Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/19/09 2:02am Betsy:

Hi!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:02am Joe:

Well... aren't you organized! Cool playlist - good luck and welcome!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:04am Betsy:

Hey Joe! Thanks.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:10am Dan:

Just tuned in. Late. Damn. I'll play the whole thing back out of archives later. Totally sweet. It's hot as hell in Vietnam.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:11am Betsy:

Welcome Dan! Are you really in da 'Nam?
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:12am Dan:

Indeed. When did this show start?
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:13am Joe:

... are you a Lieutenant?
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:16am Betsy:

Hi, it just started a few minutes ago.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:17am Dan:

I just figured that out. Far out. We're live!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:20am Derek Dub:

Hi Betsy, this is very good
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:22am Betsy:

Hey thanks Derek!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:22am tullius:

hi betsy-

what's the very cool sweet fuzzy tune before Better Go Home Now?
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:24am Betsy:

Zambian group called Amanaz - that recording was originally from 1975. Reissue was on a German label called Shadoks.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:26am tullius:

Thanks. Out of order with the pl, then? Very cool stuff nonetheless..
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:30am Derek Dub:

Betsy, turn up your mike
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:31am tullius:

Or key down the background a bit..
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:32am Rick:

Hey, great songs. You should pod down that bed music a little - having trouble hearing you.

Is it 'pod' or 'pot'?

You rock
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:33am Betsy:

Aaahhh! I just talked! Ok thanks for the notes about the bed music being too loud.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:35am Rick:

'pod' or 'pot', Betsy?
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:38am Betsy:

Oh hey Tullius, yeah the tune before Bessie Banks was by a group from Boston called "Baab Ceegur". They are friends and I don't think they've put any recordings out.
Rick: I say music "bed" but I would also go with pod OR pot! Excellent choices all.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:41am Rick:

I hear FMU dj's talking about 'podding' up/down various things. Can never tell if they're saying 'pod' or 'pot'. Anybody on the board know the answer to this?

Anyway, this is a great show. Instant fan, Betsy. Even your name is cool.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:41am Betsy:

Hey thanks Rick!

Tullius: check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XUgPoNmyJU
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:44am Derek Dub:

not sure , ...a pan pot is a knob, as in knob twiddler , so maybe pot? either way Betsy your on it
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:45am tullius:

ha, great Tubin' Betsy, thanks. Now I won't forget that song.

Also, I think it's "pad"...
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:47am Rick:

Thanks for that - bet you're right, Derek.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:49am Art Lessing (Dan):

this set has made my whole night!!!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:50am Betsy:

Oh man, that's so nice to hear! Muchos thank ya.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:52am Rick:

I second Art - insomnia has never sounded so good.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:52am Scott:

hey! nice job. (I sent you an email.)
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:53am Art Lessing (Dan):

serious
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:53am Derek Dub:

Rick , I think tullius has it, Betsy does for sure !
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:54am Betsy:

Got it, Scott. THANKS.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:55am Joe:

This is a great fill-in. Like, Steve Krinsky good.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:56am Joe:

With less Cumbia, of course.
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:57am Betsy:

Who's Steve Krinsky? Also thank you!!!
  Thu. 2/19/09 2:58am Rick:

Wait, is this a fill-in show? If so, Betsy needs her own show. Seriously, this is good stuff. Thanks, Betsy.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:00am Rick:

Krinsky playlists:
http://wfmu.org/playlists/SK
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:00am Joe:

Steve Krinsky is the king of the fill-ins! Also, he's a guy whose name is fun to say.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:00am Joe:

Betsy Nichols is a pretty fun name to say too, don't get me wrong.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:01am Betsy:

Yes I am filling in for Night People. I'll check out Krinsky's playlists
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:05am Rick:

Love the show, Betsy. Please fill in more - or get your own show.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:07am DErek Dub:

perfect , no need for pod/pot/padding!
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:07am Rick:

The Bamboo dude in the hat looks like he's trying to be Dickie Betts, circa 1969.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:08am Rick:

Wait, is he Dickie Betts?
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:09am Derek Dub:

he wishes
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:10am Betsy:

Ha! I love that album, and the cover photo cracks me up EVERY time I see it.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:10am Rick:

Man, that's some shot of Cat Stevens. Seriously, Cat. Put that leg down.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:12am Rick:

Who knew Cat had such a huge box?
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:12am lisa p.:

hi betsy! color me smitten <333
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:13am Betsy:

Hi Lisa! Thanks and welcome.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:16am Betsy:

Yeah, Cat really makes that peace sign count.

The YouTube link I put next to this track (First Aid Kit) is a better recording than the one I just played...
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:19am Rick:

Baab Ceegur/Buddy Holly/Monk/Ann Coulter Stammering/First Aid Kit/Charlie Rich. This is flat-out inspired. Betsy, are you gunning for your own show at FMU? Seriously, you rock!
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:20am b.:

just got here and looking at some of the earlier songs i wish i had been here earlier
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:21am Betsy:

Hey thanks Rick! Yes I would love to have a show at some point. Right now I'm volunteering and learning about the station.

Hi b! Welcome.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:22am b.:

elizabeth cotten, charlie rich, busy doin nothin, very nice
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:23am Rick:

My next donation to FMU will include a request for Betsy Nichols to be given her own show. And my donations are HUGE! Well, not really huge, really. I'm no Lorrie from Miami. But I give. I do give.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:29am Betsy:

Ha! Well shucks, thanks. Nice to have moderately well-heeled listeners.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:30am tullius:

with Dolly, that sounds like Doc Watson a bit on the acco, the accomp, the accompan... uh, the guitar.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:34am Betsy:

Oh I thought it was Dolly herself on the gee-tar! Not sure.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:35am tullius:

You might be right.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:36am ?:

Er, moderately in extremis.

Have to sleep, else work's gonna kick my ass tomorrow. Just want to say, this is epic radio - thanks for fun and great music. Clearly, you have several fans already. I'm one. Looking forwrad to hearing your shows in the future.

Keeping you on through the night. Here's to a Betsy Nichols show on FMU.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:38am Betsy:

Thank you mysterious question mark individual!!! Sleep tight.
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:41am Alex:

Choice cuts / thanks for the vibes
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:47am Betsy:

Hi Alex!
  Thu. 2/19/09 3:49am tullius:

wonder if Dan Auerbach listened to Hinton's tune before he wrote Heavy Soul..
  Thu. 2/19/09 4:42am mike tp:

good morning all hi betsy cant wait to listen to the show later today. great playlist. up my alley. off to the shower and work.
  Thu. 2/19/09 4:47am Betsy:

hey Mike, thanks! I hope you enjoy it later, good luck with work.
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:12am (mta) Tony:

Agreeing with everyone tonight who's spoken out about your great show, Betsy. One of the best I've heard in a while. Tuning in late (but actually only by a few minutes), I saw the entire playlist posted so I said to myself, "Oh man, this show's over; I wish I tuned-in sooner to catch it from the beginning..." then I noticed you were playing songs from the top of the list, SO MY WISH CAME TRUE IMMEDIATELY AFTER MAKING IT! I'll have to check the archives to see if you have previous shows for us. If so, I'll definitely check them out, too. You made a lot of folks happy this evening, Betsy. Much appreciated. Great taste.
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:16am Betsy:

Hey wow that's so nice, thanks Tonyyyyy!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:20am (mta) Tony:

I just bought that Raincoats CD only last week. What a coincidence. Like I said, you've got good taste. Tell me, Betsy, do you have archived shows available?
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:21am Betsy:

Hi, this is my first archived show (I did a one hour show in December but I don't know that it is archived). Yeah the Raincoats rule!
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:24am tombom:

http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/29626 here it is. cool show
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:24am hawkwind:

you did good
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:27am Betsy:

Thanks Hawkwind.I will give your regards to Spirit and Mountain! ;)
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:30am (mta) Tony:

You've gained a lot of new listeners tonight, Betsy. I'm happy for you. I'll be proud to say I was with you from the beginning (almost). Thanx tombom.
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:31am hawkiwnd:

usually it's bill kelly, but i'm doing a time course this evening. don't change. i have memorised all spirit and mountain? i can play it in my brain whenevr i need it
  Thu. 2/19/09 5:33am claire:

  Thu. 2/19/09 5:41am hawkwind:

  Thu. 2/19/09 5:44am Betsy:

Hi Mike, yeah I love Jim O'Rourke!

Good to see Legend (Mickey Jupp's band) is still being played. I played bass on two of Legend's singles and three ablums. (The latest was only released this year: Never too old to Rock.)
Cheers
John
