This evening DJ Darmok and myself, DJ Beer With Dinner, will return with yet another edition of SESAME STREET BANDAIDS, airing from 5:30-8PM EST on WMUA 91.1FM and streaming from

Nearly every week for the good part of 2010, a certain somebody has made an effort to check out the program and call/tweet/gchat in requests. Her choices revolve around modern and vintage Californian and psychedelic pop (as well as last week's "Return of the Mack" jammer) and they're never bad songs, so I figure hey why not have this gal let all you know why she picked these songs each week? This feature is well deserved - it's entirely possible she thinks about these requests harder than I think about the other 98% of my half of the show. Here's her lil intro to our new weekly featurette (her email to me copy and pasted) plus this week's request:

"Well, since this is my first post, I feel that I need to address it rather than just assume you know what the hell is going on cause that is just kinda rude. So, hi, I’m Marissa. Aside from blogging about myself, I am also a regular requester on Sesame Street Bandaids which brings us here today. I guess I was impressive enough to warrant a weekly column and I am very honored to be here! It feels a lot like getting invited into a club, which has never happened to me so actually I don’t know first hand but I’m guessing my heart would feel this warm & fuzzy. I did once start my own joke club in second grade but only first graders came so I had to call that shit quits. Wasn’t good for my personal brand, ya know?

This week, I decided to request something that really represented me and my lifestyle. I wanted something that not only reflected my personality but also my ideology. From wine for breakfast to the chorus that has become my life’s mantra (as well as a main argument for combating against asshole commenters, it’s like, dude, if my shit does not bring you pleasure by all means, go read something that makes
you happy, you self loathing little shit, AMIRITE OR AMIRITE?!), Donovan’s Museum fits that bill pretty damn well.

Museum is on the B-Side of 1967’s Mellow Yellow, which is by far the best Donovan album of all time in my opinion and I can see how a lot of people may assume that is because of the title track but the whole album is bombcom. I mean, I spent a lot of time getting stoned, skipping classes & listening to this bro’s entire discography so I mean, I’m kind of an expert. It’s like dude, Sunny South Kensington?

If you don’t have this album, first of all, get real & secondly, get it. There’s a Mellow Yellow + Wear Your Love Like Heaven like double disk CD so I’m sure you can download that 4 double the pleasure somewhere. Totally worth it.

Alright guys, nice meeting you & see you next Monday. Same time, same place like TGIFridays in the ‘90s. #mmmunclejesse "
