There's this video of her quite early on - some 'Hootenanny' show: like Galadriel visits HeeHaw (not that they were bad for her or anything - it just is...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Phillippe Bastille:

@flashback depends on what old is defined as and what the context is. I loathe classic rock as a format. Most of those songs I was sick of when they first came out, but when they're thoughtfully inserted in a set (Pseu Braun and EFD are especially adept at this) I can really appreciate them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Rob Kopp:

For lovers of Nederbeat: Last week saw the release of 8CD box Diggin' in the goldmine - Dutch beat nuggets. I probably have 99% of the music already, but the book that comes with it (10"-format) is simply fantastic. www.clear-spot.nl...

@Revolution as I have gotten older I am gravitating more and more to freeform stations where the djs can still give their opinions on the music and the world in general, the days of me just listening to the same bullshit day after day is over, this station fits the bill nicely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Rev Rabbit I actually remember the exact moment when I chose freeform stations (or what passed for freeform) over the mainstream. Stands out as one of the handful of watershed moments in my life. I was laying in bed at about 16 years old, switching between stations on my little brown plastic clock radio with the scraggly wire antenna. Went to switch from WCVT (Towson's college station) to WLPL or a station of a similar ilk, and then said, nah...

I am looking forward to a big work day fixing my camper tomorrow and am planning on listening to the Radio Thrift Shop archive. this station is a time machine and a rocket ship, a friend and a cozy home!

as far as movies go, the anything goes feel of the late 60`s through to the 80`s seemed stronger then now. that is why i like older movies better. i still enjoy todays movie. just not as much

with the interweb, you never HAVE to listen to crappy radio ever again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Phillippe Bastille:

I think its actually a great time to be a music fan. I'd be lost without the internet and access to stations and streams all over the globe. I can stream music from wherever over my phone and bluetooth it to my truck radio. (did I just use bluetooth as a verb? {shudder})
  4:19pm John from Florham Park:

@revoulitian rabbit I listen to stations from Australia and a couple from Canada to hear some great music
  4:19pm JasonInBoston:

Oh MY GOD! This Valorie Keys version of "Listen Here" is GREAT!
  4:20pm sweet cheri:

hey greetings and happy Friday Sheila, Jocelyn and everybody!! long time no see Sheila and Jocelyn!! how's life been treating you lately??

This doesn't sound like 1968 at all. Great track.

Something to consider: There were many Small Broadcasters on the Interwebz who got shut down by a change in Royalty Laws that meant they couldn't keep up financially - while Spotify & giants still pay pennies on millions of plays...one for Techtonic, perhaps...& the Internet Providers scoop up profits for bringing all of it - & I doubt they pay a red cent for any Content @ all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Phillippe Bastille:

@JFFP do you ever listen to Like a Version? Its from an Aussie station. They have Australian acts cover popular songs. Was just listening to Julia Jacklin's slowed down, country-ish version of the Strokes "Someday" a couple hours ago on their YouTube stream. Alex Lahey did a great version of "Torn" on there as well
  4:23pm sweet cheri:

it's really great to see you all here!!! but sorry to be late to the party!!!!

M Bastille, the verb is just the coat rack the rest of the sentence hangs on!

So I wonder if the words or the music came first on listen here.

Just kidding. That had to be a former jazz Insteon
  4:24pm John from Florham Park:

@michael there is a station called WDHA which I listened too back in high school and when I got my lab top a couple of years ago I started listening to the Sunday morning show called all mixed up, which was pretty good but the guy played. the same crap Sunday after Sunday which got very old after a while

@djshelia - I know I've heard that song before, but as an instrumental. Google tells me its originally by Eddie Harris, a name I'm unfamiliar with...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Phillippe Bastille:

I can do that
  4:30pm JasonInBoston:

Re: Listen Here: It's a jazz song by Eddie Harris, covered by multiple people. Brian Auger's version is absolutely tremendous.

@RRN63 I listen to the other streams too like the drummer stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm JtotheK:

As JasonBoston said re: Listen Here - yep, jazz track by Eddie Harris. Covered by other jazz artists (there's a Freddie McCoy 45...) and there are other vocal covers, too.

Eddie Harris was a staggering great sax player.
RR's EddieHarris Story: I saw him in SantaBarbara w/ a local pickup band. He SHAMED the Rhythm Section by telling them to Sit Out - & doing much better just clacking the keys on his sax. This I will remember!...Soon after, he passed.
