Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 9:48am Wild Neil:

@Marcel-well, when you live in this area for awhile its The Southtowns that get hammered 90% of the time (7 feet of snow in snowvember was West Seneca and parts of Hamnurg) since it follows the west wind off of Lake Erie....up in Amherst NY where I work and in Niagara County NY near Lockport its rare to get over a foot of snow...draw a diagonal line aligned with the centerline of Lake Erie and where it hits land is where it gets hammered for the most part..

Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 9:52am Wild Neil:

@Marcell-I just looked at a map and realized I misspoke...everything due west of Lake Erie gets HAMMERED...since the weather and wind travel generally from west to east...

Hey Mike! And yes, having a classic rock foundation is important for understanding music in general, and the many different directions it can go. You can appreciate the irony in Kenny G playing the Led Zeppelin "IV" 8-track about to disintegrate having genuinely listened through and through.

That was my idea for a "DJ SAT", quiz prospective DJs on the minutiae of various songs. Match the song titles to the early 60s "Bobby" that sang them, and same thing with the early 60s "Barbaras" ;)

He's playing with the melody on this take.

@sphere: Wow, I didn't know Evan Dando did this one. I sort of want to hear that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:20am sphere:

Joe, it was on Lovey i think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:21am Marcel M:

No worries! Off to work, see you soon.
  Mon. 2/8/16 11:21am Brendan:

@Brian - aye. I'm happy to be one of the latter. Can't wait for spring to get out there again, albeit with a rear view helmet mirror. Got taken out by a car from behind last time. Texting i guess.

Thanks, sphere! Take care, Marcel! @Dean: Poor JC!

@Brendan know the feeling had the broken leg from the car pulling out of the side turning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:25am Brian in UK:

Notorious is still bluddy great. An album made out of chaos like all good art.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:26am Joe McG:

@Brian: You mean the Duran Duran album, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:26am Parq:

Can't place this Hickory Wind song -- who had the well-known version of this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

All about TheBYrdS Parq.

Thanks, Rev Rab. By the way, I have mixed feelings about "Shelly's" done as a woman addressing a man.

@Brian: The dog is looking up at you expectantly.

Joe are you kidding. He is having a meaningful relationship with the radiator.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:34am Matt from Springfield:

1970-era folk rock, very nice stuff Joe!
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:34am Joe McG:

@Brian: Ha ha ha!
  Mon. 2/8/16 11:34am steve:

if time for a request, how bout some peter fonda or gene clark?
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:35am Joe McG:

@Steve: I like that "Hired Hand" soundtrack. Gene Clark is always great, let me see how this set goes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:38am Brian in UK:

On the tribute line. Has there ever been a Who Tribute album?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:38am Carmichael:

Heya Joe and crewe.
  Mon. 2/8/16 11:38am Santos L Halper:

Great stuff today Joe! Maybe Dan Hicks would fit in well; RIP : /
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@BrianUK: several.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:40am Joe McG:

@Santos: That's a nice idea, actually. I'm kind of sidestepping tributes these days. Too many dead. But yes, RIP Dan Hicks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:41am ChrisB.:

This Wayfaring Strangers comp look very interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:42am Brian in UK:

Thanks Rev, I had no idea.

Like this GP quote about the Eagles "He thought that bands like the Eagles were pretty much missing the point".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:43am doctorjazz:

Bobby Dylan, in his country crooner incarnation, love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:43am ChrisB.:

Know who does a nice version of this: Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:44am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yikes. Bob is no Everlys (they own this).
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:44am Matt from Springfield:

Self Portrait, not so familiar w/ that album (except for his own version of "If Not For You") - sounds worth listening to further!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:46am Brian in UK:

You cannot beat family singing.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:47am Matt from Springfield:

True that Brian. (Phil & Don especially)
  Mon. 2/8/16 11:52am Dean:

Self Portrait featured that odd hit, "Wigwam." The album was left out of a box set of Dylan LPs c. 2003.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/8/16 11:52am doctorjazz:

If Not For You was on New Morning (which is a great album, as opposed to Self Portrait, which was a fun album imo).
  Mon. 2/8/16 11:52am Brendan:

Midnight oh yea, Happy Chinese New Year Joe . Look forward to monkeying around with you guys in the coming year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:54am ChrisB.:

Anyone who like this Everly sound should check out The Cactus Blossoms.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 11:55am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening and commenting everyone--happy new year!

Thanks Joe
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:56am Parq:

Dr. J, "New Morning" is one of my favorite Bob albums, too, and it clocks in at lest than a half hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 11:57am Parq:

Fine, fine show, Joe.
