intro 

hey friends, this my account for posting the 70s and 80s records (and sometimes some other stuff) that come by my turntable and spotify.

you might know me from my charity playlists at and for my much-publicized devotion to and other smooth music.

discogs in the profile to track the out-of-print, not-streaming stuff I hunt down; spotify for So. Many. Playlists.

i'm a dad and i like dad music. :df:

howdy it’s #bandcampfriday

I make remixes, edits, and DJ mixes as Dads FM at dadsfm.bandcamp.com

I recently released Volume 2 of #YSides, my mixes of rare, weird, or obscure #yachtrock. Volume 2 is all covers, and it’s pretty great!

I also have stickers and shirts available, worldwide.

this morning i finally got my hands on one of my holy-grail records and the feeling of getting an album you've been searching for YEARS and it is EVERY BIT as good as you hoped, oooh baby it just makes everything better

It's a great tragedy that "let's play contemporary hit music behind our tv show" was not invented until 1984 because a lot of early 80s cop shows would be improved by "ride like the wind"

Vol 2 of my #yachtrock DJ mixtape series #YSides is out now! This one is called "Covered Under Sail"—every song is a cover.

Download or stream free on Bandcamp, and check out Vol 1 and my edits there as well.

Happy Spring!

if you have children* and are interested in moving to/creating an alt on a trans-inclusive, chill, and respectful #hometown instance (that’s a fork of mastodon with local-only posting and a few other choice customizations), check out dads.cool or cooler.mom! Three years running, active moderation, pleasant people. Feel free to DM or @ me. Boosts welcome.

Really getting tired of Christian yacht rock, there is so much of it and yes, it sounds “right” for the era and style but it’s all soul saving and no soul

Show thread

getting grumpy in the yacht rock discord and declaring that I will subtract 25 points on the yachtski scale from all CCM tracks

been listening to more citypop to add to the @fm catalog and this is song is an absolutely shameless ripoff of Home At Last by Steely Dan (especially the beginning and end). I am actually astounded Becker and Fagen don't get songwriting credits. I think if DF heard this there'd be a court case youtube.com/watch?v=s8FcDA-6ts

my friends on the yacht rock discord brought this song to my attention which is a song that is only ever heard diagetically in the kevin costner vehicle No Way Out and was never released, it is too late to be yacht rock, the production and instrumentation are all wrong, but the song ITSELF is undoubtedly and extremely yachty and i am working myself up to recording my own cover that restores its rightful vibes youtube.com/watch?v=hf-eW_5_Q_
