Pledge now and you won’t get shot in the legs!
  8:05pm BH:

gonna pretend that the Can-Con Canadian version of Ken Burns documentary includes way more Hank Snow.
Avatar 8:06pm JakeGould:

If they had alligators and snakes in a moat at the southern border, why wouldn’t it all decay like all other southwest tourist traps. Like sad and/or dead alligators and snakes and a dried out moat and a sun faded “Don’t Cross!” sign?

  8:08pm P-90:

...and a gift shop shack with a corrugated metal roof and faded post cards for sale
Avatar 8:09pm JakeGould:

Also, how do you budget for alligators and snakes? Like if they capture and consume a lot of people, does the food budget go down?
Avatar 8:10pm JakeGould:

Whoa! Another one of these parallel playlist things… wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm ultradamno:

The original plan was a tribute version of the Great Wall of China, so that was kind of an incremental move toward Earth for him...
Avatar 8:12pm Becky:

Yeah, I can't figure out the playlist thing. Sorry guys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm ultradamno:

Some would appreciate the political and non-political playlist options.
  8:14pm Chuck W:

the playlist is broke, everyone donate more money to fix it!
Avatar 8:14pm JakeGould:

I once trespassed on Air Force property as a teen. Checked out plane wreckage. The only guy protecting the place eventually showed up. Old coot in a bathrobe slippers and a gun who lived in the trailer on the lot. Just saying! An alligator would have been an upgrade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Richard S:

Ah, this is a nicer color.
Avatar 8:17pm JakeGould:

I don’t see color! I just see different shades of blues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm ultradamno:

The Garbage Time dayglo green and and Reggae Schoolroom yellow are pretty rough.
  8:19pm Zydeco Phil:

That musta been early Lefty. Nice one Becky!!!!!
Avatar 8:19pm JakeGould:

Oh, to change the topic to nicer things, today is Raccoon Appreciation Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Bootsie:

Listening on my way back to New York from Asbury. Making that last stop in Jersey for cheap gas and had to chime in and say I'm enjoying the double shot!
Avatar 8:21pm Becky:

If I recall, I picked these colors out ages ago. Glad you like them.
  8:21pm P-90:

Welcome to tonight’s edition of “Schrodinger’s Playlist”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

We (or just I) were talking raccoons on Burn It Down playlist last night. About that time they attacked the band Prince Rama (not to blame the victim, but it seems to me if you get attacked by raccoons in the park, you were probably messing with raccoons in the park)
Avatar 8:22pm JakeGould:

Oh well… Yesterday was Raccoon Appreciation Day.
  8:23pm P-90:

A rascally raccoon once knocked Mr. Fine Wine right off the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Richard S:

One should show more love to Opossums.....just sayin'
Avatar 8:24pm JakeGould:

Opossums are cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm loveless:

Argh! Work calls keep interrupting my Honky Tonk Radio Girl time. I consider this hour, self-care!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ultradamno:

I see a few of them a year around here. They're cool dudes most times.
Avatar 8:25pm JakeGould:

There was a raccoon on the roof of my 4 story building that literally climbed down the fire escape but made sure to look in everyone’s kitchens.
  8:27pm cheri the duff:

Hello becky and all, i am having so much fun tonight!!!
  8:29pm cheri the duff:

so becky,, what"s up tonigt??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm ultradamno:

Raccoons do steal from cats though www.youtube.com...
Avatar 8:30pm JakeGould:

I saw a bunch of baby raccoons stealing from cats in Sunset Park near the bus depot. Hard to know what to feel at that moment. But the baby raccoons sure were cute.
  8:32pm Bradley C:

If Becky somehow plays a C+W cover of Rocky Racoon, I'm gonna lose my shit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Richard S:

I'm a Swag for Lifer. If I sign up again as a SfL, do I live twice as long?
  8:35pm Paul in the OC:

& back for the second hour. Killing it as usual! Wot? Stompin’ Tom coming up? Now THAT is Canada!
  8:36pm Zootopia:

Where is the playlist?
  8:36pm Zootopia:

this resembles Uneasy Rider
Avatar 8:37pm JakeGould:

I think it’s here now: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Due to recent budget constraints, playlists have been removed from the agenda. If the fundraising campaign is successful, they may return someday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Richard S:

Suddenly I'm thinking of "30,000 Pounds of Bananas" by Harry Chapin.
Avatar 8:37pm cowboylarry:

YES!

Avatar 8:38pm Becky:

sorry for the playlist difficulties - Jake is right, it's on the Weekly World Blues page for some reason.
Avatar 8:38pm Becky:

@Bradley now I'm on a quest to find one
  8:39pm Zootopia:

I bet Charlie Daniels ripped this guy off
  8:39pm Chuck W:

"pahdaydohs"
Avatar 8:39pm JakeGould:

I’m eating potatoes right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Richard S:

Bake em, boil em, mash em in a stew
  8:41pm cheri the duff:

So @Becky, how have you been??
  8:42pm P-90:

Raccoons will eat potatoes when nothing else is available
  8:43pm Bradley C:

#racoonfacts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Richard S:

I've read that potatoes and milk contain all the vitamins and nutrients you need to live.
  8:44pm Chuck W:

@richard, i think Bowie wrote that in 1978
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm ultradamno:

If it worked for Matt Damon on Mars....
Avatar 8:46pm JakeGould:

@RichardS: That’s exactly why Poles (like me) and the Irish tend to be bloated, pasty, sensitive to the sun and get into fights all the time. All that pale white nutrition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Richard S:

@Jake - I'm a nice Polish boy, too!
  8:49pm P-90:

“Well, can we build a moat and fill it with potatoes?”
Avatar 8:49pm JakeGould:

I have a Chinese co-worker who likes to remind us all that parts of China eat more potatoes than rice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm ultradamno:

I'd like to request that Jeannie C. Riley song about those hypocrites.
Avatar 8:50pm cowboylarry:

Yes.
  8:50pm Czesław O'Shaughnessy:

I'm half Polish and half Irish! Those potatos are ruining my life!
Avatar 8:52pm JakeGould:

Remember when Dan Quayle was a laughing stock because he couldn’t spell “potato?” Oh, what innocent times those were!
  8:52pm Zootopia:

he did spell potatoe correct
  8:53pm P-90:

Famous “tic-tac bass” solo there. Genius song writing and production all around.
Avatar 8:53pm RobinSays:

Ah, "Wichita Lineman" so achingly beautiful. Thanx for playing this, Becky. Love your show:)
Avatar 8:54pm JakeGould:

@Zootopia: Haha! With spelling like that you can never be President! Haha! Now go enjoy your hamberder and liddle cup of covefe.
  8:55pm Zootopia:

Potatoe
Potatoe is an older but still correct spelling of the word more commonly word spelled potato. It turns out that Dan Quail and the young student were both correct in there spellings. The e at the end of potatoe was largely dropped by the end of the 20th century.
  8:55pm Bradley C:

great show tonight Becky!
Avatar 8:55pm Mailman Tom:

I took my first car trip to Florida when this song was a top ten hit. It played and played on the AM radio all the way down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm ultradamno:

I think you dropped a hyphen.
  8:56pm Zootopia:

Som peopl ridicul others befor they se if they ar correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm ultradamno:

Kim Shattuck has died. RIP
  8:57pm P-90:

“Well, if we can’t shoot them in the legs, can we throw potatoes at their feet and watch ‘em dance?”
  8:58pm Eric from Lake Hiawatha:

Thoroughly compelling 2 hrs thanks!
Avatar 8:58pm JakeGould:

Does anyone in the world have a moat? Just crazy rich guys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm listener 126464:

Thanks Becky
Avatar 8:58pm JakeGould:

Thanks BeckY!!!
  8:59pm P-90:

Yes, bigly compelling two hours!
Avatar 8:59pm Mailman Tom:

A moat filled with snakes and alligators!
  8:59pm Zootopia:

In some parts of the midwest and the south, Potatoe is spelled with an e at the end. Its a carry over from England
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The POTUS with the moatest. Ew.
Thanks, Becky.
  9:00pm P-90:

Or a moat filled with drums, dobros, and steel geetars
