Has there *ever* been a comprehensive anthology of Arthur Alexander's work?
Avatar 11:35am kat330:

glenn, Philo and I continued the film discussion started yesterday and both of us recalled a very fine French film from 2001: "Read My Lips" (Sur Mes Lèvres), which I'd recommend to any all cinephiles.

@van _ I remember a number of blizzards when I was growing up in Maryland - but glad I missed snowmageddon:)

Ha, that was your intro to D.C.?! Guess it was all a downhill breeze since then.
Avatar 11:38am ndbob:

@Michael - there are several compilations - but I don't think there's one that crosses labels
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:38am Uncle Michael:

I have Rainbow Road, Doug. It's just a tease. There needs to be a Bear Family box set.
Avatar 11:40am glenn:

love bear family's compilations. hate bear family's prices.

@Uncle Michael
Few two-word phrases get my pulse racing like "Bear Family."
Avatar 11:41am Va Van:

Ah DC. Snowmageddon to welcome me, then that earthquake in 2011 on my 50th birthday. The National Monument is STILL closed because of it. I don't think DC likes me.

{louder} Blood Simple!

Re Arthur Alexander: Razor & Tie's ultimate also pretty good for earlier stuff, but missing the essential "Girl Who Radiates That Charm". So, no. No there is not.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54am Doug Schulkind:

I was sitting right here in Studio P during the 2011 Quake. Saw my computer monitor start vibrating. Knew it right away.
Avatar 11:55am Va Van:

Actually I was in Dallas for that year. Here, there, and back again.
Avatar 11:55am Holly in NC:

Actually it's a Jamie Lee Curtis movie ;-)

@ Uncle Michael bit late but California Bloodlines is far and away John Stewarts best LP. His wife has a new one out.
Avatar 11:57am kat330:

glenn, I've observed a rather one-track-mind of you lately. Is it cabin fever? ;)
Avatar 11:58am Holly in NC:

Doug, I love you xo

That was my Paul Sherratt impression. In a few weeks you will yearn for the retro of the maths sums.

Avatar 11:59am glenn:

one track mind? glenn confused.
Avatar 11:59am kat330:

I only noticed in the past month or so, lots of Minnie play on the FMU streams. Doesn't appear any new release or ? Special anniversary?
Avatar 12:01pm Holly in NC:

@kat - Joe McG always plays a lot of Minnie, where you listening to him?
Avatar 12:01pm Van in DC:

Enjoyed your show Doug!
  12:01pm Brian in UK:

No need for a special occasion kat.

Good work at the seam Mr Drummer.
Avatar 12:01pm kat330:

@glenn: Your links are less to wildlife and political absurdism and more to real wild life.

New tradition - Holly responding to Kat after show is over!
