Keep up the good work and thank you so much!

Listening from Leeds, animating clay
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 6:22am Adrian in London:

@Flaneur Which part of Portugal are you from? I visited for the first time last year and loved it.
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:23am Torbjørn:

Sure, I'll chime in on the playlist, why not ? We're receiving the internet loud and clear over here in Norway, Haugesund as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 6:23am ausmanx:

i could open a can of worms by asking whether you're listening from Yugoslav Macedonia or Greek Macedonia, Biljana? but i guess your name's a clue!
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:27am jeff:

Pedestrian Pennsylvania Poconos here. Kind of random when I listen to BoomBoom but always enjoyable
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:27am Flaneur:

I'm actually from the south but I live in Lisbon. Glad you liked it!

@Flaneur I really want to visit Lisbon. What's it like in December/January? (Apologies to everyone else while I'm doing holiday research!)
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:32am Biljana Kotevska:

Can of worms indeed ausmanx ;) Greetings from the sunny Balkans and I hope you are enjoying the show as much as I am :)
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 6:33am Guido from Cologne:

.. one moment ... this is one of the Caetano Veloso songs ... was it from the "white album" or the British immigrant LP?
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:33am Juan de Ribera:

Hi Sheila B. Greetings from Valencia, Spain. Here are 12 pm. A beautiful day with lots of sunshine and wonderful music. Thank You
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 6:37am ausmanx:

i love the political complexities of the Balkans... it may not be the current position, but until recently... "Macedonia had favored using the name "Upper Republic of Macedonia" while Greece insisted it could only approve "Republic of Upper Macedonia""
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 6:38am Adrian in London:

Ooh Catchers, love them, and The Sleeping Years too.
  Tue. 6/30/15 6:39am Flaneur:

It's ok! Not so cold as in London definitely. A bit chilly about 10 to 15 centigrade, I would say. If you're lucky lot's of sun. Not an expensive town and very warm people. "@Adrian in London

It's so hard to comment when my songs are barely 2 minutes long! Working hard here people!

@djsheilab There should have been a warning for the lactose-intolerant listeners
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:43am Guido from Cologne:

Uuuh you really Sandy Sargeant !!!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:45am Guido from Cologne:

Sandy Sarjeant was a London based GoGo-dancer.
She became famous in 60ies Germany as GoGo-Girl in legendary TV-show Beat-Club!

the single is recorded in UK but was published for the German market.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:45am Guido from Cologne:

Pretty rare single ... even over here.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:47am djsheilab:

@Guido I wish I had that pic sleeve 45, but I have to make do with my Beat Club 67 LP. Not half as fun!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:49am Guido from Cologne:

You're even lucky with the LP.
The track itself is hard to get.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 7:58am Guido from Cologne:

Pandoras!
Coooool!!!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:00am Sissophonic Cheryl:

Pandoras at Monty Hall September 13!!!!

Mince ! I missed too many sophisticated BOOM BOOM…

BOOMjour !
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:02am pierre:

@ FRed : Paris is burning I assure you
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:04am Guido from Cologne:

Sandy Sarjeant's recording has a bad sound from the very original production. (I have a digital copy.) Sounds like overdone overdubs on medicore equipment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 8:09am ausmanx:

so Sandy Sarjeant married Ian McLagan from the Small Faces and starred in the music video for Itchycoo Park. this show is an education too!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:10am Guido from Cologne:

Sandy is an icon with rubber legs.

@northguineahills Yes! Dream-pop's greatest!
  Tue. 6/30/15 8:20am Bob:

Cilla's best single. Even better than Dusty's version!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 8:21am Adrian in London:

Oh, Holocaust... there IS a difference between melancholy and full-on desperation you know!

Hey @sugarwolf! Well, you've tuned in for the best bit.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:32am djsheilab:

@Cheri Pi Me too! This song is taking me back there.

I was born and raised in Japan but my parents were American. We were outsiders there and now in America I feel like an outsider, no one understands my upbringing, I miss Japan immensely

Bonjour Cheri PI, have I never told you that you're story is close to the one of belgian writer Amélie Notomb

Gram Parsons' greatest song. This one does me in. So helpless.

One of my best friends in Japan was the daughter of a Belgian diplomat, what a coincidence!!!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:42am northguineahills:

@Cheri PI: I was 10-13 years old when I was in Japan. I spoke the language by the time I left, but I never heard it again until I moved to NYC, so I forgot most of it.

good afternoon from Tel Aviv to my expatriate friends
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 8:45am Cheri Pi:

Oh my God, Brilliant Trees?!?! Not sure I can listen to this; I'm at work and I'll just end up in a sobbing heap.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:47am djsheilab:

@Cheri Pi + @northguineahills I dedicated my life to learning Japanese for 6 years, but I think I've forgotten most of it : ( A real shame. It's the most beautiful language.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 8:47am djsheilab:

Not exactly music to encourage working, huh? Sorry @Adrian! Hopefully Trouble will revive you.
