Rod Stewart is underappreciated.

I love everything up into the mid 70s
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:05pm Jeff Ash:

Yes, I need to explore more of it.

oh, arrived right on time for Cal Tjader - the 45 with the break! (this whole LP is great.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:11pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, indeed, those Skye albums are harder to find but uniformly excellent
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:12pm geezerette:

Cool,mellow Cal.
Hello Larry and all.

Hoping Sammy Davis Jr. swings by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:15pm Funky16Corners:

Good evening C!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:15pm Funky16Corners:

I don't have any Sammy on deck but I can pull some out next week
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:16pm geezerette:

! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:16pm JtotheK:

this Peddlers is new to me - fantastic! and apparently issued on 45 as well, with "Comin' Home Baby" as the flip - gonna have to look for that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:17pm Funky16Corners:

I LOVE the Peddlers!
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 10:17pm hyde:

@JtotheK yeah, that Peddlers was great
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:18pm geezerette:

Nice sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:18pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Melinda! Welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:19pm JtotheK:

re: sammy davis jr -- having never found the Ray Charles 45 'Mess Around', the Sammy Davis Jr cover (decca?) works in a pinch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:20pm Funky16Corners:

I'm still trying to pt my hands on his vocal version of the Hawaii 5-0 theme, 'You Can Count On Me'

Hi everyone :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Jenny!

i should go to bed, but i love this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

It is a good one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:36pm Parq:

Always did love this sentimental Beachmen song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

Which one? Their Hearts... or God Only Knows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 10:37pm melinda:

God Only Knows is such a great song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:38pm Funky16Corners:

Yes. At times I'd say profoundly good
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 10:43pm hyde:

ok now i REALLY need to go to bed. thanks for the tunes. night, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks for listening!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:45pm Doug Schulkind:

F16C! Sounding great up here in Maine, though your overall mix does seem quite low. Can you pump of the volume?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

Just boosted it a bit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

Though this is a long, quiet track, let's see how it goes
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 10:57pm Doug Schulkind:

I have everything boosted to the max on my machine, and it's pretty quiet. Absolutely audible and diggable, but could be louder.
  Wed. 8/2/17 10:57pm cupcakejenny:

Oh, it's the story of tiny funky16corners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 10:59pm Funky16Corners:

Doug, how about now?
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 11:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Better now, but could be louder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

Hmmmmm...let me see what I can do.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 11:04pm geezerette:

Perfect song to drift to dream land on.
Thanks Larry!
Good night to all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:04pm Funky16Corners:

Night Geezerette!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 11:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Levels are good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:10pm Parq:

F16C @ 10:37 -- I was referring to Their Hearts, but if there's anyone who doesn't love God Only, please keep that person the hell away from me.

That was a terrific set. Just great. Michael Shelley, who seems to be the ranking Beachmen fan at FMU, as well as Dave the Spazz, who originated the expression "Beachmen", should really, really hear that set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

I'm glad you like it. I get a little deeper into the Beachmen every day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:14pm JtotheK:

reminds me, i still have to watch John Cusack (and Paul Dano) as Beach Boy in "Love & Mercy" ... did recently watch a doc about Pet Sounds which was good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:15pm Funky16Corners:

I haven't seen it either and I want to. I liked the Pet Sounds doc
  Wed. 8/2/17 11:19pm melinda:

I liked Love
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:20pm Funky16Corners:

I hear lots of good things about it
  Wed. 8/2/17 11:21pm melinda:

And Mercy. My old app cuts off text after ampersands, dammit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

Believe it or not, this is the same guy that did the Taxi theme
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:26pm northguineahills:

and he also did an album w/ Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma ("Explosions")
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:27pm northguineahills:

Turning in, thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks for listening! Have a good night!
  Wed. 8/2/17 11:28pm melinda:

I can hear the Taxi theme similarity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

That electric piano comes through
  Wed. 8/2/17 11:29pm melinda:

I especially liked the recording studio scenes in L and M. Nice depiction of process.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

I'll be watching for that. I was thinking this week about guys that either worked with, or followed in the footsteps of Phil Spector and the Wall of Sound and of all of them, Brian really took the ideas and built something new with them
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:52pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the show - thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/2/17 11:52pm Funky16Corners:
