Hello there, listeners.
  8:06pm Listener Robert:

I can't explain it, but I didn't more than smile all the way thru Ken's advance obituary show, but I found myself guffawing at "...draggin' the river for me."
Avatar 8:08pm JakeGould:

“Moon Madness” is pretty nice.
Avatar 8:08pm Marc Francis:

Hiya Becky! So far, so great!
Avatar 8:08pm Becky:

I'm not above playing a teener if it's as good as Moon Madness.
Avatar 8:09pm Julea:

Howdy! We're listening on the road tonight, sounding mighty fine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm mauri:

hoy-a-hoy I keep seeing you in my dreams
Avatar 8:10pm geezerette:

So good. Thanks Becky.
Avatar 8:11pm Julea:

Really dig that Feeling Husky tune you started off with! Thanks for making the drive from Austin to Nashville a little more pleasurable. :)
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

Hey! Julea! Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

@Julea I've done that drive, I hope you're at least in Texarkana.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think any HTRG show would make good driving music. Especially if you're in the southern US.
Avatar 8:17pm Julea:

Just passed through Texarkana.
Avatar 8:18pm JakeGould:

Is there some moon related thing happening? I sense a theme.

mmmmm...Moon Pies & RC Cola...
Avatar 8:21pm Becky:

According to a horoscope I just looked at on the internet, the Sun in Aquarius is forming a square with the Moon in Taurus. And I'm a Taurus. So, there's that?
Avatar 8:22pm JakeGould:

I’m a Gemini and Aquarius women are supposed to really get along well with me. If a square is forming… Maybe at a table? Or a squaredance? Or a TED talk on squares?
Avatar 8:23pm Becky:

By the way, if y'all aren't listening to Julea's show Diesel Smoke & Dangerous Curves on the Ichiban stream, you're seriously missing out.
Avatar 8:24pm Marc Francis:

You want us to stop listening to you and go over there?
Avatar 8:24pm geezerette:

Too happy here to leave!
Avatar 8:25pm Becky:

Oh now. I'm saying if you want more stuff like this, and I'm not on the air, she will deliver!

Taurus will bore us like a slow loris.

...wait - Loris's are real?...
Avatar 8:36pm JakeGould:

You know why TV is dying? Because I can watch a Slow Loris eating a rice ball for free!
Avatar 8:36pm Mailman Tom:

Good evening, Becky, and fellow listeners!
  8:36pm Listener Robert:

Becky, we (at least I) need reminders the Ichiban even HAS programs! It was automated to being with, and then the Debbie program was instituted on what I took to be a 1-time or occasional basis, but I didn't even have the ability to listen to a stream then.
Avatar 8:37pm JakeGould:

@geezerette: Get me a beer too… The Slow Loris is just to beautiful.
Avatar 8:37pm Becky:

@Robert And the programs are fantastic!!

Avatar 8:39pm Julea:

Thanks Becky! I'm on Thursdays at 7, so no conflict with Honky Tonk Radio Girl. Plenty o' time to listen to both shows!
Avatar 8:39pm geezerette:

You got it buddy! Bartender...
  8:39pm Listener Robert:

Jake, I haven't even had the TV plugged in for 2.5 (or maybe 3.5) yrs. because of certain circumstances, but haven't been motivated to correct those conditions because, yes, I can watch slow lorises eating rice balls on the nets.
Avatar 8:39pm Marc Francis:

Damn. Why is your show only one hour?
Avatar 8:40pm Julea:

Hey, we're on the road to Memphis right now! Woohoo!
  8:40pm dennis diken:

diggin' the show big time!
Avatar 8:40pm JakeGould:

@ListenerRobert: Back in 2005 I was going thought some intense nonsense. And I fell asleep in front of the TV and just had nightmares because it was on a news channel. I seriously said to myself… Nope… I’m done. No TV. But thanks to my iPhone I get to watch some TV shows from the PALM OF MY HAND JUST LIKE A SLOW LORIS EATING A RICE BALL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I hate to rain on the slow loris parade, but guys are painting a more grim picture. www.internationalanimalrescue.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm watching myself & other people chat about Loris's's.
  8:42pm Listener Robert:

Lloyd Braun asked his juvenile daughters about a decade ago whether they'd miss TV or the Internet more, and it was no question, the Internet, which is why he next got involved with a project for online stuff rather than TV.
Avatar 8:42pm JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: You know, I know that… But the way I see it is without the videos I would have never known about the issue anyway. So hey.

  8:45pm Listener Robert:

Then again, I live not far from the Bronx Zoo, & how often do I go there to see the lorises or anything else?
Avatar 8:45pm Marc Francis:

My wife just said that "Sioux City Sue" is what the inside of her head sounds like.
  8:47pm Listener Robert:

I'm reminded of what Vladiimir Zworykin said on "Fast Forward", or even previously to that on "What's My Line?" about TV.
Avatar 8:49pm JakeGould:

@ListenerRobert: I hear the Bronx is a zoo and all you alls are the animals! BOOM!
Avatar 8:51pm Marc Francis:

Good talk.
Avatar 8:56pm Becky:

I didn't think through this record before playing it.
  8:57pm Tommy:

Avatar 8:57pm JakeGould:

Look at the monkey taking a bath and being groomed on the edge of a sink. I want to be reincarnated as this monkey. youtu.be...
  8:57pm Tommy:

I could swear I've heard this on the radio before
Avatar 8:58pm Becky:

The estimable Evan "Funk" Davies has let me know that in this context, it's alright!
Avatar 8:58pm JakeGould:

@Tommy: Ass, grass or cash… Everything the FCC takes in private but will shame you in public about!
