Wow! A welcome trip back in time with Graham Parker and Elvis Costello! Thanks, Renny ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

They were the "angry young men" I mentioned earlier. Of course they are no longer angry young men. Both are now old men and Elvis isn't all that angry anymore. (I'll never forgive him for collaborating with Burt Bacharach).

Feeling glum? Try Glam.

1:36 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Any body listening?

1:39 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Any friends, country-fried and Rioteers out there?

1:44 PM, January 11th, 2023
Lovely mix into the Graham Parker song there Renny.

1:51 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)

Digging the sounds coming into the basement via Renny's Riot!! Great show as always Renny!!!

1:53 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
It's amazing how much music in the Seventies was inspired by reggae.

1:54 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Thanks Dave. Your show better not be pre-empted by Canada's obsession tomorrow.

I haven't been told of any pre-emption so it better run!! I went looking to see if I have a non-extended version of Punky Reggae Party and mine are all extended versions too.....

2:22 PM, January 11th, 2023
Thanks for playing the original of 'The Tide is High". Always thought that was a Blondie penned song, nice to finally hear the original.

2:24 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Yes. I was floored when I heard the original because as hard as I've tried, I just don't like Blondie.

2:26 PM, January 11th, 2023
This set is hopping! Renny knows how to "ribbit" up! ...That's all I got, I'll show myself out.

2:52 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
You're forgiven, IanJ. With jokes like that, you are obviously a dad.

2:56 PM, January 11th, 2023
Warren Smith, wow I'm amazed, what a voice. Renny, do have you any info on this musician?

3:05 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
He was the first of the Sun rockabillies to record Ubangi Stomp, in 1956, two years later the Killer recorded it.

3:06 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
I just read the Wikipedia article. It's a good summary.

3:08 PM, January 11th, 2023
Great stuff thanks.

3:10 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
And I correct myself HERE/HEAR. Warren Smith was the first to sing it, but he did not write it. A guy called Charles Underwood did.

3:12 PM, January 11th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Thanks for listening. I mean that!

3:29 PM, January 11th, 2023
Great, diverse sets! Thanks!
