Still streaming, hyde. About to switch over to Drummersoming.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 5:56pm Doug Schulkind:

There we go. See you in 5...

Safe! <------[Robert Klein reference]

I went to crank up the stream the other night, and there was nothing. Nothing! Thought it was down. Turned out I didn't have the volume on the player turned up. Crisis averted.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 5:58pm Doug Schulkind:

I think the catcher nicked you're posterior with his glove, Gary. Maybe we should ask the umps for a video replay?
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 5:59pm ndbob:

evening Doug, Gary, Hyde, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 5:59pm listener james from westwood:

Howdy, all, and happy birthday to Doug's M-I-L!

Howdy ndbob and LJFW!

Happy birthday! Looking forward to 1917...

Hi Doug & streamers!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Oi oi oi, davex!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:04pm Gary:

I just read the FB post and now I understand ...
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Bas NL! Thanks for staying up late!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:06pm Monica:

hey there, dougeleh and faithful drummer-ites. oy, abe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:06pm davex:

Great track to begin a celebration - mazel tov!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:


How obvious is it that Mr. O'Connor is singing in blackface? Disgustingly obvious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:11pm davex:

This one (Bainão) in no way sounds 97 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:11pm listener james from westwood:

Just looked up the vote in the headline. Sad to see the 3 Progressives in the House all voted for conscription. (Both La Follettes—both Repubs, altho' Senator Robert would later switch to Progressive—voted against.)
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

I actually have this Bainão on two different records. Both claim 1917!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

@Listener James from Westwood
Plenty to get depressed about if you read too closely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:13pm davex:

It sounds amazingly modern.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Yes yes absolutely!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

Take a gander at the wild cover art accompanying the sheet music for Carve Dat Possum:
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Some more extremely modern sounds coming up, courtesy of Eubie Blake's piano (pronounced PY-anah)
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:20pm Gary:

Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:21pm Gary:

["Wow" meant for cover art, not pronunciation.] [FYI]
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Lose yer appetite, Gary?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:21pm listener james from westwood:

Heh, good music to cook by, that!

I'm pretty sure I bought that possum t-shirt on Etsy
Avatar    Tue. 4/29/14 6:23pm hyde:

this eubie blake is killer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:23pm listener james from westwood:

I will never not be a sucker for tunes that quote Lizst.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:23pm earrie:

'evening. Carved for possum pizza? Gah. The leek pizza was excellent. I did oil/garlic base instead of cream. And ++mushrooms. Thanks again for that.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Either a t-shirt or a "Home Sweet Home" style embroidered pillow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:23pm davex:

Wow, Eubie Blake. He was still playing into the 70s and 80s.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:24pm Doug Schulkind:

Before you head out to the market, LJFW, don't forget your Chopin Lizst.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:24pm ndbob:

indeed James - and good music to microwave by as well:)
Avatar    Tue. 4/29/14 6:31pm hyde:

i thought you said "goats of the saxophone"
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:31pm ndbob:

I wonder how many Collins and Harlan records there are - hundreds I'd bet
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:31pm northguineahills:

Sounds excellent, earrie!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Too bad the drummer couldn't stay on the bleat.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

I made the leek pizzza, too. A BIG family fave. I will make again this Friday and just shove the prosciutto (used instead of bacon) off to the side for my vegetarian daughter.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:33pm still b/p:

I'm late, but in time to report this freaky bit: a good friend gave me a newspaper two days ago, The Tri-Weekly Constitution from Atlanta. The date: March 23, 1917!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Getting into openly racist territory with this next one from Gene Greene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:35pm davex:

The goats just slipped into the livery stable.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:36pm ndbob:

I don't think I know what a leek looks like
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:38pm ndbob:

Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:38pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh how silly of all of you to think I'd forget to include some Enrico Caruso. He'll be singing in all-star sextet, song after next.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:38pm earrie:

Sorta looks like a giant green onion.
Flat leaves, not hollow.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:39pm ndbob:

@earrie TY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:47pm davex:

Like the piano rolls!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks Doug, fun times (1917)!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

My pleasure, NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 6:57pm davex:

Great collection - looking forward to 1919, now, and any other years you happen to have...
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:57pm Gary:

Worth the nearly century wait to hear these!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 6:59pm Doug Schulkind:

See you in 2111, Gary!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:02pm Gary:

Now I feel like making a pilgrimage to Woodlawn to pay respects to Williams
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/29/14 7:03pm listener james from westwood:

2111 sounds like a plan. Another retro show will steel us against the next year's worth of squee from the Rush fans.
Simply divine throwback, Doug! My absolute best to Ms. Marjorie!

life is long crazy and hard -- can't wait to play this for my mom.
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:04pm Doug Schulkind:

I'll get you out of here by 7:08. I promise!

Without you, Jessie, none of this would have been possible. Or at least likely!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:06pm Gary:

^Awwwww ...
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:06pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:07pm Gary:

Yes, super-loved it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/29/14 7:08pm Bas NL:

Thanks Doug; very interesting hour!
Avatar Tue. 4/29/14 7:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy birthday, everyone!
