Matt! Bluesies!
Avatar 7:02pm khd:

woo blues
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Handy Haversack:

Matt! Worldly Weekers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm ultradamno:

Water main burst nearby yesterday, had no water overnight, it's now back at low pressure and we're under a boil order until tomorrow. Those are my current blues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm zito:

this episode sponsored in part by richie's slush
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Handy Haversack:

ultradamno, the story of the song that got the station taken off the air is not in the trading cards, we have decided.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm ultradamno:

Dang it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Little Danny:

Hiya Matt, peeps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm PaulRobeson1920:

Greetings! This music goes great with these powerful lightning showers over Queens rn!
Avatar 7:05pm Marc Francis:

I saw that Road House is on Netflix (Canada). I just put it on muted as the background to your show tonight. Should be perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Handy Haversack:

But my is THIS song topical!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Matt Fiveash:

MF- Hopefully there'll be at least one Wizard of Oz/Dark Side of the Moon moment. Good luck!
Avatar 7:07pm khd:

i think that would work better with Crossroads, featuring Ralph Macchio
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Matt Fiveash:

Also, apologies in advance for forgetting to back announce this opening John Fahey number. Live on tape!
  7:09pm Lothianman:

Takoma park's own!!! Yeah thanks Matt!
Avatar 7:10pm Marc Francis:

@khd: Steve Vai is the devil who taught black people the blues but was beaten by the Karate Kid. Am I remembering Crossroads right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Matt Fiveash:

That's right, they had a duel for heavy metal blues guitar supremacy
Avatar 7:11pm khd:

it's probably been 30 years since i've seen it but i think that's right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm ultradamno:

Kind of like the famous Frank Marino vs. Ted Nugent guitar duel? www.mahoganyrush.com...
  7:13pm Lothianman:

How come he wasn't Mississippi Fred st this point?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Matt Fiveash:

He was.
Avatar 7:15pm deborah:

My cat is hiding under the bed, fearful of this wicked thunder. Music fits this moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Matt Fiveash:

I just didn't feel like spelling Mississippi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Handy Haversack:

Funny, Matt, we were just discussing John Fahey!
Avatar 7:16pm khd:

em eye ess ess eye ess ess eye pee pee eye
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm ultradamno:

Type it all and let spell check sort it out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Handy Haversack:

Matt, do you get back on the playlist for the RnS stream rebroadcast?
Avatar 7:18pm Marc Francis:

@ultradamno: I never heard about that. I've always hated Ted Nugent. He always came across corny AF.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Matt Fiveash:

HH- probably not. Gotta work.
  7:18pm Stinky:

I'm glad you cleared that up, I was thinking it might have been Yonkers Fred Mcdowell.
Avatar 7:19pm Hackensack Slim:

Pat Hare, the greatest homicidal bluesman of all time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Matt Fiveash:

Coming up: Scarsdale John Hurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Little Danny:

Those were some gorgeous blown amp tones
  7:20pm Stinky:

Double Live Gonzo has some moments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Matt Fiveash:

controversial!
  7:21pm Stinky:

But, yeah, TN is a clown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm ultradamno:

@Marc The last Scored To Death podcast interviews him about working with Bill Conti, it's absolutely insufferable. He's always been a babbling self-aggrandizing narcissist but now it's extra-delusional.
Avatar 7:21pm Iliketolisten:

YIKESOROONY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Handy Haversack:

Makes sense, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Matt Fiveash:

I like Journey to the Center of yr Mind but yeah fuck him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Little Danny:

One of the great one-note guitar "solos"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm ultradamno:

He does, in the interview, give some credit to black guitarists as precedent, but it doesn't make up for some of the racist stuff he's said as a radio buffoon.
  7:24pm Stinky:

According to a friend, he tried pulling the same stunt he did with Frank Marino on Angus and has his tukkis handed to him. Again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Matt Fiveash:

Coming at Angus with that bullshit. What a douche
  7:26pm Stinky:

He's a chump.
Avatar 7:26pm Sketch:

Big tune
Avatar 7:27pm Marc Francis:

@Fiveash: Ken Boothe sounds so much better than whatever cover I imagine Jeff Healey is currently playing at the Double Deuce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Matt Fiveash:

Hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm zito:

is too late to pile on the nuge? no? fuck him and kid rock
  7:30pm Stinky:

Never too late!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Matt Fiveash:

Zito: one of the very few things we agree on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Handy Haversack:

Poor Michigan. It never asked to be represented by so much douchebaggery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm zito:

you want garlic knots? i got garlic knots
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Matt Fiveash:

so yer down from ziti to just one zito now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm ultradamno:

Well, they'll always have this (aside from Iggy, SRC, etc) i.pinimg.com...
  7:34pm JW:

Jeff Healey was really a jazz guy. I saw him once with his big band a couple years before he died. Amazing. He also had a big band radio show on CBC in Canada for years. He had thousands and thousands of records.
Avatar 7:34pm deborah:

Loving this music!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm zito:

looking out for #1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Matt Fiveash:

Speaking of Detroit, that gargantuan Fortune Records Book is finally available for pre-order from Norton Records, coming out I think in September. Looks epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Handy Haversack:

Very true, ultradamno! Let's get them all a talk-radio show!
  7:36pm johnk77:

bill kirchen still 1 of

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Chop Scott:

Cheers Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Little Danny:

Did not know there was a Fortune tome in the works
  7:38pm johnk77:

Avatar 7:39pm slugluv1313:

greetings, Matt, Skeletons, everyone!
LOVING all this RAIN!
CRAZY flooding on my street :)
@ deborah -- hope your cat is ok by now! the cats here are like, "who cares? we want our DINNER!"
  7:40pm Stinky:

Thanks for the Sleepy John Estes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Matt Fiveash:

LD, yeah, by the late Billy Miller and Michael Hurtt. Billy showed me some proofs not long before he passed. What a story, that label!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Matt Fiveash:

Stinky, you bet yer ass
  7:42pm Christopher Lynardakis:

Hi Matt! Enjoying the show! Particularly this one! Peace
Avatar 7:44pm nematomorpha:

Hi from Vienna. thx the tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm ultradamno:

But not Congo, he only has the one d, but it get the job done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Handy Haversack:

I already answered the musical question "me and my gin" and have moved on to the musical question "me and my rye."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm ultradamno:

Better than me and my djinn, that never works out well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Handy Haversack:

I wish I had a million gins!
Avatar 7:49pm Marc Francis:

HAHAHAHAHAAAAA. Swayze doing Tai chi to this song is GOLD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Handy Haversack:

Hell yeah, Swamp Dogg.

Thanks for the show, Matt; have a good week -- and thanks, Skeleton Scott.

Be well, all!
