MFW. Thanks for cracking the doo-whip tonight!
  8:48pm middlebun:

Want a genre buster? Try Ken’s show on Wednesdays. Perhaps he is sending a message to everyone.

You want a genre buster try The Fantastic World of Kitten Sparkles on Sheena's Thursdays...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm ShelbyG:

@middlebun 8:39: astute observation
Avatar 8:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In another era - I used to think it was Eclectics versus Purists. (I'm thinking as a Creative type as well as Consumer.) But the whole culture got uglier. Then I came around to appreciating Purists as Preservationists. Hard to Eclectically like the best of everything - if nothing survives...
Besides - MFW likes other stuff I'm pretty sure... (We're in PostPostPostModern times after all.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm ShelbyG:

Ivan: my '72 belair MIGHT have cost more than your cheap swill 😘

Do you know how to drive, Mr. FW?
Avatar 8:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & from Deetroit no less !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Been driving since I was 16 but never owned one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm ShelbyG:

I'm driving a 2000 Ford Focus. I can't get into the passenger side. I almost have to crawl out of the driver door. I know just how to hit the dashboard to get the radio to work. My daily challenge? Avoid the potholes that will bottom out my pos. *shhhhh, I love you, car*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Had a couple of summers' worth of borrowed cars decades ago...since then just rented as needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm ShelbyG:

this song is IT

Money better spent on records than car, maintenance, repairs, insurance, etc.

The harmonies were uplifting. Thank you Mr Fine Wine

I guess I've never bought a car either come to think of it.
