Dear Listeners,

'Twas fun putting this morning's playlist together.  Always casting about for a bit of a theme for my shows, whether pronounced or subtle, I stumbled upon one for today that just felt right:  each three-track set of music featured a male vocals, a female vocals, and an instrumental.  Nothing fancy, but it worked!  I sure hope you are enjoying the music this morning and that your day just got started in exactly the right way.

Musically yours,

Diane

Dear Listeners,

For the first time in my ever-lovin' life I watched a football game on the telly yesterday.  That thing they call the Superbowl was actually kinda fun even if it WAS tertiary to the gathered good friends and cute commercials.  In honor of the winners--who really did work hard to earn their gabillions--I dug out Carl Solomon's Those Two Crows.  That was the closest I could find to ravens...!

I sure hope you've enjoyed the show this morning.

Musically yours,

Diane Hunt

Dear Listeners,

How nice to have you along for the good music this morning!  There was a fair smattering of variety:  local and distant musicians, bluesy folk and jazzy folk, male vocals, female vocals and no vocals, fresh-off-the-press music and old songs that have stood the test of time.  All put together for you with a touch o'love!

I'll be back next Monday with another 90 minutes of sweet music--the ONLY way to wake up in the morning.

Till then....

Musically yours,

Diane

 Dear Listeners,

Sorry about my voice--or lack thereof--this morning.  Just a touch of laryngitis.  I sure appreciate all your calls of concern--KBOO listeners are the best.  Thankfully, my throat doesn't hurt--it just sounds awful.  Hey, that gave me a reason to play even more good music than normal!  I hope you enjoyed the show.

Musically yours,

Diane

OK..so I got my Outlook reminder for 9:30am local time and thanks to Diane, I'll be a first time listener today. Look forward to today's program.

Great week to all!

let's hear some Fruition! www.myspace.com/fruitionstringband 

re: new music

Hey there - I love this show, can't really get by without it!

I want to just share some music I really think could be included here, if you haven't heard:

Eddi Reader - formerly with Fairground Attraction, legendary Scottish singer whose Songs of Robert Burns changed the way people heard these songs and established her as living treasure in Scotland. Her new album Love is the Way is gaining raves in the UK. Myspace.com/eddireader - you can hear some samples.

Kate Rusby - probably Britain's most important young folk singer - Awkward Annie is her most recent album and astonishing since she writes most of the material herself. Chris Thile and Eddi Reader are both featured artists on the album. www.katerusby.com.

It would be wonderful to see them here in the US, but just getting them on the radio would be a start!

Thanks and keep up the awesome music!

Doug Smith

Hi Diane,

I'm listening to your show and was pleasantly surprised to hear our pal, Doug, doing "Anything Goes". I'll have to tell him he got some airtime when I see him next. Your voice sounds great on the air and your playlist rocks! Keep up the very good work, my friend! Tell the management they need to give you a raise.

;-)

Diane Hunt

This is Randy from Colorado, and I *loved* the show! Quirky mix of music is just right to start my day out right. Diane, when are you going to teach me how to contra dance?

Thank You

Dear Randy,

Yikes! Only today did I see your kind email from September 22 that you left on the KBOO website. I wasn't expecting any "fan mail" here at kboo.fm so I didn't thing to check...until a friend told me about the hundreds, nay, thousands of emails piling up at this website all about my show. Oddly enough, only one (yours) was positive. All the others said something to the effect of "what the *&^!%&# is SHE doing on this venerable radio station!"

That's ok.

I can take it.

So, Mr. Randy, you liked my quirky music? Hope you heard my show yesterday morning (October 27). It, too, was filled with a wide variety of, uh, good stuff. I'm on again on Monday, November 24th. I do hope you'll tune in. I'll play a randy tune, just for you.

I'm pretty big into contradancing, so I have made it my mission to play at least one contra tune each show. Next time you swing through P-Town, I'll give you a lesson. You won't ever be the same again...

Um, is this my friend who goes by the name of Randy in Colorado? You know, the Randy with the beautiful wife and the two red-headed kids? If so, thanks, my friend. If not, you, stranger Randy, have just finaigled yourself into the most elite fan club on Earth...

Warm regards,
Diane Hunt, DJ
