I followed Yacht Rock with baited breath. I always say the most mundane parts of history are the most interesting, particularly if you're making it up.

Another question -- did you guys coin the term Yacht Rock? I learned it through the series. There is a traveling ensemble now called "The Yacht Rock Revue" that just played in NY this past weekend.

Any strong influences from film or tv on the show?

When you're compelled to split each week between the two, choosing isn't so much an option, but NJ is my first love.

I think there's a lot of late Foreigner asking for attention. As YR addressed, those artists entered a whole new paradigm in which a whole new bunch of musicians turned smooth.

Salieri the Mozart rival (in film anyway)...

I never heard of 'Yacht Rock' before y'all on FMU recently - !
...Off to Wiki to find out...

Pete from Boston (and NJ):

High five to you, Nat. Glad I got in when I did and put the radio on. You scored a coup by some of us -- Yacht Rock is the kind of smart but unpretentious parody that is pretty rare on TV these days. Kind of a live Mad Magazine.

Reading YachtRockWiki:
...I would extract Paul Simon & Steely Dan as OK from this bunch...Journey is comprised of former Santana band people, I understand...
- Reading Wiki, it is interesting that John Oates & Michael McDonald are quoted as boosters of the show! Credit to them for that.

fun fact: the band survivor was lost in a splunking "accident" in 2010!

Thanks again for the good show. Have to sleep for the long sail back across Connecticut. Goodnight all.

...If I'd been clued in ahead of time (well - I still haven't seen it), I - maybe if it made sense - would've asked him about how he relates to 'Spinal Tap', or 'I'm Not There' the impressionistic Dylan film by Todd Haynes - ??

- I frankly am surprised I have to defend my position as much & as often as I do of hating exactly a lot of this music & culture of that style & era - I almost wonder if I would feel the show was mean enuff for my tastes! But it looks like it's brilliant. Thanx for another Cultural clueing in, FMU...

Metal heads love 'Spinal Tap' - yeah - ??
...There's always the line that you have to love something - be that knowledgable about it - to parody something that well...
- There was The Rutles before Spinal Tap - don't forget!
- That was brilliant!

...I think Spinal Tap had more influence - on a broad cultural level - than maybe McLaren & the Pistols - in turning the idea of Musicians as Heroes & RockBand people as paragons of Kewl inside-out. That's what it did: Put the Inside on the Outside...'Decline of Western Civilization: Part 2' is exactly like Spinal Tap - except a real doc. !...Both are Funny - *&* Painfull...

...There was a film about a Punk band whose singer had died but they reunited for exploitation - & their misadventures - but do not remember the name for the life of me! It was a bit 'heavy' & a good one...
