Good evening Sheila, good evening everyone. Pygmalion is such a great record. By far the best Slowdive LP. I think I read recently how much Alan McGee regrets dumping them and admits what a great record this is. *INTERRUPTS SELF* Jenny HVAL!!!

The thing about this weather in NYC right now is all the pizza crusts feel soggy and all the food from food trucks feel sweaty. I’m just going to eat savory ice cream for the next few weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/29/16 3:37pm JtotheK:

@sheilaB - per our discussion last week, at area shop I did not find a bronzettes 'hot spot' on parkway. and i learned that i missed out on vickie baines 'country girl' on parkway, and probably passed it in bins without realizing. ugh. i'm convincing myself it would've been out of my budget.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/29/16 3:39pm JtotheK:

but i /did/ find a Neil Sedaka "Too Late" 45 (for 50 cents!) which was quite rewarding.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/29/16 3:40pm Adrian in London:

@SHeila Listening to this set, and knowing how giddy you get, it's barely credible to recall you started your WFMU tenure by playing three weeks of despairingly desolate sad music. However did you cope?!

Weird. It signed me in as Joanne Stato" but I am really "statoj"!!!

and also on the 'pop' discussion - there's a book about northern soul records, and they are broken down into a few sub-categories, one of which is 'pop' - and i enjoy trying to track the 'pop' northern 45s down... good stuff! (another good one is Trade Martin 'Work Song' on RCA)

Kind of funny “tits” came up since someone was ragging on “Doo Rag” on Bryce’s list and that reminded me of Bob Log III and his minor indie hit, “Clap Your Tits.”

Hi JakeGould. I'm almost always listening when not at work but not always commenting. But sometimes I just have to hit the keyboard to congratulate the choice of record. FF's Cat is very close to my heart, a true friend when I was growing up in the seventies.

@P-90: Seconding Michael's message. WFMU has gotten me through similar scrapes.

Likewise, @P-90, I've been there. One source of slight consolation for me has been the ability to communicate almost directly with the family member's doctor, who is admirably responsive.

maybe it just came down to looking at a television host & guessing he might be high. if it seemed plausible, that was a cool tv host.

I dunno. Dick Cavett never seemed high, but he managed to convey coolness from time to time.

All due respect to DJ Kurt and the others before him, but WFMU has found a very good DJ for late Friday afternoons. What a party it is here each week, Sheila. You rock like rock!

My favorite Mike Douglas was when Grace Slick assured him with a straight face they never performed while high. :)

@Linda Lee: Coulda been depression meds...?

@statoj: Maybe it was Grace's good faith recollection?

Dick Calvert never needed no stinkin' drugs. He was just a bright, intelligent soul with a gift for irony.

Randy Newman immortalized him in his song, Rednecks. (Albeit in the voice of the redneck.)

maybe so Dean. there was a lot of cross-over. if the meds made you happy, that was a **good** thing.

@matsutarou. For me one of the best Japanese songs by a Japanese girl singer is Banana boat by Michiko Hamamura (1957)
  Fri. 7/29/16 5:46pm Dean:

I was joking about Grace, truly. Re: Cavett, it appears he didn't start taking medication until after his first long-run show, i.e., 1975. http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20113244,00.html

Fortunately, though, Cavett isn't a "was," he's still an "is." Still gifted, I assume, too. He likes to brag about his uncanny ability to generate anagrams on command.

This eases my mixed feelings about hearing that Bob, Luis and Gordon were laid off from Sesame Street this week.
Avatar    Fri. 7/29/16 5:49pm Linda Lee:

what's interesting at this point is the idea that a witty, intelligent, astute person couldn't have possibly gotten high because, you know, drugs are bad. :-D we're talking the 60s & early 70s yes?
  Fri. 7/29/16 5:50pm Dean:

Okay, one last riff on Cavett. A couple weeks ago I watched this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdIIkcYSqzA ...from this year, maybe? Quite enjoyable.

As an early 70s baby, I was too young to remember Dick Cavett or Andy Williams, and can only vaguely recall Flip Wilson and Merv Griffin shows. These days, I mix Andy Williams xmas album against Merzbow every yuletide. Backwards, forwards, filtered, chopped, etc..

Back in the Golden Age of late-night talk shows, Cavett was always the "thinking persons" host. His shows with long interviews with John Lennon and Yoko are highly recommended. Also his Groucho Marx and Kate Hepburn Shows

Linda Lee,
Well Cavett's affect was not that of a stoner. His timing was precise. I suppose it is possible he indulged, but his detachment was not suggestive of the door culture. But I suppose it is possibke. Pot was groovy, no argument.

St. Trinian's was based on a Ronald Searle cartoon strip from the 1940s, later made in to a series of movies in the '50s! It's a critical touchstone of British pop culture.

Hi SB, I'm listening yours in Manchester here (routed from Cologne, Paris & London). Glad to hear you'd do another despondent women song show. Arriving JFK at your showtime. Hope I'll make it. See you!
