Sorry this week has been so rough. If it helps, it's tough imagining WFMU before your show made the station even more amazing than it already was. A weekly must-listen-live event.

IDK if this counts as a patter song but I'd say my favorite "too many words" type of song is La Chanson de Jacky by Jacques Brel (aka "Jackie" by everyone from Scott Walker to Marc Almond to Mike Patton).

a mall in Montgomery County also used "Life Is a Rock" for TV and radio commercials.

also Sheila, I have a 45 to recommend, Rose Valentine 'I Gotta Know Right Now' on RCA, area record store has/had it, but alas my 45 spins this year will be few and far between, so i left for someone else to procure and (hopefully) play out... and p.s. hope you feel better!
  Fri. 1/8/16 4:26pm Mark R:

Lynn Cornell's voice doesn't really sound like her, but there's something in her delivery that kind of reminds me of Shirley Bassey. (It's Shirley's birthday today, if you're interested!) Hope you're all better soon, Sheila.
  Fri. 1/8/16 4:30pm Mark R:

I know you lived in London, but did you also live in Japan for a while, Sheila? You seem to be extremely well-versed in Japanese pop! I really loved those Japanese Christmas songs you played, btw. I was going to play one of them on my Christmas Eve fill-in, but it was only on youtube and then I forgot about it, so the hell with it!
  Fri. 1/8/16 4:33pm Mark R:

Gaylord, I love Tom Lehrer and wanted to play "The Vatican Rag" on one of my fill-ins around when the Pope was in town, but the Lehrer collection in the library doesn't have that on it! :(

@djsheilab - Omg. This is painful to listen to -- she's asking him intelligent questions about his work, and he's being a lech. She probably wants to slug him.

Here's the link to the two-part series on WHER-America's first female radio station from 1955. www.openculture.com...

I hope I'm wrong and I just missed it--it's a very comprehensive collection, too--a double album. But I'm not the world's best looker and finder of things--just ask my wife. Take a look when you're in on Sunday, maybe I missed it!

Eurgh, that was creepy. Times haven't changed that much, sadly, especially if you're cricketer Chris Gayle www.theguardian.com...

@Mark R: I will. I'm incredulous.

That WHER two-parter was one of my favourite podcasts of last year! What a fantastic story, and who better than the Kitchen Sisters to tell it. Also really looking forward to reading that new biography of Sam Phillips that just came out.

Ooh, this Amason track's great, sort of Fleetwood Mac-y
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/8/16 4:44pm The Contessa:

Love this one!
  Fri. 1/8/16 4:45pm modchick65:

I like this Amason track. It has a sort of '70s AM Gold/Fleetwood Mac/winter vibe to it.

Thirding the Amason love!

By the way, did everyone see the best drummer in the world yesterday? twitter.com...

Just stop it, Sheila!!! "Big Bad World" is one of my all-time favorites!

Yes, Pastles is right ;-)

I swear this song was used in one of the advanced levels of Dance Dance Revolution.

I feel sorry for you Americans who are pretending to work while you're listening to this. *pours another glass of wine*

Much fun music. Im a sucker for slow stuff, like that niiiice "season of the witch". (And may it be the season of Bronwyn B, and good$1 finds at strand books. I got eggers, krassner, and shrigley books. All to be given away)

Lana did a signing at Rough Trade east in London last autumn and was charm itself, by all accounts
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/8/16 5:35pm Carmichael:

So really, Tracy Ulmann did a version of Life is a Rock?? I thrill and amaze when I recite that tune at parties ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/8/16 5:36pm Adrian in London:

The Contessa bought me a copy of this album but it was the wrong vinyl weight so i sent it back. I know, gift horses, mouths.
Avatar Fri. 1/8/16 5:37pm djsheilab:

You can recite that tune at parties @Carmichael? Oh my god...I wanna have that skill! I'm gonna practice!!! : )

And here all this time I thought the lyric was "Even downtown, this is scary."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/8/16 5:38pm Carmichael:

Sadly, yes. Nerdy misspent youth and a need for attention, I guess.
Avatar    Fri. 1/8/16 5:39pm herb.nyc:

At the Aimee Ted Xmas show , they did a funny version of this song. I wish I could remember it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/8/16 5:42pm common:
