WFMU's October silent fundraiser is underway, as if you didn't already know. I don't care whose show you pledge to as long as you pledge. Here's the link to pledge to my show if yer so inclined: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:07pm Nate K:

Hola Matt! Looking forward to the Monk/Huey stuff. And feel free to keep the NOLA party going.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:09pm Uncle Michael:

I might have to roll a DD die to decide who to pledge to. I want the t-shirt!
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:09pm Nate K:

'Fess!
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:09pm Uncle Michael:

It's Ivory Joe Hunter's birthday too.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:10pm duke:

Some of that long hair music
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Floating, whirled.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:12pm Ted Barron:

Oh yeah.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:12pm Parq:

Fiveash, welcome back! I envy FMU's delagation to the Stomp every year, and while I may get there myself yet, I always look forward to these "Look what I got" shows.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:12pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, did you meet my Cosimo Matassa archivist pal at the Stomp?
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:13pm Parq:

Ted's sub slots were magnificent, by the way.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:16pm Matt F:

UM- Nah, we had a late dinner at the Camellia Grill and the bloat kept us away from the Thursday dance party!

Shirley of Shirley & Lee: Greatest vocalist of all time?
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:18pm Uncle Michael:

New Orleans food trumps everything.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:24pm Matt F:

Really the Ponderosa Stomp is just a good thing to plan an eating vacation around. I ate so many oysters, hoping the Mercury Poisoning would kill me before the credit card debt did. No such luck!
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:26pm Uncle Michael:

I'm imagining the fun, food and music of NOLA without huge freaking crowds. Is that a fair estimation?
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:27pm Nate K:

Did you hit up Adolfo's on Frenchmen by chance? Quite possibly the best meal I've ever had in my life.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:27pm Uncle Michael:

Like even less Mard Gras-like than Jazzfest is?
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:27pm Matt F:

That's about right. That and about half the WFMU on-air staff.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:29pm Matt F:

Nate- never heard of it. Will have to put it on the list for next time.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:29pm Ted Barron:

I would never discourage playing Huey and the Clowns, but it appears that his birthday is actually on January 26th.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:32pm Doug Schulkind:

And the Clowns' birthday is February 30.

I'm on lunch break from a day-long work strategic planning meeting. Fiveash to the rescue!!
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:33pm Ted Barron:

Shirley's only rival is Rosie of Rosie and the Originals.

"My favorite Marchan" -- Hah! Love it. Going to steal it.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:35pm northguineahills:

Monk, so nice. Joe dropped some as well.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:41pm Doug Schulkind:

The New York Times just posted a story about these rabbis who, for a fee, will kidnap and torture (with cattle prods) husbands until they agree to a divorce. And now the Times' site is down. Coincidence?!
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:42pm Matt F:

Wasn't that the plotline of a Sopranos episode?
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:44pm Nate K:

Yup, sort of. Paulie and Silvio did the dirty work though.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:45pm Doug Schulkind:

Rest easy, everyone, the torture rabbis are back online (though now in FBI custody).
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:45pm Matt F:

Parq- credit where credit's due, I stole that joke from John Funke (host of the best radio show in the world, "Backwoods", Saturday mornings 10 Am to noon on 88.1 WMBR, Cambridge MA.)

"and where are the romans now?"
"you're lookin' at 'em."
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 2:49pm northguineahills:

Doug, some people would pay good money for that to done to themselves. (w/ or w/o the divorce)
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 2:57pm listener james from westwood:

reminds me of pete bondurant's marital-strife shakedown service at the start of "american tabloid."
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:00pm Doug Schulkind:

At least the rabbis weren't farming out their torture to a mohel.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:08pm northguineahills:

What about mohels for goys! Some may sign up for that! (not sure where this is going).
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:09pm Parq:

A guy walks past a shop which has nothing but a clock in the window. He happens to have his broken watch in his briefcase, as he's been meaning to bring it in for repair. He goes into the shop and addresses the man inside. He asks if the watch can be repaired. The store man says, "I don't fix watches. I'm a mohel."

The customer says, "You're a mohel? Then why are you displaying a clock outside?"

The store man says, "OK, you tell me what I should display there."
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:11pm Uncle Michael:

A wallet.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:13pm Uncle Michael:

Very happy to hear this song again!
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:14pm Matt F:

A shoemaker asks his friend the mohel to save all the foreskins from circumsisions and bring them to him, and he will make a beautiful gift for him. The mohel does so, and continues to do so for ten years. Finally the shoemaker calls the mohel and tells him that his gift is ready. The mohel gets there and the shoemaker presents him with a wallet.
"A wallet? Ten yeaars of foreskins and all you got out of it was a wallet?"
"Yeah, but if you rub it it turns into a suitcase".
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:17pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, a wallet.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:18pm northguineahills:

booo.... lol!

man, I miss everything.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:25pm Parq:

Sadly, a Google search for "old bluesmen jokes" yields nothing worth mentioning.
  Thu. 10/10/13 3:27pm Lore:

Parq, here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OKx-YNJGhU
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:28pm Matt F:

There is a story about Jimmy Reed, not exactly a joke but it sorta has a punchline: "I done peed".
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:38pm Parq:

Fiveash, let's have it! Speaking of going to pee, I gotta go, although for a different reason. In case I don't make it back by 4, I'll say now that this has been another stellar show.
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:39pm Monica:

matt! working but listening. great as always! gotta listen to that promised land album now, thanks for turning me onto it!
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:40pm Matt F:

Yo Mo!
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:46pm Matt F:

Hey Lore! Hoping to make the RL Boyce show on the 19th. Feel free to plug it here on the playlist.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:53pm holland oats:

great song, but thx to rock n roll hall of fame, now i can't hear albert king without picturing john mayer
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:55pm Matt F:

search for the recent all star R&R hall of fame jam on "crossroads" on youtube... if you dare. Probably the worst thing ever.
  Thu. 10/10/13 3:56pm Lore:

Thanks Matt! Yeah, I hope we'll all be able to make it and do the old folks boogie for a while.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:56pm listener james from westwood:

some singles going steady practice here, i see.
this show was a firecraker. thanks for lighting the fuse, matt!
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:56pm Uncle Michael:

Hey...Joe Bonnamassa is coming to my town!
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:57pm duke:

Great show Mr. Matt
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:57pm Uncle Michael:

Indeed...thanks Matt
Avatar Thu. 10/10/13 3:58pm Matt F:

UM- will he be bringing bluesmen Dave Grohl and Geddy Lee with him?
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 3:59pm Brian in UK:

Hello/Goodbye Matt. The Trems song written by Cat Stevens. Respect Thelonious.
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 4:00pm Uncle Michael:

One can only hope, Matt.
  Thu. 10/10/13 4:00pm trs:

Good fill-ins while you were away, Matt.
And good to hear you back.
