A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 2/11/10 9:15am Parq:

Ah, the original "Sunny". Nice treat while girding up one's loins to face the outdoor weather.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:18am annie:

Good morning.
I'm laying back today on this clear, icy day in Mpls.

Please think good thoughts for my friend. His second surgery for tongue cancer didn't seem to work. He's going to Mayo next week.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:40am doron:

my kids' favorite song right here.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:40am Cecile:

And ask for an oral cancer screening at your dentist! It's extra, but worth it.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:42am dale:

i read about the west orange museum in the times. wanna go. i read in a biography that all he ate at the end of his life was apple pie and buttermilk - thought it contained all he needed for health. tesla would be a great read.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:43am trouble:

doron, well of course your lovely boys have fab taste!
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:50am Stuart Troutman:

So who WAS the bassist with Goldkette on that rendition of 'Dinah'?
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:51am Cecile:

hrm, I wonder if Lou Reed borrowed from a few of this for a few of his songs.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:54am texas scott:

i LOVE the O'jays!!!
WOOHOO!
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:56am Cecile:

Nice! I love Nellie.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:56am still b/p:

Yes, that sounded like a bowed bass for Dinah, and I've been asked just this morning to find a bow for a saw(!), so I need that ID and (candlestick) phone number, too.
  Thu. 2/11/10 9:59am Stuart Troutman:

The bassist was Steve Brown.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:01am gladys the dog:

  Thu. 2/11/10 10:12am trouble:

  Thu. 2/11/10 10:15am trouble:

  Thu. 2/11/10 10:20am JcityJensen:

This BlockHead Album is GREAT!
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:25am Cecile:

Fashion-lovers., designer Alexander McQueen was just found dead. Suicide.

F****!!!!!!
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:28am TC:

Cool, Timebox. Have you heard the Lucky Bishops version of this?
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:29am numbatwombat:

cecile - that is very sad news. he was brilliant.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:30am trouble:

no i haven't. i heard this song for the first time last nite
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:30am Cecile:

He was, numbat. It's dreadful. DREADFUL.

I might be getting drunk tonight.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:31am Rick Pickle:

Either this show is on fire or I am. Not sure which. Such is life.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:32am Cecile:

Thomas Edisons Racists Recordings:

http://lilmikesf.blogspot.com/2005/11/firefox-hot-bush-not-racist-wax.html
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:56am numbatwombat:

cecile - i must confess i have not followed fashion for some time now but once upon a time eagerly awaited the publication of vogue for the ads of course. this recent alexander mcqueen advertisement is rather haunting to begin with and is now my desktop: http://idiosyncraticfashion.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/alice-gibb-alexander-mcqueen.jpg
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:57am numbatwombat:

it is clearly fairy-tale oriented but also reminds me of dario argento's opera.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:58am Shana:

This cut is tight.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:58am dale:

@jensen - that's pretty crazy. especially since edison wanted to take the higher road and use his recordings to better the masses with opera and theater. he started getting pressure to go more populist a few years in because he was getting creamed by competitors.
  Thu. 2/11/10 10:59am Cecile:

numbat, that is eerily appropriate...
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:00am mb:

Yeah! My favorite part. Dub it up Trouble!
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:01am texas scott:

Employer sez "Go home at 11:00 c.s.t."

God,how I love the once every 10 year snow!
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:05am still b/p:

Awful hard to be unhappy during any version of this tune.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:08am Parq:

What was the original instrumental that the melody of "Same Girl" is taken from? I'm sort of thinking it was called "The Horse".
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:09am brian:

It's not snowing here in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia!
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:09am Cecile:

do not play Cat Stevens' version, though.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:09am Carmichael:

Good morning everyone.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:11am JcityJensen:

argeed Trouble! Whole hearty agreed!

i just google edison and that popped up in the top 3
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:14am Carmichael:

To be pedantic, Cat Stevens wrote 1st Cut. Everyone else does a "version" of it. personally, I like his a lot better than, say, Rod Stewart.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:16am librarian:

where have i been....my mornings are saved, love the playlist
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:17am Vito S. Brevis:

Trouble, you on FIRE today.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:19am Cecile:

Carm, yes. But I don't like Rod's either.

I think I just don't like that song. That could be it. The Koobas version is ok though.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:20am trouble:

why thank you vito s. brevis. AND not to brag but i am popular with librarians...
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:27am drewo:

Trouble - I saw Fela the Musical last night. It was great!
Just sayin' to you and your listeners. Check out the show and check out Fela's timeless music.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:29am Brian:

@" i am popular with librarians..."
I can vouch for that. Damn near cult status.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:33am JCityJensen:

something not racist :) = http://www.doorsixteen.com/2010/02/05/my-mouse-path/
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:34am Lblnc:

Oddly NH hasn't gotten a real storm since before the new year.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:34am Shana:

Trouble's popularity extends beyond librarians to fauxbrarians like me.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:35am seang:

listening in from the education library at BU
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:38am Parq:

I'm not a librarian, though people often assume I am, because my office is just off the library.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:38am jow:

Did anyone just notice when Trouble was speaking of the death of someone that the bird in the background did a sigh like whistle?
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:39am thecleef:

needs more reverb
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:43am miketp:

im in the library 4x a week. love yhe entire library system . get lots of goodies there
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:43am trouble:

BU? i am going to boston on saturday, what a coincidence
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:44am Fritz:

and I'm listening from the Museum of Zoology at the University of Michigan, so you're popular at both libraries and museums
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:46am Parq:

Miss T, saying that you're doing a great show is banal, because when are you ever doing anything less, but I'm saying it anyway.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:46am Brian:

@Fritz
I love that museum of Zoo.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:47am Shana:

Why, hello Fritz! I'm listening from the University of Michigan Library, so it looks like Trouble is especially popular at Ann Arbor's libraries & museums.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:49am listener mark:

Good morning Trouble. Good morning every body. Human and other mammals. But not the pigeons. Great show this morning. I've been on the road the last few Thursdays and listening in the car. Surprisingly the radio signal is quite clear up here in the southern tier of New York. Due to the higher elevations no doubt. Thanks again Trouble.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:49am trouble:

thank you parq! and thank you to all my favorite places: libraries and museums
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:51am Parq:

@seang, I have a dear young friend at BU now, but she is a computer sci major so I don't suppose she has any reason to come into the Ed library.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:53am Brian:

We're all figures in Trouble's diorama.
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:55am Parq:

Brian, that is a *great* image!
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:56am seang:

tell him/her we have free coffee and tea here--the only library that provides free beverages at BU
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:57am seang:

i meant just "her"
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:57am trouble:

i love the diorama idea! very visual, and HUGE if you think of all the places people are listening in from...
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:58am librarian:

uga in athens is happy to have discovered this "place"...time for lunch
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:58am still b/p:

parq @ 11:08 -- (am I) the same girl =
Soulful Strut, eh?
  Thu. 2/11/10 11:59am Charles Powne:

Mikado! I have this single. Wow, long time no hear such cute music
  Thu. 2/11/10 12:00pm Brian:

Fritz, can you set up a local instance? I'm kind of fond of the late Devonian as a backdrop ...
  Thu. 2/11/10 12:11pm Fritz:

Brian, we're going to have to be in a rather large and time-transcending diorama to capture all this diversity, it's going to require some imagination by the diorama artist
  Fri. 2/12/10 4:10pm Schminn:

Hi Trouble, What an exceptionally fine show. Thanks>}
