If I tried to enter an all-encompassing playlist (which would be around 30 songs- including remixes), my thoughts about every song listed here, every album (which I do own), and comments about each of the group members, background vocalists, producers, and remixers, it would be like reading a small book. I’m a major fan, for sure. I’m not the only one. Check out how the collaboration with the one and only Trader Mike came about…

    One of us has some serious psychic powers. THis is right on time as this thunderstorm (In November???) just knocked out my satellite TV. Now I can listen to my favorite group instead of the drones on CNBC.
    And Happy Thanksgiving…

  3. Loose Ends’ Greatest Hits Radio.Blog

    EJ brings the heat with today’s Old School Wednesday Radio Blog featuring my all-time favorite group, Loose Ends. They don’t make ’em like that any more!…

    “Don’t You Ever” is like the stealth bomb classic with the Slick Rick sample. Unfortunately I can’t hear “You Can’t Stop The Rain” without thinking about Shaquille O’Neal’s rap song. Hey, at least it had Biggie on it.
    Happy Thanksgiving, brah!

    Hey ej!
    This group is one of my all time favorites! It’s unfortunate that when I click on the link, the radio blog comes up, but no music is in the box. If you can help, That would be great!
