A highlight from Hour 1 - Celtics Avoid Sweep
You have a question. Did you vote already? Yes, I did. All right. Yep. I voted for the seventies. Oh, let's go. Yes. Some Stevie play some. Oh, there's a bunch of good ones. You just forgot them. Sticks. Kiss foreigner. Yeah. That's best for your cookout. Yeah. Yes. Yes. Eat the midweek results so far. Yes. Forty five percent of the vote. Seventies. OK. Crushing. All right. Crushing. Nobody wants to hear any music from the odds. Not at all. Yeah. Yeah, Paul. You know, my wife asked me the other day before we get to sports. What was the first song you remember hearing as a child where it's like a hit song that you're like, oh, I remember where I heard it or where I was. And she asked me, I remember being at a pizza place and someone played crocodile rock by Elton John. And I was like, oh, that's that's a very popular song. And I was a kid and I thought it was cool. Do you guys remember the first hit song you kind of remember as a child? Todd. I remember being at my friend Greg Bieber's house, Brian Bieber, actually. And he had Glass Houses, Billy Joel. And I hadn't heard it before. And I just fell in love with that cassette. It's still rock and roll to me in particular. And I had to run out to Sam Goody or wherever and get the cassette of Billy Joel, Glass Houses, because it's still rock and roll to me. OK. Yeah. Marv, do you remember the first song that you heard? Yeah, I remember vividly. My mom was a big Anita Baker fan. So she had the song Sweet Love. It was just, you know, very, you know. Yeah. Paulie knows about it. Yeah. What about you, Seaton? I don't know if it was the first song I ever heard necessarily, but the one that I was like, whoa, what is going on right now? Motley Crue Shout at the Devil. That was like, I think that's 1983, 84 maybe. So I was, you know, five, six years old. And I was like, hell yeah, this is awesome. I think it was The Beatles for me. And there were a couple of them. I just remember Help, Strawberry Fields. But those were the ones I was like, man, they're like three minutes or less. And they're all like catchy poppy. And they stayed with, still stay with me. It's one of those where you hear the song and it takes you back, you know, many, many, many years ago. Yes. You know, it's one that really jumps out from that time, too, that is definitely one of the earliest songs I can remember is Rod Stewart Infatuation. OK. I remember that vividly, like sitting in my house at a piano looking at the cassette tape of Rod Stewart Infatuation. OK. Not the Rod Stewart song I would pick out of all the great Rod Stewart songs. But yes, Pauline. In fifth grade, we had a teacher and he had us each bring in an album for like a Friday, almost like a play thing. And he had a record player. And I didn't have a lot of albums, so I borrowed my Sharona by the Knack from my sister, which was the number one song in America. But my friend, Corey Milton, who sat next to me, brought in the Sugarhill Gang and never heard any rap before. I don't think anyone had heard Rapper's Delight by the Sugarhill Gang. That was fifth grade. Why do we always mention somebody's name? Like, you couldn't say my friend brought in Rapper's Delight. I don't know. It's got to be Corey Milton. It's such a good memory. Fritzie said, oh, yeah, I went over there. Oh, so now that makes the story real. Like, before that, I wasn't going to believe that you went over to somebody's house. Now that we attached a name to the whole experience, it makes sense. So I'm listening to music with Greg McCracken. He knew his music. Yes, he did. No, his brother did. See, that's for me. was more my older brother. We shared a room. So he's five years older than me. So he was way ahead of getting records or tapes or whatever and listening to that. So whatever he was listening to, I kind of glommed onto. I was the same way. One of my older brothers had like seven albums. And I remember one was Jimi Hendrix. One was Zeppelin. One was Creedence Clearwater. And I think there was a Stones in there and a Beatles. But that was all I knew about music, you know, as far as an album went. And you'd hold those albums and you would read the liner notes. And it was so important that you were listening to a whole album there, not just one song. Yes. And yeah, it would be like everything from probably Motley Crue to Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions and stuff. My brother was listening to all this stuff. And when we had Chuck D in studio years ago, I was just like, man, my older brother, I've been listening to you since forever because my older brother would always play the records in our room. And he just said, man, thank God for all the brothers. Huh? Hell yeah, Chuck. Yeah. Bobby Prenitis, the Wu -Tang first album entered 36 Chambers. I had no idea who Wu -Tang was. He was like, you're bugging. He was like, listen to this. You're bugging. Protect Your Neck came on. And when we had met the man on that scene, me and C, I was just like, man, the fact that I talked to him was unbelievable. I was like, I was a fan of you at 10. You were a sex symbol at 10. You're a sex symbol at 39. Like, I was like, this is insane. Welcome to the program here. Already in progress. We'll have a poll question. Got a stat of the day. Play of the day. All that coming up. The Celtics are still alive and they win comfortably. Why do I get the feeling this is going seven games?
