  9:09am still b/p:

..Although once in a while, cursed circumstances trump intentions and I'm Showless Joe.
  9:09am Parq:

  9:10am Brian in Uk:

Hello all, twas our wedding anniverary last Tuesday. I was drinking Bloody Marys prior to 'I do' 26 years ago to bring myself round from the previous nights libations. So that's my choice Mr Drummer.
  9:10am Maggie in Rock Tavern:

Coffee, from fresh ground beans and French press coffee pot, here in my office overlooking the fog-bound Hudson.
  9:10am Doug Schulkind:

Listener James, your Don Mossi references always bring me back to my childhood. I have this fantastic Don Mossi card in my collection"
  9:10am ndbob:

drinking coffee now, making breakfast in a few
  9:11am Paul Sherratt:

i'm thinking about making a pot of coffee.
  9:11am Doug Schulkind:

Fantastic Brian. Much love and congrats from your radio friends.
  9:12am annie:

james, i quit coffee many years.. thought it was hurting me. stayed off it for a long time til i started dating a coffee drinker.. got me hooked again.
  9:13am Doug Schulkind:

Hello Brother Paul. I am always happy to have your company.
  9:13am dc pat:

I just had an everything bagel and now my mouth hurts...
  9:13am El Thatchmo:

"Trane still blows, and the oppression still grows, and junkies still OD in ghetto halls"
  9:14am Brian in Uk:

Thanks Doug.
Paul, just got back from Shropshire, stayed here, cranky place.
  9:15am chris in durban:

just a quick check in and hello from down this end of the world - thinking about my friday evening beer right now - soon come
  9:15am Doug Schulkind:

This sublime Bhimsen Joshi comes from, where else, Holy Warbles:
  9:16am Doug Schulkind:

Allo Chris! We have to talk more about future doings. I am as eager a beaver as ever chewed wood.
  9:16am listener james from westwood:

Doug, that card also appeared in a long-ago LCD (aren't they ALL long ago, really?). Your sly placement during paste-up, or another staffer's work?
  9:17am Doug Schulkind:

And yes, Chris, Mankunku will be represented in the Coltrane tribute music!
  9:17am chris in durban:

feared you would be Doug - all been quiet on our end - hoping for some space come my summer break from mid NNov
  9:17am listener james from westwood:

Brian in UK, Hunter Thompson would approve of a morning Bloody Mary or five for, as he put it, the nutritional content.
  9:18am Doug Schulkind:

El Thatchmo! You have dropped that quote in this space before! What is the source, pray tell?
  9:20am chris in durban:

glad Mankunku gets the nod Doug
  9:21am glenn:

i consider myself to be a reasonably knowledgeable baseball fan, but who the heck is don mossi?
  9:21am dc pat:

love double reeds!
  9:21am ndbob:

Holy Warbles is truly amazing.
  9:23am Doug Schulkind:

Must've been someone else's Don Mossi, Listener James.

I adore these love ballads sung by what sounds like 12-year-old kids.
  9:24am Brian in Uk:

LJfW homemade is the only way with a touch of sherry.

Hoagy Carmichael's Little Old Lady is one of my favourite Coltrane toons.
  9:25am dc pat:

..and the bass from those drums is amazing!!
  9:25am ndbob:

Played for Cleveland i think? I remember having his baseball card.
  9:25am Richard:

Hope your other cats are doing well, Doug.
  9:26am dc pat:

the melody reminds me of Italian music.
  9:26am Paul Sherratt:

Good day Doug, glad to be here ! Trying to encourage one or two other wise men to venture on in.

Brian, that's a smart Shropshire spot indeed. Diversification job, I guess.
  9:27am Doug Schulkind:

Thank you for inquiring, Richard. One of our other beasts is still really freaked out. He won't go in the basement (which is where our old cat chose to spend most of his last days). Unfortunately, that is where the cat box is. (This too shall pass.)
  9:27am Parq:

Google-image Don Mossi and it will surely ring a bell.
  9:29am Balthasar:

Sayyyy, this music is something...bringin' me gifts. I like it!
  9:29am Doug Schulkind:

I put a link to a Don Mossi card in comments above...
  9:30am dc pat:

Drummer some: let me know if you need more cats--mine are driving me insane...
  9:31am Parq:

I am as dilettantish about baseball as it's possible to be and not outright hate it, and *I* recognized that mug the moment I saw it.
  9:35am holland oats:

awes show drummersome (as usual)
  9:38am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Holland. Thanks.
  9:43am El Thatchmo:

Last Poets. OD or White Man's Got a God Complex, maybe
  9:44am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, very Last Poets-ish. Thanks Bro 'Mo.
  9:44am Richard:

How interesting to hear the Koko cut -- she sounds so different on this from the Koko I know (what seeems like a lifetime ago, I co-produced an album she did for Alligator, "The Earthshaker"; she was a real sweetheart).
  9:45am jill:

Good morning all! This music makes the dreary grey day a little brighter.
So far, every song that you have played is in itself a tribute to Trane and what influenced him. Good work sir. Here's a good read on the Indian concepts in Coltrane's music:
  9:46am glenn:

well, i checked him out, interesting looking guy.
  9:47am Doug Schulkind:

I will always hear the Wang Dang Doodle version of Koko in my head.

And THANK YOU professor. Jill. Big apple on the desk for you!
  9:49am holland oats:

sign me up for henry townsend's podcast!
  9:50am dc pat:

Floyd Jones is killin it!!
  9:50am dc pat:

lot of Wolf there...
  9:51am Doug Schulkind:

Nice Henrry Townsend downloadable here:
  9:52am ndbob:

Thanks Doug!
  9:52am Artie:

Koko kills the Wang Dang Doodle, but don't forget that first Pointer Sisters LP when you go to the shelf.
  9:52am holland oats:

@drummersome danke
  9:54am glenn:

howlin' wolf is the greatest. period. full stop.
  9:55am ndbob:

That J.O.B. collection is great!
  9:56am El Thatchmo:

There's a Last Poet talking in the Panther's Black Power Mixtape movie. I went w/ a cop the other night. Both of us cried. Well worth watching.
Stokely and Angela! OMG!
  9:57am dc pat:

glenn: I'm with you...but some times I have to go with Son House.
  9:58am glenn:

oooh. fair enough. i do love death letter blues.
  10:10am Doug Schulkind:

I still think Stokely was a COINTELPRO plant, but that's just me.
  10:11am Listener Bill:

Saw Raphe Malik a few years ago. Amazing show.
  10:11am El Thatchmo:

Angela was a mega-fox
  10:12am Doug Schulkind:

Both Raphe and Glenn Spearman (on tenor here) are now gone. So damn fucking young.
  10:19am listener james from westwood:

Very nice—Sarah Webster Fabio gets more love this Friday!
  10:20am Doug Schulkind:

SWF kicks the show off so brilliantly every week...
  10:21am listener james from westwood:

El T, thanks for the good word on Mixtape. Had been very curious about it.
  10:22am listener james from westwood:

I've had weeks where I've ticked off the days by DJs' opening themes. "Jujus" has always been a welcome sonic milestone.
  10:23am Doug Schulkind:

Someday soon, I should play the original unedited full-poem version of Fabio's "Jujus: Alchemy of the Blues."
  10:24am holland oats:

this is so good - her voice sounds familiar but i can't place the name
  10:25am listener rey:

Good morning Doug and all my fellow listeners,
Digging the Trane today. AFTER Doug's show, tune in to wkcr-fm in nyc to hear their annual 24 hours of Coltrane birthday broadcast.
  10:27am Doug Schulkind:

You are SO right, Rey. WKCR's birthday broadcasts are holy rituals of the highest order. Thanks for the heads-up.
  10:38am holland oats:

oh duh!
  10:44am Listener Bill:

We just lost our beloved cat Munchkin. It has been very traumatic.
  10:44am Brian in Uk:

Just seen that Pharaoh Sanders is coming to these shores in December. Mmmmm.
  10:44am ndbob:

ah the great Lowe Stokes!
  10:46am monica:

hi, doug. listening in honor of the late great mouse. and all the tremendous tunes as well. i know there's a hole in your soul right about now...
  10:47am seang:

yee haw, move it on over baby
  10:47am listener james from westwood:

terribly sorry to hear that, bill. bad week for furry friends.
  10:48am Carmichael:

Good morning Doug and everyone. Happy Friday.
  10:50am Domenic:

Mansion on the hill has holes
  10:54am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Monica, big ol' hole in the soul, for sure. Mouse was pretty much at my feet, hanging out with me for the past 16 years. Virtually every radio show planned during that time was with Mouse's companionship. And you know, he loved every selection.

Oh no, Listener Bill. I'm so sorry for you.
  10:55am El Thatchmo:

Oh, come on Doug!?!
  10:56am ndbob:

Sorry Bill.
  11:01am Brian in Uk:

Claude & Peris send their best.

Papa Wemba has some good dance moves, so do his backup singers!!
  11:02am Carmichael:

Lots of passings in the DrumSum diaspora this summer, it seems.
  11:02am Maricôt:

truly amazing show today, i'm off with much sorrow, catch up later. thank you as always, doug,
  11:02am Doug Schulkind:

Mr. Hazlewood too much for your compromised immune system, Thatchmo?
  11:03am Doug Schulkind:

Yay Maricôt!
  11:07am Domenic:

This is the crystal fruit you don't mind choking on
  11:08am Doug Schulkind:

Domenic, you are now the officially recognized poet laureate of Give the Drummer Some.
  11:10am El Thatchmo:

Tom Jones with Blood Poisoning!
  11:11am El Thatchmo:

and an opiate habit!
  11:11am ndbob:

This is great!
  11:16am dc pat:

crazy how much bow wow wow sounded like Papa Wemba
  11:18am Carmichael:

  11:23am Listener Bill:

This Sonny Simmons track is nice as was the talkover Sonny Simmons earlier
  11:25am annie:

i've been sitting over there on the office chair entering numbers into spreadsheets.. listening, not commenting.. enjoying it all very much.. sailing through this paperwork ..
  11:26am Doug Schulkind:

Blessed Sonny, who spent so many years living on the streets of San Francisco.

You truly are a renaissance woman, Annie. From organic gardening to spreadsheets—and back!
  11:27am annie:

gotta fill in all the cracks, drummer.. :)
  11:32am listener james from westwood:

did we break from the coltrane tribute to the stream?
  11:33am Domenic:

Thanks Doug!
I'm going to use that on my next submission to whatever press I send my work to!

I love this show
  11:34am ?:

what I'm hearing sure doesn't sound like a Shout for Trane
  11:34am Brian in Uk:

Am I the only one getting The Magnetic Fields?
  11:34am Doug Schulkind:

Yes we did. Geez.
  11:35am jk:

was that Nese Karabocek for a second?
  11:35am dc pat:

yeah, we're back again..
  11:35am listener james from westwood:

ah, the trane's back on the track.
  11:35am Doug Schulkind:

I got bucked off the stream for some weird reason. All should be good (knock knock) now.
  11:35am ?:

. . . and we're back . . . The other stuff sounded cool too, just in a different way!
  11:35am listener james from westwood:

nothing against magnetic fields, but until merritt hits 85, he can wait a day!
  11:36am Carmichael:

I was wondering about the bluegrass salute to 'Trane ...
  11:36am annie:

i hereby decree it is not too early for that glass of wine before i go to my other work.. standing at the counter and waiting on customers..
  11:37am Carmichael:

Uh oh ..
  11:37am ?:

uh oh. dropped again
  11:37am Doug Schulkind:

Crazy but true, I have no way to monitor the audio of the stream during my show. Everything happens with about a 30-second delay.

Shit, just happened again...
  11:37am Listener Bill:

@annie It's 5:00 somewhere.
  11:38am Carmichael:

Blame Verizon, Doug.
  11:38am Doug Schulkind:

No, this is a server issue back at WFMU, methinks...
  11:39am ?:

Just to make sure we're all good, I think you need to play that Gil Scott-Heron track again, b/c I missed it the first time!
  11:39am annie:

bill, i love the way you think...
  11:39am dc pat:

annie: wine in the morning, little breakfast as night.
  11:40am jill:

20 minutes left - still no Trane... I'm just saying i could use some "Spiritual" or "Naima"
  11:42am still b/p:

Server trying to Shiv the Drummer Some, man.
  11:43am Richard from Venezuela:

Greeting Doug and all the listeners.
  11:45am listener james from westwood:

i blame my next-door neighbor. he has been making hooting and gibbering sounds all morning. his brain implant is interfering with the pitt-jc link.
  11:45am listener james from westwood:

heya richard!
  11:48am Richard from Venezuela:

Hi james
  11:51am jill:

My husband tells me it's Ray Charles' birthday today - his legacy isn't overshadowed by Tranes - but the legendary status that Coltrane has received may be due to his short time on earth and the catlogue that he produced...
  11:53am dc pat:

jill, you are indeed correct. Happy B-day Ray.
  11:54am Doug Schulkind:

Sorry to disappoint you JIll and Dave.
  11:55am Brian in UK:

We aint disappointed, boss. We're saved.
  11:55am jill:

no. did i say that i was disappointed? the drummer never disappoints!
  11:56am Brian in UK:

annie, it's 5 o'clock here, I'll cover for you.
  11:56am annie:

woot!! here's to you brian!
  11:58am Alex:

You can get some Trane on the 91.1 main WFMU stream right now, if you didn't get enough here
  11:58am ndbob:

nice soul set here... only song i've heard before is the harold burrage one
  11:59am listener james from westwood:
