CKLW Lists from Mark Pattison . Mark Pattison wrote: A friend told me yesterday he stumbled onto your site. I looked at it today and was blown away.

But my biggest brush with CKLW was being a contestant in early 1969 in its "Time Machine" contest. The contestant picked any year of the 20th century in advance. Then the station played its account of a news event. If the event happened in the year you guessed, you won $500. Of course, the thought of playing it was a pipe dream, because you'd get a busy signal after dialing the fourth digit; it was practically a reflex action to hang up and try again when the voice on the other line told me I was the correct caller. The year of the event from the last hour was 1917; I made up my mind to guess 1965. The event? The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution -- 1964. Just one year away from $500! As Maxwell Smart would have said, "Missed it by THAT MUCH!" I did get a little 1969 calendar just for playing. The next phone line to be jammed was mine as friends from school -- all of whom listened to CKLW -- tried to call me to tell me that they had heard me.

Anyone tuning in and thinking that Sarandon embrace the poppy, sweet-as-pie side of Slumberland (as typified by the Aislers Set or Rocketship) will be set straight right off by the title the . trio gave its first full-length album. Kill Twee Pop! is not the work of guys who worship Amelia Fletcher and want to spend all night folding 7" covers while listening to Beat Happening, and that's OK. Instead, it's the sound of angry, political musicians who aren't afraid to be fractured, jarring, and off-putting in the way past groups like obvious inspiration bIG fLAME and Fire Engines were. And really, it's not a huge surprise to find a band like that on Slumberland, considering they named an early label comp, Why Popstars Can't Dance, after a bIG fLAME track. So if you know you are getting light-speed strumming, off-kilter tempos, angular melodies, and commentary instead of jangle, fuzz, and love songs, then you may be able to embrace Sarandon for what they are instead of rebuffing them because of what you may have expected them to be. On the other hand, even if you know what you are getting, you may be left cold by the band's monochromatic production values, the sometimes obvious lyrics (picking on twee pop is really not very original), and the general lack of memorable songs. In fact, by the end of the record the skittery guitar (whose tone never varies) and flat vocals become wearisome, which is certainly far from what the band intended. With some variation in sound and some tighter songs, the band could make a good record, but as it stands, when you need jittery, awkward post-punk with extra bile, you'll be far more likely to turn to bIG fLAME or Fire Engines than to Sarandon.

Marques Colston delivered six catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets in the Saints' Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.
