With Krista

Weaseling our way into Monday

Spotlight on: an interesting weasel

Small bit about gandy dancers and the throwaway comment that led me down a rabbithole about that style of music.

Good morning! The geese and DJs are out this morning, honking. A wonderful way to wake!
Christine 🦊 7:58:34 AM
Good morning, Krista 🌄 Let the geese honk and let the music play!
Krista (host) 7:58:56 AM
Hi Christine!
Krista (host) 8:02:34 AM
It's such a beautiful morning out there, the 60 F has me feeling all crisp and refreshed
Christine 🦊 8:04:58 AM
It is definitely refreshing. Especially now that we're in August.
Brian D 8:16:37 AM
For that flamenco piece, the artist was Manitas de Plata a famous flamenco gypsy guitarist. "FACE A" just means ' side A ' probably in French due to the record label. Delta de Sel is the film title
Krista (host) 8:17:18 AM
Ah Great, thanks Brian, I'll change it
Brian D 8:17:51 AM
Track title is also Delta de Sel. Both sides
Brian D 8:20:40 AM
"Little Hands of Silver" the nickname of Ricardo Baliardo . Born in France but associated much w Spain. Relative to the members of Gypsy Kings.
Brian D 8:24:08 AM
A master of flamenco gtr.
Krista (host) 8:26:00 AM
I'm always only skimming the surface, everywhere I turn there's another exciting guitarist with a discography I haven't dug into!
Christine 🦊 8:28:51 AM
The Halluci Nation track was wild. Thanks for playing it! I hadn't known of Tanya Tagaq or Halluci Nation previously.
Elliot 8:32:01 AM
Croatian pop brings me out of the woodwork

Big Stoat. Sounds like a town in Montana

Christine 🦊 8:54:30 AM
Hey Hanna, Elliot, Tyler 👋
Krista (host) 8:54:33 AM
Hey Tyler! I love Gogol Bordello. I think I can hear some definite influences for them in the music of Darko Rundek
Brian D 8:55:15 AM
That Eugene of Gogol B documentary was a fun ride
Richard from Rocky Hill 8:57:02 AM
I won't "weasel around" about it -- another great show, Krista. Thanks!
Krista (host) 9:00:31 AM
Hey Richard, thanks for the kind words, hope you learned someting about weasels today
Krista (host) 9:01:10 AM
Hanna! if you're still here, what's the best food you've eaten on your trip?? (not a play on your homeland's name, just an eternal curiosity for finding out what people are eating)
Brian D 9:06:23 AM
The "Fourteeners". Amazing

Brian D 9:09:05 AM
Great memories of mom's car fm radio and mom's record collection. I heard a lot of John and Willie.

Brian D 9:11:16 AM
Love them both .
Krista (host) 9:12:28 AM
I'm savoring each Prine album, I had been "saving" some for "hard times" that I wouldn't listen to so I had something to look forward to no matter what, but I realized that's the sonic equivalent of saving the good china for guests
Krista (host) 9:13:01 AM
plus I hear something new every time anyway, the songs hit differently at each age
Brian D 9:15:09 AM
Hearing certain songs on certain road trips... i heard John Prine's "The Bottomless Lake" live version with a great talk intro as only John could do. It completes the whole thing. Heard it on some independent radio station in New England or NY State. Riding on back roads... perfect
Brian D 9:16:57 AM
Not to be confused with his other lake song Lake Marie (the one w the... standing by peaceful waters... chorus). Another great one
Krista (host) 9:21:14 AM
for many years, before I knew the lyrics, I thought Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow) was "Lake of Sorrow"
Krista (host) 9:22:49 AM
context clues would point to a chain with "wrapped up in your chain of sorrow" but being wrapped up in a lake of sorrow seemed another lake in the great lakes of hell tour begun in the lake of fire by meat puppets
Krista (host) 9:25:08 AM
The radio is a perfect medium on road trips. I had my own moment the other night driving home late at night through Hunterdon County, listening to Mike Hunter's show. Unearthly sounds through the warm crackle of my car, worrying I would be the next Sleepy Hollow victim
Krista (host) 9:25:38 AM

not the top meal of the trip....itll have to be , every meal i had in transylvania. stuffed cabbage, bean soup. overwhelmed
hannnnna 9:39:03 AM
is this the eastern europe lee hazelwood, his voice is silky
Krista (host) 9:41:58 AM
Ivo Robic was a Croatian superstar
Krista (host) 9:42:47 AM
he also had hits in German and performed a syrupy style of music called "schlager"
Krista (host) 9:44:48 AM
a real banger of a schlager is his "Silent Sail of My Yearnings". The name alone is swoonworthy
hannnnna 9:46:10 AM
hungarian language has adopted the word schlager to mean Pop Hit
Krista (host) 9:47:41 AM
oh that's definitely a subset of schlagers
Krista (host) 9:48:28 AM
maybe even the main set. think full pop orchestra with happy lyrics from the 60s and beyond
Krista (host) 9:49:19 AM
but sometimes the lyrics take a turn into drama, which is my favorite
Brian D 10:00:00 AM
Have a great day ! Loved the show Krista
Krista (host) 10:00:14 AM
Thanks Brian, you have a good day, too!
