Happy Birthday Monica! It's a little scary. I'm 11 months away from that 60 number I'm sure your way short of that figure. I still ski, surf and ride a smokin' hot sport bike. There will be no dust under my feet when I go. Probably just a long blood trail.

  Sun. 12/27/09 8:24pm Jeff M:

That opening organ riff in "The Nearness of You" reminded me of when there used to be cocktail lounges with an organ player. Dark room, deep red button-tufted vinyl bench seating, and what I assume must've been a Hammond organ driving a display of colors.
  Sun. 12/27/09 8:27pm david from ks.:

  Sun. 12/27/09 8:45pm Jeff M:

The harmonies of The Dinning Sisters are just making me melt.

Hey, are those some fancy modulations, or is this gin drink modulating me?
  Sun. 12/27/09 8:45pm Not-?:

  Sun. 12/27/09 9:00pm annie:

now we have to hear "send in the clowns"
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:00pm Jeff M:

Wow, those are some different versions.

Is it mean to mention that when I heard the first few words from Bea Arthur, the first thing through my mind was... "Is that something from Howard Crabtree's 'When Pigs Fly'"? The second was... "No, the voice is too low for any of those boys."
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:03pm monica:

jeff m, yer not kiddin' they're different!...annie, goin' out a bit melodramz...THANKS EVERYBODY FOR MAKING THIS A FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY!!! Much love, peace, and good health in 2010. See ya next week!!!

  Sun. 12/27/09 9:03pm Irwin:

This Stritch monolog & song redeem all the bad programming on WFMU for the past six months.
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:04pm Jeff M:


Is that from "At Liberty"?

I'm trying to find a great picture Matt Peyton took of her...
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:05pm "Bea":

Elaine and I studied drama at the New School together back in the day. When Marlon was there.
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:08pm m009e:

they've determined there *was no* bad programming here in the past 6 months.
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:11pm Jeff M:



Silly Flash gallery... no way to do a direct link that I can figure. As of today, ES is image 96/145 in the above gallery.

I asked Matt, "How do you get Elaine Stritch to laugh like that?"

He said: "Tell her a really filthy joke."
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:13pm Clue:

Elaine's uncle was the Archbishop of Chicago...
  Sun. 12/27/09 9:19pm Samuel Cardinal Stritch:

I bet that silly "Jeff M" didn't know about me, did he?

  Sun. 12/27/09 9:45pm Jeff M:

That's entirely true, Your Deceased Cardinalship.
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:44pm texas scott:
