I want to give my friends Cheryl and Brian some plug. They work hard to make
this show work. Its highly unusual and accessible on the web...Enjoy!

Beyond kitsch, Space Bop is one hour of full galactical wonder, and can be 
heard every Sunday from 4 to 5 pm Eastern time (that's 9 to 10 pm in the UK, 
and 10 to 11 pm in most of the rest of Europe...) on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal, 
Canada, and on RealAudio (real time only, for now) at: 
As usual, all comments, questions, and feedback welcome.  Coming soon...the
Space Bop web site!!  We'll keep you posted.

I imagine one of the main causes of sales being down is that radio/video playlists are so tight, there is less music being HEARD. Most people are reluctant to buy a CD they have never heard. There is some great music being made out there. It's just that nobody gets to hear it without really searching it out. In keeping with that, I'd like to recommend my favorite CD from 2002: "Miss Fortune" by Allison Moorer. You'll find it in the country section, but there is material on here that recalls Bacharach, Dusty In Memphis, Bobbie Gentry... and she is one of the best singers around today. Give it a try! -Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Does anyone know this song and on > what label it was released? I believe that "I might like it" was the flipside of "Standing at the altar" from 1958.

Thanks to the Spectropop team for putting on another wonderful party and this time I arrived early, left late and didn't miss a thing! Where to start? Not being one to make a long story short...greeted at the door by Eric with the consummate ease normally associated with only the finest game show hosts, some good friends, familiar faces, a lovely looking spread on the downstairs bar and Lonnie Donegan playing on the large video screen. Great start and the evening just got better. Upstairs, topically the Strangeloves blaring out of the speakers, more friends to be reacquainted with, new ones to be made and some email pals to put faces with the messages. One of the first of the latter was Hans Ket who I've been 'chatting' to for sometime - a knowledgeable and very helpful contributor to he Jack Nitzsche site, it was a pleasure to meet him. Another, much prettier, face was the Cha Cha Charming Sheila B, as much fun and enthusiasm as her wonderful magazine would suggest, I'll be eagerly looking forward to her mag going 'live' on the net. It was this enthusiasm that really made the evening special and it could have not have been displayed any better than the marvelous show that was put on to cheerful, loud applause, by the glamorous, velvet voiced Elisabeth and those foxy, hunk magnets the Actionettes. I'd missed their show at the Summer Party and was determined to be in position when the show started. Ian introduced it with professionalism - even down to delaying his entrance so as to heighten expectance - gained through many years of bingo calling. The girls performed the first of their routines and it was easy to see why they have built such a good reputation, a joyous show seemingly danced with as much pleasure by the girls as they gave to us watching. We were then treated to a bevy of fine tunes performed by Elisabeth - appropriately including two seasonal numbers originally sung by Felice Taylor and Lisa Mychols - sung with an ease and clarity that had me hot footing it to Malcolm B's stall to snap up one of her CD's. (Could the Admin team post an address where those unlucky enough not to attend could buy a copy?) Among the songs was a specially rewritten Happy Birthday rendition of Da Doo Ron Ron. This was for a very special chap who, to a very large degree, was responsible for us being there. I for one have gone on record as saying that he is the main inspiration for a hobby turning into an obsession. It was so good to see that even in his dotage he was still able to wag (admittedly out of time) a finger to the beat of the bass. The joy in his watery eyes as his presents were accepted was a pleasure to behold and as he was carefullyled to back to his seat there were not many other dry eyes in the house. The rest of the night was spent chatting to friends old and new. Sadly still not enough time to speak to everyone and there were some faces that I was not able to put names to. A nearly packed house but some friends were missed, unable to make the night: Keiko, Kingsley, Ian S. and others. I did raise a glass to them and let's hope we can all be at the next one.

At that time she was billed under the singular Vicky. Fantastic - thank you Ian! My only version of this was on a fading and much-loved cassette. It's especially a treat when copies of the LP "Sunshine Boy" appears on (the title escapes me) regularly go for $100 or more on eBay. Those pesky Vicky Leandros fans keep preventing me from getting my own copy! :-) I'm still recovering from the fabulous party last night (as well as the train journey back to Manchester) so more on that later.

You'll surely hear from more knowledgable folks than me, but the only one I know of that came close was "We'll Start The Party Again," from the original vinyl lp "Where The Girls Are" Mick Patrick compilation. It's playing to musica right now, if I can get it to fit in the folder. > doesn't help me get unforgettable musical hooks out of my head when I'm > trying to get to sleep! I don't remember any more who told me this--it might've been someone on this group even--but the method I use is to hum the chorus to The Theme From The Greatest American Hero a few times. It cleans out your hook- laden brain, but for some odd reason it won't itself stay stuck, but rather evaporates cleanly away.

A couple other examples might include Len Barry's "Somewhere" from West Side Story, the 4 Seasons' "I've Got You Under My Skin" (one of my two favorite 4 Seasons tunes, along with Girl Come Running), and even the Beatles' "Til There Was You." Of course, we also mustn't forget the Stu Phillips-produced "Blue Moon" by the Marcels. Jack -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

What a change of pace from the normal (is there such a thing?) 60's garage band! Clark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
