Hey Ray..!..what you got?!?...:)
  9:37pm paparay:

Hello from radio land!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm TomDash:

Hey paparay - sound going! Love this Byrne and Eno record
  9:40pm CC:

Somebody has to make a good song about the virus!?!...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm radioronan:

Hello DJ Ray Boogie..sounds good in the kitchen tonight!
  9:44pm paparay:

@radioronan: Thanks for tuning in. A lot of fun stuff ahead!
  9:45pm paparay:

@CC: Happy Friday! I'm sure there's a Corona song title somewhere!
  9:47pm Woo:

Hi to paparay. Sorry I missed Mesopotamia. Just the other day I told someone I'd meet them by the third pyramid.
  9:48pm Keith:

B-52's and Byrne/Eno; hitting my aged sweet spot. Good stuff
  9:49pm paparay:

@Woo: Thanks for riding New York Underground. You can always revisit!
  9:49pm Dean:

Checking in randomly here. I *love* the Residents' Hank, and the only David Byrne or Eno stuff I like is from Bush. (Otherwise, they're overrated.)

We don't need a song about the pandemic. We need Milton or Spenser to tackle this one.
  9:50pm paparay:

@Keith: Thanks! More sweet stuff for the sweet spots!
  9:52pm Cousin Ben:

I heard the residents song at Ground Zero in Cambridge, MA
  9:53pm Woo:

The B-52's are one of the greatest. They even inspired Lennon to get back to work when he heard Rock Lobster and its Yoko influence.
  9:54pm sugarwolf:

I first heard that Residents song on the 2 Many DJs compilation.
  9:55pm paparay:

@Woo: I was in a documentary w/ Fred Schneider called Dare To Be Different. Met him a few times. One of a kind.
  9:56pm paparay:

@sugarwolf: First time I heard I was like what????
  9:57pm Dean:

I bought that Residents album when it arrived on the market. Still got it. Great album.
  9:57pm MiParis:

Sheila... I'm 15 again
  9:58pm paparay:

@MiParis: I know who this is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm TomDash:

I think I do too! haha
  10:01pm paparay:

@Dean: Perhaps you know the identity of The Residents???
  10:02pm Marie:

Hey, I love this Spacer tune. I def. heard that Residents song on the dance floor. Also, as I was listening tonight, I kept thinking you were going to segue into Michael Jackson's Billie Jean...
  10:02pm Dean:

I once asked them at a show if they were music faculty at Cal. Pretty sure I was way off the mark.
  10:04pm paparay:

@Dean: It's rumored that they're famous. I wonder if they're DEVO incognito? Some fans know but won't say!
  10:05pm Dean:

More likely Klaatu or Guru Guru.
  10:07pm paparay:

@Dean: Perhaps....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Scott Williams:

Billie Jean is indeed sampled heavily on Kaw-Liga! the Residents' identities have been public knowledge for awhile - they're not famous. They are the guys pretending to be their Cryptic Corp spokesmen. Only one of them is still active. R.I.P. Hardy Fox

"they're not famous."

Good to know there's a bright line rule about that.

@Scott---wow, I didn't know that the Resident's sampled Michael J., and I wasn't sure which song preceded which. Thank-ee:>)
  10:18pm paparay:

Shout out the folks just hopping on the New York Underground!
Avatar 10:18pm Andrew S:

enjoying the show a lot, what would we do without great music and friendly voices over the radio these days?
  10:19pm rich TW:

kick in the eye - going out to Mike Pence?
  10:19pm paparay:

@rich TW: I wish I played I Am The Fly by Wire!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Jason from Houston:

Hahaha... The first dang song I thought of after watching that mess happen.

  10:22pm Dean:

Here's what I did when the radio music wasn't "great" and the voices weren't friendly: I tuned into AM and listened to the evangelical programs. They didn't care about selling records. Mid-'80s, likely?
  10:22pm paparay:

@Jason from Houston: Will find some more Cristina in upcoming shows.
  10:22pm rich TW:

love Wire and that song in particular. I thought of XTCs Fly on the Wall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Jason from Houston:

Proper. You are the best.
  10:24pm paparay:

@rich TW: I dug up A Fly Guy, the female version of A Fly Girl by The Boogie Boys, 80's hip hop jam.

RIP Cristina, early covid casualty in April - very sad
  10:30pm Rick from Jersey:

All this takes me back to Mudd Club, Pyramid, 1018, Stickball and vinyl ruled!!!!
  10:30pm Marie:

Really fun show, thanks, Ray!
  10:31pm paparay:

@Rick from Jersey: This is what it's all about. Glad to have you aboard.
  10:31pm paparay:

@Marie: Thank you and welcome!

This show is like biting into a madeleine in a Proust novel. So many memories!
  10:32pm paparay:

@loveless: Love it!!!
  10:44pm Nate K:

Great show, Ray. Also, a nice balm for watching Dwight Howard win an NBA title. Hope the Lakers pull through, though, all for Marty McSorley’s sake.
Avatar 10:45pm northguineahills:

Spanish Town? I spent a great week on the other side of the coast at my friend's aunt's place in Port Antonio.
  10:46pm paparay:

@Nate K: Thanks for tuning in to New York Underground! And hope they pull through too.
  10:48pm paparay:

@northguineahills: Spanish Town is in St. Catherine, 13 miles out of Kingston. Grace went to the same high school as my older sister. Grace already running around Paris by that time.
