I can take them, they just don't move me. When they went pop, there was always something about Patridge's songs that put me off. I'm told the handful of songs I like by them are all written by Colin Moulding. Good to know.

I have the "Mizrab" LP, but I don't remember Gabor's version of "Summer Breeze" was this dope. I'll have to dig that out when I get home.

BTW, there's a track called "Thirteen" on this record that is that heat.

The early 90s Fantagraphics roster really changed my perspective of art and writing. In recent years, I got back into reading comics because the local library carries just about every graphic novel that comes out.

@ Tim totally with you tim. I had been involved in the "comics world" for years but there were many artists I did not get into until older and Fantagraphics made it so easy. About two or three years ago I finally found myself appreciating Crumbs work and those Complete Crumb books have been indispensable to me.

Carmichael I meant same day, same year. Hell who cares.

Alan Hull was a wonderful song writer.

HBD in advance then.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 11:31am Carmichael:

But thanks anyway, all. It's good to count heads, for those times when trouble comes.

Oh good I'm not the only one who got the Neil Young vibe out of that.

Hey, Happy Nonbirthday, Carmichael! That goes for everyone else, too!

Thanks for reminding me, Brian, that today is Beersie day! I have an extra hour or so in my schedule to quality-check the various IPAs at the boozer.

Appreciate your weakness for country rock, joe.

I've got a thirst you could photograph right now. Marstons Pedigree it is then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/20/13 11:40am ChrisB.:

Joe, you have a very enjoyable program. Good radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/20/13 11:41am Brian in UK:

@KP it is not a weakness unless The Eagles appear.

The Festival is in town this weekend. It's about beer, beer and beer. 200 of them. Too many monies for session tickets, though. I will do my sipping of creditable brews in standard bars & behavior.

love me some banjo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/20/13 11:46am Brian in UK:

Is this the same band that Chris Darrow was in? Side Trips & Beacons from Mars were always hard to find over here way back.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 11:47am Joe McG:

@Brian: That's totally what made me think of it!
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 11:47am Joe McG:

@glenn: More comin' your way!

Now we just need that high lonesome voice.

Just ordered Kalediscope. This happens with Joe more than any other show, by far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/20/13 11:50am Brian in UK:

Carmichael we had that earlier at 45rpm. Sorry Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/20/13 11:51am Brian in UK:

@KP that's how easy it is these days but forty years ago it was chase round the import shops in central London.

this is crazy. I thought he was just going to play My Favorite things, not channel John Coltrane. Pretty great.
Avatar Thu. 6/20/13 11:54am Cecile:

Brian, you aren't kidding on how hard it was to find things back in the day. Even in the 80s, I had a huge list of LPs and comics for friends all over the world.

I just have to pass on these comments to an article at CNN.com about Joe Torre's daughter catching a one-year-old who fell off a fire escape in Brooklyn:

LarryWord • 10 hours ago
Like father like daughter! Nice catch!!

mattpaul • 4 hours ago
Thank God it wasn't A-Rod -- E-5 and child goes to Emergency room.

Art Vandelay • 2 hours ago
A-Rod is no All-Star fielder, but nobody on the team is as awful a fielder as Eduardo Nunez. Guy couldn't catch a cold.

Steve • 2 hours ago
Not true, he would of caught the baby, but would of thrown it away,
