Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Rob Kopp:

@Stanley. That's a long time ago. They already started in 1961 as Golden Earrings and dropped the s in 1969. So they have existed 60 years!

@Sheila: Have you ever thought bought following the Ray Davies songwriting course? I guess he's still doing that every year for the Arvon Foundation. He surely is one of the best songwriters I know. You (and 15 other students) spent 5 days with him. You have to write (and perform) 2 songs a day. On Friday you all have to write a musical with 32 songs (in one day! It sounds horrible, but each one has wo write 2 songs, so the same number as the previous days). This has been one of the greatest experiences in my life.

Scorpio is the Fixed Water Sign. (Cancer is the Cardinal Water Sign & Pisces the Mutable Water Sign.)
Bjork also has the mid-1960s Uranus-Pluto Conjunciton in Virgo prominently on her Midheaven - the toppermost & most public oriented part of the Chart - correlating to her standing as the major PostModern Popster she is...

@diciassette: I use white noise from my laptop w/ my earbuds in, but, I'm a light sleeper. W/o my earbuds, I'll wake up if I hear a roach scurrying. you'd think my hearing damage over the years would prevent the acuity of my ears.

Avatar 5:26pm northguineahills:

@DjLorraine: it was ongoing from midnight until 5pm. I mean, even in my youthier days (I was 19), I think the latest I stayed up was 2pm, and it was at a warehouse party.

My band once played a 24 hour concert at an art gallery back in 2013, but, members of the band took naps here and there while everyone else played.

I was listening to a lot of "La Pat" last week. Rob Kopp, did you know her? (so sad about Golden Earring guy. . .)

I blame sheilab and my love of Korean cinema for my burgeoning love of K-pop (growing up w/ J-pop also probably helps).

I watched exactly one video to see what BTS were all about. Now I know all 23 members of NCT, and have accepted Taemin from SHINee as my short-term personal savior.

These "Snow Queen" lyrics are so strange and otherworldly. Gerry Goffin + Carole King.

Going down to have a drink with my beautiful wife. Will put the radio on, but no comment anymore. Thanks for today Sheila. Hear you in 2 weeks and see all listeners next week with Monica. Bye.

I can't believe I didn't know about this record until recently. Listen to this production!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Handy Haversack:

OK, we think we have a plan! We're also cataloguing the CDs so as to get them in wallets. It's big changes round the old Haversackerai!

Have good weeks, Rob Kopp!

Yes! One of my favorite albums of the 90s, every track is distinctive and great. I haven't heard it in awhile, thanks for the reminder, Sheila.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Handy Haversack:

There are weird threads of nostalgia attaching me to them, Sheila! As necessary as it all is. They just somehow "mean" the music in my brain, that useless appendage.

Kate wants to know how many CDs you had! What was your wallet strategy? Related: does your car have a CD player? Some great times this pandemic summer when we were driving around listening to new Bandcamp Friday CDs.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:39pm diciassette:

I love CD inserts, but I hate jewel boxes. Fortunately, fresh jewel boxes are a dime dozen. I scooped up 3 Gnegby shelves on craigslist and that is my current sitch
Avatar 5:40pm Cecile:

hey, sheila, have you heard of an Aussie band from the 80s called the Lighthouse Keepers?
Avatar 5:40pm Cecile:

I think they might be in your wheelhouse.

More Japanese songs about rain!
  5:44pm Rick A:

Our car has a CD player. However, it's hard to rent cars with CD players. I used to curate our trips in rental cars by packing CDS in my WFMU CD carrier to play for certain parts of the drive. Those days are over now, sadly.
  5:44pm Vanessa Tara:

canadian singer, i think
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DjLorraine:

I was looking up sappon. Some how i was on a site with traditional japanese colors for art and clothing. The colors made me think of this show. Thanks Sheila and Joe
Avatar 5:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

CD 'jewel cases' - major design fail.
  5:46pm Miss G:

The only time I was able to visit Japan was in the rainy season, thus, affordable for us. Wow. They were not kidding. (Even though we took two semesters of Japanese lanuguage lessons, we could not decipher menus, and so only ate crackers many days.)
  5:47pm Rick A:

A few years back, the Times did a story on the popularity of CDs in Japan. I think one of the last Tower Records exists in Tokyo.

  5:54pm Jett:

As another great session of music with you @djsheilab comes to an end, I thank you for your precious gift. It's going to be very rough not hearing you for two weeks but I'll have to make due. I hope you will use your off time to something pleasurable and constructive. I wish you all the best. Stay safe and well, and take care of my buddy Alvy. ❤️
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Handy Haversack:

Excited for Monica, but we'll miss you next week, Sheila. The Valentine show last year with Habibi was so wonderful. Kate and I really treasure the memory. The next day she flew to Seattle to see her folks (and I saw Habibi in Brooklyn), and then when she came back, well, you know, everything went a little hinky.

But during your show, you played Kate's request, and we had drinks and loved the winter sunlight together and loved your tunes and just hanging out with you and everyone. We really treasure it still.

So happy Valentines Day or secular equivalent thereof from me and Kate -- to Sheila and to all you Friday Friends!
Avatar 5:54pm northguineahills:

@Miss G: It's always rainy season in Japan. It's like Seattle but w/ heavier rain. There's a short time Feb-March, where you might get a week here or there w/o rain, but otherwise, it's usually overcast, outside the odd sunny day.
  5:55pm CB:

St. Eulalia is the patron saint of Barcelona. In case that adds an extra layer of poetry to the poetry already pulsing through this song. And Sheila, thank you for all you do.
Avatar 5:55pm northguineahills:

merci beaucoup, sheilab!
  5:55pm Miss G:

NGH, oh, I didn't know! I think it was July when we went? It was _so humid_ that we indeed drink beers from the vending stations on the train platform at 10 AM.
Avatar 5:55pm Cecile:

It rained and then snowed here. That's always terrifying. One of the few good things about Covid is that I don't have to go out in that kind of weather.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 5:57pm ncjay:

allow me to chime in with thanks for today's show, Sheila - see you in two weeks. Monica: looking forward to next week!

@Miss G: I lived 50km SW of Yokohama, yeah, summers are almost FL humid there. When it wasn't raining, us kids would go out and play like it was no one's business.
  5:57pm Miss G:

Thank you for a great show Sheila B, I look forward to listening to the parts I missed! Thank you Skeleton Crew and thank you board peeps for interesting info! Sheila B, I just now was able to read your email, and I smell a memoir!!! Please do! (Handy, thank you for saying your memories of last year. This winter is a slog, and it's good to remember other times.)
