Good morning, Bob and all. Looking forward to some music sunshine to brighten up this dreary Saturday in the NYC metro area. Procol Harum is a good start.

Mornin' Mr. B and all. I think the only Harum Trower isn't on is A Whiter Shade of Pale. I may be wrong about that though.

Sat. 5/6/17 9:33am DebfromCali:
Hey Bob and FOB! Love Procol Harum. Thanks for the great Saturday show.
Sat. 5/6/17 9:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
The 'Love Is the Song We Sing' box (more like a beautiful high school yearbook design...) actually makes the comparison & contrast between the big in-town SF Psych acts & the neighboring Bay Area town Garage (ProtoPunk) acts - concluding it really is a legless distinction...
Sat. 5/6/17 9:53am RHenderson:
Always wanted to like Let's Active more than I ultimately did. Might have been the too bright reverb coating everything, or perhaps I reacted against Mitch's vocals and/or lyrics, never certain. Very glad to see Mitch in the Big Star doc, though.
Sat. 5/6/17 10:00am brycepunk1:
That sounded so much like Techno-Animal in the intro...
Sat. 5/6/17 10:06am blob:
Sound Exchange, Rt 23! It's still there
Sat. 5/6/17 10:11am tlw:
Let's Active was one of my favorite, under-rated bands in the 80's that I would play when I was a college dj.
Sat. 5/6/17 10:18am Nanker de Tucson:
Distinctive Greg Lake tune !

You're brightening a cloud morning in Maryland. Bob. Thanks for the "Ballad of the Sad Young Men." Rickie Lee Jones (on Pop Pop) turned me on to that one.
🎃 Sat. 5/6/17 10:55am JohnEBGood:
