Hiya Becky, folks!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Handy Haversack:

Becky! Tonka Trucks! Let's load up with Pledge Ghosts and CONVOY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm loveless:

You wanna rumble? Hello all.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Handy Haversack:

Them's rumblin' words!

Hey, loveless, Pauly, ultradamno!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm loveless:

@Handy Hey there!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hey Handy!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm ultradamno:

Hiya Handy!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Handy Haversack:

Here's a great tool shows the peoples and languages indigenous to anyone's locality and also the treaties that were made concerning them: native-land.ca
Avatar 8:05pm y_ddraig_las:

Wow, almost missed it! Evening y'all. Is this the one week the show is at 12 (GMT+1) before the clocks go back to normal time?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Handy Haversack:

One more week after this, y_ddraig_las, I think. Our time change is 7 November.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Rich in Washington:

Used to have this thing about Link Wray. Used to play him every Saturday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Becky:

Thanks Handy - awesome link. Ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Becky:

Hey y'all - I obviously need a lot of help in the pledge department! If you have the means and interest, I'd be ever grateful!
Avatar 8:09pm y_ddraig_las:

That's an amazingly detailed map Handy! I'm sad that the Celtic languages aren't on there, but I suppose it's because the Celts displaced the beaker people!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Handy Haversack:

I can's speak definitely, y_ddraig_las, but my guess is that it shows Indigenous people displaced from Age of Sail/colonization onward? Though of course the Celts were displaced from pretty early days!

Though also maybe it's just still in development? It's a N. American project so is likely spreading its base outward from this continent.

You a son of a Gun, you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Rich in Washington:

Man, we listened to lots of Marty Robbins in my childhood home. This is a time machine for me.
Avatar 8:17pm y_ddraig_las:

Or maybe because Europe would be very difficult to do any sort of justice to. We Welsh just like to reminding people that Welsh was spoken here long before English came along.
  8:18pm Ms.Klara:

Nothing but the best - Marty passes the test! ❤️
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Becky:

I grew up thinking he was just a NASCAR driver who died young.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:20pm ultradamno:

This is probably my favorite Link
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

Hearing it in Pink Flamingos was probably was put onto Wray many, many years ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Rich in Washington:

He does have a certain NASCAR je ne sais quoi to him, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Becky:

I mean, he was a NASCAR driver! That was just the only thing I ever knew.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Handy Haversack:

Becky, what was the band at Otto's? It's not on their calendar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. I did not know that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Rich in Washington:

This is smokin'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm listener 126464:

Hero of The Blues!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Becky:

@Handy Western Caravan with Thirsty Dave - next Tuesday at 7!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks! We'll try. Not sure how ridiculously scheduled up K8 is next week.
Avatar 8:27pm y_ddraig_las:

This is sublime
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Rich in Washington:

I'd never heard of Rainwater until I stumbled upon one of his singles titled Tea Bag Romeo, and this was around the time of the rise of the 'tea party' republicans, so naturally, I was intrigued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Becky:

Sorry folks! This is what you get for playing, gulp, CDs.
  8:32pm BH:

One day there'll be nostalgia for CDs?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Handy Haversack:

[gasps!]
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm ultradamno:

...as digital downloads become the norm, I already am. There. I said it.
Avatar 8:35pm y_ddraig_las:

I never thought cassettes would ever come back, but come back they did! T
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Pauly from Clifton:

@ultradamno, thanks for that link (sorry!) that you posted at the beginning of the show. Link Wray is just so good. I was lucky to catch him in Raleigh in '98 perhaps? How this guy's not in the RnR Hall perplexes me.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Handy Haversack:

Summon some angry country ghosts! Pledge for Honky Tonk Radio Girl -- and keep the CDs in the bank!

pledge.wfmu.org...

If you can swing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm steveo:

Great show, enjoying it a lot -- hello!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm ultradamno:

How they kept jerking him around was obscene
Avatar 8:38pm casiocreature:

Wicked show. Remember the harvest!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm ultradamno:

I think she canoodled with Iggy, if I'm remembering a passage from I Need More correctly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Dave in Vermont:

For more like this, Joe Belock did a great Native American Rockers show on Indigenous People's Day

Avatar 8:41pm y_ddraig_las:

A flatmate of mine put Concentration Moon on repeat in his room, locked his door and went out. My appreciation of this tune is now somewhat coloured!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Rich in Washington:

I'm all ready for the CD revival!
  8:42pm Old Dave:

How is Buffy Ste-Marie a honky tonk category - or Frank fer Chrissakes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Old Dave, this is a freeform station, so Honky Tonk is what I decide it is! <3
  8:43pm Matt from Ok:

Check out Samantha Crain from Oklahoma. She is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Becky:

Wait til we get to the next set, it will be SO honky tonk.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm PigeonsAndRust:

I'm always on the outside of things, but I feel right at home here
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Handy Haversack:

"What Becky says it is" has been my operational definition for quite some time.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm PigeonsAndRust:

Thanks for the show tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm loveless:

Here's a playlist that is inspired by the documentary, "Rumble". A few of the artists that Becky played tonight are on it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm steveo:

honky tonk is a continuum
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm ultradamno:

I'd just hate for the words "honky" and "tonk" to come off as nonsense. 😉
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Handy Haversack:

What sort of hookery-jackery might result, ultradamno!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Rich in Washington:

@Becky: I am glad I am not the only one who's lukewarm on The Band.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm ultradamno:

Oh...we see eye to eye on The Band issue!
  8:49pm Old Dave:

Sorry all, she pretended to understand bluegrass some time ago and got a pass in NJ. Who knows what Ken will allow next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Rich in Washington:

Jimmy Carl Black did some cool stuff with Eugene Chadbourne shortly before shuffling off this mortal coil - also not quite radio safe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

Dave, if there's anything I would never pretend, it's to understand bluegrass. Thanks for your feedback.
Avatar 8:52pm Chapelhillian:

I saw Link Wray in Tucson about 20 years back. He had a local rhythm section for the show and they only had about 30 minutes of material rehearsed. So they played it twice
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm ultradamno:

It's speed metal for guys without amplifiers and pedals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm listener 126464:

You gotta get a crushed soda can under each heel to do the Robot Walk, per X-Ray.
Avatar 8:54pm y_ddraig_las:

Because grass is blue. A lot of Pre-English languages (including Welsh) used a different colour spectrum, 'blue' used to include some dark greens. Nothing to do with the music mind!
  8:54pm Old Dave:

I am chastened over here. Good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Becky:

By the way, Redbone and this stone cold Number One Hit is ABSOLUTELY honky tonk. I will not be taking questions.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm ultradamno:

I wouldn't question it. I think I saw this at the time. Big hit.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Handy Haversack:

Accolades only!

Thanks, Becky! Great show. And thanks for highlighting Indigenous musicians. It's something we need to be doing more and more. Much appreciated.

Later on, Tonkers! Pledge if you can!

Now to go grab some quality time with the new kittens!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm listener 126464:

I think they did a traditional dance before the song.
Avatar 8:59pm y_ddraig_las:

Another top show Becky and Tonkies! Nos da
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm listener 126464:

Thanks Becky!!!
  9:00pm N'Lo:

This live version from Redbone was everything! Thanks Becky!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm radioronan:

Thanks Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Rich in Washington:

This was fantastic! Thanks for making radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm steveo:
