I can't stay long. I just wanted to see if I really wasn't here.

There will be some rudy-poot.

I must leave this room for the meeting in another room, sadly. Thank you for holding forth today, Joe. I'll catch the archive later.

I loves the name Cotillion

Many thanks, Brian! But I have to go all the way to the UK for it....actually, not a problem! @Uncle Mike: Hey, UM! Thanks for letting me have some Friday afternoon fun. Be well doing whatever it is you're going to be doing today!

You've been waiting all your life to play this, haven't you?
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:19pm Joe McG:

@pss: I did a live show a few weeks ago and couldn't really include any Millie, so this makes me very happy.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:19pm Parq:

I want Millie Jackson walking with me when I'm out late at night in sketchy neighborhoods.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:20pm pacific standard simon:

Except that she might see a friend and feed you to him.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:21pm Parq:

I'm sure at heart she is, in Larraine Newman's words, just a simple girl who likes to cook and sew.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:22pm listener james from westwood:

i'd 'a known it was gonna be that kind of party ...
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:22pm northguineahills:

I just want to walk w/ Millie Jackson...
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:24pm Joe McG:

You wouldn't rather do the camel walk with Millie Jackson?

Hey, Mike! Thought we'd spring it on ya. Good to know I'm coming through loud and clear on the non-broken mic!
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:50pm still b/p:

The pop-up link on this page opens the regular studio stream instead of the Drummer stream. I got it open from a different link, but I still had a big Rob Ford rant 'bout that ....'kay?
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Funkiest. Germans. Ever.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:51pm Doug Schulkind:

@still b/p
The linkage on Joe's playlist page is confusing because it provides links to BOTH the stream and the main WFMU channel. This is different from Uncle Michael's and other GTDR show playlists that have only links to the stream. Sorry 'bout that!
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:52pm Joe McG:

Hmm, I'll call upstairs and see what's up. Thanks for the info, still b/p!
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:53pm Carmichael:

Guiseppe McGaskolino! A pleasant surprise.

Joe, the stream is clear as a mountain ........
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:56pm still b/p:

If you want only attentive, clear-headed people clicking on those accurately labeled links...you noising up the wrong surface
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 12:59pm Joe McG:

@still b/p: Definitely don't want only clear-headed people listening to THIS show! Hey, Carm!

oh, art, you knew that was coming.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:16pm Doug Schulkind:

Joe, aren't you glad I didn't pull out my copy of this during the previous air slot?! On the other hand, one good spin deserves another...
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:16pm Carmichael:

Strangely, I'm reminded of Swamp Dogg when hearing this.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:17pm Joe McG:

Sure am, Doug! Chick was kind enough to keep it going for 21 minutes so I could grab lunch!

A Clarence White tribute?

lol, pss!

Probably got one in me about James, too, but I think the moment's passed.

That last dance tune in the Fiddlin' Powers set sounded like Flop-Eared Mule

oh that explains it, they're from shelbyville. those cousin-marrying lemon-tree-stealing stinkbags.

Was that written with an NEA grant?
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:36pm Jesus:

That was bracing.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:37pm Mike East:

oh yes, lunch. boss bought me afghan cuz he's making me stay late. What do you have, Parq?
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:37pm listener james from westwood:

he has come again! (and now owes al swearengen five bucks.)
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:38pm pacific standard simon:

This show separates the cubicle-bound slackers from the truly unemployed.
  Fri. 11/15/13 1:44pm ttrish:

Caesar salad and a small bowl of cherries for dessert over here. I mention it because those cherries were in time with the music.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:45pm Parq:

Friday's my day to go to Union Sq Greemnarket for lunch. Probably won't be back until after the show's over. Joe, this has been really, really ... uh .. it .. y'see, there's .. oh never mind.

'Round here we call it the Differently-abled Creek Ferry.

What is everyone going to be for Thanksgiving this year?
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 1:59pm pacific standard simon:

Hell no! Nor any so-called virgins named Mary.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 2:02pm pacific standard simon:

I'm probably going to be a fat fucking German, because we're having sausage, potato pancakes, braised cabbage, sauteed radishes and way too many pies.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 2:03pm northguineahills:

Sounds awesome, pss!

Yeah Doug. I remember you mentioning you had some ties to Vermont.

Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 2:08pm Doug Schulkind:

My wife and I (and now daughter) have gone to Vermont for Thanksgiving almost every year for the past two decades—though we haven't since we moved to Pittsburgh in 2010.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 2:09pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

@pss I didn't make any kraut this year. But people who did are probably jarring it ready about now. homemade kraut is really good. I did make some kimchi, though.

When I Google "No Right Turn" or "No Right Turn Band" or even add "The Gold Ring", it does not return any music related results

@Mark - I've been meaning to try making kimchi (got the cookbook), but red cabbage and apples is such an easy side dish that I usually just cook it on demand.

I like 'Past, Present & Future' a lot.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 2:29pm Joe McG:

@Brian: During Singles Going Steady week Fabio impressed me by playing a copy of one of Al's earliest singles (if not his earliest) "Turn into Earth."

Jimmy Page plays lead guitar on this record, in case you were wondering why some of those fills sounded familiar.
