Avatar 7:44pm hyde:

this one is fantastic. always big on lata mangeshkar, but this is exceptional. the used-to-be designation about the video stores makes me a little bit sad (tho i realize time marches on)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Gary:

Time is not fair
Avatar 7:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Can you believe the arrangement on this? 'Bollywood' is a fascinating genre...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Gary:

This track trumps just about anything I can think of!

Avatar 8:01pm hyde:

psssst this show is really great.

also, i just realized that due to holidays, i neglected to listen to the sub saharan 70's show from last week, bonus listen while making baked goods this weekend!
Avatar 8:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

My reflexive brain was sure half a second this 'Anita' was something off Eno's 'Another Green World'...apparently - it predates it...
Avatar 8:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That set - all the way.
Avatar 8:11pm hyde:

like i always say when you talk about your pivot away from minnesota rock, me myself i still love babes in toyland! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Gary:

Oh, I super love Babes in Toyland! But, Gear Daddies ... I dunno
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Uncle Michael:

I was booking gigs for someone who was a labelmate of the Gear Daddies, briefly. We couldn't get the time of day from them..him...Jesperson...because he was so focused on them. Screw the Gear Daddies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gary:

Ha! Well, I did like them for a spell, I must admit
Avatar 8:19pm hyde:

@Gary haha. i will not make a case for Gear Daddies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gary:

I *might* like Trip Shakespeare if I heard them again. Not betting US dollars on it, but still
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Gary:

Not that my taste has improved one iota ... it's just that I can't understand the words now, so it's all good
Avatar 8:24pm hyde:

you can never listen to the same Trip Shakespeare record twice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gary:

They did a version of Pink Moon, if my memory isn't failing me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Scraps:

but everybody did pink moon (i swear)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

I will take your word for it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Scraps:

oh dear. i'm mostly wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Gary:

That makes two of us. And you know what they say about two wrongs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Scraps:

We must get on the internet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm melinda:

I was on a different track musically back then and never heard Trip Shakespeare, but my friends liked them. I'll have to find their Pink Moon.
Avatar 8:48pm hyde:

fwiw, i really liked thar Upper Hutt Posse .

hi melinda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm listener james from westwood:

I'd been wondering which song I'd heard that "mominamominamomina" in previously on the station, and now I have starred it!
