Video Time-Warp #3: Marvelous 3 – “Freak of the Week”
Well, I had a blast reminiscing about Wheatus' "Teenage Dirtbag" and a few from Alien Ant Farm, and I wanted to make it a regular thing to dig through the archives of WRRV songs and their turn-of-the-21st-Century videos. Luckily, Travis requested a specific song and made it easy for me. Let's all say thanks to Travis.
Now this one is a band and a song that I actually met through WRRV. Not as an on-air person, or an employee of the radio station in any way, but as an 11 year-old listener. Marvelous 3 came to town to do a show at the Chance and did an in-store promotion at Media Play at the South Hills Mall (RIP). I bought a copy of the album and, as per the rules, was entitled to one (1) free WRRV shirt. In fact, I got the last one! The fact that it was an XL and I weighed 98 lbs was of no concern to me.
I have been on this station since 2010. The shirt I got at the Marvelous 3 in-store appearance in 1999 is, to this day, the only WRRV shirt I have ever owned. They are an incredibly hot commodity.
Oh, hey, speaking of that CD, look what I found:
So without further ado and reminiscence, here it is, Marvelous 3's "Freak of the Week":
And if somehow you haven’t heard a song by any of those artists, you should teach lessons in being hermit.
Well, that’s it for this week. Thanks again to Travis for the recommendation. And, as always, kids: stay off my lawn.
