Avatar 9:48pm Roberto:

I may have spoken too soon. The correct spelling is "turmeric" but evidently, the first "r" may or may not be pronounced: www.huffpost.com...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm alanSixº:

Are you still in Southeast Asia Paulo
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe the Taylor Ham folks use turmeric and the pork roll people use tumeric. More study is needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm alanSixº:

Ken probly one thing the Taylor ham pork roll people can agree on is cawfee not turmeric tea

Jane Jetson also suffered from a sore button-pushing finger.

Index fingers & thumbs are common technoserf casualties.

They say they figured this is the year George Jetson would be born in.

Thanks for keeping me company Therese while I nurse my headache. Low volume. 🙂

There was a Futurama / Simpsons episode. They need to have a Futurama / Jetsons episode. There was a Flinstones / Jetsons episode, wasn't there?
  10:36pm Rick A:

Good Evening Therese and All, Given my experience on the subway, the era of the headphone is over. Last week, I glared at a guy through my mask on the train who was blasting his music. Thankfully, he got off, but not before telling me, "I guess my music was too loud for you." I nodded emphatically.

Pure as New York snow.
Oh hell yes.
  10:44pm thin slice:

We need a Joan Crawford answer song
  10:44pm Harry Corvair:

Not much of a roller rink nostalgist, but this Kim Carnes?

Roller. Rink. Nostalgia.
  10:45pm Rick A:

I didn't know that this song was co-written by Jackie DeShannon.
Avatar 10:48pm Therese:

Jackie DeShannon has song-writing credit on two tracks on that Kim Carnes album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yay Jackie
Yay Powderfinger
  10:59pm Rick A:

The Cowboy Junkies are some of the best interpreters of others' music. Their version of "Sweet Jane" is still my favorite after VU's.
Avatar 11:01pm I.M.Pufnstuf:

How refreshing to turn on the radio and hear The Cowboy Junkies. Such an under-rated gang.
  11:03pm Theo:

  11:06pm PMD:

Thank you for the wonderful show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Krull Sagan:

Agreed, pufnstuf, then this which I love already?! Had to chime in from dinner duties! Thanks Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Krull Sagan:

Come to think of it, the Junkies have been with me longer than any band I still listen to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm steveo:

Late for me, glad to be listening, hi
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:19pm patrick321:

Thanks for another great show Therese!
Goodnight all.
  11:20pm Rick A:

This is a great show, Therese, though the only drawback for me is that I look up all of the great songs that you are playing which distracts me from my work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Like to compare / contrast Junkies with MazzyStar - & posit they are children of the VelvetUnderground's third (s/t) album (sitting on the sofa cover) & call it DarkFolkRawk. Like TheBeatles - each VU phase cleared areas for practically entire Genres...
  11:25pm Rick A:

RRN63, as a friend of mine once said, "The Velvet Underground is the font of all that is good." Lez Manteez has a distinctive VU vibe as well in French, no less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

RickA noted !
...also like to tweek people w/ pointing out how into the doors Mazzy are - always many & more things...
  11:33pm Rick A:

Ray Manzarek's keyboard, in addition to his sideburns, resonate through history.
Avatar 11:34pm tak:

nice recognized it by the iiiiiiiiiiiin sound
Avatar 11:38pm I.M.Pufnstuf:

That PJ Harvey song was great but the segue to Cosmic Bliss was icky.I see it's your thang Therese but you can break your own rules when the segue is icky.
  11:40pm dano59:

Dusty!! <swoon>
  11:42pm Harry Corvair:

Like a summer rose I need the sun and rain

  11:43pm dano59:

I trace the line from VU to Opal/Mazzy Star to Widowspeak. Loved that band from the git-go
  11:43pm Rick A:

Another great Ace records compilation, those people are doing the lord's work. I dream of going to a record/CD store which sells nothing but Ace compilations. It would be a wonderland. I'm off to try and sleep, great show Therese, thank you.
  11:44pm dano59:

And people make fun of me for liking Claudine Longet. I guess I need new people
