Hello Spodiodi - have a lifetime virtual transfer pass!
Avatar 3:43pm David Dichelle:

βrian: Many of these songs are cautionary tales of some sort, I suppose.
  3:46pm spodiodi:

sweet. many thanks
Avatar 3:54pm Sem:

This set's got the vibe of a legendary kitchen party in Cape Breton, a land where Scots of the Clearances, Irish of the Famine, and the French of Normandy and Brittany get their roots on. All you can do is hang on and go along.

Doctorjazz: The Goshorn Brothers in fact from Cincinnati

It's a cool track, in a 60s hippy way (reminding more of Dead as it goes on)

These guitars on African Pop just drive me crazy (in a good way).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Stanley:

David, is this Guinean? It's hard to place.
Avatar 4:45pm hilmar:

exciting landscape, the "leipziger tieflandsbucht" (on the photograph?)... thats why we urgently need access to subways of any kind...guten abend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Stanley:

Thumbs up to the thumb piano.
Avatar 4:49pm David Dichelle:

Hallo Hilmar! The dirt road in the picture runs along the Saxony-Saxony-Anhalt border out behind Zwenkau - no (physical) subways anywhere near there, I'm afraid.
Avatar 4:49pm David Dichelle:

Stanley, yes that was Guinean - well placed!

RB Leipzig advance to knockout stage (final 16) in the UEFA Champions League.

Thanks NGH - that will make some of my neighbors very happy.

deutsch cumbia. I suppose senor coconut counts as he has/had dual Chilean/German citizenship.
Avatar 5:14pm hilmar:

sounds like kurt schwitters in india... i am fan of roter stern ..which are much more better than rb, but only play on sporting grounds like on the photograph above...
Avatar 5:19pm David Dichelle:

Hilmar: Funny, yes it does look a bit like the field.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm chresti:

Well, I fell asleep for awhile back and thought I heard you shouting, is everything okay over there? I'm slowly waking up with some fine continental coffee..
Avatar 5:39pm David Dichelle:

Sorry, Chesti, I think I was just holding myself back forcefully from getting too political.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm chresti:

Not that, I think it was about the lack of dates on some of the records, you were lamenting
Avatar 5:44pm David Dichelle:

Oh that - yes, it's so hard to live up to obsessiveness when those dates are missing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm chresti:

Avatar 5:45pm northguineahills:

I think I've heard of Sven-Eric Johanson….
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm chresti:

I really do appreciate it when the date is provided on the playlist, thanks.
Avatar 5:49pm David Dichelle:

I always do what I can.

Greetings from Warsaw... Another fun show and for myself and a bunch of friends a great soundtrack for the tonight's celebration of Olga Tokarczuk's Nobel Prize in literature!!!
Avatar 6:17pm David Dichelle:

Good evening, Filip - thanks for checking in and congratulations to Olga Tokarczuk!

Thanks Esteemed Conductor David!

Thanks, Coel, enjoy the evening!
Avatar 6:35pm northguineahills:

Ok, don't know Vasks, but he sounds tied to the Baltic Holy Minimalism movement....
Avatar 6:37pm David Dichelle:

Penderecki is certainly one influence.
Avatar 6:39pm David Dichelle:

By the way, NGH, the dirt road on the playlist photo is precisely the nearby old Prussian-Saxon border, which we spoke about once before.
Avatar 6:42pm northguineahills:

Which Saxony?
Avatar 6:43pm northguineahills:

(there are two states w/Saxony in their names...)
Avatar 6:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh David, This is just what I need to hear after visiting my mom!
Avatar 6:44pm David Dichelle:

Excellent question. It was the border between the Kingdom of Saxony (today's Saxony) and Prussia's Province of Saxony (now much of Saxony-Anhalt).
Avatar 6:44pm David Dichelle:

Hey there Franco, glad it works for you!
Avatar 6:46pm northguineahills:

ahhh, thanks, David!
Avatar 6:49pm David Dichelle:

Saxony is the tree side of the road, by the way - Saxony-Anhalt to the left.
Avatar 6:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Ha! My sense of humor is back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm unpopularfred:

Just tuned in, is this today's Roud index song?
Avatar 6:51pm David Dichelle:

Hey Unpopularfred, with a bit of imagination, sure!
Avatar 6:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Ventura Highway in Bulgarian perhaps?
Avatar 6:53pm David Dichelle:

Franco, I will see what I can do by next week!
