@K8 this station in general has kept us all very sane under trying conditions, and the accu has been a balm too

Richard and band are gyrating.
Avatar 6:30pm K8:

@Jnorton Absolutely! Yay WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Therese:

@Stillwell- thank for using the proper accent marks, which I never ever use, even though they are on my birth certificate and thus legally part of name.
  6:30pm Andres:

I was on the same flight as The Ramones were from Sao Paolo to Santiago. A couple of them were seated behind me. By way of greeting I then mistook Johnny for Marky. They do not look alike but for the jacket. Anyway, Johnny was cool about it. Had a conversation with him on the shuttle from the plane to the terminal. Did not get a chance to catch their show.
  6:32pm kpx:

as usual I'm on the outside looking in. or maybe I'm just missing something. but I'm having trouble understanding why K8 is a star. or am I asking a stupid question.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Therese:

@kpx: Everybody is a star, as Sly Sone said. But in this specific case, I played a song earlier in the show by @K8 and @Handy's band, Creek and Kills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Stillwell Coney Islander:

my mother in law's name was Thérèse :-))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Handy Haversack:

I should make clear that I have no musical ability whatsoever and the band is Kate's! With her amazing partners Erin and Marc. I'm just the lumpen mass enjoying reflected glory.
Avatar 6:40pm K8:

So, I feel like I should really purchase this "Going to Georgia" record...

My anthem…
<holds lighter aloft>
Avatar 7:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

NickDrake - photographic negative of Robert Johnson. More a Spirit than a historical man. Disturbed disturbing pure & tragic comforting Essence. Maybe Art is better than Life - to make an immaterial meal out of Sorrow - without Strife...
Avatar 7:36pm northguineahills:

@Handy: It's a link to a clip from Futurama. [Fry} "wow I heard how did that thing about that thing" [Zap Brattigan] "Yes, that was genius of the plan. I sent wave after wave after the killbots until they reached their kill limit. Now, a toast from the men [voices from the crowd} "*cough* silence" [one voice shouting] "you suck!"

hey adam... i forgot i wasn't on twitter for a minute when i saw your name; yeah nick drake, this song will definitely make me cry if i let it
Avatar 7:36pm kmharan:

I don't think so Therese....unless....Chicago many moons ago...And I would have sought you out as a friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm adamdoesit:

Hey steveo! …or should I say, eveostay? It's funny, I was just asking a mutual twitter and wfmu friend of ours how you knew one another.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Therese:

@kmharan- Nope, I grew up in New Jersey, but I knew a K. Haran, so I thought I should ask.
  7:39pm Andres:

I knew Dionne Warwick as the host of Solid Gold before discovering vinyl bins years later.
