Hey, Kitschy Mama! Why yes!
  5:02pm Kitschy Mama:

hey Candy-O! thanks for listening!

HI Kitschy M! Hi Candy-O!
  5:03pm Kitschy Mama:

welcome stringofperils!

Hey String!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm medson:

Hi everyone. Hope all is well.
  5:05pm Kitschy Mama:

hey medson, doing good over here!
Avatar 5:05pm StringOFperils:

"Got to admit it's getting better."
  5:05pm Kitschy Mama:

I've overdosed on Bernie Memes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm medson:

Those memes are pretty good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, medson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm medson:

Hey there Candy O what’s shakin?
  5:10pm Kitschy Mama:

favorite one: townsquare.media...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm medson:

The one with him sitting outside FMU is funny as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Candy-O'67:

Not much, medson! Just working and waiting for the sun to return tomorrow! Been rainy here this week :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm medson:

Bummer. It’s actually been a decent winter here on the southern tip of NJ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Candy-O'67:

It hasn't been too bad here, medson. We did have one day of snow almost two Sundays ago! It was so cool, since we rarely ever get any here :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm medson:

My friend sent me a video of snow in Texas. I think he’s near Round Rock
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm medson:

Show sounds so good Kitschy Mama
  5:24pm Kitschy Mama:

thanks Medson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Mike Sin:

Am I the only one that remembers that period of time in the early '80s when the only type of cheeseburger you could get on the boardwalk of Seaside Heights, NJ was a "CHEESE whiz BURGER"? Ha! I guess, at that time, extra refrigeration was quite an added expense!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm medson:

They dripped it off that stick onto the burgers didn’t they Mike?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Mike Sin:

@medson -- yeah, something like that. When I was a kid, I had the worst diet, so I always ate all that stuff every summer down at the shore. Anyway, enjoying the show, Kitschy Mama!
  5:28pm Kitschy Mama:

was the whiz in the middle of the patty like a juicy lucy or on top? sound like a damn mess.
  5:29pm Kitschy Mama:

Thanks for listening' Mike Sin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Candy-O'67:

That's near me, medson, only 15 or 20 minutes north of where I live. It snowed all over the Hill Country and San Antonio, parts of Houston and my parents got the same as us the next day in North Louisiana. What's funny is they live in North Central Louisiana about 10 minutes from the Arkansas line. 20 minutes away in the nearest biggest town in AR near them, El Dorado, they didn't get any snow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Mike Sin:

Whiz on top in place of real cheese. In 85-degree heat, it was all over the place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm medson:

I remember it on top and very messy.
Avatar 5:32pm StringOFperils:

Just add a little sand and it's perfect.
  5:35pm Kitschy Mama:

Just when cheese whiz couldn't get more gross, hey lets put it in a aerosol can!
  5:36pm Kitschy Mama:

and the Twinkie Weiner sandwich was born.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, I grew up on that as a kid, too! I wouldn't touch it now, the cheese whiz
Avatar 5:37pm StringOFperils:

It's the baloney of cheese.
  5:39pm Kitschy Mama:

lol stringOFperils certainly is! what the hell is in there?
Avatar 5:39pm StringOFperils:

That very same jar of Cheez-Whiz from when you were a kid is probably still good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm medson:

It was the cheese of the future
  5:40pm Kitschy Mama:

doesn't rot, like a big mac.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Candy-O'67:

And a Twinkie
  5:41pm Kitschy Mama:

or Texas Toast...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Candy-O'67:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Candy-O'67:

I'm enjoying a cold, bottled jasmine green tea right now. I got in in my last Imperfect Foods order. It's from Japan and delish! I just thought I'd share. It's unsweetened, too. The jasmine makes it so tasty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm medson:

My sister brought a wig to school in her backpack 3rd or 4th grade. She put it on in the bathroom at school. They called my mother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, medson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Candy-O'67:

Enjoying these 45's
  5:51pm Kitschy Mama:

lol, they called your mother! hilarious!
  5:52pm Kitschy Mama:

thanks Candy-O!
Avatar 5:53pm StringOFperils:

I'd have marched down to that school to reprimand my daughter for taking my backpack, and I'd scowl at the teacher and leave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Candy-O'67:

good one, String!
  5:56pm Kitschy Mama:

love Esquerita!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Candy-O'67:

Me, too! I didn't know he went by Eskew Reeder
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm medson:

I got an Esquerita paper cut out fashion character with my order from Norton Records. Little freebie in the order.
  6:00pm Kitschy Mama:

medson: oh so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Candy-O'67:

That is cool, medson! I need to get some of his stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm coelacanth∅:

  6:03pm Kitschy Mama:

welcome coelacantho!
Avatar 6:04pm StringOFperils:

Hey coel, c'mon in and have some cheese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm coelacanth∅:

jeez. cheese.
  6:05pm Kitschy Mama:

hey speaking of Cheese. I'm from Wisconsin and I can't spit without hitting chese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm coelacanth∅:

and then no one wants it except you.
good strategy
  6:06pm Kitschy Mama:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm coelacanth∅:

(and those you swap spit with)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm medson:

I love cheese and bread. Two things I’m limiting myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Candy-O'67:

Good afternoon, coel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Candy-O'67:

Same here, medson. I try not to eat them often...
  6:08pm Kitschy Mama:

Medson : good choice, that shit'll kill ya.
  6:09pm Kitschy Mama:

missing the musitron part of the song...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm coelacanth∅:

i don't eat much cheese or dairy in general, but last night the store had cabot cheese for ~$4/lb so i bought 3 kinds. (21oz total)
i gotta watch myself.
  6:12pm Kitschy Mama:

ugh cheese replacement is rough too... nut cheese doesn't cut it.
  6:13pm Kitschy Mama:

not the Sonics you were hoping for...
  6:13pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Enjoying this so much!
  6:14pm Kitschy Mama:

hey Sissophonic, thanks for listening!
  6:14pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Like these Sonics too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i don't mess around with those cheese substitutes, despite eating a vegetarian ("vegan") diet about 90% of the time
  6:17pm Kitschy Mama:

coelacantho: me too. the only faux cheese I can handle is parmesean.
  6:19pm Kitschy Mama:

HAHA i winged it... "parmesan"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm coelacanth∅:

i just don't miss it or need it so it's (normally) a once-in-a-while treat. i've gone years without cheese and not been tempted. i love my cooking and never cook with dairy. i just use cheese sometimes for avocado sandwiches.
  6:28pm Kitschy Mama:

cartoon themes.... no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm coelacanth∅:

(not to stay on the subject forever but) ...i knew someone who went to school in wisconsin who said she was much more - "shocked" i think was the word she used, at the meat consumption than the dairy.
  6:30pm Kitschy Mama:

oh yeah, its very difficult to be vegetarian in Wisco. I've lived in in WI for 35 years and it's thick.
  6:31pm Kitschy Mama:

beer & alcohol consumption as well :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Sounding great Kitschy!
  6:33pm Kitschy Mama:

Thanks Glynis! I'm excited for your show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm medson:

Thanks for a great show as usual. Going to catch the last bit in the car. See ya all next time.
  6:47pm Kitschy Mama:

adios medson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Candy-O'67:

Thanks, Kitschy! Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Thanks Kitchy! Ronnie is a big fave. I'd go see him a few times a year back in the day!
  6:55pm Kitschy Mama:

Cool Glynis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kitschy Mama!
  6:56pm Kitschy Mama:
