Avatar 8:05pm Becky:

It's like Rex produced this record.
Avatar 8:06pm Ham:

whoa, what was that sound?!
Avatar 8:06pm Julea:

Howdy! Sounding mighty fine tonight! Loving this Sheb Wooley record!
Avatar 8:06pm dale:

some serious special effects happening there!
  8:07pm P-90:

Greetings Becky and Beckaroos. Cool H. Remington track, some definite Les Paul influence in the arrangement and recording. Always love me some steel guitar.
And Sheb Wooley fans just will not be denied!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm chris:

Ham, its the whiskey kicking in
Avatar 8:07pm Ham:

ah, i see.
Avatar 8:08pm JakeGould:

Love this twang on “Rich Man - Po Boy.”
Avatar 8:13pm dale:

early country artists were really the first goths.

John Barleycorn Must Die.
Avatar 8:20pm dale:

odds are 5 to 1 that this song mentions 'petting'
Avatar 8:21pm dale:

i lost.
  8:24pm P-90:

But what to rhyme with "petting", there's the rub.
"sweating"? "wetting"? "fretting", maybe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wow this set.
Avatar 8:26pm dale:

is this pre-diesel smoke dangerous curves? sounds pretty darn copyright infringin'
  8:26pm P-90:

Or regretting.
Avatar 8:26pm Julea:

Oh yeah! Love those Diesel Smoke records! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Betting, bed-wetting and regretting. Going into debting.
Avatar 8:28pm Julea:

Doye O'Dell first did "Diesel Smoke" in 1952 I think.
Avatar 8:29pm Julea:

I understand that Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage did a version in the late 40's, but I can't find it anywhere.
  8:30pm P-90:

Ken: see, they're all a bit too risque or a downer.
("bed-wetting" way out there for '55)
Avatar 8:30pm JakeGould:

Nice yodeling Grandpa Jones!
Avatar 8:31pm Becky:

Julea, do you have the Gene Autry one from the 50s?
  8:31pm wilf !:

hey grandpa, what's for supper?
  8:32pm P-90:

WFMU progrlamming a bit short on yodeling til this show pulled into town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm melinda:

Great cover!
Avatar 8:35pm dale:

becky - kitty wells does a great 'i'm a believer'
Avatar 8:35pm Julea:

I do! I also just came across Tiny Hill's version the other day.
Avatar 8:35pm Julea:

Thanks for the shout out!
Avatar 8:36pm Mailman Tom:

I consider your show and Julea's show as 2 sides of the same coin !
Avatar 8:38pm Becky:

@Dale I haven't heard that! I love Rose Maddox's House of the Rising Sun, though.
Avatar 8:38pm Julea:

Oh man! This is probably my favorite Melba record!
Avatar 8:38pm Julea:

I have been trying to meet her for the longest time. I know she lives in town, I wish she was still performing.
Avatar 8:40pm dale:

beck - can't find it on youtube but it's on her 'forever young' l.p., with that great dylan cover as well.
  8:42pm P-90:

Someone should release a compilation of Country and Western covers of Monkees faves. Unless someone already has...?
Avatar 8:42pm dale:

all i know about melba is the awful musicor-forced duets album with gene pitney. and gene and george jones was even worse!
Avatar 8:42pm Becky:

@dale but GJ + MM was great!
Avatar 8:44pm dale:

that's the one i DON'T have....
Avatar 8:45pm Becky:

@P-90 I'll keep it in mind for a future premium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wow this set.
Avatar 8:47pm dale:

i sent trouble mp3s of both those kitty wells songs years ago, so they may be in the archives.
Avatar 8:48pm Julea:

GJ + MM was quite a combo indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm jmd:

Great show as usual. Each track with more surface noise than the last! The best!!
Avatar 8:51pm Julea:

My friend Greg Germani once found the original apartment where that Porter Wagoner album cover photo was taken.
Avatar 8:53pm dale:

none of the folks in that porter cover look very surprised. i think it was building.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Bootsie:

That Keynoters track was fab!
Avatar 8:53pm dale:

or the producer did't give much motivation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm melinda:

@dale: ha!
Avatar 8:54pm dale:

this is an epic roy i never heard before.
Avatar 8:54pm Dominick:

Roy never fails
Avatar 8:56pm dale:

heard 'the rubber room' in the morning via ken. perfect porter bookend to a day!
  8:56pm P-90:

@Julea: Wow! Cool site, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bootsie:

@Julea thanks for sharing that linkage!
Avatar 8:57pm Becky:

@dale I learned about The Rubber Room via WFMU when I was a teenager!
Avatar 8:58pm Julea:

Urel Albert is such a ham.
Avatar 8:59pm dale:

beck, i was hoping he'd play townes van zandt's 'sanitarium blues'in that set
  9:00pm Listener Robert:

I found the attempt at humor in that last piece to be creepy & strained, but interesting as sort of documentary of opinion.
Avatar 9:00pm Ham:

great job!
  9:00pm P-90:

Thank you kindly, Ma'am!
Avatar 9:01pm dale:

leave the latch string out and the dogs tied up. i'm coming home!
Avatar 9:03pm JakeGould:

Someone slip some goofballs into this set? If so, kudos!
