A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

That A Girl Called Eddy album is really good. SHe seemed to disappear after it came out. There's been nothing from her since.
Avatar 9:31am Brian in UK:

No intentions old bean, as soon as I saw that leather coat & snappy keyboard I thought you looked familiar, seem to remember mention of a daughter on one your unforgettable shows. By the same token I am not a bronze cast dog called Opera.

@G That's not the right lyric. Is that what you've been humming to yourself for the last 40 years?

While they're away you should play a tape loop of their clucks and chortles.
Avatar 10:14am listener mark:

My neighborhood is populated with chickens, cows, and horses. They are all a rather nice bunch. They don't say much and are very good listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am G:

No that's the joke I was making up to myself five minutes or so ago. Autogenic mondegreen. It was a cutesy childlike song, not a remake of Jailhouse Rock. :)

I kept getting them mixed up with L'Trimm and wondered why I couldn't find "Cars That Go Boom" on any of their albums.

Gotta Love NJ!!! My wife and I moved here about 1 1/2 years ago... From Queens...and are now realizing it is the most "kick back" oriented State in this country...JUST PAY SOMEONE OFF...AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR CHICKENS...THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE HERE...!!!!

Did a neighbor complain about your chickens?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am G:

Not a problem. I can do footnotes. :)
Avatar 10:20am dale:

i would think the expense and stress of moving them would be more than any fine for that tiny window of illegality. also thought you could have up to 8 or 10 without a permit.
Avatar 10:21am listener mark:

Chickens eat the ticks and other bothersome insects. That alone makes them valuable members of the community.
Avatar 10:22am Jennique:

Just tape pointy ears and whiskers on them and call them cats.

A few neighbors just *like* to complain. It makes them feel alive, and even powerful sometimes, in kind of a pointless way they don't seem to discern.
