You're welcome for the virus! California is a loving and giving state.

Had the show on and absentmindedly clicked on a link a pal had sent (of some psychedelic band Jon Anderson was in). Forgot what I'd done and soon I was wondering by Fool's Paradise was spinning some ponderous Yes track. Though I must admit that Mac Curtis' slappin' bass take on "Tales from Topographic Oceans" remains a personal fave.
Avatar 1:39pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Wow! The crowd loves Chuck Rhubarb. Must be the out of control vibrato.
  1:43pm davefromtoronto:

can someone tell me what "craw-dad holin' in the mornin'" means???

It won't make no sense unless you got swamp guinea in your blood.

Amen, sinner!

Does Lloyd’s of London still insure celebrity things?
Avatar 2:07pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Do you have a celebrity thing you need insured?

Happy birthday Zacherley! 97 today.

@JukeJointJonny: I’m not falling for that one again. I bought this thing on Craigslist so it is legally mine because I gave someone money.

Afternoon, Rex! Sorry I'm late…had to stop by Jones and get some breakfast cocktails from Matt Fiveash.
  2:45pm RevPhil:

The original label for "It's A Gas" is the Big Top label. The song was part of the album "Mad Twist and Rock n' Roll" that came out around 1962.
Avatar 2:45pm Marc Francis:

12 hours of (roundtrip) driving for 8 hours of fun? Sounds doable, actually!
