Listener comments!

  8:38am annie:

hb... :)
  8:42am Drummer Some:

Thanks Annie. Grab a funny hat and you can whack the piñata first.
  8:45am annie:

neat-o!! 50 ain't so bad, either.. it's approaching 60 that's the eye-opener.
  8:48am Drummer Some:

Pittsburgh is in Allegheny County, which is the second oldest in the U.S. after Miami-Dade in Florida. Guess I'm right at home...
  8:50am Brian in UK:

Afternoon annie & DS. Many happy returns (of what I know not) for tomorrow. You are right annie, the aches grow more apparent when the fifties are receding.
  8:50am texas scott:

Happy fifty,Shifty!
  8:56am Parq:

What's this gritty-funky track with the spoken-word passage at the :55 mark?
  8:58am Brian in UK:

doug, was that word Mule by Jim White on the stream just now. My daughter says this is so.
  9:00am glenn:

you young kids just piss me off.
  9:01am rw in savannah:

Happy happy 50 Doug! I'm marking the occasion with a live listen!
  9:04am david:

Dropping in to say Happy B-DAY, Doug!
  9:05am Drummer Some:

Bluuuuuuurt. Grab a noisemaker thingy. Morning all!
  9:06am Drummer Some:

Yes, Jim White's "Wordmule." Good daughter!
  9:07am Hugo:

50 is just another number, if you ask me. Still, it provided a pretext for the family to fly down to Canary Islands for a week. Escaping the far north in December is a very good idea, I can assure you. So happy b-day, brother! Staying in town or heading out?
  9:08am Drummer Some:

RW in the house! I'm honored. (She offered her honor, I honored her offer, and all night long I was on her and off her.) Just a little ribaldry for the occasion.
  9:08am Maggie in Rock Tavern:

HAPPY un-50th birthday, Doug! Like Hugo said, it's just another number.
  9:08am still b/p:

At fifty, the hell with keeping your upper lip stiffty.
  9:13am listener james from westwood:

The liquor store didn't open until 9, so I'm fashionably late. Where can I put these bottles? Aside from the one I'm passin' to the birthday boy right now?
  9:14am listener james from westwood:

ANY occasion is an occasion for ribaldry.
  9:15am Brian in UK:

Another daughter just came back from Mexico. I requested a bottle of Mezcal. Was that a good idea? Might have to open it soon. What is the correct protocol. Salt? Lime? Please help.
  9:16am Drummer Some:

Glug, glug to you Listener James / I think I need some ointment for my upper lip, still b/p / Maggie, I mean MOM! / Heading to Maryland, Hugo, for a little birthday dinner with friends at my 'rents' house. Lincoln is making the cake...
  9:16am rw in savannah:

All that and ribaldry too.. I knew it would be worth it!
  9:17am Brian in UK:

Ribaldry rules. What are the rules of ribaldry?
  9:19am Drummer Some:

Amanda used the word "ribald" on her Wednesday show and it's been stuck in my head ever since.
  9:20am glenn:

ribaldry courtesy of groucho?
  9:21am still b/p:

You like the "ribbled" or "rye-bald" pronuncificationism?
  9:23am glenn:

as they say - one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.
  9:23am Drummer Some:

Ribbled...for her pleasure. (Geez, I have a one-track mind today.)
  9:25am glenn:

  9:26am listener james from westwood:

I'm a rye-bald man m'self. Rye-balder each year, in fact.
  9:27am ndbob:

morning doug and everyone!
  9:28am still b/p:

Wry-bald is what your comment suggests, though.
  9:29am Brian in UK:

Very difficult to find rye over here. bourbon, yes. First tasted Jim Beam Rye at seventeen. What a shock.
  9:29am ndbob:

and happy birthday!
  9:31am glenn:

jim beam is bourbon, no?
  9:32am Brian in UK:

It stated Jim Beam Rye WhiskEy on the label.
  9:36am Jon:

Happy Birthday Doug. I celebrated my 45th yesterday.
  9:37am Drummer Some:

Happy Day to you, Jon. We Geminis had better stick together.
  9:39am Aaron in JCity:

Happy Birthday Mr. Drummer!!!
  9:40am trish:

Cheers to you Doug. Happy Birthday.
  9:40am listener james from westwood:

once tried to train a pandora station to play lovely wwII/postwar tunes like ella's. basically wanted the feel of a radio playing in a lockheed plant somewhere 'round '44 or so.
  9:40am jill:

morning all... hope you have something special going on for your day tomorrow. Perhaps it will include a nice beverage.
  9:41am still b/p:

I know it's a ref to someone else's song, but what are the chances Ella would ever be associated somehow with the term "Deathray?"
  9:41am Hugo:

Did I hear the word whisky?

Fine shop, that one, based on personal experience ...
  9:42am PKNY:

This Dakota Staton is dope, thanks for playing!
  9:42am Drummer Some:

Thanks Aaron of JC!

Listener James, you can train Pandora, but it's still gonna poop on the rug.

Much beverage to be decanted, Jill.
  9:44am listener james from westwood:

My exact feelings, Doug. I constantly kept having to shake a can of pennies at it to not play contempo clowns covering classics done right the 1st time. Lasted about 2 weeks.
  9:44am Alex in Illinois:

Hi Doug, early next week, I am turning 47. So happy 50th!
  9:45am Drummer Some:

Pass the deep-heating rub, Alex.
  9:52am david:

Hope your birthday celebrations get 'nasty' like the 'Cos says:
  9:55am Parq:

Happy almost 50th, DrumSum. I gotta go join the real world. Maybe I'll catch hours 2 and 3 on the 'chives later.
  9:56am Drummer Some:

David, I can't play the video on my machine or it would go out over the air. My machine is "live." Its every little burp and giggle goes out to the masses.
  9:59am ndbob:

great song here
  10:05am annie:

  10:09am Drummer Some:

Ellington? Snyder? of Earl? Robillard?
  10:10am ndbob:

"Wink the Other Eye" and those other LP's of old time Kentucky music are great.
  10:13am annie:

brother of king?......
  10:13am Drummer Some:

There's something about the fiddlers from Kentucky.
  10:14am ndbob:

J.E.Mainer is 103 now.
  10:16am Drummer Some:

He died almost exactly 40 years ago (6/12/71).
  10:18am ndbob:

ah sorry thinking of wade mainer
  10:20am Drummer Some:

Holy moly, Wade Mainer is still with us! Now we REALLY ought to have a party.
  10:20am ndbob:

actually 104
  10:21am Lisa of Brooklyn:

Well, happy birthday, Doug!!! Wishing you the best here from NY! "Revel ye, for think of the alternative."
  10:24am Jack:

Hey Doug and everyone. Checking in....
  10:25am Oliver:

Grateful Dead performed "Rain & Snow" throughout their run
  10:28am ndbob:

drizzly and cold here in north dakota
  10:30am listener james from westwood:

Sunny this morning; supposed to be high 80s. Allergens mercifully less of an issue. A Mem Day weekend of this would be nice.
  10:32am Drummer Some:

You make a fine point, Lisa of Brooklyn. Revel I shall!

I discovered the Dead connection with "Rain and Snow" last night when researching that piece!
  10:36am Brian in UK:

Can I refer you to 9:11, that man Sherratt.
  10:36am listener james from westwood:

oh man, this zonked-out bollywood is just the tonic this morning. that saucy little "hel-loo" was delightful.
  10:37am Drummer Some:

Howdy Jack. Welcome to the nonparty.
  10:39am Drummer Some:

Are you familiar with North Dakota singer/songwriter Tom Brosseau? Lives in L.A. now, methinks.
  10:42am ndbob:

The name sounds familiar.. I've only lived here three years though. I will check him out.
  10:43am Alex in Illinois:

WHen the groove started on this one, I exepcted to hear someone sing: "She's a model and she's looking good"
  10:43am ndbob:

The only well known performer from here in Jamestown - well near here - was Peggy Lee.
  10:45am Drummer Some:

Or, as the townfolk knew her, Norma Deloris Egstrom.
  10:46am annie:

(listening with much pleasure; not commenting, sewing.)
  10:48am Carmichael:

Hi Doug and Doug-ites. Yay, Friday and holiday weekend comin' ...
  10:48am ndbob:

yep - i have run into people in town who knew her and her brother
  10:48am Drummer Some:

Making me some winter socks, Annie? Aw, you shouldn't have!
  10:49am Alex in Illinois:

A bet there was a lot of costume changes during this Dil Diwana number!
  10:50am annie:

yeah, i started the knitting project today... i'll have em done by february.. maybe..
  10:53am jessek:

happy nonbirthday Doug!
  10:53am Drummer Some:

I'm not called the Bigfoot for nothing...
  10:53am Carmichael:

Reading the comments. Happy B Day, you of the great Afro. Speaking of Geminis, my twin daughters, as well as listener Cecile, will celebrate their birthdays on Tuesday.

You mentioned 50 and deflating balloons in the same sentence ....
  10:54am Alex in Illinois:

Y. O. G. A. could have been the good guys' organization. You know, like Z. O. W. I. E. in the Flint movies staring James Coburn.
  10:56am Drummer Some:

Thanks Jesse K (I see the extra initial, to avoid embarrassing confusion. My wife is spelled Jessie, so that's not a problem.)

I bet the men from U.N.C.L.E. could take the mutant ninjas from Y.O.G.A. any day of the week.
  10:58am Drummer Some:

Happy B-day to the Carmichael twins. And to dear Cecile (who never seems to make it over to the stream, it seems. Ah, one can dream.)
  10:59am annie:

cecile's birthday?? i'll pop an email to her..
  11:00am annie:

..and yes, to your girls, carm....!!
  11:03am listener james from westwood:

many happy birthdays this weekend!
  11:07am Carmichael:

Bunch of crazy Geminis ... :-)
  11:13am Andy S.:

Happy 50th Birthday, Doug! I'll keep on marching to your drum...
  11:15am Brian in UK:

What a title, does it gain something in translation?
  11:17am Drummer Some:

Thanks Andy S. Bang bang, march march!
  11:22am annie:

now, to me, jazz is jazz... but oddly enough as this last set was playing.. i was remembering the film i watched last night: "letters from iwo jima" directed by clint eastwood.. hhmm.. synchronicity?
  11:23am Drummer Some:

Oh Annie, jazz is NOT jazz!
  11:32am annie:

i mean, what i mean. well as i was listening to that it didn't sound japanese.. sorry, didn't mean to denigrate the beauty that is musiccal diversity.. (if it sounds good, it is good...)
  11:36am Drummer Some:

Freeform means never having to say you're sorry.
  11:37am Brian in UK:

Ooh that geetar sound
  11:41am Carmichael:

I also love African guitar. I'm gonna hafta look into how they are tuned, what strings they use, etc ...
  11:43am trish:

Time flies. Sometimes it swims, hikes, dances and crawls along.
Happy ambling day and year ahead.
  11:45am Drummer Some:

Thanks Trish. Happy ambling to you, too!
  11:45am john:

Maybe the best set of music ever from the Drummer Some, which is saying a lot!
  11:49am annie:

mr drummer, have a wonderful day today!! .. splitting, now, for lunch.. ..great tunes today..
  11:50am Ike:

Sounds great! Makes me feel a little better despite raging allergies. (Who put these angry miniature porcupines in my throat?)
  11:52am ndbob:

excellent show as always doug!
  11:54am Drummer Some:

Bye Annie. Thanks ndbob! The pleasure's mine.
  11:56am Carmichael:

  11:56am still b/p:

Speaking of buttshakers, should I go see George Clinton & PF in town next weekend?
  11:56am monica:

another amazing installment, doug!! thank you for launching the weekend right!!
  11:57am Drummer Some:

Make peace with the porcupines, Ike.

Hey Mo!
  11:58am Carmichael:

That is a question that should never need be asked, BP. Shake your butt right down there.
  11:58am Drummer Some:

still b/p, I hope George Clinton gets outta the hospital in time for the show...
  11:59am listener james from westwood:

have an outstanding weekend, all you birthday celebrators and anticipators out there!
  12:00pm Drummer Some:

Thanks everyone for the B-day wishes and just being there. Cheers to all y'all.
  12:01pm Brian in UK:

In our house Dragons are NOT monsters. Hey. Enjoy the day, Doug.
  12:01pm still b/p:

I didn't know. That does put the appearance at risk. I like Bootsy's FB messge to all Funketeers about it.

Thanks for Happy Show on Happy Birthday Eve.
  12:05pm rw in savannah:

Great show, Doug. Highlight for me was Morris Goldberg -- very hot. Oh, and the other highlight was the word "ribald," ricocheting through the comments... Happy happy!
  11:32am Holly:

Doug - Have a wonderful birthday!
