Avatar 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!

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!!!

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.:

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.
