Singles Going Steady or business as usual for this show
  8:07pm Anthony:

Is this a fundraiser
  8:08pm Anthony:

I wish this show was more than one hour. Best show on WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Becky:

@Anthony Thank you! Indeed, if you click that little pledge bar over there, you can make sure this show is on the radio for ever and ever (unless I muck it up)!
  8:14pm yippie:

I especially like tontines style

Ain't no honkytonks out on the open range
Avatar 8:17pm Ken in Tucson:

Howdy from way out west! Much obliged, ma'am. P.S. Most trucker songs are Western songs, IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Becky:

@Ken Agreed! If you see a cactus, it's probably Western. Even if you drive by it.
  8:19pm Anthony:

This show reminds me of WSM only hipper. This isn't Taylor Swift's country music. Is she even considered country anymore? Both kinds of music, Country and Western!

I've seen a few people grow a cactus or 2 in their nyc apartments
Avatar 8:28pm Ken in Tucson:

@yippie That is just wrong.
Avatar 8:29pm JakeGould:

I have succulents in my Brooklyn apartment and they are doing fine don’t @ me.
  8:30pm Will:

Feels good to have discogs nearby to further check out these nuggets.
  8:30pm ?:

Lorne Green?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Becky:

@Will I've had trouble finding them all on Discogs!
Avatar 8:31pm JakeGould:

Oh Ringo… We knew by the tone his life was not long.
  8:32pm ALiteralWizard:

This sounds like it could be about the actual Johnny ringo
  8:33pm ALiteralWizard:

One google later confirms that it is
  8:33pm Anthony:

Becky where do find all of these? Are they all singles or are some of them on comps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Becky:

@Anthony: Some of them might be on comps! I found them all on 45s.
Avatar 8:34pm Glennz_Cat:

I could have sworn Lorne Green did a version of "Ringo"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Becky:

@Glennz_Cat He did! I to explain.
Avatar 8:35pm JakeGould:

OMFG SPAGHETTI CAT IS BACK!
Avatar 8:35pm Glennz_Cat:

Ohhh! ...Thanks!
Avatar 8:35pm Glennz_Cat:

Ha!
  8:42pm yippie:

ho yeah I had to square dance in nj public schools
Avatar 8:42pm Glennz_Cat:

I wish you had that record we had to square dance to back in the 4th grade
  8:43pm ALiteralWizard:

I have this on a mix cassette called "speeding ticket"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Oh god, Glennz, I might have a seizure.
Avatar 8:43pm JakeGould:

Sorry but no square dancing in Brooklyn public schools in the 1970s.
Avatar 8:43pm Glennz_Cat:

That's how I got the Cooties
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

I was square dancing in NJ well into the 90s.

Look at these covers! www.wagonwheelrecords.net...
Avatar 8:45pm JakeGould:

“Square dancing is a fun way to get kids up and moving about. This traditional dance builds skills for memorization, coordination, team-building and self-esteem.”
  8:45pm J&E in Ithaca NY:

Grew up in North Jersey , Square dance class was done in the gym; on days when the record player wasn’t working they’d roll out an old army parachute and everybody would hold the outside of the chute, and we’d toss one kid skyward.
  8:47pm yippie:

they even had square dancing down south in Atlantic City
Avatar 8:47pm JakeGould:

@J&E: Now that sounds like a well thought out plan of activities for kids.
  8:48pm ALiteralWizard:

A friend of mine years ago kept inviting me to a local square dancing thing.

Is it worth giving it a go?
  8:48pm AL:

In NJ we had mother-son and father-daughter square dances.
  8:48pm yippie:

we only had it with other classmates and a couple teachers
Avatar 8:48pm JakeGould:

“El Pizza” is amazing!
Avatar 8:49pm JakeGould:

In Brooklyn we just figured out new ways to play tag in the schoolyard until someone was injured. Oh well!
  8:49pm Ochre Ogre:

Yep, I remember the Ringo version by Lorne Greene. Thought that sounded a little different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm KidProJoe:

Square danced in Chicago public school in the 80s/90s. We also warmed up with the Robert Preston Chicken Fat record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

@KidProJoe I own that 45!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm KidProJoe:

Hearing that would send shivers down my spine! Then I'd do some push ups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Becky:

@KidProJoe I've been thinking of doing an hour of some of the absolute weirdest records I own - so maybe stay tuned next week!
  8:56pm Johnzon:

howdy cowpokes... great show today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm KidProJoe:

I'm on board with that for sure
Avatar 8:59pm JakeGould:

This was quite a good show for a show that has many good shows.
