The show: Slo-mo disco rules the day

At the risk of becoming a Hipster Runoff meme… Ain’t nothing like doing a show when my Macbook keeps playing the dreaded spinning beach ball of death – I  suppose it’s like having a built in cosmic disco effects unit, just less predictable. A good reminder that live radio is great fun.

In today’s WTF?!?!? segment – remember this lovely number from 1986? Doesn’t it bring back memories of shitty school discos or shitty redneck nightclubs? Gotta love the one hit wonders. Boy’s Don’t Cry possibly hit the big time because of the major labels being investigated for payola back in the 1980s. Have a read of Fredric Dannen’s “Hit Men: Powerbrokers and Fast Money Inside the Music Business” for details.

And here’s the playlist in full…
