Matt Fiveash:

Good evening all. Thank you for listening. I'd like to ask that if you are the type of playlist commentator who hyper-posts here, and has a hot take or quip or tossed-off opinion about everything, that just for this week you take it down a notch. If you have something to say, that's fine, but take a little extra care in choosing your words. I really don't want this to turn into a youtube comments section tonight, and I'll have more of a hair trigger comment deleting finger than usual if people get stupid. Thanks in advance for your understanding. Yours etc, Management, WWB LLC

Well said, Matt!

Little Danny:

Nicely said Matt. You parsed out some very subtle threads of thought (and emotion) that are inseparable from the experience of talking about, thinking about, playing, and enjoying any type of music, especially if it has roots in black culture.

Little Danny:

Also this Eddie Taylor is great and totally new to me

"Dark Road," hell yes

So that was a couple of years before I Asked For Water by Wolf, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm
Matt Fiveash:

I guess?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm
Matt Fiveash:

same era , roughly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm
ultradamno:

I don't know how on point what I've looked up is but I got 52 for Dark Road and 56 on Water. It's just such a distinctive style of song that got me curious.

Ira is midnight to 3 on Tuesdays, Nate is still 9-midnight. That might be my first non-stupid comment on this page so hopefully it doesn't get deleted.

sorry matt for my responsive text to someones chat not seeing it was removed

Little Danny:

Ultradamno, I think those dates are right. I love the sound of that strain of blues, too. Very much the minor-key "haunted" Delta blues sound updated with electric guitars and amps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm
Matt Fiveash:

I thought I banned you already Todd! You must've used a different IP address... foiled again

Well said. Thank you for doing what you do.

Matt Fiveash:

Todd: Just contacted Nate and Ira to tell them they have to switch slots now, since it's already been announced on air and this show is pre-recorded so there's no way to correct it now.

Scott Williams:

Excellent, thoughtful and beautifully articulated show, just like the fella hosting it - thanks Matt! And thanks for the Whensday welcome! Gotta put my big boy pants on now.

Welcome aboard Scott, and thanks for the splice!
