  9:44am Drummer Some:

DC Pat,
Funny 'cause I played "Little Dogies" by accident. I meant to play "Cowboy's Nightmare." (Betcha you weren't humming THAT!)
  9:48am dc pat:

Dang, somethings up today--I'm gonna be watching out for dogies all day...WHAT...DOES...THIS...MEAN?!
  9:48am monica:

  10:09am Paul Sherratt:

Dr Wagner,

I'm not sure. But I know Chester Arthur Burnett ain't one.
  10:09am dc pat:

strange case of dc pat and woof moo
  10:12am Paul Sherratt:

I do believe the dj is spoiling the listener with this Greek set ..
  10:12am still b/p:

Course, dcp, (at the risk of making a discouraging word heard) it could just mean you'll get into a big beef at work today, or feel stampeded by shit-heads or branded by lies. But here's hoping it means skies are not cloudy all day.
  10:12am Cecile:

Good morning, everyone!
  10:14am Roberto L:

Hi Doug and friends all over the woeld. In Argentina 10 am now..
  10:15am annie:

good morning cecile, nice to see you survived. what did you eat?
  10:18am Cecile:


I love that record.
  10:19am Cecile:

We went to a Mexican cafeteria.
I had caldo de res that I doctored with loads of lime, onion and cilantro. I think they put a whole beef knuckle and a whole ear of corn in it.
  10:20am annie:

bet you feel great today!! ;)
  10:20am Cecile:

Old WCBN listeners may recognize one par tof this song - it was featured on the long-standing "Jazz till Noon" promo in the 80s.
  10:21am Drummer Some:

Welcome to your new family, Roberto!
  10:21am dc pat:

still: I'm going to be watchin out for all that bull.
  10:23am Cecile:

I actually don't. And it's not because of the soup.
I have THE COLD.
It sucks.
  10:23am Paul Sherratt:

Good morning Roberto L in Argentina from Paul in the UK. Been enjoying an Atahualpa Yupanqui song this last week. Do you think some of Doug's other listeners would appreciate this singer ?
  10:24am Cecile:

I actually don't. And it's not because of the soup.
I have THE COLD.
It sucks.
  10:25am Cecile:

What the hell?
I got a pop up for Ken's last ever radio extravaganza. WTF?
  10:26am annie:

bummer, cecile.
  10:35am Cecile:

Yeah. I need to have some kinda caldo, pho, soupe, borscht, whatev tonight
  10:37am annie:

chicken soup! with lots of garlic!
  10:44am dc pat:

I recommend the caldo...w/ lots of garlic...
  10:44am Cecile:

  10:55am chris:

this Dave Pike stuff is so great
  11:07am Parq:

Maybe ??? could play on a double bill with !!! sometime.
  11:10am Parq:

@ Still, re 10:12, I believe Amnesty International would like a word with you about what you did to that metaphor.
  11:11am PMD:

This sounds like bagpipes...
  11:13am PMD:

Oh, just went back adn read comment. Mornin' annie!

BTW, does everyone have their swag but me?
  11:13am Carmichael:

Good morning Doug and all friday lurkers. It's Furlough Friday for me, so I'm listening from the comfort of my fortified bunker.
  11:18am ?:

no swag for me yet either--not even the confirmation mailing. Didn't realize others had already gotten theirs . . .
  11:22am Cecile:

none for me
  11:22am Carmichael:

I actually got my T-shirt on 2 different occasions. No other swag, though.
  11:23am annie:

i got my cd that i won on trouble's show.
  11:26am Peter Venkman:

Annie, what kind of cd is it?
  11:27am Cecile:

I emailed Joe McGasko. I figure it was better than just speculating.
  11:27am Parq:

I don't have my swag yet, but I was lucky enough to be able to make a large donation, and I have a commensurately large pile of stuff coming to me, so I'm not expecting it until mid-summer. If you're also in that fortunate group, past experience suggests that you think in terms of July.
  11:27am Freddy: Formerly of West Orange Plumbing Supply:

I'm wearing my WFMU sweatshirt today
  11:28am annie:

peter, i love your work, btw.... my son was a big fan.. the cd i got was "oh, run into me, but don't hurt me" female blues singers 1923-1930 wonderful
  11:30am Cecile:

Has anyone seen Beautiful Boxer?
The film about a Muay Thai champion who became a transsexual? It's an amaznig movie
  11:30am Vivian:


I'm lovin' the talkover music. Is this available on the mining the download?
  11:33am annie:

yay, i get to spend time with my son this weekend!! always fun.
  11:33am Parq:

Freddy, we're all sure it looks great on you. In this humidity, "sweatshirt" isn't just a name.
  11:34am Parq:

And Annie, I envy you. My girl was supposed to have the whole weekend off, and instead, she's working all weekend to cover for a sick co-worker.
  11:34am Drummer Some:

That talkover track comes from a very recently re-released recording. I don't put anything up on the blog that is still in print. Send me an email and I'll see if I can locate a download.
  11:35am annie:

doug, not sure if you're hip to this stuff, but there is a world-wide drumming this weekend along the lines of "hands across the world" sunday from 6-7 world wide.
  11:37am Freddy:

I think I've sweated off 5lbs already
  11:39am Freddy:

I wish there were WFMU boxer shorts that glow in the dark.
  11:42am Drummer Some:

No, I dint know about that. I'll be sure to bang something on Sunday.
  11:43am Cecile:

6-7 in what time zone?
  11:45am annie:

it's supposedly going for 24 hours. so each time zone in it's own place. supposed to bring about world calmness... or some such thing.. mayan prediction... but i like the concept of all those drums..
  11:46am Cecile:

So would that be 5-6 p.m. in the CST?
  11:48am annie:

6-7... so it succesive
  11:48am Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:

I got a new hat! Like it?
  11:49am Parq:

'Cile, I think what she means is that each time zone commences as it hits 6, so that the drumming sort of travels around the world, one time zone after another.
  11:51am Cecile:

oh, got it.
  11:54am texas scott:

dangit...I missed the show cuz of stupid work.
Hello and goodbye,Doug and friends.
  11:55am annie:

doug, this was a great day! thanks, once more, for the tunes and beats..
  11:57am Drummer Some:

Glad you dug it, Annie. Tony Coulter fills in next week.
  11:58am Parq:

Fine show, DrumSum. Hope your DC trip is all you want it to be. I'ma go look for ???'s Myspace page now.
  3:05pm Pancake Especially:

I love your show. It cheers me up. The African stuff here is incredibly beautiful. Thank you.
  9:06am Van in DC:

Ha! The title of this playlist would make a great album title, don'tcha think? :)
  10:59am Doug Schulkind:

It surely does, Van. Maybe a Sun City Girls record from 1983.
