What Music??

Here's a playlist. Mostly I listen to the streaming archives of Idiot's Delight hosted by someone who has been doing freeform radio since I was in high school. I'm still listening Vin. This was a show from Nov.12, 2005. It's on the air live every Saturday night from 8 to 11 at www.wfuv.org but more often than not I'm nipping away at the archives. Vin plays the old, the new, the mad and the magical. Sweet surprises at every turn and listening to a New York City radio station keeps the occasional homesickness at bay.

Lordy, Vin Scelza. That brings me back.
Remember WNEW-FM on Saturday mornings?
The letters from Me and Razoo Kelly, who spent several years drifting though NJ clubs trying to see Bruce.
Man, I miss 'NEW.

Vin's current show is pretty much the same way he did things back then; freewheelin'.

I miss New York!

I remember hearing I'm not in Love (10cc) for the very first time and my jaw dropped as I heard the background harmony and wondered how many overdubs that would have taken...it was one of those musical paradigm shifting moments when I realised that songs could be powerful mood altering experiences...
One night in Pareese will wipe the smile off your pretty face!
