“Christine’s Refrigerator,” the title track to the John Margolis: Christine’s Refrigerator album, written and produced by John Margolis and Don Rosler, has had a good number of fervent fans over the near-decade since it was first released, including Jonathan Schwartz (and many of his listeners) on WNYC, NPR’s The Kitchen Sisters, Bob Telson, Hugh Prestwood, producer Alain Mallet and the late great Arif Mardin. Another passionate fan of the song happened to be a woman named Christine, that is, the remarkable and prolific singer-songwriter Christine Lavin, who has now brought “Christine’s Refrigerator” to a new dimension with her labor-of-love video. Within a week of releasing the video, “Christine’s Refrigerator” was featured in a wondrously witty article by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Jim Dwyer: “Taking Inspiration From Song and Pictures on the Refrigerator.
Lavin, Margolis, and Rosler are witnessing not only deeply emotional responses to the song and video, but perhaps the beginning of a new social phenomena of people connecting or reconnecting from examining their loved ones’ photographs or mementos on fridge doors all over the country. As one contributor to the video wrote:
