  Tue. 5/15/12 6:02pm Carmichael:

Good day, eh? Who are the 4 Amigos?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:03pm Doug S.:

Sir øשl! An honor and pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:03pm Doug S.:

Carmichael, the natty lads ensconced here are the Flaming Souls. Listen for them coming up!
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:04pm Gurldogg:

Wow, catching the show live! What a happy accident!
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:05pm øשl:

wouldn't miss it, some of the most life-affirming tunes on earth/unearthed hail from this very region
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:07pm Doug S.:

Heya Gurldogg! So glad you're on the jalopy. Watch that back fender, it's kinda loose.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:07pm ndbob:

Hello Owl! Good to see you here again. Hello Carmichael and Gurldogg
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:10pm øשl:

hey now ndbob. good to be hear, in earshot, anyway :)

Keep on forgetting Doug is on on Tuesdays.

Our sombrero-sporting chums are up next.

{I never forget you, NGH.}
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:16pm northguineahills:

jaja, Doug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:17pm Doug S.:

Yeah, I'm speechless too.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:19pm Carmichael:

Hey Bob!
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:20pm Carmichael:

@øשl: Exactly where is your region you refer to?
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:23pm øשl:

l'afrique du sud, naturellement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:23pm Doug S.:

I'm so fooking excited I forgot to back announce the last set. Obviously you fine ladies and gentlemen don't need me to. It the starving thousands not follow the visuals who are suffering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:26pm Doug S.:

This Soul Bandit's track has got Ghostbusters all up innit, no?
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:29pm Gurldogg:

Is that what you heard? I thought it was "Soul Finger" by the BarKays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:32pm Doug S.:

@Gurldogg, yes yes of course. There are many who claim Ray Parker's Ghostbusters was a rip of the Bar-Kays.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:33pm Carmichael:

Yep, I heard a distinct BarKay style.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:33pm øשl:

Following GTDS will be Kaminsky Kamoutsky with Jesse. You can follow Jesse's show and make comments on his playlist page here:

The odd vocal utterances on this one remind of of Slim Gaillard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:40pm Doug S.:

He's saying something about "reggae," but it sounds like Gaillard's gibberish. To my innocent ears, at least.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:42pm listener james from westwood:

just looking thru the playlist; i wish i'd had the office party mix #1 at some of my office parties. beats the heck outta xmas carols!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:45pm Doug S.:

Well you are in luck, Listener James. Here is Office Party Mix #1:

And here is Mix #2:

Party at James's!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:46pm Doug S.:

The stunning tandem of Barney Rachabane (tenor) and Dennis Mpale (trumpet) on this cut.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:47pm listener james from westwood:

Super-sweet! Thanks, Doug! I'll get the spare chairs and the onion dip all set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:50pm Doug S.:

Jacob Nkosi on keyboards. Must be a relative of West Nkosi.
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:52pm Holly in NC:

Hi Doug & all!
Is Lincoln feeling better?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:55pm Doug S.:

Still coldy, Holly. She missed her soccer game yesterday (they won 11-0), but she performed with her youth symphony Sunday night to much applause.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/15/12 6:56pm Doug S.:

Once again, the action continues over at Kaminsky Kamoutsky:
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:57pm northguineahills:

Ass-kickin' set, Doug!
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:58pm Holly in NC:

Glad to hear she's on the mend. Is she a drummer also?

Heading over to Jesse's momentarily - really enjoyed his preview show. And I love Weirdo Records.

hey doug,
I think we're ready here
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:59pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
  Tue. 5/15/12 6:59pm listener james from westwood:

many thanks, doug!
  Wed. 5/16/12 2:42pm Van in DC:

Great pic :)
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:25pm Van in DC:

Now into the last set. Loving the show so far!
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:45pm Doug S.:

Hey Van, I saw you check in at BWW on Twitter at 6pm last night. I guess you couldn't convince the manager to pipe the Drummer stream in on the house audio system.
  Thu. 5/17/12 8:27am Van in DC:

Nope! But they did have live music, a pretty good guitarist / vocalist. In fact, it was the guy in the video down the page here: ...went up and talked WFMU with him during a break though, does that count? :)
