Shacksbury Arlo Basque Cider.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Handy Haversack:

We transitioned from negronis to PBR. While every night is Friday and every morning is Monday these days, we had a bit too much of both -- taking it a little easy ... SO FAR.

@Jake: I grabbed a four-pack of that tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Becky:

What is this stuff? I love Basque cider!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm loveless:

I am loving every single song playing tonight!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Handy Haversack:

Been seeing it around Brooklyn more lately, Jake.
  8:15pm JakeGould:

Bought two four packs for $14 a pop. That’s $3.50 a can but worth it because I am happy to have found some place in deep Brooklyn that doesn’t just sell that Austin Cider stuff.
  8:16pm JakeGould:

@Handy: Good taste! In my part of Brooklyn (Bay Ridge) it’s mainly piles of the same beer from the same brewers with vanity “craft” labels. So happy to find that.
  8:17pm Jett:

I usually play the Bull Moose Jackson version of "Why Don't You Haul Off And Love Me" here at home. I like that one a lot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Handy Haversack:

I first got it at the local fancy beer store, which I had not patronized in its first ten years ... but then added fancy ciders to the quarantini menu. But this is from the CTown! Who knew?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Becky, cider.
  8:18pm P-90:

Tito’s Martini. Jalapeño-stuffed olive.
  8:18pm JakeGould:

Also hand grinding coffee beans from Kos Kaffe in Park Slope because they are good people and hand grinding allows me to get exercise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Mr. Pumpy:

Smith & Forge Hard Cider. Not bad, but I prefer a little drier.
  8:20pm JakeGould:

I like the basic Woodchuck Cider but it’s not easy to fine anymore. More luck finding their cans of Rose and “Pear”sco which I am not 100% sold on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Richard S:

The best beer in the world is.....

The beer someone else paid for.
  8:22pm JakeGould:

Who is tonight’s skeleton?
  8:22pm P-90:

I’ve noticed that Woodchuck Cider becoming scarce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm ultradamno:

I mostly support local craft beer Sun King Wee Mac, it's comparable to New Castle Brown Ale. I like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Handy Haversack:

The Angry Orchard Stone Dry isn't bad.

Best find from the fancy beer store is the Urban Farm Fermentory ciders. Definitely the most Portland, Maine, thing this side of Big Blood! But their regular cider is great. And they have a seaweed one -- THAT is a wild ride!
  8:23pm Finer Whiner:

JakeGould, you live in Park Slope? Didnuh know dat.
  8:24pm JakeGould:

@FinerWhiner: No I don’t. I just like that cafe.
  8:25pm Finer Whiner:

Ah, okay. I guess I meant more generally I didn't realize you were a Brooklynite. Come to think of it, I know nothing about you.
  8:25pm Finer Whiner:

And really, why should I?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Mr. Pumpy:

Nothing like mowing the lawn on a humid 90 degree August day and then shotgunning a couple of seaweed ciders in the shade.

  8:27pm Jett:

Duo Dinamico were pretty tight with Joan Manuel Serrat. I don't they ever sang in Catalan though.
  8:27pm Todd-a-o:

Watch it, twang patrol is here.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm ultradamno:

Has there always been a go-go girl breakdown part in this song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Mr. Pumpy:

Handy...that's implied! In July it's straight up thong and a top hat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Handy Haversack:

I'm sure the Catalonia govt will soon claim that the guitar was invented by a Catalan -- and that Tennessee Ernie Ford was also Catalan.
  8:33pm Paul in the OC:

16 Tons....twist????? I like it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Becky:

Watch your step, Handy!
  8:33pm Finer Whiner:

JakeGould: wasn't being sassy, just meant that even though I encounter you on message boards, including on that of my very own show, I'm not an invader of privacy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Little Danny:

OMG I have this budget version of "Lotta Lovin'." That magic one-note guitar part kills me! I kinda prefer it to the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm ultradamno:

Nothing can beat Gene Vincent for me, but this is cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Handy Haversack:

I kid! (Shakespeare was just a step too far.)
  8:34pm Finer Whiner:

Little Danny, gotta meet up with you someday face to face for a record (and booze?) party.
  8:35pm JakeGould:

@FinerWhiner: Oh! So you are actually Mr. Fine Wine and not some anonymous poster adopting a name? Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Little Danny:

Yessir MFW-r. And hopefully your records will have arrived by then as well!
  8:36pm GUMBY:

Great set! Thanks.
  8:37pm Sean Kershaw:

My new band "Uncle Ern & the Gogo Dancers" :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Becky:

Mr. FW, why aren't you "certified" on here?
  8:38pm Jett:

You're of Catalan decent I assume, Becky, and I'm of Basque decent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Little Danny:

@Becky: Do you know the version of "Lonesome Town" on Bell? If you don't, it's great! (Vocal isn't quite as sensitive as Ricky's but there's a great extra bit of twang to it.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Little Danny:

Beautiful, Merle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Becky:

I am!! And I love Euskadi!!! Have many wonderful friends there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm PigeonsAndRust:

Your show is great company tonight, as ever. Thanks Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Becky:

@Danny I don't have that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Little Danny...the personnel for that Ray Charles tune from Matt's show:
Bass - Lloyd Trotman
Congas – Candido Camero
Drums - Connie Kay
Guitar - Mickey Baker
Saxophones – Dave McRae, Freddie Mitchell, Pinky Williams, Sam Taylor
  8:41pm Jett:

Unfortunately, never been to Bilbao or any of the Basque country, maybe someday. Supposedly our decendants are from Ea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Handy Haversack:

We tried to learn some Catalan, at least enough to get by (we have a very close friend living in Barcelona), but it was a Romance language too far, it seemed that first trip. We forgot how to speak Castillan, French, everything. Took a few days to right the ship.

But we love it there. Santi (who's Basque!) speaks Catalan and takes us to some amazing places. And pickled asparagus with mayo is my new favorite salad!

Time to play "treats till I bleed" with the cats ... wish me luck.
  8:42pm Finer Whiner:

It's me, just too lazy to sign in. I love me some Catalans and Basques!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Becky:

Man, I can't wait to get back to Spain after all of this.
  8:42pm Jett:

Love the Hag, thanks for playing!
  8:43pm JakeGould:

@FinerWhiner: Cool! And for the record, I have volunteered this past marathon on Friday nights between Billy Jam, your show and Daniel Blumin’s. So hey!
  8:43pm Finer Whiner:

Oh, hey! Thanks. Didn't put two and two together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Little Danny:

@Mr. Pumpy: Thank you so much! I'd actually dug out my Ray Charles Genius collection liner notes and confirmed 'em myself, but I appreciate your diligence. Solid session of NYC studio cats.
  8:45pm JakeGould:

As Alf would say, “No problem!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Becky:

Nobody can say I don't play weird-ass music on this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Little Danny, no problem. I like a musical investigation mission!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Richard S:

Punching cheese!?!?!
  8:45pm JakeGould:

“Mah daddy makes Swiss cheese…” Oh what a sad life for her… Just making cheese… Gotta live lady!
  8:46pm Finer Whiner:

Four saxophones?! Talk about overkill. YOU DO PLAY WEIRD-ASS MUSIC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm ultradamno:

For a second I thought she was the Louise from Sweden, I'm glad she cleared that up.
  8:46pm JakeGould:

@RichardS: That scene in Rocky where he punches huge blocks of cheese is a classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Handy Haversack:

Four minutes of agony. These cats are wild beasts.
  8:47pm Jett:

@Becky, Weird to some, just really great music to me.
  8:48pm JakeGould:

You know what’s sad in NYC during this lockdown? You don’t hear real competent players just blasting music through a sax or trombone or something. Like some Chuck Mangione wanna-be wailing…
  8:50pm Jett:

Buckaroo!
  8:52pm Finer Whiner:

WHAT
  8:52pm Jett:

Country Charlie Pride, and Charlie Pride on the other hand are the same guy. I only dance to Ernest Tubb! ❤️

You've NEVER seen even one episode of Gilligan's Island??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Becky:

No. We talked about this, because I've never heard the theme song!
  8:56pm JakeGould:

I wish I never saw one episode of “Gilligan’s Island.” Mazel tov, Becky!

Thanks for the great show Becky! Now off to take in the bird feeders before the raccoons show up. Country living. Be well all.

  8:58pm P-90:

Many thanks, Miz Becky!
  8:59pm JakeGould:

If they rebooted “Gilligan’s Island” in 2020 only 1/2 the passengers survive due to Coronavirus. Skipper is just dead in the first episode.
