Listener comments!

  8:38am texas scott:

and floating down that stream,I am.
a bit early though.
  8:46am Drummer Some:

Texas-sized Hellloooo to you, Scott. Thanks for "being there."
  8:46am glenn:

is texas scott any relation to texas hold 'em?
  8:48am glenn:

excellent sounding las bravas cover. las bravas, right?
  8:52am texas scott:

shake hands with danger,glenn.
  8:54am Drummer Some:

RIP, Ferlin Husky...
  9:01am listener james from westwood:

ahhh, started the stream mere >seconds< before the opening theme! mornin' all!
  9:02am Drummer Some:

LJfW, it is an honor, Sir. Our sommelier will be with you in a moment.
  9:09am listener james from westwood:

Capital! I'll need a pairing with Trader Joe's High-Fiber Cereal and walnuts.
  9:11am Brian in UK:

Hello y'all. Bought Calle 54 recently. Wow what a gift to mankind. Have you seen Bebos film yet Doug?
  9:11am glenn:

i was gonna say, ferlin husky. he was 85. and a truly classic moniker.
  9:14am Drummer Some:

I would go with a fruity sauvignon blanc from New Zealand

No, I haven't. Yet. This is your second reminder to me, I believe.
  9:15am Brian in UK:

Our smellier is called Spencer.

Yes, it is indeedy.
  9:17am Drummer Some:

Lovely maudlin number from the incomparable La Lupe next.
  9:17am Parq:

Doug, seriously, you haven't seen Calle 54 yet? (I cringe when I her US residents calling it "Cally Fifty-Four".) Oh man, go out as soon as this show is done and grab the DVD.
  9:19am Drummer Some:

I will check Netflix right after the show. I swear.
  9:22am Brian in UK:

Oh yes Doug this is hitting the 'relentless' spot. Does that mean we have to give it up for Lent?
  9:22am still b/p:

Parq, Parq... I've have expected you or someone else to quickly throw a "Cally Fifty Four, Where Are You?" in here.

The only thing keeping me from crippling depression for missing something called Dreamers Cha Cha Cha from an album called Hot Chas that it's still early in the show and many remedies will come.
  9:23am Parq:

B/p, I'm slow in the morning. Thanks for picking up my cue for me.
  9:25am Drummer Some:

@still b/p
I will do a private screening of that song after the show...
  9:33am Cheri Pi:

Hello! I can't believe I made it here finally. Now it feels like Friday.
  9:38am Drummer Some:

Cheri Pi, I am so delighted you're here.
  9:49am BodegaMan:

good to be here and listening. crazy nice in NYC.
  9:51am Drummer Some:

It's already up to 62°F here in Pittsburgh. Can I get a weather witness from each of you listeners?
  9:54am Randy:

Hi Doug. This bagel and whitefish is for you! Oh and it is supposed to be 70+ today.
  9:59am Drummer Some:

Hi Randy! I love (or as Woody Allen would say, "lurve") whitefish. Just don't leave it out in the sun.
  10:02am still b/p:

53, with 60 expected in southern Maine. Amen. I went to get a nice last dose of wintry features on a trip north last week, so I'm good for the change now.

Didn't John Hartford sing "Don't Leave Your Whitefish in the Sun"...?
  10:03am gumby:

Belt it out like it is ADA!!!!!!!!!
  10:07am listener james from westwood:

70 and mostly sunny in Bergen County, NJ. Slept w/ the windows open for the first time in months last night.
  10:11am BodegaMan:

I have a bunch of Numero releases, including the first Good God! collection. they do put out some great works. As of late, I feel like it's a bit of lazy man's record collecting. As in, the feeling of discovery through Numero isn't as exciting. So I've avoided them in the past year. any other thoughts on Numero?

I say that but I fully expect to get the Syl Johnson box when the time is right.
  10:17am annie:

especially obnoxious browsers this morning.. nothing loads at all.. finally made it here... had to wash and wax a floor, so i'm running late.. good morning everyone!
  10:19am Drummer Some:

I have NO problem letting others do the heavy lifting in the record collecting universe. Numero Group has my blessing

Thanks for persevering. So glad you're here.
  10:21am annie:

yep... happy to be here, i get to work upstairs today scraping and painting a door, so i'm gonna hopefully be listening all morning.. and tonight we have our first formal dinner at the inn. 40 people, private party. and tomorrow as well.
  10:26am BodegaMan:

@annie, sound like a big project you have on your hands. Good luck tonight.

where's the inn?
  10:28am annie:

hamden inn, hamden new york. the owner brought me on board to work here. i'm pretty stoked. the produce will come from their large organic farm across the street. and almost all food will be locally sourced..
  10:29am Hugo:

I like the heading of this show, though I suspect the third word is best pronounced in a sober state.
  10:30am Drummer Some:

You think like a DJ.
  10:32am Drummer Some:

Are you anywhere near Wallkill, NY? I have a pal who lives there who's an amazing chef and is always looking for a good cooking gig in the region.
  10:33am Drummer Some:

Heartbreaking film about the current hardships of Kalaparusha can be seen here:

It's not easy to watch.
  10:35am Carmichael:

Good morning Douglas and Friday people.
  10:38am annie:

mr drummer; i'm not close enough to wallkill for his easy commute. the chef we have is pretty snazzy... his cooking is nice, very nice. his wings are to die for... he hails from louisiana and other places southward, so we are assured of some pretty spicy dishes. we are closer to the susquehanna river, and the farm is right on the delaware.
  10:38am Drummer Some:

Pull up a chair. We were just going to go over capital expenditures for fiscal year 2012...
  10:39am annie:

oh, the bartender is the old weather (?) guy on fmu from eons ago.
  10:42am Drummer Some:

Sounds wonderful. I wonder who the fmu weather guy would be?
  10:43am Drummer Some:

Amazing set of South African tunes, next!!
  10:45am gumby:

drummer some + Africa = spiritual bliss!
  10:47am glenn:

maybe les nesman needs a gig.
  10:49am annie:

robert... he might have used a fake name.. i'll ask him
  10:50am glenn:

this seems to be a good source for all kinds of music.
  10:51am glenn:

i'm sure this is a canadian thing, but i can't hear the name don cherry and not think of hockey night in canada.
  10:55am Mitten John:

@Glenn What about Grapes?
  10:56am glenn:

frankly, i think he's a dick.
  10:57am Chicago Joel:

thanks for the great gems this a.m.: kalaparusha, great music and these south african gems. loving it!
  10:58am jill:

Hello all -
Doug: can you give me the site that you mentioned that had a bunch of Ornette on it? I'll give Kalaparusha a look see this weekend, if i am not too depressed from the coverage of Japan.
  10:59am Drummer Some:

@Chicago Joel
Extremely glad you're digging it.
  10:59am still b/p:

Leave for S. Africa in a few weeks. Tour materials include funny/silly countdown calendar: "21 days until you see the penguins!"
  10:59am Drummer Some:

Destination Out:
  11:01am Brian in UK:

@ glenn crossword clue 'to egg on' (five letters)
  11:02am Carmichael:

Doug, you don't know how close you are with the expenditures comment. What else do you do in public sector management on a Friday??
  11:03am don:

smashing, doug!
  11:05am Brian in UK:

This comp has got The Super Tens on as well has it not Doug?
  11:06am Drummer Some:

The only public sector I deal with on Friday (or ever) is the listening public.


@Brian in UK
Yes! The Super Tens tracks are especially lovely on this collection.
  11:11am Brian in UK:

I've never been a fan of electric guitar played by white boys, so how does it sound like a different instrument when in African hands? It's something I have pondered for many years. Waste of time really. Just enjoy.
  11:12am glenn:

i'm thinking......
  11:13am jill:

it's all about soul, my friend.
  11:14am Drummer Some:

This groove goes on for another 10 and half beautiful minutes. What a joy.
  11:14am don:

  11:14am Carmichael:

@Doug: that's because your job actually makes a difference.
  11:14am glenn:

depends on the white boy, i think. i agree with jill, but more than that it's the groove in the african stuff. and, lack of concern for virtuosity.
  11:17am Brian in UK:

@ glenn 'Thinking is the most dangerous process known to man' Winston Churchill. Not much of an guitartist but a good bricklayer by all accounts. Fact.
  11:19am Drummer Some:

Now if I could just figure out a way to make even a tiny little bit of cash doing anything remotely like this. As the saying goes, I ain't broke, but I'm badly bent.
  11:24am monica:

Bump Jive - what a perfect title! Lovin' this set, Doug. Welcome back to regularly scheduled programming. A joy to hear you back in your normal groove.
  11:29am Brian in UK:

@ glenn sorry for the delay I was carried away by that last track. Answer: Toast.
  11:32am Hugo:

Speaking of cash, if I get some for the application I'm drafting now, it may take me on a trip to Kenya. Howzat?
  11:32am glenn:

ooooooooh. i hate the obviousness.
  11:34am Drummer Some:

I LOVE being back to normal.

See if you can find our Muslim Socialist president's birth certificate while your over there. (snark!)
  11:35am Elias:

Doug was that band name that you like "Bougies"? It means "spark plugs" in French. At least according to the AC Delco spark plug boxes that I purchase by the crate.
  11:36am Drummer Some:

The band name was Boogies (from South Africa, where I think it means "boogies"!)
  11:36am glenn:

i'll trade my neo con ratfucker prime minister for a bag of rocks right about now.
  11:38am Brian in UK:

@ glenn swap you a coalition.
  11:38am Elias:

Oh well. I'm gonna pretend they meant "spark plugs".
  11:38am honest ed:

Sent north to plunder the resources.
  11:39am glenn:

i'm perfectly happy with a coalition. what i think is going on in the u.k. is a puppetmaster being supported by the puppets.
  11:41am Hugo:

@Doug: Ho-hum
  11:41am Drummer Some:

This is the Kaleidoscope from Mexico, not one of the three or four other bands named Kaleidoscope. I LOVE the evocative song title! "I'm Here, He's Gone, She's Crying." Wow!
  11:44am Hugo:

Life's complicated, innit?
  11:46am don:

thanks for the clarification doug -- really liked that one
  11:47am Elias:

What a line! La la la la la la la la la la la la smoke a joint!
  11:48am paul b:

So how do do feel about that guy from Blink 182 naming his new album "Give the Drummer Some?"
  11:50am Drummer Some:

Check out the sub-headline I chose when presenting that record in a recent Mining the Audio Motherlode:
  11:51am Drummer Some:

@Paul B
I've been doing this show since before he was born. Practically.
  11:55am annie:

it's been a joy doug.. bryce's nice and next..
  11:57am Hugo:

Bryce is Some Drummer, too!
  11:57am Drummer Some:

  12:00pm listener rey:

listening quietly at work since gospel set. unable to comment til now.
Going to catch that film about Kalaparusha this weekend. There are a lot of bad cats busking all over nyc. There's a Joe Henderson look-alike in the corridor of the A train at 175th street that kills every time.
The African set was sublime.
And I can listen to that Movers groove all day long!
  12:00pm Carmichael:

Thanks again this week for the great tunes, Doug!
  12:01pm Sylvia Avery:

Please stop that guy Mac from calling.
  12:02pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks for the sweet sets, Doug, and best of the weekend to you and all lis'ners!
  12:02pm Mac:

I just wanna tell her "goodbye" ... <sniff>
  12:03pm Brian in UK:

Top dog, Doug.
  12:04pm Drummer Some:

I am always cheered to know you're tuned in.

Love you madly. See you Tuesday evening with the next GtDS! Enjoy the "supermoon" tomorrow night.
  12:26am Holly in NC:
