Hey Mike, loving the selections. I'm guessing a few of these may even have been snatched up on the recent trip to Liverpool-land.

hey there Mr. O Sound!

Pretty good stuff today Mike
Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Great to hear you on the FM airwaves today Mike.

Just saw a short doc about The LiverBirds - all girl Beatles contemporary - one member said John Lennon said they would fail and "girls don't play guitars.."??? StarClub Records..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm
Mike Sin:

Hey Matt Calrke, phat in licoln, sam the ram, love2laf, Handy, medson, paul webster, steveo pgalub, rx scabin, LesleyK, watchpocket -- Thanks so much for listening and commenting!

Yes, I saw some Liverbirds clips (I think by hearing about them on M. Shelley's list below the playlists), another little-known R&R story. Lennon could be a dick at times; I've heard other stories about him being rude to other musicians (there's a story about the Turtles too). OTOH, Peter Noone said he was usually easy to talk to & once complimented him on his record being a hit. He seemed to have mellowed in his later years, making his early demise that much more tragic.

Good morning Mike S.and OS listeners. Greetings from SF. Great set, Mike! Especially love Byrds version of great

Ray Davies said Lennon tried to intimidate him - no doubt cause Ray's talent threatened him. Still in street behavior mode.

Blues Project sounding very Byrds-like in Fly Away. RIP Dany Kalb
Avatar 12:29pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Skawt !

Love Ray Davies, & that makes sense....I can see Lennon being intimidated by his talent (I put RD up there w/L&M, Dylan & a few others). I think Davies had said some disparaging things about the Fabs too, so maybe that was after the Lennon encounter. I guess JL was just a jealous guy....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm

has anyone seen Scott Walker and Brian Ferry in he same room? (maybe I'm overreacting)
Avatar 12:33pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Andy Partridge makes the case of Davies over L&M if haven't seen this VillageGreen doc :
...yerknow - as they say, comparison in the enemy of joy. No one wants a world without either Beatles or Kinks of course.

Thot this was Dusty.

Never knew there was another good way to do this classic. It makes you appreciate the genius of the writer

Hello fellow sinners

And it makes me appreciate WFMU for the discovery!

never thought anyone would have heard of it :D

@andy which is why i donโ€™t listen to commercial music radio with itโ€™s SSDD
  Swag For Life Member 12:40pm
San Pedro Girl:

@DG Agree! RD among the great songwriters ;a brilliant, witty social satirist extraordinaire--and despite that remains, in my opinion, underrated compared with Dylan, L&M, J&R.

Always thought the Blues Project was SF..just read NYC???? Blues Magoos also NY, The BX !!!!!

Avatar 12:44pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Beatles ha an edge with Arrangement & Recording - & Singing & style &tc. But that's exactly it : Ray Davies is not too much like Dylan, L&M, Townshend - but - is in that room.

There was an NPR interview with Phil Manzanera of Roxy and ???? and he mentioned he played secretly (studio/tracks) with other groups to avoid tensions with all the big heads/egos involved..
