Blimey! Chris Rea?! This is almost Teesside yacht rock! Nt sure they have yachts n Middlesborough
  Fri. 12/11/15 3:13pm modchick:

Wow, that IS the epitome of adult contemporary! Would we also classify this as Yacht Rock? It has that yacht rock gloss. Thoughts?

@Adrian in London Chris Rea is part of my DNA thanks to my dad. I do love this song!

It's got a yacht rock feel to it to me. Your dad was into Chris Rea? I once saw the movie Chris rea made, about a boy who wanted a Ferrari or something. Shirley bassey wa in it. *whispers* It was;t very good.

Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" counts as awesome.

Gerry Rafferty is totally Yacht Rock.

A buddy of mine layered multiple instances of "Baker Street" using an LP with an eccentric hole. If it's yacht rock, the seas are stormy.

It is awesome @JakeGould

  Fri. 12/11/15 3:41pm Adrian in London:

Stereolab are definitely not yacht rock. They are, however, a nightmare if you're a collector. They put out so many coloured vinyl sevens and limited editions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/11/15 3:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Wasn't the Captain and Tennille the 70s yacht rock? Maybe they were muskrat rock. It was years ago.

Howdy Boob-Boom. When I think about my early FMU listening days, Stereolab comes to mind.

Er, we must give @Adrian in London the credit! Thanks from him

@Kevin Read on Twitter today that some troll had accused a journalist of not caring if parts of London were subject to Sharia law, except autocorrect had changed it to Shania Twain!
  Fri. 12/11/15 3:47pm Mark R:

I honestly never heard this term "Yacht Rock" before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/11/15 3:48pm Baumer!:

My introduction to Dionne Warwick was as a child when she hosted Solid Gold and I think did some life insurance commercials for seniors. So later in life, I was shocked to discover just how good her music was.

  Fri. 12/11/15 3:50pm Mark R:

1) There are no parts of London subject to Shariah law. It's like a hypothetical "What if spiders had guns?" construct by the crackpots 2) Shania Twain is going to be my wife some day, and she can do anything she wants. so watch your filthy mouth!
  Fri. 12/11/15 3:50pm Adrian in London:

@AlyDukes Nah, yacht rock's a thing, honest. Mind you, I only found out about vaporwave yesterday.

@djsheilab you're the first person I have talked to who seems to remember Solid Gold! Not that Solid Gold comes up that often in casual conversation, but more than one would suspect.

Trying to make a funny, but thanks for the bg info on yacht rock!
  Fri. 12/11/15 3:54pm Mark R:

I remember Solid Gold (I think). It was syndicated and I think they showed it on Saturday afternoons when no one was home.
  Fri. 12/11/15 3:55pm modchick:

Solid Gold should totally come up in conversation. How does no one else remember that? Saturday night at 6pm (or wast it 7pm). Remember the dancer with the long braid who would dramatically lay all over everything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/11/15 3:56pm Baumer!:

I have hazy recollections of it, but I could have sworn it was an NBC show on Saturday Nights for awhile, and then in the later years NBC dropped it and it switched to syndication? Or maybe it was in syndication all along. Man the things I remember from being a kid is weird haha.

Too young fro Solid Gold. Soul Train was still a thing when I was a kid though. It was right after Saturday morning cartoons too. X-Men, Batman, Gargoyles, then dance around to Diana Ross or TLC. Good stuff.

Pretty sure "Solid Gold" was always syndicated. That and "Soul Train" were the cool music shows on syndication.

No!!! Spotify makes terrible software which keeps breaking our computers!

And it refuses to remember that you've told it not to start every time you log in, and it doesn't give you the option not to apply updates (which re-break a setup you might just have gotten stable).

We really need to find some alternative to Spotify. I'd like to eradicate it from the station. Anybody have suggestion?

I have so much rare stuff in my itunes library i can't break away and use Spotify full time. I also don't like how they went away from a desktop app to a web interface. I feel a bit defeated where I have just backed up all my local files, deleted them and just use Match/Apple Music. Apple Music is basically just for adding what songs I can find from this show at this point haha

I was almost killed in a car accident because the driver was texting and driving. She ran a stop sign and hit my car into the lane of oncoming traffic. I was injured badly
Avatar Fri. 12/11/15 4:48pm djsheilab:

@Marc15 That is awful. Texting and driving is rampant. And I don't know what it's gonna take for people to learn just how dangerous it is. I definitely learned my lesson last week and am SO lucky no one got hurt.

I've found a lot of stuff on Spotify that I hadn't found anywhere else. I hadn't synced my ipod in 5 years and when I tried this past summer, iTunes deleted 7 years or accumulated music. I wept all night and swore I would never use iTunes again.

@βrian: there's no need to use iTunes even for that - VLC is a fine choice for listening to streams. Way more lightweight than iTunes, and not prone to those sudden user-interface redesigns which always seem to be aimed at pushing a product or service to the front rather than serving users.

I do most of my WFMU listening through the radio app on the 3rd generation Apple TV. The rest I do through the iOS app on the go.

For those who miss when iTunes was a good way to index your own music you had physically on your own computer... note that several formerly-iTunes-using DJs with gigantic collections of music have been migrating to JRiver Media Center:

jriver.com...

Media Center's main difficulty is that it probably just does too much stuff, so the interface can seem a little complicated, but people get used to it, and come to trust the software more than iTunes. And you can configure it to show less stuff.

Available for Mac OS, Windows and Linux. The visual design is still a little bit uncomfortably Windows-y on other platforms because Windows is where it originated, but the Mac port is now solidly usable.

@Jeff - Ditto for VLC. That thing gives me no problems. I haven't messed with Spotify, but I have used Google Play Music on my Android phone. I searched "Hallogallo" and it played it and a bunch of other songs that are similar to it, which was what I wanted that day.

Is winamp still a thing?

...geez - what is all this...maybe I'm lucky (sorta - in a way) in having old computers that won't update newer versions of iTunes ??
...Somebody took up WinAmp & saved it.

I think they recently went out of business?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/11/15 4:59pm Jeff:

A lotta people swear by Winamp, and keep using hoarded copies of it it steadily.

The original project got shut down and there have been no new updates in quite awhile, but I understand there are efforts underway to revive it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/11/15 4:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...but I don't think they're updating WinAmp again yet, or supporting anything related to it...

Can't go wrong w/ anything arranged by Vannier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/11/15 5:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

You can still stream w/ WinAmp - but I think the lack of updates & support shows up in little ways - like the stream addresses staying listed, rather than station names (?) - which is awkward interface. I always liked you could choose skins & such...
I'm fine now w/ iTunes to do all audio in one place (streams, lists, podcasts, iPod programming/loading) - so I hope I don't update it one day to Horrors you all speak of...
