Gee, Kat, I've never been able to get into the show live - too many "hits" on the site the othewr times I've tried. Sounds like they're broadcasting from Redding, California - a modest-sized town 175 miles north of me.
Ramblin' Jack will be back in the second half of the show to sing "Old Shep."

Thanks for the heads up, Kat- just caught your post by chance. Haven't listened to him in years & now I'm going to have to dig thru the vinyl archives.... been too long.

Best, Greg

It is on again this afternoon, for any who may have missed it.

Art, I was interested in your perspective on this, too. I don't mind some of the stories, but our NPR also runs Keillor doing a poetry reading each day and I swear, if I hear him read another one in that sing-songy monotone, without much emotion or inflection I will not be responsible for what I do to my radio! I respect the man and really love PHC, but I just cannot stand the way he reads a poem. Might work for his own, but those of others he chooses need more passion read into them!

Kat,

I guess I just heard the last hour of the show. Was Jack allowed to do his thing in the first hour? I do hope so. The man has so much to offer. And he is so musical. Perfect chord changes all through his songs.---And those songs don't promote HIM, personally, but they push the STORY within the song to the fore--just the way it ought to be I think -- just the way the best actual folksingers ply their craft. But to me these have always been tales that, just by chance, happen to have a tune to make them emotionally easier to listen to. Jack is a master of communication -- an actor who never lets you realize that. Instead, the whole gestalt hits you---the story comes roaring through like a fast freight through the desert -- and it slows just enough that you can catch it on the fly. Jack caught me at the second University of Chicago Folk Festival (1962) and I've been riding along with him ever since---vicarious but his renditions are always the best possible way to present a given ballad.

Still, cutting off Jack doin' Gene Autry and Smily Burnett's "Riding Down The Canyon" was one more indication how inflexible our silly adherence to the ticking tyrany of the clock has become. So what else is new...

Yeah, Art, I agree. I gave part of the show another listen today and turned it off during the stupid owl & tree story which was supposed to have Jack on afterwards singing Old Shep, so I missed him. The part I did hear was about how delicate his most favourite guitar is and the last time he tuned it was last year! I could just *see* the grin on his face when he let that sink in...it was great, and I really enjoyed the two songs I did hear him sing, one about San Francisco Bay and another called Diamond Joe. He also spoke for a little bit about liking being a legend and his daughter has made a documentary about him which Garrison said something about airing next month. We'll have to watch for it.

Nice to hear your take on it.
