Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Jeff, you didn't imagine I'd skip Bob's Kansas reference, did you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:02am Parq:

Here for the last reel - which, I fear, will be the norm while UM is in this slot. So glad to tune in for Dylan's "Meet Me". "Blood" is one of those albums where, every time I listen to it, I think, "How did they ever succeed in making an album so fucking good?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:03am Parq:

Dean, the Rascals did a Broadway stand? How in the world did I miss that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:03am Jeff Golick:

Well, @parq, he made it a few times, so...
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:04am Doug Schulkind:

Not sure I'm getting the concept of this one.

All these people keep waking up to bad personal relationships.

See me after class, Doug.

Parq! The Dougfather!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:08am Uncle Michael:

Am I still streaming?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:08am Uncle Michael:

False alarm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:08am Little Danny:

Yep, no probs at this end

My class today is Direct Practice with the Elderly. In other word, self care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:10am Parq:

@Doug: Good. Coz my back is bothering me and I get a shooting pain whenever I do this. < raises left arm >
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:10am Little Danny:

There are no metal songs with "morning" in the title.
  Fri. 9/1/17 11:10am Dan:

The Gaylads. You certainly can't have a band name like that today.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:11am Wilson K:

Blood is so good. 90% of the album is in open tuning.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:12am still b/p:

I don't expect it's on the list, but if it were, it's notable and gratifying that in Hinky Dinky world we could hear the Al Martino OR the Elvis OR the Glen Campbell version of Mary in the Morning..
  Fri. 9/1/17 11:16am Dan:

Gaylads, Mud and now Featherbed. Where do these people come from?
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:17am Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
Don't do that. (I'm already a pro.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:17am Uncle Michael:

This singer came from the Continental Baths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:18am Jeff Golick:

Thought I recognized that croon.

Mighty stuff. Greetings all!

My French teacher in high school was a huge Barry Manilow fan.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:19am still b/p:

Direct Band Practice with the Elderly. Excellent.

It was so thoughtful of Barry not to "disappoint" his fans with personal revelation through the decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:19am Uncle Michael:

Ray!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:20am listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Doug. I drank your coffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:26am Webhamster Henry:

ha! I was wondering if this Morning would show up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:27am northguineahills:

I might be slow in the AM, but I detect a theme here, it only took me how long????
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:27am Uncle Michael:

NGH!
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:28am burke:

That can't be Ira on lead vocals? James?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:28am listener james from westwood:

Oh hell yes, was hoping "Angel" was comin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:29am Uncle Michael:

Yes, Burke...James.

PP Arnold. An unsung talent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:29am Parq:

Doug @ 11:17. Whew! For a while there, I was afraid you weren't going to pick up your cue.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:31am Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
I had to fill out a ton of paperwork before being able to give you an answer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:31am Uncle Michael:

Damn...gonna run outta time before songs...and I have a cranky DJ following me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:33am Webhamster Henry:

Waiting for next week's Afternoon set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:33am Uncle Michael:

I'm your morning man now, Henry.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:35am Doug Schulkind:

You know what happens when listening to YOU in the morning, Uncle Michael: Mourning.

I kid!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:35am melinda:

Did someone already mention that it's Barry Gibb's birthday today?
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:36am still b/p:

Yes, but mourning becomes electra(ic).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:37am Uncle Michael:

Melinda, I'm sure Clay did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:37am Little Danny:

morning was very '70s subject matter I'm learning
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:40am Webhamster Henry:

It's always Afternoon somewhere, Uncle Michael!
Avatar    Fri. 9/1/17 11:40am 23 Wolves:

Diggin' this show Unc! Not really a morning person, but I'm makin' an exception today!
  Fri. 9/1/17 11:40am Dan:

As much as I love Sinatra, Richard Kiley's version of Oh What A Beautiful Morning is spellbinding.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:41am still b/p:

Saddle up Sinatra for the win! Gotta go, thanks for fine inaugural early action.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:44am melinda:

This a has been a great inaugural early show!
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

Hahahaha! Uncle Michael gets a taste of having to do math at the end of his show. Hahahaha! (Go as long as you like, brother.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:47am Uncle Michael:

I've gone about as far as I can go, Doug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:48am Uncle Michael:

Math? I just lean the records up against the side of the sun dial and measure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:48am doctorjazz:

Thanks, UM, great show!
  Fri. 9/1/17 11:48am Dan:

Next theme should be first songs on a group or artist's first album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:49am coelacanth∅:

UM you've got the artist and track title reversed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 11:50am Santos L. Halper:
