no. an amish drive by shooting.
  8:05pm JakeGould:

@glenn: That is one stupid joke. I respect you but I am ashamed of you.
  8:06pm JakeGould:

@Becky: I caught a variant of the NYC/NJ flu in the past few days. One day of dellusionally not thinking I’m sick. One day of really being sick. And then today, finally over the hump.
Avatar 8:06pm glenn:

it's a cross i'll have to bear.
  8:07pm JakeGould:

@glenn: Leave the bears out of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Becky:

@Jake At least six DJs have been felled in the past week alone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm sweeks:

I noticed a lot of the DJs were sick after the marathon--I figured it was some bad food sitting out too long in the studio or something.
Avatar 8:08pm glenn:

i don't have to beat the bear, jake. i just have to beat you.
  8:09pm JakeGould:

@Becky: I know! I was bragging to Gaylord Fields on Sunday’s playlist that I volunteered for the marathon twice, was surrounded by many of the DJs who are now ill and I was fine… Maybe schadenfreude caught up with me and gave me a whack of the flu.
  8:09pm JakeGould:

@glenn: Okay, no need to be physical. I respect you I said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm dale:

love the gunfighter ballad genre.

Do whatever is necessary to protect your voice, Becky. It sounds like honey!
  8:14pm JakeGould:

FunFact™: I wanted to pet and play with Pat Byrne’s dog JubJub, but JubJub was too distracted… Smelling everything in the station because there are so many things to smell!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm ericd:

Hello Becky! Just tuned in via the internet. I'm listening from Satna Fe tonight.
Avatar 8:15pm glenn:

honey poured on sandpaper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Becky:

@ericd Hey there! Hope Santa Fe is great - have a margarita for me!
  8:16pm P-90:

Howdy, HTRG and all the Beckaroos at the Radio Ranch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm ericd:

@Becky Will do!!
  8:20pm JakeGould:

So is Werly short for anything?
Avatar 8:20pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Becky:

@Jake Werley. Not much of an abbreviation.
  8:21pm JakeGould:

“Just call me Werl.”
“Simply Werl.”

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Becky:

I don't understand this song.
  8:25pm JakeGould:

Well, hey… Wilf is short for Wilfred.

Also, this is the most non-seductive pitch to get on the air from someone named Wilf I have ever heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ericd:

HA! It's the nicest threat.
  8:27pm Wilf !:

also check out YT for Wilf's "There's a Love Knot in My Lariat"

“Wild and Werl: Together At Last”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm ericd:

Is the Tennessee Three the backing band in Don't Knock..?
Avatar 8:36pm glenn:

wilf carter was canadian. we're subtle folk.
  8:38pm JakeGould:

Bob Gibson sounds like Phil Ochs.
Avatar 8:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Will the Wilf Survive. Where there's a Wilf there's a way. Wilf/milf joke of choice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm ericd:

Loving this Jim Shelby version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Becky:

@ericd I would guess not, as it was the very last country single cut for Sun, but I can't swear to that.
Avatar 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - so much Blues in Hank Sr. - just wondering what would've happened had he made it just a little longer for Rock'n'Roll to happen. The Jim Shelby shows how short the distance was.
Avatar 8:48pm glenn:

bob gibson also holds the single sesson e.r.a. record, if memory serves.
Avatar 8:48pm glenn:

  8:49pm JakeGould:

Donnie Owens is really doing a decent job with this cover.
Avatar 8:50pm Mailman Tom:

Has anyone seen the new bio-pic about Hank Williams? It's titled, I've Seen the Light.
Avatar 8:51pm glenn:

i'm sure everybody knows that hoyt axton's mom wrote heartbreak hotel.
Avatar 8:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the distance from Country to Folk (/'Protest') - before LBJ signed the Civil Rights Bill & the South was lost to the Left...
Avatar 8:58pm glenn:

welp, google has no info on johnny lawton.
Avatar 8:59pm glenn:

although uriah heep's singer was john lawton.
Avatar 9:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always amazing & fun.

RE: “You don't have to shoot me to get me off the radio” in "Hey Hey Mr. DJ":
Apparently Wilf Carter was singing about the reputation he'd made with radio deejays who were now reluctant to invite him back on the air for being a guest who'd never finish plugging away, or know when to hush up, or know when it was time to mosey on down the road: “You've often heard the story of when I'm on a jockey's show,
of how they've gotta shoot me to get me off the radio.” (Like over-texting FMU innate commenters who ought get kabonged.)
