"Electric Sitar" usually name those DanElectro guitars with that special mechanical extra, which make them sound like sitars.

@wo town wick - yep, it was a BEATLES cover, so efd still has not had the beatles themselves on his show. did DAVE HILL joke, on-air, about the recent lovefest for the beatles: "i'm glad they're getting their due".

Brian is correct. Kush was traditionally around the confluence of the Niles in today's Khartoum and stretching north and south from there.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 11:43am Cecile:

Joe, I just re-sponsored Diane Kamikaze.

I have just one request for prizes - can you offer a 2XL or 3XL ladies tee in the future? I'm not small, but I can't wear men's shirts anymore either - too up and down and tight in the middle. I will pledge more in the future if I have to get that.
  Thu. 2/20/14 11:44am Brendan:

Love the sets Joe. From funk to groovy to misty eyed. Every day should be like Thursday morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/20/14 11:45am Greg from Bloomfield:

Whoa, did he nick that from Incredible String Band?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 11:45am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Cool! Diane will be pleased, I know. As for the shirts, we just don't have enough demand for the larger women's sizes, so it's not really cost-efficient to get 'em. I wish we could, but it gets so expensive to get so many sizes!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 11:46am Joe McG:

@Brendan: Thanks, my friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/20/14 11:46am common:

@joe: ha! and thanks for the great tunes!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 11:48am Cecile:

I think there are more larger ladies out there that don't select tee shirts because their sizes aren't there, or they just sigh and get a man's tee shirt. Or maybe give us an option to order a CustomInk or other online print shirt individually and have some of the money go to you.
