Gaylord, you really ARE great!

@Ken From Hyde Park: Hi!
Avatar 5:17pm Monica:

howdy, cheri. if folks here haven't seen the youtube clip of the 1975 country music awards wherein a very intoxicated charlie rich lights fire to john denver's entertainer of the year ballot - it's a scorcher! www.youtube.com...
  5:20pm cheri:

monica, do have any idea if you will return in the fall? let's hope so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@Monica: Charlie Rich is a musical hero for many reasons, and a plain old hero for that one.
  5:24pm cheri:

what could be better than hanging out with the great Gaylord and monica this evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@cheri: Ice cream!
Avatar 5:25pm Monica:

yeah. definitely one for the ages, gaylord! our own mr. c signed charlie rich to sire and oversaw his great 1992 album Pictures And Paintings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Gaylord Fields:

@Monica: That album is one of the greatest musical final statements ever released! Mr. C and Mr. C.R. were a match made in heaven!
  5:29pm cheri:

ooohh speaking of ice cream Gaylord and monica, what's your favorite kind of ice cream? i love ben & jerrys ice cream.
Avatar 5:33pm sugarwolf:

what about hanging out with Gaylord, Monica, and ice cream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: As you know, that's been done, if you count 4-H shakes. And I definitely do.

@cheri: Too many to name.
Avatar 5:38pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

hey Gaylord! Good Sunday to you!
  5:38pm cheri:

btw Gaylord I'm really enjoying your show, sweet sounds!
Avatar 5:39pm sugarwolf:

mmmm 4-H shakes! Maybe I should get one at the Sheep and Wool Festival this fall.
  5:39pm cheri:

hyia Tania.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: Yesterday I heard from a Dutchess County denizen that the Doobie Brothers are this year's featured act. They're no Charo, even if Michael McDonald was still in the group, and the What's Happening gang were there bootlegging it.
Avatar 5:46pm sugarwolf:

No Charo, no credibility, I say
Avatar 5:48pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

Thank you, Gaylord! your show is an important part of my weekly ritual! Tonight The Mighty Manfred is our guest at the turntables so he's doing all the heavy lifting :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: As also say the only two dudebros with taste ever that we overheard when we were there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@Real Nitty Gritty Tania: We call that a win-win in the radio hosting game.
Avatar 5:49pm sugarwolf:

@GF I think they might have been a little too farmbro to be true dudebro, which makes it even better
  5:50pm cheri:

Gaylord,i bet there's not one person in the entire world who likes charo!
Avatar 5:51pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

everybody wins! yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Gaylord Fields:

@cheri: Watch your language! That might get you banned here!
Avatar 5:53pm sugarwolf:

@cheri: I can think of at least 4 people who like Charo!!
Avatar 5:54pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

J'adore Françoise Hardy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm dale:

i like charo. mike douglas liked her. she was a great flamenco guitarist
Avatar 5:56pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

I'm also in the like Charo camp. Firmly.
  5:57pm cheri:

Gaylord i'm deeply sorry, I take it back
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@dale: I've seen Charo's flamenco playing live. She's quite accomplished. Also, cuchi-cuchi!

I am emphatically pro-Charo!
Avatar 5:58pm steve:

i like Charo. also Dance A Little Bit Closer is probably one of my most common earworms
Avatar 5:58pm sugarwolf:

Yay @ all the Charo fans!!

Your denizen was right, Gaylord. The Doobies are 8/26 and The Spin Doctors are 8/28 - www.dutchessfair.com...
  6:00pm Gael Sans:

Charo is an accomplished guitar player and musician. I think many people around the world like Charo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Hugh:

Check out Calibro 35 if you haven't. Yet another European (Italian in this case) crime jazz/funk fake soundtrack outfit.
Avatar 6:02pm sugarwolf:

the price of the Spin Doctors tickets is too high
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: You mean the price of minutes of your life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Gaylord Fields:

@Hugh: I most certainly will. Thanks for the tip!
  6:04pm cheri:

i'll watch my manners from now on, Gaylord that's a promise
Avatar 6:05pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

the genre name "crime jazz" pleases me

Coochi Coochi! I love Charo!

...CrimeJazz (NoirJazz?) - kinda starts w/ Mingus ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Gaylord Fields:

@Toots: That's because you've got exquisite taste!
Avatar 6:09pm Toots:

My now grown up spawn is doing wonderfully, but hibernating from the heat of Miami. I have exquisite taste because I love YOU, Gaylord!
Avatar 6:09pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

@Gaylord: If "Gat In A Horn Case " isn't already a 60s rudeboy rocksteady number I would like to go back in time and make it so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Gaylord Fields:

Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Pat Boone actually made a couple of good ones (and that was a Gary Usher production, so no surprise on the resemblance).
  6:10pm P-90:

Charo is excellent, one of a distinguished line of fine musicians who honed their craft in the X. Cugat Orchestra. Her broken-English Mexican-Bardot "Coochie-Coochie" routine was an afterthought that was encouraged by the talk show bookers who thought it was SO cute...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Gaylord Fields:

@Toots: Oh, you!

  6:12pm cheri:

well Gaylord I have to check out now, but thanks for your kindness and understanding. see you next week I hope!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@cheri: Charo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@Real Nitty Gritty Tania: You just might have to do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Hugh:

Hope Cheri got her swag! Nick packed it on Thursday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Mexican Bardot' - ! A bodacious cute. Was apparent even to a kiddo she could play guitar...
@Hugh: Cheri & Cheri Pi are two distinct entities.

@Hugh @Revolution Rabbit Nov63: One contributes to WFMU fundraisers but doesn't listen to my show, and vice versa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Gaylord Fields:

But I love all my listeners.
  6:22pm P-90:

And Pat Boone did produce some real winners, when he was working more as a straight Dino-style crooner, instead of doing those much-ridiculed "sanitized" R&B/R&R covers that Little Richard still likes to bitch about about half a century later. I confess: I always liked "Love Letters in the Sand".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: "Moody River" is one that's strongly in his plus column. I think many of his non-watered-down covers are worthy pop songs. But pee-yew on his ruining so many great R&B songs.
  6:26pm JakeGould:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: Hallo.
  6:29pm sunshine:

oh! isn't this song about the soap opera from a decade (or two) ago? Xica was great!
  6:31pm sunshine:

So nice to catch your show, Gaylord, love it! listening on the internet...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@sunshine: Both the soap opera and the song are based on a real-life Brazilian woman who went from slavery to a position of nobility.
  6:34pm P-90:

OK: on your honor NOT to use a search engine, just your natural noggin-borne knowledge, this week's P-90 No-Prize goes to the first FieldsFan who can name the movie for which Pat Boone's "Love Letters in the Sand" was the theme. Care to take a swing at this one, @Jake G?
  6:35pm ?:

A painter/beatster from Lowell, Mass., named Huck, told me about Johnny Smith, summer, 1969. Thought you need to know that Gaylord. Great show.
Avatar 6:38pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

THIS IS BADASS!!! must procure Ananda Shankar's "Renunciation".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@ Real Nitty Gritty Tania: That is your assignment! Ananda ROCKS!
  6:40pm sunshine:

I saw some episodes and was hooked- the story is interesting (rags to riches- good fantasy) and the romance, and the way Xica would dance when she spoke- enchanting!
I like that you play some Brazilian music- thank you! among all the other wonderful music... enjoying...
Avatar 6:40pm Real Nitty Gritty Tania:

totally! it's almost Giallo soundtrack-like. You played Ananda last week too. It is duly noted in my acquisition list.
  6:43pm Mike Sin:

Enjoying your show after a rough day at the beach with an insane undertow. Nice to relax to your fine selections... Especially that Ananda Shankar track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Real Nitty Gritty Tania: Last week I played Anoushka Shankar, who is his niece or something. One talented family.
