great to hear you guys! happy sunday to you and thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 5:21pm Uncle Michael:

Richard Evans is the man playing the astonishing bass line on King Floyd's "Groovy Situation." It's one of my favorites of all time. Please play that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:21pm JakeGould:

Like shows that edumacate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 5:22pm Uncle Michael:

Gene Chandler...geez...bad brain fart! Not King Floyd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 5:23pm Uncle Michael:

And not apropos of today's show but because James is in the studio...the Dark Star with Bill Frisell, James....wow. Thank you for making that music. I'm seeing Bill in a couple weeks.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:24pm Mark Ohe:

Good to hear you both on air together. Like the tag-team format!

Enjoying the Sunday-night (for me) music.

i worry that some folks might've been tempted to give STDs a try on the strength of that johnnie taylor track.

Oh cripes, I love Wado City so much.

I'm getting behind this record. They don't need to pay me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:51pm JakeGould:

Wonderful show for a thawing NYC Sunday.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:52pm Bob in Oakland:

I can't be the only one here thinking Zachary Brimstead, Esq.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:55pm Ira B. Eckhardt (6 years old):

I've had Pastor T. L. Barrett on my mix for my entire life.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:58pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

WTF was that? And where is Gaylord Fields
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:59pm JakeGould:

The one you know as Gaylord Fields is gone…

If wfmu is playing Christian music it can only be....ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!

The Mets could use a Mookie Wilson and a Daryl Strawberry. As a die hard mets fan I'm not looking forward to another loosing season
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:10pm Uncle Michael:

This is my favorite version of California Soul.

I went to tell Larry Grogan you were doing this tribute, Ira...and he already knew.
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:12pm whattawino:

This Marlena Shaw is killin' me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:14pm JakeGould:

Why doesn’t somebody make a Mookie Strawberry shake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:15pm braveness23:

Just stopped by to update my avatar. Good show, BTW.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:17pm Uncle Michael:

They tried, Jake. They ran out of cocaine.
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:18pm Mark Ohe:

Crazy to think that Evans worked with Woddy Herman, Gang Starr and Sun Ra. Hi Georgia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this arrangement 'Hush' is all that ! ( - a formative tune for me due to Deep Purple 45)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:21pm JakeGould:

A Mookie Strawberry shake should come with 18 chicken McNuggets and 1 order of fries.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:23pm glenn:

we will happily trade dickey and thole back to the mets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:25pm dale:

a fine show with cheesy covers. only an fmu listener could relate. cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:26pm JakeGould:

Dale, there is no cheese. No guilty pleasures. NONE!
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Mark Ohe:

Hold on now! Gang Starr was a sample? Then I take back my comment, and will modify it to: Amazing that Evans worked with "Bob."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Uncle Michael:

There is cheese! But no, there should be no guilty musical pleasures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Uncle Michael:

Mr. Peepers got some soul.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:31pm Toddophonic:

My goodness Wally Cox is versatile! If I didn't trust Ira & James so implicitly I would never believe this is the same dude who voiced "Underdog".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:32pm dale:

i LOVE cheesy covers - do you not know me? hee hee - can there be TWO wally coxeses?

i've never been lucky enough to catch yo la tengo live, but if this is any indication of their witty between song repartee, count me in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm dale:

nice show fill-in fellows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm Uncle Michael:

Great Evans tribute, gentlemen. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

  Sun. 2/22/15 6:55pm P-90:

Thanks, Ira! Tough to do justice to Gaylord's slot, but you met that challenge handily (with aplomb even) today.
Looking forward your next cameo appearance.
