Good afternoon, fine listeners of WFMU!

Awlright Becky !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Gaylord Fields:

It's a rare opportunity for me to hear Becky live as opposed to being trapped in my evening underground commute!
Avatar 1:11pm Becky:

Hooray! Hi Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It's Honky Tonk Saturday. How nice! And it's October now, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm ChrisB.:

Love to hear a Becky fill-in!
Avatar 1:16pm glenn:

oh come on. eddie shack is OBVIOUSLY the greatest singing athlete. or maybe johnny bower.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm ChrisB.:

They always mentioned Lee's singing career on the back of the Topps baseball card. Sometimes with a cute caricature.
Avatar 1:18pm Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Becky, and all.
Yeah, glenn, that Bower side blew Eddie off the track, tbh.
  1:19pm Listener Jumpy:

Just sending support, as you attempt to step into Rex's shoes (stepping out of your own sensible ones).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm ChrisB.:

"Get Mets-merized!" Now there's some singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm pacific standard simon:

Nice to be with you live, again. I'm not awake yet.
  1:22pm Hackensack Slim:

@ glenn Eddie Shack sang? I thought he was called Eddie the Entertainer because of his on-ice prowess.

PS Becky, Soundin' Good.

Johnny Sea -- First name in piggybacking records and cheap arrangements!
Avatar 1:30pm Marc Francis:

And here I was worrying that Saturday wasn't going to start on time this week. Goddamn great set so far Becky!
  Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Uncle Felix:

I love Rex, but viva Becky!

True bear!
Avatar 1:33pm glenn:

You make yourself at home, dale.

was gonna ask if leiber and stoller took umbrage with ol' rufus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: I suspect that you or I couldn't be record cops ourselves — you just know the graft would be too irrresistible for us.
Avatar 1:49pm Becky:

@Gaylord If bribing me is wrong, I just don't want to be right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm justinline:

Love Charlie Rich! Great track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Gaylord Fields:

Ah, Becky! I was anticipating the Charlie Rich [swoon!] portion of the program, and wondering how you'd represent the great man!
Avatar 2:04pm Becky:

@Gaylord He's just the greatest.
Avatar 2:04pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Does this remind anyone else of "The Beat Goes On"?
Avatar 2:06pm Mr. Fine Wine:

^^ (I mean "There's Another Place I Can't Go")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: He really is the unheralded (except by you and me) GOAT!
  2:09pm Mr C:

Did someone mention Charlie Rich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Michael 98145:

( Veronica Lake avatar! yay :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Gaylord Fields:

@Mr C: Represent!!! You have championed the man for decades!
  2:11pm Mr C:

WFMU is all on CR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm fred:

Becky, this is the first time I listen live, but I'm very familiar with your show's archives
  2:17pm Mr C:

Bringing the spirit of Laura Cantrell back to Saturday on FMU! Thanks Becky. You're crushing..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm pacific standard simon:

What Mr C said.
Avatar 2:18pm Becky:

Thanks, Mr C!!
  2:18pm Marie:

Loving the show, Becky. Nice to hear you on a Saturday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm fred:

@Mr C: You're so right. The radio thrift shop at last got a worthy successor airing on a Saturday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Gaylord Fields:

That Ray and Bob song is about you, Becky!
Avatar 2:23pm Becky:

Hey, everybody, if you click back to the main WFMU page, we'd really appreciate it if you threw us a little scratch as we are hard up at the moment! <3 BB

@Gaylord Guilty as charged!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: Just doing my job as an officer of L&O: SRU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm pacific standard simon:

My policy is to keep track of how much it cost WFMU to send me my marathon swag, then donate at the next level up in October. Works for my conscience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Eatcher heart out WWOZ. :)

* boneheaded is good *
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Greg from ZONE 5:

As with all things, the NJ version is better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm fred:

Brexit, Trump, Le Pen on the rise, and now WFMU in dire peril. At least it makes my heart disease look like a good thing. I don't want to live to see that world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...you don't suppose a teen Lennon heard this Robby John?
Avatar 2:43pm KP:

Great show, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: You have been pronounced GUILTY — of killer radio in the first degree. You are sentenced to one hour weekly community servive every Wednesday at 8 pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Gaylord Fields:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Michael 98145:

thank you, DJ Becky
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm ChrisB.:

Who signed off on those t-shirt designs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@ChrisB: You say that as if there is some sort of consensus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Astonishing rekkids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Goodbye, Cosmic Man, wherever you are. See you at your regular time, Becky. Take care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Parq:

Miss Becky, I wasn't home yesterday afternoon, so I'm catching up with the archive early Sunday evening and it's been one terrific show. It's easy to see why Rex is so comfortable trusting you with his time slot. See you next time.
