Wendy -- good call:) Hadn't thought of it that way, was just playing a bunch of Yip Yip songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Dominick:

Hey ho!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Charlie:

Hey Dominick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Charlie, if your theme was vocalizing, I'd say PSYCHIC, because my last two shows were all about the various permutations of vocalizing. Tobacco auctions, bah-bah-bah, fake animal noises, tra-la-la, glug-glug, scat singing... Except I did not include yip yip. Maybe next time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Charlie:

Sounds like fun, Wendy. How 'bout some hog calls?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm chresti:

Ooooh I love this Billie Holiday song! With Teddy Wilson orchestra, I think?
Avatar 5:43pm StringOFperils:

Prez for Pres
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Well, it's Passover, so not this time. haha. For real, though, I did play some eephing and hollerin', which is pretty close.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Ooh ooh! A few months ago I bought the Wild Tchoupitoulas album. It's one of the best purchases I've ever made.
  6:04pm Andres:

WR @5:21: Almost missed ya. Making rigatoni with a pork ragu sauce. Onto the salad now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Charlie:
