Ron and Amos, it was a lovely program (and I was very honored to be a part of it). From the articulate descriptions you both provided, I think listeners could gain a good sense of what Mudcat is about and what it can provide. Ron, your questions for Amos about the CD series were just the sort of questions people would be curious about. Bravo!

I had two friends over. Since I'm about ten miles out of listening range (where I am, 89.1 pulls in a station from God-knows-where all about fishing--honest!), we gathered around the ol' laptop and had ourselves a nice time just listening. It felt very traditional, despite the newer technology. Thanks.

Dere Mr.Olaskew,
Pay no attention to that fool Royal madman's ramblings az I finally got to heer Kendall sing an' that made me reel happy inside. I ain't one for sea shantys but if they all sing az good az Kendall can, I guess shanty music is alright by me.

The boys and me wuz purdy tore up for a while from not gettin' to heer arselfs on the radio, but az some wizend person sed, "Necessity iz the mother of all evil" or sumthin close on to that, and we are gonna see about switching ar new antenaae over soze it kin Broadcast instead of jest recieve. This way we kin send out Khandu/Boberzd/Tweedathon music 24 hours a day. Yore inspiration haz changed ar lives forever and we thank you mightily fer it and feer not az we'll only trouble yew in the future for some polaroids of th wirin' at yore transmitter so we kin get an idee of how that works afore we dive in this thing willy nilly.

It's been a long evening. I have spent the last several hours trying to talk ole Tweedster down from the top of the Tower. After hearing the webcast, he climb up there screamin' "I doan wann live enymoar", (but I noticed he stopped a few minutes on the first section to see if Retha May was taking another shower!)

We tried bribery, blackmail and deceit, but that didn't have much effect. It was only after ole Bobert told him that Ron Otasco played "Mudcat Wimmin" after the program went of the air that he finally calmed down. But he still refused to come down, until I used my Kingly authority and commanded him to come down.

Bobert and P-Vine are with him now, talking smooth and sweet to him and slipping him a few mickeys.

I think he will be Okay by tomorrow.

If he has anymore fits, we are going to ship him to Amos!

WFDU Amos! WFMU is another local station. WFUV is also in the area.   Too many stations with W, F and U in the call letters! (No FU jokes please!)

We do have a link to CAMSCO as well as Mudcat on our Traditions webpage.

Should anyone wander through looking for ordering information, it can be found by clicking here. Because WFMU WFDU is a non-commercial station they had to be very conservative about pointers to sales sites, even though this is a legitimate non-profit purpose.

At the top of this thread you will find links to all prior discussions on the subject of the Mudcat Sampler CD Series, also known as the Blue Plate Special.

Thank you all for listening and for your kind words. Amos was a wonderful guest, he spoke eloquently about Mudcat and this CD project.

I want to say it again, I really think this CD project captures the spirit of an old-fashioned sing.   Everyone coming together to share new songs and sing old favorites. I truly see this set as being a great "tool" to help perpetuate folk music, much in the same spirit as the Harry Smith anthology had in the 1950's. Granted that was a different animal, it served as an introduction to folk music for many people.   The Mudcat set is a living "document" that shows folk music is alive and well and there are great songs in each of us waiting to be shared.

I can't wait for Vol. 6!!!

Thanks again to everyone! It was wonderful to know that many of you were listening in today. It was an honor to present this program.

Ron

Ron, wonderful!

To tell you the honest truth, I don't think I took the CDs all that seriously. It was a nice little project to raise money, and I thought most of the people who would hear and buy the CDs would be Mudcatters. I never dreamed they'd be getting airplay on a NYC radio show. If I had, I would have been too chicken to send anything.

And Rick Fielding's closing the show!!!

Our pleasure Ron and on behalf of the rest of the cast and myself, we thank you kindly for getting some airplay and hopefully more sales for the MudCat Sampler. Our next project in the works involves salvaging the surplus computer/carblocks and building a super server for Max to use in storing the enormously valuable Digital Tradition files, but more on that later.

Today's the day folks. Stay close to your homesets and tune into WFDU at five PM EST for good music and the play by play from our MainMan Amos who went the distance and then beyond.

Here's a **World Timeclock** for the folks who aren't in the US and are wondering what time 5:00 PM EST translates to in their fair lands.

Also you'll need Windows Media player to listen in and here's a link just in case some of you don't have it loaded.

Wow! I'm very impressed Tweed! You can do some work on our tower in Alpine, NJ when you get to our neck of the woods.   In fact it is in the middle of the woods with lots of deer, racoons, possum and a few skunks running around. Hmm, sounds like a buffet!!

Incidently, WFDU's tower is the historic Armstrong tower where Majore E.H. Armstrong invented FM radio. All these years later we are doing our best to make his idea work!   There is a famous picture of Armstrong climbing up the tower - legend has it he was up there installing our antenne, which is still in use!   If you would like to see the tower, there is a picture on our website - www.wfdu.fm .

Don't forget, you can listen to the show from that same website - 5pm Eastern Time!

Thanks again Tweed for your effort! It is really nice!

Deere Mr.Oleskew,
We ar not smart men az yoo may hav imagined but we dew no thet thar iz no sucha thing az bad pubisity, tharfore we (me and the other two idjits, boberzd & that Khenny who thinks he iz a King fer some reason) must implode you to seeze an desert this holy unwarnted attak on us, who ar yore mos staunchest supportorz. Summhow you hab misconcerted ar attempts at keepin this thread alive an in the top forty or fifty all the time. By ar palpitations yoo are gonna hav mor ears glued to yore broadcast nex Sunday thne at any other time in yore show'z history an we ar doin ar part to help you out az best we air able. But enuff of serus and kwarlsome talk an on to mor constrictive areas of converzion.

Az wuz fomerly reported the Boberzd, King Khandu an myself are building a antena to beat all antena's entirely from 3/32" balsa wood strips so thet the peeples here in Wildcat Holler ar able to lissen in on thar Zeniths. Most fokes hab comperterz donated by the county but they ain't got much in the way of lectericity ore even a foneline so they ar fairly useless cept to block up the vista cruiser over at Rufusez doublewide and are summwhat lighter than cement blocks to carry, so they are gude in that way I reckon.

We ar happy to report thet the tower iz coming along reel gude. Me an the boberzdz, an Khandu, ef you want to count him az help, fineshed up the footers for it late last nite and hab almos compleeted the first section which iz about level wif the double wides baffroom winder. I had to come down after inadversity gettin a good look at Retha May az she took her shower az it wuz fairly troublesum to my constitushun. She might dress out at about 650 but iz a good cook so I reckon thatz how them two stays together so long.

Anyhow, Khandu sed it wouldn't bother him none so he went up thar perty quick an we got a little wirk outta hiz lazy no-good self. He of corse spent much time hollerin down at us below to git more this an that and whar's the hammer etc.

Lately hiz condishun haz worsened an he's taken to wearin' one o' them Cherokee headresses all the time. Th local inspektor showed up this afternoon an wanted to see ar buildin' permit fer the thing and me and boberzd tole him to go ax the feller in the feathers 'cause he thinks he'z the chief, so I reckon it iz a good thing in that way az we were at a loss fer wordz. An I don need to tell yoo thet me an boberzdz had a gud chuckle over it too! Hiz Lordship tole the inspekert some nonsense an' that man walked backwardz clear to hiz car, which waz parked consedrably fur don the rode. I kin only hope thet nothin' awful comes from all of this in spite of ar gud intenshunz.

Thet's about all the nooz for now, so I will close wif yet another plug fer the station an' a plee to all wif ears to hear to
remember to set aside sum time an lissen to Mr. Ron's program and heer Amos talk and Mudcatters sang on it, either on this internet ore at the Doublewide in the Holler cawz thet anteana shud be able to pick up publik radio from here to Kingdomkhan when hitz finshed.

Yerz in gud fathe,
Tweezdrzzz

I did not see the first "heck", "danged" or "ain't" in that post!!

Seriously, thank you, Ron, for the support of our Mudcat CD series. If only there were a few thousand more like you!

I'm just teasing Bobert.    But you have to admit, it gets a little stale after awhile. At least Mark Twain was clever and funny!!

Dialect is very tricky to do well and I've never been a big fan of using it. It is very easy to make it sound like mockery and fall into sterotypes. But you are right, it can add color and make a story interesting when done right.

Hmmm... my wife drives a Toyota and I drive a Nissan. I also love good BBQ, which you can't find here in NJ!!   Maybe I've been living a lie all these years!

Ron
