Hi Doug & all!
Doug DID you see any moose? I've been obsessively watching the Alaskan brown bear/salmon live cam:!/live-cams/player/brown-bear-salmon-cam-brooks-falls

Re Olympics - my love for Dorothy Hamill caused me to ruin my hair, forever. And Eric Heiden was my first huge "non-threatening boy" crush.

I've been to Lake Tahoe once. The Nevada side, however. It's a long story. Saw a guy in the cafeteria of one of the casinos at 3am who looked a helluva lot like Garrison Keillor. It may not have been him, but I've always said it was. When I tell the story, that is.
  Fri. 7/27/12 10:45am kat330:

@Doug: Long story? Didn't kill a guy in Reno just to watch him die I hope. We did drive a bit on the Nevada side, but our tent was pitched on the CA side. Gambling holds no intrigue for me whatsoever.

  Fri. 7/27/12 10:48am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Brian--saw your observation earlier about guitar in Africa becoming lighter, the further east you go. Did you mean acoustic guitaring? Zambia rock has some pretty heavy electric guitaring, that's one of the first types of African rock I heard on WFMU.
  Fri. 7/27/12 10:49am Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Seems awfully far to travel just to purchase a trombone, don't you think? :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 7/27/12 10:49am Doug Schulkind:

I had no interest in the gambling. It was an "anthropological" visit. A friend at the time sold subscriptions to the Oakland (Ca.) Tribune. When his unit sold the most in a particular quarter, he was awarded an all-expenses paid weekend to Lake Tahoe. I was visiting then and he took me along.

But the cat adored Varese and now you are marked for a slow and painful death. I wouldn't sleep if I were you.

Yes yes yes — all praises to Brother Hugo.

@Matt: I'm not sure if I will be able to check in. If I'm not doing anything and can nick the computer from the kiddos for a few minutes, sure. And I don't have a smart phone, just the kind that connects to Sarah at the Mayberry switch, and she patches me through to my party. And listens in.
  Fri. 7/27/12 10:57am kat330:

A good idea in that case. But the cat might be more freaked by being in a different space than the music. IIRC, cats are more attached to places than, say, dogs.
  Fri. 7/27/12 10:59am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian in UK:

According to some old friends of his, Lord Buckley's most extraordinary performance may have occurred during a Thanksgiving weekend retreat in the late 1950s at Dr. Janiger's Lake Arrowhead vacation cabin. The result of that performance - Buckley is said to have delivered a non-stop monologue that lasted more than 18 hours - is one of this storys more mysterious elements. "I have never seen a creative process as remarkable as that thing that happened," Janiger said of Buckley's soliloquy. 'I've never seen a human being continuously expound on a variety of subjects in such a refreshing, interesting way over such a long period of time without ever repeating himself. It was a virtuoso performance."

@james: I'll technically be staying on the California side, but it's less than a mile to the State line. I'll play a little 21, but I'm not much of a gambler. I'll swim in that ice-cold lake and my voice will rise an octave or 2.

@Paul Sherratt
Believe it or not I think you are NOT the first direct message from Womad. But maybe you are.

Is there a better two-word phrase in the English language than "ginger bits"?
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:26am Mary Ann Kennedy:

Greetings from Womad ... Perfect place to be listening in!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:27am kat330:

Hey, are you guys giving out Olympics spoilers for us no-cable luddites??
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:27am Brian in UK:

Hey Paul, WOMAD not WOMUD?
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:27am trish:

Hm-mm. Sounds good, Brian.
And oo, lime and ginger goes nicely on fish. I don't think of ginger much outside of winter.

Hello to you Mary Ann Kennedy! Give Womad my love.

maybe i shouldn't be eating then, brian......
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:28am Brian in UK:

Doug you have BBC Radio 3 listening in. Respect. Mary Ann Kennedy.

Don't forget to stay tuned to the stream for the hour-long A Rough Mix show from Steinski. It airs immediately following Give the Drummer Some (Noon, Eastern).

The link to the playlist for that show is here:

Switch over to Steinski's show at noon and keep the conversation conversating.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:32am Brian in UK:

Sounds good, Mary. I'll be catching up later in the week.
Here's a link for the future.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:33am Matt from Springfield:

"Soul Sitar"! A classic bed for sure.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:34am northguineahills:

When I saw Bo Diddley, he wasn't playing, he was just shopping.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:35am Carmichael:

You've a fine Irish name, Ms. Kennedy. But you know that.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:35am kat330:

@Brian: Thanks for that link. I'm in the habit of listening to BBC 5 Fridays (9-11 am here) for Kermode & Mayo. It's always a struggle between GTDS and the MaKer guys. But now they're off for a few weeks, so I can be of one mind. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:38am Carmichael:

I've never seen Bo. But I HAVE seen Albert King, Albert Collins, Johnny Copeland, Gatemouth Brown, Professor Longhair. Hmm, others?
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:39am Brian in UK:

kat check the Radio 3 site there are bound to be other programmes like this.

I can take Kermode & Mayo with one turntable tied behind my back. Ha!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:39am Aurélie:

ow i Love Geater Davis thanks for this one !!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:39am Brian in UK:

Carmichael have a great break. Is Spencer going along?
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:39am Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Seriously? Now the BBC guys are off for a few weeks? Wow, you're either very lucky, or Doug and the BBC are coordinating vacations! ;)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:40am kat330:

Thanks again, Brian, and Doug, I just bet you *can*! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 7/27/12 11:40am Doug Schulkind:

The pleasure is mine, Aurélie!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:42am kat330:

Yeah, Matt, it worked out so well! Unfortunately, though, while Doug was gone, their broadcasts were endlessly interrupted by -- eeesh -- *football news*, or some breaking news.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:43am Carmichael:

@Brian: yes he is, his 1st vacation. Should be lots of other dogs for him to bristle at.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:44am kat330:

@Carmichael: I got to see Albert King in a really intimate blues club in Chicago. A very memorable, full-moon night it was, too, driving home along the lake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 7/27/12 11:45am Doug Schulkind:

Carefull, I have a synchronized swimming report coming up... :-)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:45am Matt from Springfield:

@Aurélie: Still going strong into the early morning hours!
(I actually know where New Caledonia is! How's the weather there right now?)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:46am Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: ALL CAPS comments ALERTS are much better however, than interrupting the programming!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:47am kat330:

With the zooming I must do in order to see the typing field, I can easily avoid your spoiler, Doug.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:49am Brian in UK:

I would love to see the Brownlee brothers come 1st & 2nd in the Triathlon. Alistair got his uni Blue at the same time as my daughter got hers.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:50am Van in DC:

So was any of today's program content courtesy of your recent WFMU mothership visit Doug? I think Amanda mentioned you were busily loading up at one point :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:52am Aurélie:

@Matt from Springfield attend je regarde dehors.. well it's warm outside, I can see the stars & a little wind shakes the palms :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:53am Carmichael:

Boy, does he sound like Hendrix!
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:53am Brian in UK:

Yes, but I pulled an ear-lobe muscle on that last track. I should have stretched more.

New Caledonia has one of the most awesome flags in the world. (Why yes, I am a geographer).

I love how closely you listen! I was indeed snarfing up CDs from WFMU's "new bin" during my visit. But no, none of those gems made it onto today's playlist. Soon come!

From wherever and however, been a joy this morning, Doug! Bye everyone! See some of you on the flip side.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:56am Aurélie:

@northguineahills yeah it's the flag of the pro-independence movement :)

Re: my comment above on Fri. 7/27/12 9:37am: Must apologize for my Olympics inaccuracy there! Why I thought Olga garnered a "10" before Nadia, I dunno. Chalk it up to a parallel universe of True Expectations. She SHOULD have been awarded a 10 (or two).
  Mon. 8/6/12 7:44am Doug Schulkind:

You're right. Olga *should* have gotten a 10 for that back flip and catch off the top of the uneven bars. Did you know they Olympics have now banned that move?
