Good morning!
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:28am Smokin'J:

Greetings earthlings! Happy B'Day!
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:31am Paul:

Thank you.
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:32am Red:

Just wondering if any women ever tune in
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:35am Smokin'J:

You're welcome Paul! I'm tipping a beer in your honor as we speak:)
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:37am Paul:

Then I am truly honored.
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:50am Red:

"STICK WITH ME" also recorded by the Paley Brothers on their classic album that almost no one heard
  Sat. 2/23/08 10:51am Joe:

So what?
  Sat. 2/23/08 11:03am Red:

Thats what
  Sat. 2/23/08 11:38am Parq:

Many happy returns, Paul. I'm glued to this 'view with Nordine, one of my cultural heroes for decades.
  Sat. 2/23/08 11:39am Smokin'J:

Ken Nordine is a god!
  Sat. 2/23/08 11:56am Paul:

Thanks, Parq. I hope I last as long as Ken has (and will).
  Sat. 2/23/08 12:16pm Paul:

I wish I had $75 to pledge. I would love to have the country compilation or the cherry blossom clinic CD.
  Sat. 2/23/08 12:17pm ?:

I have that Daryll-Ann track on MP3. Thing is, I have absolutely no idea where I got it. It may even have come free with a new 'puter way back when.
  Sat. 2/23/08 12:20pm Joe:

Paul - get a job.
  Sat. 2/23/08 12:33pm Paul:

Workin' on it, Joe.
  Sat. 2/23/08 12:42pm Peter K.:

Great show as always, and great Ken Nordine interview.

BUT ...

Teo Macero DID NOT produce "Kind of Blue"; I believe a guy named Irving Townsend did. I don't think Macero had joined Columbia yet when that album was made.

Also, if anyone cares, the Thelonious Monk track you played was actually WRITTEN by Macero. It's one of the very, very few pieces Monk ever recorded that wasn't either a standard or a Monk original. And I don't think Monk was particularly happy about recording it.

And doesn't Laura Cantrell spell her last named with two L's?

But anyway, like I said, great show.
  Sat. 2/23/08 1:01pm DeemerDave:

"The Three Stooges Meet the Beatles" is classic Billy West (Stimpy of Ren and Stimpy, Fry of Futurama). The bit was played often on WBCN's Charles Laquadera morning show in Boston. Where did you get it? Great memories.
  Sun. 2/24/08 8:23am Peter:

"Pills" is interesting on several levels... not a standard Bo Diddley template song, as the feel is more R & B ballad (?) and the dominant guitar is in standard tuning (there may be two, with Bo in a chord tuning mixed back...).

Plus the New York Dolls angle. I can't remember what they called this thing on their album, but it's the same song lyrically, IMO.
  Mon. 2/25/08 9:01pm Peter:

Second listen. Neat show.

Anybody else hear similarities to the 5 Royales in the Lamplighters' "You Hear?"

Elsewhere (!), Brad Paisley songwriting chops in the McReynolds' "Lovin' Machine"?
