Leave it Monica's show too cool off a muggy day!
  Sun. 8/23/09 7:10pm Jeff M:

Yo, Mo.

Your show is so Monifique that when I saw it had gone 7PM, I even ejected early from from Jarrett/Peacock/DeJohnette doing their extended Autumn Leaves.

I wonder if it was going to turn out the same as the last time.
  Sun. 8/23/09 7:11pm depilatrix:

Although I'll still try to pass you some newish music which sounds like it could be old.
  Sun. 8/23/09 7:49pm Queen of the Hill:

  Sun. 8/23/09 8:05pm rachel jansen:

happy late summer all
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:07pm Kelly:

Driving is SO SCARY (at first). The only way to get good at is TO DRIVE. Like DJ Bronwyn says...the more you do it the more you do it and the less you do it the less you do it.
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:08pm rachel jansen:

monica,,how was your summer??
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:08pm texas scott:

DJ Bronwyn is wise like that.
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:10pm texas scott:

hey mo,still collecting,i see
future premium?
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:11pm rachel jansen:

  Sun. 8/23/09 8:15pm texas scott:

stuff that cake up yer ass,MISTER.rachel
don't you understand the concept of this show,,,or any other show,for that matter?
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:16pm monica:

hi anne, rox is the bestest! thanks for tuning in... sugarwolf, you are so funny, glad you liked the charo... hey kelly, thanks for the support, lady!!!.... b'wyn is right bout dat... TS, always stockpiling or, more accurately, hoarding.... c'mon rach, you know the answer to that question, stay cool, hope your summer is going well...
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:26pm denis:

Hi Monica! Would you by any chance have more info on that track identified as Track 1 by Meri Von Kleinsmid...I know her as an electro avant-garde artist, so the inclusion of that woman preaching seemed unusual for Meri... but I loved it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:28pm monica:

hi denis, sure.. it's on a CD called chi-tape on american archive recordings. all air checks from urban stations in chicago... crazy and great...
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:33pm Jeff M:

Eventually, after all the Cake-pimping, I got curious enough to try to look 'em up. If I got the right group, it seems like a band with someone named Greg Brown in it, which got me kind of interested... but no, it's not the real Greg Brown, it's some other Greg Brown. Meh.
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:37pm texas scott:

Miss Universe Pageant on 2nite.
i vote for miss afghanistan!
only because...well you know.
even you, mister rachel....

float on, miss monica
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:40pm denis:

Thank you! Just discovered your show 30 minutes ago browsing on the NPR application for the iPhone....and WOW!!! The depth, diversity and quality of your song selection is amazing. You obviously know your music. Listening in from Montreal, Canada and loving it. Will be browsing your previous playlists and will pay attention to your future shows...and good luck for your driving lessons!
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:41pm rachel j.:

monica--i was just wondering why you havn't played the cake all summer,,is it cause you're tired of the cd?? if so,,i understand,,see you next week,
  Sun. 8/23/09 8:42pm sugarwolf:

  Sun. 8/23/09 8:44pm texas scott:

  Tue. 8/25/09 3:27pm trusg:

Monica, if you were program director or station manager or something like that, I'd more likely expect a good chunk of new.

And the new-old music you play on this show is a lotta new to me.
  Tue. 8/25/09 3:36pm Johnc:

I love your shows. They are FREEFORM goodness. Us Monica fans enthusiastically support your choosing not to conform to someone else's direction! YAY MONICA! We love you!
