I was going to outside to gasp in the smog, but on second thought ...
Avatar 6:15pm solo mon:

We went for a very very short walk about an hour ago, ric. now my ears and throat are burning. and it looked like it was gettin better for a minute :-(
Avatar 6:16pm Mr Fab:

We can't tell the kids to stop watching that tv, go out and get some fresh air...
Avatar 6:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Solo, I went to the target in Pasadena for I'm not sure why and now I'm paying the price....what the hell was I thinking!?!
Avatar 6:19pm Mr Fab:

Look at Shangri-La go, playing one tune after another, updating the playlist on time, even popping into the chat. And she claims to be a radio newbie? Fake news!
Avatar 6:20pm shangri-lounge:

I mean, I did do college radio...?!?
Avatar 6:21pm Franco Twinkie:

My fingers are already sore from drumming on the table.
Avatar 6:21pm shangri-lounge:

twas many moons ago, however!
Avatar 6:22pm Puggy Weissmuller:

College Radio is such a cool thing. I did "community" radio at FreeForm Portland. GeorgyGirl -- in the UK they don't have college radio but they do have it in Hospitals and she did it there.
Avatar 6:23pm solo mon:

bad loser= great song!
Avatar 6:23pm Puggy Weissmuller:

Vocals are sounding great!
  Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Paul in Ridgewood:

DJ Shangri-La is absolutely killing it with this playlist! Sounds awesome!
Avatar 6:29pm Mr Fab:

Well, i should say a newbie to WFMU home-studio broadcasting, which some find pretty tricky. Some DJs don’t even want to deal with it and are off the air..
Avatar 6:30pm shangri-lounge:

Thanks @Mr Fab, much appreciated! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Rich in Washington:

I was the world's oldest college DJ. I did about a year at a tiny college station at the campus right next to my workplace. Their 'air-room' was in a tiny brick building that also housed the campuses boilers.
Avatar 6:32pm solo mon:

I did Collage radio once: I glued newspaper clippings all over a radio.
Avatar 6:33pm Mr Fab:

Updating the playlist, going on chat, internet/computer stuff, all while trying to spin them platters....some old-school DJs can’t do it. So for a WFMU stream show debut, you’re doing great-tastic
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

Why must they hide the college radio station kids away?
Avatar 6:33pm Puggy Weissmuller:

@solo that's decoupage radio?
Avatar 6:34pm Puggy Weissmuller:

Sheenas jungle is the gold leaf of decoupage
Avatar 6:35pm Mr Fab:

I play Wipeout on any drumming surface before me. Not the most original choice, but super fun to play, and everyone knows it.
Avatar 6:35pm solo mon:

Puggy aha! Or is it Radio Mache?
Avatar 6:36pm Puggy Weissmuller:

I still have my Fatboys and the Beach Boys collaboration where they covered Wipeout
Avatar 6:37pm Puggy Weissmuller:

maybe I should finally let it go... I could probably use 10cents
Avatar 6:37pm shangri-lounge:

the fatboys? do i wanna know?!? ha. (yes, of course i do)
Avatar 6:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Night Rider! This is the greatest!!!!
Avatar 6:38pm solo mon:

clicky star for night rider!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm suzyhotrod:

Go get em, Shangri-La! I was scared to use the chat board for months when I started. Skillz!
Avatar 6:38pm shangri-lounge:

haha, suzayyyy!
Avatar 6:40pm Mr Fab:

I had the pic sleeve 45! I love the (orig) Beach Boys, the Fat Boys, and “Wipeout” and all three combined to create the stupidest thing I ever heard, ha ha. Terrible, terrible record, and a Top 40 hit, of course
Avatar 6:40pm Puggy Weissmuller:

@shangri you're better off never hearing that particular record heh
Avatar 6:41pm Puggy Weissmuller:

the video for it combines pro wrestling. Yeh it's allll pretty stooopid
Avatar 6:43pm shangri-lounge:

pro-wrestling is *~the theatre*~ for some.
Avatar 6:44pm Mr Fab:

Hey suzy! Yeah, i was just saying how i know some old -school DJs who cant handle anything beyond 2 turntables and a mic. But shangri-La aint scared o’ nuthin.
Avatar 6:45pm Puggy Weissmuller:

^totally true! Back that up 100%
Avatar 6:45pm Franco Twinkie:

This is such rumpus room rumba.
Avatar 6:48pm Wild Honey:

Ask the Stars is such a haunting tune. Great WFMU debut! Really diggin’ the sounds
Avatar 6:49pm shangri-lounge:

Thanks, Wild Honey! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm suzyhotrod:

yeah, @Mr Fab, broadcasting from home has been a whole world of technical messies for the DJs. You Sheenas are way ahead of many with dialing it in.

I get so excited to hear your voice on mic breaks! YAY!!
Avatar 7:05pm shangri-lounge:

Yes, so good! I have a bit of a Scorpio Rising inspo here with this playlist.
Avatar 7:09pm Dave the Spazz:

@Mr. Fab: Better everyday, thanks. All of these amazing new shows on the streams have been a real tonic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Rich in Washington:

Glad you're on the mend, Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm suzyhotrod:

I would be remiss to not shout hello to Dave the Spazz. HELLO, SPAZZ!!
  7:14pm ARB:

Hello from Gate 62, terminal 2 at the Mexico City aeropuerto, got to catch a few songs at least!
  7:14pm ARB:

Boarding now but excited for your show!
Avatar 7:14pm Mr Fab:

I like how the interview with Dave for a NJ paper re his covid battle never mentioned his real name. He was “Dave the Spazz” throughout the piece, heh heh.
Avatar 7:15pm shangri-lounge:

Thanks, ARB! Have a very safe flight!! :)
Avatar 7:17pm Mr Fab:

Hola ARB! When ARB was in Mexico, we had DJs in 5 countries

The musicians in The Sunday Group were a surf band the week before they cut that record, and the singer was in the drama club at his continuation high school.

WFMU is a 24 hr. music and sound banquet with all the streams

My continuation school didn't have a drama club.

it's hard to ignore the obvious influence this song had on the AFLAC commercials.

Singing along with these tunes!

Congratulations on your smashing debut shangri!
