Heya Larry! I just greeted you heartily in the comments section of Evan's show by accident. I'm pretty cool.

Nothing better than a little JB to warm up a chilly night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 10:31pm Parq:

Never anything else like this stuff. Testify, indeed!

Hey Parq!

Late to the party, but I have arrived mid-popcorn. That, of course, is the record I found Saturday!

Hey Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 10:34pm Parq:

Cosby (in light of recent events, I should beg pardon for bringing him up, but this was a long time ago) did a spoof of JB in the 70s that featured his call-outs to his drummer.

All the music in this set excerpted from a tribute mix I did when Clyde Stubblefield passed away last year. You can dig the whole thing here: funky16corners.com...
Avatar Wed. 3/28/18 10:46pm Jeff Ash:

I remember that F16C popcorn mix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

It's still available on this page, scroll down to Radio v.14 - funky16corners.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:12pm northguineahills:

I made it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:13pm Parq:

I saw that Stubblefiled post when it ran, too. Nailed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:15pm Parq:

That last set slayed, by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:17pm Parq:

I had never heard any version of Soul Makossa other than the one that was a hit in the U.S. in the mid 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

The Bob James song with the heavy Idris Muhammad break was 'Nautilus' BTW
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:18pm Little Danny:

"El Pito" never fails to astound
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:19pm Funky16Corners:

Seriously. I'm dancing/drumming here
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:20pm northguineahills:

I'm just a drum beat south of florigia, I know the feeling.

The picture sleeve of this 45 is amazing, Joe and his band in dinner jackets, with ascots, all holding long cigarette holders

With that p/s, highly possible!

NGH, your multi track mind thinking in five languages at once.

Ha. This Mongo Santamaria cover of Lady Marmalade was the first song on my iPod when I worked out yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

Kismet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

With this I think I've played all the versions of the song I own, except for Labelle
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:35pm doctorjazz:

Late arrival, sounding good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:36pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:36pm Parq:

Mongo covered that? Way cool.
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:37pm still b/p:

Didn’t realize before that you can get your cha cha on and your ya yas out both t’ once with the Marmalade music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

Mongo covered a lot of cool stuff. His 1960s Columbia albums are cheap, plentiful and full of good music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

Hey SBP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:37pm Parq:

This was what first brought Mongo to my attention. Needless to say, it caught this 15 year old boy's eye.

Oh yeah!
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:44pm still b/p:

How’s evbody doon? Tunes too good to silence.
Smarty phone technology — recently adopted — has tossed me back five decades in a fashion, with listening abed reminding me of transistor radio sessions in the blankets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

That's cool, too. Sneak that phone under the covers and listen in the dark!
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:45pm Dean:

Sure, but being reminded of transistor radio isn't even close to listening to transistor radio.
Avatar    Wed. 3/28/18 11:46pm geezerette:

Larry, this show! Super audio sunshine every time!

Howdy, Parq!, Still B/P!, Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Fidelity's better, but we all get to use our imagination. My memories of listening to the radio well into the night as a kid are strong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Geezerette!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

And hey Dean!
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:47pm Dean:

Likewise. As a kid, as a young adult, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

I even used to listen to TV! I could pick up the audio from the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia way down at the bottom of the FM dial. I used to listen to the late show.
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:51pm still b/p:

Had a funny tech reminder with a hand- size radio a few months ago. Mostly dormant, but pulled it out to specifically use its TV audio bands for some forgotten reason. White noise there.... and I remembered, “Ohhhh yeah, the stations aren’t broadcasting an analog signal no’ mo’.” The feature... it is useless.
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:52pm Dean:

I can't begin to inventory the stuff I heard: amazing evangelical call-in shows, Johnny Otis, blues dudes, prog rock outta Long Beach, Rodney on the ROQ, ordinary AM hits, early "Love Line" with Poor Man, classical on KUSC...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

That was one of my favorite things as a kid. Kind of a secret way to stay up with the TV without staying up with the TV.
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:54pm rw:

Hey! Working. Listening. Digging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:56pm Funky16Corners:

hey RW!
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:56pm rw:

Dean, you mean prog rock on KNAC out of the F&M Building?

Dang. Show's over. It was a good one. Thanks Funky16Corners!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/28/18 11:57pm Funky16Corners:

Dig it in the archive tomorrow RW!
  Wed. 3/28/18 11:57pm rw:

Heard it all! Just wanting more.
