    Dusty in Memphis
    Brilliant, wonderful, Dusty. Mrs MDH and I brought home the relatively new Boxset “The Magic of Dusty”, always something different and interesting including a different arrangement of “I only want to be with you”

    Dusty is shameless pandering and much appreciated.

    I have been watching one of my true guilty pleasures – The Tour de France (Birgit, Kat should have rolled out Kraftwerk, native sons of Dusseldorf which is almost Bochum). It is such great visual as the riders blasted through Corsica and almost bought it when a random white dog was in the middle of the road as the peloton arrived.

    Tonight is O.A.R. At Meadowbrook, I neither get it nor want to but go because my buddy likes them. I typically sit there with my arms crossed. Basically I am the only guy in the room that doesn’t get the joke.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I always think of you when I post a Dusty as I know you’ll be pleased, an understatement I know. (yup, shameless pandering)

      I can’t think of a Dusty I don’t like or one I’m even lukewarm about.

      I can watch for only a short while before my eyes start to glaze over. I would have liked seeing that dog.

      I’m laughing at the image I have of all theses fans screaming and clapping and one Hedley sitting with a scowl and his arms crossed-a delightfully funny image.

      Kat, thanks for NOT rolling out Kraftwerk.
      Hedley, this is real Düsseldorf music played in the Bochum soccer stadium:

      A soccer song: “I will never go to the FC Bayern Munich!”

        Birgit, no Daft Punk? no Kraftwerk ? But you promote Jane Birkin’s excessively naughty “Je T’aime”….. WILD in Bochum 🙂
        I feel the same way about Arsenal as you do about the southern German team.

        Kat, I know very little about OAR other than this will be the second time I have seen one of their shows. I don’t easily hide my lack of interest.

        Dusty is the greatest female singer of all time

      • katry Says:

        Birgit,
        Happy to accommodate!

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        I did go to youtube to listen to them. I do that most times when I don’t know the musician or the bands you mention.

      • Hedley Says:

        Cut it out Kat, Kraftwerks “tour de France” would have be consistent with weekendkat, and nice to Bochum and a lot better than the really naughty songs that Birgit has been promoting.

        Like could you imagine Judy Collins disrobing for a record cover, and the censors requiring that you had to be 21 to buy her version of Je T’aime ?????

        That Birgit is a siren.

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        Judy disrobing? Birgit posting naughty songs? What is KTCC becoming? Do it need to be wrapped in brown paper?

      • Hedley Says:

        Maybe it should be like a beer access site (assuming that I ever went to like a beer access site) where you have to enter your date of birth. Of course it is a little irritating when you (me) are continually scrolling down to find your (my) year of birth.

        I totally blame Birgit for the new naughtiness, with im6 all we had to worry about was the Beach Boys “live” on QVC.

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        As if lies are uncommon! You’re right-I am so tired of scrolling down then scrolling down some more.

        And I thought The Beach Boys were a problem!

      • Birgit Says:

        Siren 🙂
        May I bring down passions with this link?:
        London songs @ http://www.halfhearteddude.com
        (No guarantee, I didnn’t listen to the whole mix, just some songs on YouTube, including the Tottenham song and Waterloo Sunset.)

      • katry Says:

        Birgit,
        I downloaded so I can listen to the whole album-thanks!! Passions subdued!

    Mad for Dusty.

  3. Patricianne Says:

    Dusty is truly a legend. Nothing beats listening to her on a lovely Sunday afternoon

    • katry Says:

      Patricianne,
      I totally agree but would add nothing beats listening to her on a rainy Sunday, my weather for the day.
