Listener comments!

  9:06am annie:

so good to hear the tunes of a friday am
  9:09am Stuart Troutman:

Pete Brown remains overlooked & underrated.
  9:09am eugene from vienna salutes the schoolchild:

on a friday afternoon
  9:11am annie:

i've always been a big fan of charlie christian
  9:16am Drummer Some:

Top of the morning (afternoon) to you Annie, Stu and Eugene. Let's begin the reading where we left off last week. Who would like to begin?
  9:18am annie:

i was up waay too late last night to read right now, teach, i pass.. thanks.
  9:25am v k:

mownin' Doug - always a pleasure to be tuned-in to your fine and dynamic program
  9:53am PMD:

Mornin' all. Been listening but occupied until now. Sort of. Annie, you get demerits...
  10:00am annie:

man, pmd, i'm bummed... i'll do extra reading next week. company last night; up til about midnight.
  10:03am gumby:

Had to be out last week Doug, but I wanted to say the Lateef B-day party show was great. Listened to it about 5 times on the archive already and ordered a couple of discs.
always a great show, thanks.
  10:05am trs:

Quietly working in my mother tongue, here liive again, today, not thinking too far off the topic front and centre. Hello.
  10:05am monica:

morning, doug. your brass bands sure woke my ass up! in a great way of course...
  10:06am trs:

Aunts' tongue twisted.
  10:07am Dr. Rick Marshall:

Monica, I'll wake your ass up in a good way
  10:07am Drummer Some:

Hey Monica!
This Leroy Van Dyke's for you! (And boy, that Manny Bella is cute.)
  10:08am GP:

Good morning everyone.

Auction song proving yet again my theory that there is song for EVERYTHING.
  10:11am Paul Sherratt:

That Porter Lp has one of my all-time-favourite covers
  10:12am Drummer Some:

Thanks for that, Gumby. The Yusef show was no labor and all love.
  10:12am Jim:

Interesting coincidence that you would play Johnny Cash, because I was about to comment that the melody of The Auctioneer sounds to me a lot like that of A Boy Named Sue.
  10:13am monica:

thank you, doug! but i feel SO busted!! damn FB....
  10:14am jv gallagher:

The auctioneer is a fun song. I can't help thinking of Werner Hertzog's How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck (1976) about Amish auctioneers. Do other countries have auctioneers like ours?
  10:15am GP:

Porter Waggoner has a voice like honey on a hot buttered biscuit.
  10:17am Cecile:

Real letter Miss Gray typed:

Dear You:
U Been Pwnd.

Miss Gray.
  10:17am Cecile:

A great song from my childhood
  10:19am Cecile:

although it is disturbing that five small girls from 12 to 2 knew all the words...
  10:22am Cecile:

Conway Twitty's heart goes bump bump ba.
Most other humans go lup-dup.
He's so cool.
  10:24am PMD:

I need to get some John Prine. I haven't heard this before. I had a lot of his old stuff on cassette, and didn't upgrade. Who is he singing with?
  10:24am GP:

John and Iris...classic

Their is a funnier song on this album.
  10:25am holland oats:

this prine is so good, sickly honest
  10:25am GP:

PMD..he is with Iris DeMent
  10:25am PMD:

If that's Iris, note to self to also get her too! Darn,,, too much to get.
  10:25am GP:

Their = there...sheesh
  10:26am PMD:

OK, what's the best Iris DeMent album to get?
  10:27am Carmichael:

Happy payday, everyone.
  10:28am annie:

my life, pmd
  10:28am lipwak:

For Iris, Infamous Angel,
  10:31am annie:

ditto on that lipwak, too her first two are the best..
  10:32am PMD:

Thanks! OK, oh fonts of knowledge - best John Prine?
  10:33am Drummer Some:

Iris's "My Life" makes me weep like a baby. In a good way.
  10:34am Bad Ronald:

That's DeMented...
  10:35am annie:

i love that song her mother sings, drumsome..
  10:35am Cecile:

You could sing this song to "I've got to use my imagination"
  10:36am gumby:

The John Prine 2 disc Anthology is pretty tasty.
Goes back to "Illegal Smile" and "There's a hole in Daddy's arm where all the money goes stuff"
  10:36am Cecile:

BILLY JAM ARE YOU READING THIS? This sounds like a mashup
Sounderarajan vs. the Pips.
  10:44am Paul Sherratt:

I'll second gumby on that Prine selection, PMD. Every home should own a 'Sam Stone '
  10:44am PMD:

'Thanks Doug and Gumby. Gumby - does it include That's the Way the World Goes Round - one of my favoritest songs of all time? Oh, guess i could look myself...
  10:44am seang:

cant get that song Happy Talk from South Pacific outta my head--that melody is something else
  10:45am annie:

seang, i like captain sensible's version..
  10:46am Drummer Some:

The crazy thing is that South Pacific was amazingly ahead of the curve on race issues. Won the freaking Pulitzer. Incredible!
  10:46am Paul Sherratt:

That song IS on the Rhino Anthology
  10:49am Cecile:

No kidding, Doug?

*Bali Hai-five*
  10:49am PMD:

Cool. Thanks!
  10:49am seang:

yeah Annie me too--been listening to it on the archives--first heard dizzee rascal rapping over it then searched backwards for the original--so great!
  10:57am Dan:

Have you guys done some work on your transmitter? WFMU is coming in clearer than I remember.....
  10:58am v k:

wfmu radio reception - worst place i know of is on I-80 near Paterson, NJ - almost no reception for approx. 5 miles
  11:02am Cecile:

has anyone thought of doing a massive reissue of stuff in the vaults of Flying Dutchman if it hasn't happened already/ There's loads of great records on that label.
  11:03am Drummer Some:

Actually, we may have done some things to improve our reception. Where are you tuning in from?
  11:08am Drummer Some:

A massive number of great old Flying Dutchman LPs are available at a blog that has aggregated download links all over the blogosphere. You can find them all here:
  11:10am Cecile:

My favorite Gato Barbieri records are all on that label.
  11:13am Dan:

Tuning in from Park Slope....
  11:14am seang:

just saw Last Tango in Paris for the first time last night
  11:17am Cecile:

i've never seen it, actually!
And to me, although it's a great soundtrack, it is probably one of the least typical of Gato's mid 70s recordings..

Haven't seen the movie...
  11:18am Cecile:

der redundant we are today.
  11:19am gumby:

PMD, sorry had a meeting there.
Yes world goes round is on there and a great duet with Bonnie Raitt of Angel from Montgomery (I think that's the title)
  11:22am gumby:

I think th eJohn Prine anthology is called Great Days
  11:23am annie:

seang, funny, i just saw it this year, for the first time and i'm close to 60!!! interesting flick..
  11:32am lipwak:

Doug, You and others may enjoy New Orleans' own Noisician Coalition. A marching band made up of bull horns, trashcans and lots of homemade adapted instruments. I'm on a kick, promoting them where I can. They have a myspace page


  11:35am Drummer Some:

Thanks for that. My nose hairs are tinglin'.
  11:36am Hugo:

Here's the cover of the Tchicai:

SAJ is, I believe, a sub-label of FMP.
  11:39am Filip:

Hey Doug! Greetings from Beijing! Listening live... Hearing your show makes me feel like home:-)
  11:42am Drummer Some:

Hey hey! From Beijing. Wow. Send me an email later. I'd love to ask you some questions about Internet use in China. No, really!
  11:44am Barcli:

Damn Sam!!!!!!! he is the Miracle Man.
  11:48am GP:

I'm sweatin just listing to this MVP clip.....phew
  11:49am Paul Sherratt:

I was given to understand that Steve Barker, at-a-distance proprietor of BBC Radio Lancashire's legendary ' On The Wire ' show runs a dub reggae club in Beijing ! Sounds curious ...
  11:49am holland oats:

do it lily!!
  11:50am holland oats:

do it lily!!
  11:50am Zampoughi:

Keep your hands to yerself, will ya?
  11:51am Hugo:

Some very recent Yusef Lateef is up here:

Two hours live from Minneapolis from last year. With Roscoe Mitchell, Douglas Ewart and Adam Rudolph. Ultra-fine!
  11:53am AnAnonymousParty:

Later, a guy is somewhere, out back, in the dark, playing a flute.
  11:22am john mjw:

Been looking for this song since heard it on WRPI, Troy, back in 1969. i can die happy now. It wasn't just a lysergic induced audio mirage. It's better than i remember.
  11:29am john mjw:

Sorry. Talkin bout Zampoughi. Do it Melvin
  8:12am Van in DC:

I have come to hail the wail of the scromph.
  8:31am Doug Schulkind:

If not you, then who, Van? If not now, then when?
  10:56am Van in DC:


This blog is open to invited readers only

It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation.
  11:00am Doug Schulkind:

Van, actually, I believe that blog is no longer active. When some bloggers shut down their sites without actually deleting them, this "invited readers only" message pops up. No worries!
  11:06am Van in DC:

Ah okay, thank you Doug :)
