So does @djsheilab have an influence on what I listen to? Well according to all my friends, they ask me why are you listening to so many female artists? Seems like you play a lot of them. So I guess @djsheilab 's influence looms large.

i've scaled social media back to instagram only on desktop when i need to check messages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm ZeeBee:

I deleted my social media about two months ago and I have not regretted it once!
  3:29pm wild neil peace all:

Shelia please think about keeping LinkedIn. I used it to get a job in Albuqueque through someone I know.
  3:30pm Jocelyn:

The biggest problem I still have from deleting FB was everyone still refers to it instead of communicating directly. “Message me on fb!”, “Go see the kids holiday pics on FB”. It’s like no one wants to actual communicate.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DjLorraine:

Sheila's integrity is showing. *whistles approvingly*

Good for you, Sheila B.! We know where to find you.

Dear Sheila, I found your show without social media since I never joined that party and promise you that life can be grand and connected without. Think of all the calm and of the many hours you are going to regain as a result.

Bravo, Sheila!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm ZeeBee:

Sheila, your mailing list is so wonderful and I feel like it is an awesome solution for moving past social media and still keeping in touch and sharing awesome art and culture! Your show and other shows on WFMU make me feel really connected in a way social media never has and never will!

@ZB, was the bakery busy for the "holiday" ?
Avatar 3:33pm Domenica:

Yeah it is so tough to quit, especially with the increased isolation during Covid. I quit Twitter for good, but Instagram is especially hard. Even though Instagram too is especially pernicious, the constant pressure or wanting to seem like your life is this beautiful perfectly curated, exciting time. But yeah I don't think I could quit everything even though I know exactly how bad it is for many reasons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hullo DJ Lady SheilaB & DJ KittyAlvy !
...Has been observed how ironic that interwebz started with user groups & now we're all plugged into Zuckerland for social connection... The problem is its great @ some things & sh*tty & also dishonest about others. The Tech Monopolies need to be AntiTrusted so Competition is possible.
  3:34pm Russr44:

Courage!! Many of us talk about this and don't act. Time to read Farenheit 451 and 1984 and the movies especially the Richard Burton/John Hurt version of 1984.
Avatar 3:35pm ncjay:

I didn't know until the other day that this is a cover of a song by the Looking Glass.

@Michael, hey! Yeah we did well! Very grateful for our customers. We extended our hours through our normal monday tuesday weekend and stayed open yesterday as well, made some new ginger snap cookies and got lots of bread out the window. I am really happy to have some days off the catch up with some paper work and enjoy wfmu and draw. thanks for asking.

Avatar 3:44pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp + Neil in Somerset—I've never heard the original!
  3:45pm Jocelyn:

Me too! I’d love a world without Facebook. I liked Instagram before it became what it is now, everyone’s striving for perfection and maintaining careers to “influence”
  3:45pm Jocelyn:

I’ve lost some friends due to my reluctance to fully participate in all the social media stuff, only communicate there. I prefer email, talking, human contact.
  3:47pm Neil in Somerset:

Sheila. Check Mr Fine Wines Hipshakers vol 1 on Munster records. It's on there by Little Emmet Sutton. I think that's the original. Loads of cover versions out there too.

Thank you, Sheila B. Every week I learn of new and old bands on your show. Listening is an experience well beyond social media. Keep grooving.

I didn't count the one you swapped a few weeks ago
  3:58pm JoeG:

@mariano - I'll raise you the fact that I have yet to upgrade to a "smart" phone...the old flip still serves me well. I can call and text, but have no need for social media, snapchat, tik tok, et. al., and just simply avoid all of those trappings that seem to go hand in hand w/newer phones. I would say that the internet on my mobile device would come in handy at times, but as you said, I don't feel as though I'm missing anything of real weight.

Heya Sheila and boomers. Safe at home, wrangling leaves.
  4:05pm JoeG:

Good for you, Sheila (and others here). Walking about in public places such as restaurants w/people always looking down at their screens is something of an epidemic, and it is getting worse - particularly in public schools, unabashedly among teachers and students alike.

I'll never leave Facebook. I'd have to create an account first, and that looks like more trouble than it's worth

Hey there, Sheila. Admire your courage and reasoning to depart social media. Am conflicted about it for many of the same reasons but am not there yet. Still find it professionally useful and personally rewarding (for viewing and posting photos). But totally hear ya. Perhaps there's a way to keep the best and ditch the rest?

@Neil in Sommerset: I wonder if Mom, won't you teach me to monkey (written by Thompson-Johnson) by Little Emmett Sutton on Federal (1963) is the original of The uncle Willie. It's surely an inspirational, as I call it myself. According to www.originals.be the original is Oh mom (teach me how to uncle Willie) (written by Colbert Jr.) by The Daylighters on Tip Top (1964).

@mariano - Ha! I don't blame you; I may have to upgrade due simply to the 5G network, which I think is rendering my Star Trek device completely obsolete. Still, as far as the other stuff, it's like smoking - if you don't start, you don't have to quit later.

Sheila, the fact that some listeners don't realize you are playing music by women means that you are playing music at such a high level that people aren't processing it on the level of gender.

Hello @DjLorraine Hope you are well.
Avatar 5:25pm Jeff Moore:

I'm still mostly enjoying Instagram – because of the way people can easily discover and follow people they've never met in real life, I've found the other people who enjoy obsessively taking photos of wristwatches, and they've found me.

I can certainly see the downside of that same kind of self-sorting if the field of endeavor were, say, rabid racism and fomenting of hate instead of a being a wristwatch or fancy rat or bunny rabbit fancier.
Avatar 5:28pm djsheilab:

Listener 128429—I like that VERY much!
Avatar 5:29pm djsheilab:

Jeff Moore—Absolutely. There are some truly wonderful things about Instagram that I'm going to miss. Especially Elizabeth Gilbert's profile. It was working for me for a long time but I just don't fancy it anymore.

  5:30pm Leigh Loranger:

Dear Sheila,
I am sitting on a screened-in porch in Cape May, NJ, listening to your show while watching the rising, shining almost full moon that is rising. Clouds are slowly drifting over the moon. The air is crisp. I am sipping some Scotch Whiskey (The Dimple Pinch) that my father brought home from Edinburgh, Scotland maybe 25 years ago? Your music is the soundtrack to an eerily dream-like state I am now experiencing.....much gratitude to YOU! xoxleigh
Avatar 5:31pm djsheilab:

Otis Fodder—Make More Noise is a GEM! I did hear that the best way to start moving off social media is to delete the phone apps, so nice work!

Might be time for you to play for yourself Tyrone Davis' hit "Can I Change My Mind" which recently is being revived at my house. Playing it often. @djsheilab I still think you're making a great decision.
Avatar 5:45pm Jeff Moore:

@djsheilab: I'm actually unsurprised that listeners can go a long while before realizing that you've been nearly always playing female artists – great music is just great music, and the most obvious fingerprint on your shows is your aesthetic sense rather than the gender of the musicians.

I did note that the last time I did a show playing only female-fronted or women-only bands (not making a Big Announcement about it at the time, because that seemed lame – how many shows have happened to feature only men, there's never an announcement then) – absolutely nobody noticed. They just enjoyed the music.


There was also a sort of narrative thread running through the show. Nobody noticed that, either. That's fine, too; it helped me as I was stringing things together, and thus served its purpose. What's important is if listeners enjoy the ride. And as always, I'm enjoying the ride of your show today! Thanks for carrying us from the daylight into this disturbingly early evening dark lit from within with song.
