Faye + Nate = Fate!

How could one say Naye to this duo?
Avatar 8:07pm Faye:

Why hello Gaylord!! What punny company we have this evening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Nardo:

Can't believe I just missed Cleveland's home town hero and on WFMU even.
  8:08pm Nate K:

Hey, Gaylord!
  8:09pm b k:

The first time I have ever heard Michael Stanley Band on WFMU! Such an amazing band and Michael has continued to make great records in the 35 years since the end of the band.
Avatar 8:09pm Faye:

Nardo you have to get here ON TIME!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Aitch:

Bummer Nate's show on same time as Frow Show, need more ears
Avatar 8:12pm Faye:

hahaha I know what you mean Aitch
Avatar 8:17pm el oso:

Very informative. I eagerly await the city pop spiel.
Avatar 8:17pm Faye:

It's comin oso! Thanks for tuning in
  8:18pm pp:

"No it's not a joke, it's cards on the table time" from a NotCityRock song
Avatar 8:18pm glennfromglendale:

Hey y’all, just tuned in and realized The Hold Steady might be city rock!
  8:19pm Listener Terry:

Where would you put The Reducers?
Avatar 8:19pm Faye:

hmmm maybe Nate has some perspective on those, Glenn & Terry
  8:20pm b k:

Wow, Iron City Houserockers and Michael Stanley in the same show!
(Both have a Springsteen connection, Clarence Clemmons played on the Michael Stanley hit "Lover" and Springsteen often records and performs with Joe Grushecky, leader of the Houserockers)
  8:20pm pp:

the arguably greatest Michael Stanley song is Rosewood Bitters
Avatar 8:21pm Faye:

oo thanks for the trivia b k!
Avatar 8:22pm Faye:

this song reminds me of a song by the mantles...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm mariano:

Hello Faye and everyone!
  8:24pm Gerard:

I know where I'd put the Reducers!
Avatar 8:24pm Faye:

let's hear it Gerard
  8:24pm Nate K:

I’ll have to investigate the Reducers further, not super familiar. “Cruise to Nowhere” is a title with city vibes, though, I’ll say that much. Hold Steady are probably more like city revival.
  8:27pm Gerard:

sorry, I was going to send you a link to the New London, CT city landfill but there's actually a photo of the Reducers on that home page (NO JOKE) so they've beaten me to the punch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Kat in Chicago:

Is city rock performed exclusively by dudes?
Avatar 8:31pm Faye:

Yeah who's the City Rock Riot Grrrl?
  8:31pm b k:

The Iron City Houserockers album with "Junior's Bar" was produced by Mick Ronson and Steve Van Zant. On the album "Junior's Bar" is preceded by the great "Old Man Bar". Album was recently rereleased in a deluxe 40th anniversary edition.
Avatar 8:31pm Faye:

@Gerard.... LOL
Avatar 8:32pm Dave in SoDak:

I sent a few CDs in the past, but I'm sure they were 86'd. There are great - really great bar bands with great original songs and original styles, and they are completely ignored outside of their *cities*!!! Just sayin'. You can think you have heard it all but the truth is, there are at least a thousand other great bands out there that will never hit the who's who's. especially in the upper midwest. regardless, love the fact that that genre is being recognized in some small way. thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Kat @Faye: I'd like to think songs by someone like perhaps Patty Smyth or Pat Benatar might qualify. But Nate would know better, as I just heard of this subsubgenre a half hour ago.
  8:33pm Gerard:

Kat, I think you could make a case for Genya Raven's 'Urban Desire' or '...And I Mean It' being City Rock. I mean, that would be a better courtroom drama than the Chicago 7 movie
  8:33pm Listener Terry:

"Life in the Neighborhood","Scared of Cops","No Ambition" and "Black Plastic Shoes" are worth listening to to get an idea what they're about.
Avatar 8:35pm Faye:

shout out to South Dakota! thanks for your comment Dave.
  8:35pm Heather F:

I have already learned so much. Great juxtaposition Faye + Nate!
Avatar 8:35pm Faye:

@Gaylord- out of anyone who's just learned about a genre...you'd be the one to make an accurate educated guess! Gerard sounds like he knows a think or two as well... thanks Terry too!
Avatar 8:35pm Faye:

hahaha hi heatherrrrrr
  8:36pm Nate K:

Kat, it’s a pretty male-dominated genre. I’d argue Pat Benatar flies the flag. And Joan Jett covered “Light of Day,” by Springsteen and performed often by Grushecky, so she definitely performed city rock, at least.
Avatar 8:36pm Faye:

ty for listening as always !!
Avatar 8:36pm Dave in SoDak:

ty faye. :)
  8:37pm Nate K:

@Gaylord, Pat Benatar for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Gaylord Fields:

@Faye @Nate: I just thought of a female-fronted city rock song: "Stillsane" by Carolyne Mas: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

So nice! I hope I don't faynte from all the excitement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm katsavage:

I only learned about City Pop this year after reading New Waves by Kevin Nguyen. Thought it was made up until I decided to furtively look it up and had a good few hours delving. Glad to get immersed once more. Also, now I know City Rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Kat in Chicago:

I have to hop off chat in a few, but great show theme!
Avatar 8:42pm el oso:

The city contains multitudes.

New York Groove by Hello (later Ace Frehley) may be a blueprint.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm efd:

The only bad thing about this show is it’s only an hour! Fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm listener 126464:

Had a feeling it was gonna start raining. Thanks Faye & Nate, crew.
Avatar 8:59pm Faye:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm mariano:

In heaven, all FMU shows will be 3 hours and they'll all still fit in a day.
  8:59pm Nate K:

@scott, Eddie was discussed but hit the cutting room floor, sadly.
