Nothing like a little bit of ska to jump-start the day. Hi Amanda!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:06pm Amanda:

Hi everyone! Welcome listeners both young and old, and new and old. UM, thanks for the tech help today. What is my ticket number?
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:07pm pacific standard simon:

I have just been assured that I am going to Buddhist heaven for my humane spider eviction techniques.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:09pm Uncle Michael:

Amanda, you're always number one.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:09pm Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of Buddhist restraint—no cicada sightings in Pittsburgh. I hear the NYC/NJ invasion has begun. (I'm lookin' at you, Staten Island.)
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:10pm Uncle Michael:

Cicadas make me miss our old dog Buster. He assured us they were the yummiest thing EVER.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:10pm fleep:

Buddhist restraint sounds like some sort of Zen handcuffs.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:11pm Lizardner Dave:

I haven't seen or heard any on Staten Island but my part of the East Shore got a nice dose of seawater and sewage backup from Sandy so I imagine that cut down the population in my neighborhood.

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:14pm Amanda:

I bet that cicadas to a dog are like hard-shell tacos or something similarly yummy.

Shoutout (typeout) to the Golden Cicada bar here in Jersey City. Maybe they'll have a festival?
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:15pm pacific standard simon:

Or chocolate truffles.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:18pm fleep:

Nice choice.

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:21pm pacific standard simon:

I experienced the Kansas cicada invasion of 1980 -- if you forgot to take the box fan out of the window when it was off, the bugs would get trapped in your room and fly around every so often, screeching like Diamanda Galas.

...well - Zenmasters hit students w/ stix to keep them Awake
...cuffs can't be far behind...

The Golden Cicada may be some kind of mating vessel for the little buggers.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:28pm Skirkie:

Tom mentioned The Golden Cicada last night, now I'm in the mood to go.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:28pm Uncle Michael:

Did Randy Newman write that jingle...or just sue whoever did?

Ed's Redeeming Qualities Blog will apparently wait as well :)

back shortly...
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:32pm dvx:

Those old jingles were designed for their staying power in the mind.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Cicadas have landed in NY Mag: nymag.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:40pm Carmichael:

This is either Tori Amos or David Bowie.

'ello What's occuring.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:47pm pacific standard simon:

Heigh-ho. I have a job interview this afternoon. To make soup, salad and sandwiches for lunchtime downtown office workers. No mo' graveyard shift, but no mo' FMU at work, neither.

'ello and welcome, Brian in UK!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:49pm Carmichael:

Oh Man, I love G. Love.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:51pm Amanda:

PS Simon, that sounds like a pretty fun job anyway. If there was only some way to listen to FMU at the same time it would be great work for that...
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 12:52pm Brian in UK:

If you like Ska & Kooban music. Try Ska Cubano.
Got a lovely piece of halibut for tea tonight. Mmmmmm.

morning/afternoon Amanda and everyone!

Bobby Sherman is a ARTIST and should be TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

Hello bob.

Fuschia is OK.

Turning on, tuning in etc.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:10pm Amanda:

Let's hope the stream does not "drop out." Eh? Eh???
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:13pm Doug Schulkind:

I wasn't a drop-out, I just took 30 years off between my junior and senior year. (True story.)
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:15pm Stanley:

Nice one Doug...I wish I could have 30 years off.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:16pm Stanley:

... or be a person of leisure.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:20pm Van in DC:

@Doug - I'm kind of in the same boat. Still going though. Hi Amanda, Doug, peoples.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:20pm Amanda:

Hi there, Van!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:21pm Stanley:

Halibut eh, Brian?
That's it, I'm definitely going round the ol' chippy tonight
(After the show, of course)
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:23pm Uncle Michael:

30 years and counting here.

I'm totally playing my favorite Bobby Sherman song...soon.

Good luck, Simon!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:26pm Stanley:

All together now...oo,oo,oooo
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:26pm Rich in Washington:

Hey! It's that phone commercial song!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:26pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks, Michael. Thankfully, I can put off shaving until after Amanda's show.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:28pm pacific standard simon:

There's those high notes!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:29pm ndbob:

actually my heat is on - though much nicer tomorrow
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:29pm Van in DC:

Brian in UK @ 12:56 - was that a reference to Harps Of Fuchsia Kalmia by chance...? I've thought they are awesome ever since hearing Doug play them before.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:31pm Stanley:

@Van - I dunno, Brian can be pretty cryptic
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:33pm Doug Schulkind:

I loved Artisanal Popsicle's early records. Before they sold out.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:34pm Rich in Washington:

I am scared to buy anything edible from someone with a big, waxy hipster moustache, artisanal or not.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:35pm Uncle Michael:

Wait...they're sold out of posicles? But...I heard bells...grrr
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:35pm pacific standard simon:

Cicada recipes from the University of Maryland:

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:37pm Amanda:

@Rich, I am of a similar mind, but the TMBG told me that he wasn't such a hipster after all; he was being true to himself.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:40pm pacific standard simon:

Anyone ever hear Alex perform this song post-Box Tops?
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:41pm Rich in Washington:

@Amanada: It's hard to tell the difference in Portland OR but TMBGs is a pretty good indicator of genuine coolness.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:43pm Amanda:

I hear that! And I hasten to add that it's possible to be hip and cool at the same time, though I myself have never mastered that combo.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:44pm Amanda:

For me it's like patting your head and rubbing your belly at the same time.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:45pm pacific standard simon:

You can ring my Bell.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:46pm Uncle Michael:

Hip is pretty uncool, if you ask me.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:46pm ndbob:

I like it when the cicadas are around.. none anywhere near here - I was living in Maryland when Brood X was around in 2004
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:46pm Stanley:

@Amanda - I get ya but being unhip and cool is actually the real cool.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Did Ray just say "cicadas"?
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:47pm Parq:

On the subject of being cool and hip, this here is pretty much my biography:

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:48pm pacific standard simon:

I've always settled for "quirky".
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:48pm Uncle Michael:

Alan O'Day has moved on. He's finally going to meet his Undercover Angel.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:49pm Brian in UK:

@Van it was more Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast. The 77th Earls daughter was called Fuschia. In fact Sting liked the books so much that he called his daughter by that name.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:49pm northguineahills:

Got here just in time for the Box Tops!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:51pm Stanley:

...and I just planted a bunch in the window boxes, yesterday.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:52pm ndbob:

I read Titus Groan long ago but never made it to the other Gormenghast books
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:53pm Brian in UK:

@Stanley, I am as straight as the day is long, guv. If I was Coptic I would be living in Egypt. Oh Mummy where art thou.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:54pm Brian in UK:

@ndbob The BBC did a wonderful adaptation a year or two ago. Wonder if UbuWeb has it.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:54pm Amanda:

Sad about Alan O'Day, he was pretty young. At least he seemed so when I saw him play keyboards at the Ponderosa Stomp a couple of years ago. (Not for himself, though they let him sing a couple of bars of "Undercover Angel."
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:56pm ndbob:

excellent show Amanda!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:56pm Brian in UK:

Good luck Simon this afternoon.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:57pm Uncle Michael:

No dammit...no! OK...*fine*. Great show, Amanda. Thank you.

Goodbye music...

Great stuff guys.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 1:58pm Doug Schulkind:
