OK everyone, let's start learning Japanese;-) I did research for this song, but I couldn't find anything about Japanese version. Is this record released in Japan? If you know something about this song more, please tell me. Arigato. keiko -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2002 09:29:06 -0000 From: Billy (You'll have to guess the rest) Subject: Re: Best 60s-era revival > Edwyn Collins single - "A Girl Like You" also had a > great 60s vibe to it. Mainly I think because his studio > is comprised of vintage recording gear. It sounds so 60s because he sampled the first couple bars of Len Barry's 1965 hit "1-2-3" and looped it over and over as the main riff of that song. Great song anyway, I was very happy when it became a radio hit here in the USA. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2002 00:38:18 -0700 From: Kim Cooper Subject: Bubblegum Achievement Awards at the Magic Castle The Bubblegum Queen and the editors of "Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth" invite you to share a very special evening at Hollywood's Magic Castle on January 18, 2003. It's the First Annual Bubblegum Achievement Awards, honoring Artie Ripp of Buddah Records and the Turtles' Mark Volman, for his work on the astonishing Strawberry Shortcake records, which gave '80s kids a powerful injection of bubblemania. Also appearing are Bobby Conn, Monotrona and the scientific magic of David Lovering. Your ticket entitles you to a gourmet meal, a reserved seat for the main show in the Palace of Mystery, and entry to the private Inner Sanctum for the awards themselves. There will be dancing to DJ Gremmy's collection of vintage 45s, karaoke, contests with neat-o prizes, a full bar (from the set of "Hello Dolly!") and rare videos screening until midnight, after which we'll move back upstairs to enjoy more magic shows, history and tippling until the 2pm closing time. The Magic Castle is a private magician's club housed in a 1908 mansion in the hills above Hollywood. Usually the only way to get inside is to be a member, or to be personally invited by a member. And unlike some private clubs, this one is worth all the trouble it takes to get in. The atmosphere is pure Charles Addams, and you can spend hours examining the film and magic memorabilia. The cost for all of the night's entertainment, including your meal, tip and tax, is just $69, or $135 for two. Drinks are extra. We will be limited to just 129 guests, the maximum capacity of the Palace of Mystery. If you would like to attend this special event, please email The Editrix at scram@scrammagazine.com to reserve your spot, and send a check or money order payable to "Kim Cooper" to PO Box 461626, Hollywood, CA 90046-1626. Again, that's $69 for each individual ticket, or $135 for two. Tickets are non-refundable, but if "something suddenly comes up" we can probably help match you with someone on the waiting list. The Magic Bubble will burst on Saturday January 18, 2003. This event is 21 and over, and is subject to a mildly classy dress code. We hope to see you there!

Message: 9 Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2002 09:49:59 -0000 From: Billy (You'll have to guess the rest) Subject: Re: Best real audio sites? I also want to add my 'other' (I have 4!) Live 365 station called "60s Jangle Radio" at: http://www.live365.com/stations/88545 (outdated homepage)http://listen.to/jangleradio Its my own (strange) mix of British Invasion, Garage Bands, Pop-Pysch, and Bubblegum classics/rare goodies from the mid 60s to the very early 70s. And if you love Modern Power Pop check out "Jangle Radio"! http://www.live365.com/stations/185310 (56K stereo) http://www.live365.com/stations/10192 (24K Mono) PS: whoever posted the link to WPON radio, thanks. I have been enjoying it! I hope the station is doing well financally. It's very tough for a 1000 watt AM station to survive and find a niche in a major market.

At the invitation of Jamie some time ago, I took my two Gary Usher related live365.com stations and created the following stations: Gary Usher's Spectopop Radio at http://www.live365.com/stations/84738 and Together Radio with Spectropop Producers Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher at http://www.live365.com/stations/219638 At this time, those who want to listen to these stations will have to be preferred members of live365.com Enjoy, Ron Weekes http://www.garyusher.com p.s. if you ever lose the URLs to these two stations, you'll find links to them at my Gary Usher web site. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
