  4:02pm michaelz:

Dear Sheila, This is perhaps the best hour you have ever programmed. I couldn't comment, just let it wash over me. I have no idea what Rage of Plastics is about but I loved both versions. The Gloria Jones mini-set was a perfect tribute to such a versatile and gorgeous musician. I'm so glad you are playing country more on your show, and both Erin Rae and Kacey Musgraves were tops, not to mention the luscious Anemone, and the international aspects of the hour, ending with giant Mirriam Makeba. You remain the best Radio DJ. Breathtaking...

Hello Sheila, hello all. Due to other obligations a little later than usual.
Avatar 4:39pm Jeff Moore:

Note to all, though - a standalone audio player (like VLC


or iTunes or whatever) is always likely to be more long-term reliable than a player running in a web browser.

Then you can paste in live stream links from the top of this page:


(hint: 128k AAC recommended). In VLC, it'd be File -> Open Network...

I had no idea this was a cover. Thanks DJ B

Not my favorite song of the set...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Rob Kopp:

Covers can be great. Last week I bought 2 covers of one of my favorite Shangri-Las-songs Dresses in black: Non e mac tarsi by Rita Monica and So soft, so warm by the Nu-Luvs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Rob Kopp:

Starlets # 1 - You don't love me (a garage girl group), Starlets # 2 - Better tell him no (starts just like Sylvie Vartan's Whirlpool). Discogs is listing 12 groups called Starlets!
Avatar 5:01pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

@Rob Kopp: agreed. I have found some interesting Korean renditions of famous songs on the albums I've picked up. Covers of artists like The Carpenters, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, etc...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Rob Kopp:

@EMIS: I'm looking forward to listen to the new album by Bettye Lavette with Dylan covers
  5:08pm Adrian in London:

Ha ha, “Good evening”
  5:08pm Jocelyn:

Happy Friday everyone! Late again! Jet lagged.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm frozen_peas:

"Good Evening" reminds me of Bela Lugosi as Dracula. I think it's a winning line.
  5:08pm Ghoffman:

I’ll date you Sheila
Avatar 5:09pm JakeGould:

“Good evening? That lady probably has cancer and old person smell!”

Anyway, most DJs say they don’t like sunlight… But then when the record fair venue is mentioned, everyone drolls over THE SUNLIGHT!!!
Avatar 5:10pm northguineahills:

I technically met my wife online. I went through a bad breakup and typed in "Deerhoof" and "Alejandro Jodorowsky" in the interests section of Myspace and some Mexican girl came up. A few months later, I met a Mexican musician (AAM) who hooked me up w/ some dj gigs in Monterrey, Mexico, and the rest is history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm PBastille:

Got my invite to the record fair today. Sadly too far away. But it looks nice on the fridge!

This Eliza Shaddad record is such a stunner. So glad you're feeling it my friends!

That bass is nice.

now THAT is the segue of the month, Sheila! well done!
  5:17pm JakeGould:

Aaahhhhh… My fave Cure song!
  5:17pm Jocelyn:

I met my former boyfriend of almost twenty years on IRC. Oh the dinosaur days of the net. I think I was still paying hourly for internet access.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm chris:

such a great live set from Renata Zeiguer! (thanks, Ernie: sounded awesome!)

and this set is really kicking ass, Sheila!
  5:18pm Adrian in London:

This track is so much more diverse and exciting than Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival line-up
Avatar 5:19pm djsheilab:

I'm glad everyone has positive online dating stories, I only tried it that one day and then felt dumb about my "good evening" fail!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm JtotheK:

"good evening" everyone - meeting adjourned so back for more tunes...
Avatar 5:22pm Brian Cat:

Doctor's Orders I remember this song! Isn't this from the seventies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe it's about time to bring back Why Oh Why? with Andrea Silenzi.
  5:24pm JasonInBoston:

@sheilab-my brief stint with online dating was a nightmare. I'll tell you about it later BUT I met Stacy via a FB comment about "You Don't Have to Worry" by Doris & Kelly. So glad we had Gabe Vaughn at Breakaway Records in Austin as a mutual friend!
Avatar 5:24pm djsheilab:

I love how much this Gwen Stefani record sounds like old Madonna.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Carmichael:

"Old Madonna" ... he he
Avatar 5:25pm Brian Cat:

Avatar 5:25pm djsheilab:

JasonInBoston—Another online success story! I'm very happy to hear this.
  5:26pm Jocelyn:

I get slammed for it but I've always loved Gwen and felt she's a much better artist than given credit for.
Avatar 5:26pm Monica:

yo, sheila! "doctor's orders" was produced by my dear friend eddie o'loughlin for the midland label (which he co-owned). after the disco era, he went on to found next plateau and had enormous success in the 80s with salt'n'pepa , among others! great show as always!
Avatar 5:26pm djsheilab:

Bless you Jocelyn!!! I completely agree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm JtotheK:

@Monica - did "among others" also include Ultramagnetic MC's 'Critical Beatdown' ? (such a great record!)
Avatar 5:28pm djsheilab:

Monica—Oh wow! How excellent to hear that he made that masterpiece of a record and then went onto work with Salt N' Pepa! I shall look him up.
  5:29pm Jocelyn:

Even back in the early 90's before Tragic Kingdom, she's bouncing around the stage, experimenting with different sounds while the guys looked bored with their instruments.
  5:30pm Jocelyn:

Gwen takes a lot of risks but doesn't get credit because she's "beautiful" so it must be a producer or a husband's idea.
Avatar 5:30pm northguineahills:

@djsheilab: You see my normal banter here on the comments board. I'm no longer a spring chicken, and my weird phrases still have women occasionally hitting on me when out.

Be yourself, you want someone who will like you for who you are. If annyeonghaseyo, buenos tardes, or good evening chases some sod off, better for you! (Besides, we heart you!)
Avatar 5:31pm Dominick:

  5:31pm Adrian in London:

I must bid you all an early adieu because, despite serious misgivings, I’m getting up early to queue for a couple of RSD goodies. Xx
Avatar 5:31pm djsheilab:

Adrian In London—Good luck tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Rob Kopp:

Don't you order your RSD-issues on forehand?

Avatar 5:35pm djsheilab:

Jocelyn—That is the common view of so many female producers + writers. People always wonder, what man is lurking behind them? UGH. Bjork, Grimes, and so many others talk about this. I interviewed Lesley Gore years ago and she lamented about her struggles as a writer.
Avatar 5:37pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

this is the perfect set for my next office function since I work in a hospital!

Sheila, Thanks for the great streaming, beautiful women, beautiful music, beautiful show! Hope to catch you again soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm frozen_peas:

I'm glad you didn't play it but now that awful "doctor, doctor, give me the news" song is in my head.

It's sad that view hasn't changed over the years.

  5:43pm Taavi:

Good Evening: Henry Glover is a name familiar from a late-career association with Levon Helm and the Woodstock circle. But he goes way back, to King records especially....

Also, found the Twitter account and followed. Not difficult at all!

I just searched for Sheila B WFMU.

Many handles on all sorts of platforms are difficult, you just have to know what you were looking for. And I did!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Rob Kopp:

I've asked for the Sevdaliza release as well (for Sheila or Adrian; when I get it they have to fight about it)
