Mary Lattimore playing into Sheila B. is like emerging from a dream, or perhaps into the Good Place.

Will Sheila tell us what Alain Delon movies she’s watched since last week, I wonder.
Avatar 3:12pm Itzall Funan Gaimes:

Love this Brazilian Girls song and that cover has me in (not literal but still) stitches! Is she "wandering lonely"?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Crudbringer:

...how many is a brazilian, anyhow?
  3:12pm Toothgrinder Tom:

Wandering lonely as a cloud?

Toothy T, yes, exactly like an cloud. The rest of them seem pretty cheerful, however.

Hello Sheila B., fellow Sophisticates
  3:16pm Cooh John:

Hello djsheilab and sequestered boom boomers. Grey, gloomy, and overcast between the Scioto and Olentangy rivers with a gleam of girl-centric goodness shining through. Oooh, this Nina song is on my Seeburg jukebox! Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Passaic River Blues:

Nina now and forever.
  Swag For Life Member 3:17pm mysilentface:

Happy Friday, Sheila and the Boom Boom gang. This Nina song, yesss!
  3:17pm Cooh John:

Michael 98145, the song was written for her.
  3:18pm Toothgrinder Tom:

I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never heard of those rivers. I have been to Columbus once, though.
  3:19pm Toothgrinder Tom:

But I’ve never been to ‘me’.

Hi Sheila
So happy you are there.
  3:21pm Toothgrinder Tom:

M.I.A. also has a song called ‘Jimmy.’
Avatar 3:21pm djsheilab:

You could do a whole "Jimmy" show and it'd be fantastic @Toothgrinder Tom
  3:22pm WM:

Dear Shelia: on your advice I watched Le Samouraï. Yes, its a fine film and I want a hat like Alain Delon's. I also caught up with another Melville film, Army of Shadows. Also very good.
Avatar 3:23pm Itzall Funan Gaimes:

Curious; do the DJs see when we click-star a song or cover image? I mean, does it seem like we are sucking up if we hit EVERY SINGLE selection?!?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:23pm diciassette:

on Down on Me by Heart I always misheard this one lyric as "Jimmy, Jimmy I wanna dance you darlin'"
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 3:23pm cal:

Good afternoon,Sheila. So nice to be here with you and your music this afternoon. Glad you liked my haircut video on facebook.
  3:23pm Jett:

I love all that early Kiki Dee material, Fontana, Rare Earth, and other early labels.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:24pm The Oscar:

I've been relying pretty heavily on TCM lately. They showed The Scarlet Empress the other day (with Marlene Dietrich as Catherine the Great!), and it was WILD.

I rented and rewatched ‘Purple Noon’ after the discussion last week. Enjoyed it immensely but my wife watched and rewatched it something like ten times.

From Alvy's perspective, it's the Alvy Singer Show, engineered by Sheila B.!
  3:28pm Toothgrinder Tom:

I’m surprised that Delon can pull off that fedora as well as he does in Le Samourai because he has a small, fine-featured face.

You are nailing it, exactly how I feel now. So f'd up from one hour to the next and then... just "OK". Just take care of YOU, SheilaB, it's all you can do.
  3:35pm michael z:

It’s difficult to be positive right now Sheila but you bring comfort by your very presence. Your energy is so communicative as is your honesty and caring.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Bob in Oakland:

One of the best aspects of working from home for the past two months has been being able to listen to my favorite FMU daytime shows, including SBB, in real time.

i feel this one
Avatar 3:37pm Jeezuseffinchrist:

I get why people would reach out for guidance to those who have weathered tough times alone prior to the current experience. But honestly, sometimes that leaves a bad taste in my mouth when it's coming from people who looked down on you, the so-called strong one who knows how to survive when you were going through it....but now fair weather friends want to buddy up for your help and strength? I know we're all human, flawed and learning as we go, but man that really feels unfair sometimes...

This cover is sublime. Bob Dylan also did Help but his version is a desperate cry of anguish.
  3:47pm David in Brooklyn:

Sheila: Thank you for being so selfless and for producing this beautiful program at a time when others would have taken some time off to deal with the sadness in their lives -- I am so sorry to hear -- and I am sure that we are all sorry to hear -- about the losses you've suffered in the past week.
  3:47pm andrewb:

story goes Dylan lifted this beat for "everybody must get stoned" Napoleon, not Dolly

When the Ceaucescus would get nervous about an artist's voice getting too powerful, that artist would be summoned for a meeting with a certain colonel.

They'd be put in a waiting room and wait six+ hours on a bench and then be told the meeting was canceled.

Of course, the bench had a lump of strontium-90 under it, and if the artist hadn't died of cancer in 6 mos., they'd be called in for another meeting.

I never imagined that Sheila's wonderful show would turn into a debate about Bolsheviks versus anarchists. Freeform is beyond all political divides!

There is this guy in my building who is a Trump supporter. I know because the the mail lady (who is Chinese) always puts the pro-Trump mailings he gets on the top of the mail box even though she knows who he is an he literally lives right next to the building mailbox.

That is justice to me.

@Stanley, I had this VISCERAL sense memory the other day of having Orkney stout with an Orkney cheddar and pickle sandwich. Took me a while to recover!

Thanks @Ike

This is the stuff. I had a zoom family meeting, and came back to this. Amazing.
  5:36pm egould310:

It’s a fine day.

It’s a great song. Thanks for playing it, SheilaB!
  5:36pm dM:

what an amazing version of "its a fine day" thank you!!!
  5:36pm Julia F:

@artbrau, @brainiac: No kidding -- the "Tro-lo-lo" guy was one of the Soviet censor Lapin's favorites! He was one of the people promoted over the women I wrote to Sheila about. And the song lyrics were about an American cowboy freely riding the range. Of course that was verboten, so they changed to nonsense "Tro-lo-lo"! Can't make this stuff up...

Hi Handy!

Jane. Classic Indie 80's weirdness. Great.
  5:37pm Chi Bill:

Only caught the last hour but excellent show and I am right with you sister on the judge-mental folk out there. Missed but loved that you played "they're coming to take me" LOL. Thanks Shiela B with one L. Stay safe all.

I always thought this was a techno/trance song, didn't realize this was the original. This is the one I remember hearing www.youtube.com...

Aw Handy. I brought back a few terrific beers from NJ. All gone now but also memorable.

That's fine - you guys hold 'em down & I'll cut. Okay, who's got extra hearts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Dave in Vermont:

That's easy to say, and correct I think, but it gives us the opportunity to have deep compassion and total acceptance for ourselves.
  5:43pm JakeGould:

I think everyone is doing a fine job of warping Sheila’s on air rant that she clearly senses her own doubts into an actual policy that is somehow going to lead to genocide.

Anyway, put them on trial and lock them up.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Dave in Vermont:

of course, Jake totally agree with your first paragraph, but as you demonstrate with your second paragraph people think it's right and it leads to division and mob think -there's satire but i don't think this is what that was
I love the show- i have really been enjoying it

i don't think anyone here, no matter their view on this idea, isn't equally horrified by the terrible racist violence that led to the commentary. it's a reasonable first reaction

  5:49pm Andal:

Jake, no need to be disingenous. People pointing out that Sheila B. was calling for a reeducation camp is not the same as criticizing her for being genocidal.

I think it would be more of a resort than a camp. By the way, has anyone tried the crudités? They are so raw and delectable.

Thank you, Sheila! Such a great place to be when place and being have all taken on different meanings.

Kate is also rightfully demanding a shoutout to Berlin her and how good the source material is.

Be cool, everyone. So glad to have shared this time with you.

@Andal: Buddy, I fully understand what she said. Stop clutching your pearls.

I have a bagel store near me whose owner’s son thinks it’s unfair that Nazi rallies are banned and I personally believe is a member of “Patriot Front.”

And just this week spent an evening tearing down multiple home-made posters that compared “Social Isolation” to people being gathered onto cattle cars in World War II.
