@Robin It's fine, that's just a heads up in case others see the same thing happening on this and the other streams . I have nothing to do with WFMU infrastructure these days!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm paddy in matawan:

Okay. Definitely not supposed to be there. When the weird sound continues to next song, it ain't the eclectic music causing it. That would be an extremely rara coincidence.

We were gonna fix some pretty obvious problems in our kitchen and our bathroom has been duct taped cardboard over a problematic wood floor for way too long.

But of course as soon as we’re ready to do the work and finally could do it, lumber and many other materials cost four times what they cost a year ago so, since we waited this long why not wait another year?

  4:08pm PJ:

@Hughie: I also like enjoy the complexity of Bacharach's chord voicings, which is not such an easy thing to pull off in pop music the way he does. I would love to talk to Burt, he's had such an incredible career - going from being Marlene Dietrich's pianist to his collaboration with Hal David, Broadway and film work, marriage to Angie Dickinson, etc.

@Carmichael, he liked it. I asked him:
So you weren't too impressed when the L.A. band Love covered “My Little Red Book” in 1966 in rough-and-ready garage style?

I was happy it became a hit. It was very different. I mean, they changed a lot of stuff on me. But I made the original record with Manfred Mann, with the right chords, though they were hard chords for a rock ’n’ roll band to learn. They had a problem with me, though, just because those chords were not in the rock ’n’ roll vocabulary.
Avatar 4:11pm Monica:

ヱkョ - yes, it all pretty much leads back to same distributor:) hi, Mark R.!

  4:29pm Listener Robert:

Re the turkey, Ken was all like, "Wait, wouldn't Super Fresh imply he was for eating?", which the object was to avoid. Andy: "Oh, Ken, don't you know how the kids talk these days? Super Fresh just means he's super fresh." At least that was the slang back in the 20th Century.
  4:33pm Mark R:

If you were to have a weekly show, Monica, I wouldn't object. Don't ask me who I'd kick off to make room for you, though. That wouldn't be nice. I'm trying to be more nice. Except to Nazis. Fuck them.
  4:33pm hoeg:

Speaking of back in the 20th C., I remember turkey used to be a little cheaper than chicken, but that reversed later. Maybe that relationship will reverse again under current conditions.

There is a current shortage of raw materials for some of the thermal transfer film we use at my job, but that only affects label converters.

I'm glad you let this version of "I Wanna Be Sedated" play once in its entirety before you started talking. It's AMAZING!!! Monica, I love your flat a's so much, it makes me homesick for the Midwest. Yes, for my part, I've kind of been enjoying the isolation of the pandemic.

I am always well aware of my place in the rankings. I went to a picnic in Central Park with vaccinated colleagues on Friday, and pretty much everyone's first lines were, "But where's Kate? And where's Bagpipe? Oh, it's also good to see *you*, [Handy]"!

Hey, sphere! Yes, indeed, he is a dog-sized dog who has lately really been filling out his bingo card in meeting WFMU DJs and luminaries. A catahoula/pit bull mix -- if you do a Responsible Image Search for such, you will see dogs that look a lot like him! Though he is particularly charismatic and ridiculous.

luka, the shop across the way looked it like it was getting set to go back to normal protocols when I walked by today.

OK, I have to go to the corner for jalapeños and scallions. Back in a sec.

can totally relate -- looking forward to when i can go to the little threading place on Washington Street (only have first vax shot right now) -- in the meantime i am kinda grateful for how masks *also* cover up weird facial hair

More than once as a kid in Houston, I remember walking across a field during the summer and thinking "I don't know if I will make it to the other side." That is what Houston humidity is like.

You're really laying down some tasty grooves today, Monica? Do you ever DJ in clubs or anything? Because you'd get people moving with this shit.

My coworker told me about an acquaintance of hers whose son traveled to Vegas with a group weeks ago and everyone got Covid. Some were fully vaccinated, but probably not following mask protocol. Had to be a variant.
