i snucked in early to get a head start on the cheese and onion dip
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Rich must still be running around in the halls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Rich in Washington:

Whew...
<huff huff>
Just made it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Here I am again! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Rich in Washington:

Don't not stop not hitting yourself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Linda Lee:

won't you take me to Funky Town?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I just got my daughter to take off her headphones ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Linda Lee:

oh isn't that pretty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is a glorious track :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm WR:

Let's feel the funk. Sweet start with Riperton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Rich in Washington:

It's lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

She was such an incredible artist <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Linda Lee:

I'll admit I've only just known 'loving you', which was so terribly overplayed on american radio I didn't check her out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Linda Lee:

it's a shame how they do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You get a few sessions with her during this hour - she was in Rotary Connection, as well as her solo stuff :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Rich in Washington:

yeah. Me as well, LL. I remember finding that track so saccharine back then but now I actually like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Linda Lee:

I don't think I can hear it clearly yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Rich in Washington:

I just adore her daughter Maya Rudolph. I think she's brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Linda Lee:

wow check this out though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you listen to Loving You on headphones, right at the very end you can hear her singing "Maya Maya Maya" - to her daughter, the wonderful Maya Rudolph :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow, GG! This is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - snap! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Linda Lee:

this is phenomenal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love Rotary |Connection :-) That's Minnie doing the incredible high tones :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Linda Lee:

sure thought so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Perfect cooking music :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Linda Lee:

wowwwww...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Rotary Connection are incredible. aren't they? So glad I could play this for you all :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Linda Lee:

I mentioned to you before about the 'dirty old new york' video series? images of new york city in film from the 60s - 70s - 80s? one negative ~ maybe the only one ~ to the series is that the soundtrack music is sometimes.. a little dull. something like *this* would've been fabulous. just super evocative & sexy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That would have been incredible!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Linda Lee:

right? it's a shame Hertzburg isn't a musical guy. strictly visual. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

I'm not sure I've seen the whole series yet. there are about 8 videos in the series. my lost home town..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I realised that if a TV show or a movie has a terrible soundtrack it outs me off quicker than a bad script. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

hahah! can't imagine why. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

Labelle were so phenomenal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love all the Nelson Sullivan videos of New York. I think I spotted you at last :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Linda Lee:

did you? haha! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Every time I've played this live people come over with huge smiles saying "WHAT IS THIS???" :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Linda Lee:

it's beautiful. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Linda Lee:

you know that's me on 7th & A because I can't lay off my own hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And some more Rotary Connection :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Linda Lee:

& I've got on a big satchel. I'm with my housemate & another girl, who, I remember, liked asking me about being bisexual because she was in love with a bisexual boy. I was the representative specimen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Linda Lee:

this is fantastic!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love all of those videos. Everyone is so vibrant and creative and you can feel the energy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Linda Lee:

it really was an incredibly lovely time in town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

it can be a little awkward feeling like a representative of a type
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Linda Lee:

gosh. it can! but I think part of her curiosity was based in the fact that we had a limited vocabulary for describing sexual fluidity .. it was 1985. 'bisexual' was pushing it! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

and, in related news, Linda Lee, i just signed up for the SF BI-Con! hee hee! Pansexuals are included in the Bi scene these days. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Linda Lee:

I had close friends, gay friends, who were telling me at the time that there were no bisexuals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Especially when your friends suddenly assume that you're going to hit on them ... Uh. No. It doesn't work like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Linda Lee:

well that's just silly, isn't it.
good for you Granny!! lovely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@GST - high five from the pan in the UK! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Linda Lee:

fabulous!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Linda Lee:

I'd have Identified as Pan, I'm sure, at the time, but the term wasn't there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm getting funky now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Linda Lee:

it was strictly about the binary. I'm so glad the dialogue's expanded.
this is fabulous, GG. wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I trust everyone is doing a little groovy shuffle wherever you are ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Linda Lee:

wow. beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I got a new external hard drive just before the holidays and it took me an hour and a half to back up all my digital music ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Linda Lee:

wow. mp3s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Linda Lee:

amazing song .. but I do wonder about the metaphor. is he saying cast-off girls are carrion?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep. :-) That's just the digital stuff ;-)
I think all the Sheena DJs could open a store ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

life is so much more luscious beyond the binary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Linda Lee:

well there's an idea, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think he sees ALL women as prey in this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

btw, the latest definition of bisexual is "attracted to more than one gender"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@GST - :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Linda Lee:

yes. and there are 2. Lol!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm WR:

Labi Siffre is new to me. Looking online and see he has large body I need familiarize myself with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Linda Lee:

Billy Preston! 'outta space' was my 5th grade favorite!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@WR - Labi Siffre is incredible! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@LL - this is my fave Billy song :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: HA HA! I identify as metagender, which a friend of mine defines as "i never met a gender i didn't like"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Linda Lee:

there ya go. good on you Granny! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Also both Labi and Billy are LGBTQ artists :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Linda Lee:

I always giggle a little at this one 'cos he sings about his willy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@GST - Elton John once said he was trisexual. He'd try anything at least once ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Linda Lee:

oh wait..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Willy go round in circles ... LOL!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Linda Lee:

willy fly high like a bird up in the sky..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

and Elton somehow lived to tell!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You're making me laugh!!! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Linda Lee:

good thing americans don't know what a willy is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Did he answer the question? I was too busy laughing to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think he was generally boasting ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Now imaging me trying to explain to a young, gay British fellow what a "fanny pack" is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Linda Lee:

ahaha!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Willy go round in circles! Willy fly high! Look at me! Damn! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Linda Lee:

oh boy...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Linda Lee:

hahahaha!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Fanny pack is guaranteed to make us laugh like five year olds in the UK ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"Wow - that woman has a cute fanny!"
"WHAT?????"
lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Linda Lee:

June Millington will swear they didn't know at all when they called the band "Fanny'. the British boys loved them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I admit that when I first heard about the band Fanny I did snigger for a bit. Sorry. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm !:

of course you did. imagine a band called Twat..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

hahahahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Linda Lee:

'Twat's Greatest Hits'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was genuinely confused and startled when an American friend years ago said that he was pissed at work. lol
"Did they not fire you??"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Linda Lee:

hahaha!!
even better, he *got* pissed at work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go! That's a relaxed office!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He got pissed and admired some fannies. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Linda Lee:

hahahahaha!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Linda Lee:

& then he had to go see Willy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's something very puerile about British DNA ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Linda Lee:

not so sure it's just the British..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

True :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Linda Lee:

this Ray Bryant is lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

you two!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Fab, isn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I'm good really. Honest ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Linda Lee:

it's been a while. we're catching up. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Linda Lee:

oh. yes. Donny Hathaway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We're getting back into the groove of naughtiness and silliness. Just in time for the roaring twenties! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Linda Lee:

frankly, I'm having a hard time believing it's the new year this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Linda Lee:

.. but I'm ready to let 2019 pass like a bad odor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You talking to someone who doesn't even know what day it is ... lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Linda Lee:

you do remember your shows, though. not so far gone yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was fine up until Christmas Eve and then all concept of days went out the window.
I remembered my shows cos I set Google alarms ;-) Not taking any chances! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm WR:

Great show! Now that the stew is simmering I am supposed to be back to work, but you keep me busy looking up about the music. I don't know how I could know nothing before about Black Merda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Linda Lee:

ah. good :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@WR - glad I could introduce you to some new stuff :-) How's the stew looking?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Linda Lee:

this is mighty hot. reminds me of the conga players in any park in New York in the 70s & early 80s. are they still around?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't know - I hope they are :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Linda Lee:

the last time I passed through it seemed they'd gone ~ along with so many of us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Linda Lee:

was 'Smackwater Jack' Carole King or James Taylor?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hopefully Greg will be back next week - but if not it'll either be me or Mr. Fab
Thank you all for hanging out! :-) I've had so much fun :-)
@LL - I think Carole King?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One more song from me - and then I'll be back on Wednesday :-)
Next year! Next decade!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Linda Lee:

it was. just checked. :-)
what a great evening, GG! wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Linda Lee:

next decade.. goodness gracious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you :-)
Huge hugs to all of you lovely people!!! :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Linda Lee:

oh! the DJ said " WILL IT" !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go - an hour of funkiness :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Linda Lee:

thanks so much GG!! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You're very very welcome :-) <3
Avatar 7:59pm Martinibomb:

Just catching the tail! Thanks GG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thanks everyone! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm WR:

There still some conga players in the park, I think. Have an acquaintance who is a player he puts pic on Facebook occasionally. But don't think it is a widespread thing any more with people regularly hanging out. Do see individuals or duos in subway system playing for tips. Ok great show. Until next time.
