  9:06am Bad Ronald:

Morning Doug!

Annie - re: 60's 70's lps - I'd be ecstatic!!!

Please let me know...

  9:07am Doug:

Extra prize in your Cracker Jacks, Thatch! Now share with your radio friends.
  9:07am annie:

word up BR, i'll email you! perhaps i might travel down to LI and blend a trip, so to speak.
  9:07am El Thatchmo...:

... and already engaged it posting audio down around Rancho Thatchmo. Be Forewarned!
  9:08am Parq:

Much as I love Hotrod's killer show, I always have to turn it off a few minutes early. It's not Friday without that seg from Nachem's outro to Doug's intro.
  9:08am Bad Ronald:

Cool, thanks, it'd be a pleasure to meet you!
  9:10am annie:

i could use a trip to the big apple. have to connect with my friend out in babylon...
  9:15am Bad Ronald:

Babylon's pretty far out there. I used to ride the LIRR some time back...
  9:16am El Thatchmo...:

I saw DINER, Doug. That's Gross!
  9:17am annie:

i'm looking forward to a city trip. and the gentle rock of the train has always soothed me. used to ride the LIRR alot when i was a child. and it passed right through our back yard..
  9:18am El Thatchmo...:

"A little Time will make me sad because now I am Satan!"
  9:20am Parq:

Doug, please excuse the crosstalk, the tunes are primo as usual. Annie, if you do come down to NYC, see, let us know you're coming and we'll figure out a way to connect.
  9:20am Bad Ronald:

Wow, didn't know you were from LI too! We used to flatten nickles on the tracks. I remember the smoking and the double-decker cars!
  9:22am Parq:

Ron, there are shiny new double deckers on the LIRR now.
  9:24am annie:

yeah, BR i was born in bay shore and spent the first 15 years of my life in northport. my parents were bohemians from greenwich village. my, how times have changed!yes parq, i will..
  9:24am Bad Ronald:

Way cool. Haven't been out there in a while. I gotta check them out!
  9:24am Parq:

There's a Brazilian 60s garage/powerpop comp? Where the heck is my credit card . . .
  9:25am oz:

great tunes nothing better than listening to brazil this early.
  9:27am Bad Ronald:

Funny, I've friends that lived in Bay Shore. Been there a lot!
  9:29am annie:

are you familiar with the woman from babylon that ran for the green party several years ago? her partner is an oooold family friend, it is he whom i'd love to visit..
  9:31am annie:

doug, i am SO digging the music.
  9:32am Doug:

The amazing comp Original Brazilian Pebbles is available here:
  9:32am Parq:

As melding of Italian sensibility and American song-style goes, this has its advantages over "Josefina, Please Don't Lean-a On the Bell". (Which, by the way, I happen to love, too.)
  9:35am Bad Ronald:

No I 'm not...

Yes Doug the show is great today!
  9:43am dc pat:

Doug, thanks for that link--it's still overwhelming to me how much free music is on the internets these days...
  9:50am dc pat:

speaking of Morricone, I just put a poster of Clint Eastwood from Fist Full of Dollars up next to my desk today...
  9:53am annie:

i'm in doug!!!!!!!! wooohoo!
  9:53am Paul Sherratt:

Imagining your downloading schedules exhausts me !
  9:56am dc pat:

yeah, I sent Doug an email while he was still talking about the list...
  9:57am Parq:

My God, it's *free*? My hands are shaking.
  9:58am Sanjay Gupta:

Hmm. Parqinson's.
  10:05am Paul Sherratt:

Wiley Barkdull - fabulous name - was he an emergency stand in for Lefty Frizzell ?!
  10:20am Cecile:

what's free?

I have a rare political thought.
I understand why Sarah Palin thinks she got a raw deal from the media and the McCain camp, but why is she using milquetoast commie liberal language like 'victimized' to describe herself? Such a disappointment.

(Disclaimer: I am a milquetoast commie liberal myself) (well with some libertarian leanings. ) (And I am from Michigan, so I'm sure I voted for a Republican candidate or two at some time...)
  10:21am annie:

this is the first i have ever heard of this chick.. anyone??
  10:22am Cecile:

I love Dave Burrell.
I thought I was the only one.
  10:23am Cecile:

annie, she just got started.
I know when I go into iTunes the Genius keeps telling me that I want her stuff.
  10:23am Bad Ronald:

Ha ha - No I haven't Annie but you sound like The Chairman of the Board - "This chick"!
  10:24am annie:

look at the pic, and if she's not a "chick" what is she?
  10:24am Rey Cruz:

As always, awesome musical selections. Never heard that Cannonball album before, will have to track that one down. Sounds like it's loaded w/percussion, right up my alley. Speaking of percussion, an early birthday shout out to the late great Max Roach (1/10) and a belated one to Elvis (1/8)
  10:25am Bad Ronald:

I did and she is, I'm just sayin'... quite a broad!
  10:26am Cecile:

she is the chickiest chick that ever chicked.

I like her hair.
  10:27am annie:

funny, the term "broad" is just not a label i would pin on her... broad would imply that there is some street savvy lurking
  10:27am Bad Ronald:

Damn straight Cecile and the lightning bolt adds flair!
  10:27am annie:

is hee music any good cecile?
  10:28am Swami:

I too share the Northport/ Bay Shore connect 64-97 Npt, ( w/ some breaks) Bay Shore 97-05, 08- present.
  10:28am Doug:

Oh Dave Burrell is brilliant. He does a 19-minute West Side Story medley on the same LP I played from. FanFOOKintastic (but couldn't wedge in the 19-minute track today; I've got another longish one coming up next.)

Thanks for mentioning Max's birthday. He, as you probably know, is my all-time number one favorite drummer.

To the Max, people!
  10:28am Bad Ronald:

I stand corrected, what about "What a tomato!"?
  10:29am annie:

swami, i would have graduated at the NHS in 71
and BR, yeah, tomato!! with hair-do to boot
  10:29am Bad Ronald:

Well alright Swami!
  10:30am Hugo:

I like Dave Burrell, too. Just listened to him last night - concert recording from Italy 2007 - with some other good fellows - Kidd Jordan, William Parker and Louis Moholo..
  10:31am Cecile:

I dunno. It doesn't appear to have saxophones or Viking topics or English moss or German electronics in it, so I'm not really interested.
  10:31am Swami:

ahhh, Class of 82.5 Annie. . . train ran thru my yard too. . . Brightside Ave.
  10:33am Rey Cruz:

tomato? she's a hot tamale!
  10:34am Cecile:

Doug, i have that 2-disc Arista Freedom set of Hi Won Hi 2 and another record, and it is marvelous. I love that West Side Story medley.
  10:37am Parq:

Is it too late to comment on Palin being victimized? One of the right's most successful tactics of late has been to turn left-wing rhetoric on its head. Thus, people who are against women being treated like trash are "feminist nazis", people who see through the Ill Gov's transparant gambit are "racists", and people who protest pollution are "eco-terrorists". Of course, people who laugh at the hand-picked GOP Barbie doll are anti-feminist "victimizers".
  10:42am Carmichael:

OK, I finally caught up with you LI-ers re: the picture of lightning face. After yesterday's thoughts of Betty Page, this was kind of a downer.

And the bio appears to be written by Perez Hilton. I'd never admit to ever having HEARD of any of those people, much less work with them. I'd rather tout my connection to Royal Trux.

But that's just me.
  10:43am Cecile:

yes, sadly, I know.
  10:44am gumby:

Dykstra's Law:
Everyone is someone else's weirdo.

Diggin' this Marc Levin thing Doug
  10:44am Carmichael:

And we're discussing that political whore pinhead this early in the morning?

Oh, and good morning Doug and everyone.
  10:44am HotRod:

Hi Doug! See you tomorrow?
  10:44am dc pat:

and don't forget Anne Coulter going on "news shows" to sell her new book about liberal's supposed obsession with victimization simultaneously claiming she's being victimized by the liberal media. Actually I think you brought this up the other day, Parq
  10:45am annie:

how about a link to the newest daedalus attempt? the wind-suit? this rocks
  10:47am Cecile:

carm, I had to wake up to this article when I checked my e-mail.
I just thought I'd share the "love" ;)
  10:50am Bad Ronald:

Hey Carmichael, did you grab the Roger Ruskin Spear album?
  10:50am Cecile:

it's the South African "Tie me kangaroo down!"
  10:51am annie:

cecile, that's the feeling i got !! this is great
  10:52am Carmichael:

Egads Cecile, enough to ruin even a Friday. Like my listening to commercial radio on the drive in to work. Radio rage?!?
  10:52am annie: wind-suit freedom
  10:53am Carmichael:

Parq, it completely slipped my mind in the hubbub of Thursday afternoon. Is it still out there?
  10:54am Carmichael:

The African Bob Wills?
  10:55am Parq:

I saw a video of windsuits the other night. Do those things really work? Seems that, if it was that simple, someone would have come out with it a long time ago. Carm, is what still there?
  10:56am elwood listener 108365:

Zantzinger collected rent on some properties in southern Maryland through the 1970s to the 1990s. The properties were hovels, without electricity in some cases. Problem was Zantzinger was deceiving the people from whom he collected these modest rents--he did not own the properties. He was brought up on charges and fined.
He lived not far from me on a grand estate, but said to be penniless. My wife once berated him,shaming him into leaving a public place. Actually I doubt he ever experienced shame, but he left anyway.
  10:56am annie:

parq, the video sure looks real, and wow, the child-hood dream of flying seems closest as it ever has..
  10:56am Carmichael:

Oops, sorry Parq, that was meant for Bad Ronald. Is the Roger Ruskin Spear album still available?
  10:58am Rey Cruz:

The 3 Peterses Bros were just delightful. Wondering what they were singing about so I looked up Fanagalo: "a language developed in South African mines. Originally it was constructed to allow for communication between the different workers on the mines who spoke a multitude of languages."
  11:02am Cecile:

so they could say "this place sucks" or "watch out for that falling boulder" and everyone would get it. ;)
  11:07am still b/p:

Or, "I got a wind suit for my birthday, but I don't think it'll work in here. And stop pointing your helmet lights in my eyes."
  11:07am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  11:08am Cecile:

still b/p you slay me.
  11:09am gumby:

I think the South African miners told each other. "Don't stick those diamonds up your bum, there's a cavity search after each shift.
  11:10am still b/p:

No, you!
  11:11am Doug:

In a bizarre coincidence, my maternal grandfather was a linguist and expert in languages who was brought in to to teach the miners (who came from all over southern African and spoke dozens of different languages) a universal language. (My grandfather was also a major prick.)
  11:12am Cecile:

i think you speak wisdom, gumby.

And "the DeBeers don't have enough money yet, back to work!"
  11:13am Carmichael:

"My canary just died".
  11:15am Hugo:

Lovely Dollar Brand piece, that one ...
  11:16am Cecile:

I agree, Hugo!

Doug, that is an eerie coincidence.
  11:20am Doug:

One day in seventh grade, I opened up my geography textbook and found myself staring at a picture of my grandfather. I could tell by the way he held his cigarette.

I should say that the ID of the fellow in the picture was never firmly established, but I was certain the second I saw the photo...
  11:22am annie:

wow, did i think this was miriam!!!
  11:22am Cecile:

that is completely wild, Doug! What kind of textual context was his photo in?

If your geography textbook had a section on "pool sharks of Upper Michigan", my grandpa would have been in that.
  11:25am dc pat:

Is this woman singing in Xlose or San or something?
  11:26am Hugo:

I'd raise a glass of Castle Lager for this set (if I had one). Still, got to enjoy one in Berlin last summer.

Weird story, Doug. I'd like to believe that coincidences are purely coincidental ...
  11:30am Cecile:

what is the name of the download blog again, Doug?
  11:31am gumby:

The Free Slave or the uncaught Indian. Which is more joyfull?
  11:31am still b/p:

When Miriam Makeba died, I saw one of her more well-known sucessess, "The Click Song", described a few times as a novelty song. Novel to unfamiliar ears, sure, but some too-familiar shade of conceit and clueless regard in a term that put the song/language in a category with Spike Jones or Ray Stevens tracks for laffs.
  11:33am Hugo:

This one:
  11:34am Cecile:

thanks hugo!
  11:34am Doug:

DC Pat, I believe she is singing in Xhosa.

Thanks for adding the blog URL Hugo!
  11:35am Cecile:

wow this is more like naija meets Simon and Garfunkel
  11:35am Matt:

This whole set's been great. I was going to listen to NPR this morning, but the news has been so depressing lately. Thanks.
  11:36am Cecile:

it's really good!
  11:36am Hugo:

Yes, Doug sure knows his way round the blogs. I'd say he's partially to blame for getting me immersed in all that jazz (also a blogger in my spare time) ...
  11:37am GP:

Super song choice this Midnight Sun, thanks Doug.
  11:37am Carmichael:

Yes, this is the same guitar picking as "The Boxer".
  11:37am north guinea hills:

you hit it perfectly, cecile!
  11:39am annie:

matt, wise choice, to be sure. and hugo i even got into the blog madness. lost some steam, but still blog now and then on OCA..
  11:39am Ike:

That beats the holy hell out of Simon & Bore-funkel as far as I'm concerned! That was awesome.
  11:41am still b/p:

Like litigable close in a few ways, the songs. Anyone know the chronological relationship?
  11:49am mo:

hi doug,
just downloaded "midnight sun." so lovely!! thanks, will sign up for your email list for shor.
  11:50am Bad Ronald:

@Carmichael - Roger Ruskin Spear -

It is hilarious!
  11:54am Hugo:

Yes, it is, especially the first track, but then I'm a fan of all the Bonzos - and Vivian Stanshall in particular - got most of his solo recordings.
  11:56am Carmichael:

Thanks, BR!
  11:58am annie:

doug, as usual, it has been a wonderful morning spent with great music..
  11:58am north guinea hills:

shit, african country & western is where it's AT!
  11:58am Carmichael:

Every time I hear this guitar opening, I expect to hear Hank Ballard singing, "Work With Me, Annie ..."
  11:59am Hugo:

Oops, what I've got is the first one; the link is to the second ...
  12:03pm Rey Cruz:

1 last thing! tomorrow 1/10, all day Max Roach birthday broadcast on WKCR FM or Then Roy Haynes festival right after for a whole week! Drum heaven!
  7:18pm Mike Fowler:

Hi Hugo, Please look at my web site -
Moholo features thorughout. Maybe you have details of gigs that I have not listed. Do let me know. Thanks Mike
  9:05pm mike tp:
