now taking bets: who will win in this colossal fight to the finish, this dj battle of epic proportions: the incumbent Kurt Gottschalk or the insurgent Rich Hazelton? vote now and help to decide the fate of all mankind listening to this show.

wow julius eastman.
thanks for the alt 4th, whilst(?! just slipped out, am in an international mood) just not so into the usa. I'm cleaning the apt and enjoying the cool windy nyc day from the wide open windows. And no family obligations or group bbq boredom...though I am probably the boring one not into drinking and shouting about futbol.
Love the rain and esp the thunderstorms; nyc foliage is so lush this year.
looking forward to rest of show tho not so into hearing the Ives, Cohen- but for the sake of cultural history why not?
Patriotic? Can I handle the rest of the show? I love both your shows in general so will hang in..

So, Hank Snow---or his replicant--IS on the playlist!
Nice one, Kurt.

Sesquicentennial is the 150th anniversary. 250th would be the sestercentennial.

Nice rainy-day American Music -- diggin' it!
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:14pm James:

Woody Guthrie is just what i was about to call in to request. His music is the epitome of what patriotic music should be. He was both equally critical as he was proud to be an American.
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:19pm Marc:

"You're A Grand Ole Flag." By George M. Cohan. What's more patriotic than our flag?
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:23pm James:

If we can hear Pete Seegers version of Ode to Joy, that would be phenomenal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/4/14 4:24pm Caryn:

I'm seconding the Seeger request!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/4/14 4:35pm Caryn:

Hmm, now that we've had 2 Leonard Bernstein appearances, I wonder if there will be a third? What with "Songfest" and "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue", there's still some America-themed Bernstein to go.
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:41pm Dave in PA:

I remember about 25 years ago hearing a radio program that I think was put together by a DJ with an American theme - mostly music from the 60s/70s - and I heard it more than once over the years - but I would have a hard time pinpointing it now - anyone have a clue what I am talking about?
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:41pm Carmichael:

Heya Kurt, happy 4th to ya. Long time no listen ...
  Fri. 7/4/14 4:44pm Dave in PA:

Bernstein was *not* a "bear" - discuss...

  Fri. 7/4/14 4:48pm Carmichael:

@Dave: perhaps Stan Freburg? He had a lot of comedy-based Americana stuff.

God, remember going to a Yes concert at Roosevelt Field right in your ('FMU) hometown, with Yes version of America you played blaring on the car stereo as I drove up the Turnpike. And MX-80 Sound; have always enjoyed their entry on the Ralph Records sampler released when writer of Left my Heart in San Francisco passed away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/4/14 4:58pm Caryn:

Aw, put the Meat Puppets on the playlist! How am I supposed to star them if they're not there?

Yay, thanks guys!
  Fri. 7/4/14 5:01pm andy the painter:

may I suggest "democracy is coming (to the USA)" by mr L Cohen?

I think the title track to an album from the nineties?

happy fourth! thanks!
  Fri. 7/4/14 5:10pm Eric the Half a Bee:

Damn, dude, James Blood: ya killin! America, do you remember the love? Next you'll be spinning Ornette's Skies over America...

Freburg !
...'American Ruse' by MC5 comes to mind
...my 4th comp.s have included (from lack of resources as much as anything, I suppose):
- 'No More Kings' from Schoolhouse Rock (or Tribute thereof - Ween!)
...'American Music' by Blasters (& *their* version of '4th of July')
...'There's a Wall' by Dar Williams
...lessee - what else...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/4/14 5:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'Power & Glory' by Phil Ochs is a kicker...

@dc waters: yep, when the Polynesians sailed from South America to the Easter Islands in 1062, they brought with them yams and a copy of the Stars & Stripes Forver Meringue.
