  • Lastangelman

    Now that tune took me back to the discos in Bahrain back in 70s. Another one the deejays played incessantly was Santa Esmeralda’s version of “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” – the loooooooooooonnnnnnngggggg version, of course.

      I cant play the super long version, but I will rock the short one fo sho

      • Lastangelman

        Aw heck, I wouldn’t expect anyone to play the long version on radio, this ain’t the seventies anymore. I remember the deejays doing live extended versions of dance tracks, lasting thirty to forty minutes, to keep people on the dance floor, sometimes dropping odd stuff in the middle without missing a beat, sort of like versions of “scratching” and “sampling”, using three turntables at once.

    today the moon, tomorrow the sun

  • Roy Verges

    Please playing some Bowie singing Kurt Weil.

  • Paul, you might find Movits! interesting. They’re a Swedish Electro Swing band that I found about six months ago. Very upbeat and fun to listen to, even if you don’t speak Swedish. You can find a number of videos on YouTube, and they’ve got two or three albums on Amazon.

  • Hi Paul,
    So strange and wonderful to hear the opening track from Hall & Oates’ Abandoned Luncheonette. Don’t think I’ve heard it in 35 years. Next week, can you play an old Bowie chestnut, “Be My Wife,” from Low? Thanks for all you do!
