FYI, all, this was recorded Wednesday afternoon, at home. I had invited Phil Spector to engineer the session, but he wasn't able to make it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21am Stanley:

Jeffrey - I just looked up the odds of winning the jackpot in the US. They are around 1 in 300 million, so your $500 reduces this dramatically to 1 in 600,000. Factor in all the lucky charms, prayers, incantations and positive focus and this could reduce the odds even further.
Avatar 6:21am Creature Boy:

Cuz if we were truly live I would think the Ramones' jangly "Questioningly" would go nicely

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50am Jeffrey Davison:

duke, good morning, and you got that right, sad to say. I have to believe that the planet will come out of this with a greater understanding. The 1918 flu came long before we were all connected up in the way we are today. It seems clearer what needs to be done. Now, if we can only insist on what we need, the planet might turn out okay in the end. But we have to hurry...

@jeffrey Mrs. duke and I were having that conversation last evening. I tend to be pessimistic by nature, she's more practical/optimistic. She thinks this is our opportunity to shed a lot of things we don't need and get down to what's important.

The disparity of income must be addressed, on a global scale. Clearly, we must prepare for the next pandemic, as everyone who is in a position to know has said that these are a certainty.

Avatar 7:25am Ignatatus666:

More traffic means people going back to work and also commerce. The times I was traveling was in rush hour though. So definitely back to work which is what we need to see. I just know that will eventually mean more businesses like ours will start to pick up again. I’ve been is several neighborhoods and saw blocks of parked taxis. That’s bad for the consumer and the industry. Hopefully must of the yellow and green cabs are leased daily not owner operator

Mortgage payments and rents are suspended. That’s not true?

Rent is not suspended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41am Jeffrey Davison:

Ignatatus: yes, the only way we're going to move forward (as a race of beings on a planet) is together. Yes, there is a lot of finger-pointing now. However, as someone pointed out to me that the Renaissance came after the Black Plague, there has to be a reckoning of what worked during this time and what didn't. This is a necessary step in order to make change...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41am EG_Astro:

Evications are suspended. Deblasio is talking about a rent "deferment" which is unhelpful and asking tenants to pay double rent when things are "back to normal"

Avatar 7:44am TDK60:

Ignatatus666, I think they have an eviction moratorium but not a rent/mortgage one. (NY State.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44am Jeffrey Davison:

The leaders in NY need to do more, as the eviction suspension, while welcome, isn't near enough. Nor are the mortgage deferments, as people with no income won't be able to pay the 4-month lump sum payment at the end of the deferment, with no income having come in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44am Jeffrey Davison:

Good morning, Gavin in Bristol, and Kevin-san.
Avatar 7:47am Ignatatus666:

The rent of course should be suspended and not expected all at once. The protection for tenants would be the back rent broken down for a year and added to the those months rent. With the mortgage the payments should be added to the back end of the payment schedule so there are no penalties and no 3/4 months mortgage payment up front.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48am Jeffrey Davison:

As far as I know, there is no rent, mortgage or condo payment suspension or relief. I guess one of the tricky parts is that with a renter, there isn't a back end, necessarily, as the lease has an expiration, unless landlord and tenant agree to a three month extension after the term of the lease.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49am EG_Astro:

Asking tenants to pay 2x the rent for however months it takes them to "pay it back"? And what if a tenant needs or wants to move? There isn't a back end like a loan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49am Jeffrey Davison:

EG_Astro...yeah, that's a sticky wicket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51am EG_Astro:

It's a lot to consider and figure out, but what folks need is relief so we don't have people deciding btwn food or rent, and going out unnecessarily.

You said it @Jeffrey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53am EG_Astro:

You don't go around gutting the state budget however as we are seeing in NY. It's a shame. : /

But thank you very much for your show @Jeff. It's a much needed relief and peaceful 3 hrs. : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55am Jeffrey Davison:

The great unknown is if people who were laid off or furloughed will have jobs, or if the job is waiting, when we will all go back to work, and even then, how long before people begin to make a similar amount to what they had been making. This is especially true for self-employed, gig workers, waiters, etc, etc...

I always felt that The Lower 48 was underrated, and alas, largely unknown. Not all their stuff hits me, but when it works, like this song, it's great.

I'm being self-centered here, but this is really tough on dancers: no shows for the foreseeable future, but also a very reduced ability to train, leading to risk of injury when they're able to get back to it. (not that I'm one, I'm just a contemporary dance fan, and miss it a lot)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am Jeffrey Davison:

As someone who has worked in the food business since 1980, I know that many are underpaid, have no union representation, work hourly, and deal with crap that many people can't imagine. That being said, I can't imagine being a doctor or nurse or health care worker now.
If you have Netflix, and want to see an amazing show, watch Chef's Table. Each episode features one chef, and the story of how they got to where they are. Especially poignant now, as most of us can't eat in restaurants, and of course many restaurants are closed. It's a deep and emotional series, and a reminder of what we've lost, either temporarily or permanently, as many places won't make it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21am fred:

I'm afraid many music venues (whether small ones or bars/restaurants with a stage) won't make it either. Both will probably be scooped up by banks and chains for pennies, leading to even more homogenization.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26am Jeffrey Davison:

fred: you may be right, unfortunately. However, not all of these places can be converted to chain stores (not even close), and in a rational world, a bit of help would mean that these places could be kept alive (given what drinks cost in clubs, some would recover more quickly!). Some clubs may be able to weather a closure of a month or two, but longer than that? Seems iffy, to say the least. And afterwards, how will clubs reopen, and how many will venture out as they once did?

My sister is a nurse, and had fatigue last week but because no fever or cough, they won't test her.

i am not even sure that the line is in (my favorite) Hammet book - it might be attributable to john huston??

Good morning everyone. Nice quiet atmosphere JD. All the best to you all, figuring out how this world-predicament shakes out for each of us, in the coming months and years. We're going to see a lot of change. I'll remember when we met at this crossroads, and I'll carry good thoughts with me, down the road.

Interesting fact, I played this song exactly 5 years ago. Also, Tift was a guest on my show in 2013. One of my favorite sessions. Great songwriter and singer and a lovely person.

testingwithfire: sounds good!
StringOFperils: welcome, and thank you. Your kind words are appreciated.
Brian in UK, welcome...
  8:41am clarke:

i wonder that really having access to ALL of your collection is making for some re-discoveries, etc?? i recently got re-united with much of my cd's and wow. a lot i have been skipping over.

Love a bit of slightly alt but classic country like this. Thanks for the link Jeff. Will listen after.

Thanks as always, Jeffrey (and Ruth). Stay well, and stay human.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44am Jeffrey Davison:

TDK60, thank you.
Gavin, you're welcome, and I don't think I greeted you earlier. Good morning.
Fredericks: seems so...
12539, you're welcome.
Avatar 8:45am TDK60:

Fredericks: Yes. (I think it came from some wise-guy lefties in France, in the late '90s.)

Hi everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49am Jeffrey Davison:

clarke: yes, plenty of rediscoveries, but limited to CDs now. Have to see how I can play downloads (though I don't have many) and while some say that I can add tracks from the web, others say I need a second computer to do so. Still have to check.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50am Jeffrey Davison:

Good morning, melinda.
  8:50am Grilbert:

Anyone know where to find Precious Bloods music?
  8:51am clarke:

well, there are MANY shows that could come straight from your cd's!! don't rush into anything, ha ha. what i was getting at is that the shows are really great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am Jeffrey Davison:

Grilbert: tough to find. That CDr was pretty limited, and long out of print. None for sale on Discogs at present.
clarke: ha, thanks! Not rushing, no...
  8:53am clarke:

it must be a little 'freeing' to not have to play the merits rack, for a change???
  8:53am Grilbert:

Ahh Well great tune

Grilbert: Amy Annelle, one half of Precious Blood, has a bandcamp page:

Thanks for the music de folk again DJ JD, and shrinkers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55am Jeffrey Davison:

clarke: many weeks I play precious little from the WFMU "new bin", or even the library. My favorite part of the show was featuring stuff from bandcamp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56am fred:

Thanks Jeffrey
  8:56am testingwithfire:

I hate waking up late on Saturdays because then I miss most of Jeffrey's show! Hope everyone out there is ok and see y'all on the Accu very soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56am Jeffrey Davison:

Zoot: welcome, and thank you. Not sure about the flowers!
Andrew and fred, thank you.
