Yeah. He gave us this one : stream1.wfmu.org...
- & it opened in iTunes for me as if it was just restarting the same one as before - only - working...Should I just keep this one? 128k is the same, right?

Those look the same, but the main one may be back. Anyway, use whichever works for you. I'll let you all know when I hear more.

They all did - just a matter of degree. The Stones were Blues Roots champions - but even they did it. Who thot some old African-American Blues guy was still around, could be found & would want his royalties? It was foreign alien stuff then, & just knowing it all was exceptional. Even Dylan had to steal Woody Guthrie albums from people then...

@DaveMandl: Same for me… But with the addition of “The Blues Brothers.” Say what you will but they were better musically than “Rush” in many ways.
  Sun. 5/15/16 10:59pm Carmichael:

As a punk kid, I knew enough to see Albert King, Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo and others before they died. Gatemouth Brown nearly kicked my ass once, when I stepped on his polished snakeskin boots.

I wonder if listener Lyle has any good blues stories to relate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/15/16 11:02pm Scraps deSelby:

I don't care for Rush particularly. But the Blues Brothers to me were awful. Yes, the backup band was awesome. But the two leaders were strictly amateur. (Again: to me.)
  Sun. 5/15/16 11:02pm Carmichael:

I definitely learned about Sam & Dave from the Blues Brothers.
  Sun. 5/15/16 11:19pm rw:

Not sure I should admit to it, but it's true.
  Sun. 5/15/16 11:20pm Carmichael:

That's the point, rw. However amateurish the playing, a new generation heard about Sam and Dave, John Lee Hooker, etc.. I applaud the movie just for that.

Every Friday I listen to 'Downtown Soulville' here - & I'm just floored by the incredible Greatness of all those Soul records - & my nearly total ignorance of every bit of it. How could there be that much segregation w/ music that phenomenal?! But there it is.
  Sun. 5/15/16 11:25pm Carmichael:

Yes RevRab, I have a kinda strange noblisse oblige, where I think I have a duty to figure out where this stuff came from. No one deserves obscurity.
Avatar Sun. 5/15/16 11:28pm JakeGould:

The “Blues Brothers” were sincere comedy. The music was great. John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd were doing well funded karaoke. But if you read about their intentions in making he film and the passion Dan Ackroyd had for old blues and soul artists who were in the dumps in the 1970s, it all comes into place. Apparently they both bought a bar (or at least bought space for a weekly party at a bar) that used to be on Hudson Street in the West Village and stocked the jukebox with blues and soul 45s. I mean they were young, got a crapload of money from SNL and did something other than just blow it on B.S. Admirable in my book. More details on the bar here. tribecacitizen.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/15/16 11:28pm Scraps deSelby:

I only have the compilation Morse and Goudylight (sp?), when I was buying up everything Australian and New Zealand from the 80s that I could (and eventually I sold some of that for many many times of the original price on ebay), and AG was intriguing, but I never saw any since (because I was only buying used, being poor, but in New York, so I got a lot of awesome stuff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/15/16 11:34pm Scraps deSelby:

(To me, the Blues Brothers was also mediocre comedy. Lots of people disagree, of course. I was like twenty, and at the time I was not forgiving about mediocre comedy and music. Grumble grumble! Yeah.)

Did I forget to mention that Carol was filling in? I know I mentioned her earlier in the show.

I could've sworn you DID say Carol was filling in, so I'm not sure what KFHP is on about. Or am I the crazy one? It's always a possibility.

Carol is filling in for Therese?

@Ike: We're all crazy now. It's OK.
But yes, Carol is definitely in for Therese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 5/15/16 11:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Dave - I was distracted somewhat a few minutes ago, but I thought you mentioned Therese coming up next. All is well.
@JakeGould - Yes, it's Carol's debut of her "Serious Moonlight Sonatas with Carol" show.

Cream. There was a band. Eric Clapton. I'll tell you what, Slowhand is the wrong name for him. Catch him on the right night in some of the tiniest clubs imaginable in the remote English countryside - far, far from the spotlight - and Eric will be doing hammer-on's and arpeggio sweeps as good as Tony McAlpine or Yngwie. You think I don't know about these young players, but I do. I know that when no one is looking, Clapton likes to play behind his head, really fast, ripping, Nugent-style licks, burning up the fretboard. But then in concert, he slows it way down, I mean waaaay down. And that's the SLowhand people know. I played fourth trombone for The Electric Flag, I should know. We shared many dates with Cream. Ginger used to draw monsters for me on sheets of typing paper. I still have a few of them somewhere. Anyway, it didn't last long. Next thing I knew, Cream was history and I joined up for a brief stint with Lainie Kazan. Funny how things work out. Great show David. Thanks for the company, commentors.

Thanks Lyle. Just a note: "hammer-ons" has no apostrophe, unless something belongs to one hammer-on there. Also, Eric Clapton is definitely a lizard man from Uranus. But he's one of the schmaltzier, goopier ones. You know, like Michael Bolton. Hope to hear from you again soon.

Pacific 231! It's a composition from, uh, Arthur Honegger? I think....
