So, so sad about David Berman, RIP. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:01pm Sam Segal:

Me too, Jon. Glad you're here to celebrate him with me, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:02pm Asheville Jon:

Hey Sam. Been anticipating your show ever since I heard the sad news.
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 9:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Sam. Thanks for the shout for Ras last week. I was listening, but had no communicator.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:09pm melinda:

@Asheville Jon me too, hoped Sam would have something lined up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:12pm Asheville Jon:

before his death, I was hoping that this show was going to be a grand discussion of the Purple Mountains tour which would have been going on now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:15pm melinda:

I love his voice on this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:16pm Sam Segal:

Melinda and Franco. Thanks for being here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:16pm Sam Segal:

"My favorite singers couldn't sing." I think that's a Berman lyric.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:19pm melinda:

@Sam it is. I think I first learned of him from a local DJ who was inspired by that lyric to do a show called Vocalists Who Can't Sing.
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 9:19pm northguineahills:

Nice to hear David Berman, too bad he never played w/ David Berhman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:23pm Sam Segal:

Haha, NGH, that would've been fascinating. Berman could've done spoken word over Behrman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:24pm chresti:

Hi Horse, been listening
  Mon. 8/12/19 9:24pm ChrisFarrell:

Judging by what I am seeing David Berman has passed away.. his memory will never be replaced and his music lives on
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:25pm Sam Segal:

Very well said, Chris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:25pm Sam Segal:

Chresti!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:26pm Doug Schulkind:

So glad you are doing this, Sam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:27pm Sam Segal:

Couldn't not, Doug. Thanks for being here to sit Shiva with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Shiva Jews.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:33pm melinda:

San Francisco BC is one of the best songs ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:34pm Sam Segal:

Absolutely, Melinda. His absurdist narrative songs are some of my absolute favorites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:37pm melinda:

"Fist cuisine"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:40pm Sam Segal:

Ha! I was chuckling at that line specifically just now too, Melinda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:42pm melinda:

It sounds kind of like an effete version of tough-guy lingo
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 9:55pm northguineahills:

Johnny Paycheck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Another great American songwriter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:56pm Asheville Jon:

some nice words from Drag City today
www.dragcity.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 9:58pm Sam Segal:

Namedropping "Ladies Home Journal" seems like something David Berman would've pulled off as brilliantly as Johnny Paycheck did.
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 10:00pm northguineahills:

Sounds like Gina Bacon took over the controls (and I dig!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:01pm Asheville Jon:

gonna have to catch the rest of the show on the archives.
thanks for doing this tribute Sam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:02pm Sam Segal:

Thanks for being here, Jon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:03pm Asheville Jon:

sure thing Sam. have a good rest of the night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:08pm melinda:

Great Kinks song, I first heard Kirsty MacColl's version.
  Mon. 8/12/19 10:17pm Chuck:

I just love them Nashville Katz!!!
  Mon. 8/12/19 10:21pm Chuck:

I'm pretty sure that John Sebastian was Jewish... I know for sure that David Bromberg was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:23pm Sam Segal:

Chuck! Hey, maybe Lovin' Cohens was a Lovin' Spoonful side project.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:40pm melinda:

I didn't realize until recently that he spent part of his youth in Dallas. Fellow Texan, sort of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:41pm chresti:

I only became awares of Silver Jews, Purple Mountain, and David Berman in the last year or so while listening to WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:42pm Sam Segal:

@Melinda: Always loved his description of Dallas in that song..."A million steers [turned into] buildings made of mirrors."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:42pm chresti:

Aspects of his voice is reminding me of Johnny Cash
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:43pm Sam Segal:

If I've helped anyone discover David Berman, my job here is done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:43pm melinda:

@Sam totally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:46pm melinda:

@chresti I can hear that too. Though their voices are distinct from each other he reminds me of Lou Reed in that they are both weary-sounding talk-singers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:48pm melinda:

I remembered this line as "Squirrels in town from Connecticut, Just in time for Fall". I like the idea of squirrels on a leaf-peeping vacation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 10:49pm doctorjazz:

Hey, late to the Shiva, just recently heard Silver Jews on FMU as well, have to check out the music. Any pastrami left?
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

I will convert if pastrami is involved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:06pm Sam Segal:

Pastrami is always involved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:07pm Sam Segal:

You're right on time, Doc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:11pm Sam Segal:

David Berman's Jewish reading list: twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:13pm doctorjazz:

Bought Tanglewood Numbers after hearing it on FMU, but, being short on time and long on "new arrivals", haven't gotten to listen to it much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:14pm Sam Segal:

One of his absolute masterpieces. Great choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:16pm doctorjazz:

Just saw Betty LaVette this past Saturday, Montclair Jazz Festival, was a bit disappointing,have to say (but Eddie Palmieri,the closer,more than made up for it).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:17pm Sam Segal:

Apologies in advance for playing Kenny Chesney two times in one month, but Berman loved this song and so do I.
  Mon. 8/12/19 11:17pm ChrisFarrell:

Thanks for the GREAT show Sam. Gotta kick out early, big day tomorrow. See you next week
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:20pm Sam Segal:

Thanks, Chris! Really glad you were here for this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:25pm doctorjazz:

Interesting list, gave it a quick going through, he was really involved in his way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:34pm Sam Segal:

I loved his little descriptions. "If you trend hippie..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:36pm chresti:

Thanks Sam, going to hit the sack now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:37pm Sam Segal:

Thanks for being here, Chresti.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:44pm melinda:

Thanks Sam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:46pm doctorjazz:

thank you Sam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:49pm Sam Segal:

Thank you both!
Avatar Mon. 8/12/19 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Sam. I'm going to throw back a shooter of cough medicine for David, and call it a day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/12/19 11:55pm Sam Segal:

You've earned it, Franco.
  Mon. 8/12/19 11:58pm Carmichael in Portland OR:

Barely on time say heya Sam.
