Re: Rain

If we're talking "I Can't Stand The Rain", we should recognize Ann Peebles' original version of the song. It features the one of the most original hooks of that year. We can also mention "It Might As Well Rain Until September" by Carole King from 1962, her first hit. "Rainy Day People" by Gordon Lig...

Re: RIP 89X

I liked 89X back in the 90's - where else would I have heard Bran Van 3000's "Drinking In L.A."? I haven't listened in years, however. I'm another that will be glad that 580 survives as it's been. I've tried streaming it lately on my Echo, and it's not been available every day, however, including to...

Re: Rain

Randy Newman wrote a song in the '60's titled "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", that's been covered by many artists. I haven't heard many of the cover versions, but my current favorite is by Joe Cocker from 1975.

Re: Elvis

Elvis SUCKS!!! His removal from radio station playlists eveywhere is one of a very few bright spots in an otherwise dreary period for commercial radio! I don't think he sucked. I think he was a lot better than most of the songs he sang, and his endless touring from the late '60s onward was to line ...

Re: Unique Edit Of "Hello It's Me"

Utopia's "Set Me Free" was actually a hit, peaking at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1980. I may be one of few, but I liked The New Cars, not as a continuation of The Cars itself, but as a Todd Rundgren project. The album's not bad, and the new songs are in the power pop vein that Todd's always exc...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze flips to all Christmas on Halloween night

The ghost of the original WLLZ is awakened on Halloween to haunt the airwaves this holiday season. Scrooge gets a visit from the Ghost of Radio Past, when 98.7 wasn't a slave to the Endless Christmas Music Sales Train, and we got to celebrate our holiday season in a respectful and restrained manner....

Re: Unique Edit Of "Hello It's Me"

Rundgren's certainly deserving of Rock Hall consideration. That entity is, ironically enough, influenced by the publisher of that same magazine that promoted his classic album. Yet he's not in the Hall yet, and Whitney Houston is. Todd performed "Black Mariah" on one tour with Ringo Starr, and "I Sa...

Re: Unique Edit Of "Hello It's Me"

Yeah, that's there too. "I Saw The Light" was the lead single and other hit, months before "Hello It's Me" came out.

That album's about the same length as the White Album by the Beatles, and also still highly regarded today.

Is that the album version from "Something/Anything?" ? There's studio talk found there. It also features the backing vocals tailing off right at the end as well.

Re: Beatles '73

I'd also include "One Day (At A Time)" from Lennon, "Little Lamb Dragonfly" from Paul's 1973 Wings album "Red Rose Speedway", and George's "The Day The World Gets 'Round". "Jet" isn't really a quiet song, but it's well done. Perhaps "I Lie Around", the B-Side of the summer '73 Wings single "Live And...

WXLA is probably one of a very few stations that gives its' power in its' ID: "10,000 watt 1180, WXLA".

Re: Storm Armageddon?...Not according to the voice trackers.

I saw that same thing happen probably 15 years ago, which shows that it's never been much of a priority. There was a tornado warning out, according to the EAS cutting in eventually, the sirens were going off, and it obviously looked bad out, but a nearby station was VT, as it was a weekend, and you'...

Re: Truly Underrated Songs By Brian Hyland, Gary Lewis, With Leon Russell On Bells And Keyboards

I thought that album sounded familiar, and after going through the unfiled portion of the collection, I did see that same Gary Lewis "Legendary Masters" title that I picked up in the past couple of years. I'll leave it out to give another listen to soon. I'm also looking to get Gary's "I'm On The Ri...

Re: How Many Members in WZZM’s Weather Club?

I think that, with everything else that's going on in the world, that it's comforting to see George still at 13, and also Bill over at 8. I hope they stay around as long as they care to.

Re: Truly Underrated Songs By Brian Hyland, Gary Lewis, With Leon Russell On Bells And Keyboards

"The Joker Went Wild" is a great song. That and (likely all) the others you cited are in rotation on Real Oldies 1480, WGVU-AM in GR. It's a good station to stream for a wide variety of hits, big and small. They claim their library is over 9,000 songs. That, and it's public radio, so aside from prom...
