Hey Sheila, you're only a year older than me (I was born in '78!)
Avatar 3:28pm Cecile:

Yeah, but you would have probably gotten sick of it and ended up listening to Anne Murray and selling all your records. Like my sister-in-law.

1977 was pretty damn great.

I hear a stronger Jimmy Webb/Beach Boys/and that one orchestral kind of pop band from the UK that isn't the Divine Comedy. That other one.

No, not Tindersticks. A lot more smooth. A mostly one-man deal.

@Cecil - that's the problem with most pop music: all that mediocre stuff we've recorded in our brains over the years, and won't ever be able to get out of our heads, try as we may

I want to say Microdisney, but it's not Microdisney and they don't really fit.
  3:58pm Cooh John:

Though not around for John Lee Hooker, alive for the rest of the music. Heard it all on CKLW. If you never heard of that station, ask station manager Ken.
