G'day Brian & Currents Crew!
Avatar 🗒 3:05am Don in Tampere:

Good morning from Finland! There should certainly be plenty of topics today.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:08am Paulo AD:

Brian, my man, how have you been
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09am Brian D:

Hello all. Missed you last week, @Paulo.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:10am Paulo AD:

Missed you too dude. I was a bit of a mess last Sunday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11am Brian D:

So was I. As evidenced by the radio show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13am Brian D:

Hope you're feeling better this week.

I played jail guitar doors to death when I was a kid
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:46am Paulo AD:

I like this Brian, just reading about the band.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:49am Brian in UK:

Hello Brian & listeners. Beautiful sunrise here.

What power the president?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Brian D:

Always worry about playing the Dream Syndicate too much, Paulo -- but they were/are great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50am Brian D:

Greetings @Brian. The courts hold the real power in the US, I'm afraid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am JohnEBGood:

Hi Brian, Love Dead Flowers. My friend Ronald taught me the tune when I picked up a guitar. Ronald sang and played with soul and personality. He served us in Vietnam. I was blessed to be his friend. Love you Ronald : )
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:54am Paulo AD:

RIP Ronald
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:55am Paulo AD:

Brian, I'll be having a deep dive later. Look forward to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am Brian D:

Condolences @John. And RIP Ronald.

Do Bandcamp still do that last Friday of the month thing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am Brian D:

First Friday, but yes.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:08am Brian in UK:

Oh yes, Mick Rock did this album cover?
  4:10am morphe':

So amazing, I was thinking of this song the other day remembering the melody but could remember any lyric. Was thinking it was Bowie, but then thinking just sounded like Bowie and I literally just tuned in ..Serendipity.. Thanks BD !!!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:11am Paulo AD:

Man, what a tune. I love Bowie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am Brian D:

Mick helped Bowie with the Ziggy persona, but he didn't do the cover for that record. He did do Aladdin Sane, however.
Avatar 4:16am DktrFaustus:

I was just listening to Aladdin Sane. Phenomenal album!
Avatar 4:18am DktrFaustus:

I think Mick Rock shot the cover of Bowie's eponymous 1969 album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am Brian D:

Thanks Dktr. He also did Pin Ups. Gotta do my research before I speak.
Avatar 4:21am DktrFaustus:

Cheers! Loving the music.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:22am Brian in UK:

Brian D this is freeform & why we love this station.
  4:23am miles:

the only thing I've learned from a quick Google is that Rock shot 2 pix featured on the back of Bowie's Pin Ups LP
  4:23am miles:

did NOT do the front cover of Pin Ups
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Brian D:

Then Wikipedia has it wrong, @miles.
Avatar 4:27am DktrFaustus:

His obit in The Guardian says he did the cover for Pinups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am Brian D:

Here is a complete-ish list: ononeonlinesblog.wordpress.com...
  4:28am miles:

"The cover photo for Pin Ups reflected the theme of swinging London by featuring 1960s supermodel Twiggy, who had previously been name-checked on Aladdin Sane's "Drive-In Saturday" as "Twig the Wonder Kid". The photo was taken midway through the sessions at a Paris studio by her then-manager and partner Justin de Villeneuve"

What a list! Especially Barrett.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Brian D:

Here's another: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am Brian D:

Correct @Miles. He did the BACK cover of Pin Ups.
  4:33am ?:

Pin Ups gets better and better as the years go by in my humble opinion
