  Fri. 1/4/13 10:45am Uncle Michael:

I could totally do a show of songs that were omitted from previous themes. This week's show was songs about record labels and Devo's "Be Stiff" occurred to me too late to use it.

Avatar    Fri. 1/4/13 11:37am Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of unorthodox Jewish religious headware, I have an "X" yarmulke. It was created and presented (and sold) at an installation Soho gallery (the Paula Cooper Gallery, I believe) back when Spike Lee's Malcolm X film was showing and everyone under the age of 23 was wearing "X" baseball caps. It was also a time of tension in NYC between the African American and Jewish communities after a number of high-profile incidences of violence.

@uncle michael - that made me spit out my coffee! (full disclosure actually tea, but spit it was) ;-)
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:39am Uncle Michael:

Happy to help with the expectoration, Holly.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:41am Uncle Michael:

I have a leather yarmulke that's half red, half blue, split by a white lightning bolt. Some will know the significance of this iconography.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:42am ndbob:

@Doug sounds interesting I remember the large assortment of yarmulkes in my parents house - many from bar mitzvahs and weddings of people I didn't know

I download that Mehrpouya a few years back. Just Googled around, but can't find the original source. The blog Blue Beat in My Soul posted a 7-inch, but the link is dead.

Maggie sounds quite a bit like Minnie Driver to me.

As "cool" as the X yarmulke is, the truth is, I've never taken it out of the box. Still, it was worth it just to tell the story.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:44am Holly in NC:

I adore Maggie Nichols
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:45am kat330:

Quite possibly I made that comment last time around, heh!
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:45am Uncle Michael:

I'll keep hunting for it Doug.

Subway Clerk Threatens to Kill Man Who Wanted Ketchup on His Cheesesteak
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:48am Uncle Michael:

The vendor should keep maple syrup in a red plastic squeeze bottle for such contingencies.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:50am Uncle Michael:

On the other hand, Subway as cheese steak purist is rather absurd.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:50am kat330:

Gonna say thanks Doug! and sign off early today. Noon anniversary call very important. :)

Have a great weekend y'all!

On August 17 at 10:39, you said, "I thought this was Minnie Driver before I saw the playlist entry."

So nice, you said it twice!

@ndbob - here in Durham we have our own version of the soup nazi, except he's the mediterranean deli nazi - No ketchup for you! I mean, he gets apoplectic and obscenely abusive, & literally shows people the door. In fairness - who the HELL would put ketchup on a gyro, or dolmas, or whatever?
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:53am glenn:

drummer -
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:54am Uncle Michael:

Who the hell started putting *lettuce* on gyros?
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:55am Uncle Michael:

"pulled her coattail" love it
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:55am ndbob:

@holly very true:) I had a friend in elementary school ho put ketchup on everything - even dessert sometimes

Ha! I live in the heart of Jewish Pittsburgh. Right next door to a synagogue in fact. Yesterday, I was out walking with Jessie and wearing my WFMU hoodie. A yarmulke-wearing fellow passed us and said, "It's a long way from Upsala College." Turns out he's a local rabbi and longtime JM in the AM listener.
  Fri. 1/4/13 11:58am ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
  Fri. 1/4/13 12:00pm Uncle Michael:

I concur!
  Fri. 1/4/13 12:00pm Brian in UK:

Some peebles just don't age.
  Fri. 1/4/13 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

heh, nachum's reach is long. and not just in height!
spotted a kid wearing a simpsons yarmulke at the movies once. this was near teaneck, nj, whose zipcode shows up quite often when you're doing a jm mailing at the magic factory.
many thanks for the fine retro-show, doug, and be well, all!

There are more than a few regular JM listeners who learned to love the Drummer Some!
  Fri. 1/4/13 12:02pm glenn:

goyim love the drummer!

Thank all for hanging with me. Had a gas!

Just testing something here, oh, say Doug: Have you been notified of our pledge portion by anyone at FMU?
  Fri. 1/4/13 12:29pm Doug Schulkind:

The station doesn't give any of the pledge/fulfillment into to the individual DJs (unless we ask for some specific info). Do you have a question? I'd be happy to ask Joe McGasko at the station who handles this stuff.
