  1. Yep! I've listened to not only many of the other shows, but both parts of the one with Mr.Crumb. They are well worth the listen/looksy (hey, that's a word)!!! It has been raining here, so these came at a good time!! I also caught John playing a vagabond Stella on Youtube; I used to have one that looked exactly like his, although mine didn't play as well (I turned it into strictly a slide then gave it to a friend who collects parlor guitars).

    Anyway, Jingles enjoyed the shows, as well. He can be so sweet then turn on a time, for some reason; he's such a crotchety old coot sometimes! If he wasn't so adorable I'd get somebody else to empty his drool buckets...oh, well, we all get old I guess. For example, I had him reminiscing about his own musical career in Vaudeville, Burlesque, and his years in the Poconos and the Catskills with The Burltone Orchestra. He was singing along with some of the old tunes on John's show, and he even went over to the piano and did an impromptu stride ditty; it was so cool! Then, inexplicably, he went into a fog and began muttering something about how he had never been so disappointed and hurt as the day Tallulah Bankhead broke off their engagement and told him she was lesbian! After that, I couldn't even get him to eat his pickled garlic he loves so much!

    P.S.-Actually, I'm glad to hear you're not going to London! I'm sick of hearing about the Olympics already...such an anachronistic display of nationalistic pride that means absolutely nothing, not to mention all of the mini-controversies; I can't even listen to NPR without hearing about the whole thing ad nauseam!
