Art T. to be off line for a while

From: Art Thieme

Howdy folks,

My son Chris will be revamping my whole computer over the next few days--weeks--months--years--whatever. I'll miss hanging here and fully expect to have withdrawal pains that rival the ones Rush Limbaugh will soon be having. So please don't P.M. me or send e-mail as I won't be reading it.

All the best,

Art Thieme

That's the only way I've ever heard it pronounced, as Bill says, and that includes a live intro of him on his CD, "The Older I Get, the Better I Was."

For anyone who hasn't heard him, I highly recommend his CD and tapes from Folk Legacy. You can read more about his CD in this thread. Then you'll hear why I call him our Fine Art!

Having met Art in person, having seen him perform, having been in email contact with him for background on some of his songs, I can tell you that Mudcat is the poorer for his temporary absence. When I open a thread I always scan the red list to see if Art or his pal (and mine!)Jerry Rasmussen are among the respondants.

Ahh, Open Mike.......You are dealing with a VERY priviledged character here! I and two friends have a radio show (recorded folk music)on KRCU FM, a public radio station in Cape Girardeau, MO. The show is recorded and broadcast on KBIA, Columbia, Mo. and its two repeater stations. We play the pre-recorded show at 7PM every Saturday. Art's song ran on the 11th of October, but I will play it again on Nov. 15th. You can access information about the show at www.yourfolkconnection.org. If you go to www.krcu.org you can tie into our streaming audio. The thing that makes me privileged, however, is a tape that was sent me several months ago from a source who shall remain nameless. It consists of 90 minutes of unreleased Art Thieme material! And that is where the song mentioned above comes from. Art knows I have the tape and has given me permission to use in on the air. Priviledged? I think so!

Art says it rhymes with "theme" However if it can be useful in a good joke or pun (and with Art's jokes and puns, 'good' is always a relative description), then it might be rhymed with "Thyme".

Poor Art. He's missing all sorts of things while he's away. Perhaps we should prepare a news summary of 'Cat doings for him. For instance,

katlaughing and any others who might want to listen: To hear our program "Your Folk Connection", go to www.krcu.org for streaming audio on Saturdays at 7:00PM CST. We can also be found on www.kbia.org and audioed (is that a word?) there during the same time period.
    We push the definition of folk in all directions. Old time, English pub, bluegrass, Australian, singer/songwriter, and Art Thieme.
We have guest singers come through on occasion and record shows or parts of shows with them.
    The program is really three programs in one---each of we three hosts brings about 20 minutes of music and blather and do our little segment with the other two sitting there and commenting on the songs and each other.

Howdy folks.   It's me, Art. I'm at the library here in Peru (Illinois--USA). It is tuesday---October 21st, '03

Just went to the eye doctor and I am dilated. But I had to stop in and say hello !! Doing good. Have read 3 books since signing off. A short bio with his letters of ED RICKETTS ---the marine biologist who was the model for DOC in John Steinbeck's smaller superb work titled CANNERY ROW---always has been one of my favorites. Also read Arthur Schlesinger's (hell, I can't remember the title right now---but it was quite insightful). And am about to start a book titled "1929" --- a novel about Bix Beiderbecke and his era. Good reviews prompte me in that direction.
But Chris is working on the machine----and 75 others where he works. So it may be a while before I get back here regular like.

Thanks for your nice comments. And, yes, my 2 records for Sandy and Caroline at Folk Legacy (www.folklegact.com) are now available from them only as CDs. But you already knew that, right? ;-)

Will talk to you later when I am undilated.

Love to all,

I just saw this and thought of Art's Loch Ness story:

Recently, smugglers threw tons of pot overboard to avoid being apprehended. The weed drifted to shore where it was immediately eaten by gulls, kittiwakes and other sea birds. It has been reported that by the end of the week there wasn't a tern unstoned.

I had a nice phone visit with Himself, yesterday. He sounded really good and said to tell you all he is doin' good, as is Carol. Their granddaughter has spent the night and I could hear her in the background keeping them busy, too. They really enjoy her.

He said his son is still working on his computer; something didn't interface as expected or something. Art said he might get out to a library in the next week or so, but he's keeping occupied and sounded happy. (Ohmygawd...you mean there's LIFE without Mudcat?!**BG**)

This is from the 1985 University Press of Kentucky printing. There is a footnote (#3) to a joke about chasing a cow off a track and then coming to another that was really the first cow that the train has caught up to. "This story is also found in the reperoire of Art Theime, a modern "folksinger." Also footnote (#6) "Another item in the repertoire of Art Theime (see note 3, above)." It would seem that the editor, W.K. McNeil, caught one of your shows. I wish I might have been there.

If I'm thinking about the right tale/joke/line, it was one I used to set up any of a number of train/cow songs then on my song list.

It was about a train that went so slow that they took the cowcatcher off the engine and re-mounted it on the caboose to keep the animals from boarding the train and trampling people.

It was the Amtrack line---here in the USA---which never ran on time in those days. A hobo I knew lay down on the track to commit suicide----and starved to death !
