My impression is, once you get to megasuperduperstardome (unless you are the Beatles, Stone, a few other exceptions), there is generally a backlash, and you don't hear them often on places like WFMU. Not my personal opinion on Mac, like them.

@doctorjazz: You should do a playlist search of "Fleetwood Mac" on WFMU's playlist — they have been played often and consistently since our playlists began in 2001. The Mac are definitely on the front end of WFMU's very, very, very "long tail"!

I've been avoiding upgrading iTunes for years for that exact reason. Fact is, I'm like four OS's behind on my Mac, mainly because a new OS will inevitably come with the current iTunes. I'm really glad, actually, to know that others are having the same experience. I was beginning to worry that it was me.

Thank you, Sheila. As a woman, I have trouble finding music... because Apple has changed iTunes and I now have to scroll through 20k freaking songs to find something (instead of just being able to pull it up on a small seasonally curated selection of music on my iPhone). So I've just started using Spotify... Jimmy's competitor. Ha.

@Gaylord-I didn't do any research, just my very unscientific impression having FMU on many hours a day at the office, but I'm glad to hear them any time. Bands do often have a waxing and waning of interest over time, and some do come back after the "sick of hearing them all the time" phase has passed.

Denim was the answer to Felt, not Suede. Felt was the answer to Suede. A long time ago i arrived in London, turned on the TV and there was Denim's lead singer singing "I'm Against the 80's" and i thought this is going to be great.

Never use iTunes...use JRiver and listen to a Pono player, Neil's player.
  Fri. 11/20/15 4:51pm modchick65:

I understand. I have so many MP3s, and I too would like something with which to satisfactorily manage them... because iTunes is so no longer it. I'm just always apprehensive about those smaller company programs because the companies often stop upgrading or they just disappear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/20/15 4:52pm Andrew Waterloo:

My portable music players are an old Sanyo with a couple Coil albums, and my phone with a few saved WFMU shows.
  Fri. 11/20/15 4:52pm modchick65:

@KP. Felt were founded in 1979, so they can't be the answer to Suede. :)

You're very welcome! Neil is my main man! I want to picket the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to get him inducted. Come on people! I mean...Green Day? Neil needs to be in there!

@doctorjazz:Please keep in mind that WFMU has a playlist roughly 100,000 larger than any other radio station (not hyperbole), and you may appreciate that even hearing Fleetwood Mac here once a week is a lot!

@modchick65 I hear ya. I too have a large library so it's quite daunting to move everything elsewhere. Feel a bit stuck here.

The genius of 60s music is how they made anxst ridden lyrics sound so upbeat and exuberant. How do they do it? Sheila you are a goddess!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/20/15 4:55pm doctorjazz:

Many players will import your iTunes music, I believe JRiver (which can be gotten for free under the name Ponomusic player, or something like that) does it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/20/15 4:55pm Gaylord Fields:

I also have encased my old iTunes in amber by never "updowngrading" to a recent version.

RE: Fleetwood Mac. Great band in all incarnations. But no radio station needs to play Hotel California ever again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/20/15 4:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

I think WFMU plays more music in a 3 hour set than most radio stations play in a week.

And, I still like to hear Hotel California (after being quite sick of it for a while).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/20/15 5:06pm Gaylord Fields:

@MONEYBAG$: There is such a thing as a "WFMU hit": usually new releases that have caught on with more than one DJ in a given month. But my guesstimate is that the most popular song in a given week would get 3-5 plays.
  Fri. 11/20/15 5:09pm Dean from Baltimore:

Save Your Soul is a blast - it's usually held in the Lithuanian Community Center, a massive church-like relic with spires and many mirrored surfaces inside. I've seen J. Waters there

I miss my local "northern soul" nights. Just know about quasi-mod parties right now.
(By the way I'm back from Wire concert. ... loud ... well, teenage nostalgia, so to say. But some people who never heard of them before were seriously amazed.)

Would the Baltimore soul night happen to take place in the Lithuanian Hall? I was at a Night of 100 Elvises there once, and it was pure fabulous.
  Fri. 11/20/15 5:21pm majorwaxbuildup:

Yes Modchick65 you are correct.

@statoj I think it's only been going on for 5ish years.... The Lithuanian hall is off MLK Blvd, near the UM Biopark

I wonder who played guitar on that Adjani song? The style sounded very familiar. Gainsbourg?

Been out at a show so will listen on the catch-up, unless you want to start again from the beginning now? X

Oh, Pulp; met Jarvis at a fun fair the other week. He said he'd been on the ghost train and was scared; his wife had made him keep his eyes open!

I was there. Blondie was my first ever favorite band, and, in 1982, they released "Island of Lost Souls." Even at age 11, I was like, "This isn't that good."
