Recently Mona played this song from 1983, but I didn't know it, Ivor Cutler and Linda Hirst, "Women Of The World" and I shared it with some friends, some who were at the Women's March, some who work in social justice, and they just loved it! So thank you Mona!

I can only hear the Beautiful South in my left ear.

(Autocorrect tried to turn that into "left rear", by the way.)
Avatar 🖤 Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Handy Haversack:

I'm outside with the Bluetooth speaker. There's a periodic buzz that I'm not sure if it's the speaker suddenly erroring or what? Like at the beginning of the last track and now in this one as well. I don't know if that's helpful!

Now, Wild Swans in my left ear... But my earbuds have a replaceable cable, and I may have replaced it the wrong way 'round last time, so it could be right-channel-only.

Phillippe, there were goslings on the creek today, I saw from the bridge. Baby starlings back here being extremely unquiet. The White Wind (cottonwood) has begun to blow from beyond the Wall of Sleep (knot weed). How's the cove and all who dwell there?
Avatar 3:35pm Jeff Moore:

Hey, Mona! Thanks for being a fill-in hero.

Way to roll with the technical punches. The show's already been swell nonetheless!

I hope you're feeling combobulated by now as the hassle of getting into the station fades and the weirdness of being there while the big light is still glaring loses its power to distract and the hookup problems get resolved and you ride the wave of live DJ adaptiveness to triumph.

The music was great, Mona! They raised $1500, too! It was a little stressful for K8, but a great night for the crowd, and several WFMU listeners made it out. They're playing next Wed. at Wonderville, in case you're around. Hope you're feeling better!

I hear a kind of harmonic overtone in my right ear on this Dory Previn song. Not sure if it's at your end, or at my end. It's possible in just having a stroke or some other brain malfunction, though.

Hello Mona and Everyone (and yes, um, hi, Handy...). I am killing time in an Irish pub on the Upper East Side before teaching a writing workshop, and it is KILLING me that I don't have headphones, and I don't think this is the kind of place that's gonna take my radio requests. I am just watching the playlist and feeling, you know, the UES bar in the afternoon blues over here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Miss G:

OH no! K8! The power of imagination, your remembering these songs, it is more powerful than even the UES! I taught up there! I know!

The cover of Cohen that helped make this song kind of a standard.

Hey K8! Sorry I couldn't make your last show, per other posts, work is keeping me busier than a one-legged man trying to stamp out a fire in an amno warehouse...and that was BEFORE I took on more job duties. Also Mom. Hope to be able to make a weeknight show soon.
Avatar 🖤 Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Phillippe:

@Handy we have a couple different-sized egrets coming in and out. Osprey are nesting across the cove. We had a pair of geese with a handful of goslings, but the little ones were only around for a day. The pair is still here, but no babies (though it could be a different pair, I didn't check IDs). A couple hawks and herons. Gonna be a big snake year if the amount of sea grass already established is any indicator (and it usually is). Oooh, and a neighbor told me she saw a pair of skates doing a little dance off her pier!

@tim from washington et al:

Yeah, a good cover can be a breath of fresh air, even if you love love love the original.

Sometimes especially if you love a song but didn't quite ever get around to looking up and reading all the lyrics...

So, it's "on America's tortured brow" not "on a merrycast orchard row"? Ohh, that kind of makes a lot more sense.

Yes, I feel like an idiot for not going to see Jeff Buckley, glad you did get to K8. Wish I could be there on June 1 (my friends there from Germany.) If I win the Lotto tomorrow then YES! This song, however, makes me think that Mona has the 411 on the monkeypox situation and. . .I'll stop

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm tim from washington:

Aaron from Minneapolis?!? Cool. I bet that was a real pleasure meeting him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm McGroovey:

There are multiple verses of Hallelujah that are rarely heard. I think I remember hearing or reading an interview with Leonard Cohen or John Cale, talking about Hallelujah. Cale told Cohen he wanted to cover it, asked Cohen for the correct lyrics, and Cohen sent Cale verses that weren't on the original Leonard Cohen album version, and Cale picked his favorites. Cohen apparently started doing it live John Cale's way after that.

That's more-or-less the story.

I think the Jeff Buckley version also follows the John Cale version (which is on the Cale album Fragments of a Rainy Season).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm McGroovey:

Hallelujah is a great song. Since I'm not plugged into pop culture, I didn't know EVERYONE was covering it until I went to a couple open mics, and EVERYONE was covering it, and then I checked on YouTube, and EVERYONE on YouTube was covering it. I only had heard the LC, Cale, and Jeff Buckley versions until then.

It was the first song I learned to play on the ukulele, and the only song I can always remember without looking for my song charts (even my own songs).

But I'd never play it in front of other people because EVERYONE plays it more-than-enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm tim from washington:

@Miss G - that just reminded me that I am waay behind on the latest Love and Rockets series. I love that comic.

OK the other one we'd sing out, it's not so "cool," but factually, it's "I might like you better if we slept together"

oh man, this and torn between lovers had my pubescent mind wondering what was going on between the male and female species.

You haven't lived until you've heard John Schnall's Midnight Matinee riff on "I've Never Been To Me"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm mariano:

Polari's a fascinating subject. Its roots go back to 18th-century (or even earlier) Roma and underworld slang. Terms like drag, butch, campy, ogle, and a few others come from Polari. Bona drag = "nice threads."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Webhamster Henry:

My then-fiancee almost left me for playing an aircheck of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Niall:

Oh wow this... era of songs. Damn, it takes me back to radios in the kitchen, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm tim from washington:

I'd like to think that Clay Pigeon and Fabio slow dance to this song.

When this Charlene "I've Never Been to Me" came out
1) I thought it was on Free to Be (You and Me)
2) Thought she was saying she'd never seen her knees 😂

Patrons shushing a librarian -- dogs and cats living together! It'll be anarchy!

That actually sounded a lot like something off "Music of Mind Control."

My friend just posted a video link to this Charlene song today on Facebook, coincidentally! It's the Her Solid Gold lip-synch performance... youtu.be...

@Mona - I told QTR (Quartermusic of Brooklyn) that you played a song of hers on FMU - she was very excited to hear that. Was a few weeks back, just remembered that.

Feeling the oldies/disco direction? If so, then it’s not “too late to turn back now”.
Avatar 5:44pm Jeff Moore:

If you're still casting about for additional song notions... the discussion of Polari makes me want to hear Bowie's Girl Loves Me again, or... gee, we haven't heard any Cure yet today (and it's always interesting to see what people reach for when they reach for some Cure).
Avatar 🖤 Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Handy Haversack:

Ooo, good challenge, Jeff Moore!
  5:45pm gauche knee:

That Charlene song makes much more sense now vs hearing your friends’ mom sing it zoned after picking us up from elementary school.

Also, Mona in the midday?! Clay doing double shift? Love it but hope everyone’s alright and not another Covid thing 🤞🏾

I just mean that my brain immediately seized up while trying to reach for four different Cure albums all at the same time -- and I don't have the WFMU library!
