Good evening, Laura.

Lovely, as always, to find you on the air, Miss Laura. And you're accepting comments! (If not, exactly, offering a playlist.) Enjoying your exegesis of Cowboy Jack tremendously.

Enjoying the music tonight...I never heard this Egg Sucking Dog song . . . it's blast.

- appreciated CountrySwing up top
- & appreciate the history lesson re Sun & Cash - &tc.
...Slight tangent but Genre correct :
- Do you know that documentary about Sgt. Fitch & Sarge Records of Texas ?? (sargrecords.com...)
...saw it on PBS & really liked it...
Avatar Sun. 8/18/13 8:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...aside from some Country-CountrySwing-Rockabilly in Texas deep history, it touches on Indie labels, record-collecting - things I think FMUheads would appreciate...
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:11pm Mr C:

Laura! So lovely to you on the radio..such a great program tonight.
Avatar Sun. 8/18/13 8:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...who else is gonna play this stuff for us??...

That air-conditioned tune really cooled my evening down to baby-frost ease.

Great to hear you DJing Laura. Yours was one of the first shows I started listening to on WFMU. Perfect sounds for a Sunday evening.

Great Cantrell show as ever (never got a chance to say that before). Solid tribute making my work easier. One of the first 45s I ever owned was a copy of "The One on the Right" that my political grandparents got me in 66 or so.
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:39pm Hugh:

Ms. Proprietress! So good to hear The Radio Thrift Shop again! Saw Johnny at Carnegie Hall--'64---he sang "I keep my pants on with a piece of twine; Please say you're mine, and pull the twine"...brought the house down!
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:40pm adam:

sorry, i just zoned out, what are you playing right now? with the female vocalist..."pushing up against a stone..." wow
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:45pm adam:

never mind figured it out. thanks for playing, great stuff!
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:49pm cavorting with nudists:

Hugh: Now that's weird. My older brothers had some albums by groups like the New Christy Minstrels released back in the early-60s commercial folk boom, and there was definitely a live cut on one of them that was some dude doing a parody of country music, including those lyrics set to "I Walk the Line." Got a big laugh from the audience. So was the New Christy Minstrels (or whoever) dude simply relaying Johnny Cash's in-concert goof, or did Johnny Cash parrot the New Christy Minstrels (or whoever) dude's parody figuring a laugh was a laugh?
Avatar Sun. 8/18/13 8:58pm Parq:

Great show. Listening carefully to see who was in the last set.
  Sun. 8/18/13 8:59pm 12539:

Thanks, Laura!
  Sun. 8/18/13 9:01pm cavorting with nudists:

Well, if anyone cares, I looked around for a minute on Google and found the "Please Pull the twine" lyrics attributed to Johnny himself, the New Christy Minstrels, the Smothers Brothers, and Bobby Darin. And here's a video of Roger Miller singing it while sitting next to Johnny Cash: https://plus.google.com/100542951519486111563/posts/RD4BhUFFCtN
