Do play some Chet Atkins tonight without talking over him.. That man could play.
Avatar 8:06pm dale:

this song started like disco inferno.
Avatar 8:07pm Becky:

@DJ 2 I'll see if I can get to it! There's a big 'ol stack of records here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar 8:10pm Becky:

@RR They've got a few pickers, yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...not just a loose rumor then...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Parq:

Becky, I don't know about the other four people who have been waiting for this show, but I think it's sounding great so far.
Avatar 8:17pm Becky:

@Parq: Much appreciated.

Glen Campbell is the ultimate monster.
Avatar 8:34pm dale:

Avatar 8:34pm Mailman Tom:

Theme music for Reel Wild Cinema, hosted by Sandra Bernhart !
Avatar 8:35pm KP:

Gee Cees! I get it!
Avatar 8:35pm Becky:

@dale: You'd have a hell of a time figuring out which of the Wrecking Crew killer guitar solos were him.
  8:36pm Boots Randolph:

@"I get it" - Glen Campbell was also in The Fleas
Avatar 8:37pm dale:

oh, found this.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Parq:

Mrs. Parq and I are celebrating our anniversary and the champs has been poured. Bubbly and twangy -- now that's an evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ironic Fender was a West Coast company - except, Bakersfield.
Avatar 8:40pm dale:

the champs? seals and crofts?
  8:40pm roy clark:

roy clark?
Avatar 8:43pm dale:

as much as i hate most artists late work, i found myself driving upstate once and singing 'rhinestone cowboy' as loud as i could to the radiola.
Avatar 8:43pm KP:

I saw Roy Clark at the NY State Fair not that long ago.
Avatar 8:44pm Becky:

  8:45pm keith:

Missed the start of the show, but after about three tunes, I figured out "all instrumentals" - very cool idea, please do it again - Pig Robbins, please
Avatar 8:45pm KP:

Don Rich's motorcycle might as well killed Buck too.
Avatar 8:45pm dale:

play it! it was during his tanya tucker coked out phase if i recall.
Avatar 8:46pm JakeGould:

Hello! I was about 7 or 8 years old when “Rhinestone Cowboy” and I liked it then and I still like it now!
Avatar 8:46pm Kris Holmes:

lol at guitar solo face, i don't know if i do this or not, maybe i do?
Avatar 8:47pm KP:

i have bass face
Avatar 8:47pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I like the recent slew of instrumentals you have been playing, Becky.
Avatar 8:47pm Mailman Tom:

Are these mainly B sides ?
Avatar 8:48pm Becky:

@Mailman Tom: It's all your perspective, man. No, most of these are double-sided instros.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi. Dave Hill played GC's "Ghost on the Canvas" and I liked it a lot.
Avatar 8:51pm KP:

Avatar 8:51pm Kris Holmes:

Scratchy is my JAM, crazy, you can play this at Northern Soul, Mod & Funk nights & it works. Gotta be one of the earliest breakbeats too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy anniversary, Parq!
Avatar 8:53pm JakeGould:

Oh damn… These instrumentals are too good.
Avatar 8:54pm Becky:

@Kris Holmes: Scratchy is SICK. I never say SICK but it is SICK.
Avatar 8:54pm dale:

Avatar 8:58pm KP:

Wammack and his Gibson still around. That was stunning!
Avatar 8:59pm KP:

Sounds good, Clem!
Avatar 9:00pm JakeGould:

Okay… Came in late but will be starring this show since I thought only the last set was instrumentals. Great work!
