Listener comments!

  5:28pm Skylar:

ahhhhhh Doug no one sings the blues like Bobby Womack. Would love to hear more Oliver Sain especially since i am from St. Louis. Sorry i missed your show last week, i think you were going to have Amy Allison?

Good show today, thank you.
  6:15pm Doug:

Hi Sky,
Oliver Sain was such an underrated and overlooked figure. Produced so many greats outta St. Louis (not the least of which Fontella Bass). And I surely did have Amy Allison on last week. The show is archived, so you can hear it over and over and over. Go here:

  6:40pm Skylar:

Diggity Doug you are so right about Oliver Sain. The song Night time is such a taunting song. Fontella Bass another great one. Also forgot to tell you i really like the Hermon Hinston song. I will go back into the archives and listen to your show with Amy and thank you.

Hey Diggity what if i answered the math question wrong? :-)

Catch you next week. Love those blues.

  2:47am Kenzo:

Skylar: The math police are comin' to getcha!
  10:19am Doug:

I have a particular fondness for Fontella (check the archives of last month's Hoof 'n' Mouth Sinfonia to see what I mean.) I believe it was at a Sain-produced session that a local trumpeter, Lester Bowie, met his future wife, Ms. Bass.

Happy addiing!
