Listener comments!

  9:10am Swami:

Mahrnin' Doug. Good way to kick off the beginning of the end of the week.
  9:16am fishmonkeystew:

Gooooood morning Doug! Go ska!!!
  9:25am Hugo:

That is one super record and so was "Super Ape". My copy of "Return" is slightly warped. You never know with these JA pressings.
  9:27am dc pat:

did he just say "Johnny Walker with tea"?
  9:29am Bad Ronald:

Dunno DCP, but I'll try one...
  9:35am Parq:

Doug, thanks for that great old novelty jazz song. Hugo, a lot of FMU listeners are slightly warped, so that works out just fine.
  9:38am dc pat:

hey, did Diane get diane'd yesterday? I missed the show.
  9:40am bzul:

Not only warped, I'm scratched up, my RPMs ain't so steady and I skip a LOT.

And thanks for eminently quotable lyrics once again today, Doug.
  9:43am Bad Diane:

No DCP it was not the Diane-fest that we were promised. Gonna have to have a word w/Mr. D!!
  9:47am dc diane:

Yeah REAlly! I couldn't make it because, guess what, I was coming to this place and listening to the radio and researching 60's garage bands and sub-atomic physics and posting comments, when it turns out, I was suppose to be doing this thing called "werk". Took up all my time yesterday...
  9:51am Bad Diane:

You missed a pretty good show though. Lots of NYC Hardcore!
  10:08am Cecile:

It was pretty good.
I gotta say, I'm more partial to the Midwest stuff myself. Cows and beer and all that.... Diane Kreuzen and the lot...
  10:10am Cecile:

who else does Harina? It sounds very familiar
  10:11am Hugo:

Latest discovery re. Latin music: Cumbia! Must explore further ...
  10:12am Cecile:

Of course you must know it from Cumbia and Jazz Fusion by Mingus, right Hugo?
  10:14am paulthepostman:

Salutations all and one... something up the list re scotch and tea? Winter was the only time the old man had whiskey in the house, splashed generously in a hot cuppa. Am continuing the tradition; he always took his doctor's flu prescriptions to the off-license this time of year and I swear by tea and scotch and three ibuprofen, a most delicious paregoric! Sniff.
  10:16am Bad Ronald:

Didn't Sid Vicious do Harina? I believe it killed him.
  10:17am Cecile:

Bad Ron, you need to take your act on the road. ;D

PTP, I should do that. I am still fighting this stupid cough. I think I have walking pneumonia, but maybe some hot booze will chase it off.
  10:19am Bad Ronald:

Hah Cecile, I do hope you feel better soon!
  10:22am Cecile:

thanks, you, me, Mr. Cecile and my workmates agree with you!
  10:22am bzul:

Yes, poor Floyd, past Paper Doll and on his way to In Every Dream Home a Heartache.
  10:23am M:

Hello Doug et. al.!

Today is my birthday (fantastic!). My plans for this morning are to make the best danceable playlist ever, to be played during tonight's party.

I can't imagine a better place to come for extra inspiration than here. So, does anyone have any stellar suggestions for that one song that can't be excluded?

Wonderful show, as always, of course.
  10:25am paulthepostman:

Cecile, sensible Neanderthal man would never set off without a pouch of mouldy bread in his waistcoat pocket. He knew noth'n about penicillin but he knew what worked. I guess the alcohol kills off the stomach bugs...
  10:28am PMD:

What WILL we do when we can't play our phonographs no more? Good thing they're releasing on vinyl again.
  10:29am annie:

wow, 10:30 already... hi all
  10:29am Cecile:

That's a good idea. I'll have some lovely Gorgonzola at dinner tonight with a slug of brandy alongside...

Although, who knew that Neanderthals dressed so nattily?
  10:30am annie:

good thing i bought a battery operated portable turntable at a yard sale.. even plays 78s!!
  10:34am Cecile:

I want to own my own cow

Annie, you are so resourceful!
  10:35am GP:

Morning all, and Happy Birthday M.
  10:36am scott:

I want a cow ,too Happy Friday to all!!!
  10:37am Bob:

I'd like to request some Steve Bernstein music in a regular set sometime before the next talkover music review...
  10:38am paulthepostman:

Doug, apparantly the 3 Stouges put out an anti Hitler tune back in '47? After returning from Palladium shows in London.
  10:38am Cecile:

M - happy birthday

I would say that you must include Low Rider by War. One of the top 5 songs sung in the English language.
  10:39am This guy:

While we're on the subject of the Cold War:
  10:45am dc pat:

man, this "werk" thing is really getting in the way...
  10:45am annie:

cecile, it was one of those gut-reaction whims.. there it was and it was only 50 cents!! wooohoo! half-way through comment!
  10:45am RustyNailStudio:

Can you please post the link to the site you downloaded the South African Jazz from?
  10:46am ?:

Always remember J Airplane's 'chickens 'n farms 'n things?! Particularly when you talk of logs on the fire and cold frames, Annie!
  10:47am paulthepostman:

? was me, oops
  10:48am Doug:

Hey hey, happy B-day to you M!!

RustyNailStudio, that blog is here;

The downloads at Matsuli Music are limited. Fingers Crossed that it's still available...
  10:49am dc pat:

back to the scotch thread: I saw this Mary Tyler Moore show a while back where Mr. Grant was drinking straight scotch out of a coffee cup and he told Mar it was Irish Coffee.
  10:49am M:

It's still available -- as of 5 seconds ago.

Thanks for the link, Doug!
  10:54am annie:

?-it's funny living here now that winter is knocking at the door. the lady at the foot of the hill is annoyed at me due to the fact that i am not able to get the truck all the way up the icy hill. cripe.. still in all, i'm prety happy here.. and i got a digital camera, so will take a pic of the cold-frame. which, today, is at 35.. sunny and 25 out.
DCpat- iloved lou grant.. he was the best character on that show..what a ground-breaker it was
  10:56am dc pat:

annie: what do you have in the cold frame now? --where do you live again? Yeah, Mr. Grant made that show.
  10:57am paulthepostman:

Every hill should have a Troll lady living at the bottom!
  10:58am Parq:

Mr. Grant to Phyllis's daughter: "You mean if you want to have milk with your cookies, you can have milk. And if I want to have milk with my cookies, I can have scotch."
  10:59am annie:

pat-i'm in delaware county ny. near binghamton. all that's in there now are hopes and dreams. will set seed in march or so.. parq- he was a riot..
  11:00am paulthepostman:

Annie -- We had an old sea witch living beneath us once, always moaning about us not carrying the push-chair all the way up the stairs.
  11:01am dc pat:

Ted Baxter was pretty great too. That must have been the first show my parents let me stay up and watch. They were feminists I guess.

I miss the snow down here in crappy DC
  11:01am Carmichael:

The funeral of Chuckles the Clown was one of the best TV moments ever.
  11:03am Cecile:

This is the part of the show where I have no idea what you are talking about.

ITA, Carm.
  11:03am annie:

doug, this had been a wonderful show, once again. i love this station. that early stuff got me off my ass and cleaning, sweeping.. got THAT over with. hey cecile: did you know that dairy promotes mucus production? PTP-my signif other says to let her be and walk up, but he is only here every two weeks or so. this will be a test of my pacifistic, yet searching-for-justice personality-type..
  11:07am Carmichael:

Again?!? :-)

Chuckles was the beloved host of WGN's kids show. When he died, everyone wept openly at the funeral except MTM, who had a sudden giggling fit that horrified all in atendance.
  11:07am GP:

This Winston Ngozi cut sounds great in the headphones. A nice choice.
  11:08am Cecile:

Yeah, I should not try the gorgonzola. I'll see if I can go out for miso soup and noodles tonight.
  11:10am Carmichael:

Cecile, add a shot of warm sake as a Nyquil-style sleep aid.
  11:11am ?:

Great stuff now!
This is Mongezi Feza with Johnny Dyani
  11:11am dc pat:

Cecile: don't forget the brandy though...
  11:11am annie:

miso is the best answer for almost all illness and dis-ease. i love the sake add-on...
  11:11am mike cooper:

Hey Doug - NOW you play Mongezi - just as i have to go out in the rain...:-))
  11:12am Duncan:

There are a couple of other mp3's from this album on destination out
  11:16am Doug:

Mike, no worries, more Mongezi is always around the corner with me.
  11:19am Hugo:

Those clips are from vol.1. What Doug played was from vol.2, and then there's the third one they did together.

As for Mongezi, got some unreleased stuff hidden away in a funny place ...
  11:22am annie:

i loved the click!!!! you did great!
  11:23am Hugo:

Dudu sure enough clicks with me!
  11:26am annie:

i love tha various videos of miriam makeba singing the"click" song over the years. .. and her explanation why it's called "the click song"
  11:40am Cecile:

Doug do you have a set of those wonderfully tweedy, peat-steeped British folk songs you are wont to play? I'd love to hear some if it's in the game plan...
  11:42am paulthepostman:

Internatty provider says I'm gobblin' up too many giggadoodahs, having to downsize to the 32k mps stream, poo poo
C - me too doug
  11:42am Doug:

Oh Cecile! I left my Shirley Collins/Martin Carthy/Watersons/Dick Gaughan/etc. set at home!

Peet-steeped forever!!
  11:48am Carmichael:

A pox on you, Doug. BTW, check out the Richard Thompson/Philip Pickett comp "The Bones of All Men". If you like British Country music like you described, you'd like this one.
  11:50am Jonathan Marx:

Os Atonais = chocante!
  11:52am Hugo:

Nothin' better than gobblin' up giggadoodahs!
  11:54am Cecile:

oh, well, Doug. this Brazilian set was pretty wonderful.
  11:55am annie:

cecile, feel better. you have the weekend to recuperate..doug, great show. thanks
  11:58am Ike:

Paul the Postman, if you're stuck with 32k, check out the AAC+ stream. It sounds far better than the 32k MP3 stream. Use with Foobar2000 or Winamp.
  11:59am paulthepostman:

cheers Ike
