Hello Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm spodiodi:

Dolly is great. 3 days ago, I went on a walk and noticed this written on a little brown piece of paper "And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little White a**es are the only ones that matter? No!" -- Dolly Parton <3 <3

Hi Therese, nice to hear you this evening!
Avatar 6:20pm K8:

@ luka, HyperDose, spodi...yeah, my folks got their first shot this week, sort of by accident? But it was so overwhelming, the relief...we just need to hang on a bit longer. I miss them so much...I know we're all feeling that. Emotion! Too much sometimes during all of this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm spodiodi:

that's great, K8! please keep the hopeful stories coming, everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm spodiodi:

to your folks as well, HyperDose!

My dear mother doesn't like shots, so she's refusing the vaccine. I need to bake it into a pie, it appears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm spodiodi:

my Mom is on the list, but i don't know if there's any more info yet.

pie ftw, Ken. (good luck!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Therese:

Yes! So good to hear of folks getting the vaccine! It's going to take awhile, but still, OPTIMISM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Therese:

Agree on the pie method, @KenFHP.
Avatar 6:25pm K8:

Thanks, Spodi! Bake that pie, Ken! We're gonna get out of this sooner or later. My goodness, that Princess Demeny song was...perfect.

Absolutely killing it tonight! Small request- I’m making dinner & streaming thru sonos. Can’t turn the volume up more- the broadcast level is lower than usual?

Which mambo is more authentic to you? The Brooklyn style, or the Weehawken style? @Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hi Therese, Crew, fellow travelers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm HyperDose:

@K8 Similar situation with my step mom. My dad is over the age requirement, guess she tagged along and they gave her one too (not complaining).

@spodiodi Thank you! Hoping your loved ones are safe as well.

Hey hey Mariano and Morphe! Welcome! @HyperDose...there is a lot of weirdness in trying to get appointments, at least in NYC, maybe in Seattle, too, where my folks are. So glad both your folks got the ball rolling with it...

Wow. South mountain reservation. My high school years

@K8 I luckily read people's experiences here and on my town website, then relayed the "just show up" info to them. Glad I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm spodiodi:

many chazzwazzas in your area, Scott?

I feel sorry for those who have not experienced NJ's special brand of weirdness, @HyperDose.

*takes more notes*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm mariano:

Scott67: The slang term my friends in Australia kept using with me but wouldn't tell me what it meant was warning me that I was going to get dacked at some point. I had to ask a Vietnamese cab driver, who found it all too funny. "You go get dacked now!" were his last words to me.

Hi Everyone. Hi Hyper.

@luka I get that reference :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm mariano:

Scott67: Yes, at a party, finally. They had a game of dack the Yank planned for me, after which I was considered duly initiated. Why don't you do the honors and tell everyone what it is; it is your lingo after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Therese:

Thanks, Vanessa! That one has always been one of my favorites.
  7:01pm Jett:

@Therese You are on fire 🔥 Playing some great stuff!

hi NikiA, Doug in JC
  7:01pm Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Super nice choice ... I once saw Natalie playing (or attempting to remember) that song solo on the piano, and it was magical.
Avatar 7:01pm NikiA:

Hi Mariano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Scott67:

It can be a very sobbering experience. I only got dacked once, because I was wearing trackie dacks, it was a traditional thing at my Primary School. 👖
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Doug in JC:

Hello spodiodi, Therese, everyone
  7:02pm Dave Miss:

I loved Fleabag

@luka- my BF is SUPER into Cobra Kai. So is Michele with one L, BTW.
  7:03pm Jett:

I seem to remember "Sandra" being on Manilow II. One of his better albums. Not much of a fan of him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm spodiodi:

looks like "pantsted" at a glance
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Scott67:

Dacked, is to suddenly get your strides yanked down in a public place by a friend. Think opposite wedgie.
Avatar 7:04pm K8:

Better Things is a big fave of mine! We've been watching Small Axe, too, a Steve McQueen BBC series...real, real good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm xtrakrispy:

The mother on The Restaurant (a Swedish show) is not underestimated by the men. However, the daughter - who the show largely revolves around, IS underestimated. Good show though...A great history of the development of Sweden in the mid-century following WWII.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm luka:

@therese i need to go back to the Morricone Island special.

Mariano, was it a double dacking, or did they go easy on you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm spodiodi:

almost checked that Steve McQueen one out, K8. now i surely will
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm mariano:

Scott67: Yep, fella pulled my jeans down at the party and my friend said (using the nickname they'd given me because everything has to be one syllable) "Alright, Madge, you've been dacked!" then there was a cheer and we toasted while I still had my jeans around my ankles.

PS: It was a single, PG-rated dacking, thankfully.

NikiA! Hope the weekend has been treating you well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Scott67:

Ahh! The dignified dacking reserved for foreign visitors. You didn't go full local. I dread the idea now as I'm "out there Jerry, and loving it"! Too hot for Reg Grundiy's here.
  7:09pm Altered Beets:

I don't know if this exists, but I have been having visions of Bernie and his mittens as Maturin, The Cosmos-Turtle of the Stephen King universe. I know the Trump/Pennywise memes have long since been made...

Derry Girls and Gavin & Stacey are great, both UK comedies. Currently reading Hold Still by Sally Mann

Could "Mr. Penguin" by Lunar Funk be far behind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm mariano:

Scott67: It's a nickname I'm very fond of, and which only my Aussie friends have used, never caught on with anyone else. They came up with it all the way back in '98 when we all lived in the same house in Berlin so I've had it for over 20 years now.
  7:16pm Listener Schned:

Therese!! Thanks for all the incredible programming, lo, these many years!! To find filmic media featuring women getting life done w/o cliche, you may have to go to documentaries- there's 1 about the Argentine cantadora Mercedes Sosa- it's gotta be out there somewhere- p.s. as to reading, try reading aloud- no, seriously!

Hi @Wendy!! I'm glad to know you're here. I'm usually listening quietly myself...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Donate your mitten money, and make your own mittens! You need a wool sweater you accidentally put into the washing machine, some scissors, a needle, and thread.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Therese:

And who among us has not accidentally put a wool sweater in the washing mashing?

grateful for this show. i had a lot of pew pews in my head today.

Exactly! And if you haven't shrunk your sweater, your local thrift store probably has a bunch it's sending to the rag trade.

Does SMK not like later Roxy Music, or is the "something" you're "going to pull" a feature of the set as a whole?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I love early Roxy Music so much. But none of it makes me swoon like "More Than This." <3

Therese, my Professional says me listening & chatting on WFMU is good for me too.
Roxy Music!! I'm tearing up remembering cranking up this my first ever purchased record, on my parent's sterio while they were out.
I opened the front door and gazed at all my possible figures. ❤

@Steveo: Ohhhh...that's such a gorgeous cheese. I haven't had it in SO long. We don't seem to get many Portuguese cheeses up here. Fun fact: that cheese uses thistle instead of rennet!
  7:44pm Jett:

I prefer the Dooley Wilson original on this one.

thistle! now i've got some studying to do :) yeah it was nice

barry! yes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

That RM was quite nice. If it was the 45 at 33 or Chipmunks-style, that would have been something to apologize for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Wendy del Formaggio:

BARRY MANILOW!!! I love this song. Family legend claims Barry and I are not-too-distant cousins. I really hope it's true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm steveo:

"Did you know that you can make a perfectly good rennet substitute from a weed that might be growing in your yard?

This recipe uses Bull Thistle (cirsium vulgare), a purple thistle that is considered a weed in most places"

OK!

@Wendy! It's true, you just need to believe it! Also, the Rico whistle kills me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Doug in JC:

bull thistle is a nasty invasive in these parts. I didn't know about the rennet connection though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm spodiodi:

the passion
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Scott67:

Wendy you too? Maybe it's a Kevin Bacon thing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm luka:

jeez this song is way more violent than i remember.
  7:48pm headcleaner:

"chairs was smashed in two", not "were smashed".... barry's eye for detail is simply impeccable

the tragedy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I love that you can hear Barry's old-time Jewish Brooklyn accent in this song. He does not try to hide it. <3

Next up, Camila Cabello, "Havana." (I in fact enjoy that song, too.)

@Scott67: Maybe WE are cousins! Are your people from Russia and Germany, by way of Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Paterson?

@Dave in VT- who can blame her!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Dave in VT:

not me. i am doing the same, and i never lost a tony
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@Doug in JC: What better way to utilize an invasive plant? Boil and smash it (or however they do) to make cheese! Also, I wonder if that thistle is invasive in Spain and Portugal, where it's a popular cheesemaking ingredient.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Dave in VT:

now, a career in dance. that is something i can lament.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm steveo:

wait what was the "bad" song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Doug in JC:

@wendy I have a lot of potential recipes for invasives but I can't seem to find any growing in a place where I consider things to be edible. I suppose I could garden some of them. Bull thistle is native in Europe, so no problems there

You're a funny fellow, Dave from VT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm spodiodi:

thanks, Therese! great show!

thanks, Skeleton Crew! see you all

Thank you, Therese! The world is feeling brighter somehow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@Doug in JC: We have a serious Japanese knotweed problem in VT, which was exacerbated by Tropical Storm Irene. If you have a recipe for knotweed, come up this way in the summer and forage to your heart's content. It grows all over the damn place.

Thanks Therese!

brooklyn is about 2/3 knotweed

@ynod, it's all true
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Doug in JC:

@wendy Their shoots are supposed to be like a tangy asparagus! Don't wait until summer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm steveo:

it's not very cozy but it's nice to walk on than thistle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Scott67:

Therese, thanks for the memories & making happy New ones too! 😎🤙❤🌏
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Mr. Pumpy:

That's knotweed!
  7:55pm Jett:

@Therese Have a great week, thanks for the music, Stay well, and safe. Much 💕 love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@Doug in JC: Yeah, I've heard that, too. I haven't tried it because I'm not much of a forager.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Doug in JC:

@Mr. Pumpy Then what is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm steveo:

thanks, therese, i enjoyed the things i heard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Therese. I hope Olivia got her food delivery and it wasn't assailed by Bruce or Matt before she could indulge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Thanks for the lovely musical interludes, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Therese:

@Doug- I finally defeated the knotweed incursion out back, had I known, I would have harvested it and sold at the Farmers' Market.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Scott67:

Wendy, nope, Scotland, Switzerland, Ireland, Cornwall.
I think it was an urban legend I heard.😎🌏
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Therese:

Thank you all for checking in! Stay well, and I'll see you back here next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Doug in JC:

@Therese watch for new shoots in the spring! It sticks around. Thanks for being on the air once again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Wendy del Formaggio:

@Scott67: Aww, I'm sorry. Then again, according to the wikipedia entry on Barry, his dad's mom was Irish, so maybe....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Ryansterlingvirtue:
