Saginaw 8:08:26 AM
Good morning, Sir
DJ Simon (host) 8:08:58 AM
Good day, Saginaw!
KOTJames 8:11:43 AM
Hello. Pop titan deaths.
DJ Simon (host) 8:12:28 AM
Hellooo James!
DJ Simon (host) 8:12:51 AM
Did you know Mac Davis wrote songs for Elvis?
KOTJames 8:13:34 AM
Moved KOTJ archive almost complete. www.mixcloud.com/KOTJames nearly up-to-date
DJ Simon (host) 8:14:20 AM
I saw you were doing some early morning uploading.
Fred 8:14:30 AM
Hey Simon
KOTJames 8:15:06 AM
Better wipe down the platen, as per last song
DJ Simon (host) 8:15:42 AM
Hey Fred – Happy Monday
KOTJames 8:19:47 AM
Mouse count 48. Three traps gone missing. None caught in six days.
DJ Simon (host) 8:19:34 AM
Almost enough for a stew.
KOTJames 8:30:13 AM
Sad Killdozer never did a Helen Reddy cover
KOTJames 8:30:47 AM
DJ Simon (host) 8:30:49 AM
Oh man, that would be fine. Maybe I am Woman.
DJ Simon (host) 8:31:39 AM
Some Killdozer coming up later, BTW.
CatLABS JP 8:32:36 AM
i got no scaldinghot coffee, got no burnt toast, but i got a racket in my ear. What a racket this morning.
DJ Simon (host) 8:33:01 AM
Hey, CatLABS!
DJ Simon (host) 8:34:13 AM
Rumor has it if you hold a slice of bread up to your speakers while the Racket is on, you can make toast.
DJ Simon (host) 8:35:25 AM
Could just be one of those urban myths.
Fred 8:36:49 AM
Boy, forgot about freakie Angie Baby, had to checkout from the racket and go back to being 9 years old, didn’t miss that song
DJ Simon (host) 8:39:30 AM
I remember my sister playing that song for me and it freaked me out. I thought she might have the same power.
KOTJames 8:41:52 AM
Not such a stretch that The Strand inspired The Time Warp
DJ Simon (host) 8:43:41 AM
"Do the Strandsky"
KOTJames 8:44:18 AM
CatLABS JP 8:45:18 AM
sure sounds like the time warp
CatLABS JP 8:46:00 AM
then again - the casino theme from Rain man sounds awful like sisters of mercy temple of love... hans zimmer, did he ever actually write anything original?
CatLABS JP 8:46:34 AM
*this corrosion not temple of love
KOTJames 8:47:44 AM
The PL player is playing on it's own again....but it's sparky
CatLABS JP 8:48:54 AM
yes this happened to me on friday over and over - had to turn it off all the time.
DJ Simon (host) 8:50:17 AM
That thing has a mind of its own. I was trying to figure out what triggers it to play so I could open a ticket. Thought it might be a particular keystroke, but there's no pattern.
KOTJames 8:55:19 AM
I'm making breakfast and it happens so no stroking.
KOTJames 8:55:29 AM
Did it again
KOTJames 8:56:02 AM
Oh yea...shut off player volume
DJ Simon (host) 8:57:30 AM
Ah, the soothing vocal sounds of Killdozer.
KOTJames 9:06:41 AM
A fine Fluid Troggs cover effort
DJ Simon (host) 9:07:09 AM
A fine slice of power pop.
KOTJames 9:09:45 AM
Couldn't play....uploading to mixcloud. Folks probably annoyed by all the email notices
DJ Simon (host) 9:10:44 AM
They seem to stop sending the notifications after around three uploads.
KOTJames 9:12:10 AM
oh good....i've uploaded over 50 in the last two days.
KOTJames 9:12:32 AM
599 shows up
DJ Simon (host) 9:12:53 AM
Good golly
KOTJames 9:13:09 AM
Hate when the glue clots...
DJ Simon (host) 9:15:08 AM
Elmers glue skin peel
bruckner4 9:19:18 AM
hello there, racket.
DJ Simon (host) 9:19:29 AM
G'mornin' Bruckner!
JeffB 9:23:18 AM
sorry i'm late..
DJ Simon (host) 9:23:28 AM
Issuing a tardy slip.
DJ Simon (host) 9:24:57 AM
Just thought Tardy Slip would be a good fake band name, but just looked it up in Bandcamp and at least one band exists with that name.
KOTJames 9:27:45 AM
What about Elmer's Skin Peel
KOTJames 9:28:18 AM
Rise Cooter
Barry Hart 9:35:06 AM
Good morning,DJ Simon & Racketeers,enjoying the show (of course)-l didn’t realize “Angie Baby “ had such a disturbing,weird story in it.Then again,l never really listened to the lyrics-have a satisfying week,all.
DJ Simon (host) 9:36:54 AM
Happy Monday, Barry! Yeah, Angie disappears that kid. Freaky story for a big top 40 hit.
JeffB 9:39:01 AM
That Horror Vacui track sounded like it was from 1987.. awesome resurrection of that era..
DJ Simon (host) 9:40:27 AM
Yes, very authentic sounding 80s post-punk there.
JeffB 9:43:35 AM
Cherry Red was the Groundhogs? Spinitron misfire? Another band I didn't learn about until 50 years later...
DJ Simon (host) 9:46:02 AM
Yeah, that was a Groundhogs cover.
JeffB 9:50:22 AM
very faithful to the original.
David Dodson 9:54:47 AM
