National Immigration Law Center: Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States.

Good evening, Rob and friends!

Hi Bas and everyone. Katie here, trying to match Rob single for single...which is impossible.
  6:32pm BetsyO:

Blast from the past,... this is the song devotees sing first thing in the morning every day when the curtains unveil Radha Krishna dirties. This recording sung by the late Yamuna Devi is played in all the temples worldwide every morning around 4:30 am. Yes, I was once one,... but here I am now,... part of the FMU cult!!! ;)
  6:33pm BetsyO:

I mention deities not dirties, but each to their own.

Hi Rob and Katie, TPSPers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm chresti:

I would say that Rob has an edge here, seeing as most TPSPers come to listen to world music sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm chresti:

I guess you might call it "home court advantage"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm radioronan:

Look forward to this delightful DJ duel every Singles Going Steady week! Thanks Rob & Katie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm chresti:

Haha BetsyO
  6:48pm BetsyO:

Rob, the lead singer on the Radha Krishna is the late Yamuna Devi Dasi. An early disciple of the movement, and the song is still played every morning in Radha Krishna Temples around the world for their morning services.

Fingers crossed for the art auction..
  6:57pm Belinda:

I feel so lucky to have tuned in today to one of my all time favorites of the year, 7" Showdown! PS karaoke next time yr in town!

Hi Belinda. Yes. Or when we are there. Katie

Does Katie have her own show yet?
  7:10pm dano59:

Nice early R.E.M. vibe to Four Brothers...
  7:11pm Peter from Dover NJ:

A quite different set tonight. Not that there's ever a bad set. Thank you, Rob!

Was thinking of this song earlier when Matt Clarke mentioned Jelli Babies. Miss Epic.

Good evening, worldwide friends.

Hi Ken, did you go to the art auction
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm ParUbi:

Ah, that makes sense, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@chresti - No, I helped some friends of a friend load a moving van today. I should've driven to Monty Hall afterwards, because it was only like 25 miles from there. What a dummy I was for coming back home instead of going to the art auction. It's been a long day as it is, though. My house is like 80 miles north M.H.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm chresti:

Ah, 80 miles, I would of done the same after moving...thought you lived near MH

@dano59 I remember when he did that series. Nikki was quite the character. Katie
  8:21pm River:

'Trannies' is absolutely not the demonym for people who listen to this show.
  8:23pm River:

I suggest 'Paradisos'.
  8:23pm Carmichael:

I would clicky star this song if I could.

@dano59 @katie I was at the 2 knitting factory shows. The Thursday show at Fat Baby(there was some move to Luna Lounge then back to Fat baby at last minute) I missed as I waiting for the G train that never came. Oddly that was Epic's Bday-which Nikki had posted about that morning. Didn't catch the Cake Shop in-store on Fri..but was at Sat night show. Miss them both. Jowe has 3!!! recent projects all worth checking out.

@radioronan yes Jowe is an active guy. I play with him every time he's in the NYC area. He's threatening to return this spring. Keep an eye out.
