@dale: how are you doing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm ultradamno:

Songs from a previous life.
Avatar 8:05pm Davee:

who was listening to Clay Pigeon this morning???
Avatar 8:05pm Becky:

Hey @Davee - Don't have any GJ with me tonight, but I'll play it next week!
Avatar 8:06pm JakeGould:

Wait? What was the thing from last week?
Avatar 8:06pm Davee:

Hi Becky that would be great thank you!
Avatar 8:07pm Davee:

Does not matter - really - this stuff is great too
Avatar 8:09pm dale:

yeah, how is your wang dang doodle?
Avatar 8:14pm Kamp Climax:

Johnny married one of the most beautiful women to ever live. Hank Williams's Ex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Switchblade Batman:

Oh wow I was actually thinking of this song not too long ago Becky, but I couldn't come up with the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Huh...I'm familiar with Johnny Cash's version of this. Now I must see which came first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm ultradamno:

I think Lead Belly beat them both to it.
Avatar 8:18pm Kamp Climax:

Ferlin was handsome on his album covers.

please don't tell me revisionist history is gonna erase kaw-liga
Avatar 8:20pm Kamp Climax:

STOPPPPPPPPP Becky. Please don't do this.
Avatar 8:22pm Becky:

Y'all can get over your damn selves and listen to five minutes of real talk. I'm playing country music. I'll continue to do so.
Avatar 8:23pm Kamp Climax:

We're with you, just disagree. Marvin just sand about some offensive things if you listen closely. We could do this all day and night, is all I'm saying.
Avatar 8:24pm dale:

  8:25pm yippie:

Avatar 8:25pm Becky:

We all have to draw lines. The important thing is to listen to others. That's all.
  8:25pm A.T.F.:

Spin them discs, you did not write em..history at 45 rpm....
Avatar 8:26pm Smokestack:

Thanks for reading that, Becky
Avatar 8:27pm Becky:

Thanks, Smokestack. Jeez, you have a five minute mic break and everyone feels threatened.
Avatar 8:27pm Kamp Climax:

True. You did what you thought was right. I understand. I just disagree and hope you understand that point as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Switchblade Batman:

I think 5 minutes of real talk isn't too much to ask for. I appreciated someone's thoughts on it. And I think it's cool that you were aware enough to acknowledge someone else's feelings when you don't have to.
  8:30pm A.T.F.:

country scat??
  8:37pm Jake:

Seems that trolls are everywhere these days.
  8:39pm JakeGould:

You know what? I like this music.
Avatar 8:40pm Kamp Climax:

What becky did was honorable. This is true. But A.T.F.'s point is also right.
Avatar 8:40pm Becky:

  8:41pm Tommy in Neversink:

I wonder if the guy Johnny Paycheck is asking not to play A-11 is the same guy Johnny said "Excuse me I've got someone to kill" to
  8:42pm Tommy in Neversink:

Becky , thank you so much for doing this show . I know takes a lot of work and effort
  8:42pm david m colangelo:

it is art, like literature that uses the N word. appropriate for the era, not to be censored, but presented for review. thoughtful people welcome thoughtful discourse...
Avatar 8:42pm Becky:

Thank you, Tommy. It does. But it's also my favorite thing to do in the whole world. So it's worth it.
  8:45pm A.T.F.:

htrg how do you keep so many 45s organized? or not you can only fit so many in those old metal boxes..
  8:46pm Officer Dick Downey:

As the unofficial cannabis expert in Illinois, I rate your show as connoisseur-level & tasty!
  8:47pm Tommy in Neversink:

BTW Becky have you ever checked out an old FMU show "Trash Twang and Thunder" . It was a more electrified and raunchy strain of country .It's in the archive
Avatar 8:47pm Becky:

@ATF - Many, many white cardboard boxes labeled "Country A-B; Country C; Motown; Instrumentals" etc
  8:48pm Tommy in Neversink:

..and ,of course there was also "Radio Thrift Shop" another FNU country show also in the archives....I assume
  8:48pm exile-on-hicks-street:

Ironically, on sports radio, the conversation is about the need for meaningful discourse regarding history, too.
  8:48pm Drunken Creep:

Soundin' great! Glad to listen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm ultradamno:

Even the label name is political
  8:50pm exile-on-hicks-street:

Here it’s about language used in the context of the culture... over there it’s about ball players kept out of the HOF because they were doing things that were common in the culture at the time.
Avatar 8:51pm Becky:

@ultradamno lol
  8:52pm Marc Grobman:

Love tonight's eepin' (sp?) theme!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Becky. Enjoy the week!
Avatar 8:59pm Kamp Climax:

Agreed Ken.

  10:50pm Listener Robert:

Unfortunately the process of defining offense down is a progressive one: The more we seek not to step on others' sensibilities, the more those sensibilities swell, until there's no place left to walk between them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

a.) Popping in to let you know I am diggidy-dawg-digging every erpisode in Podcast form! <3
b.) ...the writer of that e-mail is very thotful - not @ all hysterical - & really appreciate that...It's hard to admit - but if the tune said something about BlackSambo & his watermelon - would anyone touch it w/ a 90' pole?? There's the WarnerBros. (I think it is) cartoons they added a Warning / Apology to - saying these don't reflect our views now - & they were WRONG - but we distribute them as Vintage Art...
...One wrinkle: HankWilliams is widely believed to have been part Choctaw...
