Marcus Watt 10:21:22 AM
Hi, Casey. I should put a reminder on my phone. I'm just tuning in.
Casey (host) 10:21:47 AM
If you wanna catch next week's show live than sure
Casey (host) 10:21:55 AM
I start at 10
Marcus Watt 10:38:43 AM
I like your show on a Sunday morning. I'm always home, and there's no place to go. Well, no place rational.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 10:47:00 AM
Swell Selections! Cheers, DJ Casey!
Casey (host) 10:47:34 AM
Yeah it is kinda nice. I always avoided mornings cause I was never close to the studio but I can have a quick breakfast and hop on by 10 at home
Marcus Watt 10:51:10 AM
I just wish you had three hours.
Casey (host) 10:52:27 AM
Wish there were more hours in the day cause DJ McSweden deserves 3 too
Marcus Watt 10:53:30 AM
Lots of good people on the station.
DJ McSweden 10:54:34 AM

TopNotch First Hour!
Marcus Watt 11:04:22 AM
I didn't recognize MBV, which is odd because I saw them at the Troc around '88.
Casey (host) 11:05:37 AM
Yeah I heard that MBV song and was like "which Joy Division clone is this?"
Casey (host) 11:07:05 AM
Isn't Anything came out in '88 so by that time they had probably pivoted to what they're better known for today
Marcus Watt 11:07:53 AM
Mark E.!!!
Casey (host) 11:08:46 AM
About 20 years ago somebody hired a singing telegram of this song for an on air birthday prank
Casey (host) 11:08:59 AM
Lemme throw a link to that blog entry in the notes
Marcus Watt 11:10:33 AM
Get him, Clarice! Who gets that reference?
Casey (host) 11:14:06 AM
Going to assume that's to Silence of the Lambs although I unfortunately have never actually seen that movie
Marcus Watt 11:18:58 AM
Spoiler alert: The serial killer is playing Hip Priest when Clarice shows up.
Casey (host) 11:19:29 AM
Casey (host) 11:28:55 AM
Shocked to find that in 5 years I never played "Death Trip" on the radio
Marcus Watt 11:32:11 AM
James W. kills it here.
Casey (host) 11:32:38 AM
Absolutely does. On the whole album but this song especially
Brian D 11:37:46 AM
Wow. what a set goin on here
Casey (host) 11:38:00 AM
This is the prequel to The Boys Are Back In Town
Casey (host) 11:38:42 AM
That David Nance track gave me an excuse to play some 70s bands who played with their Marshalls dimed out
Marcus Watt 11:39:47 AM
Wow. I saw Thin Lizzy open for Queen in '77. Yeah, I'm old.
Casey (host) 11:39:57 AM
Sounds like quite a show
Casey (host) 11:40:18 AM
The artwork for this record is so cool too
