Listener comments!

  12:11pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Update that setlist! I'd love to know what I'm listening to right now. Could this really be James Brown?!
  12:15pm Drummer Some:

Pat in Philadelphia,
This is a playlist for my radio show this evening! The show starts at 6pm. (An edited version of James Brown track will open the show.) Stop back here at 6pm!
  12:16pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Ah ha, oops. Thanks. I'll tune in at 6.
  5:45pm texas scott:

record fiends UNITE!!!

uh,does scratchy mp3s count?
  5:46pm Drummer Some:

Scratchy old MP3s are the BEST. If there is one thing I ain't, it's a fidelity snob. (Though some of my best friends are fidelity snobs.)
  5:57pm listener james from westwood:

I'm not ready for summer, but I'm ready for Drummer.
  5:57pm Drummer Some:

Drummertime, and the living is easy...
  5:58pm listener james from westwood:

(But I'm more ready for summer than for another merciless siege like last winter. And I'll take fall overall!)
  5:58pm ndbob:

heya doug and everyone!
  5:59pm ndbob:

certainly not summer here today- 53 and 30 mph winds
  5:59pm Drummer Some:

ndbob, welcome home!
  6:00pm listener james from westwood:

Here comes the sun, ndbob! In musical form.
  6:01pm annie:

  6:02pm ndbob:

ty .. you are featuring a great blog today
  6:05pm Drummer Some:

Allo Ms Annie!
  6:06pm dc pat:

SON! I'm about to buy a National resonator just like the one Son is playing here..
  6:06pm annie:

sounding good in the restaurant., doug..
  6:08pm Drummer Some:

Too bad he can't teach you, Pat. (Not that you need it or nuthin'.)

This first set is definitely a dinner-eater-pleaser, Annie.
  6:11pm dc pat:

Oh I need some learnin for sure. I spent the last 30 years trying NOT to play guitar right. To play like Son is going to take another 30...
  6:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

go down to the cross roads!
  6:14pm dc pat:

Hmmm, good idea, Kitty, why not?
  6:14pm dc pat:

Beautiful tunes!
  6:14pm Drummer Some:

Marm Kitty,
We'll have no soul-selling on this here show!!
  6:15pm Amanda:

I'm getting pretty happy about Record Fiend about now.
  6:16pm Drummer Some:

Record Friends, meet Record Fiend!
  6:17pm ndbob:

that oxford sampler is great.. just listened to it yesterday
  6:17pm Drummer Some:

Not sure which number this one is. According to Record Fiend, it is from 1999.
  6:20pm ndbob:

i've heard all a few of them - all from record fiend
  6:20pm jaycjay:

I anticipate spending a lot of time at Record Fiend... starting sometime when I don't already have great songs streaming to me.
  6:22pm ndbob:

woops - a few of them
  6:24pm ndbob:

didn't the stovall sisters sing backup on "spirit in the sky"?
  6:27pm Robert:

How many songs are there that mention Zeppelins?
  6:29pm listener james from westwood:

Not sure, but there oughta be more!
  6:29pm Drummer Some:

You are correct. Norman Greenbaum was secretly the oldest Stovall, in drag.
  6:33pm ndbob:

the early fred neil singles are pretty interesting ... never seen an original though
  6:41pm listener james from westwood:

lovin' the shirley collins. iirc trouble played her today too. no such thing as too much.
  6:43pm Amanda:

Hoorayyy for Charlie!
  6:43pm listener james from westwood:

collins is one of several artists about whom i would have no clue had it not been for listening to fmu. asha bhosle's another. you can't buy this sort of musical education.
  6:45pm ndbob:

wow - i do have to get this one
  6:45pm dc pat:

Yinz are in Picksburgh, 'n all!
  6:47pm Drummer Some:

This Sir Robert Charles Griggs LP will be offered in tomorrow's Mining the Audio Motherlode post on WFMU's blog (a little bird tells me).
  6:48pm ndbob:

  6:49pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hi Doug, Hi Everyone! Checking in to say hello and a happy belated birthday to our favorite give-the-drummer-some-er.
  6:50pm Drummer Some:

Just received email from the proprietor of Record Fiend. Seems like a right nice individual. (How could someone with a big ol' heart for music not be?)
  6:50pm Drummer Some:

Oi! Wendy!
  6:51pm ndbob:

great! was wondering if they were listening
  6:52pm Record Fiend:

Apologies for coming to the party late, but I just wanted to extend my appreciation in real-time for featuring my blog here. Long may you run.
  6:53pm Drummer Some:

The pleasure/honor is mine/ours, Dear Fiend!
  6:53pm ndbob:

thanks for a great blog record fiend:)
  6:55pm listener james from westwood:

A body could get very happily lost in your blog's winding musical caverns, RF.
  6:58pm dc pat:

Poor Skip...there's a place in my heart for crazy rocknrollers...
  7:01pm ndbob:
