December 16, 2007

Hey All,

As I mentioned on today's show, I'm trying to put together a show full of folkish songs about places like bars, diners, barbershops, etc--the kinds of places sociologist Ray Oldenburg defines as third places. Please send anything that comes to mind to Thanks!

The playlist for the 16th went like this...

1) Peter Ostroushko; Bemidji Blues; Postcards

2) Carrie Newcomer; Betty's Diner; Regulars & Refugees
3) Steve Goodman; The One That Got Away; Live Wire
4) Fred Eaglesmith; Milly's Cafe; Milly's Cafe

5) Emmylou Harris; Silent Night; Light of the Stable
6) John Prine; Christmas in Prison; Great Days
7) Emmylou Harris; Light of the Stable; Light of the Stable

8) Eric Anderson; Eyes of the Immigrant; You Can't Relive the Past
9) Steve Earle; City of Immigrants; Washington Square Serenade
10) Tom Russell; Who's Gonna Build Your Wall; Wounded Heart of America

**I try to avoid direct political commentary on the show and blog, but something tells me Chuck Norris doesn't have all the answers when it comes to immigration. Just a thought, but...

11) Keith Sykes; It Just Don't Get No Better Than This; Let It Roll
12) Chris Knight; Bring the Harvest Home; Chris Knight
13) Nitty Gritty Dirt Band; Keep on the Sunny Side; Will the Circle be Unbroken

Clay Eals said... to see your post mentioning "The One That Got Away" and Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in an eight-year project of mine that has come to fruition -- an 800-page biography of Goodman, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the origin and frustrating release history of Goodman's duet with Nicolette Larson on "The One That Got Away." Please check my Internet site below for more info on the book. Just trying to spread the word. Feel free to do the same!
