VRDD... serious stuff
Avatar 3:02pm Mr Fab:

Hi GG. man, i WISH supermarkets played this stuff nowadays. i mean: Ace of Base?! WHY?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No individual tracks this week, but one wonderful muzak album, made specifically for supermarkets :-)
Avatar 3:02pm worldsworstrecords:

i used to be the fruit and veg buyer for an organic supermarket in Bath. I know how serious VRDD can be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And given the MallSoft treatment by Yours Truly ;-)
Avatar 3:03pm Domenic:

LOL! OK this is going to be good. Were mesmerized,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab! I completely agree :-) I would happily shop for hours if supermarkets still sounded like this :-)

Hi Dom! :-)

Hi! the Goya aisle is well stocked... Or the stock is not moving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - I can only begin to imagine what kinds of fruit and veg you encountered! :-)

Hi Sem!
Avatar 3:05pm solo mon:

I can relate to this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Rich in Washington:

I coincidentally need to go grocery shopping today. Wish I was there now listening on my earbuds. That would be surreal in its immersiveness.
Avatar 3:06pm Mr Fab:

Domenic! Do you know about our new exotica show, Aloha Fridays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - That would freaky and fabulous in equal measures ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Rich in Washington:

I love the ambient space you've created in this mix! It's transporting me to my childhood, I feel like I'm clinging to the side of a grocery cart while my mom pushes it along.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Solo - I often feel that you and I occupy the same odd universe. Lol.
Avatar 3:06pm worldsworstrecords:

haha! We sold a LOT of Kohl Rabi
Avatar 3:06pm Mr Fab:

i was grocery shopping once and the played the Clash's "Lost in the Supermarket." Kinda freaked me out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Rich in Washington:

HA!
Avatar 3:07pm solo mon:

My friend that worked at a produce market had a photo book of lewd vegetables
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I *love* doing this kind of treatment on tracks. It's so much fun :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I suspect that Sheena's kitchen has a variety of lewd vegetables ;-)
Avatar 3:07pm solo mon:

GG indeed I agree

Greetings, GG and the gaggle what has gathered!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Rich in Washington:

We're gonna have a bumper crop of zucchini this year. That's not a pun on anything, just a real fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There are so many insanely wonderful mixes on YouTube - MallSoft, RetroWave, VaporWave ... It's a fabulous rabbit hole that I often fall into ;-)

Hi Granny! <3

This is making me hungry (again).

Hey GST!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - The Carry On fan in me just guffawed at that ;-)
Avatar 3:09pm solo mon:

I tend to buy things at the store like endive and escarole and other non mainstream greens. The checkers are always sooooo suspicious of the veg, look at me like “did you just bring this in here from outside?”
  3:10pm matty dread:

loving the sounds of the supermarket

@Solo - "Are you ........ *a smuggler*?"

Grainy Spacey Tune in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you ,Matty! :-) xx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Rich in Washington:

I love the music on the live streaming Seeburg 1000 jukebox. It really sounds like the music I'd hear as a very young child in department stores - even though it's a decade or so before my birth. I would imagine some smaller retailers would've been playing the same collections for many, many years out of thrift.
  3:11pm matty dread:

if only my Asda played this music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I. Am. Obsessed. With. That. Channel! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Phillippe Bastille:

@solo mon my favorite cashier conversation is always when they hold up a veggie I've put on the belt and say "What is this?" in that casual "I don't get paid enough to know our products" kind of way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I sometimes dream about opening a supermarket that only plays this kind of music, and is decorated as in the photo for today's show :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Rich in Washington:

I was once listening when it had a breakdown. Such a weird, rare treat. It really IS a real Seeburg machine playing in real time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Power Papi:

Honestly, I had to google 'Kohlrabi'
Avatar 3:12pm solo mon:

I know I always say shit like this but there’s a couple of great Kmart music mixtapes o YouTube. Not as great as this because no Georgy but u get the shopping nostalgia for blue light specials
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The photo by the way is in the PNW somewhere, but I forget where exactly. Rich? Solo? Any ideas?
  3:12pm matty dread:

can i please come work in your shop
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Power Papi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Phillippe Bastille:

I would imagine watching Guy's Grocery Games would be different with this playing in the background
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Rich in Washington:

I love weird old supermarkets which haven't really modernized. A few in Portland, some in coastal towns.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Solo - I used one of those in the Stepford Wives edition of HWM ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Matty - Step right up! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Rich in Washington:

I'd sure like to know, GG! That pic almost looks like they were going for a PNW Native American motif.
Avatar 3:14pm solo mon:

Oh u did GG of course you did you little genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Very much so!!! All the things I used to see on Vancouver Island back in the day and around British Columbia in general :-) I love PNW First nations art :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

well, i turned my back for one moment and lost track of the chat already!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - It's zipping again today! Thank you for your message btw, I'll be writing you tomorrow, lovely :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Rich in Washington:

Fred Meyer was a Portland OR based chain that was the ONLY department store/Supermarket in my town growing up. It was eventually subsumed by national chain Kroger but is still around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't believe I've ever eaten Kohl Rabi although I know of it ... Is it an artichoke type thing?
Avatar 3:17pm solo mon:

Grainy/Spacey Tuner hows it goin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon! just got back from the dentist and my head is numb from my chin to my ear!
Avatar 3:19pm solo mon:

Rich I loved the old Fred Meyers the one in Oregon City is where I bought my first records ( while my mom bought groceries ) I remember what they were- hayzee fantayzee, bow wow wow I want candy and Neil young “trans” lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Tac Mall Thriftway, Takoma Washington. Found it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh no, Granny! Poor you!!! <3
Avatar 3:21pm solo mon:

Yeah I remember that was the thriftway motif back in the day! There was one right by where I grew up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - I would *love* to see one of those :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Rich in Washington:

solo: The one in Hazel Dell was the only big box retail in my town until the early 80s. I do believe I bought my first ever new records there, no doubt from their cutout bins. I also remember occasionally having lunch in their buffet which my dad dubbed "Heave's Buffet" (It was called Eve's after founder Fred Meyer's wife).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Boom :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon—you got Haysi Fantaysee at Fred Meyer. Perfect!
GG: i was brave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I don't doubt it! You're a pirate after all :-)
Avatar 3:23pm solo mon:

There were a lot of thriftways in Washington and Oregon, they are all gone. Granny, Fred Meyer had a dialed in music store straight out of the pages of star hits magazine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Rich in Washington:

Thriftway was a great chain, too. My brother worked there as a checker/bagger when we were in high school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thriftway looks absolutely glorious :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: Tacoma Mall! That's where i went shawpping in my high school days! Bought my first TRex cassette from a dollar bin at some soulless record shop.
Avatar 3:24pm solo mon:

Oh I’ve eaten at eves buffet. So gross. Like a terrible thanksgiving meal at a retirement home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One little photo is bringing back so many wonderful memories! that makes me very happy indeed :-)
Avatar 3:25pm Mr Fab:

i work at a supermarket, and i AM one of those people that say 'What is this..?" Esp produce, which I rarely buy myself. It's true, we don't know our products: I take em off a truck and stick 'em on the shelf. Or if I'm up front, I stick 'em in a bag.That's it. And DOn't ask if we have any in the back!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm notsoKWYET:

This is NOT my day... sorry was on the phone with the ministry of labour. Back now!
Avatar 3:25pm solo mon:

GG you are triggering all us PNW kids lol
Avatar 3:25pm Domenic:

Woman baggers are better than me baggers. Some of these lads have no idea to to properly build a 3 dimensional matrix
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm notsoKWYET:

i won't be able to chat but I am listening intently while I do some work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - But DO you have any in the back? And what IS this? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - Come and relax! It sounds like you;re having a hellish time <3
Avatar 3:26pm Domenic:

Dragon fruit has no taste, and its expensive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Rich in Washington:

my whole family's career story is working for a business that continually gets bought out by a series of larger businesses. My mom worked at a garden center of a hardware store which got bought out by a company my father worked for, making them coworkers, then the same company bought the grocery store my brother worked for.
I was a sucker who washed dishes at a couple of restaurants in town so escaped the weird dynamic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Phillippe Bastille:

@GST I used to work with a woman years ago who was rather proud of her appearance but fortunately had a great ability to laugh at herself. She came into work late one day and sat at her desk, giggling to herself. I asked her what was up and she told me she had gone to the dentist (in a mall -- who goes to a mall dentist?) and had redone her lipstick without looking in the mirror after the dentist was done. She said she was walking though the mall and all sorts of boys and men were giving her big smiles. She didn't realize what was up until she got in the work bathroom and saw she basically had bright red clown make-up around her mouth from applying lipstick on a numb face.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Same here to be honest :-) I have a specific Vancouver Safeway in my head listening to this. Low Googie type building with those amazing 70s font faces and daises everywhere :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm notsoKWYET:

unfortunately I need to get some numbers to my new friend Rose so daddy can get paid out big from his shitty company
Avatar 3:27pm solo mon:

Last year I tried to buy “ground cherries” and they almost refused to believe they existed at the register.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Phillippe - THAT is fabulous!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Phillippe Bastille: funny, i just did that, too!
Avatar 3:28pm Mr Fab:

as opposed to, what, "air cherries"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Solo - I've been trying to find powdered mushrooms to no avail. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

ok, not really, but if i did try to put lipstick on it would be weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I tried to put on mascara on a moving Tube train once. It didn't go well ...!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

just eating mashed potatoes is tricky enough
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Phillippe Bastille:

@GST you didn't strike me as a mall dentist kind of person
Avatar 3:29pm solo mon:

Haha she was Diane Ladd in wild at heart.
  3:29pm matty dread:

Good Luck Dan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: i think that the decor in the Thriftway photo is inspired by North Coast Indigenous art traditions. Very popular style in the PNW
Avatar 3:31pm solo mon:

Haha they r called ground cherries?! It said it on the sign in the produce dept. they were like tomatillos? But sweeter? I don’t know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Phillippe Bastille:

Pre-dated that movie by about 5 years. Maybe the inspiration?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - That was always my favourite thing growing up :-) I have a major obsession with First Nations art - I even took a course in it many years ago :-)
Whenever we'd go up in the mountains I always wanted to stop at tourist shops and pick up tiny sculptures and pictures.
Avatar 3:32pm solo mon:

Phillippe maybe David Lynch went to a mall dentist too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Phillippe Bastille: i have the best dentist. he looks like Shel Silverstein and listens to local community radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - PNW First Nations art is *really* difficult to do. If I didn't already love it I certainly gained an even greater respect for it after that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Phillippe Bastille:

@solo mon If I ever meet him, I will have to ask him if he knew a woman named Willie. I'm sure he'd remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a ton of wonderful PNW First nations art and sculpture in museums in and around Stanley Park in Vancouver. Really gorgeous. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Phillippe Bastille:

@GST my kind of dentist, except for the fact I'm terrified of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

DJ GeorgyGirl: we need to talk. I have the honor of knowing some of the finest North Coast traditional carvers alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm okay with dentists but I am deeply, deeply phobic about general anaesthetic. I once had my wisdom teeth removed under local anaesthetic and it was worth it just to hear the dentist swearing like a sailor and screaming ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - Yes PLEASE!!! :-D xx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Granny beautiful!!
  3:47pm captain mike:

Did Brian Eno ever release “Music for Supermarkets”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

My favorite Calvin Hunt story is about the time some white tourists visited his studio and saw him using a chainsaw, "Oh, is that the way your ancestors did it?" they asked, thinking they were hilarious. Without missing a beat, Calvin says, "And i suppose you traveled here in a covered wagon?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi captain mike! Good question! I don't think so ... But I could be wrong ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - Lol!!! I think they needed some arnica for that burn ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@captain mike - There *is* a Jean-Michel Jarre "Music Pour Supermarkets from the early 80s.

@DJ GG its an anesthetic fail that gave me my fear of dentists. Somehow I wound up with novacaine dripping from my ear and a completely un-numbed tooth.
