Tuba time!
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 12:23am Joe McG:

It's always time for tubas!
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:42am 12539:

All the chatty people must be on vacation.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 12:43am Joe McG:

I was about to say, 12539, it looks like you and me, kid! Either that, or they hate bagpipes.
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:44am amEdeo:

No! Wait. I'm here, I think. I think, therefor I am here.
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:45am Scuttle:

Always in it for some pipes
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 12:46am Joe McG:

A-ha, there is another soul. What say: Is there possibly a third one out there? Ah, Scuttle, there we go!
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:46am 12539:

Thank goodness other people showed up. I was afraid Joe would have to do a tribute to the comments board.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 12:48am Joe McG:

I was thinking of paying tribute to Sammy Petrillo tonight. Ah, well!
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:51am amEdeo:

Sammy Petrillo, now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time... a long, long time. What a life. There's a movie franchise waiting to happen. Maybe.
  Sun. 7/29/12 12:51am Scuttle:

much Selda today- so awesome.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 1:00am Joe McG:

Do check out the archive if you missed the show this evenin'.
  Sun. 7/29/12 1:02am amEdeo:

Yus Yus! Good stuff with Jimmy Cliff. Listened to some of Rebirth the other day.
  Sun. 7/29/12 1:03am michele:

Joe! I'm awake! I'm not listening but I can't belive I am awake. I listened to you last years premium today, the first song is so good, they all are. Have a good show and I am so happy I got to say hello. You're the best!
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 1:05am Joe McG:

Michele, thanks for saying hi! I can't believe you're up, either. Thanks for leaving me such a sweet note on my computer. ;)
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 1:11am Joe McG:

The only thing better than one Travis Wammack song is TWO Travis Wammack songs.
  Sun. 7/29/12 1:15am Andrew Waterloo:

It seems my Italian coffee at 6pm has kept me up later than usual as well :)
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 1:16am Joe McG:

Hey, Andrew, nice to see you. I'm wondering what's up. Everybody must be watching the Olympics or something!
  Sun. 7/29/12 1:46am 12539:

What's next, Blood Sweat & Tears?
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 1:48am Joe McG:

Great idea. I don't have any 45s by them. Life's disappointments multiply!
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:03am 12539:

"The owner of the label was Carmen Murphy, who, by the way was a beautician. The acronym H.O.B. actually stands for House Of Beauty."
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:13am Joe McG:

Thanks, 12539, great info.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:16am 12539:

Apparently the label began as rehearsal space in the basement of her salon:

You, EFD and Nick Gilder will need this info when you represent fmu on Pop Quiz USA
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:20am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe & 12539 or can I call you 12?
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:21am 12539:

Only if I can call you Br.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:21am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Quiet night of quiet stars over here. How's there?
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:23am Mike Sin:

Well hello Joe! Just listened to "Single File" as I was driiving back from a DJ gig for a private party held at a vintage clothing store.

What's the deal with Terri Lane?
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:23am Brian in UK:

I got a Max Ochs off Tompkins Square a while back, very homely.

I'd prefer Handsome but hell. Full blue sky this AM ready for another Olympic maelstrom.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:25am Joe McG:

@MIke: Hey, Mike! I'm not sure, but I know she's not this Terri Lane: www.terrilanerocks.com
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:27am Brian in UK:

Got any kora, Joe? Toumani Diabati, Ballake Sissoko etc?
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:28am Joe McG:

@Brian: I'm sure we do! I like that Toumani Variations album. But I feel like I'm already going somewhere else....
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:32am Brian in UK:

I like where you are going. Never understood Doug's thing for Maddy.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:34am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha! I understand the voice part, but I have to agree about the other. I'm an Anne Briggs guy all the way.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:34am Brian in UK:

Mooncrest is the same label as second Chilli Willy. Short lived sad to say.

Is this the ten minute number?
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:40am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian, yes, Mooncrest had a lot of great roots music, mostly Britfolk.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:42am Brian in UK:

Love to have been at the Turkish bash at the Lincoln. See you played Kolektifistanbul.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:45am Joe McG:

I did, Brian. I've got the song titles all messed up, but I found the one I wanted! Thx again.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:47am Brian in UK:

Just did a mix tape (CD) and included one of those tracks needed some heavy tuba action!!
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:50am Joe McG:

It's great. I listen to it in the car and play it really loud.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:53am Brian in UK:

This style seems to be coming back over here Ed Sheeran is proving popular, singer & guitar.
Avatar    Sun. 7/29/12 2:54am Joe McG:

I don't mind. If someone wants to market a bunch of Bill Withers wannabes, I'm ready to take all of them. Can't go wrong with their role model.
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:55am Brian in UK:

You're not wrong there.
Great set, Joe. May the Olympics be with you always!!!!
  Sun. 7/29/12 2:56am 12539:

Thanks for the show, Joe. Will you be filling in again for Paris Star Time next week?
