Favoriting January 5, 2009: Cowboys of the Hardwood
Extend the holidays. Some of this musict I found when Abbie (my home-from-college son) & I rebuilt our sound system and we sorted piles of CDs. Some I heard on XM Radio, flying back from Florida last week. A few were holiday gift CDs or flea market buys or hot tips from friends. I'm particularly excited about my new four-CD box —“Progressions: 100 Years of Jazz Guitar” on Sony-Legacy—which begins with Vess Ossman doing “St. Louis Tickle” in 1906 and includes recent work from Bill Frissell and others, with much in between. The newest CD from Austin radio station KGSR includes live tunes from Carolyn Wonderland and others. I also got a neato BBKing box and lots more. And don’t forget our roundball set, with Garry Krinsky’s tribute to the Boston Celtics, Cheech & Chong’s “Basketball Jones” plus Brother Bones doing “Sweet Georgia Brown” I’m on next week and I saved stuff from a nice Studio One reggae collection, my tribute to recently dead faves (Davy Graham, Nick Reynolds of Kingston Trio, Odetta), and esp. John Boutte’s “Good Neighbor” CD, hot new stuff from New Orleans. Get in touch with comments, suggestions, jokes at stevek@wfmu.org.

Listener comments!


Steve Krinsky, always good to hear you!

Hey, I like it!

still puzzled/breathing:

You could probably play this at my first funeral. Please.

yeah, i'd have to have a perpetually continuous funeral to play all the music i'd love to hear played when i go.
Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
still p/b:

It's the deep despair at not being able to dance the cumbia that'll kill me.

Steve, turn up yer vocal. Killer set, by the way.

Great stuff. Please turn up your mike, or move your voice closer to it.
Steve Krinsky:

Hi All: Sorry for the bad mic sound but glad to hear from everyone. Keep those cards & letters coming.
Robert Johnson:

Behold all that I have wrought! You're welcome.
Joe Steele:

Very nice set.

Hey Steve - Wasn't sure if you got my e-mail from this morning in time... I suggested some Otis Spann -- pianist extraordinaire for Muddy Waters -- one doesn't hear much of Otis on the airwaves... Hope all is well and that you're havin' fun...
Jack Nicholson:

Comments? You can't handle my commentss!

I'll second that Otis Spann.

There are no accidents. Everything you have done before has led to this "accident."
Otis Spann Fodder:

request for some loud r. stevie moore

Rodrigo y Gabriela? Hell yeah.
I was so bummed they cancelled their tour last year.

got Billy Stewart?

A wise man, that Aristotle...

We here in Minnesota are glad that Kevin finally proved the front office wrong. He only kept saying "get me some support and I will bring you a ring" for most of a decade.

I love that one line: "that basketball was like a basketball to me"

"I've got more moves than Ex-Lax"!!!
Meadowlark Lemon:

Now, that's what I like..........
The Goose:
