Hola Joe! Selda sounds a bit melancholic :(
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:09am GM:

Selda track was brilliant...
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:09am ami ad:

Hwy JoeMa.Turkish delight,when does the Buzuki kicks in?
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:10am Joe McG:

Hey, everybody! Turkish delight to start the night!
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:16am ami ad:

Whisky delight kicked in a while ago,I don't know english now.
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:17am Joe McG:

@ami: No worries, you're doin' alright!
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:18am Marmalade kitty:

Turkish Dylan
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:19am ami ad:

blah
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:30am ami ad:

Go Bouzouki Joe
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:31am Google Translate:

Nedir Ne Degildir? = What is and What is Not?
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:33am Joe McG:

Beautiful, GT. Isn't that the name of a PiL album, too?
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:35am PiL:

This Is What You Want...This Is What You Get.
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:36am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, Johnny.
  Sun. 11/13/11 12:57am Marmalade kitty:

Clash city rocker opening for the Bangles cow bell psychedelia
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:06am Matt from Springfield:

Evening Joe! Evening everyone! I thought Steve Earle was playing when I first went on this page, and now he really is! Good segue, Joe! :)
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:06am 12539:

Justin Townes Earle next?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:07am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! Kind of a necessary segue. I was compelled to do it by the authorities.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

Bobby Bare Jr., just as good to me!
And Joe--you played probably played this rising star's earliest single!--"The Bare Family" on "where did I come from, Mama?" when he was 7!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:10am Joe McG:

@12539: Wish I'd thought of it! @ Matt: That's right, he's on "Singin' in the Kitchen"! Has it in his blood.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

Even more unusual comp album title: just what's a "vernacular photograph"?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:19am Julie:

And me with no whiskey
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:20am ami ad:

Texas delight?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

In any case Hoorah! for the Dust to Digital label for bringing these back to life!

And I just found out Kate Bush's latest is released by the "Anti- " label--my fav label name! :D
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:21am Julie:

Her new label is Fish People I thought
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:21am Joe McG:

@Matt: Most of the photos in the attached book are candid snaps of everyday folks playing instruments. I guess that's the vernacular part.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:23am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: What??? That wouldn't happen with me and my fondness for brown liquors!

"The record comes out this November 21st on Anti." I noticed that earlier tonight in the most recent Rolling Stone.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:24am Julie:

@Matt I don't even have any whiskey at home. I definitely need to get myself some Jack. Hmm I wonder why Fish People isn't releasing it.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Hmm, "Kate Bush releases a new album “Director's Cut” on May 16 on her own label Fish People"...maybe Fish People is her strictly personal label, while she "contracts" possibly with Anti- for widespread distro. Not sure.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:28am Julie:

Heh I thought you said widespread disco..
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, "distro" = "distribution of disco"!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:30am Julie:

whoa freaky I just pulled out a Quicksilver record
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:30am T-Zero:

Nice set, JoeMcG
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:32am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Like that Messenger Service.
Hey T-Zero!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:33am T-Zero:

Hi, Matt
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:38am Joe McG:

To play music is all I want to do! Truth!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:38am Marmalade kitty:

Howdy Julie, Matt, TZ :)
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: The WFMU TelepathStream in 2032 will contain all this info, yet will be telepathed into listeners heads! I can't wait for that development to happen!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

Howdy, MK!!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:40am T-Zero:

Morning, MK. How are you?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:43am Julie:

hiya MK!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:45am Julie:

Joe has left the studio! Time for cocteau twins! muhahaha
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:45am Marmalade kitty:

I'm dandy thanks! having a drop of vodka absolut!!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:47am Joe McG:

@Julie: My bladder is only so large.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:48am T-Zero:

@MK: Putting on a fresh pot of coffee here. Don't know about vodka at 6:00am. lol
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:49am Julie:

John Wagner Coalition what a name
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:49am Marmalade kitty:

6am, where are ya TZ?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:49am Matt from Springfield:

@T-Zero: Didn't you say before you're in Queensland? I'd so like to head to Australia sometime.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:51am Marmalade kitty:

no time like the present, I say!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:51am Julie:

What are you if you're from Queensland, a Queen?
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:51am Julie:

ooh Eli's Coming!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:52am T-Zero:

@MK. No, I was thinking 6:00am your time, well actually almost 7am. It's about 2:00am here. I'm in Ohio.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:52am Marmalade kitty:

Ohio! :)
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Kinda devalues it--if everyone's a Queen, then no one's a Queen! :P
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: Curveball there! I thought you had alluded to Australia (and Qld), yet you're just a couple hours from me! ;)
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:54am Marmalade kitty:

Royalist!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:56am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! Nazareth is a Titan of 70s hard rock!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:56am ami ad:

thought that was an Affinity track,thenks Joe
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:57am T-Zero:

@Matt: You were probably confused by my conversations with the guys from Queensland and Victoria.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:57am Joe McG:

@ Ami and Matt: Happy to please!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:58am T-Zero:

Matt, which Springfield again? I've forgotten.
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: True dat, true dat! But good to know I can count on you as a listener from my own time zone!
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:59am Julie:

Matt is the Simpson they never talk about
  Sun. 11/13/11 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

Springfield, VIRGINIA!
And not Massachusetts, Missouri, Illinois or others! :)
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:00am Marmalade kitty:

havent seen coalhard for AGES :(
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:01am T-Zero:

@Matt... Ah. I knew it wasn't Springfield, Ohio. But admit I thought you were in Massachusetts.
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: You can NEVER have enough Minnie R.!
@Julie: I haven't gotten so much "screen time" on the show--they think my wisecracks are "too cerebral"...
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:01am Julie:

@MK yeah me either..
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:02am Mike Sin:

Although they would have been deemed too "uncool" by the '70s heavy rock world, Nazareth probably could have cleaned up if they cut an Xmas LP.
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:02am Julie:

this is so weird, I'm usually in bed when I listen to this show
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:02am Julie:

@Mike YES
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

@MK: One time, I asked that online, and coalhard (or something calling himself that) came out for a short response--I don't know if coalhard still listens but stopped commenting, or else he works the night shift now or what. I miss 'im as well Marmalade :(
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:03am Mike Sin:

Hey, I just scored a minty fresh copy of the Sweet Thursday LP last year!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:04am Joe McG:

@Mike: It's a good 'ne!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Slade cut a great Christmas record, Nazareth probably would've on the other side of the pond--in fact I wish a lot of rock bands had cut upbeat rock and glam Xmas songs in that manner.
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:07am Julie:

T. Rex did Christmas Bop
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:15am Mike Sin:

Oh yes, many cut secular holiday ditties back in the day, but "Nazareth" would have perfect for the traditional Christian route.
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:16am Julie:

wonder if people picked up their albums anyway thinking it was religious music
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:19am ami ad:

okay,good nights,cheers Joe and all
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:19am Marmalade kitty:

:)
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:20am Joe McG:

@ami: Thanks for tuning in! Have a good night.
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:32am Julie:

ooooh good stuff
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:34am Mike Sin:

Over the past few years, I've realized that "Morning Dew" might have been the obscure "Hey Joe" in terms of gratuitous versions. And tying it all together -- didn't Nazareth cut that track as a single? I enjoyed this lower-fi version Joe McG just played...
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:40am Joe McG:

@Mike: They did indeed. This Index stuff is pretty amazing. One track is called "Feedback" and it's pretty fierce for 1969. Did you like the "In My Room"/Beach Boys connection? It's Making Connections night!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:40am Marmalade kitty:

Hi Mike!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:54am Joe McG:

Thanks everyone for listening....hope y'all have a good week!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:57am Julie:

hey! weekend's not over yet!
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:58am Joe McG:

Stay tuned for Julie, folks...
  Sun. 11/13/11 2:59am Julie:

I'm doing a show? oops
  Sun. 11/13/11 3:00am T-Zero:

Heh, I was confused and just realized you're filling in this morning for Mary. I was wondering what Joe kept talking about. lol
  Sun. 11/13/11 3:00am Marmalade kitty:

It's not over til its OVA!
  Sun. 11/13/11 3:01am Marmalade kitty:

Great show Joe!
