We be here

Hey, Sheila and all the most Sophisticated of Boom Boomers! So glad to see a Friday with you all!

Gonna be a little patchy in attendance today. A friend wants to try some remote poker, and I'm not exactly in a position to turn down social engagements! But I'll be listening when I can and saying hi as I'm able.

Same for Kate, who has two meetings during SBB(!) but sends her love, Sheila.

@djsheilab In all honesty, anything less than the death penalty for that so-called cop is not enough. His cronies deserve a severe punishment as well. God Bless George Floyd, R.I.P.

Also Twitter is tagging and hiding Drumpf’s hateful tweets. The ones where he sounds like Ike Turner apologizing from the bottom of his heart and won’t do it again here is a bouquet of flowers still stay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@battleaxe: Each state has different levels they charge for murder. Third-degree is typically a technical term, and probably has nothing to do with how many years he can be sentenced.

Max sentence: 25 years imprisonment in Minnesota.

(Naturally, it won't be enough to stop the riots. They have a life of their own after a point)
  3:16pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: I read sentencing for 3rd degree manslaughter in Minnesota is 25 years max.

@Gaylord: Thanxz! Why am I not surprised you would come with the knowledge and a link!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Colleen:

Fantastic!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Gaylord Fields:

I see that, but "depraved indifference" sounds about right to me; if he were charged with premeditation, he would likely be acquitted easily. This charge has a better chance of getting him convicted.

Glad to hear that fucker has been charged. I wound up seeing the video by accident while trying not to. And it filled me with rage not just because of the awfulness of it all on its own but because it's nothing new and has been happening all the time, not just lately when everyone has a little movie camera in their pocket but for years and years.

  3:37pm Jett:

@djsheilab I've never liked discussing politics on my radio show, but in particular this incident has me very upset. I have some additional info on how this went down, and all I can tell you is it could've been you or me. Mr. Floyd offered not even the slightest resistance. No need to put him on the floor. The idiotic cop just should've put him in the police car.

there is no end to all the social ills. can't we have a safe space from the f'd up world we live in. i wouldnt listen to a current events show. frankly we are saturated in the 24hr news cycle, really just want to listen to great music. feel similarly about the modern world.

I just ponied up an extra $20 to this show, I suggest anyone else who might be so inclined to do so, though I'm guessing I just covered that person's yearly "donation".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm tom from Glasgow:

a thing about this radio station is, anyone who claims to like everything on it is probably lying (or insane). there is doubtless a lot of music you skip because it's not to your taste. you can do the same for someone talking for five minutes about something that's important to them.
Avatar 3:47pm Adriana DC:

I was about to say, this isn't about politics, its basic humanity. @thatsgreat the fact that you require a safe space says much about how clueless you are to the world. I've already donated to WFMU this year, but i'm giving another 50 clams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@thatsgreat: I'm sure you own music. You can always play a record if you like. Unlike the ostrich's sand hole you wish Sheila was providing you for some reason, the real world owes you no guarantees. Ask George Floyd.

@MattFiveash: Bet they have never pledged their dining room table let alone to WFMU.
  3:50pm ?:

I am with you - that death was horrible. However, you have crossed over into reverse racism. Two questions: Can you please tell your listeners how many of those who burned down the police station were shot? Can you tell them how many of the people who attacked 2 police cars in Los Angeles were shot? You DID ask what would happen if the race situation was different.

Glad going though these last few weeks You Sheila and this station and other DJ's streams etc. are here , and at the same time can't count on my fingers how many staying @ home now I've suggested this Station,, and unlike in the past now most that I've told it about are Hooked ! for that only I am getting Great Feelings !<>!

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Matt Fiveash:

thatsgreat: there's like ten gazillion hours of archived shows on WFMU if you want to hear DJs play music and not talk about anything that's gonna remind you about reality. But don't ever presume to tell a WFMU DJ how to do their thing. Also, if you pledge to any other show on this station you're also pledging to Sophisticated Boom Boom, because we're all in it together and shows aren't measured by how much money they raise.

The list goes on and on… White people can riot to celebrate but if non-whites riot due to sadness and despair, that’s a “problem.”

Whatever your thoughts are the core issue here is someone died because he was suspected of passing a bad check at an effing Target. How much was that check for? Any how many $$$ were spent between 4 officers to apprehend him let alone kill him?

In contrast Dylann Roof kills 9 people at a church and the cops took him out for Burger King after that.

I appreciate your commentary and breaks, Sheila. I sometimes do my greetings and I’m in a good mood because the show is on and it’s Friday and I feel kind of weird when there’s so much horror and weirdness in the world. I’m undeniably privileged. You do a great job of bringing up injustice while maintaining a kick-ass and joyful show. It’s not an easy thing to do but acknowledging both is important.

If you live in NYC and venture outside, remover: Nobody cares about open container laws anymore. So just pour a bottle of wine into your favorite S’well bottle or other container and enjoy the day!

If you like that one and haven't yet, give Las Grecas a try. And dance!

Remember! Not remover.

Anyone here remember old school Brooklyn diners? Like “El Greco” in Sheepshead Bay or “The Floridian” near Kings Plaza?

Diner Washington
  5:37pm JakeGould:

@AmiAd: Keep on keeping on on the fire escape with the beer and joints.
  5:37pm Dave:

There can never be too much Dinah Washington!
  5:37pm ami ad:

@JakeGould:John's Diner in Clinton Hill,fastest service ever,and cheap.Diet food though.

Please, no. Not the whistling marathon. An humble request.

@AmiAd: Heard of them. Miss the “Academy” diner in Fort Greene. Right near Brooklyn Tech.

Whistling is a skill better heard alone.

thanks again, DJ Sheila
  5:41pm JakeGould:

I believe DJ Mac of the “Antique Phonograph Radio Show” has a thing for classic whistling records. Maybe Dan Bodah did something with whistling?

St Dymphna is the saint of lunacy.. Also a decent irish bar formerly on St Marks now on Ave A.

Gotta run now. Thanks for another inspirational show @djsheilab.
  5:49pm JakeGould:

@AmiAd: B&H Dairy on Second Avenue near St. Marks is a decent Jewish food diner. But it is a wee bit brunchy for me. I order blintzes from them once and what they gave me was essentially a savory crepe; not bad but it felt weird that they would call that a blintz.
