Notable from SiriusXM Ch. 60

Outlaw Country, which is only maybe 70 percent country music, still entertains. At the moment, listening to Fraternity of Man's "Don't Bogart Me." (In the best steel guitar dancehall waltz tradition: "Don't bogart that joint, my friend/Pass it over to me ....").

There's also been a pretty good smattering of James McMurtry and Robert Earl Keen Jr. this past week, along with Johnny Cash's "Sunday Morning Coming Down."

A little while ago, Alejandro Escovedo followed David Alan Coe. Where else can you get that sort of a playlist? Well, KUT-FM ... the old KGSR, maybe. But I can't get them out here.

There's an NPR News station on SiriusXM (122), but I can't figure out if it actually streams Morning Edition or All Things Considered. Haven't heard them yet, though Talk of the Nation and Fresh Air come up at odd hours.

Speaking of Bogart, I picked-up a four-film disc week before last; it includes three seafaring tales. Haven't peeled it out of the plastic yet ... maybe this week.
