Esoterica (host) 1:02:21 PM
Esoterica (host) 1:03:30 PM
from popmatters: Fire Engines, out of Glasgow, Scotland, only existed for a couple of years between 1980 and 1981 and only cut one full-length record, 1981's Lubricate Your Living Room. Part of the Scottish post-punk scene, they were the feral cousin of bands like Orange Juice and Joseph K.

r.i.p. chadwick boseman. does a good job in "get on up" biopic, as well as "42" for that matter
David Shortell 2:12:20 PM
That description of the Ridiculous Trio track reminds me of the climactic scene from “The Naked Gun” where a marching band plays “Louie Louie”.
Esoterica (host) 2:12:56 PM

David Shortell 2:24:56 PM
“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” was the first August Wilson play I ever read. I just watched the newly released film of it on Netflix. Not until an hour into the movie did I realize it was Chadwick Boseman playing Levee (his final role I suppose). This is the same man who played T’Challa? That’s impressive dramatic range.
Brian D 2:25:25 PM
That was cool. Another raunchy one, Ma
Esoterica (host) 2:25:31 PM
agree, david. i need to see Ma Rainey
Esoterica (host) 2:25:38 PM
oh yes
Brian D 2:25:44 PM

Esoterica (host) 2:46:21 PM

David Shortell 2:46:29 PM
I’ve seen Joe Jack Talcum play a couple of low-profile shows deep here in NJ, including one in an actual log cabin in Manchester Township! I spoke with him about the inspiration for his band’s name. He dispelled me of my long-held misapprehension that it came from Monty Python’s milkman skit.
richard mccullic 2:46:48 PM
Nice Show Can You play some Steve Hillage next Week
Stevie P 2:47:12 PM
