@NotARealDoctor Of course, the flipside is when you fall in love with a song on WFMU, only to discover that NO ONE else has it!
Avatar 3:27pm NotARealDoctor:

@SALTnPEPPERTEENAGER, the only way I know to buy tracks from WFMU is to go to their semi-annual record sale. Otherwise you'll have to go through iTunes/Google Play or some similar service to download.

Yves is a French name, usually male, pronounced approx. 'Eevh' in English.

The female form would be the more commonly known Yvette.

@PassaicRiverBlues see if you can get the Kim Jung Mi albums from http://mg.gmarket.co.kr/Item?goodscode=1181437708 . This seller has international shipping, but not sure what the fee is.

Hey Sheila! This is week is a week of crazy feels. So thanks for the balancing act of today’s show.

Checked and it is around $22.00 to ship to US

Actually Fugees still have female members.
For pop I can't say precisely, but the Continental Drifters had pop red (members of the Bangles and Cowsills!) and I know some rock and indie-roots acts --- The Blacks, Mendoza Line, Handsome Family, etc.

  4:32pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

@PassaicRiverBlues Definitely worth it since once all the record sellers scoop these up they will charge double or triple the price! Finding Kim Jung Mi originals or represses in Korea is really difficult.
