https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yacht_rock. It's in Wikipedia, so it must be a thing.

Let's go further back in time and listen to what a honky-tonk in 1926 would have most likely been playing.

I went to a "beach" club in Highlands Jerz (bay or inlet whatever that body is... not Ocean) And they had that Sirius Yacht thing playing way loud. The announcer w the pre recorded bits had a strange affect. Trying too hard at comedy. Sounded like a cough syrup experiment gone wrong
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:43:48 AM
Sounds about right...
TAndy 9:43:59 AM
Strawberry Alarm Mok 9:45:30 AM
lots of Hall/Oates, Michael McDonald and Christopher Cross
DSM 9:45:43 AM
I thought the Yacht Rock term came from the Funny or Die comedy series spoofing it, which if you haven't seen is really funny
DSM 9:47:30 AM
maybe a new genre, Yacht in Opposition will be born of this chat

@DSM - good one
Christine 9:49:34 AM
Interesting, DSM.

Read a funny story about early Led Zep tour in the south when Page n Plant met a local musician to buy a bass guitar off of him. They had to commute to him via a small boat for some reason. Allegedly the local young musician was Christopher Cross. Story was on the LZ official site in the show by show listings where people post comments entered by supposed former band mate of Chris i think. Doesn't matter if true or accurate. Funny story picturing it.
Brian D 9:50:27 AM
Not a yacht btw ha
Christine 9:50:47 AM
Hey, this is toe. I heard toe a couple days ago another fine WPRB show.

Brian, that announcer is somebody doing a shoddy impression of Jim Backus as Thurston Howell III
Bud Burroughs 9:52:04 AM
@Christine I remember that. Which show was it?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:52:33 AM
@Christina - zenfoyel's show
Brian D 9:52:35 AM
That's it Stevie! Ouch . Small doses it would be annoying enough. But they had that playing for hours...
Christine 9:53:40 AM
Just yesterday? Wow. That was a good show.
gboss 9:53:55 AM
I thought Yacht Rock was a clever descriptor when it was poking some fun. But the unironic embrace of the term by its fans has taken any fun out of it.
gboss 9:54:30 AM
So, I think abnormal YR show would be quite appropriate
Brian D 9:54:38 AM
Mi guitarra quiere matar..
Brian D 9:55:06 AM
