Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 5:40pm Doug Schulkind:

That is definitely a Gettysburg address, Artie!
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 5:42pm Aurélie E:

just let me google "Gettysburg adress"
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 5:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Good morning to you, Aurélie!
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 5:44pm Aurélie E:

Hi Doug :)

Last free standing phone booth in America. Two score and ten cents and they'll put you through to Pittsburgh.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 5:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Ten cents? I thought you said it was free, Artie!

evening Doug and everyone!
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:02pm Carmichael:

Cool picture, Doug. Made out of Lincoln Legos.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:02pm Gary:

I remember Lincoln Logs
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:03pm northguineahills:

Why are there lady lego Jesuses?
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi and howdy ndbob, Gary and NGH!
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

@NGH
I loved the Lagy Lego Jesuses. At least before they sold out and went commercial.

"Look me up at my Gettysburg address." - Bugs Bunny gotten up as Abe in "Southern Fried Rabbit" (one of thsoe cartoons with broad racial humor that keeps them off present-day TV, and probably rightly so).

"loved by all, friend of many, and now his head, is on the penny"

@Parq
Probably resting in the vault somewhere in the vicinity of "Porky Pig in Africa."

oh yeah, it's walter brennan

Hyde, you old Jekyll, you!
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:11pm Carmichael:

This was long before Grandpappy Amos and Pepino.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

The name "Pepino" makes me hungry. Just saying.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:14pm Carmichael:

Boy, Stan Freberg. My favorite of his is "Take an Indian to Lunch".
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:15pm Gary:

I think my parents might have had this record
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Possibly they had Volume 1, Gary? This follow-up (Vol. 2) was recorded in 1995-96.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Volume 1 was recorded in '61.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:26pm Gary:

Wow. Rockin' French Lincoln love
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:29pm Doug Schulkind:

You should expect nothing less, Gary.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:30pm ndbob:

nice song here
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Heard this Walkenhorst song first on Tony Coulter's show Of course.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

What they're serving at the Lincoln Day Dinner: Lambchop.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:34pm Parq:

So, Hot Rod Lincoln on this show? No, I guess not.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:35pm Doug Schulkind:

I almost went that direction, Parq. Could've done and hour of Hot Rod Lincolns. And one Shot Rod Lincoln.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Coming up in the final set: Four different versions of the Gettysburg Address itself, including one from 1898.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:37pm Doug Schulkind:

And if you were expecting the Lord Buckley version with Lionel Hampton, you will be unsorely undisappointed.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:38pm Parq:

Vic Chesnut -- damn, so sad.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:41pm ndbob:

. and Todd Tyler's great song "Emancipation Proclamation"
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

Fucking living in Pittsburgh for the past three years has led me to misspell Gettysburg as Gettysburgh every time I type it out. Argh!
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:48pm Carmichael:

Wow, this is strange. Maybe you have a Barry White version?
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

I might perform unnatural acts for a Barry White version.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Lincoln's actual speech clocked in at around 2 minutes. The next and last version is more than four times that. Gloriously so.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

All praises to Prince Oliver Trager, who opened up his trove of Buckley rarities to share this gem.
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:52pm Carmichael:

Buckley better not call Lincoln "The Nazz". Or "The Linc".
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

@Carmichael
No, he calls him Lanky Linc. Anyway, the Nazz comes up tomorrow at noon, here on Give the Drummer Radio.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:55pm northguineahills:

Stupendously sublime, Doug!
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:57pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 6:58pm hyde:

thanks for playing fine tunes for me while i tried to navigate the horror that is the government health care website. suffice it to say that i learned more from your show than i did on that site....
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:58pm Doug Schulkind:

How do you write "mardi gras" in the plural?!?
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Jesse Kaminsky up next! wfmu.org...
Avatar    Tue. 11/19/13 7:00pm ndbob:

I had problems with that today as well Hyde
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks all for a fun hour!
