favorite hour of the week.
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

@Gaylord: It's a goddamn rainforest in here. My records are getting even more warped.
  8:12pm davefromtoronto:

did you get brazilian waxed for yours, gaylord?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Serious poetry from George this one. Learned that from Hank maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm ericd:

Just recently heard an interview with John Prine and he had never heard this George Jones song until he covered it on his new covers album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Gaylord Fields:

@davefromtoronto: I'm not blessed with a lot of body hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Becky. I hope you don't suffer ill effects from the roasting studio. Good chance to lay some phone books on your records and flatten them out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: And by "warped," you don't just mean the recorded content. Maybe you can use your dress shields to blot them.
Avatar 8:17pm JakeGould:

These comments are all TMI.
  8:17pm davefromtoronto:

prove it Gman!
Avatar 8:19pm Mailman Tom:

Hot enough for you, Becky?
Avatar 8:20pm Becky:

Irwin helpfully called up and told me the secret: open a door!
  8:20pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

That's crazy....Country Ska , love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Tome:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm ericd:

This Ed Townsend song is nuts!
  8:22pm davefromtoronto:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@Becky: Speaking of getting Sleepy...
  8:24pm quietlyartistic:

Strange request... I'm cleaning a rental space in Tucson for a Mexican restaurant's Christmas party right now, is there any song you can play that ties in a theme of old Mexico? Give a little shout out to my señorita who is hear cleaning with me? ¡Muchas gracias!
Avatar 8:25pm dale:

loved that cherrigale tune becky!
Avatar 8:29pm JakeGould:

“Open a Door!” Now that is some sage wisdom.
Avatar 8:29pm Becky:

@quietlyartistic Oh boy - I'll see what I can do.
Avatar 8:31pm JakeGould:

This “Bear Cat Mountain Girl”… I like her style!
Avatar 8:31pm dale:

why isn't she gonna marry a bearcat mountan man? never mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Uncle Michael:

Becky, you really need to read this article. It will resonate, I promise.
Avatar 8:41pm dale:

'i didn't cry today' - little steps. nice tune.
Avatar 8:41pm Becky:

@Uncle Michael: This is basically my favorite topic in the world, and I haven't read this. So excited. THANK YOU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Uncle Michael:

My pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Uncle Michael:

If you haven't read the Oxford American's Charlie Rich profile, you'll want to seek that out too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Did someone say "Charlie Rich"?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Uncle Michael:

Someone did!
  8:47pm Listener Robert:

I know you WFMU DJs reeaalllly know music, so if you said that piece a while ago resembled ska, I have to revise my idea of ska.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gaylord Fields:

But yes, I had read the Charlie Rich article, and if he wasn't already my No. 1 all-time favorite, he would have won that top spot after reading about him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm pinholga:

Madness invented ska.
Avatar 8:49pm Becky:

Huh. This record seems to have a crack in it. I blame Jerry Lee.
  8:49pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I do a Ska version of "3rd Rate Romance" on piano, it really works
  8:50pm quietlyartistic:

Thanks Becky.
  8:50pm Listener Robert:

Then again, I thought rock & roll came from cha-cha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Uncle Michael:

I know a guy that does Don McLean's "Vincent" as a ska/reggae number.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Did he just pronounce it "Frez-a-no"? If he did, so will I from here on.
Avatar 8:53pm The_Luntz:

My friend helped invent this machine that eliminates old record noise like pops. Here is the link:

  8:56pm Listener Robert:

Just now, looking for an example of rock & roll that's really cha-cha, I found out "Come on, Ali" is actually "Come on, Eileen" -- but at least this time I have a LOT of company in mishearing it; I Mondegreen like crazy.
Avatar 8:58pm Becky:

@Luntz: That's amazing for rare records - I just need to be less of a cheapskate and mint up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hm. I always heard Ska was Jazz Backwards...Jump Blues is almost Ska you think about it...Thx that link UM! 'Twist & Shout' is a Latin Beat...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Uncle Michael:

Thnx Becky!
Avatar 9:01pm The_Luntz:
