@Rob, weird. No avatar, either. Database corrupted? Stolen identity?

@Sheila, in memory of Dr. John, I would suggest The Dixie Cups singing Iko Iko. And yes, his version was also a cover ...

Seems like Niki is overdue for a new one?

Crystals sounding great as always, followed beautifully by Bat For Lashes. Very nice broadcast today, glad to listen. Took me for a bit of a journey of memories thinking about the service entrances of Manhattan. The last five years I spent rolling dollies in and out of those entrances nearly seven days a week. They are cities within the city. 8 months or so met a girl and decided to take a jump moving across the country, and now the manhattan service entrances are made of memories instead of concrete to me. I once worked in a building where the doors were made of gold and were not meant to be shut, haha, I'll reserve my opinion about how I felt about that, but it's fun to look back upon. Anyhow, thank you DJ Sheila B, have a wonderful week/end everyone, peace!

Went to star this Niki song, found I'd already starred it. My guess it I did it on one of your previous playlists! Thanks, Sheila!!

You can buy Sade on vinyl at Urban Outfitters, so she's not *un*popular ... The one that mystifies me is Cassandra Wilson
