50th anniversary of "Alice's Restaurant"! amazing.

I was expecting aliens but this is great.

Hey there lifers! Welcome to our lil' family gathering!

Arlo sounds well. wonderful.
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:11pm βrian:

I served Arlo six cups of coffee while he chain-smoked and his companions drank like fish. 1984 or thereabouts.

Pete Seeger was a similar story singer. RIP

I love his voice, its so craggily!
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:17pm βrian:

Arlo does vocal fry?

love this man's intelligence.

Reminds me of "The Lives of Others" (Das Leben der Anderen)

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:21pm melinda:

Good movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:24pm melinda:

Craggily sounds like a combo of crackly and craggy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:25pm Linda Lee:

i've never heard Arlo discuss the song this way. great!
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:27pm Kate:

I am SO excited about the prospect of getting my news from traveling bards.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:28pm Emily:

That would be so cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:29pm kimzilla:

Wait, is that where Nick the Bard got his nickname? Why am I just getting this.

Nick the Storyteller! 'The Bard' typically refers to Shakespeare ;-)

Thanks Common!

Big props for Emily for getting this awesome interview.
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:33pm βrian:

Huh. I always thought "City of New Orleans" was by Steve Goodman. I guess he still owns it, in a sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:34pm BennettCap:

Great interview!
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:34pm Kate:

routine is the heart of spirituality

Oh, garsh. It was a dream come true...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'd like to hear his opinion of the rappers you see on the TV machines. What kind of story are they telling when they're waving around big wads of cash in Bentleys in front of mansions and they're making millions doing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:35pm melinda:

@Kim yes! This is a big deal. Also, he's such a great interviewee.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:35pm Emily:

He was SUCH a great interviewee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:36pm kimzilla:

Ken, yeah, I wonder what he thinks. But I'd also hope that he's also come across some of the hip hop artists that also tell these complex stories also, sometimes off the cuff. There is some incredible story telling in rap, if its done right.
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:37pm βrian:

@Kate: I know that's right, I know that's right, I know that's right, I know that's right ...

But really, I do.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:37pm Kate:

holy cow no wonder I love him so much, he is willing to be vulnerable and he's asking us to do that with each other
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:38pm Linda Lee:

anyone familiar with folk music generally can 'get' hip hop in context. boasting isn't relegated to that genre either!
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:38pm βrian:

Martha wasn't a fan of artists' statements? What??
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:38pm Emily:

@Ken from HP: we talked about that a little bit, actually—he said he looks at them as really talented performers/entertainers sometimes, but that MOST of the pop music out there now just isn’t storytelling—it isn’t the same thing to him (we didn’t actually address rap directly, just “top 40” stuff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:39pm kimzilla:

"first time, last time" straight to the heart...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:40pm Linda Lee:

hip hop is unique to popular music tho .. hard to lump it in with top 40 ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:40pm chris:

this is great, Emily and Kimzilla.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:40pm queems:

this is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:40pm Linda Lee:

it's closer to the blues than top 40!
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:40pm Kate:

jesus
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:41pm melinda:

Martha G had a point, but that's sort of an unfair way to make it. The students were responding to a request, their descriptions were not necessarily valuable or accurate representations of what they planned to do, not nice to call them idiots.
  Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:41pm Hypertoast:

I think rap from the 80's had much more in common with country and folk music than it does with most hip hop of today. It was mostly story telling then

  Wed. 12/20/17 7:42pm Emily:

Excellent points Linda & hypertoast—true, true.
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:43pm βrian:

@melinda: Yes, I agree. And I've seen that, where teachers didn't own up to what they were asking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:45pm Linda Lee:

Hypertoast, hip hop still seems pretty clearly grounded in storytelling now ~ but it's evolved stylistically, in terms of narrative style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:46pm Linda Lee:

odd to think Arlo's reached an age & a station in life that wasn't allowed his father. i wonder if he reflects on that any.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:46pm Kate:

OK now I'm crying. We know each other wordlessly.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:47pm dez:

havens was amazing. watched him do a set from 10 feet away. blown away by his spirit

nice interview, Emily.
well done!
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:49pm Kate:

Emily that was beautiful.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:49pm Emily:

Thank you, Linda! So good to see you on here :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:50pm Linda Lee:

nice to be here Emily. thank you! :-)
"Alice's Restaurant" is such a rich song it's actually nourishing to hear. :-D
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:50pm βrian:

"Guítar!'
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:50pm melinda:

@Linda I'm sure he does. I think Huntington's disease is highly heritable too, so he dodged that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:51pm Linda Lee:

@melinda ~ though he's not a well guy, as i recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:53pm melinda:

I agree, it is a nourishing song. I forget how good it is and how much I loved it when I was in high school and first heard it and saw the movie.That's too bad about the poor health, though.
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:53pm Kate:

yes!!!!
  Wed. 12/20/17 7:54pm Kate:

he left the dead squirrels at the base of the tree too, to scare away the other squirrels

Or maybe they were sent to a farm up north?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It's something to think of how until the modern age, oral stories would get passed down as such and many things forgotten. Today, so much stuff is saved (tweets, emails, digital photos, etc.). We kind of expect things to be preserved forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:56pm Linda Lee:

Ken ~ we 'record' our lives & we'll never remember them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:57pm listener 126464:

Thanks again DJs

Jeff you must be family!

BTW, Emily - the best Arlo interview I've ever heard.
Avatar    Wed. 12/20/17 7:58pm βrian:

Maybe we'll have some indictments to cheer us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:58pm Linda Lee:

ain't holdin my breath on that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy holidaze, lifers!

Happy Holidays Ken! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 7:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, LL. We'll meet again on the boards soon, I'm sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/20/17 8:00pm Linda Lee:

maybe even tomorrow morning at the crack o' dawn. :-D
