Great show today, Monica - thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Handy Haversack:

Jeff Moore, just to put a period on the story: in a paroxysm of fear that I'd have to pay for that crate of Mobile Fidelity discs, I queried the Discogs vendor that had sent them. Long story short, they sent me a shipping label, I put the box back in the hall, and either USPS or a very strong thief has made off with it. I got to keep the Pretenders album for my trouble, and it's really the only one I was really interested in from the lot. I am glad to have the shelf space back and that some clerk at GoVinylGo isn't going to get in trouble over the whole thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm tim from washington:

which reminds me: one night when I lived in Bushwick (10 yrs ago) I heard a record of somebody singing Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" in Spanish, from an open window. So great. I'd love to know what that record was, it's one of the great unknowns of music for me.

RevRab: I don't think it was Sam, good guess. This seemed more like Ralfi Pagan or Joe Bataan or just something entirely new to me.

Thanks Monica for a terrific set.

I'm dropping likey-stars all over that Al Green rendition. Great set, Monica!

I do like the Righteous Bros. version of 'Unchained' /because/ of the glossy overproduction. But don't lose sleep over my opinion. Or, get a nap in.

Thx, YETI BON - my home town:)

Tim from Washington interesting and exciting. I didn't know he played with so many greats. Too bad he wasnt around folks that couldve steered him to a healthier lifestyle.

I fell in love under the spell of Mr. C's Bossa Nova Carnival on FMU that Summer.
Avatar 5:09pm charlespowne:

Hi Monica, I'll second what Nate In Detroit asked: When are you going to get a regular show again? I love your musical choices -- you've introduced me to so many excellent songs and artists. Last time was that "Gold Dust" song, which I'm *still* listening to on repeat. Thank you for doing the fill ins. Moar please!
  5:10pm lazy pierogi:

thirding that notion of a regular show - your show was my gateway show to WFMU many years ago <3
Avatar 5:13pm Monica:

Bucksomcounty - will pass that along to him!
charlespowne + lazy pierogi - no plans to return on the regular but will definitely be poppin' back in for fill-ins.

oh my goodness, this song. had such an impact on young teenage me.
  5:19pm ron-ji:

What an amazing set! Love the mix of stuff I know and love & that which is utterly new to me. I keep trying to switch to NPR, but there’s no way the news could possibly be as beautiful and inspiring as this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& were Matt5 who noted Chip Taylor wrote Angel same day after WildThing. As one would, in that order.
Like that version much.

i never heard of the 'and the turnabouts' bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Michael 98145:

This is such a great melody
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Listener Howard & the Cats:

I completely agree with CharlesPowne! (Hi Charles, I hope the Cats are well!)

Matt Fiveash - now it's official!! ron-ji - thank you!

Handy Pretenders 1979!! So good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Handy Haversack:

I have loved "Angle of the Morning" since I was a little kid. Are there any bad versions?

Hey, DjLorraine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Handy Haversack:

"Angel of the Morning," too. I love all things that belong to the morning. Except the alarm clock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Damn but this Station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Michael 98145:

{ Although credited to "Merrilee Rush and the Turnabouts", both the single and subsequent album (also called Angel of the Morning) were recorded using the same musicians who played on Elvis Presley's famous Memphis recordings. }
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Handy Haversack:

My response was delayed as I was mixing a drink. So: cheers, Monica and and Moniceers! If they could see us now!

Ohhh thank you for playing "Carnival Morning!!!" I think your old show may have introduced me to that song

Nutley Brass, hit it!

monica is the only good deejay on the station - no one else plays belle barth or rusty warren.

Well - I term Gaylord the Master Weaver.
But - he's not the only one...
  5:32pm Imgur:

What a version!!!
Avatar 5:33pm Monica:

no shortage of WFMU DJs on the mothership and the alternate streams weaving their wondrous spells week in and week out - and a hot bench of fill-ins. Shout out to Give the Drummer Radio, Rock'N'Soul Radio, and Sheena's Jungle Room!
Avatar 5:34pm Monica:

agree, imgur!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Handy Haversack:

Woop woop!

(That was me shouting out.)
Avatar 5:35pm Sem:

Lovin' the spins, Ms. M. Just the things for this time of day. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always say the DrummerStream is like a backroom with fewer people & more lived-in but puffier furniture... Somehow have made few inroads into Sheena's yet...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Mr. Pumpy:

HA! The Nutley Brass...I want mushrooms on that. I say this with pride. If only the internet existed when I was hanging with the band in the 80s.
Avatar 5:39pm HyperDose:

@RRN63 The Arbitrarium right here on Mon nights is a good place to start. That'll lube you up for Sheena's ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Mr. Pumpy:

I appreciate what they do, and hope it continues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...have heard they pretty nutty down Sheena's way, yeah...
Avatar 5:41pm Monica:

Mr. Pumpy - love The Nutley Brass!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Much appreciated, Krys O. - thanks for swingin' by!
Avatar 5:45pm Sem:

^What Krys O. said. G'night, and sweet dreams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Handy Haversack:

Rev Rab, I like to think of it as the car radio back before radio sucked, where you had several channels programmed into the clunky pushbuttons, and you'd flip around as the whim took you. Same-same now except *mostly* digital and all WFMU.

Good night, Sem!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Handy: ...me - kinda like being a gradeschool kid - & in September the few Networks we had then would come out with new Saturday Morning Cartoon / Kids Show schedules ...so I'd get out a ruler & make a graph so I'd know what to watch in each Timeslot ...transposed to marginal 21stCentury PopRawks & this braindazzling mosaic of Avant Irritainments for the Earz...
