I miss the stories I heard before the show.

wow great hearing this!

Hello Becky. Listeners. Invisible friends. Did anyone get the Ken Burns set?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

High ballers and hay balers ... that's the ticket!
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:10pm Becky:

@BKoM I can commit some crimes and describe them to you if you would like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:11pm PigeonsAndRust:

When there's surface noise the music is probably going to be great! Howdy all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:11pm ultradamno:

Recording it now (and it plays again a couple of times)

Notes

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:12pm ultradamno:

Much more liberal use of the phrase "goat gland implant" than anticipated

It really should have been Ralph Peer's wife, not Sara Carter, singing that Single Girl, Married Girl song...24 kids, no wonder she looked glum in that pic
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:13pm The Butterman:

I’ve been Really moved by the Carter family piece in the doc.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:13pm Becky:

Sara had lots of her own reasons to be glum, but I hear you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:14pm ultradamno:

Did they never play Hank's "Why Don't You Love Me" or did I space it?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:15pm Becky:

@ultradamno the list of things not played is long. 16.5 hours for the whole of country music is a heavy task.
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:15pm Third World Man:

I don't think Sara was glum, when you listen to the music that was written.
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:16pm JakeGould:

This set is great. Crimes or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:17pm PigeonsAndRust:

I don't have a television but I hear tell they totally skipped over Vernon Dalhart
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:17pm ultradamno:

That's kind of a big one though (granted most of Hank's were, but...)
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:17pm Third World Man:

You can stream it online
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/18/19 8:19pm Smokestack:

It's been such a great documentary so far. The old photographs are stunning. And it was Hank's birthday yesterday! Woulda been 96. Crazy to think that he could potentially still be alive today like some of the other old timers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:19pm ultradamno:

And Hank died in transit too. Stay put, country singers!
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:20pm seedfriend:

Nice. I just watched the fund raise drive extended teaser format a hotel last weekend. Can’t wait to see the full version! Great show.
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:20pm Third World Man:

Becky Do you have the 1928 Bristol VA sessions?
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:20pm seedfriend:

In a hotel room
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:20pm Becky:

I "have" them in that I have access to them, yes.
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:21pm Third World Man:

would you like a digital copy?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:22pm ultradamno:

So was there any truth that Deford Bailey wouldn't learn ASCAP songs or was that as much fiction as the attached racist "lazy" trope?
Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:23pm Becky:

@Third World Man You know where to find me!
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:26pm Third World Man:

I think I need your wfmu email. MP3 or FLAC? Public domain but you know that.

There could/should be a whole episode about Turk vs. Nudie fashion.

Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:39pm Becky:

@ultradamno we get into that on the podcast actually!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:39pm Folsom:

@Third World Man are your versions different than the Bear Family release?
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:40pm The Butterman:

Oooh, what is Turk? I know nudie but not Turk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:41pm ultradamno:

Nathan Turk was another, somewhat similar tailor. He decked out the Maddox Bros.& Rose among others
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:42pm Third World Man:

isnt there supposed to be some kind of free speech exception for fleeting profanities in historical documentaries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/18/19 8:46pm Folsom:

@Third world man, just sent you an email through WFMU site. I see bear family also has johnson city compilation, have you heard that?

Avatar Wed. 9/18/19 8:48pm JakeGould:

Thank a couple of Jewish tailors who fled lives of persecution in Eastern Europe for country music fashion.
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:49pm Third World Man:

I don't think I have the bear family set digitized yet. I have it somewhere. I'll try to digitize it by next week.

So, tonight's episode is going to be Elvis/Patsy heavy, from the looks of it.

The first time I heard the term 'race records', being from Indy, I thought they were car records.
  Wed. 9/18/19 8:57pm Third World Man:

UDMO It's telling to listen to the Pat Boone versions of R&B.

Jake, we remember Nudie's , it was incredible. Boyfriend bought some boots there a couple years before it closed. A definite pilgrimage.
