Tony Garnier is wearing the Obama button [audience cheers]. All Right, Tony likes to think it’s a very good time right now! [audience cheers]. Me, I was born in 1941, that was the year they bombed Pearl Harbor. I’ve been living in a world of darkness ever since, but it looks like things are gonna change now (during the band credits before Blowin’ In The Wind).

This was the night of the 2008 Presidential election.

Selected BobTalk

We usually think of our next artist as a piano pounding boogie master. But I wanted to take a second to show another side of him, his deep blue side. (about Amos Milburn)

Sometimes ya play a song for just one reason. This song has a lot going for it: it’s got a swingin’ arrangement done by Benny Carter; The Raelettes sound great on it; and Ray sings his ass off. But the reason I like this record – it’s got the best recorded finger snaps I’ve ever heard.

She’s known as a rockabilly singer but she doesn’t get enough credit for singing straight country. She deserves it, too. (about Wanda Jackson).

One of the forefathers of punk. He earned this by producing The Damned, and he made a lot of records on his own…you might not know this one, where he channels his inner Doug Sahm. His keyboard player does a pretty good Augie Myers impression too…That’s a knees-up rocker. (about Nick Lowe).

South of the border, they know him as Amigo Hombre. (about Buddy Guy).

I've Got Blood In My Eyes For You

 

Selected BobTalk

Along with sweat and tears, it’s among the most popular of the bodily fluids.

Here’s an unusual record, with an interesting story behind it…D. Woltz was in the patent medicine business and he was the mayor of Galax, Virginia in 1930 and 1931. He vanished into obscurity after swindling the town of Galax while he was the mayor. Lemme see now…patent medicine business, crooked mayor, swindled the town, disappeared in obscurity…of course they recorded a gospel record!

The tale of a woman who is positively reptilian. (about Cold Blooded Woman).

Ya know if anyone ever asks me why I do this radio show I can just play ‘em that. Jerry Lee Lewis singing Shakespeare -- that’s what this show is all about.

That record made it to number 8 on the pop charts. Imagine a record like that on the charts now. We lived in great times. (about Transfusion).

Another great example of saying a lot by saying a little. (about Blood Stains on the Wall).

Playing the organ there for ya too. Mighty fine sound…A tuneful little ditty about a violence-prone establishment. (about Bucket Of Blood).

Walter Vinson on guitar and vocals; Lonnie Chatmon on fiddle; Sam Chatmon on guitar; and Bo Carter on guitar – don’t let the name fool you, he was also a Chatmon. I mention their names because it is important to remember that these are people. This is how they made their living. They went somewhere to record it and went many places to perform it. That’s how they got life experience to write and record more songs. Sure you can sit around your house, without ever leaving home, stick in your ear buds, and listen to it all alone. But you gotta ask yourself, what’s the next generation gonna write about? Sitting home alone, you’re not gonna write a song like this. (about The Mississippi Sheiks and I’ve Got Blood In My Eyes For You).

 

Bob’s instructions for getting blood stains out of clothing

1. Wet the stain with cold water.

2. Coat the blood stain with powdered meat tenderizer and more cold water; that makes sense – blood is found in meat and tenderizer can break it down.

3. Rub this paste into the shirt and let it sit for about half an hour.

4. During this half hour, consider what you have done. Then rinse, and head for Mexico.

 

Bob’s Bloody Mary Recipe

2/3 of a cup of tomato juice – don’t pinch pennies here, get a good tomato juice

Add 2 go 3 oz of vodka – I sometimes add 4

1 t of horseradish – "use freshhorsh…fresh horshwa…use fresh horshradish"

Sprinkle a little Tabasco sauce in there

1 t of Worcestershire Sauce – "I can say that easier than horseradish!"

Take the juice of ½ a lime

A little bit of salt – "I use the coarse sea salt; I like the texture"

A little fresh ground pepper

Then stick a celery stalk in there

"Put on a couple of Willie Nelson records, sit for a while, and it’s good night, Martha"

I always loved that voice that answers him in the records. I always love to hear them yell 'yeah' and 'what'. (about Peaches In The Springtime).

I had a friend staying at my house recently. The other morning I came into the kitchen and saw him staring at a carton of orange juice. I asked him what he was doing and he said the carton said 'concentrate'.

 

Notes.

This was an announced but unaired Season Two episode, and was probably recorded during that season, as Dylan refers to another Season Two show in his commentary, Trains.

Going Down the Road Feeling Bad

 

Selected BobTalk

Today on Theme Time Radio Hour, we’re gonna walk down that weary road, spend a little time on Easy Street, visit Primrose Lane, and attempt to steer clear of Skid Row. We’ll traverse the avenues and boulevards. We’ll take the road less travelled, and hopefully you’ll find us right up your block. We’ll drive down Route 66, America’s Main Street now sadly gone. We’ll get a little bit of southern exposure on Route 90 and find out the skinny from the man on the streets. Let’s go where the rubber meets the road. That’s right, we’re traversing the highways and byways, the promenades and roadways. We’re on the road to ruin. I may not be a Rhodes Scholar, but I got my share of street smarts! So join us for the next hour as we consult the street map. You are here.

Gives you a real sense of the serendipitous wonder that is New York City. (about 14th Street).

You know I don’t usually like to tell people what I’m doing, but I am talking to a couple of car companies about possibly being the voice of their GPS system. I think it would be good if you’re looking for directions and you heard my voice saying something like, ‘Take a left at the next street…no a right…you know what, just go straight.’ I probably shouldn’t do it, ‘cause whichever way I go, I always end up in one place: on Lonely Avenue. Luckily I’m not totally alone. Ray Charles beat me there.

It’s a capella. This allows the inherent dysrhythmia of the song to shine through. (about Hit The Road Jack).

This song has gone on to become a country classic and a truck driver’s anthem. So if you’re driving on the back roads, turn this one up. (about Willin)-

Back in the 60’s, I used to hear the word ‘groovy’ all the time – I had no idea what people were talking about. For me a record like this was the definition of grooviness. So here’s the grooviest song I know, all about America’s main street. (about Route 66).

Sid Selvidge, Lee Baker, Jimmy Crosthwait, and of course, that magical musical maestro from Memphis, Jim Dickinson…he was never one of those guys who could fit into a pigeon hole…He was the kind of guy you could call if you needed someone to play the piano, fix a tractor, or make red coleslaw from scratch. (about Mud Boy and The Neutrons).

I always wanted an introduction like this for myself. (about 36-22-36).

Many days and many nights…not to be confused with the Mennonites, who are also in the bible.

With a song that you’re gonna say after you heard it, ‘What’d he say?!?’ (about 36 Inches High).

Our next artist is one of only three performers that we play on Theme Time Radio Hour who had his face on a bag of flour…if you think you know the other two make sure and take the Theme Time Radio Hour quiz, available now on line. There’s no prizes to speak of, we’re just trying to gather some information on our listeners. (about Sonny Boy Williamson).

This is Theme Time Radio Hour, where we’re lookin’ at the new math…nah, I’m just kidding. We’re talking about numbers, old school.
