Well I'm spinning out of control to Veirs, Allison,Gauthier & Brosseau !

PS - I'm hoping to have Tom Brossaeu playing here in the back room at home ( on the N. Staffs / S. Cheshire borderline ) some time next year - so if anyone in the UK fancies that ...

  Fri. 12/21/07 11:01am Don Pubah:

One of my favorite listening experiences was the Coltrane piece you broadcast on your show. At some point in the last segment I had tears in my eyes. Excellent programming and Thanks!
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:03am k-rex:

I second Don Pubah, that was one of the highlights of the year, musically, for me.

Happy Holidays!

  Fri. 12/21/07 11:09am Doug:

Airing that Coltrane doc was a flat out thrill. I hope like hell I can one day broadcast it again and archive the thing. I'll keep you all posted.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:11am pat:

my favorite for the year is whatever is playing right now. This is bitchin. (Rob Reddy? who he?)
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:13am Doug:

Pat, Rob is a terrific sax player, composer, arranger. "The Book of the Storm" is just one of five or so brilliant records. Check him out:
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:17am pat:

Thanks Doug, love that resonator guitar floating through the piece.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:18am north guinea hills:

oh, and although it wasn't a record release, doug, you airing the coltrane doc was the epiphany my life has needed for years. no hyperbole.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:20am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:24am Wes:

Keleya! Always a favorite. This track grooves heavily.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:28am david herskovits:

Joyous Solstice to you all and all yours.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:35am raissa:

i enjoyed your james brown from all over the world comp. and the coltrane doc blew me away
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:51am Sean Daily:

I wonder if he saw it with his own eyes?
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:55am Danielle Hamilton:

Mavis is a guy?
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:58am Paul Sherratt:

The Mavis song reminds me that Pops Staples once did a session in his stately later years for the BBC's Andy Kershaw - it was put out on cd as an EP if I remember correctly. Nice thing it was too.
  Fri. 12/21/07 11:58am Phil from Philly:

Not so much.
  Sat. 12/22/07 12:17pm Dan Godston:

Thanks again for another fantastic show. I followed that link you put on the playlist, to Amy Allison's site. She & her dad Mose sing a beautiful duet:
  Mon. 12/24/07 2:07pm Paul B:

Thanks for a great year of music, Doug. Fave moments: William Parker / Raining on the Moon and the Max Roach tribute - apart from the music I really enjoyed your interview with him. Would love to have listened to "How long's that Trane been gone" but it went out at 4.00 pm UK time, just about the time of day when one really ought to try and focus on doing some work.

Festive jollity to all at WFMU!
  Mon. 12/24/07 10:07pm Doug:

We are all so fortunate to live in the age of William Parker. (Every generation gets the Parker it deserves?!) I could easily have added his latest record to my favorites of the year list, but I am trying hard not to repeat musicians in an effort to spread the love. Essentially, I could add the annual gems from William Parker, Laura Veirs, Tom Brosseau, Mary Gauthier, Sublime Frequencies and a dozen other entities to every Best Of list. I am so glad you enjoyed the Max Roach program. It was a rather heartbreaking affair, and I would've preferred a different reason to unearth my old interview. But so be it. I don't pray about much, but I do hope and pray that someday I will be able re-air the Coltrane documentary, or at least help things come about so that copies can be made available commercially. I will keep everyone informed about any developments.

Happy HanuKwanzMas
