Hi, Therese and community. The equinox is this week, so this was the last weekend of sum-sum-summertime, as Bill Kelly would have pointed out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Therese:

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi Therese! There is a blurb in the current New Yorker about your alma mater Action Park, and the documentary it inspired - Class Action Park. How exciting! Rarely do I care about the supposed wonderful new world of television, but this I got to see!
  6:15pm kpx:

greetings Therese from nowheresville. @Chresti: rub a dub dub, don't forget to get behind the ears. @F L Phillip: if you shoot me some cheddar I'll rat you out to Suzy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Therese:

@Franco Twinkie- I had a few issues with the documentary, but I did enjoy it.
  6:16pm Jett:

Hope you're doing great, @Therese. All is fine 'round here, did it a little record digging in Brooklyn today, got some nice things.
Avatar 6:17pm Joe B:

wow, world premiere of 50 ft furies? sounding good
  6:17pm Jett:

@wfmu listener Phillip I'm telling! PHILLIP HAS A CRUSH!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Therese:

Jersey City's own!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Franco Twinkie:

Insiders always do, Therese. But for the rest of us who never experienced the horror and hilarity first hand, this'll have to do.
  6:20pm kpx:

@DrKen f MrHyde p: on what day and exact time will the equinox occur.
Avatar 6:22pm Roberto:

There's something about Suzy.
  6:22pm wfmu listener phillip:

ohhh noo. did I really say aloud I have a huge crush on suzy hotrod. shhhhh. please keep it a secret:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm DonJuanTijuana:

Hi Therese! Happy Sunday!

@W L Phillip: it's too late we're all going to make like pigs and canaries. we're going to squeal and sing.

The Flying Picketts did a nice acapella cover of Yazoo's "Only You"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm JohnEBGood:

Hey Therese, We all know the Benadryl helps. But don't DJ and drive : )
  6:35pm kpx:

I was lucky enough not to have gone to that nightmare of a class action park. but it sounds like it would make a great horror flick.
  6:36pm Therese:

Just try to relax at home and don't stretch yourself thin. I have faith that you'll be fine. Are you sure that it's not just allergies?
  6:37pm Jett:

Oops, I did it again @Therese
  6:37pm Dan from Delco:

This yo la Tengo hits the spot. Listening in my backyard in PA tying up fallen branches.

I get depressed about summer ending but that last segue made me feel better about it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Therese:

Whoa, is this the @Therese I ran into on the street the other day? Or ANOTHER THERESE ENTIRELY?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Therese:

@Joe B- thank you! I felt good pretty good about that one
  6:39pm Jett:

It's me making the same mistake. @Therese
  6:39pm Jett:

Running into yourself!
Avatar 6:39pm Joe B:

you should! (no disrespect to previous or future segues)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Therese:

None taken!
  6:40pm Jett:

Love this Walker stuff!!!
Avatar 6:40pm Joe B:

Would love to run into either Therese on the street one of these days! Miss both!
  6:40pm Jett:

You really rock!!!
  6:41pm phat:

I keep meaning to explore The Walker Brothers. I love this.
  6:41pm Jett:

Imagine that, more Therese's

@Joe and right after I saw Therese, I saw Neil K! Gotta come back downtown, my friend!
  6:42pm Jett:

@phat There are 2 incarnations of Scott Walker/Walker Brothers, the second incarnation makes Bowie seem like top 40.
Avatar 6:44pm Joe B:

damn, I gotta do ... something!

also digging this Dent May as well
  6:44pm phat:

@Jett oh, I've listened to the later Scott Walker. I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Therese:

@Joe it almost felt like normal life for a minute, except for the masks and stuff.
  6:46pm Jett:

@phat "The Cockfighter" by Scott Walker is a masterpiece.
  6:47pm kpx:

I'm a little confused, how many Therese's there are. three or four?. I lost count.
  6:49pm Jett:

I wish there were Therese's for every day of the week on this station, we need her as often as we get Clay.
  6:50pm phat:

@Jett I'm partial to The Drift, but that's the first of his I heard.
  6:50pm Jett:

...and Therese isn't even my favorite WFMU deejay.
  6:51pm Jett:

@phat Great one!
  6:53pm Jett:

I hear that Feargal Sharkey tone in Eleanor's voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm efd:

sitting here listening while noodling on the computer and thinking "this song sounds REALLY familiar!" and I go to the playlist to see what it is and it's a song I just played a few days ago! My poor addled brain! Awesome show, Therese!
  6:58pm kpx:

I really don't have a favorite. just so long there's an adequate DJ at the controls. speaking of which I meant to Tune in on the last show to see who the mystery guess DJ was. can anyone tell me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Therese:

I only borrow from the best, @EFD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm efd:

ooh, that is a GREAT idea! Skeleton party!
  7:00pm ?:

They know how, but not what fer
  7:01pm Jett:

@efd Don't feel so bad, I'm getting like that also, Evan. My old term memory is outstanding but my new term is having issues.
Avatar 7:01pm PapaJoeToronto:

  7:02pm Jett:

I hope I didn't scare Phillip away. I know a secret about him.
  7:05pm BH:

my pure guess would be "Cap-leeze" with the second half rhyming with "niece". But that's probably wrong.
  7:07pm Jett:

Just like Whyte Boots of "Nightmare" fame with Lori Burton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Therese:

@BH you'll have to tune in Saturday to find out!
  7:09pm kpx:

Phillip just might be having a minor anxiety attack. if that's the case Phillip then don't worry, I'll make like a clam instead of one of the other fore mentioned animals. of course I can't speak for anyone else.
  7:11pm Jett:

kpx Doesn't speak for me.
  7:17pm goes211:

Sounding great Therese! Glad to have the FMU be a constant companion.
  7:18pm kpx:

But Jett, what if you knew he was out on the ledge!
  7:19pm Jett:

Don't tempt me, @kpx
Avatar 7:20pm Joe B:

was seeing REM at the Felt Forum in 1986, and the guy from The Clique came out to sing this with them. I think that's when I realized it was a cover!
  7:21pm Jett:

Sounds pretty cool. @Joe B

The Felt Forum!
Avatar 7:22pm herb.nyc:

Maybe 8th grade / 1972, friends mom's bf took us to godspell on bway. I barely remember it, but I liked. And then a cab ride bk to sheepshead bay, ooh. I miss theaTAH. And music. -- oh, I saw R.E.M. at Felt Forest too.
  7:24pm Jett:

One good turn deserves another, The Clique covered Tommy James and the Shondells' "Sugar On Sunday"
  7:25pm kpx:

I don't think we have nothing to worry about, I don't believe he'll do anything that drastic. he probably just had to step out real quick to do something.
  7:27pm Jett:

I just want to get the guy hooked up!!!
  7:30pm kpx:

I think that'd be great also. but he seems to be shy and unsure of himself. I think he needs work on his self esteem.

Life's Rich Pageant.
  7:33pm Jett:

He's a very nice guy. He might just need this kind of stimulation in his life. I can be shy at times also. Sometimes you gotta get a little bolder, or get a friend to get bolder for you

too late is what I meant. And punctuation and such have no power in the text universe
  7:35pm Joyofit:

therese- so glad to finally hear your show, love everything I heard. Helps with the stress of learning that I have 278 high school students. Whoohoo

...and what Matt said!
  7:41pm mojo61:

Therese you never cease too rock my world. Especially when you push into third gear as the show progresses. Greetings from Chicago where cannabis is legal for folks who simply enjoy it! And there exist 2 seasons: Winter and August. Listening to you reminds me of my NYC home that I miss so much and where I listened to WFMU when I had to stick an antenna out the window to pull it in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm adamdoesit:

Still waiting for that spy-ska movie. Till then, this’ll do. Thanks, Therese!

Thanks kpx, for once I remembered @6:15
  7:42pm mojo61:

Oh and the legal cannabis industry is single handedly saving Illinois farmers. And the whole damn state. :)
