Hey! :-)
  4:01pm Martinibomb:

This will be a different show from last week. Playing with my format
  4:02pm Martinibomb:

I just got a beer tho. Cause I deserve one today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Dutchman Jan:

Yes, formats are to be played with!
Avatar 4:02pm Otis Fodder:

Reeeeeeeee is today's Verb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Rich in Washington:

The verb's the werb.
Avatar 4:03pm Otis Fodder:

Yesssssss we are here.
  4:03pm Martinibomb:

Nice rich! Verb is the word
Avatar 4:04pm Mr Fab:

We deserve beer everyday. Like I say, it's always Saturday night at Sheena's Jungle Room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Is it Lay Low - or La Low? I've never been sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Isn't/wasn't he Hungarian ... so La Low?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LaVern Baker!!!! My 2 year old niece is obsessed with her - and the Hedwig fan in me approves :-)
  4:07pm Martinibomb:

I'm super obsessed with LaVern Baker.. like all of her songs are super kick arse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ah ... work. Does this relate to what we were all talking about yesterday? :-)
  4:08pm Martinibomb:

Why yes it does bwhahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

  4:09pm Martinibomb:

IT's a musical sigil lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm doing the groovy head bop here in bed in my PJs :-)
Avatar 4:10pm Mr Fab:

Gotta play this episode at Labor Day bbqs.

Do people in other lands have May Day bbq parties?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We have Bank holidays which most people spend doing DIY or visiting the seaside.
Avatar 4:11pm glenn:

i dearly love a martini,
just one or two at the most.
at three i'm under the table,
at four i'm under the host.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Dutchman Jan:

Mr F not here that I know of. Lot's of other excuses to organize bbq's nonetheless.
  4:12pm Martinibomb:

@glenn -- yeah I can't drink much anymore. Maybe 1 Martini is as far as I can go these days
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Although ... in Brighton the Fringe and the Festival is in May so May Day is pretty much the start of a month of madness :-)
Avatar 4:13pm Mr Fab:

One can be enough, if it's made right!
  4:15pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab That's a good point!
Avatar 4:16pm glenn:

i've never actually had a martini. i find gin unpalatable at best.
  4:17pm Martinibomb:

@Glenn I could totally see that. It took me awhile to develop a taste for gin
Avatar 4:18pm Mr Fab:

Vodka martinis are great. Well, they can be ,depending on who makes em.
  4:19pm Martinibomb:

I like vodka martini with the lemon twist but gin I like it dirty olive where they poor the brine in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Olive brine = yummy
Avatar 4:20pm glenn:

plus i find cocktails just a little precious.
  4:23pm Martinibomb:

Just so you know every time I hear a song fading out I think I need to hit the play button.. lol it's so odd pre-recording shows. Hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Same - silence makes me panic!
Avatar 4:25pm Mr Fab:

Cocktails have gotten more precious over the years, but old school cocktails like Manhattan or a proper Mai Tai (NO fruit juice!) will get ya there.
But i def succumb to the occasional charms of girly drinks like Cosmos. I am secure enough in my masculinity!
Avatar 4:26pm Otis Fodder:

Nothing like my go-to.... Old Fashioned.
  4:26pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab Mai Tai isn't suppose to have lime juice? What's your fave recipe?
Avatar 4:27pm Otis Fodder:

Big fan of old school cocktails. In my teens to early 20s, I had my Boones Farm to Fancy Drink phases. Settled into classic cocktails now. Martini. Whiskey neat (or on rocks). Old Fashioned. Vodka Tonic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was involved in a Fringe production of Hedwig and the bar did a cocktail called the Filthy Slut - Jagermeister, Peach Schnapps and some kind of juice. That thing was dangerous. So I've heard ;-) lol
Avatar 4:28pm Otis Fodder:

Oh dear lord. That would be my drink at age 19. Not 49!
Avatar 4:29pm Otis Fodder:

This song, Dollar Sign, is boss.
Avatar 4:29pm Mr Fab:

Well, i mean the Mai Tais that throw in lots of pineapple juice, etc. Ones based on Trader Vics orig recipe dont do that.
  4:29pm Martinibomb:

I got my Trader Vic's bartender's guide when I was 17 and had to drool over it for the next 4 years. @Otis dollar sign yeah this song is awesom I got it on 45
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I just favourited it - it's really good!
Avatar 4:30pm Otis Fodder:

First time heard it, will look up the Revels.
Avatar 4:31pm Mr Fab:

Well anything with Jager is bound to be dangerous
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I mean I couldn't possibly comment because I didn't have six after a show and I didn't end up on the beach at 3am. Nope. Not me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

To be honest tho, when I hit 50 I couldn't really drink that much any more. Now an occasional glass of a good red is fine by me. A conversation lubricant. But really really occasional.
  4:33pm Martinibomb:

Something Mr. Fab said last week made me loosen up my mix this week and not worry so much about playing stuff that's super far out - trying to make this over all mix say something and not worry about the individual songs as much rather the big picture if that makes sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love both of your shows to be fair - I think you're doing a great job!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think we're all super creative people and so we hear every single pop and hiss and glitch in our own mixes and worry about that - whereas everyone else hears a great mix and has a good time. :-)
  4:38pm Martinibomb:

I personally enjoy mistakes and totally okay with failing
Avatar 4:39pm Mr Fab:

Right! like I said , the station wasn't about being the most weird, the most obscure.. just the COOLEST
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Well it is most definitely that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Ravens as in The Kinks?
  4:40pm Martinibomb:

@Mr Fab E X A C T Y
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

OOOOOO!!! This is GREAT!
Avatar 4:42pm Otis Fodder:

Ahhh yes, coming into our shows, testing out technically how we play platters to our vocal vernaculars. It's a happening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Dutchman Jan:

yes, can't sit still in my chair
  4:42pm Martinibomb:

I was kidding about exacty.. i misspelled it on purpose. Hope you guys get the joke... lolI'm such a goof
Avatar 4:42pm Otis Fodder:

All hail the Boss Lady!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Just turned the volume UP in my phones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Big Boss Man!!! I saw them just after my birthday this year! They were FAB!
  4:44pm Martinibomb:

No way! Yeah I love this song cause they cover a song and work psyche rock into it as well it's fucking amazing
Avatar 4:45pm Mr Fab:

Pierre Henrys "Psych Rock"?
  4:45pm Martinibomb:

@GG I need to send you some Satin Chaps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It was a venue above this really cool pub in Brighton called The Hope and Ruin - June so hotter than Hell but they were an absolute blast!
  4:45pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab yeah isn't it kinda worked into the backrground of this? Isn't that Psyche Rock?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yes please!!! :-)
  4:46pm Martinibomb:

The organ part on that Big Boss Man sounds like psyche rock to me
Avatar 4:47pm Mr Fab:

Dont think its sampled exactly, but authentically remade, I'd say.
Avatar 4:48pm Otis Fodder:

I like the bosses in charge at this firm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It sounds like a groovy company to work for!
Avatar 4:49pm glenn:

wynn wins.
  4:49pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab agree. So I'm not totally insane. It really seems like they did that on purpose
Avatar 4:49pm Otis Fodder:

"the boss told me, i get paid weekly..." ... lots of work but the bosses, man on whoa-man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo that guitar :-)
Avatar 4:50pm glenn:

laughing at the idea of england ever being hotter than hell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

About the last decade it's slowly crept up into unbearable every summer. It was so bad this last summer that every retailer sold out of electric fans :-(
Avatar 4:51pm glenn:

the kinks, eh? www.cbc.ca...
Avatar 4:53pm Otis Fodder:

This is great. Call my job. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That is one hell of a groove
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Dutchman Jan:

Just had too much weekend lol!
  4:53pm Martinibomb:

I love how this song starts best intro ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Great episode! You have made my lurgy bearable :-)
  4:55pm Martinibomb:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Dutchman Jan:

Great show! Thanks MB!
Avatar 4:56pm Otis Fodder:

  4:56pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for listening Jan. What other station would let you burp on the air
  4:56pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for listening everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:
