Ontario, not Ottawa!!! Geez !!!! Anyways they got another bridge 60 miles north. No big thang. Don't believe the hype

No the bridge leads to Ontario!

Sorry...was distracted. Something going on in Ottumwa?
  9:35pm dano59:

Ontario southern peninsula is between NYS (Buffalo) and Michigan. And Ottawa IS in ON!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Handy Haversack:

Kate was invited and is being paid to be on a big-deal panel on her profession and is *still* on it because apparently the big-deal organizers forgot that I need a drinking companion in the evenings. Thank god you all are here to appreicate my witticisms!

Yes, Ken, RCMP Radar O'Reilly ordered a truck convoy from HQ, eh?
Avatar 9:36pm Therese:

I apologize to the good people of Canada.
  9:36pm dano59:

Canadian truckers cause embraced by the US right wing but that’s for another corner of the web
  9:36pm McGerz:

Ambassador Bridge leads to Windsor, ONTARIO. Know it well because I used to smuggle beer over it from Canada when things was different.
  9:39pm McGerz:

Michael Moore was right. We should blame Canada for all our woes and start a war with them.
  9:39pm potatoad:

getting effin' skooled today. I had heard that syl j 'strokes' sampled somewhere. never knew the source.

Also- Trouble interviewed Syl Johnsoon way back in 2009. Archive is here: www.wfmu.org...
  Swag For Life Member 9:40pm LizaJane:

how can there be so many "how did I not know about this" moments on this station?! (Syl, not Canadian bridge deets...)
  9:40pm McGerz:

She's got Betty Davis eyes.

Excellent Selecter selection, selector!
  9:47pm Robm:

@LJ I don’t know about that, i have seen some really good discussions on here and learned a lot from it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm listener 126464:

I got that De La cassette from FMU when it came out.
  9:51pm dano59:

Both Syl and Betty were mysteries to me before this century. Betty was a favorite ‘discovery’ for a lot of music bloggers. It’s entirely possible to live a life immersed in music and still miss a few great ones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm listener 126464:

Thanks to Monica, I would say.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Handy Haversack:

(Though "Home" should be "Come" in the song title in the playlist. Sorry. Metadata.)

Therese, you're really bringing it tonight.
Very much enjoying this show.
  9:55pm dano59:

This is lovely
  9:55pm Robm:

@Dani59 this station and a couple of other’s have turned me onto a lot of music I would not listen too, I don’t really listen to commercial music radio stations with their SSDD crap

59 was good year.

I have to get caught up on Yellowjackets, tho I’ve already figured some of it out, halfway in

Hey Therese and all. Late to the board but I've been enjoying the show
  10:06pm Glistener MW:

Getting some wonderful St Germain vibes from this Kit Sebastian! 💚
Avatar 10:07pm Therese:

@dano59: I thought I had it figured out halfway in, but boy howdy, was I wrong.
  10:12pm dano59:

Good to know, @Therese. I’m just trying to stay a step ahead of the conniving, poodle-haired little psycho.

Serendipity, my tuning in! I have been on quite a Stephanie L Nicks kick, lately.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:09pm McGroovey:

I still think the Fuzzy Glove Hour should be next renamed "The Kelly Jones Show".

I've thought about it more, and I think the "(featuring Ken and Andy)", so Kelly can keep them in line better.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:11pm McGroovey:

Oops. Editing error.

I think the "(featuring Ken and Andy)" part should be left off, so Kelly can keep them in line better.
  11:14pm Eugene R.:

"Fuzzy Glove Hour 2: Glove Harder"

Rumors. One of the top ten albums ever created. Listen on a super sound system. Ethereal and present.

well heck, I just now now realized a reason I've heard so much Syl Johnson lately could be that he died and looked that up. :\

this is a timeless classic for sure !<>! but they'd muck it up and "sweeten" it ie take away the 70's rawness and lead guitars too !<>!
