Options March 7, 2009: Marathon 2009 Week One with Dr Muse

Saturday 2am - 6am


Bill Mac's   And Now for My Final Song... And Now for My Final Song...   Soundtrack your own funeral!!! Play these songs of quiet strength and enduring beauty whilst you lie in repose and there won't be a dry eye in the house. Lou Reed, Hank Williams, Parliament, William Shatner, and Odetta are just a few of the mourners that stop by and pay their respects. This Premium is yours for a pledge level of $75 or more.

Fonotone Records: Frederick, Maryland (1956-1969) Fonotone Records: Frederick, Maryland (1956-1969)    We’re going Old-Timey with Jug bands, County Blues & Southern Gospel, and Fonotone (78 RPM only) Records… Joe Bussard is a collector of old-time American music. He swears off anything past the 30's. Over the years, he has amassed over 25,000 records. In 1956, Joe started a label from his parents basement, and called it Fonotone. He recorded himself, friends, and eventually a young John Fahey, who recorded some of his earliest music (and only vocals) with Joe under the pseudonym Blind Thomas. Mike Seeger recorded as Birmingham Bill... and that's just to name a few. In the basement, Joe had a mic, a reel-to-reel recorder, and a record cutter - essentially a studio and manufacturing facility for his label of 78s. The label lasted from 1956 until 1969, trying to preserve the old way and the old sound. The records didn’t go far beyond the Maryland border, and many to this day have never heard of Fonotone. Dust-To-Digital released this 5 CD box set in a cigar box full of photos, 160 page booklet, and a bottle-opener? A $50 pledge gets you in the running for this Grand Prize.

Bill Mac Adopt-A-DJ!   A big thanks to Benjamin Ellis for adopting yours truly.

That would be great, but I'm in Moscow, Russia. Maybe some other time I'll get back over to that part of the world and time it to coincide with a future event of the kind.
