Hey Candy-O!
  5:13pm Smoketown Joe:

Butt-shakin' tunes, perfect catalyst to get me moving on a frigid day. Thanks Ms. Kitschy Mama
Avatar 5:14pm Kitschy Mama:

No Prob Smoketown Joe, Thanks For Tuning In!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm medson:

Hey Candy O. How you holding up down there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm medson:

That opening set was great and this one is off to a great start as well :)
Avatar 5:22pm Kitschy Mama:

BC & The Cavemen is apparently brought to you by "Mike Carpenter". I love finding records other people labeled!
Avatar 5:23pm Kitschy Mama:

thanks Medson! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm skid:

Which kind of music do you like?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Candy-O'67:

Holding up, medson! Got my power back. The worst thing right now is only hot water in faucets and having to boil water right now. The city issued that yesterday. It's supposed to start warming tomorrow. So, this should all be melting soon!
  5:40pm MOM WHIG:

Nice to see you Candy-O -- glad you are warmer too :))
  5:40pm MOM WHIG:

We only got a tiny bit of Ice Storm early today
Avatar 5:45pm Kitschy Mama:

Candy-O, I used to live in ATX. I can only imagine the absolute chaos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm medson:

There is a lot for the State to learn from this. Let’s see how it goes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Candy-O'67:

Thanks, you guys! There sure is, medson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm medson:

That harmonica. Love it.

G'day medson!
Avatar 6:05pm Scott67:

G'day Candy-O! Glad to hear from you. Watched NBC Today, the weather report looked terrible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm medson:

Those old commercials are great.

Avatar 6:14pm Scott67:

G'day coel! I was in the shower when you said g'day in Fabio's show. 😎🤙
Avatar 6:14pm Kitschy Mama:

I love the ole ads! I've just been approved to play them on my show and I'm so excited! I used to play them back when this show was a podcast.
Avatar 6:15pm Kitschy Mama:

Welcome Coel!
Avatar 6:16pm coelacanth∅:

all is fair in Love and personal hygiene
Avatar 6:16pm zivilars:

Hey everybody, hey Kitschy Mama! I'm late, but better than nothing!

Welcome Zivilars!

Love the Everly Brothers
Avatar 6:20pm Kitschy Mama:

They made A LOT of songs!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Carmichael:

Love their hair! 😲
Avatar 6:21pm Kitschy Mama:

I'm determined bringing back the term "folding money"
Avatar 6:21pm Kitschy Mama:

Carmichael : lol, just brush it up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Scotty! Nice to see you, too! I'm doing a little better here with power now. Things should start melting tomorrow. So, hopefully things will be better by next week!
Avatar 6:23pm coelacanth∅:

brush it up and cauterize it into a helmet shape
Avatar 6:23pm zivilars:

what a rocker
Avatar 6:24pm coelacanth∅:

just gonna ask about it Candy; i guess a lot of folks still without?
Avatar 6:25pm Kitschy Mama:

they got the look from Conway Twitty. bit.ly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Daisy:

Hi kitschy mama, candy-o coel, Medson, mom whig, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Carmichael:

I believe that's Wayne Cochran?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, coel! I think there's still some. Most people I know do have power again. Now it's finding water that's the problem. I'm glad I filled my tub yesterday to boil water. I've only boiled one pot so far. So, doing good here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Daisy!
Avatar 6:28pm Kitschy Mama:

Welcome Daisy!!
Avatar 6:30pm coelacanth∅:

haha yes that's Wayne Cochran and i laugh out loud whenever i see him!
Avatar 6:30pm coelacanth∅:

but Conway had some amazing hair at times too
Avatar 6:30pm Kitschy Mama:

haha!! oops! hilarious!!
Avatar 6:31pm Scott67:

Good to know Candy-O! Sending sunshine & warm whishes......& tissues! 👍😉
Avatar 6:31pm Kitschy Mama:

Sorry for the mix up! here is mr. twitty. pbs.twimg.com...
Avatar 6:32pm coelacanth∅:

Candy i heard the water situation was dire because of the lack of ability to boil it for many people. i guess that's relieved for most now - i hope
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Candy-O'67:

I hope so, too, coel. They even started to have warming stations around town for people who were freezing in their houses. I'm glad they started to have those. Never heard of such before, but when a need presents, people get creative!!
Avatar 6:34pm coelacanth∅:

nice, Kitschy... i may only throw stones knowing about the rubber walls in the house though
Avatar 6:34pm Scott67:

Coel, yeah personal hygiene isn't a priority lately. But about to walk into my Doctor, so thought a shower & shave appropriate.
Avatar 6:36pm Scott67:

Thanks in advance Kitschy Mama! I will be at the Doctor"s as you finish! All good, just a checkup. Stay well & warm all.
Avatar 6:37pm Kitschy Mama:

Thanks For Listening Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Candy-O'67:

Scott, you'll crack up. I took sort of a sponge bath today in my shower with a combo of hot water from my bathroom sink and room temp water that I boiled last night. It was just the right amount of hot and I had to make a second bowl and freeze while doing it because my washing sponge was too soapy to keep dipping in the water to rinse! It worked out and I felt clean as a whistle! I didn't have to wash my hair today. That will be another feat in the kitchen sink maybe tomorrow!
Avatar 6:38pm coelacanth∅:

Wayne Cochran after trying cannabis
Avatar 6:38pm Scott67:

Thanks for being there KM! ❤🌞
Avatar 6:38pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 6:39pm Scott67:

No doubt coel! 👍😉
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Candy-O'67:

Coel, I loved Wayne!
Avatar 6:40pm Kitschy Mama:

coel : lol, ahhh.. loving the internet.
Avatar 6:40pm coelacanth∅:

Candy, last kiss will never not give me a shiver
Avatar 6:41pm Scott67:

Candy-O, ouchiee! 😊🌞
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Candy-O'67:

I hear ya, coel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Candy-O'67:

See ya later, Scott! Hope your doc visit goes well :)
Avatar 6:43pm zivilars:

freaking great show as always, Kitschy Mama – staying awake just for this although I should already sleep
Avatar 6:45pm coelacanth∅:

speaking of sugar shack (<) i knew someone who used to hang at the real sugar shack. said that's what's on the cover of Marvin Gaye's i want you album and that that scene depicts exactly how it was.
Avatar 6:45pm Kitschy Mama:

Thanks Zivilars!
Avatar 6:45pm Scott67:

Cheers Candy-O! Still waiting in my car to be called in. She's running late.... but could go any moment. 😆
Avatar 6:46pm coelacanth∅:

(actually she said it was always a lot more jammed than that)
Avatar 6:46pm Kitschy Mama:

i think i need to listen to more "quiet storm" music.
Avatar 6:51pm Kitschy Mama:

straight from the vaults....
Avatar 6:51pm coelacanth∅:

ha, this person listened to the quiet storm every night for the couple a years we were together; i'm set for a while!
i once mentioned that radio show to someone since then and she'd never heard the term. i described it and she exclaimed
"Ohhh, 'slow fuck me music.'"!
Avatar 6:53pm Kitschy Mama:

coel: hilarious.. i just think of Tim Meadows on SNL.
Avatar 6:55pm Scott67:

Still waiting in my car listening! ✌😎❤
Avatar 6:55pm Kitschy Mama:

Scott, maybe you'll catch some Crayons To Perfume too!!
