Got the HTRG on in the backyard at Freddy's on the speaker.

@Mr. Fine Wine: I see what you did there.
  8:05pm P-90:

Hi Ho, Beckarino!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Becky:

Yay, Freddy's! Thanks, Ian! I miss having a drink there!

In distinguished company on this board tonight I see.
  8:06pm Colleen:

I've been enjoying this show so much Becky... This totally is my Dad!... well... in a Merl Haggard way... not that my Moms a drunken waitress!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Gaylord Fields:

Becky, I'm looking forward to next week's hourlong musical tribute to teetotalers.
  8:06pm Colleen:

That I was aware of...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Oh, I didn't do much, Gaylord!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm ultradamno:

He's starting to undercut his regretful sentiment.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@MFW: Becky set you up, and you knocked it back.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Handy Haversack:

*Two* songs about drinking?! That *has* to empty the well!

Hey, ultradamno!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm ultradamno:

Hiya Handy!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, yes. Kate has played at Freddy's several times. Love that place. Sigh.

Becky, another band that has played there that you might like a lot is Big High Hills --digital album free on Bandcamp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Becky:

The expression "gettin' tight" has gone out of favor, it seems.
Avatar 8:10pm Miles:

It was this "Hangovers" LP that introduced me to Jean Sheppard . it seemed like a musical revelation to me
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Handy Haversack:

It's always a Chandler novel someplace ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm mariano:

Yeah, "gettin' tight," and also using "stoned" to mean drunk.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:11pm ultradamno:

Along with the variant 'tight as a tick'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Becky:

Jean Shepard was one of the all-time greats. I could listen to her forever.
  8:14pm JakeGould:

Oh Becky! What a crap day and week it has been for me personally and the world. Thank you for sharing this audio drink. *clink*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Becky:

Sorry to hear that, JG. Hope this can be a small salvo.
  8:15pm mr_donutsu:

Stompin Tom!!!
  8:17pm mr_donutsu:

He brought a board with him on stage as to not wear a whole in it - with his trademark heel stomp.
  8:17pm JakeGould:

Indeed it is as I stare at the moon, Jupiter (to the left) and Saturn (further to the left and down). To this music and the stars!
  8:21pm McGroovey:

Man. Good thing I didn't have any sharp tools or I wasn't on a high ledge during that Wanda Jackson song, or I might not have been able to type this comment. Kinda sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Scott Williams:

Dammit, almost 5 hours til shift change and I can toss one back with y'all
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Love that expression, "get drunk and be somebody." Really sums up a certain phenomenon quite eloquently.
  8:23pm johnzor:

that's it Im done... my demons won. gonna drown my sorrow in ice cream
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm ultradamno:

'I'm for everything that's wet'

That is one highly quotable song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Doug in JC:

@Handy "eating while we listen ... " <<< wrong choice buddy
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Handy Haversack:

I have more demons where that came from.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Handy Haversack:

Don't worry, Doug! Swiftly corrected!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Doug in JC:

Cheers!
  8:25pm JakeGould:

Getting drunk and being somebody is really some puritanical thinking right there. Enjoy yourself without a drink! Be amazing with a few drinks!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

Yes!

A good dad would take his kids with him to the tavern.
Avatar 8:34pm slugluv1313:

hi Pauly!

now i wanna be getting liquored up with my Grandma :)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Handy Haversack:

Kate notes that it's usually in the second verse that these songs take an even darker turn.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Pauly from Clifton:

mr_donutsu...my Dad would! The owner would set me up with pork rinds and a Pepsi! Ah, the good old days!
Avatar 8:36pm slugluv1313:

@ mr_donutsu -- oh i know soooo many who grew up in families where the parents would send the kids to the tavern next door, down the street, etc. for *whatever*
  8:37pm JakeGould:

@MrFineWine: Crap day. Crap week. This show is good. Yours too!
Avatar 8:37pm Sketch:

I'm drinking a cape may brewing city to shore iipa and making some dank fucking pork chops and baked potatoes
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Pauly from Clifton:

slugluv, Alls well, thanks! I hear ya! Grandparents were always the best.
  8:37pm mr_donutsu:

Pork Rinds and brined sausages FTW!!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Mr. Fine Wine:

May things improve, JakeGould!
Avatar 8:38pm Sketch:

I've also got a fat spliff for after dinner and my wife's doing her hair
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Doug in JC:

@Sketch I had a city to shore with dinner!

  8:39pm JakeGould:

Indeed! Hope you are doing good too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Becky:

Are dank fucking pork chops good or bad? I'm not good with new adjectives.
Avatar 8:39pm slugluv1313:

@ JakeGould -- sending positive vibes
(WITHOUT the "New Age" barf element)
  8:40pm JakeGould:

Dan Fuh King’s pork chops are amazing. Tell him
“That Jew Jake” sent you.
  8:41pm mr_donutsu:

Oh man, this one or his version of Little Old Wine Drinker Me?
Avatar 8:41pm Sketch:

Dank as fuck is good as fuck
Avatar 8:41pm Dave the Spazz:

Fake Dean !
Avatar 8:42pm Sketch:

I go straight to the butcher and I say give me your dankest meat for my coffee grind rub
Avatar 8:42pm Sketch:

There's nothing like meat on a cast iron grill and sad drunk country
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Fake Deano doing Deano faking drunk
  8:43pm Ian:

hi Becky can you do a Freddy's shout out so I can impress my friends lol thanks.
Avatar 8:43pm Sketch:

Becky I'm friends with Rata so you know I take my food seriously
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Handy Haversack:

Whoa, JLW, you are taking dark turns.
  8:43pm JakeGould:

I don’t thing “dank” should be used to describe food or drink. That’s nasty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Ha!!! @Sketch I miss Rata. is sucks
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Is sucks indeed!
Avatar 8:45pm slugluv1313:

awww man just remembered The Top O'The Hill Tavern -- in Bridgewater, NJ when i was in high school -- everyone went there b/c it was like the ONE place that did not card anyone (EXCEPT me! i was 18, and the ONLY one in my group who was legal) (yeah the drinking age was 18 back then) -- total honky tonk vibe, i still remember the band, complete with red and gold spangled outfits, huge cowboy hats, etc.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Handy Haversack:

Stop me if you've heard this one: A bunch of drunk, crying listeners stumble into EFD's disco dance party ...

I keep reading out the title and saying, "This one might be positive!" And Kate keeps pointing out the moment when I become quite wrong.

Well, more wine for me!
Avatar 8:47pm Sketch:

Is very sucks
  8:47pm JakeGould:

Shout out to all the drunks sitting in makeshift plywood boxes sitting in parking spaces all over NYC. Getting drunk while getting bus fumes in the face. Risking a car accident knocking them — and the box — to the curb.
Avatar 8:48pm Sketch:

The show is great as always! Loving it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Becky:

Wow JG that lightened the mood
  8:49pm JakeGould:

Hey! I respect the reality.
  8:49pm JakeGould:

I hope they make the best of it. Genuinely. I mean this is reality now.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Pauly from Clifton:

@slugluv, that tavern sounds cool! I can't believe there were (are?) places like that in Central Jersey,
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Handy Haversack:

Oh no! Make time stretch. If only there were some sort of wonder drug that promises the world and bring us all of that and more ...

Well, cheers, Becky and all! The cause of and solution to.

Thanks, Becky, Scott, WFMU!
  8:52pm JakeGould:

Now that is nice, Jason! Thank you! Here’s a drink! I will step back six feet and sanitize my hands and put my mask back on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Jason from Houston:

Ahhh! Thank you, Jake. Cheers to you.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm ultradamno:

Frusterated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Jason from Houston:

I tied the garbage/recycling bins to the fence and brought in my plants and brooms. Time for a drink.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Handy Haversack:

Batten down, Jason -- and good luck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Becky:

God, Webb Pierce is good.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, yeah.
Avatar 8:59pm slugluv1313:

@ Pauly -- Top Of The Hill is still there!
still with live music (although does not look like the same type i experienced when i was a teenager) -- but family owned for decades! Bridgewater is WAY different from when i grew up in the area, so i am glad they are still there :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Jason from Houston:

Thank you. I feel okay about where I am just southwest of downtown. I worry about Beaumont to Lake Charles. :(((((
  8:59pm BH:

Having listened to some songs from a Webb Pierce/Willie Nelson duet album makes me think that "In the Jailhouse Now" is a better duet song than "There Stands the Glass"
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm ultradamno:

I think it's in the book Lawless that it's said "moonshine" is something only northerners say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Jason from Houston:

GAH. THIS IS THE SONG.

Hell of a last shot, Becky. Be well, all!
