Antarctica, how did I insult you? Such is not the result of my comments and certainly not the intent. Nor do you ramble-you simply failed to read the comments of those I responded to. I pointed this out. Matter corrected. That issue closed.
Comment as much as you will-such is an inalienable right; and in this forum, an option. I sense we agree more than disagree.
As for Anon 5-5-03 7:37 AM, you may regard post-1987 CFNY issues and personalities as irrelevant; I don't.
Keep in mind Anon that almost 2/3rd of the time of CFNY's existence is after 1987. Keep in mind that the CFNY of 1986, 1983, 1981, and perhaps the late 70's were somewhat different entities.
Indeed, I'll ask you this: what is the greater difference, CFNY in 1977 vis a vis 1984, or 1984 vis a vis 2003? The former may be of a greater diffrence.
As Antactica indicated, CFNY in 1989-93ish was a good station. I'll augment Antarctica's arguement that not only was it better than it is now, but it was a far better station than it was 1983-4--unless you enjoyed listening, to the nth times, songs like Don't You Want Me Baby (perhaps the worse song of the 80's--tho the rest of the album was good); the dance remix of Homo Sapian; and How Soon Is Now (which I quickly found terribly boring even then).
Does anybody, save perhaps Antarctica, want this forum to be more than some old folks home of "them were the days"? Some of you sound like uninspired ex-hippies who thot the good old days ended by 1972?
Anon 5-6-03 7:37: are you the Anon of 5-6-03 3:01 PM or 3-6-03 7:16 PM? If so, and Vishna is so irrelevant to you, what are you doing in this conversation? Aren't you wasting time? Mayhaps you could, again, start your own catagory and talk about the good old days when you saw the Police at the Horseshoe, or about Costello's marriage to Diana Krall--I presume you are closer to his age than to Antarctica; or maybe Sting. None of them would have much time for CFNY as it exists now and I'm sure they all think today's music is all lame.
Look forward to all of your comments.
