TCS "Time Machine" on relay network
23 Aug 2015, 0345 UTC
6849.9 and some change...
0340z: Michael Jackson "Billie Jean", Dan Hartman "I Can Dream About You", Huey Lewis and the News "Power of Love".  Do you like Huey Lewis?  He's been compared to Patrick Bateman, but I find him much less bitter, cynical and likely to be an axe murderer.
0354z: Back to the Future clip.  Gotta get back to 1985.  I agree.
0356z: The Crystal Ship Relay Network ID.  And some Belinda for Fansome - Go Go's "Head Over Heels"
0400z: Kim Wilde "Kids in America"
0403z: Bangles "Walk Like an Egyptian"
0406z: Madonna "Like a Virgin".  Mr. Blonde insists it's about a girl who's very vulnerable and sensitive.
0410z: TCS email address, "Back to the Future" audio clip, Genesis - Phil Collins "Land of Confusion"
0415z: Bananarama "Cruel Summer"
0420z: Quarterflash "Harden My Heart".  Okay, just don't play Nickleback "Harden My Ears"
0423z: Naaay-nah, "99 Lust Balloons".
0429z: Sammy Hagar can't drive fitty-five.
0432z: Little Eddie Mahoney, shakin' his leprechaun feet.
0434z: Rick Springfield, the only man in rock and roll history to find a point moot.
0440z: Prince "Little Red Corvette".  Without Sandra Bernhard's dance interpretation, I'm nothing.
0443z: 1.21 giggle whats. You must have them or no time travel, mister.
0443z: C'mon, Eileen.
0447z: Duran Duran "Hungry Like the Wolf".  Thirsty like the fish.  Sweaty like Trump's toupee.
0451z: Jackson Browne "Lawyers in Love" with your money.
0455z: 'Til Tuesday.  In the dark I'd like to tickle Aimee Mann's feet, 'til Tuesday.
0500z: Ratt "Round & Round" pounding ground
0508z: Van Halen "Panama", Def Leppard "Photograph"
0516z: Signal fading a bit now, rebounding every few minutes.  Honeymoon Suite "I Got a New Grill Now.  It's a Lot Like a Weber"
0519z: Tommy Tutone "Jenny"
0524z: ID, Quint-essential shark serenade, Ramones.
0527z: Off.

Good show, thanky mysterious stranger, whomever you are.
