Come on all you cowboys - CONGA!
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:23pm CB2:

In the mood for a good Conga Line.

Just in and listening on a lap top - better than nuttin'.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:27pm monica:

  Sun. 5/1/11 7:31pm Fiona DeWitt:

Speaking of THE WEDDING.

What about Fergie's two gals - did you see the shot with grandma yellow hat below and Edward behind - fairy tale evil step sisters or what?
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:32pm CB2:

CB1 - is a cha cha a conga too?
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:35pm annie:

my friend marcie.. when she went off to the big dance in the sky.. we played pink floyd and mozart.. her parents were shocked at the PF..
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:37pm Jeff M:

Definitely "Sing Sing Sing" by Benny Goodman and the crew at the '38 Carnegie Hall Concert.

That rocks harder than anything done since, really. Rock doesn't rock that hard.

Krupa, man, Krupa.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:38pm Domenic M:

on my last will and playlist...
I would at least need to add

Papiro's Assenze Di Gravita
at least one Scott Walker tune...ummmmmmm...

this is a hard but hardly unenjoyable
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:38pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Monica and all the listeners.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:42pm annie:

can i just have a deejay from fmu come play?
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:42pm cheri:

monica my picks would have to be "YOU CAN HAVE HIM" OR "ANNABELLE CLARK" by the cake my all time personal favorites,,,,
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:42pm Mariano:

Hi Monica, Richard, et al! Perfect music for the kind of day it is here in Brooklyn.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:44pm CB2:

Mo, you made me stop and think on this one.

I would like Eddie Monsoon to sing "BIrd on a Wire".
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:46pm CB1:

CB2 - That's a great choice! I'm thinking Ellen McIlwaine would have to be in there doing "Can't Find My Way Home."
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:49pm CB2:

CB1- Come on tell the best one yet - you know the one!

PS just connected the Klipsch to the laptop.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:50pm CB1:


Did we mention this is a truly lovely show you are doing?
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:54pm Jeff M:

Maybe... even though it isn't exactly the story of my own life - the Brecht/Weill Nanna's Lied.

...which is - among all the heartbreakingly beautiful German-language songs sung from the point of view of a woman who's been a prostitute since age 17 - my favorite.

Maybe the version sung by Teresa Stratas.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:54pm CB2:

Now you got me up dancin' and swayin'. And I should be cookin'.

Amen, Sister!
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:55pm diego:

  Sun. 5/1/11 7:56pm Mariano:

Ooh! Mo: what album is Choro from? Love it!
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:58pm Don (trip dub):

Hey now - in time for the Boogie Woogie mombo.
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:59pm Domenic M:

Lloyddy Lloyd the Magician!
  Sun. 5/1/11 7:59pm monica:

evenin' mariano, diego, Richard from Venezuela, fiona, annie, js+yt. my final playoff would include "that's where the happy people go" by the trammps.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:05pm CB2:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:05pm diego:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:06pm Don (trip dub):

They can play me off by something by Maceo or Fred any day.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:07pm diego:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:08pm cheri:

monica---don'tcha just love the cake?? you know that I do!!! well nite mo,,
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:08pm listener gary:

Benny Goodman with Peggy Lee: We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when ...and Fantasia on Greensleeves, Ralph Vaughn Williams. And if time permits ...It's all in the game with what's his name. Best ...
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:09pm CB2:

You know, Mama did her playlist right before the neck operation. I lost it and then found it recently - ends with "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and she wants everyone singin' it.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:10pm Sidonia Lettrichova:

I want this as my last rembrance.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:16pm Don (trip dub):

There must be something afoot or in the air about such a business as it was alluded but not chrystalized by another DJ of renown. I will divulge offline or on the comment board - as you like.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:18pm diego:

JMB cut fresh; heard the new grey album?
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:20pm Sidonia Lettrichova:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:22pm Rutger de Ruyter:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:30pm diego:

  Sun. 5/1/11 8:30pm Rutger de Ruyter:

You gotta do that more often, Monica- throw a little nibble of harsh into the mellowmix... just to keep us on our toes...
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:31pm Jeff M:

I have survived hatch duty. Back in the comfy chair in front of the stereophonic loudspeakers.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:35pm fred galahad:

Blossom Dearie ... qui a été si l'album à partir de?
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:45pm andy s:

"might as well be spring" what a great song. i think i was introduced to it i think by that dennis potter bbc thing "the singing detective" wherein the narrator/child's cuckolded father sings it. should watch that again. really good tv. thanks for a great show.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:46pm Mariano:

Oh wow, Monica: Ever heard Johnny Adams' version of Reconsider Me?!?
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:47pm monica:

hi dave b, oh yes....hola andy s.! yes, and she kills it. so nice to have you here... mariano, love his version. margaret lewis wrote this song!
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:48pm Mariano:

Wow, had no idea! Always an education on FMU!
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:48pm Richard from Venezuela:

sorry for the off topic question but wfmu's The Music Faucet archives with Jeff Buckley aren't available because the imperial hand of columbia records?
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:50pm monica:

R from V, so sorry but I'm not aware of the circumstances there....
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:52pm Jeff M:

Mmm, am I a happy boy. Kathryn came back from her errands with brisket from the local BBQ joint, Monica's on the radio, and Ted the Dog is resting his chin on my leg. I choose to believe that the latter is about my magnetic personality rather than the brisket.
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:52pm Dave B:

ce tres magnifique,Monica!

(Je suis étudiant et en pratiquant le français ...)
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:53pm Richard from Venezuela:

Didn't realize it was over so soon.

Ah Ladytron! Gotta love the oboe
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:59pm seang:

"I would do anything for you"--cool tune DJ Monica
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:59pm monica:

Jeff M, sounds like a good deal. Big hugs to K and T... Merci, Dave B... Thanks R from V, yes am feeling it tooo... Thank you, CB1!... And Mizz Annie....And CB2.... and JON - in under the wire. See you all next week!!! MWAH!!!
  Sun. 5/1/11 8:59pm Jeff M:

Gaaa, the time has flown! Two hours just isn't enough when you're in a musical trance-state.
  Sun. 5/1/11 9:01pm dividend:

I love the way Monica just led us into Roxy... good programming!
  Mon. 5/2/11 12:14am Cold Sesame Noodles:

Can't wait to devour the archive. Was out on the burgh and missed you live.
  Tue. 5/3/11 4:14pm Parq:

Listening on the archives on Tues 5/3. Would it be terribly unimaginative of me to ask for Chopin's Funeral March, played well by a good pianist? Best to you and Miss B
  Sat. 5/7/11 5:14am nmm:

Reel Ten by The Plugz as people leave my funeral service. I think that's called the Postlude.
