I just hope the Clearance Sale doesn't signal the end of this series of Theme Time Radio Hour.
We haven't had 'Carnival' for a start.

I suspect it's going to be "Clearance Sale" as #99 (and I betcha a 90 minute to 2 hr. show) and then "Carnival" as #100... and that it'll be it, at least for the season. I'm guessing this may also be the end of the series. On the other hand, in these TeT's (pat. pending), maybe Sirius XM and Mr. D. will decide its to their mutual advantage to continue on. We'll see.

Nothing wrong with that - I thought the Leftovers episode was FANTASTIC especially the next day reheated!

Regarding next week's topic, Clearance Sale; it would be a great time to play "Step Right Up" by Tom Waits

Not quite sure what's the source for Nina Simone's song "See-line Woman" (tho" I've searched around for it, being a big Nina fan) but we know for certain the title of this song is not "Sea Lion Woman." I have seen the word "seeline" used in a forties' ad for a kind of rabbit- dyed- to- look- like -seal fur coat. In other words, black, sleek, but fake elegance, cheap imitation trying to look classy, like the call girl or "ho" described in this song. This is my interpretation, so you don't have to buy it.

Found this ! >

"Sea Lion Woman", also known as "Sea-Line Woman", "See [the] Lyin' Woman" or "C-Line Woman")

On May 13, 1939, Herbert Halpert made a series of field recordings in Byhalia, MS, including several with the family of Walter and Mary Shipp. Walter, a sharecropper and minister, and Mary, a choir director, had 14 children, several of whom participated in the archival project, but the couple's two daughters, Christine and Katherine, then 19 and 20 years old, were the real standouts, delivering several rope-skipping rhymes and rhythms that still have an intimate and haunting power all these years later, particularly the eerie and mysterious fragment called "Sea Lion Woman." The lyrics of this song for keeping time are simple enough, mostly about drinking coffee and drinking tea, but there's an ominous, edgy, and unsaid eeriness about it that moves beyond words and meaning. The lyric has been given several variant titles over the years, including "Sea Lion Woman," "See Lyin' Woman," "C-Line Woman," "See-Lye Woman," "See Line Woman" (this is the title used by Nina Simone for her version), and "She Lyin' Woman," all of which only adds to the enigmatic nature of the recording that the Shipp sisters made that day. Greg Hale Jones looped the original field recording of the song to lengthen it, added electronically enhanced ambience, and placed two versions of the modernized version (still containing Christine and Katherine's vocals) on The General's Daughter soundtrack in 1999. The end result was spooky and atmospheric, but then so was the original, which continues to fascinate anyone who hears it. ~ Steve Leggett, All Music Guide

Interesting, especially the part about it being jump rope rhythmic chant. Thanks for finding that. I haven't heard the show yet, so I don't know what Bob said about it.

Maybe there will be one more season, fall 2009-spring 2010, which would explain this book-release, plannned for October 2010:

Unfortunately, the TTRH Compendium, while still listed on various book sites, seems to have died a'bornin', as its no longer listed on the publisher's - Simon & Schuster - site. The book was originally scheduled for release last October, was changed on Amazon to 2009 for awhile, and now, as you said is listed for release in 2010.

It's not uncommon for Amazon to push out publication dates in this fashion until they receive notification from the publisher that the book has been "officially" delisted. So there may still be some slight hope, but it's increasingly unlikely.
