Inviting, unusually contemplative tone to these first few selections. And I am thereby hooked, as usual...

ohh Gaylord, instead Elton, maybe you could play "Fridays child" by nancy Sinatra ok?

@cheri got to get on her meds.

Once we were talking about you-know-who while volunteering and one FMU staffer said, "Actually I like it when the commenters self-police," and I thought, "Wait, what? Aren't we supposed to let the DJ do that? I'm so confused." Thanks for clearing it up for us, Gaylord, at least for the next 83 minutes.

"This Girl is a Woman Now" went all the way to #2 on the "Billboard Easy Listening/Statutory Chart" in 1969, according to Wikipedopedia.

Another DJ once remarked that most Donald Fagen songs are also pedo-rock. Is that true? I'm not much for Steely Dan.

This has been an exceptionally perfect show. Thanks for the Ochs, Gaylord..

he's trying too hard with the donovan-like tremolo.
  5:56pm cheri:

Gaylord and jake , as I mentioned I had a real great day, this morning went to ihop for breakfast, seen ted 2 and got a lot of gift cards!
  5:56pm Hot Bar:

Funny how in Billy Bragg song Phil Och's says, "I never died," but in real life Phil Ochs said, "Phil Ochs is dead."
  5:57pm JakeGould:

@cheri: How old are you?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Huh. He was attacked & lost that voice.

PBS special on Ochs is excellent

i'm 36 jake, why?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm dale:

wow - the moody blues 'borrowed' that opening in 'i don't mind' on the magnificent moodys.
  6:00pm JakeGould:

@cheri: Because we’ve asked like 1/2 a dozen times when you constantly pointed out it was your birthday and you never responded that’s why. Do you donate to WFMU in any way?

It's sunny today in Illinois. Feels like summer, finally. Pop the champagne!
  6:02pm cheri:

time to time jake
  6:04pm JakeGould:

@steve: I like bags of fries for dinner because growing up Polish every meal was something with potatoes.
  6:05pm P-90:

A well-deserved tribute to our Dusty! Cool idea!
  6:06pm JakeGould:

@steve: And it’s not that easy to find place that make decent latkes in NYC anymore. Damn I miss the old days of Vesalka.
  6:07pm marmalade kitty:

That's what potatoes are for!
  6:07pm cheri:

ohh Gaylord, I think dusty springfield is really cool! thanks again Gaylord, this is a treat for me.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Neurotic about it - but ended up w/ these wonderful arrangements/productions. Maybe neurosis pays...

dust covers is still my favorite fmu premium of all time. ALL. TIME.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Gaylord Fields:

@dale: Thanks!
  6:10pm JakeGould:

@steve: Yeah, but the modern Veselka's is a brunch place. The original Veselka's was more like B&H dairy or any other lunch counter. You could walk in, sit at a stool, order two blintzes, one latke and a soda and then that’s it. Now it’s a big brunch production spot.
  6:11pm cheri:

well on that note, I have to cut out just for a while, fantastic tune here Gaylord! thanks so much Gaylord.

ah... guess i haven't eaten there in ~10 years.

i guess i agree re: latkes. but i made latkes from scratch a few weeks ago and damn they were good.

oh, i miss the original kiev.
  6:20pm JakeGould:

@Dale: Yup. Sad to realize the owners if the Kiev—who took over after the father/husband died—ruined Kiev and owned the buildings that exploded across the street from it. They’re to blame for the gas line tapping.

wasn't that b&h dairy?
  6:22pm Tommy:

Dang , my secret is out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm dale:

i just remember going there after being at the aztec lounge or pyramid club and drinking tons of coffee and cheap starchy food and being in total heaven. then i'd have to head back to brooklyn at 5 am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi, @Tommy! I'll tell K. you stopped by!
  6:26pm JakeGould:

@dale: No. B&H Dairy is still standing. But the owners of Kiev also owned the buildings directly across the street from Kiev… Those buildings that once had “Love Saves the Day” and “Pommes Frites.’

Anyone remember the late Diamond Dairy, in the Diamond District, of course?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Jeezy:

What Distractions LP is Boys Cry on?!
  6:31pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: I heard of that. It was inside the building itself, right? And you could sit inside and look at all the diamond dealings below?
  6:32pm JakeGould:

FWIW, all of the dairy restaurants I miss are from Brighton Beach back in the 1970s and 1980s. Damn, I could either get a slice of pizza or a knish (baked) from multiple storefronts without effort back then.
  6:34pm P-90:

Leshko's was my fave down there, since the 80's when I knew lots of 20-somethings who pioneered living down there when it was still rough but affordable. I was glad to see those places hold on so long, bummed that they're finally gone. In L.A., movie biz folk from Back East would frequently wax all nostaligic and homesick for those places, they were totems of a particular NY epoch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: That was the one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm dale:

good show gaylord. and good refereeing.

I still live in the hope that Mary Margaret O'Hara would make a 2nd LP. I reckon she's one of those singers that only improve.

Linda Perhacs: First album came out in 1970; her second in 2014!
  6:38pm JakeGould:

@P-90: A good part of the reason those places are gone has little to do with gentrification and more with a cultural shift in NYC Jewish culture where suddenly knishes and Jewish “soul” were looked down upon within the culture. Even today some relatives I talk to who I mention a knish to get upset as if I am showing off my poor roots a bit too much. It’s a fairly deep reason those places aren’t around but few want to talk about it.
Avatar 6:38pm steve:

that sounds like a very interesting list Gaylord
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Gaylord Fields:

Roger Nichols and the Small Circle of Friends: First album, 1968; second album: 2007 (all three original members)!

@Jake@6:38, interesting. My WASP grandmother wouldn't listen to country & western music for a similar reason. She was from North Carolina and it reminded her too much of her poor upbringing. She wanted to be more sophisticated. BTW, Brighton Beach still has great food, but now it's things like adjaruli khachapuri (Georgian cheese bread boats with a whole egg, etc.).

thanks very much monica
  6:55pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Yeah, Brighton Beach still has great food. But honestly, it’s no longer the world I grew up in and I’m not into what it’s become. And yeah, one dirty secret about American cuisine is the second a cultural group can pull itself out of the true lower class, they tend to abandon things like food. I have relatives in my family who I know grew up eating knishes but now talk about falafel and pita bread as if that his what they grew up on. Fairly sick social issue of status if you ask me.

@marmalade kitty: Not even a potato?

@Santos L Halper: The pleasure is mine!
  6:57pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Which is all to say, just wait until the kids in Sunset Park’s Chinatown grow up and move out… The place will change overnight and memories of the food carts will go along with them.

☆ episode (again)
  7:00pm P-90:

JakeG: Interesting perspective, but I recall those places as having more of a generically "Slavic" identity, rather than "Jewish Old Country" per se. I actually knew some kids from Russian/Polish/etc. Catholic backgrounds who thought of those places as "roots" cuisine for them too. Mostly it was cheap, substantial food for students and young musician/artist types. And open late.
