@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: it's a comp
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am Greg from Bloomfield:

I often thought of doing a competitive show where 2 DJs square off in a song-for-song battle every week, and the commenters/callers vote for who wins. I don't have a name though. Maybe "BattleBots".

Three Hours of B Flat with Steve

Sounds like the Clay vs Fabio battles a bit Greg. I like it.
Avatar 10:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I would play only comps & 'OverCompensating'
- so @ least I wouldn't be over-commenting...

mine would be called sound hole...play everything through delay

@Marcel: Just thought of that after I typed it! But my friends and I used to do it with mix tapes in college...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am Greg from Bloomfield:

I would seriously listen to that, Marcel! If once a week I could get caught up on what's popular, WITHOUT commercials, I'd totally do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Marcel M:

@Greg: haha. I could probably just do it live from a Bodega with their speakers miked.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am common:

hee, greg
  11:10am P-90:

@Marcel: Greg from Bloomfield is right, you really hit on something there: there really just might be a place on FMU for something like a one-hour show of actual Top Forty. A DJ with just the right touch could keep us up on what's actually popular, play what's at the top of the charts, and maybe contextualize by discussing some background on each artist, maybe play a previous track by same artist or a related track.
Call it "These Darned Kids Today...!" or something.
Avatar 11:12am Chris M.:

@Cheyenne @Greg from Bloomfield: i just re-watched Bio-Dome a few weeks ago and let me tell you it is NO LAUGHING MATTER.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am Greg from Bloomfield:

I actually think this could be a thing! Stashu did a Top 40 show recently and it was super great.
Avatar 11:15am Chris M.:

@Marcel M @P-90: it does sound like a nightmare
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Andrew Waterloo:

For mainstream what would be interesting is a <3 minute show. That covers 1 song, but mostly talks over it.
Avatar 11:17am steve:

DJ Stashu and friends recently did a Top 40 countdown. it was good, and merciful, because mostly they'd stop the songs after like 30 seconds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Andrew Waterloo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am Polyus:

The Jim Price show, with Detroit Tigers broadcaster and former player Jim Price. One minute to ramble or make up a song about the art of pitching - it would be every bit as avant garde and confusing as WFMU's Jim Price.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am fleep:

A call-out talk show, where I call people randomly instead of waiting around for them to call me.
Avatar 11:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah, cold-calling - w/ trashy local bands covering the current Top40 disgracefully. Cold Covers.
  11:28am P-90:

"...the burden of listening to it" Hahaha!
Perfectly put, Marcel, I agree. In theory, though, like I said, a DJ with just the right sense of the audience she/he is breaking this bad news to, and the right, humorous way of trying to interpret its appeal and exploring how awful so much of it is and why, just might find the formula to pull it off. I heard Stashu's top forty show, and yeah, you can get away with just playing "excerpts" of some songs. Pseu Braun also deserves mention, on her Friday night show she would play some of the arguably "better" new songs, nestled amidst more "freeform-friendly" fare.

'The Burden of Listening' - w/ Nat Roe - Bending everything...because...
Avatar 11:31am MenfussMike:

what the hell is this guy bitchin' about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Andrew Waterloo:

It could be very humorous to have a bunch of 40 something culture-nerds trying to explain to other 40 something culture-nerds what their adolescent children are listening to, and trying to explain the appeal and relevance without being dismissive or snarky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am fleep:

MenfussMike - Fjords. They hate 'em.
  11:35am P-90:

Another approach might be to play some current "hot" tracks, each followed by one or more tracks that were at the top of the charts in the same week in another decade: the 50's, 60's, 70s, 80s. Invite listeners to cal and discuss why the older songs were so much less crappy, and whether rock/pop wil ever make a comeback. "The Decline and Fall of Top Forty".

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am paul b:

Curious. I woke up this morning with the song Amie by the Pure Prarrie League stuck in my head -- after breakfast I dialed it up on the YouTube. Which helpfully suggested I might want to listen to the Marshall Tucker Band next. This song in fact. Mmm good song I thought maybe later. It's always later than you think.
Avatar 11:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@paula: Yes - Townshend deffo does 'Country' licks. That means this Southern band sounds like an English band doing Country Blues pastiche.
