Listener comments!

  9:13am B2:

Hey BB, thanks for your efforts today from the folks at 911 dispatch.
  9:23am Jason:

Hey, what was that track a few minutes ago with the tuba that went "why are you killing me, why are you killing me..."?
  9:28am Jack:

Was that a tuba? My question is: who was playing it? Amazing! Thanks, Bob, for Roy Nathanson.
  9:41am Jack:

Just finished yesterday reading "Blues People" by Imanu Amiri Baraka ( Leroi Jones ) A truly great book. Recommended if you haven't read it.
  9:43am tony:

what is the answer to the tuba song?
  9:50am bob b:

Tuba: Marcus Rojas
  10:11am Adam:

Jack - I had Amiri Baraka in college. A truly amazing, unpleasant in dividual.
  10:14am octodad:

dj talking a lot. could you play some eric dolphy?
anybody hip to hal russel nrg ensemble. dig mars williams and steve hunt.
  10:18am Jack:

Adam- I can believe that. He still pisses people off ( see "Somebody Blew Up America" ) "Blues People" from 1963 is one of the best analysis of slavery, the Blues, and Jazz, ever written.
  10:24am Jack:

or I should say: that I've ever read...
  10:29am Adam:

I agree with you. I don't have any problem with Somebody Blew Up . . . (every time I used to hear news people say Condoleeza Rice, I would shout - That Skeezah Condoleeza). He is trans-curmudgeonly.

The best thing that I ever heard him say was when he was talking about being radicalized and he said "I got God in my back pocket and he aint got but six shells" One of the high points of my college career.

He does inform a lot of the way that I look at music, though.
  10:37am SmokinJ:

Another 'smokin' show bb!
  10:58am Jack:

"trans-curmudgeonly"= good one!
Yes, I feel the same way: the way I look at music (as opposed to the business of music )
