I used to have a couple of Peanuts albums. Can't find them now. Rats!

I can make several dozen Peanuts MP3s happen for you, if you like, Peter :)

I'm guessing The Peanuts is not the same group that includes Snoopy and Woodstock? ;)

I'll find you a pic of The Peanuts in a bit, Kelley!

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

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

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

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

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

haha, i see that just came up. they are also in ghidorah, the three headed monster

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

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'

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

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

Good Evening Gary and Kelley, and all the rest of the faithful Bodega Pop listeners!

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

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

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

It would be shamefully appreciated.

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

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

Piano – Yosuke Yamashita; Trumpet – Toshinori Kondo

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.

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

LOL, no hot legs ... but a few other things we'll hear a bit later :)

And now we have The Ballad Of John And Yoko!

"Maboroshi no Onna-tachi" roughly translates, "Don't bogart that joint."

Have a great night, Kelley!

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

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

@David ooh yeah, what's that about?

It's a show from Austin, Texas.. check it out tomorrow. Also a Japanese show late Saturdays

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.

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

For you, Peter, I will squeeze somethin in ... lemme go dig around

Dean- How roughly?!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm

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.

Does 'maru' mean something like 'edition' or 'issue'? I've seen it used in catalogue numbers.

Are y'all okay going over about 3 minutes?

I would *love* to hear her sing Jerome Kern. (Tip: Kiri Te Kanawa's Kern disk is gorgeous.)
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. -__-
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.

There is simply no one with a voice Mako's....

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

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

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

well, "asahi" is a VERY rough translation!

House of the Rising Sun? Really?

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!
