Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm fred:

Yeah, it's not over. Over here, we now have to show a QR code to get to shows and an expanding number of places. I got one when I got my second shot, but it's not accepted anymore. I need to download a new one to the smartphone I don't have, or print it (I don't have a printer at home). I have to print it at work. But I need to show the code to get in because it's considered a venue (though the show space has been closed for almost 10 years)

Fingerprinted for the 5th time in 40 years. Apparently agencies don't share stuff like that (until you commit a crime, I guess). First time I had them done, I had to go to an FBI office, pretty much had a full cavity search just to get to the fingerprint room. This time? Had them done in the sorting room of the Suitland MD post office by the same person selling stamps. Had that shady feel about it, like I was an expat trying to get some fake documents to get out of Manilla in the 60s

@Ike: I bolted to a nonprofit years ago. The behavior can be as toxic or more (the lower the stakes, the more vicious it gets), but at least the aims are not as bad. And in my case, the location is unbeatable (it used to be very important, back when live shows were a thing)

  2:06pm Listener Robert:

I just noticed that while you played "Whole of the Moon", the playlist of the main channel had "Destination Moon" and a funny thought occurred to me: What if a DJ on an alternate stream listened to the main channel and, on the spot, chose records to parody the main channel?

IDK if there’s any FMU show you could really “parody”, is there? But maybe you could try to pick records with similar themes but a different style… or something? Musical counterpoints?
Avatar 2:13pm Mary Wing:

Amazing how this sounds so 2000s, and the ones from the 1990s (coming up) sound so 90s, heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

That must've been a great tour, David! Didn't see them until a bit later. Mike Scott had an amazing solo show here at Merkin Concert Hall and I (Michael) saw The Waterboys here when they played the short-lived Fleadh festival one year on Randall's Island and again two nights in a row at The Garage in North London a year or two later. Love!
Avatar 2:14pm Mary Wing:

Not so much parodied, I guess, but paralleled, maybe? But then what would be the point of that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm doctorjazz:

Terry Reid in 1991-is that the same guy with the explosive voice late 60's? If so, voice not what it was (but he does sing the hell out of the tune nevertheless).
Avatar 2:17pm Mary Wing:

Same Terry Reid from the 60s, yeah.
Avatar 2:18pm Mary Wing:

Looks like he slept through the 80s though, no records released in that decade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm David (in London):

Terry 'I turned down Led Zep AND Deep Purple' Reid. Kudos (though smaller bank balance).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm David (in London):

S&M&S - Ah, The Garage, just round the corner from me. Great place to see them.
Avatar 2:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Someone needs to Rawk this tune...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Haven't been to London in ten years but often came for months long stays back in the day. And LOVED The Garage. Many great shows there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm doctorjazz:

Then again, I'm not quite what I was in the late 60s either...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Michael 98145:

epitome of the 80s

I was hoping the rain would get rid of the smoke smell, but as someone on Twitter put it, “The air has changed flavor, from Tangy Mesquite to Cool Ranch.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Ike:

But not actually that good. At all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm fred:

I missed the start of 3OAK trying to convince my neighbor to get vaccinated. I hope it worked
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm David (in London):

S&M&S - My spare room is at your disposal at some future date...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Handy Haversack:

I hear you, Ike. I had higher hopes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm fred:

@Ike: is it the season for ice cream truck jingles yet?
Avatar 2:27pm Mary Wing:

Oh jeez, yes, fred! All day long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Kevin / Ringwood / UK:

Wow Mary, so many versions! So many of them really good. Ready to go and watch Brigadoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

David, that is so very kind of you!
Avatar 2:29pm Mary Wing:

Hi Kevin! More interesting versions are coming, had to get the more faithful versions done first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Tamar played the jingle on her fill-in last night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm David (in London):

Kevin, I was lobbying for Chas & Dave's 'Down to Margate', but Mary insisted on The Whole of the Moon for some reason...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm fred:

Maybe because it now belongs to the Billionaire Space Penis Empire
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Michael 98145:

this is a lovely version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Carmichael:

She's emotin'!
Avatar 2:39pm Mary Wing:

A nice twang to her voice, yes.
Avatar 2:40pm βrian:

Had to drop out to lay some paint on siding. More to do ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Kevin / Ringwood / UK:

Not Gertcha then David. Grateful for small mercies...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Phillippe:

Sounds like Billy Joel's version, if he had actually covered it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm fred:

@Phillippe: Good thing is that Mary won't fall for that taunt (Ken might though)
Avatar 2:52pm Sylvia:

my favorite cover so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Phillippe:

@fred good point.
Avatar 2:53pm Mary Wing:

Only one left to try for the title, Sylvia!
Avatar 2:54pm Sylvia:

ha! I’m a tough judge 😁
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Carmichael:

Easy Phillippe ... 😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm fred:

@Phillippe: Don't ever mention that to Ken though. We could have a 3-hour Billy Joel show on our ears, and who could survive that?
Avatar 2:55pm Mary Wing:

<shudder> No. Please, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Phillippe:

@fred hey, if it starts with the Cold Spring Harbor years, how bad could it be?
Avatar 2:56pm Sylvia:

I always confuse Joel with Idol 🙃
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm fred:

@Phillippe: Famous last words
Avatar 2:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...was thinking the singer in Acoustic Odds reminded me of Styx - unfortunate as it's a good performance...
Avatar 2:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Sylvia - an odd association !...both big in the MTV era. I suppose...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Phillippe:

@fred I guess we'll keep it as our little secret. Mary, please delete all prior discussion of Billy Joel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Phillippe:

Thanks for a great show, Mary! Til next week!
Avatar 2:59pm Mary Wing:

Thanks for listening!!
Avatar 2:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
