Had to stop chopping peppers to come back and say good ask, Matt!
Avatar 8:08pm Chud:

Oh wow, a singles request show? Any Benny Joy?
  8:08pm Alphabet Soup:

Hey Becky, waaaay back in the archives you played some stuff off of Tour The U.S.A. With Rusty Draper ... think you could spin something from that tonight??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Kotzwinkled:

Yesssssss Honky Time. "Life Has Its Little Ups and Downs" by Charlie Rich?
  8:09pm Frank in Bay Ridge:

You played this song once about a year ago, lady singer singing "mother mother... Generation Gap" something...? If you know the one I mean, I'd love to hear it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Becky:

Oh man, this is going to reveal what records I don't actually own. But, Alpha Soup, you got it. And Kotz, I'm gonna play a different Charlie record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm radioronan:

Oh, no! Young Jessie? Another good one gone.
  8:10pm Giacomo Giordano:

do u have 'big iron skillet,' by Wanda Jackson?
  8:11pm Alphabet Soup:

You're best Becky!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Kotzwinkled:

Thank you!
  8:16pm Richard Tobias:

Charlie Feathers? ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Scott Williams:

Second Charlie Feathers!
  8:16pm Frenchie:

Some Junior Brown, if you can find some.
Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Blues Mandinga:

Ea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Kotzwinkled:

whoa guitar sounds like The Crystals "Then He Kissed Me"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Becky:

Gah! Charlie Feathers is in my refile box, next week I promise!
  8:20pm Frenchie:

Phil Spector lives in Nashville
  8:20pm derkman:

This show is great!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm PigeonsAndRust:

Love the show Becky! Some person in a dating app just cut me dead for listening to this program. Long live Becky! Long live WFMU! And to hell with pedestrian taste!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Scott Williams:

How about Anita Carter?
  8:22pm JakeGould:

Hello Becky and Skeleton Scott!
  8:22pm Frenchie:

Great start, Becky. Thanks
  8:23pm JakeGould:

Everyone see this great WFMU inspired illustration? www.instagram.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm ericd:

let's make that shirt happen for Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Becky:

Yeah Pigeons, screw that person! I mean, don't screw them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ultradamno:

Well, it's good to establish these issues right at the outset.
  8:26pm Bob From Kingston:

Did Gram Parsons put out any singles?
  8:26pm JakeGould:

@PigeonsAndRust: Let them go listen to “Mumford and Sons” and “The Decemberists” and all of that Pitchfork Bible-study rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Gaylord Fields:

Becky, I may not have requested this particularly Charlie Rich song, but I will caress it and love it as if it is my very own.

@ericd: Ahem, ahem, Men's Large.
Avatar 8:28pm mb:

This Sid King is really making me question if i care or not
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gaylord Fields:

*particular, no -ly!
  8:29pm P-90:

The “Silver Fox”?
  8:30pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: I will remember that type-o forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm PigeonsAndRust:

Ha, Becky! Whenever I'm down, the WFMU comment boards never fail to cheer me up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: That's because you're Type-A.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm steveo:

Good evening! I am over here on the other side of Flatbush, listening to your records after they are transmitted to Jersey City over the internet and then down to East Orange where they hitch a ride on some radio waves, back over the Hudson and East Rivers, into my radio and finally my ears.

And the cherry on top is that they are fantastic records! :) :) :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Becky:

Ha!! I should put a loudspeaker out my window, it might get to you faster.
  8:31pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: Type A+ is indeed my blood. If you need some, let me know.
  8:33pm JakeGould:

@Becky: You know what I just said? I am not implying any DJ alienate their neighbors, but will say what NYC is missing from this quarantine is people playing music out their windows. Like old school NYC. Like maybe a WFMU blasting their show out their window (if possible) to the streets.
  8:33pm JakeGould:

Ack! I meant to say: “You know what YOU just said?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm PigeonsAndRust:

I live in the sticks and blast wfmu out my windows. It seems to be tolerated at least
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm steveo:

:)
Avatar 8:36pm ottovonbqe:

Becky - my request is for next week. Can you do the show standing outside my window with a boom box over your head?
  8:36pm adamsa:

TRLHTH
Avatar 8:37pm Chud:

Amazing show, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm ultradamno:

The problem of a hole in a pirogue is perhaps slightly more urgent that one in a pierogi
  8:38pm ?:

Happy Birthday Willie!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Becky:

@ultradamno have you been to Veselka?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm ultradamno:

I have not.

Happy Birthday Willie!!!
  8:39pm dano59:

This Ray Hatcher cooks!
  8:39pm JakeGould:

Does brunch friendly Veselka have pirogues with holes? I just know that them and B&H make what they call “blintzes” but what I get on my plate is a crepe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm PigeonsAndRust:

Did this come out before or after Harper Valley P.T.A.?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm ultradamno:

JCR telling off the phonies. Though she could also cheer on athletes, evidently twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Becky:

@Pigeons I believe after but couldn't swear to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Handy Haversack:

Sounding great, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Little Danny:

Wow this Whitey Gallagher is great! New to me. Hi Becky, hi all
  8:43pm Frenchie:

Flip side of HVPTA ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Danny, it's one of my prized possessions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm ultradamno:

Discogs says after www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Little Danny:

It's got the lone[r/some] sound down pat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm sinner:

sounding good down in Alabammy.
  8:45pm Frenchie:

Think I go mix up a Negroni...

Hi Kevin!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Yes:

hi becky and all. hope everyone is doing well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Handy Haversack:

Our Welsh friend has not made an appearance?
  8:49pm JakeGould:

@Handy: Sounds like a euphemism for something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm PigeonsAndRust:

Thanks ultradamno! Sound alike follow-ups aren't quite as interesting as when some song succeeds after a bunch of soundalike predecessors...but don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking that record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Little Danny:

Sounds like straight-up honky-tonk to these ears, even if it's Nashville of "a certain era."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Handy Haversack:

I just have a suggestive nature, Jake!

BTW: I love blintzes. There's a Polish place in Gpoint with an AMAZING plum-butter blintz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm PigeonsAndRust:

"Nashville of a certain era" sounds like an exotic bourbon cocktail
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Little Danny:

Ah, maybe Becky was talmbout this David J, not the Wanda J.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Becky:

Ha, right, Danny.
  8:56pm Frenchie:

The hour goes way too fast. Thanks for a great show.
  8:56pm Giacomo Giordano:

tanks, Becky for Wanda. not familiar with dat 1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Becky:

Ha, damn LPs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Handy Haversack:

Shoot! Already over!

Thanks, Becky! Great show!

And thanks, BOARD-OPPIN' SKELETON!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm ultradamno:

I think I got that comment well before the audio...now I get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Scott Williams:

Real live success again, sounded great, Becky! TT speed glitch=classic real live
  8:59pm JakeGould:

@Handy: If you love blintzes, then the ones served at B&H and Veselka are a bespoke hate crime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

You can't go wrong with yodeling!
  8:59pm JakeGould:

Now Veselka in the 1980s before the brunch transformation… Now those were a blintz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm steveo:

Thanks, great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Little Danny:

One time on the radio a long time ago I played an entire album side of a weird Cal Tjader 12" EP at 33 instead of 45
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm radioronan:

excellent show, Becky - thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, I am sure I had them at Veselka at SOME point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm SeanWStapleton:

Great Show!! 'till next week..
  9:00pm P-90:

Thank you kindly, Ma’am!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm PigeonsAndRust:
