Good morning, Bob and all. Looking forward to celebrating this glorious spring morning in the northeast with you.

good morning Bob & listeners! what a lovely day!
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 9:09am tadpoles:

Oi! Only 72. I was a big fan of Spooky Tooth although I must admit I thought it was Paul Rodgers you were playing at first. Another sad tribute day. Thanks for remembering Bob.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:13am kevin sutton:

Their version of "I am the walrus" is a classic!
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:15am Manhikng:

Bob - Thanks for the Spooky Tooth. Haven't heard them for a while. Enjoying your show from the mountains in VT. Keep free form alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 9:16am Uncle Michael:

I never considered this re-imagined as a march. How...great.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:17am Cal Zone!:

A very dignified Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep to you and yours!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 9:20am Scraps (sparcS):

One of my fav Dr John tracks.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:24am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Wow--reading up on Spooky Tooth and had no idea how many other bands they seeded.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:28am soule:

great canned heat - blind owl wilson - very under appreciated harp player
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:41am phat:

REM's version of this song is one of my favorite REM recordings.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:41am 1whoknewcthulhu:

PYLON!! The Athens sound. And the 45 sounds very different from the album version.
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:43am mike east:

I picked up spooky two and the mirror at the record fair years ago on a whim. I dig both. Spooky two definitely the stronger album but I like the artwork on the mirror better
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 9:45am Linda Lee:

well, 'the man with the cigar' is my favorite record of all time at this moment. thanks Bob!
     Sat. 3/31/18 9:50am Listener Robert:

That "Rhythmical Interruption" sounded like the bed music Irwin used to play between pieces of Incorrect Music, or maybe it was Atrocious Music. I always imagined the lyrics to go with the horns saying, "There! Take that!"
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:52am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Fats kicking out the jams! Is that Hardesty on the sax?
  Sat. 3/31/18 9:55am DebfromHere:

Good Saturday to you all. Love Ida Lupino...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 9:59am duke:

"Musicians and audience alike were confused at the totally new direction the music had taken. One person was not. John Coltrane was sitting at the back of the club and the impact on him was amazing. He ran right up to the stage shouting, 'John Gilmore, John Gilmore, you motherfucker. You got it, you got the concept!'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 10:00am Santos L. Halper:

Nice to hear Gilmore in a new setting, will have to check out. Thanks Bob, great show!

Hey, it's Bob Brainen!

Good morning Bob! Good morning all! GOOD MORNING GREG! What’s/who’s the organ music playing behind you?

Hello Bob. Good cover of David Ackles 'Down River' .

my neighbor Gary Peacock is a brilliant bassist. a bit fancy, but brilliant.

There are TV shows listed on IMDB.

The hammered dulcimer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 10:13am Linda Lee:

loved this one as soon as i heard it ~ not long after it came out. had someone buy the single for me (too young for purchases). forget the A side. this was the B side.

Aaron! We're inside of 3 weeks til GBV!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 10:14am Linda Lee:

Brian Jones was just brilliant. heart & soul of this young band. sad story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 10:16am Brian in UK:

Linda, agree. Aftermath is a great album. Goin'Home notwithstanding.
Arthur Lee tried to copy it with Revelation on Da Capo.
  Sat. 3/31/18 10:16am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Stones in troubador mode. Brian Jones was brilliant.

Linda it showed how confident they were by then to include an eleven minute track amongst all the pop.
  Sat. 3/31/18 10:19am Steve:

Thanks for The Spoonful Dr. Robert!

Good week for Pretty Ballerina covers...someone played the Alice Cooper the other day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/31/18 10:55am Roberto:

I love that "mountain is moving" verse. It really encapsulates the sense of urgency of the many unrequited crushes of my youth.
