Options Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt: Playlist from January 19, 2012 Options

Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

Hi Davice

Although I may not comment every Thursday I love your show!
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:02pm G:

Silver Quintette always means the weekend is about to start, if we can count Friday as honorary weekend. Righteous!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:03pm sinner:

Anyone can post now....you no longer have to do the algebra equation to post

G; Man, are you right...
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:04pm Davice:

I picked up this track on CD and it is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:05pm sinner:

I picked up a slew of gospel 45s in Birmingham on Sunday. Most of the show's from this stash, especially the scratchy ones!
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:06pm Davice:

Kevin, Requests are a pain in the )( I know but do you think you might sqeeze in some Blind Boys from Alabama?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:09pm sinner:

Requests are NOT a pain....I can't get any ABB on tonight, though. Anything in mind?
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:11pm Davice:

Lve the BB of A, saw them live, out of this world. Just thought if you had some of their music. If not, that's ok, you play all good stuff.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:12pm Davice:

God said it and that's good enough for me!
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:13pm G:

I was always assuming, from back in the days prior to comments on this show, that Kevin pretaped his weekly hour and forwarded it to the station from his perch in Alabamm, like Vicki and Nardwuar and others who are not in NY/NJ and do hour-long early-evening music shows.

If so, that would make during-show requests kind of tricky. :-)
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:14pm Davice:

But he could get the request on next week!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:14pm sinner:

Thank you G! But I WILL play some Blind Boys next week. Davice, you can count on that.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:15pm G:

Sounds good. :-)
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:16pm Davice:

The little guy who could hold a note forever died a little while ago.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:21pm Davice:

Kevin - Most of the stuff you play happened b4 I was born . . . and it is good stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:23pm sinner:

yeah....history is a funny thing.......
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:23pm G:

Could that be THE Staple Singers? or are Staples Singers different?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:25pm sinner:

It's actually, always The Staples Singers. But everyone always drops the "s". Like in tennis shoes. People say tenna shoes.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:27pm G:

Never knew that. I knew them starting from their big pop breakthrough period, I'll Take You There etc., 1972 if memory serves. But I'd read they had roots far back in time.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:29pm Davice:

I was a young kid in 72
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:29pm Davice:

didn't even know this music existed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:30pm sinner:

Staples first record came out in 1953. They released about 40 sides during the 1950s. All killer.
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:35pm mark in vt:

So good
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:36pm Davice in NJ:

NJ has the best moosic
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:37pm G:

I was 13-14 years old in 72, but old enough to be listening to the radio and buying 45s... I lived in the UK then, and you had to special-order the American music that wasn't on the UK charts (which meant most of it, in those days).

The record store people told me that for months they thought I was a precociously young DJ for special-ordering every week all that American soul music that wasn't on the charts or radio over there. I got US charts out of the weekly music press in the UK, and ordered from those LOL

I shot my oil through my vessel oh lord.. Forgive me!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:39pm sinner:

Yes, yes. We have another WFMU testimonial from Brother G..
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:39pm Davice in NJ:

Well hello G, I'm a 1960 child myself so I know what your talking about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:39pm sinner:

Mark--There's a deacon here who needs to talk with you...you need to behave....
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:41pm Davice in NJ:

Oh reverend, please help me!
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:42pm Davice in NJ:

Did Led Zeppelin do this song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:44pm sinner:

The backing is the same as Dylan's From a Buick Six
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:45pm mark in vt:

Scratch the 45 inch until it gives
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:48pm Davice:

Kevin - All I have to say is that your show brightens up my week. Keep up the good work I really appreciate it. Thanks Dave
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/19/12 8:50pm sinner:

Bless you, Davice...take all you need....
  Thu. 1/19/12 8:51pm mark in vt:

Kevin totally tops it. Thanks.

Greetings Brother Nutt!
Thanks for the Staple Singers this week! My absolute favorite group of all time! :) (before the "I'll Take You There" years). If I remember correctly, they decided along with one of their record labels to drop the "s" in "Staples", but I may be wrong.
If you are taking requests, how about the Leach Brothers Quartet please?!? I know you have played at least one song by them, but would love to hear more!
Sinner's Crossroads is definitely one of the bright spots in my week that I look forward to!
To tide people over through the week between SC broadcasts, I don't know if you want to give a link to a fantastic blog I've discovered with more wonderful old classic gospel than you can shake a Sinner's Crossroads fan at (and other genres, as well), check out:
Check out the comments on this post :) :

I usually catch this show on the archives (praise the Lord for archives) and it always makes me smile. Keep testifying sinner.
  Tue. 1/24/12 9:22pm Jillem:

Dear Kevin,
Where ever we are and whatever we do there is always time for listening to the greatest radioshow on earth: "Sinners Crossroads!'' I love that vintage gospel. The most beautiful music ever made and The Silver Quintette will be forever stored in my box of memories!
Greetings from AGC aka rRr and nowadays after the great mediafire cleansing Jillem
