This is a great song, even if the cheese is sliced a bit thick. This was parodies as Basketball Jones by Cheech & Chong, which was remade on the Space Jam OST by Barry White & Chris Rock.

@fleep yes - I'm starting to think it's bed music and not broadcasting difficulties - which would be classic FMU :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm I k e:

LCD, I'm no authority, but IMO you were doing well during Diane's playlist, having an actual conversation; use that as a template for future interactions maybe? If nobody is responding, don't respond to yourself or spin off more random topics about weather and errands, etc. You seem manic sometimes. It's hard to describe. I once had a similar problem IRL and learned self-editing; you can too.

He lived in AZ for al ong time and did public radio there. And he's from GR, so right on both counts. He also does stuff for NPR national, too.

Avatar 5:52pm Danne D:

Okay so I assume it WAS the bed music :)
Was very difficult - but I was just concerned since I know there were transmitter issues early in the marathon (which I don't think affected the stream) but figured it was better to ask.
