Greetings from Matt and his goofy sweater-bedecked Schnauzer Sophia! I'm quivering in anticipation. The Soul-stice celebration makes me shiver... with delight.

I love hearing Gaylord and Becky! Happy Solstice to you both. BTW, didn't a british band from the `80s cover "Ain't Nothing But A House Party"?
  8:24pm johnzo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gaylord Fields:

@RobinSays: I think '80s British bands covered every '60s soul record.

I can't tell if its the rather strong coffee that I brewed earlier that has me dancing in place, or this super solid selection so far. It's not a very pretty sight, but no one else has to see... not even my snoozing pup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Gaylord Fields:

Mr C! A true soul man!
  8:32pm Tim from LH:

Cheers to the longest night! This Soul-stice is sounding great!

Gaylord gets over before he goes under every Soul=stice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm mariano:

This music is so good for the soul. They should give it a name along those lines.

  8:51pm Daybreak and the Holiday Adventures!:

I love that Gaylord has been on so many other DJs X-Mas Specials, and yet his show is a Sooooooul-Stice!
Well played sir!

Oh, and did you ever get the truth on Junpier and Pikachu?

Or do the lies and conspiracy live on???

Happy Soul-stice to everyone! Sorry I can't give individual thanks to all. Blame short soul songs.

@sugarwolf: Precisely!

Roses Grier singing about pizza. Just when you think you’ve heard it all (but that’s why we listen to WFMU)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I wonder if D-Town, the record label, is anywhere near a C-Town, the grocery store. These are the things I think about. Don't make fun of me.
  9:03pm JakeGould:

C-Town in NYC is actually a nice chain nowadays. Not like the old days of “Who died here?” C-town.
  9:03pm Carmichael:

Heya Gaylord and Becky.
  9:04pm JakeGould:

Ray Milland and Roosevelt Grier. Magic! en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I have had C-Town as my neighborhood grocery store twice -- once in Inwood and once in Jersey City -- and yeah, they were kinda shitty. I liked that they were sometimes inexpensive and carried Ting, but the old-meat aroma was a bit much.
  9:04pm choggie:

who can forget my all-time favorite Rosey Grier, it's alright to cry
  9:07pm JakeGould:

That small “People with two heads; one black and one white…” in the 1970s really freaked me out as a kid.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm WR:

Eating dessert and tuning in to the Soulstice Grooves. Yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm mariano:

You know when you're doing stuff around the house then you realize you've been involuntarily dancing a bit to the music? That was the Marvin Smith song for me just now.
  9:12pm Jett:

Becky, give Gaylord a lesson in soul, please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm northguineahills:

Thanks Gaylord and Becky!

@Wendy: My C-town in Bushwickburg, was crappy when I first moved there, but in 2012 they renovated, expanded the space, and even included a beer cave. It was rather nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@Jett: that reads kinda dickish. Wanna try again?
Avatar 9:14pm Mod Mokka Matti:

I'm honestly on the verge of wildly yelling out to each of these tracks (ala Oprah) "YOU get a star!...YOU get a star!...and YOU get a star!..." Wow, would I wind up being even more quiet than usual afterwards, with a very sore throat. Oh...that's right - I can just give the whole broadcast a star. Easy enough.
  9:14pm JakeGould:

Correction, the other two-headed film was a big lunkhead like Lenny in “Of Mice and Men” who gets Bruce Dern’s head on his shoulders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@ngh: Yeah, I keep hearing that C-Town is nice now. That's cool! People deserve a good grocery store. Now I live very far from C-Towns. My current favorite grocery store is Market Basket. No beer cave there, but I don't care about that anyhow. :-D
  Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Jinx:

what a great record!
  9:18pm JakeGould:

Met Food is gone. That was the grocery store I grew up with in deep Brooklyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@Jinx: I've thought that -- "What a great record!" -- about every single song Gaylord and Becky have played tonight. These soul-stices are all killer no filler.

Sore feet is what I wind up with after one of the typical multi-mile walkabouts that I'm delaying tonight...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Webhamster Henry:

I love guest hosts! Nice party tonight!
  9:25pm Carmichael:

Don’t know about you, but out here we shake our butts and point at them. That means we like the song.
  Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Jinx:

Wendy, i like 'em all too, but just listening to that Smokey record and thinking of how records were made then, the large-ness of it, just killed me.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Get ready for more Becky this week; an extra hour Wednesday and again on Friday evening.
  9:30pm JakeGould:

How many 12 year olds are singing backing on “Daddy Rolling Stone?” I say… 3.
  9:32pm medson:

Good evening Gaylord and Becky. Just wanted to pop in a say hi. Loving the Soulstice

Speaking about horrible air travel experiences: This guy was able to fly the first 1/2 of a round trip with his pet possum. But the second 1/2? The possum was no longer awesome to JetBlue: “California man, pet opossum booted from JetBlue flight, were stranded for days in Texas” www.usatoday.com...
