Hey, ladies! Becky - you oughta dig this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Yes! I don’t know it. Have other stuff by them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Are they the farm team for the James Gang?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Becky Ebenkamp:

This band has such a distinct sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm chresti:

Yes, add those effects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Oh, Kitten and Noah: Do you have the 45 of that Screemer “They’re on Bell” promo? I’m gonna try to clean up David Smay’s mp3 if you want a copy.

I only saw The Runaways once, opening for the Ramones at The Santa Monica Civic in 1978. But I can say with all truthfulness they made quite an impression on me.
Avatar 3:32pm solo mon:

Constance Comment here!
  3:33pm Cheree July:

Did you play Cherry Bomb to check if I'm listening, lol?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm ARB:

I had a cat named CC for Constant Comment for about a week, but gave her to the census worker because she wouldn't shut up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Jan Turkenburg:

  3:39pm Cheree July:

Whut?! A New York Dolls diss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Becky Ebenkamp:

  3:42pm Debbie Davenport:

We've been saying Giuda wrong!

OMG! The Riot on Sunset Strip shall rise again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Half of this household says it wrong, too, Debbie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Becky Ebenkamp:

We hated Rod so much back then.
Avatar 3:44pm Constance C:

Please don’t give me up ARB or give up on me.
  3:46pm Cheree July:

Oooh! I learned about voguing from Toni Basil
Avatar 3:48pm Constance C:

Toni Basil! oh gosh one of the greats of choreography up there with Fosse in my opinion!
  3:51pm Debbie Davenport:

Thanks for saying that Becky. We have been listening to Giuda since we saw them open for the Damned in 2018. I should of realized this by now!!!
  3:51pm ARB:

DJs for silence
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Love this version
  3:52pm ARB:

Just kidding i heart music as well as idle chatter

I'm More Jafar than Ursula
Avatar 3:59pm Franco Twinkie:

You are definitely creating a Rodney like mood today, guys. At the time, it kind of annoyed the piss out of me, but today it sounds so right.
Avatar 4:02pm Kitten Sparkles:

It's actually better than those Rodney shows - we know about a lot more of this stuff now!
Avatar 4:03pm Kitten Sparkles:

Except it's not 1977
  4:06pm Debbie Davenport:

High speed king!
Avatar 4:08pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah, I agree. What was the problem back then? Well I think you know. A certain persons personality that was the glue that stuck it all together.
Avatar 4:10pm Kitten Sparkles:

Nah - it was just that most Junkshop was discovered by the people that put out the comps, and a lot of that was totally unknown here, even more than the sort of bigger stuff like Hello.
Avatar 4:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Well, it's all made from the same cookie dough, and the recipe was lost sometime during the Jimmy Carter administration.
Avatar 4:13pm Kitten Sparkles:

So the general knowledge of like 70% of this stuff didn't occur until after 2000.
Avatar 4:14pm DJ Major Sally:

Found the chat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Becky Ebenkamp:

I think the POV aspect is important tho. History is told from the winner’s perspective. The narrative has been pretty Fowley-centric up until the last decade...
Avatar 4:15pm Mr Fab:

This Speedies could just as easily fit in a New Wave/power pop show. Its a fine line....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Hi, Sally!
Avatar 4:15pm Franco Twinkie:

Like Leggo, the pieces lost under the couch or vacuumed up, are easily replaced with other pieces fresh out of the box.
Avatar 4:18pm DJ Major Sally:

Hi Becky! I’m all up in Dante lately! Still need to listen to the interview!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm chresti:

So, Franco, do you think Milk N Cookies are Legos?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Sally, we have a video chat with Ron Dante tomorrow!
Avatar 4:22pm DJ Major Sally:

What time? Im doing one last Sally On Sunday on FB tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Becky Ebenkamp:

3:30 p.m. pt
Avatar 4:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Milk N Cookies were SO Rodney if my added senile brain remembers correctly.
Avatar 4:23pm DJ Major Sally:

Thank you! I’ll tune in for sure!
  4:23pm Cheree July:

Rupert Holmes also wrote a weird hit song "Timothy" by a band from where I grew up in PA called the Buoys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Show is at 4 but the Zoom is 3:30. Call in info is on FB and IG.
Avatar 4:24pm Mr Fab:

Trouser Press used to write about Milk n Cookies.

"Timothy", heck yeah! The catchiest song about cannibalism ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Yes! Rupert was in the Cufflinks and the Buoys
Avatar 4:25pm DJ Major Sally:

Rupert also worked with The Invicticas too!
Avatar 4:26pm DJ Major Sally:

Street People “Jennifer Tompkins”, too!
  4:26pm Cheree July:

Uhhhh, yeaaah. Most people that I grew up with in PA think Timothy was a donkey, oof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Becky Ebenkamp:

And Street People, Gingersnap. It’s amazing how the Pina Colada Song came out of that.
Avatar 4:27pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 4:29pm DJ Major Sally:

❤️ The Tears!
Avatar 4:32pm Mr Fab:

Speaking of Trouser Press, founder/editor Ira Robbins was on Gina Bacon's show on the Drummer stream talking about his new novel set in the UK glam scene. Called "Marc Bolan Killed In Crash." Def looks to be a great read whilst listening to Wired Up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm chresti:

He's on today, Fab?
Avatar 4:35pm Mr Fab:

nah, sorry, he was already on:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm chresti:

Thanks Mr. Fab!
Avatar 4:36pm DJ Major Sally:

On a serious note, Portland is on edge, and thank you for calming my nerves. Racist are invading a park nearby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm chresti:

Sorry, Sally! Fuck racists!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Becky Ebenkamp:

The Big Bad Wolf!
  4:39pm Debbie Davenport:

It's intense in Portland for sure Sally. I'm in Eugene. We were surrounded by wildfires to the n s e and west and one was 10 miles 0% contained. I listened to the same hammered satin song for a over a whole day and these radio shows and it totally kept me calm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Uh oh, somebody else is bad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Hi Martinibomb and Debbie be safe out there! Went to Enchanted Forest last Sunday, it was nice to breathe fresh air again.

One for Suzy Hotrod- Roller Skatin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Becky Ebenkamp:

I love records where it sounds like a child is throwing a tantrum. Especially if it is in French.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm chresti:

Sleep well Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm chresti:

The Ye Ye brat sound.
Avatar 4:54pm Martinibomb:

I wonder what would happen if I walked into this proud boys thing with just a white tshirt that said "antifa" in black letters
Avatar 4:55pm Martinibomb:

@sally I'm a huuuuuuge long time fan of enchanted forest and didn't make it this year
