can we expect Jingle Dogs soon?
  2:15pm drr:

P.S.: always enjoy the math puzzlers you get to solve when commenting. This was a particularly puzzling one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Matt F:

Gonna have to wait til Xmas. And probably not then either.
  2:17pm drr:

Tell me what part of Jingle Bells has to do with Christmas. It's about sleighing, which is entirely appropriate to the season. More Clear Channel bullshit, I suppose.
Avatar 2:18pm L Ketchum Esq:

Cheerio Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Matt F:

The math puzzlers are 90% of the fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Matt F:

The other 10% is when the show is finally over at 4 PM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Matt F:

I say Lewis! Cheerio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm pacific standard simon:

Trust me, when I have to listen to this show at work, it's 100% of the fun.

Not being Christ-ian I really appreciate those non-Jeebus holiday tunes.

They don't have to put on a long track when they gotta go weewee -- just whip out the Gatorade bottle and there you go!

That ain't gatorade!

Dump THAT on a victorious coach.
  2:35pm drr:

A bass player I know refers to that as "Evian Gold".

Seattle, as a matter of fact, has a big problem with full Gatorade bottles alongside the highway. I blame it on The Cramps.

The Bladder Cramps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Matt F:

If they're full, that means people at least secure the caps before they toss em out the window...
  2:40pm Sean B.:

Was raving 'bout Otis Spann with a friend of mine on the phone who lives in Hannibal, MO early this morning. Chuck Berry's legend is very much alive there = The Good, The Bad & The Ugly among the town folk there.I guess even among people who don't even know his music. Huhhh...IRONY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Stanley:

Outa sight!
  2:44pm John Funke:

Wow, I remember seeing Artful Dodger open for the Kinks back in 1977. They were really good; them and the Kinks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Matt F:

Hey Johnzie! They were from Syracuse or Rochester or sumpin right? Artful Dodger, not the Kinks...

Thanx Simon. Long live the legend of good old Mr. Brown.

If they pass the white port & lemon juice, though, smell the bottle first...

Wow, I might bike over to the Domino Sound Record Shack which is two blocks from my house and tell them this S.E. Rogie is on the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Matt F:

PSS- Think I gotta stick with the tried & true 2 hour formula, owing to various other commitments, some FMU-related..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Matt F:

drr- are they the same as the label?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm pacific standard simon:

I know, and some parole-related.
Avatar 3:09pm Sean B.:

Said hello...out. Thanx.
  3:09pm John Funke:

Their Wikiphrenia entry mentions that the Artful Dodger boys were from Fairfax, Virginia. Anglophilia recognizes no regional boundaries.

There you have it folks. Thanks to our crack M.I.T.-based research team!

yo, matt! you're definitely makin' yourself happen over there. and it's sounding awesome over here.

Hey Mo! It's me happening and it freaks me out!
  3:14pm Hackensack Slim:

John F,
I saw the Kinks in 75. The openers were Cockney Rebel. I see a pattern here.
Fine show, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Uncle Michael:

Look at all the cool music I missed! It's been like this all week. Work is trying to spoil my fun.
Avatar 3:15pm still b/p:

If you get MIT powder instead of crack, you lay it out in smoots for snorting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Matt F:

You also do way less jail time.

Bonus points if you can name the movie Matt just referenced.

  3:22pm earrie:

Purty Django bday tribute, yeah-yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm pacific standard simon:

If there's a radio show that Django doesn't fit, I don't want to hear it.
Avatar 3:24pm still b/p:

That made a person want to play brushes nice and easy behind it And so does this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- nice picks - Thx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm pacific standard simon:

And Charlie Christian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- b. 1910
- Les Paul was all about Django, for one person...
  3:34pm drr:

Matt f.: yes, same guy. It's a great, tiny record store that specializes in Jamaican sounds but has a little bit of everything.
  3:36pm John Funke:

@H Slim, That's right it had to be November of 1975 when Artful Dodger opened for the Kinks on the "Schoolboys In Disgrace" tour at the Beacon theatre. I think it was Charlie that opened for the Kinks in '77.
  3:37pm drr:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Matt F:

drr- well I'll be goddamned. Have meant to visit every time I've been to NOLA but always sidetracked by oysters, booze, or whatever, as tends to happen down there...
Avatar 3:38pm glenn:

from an interview with richard and linda thompson, pre rancorous divorce -
richard "django had everything a guitarist could want"
linda "well, except for fingers"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...ha ha ! Django & Jimi woulda played w/ their gawdam doodlebangers though if they had to...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...which sounds totally wrong in a @ least three ways...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Matt F:

Speaking of Richard Thompson...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm pacific standard simon:

Wonder how long a list you could make of guitarists with missing or mangled digits? There's Jerry Garcia...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Tony Iommi...
Avatar 3:43pm glenn:

you want armless musicians? www.dekedickerson.com...
  3:44pm earrie:

Isn't this song called Black Waterside?
Pretty sure this is first time I've heard it sung by a woman.
  3:44pm Hackensack Slim:

Hound Dog Taylor had six fingers. Does that count?
  3:45pm earrie:

Oh. Scratch that. D'oh reh, me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm pacific standard simon:

@Hackensack Slim - Yeah, cuz he cut one of 'em off with a straight razor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm pacific standard simon:

Awesome link, Glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Matt F:

Wait, so he started with seven fingers?
Avatar 3:47pm glenn:

honestly, i think deke dickerson has the best website of any musician out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I think Hendrix' dad was born w/ a vestige of an extra finger removed @ birth...yeah quite the link glenn !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm pacific standard simon:

If you ever see the lyric sheet for the original version of this song, note that it's not spelled "for later", heh heh...
  3:49pm earrie:

How's it spelled? I love this cover; I just heard for the first time recently.
Avatar 3:49pm still b/p:

5000 Fingers of Dr. T.
No, wait...
Avatar 3:49pm glenn:

yes, it's black waterside. you know who stole it for the zeppelins.
linda thompson does a great version of it, speaking of her, but the "first" version is by anne briggs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm pacific standard simon:

Those sixth fingers were just vestigial extra pinkies, and one of them got in the way one time too many.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Matt F:

Bert Jansch did the version of Blackwaterside that Pagey stole pretty much note for note.
Avatar 3:53pm glenn:

ooooh. matt makes a good point. i may be wr wr wr.
Avatar 3:54pm glenn:

but then again, didn't he steal it for the yardbirds first, as white summer?
so he stole from himself, sorta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the music, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Matt F:

True dat.
  3:55pm earrie:

And Nick Drake and Donovan covered Jansch's version, too.

It goes pretty far back in the folk tradition, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm pacific standard simon:

Yes, we likes dis show. It's grand. Thanks, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Dylan & Paul Simon had blown thru the UK Folk scene too...we need a good long documentary about that Scene...Davy Graham was earlier than (the inestimable) Jansch (I don't mean w/ that tune specifically)...
Avatar 3:58pm glenn:

it's one of the child ballads, i believe. it was sung a capella, but i think, (although i'm probably wrong) that anne briggs was the first to accompany it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm pacific standard simon:

And THIS song is the same as "I'm Your Man"!
  4:00pm earrie:

I found 'traditional folk tune', 'source not enitrely known' . Maybe River Blackwater in Ireland? when I went looking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Matt F:

You bet your ass it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm pacific standard simon:
