Never skip spuds, Victoria.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:22:16 AM
Really enjoyed the set of British Isles traditional music. Perfect for a rainy Thursday morning! I cain near smell a bonny warm peat fire burnin' in tha hearth! :-))
sara (host) 9:24:57 AM
Happy to hear that richard!! It completely matches today's weather (I totally planned that...). Maybe it makes sense given the climate of the british isles?
Ambrose Hughes 9:26:14 AM
@Richard, I'm conjuring that up and it feels lovely.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:30:05 AM
@ sara (host) Very British weather, as I know from many visits to Yorkshire & the Scotland Highlands.
Christine 🦊 9:30:14 AM
I'm having a mug of black tea in the spirit of this set.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:30:39 AM
@ Ambrose Hughes Brilliant!
Ambrose Hughes 9:33:53 AM
@Christine, Barry's?
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:41:49 AM
The Incredible String Band! I was just going to request something off theirs! Bless ya, lass!
Christine 🦊 9:44:03 AM
@Bo, sadly, not Barry's tea. ☘️
The T Man 9:44:20 AM
First time hearing your show, I love the genre! Is it like this every show? I also honestly love hearing weather reports from around the world.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:44:29 AM
"Wee Tam" and its simultaneously-released sister album "The Big Huge" are sooooo good, IMHO masterpieces.
Ambrose Hughes 9:45:48 AM
@Christine, Barry's Gold is the one for me.
sara (host) 9:48:02 AM
@richard sometimes I think there's such thing as wprb telepathy
Christine 🦊 9:49:25 AM
We are one big (telepathic) family...
Christine 🦊 9:50:01 AM
@Bo, I'll look for Barry's Gold & report back.
sara (host) 9:50:19 AM
@tman Hi! I like to do dives into specific genres from time to time. I usually play whatever's on my mind, and lately it's been british folk music. happy to be here with you today
Ambrose Hughes 9:52:37 AM
@Christine, eagerly awaiting the tea report πŸ˜‰
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:53:52 AM
Hey, Sara, I don't know if anyone has complimented you yet on using the photo of the late, great TV weatherman Willard Scott. But if not ... it's awesomely appropriate! ;-))
The T Man 9:54:11 AM
@Sara I’ll check back for more then. These songs put me in the mind of Paddy Lay Back from the album Steady as She Goes. Sea shanties definitely fit the weather today.
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:55:00 AM
I don't remember Willard's cat, but ... it's pretty cool, too.
Christine 🦊 9:57:40 AM
Thank you, Sara! πŸ™ Such atmospheric, historic music for a rainy morning. Nice chatting with everybody!
Ambrose Hughes 9:58:06 AM
Thank you Sara, best of luck with future shows!
Ambrose Hughes 9:59:34 AM
@Christine, same to you.
sara (host) 10:19:22 AM
