Listener comments!

  Sun. 4/25/10 3:05am Chris:

I enjoy such a nice contrast from the three hours of metal vocals to the smooth sound of Chet Baker!
  Sun. 4/25/10 3:06am Joe:

Thanks, Chris--I could play Chet for an hour. Maybe I will one of these days.
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:41am Brian in UK:

This Red Sorvine is doing me. I'm welling up , Joe
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:42am Joe:

I like the fact that he goes away...for six years! And then he's surprised that his family is gone.
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:45am Brian in UK:

Just seen that you played Belle earlier. That stands with the best of any of the Reverends. Dang if it ain't started raining here.
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:48am Joe:

I wanted to play a different track from the album, but alas, it's not in the WFMU library! (look of shock) It's been raining here all night, but (so far) not in my heart.
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:48am Brian in UK:

Yeah, I got that six year line. Killer. Want to plant my potatoes today, May be too wet. That sounds like some blues euphemism.
  Sun. 4/25/10 4:51am Joe:

Ha ha ha! Maybe you can do something with your rutabagas.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:04am Brian in UK:

It's that really fine stuff that soaks you thru. Off to check if the chooks have laid this morning. The Yachts! I love this station cause you have the reverse sense of pop.Love for English groups that we seem to have the opposite feeling for American groups over here.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:07am Brian in UK:

I think it's going to rain today?
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:08am Rachel Malheure:

Berlin is nice and sunny - very sunny!!! so europe isn't dark at all:)
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:10am Joe:

Yay, I'm glad it's sunny in Berlin!!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:18am Joe:

Here you go, Brian!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:22am Brian in UK:

I'm guessing that Alan Price the keyboard player in The Animals may have picked up on that song 'cause he covered Simon Smith later when he was solo. Sorry sounds a bit nerdy.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:24am Rachel Malheure:

Thnx for the good sounding stuff! gotta go now - work's callin with a mono sonorous voice...have a nice day!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:24am Joe:

Ha ha! Price was gone by this time, but although he was the first to record Newman from the group, Burdon recorded the most: There are 4 RN songs on this LP!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:25am Joe:

Take care, Rachel--sorry you have to work on Sunday!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:29am Brian in UK:

You are the man. Rains stopped, might have to cut & run, Joe. Davy, the Fat Boy always does me. You'll be playing Fever Tree next!!!
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:31am Joe:

I was going to play "Big Brother" by Calvin Grayson, a sort of early song on the same theme of "brotherly love," but I chose Erma instead...I might yet! Have a good one, Brian.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:33am Jay:

thanks joe great music for our hangovers just perfect for us
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:35am Joe:

Thanks, Jay, glad the sounds are restorative this morning...
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:43am Me:

Does anybody know what Kevin Ayers song Joe uses?
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:48am Joe:

I can tell if you like. :)
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:49am Me:

Yes please. I think you've told me before but I've forgotten.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:54am Joe:

It's from a demo collection called "What More Can I Say..." I think it's called "Crystal Clear," but I already forget! Anyway, it's a great CD.
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:56am Me:

Thanks
  Sun. 4/25/10 5:59am Looms:

Hi Joe!
Bettye Swann sounds so good! Glad to hear this song on that rainy sunday morning.
