Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/8/14 9:57am KP:

Guido, just noticed your comment re: the Who. They still had the styled hair and sequined suits and did a lot of harmonies over a raging wall of sound. I was in fourth row in front of Townshend. I saw them many times after that but nothing compared. I never warmed to the synth sound and and preferred Daltrey's smooth high voice to his ragged screaming one. but i of course love them always.

I'm still angry on German TV that they changed "Beat Club" to full playback during the most intersting years (mid 1966 to mid 1968) mostly. what a shame!

@Joe McG: The Skippers were a dynamite band. I used to see em' a lot. Still local to Brew City where I'm at :)
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:26am Cecile:

here's Jerry's version of nearly the exact same situation:
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:27am Joe McG:

Not so bad, Mike. He didn't use it in the scatological way.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:27am Cecile:

No that's not the song I'm thinking of. But, you can never go wrong with a little Jerry Reed.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:27am Joe McG:

@Cecile: You are the biggest Jerry Reed fan I ever knew. I'll have to play some Jerry one of these weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/8/14 11:28am Mike East:

I was not offended :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/8/14 11:28am Jeff:

Nice shoutout in the song to noted guitarist Nels Cline WHO WAS JUST HERE AT WFMU (playing with Cibo Matto)
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:29am Cecile:

You don't know many Jerry Reed fans, do you Joe?
I mention him in bars up north, and people get misty.

Here's the right song:

joe, dude, i have a lot of work to get done. please quit killing it so much.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:33am Joe McG:

Aw, Kurt, you rule.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:36am Cecile:

Any Mark Kozelek song would be improved by a Jerry Clower cameo.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:37am Brian in UK:

Nice one, Joe.

@Cecile: Billy Jam has played a MC from Mpls called Mally. I'm more interested in DJs, but he's pretty good. Seems related to the 5th element/Rhymesayers/Soundset crowd. I like it when I get a handwritten not with a CD. Soundset looks like a fine festival
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:37am Joe McG:

@Brian: In honor of your Nick Lowe gig tonight!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:37am Brian in UK:

Never forget that hype where they were sent over to NY.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:39am Cecile:

I want to go to Soundset some year. I'm not so excited about Mpls rap except for Bro Ali, but last year they had Eligh and the Grouch who reportedly killed it.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:39am Joe McG:

@Brian: This number is showing their roots a bit (it's very close to "Caravan"), but very nice nonetheless.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:39am Cecile:

And i learned about Eligh and the Grouch from Billy Jam!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:41am Brian in UK:

That and the Miracles earlier worth the entrance fee alone. Better go and slide into my flares and afghan. See you later.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:42am Sem Chumbo:

Cryin' my eyes out. Nice going, Joe.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:42am Cecile:

And I do need to get to the 5th Element. Never had the chance to get there, and it sounds like a place I'd love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 5/8/14 11:44am fred:

@Cecile: Looks like they're in the lineup this year too, and its a few weeks away: www.soundsetfestival.com
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:46am Cecile:

oooh, Qbert. And I like Toki Wright.
I'd probably hang out in the DJ tent all day.

I should see if my friend Dave wants to go. He likes Atmosphere and all that. I have still never been to a live rap show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/8/14 11:47am Greg from Bloomfield:

For real, Joe. I often find myself needing to steel myself emotionally for the back end of your show.
Avatar Thu. 5/8/14 11:48am Cecile:

wow, this is new Real Kids?

What? No Voivod this week? A fine show nonetheless, and for a change I didn't have work getting in the way
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/8/14 11:58am davex:

Thanks for broadcasting, Joe!
