Wow. Dionne Bacharach. Wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm listener 126464:

Hello Gaylord, everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for the wishes, Linda Lee! Bing a kid and hearing the adult pop of Dionne/Burt/Hal allowed me to figure out that growing up wouldn't be so foreign and mysterious.
Avatar 8:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah grown up music for the youth revolution. So part of but distinct from the rest...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Wow every time with that voice and those words and that music and that production.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Chop Scott:

Good Evening Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gaylord Fields:

Hello, listener 126464. Good evening, Chop Scott!
  8:21pm Dean:

My favorite pop song is probably Bacharach's "Mexican Divorce" as arranged and performed by him on his eponymous album with, I think, Cissy Houston (or perhaps an unnamed singer) doing the vocals. But The Drifters recorded it earlier, and Dionne was one of the backing singers along with Cissy, and that's where he discovered her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm patrick321:

Buona sera Gaylord and everyone. Digging this, as they used to say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Pauly from Clifton:

@Photocopy Cha Cha 200, I hope you're having a good evening listening to the sweet tunes!
  8:21pm James from Málaga:

España enjoying WFMU ....GOOD EVENING ALL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Dean: It's one of the early Burt songs that sounded like Burt, with all the syncopation and time signature quirks.
Avatar 8:22pm Linda Lee:

ho! DJ Georgy Girl & i talk about this all the time ~ certain songs that gave us a delicious preview of adult life, fascinating pictures. Pet Clark did a few of those. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Gaylord Fields:

@James from Málaga: ¡Buenas noches!
  8:23pm Dean:

Right, and by 1971, when he released the A&M album, he doubled down on the syncopation!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Gaylord Fields:

@patrick321: Buona sera.
Avatar 8:24pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:14 Handy Haversack: swimming every day. Hopefully for a month more or so. The lake I go now to is 10 miles away but no complaints, very few people there, water's clean and it's safe and serene, unlike the nearest beach, which seems to attract young vandals, who don't mind the security cameras...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gaylord Fields:

@Linda Lee: I recall that you and I are about the same age, but yes, that is exactly also what I feel about Dionne/Burt and Pet Clark/Tony Hatch. If being an adult was being reflected in those songs, I'm ready.
Avatar 8:26pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:21 Pauly from Clifton: I am, life is good with music like this.
Hope you had a happy birthday Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@Photocopy Cha Cha 2000: Thank you! It was quite lovely and, by necessity, low-key.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Handy Haversack:

Cha Cha, we got out of town last weekend, and our friends knew a swimming hole in a local creek, which was excellent -- though I did look up to see a snake about 15 cm from my face at one point, which led to a sustained bout of wading until I got my heart rate to get over it.
Avatar 8:28pm Bryce:

ahhhh, my sunday evening has suddenly smoothed out nicely. thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Ciggy:

@Linda Lee ~ Charmed to see a post from you. I think of my childhood listening to the transistor radio & our fondness of The Stones when I see your name.

@8:27 Handy Haversack: sounds scary - I am glad the only venomous snakes we have here are the adders, the bites of which won't kill you unless you are vulnerable (like small kids or the elderly and allergic) or very unlucky - a visit to the doctor has to be made of course after a bite but...
  8:32pm Dean:

My radio looked much like this: https://img1.etsystatic.com/000/0/6138107/il_fullxfull.232232927.jpg At night it was under my pillow at low volume. It was an education akin to nothing the internet can hope to achieve.

I can’t remember at all my 1st transistor radio. It’s likely still in the barn where I left it about 55 years ago.

I had a clock radio that I left on all night, starting around 11 or 12 years old.

I think the radio under the pillow thing was a big predictor of future wfmu listenership. Not foolproof but a "leading indicator"

There was nothing clandestine about my transistor-radio-under-the-pillow mode. It was simply the most comfortable, cozy approach to ending the day.
Avatar 8:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Born Nov.'63 - with a brother about nine years older. Right away records found their way in - but I wish I could visit my toddlerhood & hear what was on the radio then! The Beatles' cartoon show had me - & this tar is 1st grade with Yellow Sub lunchbox! & I've been adrift in the odyssey of Music's oceans ever since...
  8:51pm phat:

Fitting my mood. Missed the first part while talking to my dad again.

I had a red plaid lunchbox.
Avatar 8:53pm Linda Lee:

what's your age difference, chresti? did you help him discover what music was all about?
  8:54pm Dean:

Even then I wasn't into branding. My lunchbox was a generic Scotch plaid, and I never wanted one associated with third-party operations. And so it goes to this day. I oppose bumper stickers, hashtags, and branded t-shirts, with one huge exception: I routinely and proudly wear WFMU t-shirts.

This has been exactly the chillout that I required,

We're 3 1/2 years apart, and I influenced his taste somewhat, LL. My older brother, when he was still around, always had music playing on the family portable record player.
Avatar 9:00pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:54 Gaylord Fields: I wonder where my "little chemist" set (or something like that) is - also a microscope plus small vials with liquids the content of I have no idea of. I have heard that sometimes there were pretty toxic stuff there(this wouldn't be possible nowadays for sure) so very good I never tasted them - unlike that leaking alkaline battery as a 6 year old (I survived but oh boy did it taste bitter and did I scream or what)

  9:03pm Dean:

Cheese sandwich, mustard, and carrots. Once my mom gave me...what?!...dessert. It was a plastic-wrapped slice of cherry pie. (Get your minds out of the gutter, you slobs.) I took a couple bites and found it a bit chewy. Then I observed that the pie was supported by a slice of cardboard I'd been consuming. Because my mom never gave me processed foods--except for the Velveeta--I was not prepared for the pie.

Oh God... I really love this song!!!...
Avatar 9:20pm Linda Lee:

funny, this Temps side reminds me most of rediscovering our 'childhood' Motown in the early 80s. beautiful dance parties throughout the city that went on all night long.

Temps oh yeah!!

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: That's a Graham Gouldman song Little Frankie sang.

we also went for the pointed heels & sheath dresses again, though the hair was ratty white or dead black. we did the cat's eye makeup as well!

Rev~ oh yes! we saw the band whenever they were in town. my first concert, i'm sure! then they'd come by the house to hang a bit.

There must be a reason why this show is a rerun or pre-recorded or something???... because of the storm??...

Thanks for the birthday wishes to you, Matt Fiveash!
Avatar 9:27pm Linda Lee:

wow, what a perfect show so far. superb.
Avatar 9:28pm Joe B:

I read somewhere that the Temptations were against 'Beauty' being a single. I forget what they were allegedly campaigning for instead but were overruled by BG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gaylord Fields:

@CC: It's not a rerun. It's 100% new, just prerecorded yesterday. Only I have heard this show before. I do all my shows that way since the station lockdown, as do several other WFMU DJs.

@Joe B: BG left as many great songs in the vault as he released, so whatever he nixed was probably just as great.

That's really a good way to do it because now you can focus on the chat board instead of worrying about playing records!!!...:)

don't know why that iconic Nan Goldin photo has the date '1968' beneath it. that was 1980.

I kind of wish I wouldn't have shown up so late because I feel like commenting on almost every song!!!...like this jazz lobster!!!...:)

What came first? This "Hambone" or the Mothers' "Brown Shoes Don't Make It"?

Now I want a jazz lobster.
Avatar 9:35pm Linda Lee:

yes. the great thing was, you could get those vintage dresses for nearly nothing in thrift stores ~ even outdoor flea markets pretty common then. fantastic styles, beautiful fabrics.

@RobinSays: I miss you, dear friend! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm chresti:

Dean, I saw that, did not know him, looks like the carousel is/was a concession, which I did not know before, either.
