Be shaken. Be stirred. A whimsical wham-bam of exotic enchantments, sleazy oddities, pop fancies, and swingin’ slingers broadcast from Ridgewood, NYC’s very own Shangri-Lounge. Best served chilled, garnished with signature swizzle schtick.

Hey Ms La! Pretty cool that you've got your own theme.
Avatar 6:05pm

Yes, I'm into it! Josh is a super cool guy - and he was a member of the seminal indie/emo band The Anniversary!!
Avatar 6:08pm

He even made it perfectly jingle-tastic!

howdy mistah fabulous!

Oh, yes! Serge never gets old! And, despite the general subject manner, he manages to class things up!

only 2 days left of this rotten year! yay

I truly hope it's like flipping a switch! We'll see...!

If you have the Japanese title i can get the English for you. My partner is a Japanese translator.

Thanks, WR! If I can't figure it out, I will certainly come to you! Thanks for the kind offer.

Good evening, DJ shangri-lounge, Crew, full moon maniacs!
Avatar 6:43pm

Hey, Pauly! Thanks for tuning in!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm

I'm reading about song writer Cindy Walker, she wrote the Orbison song, Shahdaroba. Such a different title it sent me on a search. Don't yet have any clue about where the title came from but Cindy Walker had an amazing career. Bing Crosby to Bob Wills to Eddy Arnold to Ray Charles to Elvis Presley as well, of course, Roy Orbison, recorded her songs. That is just short list to highlight the range.
Avatar 6:52pm

Yes, I had been reading about her, too! She had also written his hit "Dream Baby"

Whassup Scott and Rich!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm

Just chilling with your smooth tunes and my dog. Beautiful summer's day here. I watched that brilliant moon setting at 4:30am. It now sits brightly above you folk I hear.
Avatar 7:13pm

That sounds amazing, Scott! I feel like most of my playlists must hold up pretty well on your end. More so than here in NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm

Hah! Yeah Shangri-la. But you guys need the warm rush and up-beats. More than us at the moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm

You do it well Shangri-la ☆
Avatar 7:16pm

Hahah, yes, true. I'm glad your dog digs the smooth tunes because my cat just keeps clawing my couch as it goes on, and making direct eye contact with me!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm

So it's being a cat then 😎
Avatar 7:18pm

Ha, yes. He totally is! I should have become a dog person. I missed out.
Avatar 7:20pm

Is it like going back to college? Can I still make it work?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm

I couldn't be anything else, Gus is my brother from another species. I fed a friend's cat for a week while she was at the beach. She's a beautiful creature, a bit dog like in nature. But still impenetrable emotionally.

Pauly from Clifton:

@Scott67, sounds like a nice morning your way! @DJShangri-La, one of my cats is lying on his back enjoying the cool sounds. The one who's more like a dog.
Avatar 7:24pm

I like to say that I prefer cats who are more like dogs and dogs that are more like cats, but I might just be full of it!
Avatar 7:25pm

My cat Otto is a good guy - means well. He's just a bit laissez faire.
Avatar 7:26pm

I need to create conflict and drama in my life though - thanks to the Covid shutdown. He provides some of that for me!! Ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm

A dog is your open university. They teach us so much, more than we teach them. We've had a bond for thousands of years, it's now I hate, intuitive communication between species. If you are prepared for the strong bond they will feel for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm

Hate??? I hate auto correct!! I wrote, innate.
Avatar 7:30pm

I've never really had a dog - perhaps when I leave NYC - the day will come! It's something I'd like to try! Perhaps I will find my own Gus! Everyone deserves a Gus, right? Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm

Hey Pauly, dog cats or cat dogs. It's often due to the owners approach to the animal. Nurture over nature. That's why there are no bad dogs, just lousy owners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm

Sure do Shangri-la! I'm lucky to have met him at 9 months old & offered to adopt him from his dying owner. That's 7 years ago now.
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm
Pauly from Clifton:

@Shangri-La, yes! Everyone deserves a Gus! Mine during university was a mutt named Spike. The smartest dog I ever knew. @Scott67, you are so right!
Avatar 7:36pm

Someday it will happen for me! The stars will align. I'm looking forward to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm

Pauly I had a Spike, he was a lovely fella, adopted from my ex's daughter. I have had 4 dogs through my life. Gus the 5th,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm

Shangri-la, all my dogs found me, I've never sought a dog, they just happen. Like life. 😊
Avatar 7:41pm

and that is the dogma, as laid out by Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm

Ha! I do sound like a Fidomentalist don't I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm

Dogpa, on this occasion 😉
Avatar 7:44pm

Hahaha, yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm

Loving your show as well as the banter by the way.
Avatar 7:51pm

Thank you, Scott! You are a most appreciated listener on every occasion! I'd put out the good silverware for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm

Pizza will be fine my friend.

Straight from the box is always best.

Can I get Anchovies?
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:56pm
Pauly from Clifton:

Thanks very much, shangri-lounge! Wishing all a happy and healthy 2021! Gus, keep an eye on Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm

Cheers Pauly, he will mate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm

Always does!
Avatar 7:57pm

Hahah, no anchovies here!! A very strict policy.
Avatar 7:58pm

Happy New Year, Pauly! And to all in the Shangri-Lounge, a good night!
