Sat. 2/24/18 9:02am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Good morning, Bob and all. What a beautiful near-spring day in the NY Metro area.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:02am duke:

♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:02am annie:
good morning bob!!
Sat. 2/24/18 9:03am DebfromBefore:
Happy BobSatuurday. I'm ready to get out of my mind.
Sat. 2/24/18 9:03am 1whoknewcthulhu:
And, THEY'RE OFF! Great start with a deep cut from the Stones.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:03am Linda Lee:
*my* rolling stones honey! their best era! in my opinion!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:04am Uncle Michael:
How odd. I listened to Between the Buttons a couple of days ago, for the first time in decades.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:05am Linda Lee:
@Uncle Michael ~ happens a lot here, i find.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:06am annie:
best version ever
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:06am duke:
Aaah man, Richie Havens what a great voice
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:07am Uncle Michael:
Very true, Linda.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:08am Linda Lee:
this song is *rumored* to be inspired by Allen Ginsberg ~ not sure i buy it.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:09am Linda Lee:
people can be silly.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:10am Linda Lee:
just the right time for Satie. thanks Bob!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:12am melinda:
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:13am Linda Lee:
hi melinda! :-D
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:13am WilliamfromDumont:
Morning Bob and everyone.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:16am melinda:
I've heard that Just Like a Woman was inspired by Edie Sedgwick.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:18am Linda Lee:
that makes a little more sense.
Sat. 2/24/18 9:22am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Gritty Herman's Hermits--sounding like they listened to every Everly Brothers record to get harmonies right.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:23am WilliamfromDumont:
Sounds like the Stones backing Herman.
Sat. 2/24/18 9:25am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Sat. 2/24/18 9:26am Grapeshot:
It’s a Beautiful Day today!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:29am Linda Lee:
is that Spirit really 61?
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:40am Dano59:
Maybe Todd Haynes came across that Ginsburg story. I always thought (well, since about '03) it was about Edie Sedgwick
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:42am Linda Lee:
rumor possibly a jab at Allen. again, people can be silly.
Sat. 2/24/18 9:44am GListener MW:
so loving these TC&I tracks you’ve played, Bob — I have to remember to order the EP this weekend
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:44am WilliamfromDumont:
Bob, Between the Buttons was, I believe, recorded entirely in the UK. They hadn't recorded in England since the first LP.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am Linda Lee:
image of very British Stones experiencing very sunny, new world 60s Hollywood for recording. irresistible.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am melinda:
Most likely a jab at Allen.
Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am Peanut Gallery:
Exactly right GListener MW. Thx for what you do, Bob.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:46am Linda Lee:
.. being Allen he didn't deny it, far as i know :-)
Sat. 2/24/18 9:48am GListener MW:
great segue into this should’ve-been-a-single XTC track!! Off “Mumler”, is it?
Sat. 2/24/18 9:49am GListener MW:
Mummer, rather.... damned autocorrect!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:49am Linda Lee:
one nice thing about aging: your solid ego lets you appreciate music you discounted as a youngster. :-)
Sat. 2/24/18 9:51am SmokinJ:
Mornin' bb & friends! Nice set!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:53am Aaron Working In Newark:
Sat. 2/24/18 9:55am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Never get tired of hearing this Rascal track!
Sat. 2/24/18 9:55am Grapeshot:
Just got the mono cds A sides and b sides
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:56am Linda Lee:
What a pretty, pretty record. Rascals!
Sat. 2/24/18 9:57am Grapeshot:
Check out Kronos Quartet:Folk Songs
Sat. 2/24/18 9:57am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Mindful that all but 2 cuts in the first hour of programming this morning are from the Brainen Archive.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:58am Dano59:
I agree with Linda Lee - I have no compunction at this point about loving the Bee Gees and even, sometimes, Bread.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:59am Dano59:
It sure beats arguing with other fans about what is and isn't "rock'n'roll"
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 9:59am Davee:
Great show this morning!!!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:00am Roberto:
Per Dano59's point, I listened to Dismal Day by Bread twice in a row yesterday.
Sat. 2/24/18 10:01am Grapeshot:
Any Sandy Bull in the future?
Sat. 2/24/18 10:02am Doc Rock:

Sat. 2/24/18 10:04am Eliyah:
Hey guyz, I want to make a pledge in the marathon but im from europe. If i choose to play with my credit card will the money be drawn in dollars or i will have a problem cause i think the money i got in my credit is in euro currency. Can someone help me maybe??
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:05am Linda Lee:

You don't listen to my show Bob? I'm crushed.
Sat. 2/24/18 10:08am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am Eliyah:

♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am annie:
firstname.lastname@example.org he's the guy who can help you Eliyah
Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am GListener MW:
Agreed Bob, I love XTC’s “Ladybird” — the piano has a great cadence to it, and the song doesn’t really sound like much else they’d ever done or would do later
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am Linda Lee:
hope they can help out. thanks in advance for donating!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:10am annie:

The AAC stream sounds really good.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:41am WilliamfromDumont:
Love the first Mott album!
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:46am duke:
Reuben and The Jets wish they were Nolan Strong and the Diablos
Sat. 2/24/18 10:48am paul:
from the Specialty Box?
Sat. 2/24/18 10:48am SmokinJ:
@ Third World Man: I agree. I'm hoping the station can eventually provide an uncompressed stream. The AAC stream is a step up though.. 8-)
Sat. 2/24/18 10:50am paul:
Guess not: Annie Is Back (45 Mono Master-Take 7) is in the box set.
♥ Sat. 2/24/18 10:55am stalvey:
