Listener comments!

1st comment... ers are lame! :p
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:28am Marko:

Cool tribal sounds.... Reminds me of nights at college ('79) sitting around the shortwave radio listening to African stations sign on in the morning on the 60 meter band. (It was morning there, but just after midnight sure beat studying!)
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:31am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Tis some good stuff that I don't expose myself to enough.
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:35am Speedy:

Great music
Me and my daughter listening
Greetings from speedy and olga (germany)
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:42am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Guten tag!
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:55am Parq:

That Winston Jones was great, dissonant enough to be interesting, yet oddly soothing. I could have listened to that cycle through for an hour,
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:57am Wes:

I wanted to comment on the same tune, Parq..whatever "it" is, Winston has it.
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:00am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

My ears were having aural sex with Al-Khartoum Bulafoda. This show is a good listen for a Friday morning.
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:01am Parq:

Yeah, yeah Chance, you're right, that one was great too.
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:04am Hugo:

That Abayudaya track was truly remarkable, somehow reminiscent of the collaboration between the Taiwanese choir and David Darling which you've played before. Ola Belle Reed is remarkable, too, though, shall we say, in another "world".
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:06am Nick:

now this is what i'm talkin' about... old-timey.
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:12am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

Ugandian Jews are awesome-
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:12am Doug:

Hello blessed listenerfolk. (Especially you, Olga!) Speaking of daughters, my cherub Lincoln and I were just discussing when to do another on-air collaboration. Probably in February. Give the Daughter Some!

Here's my Favorites of '07 list:
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:12am Wes:

I was blessed to be able to see Johnny Cash perform live, although I was too young to fully appreciate what I was seeing. His son opened for him, some kind of weird (not the good kind) dark make-up depressing goth stuff...
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:14am jacob:

fuck yeah! TVZ!!
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:25am Matt:

Thanks for the Kim Doo Soo. I love it when you end a set of singer-songwriter type stuff with a non english speaker.
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:30am jt:

Jersey's own Barry Mitterhoff has played mandolin with Hazel's live band for years. The NYC area's folk/country heritage is rich, biatch!
  Fri. 12/7/07 10:41am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

The fact that Johnny Cash would let his son express himself in a seemingly radically different manner is gnarly.
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:09am Eerowen:

Nice move w/ the Aktuala, Doug. Check out my blog, grown so ugly, for more of their stuff:
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:14am Chance From That Third World Country, Maine:

I'm partial to jejunum.
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:16am Hey Eerowen:

Your blog is precisly where I got La Terra from! I love Grown So Ugly. I visit it everyday. Many, many wonderful tracks I've played on the show have come from your efforts. So I THANK YOU con gusto!
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:20am krex:

Doug mentioned the 'miracle' of recorded sound before. It's so true. Thanks Doug! and thanks to the PR All-Starts. w00t!
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:24am Eerowen:

My pleasure, Doug, and many thanks right back at ya for introducing ME to so much good stuff. btw, you actually know me by my real name -- we and our wives took a birth class together back in 2000. ;)

Stay tuned on gsu -- ejg and I will be posting some updates soon.

OH! Also... Nice to hear a Malvina Reynolds track that ISN'T "Little Boxes" (not that there's anything wrong with that...). So, you know, thanks for that, too.
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:24am N'Lo:

Gracias! you are making me pine for my dancing nights at El Vasilon & the Lousiana Bar & Grill to Mo'Guajiro!
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:28am Parq:

Doug, I will be glad to hear your charming kinder ("Dad, why do they call it Abayaduya?") any time you care to bring her along.
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:31am Marko:


Just checked out your blog.... very interesting and informative! I was wondering if you (or anyone else here) could recommend a guitarist whose work would be similar in style to Steve Tibbetts on his "Yr" album (one of my all-time faves).
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:41am Sur:

Oh, Doug, thank you for getting the bebop out of your system! I had not listened to your show, sadly, for several weeks, because that sort of jazz is just...not my thing. SO happy now that it's back to world-wide explorations in aural beauty! Y que viva Cuba!
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:55am Sean Daily:

Probably the last comment! Woo hoo!
  Fri. 12/7/07 11:59am Andrew in Toronto:

Thanks for playing soul and bebop and Cuban and and and....
  Fri. 12/7/07 12:05pm Doug:

Sur, the bebop will come and go, just like other waves in the ocean. We all must swallow a little saltwater now and then. Glad you were swimming along today!
