sheila: the heat dome has moved to the prairies, but the hottest place in canada during the heat wave was lytton, bc (it broke its own record three times during) which has now been 98% destroyed by a wildfire ... please spare a thought for the missing and displaced, many of whom, if not most, are indigenous

Jett you stay safe also, ok?
I see L'Rain got some other plays

in other news (more personal): the last of my grandparents, my paternal grandfather, italian-canadian, who arrived in montreal as a 2 yr-old in the 1920s with his family, passed away over night ... he would have been 99 this august

Who doesn’t like spandex and long hair!
Lots of people but who cares?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm fred:

Over here crop tops are banned is schools though boys can show up topless. Cause they need to breathe without getting distracted. Girls who bare skin are dangerous sluts, but those who cover up are dangerous terrorists. TL;DR girls are dangerous, should be controlled

@Daybreak never will apologize for that
  3:43pm Jett:

I always loved Lydia Lunch, from the beginning. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were great. "Queen Of Siam" spent a lot of time on my turntable.
  3:43pm sydsyd:

omg! Someone showed me this show a week ago, have loved it. I am so excited to listen live for the first time
  3:44pm michael z:

Lydia rules. Thank you Sheila for playing her.
  3:44pm chaos_in_la_la:

After a show at the park church in Greenpoint, i didn’t know what to say to Lydia, so I asked her if she’d pinch me in the face.
.5 seconds later she’d hit me twice and bloodied my lip!
Of course we hugged it out immediately.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:44pm The Oscar:

Afternoon! In two hours I'll be at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge for their reopening night screening of Casablanca, and I cannot express how excited I am. (Also seconded on the Lydia doc!)
  3:45pm chaos_in_la_la:

That’s be *punch*

  3:46pm Rick G:

Got to see Lydia Lunch at a club called the Weathered Wall in Seattle in the mid 90’s. She gave a great reading.
  3:47pm sydsyd:

Are there a group of regulars that usually chat here during the show or is it somewhat random?

Ted Gioia is quite an interesting music writer, I’ll have to check out his substack. YOU should check out his very thoughtful and provocative 2018 book “Music: A Subversive History.” Very eye opening.

@Gurldoggie - I'm in the midst of reading that book. It's marvelous!

  S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

@Sheila Fair enough. I haven't seen the film and am unaware of her violent ways. And I am glad we don't have to agree. I was wary of posting and am glad it wasn't taken the wrong way. :)

Geoffrey in Ottawa—It's so important to me that everyone shares freely and we can listen to and hear each other. So thank you for sharing something you disagreed with me on.
  4:37pm BenZ WPB:

Man, that Joan as Police Woman tune was unreal. Sops you right in your tracks
  S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

@Sheila We are at a strange place when we question ourselves for disagreeing with someone, or for disagreeing with someone we like, perhaps. I will take the time to listen to your show this weekend, so I can better understand the context.
  4:39pm Joey Vento:

I always learn so much from "disagreeing" with others..it's part of what makes us understand each other...fully!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Devin B.:

That honest broker piece was amazing!
  4:41pm Jett:

ty for playing Joan Wasser!!! Love her music! @DjSheilaB I think you have a lot to do with it also.
  4:41pm BH:

the J being pronounced like a J instead of an H reminds me of doing doorknocking for a campaign a few years ago and getting someone with the last name "Cano" who went with "Can-o" instead of "Cah-no"
  4:43pm Mika:

what’s your gig outside the show?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Miss G:

*waves to all* Am in the midst of kerfuffle so can't listen today, thus so looking forwards to archive, but checked in and Vanessa Tara I've always gotten a lot out of your comments, so I send my heartfelt condolences for your loss. What is happening in Canada has so many repercussions (that we down here well know.) Today is the birthday of an elder in my family who passed last year (two days before lockdown) and so I can empathize. Thank you Sheila B for "The Honest Broker!!!"

What helps me overcome feelings of humiliation or fear in a face to face social situation is I tell myself the other person/people feels somthing similar. That helps me feel OK!

Thank you Sheila that was what I wanted to hear this eve. I’m working now and had that thought of ‘who are my people’ today and glad I connected to what you said. Thank you from Liverpool, UK!

Thank you for your lovely comments, AndreaK, Late Bloomer, HyperDose, Miss G, + PaulRobeson1920!
  4:50pm Jett:

@DjSheilaB You need to be true to yourself, and your taste. Whatever I like, I like. What I dislike, I dislike. I'm not just going to like something because someone is telling me it is great. If it is someone who has a taste that respect and admire like for example, you. I will give something a bit more of a chance, but if I don't like it, bottom line is, I don't like it. Always be true to yourself Sheila, and please don't change. That is one of the qualities that I love so much about you. Most of all, I love your unbridled passion for what you like.

Miss G: thank you ... i consider 98 (almost 99) yrs to be a great achievement in longevity ... i think my grandfather was happy for just about all of it

Not to mention, that the Sophisticated Boom Boom tshirt I received this week is GORGEOUS, and I was a bit worried about the graphic of the hand placement, but it works for me perfectly and I can't wait to wear it! It is really beautiful and golden!
Avatar 4:51pm djsheilab:

Vanessa Tara—I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather. 98 years is most certainly an achievement. Sending my love + condolences.
  4:51pm WM:

I love everything you just said, Shelia. We have polar opposite tastes in music. I never listened to girl pop and conversely I'm a great jazz fan. I was seduced by your presentation and personality. I'm a better man for listening to your show and learning to appreciate girl pop.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Vanessa Tara:

my father remembers his father listening to a brenda lee or connie francis record and bawling his eyes out ... i do the same with soul music, doo wop, some gospel
Avatar 4:53pm djsheilab:

I so much appreciate your comment, WM. Thank you!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Vanessa Tara:

there are certain songs: brenda and the tabs doing "that's the price you have to pay" or the moments doing "love on a two way street" or the chantels doing "look in my eyes" which make me crumble

Vanessa Tara, music so connects us. . .two weeks ago we all gathered at the cemetery for the first time. I played on my phone my parents' favorite song, "Always" Irving Berlin -- the slow Frank Sinatra version. When this person was in a coma, we played alot this Yo Yo Ma piece he loved, Bach: Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, Prélude, and it really seemed to help him. He played cello in the local amateur orchestra, he learned it after age 50.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Gurldoggie:

This song is blowing my mind.
