Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

Hey Greg. I made a station ID for you and Ginny many years ago, and some fewer years ago promised Ginny that I would make another one; I did so, but forgot about it before I got a chance to send it, and have had a computer crash since then. I won't make any promises this time, but I will try to get something together.

I work downtown and tried to listen in the car while out for lunch. Unfortunately the hiss and static made it unlistenable. Is signal quality expected to improve over time?

I'm a programmer also! We're very excited about this. Don't forget all the programmers you hear are volunteers and do this for the love of their shows and the radio medium...not a paycheck. We also need UNDERWRITERS if you need some radio "advertising" on the cheap. Check out my show and all the others. https://www.facebook.com/IndieBohemiansRFN

Re: “Dez Dickerson on Prince, Purple Rain, and the Most Insane Thing He's Seen on Stage

Dez, I remember fondly your pre-Prince days playing with Mike Valasquez at the Lamb's Club in St Paul. We were and are proud of what you've accomplished. I remember those jams in Mike's basement when you played with my great late friend John Johnson. Best of luck and appreciation with all you do.

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

I am Greg J. Welsch, the general manager of RFN. We are extremely happy and proud that we have been able to take our signal citywide. As we state in our mission: "Believing that democracy cannot function if only a few have access to the media, Radio Free Nashville, Inc. (RFN) intends to be a community forum for the music, voices, and viewpoints generally ignored or misrepresented by the corporate media." This was something we have been working on for many years. Dave Weil was on the air at RFN with Pop Top from the first week we signed on in April, 2005 and been a huge supporter and part of our RFN family ever since. I am truly saddened that he won't able able to share a new "Pop Top" and the great music that never got any airplay on corporate radio with the Nashville community and be part of RFN citywide. Rest in peace, dear friend!

Dave was a bud, and will be truly missed--on the air and in the flesh.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

@Mr. Pink, the dinner-table scene in Shadow where Uncle Charlie reveals his true, murderous self never fails to chill. Frenzy is great, too, and if I recall right, the scenes that concern home-cooked or -stewed food are as horrifying as the main action. Shadow is def in my top 5 Hitch movies, too.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

@Mark: You may have a point about the public preferring Stewart in innocuous roles (after all, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE was a dud on release). But Stewart played neurotic, often unlikable characters for much of the decade — most notably in Anthony Mann's great Westerns and in some of Hitchcock's biggest hits of the 50s (like REAR WINDOW and the remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, where he's a pretty hateful character — the scene where he drugs Doris Day is appalling).

@Edd: Ahh, Uncle Charlie. SHADOW OF A DOUBT's a top 5 Hitchcock for me — maybe the first of his meta-movies about voyeurism and the fascination of otherwise innocuous people with violence and murder. Jon Finch in the enormously disturbing FRENZY fits that category also.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

I love "Vertigo." Scotty is such a dupe, but I feel for him and his need for glamour and adventure. Hitchcock is great if not always deep, but I think Joseph Cotten in "Shadow of a Doubt" and Stewart in "Vertigo" go deeper. Hitchcock often deals in ambiguity that can be contrived, but his actors, from Cotten to Stewart to Grant and even Bruce Dern in "Family Plot," often add something beyond that.

Re: “Battle of Franklin: 150 Years Later, The Blood Hasn't Dried

Most of the butchered were Christians killing other Christians. The Bible embraces war,vengeance and slavery,everything the Civil War stood for.

"But as a study of the agonizing depths of obsession, and the dark places masculine adoration can go, it's without equal."

That's just the problem for some people. They don't want to go to those dark places. And they don't want to see Jimmy Stewart playing such a disturbed (and disturbing) character. I think VERTIGO is great, but I know I'll never convince some people of its greatness.

War is a symptom of mans total depravity. Man cannot end war because we are at war with God and our neighbor from birth. Man only stops waging war against God and neighbor when God gives him a new heart in Christ. Wars will not cease until Christ's return

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

I get it in some ways: if you watch it expecting a conventional mystery, or the macabre entertainments that had been Hitchcock's hallmark throughout the decade, it's a sure letdown. The murder plot is pretty ridiculous; the thriller elements are muted; the resolution is a bewildering ice bath no matter how you feel about the rest.

But as a study of the agonizing depths of obsession, and the dark places masculine adoration can go, it's without equal. Watching it is dreaming with your eyes open. The dream doesn't end well.

Re: “Battle of Franklin: 150 Years Later, The Blood Hasn't Dried

Yes..victors like to build a monument where they won a battle......but with such a terrible loss as at Franklin, what would a monument there in the South say? "Here we butchered our men and boys so that we could say we gave those damned Yankees a fight!" War. It's nothing but a contest about who is willing to inflict the greater suffering upon human beings. War has no honor. Men tell themselves they killed another human being as a sworn duty..as a necessity...but there is no necessity, there is only saying to yourself, "Either I participate in bloodshed, or I do not." Any man can choose to walk away. Yes; insane people gain power and seek to visit their insanity upon innocents. We take up arms against these criminals to punish them, and to establish order. But how do these insane people gain their positions to begin with? It is because we have established, throughout history, that warfare is a means to an end...and until we decide to break this tragic pattern, we model for continuing generations the greatest of insanities: that man killing man brings justice, establishes order and is the way to peace.
