Listener comments!

  9:05am annie:

i am sooooo breathing now...
  9:07am PMD:

Morning! Great to have you back Doug...
  9:17am PMD:

Annie, you certainly pull some interesting words out of your hat in scrabble.
  9:18am dc pat:

Guten Morgen. Drummer some: you going to play some Les Paul today? I heard a tune by him last night that kind of blew my of his 8 track experiments..
  9:23am Drummer Some:

Good morning to one and y'all! I really, really missed you. No Les Paul on the show today, DC Pat. I adore Les, but he just didn't fit with what I got going on. And I have two other R.I.P.s I'd like to acknowledge today.
  9:25am annie:

pmd, i have a doozy lined up...
  9:25am Moses:

What's up my brother ! Good to have you back !
You sounding great !!!

Peace and Love !
  9:25am dc pat:

thas' cool. I've been a bit remiss in digging him...
  9:29am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Welcome back, Doug. It was a low down dirty shame to miss you last week.
  9:30am Yan Dart:
  9:31am Yan Dart:

I meant to say, too bad about Les Paul. All night I was looking forward to hearing him on your show.
  9:35am annie:

sorry you were disappointed with one of my next favorite staions.. WERU... i mostly listen in the mornings..
  9:36am fishmonkeystew:

Doug! Welcome back. I am happy to report that your Brass Band Premium from the fund drive has safely arrived at my home and kicks major butt. Thanks!
  9:37am Hugo:

On the subject of R.I.P.s, I'm certainly going to listen to Rashied Ali (with Charles Gayle and Sirone) later today.
  9:38am Drummer Some:

I never listened to WERU in the morning! I tried it mostly in the evening while preparing dinner and also late at night. I loved Blue Hill though. I can see why you almost moved there.
  9:43am El Thatchmo:

Doug's Back, He's Black, and He's BADDER THAN EVER!
  9:43am annie:

yeah, mornings are the best for that station.. evenings are catch as catch can and the djs are .... odd. yes, it's beautiful there.
  9:47am Cecile:

Doug, I know that you schedule your shows carefully, but I could stand to hear "I Hate Hate" today...
  9:49am dc pat:

Norwegian wood in the background there...
  9:49am Cecile:

DUDE, I remember hearing this so much back in my early college radio days. Great track
  9:53am Drummer Some:

Cecile, you mean the Reagan Youth ditty?!?
  9:53am Cecile:

Aw, Benjamin Zepheniah is a lonely man:
  9:53am Cecile:

No Dis Policeman
  9:56am Cecile:

No, the Razzy song, for I hate hate
  9:58am Drummer Some:

Oh my god, that amazing Razzy song. (How could I forget. It is my anthem after all.) Now I wish'd I'd brought it with me. I should just keep it in my bag.
  10:00am Cecile:

Yeh. Had a run-in with a guy at my bus stop. I knew he was conservative, but I didn't know he was a raging asshole homophobe.
  10:06am annie:

ok, gang. i'm off..... not my nut, but off to the movies. going to see that new movie distrct 9... no making fun now.. and i get to spend the day in oneonta.. hope you all have a wonderful day!! doug, welcome back!! pmd.. see you later, this evening if not tomorrow
  10:07am Cecile:

what's district 9?
Have a great day in town, annie!
  10:12am Duke:

Sadly, Rashied Ali, my favorite drummer (next to Doug, of course) passed away this week too. Are you going to play some Rashied?
  10:14am Paul Sherratt:

Dylan on Mike Seeger

" Mike was unprecedented. He was like a duke, the knight errant. As for being a folk musician, he was the supreme archetype. … He played on all the various planes, the full index of the old-time styles, played in all the genres and had the idioms mastered — Delta blues, ragtime, minstrel songs, buck-and-wing, dance reels, play party, hymns and gospel — being there and seeing him up close, something hit me. It’s not as if he just played everything well, he played these songs as good as it was possible to play them. … The thought occurred to me that maybe I’d have to write my own folk songs, ones that Mike didn’t know "
  10:14am PMD:

Oh, like this International Submarine Band...
  10:16am listener jeff:

Yeah - GP always does it!
  10:16am Drummer Some:

Rashied for SURE!
  10:25am Cecile:

This Dear Addict is a great song

See you guys in a bit, have a work meeting
  10:31am Squeaky:

It's good to be free.
  10:32am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Work? What's that?
  10:38am Duke:

Wow. This is great stuff!!
  11:08am Hugo:

This set got me thinking of another luminary of the indie NY loft scene at the time who's also passed away, though many years ago: Charles Tyler. He also had his own label. Always welcome to these ears.

Hey, you could do a sax and drum set for a later programme. Braxton and Roach (and so on) ...
  11:12am Drummer Some:

Brother H,
Maybe you can come and guest host?!
  11:18am jackstir:

Great set! How about some Sam Rivers? He is still kickin' !!!
  11:19am trish:

Hi Doug - glad to hear you back. Hope you had a nice break off there in the coastal distant.
  11:20am Parq:

Douglas, belated welcomes back. It's the last day of my vaca so I slept in, but I'm here for the last reel. Judging from the musical selections and the comments, you're rested and fit, and doing great. I'm so pleased.

Hugo, go for it!
  11:21am Hugo:

The last thing Sonny Sharrock did was a sax and drum set, for Cartoon Network(!). I've got that cd somewhere ...

Brother D, a visit to Montgomery Street is always obligatory after crossing the pond. Next year, hopefully ...

(When the screen updates, my cursor disappears. Funny)
  11:23am Drummer Some:

Didn't Sharrock compose the theme to the show "Space Ghost" on the cartoon network?
  11:25am Hugo:

Doug, that's the one!
  11:28am Listener Dave from NH:

Dang this Oliver de Coque track is great.
  11:33am Drummer Some:

LD from NH,
I am delighted you're delighted.
  11:39am Cecile:

Drummer - yes, Sonny composed that theme.
  11:43am Parq:

Share with Wal-Mart? Ah, that explains all the anti-union email I've been getting all of a sudden.
  11:45am Cecile:

heh. Good, Doug!
the pronouns are gender-neutral...
  11:46am Hugo:

Syliphone rulez! Still looking for the second 22 Band album ...
  11:52am Lou Fancy:

Great show today! Learned a ton and heard some great tracks
  11:53am Paul Sherratt:

So, Hugo, you have the first 22 Band album ?
  11:54am Drummer Some:

So glad you enjoyed it!

Hugo's got it fer sure (and so does I!)
  11:55am Hugo:

Indeed I do. I believe that you can download it, though.
  11:57am holland oats:

this bob cribbe fella not exactly a master of timing!
  12:11pm Hugo:

Link to the 22 Band:

I haven't checked whether it works, but the music is in any case terrific!
