Hi Gaylord! I see you'll be taking a well-deserved break this summer :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi, Cliff! Yes, it's been 15 years since I've had a proper two-day weekend, and I'm looking forward to the possibilities.
  5:09pm Cliff:

That's Glen Jones levels of commitment to the station right there!
  5:10pm Cliff:

(And Bill Kelly, Jeff Sarge, all of you Sunday DJs are stalwarts)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks! To clarify, I have taken off individual shows here and there.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Julie:

Loving this UT song (and the sentiment)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Gaylord Fields:

Folks like Bill Kelly and Jeff Sarge have only missed shows for health reasons.
Avatar 5:12pm geezerette:

Gaylord,best of luck in all your endeavors while you're away.
I'm going to miss your sensibility. Hope at some point you want to return,it's been a great pleasure listening to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Gaylord Fields:

Hiya, Julie!
  5:13pm IFisher:

Hello Gaylord and all-
Gaylord, I'm happy for ye, truly, but bummed all the same. You are sui generis
  5:14pm Cliff:

Bill Kelly and I have something in common, he started on WFMU in 1978, and I started on the planet in the same year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@geezerette: Thank you for your weekly sunshine and wordplay! I hope not to be gone too long.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Uncle Michael:

I'm going to miss you, Gaylord. Come back, ok?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@IFisher: Gee, thanks! That's swell and head-swelling.
  5:16pm Cliff:

(And I haven't skipped a single weekend off-planet)
Avatar 5:16pm geezerette:

Gaylord, thanks :D!!!
Avatar 5:17pm rjk:

Hi Gaylord, and everyone else. Sad to see you missing from the new schedule. Sunday nights won't be the same. Hope you'll be back soon. (great opening set, by the way)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: I'm certain I'll find the outside world frightening and come scurrying back to the warm bosom of WFMU at the earliest opportunity.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Uncle Michael:

Good. It's awful out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@rjk: Thanks! I'm looking forward to my time off but I will certainly miss this community.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Uncle Michael:

I'm taking next week off. In the micro it's a relief, once in a while, not to have a sow to prepare. In the macro, I'd have a hole I wouldn't be sure how to fill.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Uncle Michael:

Gaylord, you need to get active on social media so you can post links to songs you think I need to hear. There's a lot of music I wouldn't hear without your tutelage.
  5:24pm Cooh John:

Have a good hiatus, Gaylord. Remember there will be a lot going on in Cbus on Rick James death day. Great show as always.
Avatar 5:24pm geezerette:

UM, preparing a sow even once would be daunting,but once a week! That's a lot of BBQ!
  5:24pm Cliff:

I still don't "get" social media *shrug*
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Uncle Michael:

How will I fill that hole without a prepared sow? I ask you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Gaylord Fields:

As much as I'm very much looking forward to having my Sundays free, there must have been a reason (or several) that it's been15 years since my last sabbatical.
Avatar 5:26pm BadGuyZero:

I was disappointed to not see your name on the summer schedule. But then I realized that you'll now be able to enjoy the full Decades TV weekend binges. 'Cause you could be watching "Celebrity Bowling" right now instead of spinning records for our enjoyment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@Cooh John: So true! It may happen.

@Uncle Michael: I'm still waiting for antisocial media so I can not be a part of that either.
Avatar 5:27pm geezerette:

  5:29pm Cliff:

Gaylord, it's called Reddit
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Uncle Michael:

Any Sunday you want to just comer over and play records...just sayin'.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Uncle Michael:

Gaylord has no combover. No matter what you may have read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Gaylord Fields:

@BadGuyZero: It was tough tearing myself from the Celebrity Bowling binge to come here. As it is, I'll be missing the always hilarious Billy Barty (okay, I'm DVRing his appearance).
Avatar 5:31pm geezerette:

Cliff,funny! :D
  5:32pm Cliff:

geeezerette, wocka wocka!
Avatar 5:34pm geezerette:

back atcha :D!!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Joel:

There must be some mistake.. I pledged to your show this year so you would continue to be there, continue being the person who made the end of the weekend a bit easier to accept, not so you would leave. There obviously was a mix up.. What will i do for this year's SOULSTICE ? AAAAGGGHHHHHHHH :-)
  5:35pm Cliff:

Btw, if you wanna hear another ghost story, send me a message on my profile page - this one's a bit more unsettling than what I posted on Irene's show a couple weeks ago so I don't want to go into it here :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Gaylord Fields:

@Cliff: Ha!
  5:39pm Cliff:

Yes, Reddit, the internet cure for hypotension.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joel: Did you make out the payment to me personally, as per my coded instructions, or did you perform the most common error in making it out to WFMU?
  5:41pm cheri:

Gaylord, you'll be missed, have a wonderful summer , things won't be the same and looking forward to your return. THANK YOU Gaylord!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Joel:

But the nice person on the phone said they would make sure everything was taken care of :-) Enjoy your time off and know you will be missed.. First Monica, now you (sigh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm dale:

checking in....ola people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Gaylord Fields:

@cheri: Thanks for the kind words.
  5:43pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: So this means you'll be hanging out in the rec room after church services to finally, properly enjoy pound cake and fruit punch with the rest of the parishioners, correct? No more "Irish exit" to play your beloved 45s.
  5:43pm bill:

oh no gaylord......i'm buying a coffin and jumping in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joel: That is incredibly kind of you. (And there is a Summer Soul-stice plan of action, which I will announce during my mic break.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: Yes, I will finally get to saunter on a Sunday. And I've heard tell of this meal called "brunching" that I'd like to try.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@bill: Whew! As long as you don't cremate yourself.
  5:46pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: Brunch is horrible nowadays. Don't do it!
  5:47pm bill:

i have question--when you do a soul-tice or a special om a certian type of music, is it still free-form---because your boxed into that genre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: It's been 15 years! How bad can things possibly get in 15 years?
Avatar 5:49pm Monica:

allright, blow your whistle for gaylord!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@bill: Yes, it is still freeform, by typical definitions.
  5:49pm Cliff:

Hey Monica!
Avatar 5:50pm Monica:

poppers time, cliff and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Monica: I was hoping this would wet your whistle! Spit up all into that thang!
  5:51pm Cliff:

Is contact cement an acceptable substitute?
  5:53pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: 20 years ago SantaCon was a fun counter-cultural event. Now look at the dude-bro d-bag fest it has become!!!
Avatar 5:53pm BadGuyZero:

It's so weird that everyone in that WFMU documentary is disappearing. It's a KENspiracy!

[not to be confused with Kihnspiracy, which is an album by Greg Kihn Band]
  5:54pm Cliff:

I'd like to hear a KHLAMspiracy
  5:55pm JakeGould:

Unless someone knows what the deal is with schedule changes, can we stop with the drama? Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm fleep:

Zingy Twangs, those were great, with the nut clusters and circus peanut chips
  5:57pm Cliff:

JakeGould, I assume they're noobs who haven't been listening for more than a year or two?
Avatar 5:57pm geezerette:

Jake,the squid stopped laughing.
  5:57pm Cliff:

(Or they just REALLY REALLY love Gaylord!)
  5:58pm JakeGould:

Also, Gaylord can consider that break his Quinciniera gift!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: So, essentially, their role model is the Santa from the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer stop-motion animation TV special.
  6:00pm riff randell toronto:

Perfect timing to catch you! I received my signed Yoko Ono in the mail today ❤️
  6:00pm JakeGould:

@GaylordFields: I agree. I mean I think the Abominable Snowman from the Rankin-Bass stuff is cool so I have to agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm fleep:

Moving Faye up is going to cause auditory jet lag.
  6:05pm Cliff:

Ichiban, hai!!

Holy crap, Gaylord- I just took the most amazing picture of my cat, standing on her hind legs with her paws on the windowsill, listening to your voice coming out of the radio...

This is too much beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm fleep:

Gaylord, your imminent absence means I can now fill a whole programming day (8 shows x 3 hours) with shows I miss. (Is that the end of noobitude?) But there's 15 years of archives!

Andy Kaufman was a genius.
