Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

I recall when this song was a radio hit and I was about 12 wondering WTF does "I want to be your everything" mean?

Just a word to show how WFMU stands head and shoulders and every damn thing above the rest. I followed a Twitter link to the blog of a DJ for Another NYC Station and they mentioned that said station only keeps show archives up for TWO WEEKS. Compare that with some of FMU's archives now being roughly old enough to be freakin' DRAFTED. What a damn value you get for your pledge money here.

Happy birthday to you, northguineahills! I hope there's lots of cake (and cheese) involved.

Wendy, our beloved little wire-haired dox was named Misty, although she was named (by our then pre-teen daughter) for the character in the Pokemon cartoons.

Happy thanks 2 uuuuus!

Wire-haired dachshunds are historically part mini Schnauzer, so our Misty dogs probably looked somewhat alike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 1:57pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Parq, I didn't know you had a Misty dog too. Hooray for little gray doggies.

I've been thinking about Donny Hathaway for the last few days, not for any reason other than I like him, and "Right on, Maude!" is a nice thing to think about.

@Wendy: I wish you could cater my next cheese gathering. (I'm lactose intolerant, but I love good cheese)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/23/18 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

a lot of aged cheeses have no lactose!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:01pm Wendy del Formaggio:

NGH: I would gladly do it! And you know you can eat most cheeses, even if lactose-intolerant, right? I did a thing about it on Wake & Bake in the last few months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:01pm Wendy del Formaggio:

UM: ALL aged cheeses have no lactose. It's true!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:02pm Guido from Cologne:

Hello Michael & everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:03pm northguineahills:

Yeah, there are many low-lactose aged cheeses, and goat and sheep cheeses doesn't hit me as hard either. (But I don't mind suffering for that sweet, sweet cheesy goodness once or twice a week.

edit: oh, you already mentioned aged cheeses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:04pm Guido from Cologne:

In history of humanity there were cheese eaters before milk drinkers and possibly beeer drinkers before eaters of cereals.

I'll take that as a compliment, coming from a DJ after my own ears.

At last year's Cheese Society event, a Wisconsin maker won top honors. But I just can't find that damn cheese anywhere. Damn the electric fence!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:30pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian, was it Rush Creek by Uplands? It may not be the electric fence. That cheese has always been in very limited supply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:34pm Bill Mac:

No worries Mike. It's all about the music... AND the cheese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/23/18 2:35pm Uncle Michael:

I play a lot of cheese. Read my playlist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:35pm βrian:

Little Mountain Cheese by Roelli. Alpine cheeses are not something I usually seek out, but apparently this one is really nice. Love the Uplands products, too. I can usually find them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:35pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Bill, will you change your on-air name to "Bill Mac & Cheese"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:35pm Brian in UK:

Wendy, had some tasty Sardinian cheeses the other week. One a Pecorino style but not too salty. One a Reggiano style and another blue. No idea of the names as I did not buy them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:37pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Roelli! I used to love their Dunbarton Blue when I was a 'monger in Fort Greene.
Brian in UK, did you know most pecorino romano is now made in Sardinia? They have more sheep than people! Just stay away from Casu Marzu. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/23/18 2:38pm Bill Mac:

I may adjust the pseudonym to reflect that. but only if it's appropriate.
@UM Al of gotta say is Glen Campbell, Buffalo Springfield, and Wayne Smith are a pretty sharp turn - nicely done!
