  3:14pm Adrian in London:

Public Service Announcement: If you’re in the U.K. air can access the BBC iPlayer, the documentary about BROS When The Screaming Stops is utterly essential viewing. Seriously. Sibling rivalry, conkers, mental breakdowns, a bulldog holding a pint of beer, manscaping - it has it all.

I'm stuck with Ramon Morris' instrumental version of "People Make The World Go Round" (maybe because it had been sampled so often).
Avatar 3:17pm Cecile:

Yeah, I'm trying to buy German iTunes tracks or even UK ones. It is ridiculous and impossible.

Successfully cast a spell with those first three songs...

Avatar 3:49pm djsheilab:

Hey RRNov63!
  3:49pm Listener Robert:

Ms. B., did you consider the possibility that the mystery sound came from someone ELSE who ALSO had a large collection of records to move up or down the stairs?

I gather from above that you now have your moving help...but who's going to help you lug that portion of your collection back and forth every time you DJ here?
Avatar 3:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'ma link again to Cocaine & Rhinestones about Bobbie Gentry - so you can hear about the album they're really covering / interpreting - anybody don't know all about this stuff... :
Avatar 3:53pm djsheilab:

Listener Robert—HAHA! That would be very possible but at 4:30AM??!!! It's madness! Sadly, fine lookin' big burly moving men only with me on my moving day. Otherwise all the lugging is up to me! YIKES.
Avatar 3:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The not fun part of vinyl petroleum-based artifacts...
Avatar 3:57pm djsheilab:

RRNov63—There was a great New Yorker cartoon about collecting vinyl a couple years back. Quite funny.
  3:57pm Jocelyn:

Sheila, I've done that too! I ended up spending two hours on the second spin website replacing all the cd's I tossed and gave away

@Jocelyn: Moving my records/books cost me fortune to come . Full time/non-contract or non-freelance jobs in NYC are hard to come by in my field and my experience. (I think I know most of the people there that do what I do).

thank you for making winter a bit less wintry

Glad Charlotte is still in business

No plans, working. 2018 went by fast. I can't believe it's almost 2019! Feels like yesterday I was celebrating the 2000 rollover.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Michael 98145:

feels like yesterday we were dreading Y2K
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Rob Kopp:

While listening, I'm scanning the archive of Platenclub (=recordclub) Utrecht that was made by co-member John Ravensberg for everybody (7 members). 4 volumes, each about 150 pages. 25 years of record club history. So fun to read and look at.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Michael 98145:

@Rob, now that is a serious record club
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Rob Kopp:

Beside collecting records, we're sometimes also releasing them (since 1994 only 12!)
Avatar 5:07pm djsheilab:

efd—Good stuff, right?!
Avatar 5:07pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp—WOAH! You guys mean business!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Rob Kopp:

Forget the business. With every release we have to lay in some money, so it's more kind of a hobby.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Handy Haversack:

Is _Albatross_ the album, too, or is it a single?
  5:12pm Jocelyn:

I still have my y2k dress. And it still fits!
Avatar 5:13pm djsheilab:

Handy Haversack—It's a single.

My y2k apartment was tiny, and it's bigger than the one I have now!

Dear DJ, i think the Kali record cover is appearing twice in the playlist

In case anyone has some holiday bucks not spent yet, there's time to give to WFMU and collect a sweet 2018 tax break: pledge.wfmu.org...

Is it just me, or does Thanh Lan sound like the Barry Sisters?

My y2k apartment was at the Chelsea. Oh I loved it

Where is this from?

Rob Kopp—Spain!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Rob Kopp:

Didn't sound like Spanish to me. Other language?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Handy Haversack:

This show made our 2018 better. You're sending out the joy! Have a great New Year!
  5:36pm Jocelyn:

And it's such a delight to spend every Friday with you. I can't remember my Fridays before your show:
  5:37pm Gaylord Fields:

Just found out about Jerry Riopelle, and I missed the tribute portion of your show. Thank you for commemorating his life and music!
  5:37pm RomanDogBird:

Friday's have become such a highlight of the week because of this show. Looking forward to plenty more in 2019!
Avatar 5:38pm djsheilab:

Hey Gaylord! Just blissing out to those five records of his was pure joy. I know how much you adore his writings + productions as well.
Avatar 5:39pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp—Oh! Must've been the record before. That was from Vietnam.
Avatar 5:40pm djsheilab:

Thanks RomanDogBird + Jocelyn + Handy Haversack!

Hello! Happy Friday (even if it's wet and miserable)!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Rob Kopp:

When you're gonna play another Riopelle set, I think I'm going down and listen the last 30 minutes of SBB in 2018 with my wife. Thanks for this year, Sheila, until 2019 and I wish everybody a great and healthy new year.
  5:42pm P-90:

“Here’s to Life” scores high on the “Atmospheric” meter
  5:42pm Gaylord Fields:

I really do, Sheila, as do you, of course! His Clydie King songs slay me every time! (And if someone had $200 lying around to get me that “Missin’ My Baby” I will name a child or cat after you.)
  5:43pm Jocelyn:

That goes for all of you too! I enjoy our Friday chats
  5:44pm Rick G:

Cheerful new year! Thanks for your show. I’m usually at work here on the West Coast but I make a point of listening for at least an hour. Greetings from Port Orchard WA.

No throwing tomatoes at me for my next song choice!
  5:45pm JakeGould:

Wow, this Ariane Moffatt is so nice.
  5:45pm JakeGould:

Oh no! Here comes a Disney tune!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:46pm tneeld:

2018 was better than the admittedly low bar that 2017 set. For that I’m super happy. It was also the year I discovered Sophisticated Boom Boom and that plays a big part in the goodness of the year. Thanks to Sheila B and Happy New Year to all!

Why would anyone throw tomatoes over this song?
Avatar 5:49pm northguineahills:

aw man, I had a soggy orange all ready to throw.....
  5:49pm Jocelyn:

Never heard this version of Your song. The feels it gives!!
Avatar 5:50pm djsheilab:

JakeGould—Because a lot of people detest Elton John. I don't understand it. He was such an amazing songwriter.
Avatar 5:51pm TDK60:

Elton John's debut tune, (as far as we knew at that time).

i confess i do not detest Mr John
  5:53pm P-90:

Brilliant Cissy arrangement/performance of a classic song
  5:54pm JakeGould:

@DJSheilaB: ELTON JOHN IS GOOD!!! Anyone who wants to throw. tomatoes over Elton John should go make a salad instead.
