I am SO ready for this. Who better to do this show than you, Monica?
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:07pm Cold Sesame Noodles:

C'mon Sunday evening denizens, give it up for Monica and pledge to FMU in support of Monica's amazing show.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:07pm cb1:

Can't say I knew who she was. But very happy to make her acquaintance.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:08pm Don (trip dub):

Wanted to be the first to say - who better than a trailblazer to give tribute to a trailblazer.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:18pm bruceleh:

Monica, for sure I'm gonna rip this and play @ the Park Slope Food Coop my upcoming shift this Saturday!
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:18pm Alf from Upstate:

  Sun. 10/2/11 7:25pm Roy Boy:

Love is strange, all right. Told my son I loved him in the psych ward and he said "Suck my dick." Parenthood--helluva lot harder than it looks.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:26pm Davice:

Thankyou for the wonderful Sunday night music!
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:28pm Dan:

So many great Robinson tracks, though I think my fave will always be "Not on the Outside." Thanks for this show, Monica.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:30pm monica:

  Sun. 10/2/11 7:36pm Dan Charnas:

Sosa! It's me (while trying to put my two year old son to bed)
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:37pm Roy Boy:

Yeah, unfortunately, I have to be the adult in the relationship, that's kind of the way it goes. He's in a lot more pain than me, that's what I have to remember.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:39pm Frank Sosa:

Charnas! We must talk. I've got myself a 21 month old daughter!
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:41pm Roy Boy:

Enjoy 'em while they're young, folks! Teen years are no picnic.

  Sun. 10/2/11 7:45pm Don (trip dub):

Hey Charnas - F-bomb here. Admired your work for some time.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:46pm Parq:

Managed to make it home for most of it, but I'm still gonna grab the first part on the archives, and probably listen to the rest of it all over. You are *so* the right person to be doing this show!
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:47pm Steve M.:

  Sun. 10/2/11 7:48pm Frank Sosa:

I've tried to get mine to go down to music and it never works. Maybe make an exception for Monica's show tonight. It's a scorcher. I'm bout to piss off the neighbors. Luckily it's not even 5 p.m. here in Oakland.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:48pm Brian C.:

Llove Linda Jones! And so do Gladys Knight and Evelyn Champagne King. Monica, knew you would not forget her!<3 Or Donnie Elbert.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:49pm Steve M.:

Donnie Elbert track always reminds me of 88th Street.
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:49pm Gary Harris:

You are getting it in! Linda Jones? Hypnotized was crazy! I'm listening to you, and writing my blog. Btw, Community Baptist is a 10 minute walk from the crib I lived in as a kid. Keep doing your ting xo :-)
  Sun. 10/2/11 7:52pm monica:

Hey, what happened to Eldridge Cleaver? Did the pigs storm the studio and cut him off him?
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:01pm ratbone:

  Sun. 10/2/11 8:02pm Dan Charnas:

Dilla.. of course. Whenever I can't remember who sampled something, it's usually because I heard it in Dilla's oevre
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:03pm Dan Charnas:

Peace to Garry Harris and my ol' mentor Brian Chin!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:03pm Don (trip dub):

Wow. Hey Brian. I believe we sat next to each other at the Garden at a Fania all-star show! I like those Rock your boat tracks and Psyche Soul of George Kerr.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:05pm miketp:

grindin coffee
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:05pm Dominick:

  Sun. 10/2/11 8:06pm Gary Harris:

What up Dan! As mentors go, you could have done a lot worse than Brian Chin. George Kerr? Wow! I've known George for 30 years and have never heard him sing.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:08pm Brian C.:

Hi Gary, I was just remembering how they used the uno-dos-tres from the Gil Scott-Heron original in the bootleg edit of "Love is the Message."
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:08pm Dan Charnas:

Monica, will you be telling some personal stories? ;-) Tin Pan Apple? "No Sell Out"?
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:09pm Dan Charnas:

Wife says: "Gemini. That makes sense."
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:10pm Gary Harris:

Brian- A classic.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:11pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

GREAT set Monica !!!! ... as always of cause ...
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:13pm mr c:

Did the Chief Rocker do a single for them? I think so. Keep on.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:17pm Gary Harris:

Monica- Preach, baby! Litigiousness! Dope word, and so accurate. Lol
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:17pm trssh:

Interesting, good listen. Great talk to go with the music, Monica.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:18pm Brian C.:

Gary -- a class act, truly. D'Angelo owes you dinner...maybe his dinner.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:19pm monica:

hi mr. c! no, he didn't. but she borrowed some of his raps in "pillow talk" he DID break that record. thanks, tom bac. and trssh...
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:20pm Brian C.:

Man, Jesus Alvarez could really dance in those platform shoes!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:22pm Gary Harris:

Brian- D would have been ok without having met me. I just let him do his thing. But thank you, old friend.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:22pm Don (trip dub):

When I was covering the AES show still at the Waldorf, over a Klipsch speaker in the Stereo Review room there it was in all its glory for the first time 'Rappers Delight'. Me and the rest of the room, mesmerized, stopped cold, and listened.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:25pm Brian C.:

Gloria Spencer, 600 pounds of Gospel Soul on Jay Walking records!With BV by songwriter Dee Dee Sharp Gamble.Produced by Philadelphia great Bobby Martin.

  Sun. 10/2/11 8:31pm Debbie D:

I used to couple skate to this song at Olympia Skate Center in Macon Ga!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:32pm Brian C.:

So who remembers when Laura Nyro covered "Sexy Mama" on her 1975 album "Smile?"
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:32pm Doug S:

Love on a two-way rink!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:32pm Dan Charnas:

Probably her greatest song. But (folks weigh in on this please) did she write it, or did she "write" it?
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:34pm monica:

damn, i got some pros on the board tonight!! you all rock!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:34pm Gary Harris:

Brian- I missed that one. I do remember her album w/Light Pops Principle on it.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:35pm cb1:

Mo, Just lovin EVERY track. Yay!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:35pm michael c:

amazing show! thanks monica. how did sugar hill get the rights to "good
time?" any stories about that?
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:38pm Dan Charnas:

  Sun. 10/2/11 8:41pm Dan Charnas:

the studio burning down was a BIG blow to Sylvia's psyche, according to her sister
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:46pm Dan Charnas:

I'm a little late on this part of the discussion, but yeah, "seminal" — kind of a sexist and ironic term to describe a woman's contributions. What would the female equivalent be? "Ovoal?" [Again, my wife chimes in: "The female equivalent is 'germinal'" She's brilliant.]
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:47pm monica:

dan, thanks for chiming in. yeah, musta been her baby....thank you, michael c!...and you too, cbuno!... gary, what's lady b up to these days? ...brian, any other info i need to cram in here??? thanks debbie d and bruceleh!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:48pm Gary Harris:

Dan- Which studio? They both burned down.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:49pm Mike Sin:

Completely enjoying this show. Great job, Monica!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:50pm Dan Charnas:

West Street. The big one downtown Englewood, the L-shaped one.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:50pm Gary Harris:

Monica- B just had a 30th anniversary show in Philly last month. And make no mistake about it, We Got The Funk was so official!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:51pm Gary Harris:

Dan- Oh, the one where I worked. Which sister, Diane?
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:52pm mr c:

Here's to Rowena Harris, ace all promotion wunderkund!!
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:53pm Brian C.:

Garage classic "We Got the Funk" one of the very few times Sylvia returned to disco after Sugar Hill Gang hit. Viola Wills "Gonna Get Along Without You Now" was the other.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:53pm mr c:

For Sylvia and Joe, that is.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:54pm Don (trip dub):

One more memory about Flash & Furious 5. They killed in the '84 NO Jazzfest. Again the audience was mesmerized.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:55pm Dan Charnas:

@Gary: Yes, Diane.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:56pm monica:

  Sun. 10/2/11 8:56pm Don (trip dub):

I think this was an answer to Mel Brooks 'It's Good to be the King.' Not sure.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:57pm Bob:

Earlier song played "you broke my heart so I broke your jaw". This was later the title of a Spooky Tooth album featuring Gary Wright of the "Dream Weaver" hit fame.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:58pm Gary Harris:

Don (trip dub) It was.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:58pm michael c:

love is strange, so great in badlands
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:59pm Parq:

oh, Loverboyyyy ...
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:59pm Don (trip dub):

@ Gary Thx. Did the Mickey Baker Learn to play guitar full under Joe and Sylvia's labels? You need to do a part 2, Monica. Excellent tribute.
  Sun. 10/2/11 8:59pm Debbie D:

  Sun. 10/2/11 9:00pm monica:
