    Gotta love living on the west coast where, at 9:23pm on Tuesday evening, the Wednesday Old School mix has already been posted.
    The news of Gene McFadden saddens me. “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” is one of the ten best R&B singles of all time, in my opinion.
    “Georgy Porgy” by Toto proves why the group was so underestimated back in the days before “Toto IV.” Excellent track. The Pocarro brothers, David Paich, and the rest of the band were true masters.
    “Let Me Tickle Your Fancy.” In 1982, when I was 16, a new Top 40 station in Chicago called WBBM (B96) played the song to death. Who’d have thunk it: A “duet” (of sorts) between Jermaine Jackson and Devo reaching number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100!?
    Yet again Master Flavors…another gem!

    Wow! You did not just pull out “BYOB!” I don’t think I know anyone else who liked that song.
    Man, another excellent mix!

    Yes EJ, That Bobby Caldwell joint is one of my favorites, along with Mtume, Gap Band & Cameo…You did your thing dog!
    I wouldn’t expect anything less!!
    Peace

    Hey now, we get a double dose of Cheryl Lynn today. Solo and on the hook of the Toto cut.

  5. 1 February 2006 at 13:48

    Wow! Both are gone now. I used to love that song. Still love that song. “Ain’t no stoppin’ us now. . . .”

    Ok…just playing this now…because not only did I trip and fall into some sexy this past year. I tripped and fell into a BUSTED A** job!
    Girlfriend: Michael…a CLASSIC.
    Back and Forth: visions of red crotch cups run through my head *shivers with disgust*
    Encore: an obvious favorite of mine…
