Listener comments!

  9:03am Bad Ronald:

Thirst moment

Boo Hoo!
  9:07am HotRod:

This 78s collection is FANTASTIC!
  9:09am zedprophfer:

EVERYTHING doug plays is fantastic.
  9:15am El Thatchmo...:

The radio show with the small town values and a global village playlist!
  9:16am Ken From Hyde Park:

Yep...I'm often blasting the theme song as I drive into work. Going in late today so I can rake up a few leaves. Got to keep ahead of the leaves.
  9:17am dc pat:

If I have to hear the word "folksy" one more time, I don't know what I'll do...
  9:18am HotRod:

What did those leaves ever do to you?
  9:21am Bad Ronald:

Leave the leaves aloooone!!!
  9:22am HotRod:

Cafe! Now THIS is a Puerto Rican classic!
  9:24am Hugo:

if not to say, fantabulous ...
  9:24am Parq:

I hear ya, DC -- that, and g-less gerunds, and calling mothers "moms".
  9:25am bzul:

Ever since Sarah winked at me last night, I feel my stem's gonna let go and I should be raked up, stuffed in a bag and left on the curb for pick-up. Or else like I should be mulched.
  9:26am dc pat:

Oh, the g-less gerunds!! She's drivin' me nuts!!
  9:35am Hatch:

Personally, I was surprised that she seems to know how to read. Based on what they were saying on cable news before the debate, I assumed she was illiterate.
  9:37am annie:

i went to bed after the first half hour, how did the rest go?
  9:37am C:

Was anyone else creeped out by the way she talked about oil and drilling?
  9:41am Parq:

The pathetic thing is, the folksy stuff works. This is the sort of thing that convinced Americans eight years ago that Bush - Bush! - was all set to sit down and have a beer with them.
  9:41am gumby:

This songs a mother plucker
  9:41am bzul:

Illiterate, no -- but she sure never met a sentence fragment she didn't like....or toss, to make a light fragment salad.
  9:42am HotRod:

  9:44am gumby:

I'd have a drink with Palin, but voting for her and creepy teeth is a whole 'nother matter. Those mother pluckers is loco!
  9:44am annie:

parq, that's the scary part, like a beer and soccer will be our saving grace. just use words like folks, moms, and dropping g's at the end of sentences.. the emotional band-aid
  9:44am dc pat:

Wait, is this THEE Johnny Burnette?
  9:45am Paul Sherratt:

Ford Nix !
Hooray !!
  9:45am g:

where to begin with that debate . . . but god damn, if it isn't hard to hate a good lookin'(g) woman. that said, I think Palin has a bright future . .. narrating infomercials or exercise videos. That nasally/raspy motivational speaker voice with the words coming out the side of her mouth! totally creepy.
  9:47am bzul:

Ford Nix is fun Friday music.

If you dance to Ford Nix music, do you swing your pardon 'round?
  9:47am Paul Sherratt:

Well over here it seems impossible to avoid seeing Mrs P. Does she originate from Stepford ?
  9:51am DeemerDave:

In fairness, now you have to provide equal time to John Mcain.
  9:58am gumby:

John Who? What's he running for something?
  9:59am Paul Sherratt:

Mr Earl Taylor ... howdy neighbo(u)r !
  9:59am bzul:

Running for Uber Maverick.
  10:03am Paul Sherratt:

McCain has a strong UK presence.
  10:13am Cecile:

Gimme a P! E! R! C! O! S! E! T!
what does that spell? No, seriously, I've been on it for five days, what does it -

  10:15am cecile:

bzul, you mean "uber loose cannon crazy uncle"
  10:16am stingy d:

cecile... what are you doing later?
  10:17am Cecile:

uh, sleeping, watching Animal Cops, sleeping and then taking a nap.
  10:19am bzul:

No, no, Cecile...he'll hear you! Oooh..Do not make him angry! Don't you know?

(Stingy - I was going to make a similar inquiry...but your cannon was looser.)
  10:20am stingy d:

when you need someone to watch animal cops with you, just let me know.

and bz - i'm always ready to jump
  10:24am cecile:

It's like that rock group Van Helsing said, "go ahead and jump"
  10:25am bzul:

If the forementioned candidate was the lead singer, he'd be David Lee Wrath.
  10:27am Parq:

Paul S, I'd love to tell you that what you're seeing on your local news doesn't accurately represent the US, but tragically, I fear it does.
  10:28am cecile:

Doug, would you consider playing the Microscopic Septet if it makes aesthetic sense?
  10:29am Roger:

I love your show, I've been listening to it for a long time. Something about this Jazz Doctors (whoever they are) song made me want to write and thank you. Keep it up.
  10:34am Doug:

I just nabbed this Jazz Doctors record recently. It was really hard picking a track because they are ALL that good. A real find. Glad you dug it.

I would love to add the Microscopics to my playlist... but not today. I've got one more cut in this set lined up and I gotta play it cause it leads in nicely to the following set. You'll see. I promise.
  10:34am stingy d:

i want pills
  10:37am GP:

A folksy mornin (dropped g..even) to ya dc pat and to everyone else.
  10:38am cecile:

I defer to your curatorial wisdom, Doug.
All God's children want pills, stingy. I got blessed, and all I had to have was knee surgery. Whoo hoo!
  10:43am dc pat:

I was right, I didn't know what to do...
  10:43am cecile:

MINGUS is always the right answer.
  10:43am Bad Ronald:

Gimme Back My Roofies!!!
  10:43am stingy d:

i'm gonna jump off something - not too high - and fall... shall we say awkwardly. either that or i am gonan go have a talk with a guy i know who is in a world of pain so to speak.
  10:48am stingy d:

  10:53am stingy d:

wow this sarah palin winking thing.... i'm swayed.
  10:54am GP:

stingy d
She had me at "drill baby drill"
dc pat: just dance, that is what to do
  10:55am stingy d:

i think i am gonna change my name to judge mills.
  10:58am Parq:

Do the Jazz Doctors take Oxford? I'm willing to go with a $5 co-pay on CDs and $12 on live gigs.

I've got papers on my desk where someone keeps saying "mom" instead of "mother", as in "this is about a single mom". Gahh.
  10:58am stingy d:

nah forget it

doug your knowledge and sets are always very impressive and highly apprecited, you are a good explaina

-judge mills
  10:59am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  10:59am Parq:

Annnd, there's a great set of Autumn-themed downloads, including several versions of "Autumn Leaves", on the Locust Street blog.
  11:00am cecile:

AH -MEN!!!!!!!!!!!
  11:01am GP:

Ray Scott...preach it my brother
  11:01am Paul Sherratt:

Mingus has been the subject of " Composer of the Week " on BBC Radio 3, this. The 5 episodes should be available to hear on " Listen Again " in the US ( for just a wek after the original broadcast )

You can find the links here :

If they don't work - hugo will know how to break in and enter. 'Listenergate, y'all'
  11:02am g:

Ray is righteous. If only he could be saying 'she' instead of 'he'
  11:04am Hugo:

back door man, Paul?
  11:10am Paul Sherratt:

Back Door Man indeed hug ( who folks, this week has enabled some at the BBC to listen to their own progammes again ... )

This gospel sequence - ooooff ! pow !!
  11:12am Paul Sherratt:

You don't mind if I call you you 'hug' do you you hugo ?

( Must do something about these screen settings .. )
  11:12am GP:

stingy d how about just settling for Judge Reinhold?

P.S.: Lovin the Gospel sounds.
  11:12am ?:

doug, is any or all of this gospel stuff blogged?
  11:13am gumby:

this stuff makes even an atheist feel the spirit.
  11:15am Paul Sherratt:

" When in doubt, head for the gospel sequence ! "
  11:19am Hugo:

Paul, no problem. In my language, that word has an entirely different meaning ...

at Doug's place, it's always a short distance from the "yee-haw" set to the "hallelujah" set and a thrill to hear the gospel from Ralph Stanley, as it were ...

should be some Louvins in there to tie it all up, wouldn't you say, Paul?
  11:26am paul b:

Now when you say 'Rochester' like that, is that some kind of Jack Benny reference?
  11:30am Doug:

Paul B,
Sure sounded like it, didn't it?
  11:31am Parq:

What a shame this is radio, or Doug could do one of those Benny takes with the hand on the chin.

Is the comment column flashing yellow for anyone else out there?
  11:38am Sean Daily:

No, Parq, that's just the acid kicking in. Take some vitamin B12 and lie down. You're in a safe place, dude. You're in a safe place.
  11:39am GP:

Parq, apparently your threat level has increased to blinkin on ths end.
  11:39am Hugo:

Papa Lightfoot, an old favourite, heard on the national radio about 1968 .... aah, memories, I don't recall having heard it ever since (until now, that is)

parq, no, I don't think Doug is doing a psychedelic set today ...
  11:41am i am dj'ng tonight:

judge mills!
  11:42am i mean tomorrow:

  11:42am Parq:

Hmm. Either my browser is going bazoo or I am. Unless Sean is right. I'm not here, I'm over there, my hair is green, I'm a tree.
  11:42am Sean Daily:

Seriously, though, I'm getting it, too. So your computer probably isn't going to blow up or anything. Wait a minute, what's this smoke coming out of my compu
  11:43am bzul:

Yes, when it updates, it's givin' me the jaundiced Palin wink, too.
  11:44am Cecile:

prcoset kiking in...
  11:45am Ike:

I don't see any blinking in either Firefox or Google Chrome. What browser(s) are you using? Internet Exploder?
  11:45am Jonathan Marx:

From down here in Music City USA, thanks for that bit of Nashville soul courtesy of Herbert Hunter.
  11:53am Kenzo:

I sometimes get the blinky blinky, too. It's momentarily showing Doug's background color (which is kinda yellow) before showing Doug's background image (which is something darker).
  11:54am GP:

Tell em Mr. Stanley
  11:55am stingy d:

ralph stanley is always on point
  11:56am Ted from Baltimore:

Doug -- When I saw that Ralph Stanley had endorsed Obama I KNEW you wouldn't miss it. Thanks for a typically divine show!
  11:57am Ike:

YEAH Ralph Stanley!

There's a good New Yorker article on this general Appalachian topic.
  10:44pm mike tp:
