What did Delaware? Idaho, but Alaska
  6:16am Meghan:

Delaware a New Jersey!
  6:17am Chuck:

Ever calculate how many songs on average you play per show, Meg? Just curious...
  6:19am Meghan:

Each show is usually around 40-45 songs..... depending on the length....
  6:24am Dave B:

And Tax Free Shopping!
  6:31am Chuck:

How do people yodel? Never could figure that out. It's a strange noise for people to make. hehe....
  6:33am Meghan:

in the throat I would assume....
  6:35am Dave B:

Not nearly as cool sounding as Tuvan or Inuit Throat Singing...
  6:37am Chuck:

Anybody see "Mars Attacks" where it's yodeling that kills the aliens? Ha!
  6:41am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

BALTIMORE!!! Maryland! :-)

we camped in WV a few years ago.

I thought we were near there, but not actually IN there....
  6:50am Chuck:

I was wondering if you were gonna play this one, Meghan! Yay, JD! Yes, I am a geek... hehe...

Remember the 70s hit "Afternoon Delight"? That's them...
  6:55am Dave B:

Wow! Louis AND Spike back to back... can it get any better?
  6:57am Chuck:

What do they have in WV apart from coal mining?
  6:58am Chuck:

Woohoo!!!! Phil is one of my favs!
  6:59am Meghan:

Appalachian Mountains.... meaning hillbillies...
  7:00am Dave B:

This guy:
  7:00am Chuck:

Easy there, Meg! If it weren't for hillbillies I wouldn't be here. My dad was one!
  7:02am Chuck:

He was from a little town in the panhandle of VA called Penington Gap....
  7:02am Dave B:

Homer Hickman was from WV... Rocket Boys (book) and October Sky (film) were both pretty good.
  7:02am Meghan:

Chuck do you remember me, Tim and Gary talking about Dancing Outlaw and quoting from it.... this song is about them!
  7:04am Chuck:

Don't remember, sorry Meg. So many conversations about all sorts of stuff with the old mold crew. I sort of miss those days. Made life more interesting...
  7:06am Meghan:

  7:08am Chuck:

Oh, yeah!!! Now that I've seen the video I remember this goofy character!
  7:19am Chuck:

Wow! Britta has such a terrific voice! I'll have to seek this out now....
  7:19am Meghan:

  7:20am Elwyn:

Hey dudes & dudettes,

I just back from the record store and got complimented on my Yo La Tengo t-shirt. :-) I bought Judas Priest's "Turbo" in card sleeve format and Crystal Visions: the Best of Stevie Nicks - it even comes with a DVD of her videos!
  7:21am Meghan:

Hey there Elwyn!
  7:21am Chuck:

Good day, Elwyn!
  7:22am Thanley:

  7:22am Thanley:

who wrote that nico song?
  7:25am Meghan:

Bob Dylan wrote it for her
  7:27am Thanley:

oh cool,thanks!
  7:34am Elwyn:

Dean and Britta sound surprisingly awake for this time of morning (I'm assuming Meghan made them come in before noon).
  7:35am Meghan:

They had massive jet lag. They had just come back from London....
  7:40am Elwyn:

I remember "Satisfaction"! I think I watched that for Justine Bateman.
  7:42am Elwyn:


I wasn't satisfied.
  7:59am Elwyn:

Woohoo! Australia!
  8:01am Meghan:

hehe... there you go Elwyn
  8:13am jeff p:

not very chatty on here this morning....
  8:14am Meghan:

Yeah, that is what happens when there is an interview.....
  8:16am Dave B:

I've been working since about 4:30... Problems over in Moscow, sux bigtime being on call...
  8:17am Meghan:

Cause of the fires?
  8:18am Elwyn:


I've got a couple of questions about America:
a) Why do different states have different taxes on stuff?
b) Could someone explain to me about Indian reservations.
  8:19am Dave B:

Not 100% sure. Might be related. Our network over there burped bigtime waking me up... Seems better now.
  8:19am Chuck:

A) Apart from federal income tax the states control their own taxes in whatever way they see fit.
  8:20am Meghan:

Elwyn, each state governs itself, so they have say on their taxes, as for Indian Reservations, that could take a long while! We took their land and gave them a horrible little plot.
  8:21am Chuck:

B)I will need a more specific question in order to answer. I studied Native Americans in college.
  8:24am Elwyn:

B) wasn't really a specific question.
I was watching the second last episode of "Wonderfalls" and it's set on a reservation.

The Native Americans (guests on the show) were having a disput on how to run their reservation. One of them, a lawyer, wasn't supportive of casinos. Others were supportive.
One of the regular characters had a fraction of Native American heritage and wanted to claim it to get money to pay off her student loans.

How accurate is all that?
  8:25am Chuck:

Oh, I think I know sort of what you were driving at, Elwyn. Indian reservation are considered autonomous states under the juristiction of the US department of the Interior. It's been a mess since they started...
  8:27am Elwyn:

When did it start?

Another thing was that another of the main characters was visiting the reservation just to get cheap cigarettes because she wasn't paying tax on them or something then the lawyer made her full price.
  8:27am Chuck:

Happens all the time, Elwyn. In order to claim such the Dept. of the Interior has some screw ball rules for you to prove that you are a member of a specific Native American group. Government crap!
  8:27am Dave B:

If I remember correctly, Native Americans were relocated to reservations in the mid 1800's to "protect them" from encroaching settlers.

As far as the fractional heritage, that goes back to the "one drop rule"
  8:28am jeff p:

  8:29am Dave B:

  8:30am Chuck:

In my studies of this some Native American groups don't even get recognized at all! So the whole ethnic group gets NOTHING under the government rules!
  8:30am jeff p:

  8:30am Chuck:

  8:31am Elwyn:

Virginia is scaring me. It's making me think of "Deliverance"! - I know that's Georgia.

I think Australia has something similar but without the casinos. It's a mess too with alcohol, petrol sniffing and child abuse. The previous government introduced laws a few years ago that some considered racist because it made aborigines have to do stuff - OK. I can't remember what but they were tougher laws.
  8:31am Andy in Berlin:

Hi everyone. Just got in. I guess I'm going to have to get this one on the archives.
  8:32am Dave B:


(aw crap, they gained independence in 1986)
  8:32am Dave B:

@Elwyn - Rabbit Proof Fence
  8:33am Chuck:

Certainly world history proves that "whitey" will stiff any indiginous population. It's a crime, I say!
  8:33am Meghan:

OH, good one Dave!

@ Andy Hello Andy!
  8:34am Elwyn:

Hey there! *waves*
  8:34am Chuck:

Morning, Andy! Oh, wait it's afternoon there isn't it?
  8:36am jeff p:

the dc set kicks a lot more ass than the virginia set, i see
  8:36am Dave B:

@Meg - Good call with the Black Dots version over the more popular ROIR session and Banned...
  8:36am Elwyn:

This is the cheese set!
  8:38am Andy in Berlin:

Waving back at you! Yes its like 2:40 over here
  8:41am Chuck:

Thanks for distracting me from going into an anti-white man tirade kids! I could have gotten ugly about it.
  8:41am johN:

washington dees nuts (please do excuse)
  8:43am Chuck:

Gil Scott is always cool! Why don't people play his stuff more....
  8:43am Dave B:

@jeff p -

  8:47am Chuck:

You've gotta be kidding, Meg!
  8:48am Chuck:

Loony, loony, loony....
  8:48am Dave B:

When we reach Carolina please avoid JT...
  8:49am Chuck:

JT is NOT an option for Meghan...
  8:49am Meghan:

Exactly Chuck! He's part of my rules.... No JT
  8:50am jeff p:

Jethro Tull?
  8:50am Chuck:

I do have John Denver covering "Carolina In My Mind" if you're interested. It was on his second album....
  8:51am Skirkie:

I've been hated by some fetuses (feti?) in my time. You just can't please some folks/feti
  8:51am Dave B:

heh - I know, just looking to raise your hackles!

Hey - pretty spiffy blog featuring nothing but covers!
  8:52am Dave B:

@skirkie - No fetus can beat us!
  8:52am Meghan:

  8:52am Adrian in London:

Bugger, just tuned in and missed D&B. I'll listen again. They were great at the Barbican in London doing 13 Most Beautiful.
  8:53am Meghan:

Jeff P- I do have a friend that would have Jethro Tull on their personal list of Not Allowed. He hates flutes in rock songs
  8:54am jeff p:

I'm with your friend there, Meghan
  8:56am Dave B:

@Jeff P & Meghan -

  8:57am jeff p:

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking of, Dave.
  8:57am Dave B:

  8:58am jeff p:

The Red State Review next week
  5:54pm Ben:

Hey, I actually saw the Dambuilders when they played Lupo's. Nice to hear them again.
