Song: Dead End StreetArtist: The KinksAlbum: Face To Face
read after bill says something about the kinks being on the edge of rock & roll.
Posted 5 months ago by Spuck:
Any new music is created on the back of that which came before. To say old
music is no good for whatever reason misses the point. When I was young,
I had no idea what people saw in Elvis. Not until I was in my 20s did I
"get it". I still don't get Sinatra. Oh, well. I know better than to
say that he sucks just because I don't get him.

The older I get,
the more I can appreciate history and all the influences that have
brought us to today. I don't get a lot of things but I know all it would
take is the correct time, place, people, whatever, to understand and
appreciate.

If you want to only hear what fits in your narrow
view, you should be listening elsewhere. The greatest thing about Radio
Paradise is that you get more than just what you think you want. Bill is
here to broaden your mind, whether you think you like it or not. There
are all kinds of places to hear only what you like and what you know.
Those places are a dime a dozen (to use an old, old phrase). This place
is special. Don't ruin it for those of us who appreciate.

Radio Paradise is a very rare gem.

I didn't think that song had been played here in a long time.  It was funny (and kind of pathetic) how outraged some posters were by Bill playing Bruce Lash tunes - some of the comments were furious.  Oddly, that song played a little while ago on SOMA-FM Secret Agent.

I tried to be cool, but inside my ticker was beating like a jungle drum ….a jungle drum pounding out a warning that I was ignoring. “Lucky me …to what do I owe this pleasure?” Then I noticed her eyes were on my salami(sandwich that is). “Hungry?” I inquired. “Ravenous”, she said, “I didn’t have breakfast this morning.” I offered her my salami sandwich, wishing it was bigger. “Thanks” she said, and added, “I’m parched too”, and she winked. “Bartender, the lady wants a …what will you have?” “Boilermaker”, she chimed in. “Boilermaker?...not exactly what I was expecting”, I said. “That’s not what most ladies drink”. She leaned over and whispered into my ear, “I’m not like most ladies.” I nearly fell off the stool. "How..how can I help you?" I stammered. "Rumor has it that you listen to a certain internet radio station with a heavenly vibe" she said. "Oh, you mean Radio Paradise."I blurted out. "Yes, that's it!" she exclaimed. "How might I tune into that frequency?" she asked. "Well, why don't we go to my place and I'll show you the ropes?" I prayed she would say yes. "OK" she said, "As long as we can also listen to Radio Paradise." My jaw nearly hit the floor, in my head, I said "Thank you Radio Paradise" over and over and over as we left the bar.

I'm 16 years old, it's 1982. I'm working the midnight shift at Shell Gas in North Vancouver. The quirky guy on shift before me leaves a tape in the grubby player. Tells me I'm welcome to listen. I press play and hear the Nebraska album all in one go. Just me and the urban nightscape.... I felt like I'd been hit by a ghost by the time I'd listened to both sides. I give this song a 10 when it's played in the context of the entire album.

I bought this album on a whim from Columbia House or some such music club back in the day. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I am a gringo from Texas and the only Spanish music that I had been exposed to was Tejano. Well I quickly learned an appreciation for the music. Finally, I saw the documentary in a massive, almost empty theater in Dallas. And, I was so moved by the music and the musicianship that it brought tears to my eyes.
Skip forward 10+ years when I started dating a transplanted Puerto Rican and I played the album for her. It brought tears to her eyes, "these are the songs my mother sang to me as a child." Well, we have been married 15 years. I think, at least in part, I can thank the Bueno Vista Social Club for my wonderful wife (and life). My appreciation of her culture, music, and food is what made her fall in love me me. And this album still brings tears to my eyes.

Anything he produced that's played here — or even howled in crappy karaoke bars — is a direct link to deep-dish American musical history.

Saw a great documentary on George Martin suffice to say Mr. Martin was not a fan of Spector.{#Lol}

20-odd years ago, I left my beloved Wellington seaside community (hey there, Breaker Bay) to study in Australia.  To help say goodbye to so many people I loved so much I organised an informal night of music at the local hall, with lots of friends providing the music.  The final act was a 5-piece (or maybe 6) band brought along by my friend Robbie Duncan.  I remember standing at the hall door watching as they carried all this big time gear into the hall during the set up.  Amps, speakers, keyboards, mixing desk, mic stands, lots of drums and guitar cases, cables everywhere.  And thinking "What the hell have I done?  This was supposed to be acoustic!".
The early part of the night went better than my wildest dreams.  By the time the final act came on, about 100 people were laughing, singing, dancing and having a great time.  I was standing at the back of the hall, musical duties over and pleasantly ripped thinking "This will be interesting, could go either way" when they launched into a cover of this song as their opening number.
Well, sometimes, the universe just comes up with things so special we are transported by the moment.  The band was tight from the first notes, the female lead singer nailed the vocals, all that fancy gear and sound system sounded incredible, the hall's acoustics were just right and the room went off.  I remember turning to my friend Kerry, no lover of the commercial pop song, and we both had huge smiles because everything was so right.  It sounded and felt fantastic.
Now, it may be cheesy.  It may be clichéd.  It may be commercial pop.  But if anyone slags this song within my hearing I will take them aside and forcefully explain how I once saw a performance of it define a moment for 100 people.  And yes, maybe you had to be there and possibly stimulant-affected but for those who were, it was transcendent.
Everyone's special music has it's own story.  Let's listen to it knowing that we all have our own stories, or gracefully PSD if you can't.  But let's stop dissing people here because their stories are different from ours.  We have social media and politicians for that.
Full respect to Bill and Rebecca!

Recently spent a week on a live-aboard in Hawaii. There was a 19 year-old working the ship. One night, he got out his ukulele and played this song for us. The memory is such a beautiful one that this could be an awful song and it would still make me smile. So sad. So evocative.
