Hey everybody
Brian D 3:05:48 PM
hello Dylan
Dylan (host) 3:07:14 PM
Donovan will played in this show
Brian D 3:09:58 PM
Electric sitar fills

Peppermint Pig 3:10:30 PM
This is one of my favorite Joan Baez tracks!!
Brian D 3:10:36 PM
Cool look forward to Donovan
Peppermint Pig 3:11:06 PM
Dylan have you heard "Geordie"? The version from the album "First Ten Years"?
Dylan (host) 3:12:27 PM
Never heard it but I think I've seen it on spotify
Peppermint Pig 3:14:17 PM
It's an old English folk song dating back to 17th century
Mark 3:16:25 PM
Consider mimi baez & richard farina for future shows / two that were lost way too early :(
esoterica 3:37:05 PM
hi, dylan and eveyone. like this old time tune. and yes, you are fun to talk to!
Mark 3:39:26 PM
Hi esoterica ur familiar w richard & Mimi ? : maybe put on ur playlist !
Brian D 3:41:03 PM
Great set loving the old recordings
Dylan (host) 3:43:41 PM
I like old stuff, that's why it's in the title
esoterica 3:44:05 PM
true! but sutton is not old:).
Dylan (host) 3:44:14 PM
Maybe for my last show I could get someone to come in with wax cylinders
esoterica 3:44:31 PM
yes! I'm a boradway baby myself!
esoterica 3:45:47 PM
and duly noted, mark. why are you thinking richard and mini (bc dylan played baez?).
Dylan (host) 3:45:49 PM
In just like musicals that have a basic but convoluted plot involving dumb rich people. I don't need a long story about bullying where everything is over pronounced
esoterica 3:46:40 PM
have you ever seen that cole porter biopic with kevin kline?
Dylan (host) 3:47:08 PM
I've only seen the one from the forties where they never acknowledge he's gay
Brian D 3:47:55 PM
David Hajdu's book Positively 4th Street has some great details on Richard and Mimi Farina
Brian D 3:49:14 PM
1 of the most famous moments in recorded music here
Krista 3:49:16 PM
They do a great cover of blood red roses
esoterica 3:52:38 PM
the kevin kline pic def does (but again casts a straight actor to play a gay man). and bri... i will check out that book
Brian D 3:52:47 PM
A great WPRB moment: late night drive home and listening to Liz Taylor & Richard Burton argue. And I realize after 5 to 10 minutes oh they are playing the entire Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf play on LP! I gotta watch that again
esoterica 3:53:04 PM
wow!
Brian D 3:54:32 PM
And a few years later i heard prb play this great Irish play. Again on the ride home at night. Makes me want to stay in the car....
Dylan (host) 3:55:13 PM
It's a lot of fun to just play weird unusual stuff on WPRB.
Brian D 3:56:00 PM
Yes! Just mentioned Thundercat in chat earlier
Dylan (host) 3:57:51 PM
Thundercat!
Bud Burroughs 3:59:33 PM
Thundercat may not be weird or old, but he's pretty damn good!
Dylan (host) 4:00:01 PM
He's pretty weird
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:00:40 PM
States of confusion?
Dylan (host) 4:01:11 PM
He's got adult swim energy
Bud Burroughs 4:01:51 PM
I guess so, but it's the best kind of weird.
Brian D 4:02:03 PM
Themes: Fabric. Tools. Songs that start with "Why...?" Or "How...?"
Dylan (host) 4:03:11 PM
*Shrug emoji*
Dylan (host) 4:05:00 PM
Where should I pick up dinner?
Brian D 4:05:21 PM
Dinner... there's a theme!
Dylan (host) 4:05:45 PM
I think next week we're going to try bad celebrity covers
Brian D 4:05:56 PM
Oh yes!
esoterica 4:06:44 PM
yes! Telly Savalas doing "If" by Bread was amazing, which DJ MIke made me aware of
Brian D 4:07:08 PM

Dylan (host) 4:08:18 PM
Andy Griffith has a whole folk album
Brian D 4:11:53 PM
Yailhousa Rocka by that Dutch director... is it Paul van der Hoeven?
Krista 4:12:22 PM
Robert mitchum has a calypso album
Brian D 4:12:35 PM
Maybe that was not officially released... but i heard it. Wonderfully bad.
Mark 4:12:38 PM
@esoterica farina & Mimi were much more interesting couple than dylan & her sister Joan; farina many say was a much smarter Dylan but died very young he was Pynchon best friend / gravity rainbow dedicated to him
Dylan (host) 4:13:04 PM
Who thought Robert Mitchum Calypso was a good idea?
Mark 4:14:23 PM
Oh I just see Brian mentioned positively 4th / yeah interesting stuff in there
Dylan (host) 4:17:33 PM
I just learned that the Dora the Explorer movie has an acid trip scene.
esoterica 4:17:51 PM
whhhhaaatttt? really?
esoterica 4:19:15 PM
love robert mitchum tho, but he is too menacing in night of the hunter for calypso...
Dylan (host) 4:19:15 PM
YES.
Dylan (host) 4:19:58 PM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mDtsn0yrsA
Dylan (host) 4:22:22 PM
I'm sorry that I got distracted by acid trip dora, back to your regularly scheduled programming
esoterica 4:23:19 PM
that is fantastic, dylan!
Brian D 4:24:38 PM
Courting was dangerous back in the day...
Dylan (host) 4:25:12 PM
Basically all these songs are about killing your girlfriend when she get's pregnant.
Dylan (host) 4:29:38 PM
Early America is juts generally or horrible place.
Brian D 4:31:37 PM
And the portions were so small
Peppermint Pig 4:35:59 PM
YESSSS Katya & Trixie!!!
Peppermint Pig 4:36:54 PM
If they weren't so wildly inappropriate for radio all the time, I would love to make some station IDs featuring them...
Krista 4:37:24 PM
Night of the Hunter is SUCH a creepy movie @esoterica!
Brian D 4:40:16 PM
Great choice here! Thanks
Dylan (host) 4:42:03 PM
The one I made is the one with "ThanksLIVING!!!"
Mark 4:43:37 PM
Agree on Donovan/ Jeff beck backing :)
esoterica 4:46:18 PM
totally, krista!
Peppermint Pig 4:48:52 PM
@dylan oh, honey....
Peppermint Pig 4:49:23 PM
@esoterica @Krista do you know if Night of the Hunter is streaming anywhere? Just read the plot and I am... intrigued
Peppermint Pig 4:49:38 PM
hesitant but intrigued
Brian D 4:52:14 PM
Ba RABBA jaggle
esoterica 4:53:30 PM
