Thank you for such a great show, Monica. Not sure if I have mentioned this in the past, but when I am trying to convert the musically brain-dead to FMU listeners, I always go to the Monica archives first. Your show seems to capture so much of the goodness of many types of programs on the station -- a nice capsule version of the station.

That makes sense. I love how the older songs, the songwriters did not care about who did what or who sang which song. more of a free for all.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Great answers !
Lennon, Tim Buckley yup
...you aren't gonna like this - but Jim Morrison...
  2:06pm Jackie G:

Perry Como had a smooth singing voice.
But Jon Anderson is my go to voice.
Avatar 2:06pm DeemerDave:

I can't decide if I want the voice of Geddy Lee or Thom Yorke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Johnny Hartman...
  2:06pm rich the greeb:

Here’s an odd one too… Paul westerberg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Handy Haversack:

I was thinking Kevn Kinney or early Shane MacGowan.

Though, always and of course Sandy Denny.

If I could sing like Hoboken Jack, I'd record a soupçon of vegetarian soup songs!
  2:08pm Jackie G:

The most beautiful, angelic voice belongs to Emmy Lou Harris. Her voice makes me cry.

,, agrees with kev whoeheartedly ... too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Carmichael:

No one said Tom Waits ... 😮
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Carmichael:

I dunno, maybe Morrissey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

Tom Waits
  2:10pm mitchella:

Laura Marling has an incredible voice...
  2:10pm Jackie G:

Janis Joplin makes me cry too. For completely different reasons.
Thom Yorke too.
Avatar 2:11pm Stillwell Coney Islander:

Gladys Knight or Ronnie Spector
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm dreamyandseedy:

Celia Humphris from Trees would be my 2nd choice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Tome:

!<>!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I reckon if Art is @ all about making you feel things - Janis gets there faster than about anybody.
Darlene Love might be in that category Stillwell CI...
  2:12pm Bob from poughkeepsie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Handy Haversack:

Tom Waits would be up there for me, Carmichael!

K8 says Billie Holiday, Rihanna, PJ Harvey, and Anohni. Then we decided a limit had to be maintained!

Mr C in the place to B - and G!

Horace Andy, Liz Frazier, Anne Briggs. Okay that's my limit. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Little Danny:

@pgalub: Anne Briggs is one of my all-time fave voices, too.

Funny - I can burn out on DinahW but not Sarah. Hm.
  2:20pm Bob from poughkeepsie:

The guy from Dream Theater.
  2:22pm Jackie G:

Once played Jon Anderson for someone for their first time. He said, "She has a nice voice."
Avatar 2:22pm Monica:

Hi Jeff Golick and Bob from Poughkeepsie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Krys O @1:52 - Sorry, stepped away for a bit. Stork played an excerpt from the Honeymooners "The $99,000 Answer" episode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Jeff Golick:

👋
  2:27pm Jackie G:

Played (the great) Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards. Someone said,"He has a good voice."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Gaylord Fields:

I'll play too, as this is an easy choice for me: I'd like to be able to sing like David Ruffin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Carmichael:

Same with Boy George. A friend liked Karma Chameleon until he found out it was a guy.
  2:29pm rich the greeb:

Yesssss Gaylord! Did you watch summer of soul yet??
Avatar 2:29pm ncjay:

Miz Monica! had to be out and about, but just got home in time to say hi! will catch the entire show 'pon the replay!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Gaylord Fields:

@rich the greeb: I haven't watched it yet, because I promised to see it with a friend who's out of town till next week. But to say I cannot wait is a huge understatement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

& - if I could sing like Otis Redding I reckon that'd about have it covered.
  2:33pm rich the greeb:

It’s really good @gaylord
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: So your friend blew right past George's "I'm a man without conviction" line?

@rich: How could it not be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Carmichael - try Jimmie Scott on him...
  2:37pm slugluv1313:

hellooooo Monica! Everyone!
thanks for these cool sounds, it is HOT out there!!!
got home while you were playing "Persephone" -- totally stopping me in my tracks (at first i thought Allison Russell sounded like really early Linda Ronstadt?!?) -- then had to look up the lyrics upon hearing your description . . . WOW just WOW, so incredible (even if hitting just a liiiittle too close to home) -- gotta listen to more when i have the chance . . . and honestly, i have no idea who i would want to sing like -- but if i could write songs like "Persephone," THAT would be freaking awesome 😺😺😺
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

Guitar solo is son of guitar solo from "The Cover of the Rolling Stone"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Phillippe:

Probably not a popular choice, but I always liked Ben Folds' voice. If I was of the other gender, I'd say Angel Olson, cuz I love her.
  2:40pm Jackie G:

Dance With Me was a good song. (No, it wasn't)
  Swag For Life Member 2:40pm N'Lo:

Shocked, but feeling like Nick Cave takes a lot from Dr. Hook!
  2:42pm prudy:

I believe this is from summer of 1972...
  2:42pm mitchella:

Rob Banks ... gotta luv a falsetto
  2:42pm rich the greeb:

@phillipe : I feel you on bed folds. The ben folks fine were fantastic. Great songwriting and punk jazz energy

Cool times with Monica on this hot day. Thank you, Monica. Come back soon. If the spirit moves you.

Oooh, why didn't I say Elvis Costello? I'd like to change my choice to Elvis Costello. Forget I said anything else.

This made me feel things. Thank you, Monica.
  2:52pm mitchella:

right at this moment I would choose to sing like Diana Ross to my mum on facetime, she's lost the ability to communicate verbally but I know I'd get a beautiful smile outta of her if I sang ;-O
