Hi Therese and everyone -- Happy Labor Day, glad to be here witchoos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am Ken From Hyde Park:

Ah so, Therese. You're switching from lead-off to clean-up with the new schedule. Jumping to the opposite corner of the grid. I hope that all works out well.

Ahh! Labor! Day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Therese:

Hi everyone!
  12:20am P-90:

Hi Therese! Thanks for helping with the "back-to-school blues"! Stevie an interesting choice here...
  12:21am P-90:

Just enough

  12:25am zenkoan:

Next up: "Work Bitch" by Britney Spears. I dare ya, Therese. : )
Or, more seriously: "Work To Do" by the Isley Bros?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28am Ken From Hyde Park:

I hope "Working at the Factory" by The Kinks comes on at some point today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am mariano:

This is a perfect theme, I'm working right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am Fuzzy:

Ha -- I tried using Google-fu to see if anyone played this Vogues tune yet this weekend -- answered my question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am mariano:

Even the background music is on-point!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am Fuzzy:

Even the bed music is appropriate!

I’m going to drink rosé in white jeans any time of the year I want to.

I don't want to go on record endorsing Huey Lewis, but there is "Workin' for a Livin'"...
  12:40am zenkoan:

Would also genuinely love to hear "She Works Hard For Her Money" by the immortal Donna Summer, if the labor theme is continuing....
  12:44am JakeGould:

Didn’t Lee Dorsey own a car place? Like a repair or oil/lube place? That seems like a decent job.
  12:47am P-90:

Lee Dorsey: another of those underrated artists. And did he really wind up with a car dealership? Or was it someone with a similar name?
  12:48am JakeGould:

“He retired from boxing in 1955 and returned to New Orleans, where he opened an auto repair business as well as singing in clubs at night.” en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am mariano:

Lee Dorsey was/is a pretty big name in the New Orleans music scene, "Give It Up" is one of my all-time faves. Didn't know about the car place though, cool bit of trivia! Hey, what about Dolly Parton's "9 to 5"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51am mariano:

Was about to say, we need more positive songs about workplace sexual harassment ;) (Kidding, not being a scold!).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm guessing there are enough Johnny Cash songs to fill out an entire set with this theme.
  1:03am JakeGould:

I once was let go from a summer job and as I exited the manger’s office, Ray Charle’s “Hit the Road Jack” came on. Thanks CBS-FM!

  1:13am JakeGould:

Morrissey was once looking for a job and then he found a job. Was that connected to the Mr. Shankly situation? Or was that the Christmas cards for the mentally ill situation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am mariano:

I didn't realize that he wrote poetry...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18am Fuzzy:

You grow up and you calm down...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am mariano:

So much Chumbawamba could be used... "I'm the boss of the factory, and I've got hunger working for me..."
  1:35am Cooh John:

Awesome playlist. One for the ages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am mariano:

Was about to say, that was "100%"...
  1:37am JakeGould:

50 years ago today exactly, “The Prisoner” began filming. Talk about crazy job exit scenarios! www.bbc.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am mariano:

This song dedicated to Roger Ailes.
Avatar 1:43am ! I X Key !:

! The labor of RPFers goes mostly unrewarded )o=
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am mariano:

Oh cool, Jake, will have to revisit the series, it's been a while. Looks like it's on YouTube too.
  1:49am JimmyfromKearny:

"Don't Forget Your Shovel If You're Going to Go to Work" Christy Moore
  1:50am JakeGould:

*cough* John Handy “Hard Work” *cough*
  1:53am JimmyfromKearny:

There's an actual legal periodical that labor lawyer's used to get called "The Black Lung Reporter"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55am Fuzzy:

There are many work-themed songs that, if I were to suggest them here, would bring the wrath of the 'FMU Gods down upon me. Might even be forced to turn in my t-shirt and stickers!
Avatar 2:07am BrassKnuckles:

Sweet. I don't think I've ever heard Pavement played on this station which is kind of weird.
  2:09am JakeGould:

Pavement gets played on WFMU. Also, *cough* “Forklift” *cough*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14am Fuzzy:

My boss yelled. He's dead to me now.
  2:22am JimmyfromKearny:

Yes! The Internationale. Thank you Therese!
Avatar 2:48am Rod Holcomb:

This show gets better and better.
  2:51am JakeGould:

A quality show is hard work.
