Hi Becky! Nice start. Sorry about your rough summer.

Aha! Let's get cookin'!

Nice opener...

Howdy, HG! I'll be joining you on this sandy trail today, if that's alright with you. Say Hi to my buddy, Star.

Hola Melinda and Ken! Fancy seeing you here...

We do so love Michael Shelley, but what a nice surprise! Listening to you from the wilds of West Shokan and it's like you're here in our little cabin with us...come for a swim, and tell MW to take off his socks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Ken From Hyde Park:

Actually, not a bad summer for me. The worst thing I can think of is that a town inspector came by and said I must take down my above-ground pool. I just got it this summer and now I don't know what to do with the thing. Also, hi Becky and fellow commiserators!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Matt F:

Endless Bummer!
Avatar 11:26am Becky:

Shut it down, everybody. Fiveash wins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am melinda:

I have gastrointestinal distress and fatigue.
  11:31am Don and Tracy:

Hey, Don met Lowell Fulson in Oakland, circa 1990! Sez he was cool...used to see him play all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am Parq:

Becky, wondered whether you were going to do an all country show or a number-one-hit show. Digging this.

My summer has simply been uninteresting :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

Montana's woe this summer has been a jellyfish-thing invasion of the Yellowstone River. www.theatlantic.com...
  11:42am Bill in W.O.:

Love Iris Dement's cover on the Tulare Dust Merle tribute record, too.
  11:52am johnny debit:

tenant life: deadbeat landlord who's allegedly stiffed plumber (my security deposit's probably hostage, eh) - won't replace broken 30-yr-old washer, since april - and enemy neighbor's apartment smells, seemingly hasn't caught on. It doesn't agitate/spin, so now dryer's filtering's clogging with dirt and dog hair
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Ken From Hyde Park:

Internet research shows that "Busted" was written by Harlan Howard in 1962. I loved the lyrics of that one.
  11:56am Don and Tracy:

My knee blew out over the Fourth of July holiday; our friend with Parkinson's fell and the front door had to be broken down to get to her (now she's having to move to a nursing home); Don got yelled at repeatedly by a Hollywood legend; and I had to spent a total of 10 days with my mom...there was also a GIANT spider in our bed last night, which is still lurking about.
Avatar 11:58am Becky:

@Don and Tracy: Ugh, I knew some of that. What a bummer summer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Say David Lynch's name 3Xs in Summer & he will appear.
Avatar 12:16pm JakeGould:

These summer stories sound terrible. Mine hasn’t been that bad. But last week as I was going to lunch I saw a huge, bloated dead rat and then saw a dead pigeon with it’s wings spread out on the way back. And then when I went home that way I saw a beautiful, yellow warbler who was sadly dead.
Avatar 12:17pm JakeGould:

Note: Dead small animals are not a normal thing to see as a part of my job.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Parq:

I actually had a really good summer this year, but I've had some bad summers that were doozies, so I can relate to all these tales of woe. I am all too familiar with that "what the fuck was the deal with *that*?" hangover just before Labor Day.

“On the saddest of all days” my friend went to the most forlorn pound “in the scariest neighborhood” to rescue a dog – “so that it would be a happy day for SOMEone”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm MattBelow:

This is an amazing show Becky! My summer was like Big Charley's. It sucked!
Avatar 12:34pm Becky:

@MattBelow: Thanks, man. Same here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hey - good on your friend johnny
- & Power to you Becky.
Avatar 12:35pm Becky:

Thanks, RR. Really.
Avatar 12:36pm northguineahills:

Crap, I have that roots reggae track on cd, but my cds are all packed, so, I can't remember the artist and track.
Avatar 12:37pm JakeGould:

Ditto what Matt said! Nice fill-in!
  12:39pm officina:

Hey, great show Becky. Sorry 'bout your summer, but congrats on your beverage choices. Been thinking of trying the same, but haven't yet.....
Avatar 12:42pm JakeGould:

Summer of Feh?
  12:44pm Bill in W.O.:

Great show Becky. Best wishes for your new path.
Avatar 12:46pm northguineahills:

Ok, brain kicked in finally, the track from the last mic break was the Abyssinians "Ethiopia", or possibly a dub of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm SeanG:

hey northguineahills, good luck in Florida! i grew up in Coral Springs--suburban wasteland!
Avatar 12:48pm MikeF:

Congrats on the no booze and great show as always!
Avatar 12:49pm northguineahills:

Moving from NYC after 16 years to take a job in FL and getting a divorce after 9 years. Yeah, it's been that kind of summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm SeanG:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Parq:

So is this an answer song to the Merle you played in the third set?
Avatar 12:53pm northguineahills:

Thanks Sean, I'm in for reverse culture shock. I grew up FL (Jacksonville and Gainesville). I'll still have WFMU. To think the first time I listened to WFMU was 1998 on a crappy tinny stream to hear Monica, good times (back when I was still in FL).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm SeanG:

epic show Becky!
Avatar 12:59pm northguineahills:

Oh, wait, this is Shelley's slot, so, Thanks Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yeah, very nice show. Especially since you probably didn't have much time to prepare, Becky. I hope things improve for you in the future.
Avatar 1:01pm cee:

hey this was a great show!
  1:55pm Clinton Orman:

Hey Becky great show what I caught of it! My Summer has been sucky, too much work and other problems. Only one beach day and today an aborted beach misson. Wah! Also, that track is "Ethiopia" by Cedric Brooks. WHAD I WIN??!! Also - I quit drinkin' also! Cheers, teetotaller!!
  3:11pm Marie:

Hey Becky, thanks for this! What an awesome idea and actuality for a show. I've had some crummy summers, fer sher. This one has been kind of lame as I have had to work from 4 pm to 12 am--very few summer evenings out and about...
