  8:52am Maggie in Rock Tavern:

  8:55am listener james from westwood:

good friday and happy july to you all!
  8:56am listener james from westwood:

for those listeners in the southern hemisphere, you have my envy. i am so not a summer type of guy.
  8:56am annie:

morning maggie, and all you other great listeners
  8:58am ?:

morning Doug and everyone!
  8:58am Drummer Some:

Hi Maggie (Mom),
"Sinnerman" was by Mij (who usta busk in Washington Square Park. He called his version "Grok (Martian Love Call)." I'm not kidding.
  9:01am ndbob:

morning Doug and everyone!.. this time I remembered to type my name in
  9:01am Drummer Some:

And awaaaay we go!
  9:02am Drummer Some:

Hiya ndbob, thanks for getting up early(ish).
  9:02am Bob:

Hearin' it, feelin' it...
  9:02am Maggie in Rock Tavern:

WOW, thank ya, son!
  9:03am ndbob:

Didn't know if I would get i tin time this morning
  9:05am Drummer Some:

Hello Bob, our first palindromic listener of the day (that has nothing to do with Sarah Palindromic, mind you).
  9:07am still b/p:

SWM seeks Martian of any color interested in musical love-calling and long groks on the beach.

Good morning.
  9:08am annie:

hey BP!
  9:11am still b/p:

Hi, early annie!
  9:11am Brian in UK:

Good aftermornin' everyone.

Is it true true that juxtapositions are welcome along side palindromes.
  9:11am ndbob:

As you can see I'm still half asleep.
  9:11am marcury:

  9:12am El Thatchmo:

Thatchmo in the house! Watching from his outpost @ the Fuddyduuddy station on The Red Planet!
  9:12am Jon:

Bring on the wifty men!
  9:13am texas scott:


And ain't got shit to do.
  9:13am annie:

does that say wifty?
  9:13am annie:

hey ts, sorry i missed your show this week..
  9:14am texas scott:

no apologies,AA.
it's ALL good.
  9:15am annie:

  9:16am Drummer Some:

Hello Brother Marcury (definitely NOT a wifty man).

And welcome, King of the Wifties, El Thatch!

Texas Scott, I'm glad you're here.
  9:19am listener james from westwood:

hey hey, all!
this pryor song is wonderful. monkey-oriented songs are always welcome.
  9:21am Listener Bill:

Dave the Spazz would appreciate the monkey song.
  9:21am ndbob:

When is this Johnny Morrisette song from?
  9:21am Paul Sherratt:

I believe every single one of these bluesmen.
  9:23am Drummer Some:

ndbob, I was trying to find a date on the Morisette. A slightly earlier record on the same label was from 1961, but the Morisette song sounded more like late '60s to me...

That is because you are very impressionable, young Paul.
  9:25am BodegaMan:

hey drummer folk, I may not hang out here too much today so have a great long weekend.

It's my dearly departed mom's birthday, all I can tell you is BB King was right: "Aint nobody love me like my momma, and she could be jivin' me too."
  9:25am ndbob:

That's what I was thinking Doug... he made a bunch of good records.. ever hear the early ones he did under the name of Johnny Two Voice?
  9:26am Paul Sherratt:

I stopped listening to the few uk blues radio shows years ago simply because the djs played too many records you could NOT believe in !
  9:26am ndbob:

Morisette made the only soul record I know of that mentions Uncle Remus
  9:27am Drummer Some:

Johnny Two Voice? Sounds wild. Gotta find it...
  9:28am Brian in UK:

Respect BodegaMan. I'm having a different day, It's my wife Lili's birthday today.
  9:28am Drummer Some:

Bless you and your Mama, BodedgaMan.
  9:28am postmanpaul:

Hey hey Doug, thanks for keeping the postman posted! Hey hey esteemed listeners. Hey hey 'n ho ho.
  9:29am Maggie in Rock Tavern:

wish I'd found this a few minutes earlier:
  9:30am annie:

morning pmp..
  9:30am Drummer Some:

Oi oi oi, Postie!!
  9:31am postmanpaul:

af'noon annie.
  9:31am ndbob:

I love these astronaut songs.
  9:33am listener james from westwood:

you take it slow today, BodegaMan. i hear you and feel for you.
  9:34am BodegaMan:

thanks all.
  9:34am Paul Sherratt:

And on the subject of anniversaries our wedding was 34 years ago today - the last day a UK citizen won at Wimbledon. We didn't celebrate in July last year - waiting instead until 1st November ...
  9:37am ndbob:

Happy Anniversary Paul!
  9:37am Drummer Some:

Wow, Paul. A firm handshake for Gill and big kiss for you.
  9:39am ndbob:

I watched an odd Thai movie yesterday - "Sick Nurses" - after an hour of mayhem and gore the nurses are playing beach volleyball during the closing credits.
  9:41am Brian in UK:

ndbob sounds like a film that does not need subtitles!!
  9:42am ndbob:

exactly Brian!
  9:44am listener james from westwood:

i've heard of j-horror & k-horror... would that be an entry in the t-horror genre?
  9:45am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks ndbob. Doug I will now leave that kiss-spot unwashed for the forseeable etc etc. My that 45 minutes has flown by ..
  9:46am postmanpaul:

...sorry mister, I won't take no more short cuts across your immaculately mowed boring lawn, relieve myself behind the hedge when someone is looking, not tip-toe thru your tulips and, when you're out of town I really must stop ogling your wife hoovering in that sexy petticoat of hers. I promise.
  9:46am ndbob:

Yep James.. what i would really like to find are some North Korean monster movies - I have seen trailers.
  9:47am Brian in UK:

Congratulations Paul on your 'leatherette with vinyl inserts' anniversary.
  9:48am Drummer Some:

Those NK movies are documentaries, not science fiction.
  9:48am Brian in UK:

PMP Remember your P318 bottom line 'or as directed'
  9:51am ndbob:

There are quite a few North Korean music videos on YouTube.
  9:52am Drummer Some:

Thanks for the "sexy hoovering" image!
  9:52am postmanpaul:

Thanks Brian in UK. Too hot for the inserts tho, chaffing probs. I don't hang about :")
  9:54am postmanpaul:

You're' welcome, boss. Anytime.
  9:56am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks. I think we now fully deserve that home cocktail bar
  9:56am listener james from westwood:

monster movies from the hermit kingdom. the mind boggles.
  9:57am Leigh:

Mornin' Doug
  9:57am ndbob:

Have a link to that blog Doug?
  9:57am still b/p:

With a little more on the low end, Chua Chang Man would've had kind of a Wu Tang Clan flow.
  10:00am ndbob:

Here's the trailer to the North Korean film "Pulgasari" for after Doug's show.
  10:01am Drummer Some:

Monrakplengthai is here:

Be sure to scroll back, back, back through the archives. The links are all still working!
  10:03am trsh:

Coffee and Canada Day greetings to one and all.
  10:03am Drummer Some:

Hi Leigh!
  10:04am Drummer Some:

And Trish too? The royalty is really on board for today's cruise!
  10:05am annie:

i've fallen victim to a very bad internet connection this week... extremely annoying and very irritating, to boot. .. fiber optic be damned.
  10:05am ndbob:

Thanks Doug! I actually do know that blog , but had entirely forgotten about it... I once found the Thai disco version of "Can't Help Falling in Love" there.
  10:06am Leigh:

Been in grad skool, been crazie
  10:06am trsh:

if royalty, then also the dregs, over here.
  10:10am Brian in UK:

trsh The Duke & Duchess of council estate are in your manor I believe.
  10:12am Drummer Some:

Hey Trish, if you see Brigette DePape, give her my very best.
  10:13am trsh:

I'd certainly like to shake her hand.
  10:14am Brian in UK:

Doug, quiet word in your shell-like, it's trsh.
  10:16am trsh:

who? what? Hi Brian in UK. The British Royalty is in Canada for our day of independence. Kinda kooky, that.
  10:22am Brian in UK:

Well trsh for the last twenty years the royal family seem to be acting like any other family ie divorcing, acting out their lives in a public & embarrassing way. I appreciate that this has been going on for centuries with all royals but they seen to have brought it to a new nadir. 'manor' is a colloquial term for your hood.
  10:31am trsh:

Ah. Ottawa is pretty far from my neighbourhood. And better Canada day than Victoria Day I guess.
  10:37am Drummer Some:

Let's get this comments thread back on the key subject: beer.
  10:38am Carmichael:

OK, July 1st. Hi Doug and everyone.
  10:39am Drummer Some:

Hey there Carmichael.

And happy 11th birthday to my darling daughter, tomorrow.
  10:41am Brian in UK:

Hear hear, fuck royalty & privilege.
At skool there was a band called The Beathovens.
Pinch punch first of the month, Carmichael.

Mines a cold one, Doug.
  10:42am Carmichael:

The cask-conditioned IPA was most excellent last night, Doug. If I wasn't so busy post-work today, I'd perform some more quality control.
  10:42am ndbob:

and a happy birthday to Doug's daughter!
  10:43am Carmichael:

Brian, here in the States we say "rabbit rabbit rabbit!" on the 1st.
  10:44am Carmichael:

Dana Gillespie is an old favorite of mine. Pay You Back with Interest is on constant rotation in my iPod.
  10:45am Drummer Some:

Pay You Back With Interest, a minor WFMU hit.
  10:45am Brian in UK:

The response to pinch punch is 'punch kick for being so quick'. Like most childrens games & playground calls they tend to be violent like Struelpeter.
  10:46am trsh:

I'll drink a British pint any time. But oh, that Halifax, NS made ESB.
  10:47am listener james from westwood:

I have a list in my head of "FMU hits," either b/c I first heard them here or b/c they became popular w/ multiple FMU DJs.
  10:48am Brian in UK:

London Pride has been my favourite pint for the last 40 years.
  10:48am ndbob:

nice set here Doug
  10:50am Brian in UK:

Are you baking Lincoln's cake on the morrow, Doug?
  10:50am northguineahills:

tuned in just in time for Mellow Candle!
  10:52am still b/p:

Your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandad's beer:
  10:52am Drummer Some:

Northguineahills, "now" is always right on time. Pull up a chair and start dealing.
  10:53am Carmichael:

Didn't Michelangelo have a radio hit in the 70s? Or am I thinking of someone else?
  10:53am Drummer Some:

Way to inject some class in the conversation, still b/p!
  10:58am Brian in UK:

His double album Sistine Chapel was big in Italy.
  10:59am Drummer Some:

They had a big hit with "David" back in about 1504.
  10:59am glenn:

happy canada day, all of y'all
  10:59am Carmichael:

I'll bet it had a gatefold cover.
  11:00am Brian in UK:

Sales hit the roof.
  11:00am Carmichael:
  11:01am Carmichael:

Surprisingly bland cover art.
  11:01am glenn:

gatemouth brown's twin brother gatefold.......
  11:02am Brian in UK:

The devil is in the detail!!

Happy daze glenn
  11:02am northguineahills:

Thanks still b/p, for the link. I won't be getting much work done before work now.
  11:05am Carmichael:

BTW Foreigners, today is a Friday before a 3-day holiday here in the US. Which naturally means I'm the only person at work.
  11:06am listener james from westwood:

Carmichael, I hope this means you wore shorts and/or a t-shirt to work. Unless that's the daily uniform to begin with. In which case, I hope you brought beer.
  11:08am Carmichael:

I wish I could bring beer, or better yet go to where the beer is. I'm sitting here in my official Friday dress-down Hawaiian shirt and jeans.
  11:08am Brian in UK:

Is it Step Grand Fathers Day on Monday? It's scary the card shops sell 90th & 100th birthday cards nowadays.
  11:10am Carmichael:

No, it's "Blow an Appendage Off" day on Monday. Should be oodles of fun.
  11:10am glenn:

carmichael is jimmy buffett's agent.
  11:10am Drummer Some:

My pops will be 92 in September. I better get me a card.
  11:12am Brian in UK:

Mentioning Buffett reminds me of Margaritas. Hmmmmm. My shout.
  11:13am ndbob:

Plenty of fireworks here this week... they are only legal here for a ten day period through the fourth.
  11:13am glenn:

or better yet, warren buffett's agent.
  11:17am Brian in UK:

Is this track on Vanguard, Doug. Just checking.
  11:17am Howie Supnik:

really enjoying this.
  11:18am trsh:

Great birthday celebrations all around.
  11:20am Drummer Some:

Right you are, Brian. Any more typos (while I've got my blue pencil handy)?

Howie! Howie!

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Howie Supnik, the man with whom I did my first ever radio program—back in 1980. The first record we ever played skipped!
  11:20am Brian in UK:

Doug, can this set run to the end of the programme?
  11:21am Drummer Some:

If only, Brian. But the next track, the last of the set, will set your hair on end. (In a good way.)
  11:21am listener james from westwood:

howdy, howie!
  11:21am glenn:

and what was that first record?
  11:23am Drummer Some:

Glenn my dear boy, which first record. Of that set, or of the whole shebang?
  11:24am glenn:

the record that skipped, yo.
  11:26am Brian in UK:

By the way Doug, what have you done with the Caboodle when you moved? The Kit is always easy to tuck away but the other can be tricky.
  11:26am Howie Supnik:

Tenor Madness - Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane
  11:27am Drummer Some:

Beat me to it, Howie. Thanks. Tenor Madness was also the name of our show together.
  11:29am Drummer Some:

I haven't seen Howie in, what, 28 years?
  11:29am Howie Supnik:

really great memories for me.
  11:30am Howie Supnik:

OUCH, really??
  11:31am Drummer Some:

I left Oberlin in January '83. Have we crossed paths since then?
  11:34am Howie Supnik:

sadly, no. Can we make it to a reunion?
  11:35am Howie Supnik:

Did you go to the Steel Drum reunion? I couldn't make it.
  11:42am Drummer Some:

I couldn't make it either. I was being thrown a 50th birthday party that same weekend. (Let me just say, yikes.)
  11:42am Dewey:

Give us a job.
  11:43am Howie Supnik:

Vic just had hers, and mine is in December, and let me also say, yikes. This is the year of many 50ths.
  11:45am Drummer Some:

Hey Dewey, I could use a J-O-B, too. If you find one, let me know.
  11:48am Drummer Some:

Yes, this would be the "Wifty Men" set I referred to in my earlier email. If you didn't get the email and would like to be on my mailing list, send me a quick email (click on the little yellow envelope atop this page). I send out a weekly newsletter to over 400 fellow listeners and readers of my Mining the Audio Motherlode blog posts.
  11:54am ndbob:

I had totally forgotten about the Gordon Alexander LP.
  11:55am Drummer Some:

Mebbe I'll put Gordon's Buster on the Motherlode next week.
  11:57am listener james from westwood:

a gentle, tony-coulter-eqsue end to the show. nicely done and much needed today.
  11:58am ndbob:

and a Pittsburgh record here
  11:59am ndbob:

I remember seeing them on TV in Baltimore.
  12:00pm Drummer Some:

The Tony Coulter reference is a big compliment in my book, Listener James.
  12:00pm Brian in UK:

Peerless as ever Doug. Is the British equivalent of wifty mean fey?
  12:05pm Drummer Some:

Fey seems more gender-preference oriented than I mean. Wifty in my parlance suggests complete non-agressivity, highly prone to emotional epiphanies, often experienced in public.
  12:06pm glenn:

so, drama queen then.
  12:06pm ndbob:

Great show as always Doug!
  12:08pm Wifty Man:

Oh my GOD. Sonic double rainbows!
  12:08pm jk:

thanks for the show this morning Doug. Always listening, even if not chatting
  12:08pm Drummer Some:

Thanks ndbob, thanks everyone!
  12:09pm Howie Supnik:

Thanks Doug, talk soon
  12:09pm listener james from westwood:

righteous show, doug! have a great weekend all, and a safe and restful 4th to those in the you ess ayyyyyyyy (as fonzie might call it).
  12:15pm trsh:

Many thanks for the good listening.
Happy holidays.
