I can be productive during Bryce's show. Sheila B's grooves make me wish I was home with the volume cranked and a drink in hand. Which I'll achieve for the last half hour of the show ...

I think excerpts of the Nico film Sweet Skin is available on Youtube.

She has never sounded more seductive. It isn’t on any of the compilations I have seen of girls Serge recorded.

Being on the Wake chat was making me late to work too many times, so I’m trying to get on when I can in the evening on other shows.
It is really nice to run into people from there all throughout the rest of the day!

Hope you had a good Friday so far brother!

I love the first Maki Asakawa album. There's a bar in Tokyo that plays only her music apparently.

Thanks for being here for us every Friday Sheila! It means one hell of a lot to me!

Also listeners, if you don’t follow Sheila on Twitter you should do so just to see her triumphant Twitter photo.

80s dance classic! They didn't like this being played at Catholic high school dances b/c of the skinny-dipping and "cherry wine."
  3:25pm michael z:

It’s a perfect way to end the set. You are brilliant Sheila.

You should've gone with it. Great track.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Rob Kopp:

@Sheila: This could be something for you. Every year Ray Davies, one of the best songwriters in the world I know, is doing a songwriting course. For 16 students only. I did that course in 2001 and it has been one of the great experiences in my life. It's not necessary that you have been writing. I only had written one song before I went there. You have to write (and perform) 2 songs a day.

@michael@3:50, I stood in front of the stage cabinets at a Steppenwolf concert. My ears are still ringing.

@Shelia: It was, but you don't have to be a Kinks fan. One of the other students was an opera singer who had won the course. She hadn't the slightest idea who Ray Davies was.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Rob Kopp:

but what is a playback singer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Michael 98145:

@Rob K, typically from South Asian film soundtracks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Guido from Cologne:

the cover!
Hahahaha!

usually an actress mouths the words of the songs

i had that song on napster when i was 12
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A Kylie Minogue song was on Julie's Australia show yesterday. Had fun chatting with Anna Copa Cabanna on the show, too. I don't think she cares much for bulldog ants, it would appear.
  5:02pm John from Florham park:

@KFHP that was a great show yesterday
Avatar 5:02pm northguineahills:

I had an uber driver in NYC that Kylie Minogue videos playing... (a long time ago....)
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Handy Haversack:

@KFHP and JFFP, that was a blast. But a lot of different animals really took it on the chin! Apparently only koalas get the love ...
  5:04pm Mike Wolf:

Just re-tuned in — what happy French pop band is in our midst, SB??
  5:04pm Mike Wolf:

L’Imperatrice?
  5:04pm William Main:

Would like to hear more about your criteria for good song vs. bad song. Or would you say "I cant explain but I know it when I hear it?"
Avatar 5:05pm djsheilab:

Mike Wolf—L'Imperatrice!
  5:06pm John from Florham park:

@Handy I know but o am sure it will be corrected
  5:09pm michael z:

When your show ends I am going to listen to this album. Thanks for being so current Sheila.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Guido from Cologne:

A great sound-bed for Kadhja Bonet's voice.

Definitely going to have Anna back on radio, I think she's good at it like she is everything

It was a really fun show, Julie. Was glad to catch it.
Avatar 5:12pm djsheilab:

FMU Julie! I didn't realize that was you. Hey! Glad the show with Anna went well. She's such a star.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Julie:

Kylie also had a hit with Lucky didn't she? I should be so lucky, lucky lucky lucky. I sing that to my bird (Lucky)

Ah, Sneaker Pimps. One of those good bands with a terrible, terrible name.
  5:22pm Jett:

Thought you would have chosen the Nina Simone version of Jimmy Webb's "Do What You Gotta Do," Roberta's version is okay also.
Avatar 5:23pm ncjay:

Kelli Ali has a number of good solo albums too

Was just thinking that, @Ike. Like Viagra Boys.

Viagara Boys + Sneaker Pimps. TRULY awful names.
  5:24pm Jett:

Bobbie Gentry is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Ike:

I'm sure some DJ could do a whole WFMU marathon premium out of those, @Handy! Assuming nobody has done it already.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Handy Haversack:

Ha! Good call! Submit it to the Overmind!
Avatar 5:25pm charlie brown:

Better Kylie than Madonna. I enjoyed that tune, but I am kinda high right now.

Great Show, Sheila. Digging the Gentry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Ike:

Oh, there are articles about this!
www.pastemagazine.com...
However, I disagree strongly with this writer. I think King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is a fantastic name! However, they're right on Soccer Mommy. Good band, and maybe the worst name on the list.
  5:27pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

Awesome tune. Digging the funk while assembling an Ikea dresser!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Passaic River Blues:

I love "Estre" so much. I still make CD compilations for people, and this so often leads off the mix. Heard first right here on SBB!

Just to say that Kylie's album, Fever, is so so good! Never sounds old to me, I adore it. Thanks for playing!

KG&tLW is a great name, @Ike!
Avatar 5:32pm mariano:

Yeah, Bettye Lavette has a great version of "Made a Woman Out of Me". Hey shielab, ever heard "Algo de mí" by Camilo Sesto? In case you haven't, it's a great 70s Spanish torch song: www.youtube.com...

That was so classy of you to recognize Bob, that had a big day influence on you. It's important that you always remember these valued friends. I think this is a major reason that I like you so much. We are definitely kindred spirits.
