@TerrInDE: The full moon on Oct 1 is the Harvest Moon (named after a Neil Young album). The one on Halloween will be the Hunter's moon. But it's also correctly referred to as a "blue moon", since its the second full moon in a single month.

@Terr there is a genetic mutation that prevents HIV. Some researchers have hypothesized that bubonic plague was the culprit, but that's unlikely, because it was caused by a bacterial infection, not a virus

Did Steve Gunn and Jack Rose ever perform together? They could have billed themselves as Gunn&Rose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am David (in London):

Coela. No apology needed. Just glad you liked it.

That Gunn-Truscinski was super nice.
  11:17am Eric from Lake Hiawatha:

Agree the Gunn-T was compelling. Thanks

David, for what it's worth i did a version of an Anne Briggs song as well, a few years ago (wishing well)... but it's not great and won't tell you how to find it!

I'm digging this. Joe, what's the scoop with Coreyah?
Avatar 11:25am Joe McG:

They're traditional Korean musicians who get a bit untraditional. Young folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am YETI BOB:

Self-described "psychedelic Korean folk music". This is great!
Avatar 11:26am dougseidel:

i love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am tim from champaign (now washington):

Cool! I was wondering if it was from Korea based on the name.
  11:27am David in London:

Really liking this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am YETI BOB:

I think they are based in NYC. sori.nyc... - "The group’s unique freewheeling, polystylistic vision combines a variety of influences, including Anglo-American rock, Balkan gypsy, and genres from South America and Africa."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am YETI BOB:

thanks Joe, this is why I keep listening and pledging to WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am Rob:

You're welcome Joe and yes! Actually they are based in South Korea Yeti Bob but they will be touring North America next year too - more at sori.nyc... . They explain the name on that page: "The name Coreyah is a Sino-Korean homonym that refers to the inheritance of the past and also in Korean means "whale"—the group's totem animal and good luck charm."

Speaking of Korean, anyone hip to Luna Lee YouTube. check out her version of Voodoo Chile. She plays a Gaguin a Korean plucked table harp which allows string bends

Yes in fact YB Sori NYC is Shawn Choi's company when he's not working his day job at Flushing Town Hall! Shawn is the young New Yorker responsible for bringing some interesting indie-folk-experimental bands from S. Korea to North America. Last thing: Flushing Town Hall is re-streaming a past concert by Coreyah tomorrow night: www.flushingtownhall.org...

That Silvia Tarozzi was amazing!

Love this tango!

@Mr. Pumpy: This is one amazing album, this Silvia Tarozzi. It's hard to choose what to play for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am YETI BOB:

@Rob: I've been listening to your show for years - big part of my Saturday. I'm not usually on the comments board on the weekend but it's great to see you pop up here.

@Terr: I'll check that out! I love that instrument.

Loads of great tango 78s on YouTube.

Indecipherable vox. Incredibly beautiful song.

And now the Baird Sisters? What have I done to deserve this? Did I die and go to heaven?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Krys O.:

My late Polish dad, who was born almost 100 years ago, loved to play tangos on the harmonica. Seems that the style was huge in interwar Poland: culture.pl...
Avatar 11:42am Joe McG:

@Krys: Wow, do you have any recordings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Rob:

Aw thanks Yeti Bob and I agree everyone, lovely stuff - and Joe's segue's are magical! And thanks Krys O for your story and the article - very interesting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am Krys O.:

@Joe: I only have the tapes that my father recorded in the mid-80s. Two of them were digitized and they're on my SoundCloud: Paul O the DJ and Harmonica Demo. soundcloud.com...

Cheers, Rob! I've mentioned elsewhere that family gatherings included our Ukrainian family friend on guitar, my dad on harmonica and spoons, and our cousin on accordion. Lots of exotic gypsy melodies were played.
  11:49am David in London:

Mr Pumpy! Long time, mate.
  11:52am Fab T:

Hi, does anybody know the track Joe used as background track between One Fine Morning & Standing with You? It's the one with just two chords and a kick and some hi hat as a beat. It's so great, I look forward to it every Monday! Sound Hog doesn't recognize it unfortunately... :-( I would appreciate if someone knew it. Many thanks.

There's a Maxwell St scene in Blues Brothers movie. And a few real documentaries about it too.
