  7:13pm monica:

hi folks, happy mom day. yes, these are audio letters to and from ethel and her family from may 1968 while she was at a fat farm in durham, NC. found these on the street many years ago and the professor (of audio kitchen fame) cleaned 'em up.
  7:15pm Jeff M:

The saga of Ethel continues, and we get more clues about why she's away.

It's all oddly compelling, and quite the snapshot of a family and a culture and a time.
  7:17pm rachel jensen:

hey monica--whats up this week?? happy moms day this is sooo cute
  7:18pm Jeff M:

I was wondering if the Rice Diet program existed as long ago as 1968... looks as if it started in 1939, so that may be where Ethel was!

  7:20pm Dagmar:


A show any mother could love!
  7:22pm ?:

Heh. I was in Durham in the 80s and remember seeing the rice dieters who had snuck out to cheat on their diets...
  7:25pm Paul:

  8:27pm SeanG:

Hi Monica, just tuned in, cigar is lit, Chicago rules,! Anybody see the new Jarmusch?
  8:29pm tommy:

i prefer hearing wfmu on the radio more than on the internet even though i use both......what about everyone else?
  8:30pm mike tp:

whos jarmusch sean ? is it a movie
  8:32pm texas scott:

tommy...the signal unfortunately,doesn't reach texas...
i wish it did---so,we remained glued to our laptop.
  8:32pm Jeff M:

And completely off the topic of this evening's fabu music: earlier today I was chatting with Mr. Jones about how, a few weeks back, both you and Vin Scelsa had featured a Jimmy Durante song within the same week. Must've been a zeitgeist thing. And that got me to thinking about how most of the Kids Today might not immediately recognize Durante's voice, or have a notion of who he was -- which got me to musing about things like, in particular, the Ed Sullivan Show, the latter few years of which were still on while I was a nipper. And that was such an amazing, weird, wonderful bridge between the the culture of vaudeville and the stuff which was happening in the sixties.

Made me think Kids Today are the poorer for not having that background, but of course I bet that's what incipient codgers have always thought for their own reasons.
  8:33pm miketp:

monica show only show i listen live on the internet. all others on the el radio
  8:33pm tommy:

oh true that
  8:33pm SeanG:

I'm putting on my boogie shoes.. yeah, Jarmusch's new one, Limits of Control, internet only radio i wish
  8:34pm G.:

tommy -- When I'm working online, I usually keep playlist etc. in my tray, and listen via broadcast (I'm in the NYC metro area) -- which also saves FMU on bandwidth costs... But listening online is totally fine if that's what works for people, and in some situations is the only option...
  8:34pm texas scott:

l u c k y ! ! !
  8:36pm miketp:

so you was doin the momber
  8:36pm monica:

thanks so much, texas scott. i'm afraid i may have deaded the conversation with that topic! hi tommy, i HAVE to listen online cuz the recption is non-existent where i'm at.
mike tp- thanks, will do! cha-cha-cha to you too, jeff! sean g- let's here it for chi-town! you from there?
  8:37pm Matty V:

I'm dancing like a bafoon to this stuff! Thanks!
  8:43pm miketp:

glad djs freely borrow tunes from each other. the worlds a better place for it.
  8:43pm lucybluebear:

I hate to correct you cause I love the music but Durham is the home of the rice diet, not Rice University. but I digress.
  8:50pm miketp:

2 hours of bliss miss monica
  8:53pm SeanG:

hi monica, not from chicago, spent a year there and miss it like hell most days-thanks for the music
  8:57pm seang:
