  1. Truly “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine” to hear this while the rest of our fellow citizens were piggin’ into oblivion glued to their tv watching The Stupor Bowl! Thanks especially for airing Pete’s “Guantanamera” from Pete & Arlo’s lesser known earlier LIVE recording soon after Spiro Agnew’s resignation for that infelicity with Hefty bags stuffed with cash from the Maryland highway fund kickbacks while he was Governor, and the Carnegie Hall Annual Thanksgiving Concert crowd providing spirited sing-a-long accompaniment.

    On that same early 70’s live recording Arlo does his “Presidential Rag” expressing his humorous surprise at Spiro resigning not long after he’d completed the tune, prompting the reticent protest singer to write more songs like it to see if he could get Nixon to resign too! On that same Live recording Pete reported the news of Chilean bard Victor Jara being beaten to death in the Santiago Stadium of Chile after the first 9-11 the one in 1973 that with Nixon-Kissinger-CIA counsel overthrew democratically elected non-aligned Socialist President Salvador Allende after Washington gave the order to make the “Chilean Economy Scream” with word that Allende wanted to nationalize ITT’s phone monopoly. Hope Pete becomes a very necessary guardian angel of rivers and wayward democracies gone neo-liberal economically imperial from his perch alongside Toshi (and Woody, Leadbelly, Cisco et al) above it all and at peace..

  2. Good to have the stream back so we snowed-in Beavertonians can groove to DETOUR’s worldly and otherworldly vibes. However, today the Last 5 Tunes on the MS Media Player window has been intermittently napping. No Problemo, the Playlist page & Paul’s intros & outros workin, fine, Praise Be!

    Apropos the Dylan cover by the Das Bauls of Bengal India, I could not name it as “Tambourine Man” as I was listening quite rapt by the ankle bells and unfamiliar string instrument. However, most of the times I’ve seen Dylan play I couldn’t figure out it was “Tambourine” until well near the last verses.
    For those who don’t know the pedigree Dylan gained along with wonderful weed from reading those Dylan biographies and his own auto-bio Vol 1 of Chronicles, the Das Bauls go a long ways back with Dylan. They’re in the photo on the cover with Bobby D. of JOHN WESLEY HARDING acoustic 1967 album. They look like American Indians from up around Dylan’s native Minnesota Iron Range, but were actually an itinerant musical group of East Indian Bengalis, generous with the most potent herb the discerning U.S. bard had to then ever chanced to not inhale. Here’s a more recent but still yellowing clip of the Das Baul’s rock royalty pedigree:

    Also tickled to hear Paul & WTMD revive the FCC’s out-Foxed Fairness Doctrine by having Linda Thompson and kith kick back at ex-hubby hash-slinger Richard Thompson’s “Tear Stained Letter”. Veddy diplomatic way of handling Valentine’s Day. Why you ol’ sentimentalist! There’s always some Syd & Nancy for next week’s Valentine’s Daze After…Had never heard the version of “Tear Stained Letter” you played, and while it was Richard singing and identifiably in English, would not have recognized it from where the melody was taken. Thanks and yours sympathetically and empathetically in the blessed drought-relieving snows of 2014 in Cascadiyyah!
