Well, NOW she's saying she's gonna leave this man - which seems in complete conflict with the title of this song. Maybe they DO need to get outta here @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing #youwontmissyourwatertilyourwellrunday

This is some of that "everything and the kitchen sink" technique Jam and Lewis managed to cut back on in later years - oh, God, though....the "ladies" - yeah, call 'em out, Thelma @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 13:04 
Thelma Houston didn't release an album for six years after this one. Jam and Lewis, meanwhile, hooked up with Janet Jackson and some may remember the results @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

We're already over but I wanted to include a Flyte Time production - I'm fascinated by how their process evolved during the S.O.S. Band/Cherelle years. Mason introduced me to Change. This one was kinda "lost" and maybe for good reason @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

Hmm, you think Lorenzo would say something about his vocal turn or plug the show if I paid him $25? @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 13:00 
Mostly I played that one for my two most regular listeners, @skiforthree and @funkomatic, who are also fabulous supporters of KFAI - as you should be! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:59 
I found this 12" for 25¢ at Fly Vintage & Vinyl (shoutout to @Humours and @Copyapolis) where I believe it came from a DJ pool collection - best quarter I've ever spent on an acquisition? Perhaps! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:57 
Somehow due to label and/or licensing issues, the "Body Talk" soundtrack does NOT contain this OR the other Lorenzo Lamas....performance. Scotti Bros. put out this single to remedy that. It did not chart. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

I really tease out the next selection, but the wait is well worth it... @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

Originally I was thinking I'd host a KFAI Vinyl Voices night where I'd sell any record I'd played for two bucks and use all the proceeds to buy MORE records. Somehow my house is full despite that plan coming to fruition @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:50 
I buy records at a lot of places but the inspiration for the show came while I was at The Landfill in St. Paul, where all the Cheapo overstock goes to die and they have a zillion 12" singles (and also several zillion LPs) AND everything's 6/$5. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:48 
Ah, Adiche - as I often say (because it's all I got) look him up and all you get is this 12" single. I bought it because it was on Newcleus' label and also shared some publishing credits so I figured you could probably breakdance to it. I was right! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

The bass has been slapped by Bo Freeman. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:46 
The LP reveals some interesting credits for this song:
Lead Guitar – Phil Ketnar
Rhythm Guitar – Levi Seacer Jr.
Timbales – Harold "Butch" Haynes
Bill Summers might be best known for "Jam the Box" - this was a couple years after that.
@DollarBinShow #keepitgoi
6.8.19 12:42 
Speaking of vocoder and slap bass...this was another 12" single I knew nothing about but liked the title and track length and just went for it. Now I have Bill Summers out the yin yang on this hard drive @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

This was one of two tracks that WASN'T a greatest hit, but they were both released as singles and became self-fulfilling prophecies - Fogelberg could do no wrong! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing (This is also the shortest track on this episode, I think)
6.8.19 12:38 
I'll always be grateful to @masonbutler for letting me watch him do @cruisectrlkfai and figure out what I wanted to do, and I'll always have a pile of records that are a little more smooth. Fogelberg's greatest hits (50¢) is definitely one I return to @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

I don't have as many Fatback 12" singles as I think I do, but I probably own more Fatback albums than I think I do. We're halfway through the hour and the quality insights keep coming, folks! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

RIP Pete Burns - he left us in 2016. Yesterday would have been his 60th birthday. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

Thanks to long-time listener and even longer-timer friend Phil for his donation to KFAI! Let this soaring Stock/Aitken/Waterman production represent how my heart feels @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

Whether it's web exclusives like my show @DollarBinShow or live events they help make happen, @kfaiFMradio is so much more than just a radio station - help them do all the things they do with your pledge of support! #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:23 
I have multiple copies of this one - it's usually in the crate when I'm playing live with KFAI Vinyl Voices or DJ'ing with other folks. It was the fourth and final single off Dead or Alive's monster LP "Youthquake." @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

This song features a dizzying array of "gear changes" for the chorus - but I think that's one of the really great things about it. Another wonderful @fknyc extension - I learned to look for François' name after his @kraftwerk remixes in the late 1980s @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:17 
"Kiss Me (Vocal)" was from show #23, preceded by a Caroline Munro/Gary Numan track and followed by a Dana Dane track. It just kinda ended up that way, as most shows do @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:16 
I started counting tracks pretty late in the game - around show #19. Hopefully I was accurate by the time I got to the 200th track, which is the one you're hearing right now (as I said, now also the 271st track) @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

The regular "LP Version" of this track has a rockin' guitar solo that must not have felt very "disco" as it doesn't show up here - I did play it on @DJ_SLT's show once @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:11 
I didn't know until I looked her up on Discogs but Taka Boom is Chaka Khan's sister - it DOES explain some of her vocal stylings @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:09 
More slap bass! @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:09 
This is Taka Boom! I bought this 12" solely based on the track length and the words "Disco Version" - that technique is usually worth risking the dollar. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

Wow, "new Twitter" sure doesn't like tweeting until the second time I hit that "Tweet" button, huh?

This is apparently a Sennheiser vocoder. That would have been a good thing to mention DURING the show, but I often do my research a little too late. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

I love a good slap bass! I also love @kfaiFMradio and hope you consider making a pledge inspired by today's @DollarBinShow to help #keepitgoing (you can also try to pledge to get me to STOP tweeting, but you'll still be with me for the next hour)

Fashion and Duran Duran came up together but "Fabrique" didn't quite get the promotional/label oomph that "Rio" did - one wonders how new wave/new romantic might have evolved if they had been a little more level @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing
6.8.19 12:02 
This is FASHIØN, one of the groups that's gotten the most popular feedback from others AND me - I've found three of their 12" singles for a dollar each and played four different long tracks of theirs on the show. @DollarBinShow #keepitgoing

OK! At 12:00:00 I'll hit play on today's @DollarBinShow episode and start tweeting to nobody - if you wanna try to sync up with me, and find the "Listen Now" link for 8/6 or just hit the @mixcloud Play button. FIVE MINUTE WARNING
