Not sure what happened but happy to be here!
Avatar 3:09pm still b/p:

Ahh, Louis, and all is extra well.
Peculiar...RealPlayer(!) info kept switchin' back and forth, giving me the track ID from the unheard playlist and then back to the track ID of the Drummer auto-stream track, even while auto-stream sound was assertin' itself entirely. Title tug o' war.

Love Sidney Bechet, great to have the show back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm doctorjazz:

Bechet is one of those musicians who put so much energy into the notes, the needle almost jumped out of the grooves.

Ah, Miss Albert and one of the greatest single-entendre songs of all time.
