this "Idau Kara" song for some reason reminds me of The Deighton Family -- ??!!??
  Sat. 1/19/08 6:48pm Zach in Philly:

"Idau Kara" was a powerful track, yo! Now ya got me curious about the The Deighton Family ...

Sorry, can't go there with you, I'm a socialist...
  Sat. 1/19/08 7:40pm Willard Scotts Bassline:

great show.
  Sat. 1/19/08 7:49pm Rob W:

Music - transcends politics! Corny but true...
  Sat. 1/19/08 7:50pm slugluv1313:

i have read that Ron Paul would abolish the Department of Education -- ??!!??

do not know how valid that claim is, and while i am sure that the Dept. of Ed. is massively screwed up, there is sooooo much "aggressive stupidity" in this country (you know, the kind of "mentality" that makes huge hits out of songs that boast "I don't know the difference between Iran and Iraq") . . . the mere thought of doing away with ANYTHING educationally-oriented TOTALLY scares the Hell out of me!

by the way: DENNIS KUCINICH 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sat. 1/19/08 7:52pm slugluv1313:

yes, THANKFULLY true!!!!!

(about music-transcending-politics)

re: Deighton Family -- i found their CD that i have, "Rolling Home" (maybe i was recalling their version of "I can See Clearly Now"?)

anyway, here is a link:

Hi all,

Happy Mardi Gras (I'm watching it on the net.)

The Deighton family was popular on WFUV back in the 80s or 90s. Didn't hear the track, just came in now.

Hi Zach!
  Sat. 1/19/08 8:57pm lipwak:

Jeez, I thought that La Carrau sounded a little cajun but thought to myself, no, that's just me imposing that on a genre that probably has nothing to do with it.
  Sat. 1/19/08 8:57pm alan thomson:

check out the La Carrau: Virolet Zydeco video on youtube!
  Sat. 1/19/08 9:00pm lipwak:

Thanks alan
