Hi Jake and Marcel! Sounds like we're the only ones hanging out tonight.
  9:16pm will:

Golly, I am really warming up to this Irene on Tuesday nights thing.

Me too, Will! I really think it's working out well.

Hello Irene and all! Enjoying this!

Evening, Irene and Trudelites!
Cool music, and a suitably chill background color..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Matt! We're having a nice, quiet night (not counting the music).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Matt from Springfield:

It's the listening with a nice, quiet mind that matters! :)

Linda Perhacs!! :D

Hi Irene, hello one and all.

Hello there Sean! Happy New Year!

Auld acquaintance, auld lang syne, &c to all ye Britons...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Sean! Congratulations on the new job, and Happy New Year!

Hi Matt, Happy New Year to you. Hope you had a fab Yuletide.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from Springfield:

A very nice holiday season, thank you.

Sean, how was Boxing day for you?
  10:20pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Irene, thank you, went over to see the 'ex' yesterday to help with looking after the Grand kids, thank you muchly for the card.
Avatar 10:27pm Jack Scheff:

Hey Irene - I just moved to New York from Seattle a week ago, and WFMU is one of my favorite things about the city so far! Keep it up and happy new year.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:28pm redkayak:

Well, those were a couple of nice songs....
  10:29pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Jake, it was rather good, got slightly 'trolleyed' on some Yuletide themed ale, wobbled home on the bycycle and started to watch the first season of 'The Good Wife'. Yet another zone example of quality North American drama.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Irene Trudel:

Welcome Jeff! Glad to have you join us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Got "trolleyed" :)
That makes me want to make a cocktail - a Streetcar, a variation on the Sidecar :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Well, no surprise here: at least two different recipes for a Streetcar, one called the PDX Streetcar, another called the St. Charles Streetcar...
Avatar 10:35pm Mugsy:

Good evening Irene, greetings to all on the board.
  10:36pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Can't remember where the term 'trolleyed' came from, a local term suggesting that you need to put me into a shopping trolley to get me home!
  10:39pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Black Sea Hotel, lovely, hoping they will come to this part of the world in the not too distant future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Matt from Springfield:

*Shopping* trolley--that's even more amusing then my first impression of that! Thanks for the outstanding bit of English verbiage!

Greetings Mugsy!
Avatar 10:55pm slugluv1313:

Thanks for the shout out.......got into Don Bikoff & Daniel Bachman thanks to you. Just got Daniel's new LP pn Lancashire&Somerset records recently.
  11:36pm JakeGould:

Irene, thank you. And I believe this is a better, more direct URL for the Amazon Smile for WFMU: smile.amazon.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Irene Trudel:

That's great, Alan! Has Daniel played in your neck of the woods yet? He's really amazing to watch and a really nice guy. So is Don, but I don't think he's into long-distance touring.
Avatar 11:40pm Mugsy:

This song is funky
  11:43pm Alan Cynic:

I'm not aware of Daniel playing up here....he might have got to Glasgow though. Merry Christmas to you & Peter....thanks for the card! :)

Have a Happy New Year Irene.
  11:54pm Alan Cynic:

Thank you for the play! :). A diff. version of this song is on a comp. for William Schaff's Fort Foreclosure, called ' Till the dirt, plant the home, watch it grow'. It has Gravenhurst, the Iditarod etc too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Irene Trudel:

You're always welcome, Alan! Happy New Year everybody! Hope it's a better one for all of us. Catch you all next week!

Great show, Irene and a wonderful retrospective of the fine music you have played this year.
Avatar 8:19am Van in DC:

....and just what did we forget last night? That it was Tuesday night? Yep. Too wrapped up in college football bowl games and stuff....

But the good news is it's catch up time! Yay me!

Avatar 8:24am Van in DC:

I knew INSTANTLY it was my favorite track from that fantastic Are We There album - TARIFA!!

Avatar 8:32am Van in DC:

Dang it. New guy just starting at work with me today...I'll have to pause out until probably tonight. Grrrrr.
Avatar 12:17pm Van in DC:

Okay, had to re-listen to Tarifa. Man oh man do I just adore that song SO MUCH.

Now I have to go listen to the entire Are We There album on spotify :)
