My guests are both huge fans of U2. Finally, I found another hard core fan of U2 for regular, returning guest Murray Valeriano to talk to! And that man is comic, host and good guy Damien Fahey. I prove that I don’t know about older music as much as I didn’t know about newer music. I’m sure I make the same mistakes from last episode. Let’s go there…again. When will I learn? Enjoy.

    Leave it to U2 fans (emoticon) to perpetuate the oversimplification of what Elvis Presley was all about...he was the pretty white guy among the knot of guys who were conversant with blues, country, gospel, pop, and all the related stuff they played together in places like Sun Records...not "just a white guy doing black music" (that would be Pat Boone). The other Sun artists, ranging from Johnny Cash to Jerry Lee Lewis to Carl Perkins to Ike (Punchy Jealous) Turner to B.B. King to Muddy Waters, just weren't Quite as salable, but did pretty well for themselves.

    ---And Peggy Lee was a singer-songwriter! As were a lot of jazz and some jazz-pop people. Meanwhile, the composers who weren't performers have never gone away...though a number of them, such as Carole King, eventually became performers... (a nice page on Lee: http://www.peggylee.com/solos/writer.html )

    ---I waited too long to get a copy of the Richards autobio at the dying Borders...so I'll have to pick it up at a library sale soon...or maybe even actually Pay Retail.

    ---UB40's "Going Down to Liverpool" is fine in both original and Bangles cover...

    ---The Decembrists, next month on AUSTIN CITY LIMITS (PBS)... http://video.pbs.org/program/1273976454/

    ---Actually, Richard Thompson was more in the Fairport Convention in the '60s (as the AllMusic thing will tell you), as a founding member (and had mostly been a duo act with his then wife Linda Thompson in the '70s and a solo act since...just brilliant, in every context). Fairport was the Byrds of Britain...only they've lasted even longer, but haven't been much more than pleasant since Thompson left. (And his cover of "Oops! I Did It Again" is both fun and hilarious...)

    ---If you didn't know about Quizno's on your own ticket, Jackie, I wonder where else you might've picked up on who has Pepsi and who Coke...(whatever happened to Royal Crown?).

    ---Well, Lucas "improved" the theatrical THX-1138 for home video, too...a film that is utterly dependent on Robert Duvall's performance, anyway...

    ---Hm...Greg Kinnear hosts TALK SOUP and it goes to Tyler; he inherits LATER and it goes to Cynthia Garrett...tall African-American women take note...

    Thanks! Very amiable conversation.
