I have been listening to the Julie Byrne album non-stop all week. The UK vinyl sold out in no time and there's a second pressing coming. Her London show sold out before i even heard about it. *frustrated grimace*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm adrian in mpls:

@Adrian in London - Me too! I listened to the Julie Byrne album three times through this morning. I've probably listened to her in the last year more than anyone else.

not meaning to be nosy, Sheila, but did you get the nasty stomach bug that was going around here? Terrible stuff.

it's very unusual that there are two Adrians in the room, IME. It must be nice - I prick my ears up and go "what?" at the TV when I am washing the Flash, and they say the name of a character's girlfriend, Cecile.

They HAVE to be talking to me, right?

Ha, @TheContessa is clapping along in the kitchen, I'm clapping along in the living room; our laptops are slightly out of sync so it's sounding somewhat, uh, discordant…

At the moment Zig zag wanderer by Captain Beefheart is no. 1 in the monthly top 10 of Platenclub Utrecht. That's a club of 7 Dutch record collectors (6 others and me) and since about 2 months Hans owns a copy of the very rare Dutch pressing of that single.

Avatar 5:21pm Cecile:

yeah, RevRab. Like T-Bone Burnett de-fanging every roots rock group in the 80s. Except Lynne's production tended to be way more energetic and strange when it took missteps. You have to applaud the risks.

@Cecile: about T-Bone Burnett: What a coincidence. Today I heard his fabulous cover of Roky Erickson's song "Nothing in return" again for the first time in about 10 years.

Simply an observation, not a criticism: I've heard more ABBA on this station in the last year than have since the '70s.

Rob, I prefer him as an artist for sure.

All these people in London: I think I need to organise a SBB get-together.

I'm digging the Big Star vibe of this arrangement of With a Little Help

@MrPsychopath: I normally listen to moody ambient drone but for three hours on a Friday night it's pop pop pop all the way!

If you haven't pledged to Sheila B we are sending ICE agents to your residence..not the Feds ..just guys who will fill the ice trays you neglected to fill ....you will be so embarrassed ...so why not pledge and avoid that humiliation
Avatar 5:32pm The Contessa:

Half an hour to go. We can't let Sheila down listeners. Just chip in!

My goodness, what is happening in that studio?
Avatar 5:35pm The Contessa:

Everyone! Last week and this week, Sheila B has raised more than 20 thousand of your American dollars!! Pledge to get her to the total before she implodes
Avatar 5:37pm PsychopathJimFields:

Adrian in London: I had the pleasure of telling Sheila in person how much I enjoy her show earlier in the week

this isn't that filthy, it's kind of witty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Adrian in London:

Meanwhile, on Twitter I'm busy encoring witch-house artists to tune in and pledge…
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Rob Kopp:

And Mr. T wants to forbid this kind of music from Iran?

Mehrnoosh is kinda groovy. Also sounds like something that would be delicious spread on pita.

You're surely not
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Rob Kopp:

Sounds like Roadrunnner by The Modern Lovers: radio on, radio on, radio on

@Contessa I've always wanted to live in London. I'm a big Anglophile. It's hard to meet people to hang out with in NYC.
Avatar 5:58pm The Contessa:

Congratulations Sheila and Jesse! Great show, many dollars raised! Sheila you are a star! xx
