Hey Irene, hello to fellow Trukeepers.

greetings, Irene
Avatar 12:08pm Van in DC:

Made it! A little late, but I had to go grab some stewed goat pie & stuff from the Mitsitam Cafe down the street...mmmm...Hi Irene & folks
  12:10pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Stewed Goat Pie, sounds scrummy, Van
Avatar 12:12pm Van in DC:

really good stuff :) with Garbanzo beans & cornbread.
Avatar 12:13pm Van in DC:

I eat at that place more & more frequently...such an amazing array of stuff. www.mitsitamcafe.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm DCE:

huh, that is a really interesting menu, Van
  12:16pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This track is really nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm DCE:

love the intertwining guitars and drums...reminds me of Ommadawn a bit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Mike East:

great job engineering William Tyler, Irene. I really enjoyed his music.
Avatar 12:21pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Had a look at the menu, Van, oh to have something like that in Bristol
Avatar 12:25pm Van in DC:

Yes indeed...I take full advantage of having it just 3 blocks away :)
Avatar 12:25pm the glowing one:

oh, I haven't heard Whatevershebringswesing in a long time...
  12:25pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Kevin Ayers, fab.
  12:26pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Do they have a decent beer selection, Van?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Hope you're having a decent day.
Avatar 12:27pm Van in DC:

You know, they DO have beer but I've only ever been in for lunch from work so have honestly never even looked at what they have...
  12:29pm KP:

Aye, aye, aye, Irene.
Avatar 12:33pm andymorphic:

its a long weekend in canada...this is all so perfect for our bbq
Avatar 12:38pm Van in DC:

I love it when our local classical WETA radio station plays Miles. Been listening to a lot of non-classical trumpeteers lately though, mostly Maynard Ferguson & Herb Alpert.
  12:43pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Maynard Ferguson, that's a blast from the past, he had a ridiculous range on the trumpet,
Avatar 12:44pm Van in DC:

Ya. Saw him live in Dallas waaaaay back when. Idolized him. I was a music performance major and tried to mimic him...nobody could.
  12:46pm don d:

The Flock, on vinyl, I suspect. And a great 1st album.
  12:51pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Blood Sweat and Tears, Irene you are spoiling us with some great tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Irene Trudel:

@don d, what gave it away? The massive amount of warm, friendly, crackling sounds?
  12:53pm jan:

The Last Gasp of Blood Sweat and Tears, before David Clayton Thomas got to 'em.
  12:56pm don d:

Irene, And a beautiful sound it remains-
  12:57pm Andrew:

I saw The Flock play back when I was in high school,
one of the few bands I saw back then, the Mothers of Invention being another (they had just absorbed The Turtles).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Irene Trudel:

@jan, Child is Father to the Man remains the only BS&T that holds together even today for me.
Avatar 12:59pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene & listeners. This set puts me in mind of McKendree Spring. For no perticular reason.
  1:02pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Dear Trukeepers, got to go, off to see "Beware of Mr Baker" at a wonderful venue in Bristol called The Watershed, thank goodness for this place, they show some quality movies and the beer is awesome. Irene, thank you for the great show as always, have a great week everyone
Avatar 1:02pm Van in DC:

Um. Speaking of Maynard Ferguson. That Blood, Sweat & Tears? "Musician Al Kooper has written and stated that Maynard Ferguson's orchestra inspired Kooper's formation of the band Blood, Sweat & Tears." wow.
  1:04pm jan:

@Irene- I'd be happy if you spun some more BS&T and would be pleased to hear some Blues Project...if you are taking listener requests. @Van- Kooper's Hammond B3- added such a distinctive sound to the music he was involved with. @Irene- good to hear your selections from MOV because a lot of it wasn't so pleasant to hear- IMHO
  1:05pm don d:

2d and final album by The Flock called Dinosaur Swamps --
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Mike East:

ryan trusdell rented a Lujon from us...very cool instrument name for John Lewis. Also, Gil Evans Orchestra rehearsed here last week for their annual celebration of his birthday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Mike East:

also - holy crap, just found out Billy Bragg is gonna be on WTF w/ Marc Maron podcast...looking forward to that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, McKendree Spring! @Brian, I have a couple of their albums at home. Precious little was available for download when I last looked. Maybe I can find something to play, if not today then next week.
Avatar 1:18pm Van in DC:

That was very enjoyable guitar!
Avatar 1:30pm Dave E:

Good afternoon Irene . . .
  1:38pm don d:

Hey Brian-If you are in the States on May 26, you can see McKendree Spring-playing in Nashville. I saw them in July, 1970, opening for Tull.
Avatar 1:42pm Brian in UK:

@don d blimey I'll have to get my skates on!! I remember that epic violin solo by the beardy man.
Avatar 1:45pm Dave E:

I hear birds, was I just hit on the head?
Avatar 1:46pm Dave E:

Irene - for your bird recording what kind of mic did you use?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Irene Trudel:

I'm not remembering exactly. it was either the built in mics on the Sony PCM-D50 recorder. Or I might've used this great little mic I bought years ago from a company called Microphone Madness: microphonemadness.com...
  2:19pm woof moo!!:

Love fmu, thanks for being unique

  2:31pm common:

love me some moondog!
Avatar 2:47pm v k:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for tuning in everybody! Catch you next week, with a live set by Chuck Johnson.
  Swag For Life Member 2:57pm 12539:

Thanks Irene!
Avatar 2:58pm Van in DC:

Enjoyed the show Irene - many thanks as always! Have a wonderful week!
