Baja Joe, I thought we were going to get to meet last week at the station! Scott had forgotten you'd canceled because of your anniversary -- certainly a valid reason! See you next time!

I feel trippy and somewhat less dead with this set, Joe. Was telling a DJ here in a bull session about the local radio wasteland that FMU has been a lifeline/resource these many months. Grazie.

@dano59: So nice to hear! Folks have been really great over this past year.

Hey, dano59! That's really nice of you to ask! The final details and timing aren't totally set yet. I will happily share what I can when I learn it. Or follow them on Bandcamp and you'll definitely get an announcement. Link in my profile.

Handy, wasn't Bruce fetching the records last show ?

I saw Tuscadero open up for Chapel Hill band Archers of Loaf right before Thanksgiving of 1996. They had a lot of energy live and were better than Archers that night, anyway.

Handy oops sorry for calling you “Handu” lol. Got three kids in here; a little distracted here!
  10:20am Rick A:

Yay, the Wedding Present, another great live band! I saw them many times. They were my best friend's at the time favorite band.

Joe McG, but see, you played what I don't have! I'll have to pull some of the 45s out later. The 10"s got destroyed in a flood. :-( HH, you were so great to help me edit, I would have procrastinated without you. I imagine it was the HUNDREDS of emails figure that scared the tax people!

Bob Dylan's 80th Birthday Approximately

Wednesday, May 26, 7 to 9 PM
on Weekly World Blues and Honky Tonk Radio Girl

Celebrating 80 years of America's Sweetheart, Matt Fiveash and Becky B team up for a 2-hour special examining what it was he done, through the lens of the blues and country music that he used as his raw materials. We'll hear blues & country artists covering Bob, blues & country songs that Bob covered, songs that Bob lifted from, and some choice cuts from Bobby Z himself, plus whatever else your opinionated hosts decide is appropriately Dylan-adjacent. Guaranteed 100% conventional-wisdom-free, sure to offend hardcore Dylan fans and too-cool-for-school detractors alike. Tune in, you will not die, it's not poison!
WFMU is a tax deductible charity organization.

Those familiar with '90s Manchester United will get this. He's a legend, quoting Shakespeare to us Brits.
