Avatar 7:13pm djsheilab:

ARGGHHH! I missed "A Big Fat Gal Like Me!" What a title! Will listen in the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Great yet under-appreciated Genre(s) - amazing obscure under-exposed rekkids (each & every week) - one quick solid hour w/ absolutely no filler : Success.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

Haha, it's a great one, @djsheilab, by Ann Jones, one of my King Records heroes!
Avatar 7:14pm JakeGould:

@djsheilab: How could you miss a big fat girl like that? *rimshot*

Avatar 7:29pm JakeGould:

Hamtramck is where the action’s at.
Avatar 7:30pm dale:

a little flloyd cramer never hurt no one.
  7:31pm Barbie:

Go Radio Girl! Your show is amazing.
Avatar 7:32pm JakeGould:

Reading up on Hamtramck, Michigan and this seems pretty interesting, “Hamtramck was originally settled by German farmers, but Polish immigrants flooded into the area when the Dodge Brothers plant opened in 1914.” And then this, “Over the past thirty years, a large number of immigrants from the Middle East (especially Yemen), South Asia (especially Bangladesh), and Southeastern Europe (especially Bosnia and Herzegovina) have moved to the city. As of the 2010 American Community Survey, the city's foreign born population stood at 41.1%, making it Michigan's most internationally diverse city.” en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Who's seen the doc 'Sgt. Fitch: The Legacy of Sarg Records'? The film altered my ideas about the Genres that went into forming Rock'n'Roll (& how), the history of Texas music - & would appeal to crate diggers, Doug Sahm enthusiasts, Country fans - gives insight into relations of Artists & Labels, &tc.
Avatar 7:33pm JakeGould:

That Hamtramck is pretty much my demographic… Just the lack of Jews. But hey.
Avatar 7:33pm JakeGould:

@RR63: Good tip!
  7:34pm herb.nyc:

Mayb play a Bette Midler song?...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@JG: Saw it on PBS, but he's holding the Rights close to him...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm pacific standard simon:

As I recall from my Detroit days, cultural celebration fairs are popular in Hamtramck.
  7:34pm herb.nyc:

...Bette is my fav Nashville singer!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

Hi Wally!!!
  7:35pm herb.nyc:

...Bette has Barclay Ctr show tonite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

I've been to the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival more than once, and highly recommend it.
  7:38pm cheri:

becky i'm afraid I have to check out out now, but i'll keep on listening, and have a great and safe july 4th see you next week! night all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm sweeks:

Willie! Did he ever duet with Ray Price on this song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

Indeed! I saw it with my own eyes once on a tour with Merle Haggard!!
Avatar 7:40pm JakeGould:

Maybe I can pioneer opening a knish place in Hamtramck?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm sweeks:

Whoa! What a trip, Becky
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

@Jake, I don't know about knishes specifically, but the surrounding Detroit metro area has a great history of Jewish delis...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm pacific standard simon:

I was bragging to one of the fellas at work about this great new country show on WFMU, and he tuned in a show called Swinging Doors on KEXP (which is local for me). It was good, all right, but not like this.
  7:44pm cheri:

before I check out becky, keep the tunes going. bye
  7:45pm Wally:

Disgraced financier Ivan Boesky's family owned one of Detroit's storied Jewish delis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm sweeks:

Y'all might want to check out Joe Bussard's "Country Classics" radio show too. You can find it online. He's a real old timer, 78 collector, and he plays a lot of good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm pacific standard simon:

@ sweeks - thanks for the tip!
Avatar 7:48pm JakeGould:

Becky, this show is so effing great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

Joe Bussard is the real deal.
Avatar 7:50pm DanH:

@Becky, have you ever heard the Nick Cave version of Long Black Veil?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm pacific standard simon:

This version is mighty peculiar. Almost seems cheerful.
Avatar 7:52pm JakeGould:

Whoa! I suggested that Mary Wing do a “Three of a Kind” with “Long Black Veil” based on my love of the Nick Cave version. Instead of just 3 covers she played 14 (!!!) covers just a few weeks back. Here is the link to the show. wfmu.org...
  7:52pm herb.nyc:

great version (Nick's too)
Avatar 7:53pm DanH:

@JakeGould, I think the Nick Cave version is better than Johnny Williams. It really captures the mood and feeling of the song a lot better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Honky Tonk Radio Girl:

@DanH I have! My favorite is the Marijohn Wilkin version (she wrote it!).
Avatar 7:54pm DanH:

@Becky, I always thought Lefty Frizzell wrote it.
Avatar 7:56pm JakeGould:

@DanH: The version on Johnny Cash’s “At Folsom Prison” is pretty decent. Also, I always thought Lefty Frizzell spawned the song. He was the first to sing it, but she wrote it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm pacific standard simon:

This song earns a star!
  7:59pm cheri:

it's great to have you here, becky! night
  3:57pm is_potato:

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Paul Simon?!?! No way. Really? Wow. Dip me in slop if that just doesn't make my jaw drop in astonishment. I'd like to hear more of True Taylor.

Anyway, I just heard a great cover of Tom T Hall's "Turn It On, Turn It On, Turn It On" done by Charlie Sizemore. Look for it, you might like it.
