good tuesday, all!
when i saw vintage nfl films footage on the tv at the gym this a.m., i had a feeling we'd lost a classic player.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 5:58pm Doug Schulkind:

If we lost a Vlassic player, we'd be in a pickle.

I half-soured on your sense of humor, Listener James

mostly I remember Deacon Jones from his shaving cream commercials with Oscar Madison

Hi davex and you, too, hyde! Glad you friends are aboard the jalopy!

Crackin' open a jar of Mount Olive Sweets and settling in for the duration...

Well well well, if it isn't Artie!
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

I hope you're well, Artie.

Cool and clear after only thirty feet of drilling, I'm well indeed.

If you strike oil, be sure to share with your fellow Drummersomey Hillbillies.

Hello Doug. I notice your competition this evening on the main channel is "Catch-all code for archives of random shows/events." Scintillating, but I'd say "Give the Drummer Some" is probably a better title overall.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Damn, I was gonna use "Catch-all code for archives of random shows/events" as my next show title!

Todd-o-phonic Todd played a Fearsome Foursome 45 this morning.

Doug: You really should!
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Probably the same one that will end the coming set...

NO! I have a different Fearsome Foursome 45!

Been out listening on the mower. Great stuff...though I had The Deacon Is Movin' In in my show folder BEFORE the news broke. Grr...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:30pm Uncle Michael:

Doug, the book you referenced is The First Fifty Years. I had it and loved it.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Someone is moving their lawn just down the street from me and the aroma of new-cut grass is heady and wonderful. Just like you, Uncle Michael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:31pm Uncle Michael:

I remember the pages that showed the evolution of the uniforms and equipment. George Halas as a Decatur Staley...and the full page image of the state of the art was Bob Lily!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:32pm listener james from westwood:

thank the nine christs for fine music like this. as i listen, i am fact-checking the ages of the members of prefab boy band one direction. oy.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

Yes, that's right, UM. Nine-year-old me gave that book to my father, then didn't relinquish it for years. Do you remember that photo of our man Deacon flying over the offensive line?
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

It's that tenth christ you gotta watch out for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Catch all code for drummers of random songs! Hey Doug and everyone!

Oh wow, a colleague said today that "one of his heroes", Deacon Jones "just died"--didn't know it was just just now died.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:33pm Uncle Michael:

I do...but not so clearly like you do. I remember a great picture of my man Butkus.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Apropos of nothing: My wife's grandfather played for Amos Alonzo Stagg.

drummer some playlist is pretty sportsy lately. i think it's time for some chest bumps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:36pm northguineahills:

It is Rosie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:36pm Uncle Michael:

I prefer Rosie's duet with Ray Milland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Fearsome Foursome! If you ever wanted to hear nursery rhymes at a sock hop, this the group to hire!
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

Our hero Jesse Kaminsky will hit the stream paddling with another episode of KAMINSKY KAMOUTSKY immediately following this show, at 7pm (ET). Here is Jesse's playlist page:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Totally not thrilled with George Allen (Jr), and think they were better Redskins coaches than George Allen (Sr), but the Coach Allen was very loyal to his players, so no offense taken to Deacon stumping for his son.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

@Matt from S
You have it exactly right about Allen/Jones. George Allen Sr was fiercely to his players. He always called Jones the greatest defensive end in NFL history. I believe Allen introduced Jones for his Hall of Fame induction speech. Jones was obviously be loyal to Allen, Jr.

Fare thee well Deacon Jones

Two heads are better than one, Uncle Michael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:45pm Uncle Michael:

can you imagine waking up and finding Milland growing out of your neck?
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Better than having him grow out of your [bleeeep].
Avatar    Tue. 6/4/13 6:46pm hyde:

oooh, it's lefty fiddler Daniel Huggins Williams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

The East Texas Serenaders are a welcome recurring band on GTDS--pretty cool of you to know their members, hyde!
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Well these tracks I recorded off Spotify really sound shitty. I'm guessing they do that on purpose. I am such an emeffing cheapskate.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Avatar    Tue. 6/4/13 6:51pm hyde:

@Matt only remembered because it always gets pointed out he was a lefty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Wray Men!!

@hyde: That's why there were so many fiddlers named "Lefty"! :)
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

If you want your children to grow up a whole lot in a short time, drag 'em into the room for this next and final track. It tells the truth and the nothing but the filthy truth.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:54pm ndbob:

excellent show Deacon Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh wow, Deacon was one of the four (along with George Plimpton) who held down Sirhan Sirhan at the Ambassador Hotel right after he assassinated Robert Kennedy: ""So I see George Plimpton has the gun pointed at his face, and I'm concerned that it is going to go off, so I put my hand under the trigger housing and I pulled back the hammer so it couldn't strike. I wrench the gun from Sirhan. I find the pin and I ripped it out and held it. Now I have the gun in my hand, so I shove it in my pocket." "
Avatar    Tue. 6/4/13 6:54pm hyde:

@Doug awful funereal here today. but good pickup tune to go out on. oh, didn't he ramble.
Avatar Tue. 6/4/13 6:55pm Doug Schulkind:

@Matt from Springfield
No, that was Rosey Grier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Aaah, I'm stupid--I linked to the last surviving member of the Foursome, Rosey Grier, and quoted from his page. Please attribute the above to him! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: Good thing the children don't speak Cajun!! ;)

Doug!!!!!!!! Everyone!!!!!!!!!
@Artie - dang, as a fellow NCer I perhaps stupidly assumed you'd be down w the long-running Mt Olive boycott.
Always 2 sides :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/4/13 6:58pm Uncle Michael:

Unitas is GOING DOWN.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:58pm davex:

Matt: Exactly - good tune though.
Doug: Great set - who knew there were so many songs with the same original name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

AMEN, Deacon! A rousin' Hallelujah to the dear departed Deacon Jones--the deceased Rams in Heaven will be glad to have him home for their next afterlife NFL game!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/4/13 6:59pm listener james from westwood:

fine sendoff for the deacon, doug! thanks!

Have a great evenin', everyone!

@Holly: Farm Labor Organizing Committee was able to organize Mt Olive way back in 2004, and called off the boycott soon after. 6000+ guest workers covered under collective bargaining agreement.
Avatar Sat. 6/8/13 12:09pm bobdc:

(Because of some travel, I'm a little behind on listening to your shows.) Jones' singing career reminded me of a bit of confusion I had when I was about 12: I knew that "Jim" is short for "James," and that actors are sometimes singers, and that Jim Brown the running back was also an actor; a schoolmate had to explain to me that James Brown was not the same person.
Avatar Sat. 6/8/13 12:11pm Doug Schulkind:

I think if Jim Brown and James Brown had been the same person, the universe would have imploded. In a good way.
