Mornin' fun people!

Ah, Argent. What a nice mellow start to the morning. Reminds me that The Zombies are winding up their Odessey and Oracle tour in NYC next month.
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:07am GListener MW:

Love this Moulding track! off “The Big Express”, I believe?
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:15am 1whoknewcthulhu:

It's been a real delight hearing the Mary Hopkin cuts these past few weeks.
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:17am Kerouac movie:

I loved that Jack Torpey song. It’s always a testament to a good WFMU DJ when a song doesn’t come up on Spotify or the web.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 2/10/18 9:23am melinda:

I liked the Jack Torpey too. I didn't know the term 'library music' before WFMU.

@queems hope you slept in this morn

Love it when Herman's Hermits got gritty!
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:53am Doc Rock:

Good Morning All. Jeff - R U Out There?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 9:53am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

What's better than "My Reservation's Been Confirmed"? Answer: Nothing. Also the flip of the Hermits version of "Dandy".
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:57am Jeff:

I’m here, Doc!
Laying in bed listening with Chuchu sleeping on my legs.
Hey, did Charlie Calello do the arrangements on Emmie? Even if he didn’t, Charlie’s one of the very important figures in the music (and very under appreciated by the general public).
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 9:58am Peteski:

that's torturous with headphones
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:59am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Still remember Phil Ochs in the gold lame Elvis get-up on the Greatest Hits cover. An underappreciated album whose title misled a lot of listeners.
  Sat. 2/10/18 9:59am Mandy:

.......I have several questions
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:05am Doc Rock:

Agreed on CC.

had "50 Phil Ochs fans cant be wrong" on the back
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:10am Jeff:

Julie Tippetts = Julie Driscoll + acid
(Just kidding. I dig Julie in all her incarnations + Keith + Brian - not talking about Richards + Jones)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 2/10/18 10:12am Balls_Benedict:

If my source was right, Bob Wills was the first act to have drums on stage of the Grand Ol Opry
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:13am 1whoknewcthulhu:

It wouldn't be Bob Willis without a falsetto "Ah-hah," now would it?

Interesting interpretation
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:18am Jeff:

Good vibes!

Oh, Joni. What an album.

Hejira, a great album.

Hello DJ Bob Brainen. Thanks for mentioning the guitarist on Black Crow. Wikipedia indicated it was Joni herself....didn't think so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 2/10/18 10:43am melinda:

I really like the Spirit. Last week's too.
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:50am Tommy Martin:

re: Mary Hopkin; gorgeous choice Bob! Check out her album 'Earth song Ocean song' produced by Tony Visconti. Backed by Ralph McTell,Danny Thompson,and David Cousins. Stellar. Opens with ,International, by Gallagher and Lyle,also done by them on the first McGuiness Flint album.
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:50am Michael from the Left Coast:

Man--without looking at the title, there are elements of this that sound so much like Laura Nyro's I Never Meant to Hurt You
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:56am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Jelly Roll Morton followed by Erik Satie. If this doesn't sum up the eclecticism of Bob's playlist, then I don't know what does.

Thanks for keeping me company on the highway, Bob.
  Sat. 2/10/18 10:59am Michael from the Left Coast:

So it was I Never Meant to Hurt You--the playlist was running behind!
