Driftwood put words to the melody and retitled it "The Battle of New Orleans." Johnny Horton's version was the most famous, but I played in on the show back in 2016, so I'm playing a different version. Coming up!

the battle was fought because of bad wifi in the delta humidity so they didn't get the email of the negotiated truce. imagine the Brits surprise, they thought they were heading to a post war frolic in New Orleans and then were bushwhacked.

WYEP was truly a free form station in the 70s and 80s.
Very diverse line up including my fave Dan Barnett aka Daniel the Bee
No more.
RCT is about as close as it gets now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am listener james from westwood:

Fascinating read on the cable-laying saga was "The Victorian Internet," dealing with the rise and decline of telegraphy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am Alex In Illinois:

The thing about some folk music circles in the US, is that the subject of current politics can be taboo. So it might not be a good idea to write a fiddle tune commemorating the 6th of January.

When I first moved here I got approved to do fill-ins at WYEP, but the station's relentless mediocrity turned me away. I then went to WRCT and got approved there, but I was turned off by their ridiculous programming requirements they impose on the DJs.

At WYEP they always pick the most vanilla track on every LP they spin. Relentlessly tedious. At WRCT, they make every DJ play at least three tracks an hour from a list of CDs determined by management. An absurdity I would have never agreed to.

re: politics in music --
A recently-seen doc on John Denver talked about his activism, which, while real, was exaggerated I think in impact as described -- claim being made that he was some kind of trailblazer in musician activism and godfather of it, the prime example for the big cause pursuers of 80s.
Also in the doc, a quote on cultural impact goes something like this: "What Elvis was to the 50s, and the Beatles were to the 60s, John Denver was to the 70s."
Ehhhhhhhhh, no.

Not to be a downer but was just thinking of the terror attack at Tree of Life in Pittsburgh and Wednesday's attack on the Capitol. And that the president of the United States is complicit in the killing of a police officer.

Trump is complicit in the Tree of Life massacre (which took place five minutes from my house) as well. Prior to the murders, the shooter at Tree of Life had been huffing Trump's lie about a caravan of migrants heading for our Southern border.

Indeed Doug. He incited several attacks over the last 4 years - El Paso, Kenosha and of course Tree of Life. Sadly the cowards and profiteers who propped him up only now are willing to let him fall. The death of a police officer will be too much even for them and they'll try to slink off and pretend they were elsewhere the last 5 years. Lindsey Graham has already offered a few stunning performances in the last few days.

The folks at WYEP partnered with a horrible group, I think based in Colorado, that was voraciously devouring available public radio licenses around the country, purchased WDUQ and then summarily dissolved the jazz programming.

Avatar 10:35am Really Lisa:

TDK, well, maybe not shushed so much as schooled, corrected, shot down. For having an opinion on what I am hearing. I refrain from comments such as that these days.. unless a super smarty dj beats me to it. Then I'm the 'hey, me too!' person.
  10:36am Listener Gregory:

@Really Lisa, that is unfortunate.

Following the Depression, the Thirties were such a creative time in the USA.
Avatar 10:41am TDK60:

Really Lisa: Being corrected at least is okay, for me. I learn new stuff about music this way. I hope we don't put each other down just because we don't know, say, Scott Walker went "way-out" after being a pop star. Etc.

The last thing I desire to present myself as being on this show is an expert. I am way happier learning from you all than I am informing you. I intend to project the simple pleasure-taking in the joy of discovery and hope that it is, to whatever degree you find meaningful, palpable.

I did mention it. I've read that he died while making coffee.

I was waiting for violins and then realized that I was confusing pachanga with charanga.
Avatar 10:51am TDK60:

That's my attitude Doug, we can all have fun and learn new things in an egalitarian way. Some folks know a lot. Sometimes it can get a bit overwhelming. But Really Lisa, if someone says "It doesn't sound like, say, The Kinks at all." So what?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am WR:

@Really Lisa, please don't let stop sharing your reactions / impressions to the music on WFMU. one thing that pulled me into being playlist participant after several decades of being on / off again WFMU listener was general openness by knowledgeable folks. Exemplified by BPN oft reaction of something like: "I'll have to have that in mind when I listen again" to comments making associations he didn't hear.
Avatar 10:56am Brian in UK:

That's pretty funny. I did the same search lar year to compile a list of all my first band names. I doled them out honorarily to pledgers during the 2020 marathon.

  11:26am Dean:

"Snob" has a curious semantic evolution per OED. First appears in the 18th century as a colloquial term for shoemaker. During the 19th century it tended to mean somebody from a lower class and of little breeding, later somebody who imitates those of higher status, then finally only in the early 20th c. "A person who despises those whom he or she considers to be inferior in rank, attainment, or taste." The earliest OED illustration is a quote from Bernard Shaw, followed by Fitzgerald (from Gatsby), then Huxley, Isherwood, and so on.

I strongly urge you all to watch the new Billie Holiday documentary "Billie." It is gobsmacking. Most of the film is based on a cache of musician interviews recorded in the '70s with a journalist working on a biography of her. No one has heard these tapes before. The journalist talks with a wide array of people who knew Billie well. It is amazing, devastating, and historic.
  11:34am Listener Gregory:

@still b/p, maybe get the early Ornette Coleman albums Shape of Jazz to Come and This is Our Music. After a dozen runs through you'll be singing along with them and have built up your free jazz muscles.
