The Retro Mix video of the week: I Do' Wanna Know by REO Speedwagon (even after 20 years, this video still cracks me up). I think it's funny how the lady who introduces the video claims that it's one of her favorites, but then mispronounces the title.

Another dynamite show. Lot of classics here (Mama Feelgood, Go Your Own Way, Turn the Beat Around, Born to Wander, etc.). I also enjoyed the double retro segment featuring those Isley Guys.

I really need to make it a point to listen! :) I love how you threw in some Ramones!

Oh, Malcolm thanks for the video - it was a crack-up. I think the funniest part was the woman's hair! What decade was she from anyway??? LOL.

P.S. I'm being interviewed by Growing Bolder Radio this Monday Morning at 9:45 a.m. - check my pop culture blog for more info and listen if you can!

Your pop culture bud, PopArtDiva

An impressive list

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Yay Nick Lowe! A lady I met at the concert last month sent me an mp3 version of the show. It was awesome :)

Holly Smith said...

Love Back in Black, The Pleasure Principle, and Rock Steady.

Is Janet really 42? She looks a lot younger.

Malcolm said...

Pjazzy: Thanks! I love doing the Double Retro segment because it gives me an excuse to play music from the 50s or 60s.

Jessica: I hope you can listen someday. Since I hadn't played a Ramones tune on the show in awhile, I figured that it was due time.

Pop Art Diva: Until I found the video for "I Do' Wanna Know" on You Tube last year, I hadn't seen it in over 20 years! Since this video came out in 1984, that would also be the time period of the intro feat. the young lady who won the Friday Night Videos contest. I noticed that her "almost mullet" had some bounce to it.

Middle Ditch: Thanks

Mistress of the D: Like I said when I backsold "Cruel To Be Kind", it's power pop at its best. I never get tired of hearing that tune. I don't know if we talked about it already, but the reissue of "Jesus of Cool" has the orig. version of "Cruel To Be Kind".

Holly: Oh yeah, Janet looks damn good for 42. As I said during last Friday's show, it's hard to believe that it's been over 30 years since she first appeared on "Good Times".
