Listener comments!

Get out of the way, hank Levine!
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:12am josephteilhard:

That Cymbals song is so obscure.... omg. can't find anything about it online. So good.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 9:15am Ken From Hyde Park:

The James Brown instrumental seems to be the bed music from a former WFMU DJ (Hatch, maybe?).
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 9:16am glenn:

all right! ira the k is the man. p.s. - the mets suck.
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:16am Santos L Halper:

Good morning Bob and Ira. Happy Marathon! And Savannah is same time as y'all BTW.
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:22am Santos L Halper:

Wonder if that Sneakers is different than the comp I got many years ago; Ryko maybe?
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:33am Santos L Halper:

It's 9:32 on my phone here in the SAV
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 9:39am Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of radio heroes, check out the back panel of my "WFMU Airwave Idol" trading card from the 2004 Marathon: blogfiles.wfmu.org...
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 9:48am glenn:

speaking of radio heroes. ^^^^^
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:50am Santos L Halper:

Time does move a little differently down here, I'll allow. That's why we love it! And Ira, I won't even bring up how you didn't play my song the other night cuz it was such a great set ; ). Next year...
  Sat. 3/1/14 9:57am 293:


What sparked your interested in 'only' tracks (only vocals, only horns...)?
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:09am Alfred Ron Richards:

Saw the Endless Boogie/Steven Malkmus show in DC last night...outstanding choogling from the former, who only played 2.5 songs, each of Yes length, and a world-class rendition of The Mac's "Oh Well" from Malker.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:12am SeanG:

Hey Doug, McCabe and Mrs. Miller is my favorite movie too! EPIC
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:13am Chris H:

Bob B, the only reason to get up on Saturday mornings.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:21am Alfred Ron Richards:

McCabe: In my Top 5 Altman films...wonderful deconstruction of practically every aspect of the tradition western, if I can say that w/o being a pretentious b-hole.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:22am HarktheUmpire:

Beertalk on a Saturday morning! I'm in!
Ira, what's your favourite beer when touring Europe?
I saw you guys play in Prague (loved every minute of it!) and, though I don't mean to slag off American beer, I'm sure you'll admit the Czech have a pretty good thing going. or? Not as good a thing as the Belgians do though.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:28am Toddophonic:

Bob claims not to know me. The flip of "Break Away" is "Celebrate The News".
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:33am Caryn:

McCabe and Mrs. Miller is fantastic, but my favourite film is another western: Once Upon a Time in the West. The reimagining of wild west myths and history away from white men and towards women and minorities. Great use of music, too.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:34am Doug Schulkind:

Yes! Altman's use of music is uniformly brilliant. Leonard Cohen never sounded so good as in that soundtrack.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

Any listeners/pledgers from Bosnia and Herzegovina today? Happy Independence Day to those residents.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:44am tedbrinkley:

not from there, just BOBsnia and pungent HerbZegovinia....!
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:47am Jay:

Fave Stones LP: Satanic Majesties
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:47am Chris H:

Hard to argue with Aftermath, but I've always dug Between the Buttons.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:48am Uncle Michael:

This is my favorite Beefheart album too. Stones...probably Exile.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:48am Dano59:

My sincere but controversial favorite: Metamorphosis
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:49am glenn:

veronika voss. i've probably seen it 15 times.
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:50am Dano59:

Bob is my favorite NRBQ fan / scholar
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:51am Chris H:

Mine too
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:52am JSG:

Judging by this, I'd say the answer to Ira's Association Q is no.

Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:52am Caryn:

Fave Stones: Exile On Main St., followed closely by Beggars Banquet. Let It Bleed and Satanic Majesties fighting it out for third (order changes with my mood).
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:53am glenn:

exile, then some girls.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:56am glenn:

this isn't good. www.thestar.com...
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:57am Santos L Halper:

Great stuff as always Bob. You and Ira make a good team; looking forward to DMandl next week.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:57am SmokinJ:

Bob! You've earned my respect yet again! ;)
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:57am Nanker de Tucson:

Favourite Stones LP -- Aftermath [ UK release, not the USA London label one ]
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:58am Nanker de Tucson:

Excellent show again today, BobB !
  Sat. 3/1/14 10:59am Chris H:

Ira's right, its hard to get more exotic than Passaic.
Avatar Sat. 3/1/14 10:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

WooF & MU are twitching their tails...congrats on reaching today's goal! Thanks, pledgers!
