NightFlyRadio – No Static At All

Time to put the needle on the record. No sucker Djs, just two turntables and a microphone on the avenue by Radio City with a transistor.

Wdydfae commented on the last post about his memories of radio –

My inchoate fragments of radio memories don’t coalesce into a particular story. Radio wasn’t a big part of my childhood, as far as I can remember, unless I was riding in someone’s car and it happened to be playing.

…Then it moves into adulthood, and radio was in another country and language. Basically, lousy radio selection–just not a radio culture. Then I realized the radio riches I had left behind, with at least a channel for just about any genre you could want. So, belatedly I appreciated that the radio world of the States is vibrant–lot of stuff out there, and a whole way of talking, presenting yourself, presenting sound, pacing things.

Read the full comment here.

Kicking off with Steely Dan’s classic”FM” in spectacular style…. From the YouTube channel of the Empire State Building, followed by a big block of tunes to crank up to 11 –

“On October 29, 2015, the 50th anniversary of the installation of a Master FM Antenna on the top of the Empire State Building, the global landmark synchronized its world-famous tower lights to Steely Dan’s 1978 smash ‘FM (No Static At All).'”

Bonus points if you saw a young Geordi La Forge or maybe Tom & Jerry in there.

Hope you enjoyed the music.

  1. Another great Dan song that I either barely remember or never heard at all.

    I was going to mention “Radio Ga Ga” under the previous post, but I then I thought it would be so obvious that I wouldn’t be sufficiently cool.

    That’ll teach me. Great song. Great vid. Great compilation. I did in fact catch Geordi but not Tom & Jerry yet.

    I found a Zappa number “The Radio Is Broken”. It’s in that part of Zappa’s vocal oevres that is snarlingly sarcastic and gratingly obnoxious. I think you won’t like it.

    I have a theory Zappa did that kind of stuff to punish overly enthusiastic fans and sycophants.
