Avatar 9:07pm TonyR:

To test my spouse's hearing aids and bluetooth, I streamed a Ronnie song. Unkind things were said. I held my tongue and wished him well figuring it all out by himself.

You can't trust Bingo with anything, as everybody knows . . .

Look what they did to Dave's superhero underwear.

That Ronnettes song already gave me the wim-wams!

Dave's bringing the knowledge. I knew his return would be worth the wait.

You mean the Whim-Whams??

What is it about Thursday nights? What happens?
Avatar 9:31pm TonyR:

Dixie Cips' original band name is vaguely suggestive. And I think I heard the actual word "sex" in an early version of "Iko Iko" played on Crayons tonight.
Avatar 9:34pm TonyR:

Hey now. Hey now!
Avatar 9:35pm TonyR:

The best answer.

Charlie Parker and King Uszniewicz...wish I was at THAT show!
Avatar 9:47pm Mister Dobalina:

Feel like you've been Spazz'd yet?
Avatar 9:47pm TonyR:

I care. My old 45 had a fire-motif on the left side with a black background (name escapes me). Sounds like what Dave is talking about. (Never listened to the other side.)
Avatar 9:48pm TonyR:

Ember!! FOUND IT!

Can no longer hear this without seeing DeNiro in the nursing home in The Irishman.

Some coffee gelato should spazz you right up.

Nope, just checked ... vanilla peanut butter swirl was all that was left. Beggars can't be choosy.
Avatar 10:00pm TonyR:

No, Mr. D. Just walk away. If you're going to coma out, it should be WORTH it.

Howdy Rex & Kitschy. Wil! How’s the CEO?

Ralph is bitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Stevel:

Ralph is terrifying in his certainty.
Avatar 10:14pm TonyR:

Not exactly "Be My Baby".

Are you gonna play the Byrds ode to Ralph?

Hello Dave Miss

"F*ck you, ceiling!!"

That’s a hard ‘no’ then.

Always thought that Love Child line was "Started my life..."
Avatar 10:19pm TonyR:

Also spent too much time wondering how somebody could "throw up" a dress.

@TonyR: Oh. You're probabaly right.

Is Glenn Miller the guy who went on to run a major record company and "enjoys" a reputation as an SOB?

(NM. I think "Mitch Miller" is who I am summoning.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm medson:

Killing it here tonight Dave.
Avatar 10:31pm TonyR:

I didn't even know he was sick. (Srsly, SO MANY people!! Thanks, Dave.) Okay. Nobody else dies! Pinky swear?
  10:32pm Mimi:

I worked with R Dean Taylor briefly in 2007 while working at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame - we inducted Love Child. He was a reserved, kind man, but I remember was low key annoyed that we inducted that song rather than his solo stuff. I had no idea he passed, heard about it 20 minutes ago listening to your show, thanks for the great tribute.
Avatar 10:32pm TonyR:

What's wrong with watching the labels going around???
Avatar 10:34pm Mister Dobalina:

Definitely a nite of heavy hitter jams !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

I haven't routinely listened to WFAN in a while, but Dragnet Theme is what's played in the background during traffic updates or some other type of update, right?

Loving these selections tonight too.

That's What It's All About
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Stevel:

For cripes' sake, I'm singing along with Ray!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm PigeonsAndRust:

I feel like this is Advanced Hokey Pokey
Avatar 10:37pm Mister Dobalina:

Now we're talkin'...
  10:39pm BH:

I believe that was the 12 inch version of the Hokey Pokey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Jim the Poet:

What if the hokey pokey is WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
Avatar 10:39pm TonyR:

Cobras 4-ever.
Avatar 10:41pm Mister Dobalina:

Once again, all the Detroit Cobras stuff I've heard on FMU, I've liked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm medson:

Love her voice. The Cobras are unfortunately on my list of bands I never went to see live. Shame on me.
Avatar 10:42pm TonyR:

Cobras definitely schooled me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm JOE FROM DC:

LOVED the Detroit Cobras! Everything they released is perfect!
Avatar 10:42pm Mister Dobalina:

Speaking of hot dogs, Boar's Head makes a natural casing dog which when paired potato roll & your favorite fine red wine, is the bee's knees good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Jim the Poet:

I want her to watch me eat a bunch of hot dogs
Avatar 10:43pm TonyR:

Saw them once. Middle act, 30 minutes sandwiched between inferiors. And the crowd was a mess.

Mister Dobalina: Stop your gourmet chatter, I'm starving now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm JOE FROM DC:

Alley Oop is the perfect mix of stupid and clever! Turn it up to 11!
Avatar 10:54pm Mister Dobalina:

@Stevel...say no more, done & done. But one last question, have you ever had a craving for a nice, grilled sardine?
Avatar 10:57pm Mister Dobalina:

Gotta cheese it, Da Vi D, needless to say, you're a diamond in the rough..excellent show as always. 'til next week.

Avatar 11:11pm TonyR:

Is the turntable alright? Sounds like the 2nd Ronnettes song in a row in wide stereo, but missing a channel.
  11:14pm rhett:

one of the most important musicians of the 20th century USA brought to life by Dave the Spazz. Thank you. Neither of you will ever be forgotten.

Was at that 2010 stomp 'n conference..sure wish they would release more of the oral histories..so many great talks..great to hear on radio..
  11:21pm Vertual:

I don't know if there is a god. But tonight's show is, for me, a religious experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Stevel:

WFMU is doing Ronnie Spector right. I'm learning a ton and really appreciating her connections to so many musicians. Bravo!
Avatar 11:31pm TonyR:

Xmas album was remastered an released in hi-res (24-bit). Lot of Spector product could use a sonic spruce-up. This sounds great.
Avatar 11:32pm Motobro:

Dave great job honoring a treasure.
And it sounds great as the first tunes in the garage up in VT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Paulo AD:

Good morning all :) Hope everyone is well and safe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Dominick:

Heard the "hits' when they came out, but in '68 the college radio station where I was librarian bought a score of Philles singles. I just kept blasting them over and over in the McIntosh/Bozak system in the library. My synapses were permanently fused. This last week has been a deep dive into every emotion. NO one hits home more than Ronnie.
Avatar 11:40pm TonyR:

Cher's got chops. Even if Phil didn't think so.
Avatar 11:42pm TonyR:

But Cher is more likely to my ear to be a fake Crystal than a fake Ronette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm McGroovey:

I forgot to turn on my radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm dave wuz here:

the pure joy in brian's voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm medson:

These songs are giving me WCBS flashbacks. Getting driven to school in our Mercury Montego with the loud muffler
  11:46pm Sylvia's Mother:

Brian: “First time I heard ‘Be My Baby,’ I was driving and had to pull over. It blew my mind! I want to do something good as that. It’s like Einstein’s theory of relativity. Eventually, I got to work with Hal Blaine. He was supposed to play the snare on the second beat as well as the fourth. But he dropped a stick. He left the mistake in and it became ‘bum-ba-bum-BOOM!’”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Paulo AD:

I always find this song hilarious
  11:48pm Vertual:

My memory may be a little fuzzy but I think the first time i heard Be My Baby was in the womb, born October 63 . Thanks Mom.
Avatar 11:48pm TonyR:

After watching "Get Back", I realized George wrote a song about sending Mal Evans out to fetch Indian food.
  11:52pm rhett:

thank you Dave. I can't express how much I love this.

Mr. Dobs! A glass of your finest hot dog wine for Spazz!
