Al Hirt's version of Java is a bit of childhood soundtrack.

I'm playing air piano to beat the band

Whirlaway was among the first tunes F16C ever hepped me to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:07pm Funky16Corners:

Really?!

Is this show an all love song fest dedicated to your wife? Boy she must be really lucky. You’re a real catch!
  Wed. 2/14/18 10:15pm cupcakejenny:

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:16pm Funky16Corners:

Of course it is, as are all of my shows!
Avatar Wed. 2/14/18 10:17pm Jeff Ash:

OK, maybe it was Dan at Home of the Groove. It all kinda runs together after all these years. A happy problem to have!

Can't have too many great New Orleans records running around in your head!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

I don't think I ever posted Whirlaway as a standalone track, only in mixes
Avatar Wed. 2/14/18 10:20pm still b/p:

Someone seemed to take a shine to the Stones cover of Fortune Teller, because I heard it on a Boston FM station a number of times in a certain period in the 70s...more than I'd expect -- an unusual choice for the exposure.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:21pm Funky16Corners:

I remember the Katrina benefit concert at MSG, when Jimmy Buffett shocked the hell out of me by playing Fortune Teller
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:34pm northguineahills:

Forgot to say holas, Larry. Got back earlier from dropping off the missus at the Orlando airport and drove back north. Will have hit the blog for the Allen Toussaint mix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

Composed by Allen Toussaint!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

Hey NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:35pm northguineahills:

My favorite Whipped Cream mashup/remix was Evolutionary Control Committee's "Whipped Cream/By The Time I Get To Arizona".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

I'll have to look for that!
Avatar Wed. 2/14/18 10:37pm still b/p:

Just saw a note about Toussaint writing Fortune Teller as "Naomi Neville." I'd forgotten about the pseudonym business.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

A large portion of the records in tonight's show were written under that very psuedonym
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Listen for Toussaint with the whooo whooooos in this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

I misspoke, the Stokes track was reused for the flipside of I Feel Good, The Word Game
Avatar    Wed. 2/14/18 11:00pm Doug Schulkind:

The Whooo Whooooos is a great band name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:01pm Funky16Corners:

Indeed it is!

Anybody still out there? Have I been left to my own devices??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks NGH! Nite!
Avatar Wed. 2/14/18 11:48pm still b/p:

Listening, browsing, should be reading. Keep waking up pre-dawn and CAN'T get back to sleep. Slip some subliminal long-sleep spell on the turntable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/14/18 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

I have some long form radio plays on my iPod that seem to knock me out in less than five minutes.
Avatar Wed. 2/14/18 11:58pm still b/p:

All so good tonight. Thanks.
