Sounds of the Hall in roughly 33 1/3 minutes!

In this week’s edition of Saturday Night Shut-In Mr. Moderator works out his feelings over an aprupt end to his baseball fantasy life, as his beloved Philadelphia Phillies are knocked out of the first round of the playoffs. As part of the healing process, he feels the pain of New York Yankees fans, Boston Red Sox fans, and even San Francisco Giants fans. Can there be more to ROCKTOBER than the march to the World Series? Will Phillies fans ever get their taste of the “Dynasty Sampler?” We urge all baseball fans looking ahead to next year to join us in this special early edition of our weekly podcast.

    I don’t think I’d ever heard of Daryl-Ann, but I really liked that track you played. Always great to hear early reggae on your airwaves, Ornette too. And btw I like the way you picked a Ferry track to play that prominently featured RTH guitar hero Waddy Wachtel.

  2. Daryl-Ann had a couple of minor Euro MTV hits the year we lived in Hungary. I picked up the EP from which the videos were launched and then, when I got back to the States, searched for more unsuccessfully. I wasn’t finding any. I wrote the band a fanboy letter and they sent me the Weeps album. I still really like their two albums. To me they’re a better version of another Dutch band I got turned onto overseas, Bettie Seveert (sp?).

    For the longest time The Harder They Come soundtrack was the only reggae record I liked. Then a friend bought me Burnin’, which I know I’ve talked about before. I still can’t pin down the years of early reggae that I like, but as with Motown records of my youth, it’s hard for me to go wrong within a certain time frame. It seems by the later ’70s, stuff like Black Uhuru, I get bored. A lot of that stuff sounds like the reggae equivalent of Bad Company and other meat & potatoes ’70s boogie bands.

    As always, thanks for listening. Get better, Ryan Howard!

  3. Great show — as a Twins fan, losing in the first round of the playoffs has been a regular October occurrence until this year — when the bottom completely fell out.

    My national league team — the Nats — will have high hopes to dethrone the Phils in 2010 — we will see, as will the hordes of Philly fans who come down here for every game.

  4. I’m rooting for the Twins to get back on top one of these days. The outdoor park and the cool retro uniforms need to be rewarded! Your Nats, on the other hand, I can’t get behind. I still think you’re aces nevertheless, funoka!
