Shelia: Don't be too self-conscious about "rambling." For me, your rambles are the most interesting part of the show. (Vanishing New York and now Hamilton's Pharmacopeia.) Yes, the music is good too, but your personality makes the show work. You've got the mix of talk/music about right.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Michael 98145:

to quote: "Prior to the mass popularisation of recorded music in Portugal, Ercília Costa was widely known as the ‘Warbler of Fado’ for her mournful, sonorous vibrato.
Born in the Portuguese fishing parish of Costa de Caparica in 1902, Costa’s name became synonymous with Fado, a form of traditional music where melancholia and longing are often sung about, usually accompanied by Portuguese guitar. "

@NGH: Oh man, I have to listen to that! I was recently relistening to Scott's late-in-life cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U" with his voice breaking, croaking in strangely "correct" ways. So good.

This is at least the third Pongo track played by Sheila, and it's another confirmed BANGER.

William i'm no expert -it sounded like their voices to me so i'm assuming. i think they had it in 'em though. sounded great to me too!

Another incredible week of music, thank you as always. My Friday tradition.

ngh i've heard Jimmie Scott before but today it struck me how much he sounded like Billie Holiday at times. a really beautiful voice and great singer. i can imagine the marketing for him being a bit challenging though...although according to Doug that's not why his career faltered
Avatar 5:15pm northguineahills:

@coel: I was barley familiar w/ him until I went into a rabbit hole this morning. Very amazing stuff...
Avatar 5:18pm northguineahills:

errr….barely familiar..., I must be getting hungry or thirsty for barley....
Avatar 5:18pm coelacanth∅))):

he's been played on fmu a lot, over the years...(if i remember correctly) Irwin, Doug, Stork, Charlie (?)

I know thatt's the original Parole Parole but Dalida and Alain Delon's version has more zing. Thanx for spinning a great song, nonetheless. Caramel, bon bon et chocolat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Rob Kopp:

Mina beats both versions by Francoise Hardy (Je changers d'avis + I will change my life).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Rob Kopp:

And a little encouragement on SBB so sign helped. Congrats.

I really need to pick up Pomegranates. It's been on my list for years. The Middle Eastern and Persian songs are my favorite on SBB.
  5:29pm chiapat:

Yesss! Lisette Melendez, love it. Wasn't expecting freestyle dance on Boom Boom but thanks Sheila B!
  5:30pm Jett:

@Robb Those Hardy versions are okay but nowhere near as great as Mina's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Rob Kopp:

@Jett: I agree completely
  5:35pm Jett:

"Give Me Back My Heart" by Corina is my favorite freestyle track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Rob Kopp:

@#$%^ segways. Put a big bang between the songs!

It’s not just the power of social media, it’s also the power of this media right here...I’m happy to be one of those that signed the petition after Sheila brought it up on the air a few weeks ago.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Rob Kopp:

What "no segways" ?
Avatar 5:47pm mariano:

Oh wow... Beth Gibbons. One of the best things that ever happened to me in terms of live music is when a friend happened to have an extra ticket to see Portishead in 1994 at Bimbo's 365 in San Francisco, so she invited me along. Perfect venue for seeing them: like a lounge right out of Goodfellas, everyone at round cocktail tables with little lamps on them, table service, the works.
  5:48pm Jett:

I like Linda Lawson's version of "Where Flamingos Fly." Are you familiar with it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Rob Kopp:

Thanks for the records and the Rodney Reed news. I'll have a drink on it.
  5:52pm Jett:

@sheilab Not too many country music female artists appear on your show, any reason why?
