Peter! I can hardly wait to hear your Rats show!
Avatar 7:19pm Peter Nelson:

I used to have a couple of Peanuts albums. Can't find them now. Rats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Gary:

I can make several dozen Peanuts MP3s happen for you, if you like, Peter :)
Avatar 7:20pm ndbob:

I love rats actually:)
Avatar 7:23pm Peter Nelson:

Oooh Gary...I'll email you about that.
  7:26pm Kelley J.:

Good evening everyone! Hey there, Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm listener james from westwood:

Hells yes to these tracks thus far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Gary:

  7:29pm Kelley J.:

I'm guessing The Peanuts is not the same group that includes Snoopy and Woodstock? ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Gary:

I'll find you a pic of The Peanuts in a bit, Kelley!
  7:36pm Kelley J.:

The Peanuts again: www.songsouponsea.com...
  7:57pm Kelley J.:

I wonder where they got their name? Or why they chose that name?
Avatar 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent show Gary - catch the rest on the archive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Gary:

Night, Bob! Kelley, if I'm not mistaken, The Peanuts are the women who sing the Mothra song in Gozilla vs Mothra
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Gary:

Also: They're twins, so maybe that is why they are The Peanuts (two peanuts in a pod usually)?
Avatar 8:01pm hyde:

unsurprisingly, i first saw the Peanuts in Mothra on the Creature Double Feature
Avatar 8:02pm hyde:

haha, i see that just came up. they are also in ghidorah, the three headed monster
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Gary:

Howdy, Hyde!

Barclay James Harvest XII has concluded. My attention is now directed bodega-ward.

Hey there, Dean!
Avatar 8:15pm Peter Nelson:

Nice tune.
Avatar 8:15pm northguineahills:

Good evening tunes!
  8:15pm Dean:

She covering a Faces' tune?
Avatar 8:16pm Peter Nelson:

b.t.w. Dean, did you get the Yes OK?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Gary:

Dean, she does a ghastly thrilling version of Gasoline Alley
Avatar 8:17pm Peter Nelson:

I thought it sounded a bit like'I Shall Be Released'
  8:18pm Dean:

Peter: The Yes? No. Not yet, but that's because I'm undecided about where to host it. But I am reading Bill Bruford's auto-bio.

Gary: Say, what?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Gary:

Yes, I think Peter you're right ... I should see if I can figure out which track it is on Discogs and then do a Google translation
  8:20pm Jill B.:

Good Evening Gary and Kelley, and all the rest of the faithful Bodega Pop listeners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

Song means Yuunagi's Time ... so, not sure ... hmm ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gary:

Hi Mom!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gary:

Oh, it looks like I might have to play the gasoline alley cover ... hmm ... lemme see how I can squeeze it in ... :)
  8:25pm Dean:

It would be shamefully appreciated.

Who here is playing "piano" (that's Japanese for "piano") and trumpet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Gary:

Lemme look that up, Dean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gary:

Piano – Yosuke Yamashita; Trumpet – Toshinori Kondo
  8:32pm Dean:

This is simply priceless. I was across the room from my source, a Chromebook, and I tell you, the guitar intro sounded like a shamisen.

Toshinori Kondo, well there you go. I remember hearing him live with Brotzmann's Tentet long ago. I was fixated on his posture and the weird emanations from the electronic doo-dads he'd affixed to his horn.
  8:33pm Dean:

I'm guessing she doesn't cover "Hot Legs"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Gary:

LOL, no hot legs ... but a few other things we'll hear a bit later :)
Avatar 8:37pm Peter Nelson:

And now we have The Ballad Of John And Yoko!
  8:40pm Dean:

"Maboroshi no Onna-tachi" roughly translates, "Don't bogart that joint."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm listener james from westwood:

Do not attack the DJ, kitty!
  8:44pm Kelley J.:

Lost contact for a bit there with connectivity issues! Now I have to run. Enjoyed the show, Gary! Keep up the awesome music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gary:

Have a great night, Kelley!
  8:57pm David:

Great show! For more Japanese oldies listen to KVRX Austin Thursday nights (9 or 10pm)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Gary:

Thanks for the tip, David -- they play Japanese oldies every week at that time?
Avatar 8:59pm hyde:

@David ooh yeah, what's that about?
  9:10pm David:

It's a show from Austin, Texas.. check it out tomorrow. Also a Japanese show late Saturdays
  9:10pm Dean:

Sounds terrific, David!
Avatar 9:21pm Peter Nelson:

Talking of Peanuts....well, 2 hours ago:)...I played Petite Fleur on my very first radio show. They did great covers. I'd love to hear more Peanuts tonight.
  9:22pm Dean:

ZZ Top? "Kage O Shitaite" translates roughly as, "La Grange."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Gary:

For you, Peter, I will squeeze somethin in ... lemme go dig around
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm coelacanth:

Dean- How roughly?!
  9:24pm Dean:

coelacanth: Give or take, more or less, approximately, quite roughly.

Good evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Īke:

Good evening! I started a new job today. Unlike my last place, there are actual humans there. Lots of them. I hope I can keep this job, but if they discover that I'm actually a cat disguised as a human, I might get kicked out of there. I'm going to have to hide my office litter box REALLY well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Gary:

Mike and Ike!
Avatar 9:36pm Peter Nelson:

Does 'maru' mean something like 'edition' or 'issue'? I've seen it used in catalogue numbers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm coelacanth:

can you Really (<italics) hide a litterbox?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Gary:

Yamashita Yosuke on piano there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Gary:

Sounds legit, Peter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm coelacanth:

i knew i knew this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Gary:

Are y'all okay going over about 3 minutes?
  9:52pm Dean:

I would *love* to hear her sing Jerome Kern. (Tip: Kiri Te Kanawa's Kern disk is gorgeous.)
  9:52pm Dave in Cleveland:

Hey, ido you know if this program is available in pod form on TuneIn app? This 7-10pm is a bad time for me. -__-
  9:53pm Jill B.:

Gary, your great Uncle Charlie used to paly this on his piano in his house in Daly City. The music would drift up to the main floor through the heater floor vents. Every time I hear this it reminds me of time spent with him.
  9:54pm Dick:

There is simply no one with a voice Mako's....
  9:54pm Dean:

Hey, nice unintended tribute to Alan Toussaint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Gary:

Dave in Cleveland, if you download the WFMU app you can store shows on your ipod! Or you can always listen in the archives -- mine usually go up about an hour or two after the show is over. Other shows vary, but all go up into archives and all are available via the app (where they can be saved and listened to whenever u like)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Gary:

Did I ever meet Charlie, Mom? I feel like i might have
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm coelacanth:

well, "asahi" is a VERY rough translation!
  9:59pm Dean:

House of the Rising Sun? Really?
Avatar 10:00pm Peter Nelson:

Lovely version
  10:00pm Dean:

Asahi. "House of the Happy Hour."
Avatar 10:01pm Peter Nelson:

I wonder if she knew what the song is about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Gary:

House of the Rising Sun from the Land of the Rising Sun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Gary:

I would bet she did
Avatar 10:02pm northguineahills:

Wow, it's already 10! Thanks a lot Gary!
  10:03pm Jill B.:

No, you never did. He passed away right about the tine that Auntie Rita did. By then they had been divorced for a few years. He was a dear, dear man. He taught me how to swim in the Stanislaus river at Big Trees State Park!
Avatar 10:03pm Peter Nelson:

This is now my favourite version. Terrific final tune Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm coelacanth:

Thanks Gary!
ciao peeps.
  10:05pm Dean:

Killer program. Thank you.
