  9:15am Doug Schulkind:

Elevating the conversation as ever, Glenn!
  9:25am glenn:

i love marijuana. no ambiguity there.
  9:28am Brian in UK:

And marijuana loves you too, glenn.
Repeat this set at half hourly intervals, I presume Dr. Schulkind.
  9:28am listener james from westwood:

glenn, don't forget those pinkerton shitheels! (i.e., don't forget to feed 'em to wu's pigs)
  9:30am A Phlebotomist Writes:

We have found the vein, just need to draw sufficient claret for the lab.
  9:32am Brian in UK:

Now we are hitting some slippery bass notes a la Keith Hudson's 'Brand'.
  9:32am Doug Schulkind:

Oh no, Brian in UK, the REAL potsmokers are coming up in the next set. The next group of gentlemen could smoke Linval and friends under the table!

Yahoo! The Phleb is here. Don't give me a subdural hematoma like last time!
  9:33am listener james from westwood:

phleb, you're so vein, you probably think this sang is about you.
  9:33am A Phlebotomist Writes:

You clot, Schulkind.
  9:33am glenn:

i did in fact forget the pinkerton shitheels.
  9:36am Andy S.:

Hayseed humor hijinks hittin' the spot....
  9:59am listener james from westwood:

Listener james, I was pondering on just the same thought ( I think ! )
  10:05am Domenic:

Happy holidays Doug.....

Are you doing that live Grounds Hog Day in Puerto Rico fund raiser thing this year?
  10:06am Brian in UK:

I bought Miles' 'Get Up with It' after hearing it on last months DO.
Paul, have you tried Dunkerton's Perry,. Delicious.
  10:07am Doug Schulkind:

  10:18am jk:

I pack with abandon, 1 pair of clothes and a bunch of records
  10:18am ndbob:

wow - a Jerry Engber cover
  10:22am Brian in UK:

Was it this year that Joe Arroyo passed on?
  10:24am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, he died in July.
  10:24am Paul Sherratt:

I've made a note of the Dunkerton beverage. Scarlett Wines will be just across the road from me during the holiday period ...
  10:26am Brian in UK:

Dangerous, Paul. Long drive?
  10:27am dc pat:

ooh. packing, forgot about that...heading to Pennsyltucky tomorrow morn. Johnstown to be eggsakt.
  10:31am holland oats:

hey drummersome thnx for adding the lijadus sisters' 'danger' to the stream, love that track! and no i don't work for the knitting factory!
  10:32am holland oats:

  10:34am Doug Schulkind:

Great minds make mix tapes alike, Holland Oats. I just added that to the stream recently. SO good.
  10:35am Paul Sherratt:

Long drive, (308 miles) by UK standards, Brian - I've just packed the back-up ipod !
Gosh this is gorgeous ...
  10:35am earwax:

Nice fat saxophone on the Budd Johnson track
  10:36am Doug Schulkind:

Thanks for converting that to MILES, Paul, for our non-UK commenters.
  10:36am Alex in Illinois:

I downloaded that Soundway collection last week. Excellent. I've become additcted to Soundway. The problem with having long titles for Albums is that my iPod does not show the full names in the listing.
  10:36am holland oats:

yeah but now i have to hunt down the vinyl reish
  10:36am trrs:

Friday morning sex track.
  10:38am Doug Schulkind:

True, Alex. Truer, trrs.
  10:41am jill:

But it's Chanukah, not Rosh...Need some dreidle jazz
  10:41am Paul Sherratt:

For the continental music lovers, looking and listening in, it's just shy of 500 kilometres.
  10:42am ndbob:

following this with the Electric Prunes version Doug?
  10:43am Paul Sherratt:

Btw, apparently jazz is the most dangerous music to drive to - I don't know where that came from ...
  10:43am Alex in Illinois:

Hey listener James? You like Woodpecker or Woodchuck? How about Magner's or Strongbow?
  10:46am Doug Schulkind:

For a Hanukkah special, check out most show from last Tuesday evening:
  10:50am Jeff G:

Gonna wager that's the first time "Aveenu Malkenu" has segued into "Plumbing Problem."
Just a guess, though.
  10:52am Brian in UK:

Paul, you get there quicker driving in kilometers as it is only 5/8ths of a mile.
  10:53am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, it is odd to hear David Shire's music played in a profane context {smirk}.
  10:53am glenn:

isn't there a bit in a bill bryson book where he's parodying two brits talking about the best way to get somewhere?
  10:54am Brian in UK:

Alex in Illinois, your microbrewers are doing such a wonderful job just now, there must be decent cider & perry makers as well.
  10:56am Brian in UK:

glenn do you remember the Monty Python sketch with Mr Hilter & Ron Rippentrop discussing B roads..
  10:57am glenn:

also, dear brits, if i was to start at the ontario / quebec border, it would take 27 hrs of driving at 100 k/hr to get to the ontario / manitoba border.
  10:59am Brian in UK:

Are we there yet?
  11:00am Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of Jeff G (see comment @ 10:50), be sure to tune in to Give the Drummer Radio on Monday at noon (ET) for the next D:O RADIO ( from Destination Out.

In fact, go right now to Destination Out ( for an absolutely stunning post.
  11:01am glenn:
  11:06am ndbob:

we would love to hear it Doug!
  11:07am Alex in Illinois:

The strange thing about hard cider in the US is that the market does not seem to be large enough for the professional microbrewerries to make it, unless Woodchuck and Woodpecker could be considered microbreweries. THe only bars that seem to serve hard cider are the Irish or Celtic or British-themed pubs, and they all have Magner's with some of them having Wodchuck or Strongbow. For micro-brewed cider, you then have the home-brewed that people litteraly create at home and share with their friends, which can range form being excellent to terrible.
At least that is my experience.
  11:09am listener james from westwood:

@Alex: My experience with ciders is, alas, limited to Woodpecker and Woodchuck. Always willing to be educated about new ones, though; thanks for the new names!
  11:09am glenn:

well, magner's is better than strongbow, but that's not saying much, in my opinion.
  11:11am Jeff G:

You'll rescind that twitter t.y. soon enough.
  11:12am glenn:

doug quattlebaum's a household name.
  11:13am Jeff G:

and Doug Household is a quattlebaum name.
  11:13am Brian in UK:

Alex, I can appreciate that. The real thing, scumpy, can be an aquired taste, best with a lemonade top. Magners have reinvented cider in a sharp marketing move by selling it with lots of ice. Tastes crap but it sells. The small producers based mainly in Somerset & Herefordshire are the best.
  11:13am Doug Schulkind:

I'm moving to your house, Glenn.

Jeff, I feel like an ignoramus. What is a "t.y."?
  11:14am Jeff G:

(Sorry. Live radio makes me giddy.)
  11:15am Jeff G:

Doug, it often precedes "you're welcome." Or more often these days, "No problem."

I recent had someone text me TWSS and had to look it up. Urban Dictionary is all that stands between me and a total communication blackout with anyone under 30.
  11:16am Paul Sherratt:

>> it would take 27 hrs of driving at 100 k/hr to get to the ontario / manitoba border.
Now that really depends on which route you take ...
  11:18am Doug Schulkind:


(I think I'm going tojust crawl back under my rock.)
  11:18am Brian in UK:

He is related to Lyman Frank Baum, who wrote his original story about Australia. Inspiring Monty Pythons, 'this here's a quattle emblem of our land. you can put it in a bottle or hold it in your hand.'
  11:19am ndbob:

about an hour and a half to Manitoba from here - couple more to the Ontario border
  11:20am david:

the show sounds better from home than it does at work.
  11:20am Alex in Illinois:

Magner's vs. Strongbow? I find that Magner's is the sweeter of the two, so I drink them both but in different situations. Strongbow with SHepherd's Pie, but Magner's with Fish & Chips.
Scumpy? I just Googled it. I think you mean "Scrumpy.". BUt I have never heard of it. I don't think we get that west of the Western Ocean. I'll have to try it next time I am on your side, or ask my boss to bring some with him the next time he is in the States.
  11:22am Doug Schulkind:

Welcome home, David!
  11:22am Brian in UK:

Alex, I am getting a new keyboard for Xmas, honest. It does not always travel well.
  11:28am Brian in UK:

That yellow stuff is the devils work, Doug.
  11:30am trrs:

Best way to wrap up last hrs at work before a much needed winter break was this show.
Thanks !
  11:33am Doug Schulkind:

I love how "personal manager baby" is about two syllables as sung by Mr. King.
  11:42am Jeff G:

In all seriousness: when Muddy sez he "found a birdnest on the ground" -- that's...a wallet? (A la "When the Eagle Flies"?)

Urban Dictionary is no help here.
  11:44am Brian in UK:

I think everything is political in Nigeria.
  11:46am Doug Schulkind:

Mind your own birdnest, Jeff.
  11:52am holland oats:

that lijadus thing was just a tease wasn't it
  11:54am Doug Schulkind:

Cued up NEXT, Holland!
  11:56am holland oats:

  11:56am Doug Schulkind:

Lijadu Sisters:
  11:58am holland oats:

ha! i grabbed danger off there yesterday!
  11:59am Paul Sherratt:

Well, thanks for the ride, Sonic Santa !
  11:59am ndbob:

excellent show as always Doug!
  11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Comb & Razor is so amazing.

Thanks, ndbob, excellent listening!
  12:00pm holland oats:

cashing in, a fundraising staple if i eva hoid one
  12:00pm glenn:

hey, happy non denominational winter season break thingy to all a youse.
  12:00pm Brian in UK:

Thanks for all your hard work this year Doug. Have a great time. Looking forward to DO on Monday.
Safe journey Paul & anyone travelling this holiday. Watch out for the B318125934604667.
  12:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Have a deeply groovy holiday time, everybody! I could not / would not do this show without you.

Let's reconvene here on Tuesday evening (6pm, ET) and compare presents.
  12:03pm listener james from westwood:

loved the sounds, dug the comments, and look at that: first of three projects is nearly done. that's what good music can do for a body. safe travels and peace to all this weekend!
  12:09pm Paul Sherratt:

Bloody hell !
I've become a follower !!
Lawdy Miss Clawdy !!!
  12:11pm Doug Schulkind:

You will always be a leader in my book, Paul. Lead me to water and I shall lap it up.
  12:12pm Paul Sherratt:

Thanks for the wishes Brian, I'll think about your tips while driving through Somerset, later ..
