I know so many people for whom the Wilburrys were the pinnacle of rock cullture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm listener james from westwood:

I worked with a guy whose last name was Bontemps. Ironically, he was always glum.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Matt F:

Recently had the "what if he had lived" convo about Buddy Holly with Dave the Spazz. topics: would he have had a mustache? would he have been in the traveling wilburys?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Uncle Michael:

I have a friend that's sure James Dean would have appeared on The Love Boat.
Avatar 2:12pm Holly in NC:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm MattBelow:

Part of me feels Buddy would've went the way of Johnny Burnette. But I could be wrong! The other part that he could've had a career like the Everly's and championed by the Brits and Sunset Strip scenes.
Avatar 2:12pm glenn:

buddy holly would have been jimi hendrix before jimi hendrix. or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar 2:13pm Ted Barron:

What, are you playing alphabetical today?
Avatar 2:13pm Brian in UK:

Is this Fifty years old?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Uncle Michael:

I think Matt's got us covered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Matt F:

Whoa! I just noticed that Ted! I swear I'm not using a computer...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, congratulations on remembering all the words, Sunday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Matt F:

Here's one that doesn't start with H or I.

Eastern PA getting some love here.
  2:17pm Andy S.:

It's Lightnin' Slim's birthday (born 1913). Howsabout a tune in his memory?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm listener james from westwood:

Though not Easton, PA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm MattBelow:

Can the next one start with a Z?
Avatar 2:17pm Holly in NC:

Alternate universe thought - any way that Buddy would have ended up playing *for* Waylon?
Avatar 2:17pm glenn:

he's lightnin' VERY slim by now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Matt F:

Whoa! Andy, I didn't know that but I just happen to have a Lightnin' Slim record picked out for today's show! Probly in the last set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Matt F:

Another theory is that Buddy would have been Doug Sahm before Doug Sahm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Uncle Michael:

A live version of The Gift kind of blows my tiny mind.
Avatar 2:23pm Holly in NC:

Oh man, I can't imagine anyone outDouging Doug Sahm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

Buddy might have spent the '60s making records with Billy Sherrill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Uncle Michael:

Chet Atkins might have gotten his mitts on him too.
  2:27pm drr:

Is this "The Gift" strictly instrumental, or am I short a speaker?
Avatar 2:29pm northguineahills:

Whoops, fell through the roof. I guess I'm stuck on the GTDS stream (stream automatically switched).
Avatar 2:30pm Holly in NC:

Egads, Billy Sherrill. Soo much to answer for. Damn strings (shudder)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Uncle Michael:

It's Candi Staton's birthday today....just sayin'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Matt F:

drr- speakers are fine. No Child's Xmas in Wales-style narration on that version.
  2:37pm drr:

Little known fact, "The Gift" was called "The Hobbit" before the Tolkien estate intervened. It was composed for a Pickwick-produced educational filmstrip.
Avatar 2:37pm Holly in NC:

Mike Stoller's b-day also

Avatar 2:41pm Holly in NC:

March 13th: On this Day (select)

1960, Johnny Preston was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Running Bear', also No.1 in the US.

1965, Eric Clapton quit The Yardbirds due to musical differences with the other band members.

1966, Rod Stewart left the British blues band Steampacket to work as a solo artist.

1966, Pink Floyd appeared for the first time at The Marquee in Wardour Street, London, England.

1977, Iggy Pop and David Bowie kicked off a North American tour at Le Plateau Theatre, Montreal, Canada with Blondie as the opening act.

2006, The Sex Pistols refused to attend their own induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. . Blondie, Herb Alpert and Black Sabbath were all inducted but the Pistols posted a handwritten note on their website, calling the institution "urine in wine", adding "We're not your monkeys, we're not coming. You're not paying attention".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Uncle Michael:

Bless them.
Avatar 2:42pm Brian in UK:

Hey Eurovision Song Contest 1967 Sandie Shaw.
  2:43pm drr:

You know, I'm not waiting for that Johnny Preston revival.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Matt F:

Brian- couldn't stomach the Sandie Shaw version today, so I went with this for my soon-to-be-revealed gimmick...
Avatar 2:44pm Holly in NC:

I used to play Running Bear over & over late night at the local Waffle House.
Avatar 2:45pm Brian in UK:

Matt you sure made the right choice.
Her gimmick was singing without shoes. Did not work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Matt F:

George Jones does a great Running Bear.
  2:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Penn and Oldham magnificence!
  2:47pm drr:

Matt: that's nothing! The one that gets me is how Reed and Cale hired LaMonte Young to do some arranging, just as a favor, not even a real recording date, but the lead sheets survived and were the basis for the Trammps' "Disco Inferno".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Matt F:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm MattBelow:

Surreal groupings! First the alphabet...now this!
Avatar 2:50pm Holly in NC:

Monica may not have a programme right now but the memory lingers on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Matt F:

Sorry, no room for Topo Gigio or anything from the highly sought after Sesame Street record label today.
Avatar 2:54pm Monica:

ahhhh, johnny hartmann.... now yer talkin', matt!! lovin' today's show, à toujours. saw johnny hartmann perform back in chicago circa '77 or so.

Brian, that was impressive! Hi Monica!
Avatar 3:01pm Monica:

yo, holly and "all y'all," as matt said!
Avatar 3:02pm still b/p:

Never heard this Wine and Roses version, man. It musta been out in the greenhouse in the fourth pot, third table, fifth row.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Uncle Michael:

There's a string on my thing. I can do my thing underwater.

Sheriff sounds like he's auctioning off some kinda somethin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Matt F:

One of the items is catfish knees, that much i know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm listener james from westwood:

Buyer might be some time a waitin' for delivery on those.
Avatar 3:18pm Holly in NC:

Have y'all seen the currently viral tortoise sex video? It may actually be considered pornographic by some, & I dare say it's likely nsfw. The ending is just....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm fleep:

Catfish knee is a condition, much like flounder foot.
Avatar 3:21pm glenn:

speedy and jimmy playing behind kay and ernie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Matt F:

glenn- i would guess so.
Avatar 3:22pm glenn:

sure sounds like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm fleep:

@Holly Thanks for the clip, now I have to take very slow cold shower.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Doug Schulkind:

I think I slept with my Complete Hank box for the first few weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Uncle Michael:

Oddly, those tortoises are named Speedy and Jimmy.
  3:29pm A Phlebotomist Writes:

Apple released this Cajun record around 1969.
Avatar 3:29pm Holly in NC:

@UM - Seriously?
Avatar 3:30pm Holly in NC:

Doug Sahm :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm listener james from westwood:

OMG, nearly blacked out laughing at the tortoises....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Uncle Michael:

No, Holly. Not seriously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Matt F:

JLH explains the top-down power structure.
  3:38pm Hackensack Slim:

Avatar 3:38pm Holly in NC:

@UM - I am rather gullible. Thank you for not leading me on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Uncle Michael:

You're welcome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Parq:

Great show as always. Nice to see Uncle Michael here, too. I tried to "tune" in his show at noon. Can you tell I want this week over with?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Uncle Michael:

Parq...please try again tomorrow! And thank you!

And thanks for a really excellent show today, Matt.

Oh, favorite Sam Cooke. Thank you, Matt!
Avatar 3:50pm northguineahills:

Thanks Matt, Good tunes!
Avatar 3:50pm kat330:

Gorrrrgeous, Sam Cooke! I add my thanks to Holly's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Parq:

Right you are, Doug. It could still be Tuesday. (Of course, if it was, I'd at least have your show to look forward to, and Kaminksy's.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Doug Schulkind:

Kaminsky's show this week was stunning. From metal to Lou Harrison to carnatic raga. Wowza!
Avatar 3:56pm Holly in NC:

THIS just popped up in my email:

DUKEPARK] Missing Hipster Poodle boy....
To DUKEPARK@yahoogroups.com
Today at 3:43 PM

My black and white poodle boy Algonquin has somehow gotten away and is (hopefully) roaming the neighborhood. If you've seen him (he's a small black and white poodle with a mohawk and a goatee) please (PLEASE PLEASE!) email us to come and get him or return him to us at 2604 N. Roxboro Street. He just had dental surgery on Wednesday and still needs his antibiotics and pain killers.
Avatar 3:58pm kat330:

A hipster neighborhood you live in, indeed, Holly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm listener james from westwood:

The first (and third) strips in this cartoon go with Holly's video. (Mildly NSFW) www.harkavagrant.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Stanley:

Well that was good. Wonder what's next.
Bye all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Doug Schulkind:

@Holly in NC
I'll send Luna out on a search. Being hopped up on antibiotics and painkillers, she can personally relate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm fleep:

Thanks, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm listener james from westwood:

Correction: First, second, and third.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Uncle Michael:

I'm stickin' to goofballs.
  3:59pm Hackensack Slim:

@Doug Schulkind Doug you'd better get yourself checked. I'm sure tons of people have slept with that Hank Box. All kidding aside, I remember, years ago franticaly searching for "On the Banks of the Old Pontchrtrain" after hearing it on your show. Along with a great stranded in New Orleans story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks a ton, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Doug Schulkind:

@Hackensack Slim
Oh wow! You remember my "broke down on the Ponchartrain Spillway" story. Best nightmare I ever lived.
