If I Had a Hammer...

Your Bloviator's good friend Banished Child of Eve (who seems keen on testing the limits of our friendship) sent me a link to a website called Keep the Fire Burning, which contains podcasts of music used in Catholic folk masses in the 60s and 70s, taken from scratchy ol' records to add authenticity. The stated aim of the site, which would surely make the bravest soul shudder, is "making the Folk Mass music come alive once again."

Catholics, of course, don't believe in reincarnation so we have little to fear on that account but keeping in mind Santayana's famous dictum, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," we should all sample some of the wares on the site; re-familiarizing ourselves with that commie guitar-fiddle-banjo crap just in case somebody tries to foist it on us one more time when we're not paying attention.
