Last Night a DJ Saved My Life!

1) This song is about a girl who is heartbroken about a boy who won't take her calls. Do you screen your calls, deciding to let some go to voicemail? Or do you pick up whenever you possibly can? (We're referring to calls from people you know.) if it's someone I know, I pick up

2) When she was feeling her lowest, she heard a song on the radio that lifted her spirits. What's the last thing you heard on the radio? I was listening to the Fleetwood Mac Channel 30 on Sirius Radio--I think the last thing I heard was "Dreams"

3) This song includes the sound of squeaky wheels, indicating a sudden stop and perhaps a near-miss. Tell us about your most recent traffic mishap. uh, I caught a yellow light that turned red

4) "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life!" is featured in the 2002 video game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Do you spend much time on video games? I have not played video games beyond Atari games

5) This week's featured artist, Indeep, was a trio. We've had many groups, some duos and tons of solo artists on Saturday 9, but not many trios. Can you name another popular trio? the Supremes, the Police, Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Dixie Chicks, The Bee Gees, The Jonas Brothers, Hanson, ZZ Top, Wilson Phillips, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Nirvana, The Doors, I think CCR was a trio--but those are off the top of my head and I'm getting hazy

6) The last time Indeep performed together was in 1997, at a New Year's Eve show in Paris for French TV. Have you celebrated a holiday in another land? I celebrated Mardi Gras in Spain--they called it Carnivale and it was spectacular! I was also in Ireland for Halloween and All Saint's Day which was fun--lots of mischief on Halloween, moreso than the candy haul in the US

7) Britain's Royal Family is in the news this weekend, with attention centered on the nuptials. The Royals made news in 1982, as well. When this song was popular, Michael Fagan gained momentary fame by breaking into Buckingham Palace. He found The Royal Bedroom, where he came face-to-face with the Queen. He reports that Queen Elizabeth sleeps in a nightie that "reached down to her knees." What did you wear to bed last night?
a knee-length nightie like the Queen

8) In 1982, you could buy a loaf of white bread for 50¢. Today, the national average price for that loaf of bread is more than $2.50. When you go grocery shopping, do you comparison shop and make purchases at more than one store? Or do you prefer one-stop shopping? definitely one-stop shopping

9) Random question: What's the first famous quote that comes to your mind? "Life is uncertain, eat dessert first!" Ernestine Ulmer

Halloween in Ireland! I bet that was really cool. I think I would enjoy that.

The Doors are only a trio if you consider only the instruments and don't count Morrison. There were keyboards, guitar and drums.

But then, I didn't know Ernestine Ulmer was a writer from South Dakota. (I just googled her.)

I almost said Wilson Phillips but I am not that familiar with them. Although, I am starting to like their music more.

I like you quote... I think that I will have ice cream now instead of after supper.

Wow, you came up with a lot of trios off the top of your head. I'd add Sugarland. They were originally a trio and the other lady left (or was let go...I don't really know).
