Dead Can Dance! Nice transition indeed, Meghan!

"Gardens" this week? Do you have anything from Donovan's Gift From A Flower To A Garden?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:02am Chuck:

And a beautiful day for some gardening it is!
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:02am Dave B:

Nice opener. I hope you got the tracks I harvested
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:02am Meghan:

no, no one requested Donovan!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:02am Meghan:

It is Chuck! It's gorgeous out!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:05am Matt from Springfield:

Which reminds me, I really oughta harvest my parsley soon and bag it for use in cooking. It survived the winter and now is as tall as a bush!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:05am Sean B.:

It's gonna be a great day 'yall!. Good Morning.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:06am Chuck:

I will be outside chasing resin casts however. Hey, it's still OUTSIDE!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:09am Chuck:

The same with my lettuces, Matt. Salad time!

morning Daniel and RRN and Sean! This set is ridiculously me....
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:17am Daniel:

morning! I'm actually listening from Edinburgh, Scotland. It's been morning here for a while. Lovely set!
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:17am Dave B:

Knowing you, I'd say that is an accurate statement
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:17am Sean B.:

I missed the classic wake up intro, I think; Meghan?;Beautiful so far...although ;-)
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:19am Meghan:

I want to be in Edinburgh..... Seems like a perfect place to be listening to this set....
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- wull, I mean DJTroub in terms of the Garden concept...
- killer stuff!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:23am Meghan:

Oh I agree with you on that RR
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:23am Sean B.:

-galaxie-nick cave-PJ- triplet might as well be released as 1 track at this point. PJ always seems ageless to me. Great Gal.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:27am Dave B:

Or a hydroponic garden for some relaxing product!
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:28am Paul -berlin:

Tru dat on the The The! A truly great work! How about playing " The Garden" by john foxx?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:28am Dave B:

  Thu. 6/20/13 6:29am Daniel:

Check out a British band called THE DUCKWORTH LEWIS METHOD, all their songs are about cricket :D :D
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:31am Meghan:

wow, really? All songs about cricket?! That is amazing!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- In the excellent 'Botany of Desire' by the great Michael Pollan :
- he says that no plant ever has had the amount of development & cultivation as marijuana.
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:33am Daniel:

Yes! I think even the name is a cricket reference. They've just got a new one out in two weeks as well, which is called "sticky wickets" so I assume carries on the theme. (Also, they're Irish, my bad)
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:37am Dave B:

Tom Russell - "Jai Alai"


Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:40am Dave B:

dave.... you know what to do.....
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:46am Chris from Stroud:

Fan of the D/L method myself. Cricket is a great theme for the show tbh. Quite hard to do. Bit o' Roy Harper though for sure. Loving the show today Megs. Best to you x
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:46am Dave B:

shit yeah! Find some super obscure sports and the coresponding songs about them!

I wonder if there are any songs about the caber toss?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:47am Meghan:

Awww thanks Chris! Yeah, it won't be all cricket...but hopefully we can find some songs to fill those types of sports!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:48am Dave B:

and on/of the garden variety - I've always been partial to the manicured Japanese style.
  Thu. 6/20/13 6:49am Stoney:

This is so nice to wake up to after a night of sitting on a barstool @ LITM.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- exactly time for a Thundermug ☕
...the more thunderous the better...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:54am Dave B:

Kenroku-en garden in Kanazawa was amazing...

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:57am Dave B:

and if you need some inspiration for obscure sport:

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:59am Dave B:

Is "Shoot The Freak" still down at Coney? I'm not gonna make it this year, gotta help my brother this weekend.

Sadly his little Honda was lost to Sandy. Say hi to everyone for me!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 6:59am Meghan:

Hey there Stoney! Your bum tired from keeping barstools warm? Didn't know you were the official stool warmer!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:02am Dave B:

Next week:

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:03am Meghan:

awwww, that is too bad Dave. I didn't see Shoot the Freak actually....Thought I heard it, but didn't see the sign for it. There are go-karts again. Those were gone for a few years but now back, thankfully!
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:10am Elwyn:

yo greenthumbs/ brownthumbs! pass a fruit cup

Elwyn! *passes the Malteesers*
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:11am Dirty Old Man:

I can't get out of bed. When's the Metal Set coming on? Help!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:12am Meghan:

hahaha... no metal set today!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:13am Meghan:

Dave, for that site of obscure sports, well I have to disagree with one of them..... fighting robots is not a sport...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:14am Dave B:

seriously. Sports for Nerds maybe....
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:14am Meghan:

yeah, that was what I was thinking....
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:15am Elwyn:

what about robot dogs that play soccer? my faculty has a team!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:17am Dave B:

^ I rest my case ^
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:18am KP:

This song is growing on me.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:18am Meghan:

Only if the dogs are dressed in storm trooper outfits Elwyn...... (nice Dave!)

Oh damn! Ken that would have been perfect in retrospect!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:27am KP:

Does Madison Square Garden count?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:27am Meghan:

Morning KP and no worries DDV!

Chris, I put that request over to the FB page! Thanks!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:28am Dave B:

Maybe you can campaign for a summer weekend evening fill in, and take the Theme Park on the road to Coney!

Talk to the guys at Freak Bar. MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:28am KP:

Hey this is a reference to the Garden!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:31am Meghan:

Oh Dave, if I am to do it, it is only right to do it at the Freak Show! Hell, I have Donny Vomit announcing my show every week!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:34am Dave B:

"Freak" theme. A quick cursory search here pulls up 6.5 hours of songs with "freak" in the title.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:39am KP:

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida supposedly means in the Garden of Eden and would give you a 20-minute break.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:39am Dave B:

and be on the lookout for Holy Diaper this weekend!

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:42am Adrian in London:

Sport: How about something from Kraftwerk's Tour de France album, especially as the Tour starts next week?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:44am Meghan:

Oh does it? Good idea!
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:44am Paul -berlin:

Did you say "Burger Time"? I loved that game! I played it so much at one point I used to wake up with the incidental music playing in my head.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:46am ausmanx:

i would suggest a show with the theme "drunkenness". followed by a meet-up that same night (which i wouldn't be able to attend from this part of the world but i could look on enviously)
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:46am Meghan:

I did! I used to have the routes engrained in my head of how to go through each level.... Now that has gone out of my brain to be replaced with other stupid knowledge.....
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:47am Elwyn:

Do pinball wizards count as real life wizards?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...drunkeness is *always* a theme here...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 7:48am Meghan:

My annual drunkeness show is during the death show with Jeff, Jeff and Dave B!
  Thu. 6/20/13 7:51am Elwyn:

I hope some untalented people in time fora quality end of year show

I have yet to see a damn cicada! I had sculpture plans for them! Send them over to me!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:17am Phelger Nank:

Who's this? I think they're on to something. Might make it big.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:19am Phelger Nank:


I have some dead baby mice too. Will make a big care package.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:20am Cheri Pi:

Good morning!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:21am Meghan:

You know, it would actually be a welcome (and odd to other people) care package! The joys of being a sculptor. My materials are found!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:22am Chuck:

I've got bunches of cicadas here too, Meg. I'll get you some...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:24am Meghan:

How the hell did they not show up by me! I have a park as my front yard! Man....
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:25am Phelger Nank:

The trash(-I think they're all-)men keep not taking this small tree I dug up...I'll send it along...care package might be a shipping container...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:26am Meghan:

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:27am Chuck:

As with all living things they are where their food is, Meg. Guess there isn't enough in the park for a population of them to eat. Have you heard them at least? The woods are full of their noise up here...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:27am Dave B:

I dont feel like going to work. Meghan - can you write me a note to get me out of having to go in?
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:28am Chuck:

They sound reminds of flying saucers from 50s sci-fi movies. hehe....
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:29am Cheri Pi:

Damn Meghan! You did good.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:30am PKNY:

We had tons of cicadas in my section of Woodbridge NJ a few weeks ago. We still have a few here and there, but it's definitely died down a lot.

I saw some FB photos of some dude I follow who made cicada tacos. Whew, he's a better man than I am.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:31am Meghan:

I haven't heard them. I was hoping I would! It was supposed to be the great infestation! Oh well.....

Sure Dave-

Dear Employer- Please excuse this employee from work today as it is way to beautiful of a day to be stuck inside doing horribly boring things. This employee will make up for it during the winter months where the weather is miserable and it's easy to stay inside.

Thank you- Meghan McKee (radio personality)

WOW. this is badass.

I bought that album back in 1990... Harvard Square Newbury Comics.... it was fall, I got fake creepers the same day and black jeans.... God why do I remember shit like that but forget other important stuff?!

the electric garden :P
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:51am Dave B:

Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:52am Dave B:

1 cup Worcestershire sauce
60 freshly emerged 17 year cicadas
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
Salt and pepper to season flour
1 cup corn oil or slightly salted butter

Marinate cicadas, alive in a sealed container, in Worcestershire sauce for several hours.*
Dip them, in beaten egg, roll them in the seasoned flour and then gently saute them until they are golden brown.

4 main dish servings
*this step may be skipped and you may go directly to the egg step instead.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:54am Dave B:

note - you gotta get 'em when they first emerge/before their exoskeleton hardens...
  Thu. 6/20/13 8:55am Lou:

still my favorite Cure song...thanks for playing
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:56am Chuck:

I was a forgone conclusion that you'd play this, Meg...
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 8:56am Adrian in London:

Oh, I was hoping you'd play this Cure track.
