You’re off to a good start today. My wife just asked me to turn it up so she can hear out in the kitchen.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm medson:

I’ve never heard this song before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm medson:

Surprising since she was so popular
Avatar 5:36pm Kitschy Mama:

Annette had TONS of songs, totally kitsch!
Avatar 5:39pm Wild Honey:

This show is a wonderful respite from the craziness. thanks for the fun tunes KM!
Avatar 5:39pm Kitschy Mama:

Hey Wild Honey :) Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar 5:43pm Kitschy Mama:

Avatar 5:44pm Kitschy Mama:

one know who the wonder who were?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm medson:

I like seeing the label images on the playlist. All part of the fun of these records.
Avatar 5:45pm Kitschy Mama:

Medson - totally! a huge part of the listening experience. I wish that the WFMU apps would show the images while they play.
  5:45pm Smoketown Joe:

Very nice to have you back at WFMU. Thursday afternoon is fun again
Avatar 5:46pm Kitschy Mama:

aww thanks Smoketown Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm medson:

I know so do I. I love those old logos and fonts. We live near Wildwood here in NJ. Tons of old 50’s motels and neon.
Avatar 5:49pm Kitschy Mama:

cool! nobody cherishes that shit where i live. some real old racist native american hotel neon signs though. classic but terrible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm medson:

Yikes haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm medson:

At one point they wanted to demolish a lot of it. But they were saved. You’ll like them. Just search Wildwood NJ Doo Wop Motels.
Avatar 5:53pm Kitschy Mama:

cool but outdated...www.travelwisconsin.com...
Avatar 5:55pm Kitschy Mama:

medson - oh those are really cool!
Avatar 5:56pm Kitschy Mama:

I've always loved the steeplechase funny face tillie too..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm medson:

I live 15 mins from there.
Avatar 5:56pm Kitschy Mama:

so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm medson:

Very crowded in the summer.
Avatar 5:57pm Kitschy Mama:

oh i bet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm medson:

Oh yeah. Tillie is from Coney Island and Asbury Park
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm medson:

Tillie was just the subject of the Weird NJ segment on Wake n Bake.
Avatar 6:07pm Kitschy Mama:

so cool. such an odd face. I've always been drawn to those types off characters like natty boh or even bob dobbs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm medson:

Same here. I got a Felix the Cat watch when I was 10. I wore it for years even after it stopped working. Lost it with other things during Sandy.
Avatar 6:12pm Kitschy Mama:

oh no! so sad. I don't think I've really grasped how terrible Sandy was... sorry to hear that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm medson:

It was brutal. Normally you see high winds etc. But Sandy was just a huge surge of water. Had no power for 18 days.
Avatar 6:17pm Kitschy Mama:

yikes. when i was 16 a tornado swept away my parents trailer and we lost everything. understandable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm medson:

Sorry to that
Avatar 6:24pm Kitschy Mama:

thanks medson.
Avatar 6:24pm Kitschy Mama:

this song is fitting for the times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm medson:

For sure. I see those clowns are being outed
Avatar 6:28pm Kitschy Mama:

yuck. i watched that madness for hours live yesterday. insane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm medson:

Makes me sick is all I can say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm medson:

That’s why I leave WFMU on all day everyday
Avatar 6:35pm Kitschy Mama:

oh yes! the reality of yesterday makes me more appreciative of things like WFMU. Things that are a miracle they exist in this day and age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm medson:

I started listening to FMU 1985.
Avatar 6:37pm Kitschy Mama:

whoa...year i was born!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm medson:

Haha. Nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm medson:

How did you get to FMU?
Avatar 6:44pm Kitschy Mama:

started Retro Obscuro Podcast on GaragePunk Pirate Radio in 2013 and it fell through in 2017, then i emailed Debbie and she let me on Ichiban. In 2019.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm medson:

Avatar 6:46pm Kitschy Mama:

my show was always heavily influenced by my favorite station "rock n soul ,what have you..."
Avatar 6:46pm Kitschy Mama:

it's still surreal I'm here now. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm medson:

I miss going to the station.
Avatar 6:47pm Kitschy Mama:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm medson:
