"Fire" - Ohio Players
(Jan./Feb. 1975, highest chart pos. #1 Hot 100 & R&B)
Kicking-off tonight's extravaganza, The Ohio Players, a funk band
from Dayton, and a modern remix of "Fire," one of their signature
songs, a chart-topping crossover hit in the early weeks of 1975.
Hi, I'm Grace Ryder, a 9-1-1 operator in Austin, Texas.
I'm married to a firefighter named Judd
on the hit TV rescue drama 9-1-1: Lone Star.
Live, from Shady Square,
I welcome you to the
in the Shady.
If you look up in the sky, you'll see that the wrecking ball is dropping.
Hear that sound? The crowd is cheering because it's party time.
Your regular host, Shady Seaweed, is under
the weather and couldn't be with us tonight,
but my friends and I, the newest members
of The Shady Bunch DJ team, are bound
and determined to take up the slack
and carry on with the show.
Our lineup of grade-A music stars will
send 2022 packing and get 2023 started
with a bang. Before I turn the mic over
to the next presenter and dispatch
first responders to that "Fire" the
Ohio Players reported, I want to
invite you to tune in my new show
...coming soon to S-P-M-M Retrosonic Radio.
Hello, my fellow Americans!
I'm Mellie Grant, the First Lady of the United States soon
to become the former First Lady and bitter ex-wife of the
President on the political thriller TV series Scandal.
Think I look like Jessica Whitly, Malcolm's mom
on Prodigal Son? Yeah... I get that a lot.
I call bullcrap!
I'll be much too busy serving my country as a
Shady Bunch DJ on S-P-M-M Retrosonic Radio.
Please join me for the debut of my new show
The 1600 Club -
Meet the Supremes
of Pennsylvania Avenue.
You'll meet the wonder women of
the White House, like me, and be
treated to the fabulous songs of
Motown's most popular artists
The Supremes. Sound like a plan?
I admit that I'm not a happy camper
lately. On my TV series Scandal,
the "slumber chamber" of the
White House is not exactly
Tranquility Base, and I've
got a Supremes song that
speaks to my plight as
an angry, frustrated
and bitter First Lady.
You see, my cheating hubby, The President, is always lying around with
his mistress, Olivia Pope. He even ditched me to spend Christmas
with his Ho Ho Ho! They do it right there in the oval office,
in hotels, on trains and boat and planes - you name it.
They're like a couple of bunny rabbits,
those two, and I'm sick of it! Make up
your mind, bucko... do you want me
and your political career, or her?

Based on your track record as a skirt chaser,
I get the distinct impression that you don't
really love me. You just keep me hangin' on!
"You Keep Me Hangin' On" - The Supremes
(Nov/Dec. 1966, highest chart pos. #1 Hot 100 & Cash Box & R&B)
I'm Penelope Guerrero, a starry-eyed, Kool-Aid drinking cult member
who comes to her senses and starts breaking bad and fighting back
against the Purge Night evildoers on the anthology action horror
TV series The Purge based on the film franchise of the same name.
I'll be joining other three other courageous women
from The Purge as hostesses of the new radio show
on S-P-M-M. The tunes we play are guaranteed to purge the dirge
and bust the blues. Think of us as vigilante superheroes on a
mission to stamp out boring elevator music in your lifetime.
The song sample I'm presenting in this
teaser is by a Latina singing star from
Southern California's Inland Empire,
a talented cover artist described as
"a young voice from an old soul."

If you're just tuning in, this is the star-studded Shady's Place special
New Year's Rockin' Eve in the Shady 2022.
I and other new members of The Shady Bunch are playing
samples from our upcoming S-P-M-M radio shows.
I'm Helen Pergman, Ronald's mother on David E. Kelley's
crime drama thriller TV series Big Sky.
Ronald's a long-haul trucker. He's not much to look at.
I've told Ronald over and over again that he'll never amount
to anything and that no woman will ever love or want him.
I remind him that he's a failure, just like his father.
The good news is that he will always have me
to point out his flaws and set him straight.
there's nothing quite like a mother's love.
Ronald and I will soon be joining
The Shady Bunch as hosts of a
new S-P-M-M radio show called
Sky King and
and I've got a sample song, a 1957
romantic ballad taken directly from
the soundtrack of our series Big Sky.

his signature song, a record that

than half a year on the chart

I'm Sarah, a wife and mother
and one of the few survivors
of a disaster at sea, a fiery
sail boat explosion in the
2019 horror film Mary.
It was a reversal of fortune
when Shady Del Knight
plucked me from the
water and placed me
behind the mic as
a member of his
Mary is my younger daughter's name.
Mary also happens to be the name of a boat my husband just had to buy. He got
it cheap... and we found out why on our family's maiden voyage to Bermuda.
Turned out our vessel is haunted by a witch that has a nasty habit
of killing passengers and crew whenever anyone takes her out to sea.
On my S-P-M-M radio show...
Along Comes Mary...
I'll bring you the best songs about boats, ships, sailing and the sea,
including gems of the Yacht Rock genre, a music category that,
by and large, has been neglected here at Shady's Place.
Smooth sailing is guaranteed
as I present EZ listening rock
sounds that promote changes
in lattitudes and changes in attitudes... leaving you
I've got a sample for you,
a chart-topping song from
the hit Tom Cruise movie
Cocktail. Like the Johnny
Mathis song Helen played,
this one cruised the chart
more than half a year
from 1988 to 1989.
