djhelcat (replacing bad file in playlist) Today's set is dedicated to the Cellar Door, which entertained teens on Friday nights until 1987 or so.
djhelcat The club was at the corner of Broad and Boulevard in Richmond, Va, and alternated sets between alternative and hip hop.
djhelcat These are some of the staples from the alternative sets. During the hip hop sets, the freaks would all sit down, smoke, and chat. (another replace)
djhelcat And we'd do the standard "Hey! Hey what! Get Laid, Get FSCKED!" for this one.
djhelcat Little did we know some of these bands would go on to have blockbusting careers.
djhelcat Others we'd never really hear from again.
djhelcat Morris Day would bring both crowds together to where the dance floor was overflowing, and everyone falling over each other to get on stage
djhelcat So many memories. Steve Lamb used to dress up as pirate Adam Ant and the girls would swoon.
djhelcat Speaking of Dead or Alive (this time with better bandwidth)
djhelcat This song still gets tons and tons of airplay, and not just because of Rhianna
djhelcat I used to air-keyboard this (the nonremix version, which isn't here). I still use it as a drill to reacquaint myself with a keyboard when I sit down.
djhelcat this one, too. in 1989 I played keys in a band that covered this and several other later Cure songs. (another replace)
djhelcat Then we'd have our mainstream minisets of goofy teenage rebel songs
djhelcat These two songs, actually, are kinda like love and marriage, horse and carriage, peanut butter and jelly, etc.
djhelcat This didn't really get spun at the Door, but it fits too well as the anthem of those of us who went there every week.
djhelcat My not-boyfriend of this era drove a bitchin' camero, and I was not his punk rock girl.
djhelcat On the off chance that a punk-ish song was spun, a half-hearted mosh pit would form. Rockitz was where the real action was.
