  Sun. 12/2/12 7:06pm Andrew Waterloo:

  Sun. 12/2/12 7:07pm deanland:

Dexter on the tube, that is.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:07pm david:

Wow- ML Williams rocking some overdrive with that slide - pre-dating Link Wray?
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:08pm tr;sh:

The light of a dark December brightens through ear holes. Or, so I hear.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:08pm texas scott:

Just upgraded my phone and got the wfmu app.
I'm slowly crawling into the next century.

@texas scott:

After the ball was over, Bonnie took out her glass eye,
Put her false teeth in the water, hung up her wig to dry;
Placed her false arm on the table, laid her false leg on the chair;
After the party was over, Bonnie was only half there!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:18pm texas scott:

tee hee
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:20pm sweet cheri:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/2/12 7:23pm monica:

hola, miss anne! indiana dunes - haven't been there in a hot minute!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:24pm david:

agreed with listener gary - possibly the best FMU this year

thanks a mill, david!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:26pm mike:

  Sun. 12/2/12 7:26pm mike:

I see it! thanks
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:31pm deanland:

Mrs. Yankfan asks me, "Where does Monica find all this great music?" I explain that Monica has an account at the Great Music Emporium.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:35pm ken in denver:

Off to a nice start, Monica!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:35pm david:

brighter side: u cleaned up a lot of Goo from that surface, Monica :)
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:36pm Andrew Waterloo:

I found one credit that says the song features a solo by Floyd Smith, recorded March 1939

  Sun. 12/2/12 7:37pm Doug S.:

Sunday night at 9pm be gone! Why can't this show last forever, Monica?
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:37pm JTKMDNY:

Southern Comfort! First alcohol I ever got drunk on (at the ripe old age of 14)
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:37pm david:

It gets rid of excess copies of Sonic Youth "Goo" from any surface!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/2/12 7:38pm monica:

Andrew Waterloo - that must be it!! thanks mucho... david - goo be all gone.... hey there, ken from denver!... deanland - and tell Mts. Yankfan that I spend WAY too much time and $$ there....
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:39pm texas scott:

me.too JTKMDNY
first drunk with SC
I was 17
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:39pm deanland:

Sounds like Goo-B-Gone is now Goo-B-Went. Revolto-rama aromas: Liver or peas, or worse yet, liver and peas. Revolting. And most Estee Lauder products. I once hugged someone who was wearing a bunch of Estee Lauder yuk, and had to contain myself and not heave all over her.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:41pm sugarwolf:

Black Cherry Merlot Hand Sanitizer. The smell of hand sanitizer is already gross, now it also smells like cough syrup.

And all the other women at work are obsessed with it.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:42pm tr;sh:

Rotten tofu rushes ahead of my eating frequency. And laundry detergent/fabric softener baking in the dryer. Putrid exhibits A and B.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:42pm sweet cheri:

monica this may sound real crazy, but any kind of shaving cream makes me blow chunks!! so i try to avoid it.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:43pm Lucy:

I took a class field trip to a sewage treatment plant. There was a giant room with olympic swimming pool sized vats of solid sewage, dubbed "the extra credit room" cuz that's what you got for staying in there for a whole minute breathing it in. The smell was like a mix of shit and burning rubber...
The other thing i hate is the smell of Yankee Candle stores!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:44pm texas scott:

I once yakked at the smell of my aunt Geneva's pea salad, at a 4th of July picnic.
I will NEVER touch the stuff.or go near it.
But she's long gone and SOMEONE always makes it at a fam gathering.
P U !

Doug S. - ha! You best take that up withthe fine Dave Mandl!... JTKMDNY - made ya puke, huh?... deanland - oh yes - aroma overkill (especially in confined spaces like an elevator) can be suffocating. jury out on liver!.... S'Wolf - there's such a thing as Black Cherry Merlot Hand Sanitizer - feeling sick already.... tr;sh - i hear ya, lady! (you are a lady, right? if not, sorry!)... sweet cheri - chunks you say?... Lucy - oh good god. and candle stores! P.U.!... t'scott, now that's funny....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/2/12 7:50pm monica:

here's one that makes me want to vomit : car fresheners!
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:52pm Catsilk:

Checkin' in at last >> ! The leftover turkey is finally no more. Nice to be here with a big, full belly-o-thanks. Love the shoes and eyebrows.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:56pm sugarwolf:

Certain air fresheners are a bit icky. We had an apple cinnamon one at work and it just made me think "now the bathroom smells like poo muffins"
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:57pm tr;sh:

Party of drunken teens. One has puked considerably. Wafting from the kitchen is a second pizza, heavy with the same Parmesan that coats the bathroom floor. It's a wafer thin moment.

(Lady? Yes. ..more lady than lady-like.)
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:57pm G:

Done eating, so now I can type without greasing up the kb.

Gonna be honest, which is my simultaneous strong point and weak point...

Ya know those really heavily scented bathroom wipes that some people use? The ones where the scent is so strong you can't quite tell what the smell actually is, but it's really, really strong, and doesn't smell like anything you ever smelled in nature? And then when someone uses one in the bathroom, the scent wafts down the hall into nearby rooms for 5-10 minutes afterwards?

I always think to myself, "Jeez, is THAT how you want to smell down there? SRSLY?!?!?!?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/2/12 7:57pm monica:

mizz, catsilk lani!.... s'wolf, yeah, scents made to mask make things worse - let poo be poo fer chrissakes.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:58pm Doug S.:

Anyone remember WFMU's pizza-scented air fresheners? They were a premium given away during the '91 or '92 marathon.
  Sun. 12/2/12 7:59pm Listener Schned:

Amazing how masking smells turns out worse, ex. Irish Spring soap (hurl). I'd rather endure yer nasty but chemical-free pheromones!! Ups to TX Scott, pea salad as a great "radio sight gag" -ha-
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:03pm sugarwolf:

Masking scents just make the yucky smell like... yucky smell mixed with strong artificial yucky in another way smell.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:05pm herrump:

oh, oh, what is this "sedated" tinker bell stuff that's playing?
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:06pm G:

@sugarwolf: exactly. is that what they're going for? because that's what they're accomplishing, sigh
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:07pm david:

cooked lamb smells pretty bad...
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:07pm G:

monica has used this fanciful ramones cover for years, herrump...
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:09pm JustinMc:

The best is when I'm at the gym and there's the smell of sweat accompanied by overpowering cologne. Love it! Hey dude, you stink . . . don't make it worse with the cologne.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:10pm Roberto:

So-called strawberry-flavored toothpaste often used by dentists for cleanings. Double feh.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:11pm sweet cheri:

monica in my opinon the guy who invented shaving cream should've been shot right on the spot!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:11pm Chris A:

I got some charcoal-scented soap at the Brooklyn Flea today. It doesn't sound good, but it does smell good, hope it does when I use it.

G, I'm late to the party, as usual :( Wow, it's fantastic! I'd love to have it to get me through the airport rigamaroo this xmas travel season.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:13pm tr;sh:

I wonder when things tipped away from vinegar and baking soda as deodorizers? 60s? Mad Men?
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:13pm G:

I shave with soap, that keeps both the extra scent issue and the shopping issue marginally more constrained
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:13pm sweet cheri:

well on that note i have to split now so i'll see you again next week. but i"ll still listen,,night all!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/2/12 8:16pm monica:

Chris A - charcoal is a great odor eraser!.... cheri, take aim....Roberto, agree... JustinMc - oy, yes!... G - for years and years.... David - oh, lamb. i love baby lambs (alive).... herrump - it's by The Nutley Brass!.... Listener Schned - agree!...Doug S. - good god, almost forgot about that. always thought we should have done a wfmu cologne....
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:16pm G:

@herrump: No prob, it's off the Nutley Brass CD of covers of the Ramones
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:18pm Doug S.:

That's a good question for next week, Monica. Name the WFMU cologne!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:18pm david:

this fLako is fresh.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:19pm david:

  Sun. 12/2/12 8:20pm Chris A:

Monica and Doug, YES. There needs to be an FMU cologne. What a weird and wonderful idea for a marathon premium!!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:20pm G:

wow, i'm lagging bigtime here on the stream, that butter comment came about 45-60 seconds before the butter sounds :-)
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:22pm deanland:

Will "Build Me Up Buttercup" be next?
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:23pm Sebastián:

If that isn't the definition of free-form radio, I don't know what it is :)
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:25pm sweet cheri:

before i leave monica, i just want to say thnx for a terrific show and great company!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:29pm Bill from Rock Tavern:

The smell and sight of hospital food usually puts me pver the edge
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:30pm cb1:

The smeall of potpourri sends CB2 over the edge.

  Sun. 12/2/12 8:35pm herrump:

nutly brass, got it. thanks! Monica, great show! I just stumbled on it and am looking forward to future listenings :)
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:36pm G:

I had a heart operation when I was 3 and was in the hospital for a month. They fed us mashed potatoes made from flakes or something that smelled to me like some kind of metal, not potatoes or food.

The big ol' nurse felt she had to put me over her knee to show me how important it was to eat them, but I was already marching to my own drummer. :-)

For the entire rest of my childhood, my mother had to save a few boiled potatoes aside for me when she made mashed for the other kids. I would want to gag just smelling mashed potatoes too upclose.

In my twenties I forced myself to get used to them, but junky or weird smelling mashed potatoes can still get me really grossed out...
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:37pm Buster Brown:

The gif is giving me foot fetish!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:38pm sugarwolf:

This roll call reminds me of Romper Room... but it in a good way.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm Andrew Waterloo:

Romper Room
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm david:

Church of Floyd Kramer here
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm fleep:

Romper Room
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm new haven:

pernod or anything else with anise. yuck! people who hate licorice also cant stand anise.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm Buster Brown:

YEs it was Romper Room with the mirrorless mirro
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm Andrew Waterloo:

I thought it right away because that part used to scare me as a kid
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:39pm suea:

yes romper room it is.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:40pm Sebastián:

:) I can't believe I made it to the San Antonio rose list!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:40pm sugarwolf:

I never got my name mentioned on Romper Room or the Magic Garden :'(
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:40pm joe mulligan:

romper room was the kid's show where the host called out the audience kiddos
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:40pm Chop Scott:

Monica! The show was ROMPER ROOM--I remember getting a birthday shout out from her as a young lad. Always so love your program! Cheers!
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:41pm deanland:

Mrs. Yankfan says that was Romper Room in which the audience was greeted by the jovial hostess.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:45pm Andrew Waterloo:

Romper Room was a rare case of a series being franchised and syndicated, so local affiliates—Wiki: Los Angeles and New York were prime examples—could produce their own versions of the show instead of airing the national telecast. For some time local shows all over the world used the same script but with local children.
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

I guess we all had our own Romper Rooms
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:47pm Buster Brown:

Another CIA plot
  Sun. 12/2/12 8:48pm deanland:

Goofballs for the nose. Aerating nose plugs.

For riding bikes amidst traffic fumes, too.
