  9:16am still b/p:

New stream name: "Nothing Has Tormented Me More"

Good to hear you this morning.

Monroe Silver....Alan Sherman's lyrical godfather?
  9:16am Drummer Some:

Scott, Probably when I come up with a name for the stream!
  9:20am annie:

hhmm. ok... just to be sure i'm hearing the drummer. i hear clarinet?
  9:21am Drummer Some:

Yes, Annie, yes! Klezmer clarinet.
  9:23am north guinea hills:

Had the weekly MTA moment, stalled train made my commute 25 minutes longer. I bet Doug really misses MTA miscues.
  9:23am annie:

way cool, cause i may have been detoured through the outer ear. sweet sounds, very sweet for a friday morning.
  9:23am Frank MealsWheels:

Loud 'n Clear
Ever seen any of the Olsen & Johnson films?
The opening for Hellzapoppin' is magnificent
  9:24am Terry:

I'm hearing a little scratchy kinda sound. It might be from the crappy thin client the IT thugs installed at my work station. Good to be back with you though Doug.!
  9:25am north guinea hills:

Wow, this Ben Batuch is on Sub Rosa? Nice!
  9:25am Drummer Some:

The cantorial singing right now is from a really old scratchy source recording. Mebbe that's it.
  9:31am annie:

you were both playing clarinet at the same time.. have to reload
  9:33am annie:

.. hhmm.. nope... .. i clicked the listen to fmu at the top right and i get IED.
  9:34am Drummer Some:

The stream address is
  9:37am annie:

i went to your fb post.. clicked the link instead, i'm totally on board now. :) and have bookmarked it on winamp
  9:37am Bob:

Some of that Steven Bernstein Diaspora Soul would fit well into this set...
  9:45am sinner:

Sounds GREAT so far.
  9:46am Liz B.:

Hope yins are settling into Pittsburgh!
  9:47am Drummer Some:

More like shtettling after that first set. Ha!
  9:50am annie:

the sound is wonderful doug. coiming from these small laptop speakers. coming from the days of transistor radio to this??? this is all soo sweet..
  9:51am Drummer Some:

About to play actual vinyl and not just some scratchy old MP3!
  9:55am jill:

Look at you, a week in Pittsburgh and already taking advantage of Jerry's Records - going there is like being a crackhead in a crack store
  9:56am Drummer Some:

I can quit any time. No really!
  9:59am annie:

so.. doug... if i pull the winamp up, say, sunday afternoon and click the bookmark and then play... what will i hear? nothing?
  10:02am annie:

  10:03am rey:

Sounding really good, Doug. Groovin' to this Chicago jazz. Some Mezz Mezzrow would hit the spot right about now
  10:03am Drummer Some:

The stream runs 24/7. When I am not on LIVE on Friday morning, the stream is running a rotation of more 10,000 MP3s I have personally curated for it. And I am adding more MP3s all the time!
  10:03am rey:

Strayhorn! Even better.
  10:05am jill:

hey doug - i connected with the Strayhorn family while i lived there - they are really great and are ususally quite accessible. Let me know if you need any contact information.
  10:06am annie:

there's a great line at the end of sergio mendes's "this is it" piece.. all she declares is: "we are in heaven!"
and so that is how i feel
  10:14am still b/p:

The Doctor showing skills and savin' lives in the Boperatin' Room.
  10:15am jk:

nothing says friday morning more than Doug's voice on the radio. welcome back! and thank you again
  10:17am annie:

  10:24am Drummer Some:

To be here doing this with you all makes me happier than you'll ever know.
  10:24am annie:

just think jk; everytime you want the week to magically skip forward.. well...there you are on the audio deliciousness of drummer some
  10:24am pat in park slope:

Ah, Squirrel Hill when I was young ...
  10:28am LizGig:

Hi Doug! I've been listening to the 24 stream, but it's not the same as being here. Good to have you back.
  10:28am still b/p:

But...yes, now and then we DO need to hear about the trash truck and neighborhood sights & accompaniments and misc. location quirks -- all will be nicely suited notes of show's adjusted origination/character, and reminders of your efforts made to our benefit.
  10:31am monica:

mornin', doug! so great to have you bringin' the country to the city, live and everythang. congrats on your inaugural pittsburgh b'cast!
  10:31am annie:

bp- i know there's a "like" button in heaven for that comment
  10:33am annie:

oh, crap... a crying song
  10:37am em:

"like button in heaven" sounds like it could be the title of one of those newfangled country songs
  10:40am annie:

country songs for the facebook generation.. there has to be a market for them
  10:40am Drummer Some:

Hey hey Monica! Did you hear my shout out to Butter? (Or my woof out, actually.)
  10:41am jk:

freedom from the fcc
  10:41am annie:

yes!!! bleep-free listening
  10:42am sinner:

How 'bout some David Allan Coe!!!
  10:43am annie:

sweet, only 10:30
  10:43am annie:

  10:47am Drummer Some:

Sinner, I released download that XXX/racist rant record from David Allen Coe.I feel so ashamed. It is really repugnant.
  10:53am Drummer Some:

Of course, now that I am broadcasting exclusively online, I can play that repugnant record and not draw the ire of the FCC. Nah, it's too disgusting.
  10:57am north guinea hills:

  11:01am sinner:

At least you can play "Would You Lay With Me" sometime.....
  11:02am monica:

hey doug, sorry i missed it, will have to check it via the archive and play it back for butter, how sweet,
  11:02am rey:

listen closely for great bassist Bobby Rodriguez' rythmic mumbling in background. Love that!
  11:02am Drummer Some:

Tanya Tucker's "Would You Lay With Me in a Field of Stones" makes me feel dirty. What was she, 14? Sheesh.
  11:06am sinner:

...just tell you momma and your daddy / you're just a schoolboy too......
  11:07am rey:

speaking of dirty here's La Lupe,
  11:14am annie:

  11:17am LizGig:

Hurrah for Proper Music! They're my favourite distributor.
  11:20am LizGig:

Doug, I can't believe you let MOVERS pack your records!
  11:24am Alex:

So that explains what keeps playing during the non-live time. I just had switched back from my telephone headphones on which I was in a meeting, so I did not hear the part about why the show needs to change the name.
  11:25am annie:

lizgig, they have resurrected some amazing stuff!
  11:25am Drummer Some:

Well, yeah. It was a crazy thing to do. But there just so damn many of them. It would've taken me a week. Four guys worked six hours each doing nothing byt pack my music. Four hard-charging professional movers. It was astonishing.
  11:28am north guinea hills:

Between listening to my new recs, my old recs, i'm still 3 weeks behind in listening to Doug's choice cuts on his Audio Motherload newsletter. I can't keep up!
  11:29am Drummer Some:

The show name is staying the same. I need a new name for the stream because "The Audio Motherlode" is not (so I've been told, though I have to say I agree) "descriptive" enough.
  11:31am LizGig:

24 hours?! That's a staggering amount of music. Obviously all us admiring listeners know you have a massive amount of music, but when you quantify it like that it's pretty flabbergasting. And that doesn't include mp3s!
  11:32am north guinea hills:

If only there were a comma in that album title, then it would be, "Satan, Get Back! (here)"
  11:33am Drummer Some:

Well they mighta packed a few books too.
  11:36am annie:

doug, i've been wracking my brain for something catchy enough to get caught in a google search
  11:37am Kenzo:

Doug, we've gotta update that "listen" link at the top of your playlists to be for the new stream.

I can do it right now!
  11:39am Drummer Some:

Wow, thanks! Then I gotta change that link too (the text is actually part of a jpg).
  11:39am PMD:

I appreciate that the link to Doug's show shows up on the home page. I found it easily this week. Last week I had to dig through my emails from Doug. Hi Doug!!
  11:39am trs:

I like the word, 'wrack', because it makes me think of tidal wracks, the oceanic organic debris that gets left at high water marks.

So, I nominate, for your consideration, 'Radio Wracket'.
  11:40am north guinea hills:

The background ambiance of this Brother Higgins track is awesome!
  11:40am Kenzo:

Then should I wait?
  11:43am Drummer Some:

With gratitude I would say go ahead and change the link now. I i will change the image (or, more likely, ask you how to change the image) later. Many many thanks.
  11:43am PMD:

How do I listen after the fact to the time when Doug is live? IE his voice appears? (Lazy me)
  11:44am trs:

intertidal oceanic I should say. Inter-tidal. Photic zone. Where the action is.
  11:46am annie:

see i had a silly thing like radio gold...or streams of gold...
  11:47am annie:

then i was trying to throw aural in there
  11:49am Kenzo:

There you go...the link in the upper right of Doug's playlists will now actually play Doug's stream!
  11:49am PMD:

Brainstorm of names based on song titles here:
- Waltz of the Easy [or...?] Times
- Feeling the Mix [or...? Aural Love? or...?]
- Cantar, Banjo, Africa
- Inspiration by Design [or...? Doug? or...]
  11:51am annie:

just to name-drop, btw, if you all are interested in that stupid wife-swap show.. one of our own here in delaware county is on the show tonight.. she sure has some stories to tell about all that! the lady who took her place demanded to be put up at the holiday inn cause she was afraid of pigs.
  11:51am annie:

... and now back to the regular programming
  11:56am Bob:

Great show!
  11:57am Ike:

Good to hear your voice, Doug, although your mic sounds a little harsh. Maybe a bit trebly.
  11:59am Drummer Some:

Thanks for that comment Ike. It's a challenge to make adjustments to the mic because I can't monitor myself the normal way. I'll check out the archive and tweak it!
  12:01pm Ike:

Ah, I see. I may not have described the sound very well. You can judge better than I can. A bit overmodulated maybe. Good luck.
  12:40pm Culture Rover:

Give the Steam Some!
