games we play with XM radio, channel 44 "Fred" (Classic Alternative)

I can usually name most of the groups/songs on the "Fred" channel, but occasionally I get a stumper. Tonight's was "Is Vic There?" by Department S, who I never even heard of back then.

Tonight's "Wow, I haven't heard this song in *ages*" was "Party Weekend" by Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns, an Austin-area new wave band in the early 80s. They used to play at dances and proms in San Antonio, then had their one big hit (yes, "Party Weekend"). Joe is still around and has his own web site.
