Hi Therese and all.
Erika just came in the door and said, "Sneaker Pimps! I wore this one out!"
  9:03pm Rick A:

Good Evening Therese and All,
Great beginning, I had the Sneaker Pimps album on a cassette and remember really liking the whole thing though this was a smash hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm steveo:

Therese! Great segue :) Good to hear your show
  9:04pm Rick A:

Yes, you're beginning with two fabulous divas across musical genres!

I musta missed the boat on sneaker pimps. Remember the song, but never owned album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm joe mulligan:

@Jeff from Harrison it's the harp!
@Destroit Somehow over the years I've conflated "6 Underground" by sneaker pimps and "wandering star" by portishead in my mind.. both excellent trip-hop/trip-pop tunes from the mid 90s
  9:07pm Robm:

And now elvis costello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm steveo:

12 plays since 2003, Robm; kind of a lot :)

Evening Therese. Great to come in and hear your show after mowing the lawn.

Wednesday is my trivia night normally. I’ve been missing a great radio show! Glad to hear it tonight - Thanks, Therese!

Madison Cawthorne lost re-election. Small victories, Therese.

@DanFA- yes! I'll be glad to never think of that dude ever again.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Therese and faithful.
  9:29pm DanFA:

@Therese Madison Cawthorne looks like he could be in Starship Troopers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Therese:

Maybe that's why he's always trying to carry a gun on airplanes?
  9:33pm DanFA:

@Therese he's the young version of the older vet at the beginning of the movie who's in a wheelchair who says infantry made him the man he is today.
  9:33pm Robm:

@DanFA and therese he is not the sharpest tool in the drawer

Manic Street Preachers! Whenever it happens, it's been too long!

  10:02pm bisfourbunny_cisforchaos_in_la_la:

my friend came over for a shot of vodka and he heard the manic street preachers and told me a story about seeing them soon after richey ‘disappeared.

  10:17pm Dug Deep:

or a knitting/stitch'n'bitch with the Knitters! I'll stop now...great show!
  10:19pm Rick A:

Previously, I had only heard The Dirtbombs version of "Ode to a Black Man". Now I feel complete, thank you, Therese.

I love the show Therese!

Thank youse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt Fiveash:

I remember being at a bar or a party or something with this song playing and people singing along with the chorus "Sounds like the Breeders"
  10:33pm Rick A:

To hear songs like "Seether" on commercial radio was one of the highlights of the 90s. Of course, at that time, music snobs were probably thumbing their noses at bands like Veruca Salt. Now, they sound even better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Therese:

@Fiveash- were you at the Model Cafe in Allston?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Matt Fiveash:

No but geographically not far!
  10:35pm Harry Corvair:

Oh hell yes

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Therese:

Across the street at the Silhouette?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Matt Fiveash:

I only recently learned that back in the day they called Lower Allston "L.A."!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Therese:

What?! That's dumb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Matt Fiveash:

Yes very dumb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Matt Fiveash:

L.A.= just over the bridge from Cambridge! Take the 66
  10:45pm Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Realtors in West Palm Beach, Florida, tried calling this one neighborhood south of Southern Boulevard "SoSo." Not sure that one stick.
  10:46pm ?:

LA. Los Alamos
  10:47pm Rick A:

I lived in Greenville, North Carolina for four years. People there called it "G-Vegas" because it is a college town with a lot of cheesy bars which is both incredibly stupid and really sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm karlward:

Kind of like when Nashville was promoting itself as "Nashvegas"
Avatar 10:48pm TDK60:

Hi DJ Therese. They say that people like me should go to sleep. Maybe so, but for now radio is the plan..
Avatar 10:49pm 21:

Hi Therese..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Therese:

@RickA- North Carolina likes to Vegasify their towns. My parents live in Kernersville, which I've heard referred to as K-Vegas

Therese, that provides context. I'm thinking Charlotte and Raleigh do not engage in such linguistic shenanigans.
