It's still really bright out, yet it's already time for our 7PM interlude of lovely Monica tunes. Ahh.

Of course, I can't help but wonder when the Carol Williams shoe will drop. Later, during the disco part of our evening, I'm guessing.

this music reminds me of a stripper in a skating rink
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:40pm G:

too bad someone else had the DJ handle "small change" first :-P
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:42pm chris a:

My dad often took me to work with him on Saturdays, too. No Cadillac, just a Volvo wagon. But his work couldn't have been cooler: he was an art director and had an awesome design studio that I often got to play in on weekends. Great memories.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:42pm dale:

my father had a heart attack his last day of work before he retired and was gone a few days later. life can be a bitch.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:43pm glenn:

my ex wife reminds me of a stripper in a skating rink. (probably because she was, at least when we went skating).
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:43pm Don F (trip dub):

First venture into retail ay? I was a mule for my dads precious stones - brought them from the city to our house in Queens in a pouch round my neck - pouch outta sight under my tee (took the subway alone). Didn't have the luxury of an armed guard.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:44pm texas scott:

i miss my daddy.
he passed 4 years ago.
the grief comes and goes but i still smile when i see his photo on the fridge.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:45pm Julian Lennon:

My dad idolized some bint he pulled at a gallery and treated me like trite McCartney riff!
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:45pm sugarwolf:

hugs to texas scott.

My dad died 25 years ago & I still feel sad sometimes
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:48pm tom:

My father was an engineer for GE Photo Lamp Division. His specialties were projector lamps and flash cubes (remember those?). He made me go to work with him many weekends were I would be freaked out by the test labs where hundreds of phantom projectors gave eternal slide shows with no one watching and thousands of cameras automatically snapped photos of each other, over and over again. This apparently went on 24 hours a day to test the endurance of the products. I still have nightmares of rooms with flashing lights endlessly blazing away.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:48pm G:

@Julian: It's much too late for goodbye...
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:48pm Cb1:

Mo, yeah! You are coming in loud and clear.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:49pm Andy Warhol:

I'd love to see the footage Tom.
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:50pm G:

My father's had prostate cancer (metastatic) for over 20 years. It'll get him in the next few years, but everyone (including him) has had some time to transition to what will come later...
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:51pm Windy City:

You did your papa proud !
Your show is always amazing !

  Sun. 6/17/12 7:55pm sugarwolf:

tom: We had Christmas tree ornaments made from old flash cubes!
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:56pm sugarwolf:

My dad was a photographer and had a studio in the city. His building used to have a Chemical Bank on the ground floor, now it's a Kate Spade.

sugarwolf, bet you've got some pretty pics to prove it too, girl....
  Sun. 6/17/12 7:59pm glenn:

chemical bank? what's the exchange rate between Mn and Se?
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:00pm dale:

my dad was uaw. i went to his stamping plant to clean out his locker and finally understood why he was practically. it was like a factory out of a dickens novel. weird feeling going through his things. when i go you have permission to just torch my belongings - and don't get nosy!
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:00pm dale:

....practically DEAF.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:01pm sugarwolf:

Monica, I had the nicest baby picture in my high school yearbook, I must say.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:02pm Flathead Fred:

GERBER baby good,i'm sure
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:09pm chris a:

omg. My parents had Allan Sherman records too, which I loved to listen to as a kid.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:10pm dale:

i remember going to the laundramat with my mother. if i sat down and kept quiet she might give me a dime for the pop machine. she freaked out when the town went from diagonal parking to parallel parking and she bought a washing machine.

Everyday is Extortionists' Day!!
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:11pm Don F (trip dub):

Love Fat Buoys/Disco 3. Oh no - The My Zelda guy. Yeah, Mo. Thanks for remembering. 'The Service heard round the world'. I'm trying to coral some support to nominate for next Hall of Fame Library of Congress audio installment (next April folks).
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:14pm Jeff:

My Son, the Folk Singer!

Okay, Harvey & Sheila isn't from that album, but that's the album I played endlessly (despite not completely understanding many of the jokes 'til decades later). And Allan Sherman's voice and style are unmistakable.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:18pm chris a:

Jeff, we had that album too. And I played it endlessly too. Not understanding a lot of the jokes until years later. We could probably have a lot of laughs recounting the songs...
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:19pm Doug S.:

A gold Cadillac, huh, Monica?! Diamond in the back? Sunroof top? Digging the scene with the gangster lean?
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:19pm chris a:

Wow, love this song from Lisette. In the context of 'FMU, it's a guilty pleasure. But I'll own it, I still love it.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:20pm sugarwolf:

  Sun. 6/17/12 8:25pm Jeff:

So, my dad - he was that guy who left the house every morning in his suit with his briefcase and of course the proper fedora - because Men Wear Hats. And when everyone wears a suit and a hat, much can be said with tiny details - the fabric of the suit, maybe a wild-colored lining hidden inside a jacket, a wearing the hat at a subtly jaunty angle (but never Sinatra-rakish; that wouldn't do in business). Maybe a little fluffy feather (in a color which doesn't stand out too garishly) sewn into the hatband.

One particular black-and-white photo of Jon Hamm in his full-on Don Draper drag, featured I think on the menu page of the 4th season Blu-rays of Mad Men, really grabbed my eye because of how much it reminded me of Dad back in the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/17/12 8:29pm monica:

lovely memory, jeff. he sounds super dapper quite particular about the deets.

Elephant in the Room - no laser remedies back then. but yeah, hard to miss.... Extortionist - yes, but don't rough him up too bad.
  Sun. 6/17/12 8:46pm Don F (trip dub):

Re: Rockers Revenge - I'm so feelin' Mr. Magic, Mo. Thx for playin. To those avid Monica listeners interested in nominating my dad's liturgical audio segment (google 'Jewish Service Heard Around the World') to the Libary see this story. It would be cool to see his name with Donna Summer and Grateful Dead.
