"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Bryce update: www.gofundme.com...
  12:11pm Mortricia:

So is Dirt the opening theme song? We were wondering if it's two tunes that are layered or if it's just one that was digitally altered with both tunes in it (the Everly Brothers "Dream"). Not sure that I'm saying it right but my husband thought the Every Brothers mix was a separate track and I thought it was one tune mashed up.

Hey ShelbyG! I was going to make a joke about jazz fannypacks being called Jazz bum bags in the UK but it just sounds rude. SO Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm tim from washington:

Hello chresti! Happy Friday the 13th to you too. You should take a stroll past the Munsters and Addams Family mansions in celebration.
  12:16pm ShelbyG:

Hi, Tim! And you know what fanny means over here, I’m assuming 😬
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm DjLorraine:

Chresti will you be attending?grayarea.org...

What about an arse pack?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Jason from Houston:

Dirty South checking in. Good greetings, radio buddies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm tim from washington:

Oh dear, Shelby, I just looked it up. Let's just say that John Allen's Jazz fanny pack premium just took on new meaning.
  12:21pm ShelbyG:

I didn’t know what Graham was saying for years..it was “I can’t be arsed”, I thought he was saying “I can’t be asked”, same gist. But, still 🙄
  12:22pm ShelbyG:

This sounds like my piano playing. Just an observation.

The kind of jazz fire you can't put out with a jazz fanny pack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm karlward:

You would need a whole barn full of jazz fanny packs, and that might not even be enough

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Niall Earns His Living on the Evening News:

What ho, Tupelo! Enjoying this evening's show muchly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm ChukAmok:

is "Barn" a version of parm where dried cabbage is used instead of mozzarella?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Handy Haversack:

Sausage Parchment Farm remembers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm karlward:

Sausage barn is like a sausage parm, but 1) it's big--really really big--you can ride a horse drawn carriage right into it. 2) people eat sausage barns, but nobody actually enjoys eating them 3) absolutely no electricity in the sausage barn! sausage conducts electricity even when dried out! 4) dried cabbage is a south Massachusetts thing, and they use it only for the doors
Avatar 1:45pm Hubig Pie:

We upgraded our sausage barn into a parma ham palace
Avatar 1:45pm Beast of Boonton:

Wait till the dogs barf up the sausage parm in the studio

I have hummus, pita chips, and carrots for lunch during the work week. It's just simple and convenient that I don't have to think about it. Plus I don't have to queue up at the microwave oven or anything.

I only get a half hour and I sit at my desk occasionally answering the phone too.

I do indulge myself with cookies for an afternoon snack either Tate's or Lenny & Larry's.
