VampiSoul!! Wow, happy to learn more about Joe Bataan! If it's from VampiSoul I know it's good. Thank you so much!
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:34am Destroit:

This is beyond a NY market. This is worldwide. I'm a douche bag in Michigan, and there is good radio in Michigan, WCBN is amazing, WDET is on point, but WFMU is at whole new level. Pour this station some money, it's truly unique. Give the money, so worth it.
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:35am Holly in NC:

@Matt - Dr. Seuss lover. And currently not using my master's degree in health admin to tutor & babysit, dogsit, catsit, yomamasit, whatever. Loving it!

Hello Mario! Welcome.
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: Wish you stable, full employment soon, but at least you're having fun with Dr. Seuss (and WFMU!) in the meantime. I'm a fan of ol' Theodore's work myself.
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

Carm: It's March, I gotta get on the ball with those myself. Deducting WFMU donations (minus swag received) gives a grain of satisfaction to the whole process.

Also glad last week's pocket-size Single File has been expanded into at least a Value size Single File this week!
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:45am Holly in NC:

@Destroit makes an excellent point. I'm fortunate enough to live an area with not 1 but 2 really, really good-great college radio stations - but 'fmu is a whole 'nother beast. And think of all the folks who don't have local options!

  Sun. 3/4/12 1:53am Brian en Angleterre:

david as the song goes 'You Don't Miss Your Water 'Till Your Well Runs Dry'. We are so spoiled here on this station with innovation and development taken as normal. There are no laurels to rest on here. So support, support, support.

  Sun. 3/4/12 1:58am Holly in NC:

@Destroit - KNC (NCSU) NOT on my list. But neither XDU (Duke) or XYC (UNC) serve Raleigh well. You were in the wrong part of the triangle!
  Sun. 3/4/12 1:59am Heartbreak0r:

The man I'm dumping says he really likes this song!!

  Sun. 3/4/12 2:06am Joshua K:

A buffalo is the american version of a bison.

You can't wash your hands in a buffalo!!!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:07am KP:

The Monkees did do that on that last tour, as i remember JB saying.

Haha, no need for clean. Real talk! This quasi bluegrass music is great.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:26am mike noble in dc:

bluegrass didn't emerge as a distinct form until after world war 2
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:29am Carmichael:

OK, night all. Spencer wants to lay on the bed instead of the couch. See everyone tomorrow. Same bat time, same bat channel.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:29am Rich:

@Mike in D.C. Point me at bluegrass history?
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:30am Destroit:

I grew up on bill Monroe, circa 1978, dancing in diapers.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:31am mike noble in dc:

@Rich - I seem to have only absorbed that info by osmosis. I can't point you to anything specific unfortunately.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:32am Rich:

Thanks Mike.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:33am mike noble in dc:

@Rich - maybe you could check out "How Bluegrass Music Destroyed My Life" by John Fahey

Up for grabs for $15 pledge -- "Take Me to the Water: 1890-1950" CD and book!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 3/4/12 2:33am Joe McG:

Anyone else out there who hasn't pledged? Help me make my goal tonight, I'm pretty close!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:34am Holly in NC:

Joe, thank you for a great show, as always! Really have to go, between caring for a child whose bout of cyclic vomiting syndrome came on a week early (google it, it's NOT a joke, it's frigging horrible) & the Duke b-ball loss I am physically & emotionally all gone.

Love to all y'all. Oh, Dolly is one of my heroines!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:35am Rich:

Mike, thanks again.

Joe is 13% away from his goal -- Please pledge! We've got 25 minutes to do it!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:36am mike noble in dc:

@Destroit & @Rich - what do you think, would a bio of bill monroe be a good place to start, since he's the father of the genre?
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:36am Brian en Angleterre:

Rich Old Timey was one name given to early styles, but in them thar days I guess they were less concerned in categories like we seem to be nowadays.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:38am Destroit:

Good night Holly. Dolly was great. This country bend is proper on this show. Good stuff Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 3/4/12 2:38am Mike Sin:

"This May Be the Last Time" 3-CD gospel set up for grabs with $15 pledge!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:42am Rich:

Thank You All! I really love all that early anglo folk music influence.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:43am Brian en Angleterre:

$210 needed. Do it NOW.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:44am Destroit:

@ mike noble, wikiPedia bluegrass and ride my man, nobody is going to give you better guidance if you want to explore the genre. Modern bluegrass, listen to the Steeldrivers.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:47am Brian en Angleterre:

Harry Smiths Anthology is a good starting point. All taken from singles 1927 - 1933 at a time when record companies would arrive in town and record whoever pitched up.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:47am Rich:

This communitie is the best!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:48am mike noble in dc:

I like hearing Joe say "kitty." But now I want to hear him say "kit and caboodle." If he uses that phrase I will make another pledge. I'll add a $5 gratuity if he manages to get "pajama" in the same sentence.

  Sun. 3/4/12 2:48am KP:

I guess i missed my name. Good night.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:49am david:

i have not a penny left to pledge but i am willing that meter ever upwards.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:50am Holly in NC:

What David said.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:52am mike noble in dc:

if youns haven't seen it, i highly recommend the joe bussard doc DESPERATE MAN BLUES. if you're not content just listening to those old 78s compiled, but also want to learn about the eccentric guy who's the most renowned collector of the stuff. also if you are in the maryland vicinity, i hear the guy welcomes all visitors to his basement record library.

  Sun. 3/4/12 2:54am mike noble in dc:

i love watching that tail wag.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:54am Holly in NC:

I've never seen the tail wag before!!!! So cool!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:55am joe:

Congrats Joe.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:56am joe:

Look at that doggy wag
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:57am Brian en Angleterre:

Well done, Joe. Better get some honey down to protect the voice for tonight.
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:57am Kenzo:

Nice going!
  Sun. 3/4/12 2:58am mike noble in dc:

green apples, lozenges and honey.
  Sun. 3/4/12 3:01am Joshua K:

I missed the last prize drawing by a minute, but I'm still going to have a big mound of swag. Productive marathon this year, very close to the goal.
