Be shaken. Be stirred. A whimsical wham-bam of exotic enchantments, sleazy oddities, pop fancies, and swingin’ slingers broadcast from Ridgewood, NYC’s very own Shangri-Lounge. Best served chilled, garnished with signature swizzle schtick.

@DJ Shangri-Va-Va, that Johnny Faro was the perfect soundtrack as I sent my last work email of the day! Time to hang out.

@Scott67, I hope the new year is treating you and Gus well!

Ha! That's perfect. Time to punch out, and tune in!

WR:

Time (and the WFMU schedule) keeps moving on and I can hardly keep up. I understand we have to order food in order to be allowed to loiter. Beer & cheese platter with sone of those little pickles for me.
Avatar 6:15pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

Oh yes. It's also a two-drink minimum, WR. I'm afraid we don't have beer. Shirley Temples or Dirty Shirley's, only.
Avatar 6:15pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

This is a classy establishment.

WR, let me get this one, I just grabbed a beer, & there's cheese& a jar of Dill Pickles in the fridge too. 🍻

Hey Otis! One day I will wake up at 3am & listen to your show live mate.
Avatar 6:19pm
Otis Fodder:

I like all so far. Santo & Johnny are always a dream. This one, Stalkin' is a scorcher! Won't be much on chat, moving into the kitchen, but listenin'... making some veggie dogs.
Avatar 6:20pm
Otis Fodder:

Ha Scott! Sleep first pal. But if you can't sleep one night, pop into chat and I'm sure the others and I will keep you awake with talk of food. Usually conversations in Sheena's end up talking about what's for dinner.
Avatar 6:20pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

Nice! Enjoy them dogs.

WR:

As it is a classy establishment, I'll take some Dirty Shirleys.

Thanks Scott67, if we tip big in advance they'll let us keep the beers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm
Scott67:

Otis, send me the recipe! I've been wanting to make a meatless dog. I thought of using kidney beans as a base.
Avatar 6:23pm
Otis Fodder:

I'm cheating, I have store-bought veggie merguez dogs and picked up some buns from the bakery, super fresh. 3 dogs and a rum n coke on the bill. Back towards the end of the show all full and moving slow.
Avatar 6:23pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

Wow, I've never heard of anyone making homemade veggie dogs! Just burgers. I'd imagine you'd need a good mold. Or, I suppose you could roll them up. So many possibilities!
Avatar 6:24pm
Otis Fodder:

Back in a bit. BTW - that logo and banner Shangri-La are tops!

Gus is good with any food talk, even veggies. 😎🐾

Scott67:

Shangri, it will definitely be an experiment, or 10. I always like making up my own alternatives to "fast food".
Avatar 6:34pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

in NYC, quite a few vegan "fast food" spots have opened up in recent years. it's grown at a very fast pace. i enjoy some of it! i try to avoid the stuff like fake chicken though. i'd much rather just eat a plate of beanz. i suppose if you are truly vegan, you are grateful to have it, however.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm
Scott67:

Yeah! I don't like the factory food idea of vegan. There's so many real alternatives to mimicking meat with muck. I'mean not even Vegetarian, but working on not eating meat ever or rarely. Cheese on the other hand I can't imagine not eating.
Avatar 6:41pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

Yeah, it certainly doesn't hurt to take a break from it here and there!

What would we do without Discogs (as a society)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm
Scott67:

Cool Granny's! Will hunt it down, Gmail seems to send all my WFMU mail to spam for some reason!? I'm happy to chat about what I know, but I'm certainly not authority on the subject of music like so many listeners are. But "alternative" is my taste, if that means not commercial crap.

I do work visas for international performing artists (mostly bands and DJ's), and I've done a fair share for Australians.

just looked it up. April Stevens is 91 years old..

I've done visas for some very cool Australians. After refreshing my memory. But, I cannot disclose their actual names.

Would love to go to Australia.. but you know, bugs and snakes...
Avatar 7:27pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

Yes, I do wonder it could be!
Avatar 7:27pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

The bugs and snakes would not be rampant in the cities, however.
Avatar 7:28pm
shangri-va-va-voom:

I definitely would not want to encounter any giant spiders. But, I assume that's not generally an issue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm
Scott67:

Some shit hot Aussie bands were around as I grew up. I reckon they'd resonate with WFMU listeners.
Avatar 7:30pm

Granny, you should look up Paddy Harrison in Melbourne. If your looking for blokes in Australian also about Australian music. At least he could maybe introduce you to others.

shanGrizzly, re spiders; ask Otis to send you the photo of what's on my hand in my Facebook page. That was only a medium one.

I'm still scared of spiders but not snakes, only for Gus'so sake do I watch for snakes now. I just challenged myself to handle a harmless but huge spider I found in my bedroom one morning Then released it in the garden.

I personally find you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. (But, let's not find a way to relate this back to spiders, plz.)

shangri-va-va-voom:

Yes! Scott, there is a documentary on WFMU's site, "don't think i've forgotten cambodia's lost rock and roll"! And, it's so interesting. The soundtrack is very good, but it all requires an even deeper dive. Pan Ron was a major figure.

Yes! That version is amazing! Betty Chung is from Hong Kong.

Dropped my tablet I realized can mean several things alluding to craziness. 😎 Will let you guys decide which.

Yes, it really is, Dom. Definitely added a lot of context for me. And, that's important.

I will get on it! I'm interested in that whole SE Asian music cover scene. Vietnamese covers during the war are something that resonate with me. Given Australia's involvement in the conflict.
