Hi, Mo. Need some of your soothing music tonight. Just discovered stem borers on the lily plants. Worst part - only solution is DESTROY the plants. Depressing. Especially since they are in bud.....

Avatar Sun. 6/30/13 7:56pm deanland:

I visited a world renowned fortune teller many years ago who (correctly) told me that my then-wife was NOT the love of my life. I knew she was right. I wondered if it was really the dog I had at the time. The dog is gone, the marriage is over, but I did meet and marry Mrs. Yankfan, the true love of my life. Finally in the land of the free (as in freely monitored by the NSA, et al) people can marry for love and ignore the ignorant who disagree. That, of course, includes Scalia and his dog Clarence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/30/13 7:57pm G:

Companion animals are picky about marriage. They don't want to end trapped or anything.

The Funkadelic version of Get to That was one of the first 45's I ever bought, maybe 1971

  Sun. 6/30/13 8:50pm Marc Grobman:

Hi Monica, really liked the Mavis Staples version of Blues Heaven (Koko Taylor did years earlier.) But I write about stripper instructor Marie Bryant. I wonder if it's the same Marie Bryant who recorded "Tomato." ("Don't touch me tomato," in reference to that part of the female anatomoy.) It was a big hit in 1950s Jamaica; my otherwise fairly conservative mother in law used to sing it when doing housework. Her version of "Tomato" has been reissued; I'm sure the FMU library has it if you want to play it some day. I only have it on a Lyragon label 78: the flip side of the record, "Rhumboogie Anna," is pretty good too.And speaking of pretty good, your show surpasses that--it's great! Thank you for all the great tunes. Best, Marc

Yeah, any German-speakers here? 'Cause I'm not one, but the few syllables I thought my ear caught of MD's "Surrey" made me think the lyrics had been completely reinvented. I thought I was catching the word for snow in the refrain, but my ear can't be trusted.

It's hard to translate lyrics anywhere close to literally when you have a successful melody you need to stick to. Redoing lyrics to hit a similar theme is a common solution.

Thanks for another great show Monica. Most excellent selection as ever.
