@Brownwyn: there's not much of overlap between Bryce and Sheila listeners, it's somehow heartwarming to see you on both playlists

@Adrian: An Italian model who married a French politician who exploited racism and xenophobia will release covers of Swedish songs in English. The only part that's wrong with this is "racism and xenophobia". But she's been rich all her life, she doesn't care about such trifles.

as a female director it really pisses me off that women are seen as being authoritative, since being the boss is my major joy in life
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:38pm BronwynB:

i mean that women are NOT seen as being authoritative
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:40pm fred:

@Brownwyn: I don't think women not being seen as authoritative is the issue. Maybe more like the irrational rejection of women who dare being so?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/18/17 4:41pm Adrian in London:

This song is so lovely: I know it from the great Yo la Tengo cover (Georgia can make anything sound great – but this is fantastic)
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:42pm BronwynB:

oh yeah fred thats a good point. kind of like how no one would ever accuse hillary of not being authoritative, but people call her a bossy bitch and worse and while it wasnt the only reason she lost, it certainly didnt help.

Agh, gotta leave, but this is all so great! Will have to revisit in in the archive.

Will do @Rob! Later all!

@Sheila, I want to remind you of a beautiful record by Robin Ward, who made it big in the female vocalist world. The single is Wonderful Summer b/w Dream Boy. Produced by Perry Botkin Jr. Not sure if he wrote them. And there is a Bass fuzz tone on Wonderful Summer way in the background; a little trivia there. They sped up her voice to sound like a teenager.
Avatar Fri. 8/18/17 4:45pm djsheilab:

@Brian Cat I LOVE THAT RECORD!!! Perfect for the end of summer.
  Fri. 8/18/17 4:45pm JtotheK:

Jackie Wilson, yay! Erma Franklin sweetest feeling b/w whispers on Brunswick -- also a really solid 45.
Avatar Fri. 8/18/17 4:47pm Brian Cat:

@djsheilaB Yes it is a gem. a perfect 45.
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:48pm ncjay:

Robin Ward has another nice seasonal song with "Winter's Here" which would be really nice on a girl group christmas compilation (that's a hint!)
Avatar Fri. 8/18/17 4:49pm Brian Cat:

@ncjay, Thanks I'll look it up.

@Bronwyn: Hillary is a good example of how women can be as ruthless as men, so just get rid of stereotypes. Sadly, I don't think Bernie would have won against Trump. Selfishly, I'm just glad we got Trump-lite instead of Hitler-lite this year.

Randy Newman I think he is a love him or hate him singer. yikes... dodges objects being tossed my way.

2 other love him or hate him singers: Kevin Coyne and Peter Hammill. And I love both.

every song so far from this Alvvays album is really good!
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:55pm WO Town Wick:

Great show Sheila. I love that Darlene McRae song. First heard it when I bought a CD at a YLT Hanukkah show of songs Ira liked (they of course covered it later). Thanks for the cheery warm voice on this day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/18/17 4:55pm Itzall Ablurr:

re; love/hate Randy Newman. Perhaps. Like Dylan, Waits, Petty, The Shaggs (?) and a host of other musicians, it's the SONG not the singer. That was a beautiful song, in my opinion, and not hindered but FORMED by his admittedly "different" vocal style.
Avatar Fri. 8/18/17 4:56pm Brian Cat:

Agree, clicky star here.

Loved the old Radio Caroline jingle Perpetual Langley obviously made for Dave Lee Travis!
Avatar    Fri. 8/18/17 4:56pm WO Town Wick:

Not crazy about RN the vocal style but I think he is a heck of songwriter.
Avatar Fri. 8/18/17 4:57pm Brian Cat:

THe clicky star was for Alvvays. Three stars in this show.

@Eddie Caffrey I was always wondering who she was referring to! And that it was for Radio Caroline. Thanks for clearing that up.

Hi miss Sheila, my name is Kaelan and I'm from Toronto! First off, thank you for the lovely introduction to Suomi queen, Ann Christine. I can't believe that as a 20-something Finn, I've never come across her music. Kiitos!

I take it by your enthusiasm towards all things Japanese that you'd know a few great places to look for live music in Tokyo. I'm traveling there in October and would love to experience some swingin' girl pop! If you could curate a playlist with some more Japanese tracks, that would be awesome as I don't even know where to start!

My coworker Daniel introduced me to your show a few months ago and I'm hooked! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the refreshing playlist each week as it's the first thing I tune into on Monday mornings and truly the best way to start the week!
