Never heard that Kinks cut. Almost as fast as The Dickies.

Talk about an eternal artist. You hear Chuck Berry everywhere. He made a whole bunch of building blocks that you can't work without if you claim to play rock and roll.

Got to see ELO play 'Roll Over, Beethoven' where the double bass was played like a guitar and a single green laser squiggled on the ceiling. Cutting edge rock theatrics in the 70's.

Congrats on another great Marathon, Joe B!
  Mon. 3/20/17 12:53pm Angela:

Four times today the player online has just stopped playing. I don't think it's the sound cutting out, it's like the player pauses after a time. When I push play the set starts over from the beginning, and I instead have to closer the player and reopen it from the website.
  Mon. 3/20/17 12:54pm Cooh John:

Thanks Joe. It was a great experience. On par with the time I got to sing Johnny B. Goode with Eddie Angel backing me.
  Mon. 3/20/17 12:57pm Mark in Toronto:

Mr. Edmunds has covered at least 4 or 5 Chuck Berry songs. Also good is Shadows of Knight doing Let It Rock

Don't forget a semi-obscure B-side called Drifting Heart, beautifully covered by Tav Falco's Panther Burns

Todd, it has to do with the exchange rate.

I'll see your 30 Days and raise you 10.

Great job these past two weeks Joe and All of WFMU.

By my count it will be 70 days before he gets home
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/20/17 1:05pm Gaylord Fields:

@Mark in Toronto: I'm no Canadian lawyer, but I believe there's a hate-crimes statute that adds 10 days to any maple-syrup-related infraction.

@Joe B: The Capitol version of "She's a Women" is so echo-drenched, it's practically a different song!

The version Reelin' on the London Sessions is great musically, a bit much with the extra raunchy lyrics.

Listening to my older sisters' records growing up, I think I played The Beatles 'Rock and Roll Music' (not this version) and The Faces 'Memphis' more than anything else. I am also pretty sure that it was a long time before I knew they were a) covers and b) written by the same person!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 1:40pm Scott C. from New Hartford:

I always love hearing "All Aboard", in which Chuck hops a train that first winds its way through my neck of the woods "...Albany and on we go/Utica, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo"

Part of the genius of "Nadine" is revealed in the last verse, when Chuck explains why she's worth all the tsuris.

Skyhooks did a great version of Let It Rock. Australian bands loved their Chuck Berry. I swear in 1975-76 every band had to release a cover of his.

Still can't get over Australia almost ruining Eurovision last year by, like, trying to win it and stuff.

I'm always amazed by the things that Aussies go absolutely bug-eyed pee-pants gaga over, like Abba or Seinfeld.

Thanks for this one, Joe!!

But do they like Lady Gaga?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/20/17 2:36pm MD:

Hail Hail WFMU!!! HAIL HAIL ROCK AND ROLL!!!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:40pm Cecile:

they LOVE Eurovision, too. Now they are officially part of the song contest!

I got turned on to Monty Python and Roger Glover's the Butterfly Ball when I was down there, too.

Billy Joel, Blondie, and Little Feat all came to Australia and people adored them. After that, they all went back to the States and started doing very well.

About Gaga, I don't know. Probably doing quite well down there.

@Cecile: Have you been back in recent years?

Man I wish this whole show would go on another 3 hrs.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:42pm Cecile:

No, sadly. I'd love to go back. My old high school classmates checked in with me a few years back...

I'd love to go to Australia or New Zealand someday. It's on my bucket list.

I would bet dollars to donuts that were there members of the Stooges and MC5 in that audience.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:47pm Cecile:

it's like hotels without a 13th floor. Bad luck
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:49pm Joe B:

ah great point!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:49pm Cecile:

that's just a guess. but maybe?

I'm back in Kansas and I'm missing the station.

Australians love Maria Bamford, a comedian that most people in the U.S. don’t know about.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:52pm Cecile:

ah, you got to Havana Moon!
  Mon. 3/20/17 2:52pm JakeGould:

Get this guy off the stage! I paid to see Pink Floyd!
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:52pm Cecile:

They love Scharpling down there, too, I'm told.

Maria Bamford is brilliant.
Avatar Mon. 3/20/17 2:54pm Power Papi:

I think Havana Moon was the inspiration for Richard Berry's Louie Louie

Saw Chuck in '88 at the Poughkeepsie civic center--he was backed by local dweebs improbably named Fat Max and the Bluescasters. It made no difference to us, it was like going to Mt. Olympus or getting an audience with the Pope. At the concert's end, Chuck invited the audience onstage to dance during "Johnny B. Goode". Pure shit show. As Chuck was duckwalking, a 13 year old kid touched Chuck's arm--Chuck took three fingers and poked the kid in the sternum--hard!--and pushed the acolyte about 3 feet back. I turned to my buddy and said, "rule #1: you don't touch Chuck." In all ways, nobody does, even now.
