Hi David and Subway riders.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:03pm Uncle Michael:

Boring comment: Mic gain's a little hot, David. You seem to be over-modulating. Could be input gain and not output volume. Music level is low.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:04pm David D:

Thanks, Michael is the music level good now?
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:04pm David D:

And hello doctorjazz!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:06pm Uncle Michael:

It's hard to say, since it's relative. I could turn the music up at my end and see if your next break blasts me through the wall.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:07pm Uncle Michael:

I have the music at a comfy level and it sounds fine. I'll await the next break.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:08pm David D:

Thanks, the levels appear good over here for now.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:08pm Webhamster Henry:

Good evening David!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:09pm David D:

Good afternoon to you, Webhamster Henry!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:17pm doctorjazz:

nice set!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Is this a Canadian song? They do can a little sit down tap dance thing while playing guitar!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:18pm Webhamster Henry:

"Can do" that is.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:19pm doctorjazz:

Feel like doing a little dance myself!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:19pm David D:

Yes, exactly! Fiddling and tapping in this case, I believe.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:22pm Webhamster Henry:

This makes me want to run over and watch some National Film Board of Canada movies!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:26pm Uncle Michael:

I like the one about the hockey sweater.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:27pm Webhamster Henry:

I hate zehn / schön rhymes.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:28pm Webhamster Henry:

Funny alternate lyrics there!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:29pm David D:

I think zehn and schön rhyme better in this dialect...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:35pm David D:

And yes the Udo lyrics are much more to the point...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:36pm David D:

Your German must be very good then, Henry.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:56pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 4:58pm Uncle Michael:

That's the Pointer Sisters on Sesame Street.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:02pm Uncle Michael:

No. The Pointer Sisters were sisters, and big hit makers. And that's them doing the pinball count animation vocals.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:04pm David D:

Okay, thanks! I think I confused them with the Pointer Brothers who are credited on the Subway track. I guess that was an in-joke then.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:05pm Uncle Michael:

Could be! I don't know about the Pointer Brothers.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:07pm David D:

Okay, so they are THE Pointer Sisters - sorry I'm slow tonight - playlist has been updated accordingly, thanks!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:08pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, THE.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:09pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Howdy David, UM & All. The Pointer Sisters reeled me in! Now I'm looking for the Berlin Extension of the R Train.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:09pm David D:

Hey Kevin! All passengers for Berlin need to head for the last three cars...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:10pm Uncle Michael:

The R Train is the fastest way to get to Tuva.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:12pm David D:

Berlin, Budapest and all points East!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:12pm KevinfromBayRidge:

That's the first time I've heard it referred to being the "Fastest" to anywhere!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:13pm Uncle Michael:

Faster than by pack mule.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:13pm David D:

The R stands for Relative Speed.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:20pm Uncle Michael:

I'm singing "Dance With The Guitar Man" to this.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:23pm David D:

The next level of Karaoke - sing something else that works...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Didn't realize that you're close to the birthplace of my maternal grandfather in Zwickau
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:40pm David D:

Yes, I am - around a hour away by train in fact.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:40pm David D:

Have you been there before?
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:45pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Never got over. However my parents, siblings and grandfather visited in the early 80s. They loved seeing the family( who were brew-meisters). The "Iron Curtain" experience was quite unique!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:46pm David D:

Brewers - sounds like fun! Of course things have changed here since then. A lot.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:48pm David D:

Are they still in Zwickau now?
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:50pm Uncle Michael:

This song has to be about a car chase.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:51pm David D:

A mad sea voyage with a lot of extreme card playing.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:56pm doctorjazz:

Time to go home, take you in the car, thanks for the fine music, David!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:57pm KevinfromBayRidge:

My grandfathers generation( he was Kaiser-helmet wearing kid during " The Great War", is long gone but I believe my generation is still in the area. His nephew, who had been in an English POW(WWII) and "sprechen" the English, came over here several times. Great people, Very much NOT Party-people( in the bad party way) before AND after '45
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:57pm David D:

Thanks for tuning in, doctorjazz!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 5:58pm doctorjazz:

Lots of European Roots out in the listenersphere, I'm sure. Get into it another time, be well!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:01pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Now that I feel guilty about not going in the 80s and not keeping up with family, I have a project...and maybe a trip. But definitely not via the "R" Subway line!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:08pm David D:

Sounds great, Kevin. Let me know if you make any plans!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:11pm David D:

Or if you have any questions for that matter...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:18pm KevinfromBayRidge:

I coitenly( Curlie pronunciation) will! Thanks for your future help and present excellent show. Who knew a possible Saxony meet-up!
FYI, for many years my grandfather owned and was the master baker( no jokes, PLEASE!!). of the Saxony Bakery in Vernon, NJ.
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:23pm David D:

Sure, sounds like a possible plan! And anyone who knows the excellent German bread will not laugh at any kind of Meisterbäcker! I'm sure people came from far and wide for his bread...
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:28pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Best in Northwestern NJ!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:58pm Jesse K:

sounds great, I'm ready for the fadeout!
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 6:59pm Jesse K:

Sorry, didn't mean to cut you short, I'm ready for whatever comes
Avatar Tue. 4/4/17 7:00pm David D:

All good - thanks everyone - and stay tuned...
