  9:47am still b/p:

Barcelona atmospheric/aural conditions creating winds of envy & build-ups of thick coveto-nimbus clouds over here.
  9:49am dc pat:

God I'd love to be in Barca now-for soccer celebrations AND rock and/or roll.
  9:49am PMD:

Happy birthday Doug! Yay! wishing that the new year will bring a new exciting job.
  9:50am Drummer some:

From your lips to a very wealthy benefactor's ears, PMD. Thanks.
  9:55am Janet H:

that movie is the best!!!
  9:55am annie:

i thought that was ruben!! my brain is enjoying all this great melodic cacophony
  10:05am Hugo:

It's been ages since I visited Barcelona last, but still vivid memories of Las Ramblas and Barrio Chino. Tends to be Costa Blanca these days.
  10:07am annie:

incredibly beautiful doug, this.
  10:07am dc pat:

this is a great set--can't beat cowboy tunes.
  10:07am Janet H:

sit back and just enjoy the music......
  10:08am jk:

wow, I just saw Paranoid Park last night and it featured that Cast King song. I was wracking my brain to place it, which is no small feat this morning. great songs. Thanks for the great show Doug.
  10:12am annie:

i love the old moralizing tunes. very reminiscent of burl ives. i heard a remake of who killed cock-robin this week, they took out the word cock and replaced it with "little". shame. a real shame
  10:15am PMD:

I love this type of music - Old Hannah. Just a beautiful voice singing...
  10:16am annie:

pmd; you should check out hazel dickens and alice gerard.. they are REAL... hazel is featured in the movie "matewan"
  10:16am Janet H:

I'm a newbie to WFMU....started listening around mid March.....and i have to say this playlist is one of my favorites so far...Thanks Doug!!
  10:18am annie:

sorry doug, not that karen isn't..... :P

we are glad you joined the group janet
  10:19am PMD:

Annie, will do! Actually, I'll check out the movie. I do know of Hazel.

Janet, you seem like you've been here forever! In a good way.
  10:21am Paul Sherratt:

Explore the world of Roxy Gordon !
  10:22am Janet H:

you guys make me feel welcome......thanks!!
  10:23am annie:

the movie is very realistic; a portrayal of the union wars in the coal mines. got me reading about the unions and the struggle involved in getting them created.. malcom cowley, great writer "dream of the golden mountains"
  10:24am dc pat:

Hi Janet, hard feelings??
  10:24am aston:

I think that was Johnny Dowd who wished he'd been honest.
  10:24am dc pat:

he sounded pretty "down" to me..
  10:26am Janet H:

dc pat,...of course not!
  10:27am dc pat:

  10:27am Parq:

How could I have been so unfortunate as to have missed something called "Drag Queens in Limousines"?? Dang that commute! Doug, re 9:33, it always is. Hope you're saving them.
  10:27am holland oats:

awesome morning vibe to this countrified set
  10:28am Paul Sherratt:

I accidentally found myself driving Mary Gauthier around the UK in early October 2001, She was quite startling back then and remains so to this day !
  10:29am annie:

saw her in concert paul, right after katrina... she was a powerful performer..
  10:30am Hugo:

Mary Gauthier is always welcome on the airwaves and as a visitor to these shores. Four times so far in town!
  10:30am Carmichael:

Morning, Doug and listeners.
  10:32am Parq:

Annie, here's a bit of irony for you - "Matewan", with all its celebration of union power as a worthy goal, was made with non-union stagehands.
  10:32am Rob:

Good morning.
Listening online, here in rural Virginia. Didn't give any thought to FMU for at least 20 years or so. Been in Va for 25-ish.
What brought me to listening was hitting a pprolonged crisis here. Sort of a psychological hostage situation, taking it and taking it, court dates 4 and 6 months away, doubting if I'll make it. (No, i'm not in jail.)
Regardless, tuned in, instantly relieved with Plastico, getting some of the jiust, then this hard-luck stuff. KNow it'll pick up, switch gears, and break away from itself, because that's what always happened, listening each night back in Jersey. Seemed like Irwin Chusid was on constantly. What a relief it would be when someone else would takeover. This is quite a relief now.
Thank you , thank you.
  10:34am annie:

oh, parq, what a shame! .. irony is ironic, huh?
  10:36am Paul Sherratt:

Roxy's Crazy Horse Never Died was released as an LP - not sure of the year
  10:37am Carmichael:

Out here in California, we're having massive union problems, layoffs, etc ... Unions are ugly. Good if you're a coal miner in the '30s, not so good if you're a government employee in the 21st century.
  10:38am Carmichael:

This set's gonna kick ass!
  10:42am annie:

see, i knew that would bring up the union chatter. i am fascinated by its history and evolution to become the monster it is now.. it all boils down to control and the money, i guess. if it can be exploited, then so be it..
  10:42am Drummer Some:

Take a deep breath. Yeah, that's good. It's gonna be OK. WFMU will be with you every step of the way. Things suck now everywhere. They're going to get better. I'm sure of it.
  10:58am Swami:

The day after re-election our union prez sold us out. Civil service!
  11:01am annie:

sucks, swami. they sure ain't what they used to be.
  11:01am Cecile:

Hey, I'm back. Gotta catch up on my reading.
Great track, Doug.
  11:02am Carmichael:

I'm a civil servant, and I don't mind that system at all, as it's less obtrusive and not tainted with corruption. But combine that with union representation and the dynamic changes, particularly in bad times.
  11:03am texas scott:

yeah,unions have outlived their usefulness.Dinosaurs are extinct and so should be the way of the union,along with the circus , beauty pageants and parades.May they all die in peace.
just saying...
and yes,Doug is right.EVERYTHING is temporary!
  11:03am Carmichael:

Hey Annie, time to pull out the Utah Phillips LPs!
  11:04am Cecile:

no, they haven't.
They need to reinvent themselves.
We need them more now than ever.
I'm glad I got re-classed and back in a bargaining unit. I have the best boss every, but who knows what I might have in the future.
  11:04am annie:

oh yeah, carm. to be sure... i posted alot of his stuff on Fb last week. i love his chutzpah!
  11:06am Carmichael:

And he's a great storyteller.
  11:07am Hugo:

This Suite Africaine is a thing of beauty. I probably have it somewhere on this computer.

Speaking of which, listening to the show from home on this surround speaker setup with a subwoofer humming along underneath the desk. As the job is moving from out of town into town, I have the privilege of having a home office until things get settled. Bit of a change from the crummy office speakers ...
  11:08am annie:

i saw him looong ago at a festival. back in the 70s. mesmerizing and fascinating.
  11:11am Cecile:

I got a new computer at work. it is so flippin' awesome
  11:11am Carmichael:

I saw Phillips at the local Union Hall here in Sacramento around 1985 or so. He was a nice but curmudgeonly man, with a wry Mark Twain-ish style of banter.

A sign at the bar said:

Bud - $1.00
Bud Light - $1.00
Coors - $20.00 & a lecture
  11:12am annie:

virtually unstoppable, he was.
  11:12am dc pat:

that's hilarious Carm
  11:14am Cecile:

that is, dcp. awesome
  11:14am Carmichael:

Cecile, are you a civil servant? If not, then it may be a good thing to have union representation. If you are, then you're already protected and you don't have to pay dues. In my case, I need to be protected against my employees ...
  11:14am dc pat:

yeah I think unions still serve a purpose but they definitely need to morph into something else. But I can do without beauty pageants and circuses...parades are ok, little kids love 'em.
  11:16am Listener Dave from NH:

What's this I hear? Cowbell?
Oh heck yes.
  11:16am Cecile:

I like parades, but what dcp said.

I am a civil servant in a multi-county agency. And believe me, I've needed a union to protect me from my bosses. Until now.
  11:17am Carmichael:

Here we go. Soul music, Music of the people, Brother Rabbitte.
  11:21am Cecile:

detroit soul!
got any chairmen of the board?
  11:21am J-Mar:

It's a long shot -- but hey, Doug, any chance you've got "Whatever Makes My Baby Feel Good," by Rose Williams with George Clinton and the Funkadelics? I've been searching for this song in digital form, but to no avail. Just have a crappy cassette copy.
  11:26am Carmichael:

Any song with "Getdown" in the title has to be good.
  11:30am Parq:

I'm a civil servant *and* an AFSCME member, and come from a long line of union stagehands. The hostility of the non-working-class left toward unions illustrates that unions made the biggest mistake in their collective history when they lined up behind McCarthy and his witchhunts. I can just hear the Amer Mgt Assoc - "First we let the unions get rid of the left, then we get rid of the unions." And that's exactly how it played out.
  11:34am Cecile:

I'm an AFSCME member as well.
I haven't seen that kind of hostility, Parq, even when I was out on strike back at my old department. Pretty much anyone who took the bus in Mpls wanted the strike to be resolved in our favor.

But I'm sure a lot of people feel that way.
  11:34am DeemerDave:

Except the left is stronger than ever and kicking the right's ass.
  11:36am Parq:

Dave, oh really? The wars have been ended? DOMA has been repealed? A firebrand leftie, the leftist equivalent of Scalia, has been named to the USSC? I'm real glad to hear it.
  11:40am Drummer Some:

Is that the version that appears on Up for the Down Stroke?
  11:41am Hugo:

My Beninian (?) chum would be delighted ...
  11:42am Carmichael:

As you may have seen in California, the fight is extremely vocal and will be ongoing. The populace doesn't want any tax increases, the unions won't give an inch on anything, and the Legislature refuses to cut programs. And we're 24 billion in the hole.

Nothing but sabre-rattling, lawsuits and special elections. I'm moving to Paraguay.
  11:42am DeemerDave:

Sorry, I thought you were talking about the left, not the ultra extreme far left, whick still appears to be making a comeback.
  11:42am annie:

ok, off for now... y'all have a great weekend HB doug!!
  11:42am Drummer some:

Tell your Beninois chum to strap on his seat belt. The next (and last, boo-hoo) track is a monster!
  11:43am Peter:

The Kings of Benin. The Vulcans of Benin. Political mayhem aside, I sometimes wish I grew up in Benin.
  11:43am Parq:

Harumph -- "ultra extreme far" = pot calling kettle black.
  11:43am Cut the Listeners Some:

Slack on the Vehement Politics Arguments? Thanks!
  11:44am J-Mar:

No, different version. Only showed up on a 45, around 68 or 69, on a label called Funkadelic Records. great, super-tight Detroit soul, but with awesome guitar licks, I guess by Eddie Hazel?
  11:44am Cecile:

annie, happy happy weekend!
  11:44am DeemerDave:

Is anyone else having trouble with typing comments. My cursor keeps disappearing. Quite annoying actually.
  11:44am holland oats:

maybe your computer is trying to tell you something
  11:45am Cecile:

Doug, what kind of cake did you get?
  11:46am Janet H:

Doug, thanks for the made my morning...
  11:46am DeemerDave:

So who pisssed in your granola this morning?
  11:46am Drummer some:

Ah! This one:
(Don't get excited, it's not a download.)
  11:47am Carmichael:

Happy Birthday Doug! And Cecile too! And my kids 3!
  11:47am Parq:

Dave, it does sound like your puter, rather than Kenzo's software. Do you have more than one web browser? If so, try the other one and see if that makes a diff. And if that's the kind of name calling we're into, then you can have it. Last word's all yours.
  11:48am DeemerDave:

holland oats:
Yeah. Like I shouldn't have "upgraded" to MS Explorer 8.
  11:48am Carmichael:

Parq & DeemerDave,

Bryce will mellow you asses right out. Wait and see ...
  11:48am J-Mar:

Yup, that's the one, Mr. Drummer Some. You can tell from the label that it's completely awesome. It's very much in the vein of The Parliaments' singles, but with a little extra oomph and a kick-ass drum lick.
  11:48am Carmmichael:

Whoo!! That's "your" asses, Dr. Freud ....
  11:49am Elias:

Doug, happy birthday yesterday! I've always felt that Gemini is simultaneously the best and the worst sign, with the exact same reasons for both.
  11:49am Cecile:

And if he doesn't, The Bats are in the archive...
  11:49am DeemerDave:

Insult was not intended. I apologize.
  11:50am Cecile:

YUP, Elias, our greatest strengths are our worst weaknesses.
  11:50am J-Mar:

hey, more Geminis in the house here! my birthday's on Sunday. but the crazy thing is that I've got two co-workers, who both sit right across from me, with the same birthday.
  11:51am Parq:

Carm, I dug it more the first way. ;>
  11:51am Elias:

That's what I was looking for!
  11:51am Janet H:

I'm a gemini!
  11:52am Cecile:

J-Mar, that's my birthday!
  11:52am Janet H:

that's pretty crazy J-Mar!
  11:53am holland oats:

gemini - me too - and i better get them cha-cha heels!
  11:55am Carmichael:

J-Mar, my twins' birthdays are on Sunday. Gemini, get it?? Gemini???
  11:56am Drummer some:

What an amazingly entertaining read you commentators have thrown down today. Thanks!
  11:56am dc pat:

oh yea?, my dad and I share the same birthday and we use to sit next to each other all the time! I tried to get my wife to hold onto my daughter a couple of extra weeks to make it 3 generations in a row, but she couldn't do it.
  11:56am Cecile:

J-Mar, I had two friends who were fellow Geminis and college DJs. Our birthdays were May 29. 30 and 31. We had some fun radio programs.

Carm, that's a true Gemini.
  11:57am Janet H:

what does that tell us that half the people here are born between may 20 to June 21.....
  11:58am Carmichael:

Yes it is, Cecile. It's also 2 of everything ....
  11:58am J-Mar:

well, you know, Cecile, we share a birthday with Johnny Paycheck and Brooke Shields -- and I like to think that they each represent one side of the Gemini experience.
lucky for me, today also happens to be the annual Pie Day at my work. so there is pie everywhere. it's actually kind of disgusting already, and it's not even noon in Nashville yet.
  11:58am Cecile:

September is Business Month.

And Clint Eastwood and Kyle (Homicide) Secor, J-Mar
  11:59am Cecile:

Oh, yes, Carm. I have twin nephews I adore, but it's a handful!
  12:00pm Parq:

I totally want to work in J-Mar's office.
  12:00pm dc pat:

dang I have a poster of Clint 2 feet away from me.
  12:01pm Cecile:

Me, too Parq. Me, too.
  12:01pm Janet H:

i share my bday with paul mccartney
  12:02pm J-Mar:

Who knew working for a symphony orchestra could be so much fun?
