the playlist isn't updating, is that you or an issue?

Has it really been 17 years?

Ahh, another benefit of GTDS--playlists are open early!
Hi Doug! Parq! marcury!

That's what the piece of paper says, Matt. And you can't contradict the piece of paper.
  Tue. 3/20/12 5:50pm marcury:

very strange, the comments update, but the playlist is stuck at cold sweat

the big leap? got a safety net? fall arrest training? cushy pillows?

Marc, that's because the show hasn't started yet. Fun begins at 6pm (ET).

Congratulations, Doug!!!!!!
May I ask what music you will privately play for your wife later this evening? And what's for dinner?
  Tue. 3/20/12 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

It costs $thousands in attorneys to change a piece of paper. Or rather one of the following:
a) Lawyers b) Guns or c) Money

Happy though that you two are happy! :)

After the show, we had to Tram's homestyle Vietnamese joint on Penn Avenue. The best Vietnamese food since the place downstairs on Doyers Street in Lower Manhattan. (OK, now I'm gonna cry.)

Pho, which, apparently, is appropriately pronounced "fuh."
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

The Vietnamese are then, the "Kings of Fuh"!

Matt, I snagged the Texas Tophands record off the Hillbilly-Researcher site. Note sure if the link is still good.
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:16pm Holly in NC:

@Matt - The 7" is incredibly beat - scratched & warped. And I never sell records that I like.

Now I want pho. mmmm. Will have to settle for liverwurst or pulled pork.

Born 1937, Bill Anderson has had a notably long and successful career in country music decades after his last Top Ten hit as a performer (in 1978). To cite one example: "Give it Away", co-written by Anderson and performed by George Strait, won "Song of the Year" from the Academy of Country Music in 2006; and was named the Country Music Association's "Song of the Year" in November 2007. Anderson wrote or co-wrote other major hits for Connie Smith, Kenny Chesney, and the duo of Brad Paisley & Alison Krauss. Ray Price's version of Bill's "City Lights" is a long-time personal favorite.
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Loved that Savannah Churchill one! I think Paul McC said in an interview long ago that he used to love that one.

You friggin rock, Holly!
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:23pm ndbob:

wow Doug, didn't know that about Savannah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/20/12 6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi ndbob. Yeah, a really tragic story. Churchill lived but was a physical wreck the rest of her life.

A close cousin to "I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/20/12 6:30pm Doug Schulkind:

I usually can't stand any theme longer than an hour. If I hold my interest, I suppose it'll hold yours. Thank god I have Friday mornings.
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

No Wiki for Emry Arthur, but look what came up, under Man of Constant Sorrow:
"An early version was recorded by Emry Arthur in 1928 (Vocalion Vo 5208)."
  Tue. 3/20/12 6:32pm listener james from westwood:

Okay I have to keep working on my article now, because if I don't get this one out and published, I won't get tenure and then where we, the happy couple (and child) be? In Pittsburgh, that's where -- whatever our state of mind.
