  Sat. 6/2/12 6:16am Brian in UK:

Already walked the dog, Jay. Feeling static today.
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:22am vanya:

  Sat. 6/2/12 6:28am Brian in UK:

My first motorbike came with a sidecar.
This is a memorial show in the making, Steve.
Oh Gene's voice.
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:30am Jay /London:

@ Brian i need to go to the shops but I am locked into the show
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:32am dale:

loving these sounds with my first cuppa in the morning! remember when the dillards were the 'darlings' on the andy griffith show?
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:35am Brian in UK:

Devilish ain't it Jay.
A lot of people hated Byrds the reunion album but I thought Gene's singing on See the Sky About to Rain and others was wonderful.
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:36am Jeremy (yup, also in the UK):

Loving the show, Steve. Don't understand why that NGDB triple LP isn't known by everyone (over here, at least)
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:39am vanya:

incredibly sweet sound! joe goldmark, huh...
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:39am Jay /London:

@ Brian it is indeed !
     Sat. 6/2/12 6:56am Steve Krinsky:

Hey, mornin' all. No time for comments from me-- too hectic-- but sure is nice knowing you are out there.
  Sat. 6/2/12 6:58am Mike:

Walking the dog listening to this wonderful music streaming on my droid
  Sat. 6/2/12 7:06am Chip:

Working so only catching pieces of the show, but what I'm hearing sounds great, especially for just coming out of mothballs
  Sat. 6/2/12 7:22am bob:

Great show steve!. Saw Geoff Muldaur couple of weeks back in Bkln. Same place i saw spider john a couple of years ago. there was probably 50 folks at most at either event. I could hardly believe my good luck, but i couldn't shake the feeling that it's a shame these guys aren't playing much, much bigger venues
     Sat. 6/2/12 7:26am Steve Krinsky:

BOB: I wish I had known about this; where did you see him?
  Sat. 6/2/12 7:36am bob:

I saw him at Jalopy in Red Hook…Irene Trudel was in attendance, too. Tony Glover is still alive for all I know, But eric is gone a few years now, sadly. Jalopy is a great joint, awesome filler music between sets…. tiny place, but big sound!
     Sat. 6/2/12 7:40am Steve Krinsky:

Yup. Tony Glover still cooking, Ric Von Schmidt died in 2007. I missed that.
  Sat. 6/2/12 7:49am bob:

Wow, this Francis Bebey tune is a real gem, thanks!
  Sat. 6/2/12 7:59am From Revere to reverie:

Steve Krinsky - I assume you said "Revere," when discussing stolen goods and Eric Von Schmidt records, but I missed the beginning of the sentence. I spent my first ten years – a sentence in itself some might say (though I wouldn’t) - in Revere, which both sides of my family called home, starting with my great-grandparents' generation. I was lucky enough to experience Revere Beach when it was still akin to Coney Island. One of my great uncles was the proprietor of the Revere Drive-In, which I now regard as my night school.
     Sat. 6/2/12 8:14am Steve Krinsky:

I lived in Revere until I went off to college (UMAss) in the 60s. Point of Pines, near the beach. Email me at stevek@wfmu.org and we'll talk about hanging out on Shirley Ave
  Sat. 6/2/12 8:31am abby:

i saw the klezmatics perform woodie guthrie at the maverick in woodstock: his mother-in-law was apparently a very famous yiddish singer in the old country; and he was always on her to do something with all the original sheet music she had sitting around the attic.
  Sat. 6/2/12 8:44am mike tp:

STEVE will have to catch up on the archives. you brought the goodie bag to the show.
  Sat. 6/2/12 8:49am Mike East:

Really been enjoying the sounds this morning.
     Sat. 6/2/12 8:55am Steve Krinsky:

I'm pretty much done. Hope you liked it. Check out more shows on the archives; email mail me if you want to stay in touch, find out when I am on next, share jokes, whatever: stevek@wfmu.org. Take care.
  Sat. 6/2/12 8:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning. Just caught the last minutes of your show. It sounded good.
  Tue. 6/5/12 3:52pm Lizardner Dave:

Listening on the archives. Great show. Thanks Steve.
