Hi Mr. Fine Wine and downtown soul benders!

Hey all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Mr Fine Wine. WFMU and especially Joe, Duane & yourself got a shout out by photographer Dean Chalkley during his radio show from London yesterday. He’s probably up late listening tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi everyone
Avatar 8:03pm Mike & Dusty:

this is now a good evening, all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

Will Misa be joining us tonight Kris with further tales of kitchen grudges?
  8:06pm Dave Conehead:

Hello and good Shabbos from my apt in Bed Stuy..
can’t help but thinking of my dearly departed dad, who turned me on to 50’s rock and roll.
Love it..
thanks bro
Avatar 8:07pm Kris Holmes:

Nah, she's napping right now.
  8:07pm Dave Conehead:

Drinking and dancing in the kitchen
Avatar 8:07pm JakeGould:

Jews, soul music and Brooklyn are all respectable… Happy Shabbos to you Dave Conehead!
Avatar 8:07pm Kris Holmes:

I'm baking a lasagna
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

Garfield would approve
Avatar 8:10pm JakeGould:

Garfield has nothing to complain about this Monday… Except for all those that died to give that cat the freedom to be a fatso.
Avatar 8:10pm Little Danny:

Ooo I know a "Trouble" song that I hope gets played.
Avatar 8:10pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Hiya, folks!! It's gotten harder for me to type during show!
  8:10pm JtotheK:

Hiya everyone! Lasagna sounds good. I will be eating tacos in a little while. With a Sierra Nevada pale ale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm radioronan:

Slicing up these onions sure makes me look like I got trouble..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm ultradamno:

A troubled set for World Goth Day?

Dean Chalkley?

  8:15pm Ari:

I'm sensing a theme here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Becky:

Damn! I missed Truble!
Avatar 8:15pm JakeGould:

Hmmm… I sense a pattern here…
  8:17pm Dave Conehead:

Thanks @jakegould
I’m third generation NY heeb w deep roots in bklyn and rockaway. My dad was a music encyclopedia for 50’s rock n roll and it drives me nuts not being able to ask him if he knows these tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

He’s a British Photographer/Filmmaker/DJ. I hadn’t heard of him either before I started listening to his show about a year ago.
Avatar 8:18pm JakeGould:

Oh my god you all, what if SOUL TRACKS was off by one letter? I’ll start: Treuble…

@Dave: Cool! First generation American born here. Dad like Chopin and my mom liked Harry Belefonte. Both liked John Lennon.
Avatar 8:20pm Little Danny:

Ah man this Melvin Davis is great!
  8:20pm Dave Conehead:

Normally i survive on a steady diet of death metal, vintage dub reggae, and psych prog rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm listener 126464:

Cheers Mr. Fine Wine, everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

You can't have GROWTH without GOTH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

If it's No News is it not Good News?
  8:23pm Dave Conehead:

Tukkitah tuk btw
Avatar 8:24pm JakeGould:

@ultradamno: Not true. We live in a vicious 24 hour news cycle and tuning out news is a great way to deal with the endless barrage of nonsense…

Which is all to say is if a certain NPR local station in NYC would make just a podcast of all of the whiner and pearl clutches phone calls they get I would love that!
Avatar 8:25pm JakeGould:

God I love those local ninnies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ultradamno:

I was just referring to the song, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Becky:

Professor Shake 'Em Up is a fabulous nom de guerre. Who is it really?
Avatar 8:27pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I don't know!! Not much info. Wonder what he's a professor of??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Tommy in Neversink:

90.1 just went down
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm radioronan:

Oh the drum track on this Little Irvin.
Avatar 8:31pm Kris Holmes:

maybe my fave koko 45
Avatar 8:31pm Little Danny:

Did Ko Ko just ask about "haters"? I didn't think that was a term back then.
Avatar 8:32pm Little Danny:

Huh. I guess she did. Lovers > Haters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Becky:

Professor of Seismology, if I had to guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

Avatar 8:35pm JakeGould:

Maybe he was an MFA at Bartending School?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Becky:

I held this record in my hands once. Still a little mad I didn't buy it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm ultradamno:

I wonder which Lancer was the senior bassologist.
  8:39pm Paul in the OC:

Oof--I think you just lost Mt Hope! Switching to the interwebs, where yer still roc'n cos I don't want to miss a GREAT show.
Avatar 8:39pm Mr. Fine Wine:

How I wish I could join the banter
Avatar 8:40pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha, out of all the Matvin Gaye 45s to choose you chose the exact same one I played on Tuesday on my show!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Is 90.1 still down for you, Tommy? I just checked my car radio and it seems OK.
Avatar 8:42pm Little Danny:

Wow does this Barbara Christian sound like a Detroit record, but apparently it's not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm ultradamno:

This one's making me think of Nowhere To Run (the Babs song)
Avatar 8:43pm Mr. Fine Wine:

So many labels tried to cash in on that Detroit magic!
Avatar 8:43pm Billy Jam:

lovin' every song - as per usual - thanks Mr Fine Wine
Avatar 8:43pm Little Danny:

I know! They didn't always do it so convincingly, though.
Avatar 8:44pm Little Danny:

Killer set btw
Avatar 8:45pm JakeGould:

@LittleDanny: Or competently I’d say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm -Ken:

Is audio back, on 90.1 fm?
  8:47pm CC:

Oh man!!!...here is where I wanna be!!!
Avatar 8:48pm Mike & Dusty:

you can’t say this isn’t the greatest song ever, Sweet and Innocent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm ultradamno:

It was a standout of the show so far.
  8:54pm CC:

The Beatles were always supposing they were Smokey Robinson!!!
Avatar 8:55pm Little Danny:

Dang this is some wicked guitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks MFW. Another great start to the weekend courtesy of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Uncle Michael:

(late to the party)
  8:56pm JtotheK:

Enjoyed the show - thanks Mr Fine Wine. Cheers everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm ultradamno:

I think juicing skunks is how the pandemic started.
Avatar 8:57pm Little Danny:

These Ed Bland arrangements always get me jumpy
  8:58pm CC:

I always like holding my breath when I walk by...fine show!!!
Avatar 8:59pm Little Danny:

Thanks MFW, superb show tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm radioronan:
