What's all that grumbling? Is that my stomach?

HI, all. Bard's been promoted to weatherman?

It's a cat with sleep apnea. Good evening, Monica!

That's me, grumbling about another Giants loss.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:03pm fleep:

An Esther Williams spectacular?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:05pm deanland:

Those opening sounds were quite reminiscent of the way it sounded as we left Yankee Stadium today, after seeing the unthinkable: Mariano blew a save. After a tremendous performance by Kuroda and one inning of wonder by Robertson. Oh, the humanity! Gary Burton, though, is soothing after so tough an afternoon.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:06pm Monica:

Hi there, Dave E, Parq, fleep, and pacific standard simon. Yep, a big cheetah.... and Esther!
  Sun. 7/7/13 7:06pm CB1:

Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:17pm G:

You in Buda? or Pest? :p
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:18pm davex:

Pest, not far from the Danube, Buda on the horizon.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:18pm deanland:

Wow, @pacific standard simon: Romo there (ouch, to the hated Dodgers) and Mariano here (to the detested Buckaroolioles). No wonder as I type this, Monica is playing The Blues.

Bet davex has an outstanding view.

It's true, there's nothing like the blues to salve a sorry baseball fan.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:23pm davex:

Simon, I do have an outstanding view, although it is dark out now. It's a working trip, though, so some less interesting views as well.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:24pm CB1:

Haven't heard Delaney and Bonnie in 30 years!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:24pm Monica:

sugarwolf! girl, how you doin'?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:27pm Dave E:

I can just imagine the birds dancing to this!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:27pm Monica:

CB1, love those old hippies....
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:28pm Monica:

agree, Dave E.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...parrots actually dance...which means I should drink wine now...my apt. is 86°F, reportedly 78°F outside & humidity 84%. Jolly.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:32pm Dave E:

RR: Don't know about parrots; I have seen plain old regular birds dancing. Maybe, I had too much wine?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- saw it in 'Parrots of Telegraph Hill' movie - speaking of S.F. ...

Singing, dancing... it's a bird's life! I've yet to see a bird do a back-flip, tho.

jeebus - i google magna carta album and the brit folk band that did 'seasons' and 'airport song' doesnt even come up any more. damn shifting culture!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...that's better than 'HipHopHillbillies' - which of course has been going on mostly unintentionally for @ least a generation...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:43pm davex:

Hey I think I heard someone sing this down the street today...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:44pm pacific standard simon:

I liked the theme from Justified well enough to buy it from Amazon.

good evening dj monica. Just tuned in. sorry I missed the charlie byrd.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:52pm Reeshard:

Once again checking Miz Mo's show from a Montréal hotel room, where work again brings me. Tough to reorient my Sunday schedule to Eastern standard Time, but glad I remembered in time. Love Chris Watson's field recordings.
  Sun. 7/7/13 7:52pm listener gary:

thought of you last week: went to see the local band concert. Much clashing of cymbels.

There' a storm a brewing in the NJ area - get under cover with the dancing birds!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:55pm sugarwolf:

Sounds like Maceo Parker arranged the horns. That's one name I never otherwise would have associated with the word, "Airedales."
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:58pm Dave E:

hey, what is this? nice tunes tonight Monique . . . thanks for bringing them to us!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:58pm Monica:

yep, deanland, does indeed... das right, fleep... dave e - really?.... thanks listener, gary!

Al Kooper, of Blues Project and BS&T fame (and organ on Dylan's Just Like A Woman) wrote Short Shorts, back when he was a teenager and lived in Springfield Gardens, Queens.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 7:59pm Reeshard:

Dr. Buzzard's...how wonderful! even more than the Kid & his Coconuts, they were NYC's musical home team.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

! - Thx deanland.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:01pm Reeshard:

Having said that, Dr. Buzzard's 'Calling All Beatniks' lp is among the weirdest, like maybe ever.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reading books about origins & history of Guitar
- this Hawaiian stuff must be acknowledged!
- Grateful to hear it here!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:03pm deanland:

Dr. Buzzard& The Savanna Rhythm Section was hysterical with their mention of Mariah Carey's future spouse on that one hit of theirs.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:04pm pacific standard simon:

Now this here Hawaiian music was some real bird-dancing music!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:06pm davex:

minor correction : al kooper played the organ on like a rolling stone.

Hip easy listening with Monica -- I like it.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...may i ask?: Who Produced that Carpenters?!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:14pm Parq:

I should add that, for a change, I am all dinnered. Mrs. Parq took over kitchen duties tonight. I was eating during the Totie, j'regret, because I had the sound turned down to eating-dinner level and did not catch most of it.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:15pm deanland:

Julie Newmar does Frank, right down to the snicker at the end!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...for a hot chick capping on her looks (?? - or one who could've @ least), JulieLondon made good records!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:16pm deanland:

Er, make that Julie London, not Julie Newmar.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:16pm Monica:

Parq!! Oh dear, did I overlook saying hello earlier? hi, glenn! dale, um, don't know... Howdy, Green Mountain Man Mark!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:19pm pacific standard simon:

AND... Julie was married to THE MAN - Mr Jack Webb hisself.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:19pm Parq:

No, great lady, you did not at all. I'm just noting that, for once, I am not banished to the kitchen during your show.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:20pm Parq:

Yes, Julie London and Jack Webb is one of those things I try not to think too hard about.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Noir perfection!...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the slightly smaller screen Beat version of BogartBacall...er something...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:25pm pacific standard simon:

I gots to banish myself to the kitchen pretty shortly. Pulled pork nachos for four!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:27pm deanland:

All Julie gave Jack was just the facts (ma'am).
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Are Donna Summer's tracks the sexiest in history?
- & yet she maintained dignity & class?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:28pm pacific standard simon:

And two kids.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:28pm pacific standard simon:

But don't tell Parq!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I didn't dare ask about kids!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:31pm Parq:

Oh, by the way, I saw the first-night preview of Damon Albarn's "Monkey; Journey to the West" last night. Well worth seeing, and hearing. Kind of amazing that it and "Tracy Jacks" came out of the same mind.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:31pm Parq:

PSS, you wound me.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:34pm dale:

what was french kissing from - koo koo?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:35pm pacific standard simon:

Virgin to slut? Success story!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:36pm deanland:

Offering was the name of the first Carpenters album (A&M) before they were known as The Carpenters.

Melting Butter.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:37pm deanland:

The troubled Karen was a very talented drummer, plus a wonderful singer. Richard was deeply hidden in the closet for years. Their handlers loved that people thought they were a couple, not siblings.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- that Carpenter'salbum:
- Produced by JackDaugherty:
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:43pm deanland:

Richard Carpenter went through many changes after Karen's death. Some years later he got married (a cousin or some distant relative) and had many kids. He remained a producer, but stayed (stays) largely out of the limelight.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:43pm deanland:

Hey! Monica is playing Megan from Mad Men!!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...just from 'Invocation' it is evident that JackD. - &/or, likely - RichardC. knew their damn way around an arrangement & the recording studio. Seems to me BrainWilson woulda been pleased w/ that!...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:46pm CB1:

I'm melting myself down . . .
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:46pm Monica:

Thanks, RevRab!... and yeah, right on, deanland!... pacific standard - oh hell yeah!... dale, from rock something or other...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:46pm Parq:

I don't know much about the Carps' inner history, having spent much of my youth joining my peers in scorning them. I just remember seeing one of those late-night commercials for a compilation of that stuff, illustrated with a series of videos for their hits. The thing is, the videos were in chronological order, and the viewer literally watched the poor kid dying, getting more gaunt and wizened with each on until finally, in the vid for that one with Sneaky Pete on steel-petal, she looked outright skeletal. Chilling.

Hey Mo - You like that Nile Rogers is on Daft Punk?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...who the hell had heard of anorexia back then?...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:49pm CB1:

Rev Rabbit - I thought she invented it...?
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:50pm dale:

when a friend hears a carpenters song he always says 'if only mama cass had shared that sandwich, they'd both be alive today.' WRONG, i know.....

" In her emaciated way, she ate herself to death today."
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I'm sure it was some model...
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:51pm deanland:

@Parq: you might notice that there is not much written about Karen & Richard as kids. Richard via tech and music (keyboards, arranging), and Karen via music (drums, singing) managed to escape what must have been horrible in other ways. Even fame could not tame their various inner demons. What happened to Karen is tragic. Some of it was her inability to come to terms with it or to find proper help. Richard suffered, out of the limelight (no TMZ back then) and they were so beloved as a whitebread and vanilla act that they were left alone.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:52pm Parq:

@Dale: yet right, according to the concepts of right and wrong that would be common if only WFMU ruled the world.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Another fine show tonight, as always.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:55pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:55pm Parq:

Try and imagine having a conversation like this thirty years from now about, say, Kate Perry or Ashee Simpson, and you get some idea of how much all this is for me to absorb.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:56pm deanland:

Ditto @Ken From Hyde Park
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:56pm fleep:

Thanks, Monica!
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:56pm Jeff:

Is that a boomin' system driving by on the street outside? No, it's Monica bringing the Jay-Z. Damn, that's some crazy entrail-shaking bass on the big speakers in the living room.
Avatar Sun. 7/7/13 8:56pm Monica:

Thanks, Ken From Hyde Park! Great ta have ya here... hey there, Don F! I'm happy for him, not crazy about the record....
  Sun. 7/7/13 8:57pm 12539:

So glad to have been able to take a proper seat at the coffee table tonight, Miss Mon. Love on ya and all my fellow fans, as ever.

About that Daft Punk record... we were introduced to it when The Niece showed up a few weeks ago and made us listen to "Get Lucky" real loud, several times.

Trivial, goofy... but nonetheless, it has some staying power. A total earworm.
