One of the best songs of all time. I have 5 versions now on 7" (Shangri-Las, Pussycats, Rita Monica, Silvana Velasco and (as so soft, so warm) Nu-Luvs) and all are great.

@John - I feel you. To be honest though, I was born and raised and Texas and I love it despite the bootlickers and nazis that also call it home. The thing about right wingers is that their evil streak is so flagrantly showboated around - something that is, to me, less sinister than the evil liberal capitalists of California/NY/elsewhere.

Just as the USA is a mosaic of Blue around cities & coasts
- & Red in more rural regions
- so this pattern tends to repeat within States again - like a fractal...(Austin. & the rest of Texas - Portland & Oregon...)
LBJ signing the Civil Rights Act in 1964 lost the South to the Left in many respects - & correlates to the parting of ways of working class Folk & conservative Country - I think...
But there are also Cosmic Cowboys like Willie Nelson - yes!

Hey, just noticed it's Chuck Berry's birthday today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm tim from champaign:

Thanks for the name, Sheila. I'd like to explore Dr Hart's work more. One more question, Sheila, what was the name of the conference you attended?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm tim from champaign:

Thanks, P-90

Picked up a Versus cd at the thrift shop a short while back. Still had the Teen Beat mail order catalogue insert. It gave me nostalgia and anguish for all the releases I missed out on.

Augh, work related meeting pulls me away from my desk and I MISSED RITA AND HER TIARAS. Drat. Sheila, let me know if you find multiple copies of that 45 in any dollar bins.

Taylor Dayne was my favorite artist of this time period that I didn't admit at the time.

I can feel my body rock. not really. I mean. sorta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Passaic River Blues:

"Gone with the Wind Is My Love" remains one of my favorite things Sheila has ever aired. Divine transcendence by way of heartbreak.
  4:53pm brainiac:

Has anyone seen the This American Life show where Tig Notaro meet s Taylor Dane? Touching, really.

Wow, that Honey & The Bees single must be the most expensive one you played.

Hey, I got my record!

hey, what's Stashu doing on that record cover?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Michael 98145:

@RobK, your record had to arrive via satellite ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Rob Kopp:

I wrote an email to Joe McGasko that I felt so naked on the comment board without that 45-vinyl. That must have helped!

Maybe ten years ago, Taylor was on a VH1 show documenting an attempted comeback. I remember cringing at some of the advice they were giving her.
  5:04pm ?:

I just rang Seth Swirsky composer of Tell It To My Heart who is one of my best friends out here in Pasadena. I assured him you guys were playing it unironically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Rob Kopp:

Robert Scott was in the Bats, but I think he didn't release that song himself before 1995 as Before We Go Under when he was in The Magick Hats.
  5:07pm P-90:

GOTTA love Vicki Carr!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Michael 98145:

does VH1 still exist?

Yes Virginia, there is a Mount Hope

Mount Hope is famous. For its radio transmitter.
