Thanks Suzy - and I agree, it is a nice mix, occasionally selection by committee works!  ;D

A juke listener posted this on the LoudCity page:

Dakota Lee N Wes
This station is the best thing on the internet for me.
Keep streaming the classic country blues! I don't know who is responsible for this sound coming through my speakers off this site, but you're my hero, Sir and I for one salute you! :)

I replied:
The weenie campbell forum pleads guilty, see http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?page=page4243 and please check out the forum for endless discussion of the minutiae of country blues playing, history and general appreciation.

A few comments.

You don't think we've been obsolesced by the new iTunes Radio?

Is obsolesced an actual word?

We need to add Weeniepedia to the 'About' page - it's only been up for several years...

It's really nice to get such positive feedback!

Re juke obsolescence, nah.

I've had the juke on for a while now after spending the morning listening to iTunes Delta Blues. For the hardcore country blues aficionado iTunes doesn't come close. By any measure the juke has so much more depth. I see the iTunes channel as a very positive development though since it may get many more people interested in the genre, and the selections ain't half bad, while limited. I checked back earlier and was already getting more repeats, that may improve over time of course.

Then I spent the afternoon trying to get my National to sound like Robert Petway's. Cheryl's out of town, obviously!  :D

It was a rhetorical/smart-ass question.

Surface noise is our competitive edge -- no one else will play "whupped" 78's ... a few of which even I find hard to listen to!   :P

And it was a rhetorical answer, too!

Plus we can't afford to drop the juke revenue stream, which must run into the 10's of dollars annually.

Indeed, those 10's of dollars fund programs like "Classic Country Blues" hand picked by weenies --- which just started!   :P

I'd like to add my appreciation for the Juke, the super fabulous imitated but never equalled Juke-o- potomus!
What internet radio COULD be if it were, well.... the Weenie Juke. Endless thanks for this great thing!

Would also like to give my thanks and appreciation to guys who put the Juke together.  And thanks to the Juke for introducing me to the Harlem Hamfats!

Not hard -- you've just to crush your resonator around the sides so it's caved in a bit. Then belt hell out of the guitar to compensate for the munted cone. (And my regards to Cheryl, too.)
