* Weenie's CD!

I saw Johnny Shines with Robert Lockwood in London many years ago - a two night stint. At the end of the second night, some fool in the audience shouts, "Johnny Shines, you are a sexist!" Shines says, "What?" Guy repeats it. Shines says, "Texas? I don't know nothing about Texas." Collapse of interlocutor - Johnny Shines, by Chris Smith on prewarblues list, Bunker Hill, also present, dates it Sunday 28th October 1979

Hello slack... wondering about requesting some CDs be added.  I think some Weenie listeners would be interested in hearing the 2 CDs dedicated to fiddling blues put out by "Old Hat".   There are wonderful examples of some of the great fiddlers from the pre-war era.  These are still available at Elderly...

Hi FB,

If you are talking about "Violin Sing the Blues For Me" and "Folks, He Sure Do Pull Some Bow!"  --- those have been on the Juke for some time.  ;)

Cheers,

Hello All,

I've overhauled the Juke's scheduling system in an attempt to make scheduled events more reliable and easier to manage.  I made many changes, so there are bound to be some configuration errors. You can help keep an eye on running events and report any you see that look out of place or not running at all.  I've added a "Now Playing" header to the Juke Playing page that will (or should) list what program or show what event the Juke is running.  The Juke should be running events according to this Schedule, otherwise it should be "Regular Rotation".  I've also made some small adjustments to the schedule itself:

Religious and Gospel' - from two hours to one hour (each slot)
Moved 'Rare and Un-Reissued' from Tuesday to Saturday
Wednesday 'Weenie Hour' shows are now randomly selected

Cheers,
Slack

Hello All,

While digitizing these LP's (the previous post and this one) I made note that track # _ on LP ______ had a bad skip(at least a three-fer skip).  I was then going to remove the skip when cutting apart the tracks.  Well, I've lost the note and haven't the foggiest idea where that skip is.  So!

If you find the skip and report it here, you will receive a couple of fabulous Weenie Case Stickers And bonus gift of a just-in-time-for-summer - Weenie Fly Swatter.   :D

Hi all,
Wow, there are some heavy hitters in the latest batch of tunes added to the Juke.  Some great songs from relatively lesser known people, too.  Arthur Crudup's "If I Get Lucky" has a great screamy vocal, and his "Mean Old 'Frisco" has a wonderful comping chord up the neck that I heard Louisiana Red use a couple of years ago.  Charlie Pickett's "Down The Highway" is a real one-of-a-kind number, too, with singing right on top of the melody phrased in the guitar and an almost flamenco-ish sounding guitar part.  Charlie Lincoln's "My Wife Drove Me From My Door"  is really beautiful, too, not at all in the mode you might expect from the guy with the most infectious laugh in the Blues; it's a sad song, and if you like twelve-string played in Spanish, it's pretty hard to beat.  Then there's the Peg Leg Howell tunes, including the great "Coal Man Blues".  I remember getting this set when it first came out and I was really wowed by it.  There's lots to listen to and enjoy on "The Rural Blues".
All best,
Johnm

The skip is on Try That Thing from the Peg Leg Howell and His Gang LP.  Your memory is accurate in one respect:  there are 3 consecutive skips.
