Happy B-day, Toni D.!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:07pm CB1:

Evenin' Mo!

Great beats!!!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:13pm Erik:

I think its actually Namtchylak but whatever... great track
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:14pm Jeff M:


You give me fever.

Please don't tell my fiancee.

  Sun. 7/12/09 7:15pm Paul:

  Sun. 7/12/09 7:18pm G:

Nice tuneage for me to keep from being annoyed while working online. :-) Another saudade-filled song about brasilian carnaval...

Spotted the FMU brigade seated under a tent at the Burmese Water Festival on the Lower East Side this afternoon. Bryce's hairdo is hard to mistake. Was with companions or I'd have considered poking them in person...
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:20pm texas scott:

hello,monica and fellow fans,
hey G...was pseu in the mix?
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:26pm G:

I'm more an ear person than an eye person, so I am not an expert on appearances of radio hosts. Bryce is just visually distinctive at this point. It was definitely not a stag group, though...
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:29pm monica:

how-dee to Jeff M. (don't be gettin' me in trubs!), G (did Bryce leave a good tip?), Paul (me too! just heard it today!), Texas Scott in da house!, Dean happy bday to yer fren), CB1 (mon plaisir), Erik (it's Namtchylak, I mispelled it too!)... OK, who's buyin' tonight?
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:32pm texas scott:

next round on me.
barkeep...set'um up.
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:33pm G:

The Burmese Water Festival was one of those "buy strings of tickets for a dollar apiece and redeem them at food vendors" events. If Bryce is normally an excellent tipper, he'd have been frustrated at his lack of opportunity. Definitely a carry-around-with-you event rather than a table-service event.

The music and dancing (with hand gestures) was worth the trip...
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:38pm Maggie in Rock Tavern:

Hey Monica! You so rule the Sunday evening airwaves.
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:40pm Paul:

You never cease to amaze....!!!!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:40pm Bruce:

Well, here's something for the DJ tip jar...
Stop me if you've heard it before...
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:42pm texas scott:

oh,i do love me some Gershwin!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:44pm Jeff M:

We've been tasting potential wedding-related champagnes, so the drinks here in our house have been on... oh, I don't even remember anymore. Whee!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:47pm texas scott:

i want this...

  Sun. 7/12/09 7:50pm G:

Bid $.72 then, Scott :-P
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:53pm monica:

Hey Bruce, thanks so much! Texas Scott, you bake that? Jeff M, we'd all be happy to help you discern the bestest vintage for the ahppy nuptials, Thank ye Maggie & Paul!!
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:54pm molerat:

Be careful. It came from hunted hose.

Enjoying the show, as always.
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:55pm Gary Martin:

Monica..this turn back ...is it from an off broadway show as it sounds? which one? I love it on the premium.
Best ...listener gary
  Sun. 7/12/09 7:55pm texas scott:

you guys crack me up.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:01pm boogie dwn brnx:

oh my gosh! i remember this cartoon.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:03pm G:

Sonia Manzano was I believe the person who first sang the song "Turn Back O Man" in the original version of Godspell, though I'm not sure if she was in the New York or the London show, in the early 70s. The internet knows. My grandparents took me to the London version when I was a wee thing.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:08pm Parq:

Just tuned in and wondered if this was you -- and it is! My kiddo was 4 when "Lion King" first hit the screen, so I've been through the theatrical release, the VHS cassette release, the movie soundtrack (on cassette), the BWay OC album (CD) and the deluxe two-disc DVD release. I sometimes feel that I ought to set a place for Nate Lane and Ernie Sabella at dinner.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:09pm Parq:

Speaking of dinner, I'm heading back into the kitchen, and I'd better not hear Miss Monica report that you guys are giving her trouble. Remember, there's ice cream at stake.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:11pm wikipedia:

Sonia Manzano (born December 6, 1950) is an American actress and writer. She is best known for playing Maria on Sesame Street since 1971....

  Sun. 7/12/09 8:12pm texas scott:

and now the incredible ,,,Misty Morgan!
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:14pm Gary Martin:

Wow!! Wikipedia is listening to the show? Does that make you nervous, Monica?]
Listener Gary
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:15pm Jeff M:

Ann Magnuson rules. And she's Ken's friend on the 'book. (My head is too full of bubbles to figure out if she's yours, as well.)

I loved the "Men's Choir" song. But which particular Men's Choir, again? I've been hearing some fun stuff recently fron the Seattle Men's Chorus (and their subset[?], Captain Smartypants).

Also: yay, bubbles. They make me festive.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:15pm CB1:

  Sun. 7/12/09 8:15pm wikipedia:

Jes' helpin' out's all.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:17pm CB1:

Take two: JANIS!
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:19pm texas scott:

  Sun. 7/12/09 8:19pm monica:

  Sun. 7/12/09 8:20pm texas scott:

  Sun. 7/12/09 8:32pm molerat:

Yay! A shout-out. I think...
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:34pm texas scott:

cease tryin to forgive those who wronged u
aim to kill the self within,
not until then will u find
there is nothing that even the remembers the injury
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:39pm texas scott:

an EARLY Birthday present just for you ,Monica.
may you see the world thru many eyes...


tonite's show has been very enjoyable.thank you.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:42pm Jeff M:

Oh, for those interested in the bubbly (tasted blind):

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut (a long personal favorite, which I expected to come in first): kind of malty, almost beer-like, complex and interesting but maybe a distraction from a time of festivity: 2nd

Pol Roger, another reliable go-to Champagne: nice, held together well, but on the verge of being cloyingly sweet: 3rd.

Nicholas Feuillatte, which we'd enjoyed the once we'd had it by itself: kind of dirty and incoherent. 4th.

Piper Sonoma Brut, a California wannabe we snuck in to see if we could get away with something at 1/3 to 1/2 the price of the others: A little sour, not particularly complex or coherent -- I continue to consider it an excellent Mimosa bubbly. 5th

Louis Roederer Brut Premier: Yummy. Subtly complex, notes of vanilla, perhaps backed by a bit of pear. A coherent (even though complex) oneness of flavor, and all with a lighter overall aesthetic which is consistent with being enjoyable in its own right, but not necessarily distracting from a festive occasion. Never had it before, just grabbed a bottle based on some in-store blurbs (and, yeah, these guys do make Cristal).. Delightful. 1st.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:45pm Paul:

Really excellent show tonight - had to write down lots of names.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:47pm Bruce:

Gonna get me some of that dirty and incoherent bubbly
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:48pm Jeff M:

About Buckets of Rain:

a) Dave Van Ronk's name alway reminds me of those Alligator Records catalogs I never paid enough attention to.

b) Have you ever heard the version by Redbird?
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:50pm G:

Jeff, it's good to see someone is willing to tough it out in the interests of scientific knowledge.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:53pm Jeff M:

That's me. Always spewing in the troughs of The Scientific Method.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:54pm texas scott:

want knowledge,G?
just wait'll the next show...
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:57pm monica:

ok, you crazee kids, imma get ready to exit stage left. thanks SO much for hangin' tonight!! hope you come back next week. have a great week!!
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:58pm texas scott:

hugs and kisses,dj.
  Sun. 7/12/09 8:59pm Jeff M:

Now I'm trying to remember whether Top Cat exited stage left or right.
  Sun. 7/12/09 9:30pm mike tp:
