But on the other hand, we've got Todd! So double the awesome, tonight. =)

It might surprise some to know that "Fade" is featured in the current music lineup on the American Airlines digital entertainment system.

Same story every Sunday night. Therese keeping me awake. I hate to see the weekend conclude.

I'm getting that damn flask, so I can hide my whiskey bottle in the garden and fill it up for discrete swigging.

My wife will NEVER KNOW!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:19am Skirkie:

As someone who is already a flask owner, I must say that one can still run afoul of open container laws when carrying a flask.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:20am BadGuyZero:

How soon is now?
  Mon. 2/24/14 12:20am coalhard:

West Virginia has new containment law--If you spill your vodka--put house shoe underneath it

Discretion must be practiced. I've snuck a flash in many professional sporting events and bars.

Is there a song "More Than Now"? Maybe that's what you're thinking of?
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:21am pacific standard simon:

Now-er Than This?
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:22am Skirkie:

Are there phone people there still? Or will Todd answer the phone?
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 12:23am pacific standard simon:

Todd isn't allowed to use the FMU phones.

I will answer if you want me to!

Unfortunately, I have to say the same thing I said to Dave M. -- when I get my membership status updated in a day or so, I will be eagerly pledging to this show.

Isn't Ambien the kind of music that Brian Eno makes?

Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:18am pacific standard simon:

You guys talk funny.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

I imagine taking Ambien while making music would result more in a sound collage than ambient, constanting hitting Record and Stop unaware of what you're putting on the track.

Hi there groovie DJ hosts. Sorry for missing the first hour, been on the phone with sister to make arrangements for Mom. Therese, I've tossed the $10. spot your way, I had to choose only eight of about 20 DJ shows to support so I really mean it.

Welcome Whooda.
Saw your comments on the Dusty Show--sorry to hear about your Mom. Always Remember, and Always Treasure.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:27am Whooda:

@Matt Thanks. I just learned that my sister and brother in law drove my mom's body from Kansas to Oklahoma in the back of their van...unembalmed in a body bag! No shit!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Shit, now that's a time you don't want to get pulled over!
  Mon. 2/24/14 1:30am coalhard:

I need a stiff drink now bartender over here!

BTW, no "car pool lane" jokes....

You heard the Staples Singers--give WFMU your dough, and then get BAKED! Recipe for a fun night! ;)
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:32am Matt from Springfield:

@Whooda: Heh!

@coalhard: I've got some nice rye whiskey, sending you some through the playlist! Who else would like one?
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:33am Whooda:

I think the stiff wants one.
  Mon. 2/24/14 1:34am coalhard:

I love WRY Whiskey
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:35am Matt from Springfield:

That's what someone should do for a Halloween party, make a set of cocktails they call "stiff drinks"!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:36am BadGuyZero:

Therese is a fountain of accurate information.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

Young Christian Slater, back when he was trying to be "the next" Jack Nicholson. Listen to his lines in that film!

Make sure the bartender's lively however, dead men sell no ales.

Diet Cokeheads?!?

Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:39am Matt F:

Loved that last mini set, Therese. I know much less stuff from this later stax box than from the first, and I love having someone else pick the trax for me. Not having to decide what to listen to and instead letting other humans with good taste pick 'em is a big part of the reason why I give money to FMU every year.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

You nailed it, Fiveash! Thanks!

Help out our wonderful "humans with good taste"!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:43am Matt F:

Todd- that's Bobby Bland's coke spoon in the stax museum, I'm pretty sure...

"in case of emergency, break glass..."
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 1:44am Matt from Springfield:

I'd be more interested in famous *users* of the coke spoon, not just the owner...

'Friday Night Videos" was a treasure to those of us in small towns that didn't have MTV on their cable systems.

Hi Caryn!
(Psst..follow the Marathon at work, but quietly ;)

Is the deluxe "Fade" the LP or CD?
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 2:20am Whooda:

Poor Harry having all those hot breaths breathing down his neck on the phone...Oh the pressure!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 2:23am Caryn:

Why thankee, Whooda!

@Matt from S.: I brought bud earphones in and have them plugged in on low volume. I think everyone else would be fine with me listening except the boss, who I'm trying to keep from finding out I'm listening.
BTW, I suspect Slater was not doing Nicholson as much as he was doing his dad, who just happens to be a professional Jack Nicholson impersonator.

Oil SHAKES! Shake that Middle Eastern frozen dessert!
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 2:48am Caryn:

Sadly, the oil sheiks seem to favour more mainstream music (and probably Clear Channel), at least if you consider who they pay millions to perform at their weddings and birthday parties. It's always someone like Beyonce or JLo, never Khlam or Yo La Tengo.
Avatar Mon. 2/24/14 2:49am Caryn:

But does anyone know what that WhatsApp guy listens to? He's got newly-acquired billions burning a hole in his pocket.
