Sounds from the archive of the future, sonic drilling into the past, dissonant rumbling, lyrical melodies, noises (human, animal, mechanical, digital) inscrutable yet honest, desultory but consistent.

  4:06pm Carmichael:

My payday flagon of ale awaits me at the fortress. But it's only 1:00 PM here ...
  4:18pm Joe:

It just so happens I was in the middle of reading It Came From Memphis when Jim Dickinson's death was announced.
  4:51pm Carmichael:

When playing guitar leads, it's not important to understand music theory.

I love the Cramps. This whole interview is totally cool, David!
  5:02pm north guinea hills:

weird, sonic boom is one of the nicest guys i've had the pleasure to hang out w/, but maybe b/c he was superbly baked all the time.
  5:07pm Cecile:

what's this about sonic boom? I missed that part.
  5:11pm muhrvis:

wow, that Johnny Ace piece was an awesome song.
  5:13pm Carmichael:

I came this close to requesting Johnny Ace earlier. I have no idea why I was thinking of him.
  5:16pm Matt Stintson:

Great, great set!!! A much needed tribute!
  5:50pm Chris:

this is one of the sickest sets I've ever heard on WFMU
  5:57pm Joe:

David this was a wonderful tribute.
  6:00pm mb:

Thank-you David. Excellent show. Jim Lives!!!
  12:16pm Paul:

Great, great show, and a fine tribute to a man who will be much missed. I was DJing at a festival and had just played The Lonesome Death of Johnny Ace when I was told of Jim's death. Terrible news, still shocked.
  10:22am Mary Lindsay Dickinson:

David, you have absolutely fabulous taste regarding Jim's best work. I say this because it is so much like mine. :-) There were many artists/songs I had forgotten that were wonderful to hear again. I especially liked re-visiting Green on Red, the Cramps, Giant Sand, Tav, and Furry. The cold the day that cut was recorded in the dusty, abandoned theater was brutal but Furry was always the showman and great musician/singer. The record that cut comes from that Jim made to promote the refurbishing of the Orpheum Theater was actually called Beale Street Saturday Night. The record was successful in that the Orpheum proudly stands to this day, hosting great theatrical events. There is one other small problem I'll point out. I'he Atlantic house band that Jim formed to move to Miami was called the Dixie Flyers. Every other comment and your choice of records and Robert Gordon to help narrate them was spot on.
Having only two tiny mistakes in a show this long talking about a career that spanned forty years is amazing! Great job.

I would have commented sooner but a friend just sent me this show. I passed the link on to Luther and Cody and I know they will enjoy it. You are doing great work. Keep it up!
