Music for Waitresses and Trains

I’m getting more moments where I run down the mental checklist of necessities (at least one fresh track cued, playlist updated, not too long since last back-announce, requests found, PSAs/promos/announcements made) and find I don’t need to do anything but sit back and listen.

My favourite moment this week was playing Hobo Train by Rube Waddell, which I haven’t listened to in a long long time, and remembering why I used to love it so much. There are some great lines in that track.

Of course I also liked it when someone called in just to say I was playing a good show. They picked off a bunch of the folk/blues acts as reasons why — I hope that isn’t a sign the Monday morning audience isn’t in to, say, Junior Boys. But the caller didn’t have any such complaints so I’m just gonna feel good about the whole damn thing.

If you’re going to start playing Hamlet, i’m going to send show tune requests…
Nice stuff this morning, I liked the train set a lot. I hadn’t heard that Utah Phillips song, which I enjoyed. Thanks for playing Black Girl Pain, that was a nice suprise. When I come to Ann Arbor next, i’m teaching you how to pronouce his name.
