i assume the huntington in the last song is actually in WV and not Va... was a major producer of Pullman cars
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Jan Turkenburg:

I'm feeling slow today because i spent nearly 2 hours browsing bandcamp last night when i should have been sleeping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am fred:

@WR: But the next (last?) bandcamp Friday is next month
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am Jan Turkenburg:

Is bandcamp closing down???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am MHLee:

Bandcamp Friday being a regular thing was part of the coronavirus deal I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am Jan Turkenburg:

oh, I've been too busy with other musical sources, I guess... didn't know that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am Rick from SC:

I feel like I'm listening to Spanky and his gang.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Rick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41am WR:

Yes May 7 is still the last announced bandcamp Friday. I was looking at what Andrew in Waterloo has on his purchases and wishlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45am Rick from SC:

There was a story about Tipping and the Pullman Porters played a important role, on the Throughline podcast. Very interesting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am chresti:

Bandcamp is closing down or just the Fridays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am fred:

@chresti: It's only the end of the Fridays when they give up their cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am MHLee:

I didn't realize Jolson was recording this early.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am Jan Turkenburg:

Rick, do you mean this one? www.npr.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am Rick from SC:

Thats it Jan. The history of tipping is quite convoluted
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am Jan Turkenburg:

@MHLee, I didn't either, but he must have been about 27 in 1913, so it makes sense...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am MHLee:

The Pullman Porters were also important to the early civil rights movement because it was an okay paying job that hired mostly African Americans
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am chresti:

Ah, thanks fred.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Mx. Granny (e/em):

Yay, trains!!! Whoo! Whooo! I've been to the town where Buster filmed The General. murals of him are all over the little town of Cottage Grove, Oregon. Hi, Jan and folx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Granny!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

Guten tag, alles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Mx. Granny (e/em):

Bandcamp was so helpful to a lot of my friends over the past year. Yay!
chrestikins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

Granny, I was just reading about The General and that train/bridge bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am fred:

@Mx. Granny: Did you get a message from The Baffler? I suspect something went wrong, because I got the same message last week, but I haven't asked them about it yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich, it's such a fun place to visit, you can still see the land, it looks quite similar still. Also, child prodigy nature mystic Opal Whitely was from there, and her face is all over the town, too. What an odd little town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am MHLee:

That was Rick that suggested the podcast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am Mx. Granny (e/em):

@fred: I haven't received a message from them yet. Wonder what happened? hmmmm…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Rick from SC:

Thanks, MHLee. The pod is well worth listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am chresti:

Grannykins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

I missed your house tour, Granny. Are you maybe going to do that again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

Hi Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Mx. Granny (e/em):

hey Rich, that's too bad! We don't have any others scheduled, though it was such a blast folx may be interested in more. Perhaps we could set up our own little tour for Sheena's pals?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

That would be groovy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am fred:

@Mx. Granny: most likely, what happened is that they're a small outfit, and something got lost (I mean, when I renew, I get an email about a gift subscription from me to myself). I'll contact them, but I don't want to press them about it, it's free stuff, it happens or it doesn't

Jan, I think that image is Memphis Minnie.

Hi Jan! I love me some trains songs when I can hardly open my eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am Mx. Granny (e/em):

@fred: yeah, I appreciate the offer, either way. They're a cool publication. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am Mx. Granny (e/em):

Franco! Did you ever hop trains?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

Trains loom large in my childhood. My maternal grandfather was a train engineer. He ran up and down the Pacific Northwest on the SP&S (Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Mx. Granny (e/em):

U1K! I feel like I haven't seen anyone in a century. I've been offline a bunch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Jan Turkenburg:

@MHLee. Here's where I got it from: blondiecutsarug.blogspot.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

and my paternal grandparents had a house just feet from the tracks in Manhattan Beach, Oregon and we'd stand on the porch and wave to the engineers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi U1k!
Hi Franco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am fred:

@Mx. Granny: it's tough for such publications. I've been trying to get Dissent to take my money for more than a month, to no avail so far...

Ah, MHLee, you're right...

I love Henry Hall! This is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am Franco Twinkie:

Granny, I lived by a Southern Pacific switching yard, so after school we would walk over and climb on the trains, jump on for short rides, get all dirty, then walk home. But never long rides. Chresti on the other hand
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Adam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Mx. Granny (e/em):

alright, chrestikins, do tell!!!
  11:14am Listener Robert:

"I've been working on the railroad" was definitely our song as children, because Mother's side of the family really did work on the Pennsylvania Railroad and its successors -- 3 generations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Robert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am Jan Turkenburg:

Thanks MHLee, I've used the picture you've posted now

I want to go to the railroad museum in Weed Oregon.
  11:15am Listener Robert:

Two cousins only recently retired from there.

Hi, Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Franco Twinkie:

Granny, I just scrolled backwards. I didn't realize The General was filmed in Cottage Grove. I remember staying there and the banana slugs put the California variety to shame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Mx. Granny (e/em):

Listener Robert: so cool! I heard that my great grandfather was a conductor on the trains, but it's a part of the family I have not much knowledge of… I always liked to wear the conductor caps and overalls!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Mx. Granny (e/em):

I guess the conductors don't wear the overalls! who does?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am MHLee:

@granny those sort of fmaily rumors are dangerous to me... i spent weeks tracking my family to the old country based on a rumor of great-grandparent's occupation.
  11:19am Listener Robert:

Daddy never did any RR work to my knowledge (though he did various things transiently in his youth), but he did have a good train whistle by forming his hands into an ocarina shape and blowing. Mine works only sometimes -- not at the moment, I just tried it. I think it depends on the skin's condition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am chresti:

A couple friends and I climbed onto a sitting boxcar in Guadalupe, expecting to wake up in SF in the morning, but only got as far as San Luis Obispo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

I would be funny to hear 'audiophile' conversations from around the Edison cylinder, 78 RPM record era.
"Listen to this, Ted! It's as shrill as a Bosun's whistle!"

*This was in '73, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Franco Twinkie:

I'm waiting for a wax cylinder collector to step up and have a show somewhere on WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am MHLee:

We've got trains here that go out about 100 East then go North and back West to about 60 miles directly North of us. It doesn't look like it would be efficient way to hobo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am MHLee:

Got to get around mountains and rivers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

My maternal grandfather died before I was born. He died on the job of a massive heart attack. They couldn't stop or the train would be late. A doctor declared him dead at a stop and he 'finished out his shift' (as the man who took over for him said) and they delivered him to his base station near his home where my grandmother met the coroner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

Franco, wasn't there a wax cylinder show? Or did he just play 78s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Mx. Granny (e/em):

I am digging these tales!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Franco Twinkie:

Rich, I don't know. I haven't been listening to WFMU that long. There are worlds within worlds I know nothing about.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Jan Turkenburg:

couldn't do a choo choo show without it!
  11:33am Listener Robert:

There was a weekly slot where one program (the Antique Phonograph Radio Show) alternated with Thomas Edison's Attic. I think the latter was independently produced or at least pre-recorded, and if it wasn't exclusively cylinders they were prominently featured.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am MHLee:

@Franco I actually slept on this station for years. I have no idea how I got here, but originally I had a copy of Songs in the Key of Z. Somehow, I ended up regularly listening to this one.
---------------------------------------------------------
there's a Sun Ra version of this from live in Monrtreal where he spends like five minutes with an out there piano intro
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am Jan Turkenburg:

It's one of the links at the left under the playlist. It's what i could find within wfmu archives, maybe there's more...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am fred:

I think MAC played old stuff, some cylinders might have been involved at least in part
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am RiChoo-Choo in Washington:

I play a lot of cassette releases on my show, but due to the relative unpredictability of the medium, difficulty in cueing, etc, I just play digital rips of them.
I'm hoping to get my studio type cassette deck to the tape machine hospital soon, so may be playing cassettes live without a net.
  11:38am Listener Robert:

Here: wfmu.org... . My recollection had it back a lot farther than it actually was. I thought it was in the 20th Century, but it was exclusively in the 21st, and my memory is probably spuriously merging it with some other (probably WFMU) program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am WR:

quick work break to read comments and skim the playlist. Thank you to Jan and all you WFMU streamers. Great program, great stories. Laters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am fred:

I think MAC played cylinders (previous comment didn't get through)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am MHLee:

@RiCh Yeah that's what I do with vinyl... copy it to digital and collect digital recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am chresti:

I've listened off and on via itunes for a number of years, it's after I lost itunes that I came to the website to listen and discovered commenting was possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am MHLee:

There's a fantastic version of this one a posthumous release called Tiny Tim's America.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Jan Turkenburg:

I'm glad you made that discovery, chresti :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am Franco Twinkie:

MHLee, funny, I remember exactly when I jumped on this train, but I don't remember what show it was. The DJ(?) was musing about where a live recording of The Great Society was from. I thought I knew answer but had no idea on how to comment. I fixed that, and having been shooting off my mouth ever since.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am MHLee:

I can tell you when I got here, but not why I went to the site. All I know is my fascination with the Tiny Tim archive got me interested in these old songs so when I saw this show I jumped in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Jan Turkenburg:

Good to have you aboard, MHLee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am chresti:

Franco, I think it was Larry Grogan's show?
