Welcome to Season Three of Theme Time Radio Hour, and we’re glad to have ya. We’ve had a lot of fun the last couple of years, presenting the greats and near-greats, the fondly remembered and the almost forgotten, performing a wide variety of music on a veritable cornucopia of subjects. But as we start season 3 we’re gonna take our cue from a sign Harry S. Truman kept on his desk: The Buck Stops Here. And not just the buck, the yen, the sheckle, the nickel and dime, and if you still subscribe to the barter system, maybe a bushel of corn. So break open your piggy banks and cash in your bonds. This week’s episode of Theme Time Radio Hour is most definitely cash and carry.

If ya listen, it’s a very unusual instrument he’s playing. It’s kinda half banjo, half guitar. It’s a six string instrument, tuned and fingered like a guitar but with a banjo body, so it has that trebly banjo sound, but there’s more notes available. (about Papa Charlie Jackson).

I almost think we play too much Van Morrison. Then I listen to one of his records and I think, no we don’t!

There’s a great baritone sax solo on this record. It’s probably Howard Cooper, and you can almost hear him stepping back into the reed section to blend back in at the end of his solo. I always like to give you a little something to listen to in a song; I find it makes you listen to the whole thing more carefully. (about Greenbacks).

One of the true honky-tonk heroes. (about Lefty Frizzell).

Sounds a little bit like Barrett Strong’s ‘Money’ – not enough to get sued I guess. (about 100 Dollar Bill).

It’s because of them we have the familiar sound of the saxophone solo on vocal group records. You see what happened was, back on February 22nd, 19 and 51, tenor saxophonist Frank ‘Floorshow’ Culley brought his band into the Atlantic studios to back The Clovers. Well Ahmet Ertegun only wanted to use the rhythm section; Frank knew if he didn’t play he wasn’t gonna get paid. Ahmet said to him, ‘Now listen man, if I pay you, you’re gonna play!’ so play he did and it was the first saxophone solo on a vocal group record. It reached number one, and the bootin’ tenor solo was a mainstay on vocal group records ever since.

One reason you can’t take it with you is that is usually leaves before you do.

The king of the hillbilly piano players…Many people think he was an uncredited co-writer on Hank Williams’ Jambalaya, and I can believe it, ‘cause it has that bounce. (about Moon Mullican).

This one’s for you Aaron (Neville) (about Money Honey).

He once told me that money isn’t the key to happiness, but if you have enough, you can have a key made. (about Tiny Grimes).

Selected BobTalk

Why did it take us 78 shows to do one as obvious as the subject of night?

A saxophone player who joined the band at age 16. The band leader hired him because he had the right color suit, he could read the charts pretty good, and he said he could be at the train station at 7 AM. The same way I choose a band. (about Joe Houston).

Whenever I listen to Dr. John I can almost smell the night blooming jasmine.

Sounds just like Love In Vain by Robert Johnson. Robert recorded it 8-10 years later, but he must have heard that record. You play the two back to back and it’s remarkable. There’s nothing new under the sun – or in honor of tonight’s show, under the moon neither. (about When The Sun Goes Down).

What always kills me about this record is that every time I listen to it I’m totally convinced that the background singers are singing ‘Shoebox.’ Doesn’t make any sense, but that’s what I hear. Shoebox. You be the judge. (about In The Night).

I got nothin’ to say about him, we told you about him before, and you know how to look him up in Wikipedia. That’s where he lives – Wikipedia, Louisiana. (about Professor Longhair).

Most of these songs started out in the still of the night in David’s kitchen on a beaten up four track recorder, and it sure sounds like it. And I mean that in the best possible sense. (about Forever Night Shade Mary).

The only man I know who could write a song for Janis Joplin and then act with Barbara Streisand. (about Kris Kristofferson).

Like all creatures of the night it’s about time for me to scurry back to my cave. But we’ll be back again next week with another theme, and anecdotes and tales to tantalize and delight.
