I'm so sorry I'm going to miss the documentary. My boss boss is here today and will be in meetings all day. Get them to put it out!!! Hope you feel better.
  Fri. 10/26/07 9:28am Parq:

Those Hawaiian tracks have me sitting here trying to remember the name of that mid-80s air staffer who had lived in Hawaii for a time and specialized in trad Hawaiian music. She had long dark hair and glasses, and was on Saturday afternoons -- occupying, I think, the slot on which Rex currently is seated. Anyone?
  Fri. 10/26/07 9:32am HotRod:

Mmm...mmm...mmm mmm..mmmm...
  Fri. 10/26/07 9:51am Dedalus:

Tuning in for the first time from Dublin, Ireland. Loving the show in work... will listen in again for sure. Warm regards. D.
  Fri. 10/26/07 9:52am Parq:

Doug, what kind of cap did they market to Mexican kids as a "Pancho Lopez hat"? Hey Dedalus, say hi to all at Road Records for me.
  Fri. 10/26/07 9:53am Doug:

Hey Hey Dedalus!
Glad you're here. Grab an oar and start rowing.

  Fri. 10/26/07 9:54am Doug:

Parq, making it even stranger, those "Pancho Lopez" dudes were Brazilian.
  Fri. 10/26/07 10:09am Brandon:

yup, starting Friday off with some shrooms.
  Fri. 10/26/07 10:24am Bad Ronald:

Mmmmmm, shrooms!
  Fri. 10/26/07 10:46am frank:

tuning in from the lowcountry, Charleston, SC. Rainy day, here, but not dreaming it away, unfortunately....
  Fri. 10/26/07 10:55am Joe:

Doug, your show is fantastic. I'm a recent convert drawn in by the Trane doc, but I love the breadth of your playlists. Thanks from Chicago!
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:06am Josh:

Hi Doug, thanks for all the great music over the years. Do you know of a site that has more information on the Coltrane documentary?
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:09am Doug:

Josh, the pleasure's mine! Your best bet for more info on the documentary is which is the site run by the doc's producer, Steve Rowland.
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:11am Rob:

I happen to have an office hour during this Coltrane documentary and I have loved it these past weeks. I recently read the book "The House that Trane Built" on the Impulse Records story so this is a great companion to that.

Gratitude and greetings from the Waterford/Kilkenny border country. You broadcast the medicine of light.
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:24am seanh:

Just getting deep into jazz recently, so this documentary is absolutely perfect. Absolutely brilliant, thanks doug.

Picked up Love Supreme on vinyl a couple weeks ago, along with a couple Sun Ra records, but otherwise just barely dipped my toes into the jazz pool with some downloaded albums.
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:31am Wes:

A Love Supreme is the Coltrane album I first bought, as well. Captain Beefheart turned me on to his work. This documentary is excellent, I've really enjoyed it as I've caught pieces here and there. Please publish the entire thing, producer man!
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:33am Sun Ra:

"weeeelllll, I was working on my space things, as usual."
  Fri. 10/26/07 11:37am Doug:

With my newborn daughter in my arms, I danced in the hospital to A Love Supreme. OK, gotta go. I'm starting to tear up again...
  Fri. 10/26/07 12:03pm north guinea hills:

coltrane's techniques and abstractions became fractals within themselves until they bifurcated and transcended all time space w/ pure love and joy
  Fri. 10/26/07 12:10pm Brian Sanders:

Congratulations, Steve Rowland. You can hear the care & love that has gone into this doc. Just to hear all those voices; it deserves a wider audience. So...... Power to you Doug for letting us hear it.
  Thu. 5/14/09 3:44pm Lani:

How can I get a recording of Little Lani Jo? Just want to hear it, not buy it.
  Thu. 5/14/09 4:46pm Drummer Some:

You can hear that tune two ways:

(1) Click on "hear" below "Kane's Blues," above. The song we be the third one that comes up.

(2) Go here: and download the album. The song appears on that record.
