I have been trying and trying to verify this, but here goes.

Supposedly, so I'm told by my staff who should know, tomorrow at 6 p.m. MDT Mr. Kendall Morse and Mr. Bob Nelson will be on KISU-FM (www.kisu.org). They will be interviewed seperately, as the world could not take them both at the same time.

I can't swear to it because my staff didn't tell me that this was really going to happen, but it's suppose to. I've waited until now to announce it because I've been trying to find out if it really supposed to happen tomorrow, June 8.

That's at 8 p.m. EDT, 7 p.m. CDT, 6 p.m. MDT, 5 p.m. PDT, 4 p.m. ADT, and 0100 June 9 for you UKers. Everyone else has to figure it out for themselves.

www.kisu.org.

Pick from the menu on the page about the programs currently being broadcast.

Do not try to call in questions, as the interviews are taped to remove pauses, coughing spells, and any speck of Truth no matter how small.

Anyway, this is what's SUPPOSED to happen. But I'm the Library Director, so I don't know nothing and I just do what the staff tells me to do.

At the very least you'll hear JA Jance and Nancy Pearl.

Thanks for the reminder. I'll be there.

In any case, I've heard Nancy Pearl a lot on KUOW-FM (she's kind of a kick), the local NPR affiliate, and I've met J. A. Jance a couple of times. I enjoy her mysteries (some set in Seattle, some in Arizona).

Hoping that Bob and Kendall will be on, but in any case, I'll be there with my ears hanging out.

Hey Rapaire ... I can understand your frustration. As a director it's your job to set the policy and then pray, on bended knee, that everyone else will follow through faithfully. Heck ... I've had three children based on the same premise!

But, I have figured out the glitch ... (remember that you heard from me first). Please don't tell ANYONE ELSE! It was all those stories I told of Senator Joe and the FBI and me ... musta' scared the BEJEEZES out of everyone in Idaho! CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson

No, it's just that I've gotten the staff to the point where they don't need me very much. Which is what I wanted to do when I took the job. I take the heat, answer the nasty patrons, and deal with the BIG issues like the budget. Then I think up stuff like these radio interviews and delegate, delegate, delegate.

As I keep saying, I'm in management: I just think 'em up, other people gotta make 'em work.

Like the time I was on a cruise. I called back, my #2 asked me if I minded if we changed the layout of Administration around -- basically switching sides of the office area. I asked if it would get us more efficiency, she said she thought it would, I said "Okay, let's try it."
"Good," she replied. "We didn't want to have to change it back."

I'm listening to Kendall right now. He just finished attempting to answer a question posed to him: What makes folkies different? He couched his response in a half dozen disclaimers and then said, that the main difference is that while those who listen to pop music listen for the beat, folkies pay more attention to the lyrics.

Good one, Kendall! I fully expected you to jump on the straight line, though.

Damn and blast! I missed a bunch of the interview.

A few weeks ago I buggered my back real good, and this afternoon, my chiropractor, who is willing to make house calls (how amazing is that!??) came to give me a badly needed work-over. By the time I recovered, the time suddenly occurred to me! I popped on the computer, accessed KISU, and discovered that I'd missed Kendall (again, damn and blast!!). But I think I caught most of the interview with Bob.

Excellent, m'boy, excellent!! Sounding good!!

You say you'll have a recording of the interview? Maybe I could listen to it(?). Did you, maybe, get Kendall too?

Bob Nelson's interview was also interesting. I agree with his comment that the librarians asked some good questions.

Here's the link for the The Pacific Northwest Folklore Society that , if I remember correctly, Bob helped found and was president of at the age of sixteen(!!).

Bob, I heard you say that you were 13 years old when you first started singing folk songs (did you mean singing professionally?). Meaning, did you grow up with those songs? I still am curious why you and Kendall think that young people now in your respective communities aren't "in to" folk music like you both were. Is it because there are other protest music, or perhaps because people protest differently? And do you think that life has sped up so much that young people are impatient with long songs or they think songs are for moving to (dancing to) and not for listening to.

I don't want this to turn into yet another "What is folk music?" thread, but I'm curious to hear (read) more of your (Bob and Kendall) opinions about the question about young people and folk music -a question that you both were asked in your separate interviews.

Thanks,

Azizi

I also like the fact that each of the interviews I've heard -Bruce's, and Kendall's and Bob's and another gentleman who's not a Mudcatter :o) were conversational in tone. And the librarians didn't seem to be nervous.

I also like hearing examples of each guest's music.

Thank you, Mike, for helping make this happen and thank your staff for a job well done.

Good morning Azizi ... you asked some serious questions and I'll attempt some answers:

I was NOT singing professionally at 13 ... I waited until my 14th birthday, then I was invited up on stage with what we called a "Country Western" band in those days. I was horrible, but the band leader took me to one side, coached me, and had me start all over again. I've never forgotten the kindness of "Sheriff Tex."

As to why young people today aren't into the traditional ballads? ... hmmm. I think there's a LOT of reasons. The pace of life today, especially with the sensory input in their lives, steers them away from a lot of introspection, I think. And ballads do require a fair amount of sensitivity, thinking, and a study of history. As Kendall said ... we're students of history. And as I often say, if we don't know where we came from, how the heck do we know where we are?

CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson

A bit of tech info:

The link that you click on
to get the audio (under NEW)
"Radio Interview, KISU

Morse and Bob Nelson"
is a .m3u file (74 byte)
which sends a streaming .mp3 file to
whatever mp3 player you might be using
such as Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.
If you just type in (or click) the following URL

you can download the complete .mp3 file

And Bob was in great form as usual!

Jeez! I don't think I've heard "Oleanna" since the lady in the red dress who accompanied herself on the accordion (didn't see accordions at hoots that often) used to regale us with it back in the 1950s!

Great interviews both!

There was another part of the story of the FBI and me that I forgot to mention: I volunteered and joined the Army in 1955. I was sworn in at Fort Lawton, Washington, but first I had to sign the dreaded "loyalty oath." This was a three page, double column, listing a various organizations in Washington state. I was told to check any of them that I had had contact with. I did, going merrily down the pages checking: "Seattle Labor Council", "Committee To Overturn The Smith Act", "Committee For The Protection Of The Foreign Born", on and on. The Lt. who was supervising my exam turned white and orderd me to stay right where I was. He came back with a Captain, who came back with a Major.

The Major grilled me about relationship with each organization I had checked. I explained; "I sing for the Seattle Labor Council one night a month, because they give me all the hot dogs I can eat and five bucks!" "I sing for the "Committee To Protect The Foreign Born" every other Saturday night, because they give me five bucks and all the beer I can drink."

Three days after that, two FBI suits and ties combed my neighborhood and asked all my neighbors what kind of a guy I was. I musta' passed inspection, as two weeks later I was in the Army.

Someday I oughta' write a song ................ Bob(deckman)Nelson

Washington State (used to be referred to—and some folks still do—as "the Soviet of Washington") was the scene of a lot of Wobbly (IWW) activity during the first few decades of the 20th century. In Centralia, WA, on 1919, the Centralia Legionnaires attacked and burned the Centralia IWW hall, setting it on fire and killing everyone they found inside. Before that, in 1916, there was the "Everett Massacre," where a group of Wobblies were met on the Everett waterfront and slaughtered (Bob currently lives in Everett).

During the late 1940s and into the 1950s, we had the Canwell Committee locally, concurrent with and sharing the values of the House Un-American Activities Committee, so people around here were constantly being investigated up the ziggy. Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger used to make regular visits in the early 1940s to sing for some of the same organizations that Bob sang for—and the term "hootenanny" in relation to a folk singers' jam session was invented in Seattle and carried back to New York by Seeger (he notes this in his "The Incompleat Folksinger").

In the early 1950s, if you bought a copy of "A Treasury of Folk Songs" edited by John and Sylvia Kolb (Bantam Books, 35¢) off your local drugstore paperback rack, somebody was liable to start surreptitiously following you.

As Bob mentioned in the interview, I also had a couple of representatives from the Fat Boys Institute knocking on my door and asking me to keep an eye out on their behalf (I figure they must have had me pegged as relatively innocuous, otherwise they wouldn't have asked me). But that's another story and too long to go into here.

Fun times!!

Yeah, old crew cut is back. I saw him. He crawled back out of the garbage can with nothing to show for his efforts but coffee grounds in his ears, egg shells in his hair, and orange peelings in his pockets.

The CDs, including some for interviews yet to come, were delivered to me yesterday. They'll be sent out ASAP to the Appropriate People (e.g., TSA, Homeland Security, FBI, CIA, etc.).

ALSO, they will as some point be available on the Library's website as streaming audio. Someday...soon...I hope.

Some folks were working on are Wallace Macrae, Wiley Gustafson, Jerry Pournelle, Greg Bear, and (I hope) Tom Paxton and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Outrageous! Rap, do you have any idea when the interview with Jerry Pournelle will be?

Back in the late Fifties and early Sixties, he and I used to guzzle tall-and-foamies in Seattle's infamous Blue Moon Tavern, argue politics, and generally save the world. He enjoyed folk music and came to the hoots pretty often. This was before he left for California. At the time, I didn't even know he was interested in writing! Then his science fiction stories and novels started to appear, much to my amazement.

The last time I saw him was in 1985(?), when he and Larry Niven came to Seattle on a book tour and were autographing copies of Footfall at a local book store. Barbara was with me, and he introduced us to Larry Niven, then asked us to join them for dinner. He said a couple of friends would be along shortly and we'd all go to Ivar's Salmon House. It turned out the two friends were local SF writer, Mildred Downey Broxon (Too Long a Sacrifice)—and Frank Herbert, who had just return from Hollywood from trying to ride herd on the shooting script for Dune.

That was quite an evening! I've got some great stories that grew out of that evening, but that's matter for another thread. I've drifted this one too much already.

'Twould be good to hear Jerry's voice again.
