Avatar 3:47am Bas NL:

I'm trying to regain my balance with lots of coffee after staying up late for the marathon finale! Your sounds help mighty fine as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48am Jim the Poet:

I need more coffee too! I might need to put on something long!
Avatar 3:51am Bas NL:

*nod* ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am fred:

Hello Jim and confined poets. Of course I can't get the remote access to work, so I won't be confined for long
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am Jim the Poet:

Hey Fred! I can't get remote access to work either! Hard to work at a bookstore from home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am zivilars:

Hey Jim – VERY nice song selection, thanks for the show! Not sure if I understand it correctly that you are not very often on the air, but if yes: You should do this more often!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am fred:

@Jim: I guess you'll have to make your home a bookstore then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Jim the Poet:

Hey Zivilars! With everything that's going on maybe I squeeze in a couple of shifts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22am Jim the Poet:

I would love to sleep at the bookstore!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am zivilars:

@Jim: Would be awesome! Hope everyone stays safe and healthy AND hearing you more often! :)

Avatar 4:27am modern blaze:

good listening, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am Jim the Poet:

Hey Annette and Blaze!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am LastWhiteRhino:

Hey Jim the Poet, nice surprise tuning in this morning to hear YOU. It was good meeting you Friday . Too bad JC's curfew shut down Stashu's Polka a Go-Go earlier than expected. I stopped at the City Diner after the show to sober up a little and I had to put my name and contact info on a sign in sheet before they would serve me. Weird times right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Jim the Poet:

Whoa that's crazy! Good meeting you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am LastWhiteRhino:

Went to the Shop Rite last night at about 10PM, no crowds, but also no chicken at all but plenty of chop meat, the pasta aisle had only thin spaghetti , no other form of pasta. Plenty of jarred cocktail mini onions but limited dog food choices. It was an interesting marketing snapshop of the tastes and wants of today's consumers. Oh, and needless to say, no paper products as well as no bread . Maybe bread slices are now substituting for toilet tissue.
  5:03am Tennessee Jeb:

Keep dishin em out Jim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am Jim the Poet:

what's up Jeb
  5:07am Tennessee Jeb:

Off to work. Until the union says otherwise. But I appreciate the soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Jim the Poet:

Oh man I got so much toilet paper but that's because I drunk-bought Charmin's Forever Rolls a while ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am LastWhiteRhino:

Charmin is my main squeeze !
  5:11am Tennessee Jeb:

When I think of my arsenal of toilet paper I can at least say to myself, “everything’s gonna be alright”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16am Jim the Poet:

Why is everyone hoarding TP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am LastWhiteRhino:

@Tennessee: Sounds like you have everything " covered" in the T P area . Something about the arsenal word cracks me up, arse ( in Irish brogue) + anal = arsenal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am LastWhiteRhino:

TP = Total Panic
  5:22am Tennessee Jeb:

Doesn’t Australian comments have something to do with the hoarding? I missed the reasoning but love how the internet ran with it
  5:23am Tennessee Jeb:

The internet did teach me the native corn cob alternative...if need be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am LastWhiteRhino:

Maize-y fresh back there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26am Jim the Poet:

Whoa I have to look that up
Avatar 5:38am modern blaze:

  5:45am Ajay from Krommenie / NL:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am Jim the Poet:

I couldn't decide what song to play because they are all amazing. Good luck with the run!
Avatar 5:54am modern blaze:

kindness is key that's for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am Jim the Poet:

Thanks for listening everyone! See you next time! Be careful out there!
