Listener comments!

  12:05pm dan healy:

wow, louis armstrong doing a cover of a hank williams piece! keep it up.
  1:16pm charlie:

Thanks, Dan! I can't take credit for Satchmo's Hank version, but I can tell you that I found that record at a WFMU record fair.
  9:17pm amber of missouri:

the Critters! Nice!!
  1:02am Kadri and Salat:

"Left Behind" by Happy Flowers...WOW! and the Bert and Ernie lead in... what's the word... genius, maybe?
  10:28am Charlie:

More like luck, as in what preparation plus opportunity equals. When you look at a lot of old records all the time, you're bound to make some connections.
That Critters song is a fave from when I was a kid, still sounds good to me.
  4:42pm Michael:

Comments? Neato. Love the show. I really wish all the hosts on this fine station would follow Charlie's trailblazing path into the future of free form radio. Or at least use the acu-playlist for their shows.
  3:37pm Charlie:

I love the accu-playlist feature too, and I think it's great that we have the option to use -- or not use -- features like the acu-playlist. But doing a live playlist can be distracting while doing a show, and I respect whatever our DJs have to do to create great radio!
