    Everytime I see that fucking commercial it pains me. Still can't believe he left us to be honest.

    Pete Quaife, TJenz, and probably no one else will remember a television program called Night Music, youtubed above. It was hosted by a fellow who I knew from Letterman's band called David Sanborn. It was on real late at night on Sunday in the 1980s, so as a teenager, I was rarely awake to see it. Once or twice at lunch, I heard something about who was on last night, and I went, like, oh man that was on tv and I missed it. Cuz you know, back then, we couldn't just look at live footage Sun Ra or Leonard Cohen or Joe Walsh whenever we felt like it. Weird that there was once a weekly live music show that featured lineups like

    Show 213
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Toots Thielemans
    Charlie Haden & his Liberation Orchestra
    Nick Cave & Mick Harvey
    Annabouboula
    Sister Carol

    Show 214
    Graham Parker
    NRBQ
    Abbey Lincoln
    Phil Woods
    Shabazz and His D.J.
    C.E. Just
    Steve Turre and His Sea Shells

    Show 215
    Bob Weir
    Rob Wasserman
    Warren Zevon
    Artis the Spoonman
    John Lurie and Nana Vasconcelos
    Bongwater
    Screamin' Jay Hawkins
    Modern Jazz Quartet


    week in and week out on Channel 7 for a year or two.

    OH and I should mention, the reason I got off on this tangent in the first place.
    The "disappear and fly fly away" line on the studio recording of Dirty Blvd is one of the great moments in rock, imhfo.

    How many channels did you have in the 80s.

    Let's see there was 2, 5. 7, 9, 11, 32, and 44. At some point, 44 went Spanish, and around that time we got 60 and 66 which showed like Gilligan's Island type shit, and I think another Spanish station.

    In like 1983 cable came to town, and we had 36, including the above, and ESPN, MTV, A&E, WTBS, etc.

    USA was a fucking hell of a network back then.

    I definitely saw that episode, RHCP definitely played "Subway to Venus," and it was probably my first exposure to the band. Just imagine the direction my life could've gone if I hadn't stayed up past my bedtime that night.

    Vaguely. That Sanborn chap was the same one who ruined Bowie's Young Americans album with his awful saxophone.

    I was recently digging through some old VHS tapes and found the episode where The Residents and Conway Twitty played together. So, that really happened. For the longest time I thought I had dreamt it.

    this really belongs in the silly alternative lyrics you sing over popular songs thread but I just realised I've been singing:

    Viscous
    I hit you with my powder
    I do it every hour
    Oh, Baby, I'm so viscous

    for about a decade now

    I assume that, should Agrimorfee find his way to the Garden, he would automatically be granted this venerable title.
