Radio 87, side A, track 3: "Two Princes" by Spin Doctors

Oh, Spin Doctors, I can’t help but like this song but good lord y’all are obnoxious.  I think you might have been the proto-hipsters.  Maybe it was just the lead singer, I don’t know, but as catchy as this song is, I keep picturing y’all playing hackey sack and being smarmy.   98 more words

Radio 87, side A, track 1: "Ordinary World" by Duran Duran

Oh, Duran Duran, is this really the first song by y’all that I recorded off of BOB?  Cray.  I don’t have any specific memories of this one, Duran Duran, other than that I thought it was a great song then and now, revisiting it after all these years, I think it’s a fantastic song. 15 more words

Radio 86, side B, track 12: "BOB's 9@9 promo: 1993"

Oh, BOB, yup, it’s clear that by this time in my radio taping off of y’all, I’d discovered the consistent joy of finding the gems brought to me by the 9@9.   67 more words

Radio 86, side B, track 11: "Hold On Tight" by Electric Light Orchestra

Oh, Electric Light Orchestra, damn!  1981 was a bad-ass year for music!  I don’t know when I heard this but I know it and it’s awesome and in my old age I’ve become a big fan of y’all.   19 more words
