yeah, i know how they must have felt. it's been rough.

@Maggie B, from what I hear, communication/phones/electricity is all shot down there, hopefully they are well and communications will be brought back on line soon.

You've always been a stickler for anatomical integrity, Listener Gregory.
  12:55pm Listener Gregory:

Maybe they're saying, "Bend at the knee, not the back." That is certainly excellent advice.
  12:55pm Listener Gregory:

Well, as they say, Doug, you stickle for what you don't have.

Stickle as a verb? Sickle as a verb!

This is great, but I look forward to your set of elbow songs. That is an underappreciated genre.

  1:22pm Dean:

That was gonna be my guess, too, @Jeff G. Alaska? That's east if you go a long way.

Wrap up with George Jones and Willie Nelson's "I Gotta Get Drunk," @Doug, and you will have played *every* C&W song about alcohol.

Oh, one more: Emmylou's "Two More Bottles of Wine."

@Jeff Golick
I have three other records honoring Calley in my collection:

C Company feat. Terry Nelson • "Battle Hymn of Lt. Calley"

Mutt Cunninghamg • "Free Calley"

Big Bill Johnson • "Set Lt. Calley Free"

I also have:

Smokey Harless "Hang Lt. Calley"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Jeff Golick:


I've been DVRing, but have not yet watched (beyond the first two eps), the Ken Burns Vietnam series. I remain fascinated, appalled, and weirdly enthralled by the war and that period of American history.
  1:45pm Dean:

Phish did "Let My Lai"

Phuck Phish, Dean.
  1:46pm Dean:

I bet you could tell I am not a big Ken Burns fan. (I once produced a marathon premium called "Jazz Burns Ken.")
Avatar 1:47pm annie:

i'm not a fan either, doug, haven't been for a long time..
  1:47pm Dean:

Hot Tuna, though, that's another story. Just picked up a box set of all(?) of their releases. Good stuff.

Well done, @annie and annie's son!
  1:55pm Mr C:

Who was the Victor Feldman song originally recorded for?
  1:59pm Dean:

Spearman's memorial took place in the funeral home directly behind my house. Before we lived there, but still.
Avatar 1:59pm annie:

he has a way of telling a story without preaching and shaming.. i love his work.. he's done me proud.
  2:00pm Dean:

TED talks were tailor-made for Lawrence Lessig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Jeff Golick: assumed unassailable authoritativeness, yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Jeff Golick:

That Jazz doc was an abomination, fer sure, though I have a horse in that race.
Avatar 2:01pm annie:

TED used to be great!! ... too bad RIP TED talks.
Avatar 2:02pm annie:

Jeff, i agree, i got my then-boyfriend very upset at my grumbling through that jazz thing..
  2:02pm Mr C:

I really liked the Viet Nam doc. It brought all right back.
Avatar 2:04pm annie:

geez, doug... that was bad.. but then, not.
  2:05pm Dean:

Do you know Benoît Delbecq, @Punster? Played one of his records, featuring J.J. Avenel. I miss Avenel.
  2:05pm Dean:

I.e., played one of his records a couple nights ago.
  2:06pm Dean:

The Caine made me think of it.
  2:07pm Listener Gregory:

Delbecq is quite good. His records with Francois Houle (clarinet, whole and in pieces) are excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Mark Hurst:

Great show today, thanks, Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Jeff Golick:

Delbecq did a nice one with Fred Hersch pretty recently, too.
Avatar 2:08pm annie:

is the label on that record torn on the side? ... never mind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Doug Schulkind:

My pleasure, Mark Hurst!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Glenn Spearman is an artist I miss dearly.
Avatar 2:11pm ndbob:

I totally agree about Ken Burns Doug - smug for sure - and I never really thought before about why I dislike most Ted talks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Jeff Golick's assessment on TED Talks: "an assumed unassailable authoritativeness" is perfect.
  2:14pm Dean:

Francois Houle, yes!

Avatar 2:15pm annie:

i enjoyed TED talks for a year, maybe, picking and choosing subjects which appealed to me. it got boring.. and then they started expanding the times for presentations. ruined the challenge of short and sweet..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Doug Schulkind:

This music is essentially Zairean soukous, but the band is from Kenya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Doug Schulkind:

If you gotta go tinkle, do it now. You don't want to miss a second of the upcoming 14-minute Orchestre Baobab track!
  2:18pm Dean:

And how do you think that makes Orchestra Super Mazembe feel, hmm?
  2:19pm Dean:

If you want listeners to take a potty break, play Phish.
  2:19pm Dean:

...or a TED talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Phish should do a TED Talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Ah! Great minds comment alike!
  2:21pm Dean:

Heh, yep. Actually, TED Talks should operate more like Phish. It'd sound like the waning hours of an all-night poker game.
Avatar 2:21pm annie:

i love the video of what "People who don't like Phish" hear.

Speaking of which, I got the Konono #1 album after hearing a cut on the show a couple of weeks ago. Very enjoyable. However, I spent too much time trying to make a pun involving Koyesyes and could never get it.
