Episode 198: Perfect Pop – Slade, Marshall Crenshaw, Descendents




October 16, 2017


Perfect Pop songs:

  • Slade “When The Lights Are Out” Old New Borrowed and Blue (Polydor Records) 1974
  • Marshall Crenshaw And The Handsome, Ruthless And Stupid Band “Favorite Waste of Time” Someday, Someway – Single (Warner Bros. Records) 1982
  • Descendents “Coolidge” Liveage! (SST Records) 1987

Other songs played:

  • Bette Midler “Favorite Waste of Time” No Frills (Atlantic Records) 1983
  • Lisa Said “Regular Guy” Estranged (Tall Short Records) 2017


It’s back (and for a WHOLE week)! Join Jim, Patrick, and a few awesome guests, as they go through songs that listeners have selected as ‘perfect’ and ‘pop.’

FUN FACT: The rock band Slade’s name has a very odd definition. According to Merriam-Webster, the name means “sole of a plow.” Why would they choose that? We really don’t know (they still rock, regardless).
