  Fri. 2/17/17 4:03pm modchick65:

I meant to actually respond on that point, but I got pulled into a meeting. I actually prefer your fast-talking, Sheila. I've always thought FM radio was lame because all the DJs sounded like they were on Prozac or something (now I realize it was most likely pot). They all had these deep, dead-air filled voices. Just always struck me as really pretentious and lame. Part of the reason I like your show is it's not that.

Oh man that Linda Jones is such a scorcher. Over a massive soundsystem in a large hall, it's even more mindblowing. You can even hear the parts where the song breaks down where you're supposed to spin and do the acrobatics. You'd think it was tailor-made for Northern Soul.
