The super what?
  5:11pm Listener Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

(r.i.p) mister bowie you certainly impacted my life :(:::::::::::::::
  5:12pm steveL:

Therese and Bill Kelly just gave me a perfect ten minutes of radio at the perfect time. It would take a while to explain, so I won’t. Know that you are doing good, and thank you.
  5:13pm Listener Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

the song "ashes to ashes" is like a song about my life and what i go through each day.
  5:15pm Listener Phillip In Bronx Little Italy:

literally cried my eyes out when i heard he died.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Stanley:

Hi Therese and everyone.
Chresti - I'm grabbing a an hour or so before the game, broadcast live on the BBC.
The one night of the year I stay up very late. It'll be 3.30am over here by the time it's over.
Strange behaviour for an English person and I only have one friend who'll be doing the same. He's 400 miles away but we have the Whatsapp open.
  5:21pm steveL:

Stanley: Welcome to our most widely shared holiday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Stanley:

Thanks, steveL. We're lucky to have highlights once a week over here and the London games broadcast in full. I'm not a big sports fan but American Football thrills me. Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the culture that surrounds it.
  5:27pm steveL:

A co-worker handed off this Blur album in a pile of other CDs in the mid nineties. It’s a fucking masterpiece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Stanley:

I'm hearing an atmospheric soundscape track. Am I listening to the same thing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Stanley:

Nope. Now tuned in properly.
  5:30pm steveL:

Stanley: Maybe not. Blur, now Gang of Four
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm chresti:

Stanley-I'm avoiding it, I hear the big orange blister will be there, you know.

I’ve done that more than once!

Saw Gang of Four recently (in Sydney), a bit disappointed at the time only one original member, IE Gang of One. Good gig, but now not even One?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Mr. Pumpy:

You all just reminded me the super bowl was today! I knew...but forgot. I'm not dumping on it...just not on my radar lately. And yes...living under a rock a bit! Anyhow...great set so far. RIP...Andy Gill.
  5:33pm steveL:

So intense and fierce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Stanley:

Chresti -I know it's not a big thing with FMUers, unlike baseball, which I know nothing about. In my my lifelong maverick manner, I once again find myself in the minority!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm steveo:

1979? Oh, that explains a lot, haha.
  5:38pm sugarwolf:

Remember when Staten Island Chuck bit Mayor Bloomberg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm steveo:

Yeah, I'm also in my office pool and I have no idea what my numbers are and have no intention of watching the game. Hopefully someone will have me a wad of cash tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm chresti:

Stanley-I'd pay less attention except..'NINERS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Stanley:

Chresti - sure. It can't be helped. I hope not too many are reading me confessing to be watching the SB. What litle cred I have around these parts is all dashed.
  5:44pm Mike Sin:

I admit I’ll be watching the Super Bowl with the “mute” button on and Therese’s show blasting through the house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm listener 126464:

yes, game on, volume zero
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Stanley...don't let us bully you! Ain't nothing wrong with getting your Super Bowl on. Do yo thang! I happen to be ignorant of all things sports...and lately I've had a lot going n to make me even more so. Anyhow...Enjoy the bowl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Stanley:

Thanks Mr P and for the other voices of support.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Aitch:

About to see Stereolab, excited. Nice small venue. Noice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Aitch:

Hard to pick a favourite with Stereolab. Probably the one you heard first, because they're all pretty good. My first Emperor Tomato Ketchup, a cracker.
  6:01pm Carmichael:

Joe Buck is enough reason for zero volume. Heya Therese and thanks for the Stereolab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Stanley:

Love Stereolab. Cybele's Reverie comes to mind for me.
  6:05pm Carmichael:

Their 2019 Primavera set is on Youtube. Amazing.
Avatar 6:08pm Luisa24:

I like this song!

Therese- careful now- I understand the utility of destroying one's spiritual face- but I'm just starting to accept my physical face- so it's kind of- you should have announced a trigger warning- SMOOCH!

Where is the main riff in this Atomic Forest track from...or who covered it? I know that riff in a different context.

I hear some of those puppies sustain some brutal head injuries during that event
Avatar 6:24pm Luisa24:

i like this song too. it's kinda lana del rey meets david lynch

I think it may be from Billy Cobham's Spectrum...anyone? Therese?

this has an air 'moon safari' vibe.
  6:25pm Listener Robert:

Over dinner here with my friend, I was trying to remember what TV show theme that was a few tracks back -- shocked to not be able to find it by that name on the playlist. So either it was known by another name, or they covered it by a rearrangement without credit.

It was a comedy, maybe The Mothers-In-Law.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Stanley:

dale - just what I was thinking
Avatar 6:26pm dale:

hello therese and theresians.
  6:26pm Listener Robert:

Or maybe just a really long, repeated quote.

...ya ever just - just :
...'ohmuhgeeerd - I lurve FMU!'...
  6:30pm Listener Robert:

Therese, if you know what TV show that was quoting (or ripping off) the theme of, could you please say it when you back announce? It must've been either Spectrum or Poor Moon. Otherwise I'm going to have to listen to the archive and wrack my brain forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Tommy in Neversink:

I'd like to tell you how much I loved YOU DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING by Overlake but I can't put it into words
  6:35pm Beep Boop:

Now THIS is uplifting! Anyone else watching that HBO show with the old racists that just make stuff up as they go? No? Nobody's watching that show? Oh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Mr. Pumpy:

I found it! Well...not sure about TV shows, but the Atomic Forest track has a lick or two in it from Billy Cobham's Spectrum album from track Stratus. I think the intro was also from a Mahavishnu song. Trying to track down which one now. Here's the Cobham track:www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Iron Giant !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Mr. Pumpy:

@ Therese...thanks! Imma check out Atomic Forest now...try and get some vinyl. Do you have any knowledge that can help me with this Cobham/Mahavishnu link? I't probably they were just fans and were paying homage. Thanks...
  6:43pm Listener Robert:

I found what I was looking for too...it was indeed the main theme from Mothers-in-Law, and someone has put on YouTube hilarious descriptive-of-the-show lyrics to it -- www.youtube.com...

Now I still have to listen to the archive to determine which track in that last set it was.
  6:45pm Beep Boop:

Just tapped into the new Neko Case superficially- but she calls god an insatiable tire fire
Avatar 6:46pm Roberto:

Or if you're vegan like me, get your 'za from Screamer's in Bklyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Robert...not sure which track that was. I was in and out of the room for a while. You're half way there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm chresti:

I was gonna say..vegan pizza, Roberto beat me to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm chresti:

I think there are gluten free options also.
  6:52pm Listener Robert:

Using SoundCloud, I've ruled out Poor Moon. So must've been Spectrum from Disco Roar.
  6:55pm Beep Boop:

Good new song!
  6:56pm Listener Robert:

YES!! soundcloud.com... starting at 55 seconds, compare to www.youtube.com...

I guess that counts as parody. If not, it's just a rip-off.
  6:59pm Listener Robert:

You have to start at 0:15 of The Mothers In Law to hear the quoted passage.
  6:59pm Listener Schned:

At the risk of cliche: hear ya, Therese, recently ran into someone I was at Hunter College with, like a solid 40 years ago- the connection was also brief-ish but affirmative, we now touch base here and there, supportively, and it's a great help in the era of the "dumpster fire" (!) Nice phrase-coinage, great broadcast as always!
Avatar 7:01pm Therese:

@Listener Schned: "Dumpster Fire" is not original to me, but thanks for your nice words!
  7:08pm Glenn Danzig:

Great show Therese
Avatar 7:10pm Therese:

Thanks, @Glenn Danzig! I went to high school with your cousin, FYI.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm melinda:

Sounds like Arlo Guthrie
  7:12pm Glenn Danzig:

Was his head as large as mine?
  7:13pm Listener Robert:

Wilbur Hatch composed and conducted the M-I-L music, including I suppose the theme.
Avatar 7:21pm Roberto:

Schlomo Danzig? I love that guy!
  7:24pm Jett:

I'll go with the Ann-Margret & Lee Hazlewood version! Much better, but I do like this one also.
  7:29pm Listener Robert:

I just noticed "Spectrum" also started with a similar bongos roll to the Mothers In Law theme. So I guess that means it was a tribute or homage, because you wouldn't put in that much musical allusion unless you wanted someone to catch it.
  7:33pm Bill W:
