A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

My 12 year old just asked me "Mom, what's that song about?" Don't you want me baby? LOL I told him "it's a remix, the song it from from the 80's. I did not need to say more!
  Thu. 4/22/10 9:56am dale:

  Thu. 4/22/10 10:01am dc pat:

  Thu. 4/22/10 10:07am J-Mar:

My son shares a birthday (Sept. 23) with John Coltrane, Ray Charles and Bruce Springsteen. A good musical blend, I'd say.
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:07am slugluv1313:

YAY!!!!!!! thank you so much for playing Jack's song!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:08am Robert:

When I first heard that song on the radio long ago, I thought it was singing, "Jerky people, jerky tribe...."
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:16am trouble:

OK, Gertrude Stein and Stairway to Heaven. This is the most brilliant radio I've heard this month! All Gertrude Stein should get this treatment.
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:29am Robert:

Tell us how taking away one way to obtain guns legally does anything but increase the ratio of illegally- to legally-obrtained guns. Or how reducing the number of guns gotten legally would have any benefit as to their being used illegally.
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:40am Kent Downing:

thanks for playing Matson Jones - great show!!
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:40am annie:

i watched the full set of videos of "the singing detective" with michael gambon this week. the music and its application to the theme of the film itself was brilliant. but i love that song 'spring fever"
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:48am dc pat:

yeah...where ya really wanna be....that's right...
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:48am steveo:

This show is so awesome that I went and made an internet pledge. Right in the middle of my clicking and typing, a song comes on called "pay you back with interest" Ha.
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:48am Priscilla:

Baltimore is "much better than New Jersey"?
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:50am steveroo:

good morning trouble just tuned in now while i'm getting ready for work over on vancouver island
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:52am dc pat:

it's very simple. It's just a short drive away from where you really wanna be: DC. It's not NJ because it's cool too. I guess, I don't know what the hell he's talking about--he's from Chicago isn't he??
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:54am seang:

i wanna new drug
  Thu. 4/22/10 10:59am Kurt:

Robert, don't expect much here except the usual left wing talking points. No one's really interested in dealing with the violence part of 'gun violence' They figure the violence will disappear if the guns do. It won't and they won't.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:00am fred:

Hi from France, Trouble.
I had to tell my mother you played Fran├žoise Hardy's latest record last week. Of course she already has this one, she's been a fan of hers for years -- like since '62.
I guess an unexpected connection with a parent it the last thing you'd expect from the station, which is why it just had to happen.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:03am kevin:

sad its 11am on thursday
thankfully there are archives of your show I can listen to. Trouble, Thanks for another great show
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:03am Cecile:

Annie, email me some pics. I know some folks with French presses that might like them for gifts.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:06am kevin:

ah, noon!
I was mistaken
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:06am Cecile:

hi, all.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:07am Jennique:


Thanks for playing Love & Romance by The Slits. I never heard this version before. Lov-er-ly!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:07am brian:

hi ,cecile, all. kurt- out of curiosity, how do you suggest violence is "dealt" with?
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:08am seang:

Hi Cecile, you dowdy diva you!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:08am Ne-guh-tor:

Flirtations! YES!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:09am Carmichael:

Hey alla yous ....
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:10am Cecile:

hey, seang!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:10am ffrr:

I gave up on 'Weeds' after season 3
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:11am Cecile:

Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds, Trouble.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:11am Mario C:

ah love melvina
another good one is
no hole in my head
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:11am sebastian:

heeeeey this is an english version of "las casistas del barrio alto" by victor jara. or have i got it all wrong? anyway, cheers t.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:12am clem:

yep. when Little Boxes stopped being the Weeds theme song, it stopped being as good
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:13am Cecile:

I believe Jara must have covered it. It's credited to her.

Wow! I never knew Victor Jara covered it.

I couldn't get my head around Weeds.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:14am Carmichael:

Hey, there's the birthday boy!

I use a french press for my tea. Been doing it for 20 years now.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:14am dc pat:

one of my FAVE Mingus tunes! Thanks trouble.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:14am Robert:

Sure, I'd sell guns without a background check...because I'm in recruiting now, and I see what background checks are. They're just a way to reintroduce discrimination thru the back door. All the time I deal with prospects there's nothing wrong with except they fail the background check. And there's no effective way they can dispute them, because its a form of anonymous testimony against them. Damn shame.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:14am trouble:

thank yew! cecile. was that the theme song to weeds? i have never seen it. that song was a fave from a comp a friend gave me that i lost the list to, crazy! Hi sebastian!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:17am north guinea hills:

I believe Victir Jara covered it Spanish after Malvina reynolds if I'm not mistaken. I love Victor Jara.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:20am dc pat:

ok, the only reason you should have a gun is if you're in a militia, actually read the second amendment. You can't lop off an inconvenioent clause because you feel like it. We don't even need to talk about gun violence or anything else. But if you want to: vast majority of gun violence is between people who know each other. So the fewer guns, legal or illegal, the better.

Sorry sane people, had to say something.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:20am Jennique:

Nice to know that someone is covering Amy Winehouse respectfully.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:21am Cecile:

Robert, I also have worked in recruiting, and background checks are a great tool - if they are used correctly. If they aren't, then, yes, it isn't fair. I especially dislike how financial information is used for non-financial jobs. Just because someone declared bankrupcy does not mean they will embezzle. I'm not in staffing or recruiting anymore, but we were absolutely scrupulous about using them.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:21am Robert:

I've been to a gun & knife show only once, in Suffolk Co. on a very cold day in November in the early 1990s. The types of people who traded there are not the types of people responsible for murders in Newark. Anybody can say, vaguely, that guns used illegally are "linked to" gun shows, but what do they really mean?

Better study why murders stopped for a month in Newark, and build on that. I'm sure it was more than a statistical fluke, rather part of a general decline in violent crime.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:21am Ghost of Ricky Medlock:

Speaking of theme songs - I think Amy Winehouse's version of this song in the theme for Secret Diary of a Call Girl
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:22am Cecile:

And love this cover. I wish only the best to Wanda, and especially Amy.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:22am maria:

you can really hear who Amy WInehouse was checking out there in this Wanda jackson song. Love love
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:22am Ronald:

You know i'm no good sounds a lot like a song by Salvatore Adamo.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:24am Robert:

The trouble is, background checks as used by gov't agencies -- and that's where I'm recruiting -- are not handled a sensible way, but as an excuse, viz. the no-fly lists.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:24am seang:

how cool is Droopy? the dude is an unyielding force
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:24am maria:

huh? Wanda covering WInehouse? that I did not know, but if you say so. or maybe jennique was bein sarcastic?
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:31am Carmichael:

Comments are back! No wonder you're called "Trouble" .... :-))))
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:31am still b/p:

Salt 'N Pepa made you push the bad button real good!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:32am Lucky:

Wanda is better (of course). And she'll turn up for her gigs, too!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:33am Kansas:

Hi, The link for girlssmiles is misspelled, there are too many 'r's in 'smiles, but it's not too important. There doesn't seem to be anything Blondie or Sunday Girl up there anymore. Too bad, I haven't heard the french version in a few decades.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:36am nathan:

Digging the chicken fries this morning. Sitting in the hospital with my brother who broke both his heels last night. Dilaudid is a helluva drug.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:37am Cecile:

nathan! Your poor brother. What happened?
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:43am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:49am Kurt:

I don't have the all the answers but as a start: Real punishment would be a good place to start. I don't see anything wrong with putting murderers to death expediently.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:49am nathan:

He works construction -- fell two stories last night. Good music = good vibes = good drugs. American health system? Whatevs. Thanks for the tunes, Trouble.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:50am Robert:

dcpat seems to imply that gun violence, or maybe violence in general, just breaks out between people who "know each other" (like maybe they're friends), and that therefore the availability of weapons causes a temporary blow-up in emotion to produce lasting harm.

It ain't like that. People know the victims of their violence because THEY HATE THEIR GUTS, and they get violent because THEY'RE VIOLENCE PRONE or at least take lightly the rights of others.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:50am CJ:

Dear Trouble

Thank you for what you do (great radio!) and my kitty cat thanks you for the wonderful bird sounds too.

They make her very happy.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:51am Cecile:

Oh, dear God. I'm glad it was just his heels.
Best wishes!
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:54am dc pat:

what about the militia part of the 2nd amendment?
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:55am Kurt:

Too many people, especially those who like to solve problems by banning inanimate objects don't seem to believe in personal responsibility. Their solution is to control the actions of others through the law/government.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:58am Kurt:

To form a people's militia, the people must have firearms. This is another form of balance the founding fathers built into the constitution. The defense of the nation (not necessarily the government) should not be left solely to the government.
  Thu. 4/22/10 11:59am dc pat:

so bazookas should be legal too?
  Thu. 4/22/10 12:09pm Kurt:

Perhaps they should be. You might have trouble finding one though. I don't believe they are currently in production. Other types of weapons. Home made rockets seem to be just as effective. Go ask Hezbollah or the Israelis.
