Have to chime in as well that your show has been a constant source of discovering new music, reminders of good music i forgot about, and most importantly positivity throughout. Particularly throughout the difficult pandemic times, I could make it to Friday and look forward to all the good vibes. I even had a daughter born during this period and she has listened to your voice and music many many times!

Lastly and in particular your message about creating music at any point in life has really resonated with me unexpectedly and an inspiration for me moving into the fall and the rest of life. Thanks for everything!

Phew. Saying - ok *more* than once a day right now...: Every FMU-J is a World. Wow - how true is this here ?! ...Not just an aesthetic of Pop Music that is trans-global - as well as trans-temporal. & holy stuffs - wouldn't that be enuff. It's Elvin Jones' B-Day today - & Charles Lloyd described him as both fierce & tender. That works pretty damn well here too. Your bravery & vulnerability - & bravery to be vulnerable - your intelligence & spirit & outspokenness & heart. It's a little more than the average Music Program, Yogi.

Ahoy DJ & all!!

DJ, thank you soooooooooo very much for the years of outstanding broadcasts. You are an absolute POWERHOUSE. Quality DJs create a miniature world within their words and playlists, and you, Sheila B, are among the best!

Although I moved across the country 4 years ago, I still greatly enjoy tuning in... and the days of SBB coming in on the FM dial when I was driving trucks around NYC and NJ were an absolute treasure in my ears.

This is not a sad occasion, because you have not only succeeded, you have absolutely kicked ass at what you do.

My ears salute you in the highest honor, and I thank you so much for beautifying the world over the airwaves.

You are on the same level that you see Phil Collins at. It's been a delight, DJ, and from my heart I thank you.

I think I have told you before that I was very proud of 1 song I had written in 2001 during a songwriting course with Ray Davies: Miss the kids. You can find the story behind it and the song itself on YouTube. I didn't record the song on a 4-track recorder before 2012 because a Brazilian guy wanted to cover it. I had send him the song, and about a month ago (after 10 years) he DID send me his cover. So strange that somebody else is covering your song. I hope this will happen to a lot of your songs, Sheila.

Sheila - I'm here, still stuck at work, pondering why you and this wonderful show have had such an impact on all of us. Sure, the music is absolutely wonderful, and we receive so much joy from the discovery of new music on your show. But I think what it comes down to is the connection. You connect with your listeners like no one I've ever experienced. We feel you when you're giddy, when you're down, when you're struggling, when you're discovering, when you're angry, when you're YOU. The past few years have been such a struggle for all of us, but you took us through that, connecting with the music, and YOU. I'm really feeling it today, and I will certainly miss hearing you on Friday afternoons, but I'm happy that YOU'RE happy with your decision.

One of the very few things that are less than absolutely PERFECT about the Talking Heads concert movie “Stop Making Sense” is that Adrian had just left the band, and his guitar parts were played on that tour by other musicians (including David Byrne!)

It's wonderful to hear he's still himself.

Sheila refusing to limit her last show to self imposed boundaries...so inspiring. Her featuring prog & a man does NOTHING to take away from her show...it just adds layers. Let's all read, listen, hear more from voices that are not in our collections/ circle. Let's stay growing.

Sheila, it's been an emotional, fun, and memorable experience from the beginning - I heard you earlier say that it's been a seven and one-half year run on WFMU, and coincidentally, I've been there that long, having discovered your coloration of Friday afternoons right around then. I could go on for a long time about your presentation of the wondrous music you brought to the radio, your connection with your listeners personally, and your anecdotes ranging from the many artists that you've met and worked with over the years to political issues to just simply moving to a new apartment (a few times)! But I'll just try to speak for most listeners here when I say that although saddened by your departure, I've stopped short of feeling despair. I think that most awesome people in our lives, be them teachers, parents, or coaches can lead their students/children/athletes to a point where they share such a close bond with their mentor that they may understand when that person has to move on from the comfort of whatever arrangement both parties have enjoyed to that point. I won't look forward to Friday's on WFMU anymore, and will feel an appropriate kind of morose sting that such a loss brings for some time on those afternoons, but I hope that every so often we can all share in the joys and successes of your next chapter as it's being written. Best wishes for a bright future, and thank you for all of the work you've put into the show over these past several years.
