I run a respectable house here boys! No loose women after midnight, baths every Saturday, and keep your boots off the front parlor furniture. And I'll serve up good, honest, hard-working American pub music and the pure-drop traditional tunes from Ireland to keep you all honest.
And I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know any other music I should be playing. Any Chicago bar-band out there needing a Mother's love? Someone in Seattle has a Celtic concept album they've put together? And how about you Living History types in Texas -- there's always room for another version "Black is the Color." Mother really liked that one from Marc Gunn about the cat, for instance.
At any rate: send in the suggestions. You have my word that if it is Irish, if it is loud, if it is not interfering with Mother's beer budget...I just might get it on the air.
So answer Mother when she's asking: What band, ballad, or bartune SHOULD I be playin'? Let me hear about it. Are your IN a band I should be playin'? Get me an MP3. I'm real fond of unknown, unsigned, unpaid musicians.
