Hey, Holly! Eating some pecan pie, I hope.
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:22am Destroit:

Holly! Always nice to see you. Great soundtrack for a soul crushing baseball game I'll say.
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:36am Holly in NC:

Score's still tied, yes? I'm sorry we have to be on opposing sides tonight, Destroit.
@Joe - MUCH better. Head-on fresh NC shrimp, sauteed local dandelion greens, hot peppers, garlic, olives, capers, wine, butter AND olive oil oh yeah.
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 12:37am Joe McG:

Nice! Esp. the dandelion greens!
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:44am Holly in NC:

I'm a dandelion green freak, for real & truue

WoooHooo, Big records with little holes
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 12:50am Joe McG:

Hey, T-Zero! Yes, the universe is in reverse this evening.
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:51am T-Zero:

I wish I still had my dad's father's 78 collection... but it was all classical
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:51am Holly in NC:

Justin Tubb! Loved the classic Hank T. also
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:51am Destroit:

I think jeter just broke his ankle. That sucks, like that guy.
  Sun. 10/14/12 12:54am Holly in NC:

I gotta go see what's up, back later. Thx for being classy, Destroit, much appreciated!

Yee-haw! Hey, Matt!

Forget SINGLES Going Steady, this seems to be SEVENTY EIGHTS Going...uh, Surfacenoisy! :)
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 1:17am Joe McG:

@Matt: Yes, this is my most Surface Noisy show in some time. Must be torture to listen to on a computer, but it sounds pretty cool in the studio!
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:19am T-Zero:

I have to use headphones on the pc to keep my music hating neighbor from complaining, but the surface noise isn't bad.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:23am DJKG:

i keep hoping for patsy montana ...
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:23am Holly in NC:

yodel yodel yodel ;-)
T-Zero, neighbors still pesty? I'm sorry.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:25am T-Zero:

@Holly: Yeah, they complained to the landlord, who agreed I wasn't loud, but nonetheless I resorted to headphones 'cause I got fed up with her
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

Hank Williams, *founder* of the genre. Advanced it from "folk", "bluegrass" and "old timey" into what we can call "country".
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:28am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: It's cool however you listen to it! Glad that you're having fun playing them in any case! Even though you're sick, sober and sorry. Or maybe that's us?...
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:29am T-Zero:

@Holly: If I were spiteful person I'd complain about her, but I've just let it go... But she's noisier than any neighbor I've ever had above me here... Not tv/music loud, but bangs around a lot
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of yodeling, you wouldn't happen to have the DeZurik Sisters with you tonight, Joe? <hope> <hope> <hope>
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:31am Holly in NC:

Will Faron follow Johnny?
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:32am T-Zero:

@Holly: Me and the neighbor's on each side of me keep hoping when her lease expires she'll move as she bugs them too
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 1:33am Joe McG:

Everybody is making such good requests! Faron, Patsy...wish I could oblige. But all I got with me is what was in the crate.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:34am Holly in NC:

T-Zero - start cooking cabbage ALL DAY. And chitlins. Yes screw cabbage, chitlins. Stink her out!
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:34am Matt from Springfield:

Best of luck T-Zero, hope you don't get bothered by her much longer.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:35am T-Zero:

heh, I just made a big pot of cabbage and corned beef :D
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ/Holly: Or since she complains about "noise", play subsonic "infrasound" out of speakers pointed at the wall! Too low to be heard, but see if see "feels" it ;) (only use this as a last resort!)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrasound
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:38am Holly in NC:

:-)
Corned beef & cabbage, mmm
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 1:38am Joe McG:

Time to break out "Metal Machine Music"!
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:39am T-Zero:

@Holly: I love cabbage of any kind... when I was little I used to eat raw cabbage leaves with salt while I watched cartoons :D
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:40am T-Zero:

@Matt: Nah. I just try to ignore her...
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:42am Matt from Springfield:

Cabbage has been more of an acquired taste for me, but now I love it! Especially when slawed or krauted!
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:44am T-Zero:

Amish sauerkraut and sausage sandwiches
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 1:45am Joe McG:

We used to eat halupki when I was a kid: rice and meat wrapped in cabbage. And cabbage soup.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: It's fantastic! Slovenians call that Sarma! (Though many pronounce that as "Sodoma"!)
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:46am T-Zero:

@Joe McG: That sounds good. I like the cabbage and meat wrapped in this biscuit like dough too.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:49am T-Zero:

I don't know what it's called, but it's some kind of Russian/Ukraine/Slovakia regional dish
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

The much-covered "You Win Again"! Always a good'un.

And this one! I fear that none us will get out of this world alive..
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:52am Holly in NC:

@Joe - I make the best stuffed cabbage in the world. Really.
@T-Zero, I eat cabbage every day. Cool tip - long shreds = perfect vehicle for pasta sauces for those if us who don't eat pasta.
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 1:52am Joe McG:

Yes, exactly. Pretty delicious!
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:54am dan in falls church VA:

hi matt from springfiel, it's dan in falls etc.
  Sun. 10/14/12 1:58am Matt from Springfield:

Howdy and welcome, dan!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:01am DJKG:

it's your job to do the hackshaw tribute record, joe!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:01am Holly in NC:

@Matt, if you ever want a good kraut recipe, let me know. I am so hungry now, & I just ate, oh dear.
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:02am Matt from Springfield:

There's Joe again, the "Rob-ut Dance Party"! :)
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:03am Mike Sin:

Yeah! Driving back! Listening live!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

Mike Sin, glad you came along!
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:09am Joe McG:

@DJKG: I'll record it in the future! @Mike: How are you driving and writing this???
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Did you tell Meghan you would be doing a Western/Cowboy 78s show? She often plays this sort of music on UTP, this could be a good resource to find theme-appropriate songs!
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:11am Joe McG:

@Matt: No, Meghan had her hands full today. She produced a festival right here in Jersey City! You should ask her about it on Thursday.
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:12am Matt from Springfield:

I'll refer Meghan to this Archive, and ask about her festival!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

Ain't No Hole In The Galvanized Washing Tub.
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:14am T-Zero:

@Matt: Little Jimmy believes in good hygiene, within reason.
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:15am Joe McG:

BTW, everyone, the Great Mike Sin will be filling in for me on November 3/4. Circle your calendars!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:15am T-Zero:

between that and Liz Berg I'm sure my music wish list will double or tripple 0~O
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:17am Joe McG:

Don't miss Liz's show, it's going to be so good!
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

*reaches for red marker to circle calendar*
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:20am T-Zero:

Wow! That was depressing.
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:22am Joe McG:

Wouldn't be a country music show without some dead children.
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:22am T-Zero:

Surprised MADD's never used that as a theme song
Avatar    Sun. 10/14/12 2:24am Joe McG:

@T-Zero: :)!

More sorrowful death, country style.

  Sun. 10/14/12 2:56am T-Zero:

Fun show, Joe... well, road kill excepted... :D
  Sun. 10/14/12 2:56am Brian in UK:
