A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Pip pip! to all

Yeah! Bob Welsh is a great wakeup!
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:28am Bad Ronald:

Man, I dig this Bob Welch tune!
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:28am jonathan thomas:

happy BD LL
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:29am seang:

strings, baby, it's all about the strings
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:31am Charcutero:

Ebony Eyes sounds like Charlie from LOST's song. "You are everybody" who's with me?
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:31am yayson:

with the power of trouble in the air all thursday mornings are bright
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:31am annie:

(happy birthday bessie smith!!)
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:37am Kurt:

Trouble, your show is great but your politics comments are right out of the left-wing nut job handbook
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:39am trts:

bahh, Kurt.

Way to generalize and pass sweeping judgment.

Foul ball
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:39am J-Mar:

Hooray for left-wing nut jobs!
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:40am Kurt:

It wasn't I generalizing or passing sweeping judgments.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:41am trts:

Oh perfect Kurt.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:42am jonathan thomas:

Trouble, your show is great luckily your political comments are left out of the right-wing nut job handbook
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:42am Kurt:

Glad to do my part to MUSH the chat board
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:43am Bad Ronald:

Let's stick to facts as opposed to opinions. "Ebony Eyes" is by Bob Welch not Welsh...
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:45am Cecile:

RuPaul is now my short-term personal saviour.

That is all.

I am wearing 4.5" platforms today to honor this.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:46am Adrian in London:

You do realise that while you squabble the UK is covered by a cloud of volcanic dust that has grounded all air traffic?! It's Iceland's revenge for us stopping their banks from operating under anti-terrorism legislation. We're all waiting for the sky to go dark right now…
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:46am jamesie:

  Thu. 4/15/10 9:47am seang:

Cecile, you are a diva! :)
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:49am Cecile:

a dowdy diva, but some kind of diva-like humanoid, nonetheless.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:49am Cecile:

Miley Cyrus did good voiceovers in Bolt.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:51am J-Mar:

I'm pretty sure that underneath all that makeup, RuPaul is probably kind of dowdy.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:51am NS Andy:

Look out... Irwin Chusid is going to pipe in at any moment...
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:52am LizGig:

Ah, precocious adolescents. We have some very talented 11-year old blues guitarists who write their own material. Including songs with lines like 'I want to get over my woman'. Well, I don't know about the rest of the audience, but I raised my eyebrows.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:52am north guinea hills:

Well, we all know Iceland still worships Surtr in hopes that the Ragnarök will occur. I wonder how much the UK economy will lose due to the ash and how much would have come out of the UK's coffers in order to bail out Iceland?
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:53am felipe:

great song!
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:54am jesse:

great tune love is adrum
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:54am Cecile:

he actually is quite elfin for someone who is 6'5". Striking for 50.
He appears as himself quite frequently on his show.
Very natty dresser - he likes the mod-cut suits.
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:54am Consuela:

  Thu. 4/15/10 9:56am seang:

any lefties out there, Houston has the best guitar shop--Southpaw Guitars--real nice dudes
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:57am J-Mar:

It's funny, you don't think of Houston as being a hotbed for left-wingers...
  Thu. 4/15/10 9:58am dc pat:

perfect Clash! Watch out Kurt,"left-wing nut job" lyrics coming up...

seang: yeah but are they pricey. I haven't been to a guit shop in years cuz I can't even afford to look at 'em.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:00am Sandy in Houston:

I like Houston. Good galleries & good music.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:02am dc pat:

ooooooohh, cut. off....
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:06am listener stu:

Hi Trouble were those Red Wing Blackbirds singing behind you ( or left wing black birds ?)
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:06am JcityJensen:

long live the nut jobs
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:06am felipe:

  Thu. 4/15/10 10:07am jaypee:

listener stu: HEYOOOOOO!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:07am Cecile:

I thought her video would have been more betterer without the exposition. It was a good song, though.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:08am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Laugh away. I'll join you!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:09am dc pat:

The political spectrum right now is hilarious. Tea-baggers are normal people and the President is a socialist. Give. me. a. break. If the pres is a socialist, than I must be so far out in left field you can't even see me any more.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:11am Cecile:

Do you have any Donny Hathaway, Trouble?
Or "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Rose Royce. Or anyone?
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:12am Ne-guh-tor:

A nutjob's a nutjob, no matter what the disposition, right? When I call a Repubnub insane I just say, "That fool is insane."
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:14am LizGig:

Thank you for Alice!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:15am Dead Corporate Eyes:

fly high above the nutjobs in your Lovely Sky Boat.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:16am Ne-guh-tor:

I got in a scathing debate with an "old" friend about teabaggers on Facebook recently. I shot a thousand holes in his moronic arguments and insults, then found out we are BOTH in the Independent party!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:17am Dead Corporate Eyes:

debates really don't work well for Facebook. You need to sit down over coffee or some other liquid.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:17am wendy del formaggio:

Hot damn, Trouble! Curtis Mayfield got me dancin' in the shower, and now Alice Coltrane is helping me get dressed. Whadda segueway! You da best.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:19am north guinea hills:

  Thu. 4/15/10 10:21am dc pat:

tea baggers = nut jobs. But people who consider themselves traditional conservatives (small government, fiscal responsibility, etc), though I don't agree with them mostly, are not nut jobs. Problem is there are very few trad conservatives in the Republicreep party.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:21am Ne-guh-tor:

Dead Corporate Eyes: I like debating on FB sometimes cause the asshole over there can't beat me up. Many of my "old" friends are brawlers ;) Any debate about the philosophy of teabaggers doesn't work for me cause they just don't want to pay taxes to a Democratic administration. Where were they during the heinous Bush years?
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:22am annie:

i apply the star-bellied sneeches theory to this whole political madness we have been experiencing.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:26am ffrr:

I thought Victoria Jackson was just acting.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:35am Link Larkin:

Tracy, our skin may be white, but our souls are black,
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:35am Cecile:

I love this! This is great.

I have to watch Hairspray at least twice a year.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:39am v k:

Loretta Lynn - her 75th birthday yesterday - perhaps some LL would be prudent
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:39am Charcutero:

This Bessie Smith track is sexy
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:42am v k:

oops - sorry - was away from desk then - even did "control F" for Loretta (but didn't see it) - i messed up - head down

can you please play the pill by loretta lynn?
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:43am Ne-guh-tor:

Three way tie!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:43am BSI:

ah, they're right.
but I totally preferred Lidsville.

the movie was the best! got to see the copter and boat and cycle w/ sidecar that the show didn't. how will dj icepack learn about victor buono or frank gorshin or otto preminger or burgess meredith or....
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:44am Cecile:

I've waiting for Bakersfield, PD to come out on DVD.

I liked the Bugaloos - I would draw them all the time.

No, that wasn't me.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:44am monika:

YES! i was looking for the batman tv show to copy julie newmar's costume, and i was so depressed that i couldn't find it anywhere online. it's an absolute travesty, i was really looking forward to reliving the magic of adam west :/
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:45am Cecile:

Or Eartha Kitt
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:46am Adrian in London:

Cecile!!! I've got Bakersfield on DVD. I got it off eBay. It's obviously a dodgy copy but it's as good as you remember it.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:47am Cecile:

Excellent, I will have to chase it down.
I had it DVR'd from when Trio ran it years ago, but it....got...erased.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:52am instant conductors:

hey trouble! can you spell that french blog title out again? sounds of supreme interest.
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:54am trouble:

sure: fillessourires.com
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:57am guuzbourg:

hi trouble, thanks for mentioning the new url of www.fillessourires.com, much appreciated! plein de bisous!
  Thu. 4/15/10 10:58am instant conductors:

yes, much thanks!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:01am seang:

jac berrocal seems like an interesting dude
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:12am Adrian in London:

On a Mac ø is alt+o, if that helps
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:13am danoamtika:

If you have a mac, you can type an ø with option+o.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:13am Carmichael:

Hi Everyone. Trouble, thanks for playing the Clash (even though I missed it)! That's one of my favorite songs of theirs.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:21am trouble:

thanks for the o help everybody. i have a mac at home but we are strictly pcccc here, merci.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:24am BSI:

this live piece is the niceness...
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:27am ffrr:

To get Ø on a pc hold ALT+0216 (lower case 0248)
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:30am Carmichael:

On my PC, your directions make: â

  Thu. 4/15/10 11:33am ffrr:

Sorry Carm, works on mine
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:37am Adrian in London:

Hey Trouble, I'm going to email you something that combines poetry and birds. Keep an eye out for it.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:37am seang:

Planet Rock!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:37am Cecile:

I love how open-minded and big-hearted this rap is. Reminds me of how songs used to mix together in the early 80s...
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:38am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:38am trouble:

sounds great adrian!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:39am v k:

  Thu. 4/15/10 11:39am Cecile:

someone should play this song to MIchelle Duggar. Just sayin.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:39am Jennique:

Thank you for playing the World's Famous Supreme Team! I think it's ironic that last week you played Malcolm the day before he died (you played Je T'aime Moi Non Plus ) Keep the hits coming!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:40am Pip:

I've got the pill too- it's awesome
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:40am dc pat:

Oh no, don't tell me Loretta Lynn is a left wing nut bag...
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:41am Cecile:

Far from it DCP...
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:44am Cecile:

anti-microbial/bacterial soaps are unnecessary if you do not need to maintain a sterile field in your everyday life And they are a public health hazard - they help breed supergerms.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:44am Sean Daily:

Yes, if the Europeans do it, it must be good!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:45am Sean Daily:

And thank you for that, Cecile. My next point exactly.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:46am Ψ-Ns:

Triclosan is even in toothpaste! Besides what it can do to hurt us directly, bacteria can become immune to its effects, leading to "superbugs" that withstand this and other bacteriacides.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:49am Parq:

Well said, guys. Anti-bacterial soap is just another example of how our entire economy is based on selling things no one actually needs.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:50am Cecile:

Exactly. Soap and warm water take care of 99% of what you need.

I pretty much never allowed it in my house - I knew enough about not taking too many antibiotics to know that anti-bacterial soap is the same thing. I want my Zithromax to still work when I need it!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:51am Sean Daily:

But but but the GERMS! I need to protect myself from... the GERMS!
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:52am Cecile:

Just don't listen to their music. ;P
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:53am Parq:

Exactly, Sean. Just like you need special shoes to walk at the mall (younger listeners, this was a real product in the 80s), special cleaning fluid just for formica bathroom countertops, etc. etc.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:56am Adrian in London:

If you want to be scared about anti-bacterials listen to Benjamen Walker's TMI from this week. I'm now terrified of my socks. You should listen to it anyway, it's a great show.
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:57am Carmichael:

I need a SlapChop. Vince, are you listening?
  Thu. 4/15/10 11:59am Cecile:

linguini, martini, bikini
  Thu. 4/15/10 12:00pm Sean Daily:

Bottom line: we're all gonna die, SOMETHING'S gonna kill ya, save your money and enjoy your banana split.
