  9:30am Phelger Nank:


I quit my job to work for myself at home...would like to say it was so I could listen to more FMU, but that wasn't the primary concern. Tho I did quit a job in the 80s because I couldn't tear myself away from The cosby show.
  9:30am Doug Morris:

Listening in from Portland, OR. Taking the journey out of my mind (again).
Avatar 9:33am Dr. Goot:

Morn' y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am Mike East:

hey bob, did you hear the Jacco Gardner set on efd's show last Wednesday? Definitely worth a listen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am Sigurdur:

thats beautiful this "Snowflakes
Avatar 9:44am Bob Brainen:

No Mike, didn't get a chance to hear Jacco-will dig into archives!
  9:48am Mike Sheridan:

Bob, how bout some more Buffalo Springfield backing tracks?
Avatar 9:51am Bob Brainen:

Mike, that's all I have of B.S. backing tracks-the 2 on my CDR. Wish I had more!
Avatar 9:55am Dr. Goot:

I am donning my smoking jacket and digging this set, thanks!
Avatar 9:59am Detroit Mac:

This Family song is really hitting the "Flash-back" buttons in my brain. I like it!
Avatar 10:08am Phelger Nank:

Bob - Opera is the plural of opus.
  10:13am uncle flowed:

Bob, do you have any backing tracks for the Left Banke? If not, can you play Desiree? Thank you love your show!
  10:14am Chris V:

Mr. Excitement!
  10:15am Peter K.:

For whatever it's worth, the Blue Mitchell track you identified as "A Blue Time" by Tadd Dameron is actually "Strollin'," written by Horace Silver, from the same album. Trust me on this; I know that tune well.
Avatar 10:16am Phelger Nank:

Would love to hear some Rokia Traore...
Avatar 10:18am Bob Brainen:

Peter-what track number is "A Blue Time' then??
  10:29am Peter K.:

Well, on the LP "A Blue Time" is Side 2, Track 2, and "Strollin'" is Side 2, Track 3. I don't own "Smooth as the Wind" in any other format.
Avatar 10:31am Bob Brainen:

I 'm pretty sure this is A Blue Time-playing now-at 1030-ish.
  10:33am Peter K.:

I do believe you're right. I'm glad I gave you an excuse to play two tracks from that lovely album!
  10:49am Richard from Venezuela:

Nice set.
  10:52am bob g:

Great show!
Avatar 10:57am glenn:

hey, i have a question for y'all. on the gun club album, the las vegas story, they do an excerpt from "the creator has a master plan" by pharoah sanders. does anybody know exactly which part the excerpt is from? i hope that makes sense.
