Nothing discussed on this board is on the radar of more than 200 people in the state I would wager.
Then I met them all! All 200 people on this particular radar.
When I was doing the in-store in Tallahassee, I walked in to the clerk playing The King Khan and BBQ Show album. "Waddlin Around" was the selection. Next, they played the Reigning Sound - the LIVE from Goner CD (yeah, the store manager has it!) - various tracks all through the day. They played a TON of Reigning Sound during the day - not sure if they did because I was there OR because the clerks in the store are the 4 cool people in Tallahassee, but they were on my page and made my 3 hours there most pleasurable. I was SO THRILLED to hear BBQ that I immediately rang up Eric O to tell him.
I think I even caused the purchase of 2 copies of the King Khan/BBQ record, 4 copies of Time Bomb High School, 1 copy of Soul Food AND 1 copy of Greg Oblivian & the Tip Tops. People were asking me for recommendations and that's what I moved. I also moved 1 Woggles record. Yep, I was a pushy sales person. I put CD's into people's hands and walked them to the check out; I would not let them change their minds.
Other records played: Elvis Costello, This Year's Model; The Jam, This is the Modern World; X, first album; Gun Club, Las Vegas
That's all I remember. In Tampa, they played X, The Jam, the Ramones, Clash.
There was one kid there who was a HUGE Alley Cats fan, so I hipped him to River City Tanlines, and hoped that the completist in him would be drawn to the Alley Cats b-side...
