Giggles Radio - 1982 // Another year from our DJ's life, and the music that formed it

Published by Alex Andronov

Giggles Radio keeps on trucking and this year we reach 1982 which was the year that your host moved to America, Canada reached full political independence from the United Kingdom, The Weather Channel launched in the states, the longest Lunar eclipse of the 20th Century (108 minutes) occurred, the first emoticons were posted on an electronic bulletin board by Scott Fahlman, the Commodore 64 was released, the Mary Rose was raised, and the first compact discs were released but only in Germany.

So join host Alex Andronov as he features a year from his life and plays the songs that either came out in that year or he experienced for the first time in that year. It's his Audio-graphy.

Join us for 2 hours (ish) of music, chit chat and random biographical information from 4pm.

    Night Amy!

    A godsend! :D

  • I'll go live now so that people can get the ads out of the way.

  • Night Amy!

  • The only annoying thing for me is that I like to see how many viewers I have... But I can't see the viewers from the lofipage... oh well

  • The screen on your live site compresses you from top to bottom a little bit, giggles. Makes you look like you put on 50 pounds....

  • The screen on your live site compresses you from top to bottom a little bit, giggles. Makes you look like you put on 50 pounds....

    ah... I was worried about that....

  • The screen on your live site compresses you from top to bottom a little bit, giggles. Makes you look like you put on 50 pounds....

    It's stretched to 16:9. Lofi is 4:3, so he looks fine there.

  • I can either look very thin of very large

  • It is a little better now... move your chair back a little bit more....

  • you may need to invest in a widescreen camera?

  • Boston contingent in the house!

  • Good luck on the show, Alex! I probably won't have time to comment a lot (I'm really rather busy right now), but I'll be listening. ;)

  • Audio just a touch soft.

  • Audio just a touch soft.

    Better, ta.

  • Sorry...

  • Boston contingent in the house!

    :)

  • Sorry if I just blasted your ears off

  • you may need to invest in a widescreen camera?

    Yeah.... i just need to get the settings to match...

  • :)

    Janna and I have finished packing and we have a few minutes before we have to leave.

  • Sorry if I just blasted your ears off

    No you didn't, it's just right now. :) Before you were whispering your show to us.

  • Startledbunny played a newer version of this in a podcast, I had no idea it was a cover/remix

  • Janna and I have finished packing and we have a few minutes before we have to leave.

    Well you'll be spending quite a few of them listening to Kraftwork...

  • Startledbunny played a newer version of this in a podcast, I had no idea it was a cover/remix

    There is a really nice remix of this done by the band themselves I think. But it breaks the rules of the show.

  • Well you'll be spending quite a few of them listening to Kraftwork...

    We like it.

  • This was super influential...

  • There is a really nice remix of this done by the band themselves I think. But it breaks the rules of the show.

    They're your rules, break them if you want.

  • Ahhhh, Giggles you did not follow my idea of the leadoff song this time....

  • This was super influential...

    Never heard this one before...

  • They're your rules, break them if you want.

    There are rules, this isn't Nam ;) (Big Lebowski referrence)

  • Decaf coffee is horrid stuff !

  • Ahhhh, Giggles you did not follow my idea of the leadoff song this time....

    Not this time... I feel the leadoff music needs to be nice and gentle.

  • I going to get Christine's Panda after you for that!

  • When you said 'boat' Janna was all over that - "Rio."

  • When you said 'boat' Janna was all over that - "Rio."

    She knows her music videos does Janna

  • She knows her music videos does Janna

    Was it their last single (or signal as I kept trying to say?)

  • I must admi I asked Giggles for the last two songs, so when he mentioned "boat:, I knew what was coming up...

  • She knows her music videos does Janna

    Was it their last single (or signal as I kept trying to say?)

    I think you meant that it was their last big single of the year, cause well, we will not be hearing "the Reflex" for about a month....

  • I'm on the phone, so I don't hear Giggles' bridges so much. But 3 brilliant songs in a row! :D

    Lovely considering the baseball season just started too. :)

  • Loving the Billy Joel

  • I'm on the phone, so I don't hear Giggles' bridges so much. But 3 brilliant songs in a row! :D

    Is that because my bridges are quieter do you mean?

  • maybe less famous than Mozart.

  • Is that because my bridges are quieter do you mean?

    Nah, it's because I was on the phone. Looks like the volume is just fine.

  • maybe less famous than Mozart.

    a tad

  • LOL! That was funny. This is the first time since the beginning of the show I have time to open this screen... and all I saw was a microphone without Giggles behind it. XD

  • Bow Wow Wow! Had a nice drum beat there....

  • The secret to speaking German is to make up words.... Excellent...

  • Beverage update: switched from coffee to beer.

    and Maryland cookies.

    This is a very weird song, addictive though. :)

  • LOL! That was funny. This is the first time since the beginning of the show I have time to open this screen... and all I saw was a microphone without Giggles behind it. XD

    I had to run and get a beer :)

    You'd think it would be boring...

    Yeah absolutely

  • Gloria, that's the third song I picked....

  • it's the SAME song!

  • it's the SAME song!

    indeedydo

  • it's the SAME song!

    Someone should do a mashup :)

  • it's the SAME song!

    indeedydo

    I guess that's the reason why I always thought "Let's get Physical" would have been an awesome song if O E-J would not have been the lead singer...

  • I was listening to it and thought to myself... I have to look this up on wikipedia to find out how much they got sued for... And then it turned out it was the same writer.

  • I guess that's the reason why I always thought "Let's get Physical" would have been an awesome song if O E-J would not have been the lead singer...

    O N-J, you mean. ;)

    E-J invented her

    One tune, twice the profit. :D

  • O N-J, you mean. ;)

    E-J invented her

    Olivia Eddie-Jordan? :D

  • E-J invented her

    The only thing E-J invented was Jordan Grand Prix's exit from F1 !

  • Chooooon! :D

  • You have the wrong one.... I would have picked Thriller for the awesomeness of Vincent Price rapping....

  • Don't panic I was just saying that so I could do the link... there will be more...

  • The Big problem is that there still more Duran Duran and Eurythmics making huge hits too in 82 and other artitist as well.

  • You have the wrong one.... I would have picked Thriller for the awesomeness of Vincent Price rapping....

    Can't go wrong with Beat It

  • Bye Giggles, time to check out.

    Kai, Janna and Bassano

    Good night, Boston! :D

  • Bye Giggles, time to check out.

    See you later... Have a good trip

    that works. :D

  • I think so... But I'm not sure... You have to use the ustream app

    Aha...will try.

  • oddly, though, your viewership hasn't changed that much between series.

    We were routinely around twice the amount in the old days... And people watched it saved on the site which it isn't this time.

  • We were routinely around twice the amount in the old days... And people watched it saved on the site which it isn't this time.

    ahhh, yes. i was thinking in terms of raw numbers. i wonder why there's less viewers this time considering you were on at the same time...

  • Reminds me of Congo by Miami Sound Machine.......

  • ahhh, yes. i was thinking in terms of raw numbers. i wonder why there's less viewers this time considering you were on at the same time...

    I think there was the post race factor... Most people were around for the races already, whereas with no race... people are off outside *shudders*

  • And it's just reminding people again

  • I think there was the post race factor... Most people were around for the races already, whereas with no race... people are off outside *shudders*

    good point. hopefully, it picks up when we get to Europe. :D

  • Or i could stop being so lazy and go and get the laptop from the kitchen :)

    *goes to get the laptop from the kitchen*

  • Waffling? You? The very thought.

  • Waffling? You? The very thought.

    I try to only do that in Belgium

  • Waffling? You? The very thought.

    :D

  • Man, hearing this song for the first time in ages! First heard this in GTA: Vice City. :)

    On another note, the 70s beat is all but gone now. Music well and truly 80s-sounding now.

  • Fourstar has arrived just in time for one of the two divisive tracks of the selection... Next one up...

  • Great tune. Love the seemingly random number of bars in the verse.

  • My goodness, it's just one choon after another! :D

    And I won't be born for another four years...

  • I was about to wave a lighter in the air but then I remembered I don't smoke.

  • Crap. I already have a 10 song wish list for 1983.....

    I'm adding many things to a Spotify playlist called "Stuff played on Giggles Radio" to remind me to buy them later.

    This one won't be on it though :)

  • I was about to wave a lighter in the air but then I remembered I don't smoke.

    You can always wave your phone in the air. That's what the cool kids do nowadays. :D

  • This one won't be on it though :)

    Not that it is a bad song, it isn't.. just lots of wedding receptions :)

  • Nothing to do with Peter Gabriel, but anyone got a Slegdehammer?

  • Not that it is a bad song, it isn't.. just lots of wedding receptions :)

    Hmmm. I actually haven't heard yet in any receptions myself. Maybe weI should have it in ours. :D

  • Was that a half beat drop before the chorus? Crikey.

  • Yes! More impressions!

  • Hmmm. I actually haven't heard yet in any receptions myself. Maybe weI should have it in ours. :D

    If the second and third last songs of the show aren't on your list then your list is wrong

  • Cheesy bridge, but it works. :P

    The Mark Webbah song! :D

  • Somebody tuned in during my impression - worried

  • I learned the flute part to this when I was at school. Because it was the only cool thing you could play on the flute. Man, did the ladies swoon*.

    * No.

  • If the second and third last songs of the show aren't on your list then your list is wrong

    Will take note of it. ;) Remind me when we get there?

  • A mate called Dave came over from Australia a few years ago, and this came on the radio - he was amazed it was popular here

  • I remember this was the first tune to which my Granddad said "You can't even hear what they're saying. That's just noise, lad..."

    Goodness knows what he'd think of today's music... :D

  • ooh good synth action

  • My father was a die-hard Four Seassons fan. Once he complaied about this song where he could not understand what the lead singer was saying... my response.

    Dad. You must have heard of The Rolling Stones's "Satifaction" growing up....

  • You know La Roux!

    She'd be flattered.

  • I remember this was the first tune to which my Granddad said "You can't even hear what they're saying. That's just noise, lad..."

  • Brill. I'm getting the kids to do the Madness nutty walk round the kitchen...

  • Oh No! The Maxwell House coffee commerical song!

    grrr adverts

  • There's a great Girl Talk mash up of this with some mental rapping from Dominique Young Unique.

    Somewhat of a niche audience for that comment, I imagine.

  • Oh No! The Maxwell House coffee commerical song!

    grrr adverts

    Well it was the reason why I did not request it.

  • CHOON! :D

  • Quincy Jones

  • Or was it?

  • Yes! Billie Jean...

  • Quality (and most bootlegged introduction in the world, ever.)

  • Quincy didn't like it...

    Apparently they did 120+ mixes of this song!

  • Quality (and most bootlegged introduction in the world, ever.)

    Quincy apparently said, "you can keep it, but you have to cut the intro" And Michael said, "no that's the Jelly, that's what makes me want to dance". And Quincy knew then he couldn't win.

  • I'm an idiot

  • Awesome song Giggles !

  • /dashboard is what I'm supposed to say

    Oh :)

  • I like this more than the cover which got to No.1.

  • And here I was thinking that the really slow version of this song that came out a few years ago was the original! Guess not then. :)

  • I like this more than the cover which got to No.1.

    I like both... Although Gary Jules weirds me out because he sounds totally like Michael Stipe

  • And here I was thinking that the really slow version of this song that came out a few years ago was the original! Guess not then. :)

    ah no

  • ah no

    :)

  • Aha. The dashboard is where the easy quoting thing happens. I'd forgotten that :)

  • ah no

    I hear! Still, you've got to cut me at least a little bit of slack. I was -4 in 1982. ;)

  • I hear! Still, you've got to cut me at least a little bit of slack. I was -4 in 1982. ;)

    So was I! :D

    Although I'm an 80s music guy, which is why I LOVE this episode. :)

  • I hear! Still, you've got to cut me at least a little bit of slack. I was -4 in 1982. ;)

    All slack cut :) My fav thing is when people listen to my show and go... "I did not know that"

  • w00t w00t! :D

  • So was I! :D

    Really? And you knew this anyway? You're good!

  • Back to back sounds like a scary thought in Giggles Radio

  • Really? And you knew this anyway? You're good!

    Hehehe. Yeah! I'm an 80s guy. Which is really funny, because my fiancee is older than me, but she prefers 90s music! :)

  • Back to back sounds like a scary thought in Giggles Radio

    For me? WOW. :D

  • CHOON! :D

    Never said it so many times in a single show. :)

  • It's not a wedding until this has been played. I'd go as far as to say they should make this the moment of legal matrimony. If I recall correctly, we played it twice at ours (although under my proposed rules that might be bigamy...)

  • Hahah. When I worked in the Screwfix distribution warehouse we had a local 'oldies' station on all the time, this came on fairly often and there was a guy who'd always without fail do the higher-pitch funny-voiced 'come on Eileen'

  • Hehehe. Yeah! I'm an 80s guy. Which is really funny, because my fiancee is older than me, but she prefers 90s music! :)

    LOL! That's an interesting combination. Ah well, it's also a brilliant excuse for playing an 80s and 90s mixed tape at the reception. :P

  • Yes! Ed and David's lesser known brother.

  • LOL! That's an interesting combination. Ah well, it's also a brilliant excuse for playing an 80s and 90s mixed tape at the reception. :P

    Maybe I should offer to be a wedding DJ!

  • Yes! Ed and David's lesser known brother.

    I was so going to do that joke!

  • only 1 song left...

  • LOL! That's an interesting combination. Ah well, it's also a brilliant excuse for playing an 80s and 90s mixed tape at the reception. :P

    We're actually thinking of having a game at the reception - they'd have to guess how many songs I picked, and how many songs she picked. :D

  • We're actually thinking of having a game at the reception - they'd have to guess how many songs I picked, and how many songs she picked. :D

    Good idea :)

  • only 1 song left...

    haven't heard this one before. :)

  • class

  • haven't heard this one before. :)

    On the A show... And the best of show (I think)

  • We're actually thinking of having a game at the reception - they'd have to guess how many songs I picked, and how many songs she picked. :D

    Great idea

  • We should work out which year has the most best of show songs on it

  • We're actually thinking of having a game at the reception - they'd have to guess how many songs I picked, and how many songs she picked. :D

    That's a nice idea, very original. You know, you should pick one song together, so you'll have a trick question.

  • That's a nice idea, very original. You know, you should pick one song together, so you'll have a trick question.

    Awesome :)

  • I was so going to do that joke!

    Oh noes!

  • That's a nice idea, very original. You know, you should pick one song together, so you'll have a trick question.

    Hehe, we're not that devious! :D But I might choose a couple of 90s songs, and she might choose a few 80s songs too - just to make it interesting. :)

    'Rio' is a classic, and right year...

  • Bah. Three Michael Jackons but only one Duran Duran and no Eurythmics...

    More Duran Duran later in the decade, hopefully.

    But 1987 will see more of MJ...

  • Sweet Dreams wasn't out until 83...

    One song for next time, then. :D

  • Great show, so many good picks :)

  • Great show, so many good picks :)

    Best show of the series to date for me. It'll be hard to beat! :D
