As soon as I heard that bass line I knew which song this was.

Good evening, Therese!

Where does the blue in the sky go when it gets dark?
Avatar 12:20am Jeff:

I often prefer my quick-initial-glance misunderstandings of something written to the actual text I was supposed to have seen.

For instance, on first glance I thought the title of that Yonatan Gat song was "Theme from a Dork Party".

I like that. Maybe I'll have to write that one myself.
  12:27am rw:

Hey Kids!

Jeff, when you have that dork party I'm invited, right?
  12:28am rw:

KFHP I think it goes to the other side of the world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am coelacanth:

nah,it comes right here, to this playlist.

greetings rw!
Avatar 12:31am BadGuyZero:

I still haven't received my swag from the 215 marathon. I've kinda given up on it arriving since it's been 1,800 years. Should I email Joe?
Avatar 12:35am Mary Wing:

You were at the station last night and you didn't come and say hi to me? Damn, sister.
Avatar 12:35am BadGuyZero:

The first time I visited WFMU was to help mail swag out. I folded A LOT of t-shirts that afternoon.
  12:35am sugarwolf:

I haven't gotten my swag yet either but since it is a mouse+ I figured that is usually the last to get sent out...
  12:36am sugarwolf:

It takes a long time to stuff all those envelopes!!
Avatar 12:37am Mary Wing:

I think that sound is coming from the computers under the table.
  12:37am rw:

I don't hear a projector here. Unless it's really subtle.
  12:38am Stork:

OK to be sappy. I too am a sap for the freeform. It was nice meeting you tonight.
Avatar 12:39am BadGuyZero:

Should I turn one of my projectors on as a show of solidarity?
Avatar 12:39am Mary Wing:

Specifically, DAW 1 is pretty noisy.
  12:39am sugarwolf:

When premium CDs were in plastic cases with artwork for the front and back, ooo, that took forever...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am Therese:

Oh, hi Stork! Good to see you made it to your destination. Yes, the sappiness was a result of our conversation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am Therese:

Mary- the sound IS coming from the general area of DAW1...
Avatar 12:45am Jeff:

Oh, wait - DAW1 has an intermittent thing where the fan blade ticks like it's hitting something. On my list to try to fix when nobody's using Studio A.

Think of it like having a playing card in your bicycle spokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Therese:

I like that analogy, Jeff.
  12:51am JakeGould:

Saw some kid yesterday who crushed a plastic cup and stuck it near his back wheel so it could sound like a motor whir when he rode his bike. Most maddening sound ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Mary. Remember yesterday when I mentioned I might reward myself with a Coke at some point. This has changed my mind - www.themarketbusiness.com... Maybe a bowl of cherries would be better.
Avatar 12:56am BadGuyZero:

When I was a kid I had a thing on my bicycle handlebar that made a motorcycle revving sound when I cranked it.
Avatar 12:58am BadGuyZero:

The thing was called Raw Power. I found the commercial on YouTube.

  12:58am JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: If you have constipation caused just having too much fiber/bulk in you a can of Coke is like Draino for your gut. www.telegraph.co.uk...
Avatar 12:59am Mary Wing:

Well, cherries are a good choice. The Coke ain't killed me yet; although I drink a hell of a lot less of it now.
  1:00am JakeGould:

I like slushies/Slurpees™ as well as a few fancy/schmancy soda flavors.
Avatar 1:01am Mary Wing:

I tried that green-label Coke the other day, it was not a pleasant taste at all.
  1:04am JakeGould:

@Mary: Stevia—which is what Coca-Cola Life is flavored with—tastes horrible. I think there are some people who hate cilantro and like stevia out there.

Avatar 1:08am Mary Wing:

  1:08am rw:

Mary, was that from memory??
  1:09am JakeGould:

The Leather Tuscadero mention led me down a slight k-hole that lead me to… “Blanksky’s Beauties” the odd “Happy Days” spinoff with Nancy Walker. Blansky's Beauties
Avatar 1:09am Mary Wing:

Yes, sorta. I sang it out loud, but then went and looked it up to copy and paste, heh.
  1:10am rw:

  1:10am JakeGould:

Ooops, here is the “Blanksky’s Beauties” opening: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 1:11am Mary Wing:

Yeah, considering I don't remember anything else about that show, at all. That song buried itself in my brain somehow.
  1:12am JakeGould:

FWIW, I have always remembered part of the theme of “Hello Larry” since it aired.
Avatar 1:13am BadGuyZero:

I'm fortunate to have a grocery store nearby that caters to the local Latin community. Whenever I need a soda fix I can go there and get pop made with real sugar from Mexico. They also carry a carbonated beverage from Holland called Nikoline Enjoy that's lemon, lime, and mint flavored. It's sort of like a non-alcoholic mojito.
Avatar 1:14am Jon Solomon:

I didn't fall asleep! But now I will!
  1:14am rw:

Hello Larry? Was that a spinoff of... Three's Company?

The Mexican market near my house occasionally has cucumber popsicles coated with cayenne powder.
Avatar 1:16am BadGuyZero:

Wasn't "Hello Larry" a McLean Stevenson show?
  1:17am JakeGould:

“Hello Larry” was a “Differ’nt Strokes” spin off about… a radio personality! “Hello Larry, you talk to people all day for a living. But all those easy answers you are giving. Are you really living your life that way? Portland is a long way from L.A.” www.youtube.com...
  1:18am JakeGould:

“While not a spin-off, Hello, Larry (1979–1980) had a connection to Strokes as it was established in a crossover episode that Philip Drummond and Larry Alder (McLean Stevenson) were old army buddies, and Mr. Drummond had bought the company that owned the radio station Larry worked at as a talk show host.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am Therese:

Jon- the next time you are in Jersey City, please bring one me one of those cucumber popsicles.
  1:23am JakeGould:

Why isn’t there such a thing as a cucumber and watermelon slushie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am Therese:

That sounds like a refreshment overload!
Avatar 1:27am BadGuyZero:

Cucumber, watermelon, and mint!
  1:27am rw:

Therese, they're pretty delicious but seem to be rare. I looked yesterday but didn't have any. They also have pecan popsicles which are more normally stocked.
  1:28am Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Hey Therese! I'm getting a late start listening to your show tonight because of my car dying. Looks like I missed a big "Hello Larry" discussion?
Avatar 1:29am BadGuyZero:

Down here you can get coconut frozen pops that are dipped in dark chocolate. They're pretty great.
  1:29am JakeGould:

@Bob: Not to mention “Blanksky’s Beauties.”
Avatar 1:33am BadGuyZero:

The next back-announce should be fun.
  1:33am rw:

I just found out I don't have to work in the morning! Woo!
  1:37am rw:

Coconut dipped in dark chocolate?!! I need one of those.
Avatar 1:38am BadGuyZero:

I thought this EZTV track was a Wings outtake.
  1:41am rw:

This Yaz track... I'm imagining Therese rollerskating around the studio.
Avatar 1:47am BadGuyZero:

From the studio down into the record library.

Naps are nice!

  1:55am JakeGould:

“Less than average…” So she was on OK Cupid? Only dating sites make people that judgey.
Avatar 1:56am BadGuyZero:

It would make sense to hear Supertramp while having breakfast in America, but not while having dinner in America.
Avatar 1:58am BadGuyZero:

I like NUN. I found out about them because they have a song called "Cronenberg."
  1:59am JakeGould:

@Therese: A few weeks back some of us on the playlist bonded over this one Brooklyn ice cream truck that plays, “Send in the Clowns” as their jingle music. What joy that song brings… NOT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02am Therese:

There is a slight possibility that I imagined this, but I remember an ice cream truck in Jersey City that used the Godfather Theme as its jingle.
  2:04am JakeGould:

@Therese: Maybe you are mixing up ice cream truck jingles with the custom car horns that were a big thing in the 1980s. www.youtube.com...
  2:05am JakeGould:

Or as immortalized by Paulie in the Sopranos. www.youtube.com...
Avatar 2:05am BadGuyZero:

Did it sell chocolate-flavored pops shaped like a horse head?

"I'd like a Khartoum pop, please!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am Ken From Hyde Park:

Oddly, "Superstar" was on my mind on Friday afternoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30am pacific standard simon:

Wow. I just spent 2 hours playing trivia in my local bar, and now I feel totally validated as a human being!
Avatar 2:30am BadGuyZero:

My parents had whichever Carpenters record had their version of "Superstar" on it. I think the parents of every kid born before 1977 had a copy of that Carpenters record. I bet hospitals gave copies of that record to new parents along with a copy of Dr. Spock's book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34am pacific standard simon:

Why does this sound so much like Quicksilver Messenger Service? The Crystal Syphon, I mean. Shawn David McMillen sounds more like Hot Tuna.

@pss: Nixon? Polk?

Polk was not involved, but Nixon was -- as a right answer, and a wrong answer, both. Historian pussies, sorry to say.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54am pacific standard simon:

Then again, whenever they got into the last 15 years, I was totally lost.
  2:55am JakeGould:

@pss: It's amazing to me how even in 2015 Nixon is still considered the worst president. It's like him and Spiro Agnew are patsy's for political corruption that will never fade away.
  2:57am Steve-O:

Hi guys! Sorry I didn't comment earlier, but great show tonight, Therese! And I hope you have a lovely week. =)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am pacific standard simon:

NOT Nick Drake? Huh.
Avatar 2:59am BadGuyZero:

Have a great week everyone! Especially you, Therese.

See you here next time.
  2:59am Steve-O:

@Jake & Simon: If you ask me, if anything, James K. Polk might just be the most overrated President of all time. I mean, sure, he was there when we bought the Southwest from Mexico, but if anything, he was mainly just in the right place at the right time.

And Nixon was a crook, but if you want my opinion, I'd think that Andrew Jackson was the worst President ever(incompetent, started the Trail of Tears, etc.), apart from maybe James Buchanan(coward, backed down in face of imminent Reb treason).
Avatar 2:59am slowbear:

loved that jackson c frank man
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00am Ken From Hyde Park:

Enjoy your week, Therese. Another fine show, as usual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05am pacific standard simon:

@Steve-O - I hate Jackson, but Bush Jr and Buchanan are my candidates for for worst presidents ever.
