We've just reached the limits of my French knowledge. But evening, @12539.

Hi Dave, good evening.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:14pm Dave Mandl:

Hey there, George.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:20pm Droll:

Your full name is "Captain Dave Fun Mandl, Esq. XIV"? Really?
  Sun. 5/4/14 10:21pm doca:

this one is great, isn't it? alien and non-alien ears are all pleased
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:23pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: Well, not the XIVth, but otherwise, yeah.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:27pm Droll:

I don't know why contrabass goes by so many names. The difference between a "Violin" and a "Fiddle" is a violin has "strings" and a fiddle has "strangs".
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: Ah, right, "contrabass." Is there no end to the names for that thing?
  Sun. 5/4/14 10:42pm tomB:

I propose we all agree to henceforth use the term string euphonium. Any objections?
  Sun. 5/4/14 10:45pm P-90:

Ahoy Capt. Dave "Fun" Mandl and fellow Mandellians
re: "contrabass": I'm reminded that esteemed electric bass guitarist Anthony Jackson, acknowledged as the originator of the six-string electric bass guitar, has always referred to it as the "contrabass guitar", a name that seemed like it was going to stick back in the '80s, though it's wound up being known as "six-string bass."
---just to further complicate the contrabass thing
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 10:47pm Dave Mandl:

Hi P-90. Well, 6-string basses were around for years before he came along, though they were a little different from the 6-string basses of today. There's also "tenor guitar," which you rarely see, but it exists.

@fleep: Hahaha. Or has OCD.
  Sun. 5/4/14 10:51pm P-90:

What word was that repeating backwards? Anyone know? At first I thought it was William Shatner saying "Priceline!", but that's not quite it.

Hey-ho, let's go. Work detained me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:00pm pacific standard simon:

Not to be confused with Phil Rambow of The Winkies!
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:04pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Definitely not.
  Sun. 5/4/14 11:06pm HollyT:

Hi D! Sorry I'm late to the party!
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:06pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Holly. We've been waiting.
  Sun. 5/4/14 11:08pm HollyT:

Ah, Brasseau. Trés geniale
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:09pm pacific standard simon:

Not me. But happy nonetheless.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:09pm Dave Mandl:

Vachement Geniale.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:09pm Holly in NC:

I'll raise you another Holly! :-)
  🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:09pm 12539:

What's he chantanting about, Dave?
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:10pm Droll:

Like Mandl always says, "Bass is just an oversize guitar played by guitar flunkies." By any other name, it's just a big guitar.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:12pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Holly in NC. So many Hollys! (Hollies?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:13pm pacific standard simon:

@12539 - Coulda sworn I heard some bad words in there; something about "mon cul".
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:15pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: That was just your dirty mind.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:16pm Holly in NC:

Oh please no Hollies, Hollis, or Hollees. Please no. Cute spelling wrecks a perfectly fine & relatively baggage-free name.

BTW I can't wait to get the Martoc reissue.

Nico, you creepy woman...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:16pm pacific standard simon:

There IS that, Dave.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:19pm northguineahills:

Damn, this has been nice!
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:20pm Dave Mandl:

Question for the chat-board hive-mind: HollyT was telling me there were no songs about Holly. I thought of the Left Banke song "Holly." Can you think of any others?
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:20pm Dave Mandl:

@northguineahills: Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:22pm pacific standard simon:

Neil Diamond, "Holly Holy"?
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:22pm Holly in NC:

Digital Underground, Holly wants to 'ho
Burl Ives - Holly Jolly Xmas
Neil Diamond - Holly Holy
Funkadelic - Holly wants to go to California
Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:23pm northguineahills:

Dave, I wished I caught your show live more often. I'm rarely here on Sunday nights live. Also, I enjoy your informative music reviews. Keep the good work up! Salud!

Good Golly Miss Holly? Nonono...
  Sun. 5/4/14 11:25pm HollyT:

I LOVE that Morricone tune. One of my faves. Not surprisingly, the movie it's attached to is a real clunker.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:25pm northguineahills:

@Holly & pss, you guys are getting silly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:25pm pacific standard simon:

That was my Doodles Weaver impression.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:26pm Billy Jam:

hey Dave - NGH and all tuned in - just joining the show latish but better late than never
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:26pm Holly in NC:

Holly wants to 'ho is actually a great song, imHollyo
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:27pm northguineahills:

@HollyT: Yeah, Morricone was a workman when it came to soundtracks. Some movies were amazing, many were forgettable. But his music was always amazing.

Hola, Billy Jam! Nice to see you. Again, I don't see you live enough anymore!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:28pm pacific standard simon:

perfect music for this hour - love it and like NorthGuineaHills I too need to listen live more…….Thank-you Dave!

Aw, thanks.

Giuseppe Ielasi and Andrew Pekler? interesting and rewarding paring.

@ngh: Yeah, very good record.

@Holly in NC: re: "Walk on the Wild Side" Hahaha!

The only Andrew Peklar record I have is glitchy dubby technoey beats on Poles label, escape.

All Time Low - "Holly (Would You Turn Me On)"
Weezer - "Buddy Holly"
Andy Williams - "Holly"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:45pm pacific standard simon:

I have to say, the words to the Andy Williams song sound like the old dude was experimenting with acid.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:48pm earrie:

'Wholly' doesn't count, does it?
I'm thinking a title like,'Wholly Holly' would lead to much misinterpretation.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:54pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: I'm curious about that Andy Williams song now. I don't think I've ever heard it.
Avatar Sun. 5/4/14 11:56pm Droll:

Thanks, DM!

Nice job crowd-sourcing the Holly list, yinz! I didn't even think of the ones I do have.
  🎃 Sun. 5/4/14 11:57pm 12539:

Muchas merci, Mr Mandl!
