Oh man, I love Les Baxter. My favorite is Ritual of the Savage (despite the icky title) but this one is great too!

You and me both, Bronwyn!

ola gaylord and his students. maybe brownyn b. can do a show with bronwyn c. ala the gaylord/gaylord pairing.

Hello, Gaylord! Checking in from my office at the newspaper's HQ. Surprise, it's snowing outside! I'm inside writing about food, and glad to be tuned in.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I think this is a swell idea Dale.

@Bronwyn Bishop: How extensive is your sportsy knowledge?
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:14pm JakeGould:

Nice avatar, Bronwyn. Unless you are a sea lion, then peace to you and yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@Wendy do Queijo: Write on!
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gaylord: My sportsy knowledge is nonexistent to the point where my friends and I refer to all sports as "sportsball". Maybe Bronwyn C. could teach me in the ways of sports.

@Jake: arf arf arf.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:18pm JakeGould:

@Bronwyn: May your smelt always be… Whatever condition your smelt should be in to make you happy. What does this Jew-boy know from smelt?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/8/15 5:18pm redkayak:

@bronwyn That would serve you well in Chicago, where our teams generally cause misery :)
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Mmmm, smelt.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:21pm glenn:

are they gefilte smelt?
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:21pm Frege's Nightmare:

Smooth, smooth, smooth. Perfect accompaniment for writing about Robert Browning.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Gefilte smelt, gefilte smelt...
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:24pm P-90:

Greetings Gaylord and the Gaylordained. Off to an engaging start. As usual.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:24pm JakeGould:

Gefilte smelt would need to be backed into the guts of a smelt. I know gefilte fish… I know fish and chips… I know tuna fish… I know all kinds of fish including Abe Vigoda. No clue about smelt other than sea lions eat it like it’s crack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:25pm Gaylord Fields:

Thank you kindly, P-90!
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:25pm P-90:

Personally, never dug how gefilte smelt.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:26pm JakeGould:

@glenn: Cod, whitefish or pike… That is gefilte fish. And it smells bad, but it’s my people’s food.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:27pm glenn:

i do love smoked whitefish. yummy.
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:28pm P-90:

Met Abe V. once.. He smelt kinda nice, citrus with gentle tones of leather and musk. Yves San Laurent for men, I think.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:29pm JakeGould:

I love smoked whitefish as well… But I grew up seeing those silvery eyes looking back at me from the appetizing deli case… Haunts me… That and beef tongue in the windows of butcher shops…
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:29pm JakeGould:

Abe Vigoda has a nice musk to him? Who knew.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:30pm glenn:

he was a muskfish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:30pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm away for the next two shows. My fill-in for next Sunday (2/15) will be Faye, and the Sunday after (2/22) it will be Ira.
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:31pm P-90:

Yes, a very natty, we'll turned-out gentleman, our Abe.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:31pm JakeGould:

Muskfish love.
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:32pm sugarwolf:

The only people who ate gefilte fish at holiday dinners were my step-uncle and my WASPy mother
  Sun. 2/8/15 5:32pm P-90:

Faye, Ira, yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:33pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: I know!
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:33pm JakeGould:

My parents were old, so we had some Mrs. Alders or Rokeach in the refrigerator… Whatever was on sale that week.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:34pm JakeGould:

Right now I need a big tub of natural decongestant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: You mean like a neti pot big enough for your whole body to soak in?
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:36pm Peanut Gallery:

What a beautiful show. Thanks GF!
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:38pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: Yeah… I think I should check out the “Beyond” part of “Bed, Bath & Beyond” to see if they carry that.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:39pm JakeGould:

And on topic: This is a lovely instrumental show so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Peanut Gallery: Thanks! This is where today's show just happens to be leading me. (If you quite sensibly presume it's the other way around, you'd be mistaken.)

sounding great in London - perfect Sunday night sounds x

Joe Bataan is just right for a cold, snowy day. I played him on my show this past Wednesday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@Peanut Gallery: That's quite lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Wendy: And I ate cheese just yesterday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:52pm Gaylord Fields:

@Wendy: Joe Bataan brings to mind standing on a fire escape in Spanish Harlem on a warm summer evening.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:53pm Wendy del Formaggio:

The coincidences are astounding!
Ah yes, I agree with your imagery. And I love it. Now I'd like a lemonade.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:54pm glenn:

aren't all summer evenings in n.y.c. warm?
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 5:55pm JakeGould:

Some summer evenings can be chilly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: And some can be hotter than hell.

evenings here start to get pretty cool around the middle of august.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 5:59pm glenn:

of course, compared to today, it would be sweltering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 5:59pm Adrian in London:

Hello from chilly London. You're soundtracking my somewhat 'in wine' Sunday night. Well done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:01pm Gaylord Fields:

@Adrian in London: Wine is a common enhancement for this radio show, even in other time zones.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 6:03pm Mugsy:

So nice to hear you tonight Gaylord.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Adrian, I miss your city a lot :( tell it I said hi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:03pm Adrian in London:

@Gaylord "Hic!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:05pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: As do I. So much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:05pm Adrian in London:

@Bronwyn Well, Bronwyn, it's not all it's cut out to be, but it *is* London. For example, today, people were made to queue to get on the reduced train service out of Victoria. But I did see Calexico at a 150-people show at Rough Trade Records this week, so you take the rough with the smooth…
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aww, such a nice version of my favorite Buddy Holly song!
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 6:06pm glenn:

one of my fave buddy tunes. syd straw and joe ely do a great version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...okay - must get on the comments 'cause
- BUDDY HOLLY LIVES.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn: Seriously, we have to stop loving the same things.

Naw, carry on loving.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

:D Great minds think alike Gaylord!
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Like Vashti Bunyan, she's the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:12pm Gaylord Fields:

That's not fair, Bronwyn, because I've been playing this record a lot, so you can figure out I also love it.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 6:13pm glenn:

b.t.w., as a sort of continuation from todd's playlist yesterday, here's what clem cattini has to say about joe meek - "Joe may have been a genius with his strange noises and all that, but musically he was a moron. He was tone deaf, and we [the Tornados] never got the credit we deserved for the production". of Telstar."
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Haha, fair enough.
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Glenn: Have you ever heard Joe's crazy tone deaf demo tape for Telstar? It's hysterical
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 6:15pm glenn:

no. i'd love to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: Listening to those Joe Meek demos, Clem is on to something. The Tornadoes definitely gave a few sow's ears some heavy tailoring.

  Sun. 2/8/15 6:24pm P-90:

Heard a lot of B&S on FMU in the last few days, are they in the New Bin with a reissue or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:25pm dale:

tom rush or scott walker - who's version is better? but who wrote it, gaylord
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:26pm Adrian in London:

@P-90 They've got a new album out.Plus vinyl rereleases too. Still can;t beat the early EPs, I reckon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:26pm dale:

...and driving wheel is one of my absolute favorite songs.
  Sun. 2/8/15 6:28pm Stuart rose:

Peanut Gallery, I love that ouija board metaphor.

Gaylord- so, you're going to be out for 2 weeks.
Did you clear that with us?
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:28pm JakeGould:

@P-90: Yup, new B&S release. pitchfork.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:29pm dale:

damn - fine mix with this charlie rich
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Dale: I vote for the Walker Brothers version but then I'm biased cause I love Scott Walker a lot...
Avatar    Sun. 2/8/15 6:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Partially because he and I have something in common: we both have the same name as a prominent, widely hated conservative politician.

- great song; prefer the stark acoustic version - but this is good & interesting...& of course a serious departure from most of Geddy Lee's vocals on Rush tracks ..., ..., ...

'life has it's little ups and downs' is a fine tune from the silver fox

@Stuart rose: Gulp! But I am leaving you in very capable hands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:32pm Adrian in London:

Does anyone object if I self-promote something I did in connection with an amazing Dominique A video? I loath show-offs but it may be interesting to people here…
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:33pm Gaylord Fields:

@hortense: Good morning to you!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:39pm Adrian in London:

@Gaylord Thanks! My wife and I have started a new blog about marvellous people in showbusiness, and this week I've interviewed Emma Solal, who's currently doing a theatre show of Françoise Hardy songs in Paris, and also published an interview with Odile Gheysens, an aerial dancer who performs in the stunning video for the new Dominique A track Au Revoir Mon Amour. It can all be found at thewidowstanton.com

@Adrian in London: Thanks for the info. And thanks for asking if it was appropriate for you to plug it.

Yes, thank you Gaylord! I listen almost every week but rarely get a chance to live. Always enjoy your selections!

@Spaniel: I'm happy you're enjoying the real-time version. Thanks for checking in!

@dale: I'm a HUGE Charlie Rich fan! Could Margaret Ann Rich be the best spouse/songwriter -- even better than Sonny Bono?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:52pm Adrian in London:

Thanks Gaylord. I saw Dominique A playing with the wonderful Françoiz Breut at Dingwalls in London years ago but I've never seen him do his own show. May have to go to Paris in spring,especialy if Odile is performing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/8/15 6:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Adrian in London: I would love to see a Francoise tribute! Perhaps Paris is is my future, as if I need an excuse.
