Awesome driving music, Gaylord. No idea where I'm going
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@KP: Me, neither, to be honest. As long as we don't crash into each other, we'll do fine.
  Sun. 4/30/17 8:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Gaylord and everyone! This is a cool soundtrack to make gyros to
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: I'm happy to be providing the soundtrack to your gyro party!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:39pm common:

Hi Gaylord and you. I thought that was coletrane. I was wrong and continue

Heya Gaylord and pals. Sunday night is bbq and good music night. You and me, we're a team.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@common: That mistake is very understandable.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: In that case, throw an Impossible Burger on the grill for me!

Good evening, Gaylord. I hope the NFL draft met your expectations.
  Sun. 4/30/17 8:47pm listener paul:

it's unseasonably cool here in
south Arkansas, but I'm on my porch anyway, and with Gaylord's show I'm having something pretty close to a perfect moment.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: This has been a weekend where I haven't had a moment to myself, so I don't even know how the Giants drafted!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@listener paul: How lovely! Thanks for sharing that with me!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 8:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thot that Searches might be the Iveys
...Half a Century ago, Hendrix was on tour w/ The Walkers, Cat Stevens & Englebert Humperdink...helluva show!
  Sun. 4/30/17 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hearing the original Frankie valli version of this is always interesting. So different from the more familiar Walker brothers version...
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:07pm gal_x:

Thank you, @david from ks. It is a portrait of the actress Anna May Wong. :)
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: Frankie's original has a similar arrangement but is surprisingly tamer. The added Johnny Franz bombast of the Walkers' version brings it to life.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:07pm Carmichael:

I heard an interview with Bob Gaudio a few years ago, and they played the Valli version. As a Walker fan, I was pleasantly surprised.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: Someone needs to interview the genius arranger Charles Calello. That someone may have to be me.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Nice Arrangement & Recording on the Frankie. Great singer. But Walkers sound like they mean the melodrama.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The amazing Broadcast - like United States of America meet Syd's Floyd.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:14pm Carmichael:

@Gaylord: Please! It also goes to show what a great song it is, no matter who sings it.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: I agree with that equation.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: True! It really is majestic! I hope to hear it live someday performed with full Wall of Sound production and by a sympathetic singer.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:17pm Old Dave:

@ gal- Wong was rejected for Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth?" What the hell?
Buck's farm is near where we live in Pennsylvania. Lots of paradox to this day.
I love her writing anyway.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:18pm Kate:

Hey Gaylord! So great to see you at the Record Fair!! Was that Broadcast and the Focus Group you just played as in Trish Keenan Broadcast? Loving the show so much!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:19pm gal_x:

@Old Dave — White washing and racism is not new. :(
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:19pm gal_x:

@Old Dave : Interestesting tidbit about Pearl S Buck!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Old Dave: Casting Anna May Wong to play against Paul Muni would have been considered "miscegenation" (which is effed up from about 17 angles).
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Kate: Likewise in seeing you! Thanks so much for listening and saying hello! And yes, that is the same Broadcast (Trish Keenan, R.I.P.).
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:23pm Old Dave:

Agreed, Gaylord. A Chinese man could never play Charlie Chan back in the day, or the world would end!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@Old Dave: And heaven forfend we have a Chinese-American actress playing the love interest of a European-American actor — even if he's playing a Chinese character! So guess who had to go...
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Frankly, they're still casting white people to play others.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:30pm Marc Francis:

What a beautiful song.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc Francis: Oh, yes!
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This Dion is '65?? When the bYRds had barely happened...
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: If Columbia hadn't gotten cold feet on releasing Dion's new direction, he would have gotten credit for being a folk-rock pioneer as well as its greatest practitioner. My god, that song I just played!!!
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

As a huge (unironic) fan of Al Jardine, I'm so happy you're playing this
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: Alan Jardine is deserving of your love. Such a versatile and unheralded vocalist!
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah- when I met him last year, I told him how much I loved his voice and he seemed really surprised and happy that someone had approached him to tell him that.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:38pm Old Dave:

The Pearl Buck Foundation is a thing, actual and factual. I interviewed their director a few decades ago on behalf of the US Peace Corps. At the time their mission was cleaning up the problem of unwanted an left behind kids of US service men in SE Asia.
Their work is never done...
Sorry, I know politics forbidden now on FMU! I will stop now.
This is a very healing show, Gaylord.
Many thanks.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Was it Al who brought 'Sloop John B' to them? The Folk fan in the Boys? No surprise they can all sing - but still!...
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn B: Al's singing on that one song on the Beach Boys' most recent album ("From There to Back Again") was the LP's runaway highlight.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Yep, Al was the group's folkie.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gaylord: true, I love that song!
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Love terry callier...this whole set has been great :D

@grace gold way: Sure thing!
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:56pm Mr C:

Goodnight Gaylord, where ever you are..
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:56pm Carmichael:

Wow, I didn't know Bobby Womack recorded this. Incredible ...
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 9:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Will: Glad I could play it!

@Mr C: I'm so in the present!

@Carmichael: Womack is a great songwriter and interpreter.
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:58pm Kate:

Wow this *is* amazing
  Sun. 4/30/17 9:58pm Old Dave:

Very nice show. Thanks.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 10:01pm melinda:

I missed the Al Jardine, I'll have to go back to the archive later. Had no idea about his folky leanings.
Avatar Sun. 4/30/17 10:01pm geezerette:

Thanks Gaylord! All our plants are flowering they dig your show too,
  Sun. 4/30/17 10:07pm grace gold way:
