"Are you going to spend all day on that rug? Go to the mall and get out in the conditioned air!"
Avatar 4:59pm Will from Seattle:

the shopping malls of the 80s & 90s don't really exist anymore anyway. Being a somewhat misanthropic & anti-capitalist teen without a car I didn't really go to malls much, but my teen years were only less than 10 years ago...

i love the bay city rollers version of i only wanna be with you *hides*
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Rob Kopp:

I don't dislike TD, but prefer KH. Perhaps because her songs reminds me more of the band Television?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm BronwynB:

hey jtothek!!! Brian Cat, I'm a fill-in DJ on fmu and also I comment all day long so I'm definitely a regular haha

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Adrian in London:

Nice timing to take a couple of weeks off when I go to see Yumi Zouma next week and Melanie De Biasio the week after!
Avatar 5:05pm Christine:

I have never forgotten how much it did NOT work on me when grown-ups would try to school me on 'real' music, so I try to never do that to young people! I found my own way to better music eventually.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Rob Kopp:

Are there 2 versions by La Lupe, Sheila? I thought my version was from '68, but I can be wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Adrian in London:

@djsheilab I'll sort you out. I'm too busy clicky-starring La Lupe right now!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm JtotheK:

@Rob Kopp - yep, La Lupe had 2 'Fever' 45s.

Avatar 5:34pm Brian Cat:

The Twist was so huge, there was a commercial on TV with Chubby teaching the Twist. I was, like 6. People have forgotten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Cliff back in the U.S.S.A.:

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Rob Kopp:

Another great voice in Julie London style: April Stevens in America's weather girl. Parts of it can be heard in the Crayons to Perfume show "Climatic cuties" of last Wednesday wfmu.org...
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Carmichael:

My youngest niece will be having a honeymoon in Hawaii next month. I know that doesn't really have anything to do with anything, I just like saying it.
  5:51pm JtotheK:

Great show -- thanks sheilaB!!!
  5:52pm lpcoverlover:

Wow this Ranny Sinclair is insane cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm BabyBear:

Great show once again! You will be missed over the next 2 weeks. Thanks Sheila!
  5:53pm JoeG.:

@Parq:
Congrats to you and your niece! My wife and I spent our honeymoon there 11 years ago. I still think that Oahu is one of the most well rounded and beautiful islands anywhere! Plus, we stopped by an island-style bodega on a beach (somewhere) and the proprietor was playing Adriano Celentano in the store, which was my first introduction to his music. I wish them the best.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:53pm RomanDogBird:

great show sheila, got some reading done and got to sit around with my dog for once. v. excited for your return and for julie next week.

Enjoy Natalia Lafourcade in LA, Sheila. I see she's coming to Barcelona in Spain on February 15. Maybe a good excuse for a weekend trip?
