Opening reminds me of that startling Billie Holilday interview Doug S once broadcast
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:12pm still b/p:

I seem to remember a "guru" thing we'd do....pulling into half-assed lotus position and giving a peace sign while jumpin' up and in. I'll go with that.

Paul, that sad piece with a nearly comatose Billie barely slurring separate syllables? That interview?

Up next is maybe the MOST avant-garde selection a WFMU DJ can make (for WFMU). Any guesses?
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:26pm Carmichael:

A hippie boogie band channeling Howlin' Wolf, with a flatpicking solo.
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:26pm Paul Sherratt:

Doug, that's the one.

I see there's a pool party in progress! I just ate so will have to wait a half hour before joining. I'll just sit here under the umbrella and apply sun block liberally.

Greatful Dead wins by a nose over Mel Tormé.

i remember seeing this pryor album in the music store in town as a kid and thinking, "they can't put *that* on an album cover, can they?!" thanks to richard pryor, they can.
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:39pm Carmichael:

Doug, where is Steinski these days?

i have heard that austrian humor is a rare bird and difficult for non-austrians to appreciate.

'Veep' Is it any good ? ( The Thick Of It one my all-time favoourite ways to watch a tv set )
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:48pm kat330:

@Paul: No cable here so haven't seen it. But Louis-Dreyfus is no doubt worth the watch.
  Fri. 5/25/12 12:50pm listener james from westwood:

I've heard good things about it and nothing sharply or specifically bad. Ditto what kat sez re: JLD. She is a treasure.

I used to use an afro pick with a black power fist. And the afro to go with it.

We left our TV in Brooklyn when we moved to Pittsburgh. I don't miss it.
