Lovin' the cool honky tonk! Helps dull the pain of another stupid Mets loss....

give her a swirl. a counterclockwise swirl.
Avatar 8:18pm dale:

oh, this is gothic. nick cave could record this jimmy bowen tune! imagine nick cave as a grocery clerk?
  8:19pm Zydeco Phil:

Lovin these awesome honky tonk rarities!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm ultradamno:

I could hear it as a great Gun Club cover, if JLP were still around.
Avatar 8:20pm Becky:

Hey, thanks for tuning in to this first show of the summer season!
  8:20pm Will:

I try to resist this kind of music on some sort of snob level (not my fault, grew up in Westport, CT) but when Becky plays it I cannot resist. Please don't hate me for saying "this kind of music."
Avatar 8:22pm Becky:

@Will - I grew up in suburban New Jersey. No excuses!
Avatar 8:22pm dale:

isn't monica a highland park girl?
Avatar 8:24pm Becky:

@dale - the Highland Park from my neck of the woods? (Metuchen)
  8:25pm Will:

I do so want to visit New Jersey again soon. The only time I've ever been in Jersey City, my car was stolen (1987). Trying not to hold a grudge. This show is terrific tonight.
Avatar 8:26pm Becky:

@Will - As someone who lived in Jersey City in 1987, it was basically a rite of passage. Congratulations - you can safely return.
Avatar 8:27pm dale:

no....i meant illiinois.
Avatar 8:28pm Becky:

@dale - Oh! The home of the world's oldest Coney Island!
Avatar 8:30pm dale:

my car was towed only time i drove to hoboken. hd to take the subway back into the city to borrow money form someone....and this was pre cell phone and atm times so everything was tenuous and possibly not going to happen leaving you to sleep in the path station.
Avatar 8:30pm Becky:

@dale And Yvonne's from Hamtramck, I believe.
  8:31pm Will:

Oh, it wasn't so bad. Somebody called me from JCPD and told me my stolen car was in a JC lot somewhere and to go pay the fine (!) to get it out. We went down and all the wheels had been removed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm steveo:

Great dish-washing music tonight. My spouse says ok to candy, but I can keep the lies. I worked in Jersey City in the early 00s and I already don't recognize it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Richard S:

there are many parts of NJ that are nice. The farther away you are from the NYC-Philly corridor, the nicer they are.
  8:36pm Zydeco Phil:

The world should turn off the dang CMT awards and put on 91.1 for chrissake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In the early 90s, I visited Cape May and my car got towed. No horror stories about stolen wheels, luckily.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm PigeonsAndRust:

I am sitting out on the porch and both the bullfrogs and the neighbors are being treated to your music. Great show tonight!
Avatar 8:39pm dale:

nothing makes an enjoyable hour like 30 two minute songs! variety keeps her fresh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm PigeonsAndRust:

I went to Stevens in Hoboken and once saw someone's car booted for being ten minutes overtime in a four hour zone. It was towed, with the boot on it, twenty minutes later! This was in 2003
Avatar 8:41pm Becky:

Hoboken is notorious! I've never managed to park there without having to call the damn number to get the clamp off my tire!
Avatar 8:41pm dale:

taking my smart aleck comments off line. g'night!
  8:42pm SeanG:

honky tonkin'!!
  8:46pm Will:

Yes, back on topic, tonight's show is epic!
Avatar 8:49pm Becky:

this record's a little problematic
  8:53pm miles:

skip skuzz n buzz no problem haha
  8:55pm miles:

I'm late to the party
Avatar 8:56pm Becky:

we're deep in the problems now
  8:56pm andrewb:

For probably most fmu listners clicks and pops are a plus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Richard S:

The warm comforting sound of vinyl
  8:57pm Will:

I have to admit that the crackle of these records is one of my favorite parts of this show (and several others). Is that a diagnosed fetish at this point?
Avatar 8:57pm JakeGould:

Too much snap and crackle can adversely affect the pop.
  9:08pm Bob Sagerer:

Nice track in there tonight - "Stormy Years" by Hank Forthman. wonder if anyone knows about who played on it? Sounded like Rufus Thibodeaux playing fiddle...maybe Ben Keith on steel guitar? Thanks Honky Tonk Radio Girl!
