Evening Tonkies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm ultradamno:

Becky! Tonkies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

Howdy Becky! Tonks.
Excited for an hour of twang.
  8:02pm P-90:

Greetings on this tranquil January evening...
Avatar 8:02pm BothKindsofMusic:

Such a slow day... hope this show perks things up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm loveless:

There was some good news today . . . Hello all.
  8:04pm BH:

all the "Georgia" themed songs inspired by last night kinda fell onto the backburner after this afternoon
Avatar 8:04pm y_ddraig_las:

Are y'all British? Responding to crisis with heavy sarcasm?
  8:05pm Christo:

Hi Becky! Agreed none o that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Becky:

Just...what can I say? Or play?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm PigeonsAndRust:

'Martial Law' by Parliament is always a good choice. Admittedly not very twangy. Maybe some Red Ingle instead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Doug in JC:

What is there to say aside from the obvious when this thing isn't even over yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

@Becky: this afternoon, Duane played a ROCKIN set. It felt good.
I don't think you need to feel any pressure to respond to the news. Just do what you do best on this show: play really good music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Becky:

I mean, I've got lots of protest songs. But no "bunch of lunatics invade the seat of our government with no resistance" songs.
Avatar 8:10pm Frank Verplanck:

Doom scrolling! Guilty as charged. Just logged off to give HTRG full attention!
  8:11pm NikiA:

happy to be here with y'all tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Becky. If a record called "Hang 'Em High" is out there, that may be apt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm bill hanke:

hello. did i miss the Billy Joe Shaver tribute?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm loveless:

That Matt Monro is so smooooooth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Popcorn!
  8:13pm ignatatus666:

I’m not scrolling
I’m playing Pokémon go
Avatar 8:14pm y_ddraig_las:

Exactly D Rok. I think what we want is to escape the real world of today and listen to the usual array of fine tunes, rather than an attempt to theme tracks to current events.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm PigeonsAndRust:

@KFHP it's more suited to Morricone Island, I'm afraid youtu.be...
Avatar 8:15pm Little Danny:

Could do worse than a jukebox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Doug in JC:

Could do better. Say, a pinball machine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

I've seen some very sexy pinball machines.

They don't like it rough though. [TILT!]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm ultradamno:

Avatar 8:22pm Little Danny:

Dang, didn't know ol' Faron had a straight rockabilly 45. This is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Jake - Yeah, those people can just fade away. We can enjoy some good honky-tonk over here tonight.
Avatar 8:26pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Becky and Skeletons and Everyone!
THANK YOU so much . . . and here i thought i would have a nice quiet day of *getting stuff done* . . . turned on the news, wanting to find out about the results of the Georgia elections, how everything was going with the Electoral College stuff . . . and geez! HEAVILY ARMED lunatics invading (Handmaid's Tale, anyone?) so i am SO GRATEFUL for these tunes . . . and i hope everyone out there in FMU-land is okay, sending out POSITIVE ENERGY :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Popcorn!
  8:30pm seth from muddy creek:

FMU for Prez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Becky:

I don't think we want the gig, seth
Avatar 8:32pm slugluv1313:

Leyla McCalla's version of "Song for a Dark Girl" comes to mind
  8:33pm seth from muddy creek:

@becky but I can still vote for them! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

No-one truly worthy of the gig wants it. That's the problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I think it's Mr. Connie lest anyone assume it's Miss Connie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm ultradamno:

A national anthem by People Like Us sounds good though
  8:37pm BH:

I think giving yourself the prefix "Mr." is a slightly more Southern thing? partly thanks to the various first names that are used more for women than than men (see: Graham, Lindsey and McDonald, Lauren "Bubba")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Becky:

(Mr.) Honky Tonk Radio Girl
Avatar 8:39pm y_ddraig_las:

Where did that banjo come from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Mr. Fine Wine:

y_ddraig_las: come on, it's the Hairy Bears!
  8:40pm BH:

there was an older guy running for Congress from West Virginia in 2018 who made sure he was on the ballot as "Mr. Shirley Love" (he lost the primary)
Avatar 8:40pm slugluv1313:

@ D Rok -- yes! exactly! i was thinking how Michelle Obama, Dolly Parton, and Oprah could run things waaaay better than any "president" -- oh sure there would be disagreements but my guess is that they would come up with sensible ways of working them out (yeah, i know, goofy vision, but i can dream!)
Avatar 8:40pm Little Danny:

C'mon Connie. At least the Hairy Bears love being bears. www.timeout.com...
Avatar 8:41pm y_ddraig_las:

Perhaps I need to discover more of these Hairy Bears
Avatar 8:42pm Little Danny:

More answer songs per capita here than any other show! Sorry MFW.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Becky:

GUESS WHO
Avatar 8:46pm y_ddraig_las:

He's Gggrrrreeeeeaaaaaattttt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

If I'm not mistaken, this is the second time I've heard the voice of Thurl Ravenscroft this show.
Wasn't that him at the end of the Faron Young track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Mr. Fine Wine:

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!
Avatar 8:48pm y_ddraig_las:

I thought I heard him in the Faron Young track too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm ultradamno:

If Billy loves a guitar why doesn't he marry it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm ultradamno:

A capo could be the ring.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

It wasn't an allegation! It was a question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Becky:

I'm in a prosecutorial mood.
Avatar 8:52pm Little Danny:

I knowed you've played something else from this album before, Becky, but I think I missed that it was entitled "Up To Date Country Music"
Avatar 8:52pm Little Danny:

"knowed," ugh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

fair
Avatar 8:53pm slugluv1313:

omg i am LOVING Carl Dean's "Country Road" -- THANK YOU BECKY!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm bill hanke:

Country Roads the unofficial national anthem of Germany. true!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Becky:

If you liked Country Road, I played lots of other tracks from the album a few weeks ago: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar 8:55pm slugluv1313:

WONDERFUL show Becky -- thank you so much!
be well, be safe, everyone!
Avatar 8:55pm Little Danny:

Thanks Becky! Great show as always.
Avatar 8:56pm slugluv1313:

thanks Becky, YES! i thought Carl Dean's name was familiar :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm ultradamno:

Is solitary confinement the sentence for bearing false witness against Tony The Tiger?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm listener 126464:

Thank you Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Becky:

You, a 5x5 cell, and a bowl of Frosted Flakes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

ultradamno: if it is, the pandemic beat you to it!
I prefer Lucky Charms though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm D Rok (in brooklyn):

This hour always flies so fast. Thanks for another lovely show Becky and skeletons.
Avatar 8:59pm y_ddraig_las:

Topping show as always. Thanks Becky, Skeleton Crew and Tonkies. Nos da.
  9:30pm Tinley Park Randy:

What’s next....Wango Tango by The Nuge?
  9:32pm Tinley Park Randy:

Wango Tango!!!
