Avatar 3:09pm Michael Shelley:

Great stuff!
  3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly!
And hi Mr. Shelley!
  3:11pm Lancaster:

Hey Ted.. Just happened to come in from the heat.. got your program playing in the control room.. I got in on Tennessee Twist... sounding good!
Avatar 3:13pm ted:

Thanks Jim. I'm twistin away here.
  3:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Wooooooohoooooooo for Pee Wee Crayton!
Going nuts across that guitar fretboard!
  3:19pm Lancaster:

I don't think anyone has ever played the "Worm Song" on the air..
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Daniel Blumin has played a title "The Worm Song" on 2/13/2010, but by an artist "First Lite". The title may have auto-completed, but referred to a different song.
  3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Lancaster: *However*, you said you didn't think anyone has played "the Worm Song", not Leroy Lloyd's "The Worm Song" :)
  3:27pm Tom:

Thanks Ted, your show on Ichiban makes Thursday come alive!
  3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Alive 'n Kickin!
"Keep on the Sunny Side"!!

Hi Tom
  3:37pm Holly in NC:

Just quietly enjoying Doc
  3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

A.P. Carter standard!
I first heard that in "O Brother, Where Art Thou" and subsequently by others once I got into bluegrass. But wow, that has some authority to it, going WAY back in the Carter Family!

In fact: "In recent years, The Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia has performed a play based on A.P.'s life called "Keep On The Sunny Side". "
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Ay, but here's the rub, he still wasn't the composer for all of his songs: "Some of the songs became so closely identified with A.P. Carter that he has been popularly, but mistakenly, credited with writing them. For example, "Keep on the Sunny Side of Life" was published in 1901 with the words being credited to Ada Blenkhorn and the music credited to Howard Entwisle."

Well, it *is* a A.P. standard, he brought it to the masses.

"Hey Baby"! Love this one, a simple, catchy rock 'n roll hit!
  5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Good "Knock On Wood" bed music.
Thanks for bringing on the rock, Ted, see you later!
  5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

And a good weekend to everyone else too!
(If I see you before the weekend...have a good one anyway! :)
Avatar 5:10pm ted:

That was Willie Bobo's "Knock on Wood" See you next week...
  7:01am Richard D:

Backache from The Gouster Dance!!! Almost murdered South Side Chicago early 70s. Lost SS and even taxis would not stop to pick me up.

Back in the late 1950s through to the mid- 1960s in Chicago there were two main fashions amongst African American high school pupils – you were either an Ivy Leaguer or you were a Gouster.

Gousters their look was a bit more laid back and one would imagine probably a reaction to the slightly straight-laced Ivy League look. Gousters wore their look baggy; trousers were pleated with two or three pleats below the waist, sometimes tailored (for those with a bit more cash), shirts were also baggy with long collars and often Italian knit. The look was about being cool but not flashy.
  1:09pm Ted:

Hi Richard. Thanks the background info. I didn't know what Gouster was, but the record rocks and features some crazy drumming.
