Listener comments!

  9:23am Paul Sherratt:

I know they made those V-Discs to withstand heavy duty use but ...
  9:30am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Give Animal some.
  9:32am Garret:

tribal vibes...ooh nice!

RON PAUL 2008.
  9:35am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Paul has to move up to at least third in NH to stay in contention, IMO. Sadly, I don't think he will.
  9:37am Garret:

  9:38am Prince:

snake charmers for Ron Paul.

  9:51am Wes:

No one even mentioned RP's name from the little TV I switched around lastnight and this morning
  9:53am Prince:

yeah thats wack as hell. im feelin this indian music though.
  10:02am Vivian:

Love-love-LOVE this set!! Pulling my frustrated soul out of the ground..
  10:09am Vivian:


Out of left field question, is Gumnaam the film shown in the opening scene of Ghost World?
  10:13am Franz Mesmer:

Loved the Fats Waller and Edna Hicks earlier today. Death to Ron Paul!
  10:14am Listener Dave from NH:

Poor Ron Paul. He just wants to get rid of the UN and bring back the gold standard. Is that so crazy?
  10:16am seanh:

Imagine Ron Paulers, with the help of that Florida blimp, your candidate might reach 11%!

Obama is going to sweep NH/SC, and eventually super tuesday. Clinton's entitlement was just deflated. Things are good.
  10:17am Doug:

Vivian, yes yes yes! The Bollywood film clip shown at the beginning of Ghost World is the tune Jan Pehechan Ho from Gumnaam.
  10:18am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

After last night, I will give Obama consideration again, but I still am leaning towards Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Everybody mambo!
  10:18am seanh:

also, awesome show this morning :). The snake charmers tracks was absolutely stunning. Can't say the latin-lounge is my thing, but I'll stand by for something more my style.
  10:21am Cecile:

Just an idle thought - is El Cantante worth netflixing? Or am I just better off buying some CDs.
  10:21am seanh:

  10:23am Wes:

Obama's polished one-liners make me sick. Come to think of it, everyone makes me sick. The presidency should go to the person who wants it least.
  10:23am Paul Sherratt:

We're not exactly up-to-speed over here in the UK ... so Kinky Friedman isn't a candidate ?
  10:24am Cecile:

That would be me. But I decline. ;)
  10:26am jilda:

RON PAUL IS THE BEST CHOICE...unless you would like to
continue moving closer and closer towards communism.

  10:27am Matt:

I'd like to see El Cantante, but the idea of Mark Anthony as Hector Lavoe is kind of the idea of Ron Paul as president.....
  10:28am Cecile:

I didn't spend $10 on El Cantante knowing I could Netflix it for "free." But, but all means run don't walk out and scoop up some Hector Lavoe records. Brilliant, swinging and, of course, heartbreaking.
  10:30am Matt:

Yes, I love Hector Lavoe- yet another musical treasure that Doug turned me on to.
  10:30am Cecile:

Could you play some today, Doug?
  10:31am Dj LUKE:

nice tempo change

  10:32am Doug:

Cecile, I didn't bring any Hector with me today (and my set's about to end). Use the WFMU website to search one of my shows with Hector's "Periodico de Ayer" then listen to the archive. Stunning tune.
  10:33am Dj LUKE:

i like this color scheme on the playlist page, doug.
  10:34am Dj LUKE:

its very soothing.
  10:34am Cecile:

Thanks, Doug!!!!!!!!
  10:39am Bob:

I like the Bitman and Roban. I think we can assume that Beck is familiar with it.
  10:41am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

As Ron Paul supporter, there are two things that concern me about Ron Paul.

1) His stance on abortion. I agree with him that it's not a federal issue, but I disagree with his pro-life stance. Abortion is not a huge issue to me, but then I'm a guy.

2) His skepticism on evolution. I agree with him that it's a theory, but its a theory that has more evidence than creationism (intelligent design, etc.).

*muffles self on politics*

Bring on the kodo drummers!
  10:42am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Ack... issues not things.
  10:44am Dj LUKE:

president, Ron Paul
vice-pres, Hector Lavoe
  10:46am Dj LUKE:

Fania Allstars cabinet
  10:46am pat:

From DC.
Jeeze, I feel like I'm in a room of people wearing tan pants and pressed shirts. John Edwards is the only one who has any ideas who stands a chance. Nice work Doug.
  10:47am Dj LUKE:

Martin Luther King, Jr., secretary of state
  10:48am Dj LUKE:

uh, john edwards is communist
  10:59am pat:

ok tan pants
  11:07am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Tan pants? What is this the unoriginal insults board?
  11:21am Hugo from Bergen:

Thanks for the Shibusashirazu. Of course, the records do not capture the visual excitement of seeing them live. Very spectacular. Saw them here back in 2K.
  11:22am Parq:

Doug, who knew your listeners got so fired up by electoral polictics? Sorry, but I have no plans to put away my lapel button that says "Vote for the millionaire liar of your choice."
  11:25am north guinea hills:

i was going to say something along the same lines as Parq but he beat me to it.... mmmmm..., good music.....
  11:26am Bad Ronald:

I like girls.
  11:27am Cecile:

Bucket of Blood! That 's the greatest song.
  11:28am Parq:

Oh, and if Paul from the UK is still wondering about Kinky F, we should only be so fortunate. Bad Ron, I'm sure they're fond of you, too.
  11:30am k-rex:

I Kick It Root Down
I Put My Root Down

It's Not A Put Down
I Put My Foot Down
And Then I Make Some Love, I Put My Root Down
  11:31am Bad Ronald:

Thanks Parq.

You're too kind.
  11:33am Paul Sherratt:


I've always wondered about Kinky, but am I'm right in thinking that he's no millionaire ?
  11:43am Wes:

Parq, I had that button last election, it said "bones versus bones - take your pick" Kinky Friedman for Prez!! I doubt he's a millionare but he might be "in assets" kinda like Willie. His parents were rather wealthy but spent a good portion on charity.
  11:44am Parq:

Paul, my point exactly. It would be like if Wreckless Eric stood for PM. (Actually, I met W.E. while volunteering in the phone room a couple of years back, and there's plently he'll stand for.)
  11:44am Hugo from Bergen:

Ron Paul? A Texas Republican who supposedly wants to abolish the IRS and the Federal Reserve? So why is he running for the top job in the federation, I wonder?
  11:47am Trish:

  11:49am Cecile:

? and the Mysterians are teh awesome
  11:50am Bad Ronald:

I'd vote for Wreckless Eric!
  11:51am Doug:

Actually, that was the group Question Mark from Kenya!
  11:52am pat:

Ron Paul picked his planks out of a hat--one of his top issues "Home Schooling". What the f--? The guys a typical libertarian no-nothing. Hmm, Doug's been mysteriously quiet on the issue of electoral politics...
  11:54am Little Lumper:

Give the Drummer Some is the best radio music show in the known universe!
  11:54am Cecile:

Oh, geez...
they sounded pretty mysterian...
  11:58am Paul Sherratt:


Wreckless would make a fine UK ambassador, say to France ... we could save on costs too as I think he already lives there.

Now Kinky Friedman & Willie Nelson, that's the ticket !
  12:01pm Dj LUKE:

horray for one world government
horray for our collapsing currency
horray for welfare
horray for war
horray for the patriot act
horray for total government control

  12:04pm Hugo from Bergen:

Kinky appears to be endorsing Ron Paul (been peeking at the official RP site).

And NOW: Frank Wright on the Bryce show!
  4:18pm mike njtp:

doug great flowing show. loved the big sur vacation tale. ihavent been in that neck of the woods since 1971. lots of faded memories. sounds like heaven and your maine vacation spot sounds cool too. 2008 here we are! enjoy.
  5:37pm Doug:

2007 was a helluva year for my communing with frigid oceans: the Atlantic off Northern Maine in July and the Pacific at Big Sur in December. Bracing!
  4:36pm m:

Doug, does Charlie Palmieri play on "Que no Muera"? On my copy of the Montuno Sessions the song is listed as by Angelo Vaillant.
  8:19pm Doug:

You ask a good question. I downloaded the music from a site that had scant info. Pamieri is the most prominent name on the booklet cover and piano is prominent on the tune, so I surmised that Palmieri was present. I just found a page online ( that breaks down the track listings and personnel a bit more (confirming that Angela Vaillant is the vocalist on "Que no Muera"), but his vocal is the only credit given for that track. Whoops: Now I've found another page online ( that claims the track is by Vaillant with vocals by Mongo Santamaria! Anyone else with additional info, please set me straight.
