Should Mark Seridan (Nightmare in The Desert) be
Great site, however it would be nice if in addition to listening to the whole show individual tunes could be accessed too.
Lisa in Toronto:
I am guessing that the delicate cylinders/78s and the machines don't really like cold weather, so they may need to stay inside more these freezing weeks. Maybe high heat and humidity are equally dangerous however? Idle speculation as I enjoy another program - thanks!
More Cornet Solos would be great.
Neat record about the ship "Oregon," with simulated gunfire--in 1902! astonishing. in a similar vein, there exists, in this big world, a single-sided 78 from 1906, called "The Destruction of San Francisco," made to give the rest of America a glimpse of the tragedy, decades before radio, much less TV. it included, somehow, a sound effect of an earthquake, and sounds of buildings being demolished. heard it in the 1970's, couldn't believe it. still can't.
James from MN:
I love it. Thank you for playing those old good records. I especially like the preacher and the bear and ticklish reuben( sentimental value) I would like to pass these songs on to my kids by singing bedtime songs.
