Hey gang! Can anyone confirm that I'm on air?
Avatar 6:06am fabioatc:

What's this brazilian song?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 6:07am Ken From Hyde Park:

Listening on the stream and it's sounding good.
Avatar 6:08am djsheilab:

Just updated the playlist fabioatc. Thanks for confirming I'm on air Ken!

Sophisticated bonjour Sheila B !
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 6:10am Guido from Cologne:

Hello Sheila, hello Friends!
  6:11am sugarwolf:

Good morning!
Avatar 6:15am djsheilab:

Morning to you all! I thought I'd ease you in gently with soft sounds of Brazil + Billy Fury.
  6:15am Cooh John:

Good morning djsheilab and boom boomers.
  6:25am @In_TheGroove:

Greetings from sunny downtown Henley-on-Thames. Just taken The Fire Escape's Psychotic Reaction off the record deck to tune in. Great stuff so far...
Avatar 6:38am pierre:

NIAGARA !!! amazing :)
  6:40am gavalogue:

6music OFF. WFMU ON. Aaaaaaaah, that's better! hello, good morning, great tunes :)
Avatar 6:44am davej:

@gavalogue I know what you mean. 6music is unlistenable during the UK daytime hours.
  6:50am sugarwolf:

Sheila, were your ears burning this weekend? I was discussing with a friend how cool it was that there were more women DJs and girl pop/ lady singers being played on the air.
Avatar 6:53am djsheilab:

@gavalogue @davej Glad you have WFMU to turn to in times of need.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00am ausmanx:

anyone out there speak Rapanui? got some subtitling to do and no Rapanui translator. i wonder if there are any songs in Rapanui?
Avatar 7:01am djsheilab:

Thanks for making this newbie feel most welcome @sugarwolf! Girl-pop has been under-appreciated for far too long. So I'm most chuffed to do my part in trying to change that.
  7:07am Will:

Gee whiz and ye-ye, your show makes livin' fun. Best new show on FMU!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 7:14am Guido from Cologne:

Sad song:
Marion "Wie soll es weiter gehn" (1966)

Unhappy teenage love, parents do not allow to see her boyfriend etc.
I can send file.
(will send original LP to WFMU some time. One copy is reserved already.)
Avatar 7:17am djsheilab:

Wow @will that's quite a compliment. @guido from cologne Marvelous! Haven't heard that one so will listen after the show.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 7:18am Guido from Cologne:

German Girl-Pop @ it's best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27am Adrian in London:

Dammit! Was busy and the show slipped my mind; still, I can catch up. Morning all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31am Adrian in London:

This Brel cover reminds me there was a great hour-long documentary about French pop on BBC4 the other week, presented by Petula Clark. Anyone see it?
Avatar 7:34am djsheilab:

You English folk are so lucky. Nothing like that on TV in the US.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37am Adrian in London:

There are some good things on BBC4, it's true. By the way, I was in Paris last week and came across a tiny, insanely messy, record shop called Violetera, chock-ull of French girl-pop 45s. France Gall, Francoise, Dalida, and so on. Prices were a bit on the high side, sadly, but a real treasure trove.
Avatar 7:38am mauri:

A fine morning Sheila! Sounding good.
  7:42am a listener:

https://youtu.be/G38VtHI-jtU here you go djsheilab! that beeb doc about French song. Hope it works in USA.
  7:42am a listener:

love the show, by the way :)
Avatar 7:50am djsheilab:

Thanks @a listener! An insanely messy record shop in Paris sounds right up my street @Adrian in London. Shame you can't find the good quality French EPs for a bargain anymore.
Avatar 7:52am duke:

I'm glad I got here in time for Chara
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54am Adrian in London:

@djsheilab The chap in the shop looked a bit taken aback when I walked in. He's had it for 30 years. There were no racks or anything, just boxes and clutter. He knew where everything was though.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 8:15am Guido from Cologne:

Schulmadchen Report (school girl report) was a pseudo-documentary soft-porn film series from the early 70ies.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20am AndrewC.:

I saw that show Adrian. That Jacques Brel has a mighty set of teeth...
Avatar 8:21am djsheilab:

The comments are back! Thanks for the melancholia suggestions, friends! Looking forward to putting this one together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21am Adrian in London:

@AndrewC It was good. Obviously, it could have been hours longer but did have some great footage of Jane Birkin looking amazing!
  8:27am chicken:

I woke up this morning out of a deep depression and your music (coincidentally) has been a really great soundtrack to feeling alive and clear minded again. Thx for the tunes!!
Avatar 8:36am quinn:

Yes. Absolutely having a morning dance party in the kitchen with the family.
Avatar 8:36am djsheilab:

I'm so happy my set has brought you some light @chicken Isn't that the magic of music? Wishing you well!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 8:51am Ken From Hyde Park:

Have a sophisticated week. Bye!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:00am Ken From Hyde Park:
