That Heart track is a work of genius

When Harpo played in PA a year ago, the opening act was an AC/DC tribute band. Their name? Halfway to Hell. It is indeed a long way to the top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:20pm efd:

I can't believe they're still around!

Hi efd and funky folk. Listening from a tiny airbnb bedroom where I'm planning my next few days in NYC. If anyone's going to Kenny G's thing on Saturday, look for a middle-aged woman in blue glasses knitting a sock. It's probably me and you should say hi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:42pm efd:

hey Kat, welcome to the Eastern time zone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/24/18 9:43pm Kat in Chicago in Ridgewood right now:

It has been a little odd today experiencing the WFMU schedule without an hour time shift.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:44pm Alex of Chicago:

so many odd things come to mind with Kenny G's thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:46pm efd:

this is the thing in question: www.ticketfly.com...

I'm really looking forward to it, even if it looks like I'll be making my way to Jersey City in a rain storm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:50pm efd:

yeah, the weather forecast for Saturday is not great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:51pm Alex of Chicago:

my condolences
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/24/18 9:52pm Kat in Chicago in Ridgewood right now:

Every time I come here there's one very rainy day. I expect it now!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 9:55pm Julie M:

Ah, Kat, it's only Wednesday. Seems like the forecasts aren't as accurate as they once were (not because of global climate change or anything). It could totally change in a couple of days, so I'm rootin' for ya.

Hey folks, a reminder that we're heading in to the last week of WFMU's October Fundraiser! I'd love to close the gap on my personal goal and help get the station closer to theirs, so if you like what you hear on my show and/or WFMU in general and you haven't pledged yet I hope you're able to do so now. Just hit that banner at the top left of the page, or click on this here link:

We've got new t-shirts, DJ premiums, and other swag to reward you for your support.

And many many thanks to everyone who's pledged so far! I'll be thanking pledges from last week and tonight later in the show.

Real lovely Essex Green set- I knew I shoulda seen them when they were here. (2) my oct wfmu check is sitting next to my keys, to be mailed tomw (3) I played Password League of America 45mins ago, a 2dice baseball game (via Jonathan Schwartz memoir "all in good time"). LA beat Boston 6-2. LA won yest too, 9-8 in ten innings.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 10:15pm Julie M:

Now 4-2 Boston in the bottom of the 5th. With a great muscial accompaniment.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/24/18 10:22pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Is this the original bed music, or the replacement?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 10:24pm efd:

i guess technically it's the replacement, but it's the one I've been using for a few years now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/24/18 10:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Really like Tony M.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 10:28pm efd:

i just wish the songs weren't so damn short!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 10:30pm Alex of Chicago:

I first saw and learned about Tony Molina at a festival in California. He had nice songs, but he's also a shredder in the best sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/24/18 10:32pm Alex of Chicago:

I think Tony M. and Dave Hill would get along.
