Listener comments!

  9:20am jonathan:

good friday, doug.
  9:25am Paul Sherratt:

At New Orleans' Jazz & Heritage Fest there used to a T-Shirt with the wise words " If In Doubt Head For The Gospel Tent " well I believe you can adopt that just a little for radio by exclaiming " If In Any Doubt, Bring On The Cubans ! "
  9:31am Doug:

Good Good Friday and Happy Purim to all believers and people who look like believers!
  9:36am Paul Sherratt:

And Happy Purina to any pets who may be listening in !

( Now where IS that Eddy Arnold LP I had the other day ... )
  9:39am Radio fan in NYC:

good show Doug, your music is -as the kids say - "on hit" today. I feel like you really relate to me and my unique musical tastes as a New York City listener. It really sounds like you know me, your audience, your commmunity. Frankly it sounds like you spend at least 30% of your time in the "community" to tap into my demographic- Good job! Good radio!
  9:42am William:

Turning on WFMU and there he is ... mr. Fats. Excellent.
  9:46am Wes:

Good show, Doug. Trying very hard to keep the sound down and still hear it over the guy working beside me watching DVDs at FULL volume...
  9:46am ratbone:

been listening for a few years now and always expect and find new music to enjoy. your musical chops, sir, are impeccable, imho anyway. that said would you give a bit more info on perez p cd referenced in last break. seems like playlist not forthcoming on that subject. thanks, r
  9:54am Doug:

  9:55am Paul Sherratt:


This may help - a link to the Bear Family page for Mr Prado's recording :
  9:55am Bad Ronald:

Diggin the mood
  10:07am Cecile:

Oh, foo. Missed Machito!
  10:18am Paul Sherratt:

" Rockin' Charlie Faircloth " ... excellent.
  10:26am ADM:

Re: Obama's speech. Hogwash.
  10:26am Parq:

Doug, late loggin on, just wanted to say I dug the cowboy music about a half hour ago. Always had a soft spot for this great little subgenere of American pop music.
  10:27am Hugo from Bergen:

Back on the West Coast, as it were, from a brief, but action-packed trip to the East Coast. Got to see the station, Brooklyn Bridge, Bergen Street (of course) in the company of the Drummer and assorted family members. Not to forget the pilgrimage to the DMG and to the holy grail of the Village Vanguard to catch the Marilyn Crispell Trio! A merry time was had by all!
  10:32am Doug:

And Hugo left me with enough music to share over the air to last well into Obama's second term. Thanks Hugo!!!
  10:35am Paul Sherratt:

And Hugo from Bergen your note reminds me that we probably won't be hearing Ronnie Dawson's " Action Packed " on BBC radio any time in the near future ...
  10:43am Brian Sanders:

Wot, no Listener Hour, Hugo?
Dig, Massive Attacks remix of Mustt, Mustt.
It's cold, wet & windy here in the UK
  10:43am ADM:

W.R. Hearst! W.R. Hearst! Yellow radio!! Good music though....
  10:49am Hugo:


but possibly on another station (unless Charlie G can be persuaded?)
  10:50am Doug from the D:

God, I love Nusrat so much.
  11:02am Ted from Baltimore:

So much music, so little time. I generally think that the Afterlife would be a bore, but maybe not if Doug was spinning the tunes.
  11:21am Paul Sherratt:


Here's one tune that's suitable for both before and after - The Tamlins version of R. Newman's " Baltimore "

( PS. Can anyone explain why I enjoy UK folk songs so much more when broadcast from the US ??? )
  11:34am Zach in Philly:

TLTC -- Yes!-)
Really been enjoying everything but this is the cherry for me.
  11:40am Paul:

Laura Vierish, Tucker Martinezish...! Ok. So Please play some Thao Nguyen. From either like the Linen or We Brave Bee stings
  11:41am ADM:

But! Do you have Thai Elephant Orchestra 2? I can recommend it.
  11:46am Ted from Baltimore:

Thanks for the tip, Paul! I will definitely look it up. Of course, that song isn't terribly popular with our local civic boosters, but alas it's no less true now than it was 30 years ago.
  11:47am jonathan:

office boy is blowing my mind.
  11:52am Parq:

At least some of the Thai Elephant stuff is available for download on the label's website.
