  Sun. 12/4/11 7:33pm blujacket:

  Sun. 12/4/11 7:34pm Nashville Noah:

  Sun. 12/4/11 7:43pm Tir Chonail Abu:

I love that crush story my first famous crush was princess leia and I stress princess leia not carrie fisher, though my first crush was my old teacher mrs Taylor beautiful red hair lovely lady sadly died young.
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:44pm annie:

first crush?? the tv repair kid: he was 19 i was 10 ... i thought he was the hottest thing.. fast forward to the present: i was able to be with him and his a year ago, helping the family as she moved though her last days suffering from ALS. i still love him, but in a very deeper way..
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:45pm Gail:

my first crush was on Mighty Mouse
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:46pm Nashville Noah:

Early crushes: Julie Newmar and Lee Meriwether as Catwomen (I know typical), but what do you want from a kid who was way into comics and running around his yard with a towel around his neck thinking he was Batman. Bunch of years it was Pam Grier, OH, and my speech therapist when I was in 2nd grade, Miss Flowers!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:46pm frenchee:

the theme seems to be redheaded crushes!
I have had so many crushes, but one of the biggest and baddest was a certain chess-playing egghead named Nathan. Long beautiful red hair, freckled legs....
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:47pm anne:

hello from hyde park, Monica & everyones! no "official" internet connection yet but wfmu streams thru thank goodness. my first big crush was corey haim. i wrote him a 6 page letter about a dream i had and all i got back was a pre-printed postcard months later. i was so bummed, i expected so much more!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:47pm Nashville Noah:

Always nice to hear that Childish voice recorded to half track!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:48pm annie:

and ricky nelson!!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:48pm frenchee:

another redheaded crush (what the hell was I thinkin/drinkin?): Remember the J.Paul Getty heir who faked his own kidnapping, complete with ear dismemberment?
He's the father of Balthazaar Getty I believe and now he's dead.
I collected all the coverage of his kidnapping story
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:48pm monica:

Oh, Parq! tiny hedgehogs are the way to a gal's hart...Yes, Noah - he's amazing...HI, issac TJ, saludos to YOU...Annie, always great to have you in the house....Issac, found on Tumblr...
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:49pm frenchee:

Hey Noah, hey Parq! Tiny hedgehog hugs to all!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:49pm Don (trip dub):

Carolyn Jones - Beatnik all around in 'Hole in the Head', Body Snatchers, Kid Creole. Addams Family was icing on the cake. Guess you heard bout Hubert Sumlin.
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:50pm frenchee:

latest biggest crush: Barrence Whitfield...
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:50pm issac TJ:

  Sun. 12/4/11 7:51pm issac TJ:

  Sun. 12/4/11 7:54pm cb1:

First crush - a model in a Mennen deodorant ad- how embarrassing!
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:57pm monica:

Oh, REM, you card... Yo, Ken!... Oh, Tir, what would life be w/o a crush on teacher?...
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:58pm annie:

i also had a huge huge crush on my 8th grade english teacher...
  Sun. 12/4/11 7:59pm ex:

  Sun. 12/4/11 8:01pm CB2:

My cousin's boyfriend who was the quarterback for the football team; she was the head cheerleader.
She married him and had two kids, he became a drunk and fell in a stupor, broke the bottle, sliced his aorta and bled to death to be found by his shy awkward son who has never recovered.
Typical Southern story.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:02pm Lani:

Keep it comin'
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:02pm Marmalade kitty:

great photo Monica! what is the drink, anyone know?
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:03pm Tir Chonail Abu:

@issac TJ yeah know what you mean and Mo I'm seriously developing a crush on the playlist pic. My idea of a lady to know and I think I met her Polish double earlier today in a bar or at least a lady with her attitude.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:04pm Doug S.:

Other than my first-grade teacher, Miss Van Pool, my first crush was Maddy Prior of Steeleye Span.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:04pm diego:

after seeing billy graham speak at wheaton college i had a childhood crush on the devil
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:04pm cb1:

The gal in the pic looks a lot like Amy WInehouse.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:08pm issac TJ:

@Marmalade Kitty ... hopefully its a 40 OZ of beer. @Tir Chonal Abu ... now i just don't know, lately when I get to meet a girl that i think is cool or awesome, i just get dissapointed somehow. Also i will never make a mix cd for a girl that I like anymore
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:13pm dianska:

crush: Jim Palmer in those jockey underwear ads circa 1980
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:14pm monica:

frencheee!!.... gail, ladeee!!! OMG, ME TOOO!!! for real... hi EX!
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:16pm Curious:

Reflecting on the reponses so far: If a major value of celebrities seen via visual media is their crushworthiness, does this make them culture-wide paid flirts? If so, is that just a recent variation on the "oldest profession"?
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:17pm issac TJ:

no matter how older I get .... i still turn into a 13 year old nerd when it comes to approaching a girl that I really like.. when there isn't any alcohol around
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:17pm ex:

  Sun. 12/4/11 8:19pm Don (trip dub):

Lovely trippy groove this Honey and the Bees.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:20pm monica:

  Sun. 12/4/11 8:21pm Steve M.:

Didn't one of the "Gals" at The Baton do "How Glad I Am"?
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:22pm CB2:

SOTW - Ms. Bass?

Thank you.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:23pm Irw.:

What's all this blood and toilet paper nonsense?
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:23pm Marmalade kitty:

I know olde english very well ;) open your throat and pour for an instant cider blast!!!
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:23pm cb1:

CB2 - agreed!
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:24pm Curious:

Soemone asked about the bottle: It's a 40 oz Malt Liquor. Lookin kinda like Olde English 800. Not exactly upmarket, but potent fershurr.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:24pm CB2:

'Llo again, Miss Mon and gang. Busy in the kitchen, but real quick, the first crush I can remember was classic -- fourth grade teacher, in her early to mid twenties, who spoke French and drove a blue '66 Mustang *in '66*. With a great short haircut and an adorable face. Was Catholic school. 'Spect she married an insurance man and had five kids. Or maybe, just maybe, she went a little crazy, moved to San Francisco and became a classic 70s disco fag hag. It could have happened ..
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:46pm Marmalade kitty:

Jim Morrison!
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:48pm Ken in Arizona:

Monica - Can you pop the back door of your studio open for Ernie the engineer? He's locked out and called me here in Phoenix.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:50pm monica:

got it, ken! tell him to hold a sec.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:50pm Cops:

We've traced that call, ma'am -- and HE'S IN THE BUILDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:51pm CB2:

Told you not to open that door.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:54pm Parq:

How 'bout celeb crushes? First time (only time, come to think of it) I ever saw Camile O'Sullivan was one of those major "God in heaven, who's that?!" moments. And I stood in front of the stage at FMU's Ponderosa Stomp rockabilly show at Damrosch Park a few summers back, unable to take my eyes off Lori Collins.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:55pm Don (trip dub):

Who said technology hasn't helped the music industry. Great show as always.
  Sun. 12/4/11 8:55pm jbm:

  Sun. 12/4/11 9:00pm issac TJ:

the first song I heard by bob dylan was "you belong to me" when i was 14 or something ... sounded so horrible to my ears then
  Sun. 12/4/11 9:00pm jbm:

Real-world crushes: too many to mention without completely filling up the comments list, especially during those seemingly-endless years before I felt the touch of a woman (but after I realized I really really needed to).

Here's a powerful celebrity crush from my teen years: Angie Dickinson, whom I first saw on Police Woman - she SMOLDERED.
  Sun. 12/4/11 9:22pm neg-guh-tor:

Great show, Monica! Lovin' tonights vibe. Cheers!
