I heard her say Albert King.

Here for some soul music, how about Sam and Dave?

Soundin' good, Suzy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm suzyhotrod:

Oh, Dr Lenny! Sam and Dave are great! There are too many great artists to fit into these tiny 2 hours.

That guitar lick is like a testifying nod.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Pauly from Clifton:

Afternoon, Suzy, Crew, folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for this celebration of the culture, Honorary Soul Sister Suzy!
Avatar 3:16pm ledzeppelinsucks:

Albert King was an alias used to hopefully confuse people with BB King to get audiences.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@βrian: JB’s funk formula was to treat the guitar as just a drum with strings instead of skins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm efd:

Did I hear an executive producer yapping in the background near the end of that mic break?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm suzyhotrod:

Hi Pauly. Gaylord good to hear from you! EFD: The intern is fiesty today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Gaylord Fields:

Waylon Sachs is my favorite ’50s musician too!
Avatar 3:18pm βrian:

@Gaylord: Well put. Its rhythm often reminds me of a railcar sway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm suzyhotrod:

The executive producer is rolled up like a snuggling cinnamon roll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm efd:

ah, thank you for clarifying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Ciggy:

Hey Suzy - Watching the She Believes Cup. USA vs Brazil. USA up 1-0 (of course muted, so I can bop to the R&R Derby).
  3:21pm drlennyr:

Interesting note, Herbie Hancock once played backup for Tina Turner singing ''Proud Mary" back in 1982...I was there!(Yeah I'm old).

aloha, Suzy Hotrod, rockers, and rollers!

cute exec producer pic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm suzyhotrod:

@ciggy: I need to give more efforts to follow soccer. Good for you! Hey Spodi! Also @gaylord, if you're still around. I was informed I missed some donut shit talking.
Avatar 3:28pm TDK60:

Hi DJ Suzy H.
Avatar 3:28pm HyperDose:

If that jovial track is any indication of what is to come, I'd say we're in for a real treat!
Avatar 3:29pm chresti:

Hi Suzyhotrod and rollers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Yeah, Suzy, Michael Shelley was trashing my baked donuts while simultaneously asking me to make him a batch (in order to change his mind, he claims).
Avatar 3:34pm Ruth Booth:

@Gaylord and we are all waiting for those donuts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm spodiodi:

nice set, Suzy
chresti 🖖
Avatar 3:35pm TDK60:

Hi Gaylord. I stopped by a street food vendor the other day for a coffee and he gave me a free glazed doughnut. An excuse!
Avatar 3:35pm HyperDose:

Ruth! Womanning the fort today?
Avatar 3:36pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Gaylord Fields: You are dead to me if you make donuts for Michael Shelley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Gaylord Fields:

Ruth, I always have donuts for non-haters! My boxes of King Arthur mix I ordered just arrived, and I’ll bring the batch by when I’m in the building two weeks from today!
Avatar 3:36pm Ruth Booth:

Hi Hyperdose! @ Gaylord :Todd brings me donuts!
Avatar 3:37pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Suzyhotrod: I think Little Richard wrote that song about you presciently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Gaylord Fields:

@Todd-ophonic Todd: Like I said, no donuts for haters!
Avatar 3:37pm Ruth Booth:

Gaylord, I can't wait!
Avatar 3:38pm HyperDose:

I thought flour was scarce these days. What kind of underworld black market flour delivery shenanigans are going on here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Gaylord Fields:

March 7th is Ruth Booth Donut Day! Mark it IN PEN!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm spodiodi:

going to have to bring the deep fryer out of stasis if there's much more donutspeak
Avatar 3:39pm Ruth Booth:

Gaylord I will!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Gaylord Fields:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm spodiodi:

drawing a big donut around the 7 sounds appropriate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm suzyhotrod:

Ruth Booth Donut Day should be a WFMU religious holiday. No broadcasting could be possible without Ruth. a mere donut symbolic gesture seems fair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Andrew Hollywood:

hey everybody - thx for the tunes suzy <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yay, Suzy! Yay, Ruth! Yay, Gaylord! Yay, Donuts! Yay, everyone and everything!

@Ken FHP: I’ve had your cake, so you rate in my book!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Pauly from Clifton:

Suzy, thanks for turning me on to The Black Tones! Wow! They are great! Checking out more on their Bandcamp page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Ciggy:

@Suzy~The USWNT are the best in the world. They kick ass and have that R&R attitude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@HyperDose: That’s why I order all my flour, mixes, and baking implements from King Arthur, the Cadillac of Baking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm suzyhotrod:

Todd! Just realizing you paid me a compliment up there. A Little Richard-related one, NICE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm suzyhotrod:

Who would win in a fight? King Arthur or Bob from the Red Mill?
Avatar 3:46pm K8:

Hello Suzy and everybody! The Black Tones into Tamar-Kali!!! Voices that can bend time...sooooo goooood!
Avatar 3:48pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@suzyhotrod: Do you think I would be insulting you? Not on your playlist...maybe on someone else's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Gaylord Fields:

Suzy, you hare hitting it hard with the Black ladeez who rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm spodiodi:

Bob would win (at least i hope, due to my popcorn interest)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm spodiodi:

howdy, K8!

Hey, hey Spodiodi! Hope Sunday is treating you good!

Whoa! Is this from the new re-release?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm suzyhotrod:

Is there going to be a re-release of Bam Bam? I had to get this from YouTube
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm jmd:

Welll...I'm not really sure. I've seen them come up in the press more often than usual lately, so maybe I'm just assuming.

Gaylord, in last year's marathon unbeknownst to me (but beknownst to others), I won a giant academic book. I was certain the postage on the carton would bankrupt the station.
Avatar 4:30pm Hoboken Jack:

Letterman band alum Felicia Collins I presume?
  4:32pm choggie:

if you want to hear some good straight up rock and roll from some black men how about the busboys?

Yay, Lady Bo! I was very fortunate to see one of my favorite guitarists, the late Peggy "Lady Bo" Jones perform at the Ponderosa Stomp a decade ago!
