thumbs carlisle is pretty damn good, too!
  8:04pm Sam:

Question: What's with "a-startin'"? I get dropping the g on starting, it's easier, but then why add the a- prefix? Wouldn't it be easier just to say "starting" than "a-startin"? Not trying to be insulting, I'm legitimately curious about where that accent comes from.
Avatar 8:05pm JakeGould:

Oh flop.
  8:06pm P-90:

Howdy Becky! Chaps a-floppin'!
Avatar 8:07pm Becky:

@Sam Ask Alex Battles. He's from Ohio.
  8:09pm Sam:

Will do, ma'am
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

Funny story: I had a big event for work yesterday and was aired on WNYC speaking about it today. You wouldn't believe how many people contacted me saying "HEY, YOU'RE ON THE RADIO!" as if it were a novelty.
Avatar 8:20pm JakeGould:

Some people don’t get what WFMU is… So hey! But congrats!
Avatar 8:22pm Becky:

Some of them were WFMU listeners!
Avatar 8:22pm JakeGould:

@Becky: Then they need to tell you where the upside of their head is so you can smack it!
Avatar 8:27pm dale:

this is NOT waylon?
Avatar 8:28pm dale:

it's gorgeous, none the less (is that one one word?).
Avatar 8:31pm Becky:

@dale It's not, and it's really hard to believe. According to Wendell's biography, he also did Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson impressions, but that's his natr'l voice.
Avatar 8:44pm dale:

i have no idea here you find so many great 45s. the hunt must be long and pricey.
Avatar 8:45pm Becky:

@dale The great thing about collecting honky tonk records is that generally they are priced for the common man. Rockabilly, not so much.
Avatar 8:46pm dale:

rex probably pays through the probiscus.
  8:46pm P-90:

1) "Hell Bound Train", great song title. OK song.
2) C'mon, spill it @Becky, what show were you on on WNYC yesterday? Your die-hard HTRG fans deserve to know.
Avatar 8:49pm dale:

my guess is leonard lopate. can probably go find it in the archives.
Avatar 8:51pm Becky:

I actually have no idea. I haven't heard it yet myself!
Avatar 8:55pm Becky:

This record is SO bad. I love it.
Avatar 8:56pm dale:

this is pretty horrible. singers sound like they did the 'three's company' theme song.
  8:57pm clem:

they're a flop
Avatar 8:59pm dale:

...but it was horrible in a cheesy good way.
  9:00pm P-90:

Best guess IS Leonard Lopate. Unless it was brian Lehrer?
