Is there a national network programing for PBS?   I just assumed that every local station had different programs and times...

All of Emmy Lou Harris's  albums from the early 70's to early 80's are great.She has a great voice and a great eye in putting together those albums.Pancho&Lefty,Beneath Still Waters,Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town,etc,etc.

P.S. Those were song titles.The albums were ,Luxury Liner,Elite Hotel,Blue Kentucky Girl(my fave), Roses in the Snow, and Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town. I converted frat brothers to Emmy Lou who had never heard of her before.

 Trojanhorse,Regarding PBS A majority of the stations share prime time programs but I notice your Orange County PBS runs different shows than KCET up the road in Los Angeles.That said I watch the Orange County station as much or more than KCET.

lulu--when the clarinet part comes in at the end of Jerusalem Tomorrow, it gets me every time. Not many pieces of music make me moist, but that one does. Another is Sunrise, Sunset. Old softie,  me.

On the topic of NPR, go to www.npr.org.

Anyone who can convert a frat house to emmylou has amazing powers of persuasion or is the baddest ass on the block.

maybe that's why I assumed that they all ran their own programming independently.  THese two rarely have the same show on at the same time...

I've been going through a collection of 1500 plus LP'S I have looking for ones in decent shape to take to my brothers in San Diego to transfer some of the songs.He just got one of those turntables you plug into computer and transfer.I found an album "The Kenny Rankin Album" from the late 70's that I had forgotten about.Though I wasn't a huge fan this album is a gem.Roomates on Cape Cod and Frat Bros used to play this all the time after they heard it.He does a great version of"Groovin" on it and almost every song is a keeper.I also found a bootleg Neil Young live from way back on Zerox Records that has a nice version of "Sugar Mountain".

They are selling at Costco for about $125.


I don't think I have 1500 LPs, but probably about 1,000...   I was an Album Rock DJ in the late 70s

My brother (he's younger than me) and I shared a record collection and we had some decent stuff. He sold our entire collection to some used record store in Worcester, MA for beer money back in the eighties. The collection was nothing special, but it did have the original US version of Meet the Beatles and the Mystery Tour album with the booklet. For some reason the Beatles never put the booklet in the disc version. I miss those.

On another note, I contend that if you're a musician, wearing your group's t-shirt is uncool.

And if the t-shirt is a tank top, it's even more uncool.

And if you're wearing a mullet while wearing said t-shirt, then your uncoolness may be affecting your social life.

Speaking of which, I caught an old video by the Alarm last night.




Kidding; I actually liked those guys. I heard Mike Peters has cancer; I hope he's ok.

That may be a part of it, but Klezemer does not usually have that effect on me. Just something about those particular songs.

mad--the song is "Jerusalem Tomorrow" by Emmylou Harris on her Cowgirl's Prayer album. At the very end a clarinet appears and has a strong klezmer feel to it.

I know your response already but I was asked by several people for you to come back.  I'm not sure I want to but I was asked to relay that message by people who do care and not the other idiots.

FYI

I haven't been posting there, except to say how rotten they were/are and how closed they are.
