Blues For Modern Times (formerly Blues For Modern Man) (Series)

Produced by Jerry L. Davis

Most recent piece in this series:

Blues For Modern Times #176

From Jerry L. Davis | Part of the Blues For Modern Times (formerly Blues For Modern Man) series | 59:00


This is show #176 of the Series "Blues For Modern Times", (formerly called Blues For Modern Man). This show is produced to be broadcast as either a weekly Series, or it can be easily be used as a stand-alone episode. The focus of this Series is to support today's Modern Blues music and working Blues Artists, and it highlights the great variety of music that they record. My shows use mainly just received new, and artists latest Blues releases in each show, though I occasionally blend in other modern Blues music. Today’s Blues are a diverse and exciting genre, as todays Blues Artists play in various styles of Blues. This allows me to create a true Blues variety show that should appeal to most any curious music lover. These programs DO NOT have to be ran in order-however-the higher the show number, the newer the music in the program. These shows ARE NOT dated at all, so that this Series can begin to be run at any point or show number, at your Stations discretion.
  This show is designed for the music lover, with a great variety of music. It's also for the Blues lover, to check out the latest from some of their favorite artists, and to discover new Blues artists and their recordings. And this show is a good intro to the Blues for new Blues listeners, to help them discover the diversity in today’s modern Blues music. I produce this show solely to be a part of a NPR/Community Station's regular weekly 1 hour show lineup. This show focus is on the music, and I inform listeners of the songs I've played, what album it's from, and an occasional tidbit or two on the Artist or the tune.  I post my playlists and more on my Facebook Page for the Show, Blues For Modern Times.
Since the show is aired regularly on several stations, I produce and upload NEW SHOWS EVERY WEEK. My hope is to grow both the number of stations and listeners of this program, thereby fulfilling my mission to support working Artists, and share today’s Blues music with as many listeners as possible...Upon request, I also can produce 25 second spots for each show if desired by your station, leaving :05 to announce show day and time.

Up Your Alley (#1504)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00


The slang term birdie refers to drinking from a bottle without touching it with your lips. You might ask for a sip, for example, by promising Don't worry--I'll birdie it. This sanitary sipping method is also jokingly called waterfalling.
A listener in Southampton, New York, puzzles over the language at the end of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, in which the narrator assures that the story will continue so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless. What does heartless mean in this context?
If you're a pegan, then your diet is limited to a combination of paleo and vegan.
Judy from Tallahassee, Florida, is curious about the word spendthrift, which means someone who spends money freely. The word thrift in this case means wealth, and is the past participle of thrive. A more obvious word that means the same thing: spendall. Another is dingthrift, someone who dings, or makes a dent in, their savings.
The term cultural cringe refers to a tendency to regard one's own culture as inferior to that of another.
Quiz Guy John Chaneski's shares Writer's Math, a puzzle in which the names of numbers hidden within consecutive letters in a sentence. For example, what number lurks in the sentence Launch yourself on every wave?
Alice in Atlanta, Georgia, seeks a term for an adult who has lost both their parents. The best that English can offer is probably adult orphan or elder orphan.    
Vice is a noun meaning bad behavior, but it's also an adjective referring to an official who is second in command.  Karen, a seventh-and-eighth-grade history teacher in Waco, Texas, says her students wonder why. These two senses of vice come from two separate Latin words: vice, meaning in place of, and vitium, meaning fault or blemish. The two English descendants of these words ended up being spelled exactly the same way, even though they mean completely different things.
The little-used word famulus means assistant, and originally referred to the assistant of a sorcerer or scholar.
Rod in LaPorte, Indiana, has Welsh ancestry, and always wondered if the expressions to welsh on a bet suggests that the Welsh are dishonest. The verb to welsh and the noun welsher are  indeed mild ethnic slurs. To welsh dates back to at least the 1850s, and because it may offend, should be replaced by other words such as renege, waffle, or flip-flop. Similarly, taffy, another old word for the Welsh, long carried similar connotations of being a habitual liar and cheater.
Chandler from Chesapeake, Virginia, wonder about a term her in-laws use to mean in abundance, as in We have strawberries up the gump stump. The expression seems to have evolved from an earlier phrase possum up a gum tree or possum up a gum stump, referring to a hunted animal that's trapped. Over time, it became the rhyming phrase up a gump stump, and like the phrase up the wazoo, came to mean in abundance.
Book recommendation time! Martha's reading Dictionary Stories by Jez Burrows, short stories based on example sentences from dictionaries, and Grant recommends Julia Durango's The Leveler, a techno-thriller for teens about virtual worlds.
Named for anesthesiologist Dr. Virginia Apgar, the Apgar score--a measure of a newborn's appearance, pulse, grimace, activity, and respiration--is both an eponym and an acronym.
Publishers use the term up lit to describe contemporary novels with an upbeat message focusing on kindness and empathy.
Shawn, who lives in Washington State, is used to hearing the phrase right up your alley to describe something that's particularly fitting for someone. Then she heard a British vlogger use the phrase right up your street in the same way. Since the early 1900s, the phrases right up one's alley, or right down one's alley, or the more old-fashioned in one's street, all mean pretty much the same thing. Both up one's alley and up one's street suggest the idea of a place that's quite familiar. In its original sense, alley meant a wide space lined with trees, deriving from the French alee.
Publishers use the term up lit to describe contemporary novels with an upbeat message focusing on kindness and empathy.
To have one's work cut out comes from an earlier phrase to have all one's work cut out. Picture a tailor who's working as fast as possible with the help of an assistant who's cutting out the pieces to be sewn. If you have your work cut out for you, you have a big job ahead, with a series of smaller tasks coming at you thick and fast.
A cabochon is a convex gem or bead that's highly polished but not faceted. 
Scott from Copper Canyon, Texas, wonders about a expression he heard from his childhood in the Deep South: neat but not gaudy. He understood it to mean appropriate, but not over the top. The expression goes back to 1600s and has many variations. Early versions and elaborations included as Neat but not gaudy, said the devil when he painted his tail pea-green, or Neat but not gaudy, said the devil when he tied up his tail with a red ribbon. Sometimes the artistic creature was a monkey.
Twitter user @crookedroads770 observed that his two-year-old son referred to an owl as a wood penguin.

Episode #683 - Rhythm & Booze: Bad, Bad Whiskey!

Rhythm & Booze: Bad, Bad Whiskey!Rhythm & Booze: Bad, Bad Whiskey!

The "Juke In The Back" once again raises a glass in our Rhythm & Booze series. This time, the entire program is dedicated to that Bad, Bad Whiskey. For some, whiskey ruined their happy home, but for others, a Half-Pint-A Whiskey set the stage for good times. Lucky Millinder along with Wynonie Harris (his first time on record) will ask that musical question of "Who Threw The Whiskey In The Well," and Bull Moose Jackson will answer it accordingly. Amos Milburn is the star of the show as no other R&B artist sang so often and so thoroughly about booze, especially whiskey. Matt The Cat spins three of Milburns' whiskey platters as well as two solo whiskey sides from Wynonie Harris. We'll go swimming in a sea of whiskey with Willie Dixon and his Big Three Trio and find out if whiskey helps your gambling habit with Sticks McGhee. So pour the bourbon, scotch and corn whiskey as we get all hopped up on that juice for this week's "Juke In The Back" and the "soul that came BEFORE Rock n' Roll."
