Listener comments!

  11:39am kat330:

Hi, Charlie! How is it that things pile up to make me busiest on BDN afternoons?? I'll try to change that up in the NY, but cannot this week. :/ I'll be listening all the way through (as much as possible!) though.

Keep the convo love-ly and lively here, dear ones assembled today, for me to read and smile at some later time! :)
  11:42am Katya Oddio:

Brr! A good morning here for hot breakfast in bed -- under the warm covers! Hello, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am charlie:

Hi, you cool Kats :)
  11:48am Michael:

Brrr indeedy. Let's let charlie warm us up. Hiya charlie and everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am charlie:

Hi Michael! It was five below here this morning...
  11:55am Uncle Michael:

  11:56am Michael:

ooofa! It was 5 when I walked to the train. You've got more snow though too.
  11:59am ndbob:

morning Charlie and everyone!
  12:02pm listener james from westwood:

was 17 earlier today in bergen county, and that's in the midlands. brrrr.
howdy all and happy 2013!

Hiya Bob and Uncle Michael and LJFW!

'Twas a balmy 8°F here this a.m.

wow Doug - colder then here even - 13 right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm charlie:

Hey, Katya, warm all us northerners up with some AZ temps!
  12:11pm Katya Oddio:

We are now up to 50F!

speedy and jimmy - total hacks. :)

Hello Lovers!!

Charlie: Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm charlie:

Hi Artie and Jan!
Thank you, @Katya!
And, yes, happy new year!
  12:20pm listener james from westwood:

now i want to go back to new year's eve and resume my honeymooners binge. :)
  12:21pm listener james from westwood:

katya, i like winter, but the temps here have me envying every 1 of your 50 degrees.
  12:23pm Uncle Michael:

Charlie...Brady Kids, not Partrighe Fambly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm charlie:

Oh, whoops, Uncle Michael, yeah, thanks!
  12:26pm Katya Oddio:

On the north and east sides and just south of the city, there are snow covered mountains. Fun to visit, and nice to live at the base of them. Bear in mind that to people accustomed to triple digits, these 20s-60s temps are brrrr. All is relative.
  12:27pm Katya Oddio:

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly... erm. Well, I'm glad we haven't!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm charlie:

It helps to throw in a few ghazals sung in Urdu to break up the silly :)
  12:35pm ndbob:

Sure does Charlie:)

  12:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi charlie and everyone!
Hope you had a Holly Cholly Christmas and holiday!
  12:40pm Matt from Springfield:

With these Kilimambogo Brothers, one can Kilimamboogie on Kilimanjaro!

Heya Matt!

Greetings, Matt!
  12:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Like the Sweet and Innocent, charlie! But, which one is which...?
  12:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Sweet! Is this the all dot-matrix printer and old computer machinery group?
  12:55pm Matt from Springfield:

This "Cake" bit is legendary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm charlie:

The spoken-word piece that launched a thousand remixes!
  12:59pm Laura L:

Hi Charlie, what Kat said--me too--so busy but listening and loving the show--thanks and xoxo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm charlie:

Hi Laura -- thanks for dropping in and saying hi :)
  1:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@Bingo Gazingo: THERE'S OUR HITLER!!
  1:06pm Dervish:

Love-ing the show, Charlie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm charlie:

lol, Matt!
  1:08pm Michael:

I think he loves someone
  1:09pm Matt from Springfield:

The most concise reaction I could think of :)
  1:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Michael: Sounds like the People singer loves Colin Blunstone of The Zombies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm charlie:

He loves *you*, Michael ;)
  1:10pm mo:

the show that dares not speak its name.
  1:12pm Michael:

or could just be the cold...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm charlie:

I will speak thy name: Hi Mo!
Yes, Matt!
  1:13pm listener james from westwood:

been a while since i heard bingo gazingo! i live next door to a guy who inadvertently sounds a lot like him.
  1:15pm gary levine:

love this one Chaz!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm charlie:

Oh, hey, Gary! Thought you'd like this :)
  1:20pm Uncle Michael:

I like cake....well enough.
  1:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Cristina (Monet)--always a fun listen.
  1:27pm gary levine:

yeah matt, she sounds like a soused deborah harry
  1:37pm Matt from Springfield:

A soused, Quaalude popping, Marilyn Monroe imitating Debbie Harry. Her great version of "Is That All There Is" is how I learned about her. "Disco Clone" is more a novelty, but still a great disco parody (and features a young, uncredited Kevin Kline).
  1:37pm Michael:

I was down Manahawkin way last week. Some of the devastation is incredible.
  1:41pm listener james from westwood:

i can't even imagine. i wonder how lavallette is sometimes, but i'm afraid to google pictures. spent many a stretch during childhood summers down there, and all up and down that strip.
  1:45pm listener james from westwood:

w00t! blossom dearie and one of scott williams's music beds! perfect together!
  1:46pm Uncle Michael:

Blossom is simply the best. *sigh*
  1:46pm Matt from Springfield:

And what a Dearie she is, too!
  1:46pm gary levine:

blossom you are the most
  1:47pm Michael:

James - I grew up in Monmouth County and spent summer on the beaches in Sea Bright (and sandy hook). Sea Bright is in real bad shape - they still have a curfew at night. The beaches are all hurting. We made it down to Seaside which as you've seen is in bad shape. Amazing to see FEMA trailers and National Guard in NJ.
  1:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks LJFW! Now I recognize that brass-y instrumental Scott always has towards the first hour! There's that long medley instrumental too (maybe this is a part of?), some of which I recognize and some other tunes I didn't.
  1:48pm ndbob:

intriguing set here Charlie!
  1:49pm Matt from Springfield:

And, the required song for this show!
  1:50pm listener james from westwood:

i hope things go better for sandy's victims than for katrina's, all over this area.
matt, i'll occasionally hear songs from scott's peppy bed music in public and start whistling along. in a just universe, i'd meet my future spouse, whistling the same song to herself, for the same reason, passing in the opposite direction.
  1:51pm kat330:

[breathlessly] I *did* make it on before the end!

@Charlie: Without a doubt, one of the loveliest BDN's of all my multi-month listening -- *thank you*! :) I didn't hear you mention it in your 2nd set mic break (?), but that Donovan "Please Don't Bend" was a gift I'd forgotten -- chills from it!
  1:52pm Buck Turgidson:

I recognize that voice
  1:54pm Matt from Springfield:

*hands kat a paper cup of Gatorade*
Great job, kid! You made it! Cool down and keep moving at a slower pace!

@Gen Turgidson: That voice used to be all over the place. I love that actor!
  1:54pm Doug S.:

Whatever you do, try to keep busy waiting till next Thursday's BDN. At the very least, you can idle away three hours tomorrow morning (9-noon) with the next live broadcast of Give the Drummer Some.

Ready to keep you wide awake for the next few hours — here on your 24-hour Drummer Stream — are these industrious artists:

Dee Clark
Freddie Hughes
William Parker
Albert Beger/Hamid Drake/William Parker Trio
Catherine Irwin
Améde Ardoin
Lionel Hampton
Conjunto Soyuz
West African Cosmos
Morogoro Jazz Band
Sachiko Kanenobu
Unidentified Vietnamese gong players
Sombat Methani & Rut Ronphop
Unidentified Central African pygmies
Rodriguez (yes, the Searching for Sugar Man guy)
and more
and more
and eternally more...
  1:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: And like in the movies, you'd both meet in a crowded place, lost in thought while whistling the same Scott W bed tune, bumping into each other at a right angle, and beholding a love at first sight...
  1:55pm kat330:

@Matt: It's too damn cold for Gatorade! Some cocoa will be very nice. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm charlie:

wb, kat330
keep humming, LJFW!
one more song after this -- going a little long!
  1:57pm ndbob:

Heya kat!
  1:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: That'll dehydrate you, any trainer will tell you that! At least drink this room temperature water first :)
  1:57pm ndbob:

excellent show Charlie!
  1:57pm gary levine:

Brown covers Como
  1:58pm kat330:

@ndbob: I think we're finally matching your temps here now. :)
  1:58pm gary levine:

indeed nd
  1:58pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks Charlie!
  1:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@charlie: How serendipitous you had the "Love" theme on Jan 3--today marks my parents 32nd Anniversary. And kat told me her and Philo's Anniversary is the day after, so way to go capturing the romance of January!
  1:59pm kat330:

My tagline fits in here: When finally their minds' eyes met, it was love at second sight. :)
  1:59pm ndbob:

@kat uhoh:)
  1:59pm Buck Turgidson:

Yeah what bob said. Thanks much charlie xo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm charlie:

Thanks for hangin' out today, y'all.
Happy anniversary, where applicable.
See you next week.
  2:00pm kat330:

That's right, nicely strewing the rose petals on the path to our 13th wedding anno celebration tomorrow. Thanks again, Charlie! :> Bye everyone!
  2:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Lovely show charlie! Glad to be back here for a new year!
Take care everyone, try to keep busy, but try not to do anything! :)
  2:01pm gary levine:

love this A Camp (Nina).. and also wanted to thank you for the Lorraine Bowen Experience
  2:02pm gary levine:

  2:03pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, charlie! be well, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm charlie:

Glad you enjoyed Lorraine Bowen! She's unique...
  2:18pm gary levine:

oops ... meant to say Andy Zack sign-off music (Love Unlimited).
  5:16pm Tower:

Sorry I couldn't get here live. Enjoyed the archive today. The Peter Sellers is one of my favorite 45's! Great show as always.
