    I know, just thought Swishy could use a little backup as he has been taking the heat solo for a while.

    BTW, I watch Versus for everything else but hockey ;)


    I will do ya all one better. I am reduced to listening to the games on WIP 610 Sports Radio on AM on a little tiny boom box cause I'm too cheap (frugal) to have cable.

    I always think about getting it just for hockey playoffs and then turning it off but it's not economical.

    I have a theory on this that's not necessarily flattering to the audience. Hockey is a skill game but has been not generally percieved as one by the North American audience...and they don't want it that way. There's a reason the "Broadstreet Bullies" are legendary and the influx of European talent hasn't had the desired effect unless you consider acceptance by the PTA moms of America success.

    I'm pretty sure if you were watching this live you remember where you were that night, whether you were truly invested in either team...

    My disks finally arrived in yesterday's mail.

    I don't understand why I can order stuff from Amazon.com and it arrives in under a week, yet stuff from the members of this board frequently takes two to three weeks to arrive.

    I'm looking forward to spinning the not-so-mysterious-anymore disk as well as the additional goodies. :)

    Thanks for goodies 'sticks. I've never been a big fan of the CJs, but to be fair I've never given them a fair shot. I don't mind this disk so much, there's some nice stuff on it. But I see myself spinning this as background music, not something that I'd put on for the sake of really listening to.

    I liked the Richard Hawley quite a bit. Its something different from my usual fare and, again, not something that I can see myself spinning regularly but maybe nice when relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine.

    I've been spinning it at work and it's a good disk to clear my head to.

    Thanks!

    Je suis en retard. I have been enjoying my discs for a while. I have always loved Margo's voice so I loved the disc and included it with my other CJ discs. 'Cause Cheap Is How I Feel!

    Sticks My Man,

    Just got your disks, great stuff. Right up my alley.:thumbsup:

    Gotta say I likes da Ben Harper and da NO Social club disks the best. Funny that Dr.John has been on a bit of a renaissance around here lately anyway.:1:

    The CJ certainly is a different take on some old blues classics. I kept on wanting to turn the speed up a bit tho. Nice late night tunes.Haven't had a chance to really listen to the Hayward Williams but sounds good the little I heard so far.

    You da man Bobby.

    Kewl. I'm glad you posted...despite my glib response I was starting to worry 'bout your Royal Mounted Dog 'n' Pony Show losing everything.

    I suppose one could say Dr. John is on the comeback but he never really faded in this household. Creole Moon and Gumbo get some serious play. I kinda guessed on the Harper but I'm glad to hear ya liked that too.
