  Sun. 9/2/12 7:16pm Cold Sesame Noodles:

Betty was a notorious hard-ass on her band. A real pill. I love hearing her pull off these totally sublime swinging moments knowing that in the back of her mind, she's probably fuming about something or other. What a talent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 7:19pm monica:

Cold Ses Noo - the proof is in the puddin'! she probably had to work harder to be taken seriously by the fellas. just heard this track track today and loves it.
  Sun. 9/2/12 7:21pm texas scott:

this MB track is delish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 7:24pm monica:

  Sun. 9/2/12 7:28pm CB2:

Have to confess - love the striped panties.
  Sun. 9/2/12 7:29pm Joe Mulligan:

I'm digging that new Group Rhoda, and I love EVERY version of September Song. Great show Monica!

This Junior Wells is killer! I don't know if he ripped off Slim Harpo's "Buzzin" or vice-versa, nor do I much care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 7:46pm monica:

Yo, matt!! only you would know that ref...
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:04pm CB2:

I'm sure there are a number of Queens listening, Mo
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:05pm Polish Empanada:

Ridgewood, Queens in da hey-ouse!!
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:07pm caribou belenciaga:

I'm from Queens.
GOT OUT OF THERE as fast as I could.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:08pm monica:

CB2 - Flushing Queens!... Polish Empanada! Yay! Stopped at Mama's Empanadas on Greenpoint the other day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:08pm monica:

caribou belenciaga - well, there goes the neighborhood...
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:15pm Lumpy:

Ridgewood Queens here too. It's okay in Ridgewood (L train, affordable) but a little boring. You are correct that Sunnyside is a prime spot for dog owners -- Woodside too. It's very nice over there -- I could see living there myself. Woodside apartments are a little small for the money. The 7 train is great (cuts across Manhattan similar to the L and connects all over the place) but when it's not running because of track work, that would be rough. Also, it's nice to be near the 7 (but not too near - it's loud within a block or so). Basically, Queens is not considered cool by the college kids, so it's relatively affordable. I'm only a few blocks over the border in Ridgewood and I can tell you that borders like this are pretty arbitrary, while quality of life and affordability issues are not. I like Jackson Heights too, but a lot more density than Woodside/Sunnyside. In Brooklyn, maybe try Prospect/Lefferts gardens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:20pm monica:

Lumpy, thanks so much for breakin' it down. Absolutely NO need for cool college kids or their older ilk. Give me amenities and an easy commute and closets!!!!
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:21pm dale:

monica - queens? queens - monica? i dunno if butter will dig the low rise life. and won't the guys at the gas station/quickmart across the avenue miss her?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:26pm monica:

they will, dale, they will. but a bitch gotta move on...
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:30pm dale:

sing it mo!
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:32pm gail:

Lived in Sunnyside for years. Sunnyside Gardens is nice. Esp. the further away from Queens Blvd Lots of trees and commons
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:34pm dale:

fran was in playboy in the late 70s, early 80s. was she married to haymes? think she played naughty with elvis too
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:35pm Doug S.:

I really love that Dick El Demasiado stuff. I was chuffed to rip copies of both of the discs in FMU library when I breezed through town in July.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:36pm monica:

gail! it's beautiful, thanks for checking in, lady... dale- yes! dick haymes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/2/12 8:38pm monica:

Doug S.! wow! this one just landed this week, very cool stuff indeed....
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:40pm Fiveash:

You know, just yesterday I was on hold with a credit card company and the hold music was a lame version of "Ain't We Got Fun". You haven't experienced true humiliation until you're on hold with a credit card company that's giving you the runaround while someone sings "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer" in your ear! Anyway, thanks Mo, this version helps in my recovery from that trauma...
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:40pm Chris T.:

And it's a place with a great song: "Keep on the Sunnyside, always on the Sunnyside..." Listening in the 'hawk (Weehawken, NJ).
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:41pm listener gary:

hola. d j monica ...You know, I always meant to tell you this ...you may play margaret whiting any time you wish. (DO NOT move to queens.)
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:41pm Doug S.:

You mean there's a THIRD Dick El D record?! Guess I gotta swing back into town.
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:43pm texas scott:

  Sun. 9/2/12 8:49pm Chris T.:

Perfect Labor Day Eve = sitting around drinking Coney Island beer while listening to Monica!

  Sun. 9/2/12 8:52pm Nikki:

Hi Monica, I'm listening from my desk at work in Melbourne, Australia. Your making Monday morning that little bit easier, really loving the show, ta.
  Sun. 9/2/12 8:53pm Doug S.:

My heart melted with that Eddie J cut. Someone can just suck it up with a straw.

This is crazy, but I just downloaded Dorothy Ashby's "Afro-Harping" about two hours ago.

Hello, Miss Mon. Listening to the archive, as usual. This week's touchstone GIF is adorable and terrifying at the same time.
