I was sorry to read about the passing of Lonnie Mack. He was one of the greats.
Avatar 8:10pm Becky:

@Tom, I'll definitely play one of my favorites of his later in the program.
Avatar 8:24pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Cain't be "Too Many Tigers" for Mr. Finewine, ammirite?
  8:25pm herb.nyc:

Song is like "break my mind"
Avatar 8:25pm Becky:

@JJJ you nailed that one right on the head.
Avatar 8:26pm JakeGould:

All the people dying seems to mean pretty awesome tributes on WFMU in 2016. Silver lining of a sad cake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Not so fine wine. Is more than fine.
Avatar 8:27pm Becky:

@Jake What does sad cake taste like?
Avatar 8:28pm Marcel M:

What an appropriate song to tune into. My wife just said to me, "drinking again?"
Avatar 8:29pm JakeGould:

@Becky: Like a sad cloud with shitty frosting on top served at a sad restaurant by counter person who wishes they were somewhere else… Possibly dead…
Avatar 8:29pm Marcel M:

@Jake: Que fuerte
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Greatest exchange ever:
Elvis: Do I sing the Devil's music ??
Jerry Lee: Sohhhn - you *are* the Devil.
Avatar 8:30pm Becky:

@Jake So like Entemann's?
  8:33pm Tommy Haynes:

Up comes the coke spoon empty goes the wallet
Avatar 8:38pm JakeGould:

@Becky: Dang you! You nailed it! I mean I should be giving you grief since I am Brooklyn born/bred and Entemann’s is sacrosanct to some… But in 2016? It’s just crappy supermarket cake. I’d rather have some Table Talk pies than an Entemann’s anything nowadays.
  8:39pm herb.nyc:

Ray SANDERS for prez!
Avatar 8:41pm Becky:

@Jake I grew up near an Entemann's factory outlet. We lived on the stuff...which means it is very sad cake for me.
Avatar 8:43pm Marcel M:

I donno Jake table talk sucks. Entemann's is much better. It serves its purpose.
Avatar 8:43pm Marcel M:

Avatar 8:44pm JakeGould:

@Becky: Oh… Okay… Buying food at the dinged and dented food place can be sad. My sympathies.

@MarcelM: I like Table Talk. Deal with it.
Avatar 8:44pm Marcel M:

Jake, you glorious titwillow, I'll eat them to but can you really say they are better than the entire Entemann's catalogue?
Avatar 8:45pm Marcel M:

Avatar 8:48pm JakeGould:

@MarcelM: Table Talk is more consistent and reliable. I buy a Table Talk pie I know exactly what I am getting and it tastes great. Not the case with Entemann's; I’ve eaten some dry ass baked goods that should have been good… And they’re not as good as in the past.

Also, on the snack cake front I wish Drakes Yodels were as good as they once were as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I hear "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" in the background....cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The theme from The Beverly Hillbillies, that was.
Avatar 8:53pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Snack Cakes and country gold. 'Swhy I came.
  8:54pm P-90:

Can't have Entenmann's in the house. Can't do it. Not the doughnuts, the devil's food frosted sheet cake or the marshmallow frosted one. Or the pineapple cheese danish with the flakey yet sticky crust. Because: if it's not here I don't miss it, I don't crave it, but if it IS here, I will eat it compulsively 'til every bit of it is gone...
Avatar 8:55pm Becky:

Can't believe I'm playing an Olivia Newton-John defense song right now.
Avatar 8:55pm JakeGould:

FWIW, artisanal Ring Dings are pretty good (but pricey) if you can find them. The few doughnut shops in NYC that still make their own doughnuts on site are also amazing.
Avatar 8:56pm JakeGould:

@Becky: If you don’t defend Olivia Newton-John then who will?
  8:57pm Renbo:

Hey when is your show over Becky I just got here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...been an artisanal ringding of a show...yessir...
Avatar 8:57pm Marc Francis:

Thanks for another great show, Becky!
Avatar 8:58pm Becky:

@Renbo 2 mins
Avatar 8:58pm JakeGould:

Thanks Becky!
  8:58pm P-90:

And sad cake fot poor Lonnie Mack, a really, really important musician whose passing was completely overshadowed by the passing of a much more famous important musician...
  8:58pm Renbo:

oh man i am gonna CRY
Avatar 8:59pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Look out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember that as a young 'un that my mom would bring my grandma (who didn't drive) over to see great-grandma & grandpa. Great-grandma would have Mrs. Freshey's snowball cakes. I must seek those out and relive old food memories. Fresh ones, I mean. Not cakes that are almost fifty years old.
  9:00pm P-90:

And thank you Becky, for doing your thing here every week. 'Tis appreciated.
Avatar 9:00pm Juke Joint Jonny:

The hottest of guitars, right here.
Avatar 9:01pm Marcel M:

Table talk sux. One love.
