I lived in NY for about thirty years (20 through 50 of my life approximately), living many places, in Manhattan and Staten Island and Brooklyn. Grew up in Seattle. Moved home in the last five years, for many reasons.

Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 7:54pm Gary:

There's a funny story about that, I think -- I'm convinced it's part of a British girlie magazine shoot she did around the same time to promote the album. Magazine was called Mayfair!

WFMU is almost agonizingly close to reaching our goal for the 2017 Into The Black fundraiser. Help us get there by pledging in honor of Gary's Pulitzer-worthy radio show.

Make a pledge using this link to have it credited to Bodega Pop Live: pledge.wfmu.org...

Thanks, Doug!

That reminds me: I forgot to thank people at that break -- will do so next break ...

Since our last episode, the following Super Folk pledged in support of this show, and I owe each of them a huge thanks:

Matthew in Oakland, CA, who writes "By my count, I've only missed one of your shows since you started. I savor everyone of your shows, I can't thank you enough for making me look forward to Wednesday." (!?!?)

Doris, in Droitwich, Worcestershire, United Kingdom

Alexander, Oak Park, Illinois

Deanna, Brooklyn, NY

Jason, Brooklyn, NY

Marie, Woodside, NY (Queens represent!): She writes "Love love love WFMU"

.... thank you, all!

I was reading having a drink after work, and a girl chatted me up, and was receptive to the gospel of WFMU (haven't tried to do so outside of my Brooklyn friends).
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 9:53pm still b/p:

Just went to refresh and straighten out for myself the origin of Mah Nà Mah Nà -- I get mixed up. And Wiki sez after its film soundtrack appearance and other versions, it "gained notoriety in English-speaking countries" when featured in Red Skelton sketches in '69-'70, and that -- not Muppets or anything else -- is exactly what I often associate it with...those moon creatures mucking about in the Skelton show.
Avatar Wed. 11/1/17 9:56pm Gary:

As a kid, I just assumed he was a red skeleton
