Avatar 4:52pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Good evening Irene, heel one and all, a double helping of the awesome you this week, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Irene Trudel:

HA! Still number one on the playlist, @Sean! Welcome!
Avatar 5:02pm StringOFperils:

Umm, I think these people know how to play. Woo. Sweet intro to the show, Irene. (Hand on heart.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm doctorjazz:

Hi, Irene, nice Drifters opening track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm coelacanth∅:

hi Irene hi folks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Irene Trudel:

Indeed, @StringOFperils! When Gina asked me to fill in, Continental Drifters suddenly popped into my head. Great tune.
Avatar 5:04pm Sean in Bristol UK:

WOW! What a start, absolutely loving this track.
Avatar 5:04pm Julie P.:

Greetings, Irene and company. Love this opener!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Irene Trudel:

Hey doctorjazz, coelacanth∅ and Julie P. I certainly can't make it by myself
Avatar 5:09pm Julie P.:

Irene, we all need somebody to lean on, as Bill Withers said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Irene Trudel:

Gonna keep the musical offerings in a similar vein to Gina's. Lots of great singer/songwriters coming up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Irene Trudel:

So true, @Julie P.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm doctorjazz:

RT, one of my favs (and one of my favorite guitar players).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy Saturday, Irene and Irene fans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm doctorjazz:

Digging the Singe-Songwriter Matinee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm doctorjazz:

Ahhh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Irene Trudel:

Mine too, @doctorjazz. I've seen him so many times, and was fortinate to engineer a couple of sessions with him for Soundcheck (with his engineer, Simon Tassano looking over my shoulder approvingly).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Irene Trudel:

Hiya @ Doug!
Avatar 5:19pm StringOFperils:

I remember when I used to think this was about someone else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm doctorjazz:

Seen RT many times too, the last time solo request show at The City Winery. Got to interview him once with a friend who used to write for Guitar World Magazine...he's a real sweetie! (Jealous of the Soundcheck sessions, but then, there are likely many, many of those sessions I'd have loved to have been a fly on the wall...)
Avatar 5:21pm Julie P.:

Wonderful John Prine track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Gina Bacon:

Happy Saturday!! Thank you, Irene!! ❤️
Avatar 5:28pm Julie P.:

Hey Gina! How is the move going?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Julie! The worst is over, thankfully! Just finished for today, and now I have to figure out where everything is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Gina Bacon:

This is the perfect antidote!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm doctorjazz:

Moving is tough, glad the worst is over Gina!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Irene Trudel:

So glad to hear, @Gina!
Avatar 5:33pm Julie P.:

Gina. glad it went well! And as you said, now comes the fun part!
  5:34pm CC:

Happy Someday Saturday, y'all...sounding great Irene..!.. take a little break Gina cheers y'all!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Gina Bacon:

This is beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Irene Trudel:

Gabriel Kahane is a phenomenal songwriter! I love his voice and he writes some very intimate and at times humorous songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm dutchtheo:

Hello in there, Irene, Gina,Doug and intercontinental drifters
Avatar 5:44pm Julie P.:

This is some amazing pickin' here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks CC! Welcome! And 'hi' to you, @dutchtheo.
Avatar 5:59pm Julie P.:

Unfortunately I have to leave for now, but I really enjoyed the tunes, Irene! See all you folks later . . . stay safe!
  6:01pm CC:

Mmmm...nice one!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Irene Trudel:

Glad you could join us @Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Gina Bacon:

Bye Julie!
Avatar 6:03pm Sean in Bristol UK:

love this album, thank you, Irene for pointing the way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Sean! I find more to love about it each time I listen.
Avatar 6:08pm gongoleer:

Hello Irene and all listeners. Coming at you from So. Vermont a bit late but better late than not at all. Hope you had good week. Sweet sounds to top it off. Thank you, Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Irene Trudel:

Better later than never, @Gongoleer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm doctorjazz:

Townes! Ahhh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Hi, Irene! Been listening since we got home a little after the show began but only now jumping on the comments. x
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Irene Trudel:

Sometimes good listening is all you need, Summer and Michael and Sylvia.
Avatar 6:21pm StringOFperils:

Cool set. Takes ya places. I wonder how Mark Eitzel's doing these days. I've lost the thread....
Avatar 6:21pm gongoleer:

I saw Townes twice; once in NYC way back in late 60's and in late 70's at Lebanon, NH opera house. Had everyone mesmerized with his music and lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm doctorjazz:

Got to see Townes only once, the old Bottom Line in NYC. Was a great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Irene Trudel:

@StringOFperils, I was wondering the same about Mark. I love his music and voice. He was on my WFMU show a couple of times years ago. Sweet guy but shy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Irene Trudel:

I never had the chance to see Townes. Sad about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Gina Bacon:

I never did either.
Avatar 6:26pm gongoleer:

@ doctorjazz, you're making me nostalgic for my stint in NYC and seeing so many at The Bottom Line. Was a very cool venue. Just don't make them like that anymore, do they!
Avatar 6:28pm StringOFperils:

If time travel is ever invented, we'll chip in and buy you two tickets, because Townes had some magic.
Avatar 6:31pm gongoleer:

Have you got his Venus In Cancer lp?
Avatar 6:32pm StringOFperils:

I love that LP cover....some kind of black magick imagery on that. So weird.
Avatar 6:34pm gongoleer:

@StringOFperils: Ur right. Townes's magic was spellbinding. Which lp u talking about? Basho or Townes? Must be Basho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Irene Trudel:

@gongoleer, unfortunately not. I think I have one other album and a great compilation called "Guitar Soli," which is out of print.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Irene Trudel:

@StringOFperils, some nice sunset and sky on that Basho cover.
Avatar 6:35pm StringOFperils:

Yes, Basho....I've never really looked into his beliefs....maybe it was just Fahey, and Takoma....Americana surrealism
Avatar 6:35pm gongoleer:

I'll send copy to you, Irene.
Avatar 6:37pm gongoleer:

Better yet; will send lp. Email your mailing address and will get it out soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks @gongoleer! I'll email you after the show.
Avatar 6:39pm gongoleer:

Ok. Great. I'm downsizing collection so good to know it will have good home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Gina Bacon:

I'm sitting on my new back porch listening to this and the birdies. What a treat!
Avatar 6:42pm StringOFperils:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Irene Trudel:

Lovely Gina!
Avatar 6:42pm gongoleer:

@Gina: And I'm on my deck listening to their cousins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm doctorjazz:

Grilling company music here.
(Should start downsizing collection, but seems to be always going in the other direction...)
Avatar 6:45pm northguineahills:

Glenn Jones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Gina Bacon:

Nice, gongoleer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Irene Trudel:

Yes northguineahills! Glenn is another fave of mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Pretty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Irene Trudel:

Glad some of you have porches and yards to hang out in. Sadly, there's no porch or even rooftop access in my NYC apartment. Enjoy for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Gina Bacon:

I should let you all know that I've got Crystal Bowersox as my call-in guest next week! She's got a new song that I'm actually singing on (in the chorus, with lots of other women), and an album on the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Gina Bacon:

I still miss NYC, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Gina Bacon:

I hear I may be facing quarantine if I visit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

I still miss NYC, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Gina Bacon:

It's forever, I think, Doug!
Avatar 6:51pm northguineahills:

One artist I discovered lately due to the History of the Copts podcast, is Uncle Turtle, whose name is most likely a nod to Takoma Recs (due to its icon) as to it's Fahey-esque influence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Irene Trudel:

I still miss NYC, Gina and Doug! It is starting to come back slowly. But it's still very surreal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Gina Bacon:

I get disoriented when I visit...so many landmarks are gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Irene Trudel:

Gina, Thanks for the tip about Crystal! I must tune in. northguineahills, thanks for the tip about Uncle Turtle.
Avatar 6:53pm northguineahills:

I, too, miss NYC. I was about drive to NYC this last week, even though I technically have residence there, I have a FL license and plates, so, I can't afford to quarentine for 14 days (I have a job starting soonish and my partner would kill me w/in 14 days).
  6:53pm CC:

We're just looking out the window at the hazy Saharan dusty sky...this music is kind of mesmerizing... time for another beer!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Gina Bacon:

This is so relaxing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm doctorjazz:

Got some local craft beer for the burgers!
Avatar 6:54pm StringOFperils:

OHH. One of my fave records of all time !! Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Doug Schulkind:

OK, crying now.
Avatar 6:55pm northguineahills:

well, CC said it's time for another beer, so.....(vary hazy o'er here as well).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm doctorjazz:

Great Roches track (saw them so many times way back when, think I was a wannabe groupie...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Gina Bacon:

Wow, this brings back memories!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Gina Bacon:

Thank you so much, Irene! What a wonderful show! ❤️
Avatar 6:56pm StringOFperils:

Bought this in Minneapolis, on a road trip, the day it came out. I think I probably had the first copy in Canada.
Avatar 6:57pm northguineahills:

This was great Irene, Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Irene Trudel:

Same here doctorjazz. I saw a great memorial that Suzzy, friends and family staged in memory of Maggie last year. I wish Terre and Suzzy still spoke to each other.Terre has performed at a couple of Richard Barone showcases recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks everybody for listening in today! Enjoy your Saturday night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm doctorjazz:

Mr Fripp...
Avatar 6:58pm gongoleer:

@Irene: When this cover things is eventually over, you come visit me in Vt.
  6:58pm CC:

Ya did good, Irene!!!... thanks for sharing...cheers everybody!!
Avatar 6:59pm gongoleer:

I meant covid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Still crying, though. These women always make me weep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm WR:

Hi folks, have been listening as we eat take out Thai from our local fave place that had been totally closed for over 2 months so we were afraid they were gone forever, and enjoying the music accompaniment. Great show Irene. Laters all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Irene, loved the show!
Avatar 7:00pm StringOFperils:

Thx for the great show!
Avatar 7:02pm gongoleer:

Tnx Irene. Enjoyed every minute of last hour. See you Monday.
