Hello Nick Name. My wifi will hold the playlist but not the live stream :{
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am Irwin:

Where is "East Braodawy"?
Avatar 12:19am Droll:

Howdy Irwin. I kinda suspected this music would be your Bat-Signal...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am fleep:

Whooda, try lighting a candle to Saint Isidore of Seville.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am pacific standard simon:

@Irwin - follow the staggering man to your goal.
  12:33am Nick Name:

Hi deaf White cat,all good this end i just checked - sorry to hear that
  12:35am Nick Name:

@Irwin: good job Luis was in charge of the sleeve notes and not me!
  12:36am Nick Name:

Hi Droll - good to see ya again -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am pacific standard simon:

Wait, what? There's a good show following The Spazz nowadays? Curse me for a fool, not double-checking the new schedule!
Avatar 12:43am Droll:

I just come for the free food. pss said he was going to make a 'za.
Avatar 12:44am Whooda:

@fleep: I hope the Saint is comfortable with "sailor language"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am pacific standard simon:

No piz' for you, Droll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am pacific standard simon:

Hey, I boated inta Seattle today for the first time since July (aside from a airport trip in October).
Avatar 12:48am Droll:

Avast! No free food booty tonight? Aye mates, I sat through that jazz thing! And those modified piano songs! And the math rock!
Pass the grog, landlubber!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am pacific standard simon:

Pour anuvver beer in me ear, arrr!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56am pacific standard simon:

It was the annual Christmas dinner at McCormick & Schmick's -- tight shoes, no pussy, and a cold place to sleep at the bottom of Davy Jones' locker. Aaahrrrrrr.
Avatar 1:01am Droll:

pss, You boated over just to eat at McCormick & Schmick's?! Is it that good? What an odd dress code: ill-fitting shoes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am pacific standard simon:

How can I answer? I'm being amazed by awesome radio.

It's a holiday tradition. Shopping and a meal at someplace with wooden booths and upscale entrees.
Avatar 1:06am highway ham spill:

PSS you know better than to eat anything from the Pacific now going forward. Those days are over. Don't shoot me, I'm only the messenger and not prone to alarmism. China has already banned importing the big oysters from Washington for radioactive related arsenic.
Avatar 1:08am Kurt Gottschalk:

sorry i missed the lizzy but i've kinda been obsessing on this bowie song lately. glad yr on the reg sched nick!
Avatar 1:08am Droll:

I shouldn't talk -- I'd come that way to go to Sawatdy at Miller and New Brooklyn Rd. No booths, park in a gravel lot.
  1:09am pete:

what you just played was David Bowie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am pacific standard simon:

I know, I know -- had the parmesan crusted sole, but I'll die happy.
Avatar 1:10am Whooda:

It will be easy to spot you in the dark. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am pacific standard simon:

Bowie was such a card after he ditched Lou Reed and started hanging out with Iggy and a bunch of proggers.
Avatar 1:12am Bryce:

really enjoying the show, nick
Avatar 1:14am Droll:

Can't eat the seafood because it's radioactive. Can't eat the landfood because it's genetically engineered. That's why I love beer: neither animal nor vegetable. Always safe and healthier than the alternatives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am pacific standard simon:

I'm advocating the moonshine diet -- nothing but pure, un-aged corn distillery.
Avatar 1:16am Barrel Bottom:

@droll I heard you share your weakness for those dark hops and barely malt earlier today...won't be long till Monsanto has that market under their thumb as well. Drink now while the drinking is good :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am pacific standard simon:

This Williams Fairey Brass Band sounds like Moondog.
Avatar 1:20am Liquor Stchik:

@PSS North Carolina is still a viable source for the mason jar set of mash perveyors. I live in upstate NY (lived in NC six years) and ran across a guy in Albany that brings back a case of mason jars full every trip back to NC to visit his wife. He's working construction up here for the job. It's good stuff.
Avatar 1:22am Droll:

Whooda, AMEN! I tried the beer made with synthetic water from ADM and it tasted like chicken.
Avatar 1:23am Whooda:

Ha Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23am pacific standard simon:

I'd do the same. A continent away. A shame.
Avatar 1:25am Whooda:

I spent 15 lovely years in Sacramento. Lots of good Humbolt but no homegrown liquids.
Avatar 1:26am Whooda:

Correction: lots of good craft brewers in Northern CA.
Avatar 1:29am Droll:

That was some uncharacteristically spiffy bass playing by Czukay!
Avatar 1:31am Droll:

Seattle is blessed with good local beer and there's a reason we're leading the way on legal weed. Funny how food and drugs are the last things to still be regional. It took months for the cronut to get here. It wasn't even worth the wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am fleep:

If Washington oysters were actually radioactive, I'd be Doctor Manhattan by now. It sounds like China trying to boost local product.
Avatar 1:37am Droll:

fleep, Wrong conspiracy, we're still on Attack of the 50 Foot Oyster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am pacific standard simon:

When the foodie news stories about cronuts started appearing, I thought, "Oh dear, they've found a way to make Krispy Kremes seem even more trendy."
Avatar 1:39am Whooda:

This particular oyster, I forgot the name, is sold from the bay area in Seattle mostly to China. They can weigh up to 10 pounds each and they live up to 100 years.
Avatar 1:41am Droll:

Here's another China/food related story on ABC news: abcnews.go.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am pacific standard simon:

Huh. Gonna be a lot more wildcat fireworks stands on the reservation next summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am fleep:

Fifty foot oyster would need a lot of bread crumbs. Truckload of spinach, bushel or two of garlic ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am pacific standard simon:

“Our reporter is very young and sheltered.” That's what you get for blocking search engines, China!
Avatar 1:46am Bryce:

love this guardian alien — thanks!
Avatar 1:46am ground round pimp:

@PSS I'll never forget my first Krispy Kreme. It was the Deleware State Fair in 2002. It was hot and fresh and freakin' melted in my mouth. The company is headquartered (or was) in Charlotte, NC. Down there they have a neon "hot" sign in the window to let the fans know it's 'Doughnut Time!'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51am pacific standard simon:

I'm not a fan, myself. Grew up with crumby old "dunkers" -- a task which KKs are singularly unsuited for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am fleep:

40 minutes!
Avatar 1:54am Droll:

...and the sweetest album cover: www.chicagoreader.com...
I think we have a winner.
Avatar 1:56am Whooda:

Me and doughnuts go waaaay back. In a former lifetime I was a doughnut (baker?) in a little shop in my hometown.
Avatar 1:59am Whooda:

Nice album cover. Looks a lot like felt markers, some of the best mentally ill artists work is done in felt tip, nothing even comes close to the honesty of that combination.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am pacific standard simon:

I like the idea of Santa's reindeer bringing books in their mouths...
Avatar 2:01am Droll:

Dangerous Girls is not a Trifecta, it was a single, not a LP. -Irwin Chusid

Sweet Dreams...don't think about Godzilla stomping Toyko.
Avatar 2:21am Droll:

[Great! Now all I can think about is Godzilla stomping Tokyo!]
Avatar 2:23am Whooda:

I can be a real asshole sometimes :/
Avatar 2:30am imported caper:

I'm beginning to melt away like a West Coast Starfish. Time to slide down and dream about the fishes.
Avatar 2:36am Droll:

Everyone is going to bed before the big finale, and of course they're all gonna miss Stan, too!

fucking awesome show ... having a blast .... woohoo Nick!

Great show, thanks Nick!
  12:17pm Lenny:

Great selection by Sonny Rollins! You don't hear music like that these days....you know your "stuff"!
