Listener comments!

  12:26pm Mike Lupica:

The first time I heard that Brother Ah piece was while stuck in a huge traffic jam crossing the Brooklyn Bridge on a crappy, rainy night. Brian Turner ended his show with it and the gathered sounds of the music, the vocalists, the rain whipping against the windshield, and the hum of the engine had a pretty profound effect on me. Definitely one of the best radio moments I've ever experienced.

More recently, I tactically employed the same song to freak out a plumber who was working in my apartment. He'd already ripped me off by sabotaging one thing after fixing the initial problem. Not wanting to give him any reason to want to make a return visit to my apartment, I cranked up "Love Piece" to a more-than-comfortable level and peered (weirdly) at him while he worked. Not surprisingly, he fixed my sink and was out of there in a jiffy, never to return.

A truly versatile track. Thanks for spinning it today, Doug!
  2:51pm Doug:

Maybe your plumber was just rushing out to buy himself a copy of the album. (Blessedly, it was reissued on disc a couple of years ago.) Of course, in his hurry, he probably caused accident jamming up traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Yeah, I bet that's just what happened.


  4:42pm Skylar:

Hi Doug, isn't that funny i also had to leave 2 minutes into Brother ah's Love piece just like Mikes plummer.:-)

I like most of Max Roach recordings especially when he played with Charlie Barnett. Sorry he has been ill.

Found my self dancing the charleston or something like that while listening to Montana Slim and Warshboard tunes. As usual good show.

RIP John Robert Bradley.

Have a great day Doug.

  5:12pm Doug:

Max Roach is, for me, the moon and stars. The musical drummer who ever lived. I once spent the most magical afternoon in his apartment. I had gone to do an interview and, meeting me at the door, the first words he says are, "You must be Doug. You just gotta come in and have some apple pie. And there I was, sitting in Max Roach's kitchen eating apple pie. It only got better from there...

Great day to you Sky!
  6:41pm Skylar:

Wow, apple pie with Max Roach, doesn't get any better than that. He sounds like a warm kind gentleman. The closest i came to an interview was accidently sticking chewing gum on Tina Turners nose, don't ask long story. :-)

Good for you Doug i know it is a day you will never forget.

Hey, how was the pie?

Catch you next Friday.

  2:29pm Doug:

My afternoon with Max was easily one of the greatest experiences of my life. And the pie was delish.
  12:15pm Hugo:

Yes, I did enjoy brother Ah and Max for sure. But the true novelty was Kishore Kumar yodelling. More Bollywood yodellers! And I'm starting to appreciate Perez Prado and the mambo heroes of yesteryear (on the regular playlist during a two-week vacation in Spain last month)
  1:12pm Doug:

I have it on the original soundtrack, but that Kishore Kumar track also appears on the fab compilation The Rough Guide to Yodel (sort of an audio companion to ex-FMU dj Bart Plantenga's book "Yodel-Ay-E-Ooo). To my ears, the mambos Perez Prado squeezed out during his Mexico City sojourn are among the raunchiest sounds every recorded, and that's just the instrumentals. The Rev-Ola collection I played on this show was among my favorite releases of '04. Looky here:
  1:41pm Thatcher:

Lovely Dixieaires. Sounds pretty close to the Alphabetical Four song(and I can't but notice the song title). All this said mostly to refer to the film "Paradise in Harlem" which has the Alphabetical Four playing a quartet of card sharks in a rooming house and they sing (like angels) a lovley secular song. Worth a gander, for sure.
  2:03pm Doug:

Hey Thatcher!
I have added "Paradise" to my Netlfix queue. Thanks for the tip.
