  Fri. 3/26/10 9:40am Drummer Some:

I felt we could all use a little Abid David just now.
  Fri. 3/26/10 9:41am Lisa:

Today is Molly and McGee the Owl Day, as declared by the city council of San Marcus, CA, where the pair nest and hunt.

To celebrate, I'm going to eat whole rabbits and birds!

Chocolate ones.

Owl cam here:
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:04am dc pat:

that's one sleepy owl
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:04am north guinea hills:

Just saw Molly feed the owlets tearing apart a carcass.

oh, Jews of Uganda, the Abayudaya:

Interesting story.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:05am Cecile:

Gary Lucas and Dean Bowman do a great version of Hinay Ma T`ov on their latest record, "Beat the Devil"
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:06am yayson:

speaking of tearing things apart, this is what i was watching when hank came on. very appropriate! two pit bulls tear into a cop car in Tennessee.

i don't know if it was on the border, tho
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:06am Cecile:

Also, Doug, could you at some point play that great version of Red Top by Anthony Braxton and Muhal Richard Abrams? Not today, just sometime?
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:08am Drummer Some:

It would be my esteemed pleasure, Cecile.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:08am ∂avid:

Hank always feels good on a friday....
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:10am Cecile:

thank you, Doug!

david, you are so right.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:11am chris:

this stuff is PRICELESS!
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:12am dc pat:

I concur on Hank....and I NEVER use the word "concur"
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:15am north guinea hills:

I suddenly want southern buttermilk biscuits, like the kind I used to eat in Florigia growing up.....
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:15am mko:

truly, this brightening my morning beyond all expectations.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:19am chris:

REAL country!! Good catch Doug! ...and thanks
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:25am J-Mar:

You know the awesome thing about Hank Williams is that he sounds great no matter whether you're happy or lonesome and blue.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:27am Cecile:

Country music and buttery-soft, low gluten Southern baked goods. mmmmmmmmm. This is a great nation, fellow listeners.

J-Mar, so very true.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:27am chris:

amen J-mar. Reminds me of being a kid and spending my summers in rural Minnesota, listening to the local broadcasts late late at night and feeling safe and secure in the music
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:27am chris:

  Fri. 3/26/10 10:28am J-Mar:

One of the finest writers I've ever had the privilege of working with had the following question taped to his computer:

"Can you say it as plain as Hank Williams?"

I think about that sometimes when I'm trying to crank out a piece of writing for my job.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:29am MD:

THANK HANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:36am seang:

@ J-Mar --was that Dave Hickey?
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:46am J-Mar:

@seang: do you mean did Dave Hickey say that, or did I work with Dave Hickey (or both)? It makes perfect sense if Dave Hickey was the one who said it first, but I never have had the privilege of working with him. The person in question is Jim Ridley, who for years was the film critic for the alt-weekly in Nashville, and now is the editor. I still maintain he is one of the best critics and writers I've ever read anywhere.
  Fri. 3/26/10 10:52am seang:

Oh, I thought maybe you worked with him. He writes about Hank in the New Literary History of America:
He also wrote the lyrics to "The Ballad of Billy and Oscar"-incredible lyrics--Jim Dickinson does a cover of it on the album "Free Beer Tomorrow" --whoa long post!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:06am Hendrik:

Yes De Snaar !! Great record :-)... My father was and is the best friend of this record label's boss :_)
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:19am Cecile:

snaar, where can I find that in any format?
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:22am Drummer Some:

Here Cecile:
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:24am Cecile:

thank you!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:25am Pete:

Wow, haven't heard qburns in a while! ;-)
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:29am Drummer Some:

Q-Burns is no relation to X-Ray Burns OR Mr. Burns.
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:31am J-Mar:

...or Panther Burns?
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:33am monica:

i'm floating, doug. great show today!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:33am still b/p:

George Burns.
"Say good night, feng shui."
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:35am Drummer Some:

I'd give anything to be the bass player on this track. Unfortunately, the healing powers of this music is NOT covered in the omnibus Health Care Reform Act!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:38am Drummer Some:

That Kongo Retro Band track is here:

(Merry Passover!)
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:39am ∂avid:

was this "Money Be No Sand" comp ever featured on the audio motherload?

it'd fit in great with your show....
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:42am Leigh:

Hi Doug, thanks for "La Belle Epoque: French Girls 1965-1968". Très génial!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:43am Drummer Some:

I've played that wonderful disc on the show tons, but I've never shared that one one Mining the Audio Motherlode.
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:48am r:

loving this set!
  Fri. 3/26/10 11:55am J-Mar:
