  5:58pm Dum Diddy:

YO YO YO is this some Pink Floyd Shnick?
  5:58pm Dum Diddy:

I missed Cold Sweat, I guess.
  6:00pm Drummer Some:

  6:00pm listener james from westwood:

  6:01pm Dum Did Did:

YO YO I was confused the clock on my Computer is Wrong.
  6:01pm ndbob:

It just started snowing here.
  6:04pm Dum Did Did:

Yo Doug, no disrespect. But HOW YOU GONNA TALK OVER COLD SWEAT??!?!?!
  6:05pm ndbob:

I've read about the "Jewface" collection but i don't have it
  6:06pm Drummer Some:

It's my opening theme, Dum. Vaht can I say?
  6:07pm glenn:

i just know there's going to be some kind of iceberg crack.
  6:07pm Dum Did Did:

Yo Doug you should play some of that really really funky Old School Driving Jewish Music you know what I'm talking about with like accordions and oboes and what not? That shnick is filthy!!!
  6:09pm glenn:

is this where the alter kockers hang?
  6:10pm Amanda:

Plotzing over how good this is already.
  6:10pm Drummer Some:

We welcome kockers of all kinds here, Glenn.
  6:10pm ndbob:

Ah Naftule is great!
  6:12pm Dum Did Did:

Do it Doug. Do it!
  6:12pm Drummer Some:

From Wikipedia:

"Brandwein was known as much for his colorful personality as for his musical talent, often playing with a neon sign, reading "Naftule Brandwein Orchestra", around his neck, and with his back facing the audience, to conceal his fingering tricks. He also wore plugged-in Christmas lights as part of his costume on several occasions, which once shorted out when he perspired too much, almost electrocuting him. His wild style incorporated not only the influence of Jewish music, but also flourishes of Greek, Turkish, and Gypsy music. His warm and lively playing style would constantly jump up and down the scale and express itself in trills, slides and other ornamentation; he is often contrasted to the other famous klezmer clarinettist of his time, Dave Tarras, who had a more conservative but nonetheless very talented playing style."
  6:13pm Elias:

Doug, this is highly appropriate music for crouching behind a jukebox with a soldering iron.
  6:13pm glenn:

klezmer brings me nachas.
  6:14pm Drummer Some:

The humble jukebox repairman: Our Hero!
  6:15pm glenn:

hey, i know some stuff, for a shagetz.
  6:16pm Dum Did Did:

I went to one Passover dinner in my life it was a transformative experience. I'm serious.
  6:17pm Dum Did Did:

It was a rather difficult time for me emotionally and I was digging the whole 'rebirth' vibe that was going on.
  6:18pm Elias:

I'm even wearing a miner's headlight, although not an acetylene one. I saved this work for your show. Thanks again Doug.
  6:19pm Dum Did Did:

Two of my very good childhood friends who were born and raised jewish kind of rediscovered their faith in their ealry 20's and got really deep into it. They are very religious people now.
  6:19pm Drummer Some:

This rabbi was recorded by the filmmaker/poet/mystic Harry Smith, but the way.
  6:20pm ndbob:

wow Doug - I've never heard this before.
  6:21pm glenn:

things i was taught about easter - christ rises from the dead. if he sees his shadow, there's two more weeks of winter. charlton heston rises from the dead. he plays moses.
  6:21pm Drummer Some:

ndbob, almost no one has heard this.
  6:22pm ndbob:

Not anything going on for me on Passover - I'm one of about 10 Jews in a town of 15,000.
  6:22pm glenn:

except harry smith.
  6:23pm Amanda:

Love this music bed, love love love
  6:25pm glenn:

amanda represent.
  6:26pm ndbob:

This is an interesting CD.
  6:32pm listener james from westwood:

i thought i'd heard the name "naftali margolies" before. some google fu proved I had; among the recordings he made is a tune that sounds much like "misirlou."
  6:33pm Drummer Some:

Everyone, be sure to tune in to Give the Drummer Radio tomorrow at noon for the first ever NAZARIO SCENARIO! A sneak-preview broadcast from your humble board-op Amanda Nazario.
  6:33pm monica:

loving this comedian harmonists track, doug. happy pesach to my musical rabbi!
  6:34pm listener james from westwood:

nertz! i'll be away from a computer at a client's, but i'll be hitting that archive like a class 5 listener-cane!
  6:34pm Matt Lisle:

Feeling this one for sure..
  6:35pm Drummer Some:

Hey Monica! I think you hipped me to the Comedian Harmonists.
  6:36pm Typical Mael:

'It's a lot like playing the violin, you can not start off and be Yehudi Menuhin' (Amateur Hour by Sparks)
  6:37pm Matt Lisle:

I was feeling distinctly non-Jewish, I'm alright again now.
  6:38pm Amanda:

I am with you Monica on that lovely track -- I got all dreamy over it. And thank you LJFW! Yay!
  6:38pm Drummer Some:

Nuttin like a little JM in the PM once in a while.
  6:39pm Elias:

Doug , last year I attended my cousin's Bar Mitzvah, I had never been to one before, and it was at a very beautiful temple in good ol Pittsburgh, PA.
  6:40pm monica:

look forward to your maiden voyage, amanda!
  6:40pm ndbob:

I am as well:).
  6:40pm Drummer Some:

Elias, do you remember which temple? I live next door to one. My house usta be the rabbi's residence (until he traded up, many years ago).
  6:41pm listener james from westwood:

The Comedian Harmonists are just relentlessly cheerful. Impossible to be in a bad mood when they're playing.
  6:41pm Cal Vinist:

This Presbyterian is up off the pew and moving. Good show.
  6:43pm glenn:

don't worry cal vinist. next week doug is playing a solid hour of cotton mather's greatest hits.
  6:44pm Matt Lisle:

I'm flabbergasted by your level of research and taste, Doug. Really stunning.
  6:44pm Cal:

Glenn, that's the Beaver's dad, right?
  6:45pm ndbob:

I imagine that Bombay CD is just great.
  6:46pm Elias:

I believe it was Temple Rodef Shalom.
  6:46pm glenn:

best line from television EVER. june - "ward, weren't you a little hard on the beaver last night?"
  6:48pm Drummer Some:

Thanks for the compliment, Matt. It's all just so damn much fun!
  6:50pm Drummer Some:

Elias, that temple is one gorgeous building.
  6:50pm ndbob:

Fantastic show Doug - first time I've listened live.
  6:51pm Matt Lisle:

I'll bet. Not many stations over here could you have the freedom to do this, really. Ufffff this sounds good.. : )
  6:52pm Drummer Some:

ndbob, pleasure to have you on the bus. I invite you to tune in Friday mornings for the three-hour thrill ride. These one-hour shows are fairly theme-based, but the Friday show is a different kind of animal.
  6:53pm glenn:

a fwuffy widdow animal.
  6:54pm ndbob:

I listened to last Friday's show on the archive -excellent! I'll try to catch some of this weeks show live.
  6:55pm Matt Lisle:

I just emailed the only Jewish guy I know about this show, my friend in Brooklyn. I told him what I was listening to and he said 'so you should be! Matza for all!' My question is, what's matza?
  6:55pm Elias:

Yes, it was really amazing. My cousin took this moment in his life very seriously and the whole thing was pretty moving. I like Pittsburgh quite a bit, despite early anti-Pittsburgh indoctrination as a Cleveland sports fan.
  6:57pm Drummer Some:

Woops. Hope you, um, caught that Amanda. Not expecting a FCC-unfriendly in the middle of a faith-based program...
  6:58pm glenn:

matzoh. jewish flat bread.
  7:00pm Matt Lisle:

We get Matzo over here in the UK, I thought matza was something different. What timing.. : )
  7:06pm Parq:

Hiya, Drumsum. Had an appointment Tues evening, and so listened on Wed night. Superb show. My fave tracks -- the Septeto Rodriguez from the second set, and the glorious Slim G finale. Thanks!
