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.

good morning annie! good morning all yee listeners far and wide
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:07am Parq:

Looking forward to meeting Miss Kalman. When my (now college age) daughter was little, one of our family's favorite read-aloud books was "Hey Willy, See the Pyramids". If you're not familiar with it, I suggest you remedy that.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:10am pierre:

Bonjour Trouble !

We were hustlin' with Marty Mc Sorley, now we are just simply enjoying good times with your compagny.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:13am trouble:

bonjour pierre and yes parq we have almost the entire maira catalog at out house: all fab!
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:14am Sam:

1970's The Rubber Band Man helps The Godfather of Soul elevate Funk to an art form.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:19am listener mark:

George Washington's rules of civilty and decent behavior in company and conversation.
Rule 1. Every action done in company ought to be with some sign of respect to those that are present.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:20am listener mark:

Rule 100. Cleanse not your teeth with the tablecloth.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:21am Benno:

That's it. Time to go and buy some Joe Bataan.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:22am Parq:

I've loved most of Miss Kalman books and liked the rest, both the for-children catalog and the NY Times stuff, but "Willie" is her classic, her "One Fish Two Fish", a perfect blend of nonsense and style.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:22am dc pat fc:

Rule 537. Take not out your teeth and set them on the table while chugging the grog.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:23am dc pat fc:

Parq, trouble: we don't have that one. I'll have to get it before the kids grow up...
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:26am ffrr:

Good morning Trouble. Post up the 'Now Playing...' for us. Thanks
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:27am trouble:

  Tue. 4/12/11 9:30am pierre:

it's a nice thought from Keren Ann to create an anthem for you.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:31am annita:

'Good-afternoon' from greece. Although in another part of the hemisphere, but close to nature and birds.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:41am trouble:

good afternoon annita, and STU! welcome...yes pierre that was very nice of keren ann wasn't it? elle est tres gentil
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:43am listener mark:

"And the Pursuit of Happiness" by Maira Kalman. An insightful book about the people and history of the United States. Completely full of colorful drawings. Many of them pie and cake related.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:43am Jennique:

Good morning Trouble! Looking forward to yer chat with Maira.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:44am pierre:

that's what it seems, when i heard her on interviews anyway

as fot that Zydeco > loving it Amede Ardoin, Clifton Chenier that's something.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:45am Bad Ronald:

Good morning everyone. I love this Cale tune!!!
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:46am Bad Ronald:

i believe the album title is "Paris 1919". Just sayin...
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:47am postmanpaul (":

hi trouble and listeners, lovely spring day here in the uk. and if i'm not mistaken, that rubber band looks suspiciously like the property of royal mail ltd!... before i became an employee of her majesties postal service, bundles of mail were quaintly tied up with royal mail string. the rubber band is perhaps the most welcome of the company's many new 'modernising' practices. lovely tunes as use' btw.
  Tue. 4/12/11 9:55am mike g:

from the son of a U.S. postal service deliverer, thanks for the lesson, postmanpaul! many a rubberband in our house growing up.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:01am Handsome Harry:

Great overtone singing....or whatever one would call that.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:03am hamburger / london:

afternoon all! (hey wasn't trouble sneaking into the studio during Dusty's fill-in show and doing checkin' out some NSFW sites? (according to Ken)) :)
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:09am hamburger / london:

Trouble has the best chuckle
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:10am postmanpaul (":

love mairas illustrations.. reminds me of chloe cheese's beautiful work.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:11am BDR:

God no, I'm begging you, DON'T PLAY HALLELUJAH!
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:12am BDR:

Gah. Kill me.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:13am Sully:

Of all the Leonard Cohen songs to choose from.... :(
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:13am hamburger / london:

I knew someone would hate this :D
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:13am bev:

I have never heard hallelujah and I am liking it.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:15am pierre:

Remind me of the sex scene in Watchmen.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:16am Parq:

Hmm., I wondered when I signed on how people would be reacting to "Halej". I see we're all over the place on it.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:17am Azam:

Beats Russ Abott though...
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:19am listener mark:

Hallelujah is an ancient word from Sumer.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:22am Parq:

Guys go through that "I think I can write poetry" phase too. I did, and so did several friends.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:25am ?:

Enjoying this interview, Trouble. Just looked on Maira's site and like the watches she did.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:25am listener mark:

Most guy poems are about beer and,... other things.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:27am Adrian in London:

Oh, I seem to have turned into a question mark in my last post. Better than an asterisk or an ellipse, I suppose.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:31am Jennique:

Speaking of illustration, I just made my very first web site ever of my art and would love to share it with everyone (shameless self promotion)

  Tue. 4/12/11 10:34am Adrian in London:

Nice stuff Jennique.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:34am postmanpaul (":

my daughter is in toronto for another month working on her set design for edith nesbits 'the railway children'. any tips for where she could be enjoying herself in her spare time, anyone?
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:35am Parq:

You realize, of course, you're giving Rex the creeps.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:36am hamburger / london:

very cool Jennique!
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:37am annie:

  Tue. 4/12/11 10:42am annie:

Thank you for nice song.
  Tue. 4/12/11 10:59am postmanpaul (":

redarding my last post...are there no toronto savvy listeners out there?!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:01am Adrian in London:

Paul, if she goes to vancouver I can help out… and pick up that elastic band!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:05am BSI:

Alas, not I.... TOMATO savvy, perhaps. But not Toronto.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:07am ?:

i'm in toronto. what do you want to know?
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:08am glenn:

that was me.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:18am Emily:

  Tue. 4/12/11 11:19am hamburger / london:

"stay, stay with me~ not with him~" :)
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:21am listener mark:

Thank you trouble for making today's show, a good memory to keep.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:24am postmanpaul (":

hi glenn - i was wandering where the really interesting eating/drinking/cultural/ places are! thanks adrian in london - consider it done!
bsi - to may toes to you!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:27am vanessawithoutgerman:

one of the most amazing things about music is how universal it is...i feel like diego is singing exactly what i'm feeling at this very moment. thank you trouble, and thank you diego.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:27am hamburger / london:

postmanpaul: tripadvisor has some ideas , and the travel section of NY times too, if you haven't been already...
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:28am Carmichael:

Hi Trouble and people. Just getting here ...
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:28am Irene:

What a lovely set, Trouble! Glad I was able to hear it. Must check out the new album!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:29am Adrian in London:

And check out http://www.blogto.com/ Paul
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:36am dc pat fc:

the bass player for wooden shjips has the most boring job on earth..
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:40am postmanpaul (":

@ hamburger / london - yeah, i'm sure she has been introduced to toronto by the co. and has done her homework. I guess i feel i should help, still!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:44am glenn:

the best sources for that info will be either now or eye magazines. i can answer pretty much any specific question you've got, as long as it's not too demographically skewed, by which i mean don't ask me where the cool kids hang out, 'cause i just don't know anymore.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:50am postmanpaul (":

thanks glenn for those mag tips, i understand! i have no idea where they hang out in london, either. thank goodness.
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:54am Jennique:

Trouble - thank you for a truly inspirational show!
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:57am Marty:

thanks! jennique i can't wait to get off air and check out your site, too crazy here to do much else than dj
  Tue. 4/12/11 11:58am Ike:

Enjoyed it Trouble. And hey! Looks like Tony Coulter is up next on the Give the Drummer stream! Hooray!
  Tue. 4/12/11 12:00pm The Stinky Whistler:

Hello there, Trouble. I've been enjoying your archived shows for a little while now. I dig your taste.
  Tue. 4/12/11 12:00pm glenn:
