Singles Going Steady or business as usual for this show
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:07pm Anthony:

Is this a fundraiser
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:08pm Anthony:

I wish this show was more than one hour. Best show on WFMU
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:09pm Becky:

@Anthony Thank you! Indeed, if you click that little pledge bar over there, you can make sure this show is on the radio for ever and ever (unless I muck it up)!

I especially like tontines style

Ain't no honkytonks out on the open range
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:17pm Ken in Tucson:

Howdy from way out west! Much obliged, ma'am. P.S. Most trucker songs are Western songs, IMO.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:18pm Becky:

@Ken Agreed! If you see a cactus, it's probably Western. Even if you drive by it.
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:19pm Anthony:

This show reminds me of WSM only hipper. This isn't Taylor Swift's country music. Is she even considered country anymore? Both kinds of music, Country and Western!

I've seen a few people grow a cactus or 2 in their nyc apartments
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:28pm Ken in Tucson:

@yippie That is just wrong.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:29pm JakeGould:

I have succulents in my Brooklyn apartment and they are doing fine don’t @ me.
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:30pm Will:

Feels good to have discogs nearby to further check out these nuggets.
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:30pm ?:

Lorne Green?
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:31pm Becky:

@Will I've had trouble finding them all on Discogs!
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:31pm JakeGould:

Oh Ringo… We knew by the tone his life was not long.
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:32pm ALiteralWizard:

This sounds like it could be about the actual Johnny ringo
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:33pm ALiteralWizard:

One google later confirms that it is
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:33pm Anthony:

Becky where do find all of these? Are they all singles or are some of them on comps?
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:34pm Becky:

@Anthony: Some of them might be on comps! I found them all on 45s.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:34pm Glennz_Cat:

I could have sworn Lorne Green did a version of "Ringo"
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:34pm Becky:

@Glennz_Cat He did! I to explain.

ho yeah I had to square dance in nj public schools
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:42pm Glennz_Cat:

I wish you had that record we had to square dance to back in the 4th grade
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:43pm ALiteralWizard:

I have this on a mix cassette called "speeding ticket"
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:43pm Becky:

Oh god, Glennz, I might have a seizure.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:43pm JakeGould:

Sorry but no square dancing in Brooklyn public schools in the 1970s.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:43pm Glennz_Cat:

That's how I got the Cooties
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:43pm Becky:

I was square dancing in NJ well into the 90s.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:44pm JakeGould:

Look at these covers! www.wagonwheelrecords.net...
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:45pm JakeGould:

“Square dancing is a fun way to get kids up and moving about. This traditional dance builds skills for memorization, coordination, team-building and self-esteem.”
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:45pm J&E in Ithaca NY:

Grew up in North Jersey , Square dance class was done in the gym; on days when the record player wasn’t working they’d roll out an old army parachute and everybody would hold the outside of the chute, and we’d toss one kid skyward.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/17/18 8:47pm yippie:

they even had square dancing down south in Atlantic City
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:47pm JakeGould:

@J&E: Now that sounds like a well thought out plan of activities for kids.
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:48pm ALiteralWizard:

A friend of mine years ago kept inviting me to a local square dancing thing.

Is it worth giving it a go?
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:48pm AL:

In NJ we had mother-son and father-daughter square dances.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/17/18 8:48pm yippie:

we only had it with other classmates and a couple teachers
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:48pm JakeGould:

“El Pizza” is amazing!
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:49pm JakeGould:

In Brooklyn we just figured out new ways to play tag in the schoolyard until someone was injured. Oh well!
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:49pm Ochre Ogre:

Yep, I remember the Ringo version by Lorne Greene. Thought that sounded a little different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/17/18 8:50pm KidProJoe:

Square danced in Chicago public school in the 80s/90s. We also warmed up with the Robert Preston Chicken Fat record.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:50pm Becky:

@KidProJoe I own that 45!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/17/18 8:51pm KidProJoe:

Hearing that would send shivers down my spine! Then I'd do some push ups.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:55pm Becky:

@KidProJoe I've been thinking of doing an hour of some of the absolute weirdest records I own - so maybe stay tuned next week!
  Wed. 10/17/18 8:56pm Johnzon:

howdy cowpokes... great show today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/17/18 8:58pm KidProJoe:

I'm on board with that for sure
Avatar Wed. 10/17/18 8:59pm JakeGould:

This was quite a good show for a show that has many good shows.
