Listener comments!

  Fri. 2/17/12 12:06pm listener james from westwood:

that's one damn hip alaska station to have rerun these programs. counteracts some of the bleak mojo from that wasilla woman.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:08pm Doug Schulkind:

No doubt, LJFW! Steinksi had a pal who moved up to Ala and became the program director at some station up there. Stein sent him CDs burns of his show and the rest was history.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:08pm listener james from westwood:

li'l clip of tony randall from "everything you always wanted to know about sex" there. good one.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:10pm ndbob:

greetings Doug, James, everyone
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:12pm Doug Schulkind:

ndbob, great to read you!
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:12pm glenn:

maybe it was steinski that sent sarah over the edge. didja ever think about that, ljfw? huh? didja?
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Then Steinski is not only a badass, he is a patriot.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:18pm Doug Schulkind:

When I was just a little tike taking drum lessons, I studied from a Sam Ulano lesson book!
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:23pm ndbob:

wow Doug - my times of musical lessons were short and painful
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:25pm Doug Schulkind:

I believe Mr. Ulano was rather short, too.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:26pm dc pat:

I took drum lessons but figured everything else out on my own. Figured out guitar by watching Pete Townshend's fingers.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:29pm still b/p:

Elderly woman gave me piano lessons from standard books when I was eight...although a Beatles collection eventually was included! Hated to practice, but would sound out various one-finger tunes of the moment on my own -- the Green Beret song, Rat Patrol theme, etc.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:29pm glenn:

i think all musicians, no matter what they play, should take drum lessons.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:30pm dc pat:

totally agree glenn! don't know how many guitar players I played with that had no rhythm at all.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:31pm trsh:

I think I lucked out with a pile of music through public elementary school.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:31pm dc pat:

streaming Bryce at the same time. Sounds killer!
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:32pm Bryce:

Me too! (OK, this isn't Bryce.)
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:34pm Doug Schulkind:

My daughter has viola teacher who comes to the house weekly. I would have given my right arm to have had a music teacher like him. Maybe both arms.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:35pm listener james from westwood:

that would have made for some interesting bow technique.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:36pm dc pat:

that was Mozart's instrument, viola. his dad made him cut it out.

Discharge? Discharge!
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:38pm listener james from westwood:

that "ba-bumblebee" has "loop" written all over it.

Friday: typed a shitload today.
Saturday: typed a shitload today.

Too bad Rev. Shields didn't live into the age of Twitter (he died in 2007).
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Door jamb temperature? DOOR JAMB TEMPERATURE? That is fucking deep.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:43pm still b/p:

  Fri. 2/17/12 12:44pm listener james from westwood:

wonder if his stuff is archived anywhere.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:45pm listener james from westwood:

i know david isay's still kicking; he's one of the folks behind npr's storycorps. still inviting folks to share their lives.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:47pm Doug Schulkind:

I say Isay is a radio hero.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:47pm glenn:

i have probably hung five thousand doors in my life, and i guarantee you that the words door jamb temperature have never once passed my lips. not in that order, anyway.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Jesus, Glenn, 5,000 doors? That's a lotta doors.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:50pm glenn:

you bet. i started my apprenticeship at 19, i'm 51 now.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:51pm Doug Schulkind:

I put up a screen door last year. Where's my medal?
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:52pm Van in DC:

Huh. Made the end anyway.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:53pm glenn:

the average 3 bedroom house probably has 25 doors.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:54pm Doug Schulkind:

And the average 25-bedroom house has....

C'mon you math nuts!
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:56pm ndbob:

209? .. equal to the number of years it would take me to put up a door
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:56pm glenn:

by the way, if anybody has any carpentry / construction / renovation questions, i am more than happy to answer them.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:57pm glenn:

don't worry ndbob, it is way more difficult than people think.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 12:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Nice Glenn!
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:59pm dc pat:

I designed, built, and installed a screen door specifically so it would close with a loud thwack just like the one on my parent's garage when I was growing up. Shining moment of my life.
  Fri. 2/17/12 12:59pm dc pat:

Nurse With Wound + Laura Nyro and Labelle = ???
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 1:00pm Loud Thwack:

dc pat, I've missed you!
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:00pm still b/p:

Whenever I get tools in my hand there will be errors, cussing and blood.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:01pm dc pat:

measure twice, cut 12 times...
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:01pm glenn:

i built a cottage for a VERY wealthy woman some years ago. she wanted that same screen door thunk that she remembered from her childhood. it went beyond obsession, actually.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 1:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Errors, Cussing and Blood. Sounds like a Coen Brothers movie.

Errors, Cussing and Blood. Sounds like a Coen Brothers movie.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:03pm dc pat:

glenn: another example of how important sound is to us. a thwack to me is like the orange to Proust.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:03pm ndbob:

thanks for running this Doug!
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:03pm glenn:

the secret is, measure as little as possible. hold things where they are to go, and mark them to size.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 1:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Always my pleasure, ndbob. Thanks for hanging with it/me.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:05pm dc pat:

good advice there. I always have trouble making things square. mostly because things like the door frame aren't square in the first place.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:06pm trsh:

Great pair of shows.
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 1:06pm Doug Schulkind:

You can still email Steinski any time. He's a wunnerful feller.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:07pm glenn:

pythagorean theorum is your friend.
  Fri. 2/17/12 1:07pm listener james from westwood:

these shows are a national treasure. thanks, doug and steinski, wherever you are!
Avatar    Fri. 2/17/12 1:09pm Doug Schulkind:

My feelings EXACTLY, Listener James.
  Fri. 2/17/12 7:08pm Parq:

On the archives (as usual). More than a little surpirsed to see that no one during the broadcast answered Steinski's implicit question about Jack Sheldon. He was one of the key voices of Schoolhouse Rock, lead singer on "Conjunction Junction", "The Ballad of Mister Morton" and many more. Thanks for running this, Doug.
