Yo Lifers!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:04pm Linda Lee:

Happy New Year to you both!! from a former Asheville resident. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:05pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

But girls.....flat or round lollypops?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:06pm Matt ww:

Are you guys trash talking cannolis?
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:07pm Hypertoast:

I can't believe what I'm hearing about cannolis
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:08pm melinda:

I think cannolis are filled with sweetened ricotta. Yum.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:08pm Linda Lee:

yes!!! those are proper cannolis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:11pm emily:

Linda! I lived in Asheville, too! for years! How neat to meet another Ashevillian :)
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:12pm Linda Lee:

wow! when were you there emily? lovely town!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:12pm emily:

2006-2008 and 2014-2016! I just moved back to the city this past year.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:13pm Linda Lee:

do you miss it? i lived there 94 - 01 & sometimes do miss it ~ hear it's changed enormously
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:14pm dale:

lord, i went to the pyramid a lot in the 80s. saw wayne county, john sex - crazy stuff.
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:14pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Everything and anyting that's popular becomes corporatized
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:14pm Old Dave:

I'm sorry. Vince Termini in the Philly market knows what a proper cannoli is.
If you ever had one, you'd agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:15pm emily:

it has changed a LOT--even from the first time I lived there to the second (which is one of the reasons I came back here) but I do miss it a whole bunch. I had a great radio family there at ashevillefm and I miss them, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm kimzilla:

But rate them... canolli, cake, pie, ice cream and pie. 1-5. 1 being the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm kimzilla:

canollis can't be on the top 4, sorry.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm Linda Lee:

what is ashevillefm? any connection to Free Radio Asheville?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm kimzilla:

sorry, canolli, cake, ice cream, cookies, pie...
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm Linda Lee:

i could look it up, but i'd rather chat with you :-)
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:16pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

And speaking of NC--I'm from there . If I ever moved back, I'd move to Asheville
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:17pm dale:

couple of drag shows i saw in the 90s was just that - lip synching. who really cares?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Listener annie, who is on the chats in the mornings and some Drummer chats, is in Asheville.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:18pm Linda Lee:

amazing to find the asheville connection on the boards :-)
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:20pm Linda Lee:

80s east village was lovely all around. vibrant & fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:21pm emily:

I know! I was so excited to see someone else from avl on the board. Ashevillfm is also known as Asheville Free Media--103.3. It's a great freeform station owing a LOT to FMU.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:22pm Linda Lee:

emily, is that a legal statioin? FRA was pirate radio
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:22pm Linda Lee:

excellent station!
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:23pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I run into a lot of people that live, have lived or want to live in Asheville
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:23pm emily:

it is! used to be an internet station but just got on the terrestrial airwaves in 2015!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:24pm emily:

yeah, weirdly I run into a lot too! small world, considering it's such a small town...
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:24pm Linda Lee:

oh wow. there's a switch! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Went to Atlanta years ago to visit an aunt. We took a day trip to the Biltmore mansion in/near Asheville. ¯\(°_o)/¯
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:25pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

The daughter of best friend from NC is a DJ on Asheville Free Media
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:25pm Linda Lee:

hope you got to look around outside the Mansion, Ken. such a nice town
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:27pm Linda Lee:

i'll have to check out AFM! not that surprised to hear about AVL up north really. it's always been a bit of a hub!
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:28pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

The Biltmore House tour is not cheap ..but worth every penny
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:28pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

This person really has a handle on the scene
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:29pm kimzilla:

This Asheville discussion is enough for an episode!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:29pm Linda Lee:

never saw the Biltmore at all, believe it or not. & i knew 2 musicians who gigged there for the holidays
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:30pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I've done the tour twice and could do it again
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:31pm Linda Lee:

wish i still had my Free Radio Asheville cassettes, kimzilla! that was a great reflection of the AVL's leftist community when it existed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It was a lot of hours behind the wheel to get there, Linda. We headed back south after the tour. May have to take a road trip there at some point. I'm within walking distance of one of the Vanderbilt's mansions right now.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:33pm Linda Lee:

that is a long trip for sure. i'd love visiting again myself.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:34pm Linda Lee:

love his take on the art of drag.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:35pm Linda Lee:

really great photos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:37pm Old Dave:

Please don't mention the Mummers' Parade. It actually happened a few days ago... current events irrelevant on this show. Let's ignore the longest-running drag event in American history.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:38pm Linda Lee:

i don't know if famous gender-bending artists have an impact on societal norms. it's one thing to approve of a 'perfromer' at a distance, another thing to be confronted with trans individuals as individuals. trans people are no less endangered now than we've ever been.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Listener Cecile has mentioned drag shows occasionally.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:46pm Linda Lee:

it's all drag .. even when the women dress like women
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:47pm Linda Lee:

it's all performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:47pm kimzilla:

Good point Linda. Were all on some sort of stage.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:48pm Linda Lee:

of course! some is normalized, some isn't ..
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:48pm Linda Lee:

.. in terms of the dominant cultural paradigm
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:48pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Drag Queens view women as powerful so they want to be in that position......of course this isn't the only reason they do it
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:49pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

She was really interesting
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:52pm Linda Lee:

that's 'taking power'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:53pm Ike:

Cannoli is lame! It looks so alluring but that (slightly) sweet ricotta never lives up to the appearance. It never tastes like anything. Cookies destroy, demolish, and devastate cannoli!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:54pm Linda Lee:

i think a good cannoli will deliver as promised, Ike! they can be heavenly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/4/17 7:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bring the drag show to Monty Hall!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:55pm Paul D:

Definitely go to Linda Loves Bingo, it's really fun.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:55pm Linda Lee:

brilliant idea Ken. who's in charge of booking Monty Hall?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:55pm Ike:

Nah, ricotta just isn't for me, probably. I don't like it in lasagna either.

YES! Somebody bring a drag show to Monty Hall! I'd go to that!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:56pm Linda Lee:

if you don't like ricotta you won't be happy with cannoli, for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:56pm Old Dave:

Ike, don't buy cannoli at Walmart.
It is a fresh and very sweet pastry
available at Termini's Bakery in Philly.
No cheese involved...
  Wed. 1/4/17 7:57pm sugarwolf:

Omg yes to a drag show at Monty Hall.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:57pm Linda Lee:

you're convincing me to look them up online O D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:58pm Ike:

IIRC, at least a couple of FMU DJs have done marathon Hoof & Mouth finales in drag in the past.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:58pm Linda Lee:

they will deliver!!! oh gosh!
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:59pm Linda Lee:

i'd like some real drag, not one off jokes, personally
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 7:59pm Old Dave:

Vince and Barbara will not fail you, Linda. Great people.
Avatar Wed. 1/4/17 7:59pm Linda Lee:

Excellent!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/4/17 8:02pm Old Dave:

They do offer ricotta, but go with the chocolate Italian cream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 1:38pm Cecile:

I can't wait to hear this show!
I am an avid drag fan, and go out a lot in Minneapolis.
