Listener comments!

  9:08am GUMBY:

Ah, my favorite radio program starting with the Friday AM jump blues. NICE!
  9:09am Lil Buddy:

Oh happy Friday
  9:10am north guinea hills:

morning everyone! nothing like wfmu fridays to coast into the weekend!
  9:13am Oliver:

Hey Doug -- Lord B's 102nd B'day tomorrow -- celebration @ Bowery Poetry Club Monday @7pm -- Amram, Prof. Corey, Tom Calagna, etc. 308 Bowery bet Houston/Bleecker 212-614-0505
  9:15am spaniel:

hell and good AM. couldn't agree more w/north guinea hills. great way to start the day and weekend eve. you're waking me up this AM for sure.
  9:16am Paul Sherratt:

Well should I have had that afternoon coffee ? I don't think so !
  9:16am Parq:

Oh yeah, "Chicken Astronaut"! What a great nutty treat for this depressing morn.
  9:20am Paul Sherratt:

Love that McCracklin voice.
  9:25am Jim:

i really love getting up early at 6 and getting into the day with this show. Potato Salad is totally doing the trick today!
  9:36am Sur:

Wow! Doug, you're my hero AGAIN! Cal Tjader in the morning ¡Ay bendito! Better than a double espresso! ¡Wepa!
  9:36am Paul Sherratt:

I'm a sucker for that bit in the Buena Vista film when the camera circles around Omara Portuondo's duet with Mr Ferrer.

( I know, I should know better ! )
  9:39am Paul Sherratt:


How does that " Ay bendito " translate ? I fancy using it sometime !
  9:39am Doug:

That scene in Buena Vista with camera swirling around Omara and Ibrahim was AMAZING! What a thrill to get such an intimate looksee inside the famed Egrem studios. Next to Muscle Shoals in Alabama and Electric Ladyland in NYC, Egrem probably pumped out more vital music than any on the planet. Ayiii!
  9:44am Hector:

Paul, you could translate "ay bendito" to something similar to "My God" or "Holy God" or similar, although the religious meaning is almost lost and nowadays is used everytime in spanish as an exclamation remark!
  9:45am c:

bendito literally means blessed. but the exact meaning would probably fluctuate in usage. probably not inaccurate to use in place of "damn" in the non-pejorative sense. but something like "oh lord" perhaps in other cases. disclaimer: i'm 2nd generation cuban not linguist 8)
  9:45am Hector:

Good comment, C
  9:47am c:

likewise 8)
  9:47am Paul Sherratt:

Antonio Machin, ay bendito ! ( Ese hombre es un diablo ! )
  9:50am pat:

Ay bendito! what good music.
  9:50am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks Hector, thanks c, what a translation service, oh lawdy !
  9:50am hector:

Antonio Machin was a superstar in Spain during years, when he was old, singing boleros (probably with Nat King Cole they were the kings), but his production from cuba from 1930´s is absolutely better, with lots of sexual references!
  9:59am Lil Buddy:

Got any Bhundu Boys???
  10:02am Doug:

Bhundu Boys are great but they got left home. Could only fit in so much. Good stuff coming up...
  10:03am Lil Buddy:

Well, I'm not gonna complain, these selections are prime!
  10:04am Paul Sherratt:


I had a copy of " Nat King Cole En Espanol " stolen while I was in Barcelona. I wondering now if it was actually an act of kindness ?
  10:06am hector:

Paul, probably it was an act of kindness... Look, I LOVE the jazz side of Nat King Cole with his trio, but his boleros in spanish they were awful!
  10:13am Cecile:

This soccer song is amazing!
  10:15am Doug:

Cole didn't even make a stab at attempting a half-assed Spanish accent (like yours truly!)
  10:16am north guinea hills:

i concur w/ cecile's statment, this is rad!
  10:16am Cecile:

Yow. That sounds dire.

You know, if you had "Say Hey Willie" floating around, that might be nice to hear what with the beisbol starting and whanot.
  10:17am Cecile:

  10:18am north guinea hills:

jejeje!, this is cracking me up! awesome!
  10:20am lil buddy:

Ah, the Real Sounds .... sooo good.
  10:21am Cecile:

Come on Dynamos!
  10:22am Carmichael:

Good morning Doug and bloggers. Great playlist so far!

Love that Braz soccer music. Homem Gol!
Nat Cole's piano trio was brilliant. Otherwise, I think he sounded like a pre-Johnny Mathis.
I missed Jimmy Preston, dammit.
Listening to this tune, I would love to hear a follow of Jorge Ben or Mighty Sparrow.

But it's not about me. Dammit again.

  10:22am c:

  10:26am Tinyfolk:

This Valentino track sounds great. Love the soca.
  10:42am Tinyfolk:

That song was gorgeous!
  10:46am Wes:

Thanks to Doug, a new appreciation for 60s Indonesian pop has been born. "The Steps" are now on my must-find-LP list.
  10:53am Listener Dave from NH:

I feel bad for John Yoo - every time I see him on Frontline, I'm struck by how dead inside he looks.
I feel worse about what he's sanctioned, mind you.
  11:00am Doug:

How many are dead on the outside because of Yoo. And Feith. And Wolfowitz. And Addington. And on and on.

When will their judgment at Nuremberg come?
  11:08am north guinea hills:

i've been waiting to hear karen daulton, now i'm glad i have! and i can never get enough trader horne! thanks!
  11:09am Listener Dave from NH:

I say he looks dead inside because I think he's internalized the fact that the people coming to him are so cynical and bloodthirsty that it wouldn't matter whether he said yes or no. He realized he was there as a rubber stamp, so might as well stamp away.
He may as well be a character on The Wire (consigned to the fact that they're a gear in the machine that's chewing him up), except that the indifference of these paper-pushers just doing their job has lead to so much suffering.
I've heard people int he administration say "history will be the judge" when pressed about the abysmal state of Iraq, public sentiment or what have you.
I also hope that there's a judge in the future for so many so high in government.
  11:15am Carmichael:

If you believe in any type of post-mortem accounting of your deeds, religious or otherwise, then you know that this administration will suffer appropriately.

And that makes me happy.
  11:18am Doug:

From your lips to (I guess, quite literally) God's ear.
  11:20am Listener Dave from NH:

I take a small amount of solace in that, but it'd take an administration that did its level best to live by the golden rule to make me happy.
This track's a monster!
  11:30am GUMBY:

Avante Jazz: Expanding the mind beyond the politics of human confines since the age of Trane.
  11:34am jonathan:

re: post mortem

it's so maddening that they think just the opposite.
maddening, i say!
  11:43am g:

and I definitely don't buy the idea that Yoo et al are just going along with the Bush administration. Yoo, especially, is a true believer of the first order and is on record pre-Bush with his extremely expansive views of executive power, which, after all, is in many ways the root of the problem--all of these people want the US run as an empire and they want to serve an emperor. Even worse, they want to serve this particular emperor we have been enduring for 7 years, i.e. Cheney.
  11:46am north guinea hills:

wow, this is oddly linearly "coherent" for SME
  11:47am jonathan:


well stated.
  11:56am Cecile:

Nice play on "alexander's ragtime band"
  12:00pm ste:

nice shout out to your parents
  1:38pm listener rey:

Thanks for the mention this AM. Glad you're enjoying the disc. Great show as usual. Potato Salad will be in heavy rotation this weekend at the Cruz household.
  8:52pm thatcher:

Doug -
That Dalton/folk women set was just sublime. Like drinking homemade yogi tea in the kitchen of some Hampshire County group house, w or w/o the blue dragon!
As always, the benchmark.
  8:12pm Rob Eyre:

Chimurenga music for Zimbabwe till the Monster Mugabe feels his SHAME. One-two One-two to Moses Chunga
