Get out of the way, hank Levine!
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:12am josephteilhard:

That Cymbals song is so obscure.... omg. can't find anything about it online. So good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 9:15am Ken From Hyde Park:

The James Brown instrumental seems to be the bed music from a former WFMU DJ (Hatch, maybe?).
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 9:16am glenn:

all right! ira the k is the man. p.s. - the mets suck.
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:16am Santos L Halper:

Good morning Bob and Ira. Happy Marathon! And Savannah is same time as y'all BTW.
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:22am Santos L Halper:

Wonder if that Sneakers is different than the comp I got many years ago; Ryko maybe?
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:33am Santos L Halper:

It's 9:32 on my phone here in the SAV

Speaking of radio heroes, check out the back panel of my "WFMU Airwave Idol" trading card from the 2004 Marathon: blogfiles.wfmu.org...

speaking of radio heroes. ^^^^^
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:50am Santos L Halper:

Time does move a little differently down here, I'll allow. That's why we love it! And Ira, I won't even bring up how you didn't play my song the other night cuz it was such a great set ; ). Next year...
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:57am 293:

Bob,

What sparked your interested in 'only' tracks (only vocals, only horns...)?
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:09am Alfred Ron Richards:

Saw the Endless Boogie/Steven Malkmus show in DC last night...outstanding choogling from the former, who only played 2.5 songs, each of Yes length, and a world-class rendition of The Mac's "Oh Well" from Malker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 10:12am SeanG:

Hey Doug, McCabe and Mrs. Miller is my favorite movie too! EPIC
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:13am Chris H:

Bob B, the only reason to get up on Saturday mornings.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:21am Alfred Ron Richards:

McCabe: In my Top 5 Altman films...wonderful deconstruction of practically every aspect of the tradition western, if I can say that w/o being a pretentious b-hole.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:22am HarktheUmpire:

Beertalk on a Saturday morning! I'm in!
Ira, what's your favourite beer when touring Europe?
I saw you guys play in Prague (loved every minute of it!) and, though I don't mean to slag off American beer, I'm sure you'll admit the Czech have a pretty good thing going. or? Not as good a thing as the Belgians do though.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:28am Toddophonic:

Bob claims not to know me. The flip of "Break Away" is "Celebrate The News".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 10:33am Caryn:

McCabe and Mrs. Miller is fantastic, but my favourite film is another western: Once Upon a Time in the West. The reimagining of wild west myths and history away from white men and towards women and minorities. Great use of music, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 10:34am Doug Schulkind:

@SeanG
Yes! Altman's use of music is uniformly brilliant. Leonard Cohen never sounded so good as in that soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 10:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

Any listeners/pledgers from Bosnia and Herzegovina today? Happy Independence Day to those residents.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:44am tedbrinkley:

not from there, just BOBsnia and pungent HerbZegovinia....!
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:47am Jay:

Fave Stones LP: Satanic Majesties
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:47am Chris H:

Hard to argue with Aftermath, but I've always dug Between the Buttons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/1/14 10:48am Uncle Michael:

This is my favorite Beefheart album too. Stones...probably Exile.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:48am Dano59:

My sincere but controversial favorite: Metamorphosis
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:49am glenn:

veronika voss. i've probably seen it 15 times.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:50am Dano59:

Bob is my favorite NRBQ fan / scholar
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:51am Chris H:

Mine too
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:52am JSG:

Judging by this, I'd say the answer to Ira's Association Q is no.

Fave Stones: Exile On Main St., followed closely by Beggars Banquet. Let It Bleed and Satanic Majesties fighting it out for third (order changes with my mood).
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:53am glenn:

exile, then some girls.

Great stuff as always Bob. You and Ira make a good team; looking forward to DMandl next week.

Bob! You've earned my respect yet again! ;)

Favourite Stones LP -- Aftermath [ UK release, not the USA London label one ]
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:58am Nanker de Tucson:

Excellent show again today, BobB !

Ira's right, its hard to get more exotic than Passaic.
