Hi, Gaylord and chums. Nice minty fresh playlist tonight. I have yet to hear your IRL interview with Emily & Kimzilla.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks, everyone! Now there's officially too much talk about me. :)
  8:18pm cheri:

spending sunday nights with the grand Gaylord is really such a delight!!

Gaylord! My marathon tchotchkes showed up on Friday. Had LOTSA fun driving around yesterday listening to your Square Ska comp. So many gems! You always make the best comps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@wendy del formaggio: MWAH!!! Just MWAH!!!
  8:42pm JakeGould:

Drink who hot? It’s too hot to drink hot stuffs. Maybe a nice cappuccino in a nice air conditioned cafe.
  8:42pm cheri:

got to go now grand Gaylord, have a very happy birthday, see you all next week!
  8:44pm wendy del formaggio:

An extra MWAH back atcha, Gaylord, for your birthday week. [insert balloons and confetti here. And cake. And DJ Shadow.]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@wendy del formaggio: [melts]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm melinda:

These are some wonderful tunes for the heat.
  8:49pm JakeGould:

@melinda: How nasty is it up there in Maine. So nasty in NYC.
  8:49pm Carmichael:

I heard there was another element recently named, and I thought The Professor would have to alter his song.
  8:49pm andrewb:

Ska comp?!? How did I miss that, I always panic during the pledge. So many brilliant Djs to choose from
  8:50pm JakeGould:

@AndrewB: You can still score a copy by pledging $75 or more right here. pledge.wfmu.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm melinda:

@Jake it cooled down a bit to low 80s today but my house is hot, supposed to get hotter tomorrow.
  8:51pm JtotheK:

whoa, that Les Baxter track was amazing and new to me. gonna have to check out more of that album! Hi Mr Fields, hi everyone.
  8:52pm wendy del formaggio:

The DJ Shadow ==> Les Baxter / 101 Strings segue was fabulous. Our judges gave it a "10."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm melinda:

wendy I agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Gaylord Fields:

@JtotheK: It's a surprisingly good record, but 101 Strings ca. 1970s was full of surprises.
  8:53pm JakeGould:

@melinda: Well, hope the house cools down like a loaf of bread. Here in NYC it was like 92 degrees and that doesn’t factor in the humidity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: Thanks for pointing @andrewb in the right direction.
  8:54pm JakeGould:

You’re welcome!
  8:54pm wendy del formaggio:

Jake and melinda: I'm having the same shitty weather here in SE VT. Tomorrow's supposed to be worse. [quietly sobs]
  8:55pm Carmichael:

Tanker planes are flying out of a nearby airbase 24/7 to drop retardant on our flaming state. Bryce would use them as accompaniment, but they’re a distraction this evening.
  8:56pm JtotheK:

@GF - and brief internet research finds a track from LB & 101 also issued on 45 ... the 101 Strings 45 ‘karma sitar’ is a good one, too!
  8:57pm JakeGould:

@wendydelformaggio: Well, to be fair it is August.
  8:59pm wendy del formaggio:

But Jake, it's unusual to have such heat waves in VT. Last year I used my air conditioner maybe 5 days. This year? Oy vey. I actually killed an AC this summer. Dead. Kaput.
  9:01pm JakeGould:

Speaking of cold and heat, everyone hear about this: ”Man Found in Cafe Freezer Attacks Worker, Then Dies, Police Say” The guy shouted, “Away, Satan!” after an employee opened the freezer. www.nytimes.com...

But you know as crazy as that is all it made me think of is how great it was to sit in the walk in freezer during my first teenage job. Damn, I would love to walk into a freezer right now.

@WendyDelFormaggio: My heart and cool thoughts go out to you!
  9:02pm emmagineering:

very much enjoying the show gaylord. also thanks for the most recent IRL interview, v. fascinating! we collaborated on amadeos residents tribute a few years ago in jc .ive never taken in more black light?
  9:03pm xtina:

How perfect to tune now and hear Carole.
  9:04pm medson:

Good evening Gaylord and everyone. Joining in from a tranquil Cape May this evening.
  9:04pm wendy del formaggio:

Thanks, JakeGould! :-)
I also have many fond memories of sitting in the walk-in when I was a 'monger. "Oh sure! I'll go get that 40-lb block of cheddar!" 20 minutes later... A chilled Wendy.

@katie: She's my favorite songwriter. Hands down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Gaylord Fields:

@medson: Glad you can keep cool by the shore.
  9:07pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I grew up near the dumpy Brooklyn shore so real inland-ish temperatures flip me out still.
Avatar 🎸 9:08pm katie:

Yep, Re: Carole. That's why I wanted to be here when I was 8.

What album is the April March track from, Gaylord?!
Avatar 9:12pm TDK60:

Hey, this and that reminded me of Broadcast and Stereolab, a bit. Influences and/or similarities bouncing around the airwaves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Gaylord Fields:

@Jeezy: It's the one she did with the French group Aquaserge.

@Gaylord, very nice, I'll send them a letter and tell them the name of my favorite Gemüse
  9:21pm famous original sugarwolf:

Tomorrow is also the 35th anniversary of Klaus Nomi's death.

And my friend's 37th birthday! I've known her since before she was born!
  9:22pm famous original sugarwolf:

I don't know how I managed that as I am only 28.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@famous original sugarwolf: You should space out your friends' birthdays a bit more, otherwise you'll exhaust your birthday present budget.
  9:25pm JakeGould:

One should always Fibonacci sequence birthday wishes.
  9:27pm famous original sugarwolf:

Gaylord: my mother has about 5 or 6 friends with August birthdays!

My friend's siblings also have summer birthdays because they are teachers' children.

  9:31pm Milson:

Nice Buckingham jam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@Milson: I'm a huge fan of the man's music.
  9:37pm Carmichael:

I’m afraid of Buckingham. He has that light in his eyes ....
Avatar 9:40pm DC:

These instrumental tracks this evening are reflecting wonderfully upon the ear

Carmichael, glad you're safe.
  9:49pm phat:

I seriously think this version of Purple Haze is the best version.
Avatar 9:49pm TDK60:

Wow, a very different take on Purple. Never heard before.
Avatar 9:50pm TDK60:

Well, DJ & friends, I'm heading out in 2 days for an overseas music fest, and camping. See you in 3 weeks!
