Totally 80’s Music Open Thread


Hot Air:

Finally. Research shows beer healthier than water

We all knew it was true, but the Vast Vegan Conspiracy and their willing partners in the media were never open enough to investigate the situation honestly. Alcohol is good for you. In fact, it’s proof positive that God loves us and wants us to be happy. But now, at long last, the scientific community is coming around to see the light.

KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Forget water or Gatorade. The drink of choice to rehydrate after a workout is beer.

Researchers at Granada University in Spain found beer can help retain liquid better than water alone. The results were published in the British newspaper The Telegraph.

The study involved a group of students. They were asked to work out until their body temperature reached 104 degrees.

Researchers then gave beer to half of the students and water to the other half.

Not only did the beer rehydrate the test subjects better, but the alcohol apparently served as a minor pain reliever for the aches and stresses of working out. Of course, even the eggheads running this promising study failed to see the forest for the trees, missing the one obvious solution to the entire conundrum. If you just didn’t work out in the first place and stayed on the couch drinking beer, you would require neither hydration or pain relief. But we’ll clearly have to be patient and bring these people around one step at a time.


It’s Beer Thirty!

      The only person the Chicago press has covered is Debbie Halvorson who ran against JJJ in the past and lost to him big time. They are covering her — when they cover anyone outside the GOP in that district — most likely because she lost and they pretend there is no other GOP running. Good for this rebel reporting. I’m gonna look for more from him.
      Just yesterday,
      I heard comments from Mel Reynolds who is running in the 2nd district. He’s getting press coverage. He’s also the person who was in prison for mutliple offenses including mail fraud and sexual contacts with a minor. One of the “top contenders” for this vacancy. This is Chicago politics and the politics of the Illinois Democrats.

    Sadly, this shows up as one of the “Worst” on music history lists, but I like it as it always gets me dancing when wedding bands play it :D

      I liked Greg’s radio show when I was in N.CA. Can’t remember, maybe a San Jose station, or somewhere around there.

        • DandyTiger says:

          No, it was k-fox (kufx), 98.5, in San Jose.

          • myiq2xu says:

            They must have changed the station letters. When I was up there 98.5 was KOME – hard rock and shock jocks.

          • myiq2xu says:

            KOME attracted a loyal South Bay rock audience throughout the 1970s and early 1990s, against original San Jose FM rock rival KSJO. Both stations managed to attract some listeners within neighboring San Francisco against Tom Donahue’s well-known KMPX and KSAN, neither of which had a significant presence in the South Bay. KOME’s diamond shaped stickers were a common sight on vehicles and high school lockers around the area. Several on-air slogans suggested the sexual connotations of its call letters, probably the most memorable being Dennis Erectus 1977–1992 exclaiming “Don’t touch that dial, it’s got KOME on it!,” as well as others saying things like “K-O-M-E all over your radio dial,” “Wake up with KOME in your ear,” and “The KOME spot on your dial.” Not surprisingly, Playboy magazine found this newsworthy enough to mention the station.

        • DandyTiger says:

          Yeah, I think both still existed, just k-fox took over that frequency leaving kome with others. Not sure what happened.

          • myiq2xu says:

            In 1997, Infinity Broadcasting, which had recently merged with CBS, [4] purchased KITS “Live 105,” San Francisco from Entercom, and ran both stations with identical formats for a short time. The company was legally required to sell one station when they took over American Radio Systems in May 1998, and opted to sell the 98.5 frequency to Jacor, owners of longtime rival KSJO. Jacor transferred their classic rock station KUFX and its callsign to their newly acquired frequency, thus ending KOME. CBS/Infinity transferred two members of KOME’s air staff (Ally Storm and No Name), and the Stern and Loveline [5] syndicated shows, to KITS as “The New Live 105″. [6][7] The KOME call letters were retired from the Bay Area, resurfacing briefly on a small co-owned AM station outside the market. At this writing, the KOME call letters are used in Meridian TX at 95.3.

          Now I listen to this way good local station (they stream too): http://www.wnrn.org

          • myiq2xu says:

            I listen to homemade CD’s or Redneck Radio in the car. It’s probably one of those mega-radio corporations that just hires “local” DJ’s to talk between the pre-programmed songs.

            Remember when DJ’s actually made their own playlists?

        • DandyTiger says:

          Yeah. Seems like most stations are those mega stations any more. We have a few of them even in this rinky-dink town. At least there are a few here and there that still do something original. I haven’t really scoured internet based radio stations, but I bet a lot of them are good.
