Music, music, music…

Jeff and I had fun on the radio this morning; here’s the music we played, set by set:

Title Artist Album
First set: I tried to match Peter’s style for this time of the show by playing Celtic music during this set.
O’Mahoney’s Frolics The Chieftains A Chieftains Celebration
Green Fields Of Glentown / The Galtee Reel / Bobby Casey’s
Number Two / Wing Commander Donald Mackenzie’s Reel
Silly Wizard The Best of Silly Wizard
Tae The Weavers Gin Ye Gang/The Blackberry Bush The Tannahill Weavers Troubadours Of British Folk: Vol. 3
The Boys of the Lough / Slanty Gart Boys of the
The Boys of the Lough (Vinyl)
Second set: I intended this set to transition away from Celtic music; I had a few operational problems. I had planned to play Steeleye Span before Fairport Convention, but I started the wrong CD player coming out of my announcements. I had also intended to play Gordon Bok’s “This Old Mandolin” before David Grisman, but I left that disk at home and the station didn’t have a copy.
Tam Lin Fairport Convention Liege & Lief
The Old Maid In The Garrett / Tam Lin (Reel) Steeleye Span Time
O’Banion’s Wake David Grisman 100% Handmade Music, Vol. 1
Third set: This was the political set, although calling “Man of Constant Sorrow” political is pushing it…
I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow The Soggy Bottom
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
C for Conscription Almanac Singers Folk
Song America – A 20th Century Revival (Disc 1)
White House Blues John Renbourn The
Soho Years (but that album’s not available as far as I can tell, so try The Essential: The Best Of John Renbourn)
Acme Forgetting Company Lou & Peter Berryman House Concert
Fourth set: Ridin’ the rails to New Orleans and beyond…
Orange Blossom Special Johnson Mountain Boys Classic Railroad Songs, Vol. 1: Steel Rails
The Kettle Valley Line Bruce Brackney The Rose Tattoo
M.T.A. Kingston Trio Folk Song America
– A 20th Century Revival (Disc 2)
Mystery Train Rick Danko Bring It on Home, Vol. 1
The City Of New Orleans Steve Goodman Folk Song America – A 20th Century Revival (Disc 4)
New Orleans Maria Muldaur Bring It on Home, Vol. 2
La Danse de Mardi Gras Balfa Brothers The Balfa Brothers Play Traditional Cajun Music, Vols. 1-2 (but I played the vinyl pressing)
Last set: I picked these songs to lead back to work, but there was another glitch — I had intended to play “Cold on the Shoulder” by Tony Rice to start the set, but I miscued the CD player! “In the Jailhouse Now” was a last-second addition.
Hello Stranger Norman Blake Rounder Folk
Don’t Think Twice (It’s All Right) Ramblin’ Jack
House on Fire: An Urban Folk Collection: Red House Records Tenth Anniversary
Hallelujah, I’m A Bum U. Utah Phillips Legends of Folk
In the Jailhouse Now Soggy Mountain Boys O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Jamaica Farewell Harry Belafonte “Harry Belafonte – All Time Greatest Hits, Vol. 1”

Almost everything I played was mine; I did use the station’s copy of Acme Forgetting Service since I only have it from iTunes. And I no longer own the Balfa Brothers LP, so I had to use theirs.

I enjoyed playing radio again!
