Just curious Doug - have you ever had a live performance by someone on GTDS? I mean, isn't the Love Room thereabouts somewheres? I guess wrong studio though...
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 9:18am Doug Schulkind:

Not since I moved to Pittsburgh, Van. I didn't have a ton of live music on the show (not easy to get musicians awake for a 9am show!) but I had some over the years when I was still in NY/NJ.
  Fri. 1/11/13 9:20am Uncle Michael:

You should do a "best of" of every year you have a recording. That could take awhile too.

Was there a Swedish connection to Uppsala College? Uppsala University is a major university in Sweden, located in a small town not too far from Stockholm. It's the oldest Nordic university, founded in 1477. I've not been there, but I've been to "the other place", Lund in the South. These two are the Oxbridges of Sweden.

Brian,
As you rightly state, Penkhull is Indian ( but Trent Vale ain't ) Perhaps a prize of a dozen oatcakes should be give to the first cousin to guess what on earth we are on about ! Or perhaps a copy of soon-to-be published ' The Breakfast Bible '

Can't believe they haven't done anything w/ the old Upsala land.
  Fri. 1/11/13 9:58am Brian in UK:

Those oatcakes do not give a inch.

Guess we will be visiting them sometime in the foreseeable. Hope to see Fred Eaglesmith soon. He has written several of Mary Gauthier's hits!!

fred puts on a great show. i've seen him probably 10 times.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:07am Paul Sherratt:

Brian, as you must have been aware, Fred Eaglesmith's cd ' From The Paradise Motel' is also on the desk. Don't think he's made a Drummer Some appearance but I've a lot of time for his ' Things Is Changin ' album, if less so for the man himself .. Do you have that one ?
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:09am Van in DC:

Irene it was that hipped me to Meg.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:12am Paul Sherratt:

I discovered Meg Baird and her gorgeous ' Dear Companion ' in 2007 thanks to a then BBC DJ's reject pile
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 10:13am Doug Schulkind:

Apologies if I am somewhat less chatty than usual. I am having to re-aclimate myself to this unfamiliar studio on the fly, all the while yakking with old FMU colleagues who keep popping in.

oh man, there are some good tunes on that JBs Lost Album! even the cheese is fun. This version of transmo.. is longer than the released one I think. And the version of Use Me was so rare that I'm glad it showed up on this. They should've put this out as a double vinyl.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:22am kat330:

Hi, Doug in the belly of the beast! [just popping in for a sec here -- will be back properly after 11:00]

@Paul: Fred Eaglesmith's "Pontiac" from "Lipstick, Lies & Gasoline" is a real favorite of mine. Didn't hurt I owned an old beater Pontiac at the time it came out.

Who is talk-radio host Alex Jones? I was reading Slate earlier today about his appearance on the Piers Morgan show on CNN. The guy was hysterical!

  Fri. 1/11/13 10:27am Üncle Michael:

He's filling the Glenn Beck void, these days.

Yusef Lateef!! My parents neighbor! He maintains a strong presence around Western Mass
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 10:28am Doug Schulkind:

Hugo, Jones is a nobody. He does a cable-access show based in Austin, Texas. CNN gave him a bigger platform that he's ever had.

Andujar, Yusef is my all-time musical hero, rabbi and guru.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:28am glenn:

alex jones is not even worth thinking about.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:28am Paul Sherratt:

Not sure I have that album - it could be in the loft ! But another cracking track is ' I like Trains ' off 'Drive-in Movies' I have never owned a train, btw.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:29am andujar:

Nothing like seeing Yusef in his apron taking out the garbage.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:29am Lewis:

Just popping in to say "Hi" - Doug: I hope your excursion to the mother ship / easy coast is more pleasant than the train ride that brought you there!

Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 10:31am Doug Schulkind:

Andujar, I hope I am still taking out the garbage when I am 92.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:33am Lewis:

@Doug = glad you had a nice ride; as an geology student of the appalachians in the old days, that transect from Pittsburgh to New Jersey is an absolute classic! and the train *can* be quite peaceful.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 10:35am Doug Schulkind:

Lewis, I made sure to stay awake for the Horseshoe Curve at Altoona, where the train does a complete 180.
  Fri. 1/11/13 10:37am Hugo:

The reason Jones was on CNN seems to be that he wants to have Piers Morgan deported!

@Paul: Background from the Murdoch tabloids?

Would mid-Atlantic be a solution?

Good thing that outage was just a mistake!

The only "bad" thing about you being back at the Mothership at this time Doug is that you have access to all the music library...hopefully you are loading up for future shows :)

Yes watch it. I haven't seen it but it should be known that our Elton ( Reg Dwight ) is a Billy Stewart fan, so ...

i have this Baobab on 45. Awesome JB-inspired funk from one of Africa's greatest bands.

I remember the day Curtis was hurt. He was getting set to perform at Boys High in Brooklyn when a light tower fell on him. R in sweet P, Curtis.

Speaking of sweet: Carmichael!

Hi Carm! I listen to Friday (and other days of the week) all the time.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:20am Üncle Michael:

I'm off work on Fridays and therefore, it's the busiest day of my week. As a result, I find that I've completely reconfigured my list of productive endeavors, so that I can still accomplish my goals *and* listen to GTDS.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:22am Van in DC:

Today's show has put me in the mood for pizza. Oh wait. I'm frequently in the mood for pizza.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:22am joe:

'ello folks
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:22am joe:

That's ok Doug go ahead fix your chair we'll wait :)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:23am listener james from westwood:

good gods, doug, don't lose a finger to that chair, you've suffered enough this year!
üncle michael, your priorities are admirable.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:23am kat330:

OK -- I'm back for the duration.
@Paul: "Trains," eh? Apparently Mr. Eaglesmith is best with modes of transportation.
@ndbob: Hi, there, Robert (it IS Robert, yes?)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:24am kat330:

@Doug: Oh, no -- that cannot be good for your back!
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:28am Matt from Springfield:

We should have a 100,000th track celebration for the stream!

'Ello joe, and 'ello kat!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:28am joe:

Doug are you up to vist the mini record fair Sunday? :)
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:29am Doug Schulkind:

The funny thing is, Tim Smith is here, filming for the WFMU documentary. My chair collapsed ON CAMERA! Keep 'em laughing...
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:29am kat330:

Greets, Matt!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:30am kat330:

Oh, wow! Sure it wasn't sabotaged just for the film's comic relief?
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:30am Lewis:

Seems that we need a squeaky / unstable chair fund...
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:31am kat330:

It can be "bought for replacement" during the marathon maybe.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:31am ndbob:

@kat welcome back - and robert it is!
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:32am Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: Or is that just life imitating art? All your pics of clowns are coming back to you ;)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:33am Üncle Michael:

@Doug The video link was from me...but you must have listed the track differently before because nothing from that last set works, seeking it again.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:33am kat330:

@ndbob: Would have been back right about 11:00, but a business call I couldn't refuse came in at 10:55. :,
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:34am Doug Schulkind:

Turns I didn't do anything. The chair just dropped all the way down. Now I've fixed it and am back on the throne. I am such a sucker.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:34am kat330:

@Matt: You manage to hear TDC on Clay's archive yet? That was amazing.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:34am Matt from Springfield:

A very WSB monologue.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:35am listener james from westwood:

can i hear ws burroughs from a couple of rooms away? oh, yes, i can. actually been rereading his work recently, so thanks for this cut!
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:36am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, I played that Burroughs on my Thanksgiving show. What an original I am.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:37am Carmichael:

OK, back from loading up on tea. I have never been called "sweet" before. Not sure how I should take it ....
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:37am Matt from Springfield:

@kat: This afternoon should slow to a crawl, so after lunch I'm hoping!
(I like how you said the whole piece brings context, the gestalt, to all the scattered songs amEdeo's been playing from it.)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:37am Lewis:

Did you also play Alice's Restaurant?
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:38am listener james from westwood:

hell, burroughs recycled and recombined his own stuff for decades.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:38am joe:

@Lewis I was thinking how WSB was such an approprite alternative to that here on WFMU.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:39am Doug Schulkind:

@Lewis
No, but I have a nephew named Arlo. Does that count?
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:40am kat330:

@Matt: It also really echoed the "trailer trash" darkness of "Killer Joe," which we'd just seen. And always enjoyed and shivered at the dark carny /circus setting, like Freaks and Ray Bradbury.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:40am still b/p:

Would've been great if Guthrie had met Burroughs, in on a possession charge or something, while being booked for the litterin'.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:40am kat330:

@Doug: For reals?
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:43am Doug Schulkind:

@kat330
For reals re: newphew? For reals!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:44am joe:

Now looking up info on Hot 8 Brass Band wow.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:45am Üncle Michael:

I give up looking for that video...unless Doug can tell me which 2012 show featured the Bollywood chipmunks.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:45am kat330:

Is it short for a longer name, or just Arlo?
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:45am Lewis:

@joe - yeah, my partner loves to play AR at noon on Turkey day, but I have always liked WSB on that occasion.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:46am Hugo:

Back to Piers Morgan. This piece in the Daily Mail seems very sensible to me.

http://bit.ly/Z0iyS3

I normally wouldn't say that about the Daily Mail. Not too sure about the sensibility of the guy in the second pic from above. Does that thing belong in the hands of civilians at all? Looks much more powerful than the rifle I was furnished with during military services.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

The mistaken-identity murder of one of Hot 8's drummers was covered in the HBO show The Treme. The actual relatives of the murdered musician played themselves in the scene (including the man's sister who collapsed while delivering a eulogy).

Just Arlo, kat330.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:47am Van in DC:

I like these guys
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:49am Brian in UK:

@ Paul I was not ignoring you earlier but had to take Mutley out to the woods for a constutional. Do not have any Eaglesmith.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:50am Van in DC:

Man...check out the "violent death of group members" of them in Wiki

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_8_Brass_Band
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:52am kat330:

No, you played Eastwood's "I Talk to the Trees" on Arbor Day, right?
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:52am Üncle Michael:

I subscribe to the 45 rpm, 200gram Bluenote reissues and I missed a pair of releases due to an expired credit card number and just got caught back up and there was a Pete LaRoca title in there...Basra.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:53am joe:

Keep going :)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:54am Van in DC:

It had to be. :)
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:54am joe:

@VAn yeah that some pretty heavy stuff right there.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:55am Van in DC:

ooooh! Free pizza calls, gotta go! Happy Friday all, thanks Doug!!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:55am Brian in UK:

Basra, where the oil used to just bubble up out of the ground. Trouble was they could find no use for it then. Ah Mesipotamia.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:56am Carmichael:

I like Eaglesmith's Time To Get a Gun.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:56am Doug Schulkind:

Happy anchovies, Van!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:56am Üncle Michael:

Loving this groove for the second time.
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:56am Brian in UK:

Thanks van, time to make some pizza using that 00 flour.
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:56am Matt from Springfield:

The Formerly Extinct Rangda, nice finish to a show for us Formerly Extinct Humans! (What, we must have passed during the Mayapocalypse, only to inexplicably return...)

Thanks Doug! Have a great weekend, everyone!
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:57am Doug Schulkind:

Very funny, kat330!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:57am kat330:

Bye, and great weekends everyone!

Bye everyone. Thanks Doug!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:59am listener james from westwood:

have a great weekend, all, and enjoy your remaining time at the station, doug!
  Fri. 1/11/13 11:59am Paul Sherratt:

Hugo, it does make a considerable amount of sense.
Brian, I knew it was that time of a winter's day. Will make sure that soon some Eaglesmith will have landed near you..
Avatar Fri. 1/11/13 11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Seeya, UM! Have a brilliant weekend, everyone!

Standard military equipment from back in the day in the force:
