Options Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt: Playlist from February 18, 2021 Options

Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

Your show will be the soundtrack for putting away my laundry. I'm gonna CRANK it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm rakka:

good evening all!
Avatar 8:13pm sinner:

I hate folding clothes but love clothes that are folded.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm loveless:

I love doing laundry and don't mind folding clothes. I HATE putting them away.
Avatar 8:14pm On the Yazoo:

He'll rent you one, until he gets yours fixed.. I bet.
Avatar 8:15pm sinner:

yazoo: go stand in the corner. I can vouch for the veracity of Union Springs Radio Shack promises. No beer for you. Eagle Scout? I bet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I don't mind doing laundry, but I procrastinate HARD on actually doing it. I like folding clothes and I like folded clothes. I really love clean clothes, unless it's clothes I wore to a bonfire. I don't like washing that aroma out.
Avatar 8:17pm sinner:

Having your own washer and dryer is real nice, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Wendy del Formaggio:

True. Right now I don't. So, the schlep is the reason for the procrastination.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We havin' a sin din?
We sure are!
Avatar 8:18pm Glorious Estephonic:

there are two out of tune pianos in my laundry room -- i wanna get lessons down there while everyone is doing their laundry and then have recital one day -- maybe when things get better
Avatar 8:19pm sinner:

And if you don't get them totally dry they get cruncy frozen?

Sin Din! Love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm rakka:

i like that peaceful mundanity you get to feel when folding clothes (as well as doing dishes). simple repetitions/actions. joy is in the work and all
Avatar 8:19pm sinner:

Ken: you know what Vladimir Putin's family reunions are called?

Avatar 8:21pm sinner:

Avatar 8:22pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I guess if I hung my clothes out on the line they'd freeze and get crunchy before they dried. For sure. It only got up to about 25 today.
Avatar 8:22pm sinner:

Made that up myself I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

That's the subject of a Legendary Stardust Cowboy song. "My Underwear Froze to the Clothesline." A classic.

  8:35pm tigeroe:

I waited a long long time for thursdays hope and pain...hello sinners
  8:36pm BenZ WPB:

In da house late but the main thing is I have made it to the service!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm mariano:

sinner: Sorry, no Yardi Gras report, lol. Been tucked away working. Plus it was too damn cold to go out on the day itself, which I'm sorta glad for, makes the cancellation easier.
Avatar 8:36pm coelacanth☯:

do you think they're absorbing everything in those books though?
Avatar 8:37pm sinner:

benz: never late here.

c-lo: you funny.
Avatar 8:38pm sinner:

UM: Is that right? I had no idea where I got it from.
  8:38pm P-90:

Sorry, running SO late and just tuned in a few minutes ago. Did I miss that scratchy record...?
Avatar 8:39pm sinner:

More scratchy to come. No worries.

Listener morphe' posted a link to some Yardi Gras houses — www.nola.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Aww. The photo of the phone room sure makes me nostalgic. I've spent many, many, many hours over at phones 1 through 3. I have even spent an hour or so in the co-star seat.
Avatar 8:40pm sinner:

Ssssssssssh. It's Jinx.

With the legendary gospel music missionary Lester of Mobile. He has a decorated pick up and passes out gospel CD-Rs to everyone he meets. He gave me a bunch of Candi Staton gospel CD-Rs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Uncle Michael:

I sat in that cohost seat when Brother Nutt had to cancel his trip north for unfortunate reasons.
Avatar 8:44pm sinner:

UM saved the day that day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Wendy del Formaggio:

That's right! In a top-secret location! That was a whole lotta fun. I'm still glad you invited me to co-pilot.

Born in 1941 was best friends with Sam Cooke. The Jackson 5 use to sit in on The Hightower rehearsals when they were on the road. He recorded an Album on Messiah Records. He had a group called Rapture: Johnson and Hightower (1988).
