Avatar 7:16pm Marc Francis:

Damn! That was Mamie Minch? I saw her at Picasso Machinery about a decade ago. Still amazing!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Handy Haversack:

I'm in, Matt! My only regret is that there isn't a CD for taking in our 2003 car ...

Hey, Dungaroos K!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm swivs:

Hey everybody. Was playing along and felt it worth mentioning, the first 4 songs were all in A, and the fifth song A#. By my math, there's 13 songs to go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Matt Fiveash:

swivs- All part of my sinister plan!
  7:18pm Edward:

Man, it would be great to have a name like Barbecue Bob. Because whenever anyone heard your name, they would associate with the taste of delicious barbecue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm swivs:

I KNEW IT
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Handy Haversack:

swivs, did the dogs get to you? Are you typing with PAWS? Show me your opposable thumb if you can hear me!

  7:22pm bigplanetnoise:

Matt! Sounding great. Thx for the Bird!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm McGroovey:

Oh, now I want to listen to Charlie Parker all night long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Matt Fiveash:

BPN! Bird's the word, always.
McGroovey- I think they are still playing him nonstop on WKCR until Sept 6- turn this shit off right away and get over there!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm zito bandito:

one more monkey song and spazz sends over the happiness boys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm McGroovey:

Not until after WWB!

Or maybe I can listen to both at once.
  7:25pm bigplanetnoise:

Million dollar tone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Matt Fiveash:

BPN- yeah! Ollie Crawford.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Handy Haversack:

Glad to hear it, swivs. My regards to the Mitten. Super sad that we didn't make it out there this year. First time for me since I was a kid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm McGroovey:

Actually, that should be "The WWB"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Matt Fiveash:

swivs if you can get enough dogs and typewriters going at once there's no telling what might result!
  7:31pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

The Croatian side of my family brought us to “Tamburitzas” performance every couple of years—where I met most of the members of my extended family. Being a stupid, myopic kid, it seemed like a huge imposition & very uncool, even if the dancing and physicality was, in spite of my dullard teen tendencies, pretty incredible. If I’d only known Louis Jordan recognized and celebrated it back then—I might have gone in w a better mind set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Matt Fiveash:

DK- Stupid, myopic youth is wasted on the stupid, myopic young.
  7:33pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

@Matt. Indeed. I blame society
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm ultradamno:

Speaking of more contemporary stuff Have you ever played Lady A? I don't think I've ever heard her, but while she's still called that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Matt Fiveash:

Who's this Lady A?
Wait is that the band who had to change their stupid Gone With The Wind band name? I am cornfused
  7:38pm Joel Lee Kulp:

bravo on a great shaap-style shoutout ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Matt Fiveash:

JLK- I thought I told you to leave me alone when I ran into you on the street today! Don't make me come over there
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Handy Haversack:

BTW, Matt, efd revealed the AC/DC cover band this week. Hoping he has a track to play later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Chop Scott:

Cheers Matt and all!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:40pm ultradamno:

Changed it to an existing blues singers name, and to show they're woke demanded a black lady change her name for them... www.foxnews.com...
  7:41pm Joel Lee Kulp:

I'll stalk you now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Matt Fiveash:

Ah shit I forgot you know where I live!
  7:43pm Edward:

I just today Read John Fahey's chapter on Skip James in his book HOW BLUEGRASS MUSIC DESTROYED MY LIFE. Really amazing shit, if you can get your hands on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Matt Fiveash:

ultradamno- Oh right! I remember reading about that. I should probably play the real Lady A just on principle even if I don't like her music, which I probably won't because I hardly ever like anything new
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Handy Haversack:

Mary Wing played Nick Cave's "Crow Jane" today. Something in the air. CORVID?
  7:46pm Mom:

More, more!!

Yankee Stadium, Atlantic Records, and WFMU ca. 2020: Three houses that Ruth built.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Handy Haversack:

This song has Kate saying "Oh, girl."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Matt Fiveash:

Gaylord: Got damn right!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Handy Haversack:

Well, poop. That went fast. Matt, thanks so much!

Dungaroos K, hope you're hanging in, friend.

Be well, all. See you in the Honky Tonk.
  7:55pm Edward:

Matt, this song reminds me a lot of Ray Agee, an LA singer from the 40s and 50s whose songs aren't about anything but nihilism and despair and blood and guts left on the floor. I don't think you've ever played anything by him. "Tin Pan Alley" was covered by Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Matt Fiveash:

Edward- I know I've played Ray Agee before but maybe not on WWB.
  7:57pm Nesta:

A user from Namibia says the name Genial means "Friendly, kind and cheerful.". A submission from Malaysia says the name Genial means "Happiness of God - internet

hawaii seems chill

Really great! Thx Matt!

Fight nazis always. Thanks Matt, skeletons, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm McGroovey:

OK. Now I can listen to that other station. Oh, wait, now's Honky Tonk Radio girl. Oh ****.
