Listener comments!

  Fri. 2/26/10 9:01am annie:

good snowy morning!
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:04am Parq:

Here in the City, we've gotten our first real snow of the year - of two years, actually, since we didn't have any heavy snow last winter. Going to be fun today and butt-ugly for the next three weeks.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:08am Jeff from St.Paul:

Which City is 'The City'? Isn't that what San Francisco calls it self?
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:10am Jack:

Hi everybody! Good morning! We've gotten 25" of snow (Harriman) so far; the plow just got stuck in my driveway and had to be towed out. What's it doing up there, Annie?
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:15am NS Andy:

Lordy, Lord, Leon- TUNE YOUR GUITAR!
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:16am annie:

jack, we have about two feet all told. it's incredibly beautiful. it gives us all a reason to stop dead in our tracks.. there are many who have no phones or electric. but i do not envy the poor people who got tons of rain and wind.. rumor has it there are many trees down near westchester.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:24am Parq:

Fair enough, Jeff fr/St/P. Annie is upstate NY (for a while longer) and FMU is just across the Hudson from lower Manhattan, so I guess I got a little centric in referring to NYC as the City. How's the weather up your way?
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:24am Joe Steele:

Every city calls itself the city.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:24am Jack:

It IS beautiful! I was out in it earlier; blinding whiteness, and SO quiet. I felt like a kid again...
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:25am Charcutero:

Im about 30 miles north of Philly and my drive to work was awful. Glad to have your show Doug!
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:26am PMD:

Bow wow. Mornin' all.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:27am annie:

i'm getting vicarious thrills and joy from watching the kids walk down to the sledding hill; hearing their laughter in the background. i was even invited to come along and bring the dog; if i see them i may very well join them today.. isa will get such a trip out of that!
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:28am PMD:

We're having blow people over winds. Happy snow to you all! My brother in NH is supposed to have 3-5 inches of rain. whew.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:30am Bradford Eugene LaBonte:

It's just drizzling rain here in California. I'm starting to get why people move out here.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:33am Jeff from St. Paul:

Joe Steele - San Francisco uses "The City" differently though, like its a nickname beyond the local area. they even put it on their NBA team uniforms at one point. Just saying.

Parq - I didn't know NYC was getting so dumped on with Snow. We sorta glaze over those weather reports here because its business as usual for us.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:38am Paul:

Isn't only Manhattan "the city"?
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:43am blacktooth:

this music is going perfectly in sync with the dancing pigeons outside my snowy window in brooklyn.
  Fri. 2/26/10 9:56am J-Mar:

totalmente legal!
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:08am Hugo:

Kinda fitting this set as I'll be in India the whole of next week
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:12am Ian in Asheville, NC:

"Choli Ke Peeche": that's some beefy rhythm thar, boyo.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:19am doug in dc:

Vole marriage? As in the rodents?
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:20am Drummer Some:

Have a brilliant time in the real down under.

@Ian in Ashville
Please don't speak of Uncle in that fashion. (Let him graze in peace.)
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:22am Drummer Some:

@Doug in DC
If only! No, just a bit of typlexsia.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:23am doug in dc:

Voles in love, are there any creatures more pathetic?
Voles in love, never knowing that they've lost the game.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:30am Bad Ronald:

I should know because this vole's in love again!
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:31am Drummer Some:

OK, Hugo how do you pronounce Georg Gräwe's last name?
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:31am Toby:

Howie Rose interview snowed out. Bummer.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:32am annie:

oh, man i was just thinking: more noise on fmu.. and i looked at the playlist.. yup more noise <s> sorry i couldn't resist
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:36am Drummer Some:

Rain called on account of game...

@Annie dear
Punch me right in the noise!
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:38am doug in dc:

@Doug, I saw Georg Grawe some years ago, and his name is pronounced "Gay-erg Grah-va." Now I wish I could remember who he was playing with that night.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:38am doug in dc:

Actually, the last name was Gray-va
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:39am Cecile:

Good morning!
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:41am Hugo:

Not quite sure, the "ä" is rendered in English as "ae". I think the wovel sound of "a" in grass would be roughly it.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:41am Drummer Some:

@D in DC
Thanks! Can I count on you to be my senior German language correspondent?
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:41am Cecile:

Isn't the City also the London financial district?

Annie, speaking of Isa, we've been tuning into the UK herding dog trials that they run on the RFD network. So gorgeous and lo-budget - when a dog runs out of sight, there's only one camera, so it runs out of sight! Last night was Wales. Just lovely.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:43am Drummer Some:

You can be my dipthong guy and Doug in DC can be my umlaut guy.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:44am doug in dc:

I'll help if I can. Thanks to Transparent Productions website, I can now confirm that the show was a lot farther back than I recalled, November 1998 to be exact. Georg Graewe/Frank Gratkowski/Kent Kessler/Hamid Drake. That was a good one, I still remember it.
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:45am annie:

drumsome, i love you, no matter what!
cecile: around here, where we have alot of sheep, it is a great thing to watch these dogowners handle the animals with just a whistle and a click! incredible..
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:47am Cecile:

I know! Unbelievable how tuned in they are to their owners.

Also, it's so fun to watch a shepherd's crook actually being used...
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:49am annie:

and i think isa would be good at it, but it takes years to train these dogs. she would just be starting to be trained at this age yet kept faaar away from the sheep until she was ready. as it is she loves to chase any four-legged creature
  Fri. 2/26/10 10:56am Cecile:

Hey, even a little bit of training is fun.
There's also things like lure-coursing, and agility to get some training in and exercise, but without the time committment herding requires..

I'm so glad you have her, it sounds like she's brought a lot of fun into your life.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:02am annie:

she's a treasure. just now starting to listen to me, with her stubborn nature, she's a handful. i figure she'll be up to par for obedience in 6 months.. i think she'll be happy in the woods of maine.. being here in the village for the last couple months, she misses her running and jumping and frolicking
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:05am north guinea hills:

W00t!!!, didn't have to get to work until 11! I love snow!
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:08am Chris - Bristol:

The English affectionately refer to us Welsh as "sheep shaggers" - although I must admit that I never became that bored or lonely when I was living in Wales.

Sound like you might have been watching a version of "One man and his dog"?
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:13am jk:

greetings from Boston where it's sunny and warm this morning
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:13am mike cooper:

All over the world = everyone talks of the weather - spriing like day herein Rome folks - sorry = sunny - windy - even warmer. :-))
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:15am Drummer Some:

Everyone talks about the weather and no one does a dammed thing about it! (My personal pet peeve is people who complain about the weather--aside from citizens of New Orleans--of course.)
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:18am trs:

We could go out and try to deke out all those snowflakes. Make it 10 feet without getting hit by one. No umbrellas or anything.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:20am north guinea hills:

I love the weather no matter how brutal or fair, as long as it leaves my life to spare.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:21am mike cooper:

Yes -we should all boycott the weather that wiill teach em.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:22am BSI:

WHOA... somehow I missed the bolly set, with the king of bhangra AS Kang... praise heck for archives....
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:23am Bad Ronald:

No complaints from Snowdom and Gomorrah.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:24am annie:

my favorite photos of this winter's snow adventures are the ones from cities where people set furniture and chairs out to save their spots after they've been shoveled..
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:27am PMD:

just had to stop for a moment and say I love Dolly.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:28am PMD:

Annie, I think the whole chair thing is funny. Thing is, I think it's usually respected. I guess though if anyone didn't, their car would be keyed.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:28am Bob:

One of the great things about taking a "snow day" and staying home is getting to listen to your show in real time.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:29am Elias:

I just went outside to shovel, and one of the neighbors had beat me to it! Good ol' New York.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:29am BSI:

Annie: that was all the rage down here during our blizzard (DC) - Some folks were collecting all that furniture & selling it via Craigslist. Viva Capitalism!
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:30am north guinea hills:

@annie, i always found that so trashy. I mean, as long as you don't live in a touristy or commercial district, don't you think that whomever you think might park in your spot probably had to dig their car out as well?
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:30am annie:

what a funny culture we are
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:31am annie:

drummer, is this iris's latest cd??
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:32am Cecile:

Chris, I grew up in a town with a engineering college. Until the 80s, the slogan used to be "Michigan Tech - where men are men, women are scare and sheep are nervous."

The show I was watching was called "Come Bye", which seems to deal with the various national trials. We saw part of Scotland, now Wales. It's on the UK Horse and Country channel, re-run on the US RFD
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:32am Andrew from Toronto:

Awesome set starting with Kilbogie through Iris DeMent. Doug, you hooked me on the Bonny Lass record when you posted it on your blog...then to hear Townes, Dolly and Iris. An excellent soundtrack on a snowy day in Toronto.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:35am doug in dc:

It's silly, over 90% of the parking spaces are clear on my block, and people are still using the chairs. I can't begrudge my neighbor, though, he takes care of his invalid dad and also shoveled a lion's share of the sidewalk.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:36am annie:

i was wondering if her marriage to greg brown is still working for her. and if this songs is any indication, well.... i love her gospel songs..especially the one she recorded of her mother singing.
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:41am Drummer Some:

@Andrew in Toronto
Glad you liked that sequence. The Bonny Lass record is to die for. Thanks for noticing it on the blog!
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:46am Parq:

Rejoining the show at the tail end, took my time on way to work taking pictures. Have to leave my desk again. Vole you all wait for me?
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:49am Mark:

Doug - Wonderful selections as always, thank you sir!
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:49am monica:

doug, this nina track is gorge....
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:52am Drummer Some:

My pleasure!

I love how bad Nina's French accent is and how much it doesn't matter. This ain't Nat Cole singing in Spanish...
  Fri. 2/26/10 11:56am ?:

L'Unité des Ouvriers! Alors!
