Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 12:26am Holly in NC:

Where the heck is everyone? Hi Joe!
That said, have to put away groceries, feed cats, change water & litter, pour a glass of wine, reheat own dinner.. so while listening may not be commenting for a bit ;-)

Hey, Holly! Hey, 12539! We're now broadcasting from the lonely little studio on the 4th floor, so the general quietude seems somehow expected!

Ken, I'm really bummed out to hear about Fuzzy. Have you considered a Kickstarter?

It was you, Joe McG, who turned me onto the wonderful Kevin Ayres many moons ago now. Thank you!

I pestered you into telling me the bedmusic :)
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 12:49am Holly in NC:

I knew I could count on you for Kevin Ayers!
Also, going through my wfmu 'notes to self' - aside from Finewine you are the only DJ who *consistently* plays songs that I love, and then can't find in town or online.
That s/b your 2014 premium - songs that thwarted Holly :-)

Hey, Matt!
  Sun. 2/24/13 1:15am Holly in NC:

Been listening to this Lena Hughes a lot, so soothing - before this most excellent reissue had only ever heard those few songs on the County parlour guitar comp, full album is a low key treasure!

Would like some half sours to go w Rueben, while you're throwing...
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:28am KP:

Half sours, slaw, split a knish ... cherry peppers?
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 1:29am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Joe McG -- "Long Arm" is the Barnyard Slut song I know. Found it on a Dutch East India Comp in the mid 90s, while my friend Bill from WVPH simultaneously offered the same song to me. Never heard anything else, but it's a great little song.
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 1:29am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Is there a decent half sour to be had in NC?
  Sun. 2/24/13 1:30am Holly in NC:

Of course! & pls grab a green tomato or 2...

Green tomatoes, yes. Coffee soda?
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:33am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: Not a connoissuer enough to tell apart those pickles, but cherry peppers most welcome!

@b: Conway's in the ear of the beholder ;)
  Sun. 2/24/13 1:35am Holly in NC:

@Pete - erm, luckily Sourheen Seasons in Ch-Hill carries Ba Tempe. So indigenoys, no. Weird because many, many great picklers down here. Even odder, amazing local Jewish pickle folks make kickass kimchee, but no trad items.

Has anybody figured out how to sign in to "Friendship Society" via iPhone?
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 1:38am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I started making my own due to absurd markups by the local makers slapping the pricy "artisanal" label on their basic pickles. Easy and fast to make a good half sour, three days in cool basement.

Hello Joe, Mr Big Stuff is such a great number.

Hey KP are you there I got something to show you.
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

Hey, it's Feb 24 now. For reasons that reflect the complex Roman system of months and dates, it used to be considered the "extra" leap day during leap years. (Feb 29 is the last day until March, just as Feb 28 is the last day until March in non-leap years, but the extra day was once the 24th).
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:40am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Yeah, that whole LP is great!

This week I heard Elvis Presley's recording of "Hey Jude." My life will never be the same.
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

@Pete: Good point on the extraneous March 8th. February 30th and 31st can be considered extra days, that we don't take advantage of (at least not often enough).

@b: Wow, non Donnie Osmond lead!

Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:47am Brian in UK:

Joe, not heard Kevin's 'We Don't Serve Strangers in Blue Suede Shoes' in tribute time yet. He was fun in a very English way but covered a multiude of styles. Lol & Oldfield on the same album reflects that.

Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 1:48am Joe McG:

Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

Nice KP! The Birchmere is a great place around DC to see the old folkies and country singers.

Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:20am Joe McG:

@Nate: Fine with the distant man-crash, Nate! I think we all had a man-crush on Kevin Ayers here at FMU.

"Singing a Song" reminds of "You Ain't Going Nowhere." you have to join in.
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 2:22am Nate:

Ok. Splains my oogly-googly-ness right now. @Joe
  Sun. 2/24/13 2:22am Holly in NC:

Just read an article re KA saying how everyone was "after his arse" :-)
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:24am Brian in UK:

@Holly those effete Englishmen, nothing changes
Let's go to my chateau
We can have a good time
Drinking lots of fine wine.
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:25am Joe McG:

@Holly: It's OK, 'cause Kevin was after everyone else's arse, including most of his friends' wives.
  Sun. 2/24/13 2:27am Marmalade Kitty:

according to the font of all knowledge the oracle that is... Syd Barratt played guitar on the single "Religious experiences - singing a song in the morning. I always thought that was Barratts backing vocal also but is not credited with singing in the same article.

Artistes were so prolific in the 60s/70s compared to nowadays. Or is it it me?
Avatar Sun. 2/24/13 2:30am Yair Yona:

I remember a friend once told me that he went to see Ayers live around 2005. He then met a band member of his and talked to him about Ayers, and the guy said that Kevin Ayers didn't own any of the rights to his music and he's doing gigs because he wants to be able to support his daughter's wedding. These are little stories like these that you can fully understand the devastating effect of being a creative and fruitful musician, yet naive, in an era where record labels were the devil.
  Sun. 2/24/13 2:31am Holly in NC:

@Brian - ;-)
@Joe, will you play Clarence?
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:32am Brian in UK:

These were popular in the day but not what Mr Ayres was referring to

@Yair: Yes, that's probably true, Yair. I don't know for sure, but it sounds right. @Holly: Do you want me to?
  Sun. 2/24/13 2:33am Holly in NC:

@Yair, damn

@Holly: Why not? Let's hear some of the late Lol Coxhill as well!
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:36am Brian in UK:

@Holly we can all sing along to the chorus like a round the world wake.
  Sun. 2/24/13 2:38am Holly in NC:

Yay! Singing, Brian, and housting a wee dram...

Joe do you know anything about Bob, Daymaker and the album Borbodur?
Avatar    Sun. 2/24/13 2:45am KP:

Great set. And the bass goes on.

This performance by Jansch is so beautiful. His vocals can carry this special longing feeling like no other

I was singing Wild Mountain Thyme as I was walking in North Wales last week. Lovely. It was McGuinn's version in my head.
