Holiday weather in Watford ?
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:13am listener james from westwood:

copyediting and proofreading are separate stages. or at least they should be. sometimes the former is done during the latter, which can be a mess. sign of cheapness on a publisher's part.
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:14am listener james from westwood:

congrats, doug! may the gates open wide to new drummer lis'ners across the schedule!

Paul, you kidding, off to Dumfries & Galloway tomorrow. Sawney Bean country.
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:16am listener james from westwood:

brian, copyediting occurs before the work is set in type, and is the stage where grammar, spelling, punctuation, consistency, and adherence to standard style are all addressed. the editor makes corrections and queries the author and/or production editor to iron out inconsistencies, secure missing info, fix incomplete references, verify facts, and the like. can be light or a virtual rewrite (we call that developmental editing).
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:16am duke:

Cool! Huffington Post finally makes the big time. Doug adds class to HuffPost.
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:16am Van in DC:

Very nice!

This cumbia reminds me that there are two films with the title ' El Acordéon Del Diablo ' Best plan is to try and see both !
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:18am listener james from westwood:

proofreading is simpler: the proofer sticks to ensuring that the ms was set in type correctly. you check headings, scan type (sometimes vs. the original manuscript), check page numbering vs table of contents, and give it a final read. if any stray editing/factual problems did survive copyediting, it's sporting to at least flag them for the production editor and/or author. sometimes you can just fix them. can be done on paper or pdf.
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:18am Brian in UK:

james, so copyediting can be really fundamental to the formatting of the book?
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:19am Paul Sherratt:

>>off to Dumfries & Galloway tomorrow.

  Fri. 6/22/12 9:20am listener james from westwood:

One problem with my bio on Huffington: It says I "hosted" Give the Drummer Some on WFMU! Now I know FOR A FACT that I am still doing the show. Guess how I know...
  Fri. 6/22/12 9:22am listener james from westwood:

brian: not strictly to the formatting, although sometimes modern copyeditors will be asked to apply character or paragraph styles in word, or apply xml coding, so when the ms is typeset, that coding will match the style selections in the publishing software and code text into the proper font, spacing, indent, etc. but copyediting itself doesn't affect formatting. that's the designer's task. but copyediting can affect the holy hell out of the readability and flow of the book.

Second that charlie - very funny book.

Greg G has been a guest a number of times. With Dave the Spazz I think.

caulfield: not one of the finest citizens the bronx had to offer.

Lazlo Toth! Loved that book.

Minnie!!! Didn't realize how socially conscious she was!
Forty years on, she's still pretty much spot on...

I kept anticipating a rightward lurch from Ms. Pearl, but she actually spoke truth to power!

We we're kinda hoping you'd come up with the "Nudist Colony" cover, Paul. Or maybe not.
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:39am ndbob:

@Matt yep - I once had the 45 of that actually
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:41am Matt from Springfield:

@NDbob: Wow! That's a slick find. You could play that back-to-back with "2 + 2 = ?" for some contrast!
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:45am Matt from Springfield:

Where is this song from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 6/22/12 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

Matt, this is from Benin. As was the opening track in this set.
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:48am Paul Sherratt:

I tried but failed. Could only come up with covers of the transcripts of Westminster parliamentary debates. Not the same thing.
Yet ...
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:50am ndbob:

There's a great Bear Family collection "Next Stop is Vietnam", with the "Ballad of the Yellow Beret" "Kathy's Letter", and dozens of great topical songs.

But still obscene nonetheless, eh Paul?
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:51am Brian in UK:

Good show, Doug. See youse in a couple of weeks.
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:51am Matt from Springfield:

This is cool 70s production, along with what I guessed must be some West African language. I've loved Gabon's music for some time now, though since you introduced me to Benin lately I think I might enjoy their music even more.
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:51am Brian in UK:

Drive safely, it's always the others.
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:53am Paul Sherratt:

More often than not, yes.
But what is Kirk looking at ?
  Fri. 6/22/12 11:55am Parq:

Dug the background on "Nounangnon". Love what African musicians do with electric organs.
