Bonsoir Rex !
Avatar 1:07pm fred:

Good afternoon Rex.
I hope I didn't mislead Sean T by saying Gabriel might have a show on KDHX in St Louis. I had looked him up after listening to the archive for last week's how, but I'm not sure he's the right Gabriel
Avatar 1:09pm fred:

Bonsoir pierre! You missed something yesterday: L'Ocelle Mare was great, even by his lofty standards
Avatar 1:10pm glenn:

Gabriel began as a DJ in 1952 at WOKZ, did stints at WTMV, KATZ and WESL, before starting at KDHX proper in 1989. He’s run record stores, produced records, and cut his own sides. I’ve been told Gabriel is a gifted trumpet player, a competent pedal steel guitarist and a pretty good singer, though I’ve never heard any of the 45s he made back in the day. John May at BB’s Jazz, Blues & Soups says he’s working with the folks at Living Blues magazine to get a collection released, perhaps in time for a limited run for the Gabriel Benefit on August 7.

Holy Mackerel! Lurene Tuttle had a career that boggles the mind. She even appeared on your favorite TV show, Burke's Law!
  1:10pm RevPhil:

Lurene Tuttle looks like a new member of the NRA.

@fred : oo, flute. But then I was trying my resistance to Tequila… I lost.

@RevPhil: proof that the Second Amendment is what stands between law-abiding citizens and bloodthirsty intruders. Wait... isn't that Lurene Tuttle as Ma Barker?

Nice to see Lurene Tuttle getting her props.

Lurlene as Ma Barker. Don't f. with her.

I bought a bottle of tequila just this morning.
  1:52pm Chad and Chad:

Great show today!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Parq:

If the Pink Pussycat commercial was on the playlist, I'd mark it as a favorite. "Winos On Parade" still stands as one of my five or six all time favorite dee jay premiums.
Avatar 1:57pm fred:

@Parq: Agreed, both about the star and the premium's ranking
Avatar 1:57pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

boy are there so many damned empty bottles in our garage.
  1:58pm amira:

I think Ma Barker's hideout in Ocklawaha, FL is still on the market.
Avatar 1:59pm fred:

@GMMM: has that tequila bottle joined them yet, or do you need to make room for it?
Avatar 2:02pm Tony in Durham NC:

I just wanna say hey. So "hey"!
Avatar 2:03pm fred:

@Parq: come to think of it, I'd star all of Rex' classic sound bites. And if he ever makes a premium out of these, it would rise to the top of my fave list
Avatar 2:03pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

miraculously the tequila bottle has yet to be opened.
  2:04pm RevPhil:

The group on that Star-X record is The Fresandos fron Detroit.

There is a see through grave in VT about 45 minutes from me. It is a guy back 150 years ago or so back when people were terrified of being buried alive. He had a window ontop of the grave and a bell placed in his hand to ring if he woke up.

@GMMM: this kinda makes sense to me, though it's also sad. Everybody dies, sooner or later, I'd rather focus on living

"Rats Revenge" was by the Rats.

Brother Zee and the Decades did SHA BOOM BANG !
Avatar 2:36pm fred:

@GMMM: I had to look up the Green Mountains after seeing you so often around here. Looks like my kind of place. And I have some history with Montpellier, the French one that is: by best friends either live or have lived there by some coincidence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm G:

A Swiss poet, Gottfried Keller, write a cycle of poems on being buried alive (Lebendig Begraben) in the 1800s, and it turned into what we would now call a meme.

For awhile, a fair number of people were really worried about having that happen to them, and there were various inventions and rigs aimed at preventing it.

In those days, all they could do to decide on death was lowtech stuff like whether they could detect a pulse or breathing, and if not then they called you dead. But that didn't prove true every once in awhile, and those stories got around in the newspapers.
Avatar 2:40pm fred:

G, how we went beyond these crude methods: just tune in to Fool's paradise. If they don't move, either in appreciation or recoil, that's a corpse
Avatar 2:42pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

@fred-I live near Montpelier in Barre. It is the granite capital of the world. Check out Hope cemetery in Barre on the web. It has many, many crazy and interesting stones such as replicas of vehicles, pyramids, giant soccer balls and the like.
  2:48pm amira:

But where is that go-go cage now, Rex??!!!??
Avatar 2:49pm fred:

@GMMM: weird indeed, but is it really so white? The pics I saw were so clean looking, it was almost gross. I don't expect to see granite decay, but those pics were downright clinical. I love rocks, these were too tame
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm I X Key!:

Good morning! Love the show, Rex!
Avatar 2:51pm fred:

@GMMM: Barre? Barre Phillips is a great bass player. I wonder whether he was named after your town
Avatar 2:53pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

yeah pics of grey granite do look white. Maybe the lighting. But it is the same granite that is all over the world in monuments and such. Even the new MLK monument comes from our quarries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm G:

Barre VT is named after Isaac Barre, an Irish politician in the United Kingdom who had recently supported American Independence. Bet Mark knows VT was actually an independent country for a short time in the late 1700s before joining the US.
Avatar 2:57pm fred:

A city so proud of rock would definitely be my kind of place. If I ever earn so much there's enough left after the marathon I'll definitely visit
Avatar 2:58pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

yup. and the name Barre was decided in a fist fight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm G:

Yep, they were pretty stubborn about their freedom back then. Freeform forever!

Hi Rex,
I heard a snippet of you describing the story of man who built himself a glass coffin. I'd like to hear the story again, and learn more details about it. Tell me more, please!
