Wendy! How are things?

Actually, going to e-mail you a tune right this very second, Wendy!
  9:19pm BH:

One of my local stations has changed slightly due to covid-induced Entercom layoffs. I just realized the layoffs means I can now hear voice-tracks from dudes who do overnights at a specific NYC alternative station while being in the midwest. So I can feel very connected to your part of the country without ever going there?
Avatar 9:19pm Jedley:

The show is perfectly timed for the second half of west coast drivetime now--can't wait for the Zoo Crew antics.

Haha thanks for bringing us fire and smoke sufferers onto the waves, and also I support spending the next 2.5 hours not thinking about it.

fell in love with this first time i ever heard it -- college, i think? late 70s, but still -- could not believe how many people who claimed to be "cool" HATED it AND Yoko! *heavy sigh*

Gaylord: that's interesting (yet not surprising) about FMU's ratio of John to Yoko.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@slugluv1313: I see the problem right there — "people who claimed to be 'cool'" (another divine deed performed on my personal Highway to Heaven)!

@mariano: I was actually surprised. I thought the ratio would be at least double in favor of Yoko.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm mariano:

The melody to this Shep Fields sounds a lot like "Sunny Side of the Street."

@Gaylord Looks like FMU needs more Yoko in the mix. Hopefully y'all can organize some sort of Yoko-thon and make it happen!

Glass half full, Gaylord. I'm sure the balance will reach favorable equilibrium. Actually, can't think of a single time I've heard any (solo) Lennon on FMU, and only a handful of Beatles songs.

Avatar 10:52pm slugluv1313:

hiya Gaylord!
oh yes -- amongst those who considered themselves "cool," Yoko was considered "noise" (and not in a positive way!) -- nor was it "cool" or "punk" to like Joni Mitchell, The Moody Blues, Neil Young, etc. etc. etc.
(weird, when i began college in 1977, everyone HATED "punk"/"New Wave" -- by the time i was in my last year, it had become "trendy" and people could be really judgmental/elitist about what was considered "cool")

@ken: what going on w/ Yoko??!!! She's my music/art hero!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Gaylord Fields:

@mariano: The Beatles are one of the most-played groups on WFMU — they're on over 2,200 playlists! It's just that it seems like less, because keep in mind that literally anything ever recorded (and some that are not) is eligible to played on the station, so the most-played artists on the station are a teensy percentage of all airplays.

@slugluv: My point is that people who feel the need to label themselves as "cool" are automatically disqualified from being such, specifically because actually cool people would never do something as uncool as announce that they are.

Wow, that's really interesting, Gaylord. I'll need to explore past playlists more.

Ok Ira and folks, need to run out for a bit, so thanks in advance if I'm not back before show's over. Take care everyone!

ngh, I loved it but was a bit concerned you were having a stroke
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@ngh: It's okay. I was able to translate your post. Don't stress over it. Perfection isn't required!
Avatar 11:09pm northguineahills:

@mariano: At least sally is east of NO, and you're getting a Baked Alaska.

@Krull: will confirm later if it was a stroke (one mistake, ok, two, I let it slide, 5!!!!, no excuse!).

@Owen: It's a lot like Perry Mason--you don't really need to be there for the first half.

Then there's the real Beatles / fake Beatles ratio.
Avatar 11:12pm TDK60:

That Santa Sprees might climb the charts.
  Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Ira:

@Ken: Paul was hit by a car in 1963 (I may have my year wrong) and killed. IT'S ALL FAKE BEATLES.

Only 1,487 for the Monkees. I thought they might beat the Beatles.

Right around the equinox is when the Pumpkin Spice Beatles start seeing more airplay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Handy Haversack:

Is there a hot mic catching Ira flipping through the pages of the /Sporting News/?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Krull Sagan:

Princess Irulan, from Dune- “Whoever controls the pumpkin spice, controls the universe”
  Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Ira:

@Handy Haversack: One of the advantages of being a Mets fan is that the Sporting News is not really essential reading.
  11:27pm FatboyMc:

Ira: new Mets owners: pro or con?

Same for all of us this year, Ira.

OH DANG

@FatboyMc: I'm going to go with the devil I don't know on this one. For now.

Sam Prekop! I have been out of touch with that dude for too long; never would’ve guessed. Was he with Sea & Cake? Or tortoise.....
  Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Ira:

Sea & Cake. Also Shrimp Boat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Krull Sagan:

Correct, Ira! I was just testing you....
  Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Ira:

Phew! The baked alaska thread that I've only been 1/3 following had me in a tizzy. Years ago, I failed to know what baked alaska was in a moment when it would have been preferable if I had.
Avatar 11:39pm Jedley:

Despite that failed run on $25,000 Pyramid, you've still earned a great time slot Ira.

was just listening to Steve miller band song, serenade. I feel I appreciate them more than I used to.

@Mariano: On first glance, I thought you had spotted four typos. What a relief.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Handy Haversack:

First, we go in there and get wrecked, then we eat a pork pie, then we drop a couple of Surmontil-50's each, means we'll miss out on Monday and come up smiling Tuesday morning.
