I think the rain is ending up hear in 90.1 land which is good. I want to go to the local spring festival and get lunch and maybe some hippie nonsense and maybe some dessert if the ASPCA is having a bake sale.
Avatar 9:33am Cheri Pi:

For real though, Versailles by Upper crust might come in handy

Double dose of Roback. Nice.

This has been a great opening set, will tune in again after I arrive at work!

Yeah, I remember this track -- heavy airplay on the old WHFS before the sucking started.

Heya Joe!

I'm Canadian... that holiday was last week for me :)

Lord Bendover should have been tapped for the AcDc lead singer posish

Kiss is as rhythmically fluid as a drunk counting to four.
Avatar 10:00am Joe McG:

@CP: I was very impressed with Count Bassie's ability to hit those high notes! @Goyim: Ha! A nice simple Spector beat is perfect for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Goyim in the AM:

Ooh, play the controversial Crystals song next!
  10:02am miche:

The flying lizards - Then he kissed me
Avatar 10:03am Joe McG:

I should have done a set of "Kissed Me"s, eh?
  Swag For Life Member 10:03am tadpoles:

Hey Joe...The law requires me to tell you about the Hollywood Brats:

  10:06am Cooh John:

Guilty. I had this record.
Avatar 10:08am Joe McG:

@tadpoles: That's a great one! I have that EP. Wish I'd thought to bring it. OK, "Kissed Me" set in future. Any other versions?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Goyim in the AM:

The Beach Boys!
  10:12am Dean:

End of a song by The Boy's breaks into "...Kissed Me."
Avatar 10:12am BEAVO:

2 Athens GA bands in a row!
  10:12am Dean:

"Brickfield Nights," I think.

Geez, The Boys, sans apostrophe!

Well, it's been a nice listening morning. I'm going into town for the parade now. Se ya later!
Avatar 10:20am Joe McG:

Have fun at the parade, Ken!
Avatar 10:21am Joe McG:

And thanks for the "Kissed Me" suggestions. I need a couple more, though, for a full set. I'll dig.
Avatar 10:22am BEAVO:

Of course all those bands have singers as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Gordon FM:

Enjoying the Athens-heavy set from Western Mexico!
  10:22am Jack:

Great show so far. I could really use some Paul Simon this morning - how about 'Dazzling Blue'?
Avatar 10:22am Joe McG:

@BEAVO: They do??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am Goyim in the AM:

Add in a couple of "he hit me and it felts", and you've got it easy, Joe.
Avatar 10:24am BEAVO:

I think Of Montreal might have an instrumental
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24am Gordon FM:

Just need some BBQ Killers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27am SeanG:

always dig Sonny
Avatar 10:27am Joe McG:

Athens has too many bands that play instrumentals.
  10:30am Dean:

Cheating, I learn that The Flying Lizards did THKM, as did Springsteen several times live, and he has lots of bootlegs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am Goyim in the AM:

53 Miles West of Venus is about as close as the B-52s get to instrumental, I think.
Avatar 10:35am Kurt Gottschalk:

i missed kiss on wfmu?
shouldn't i get some kind of google alert in advance when that happens?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Gene Simmons says yer pathetic Kurt...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oh wait he apologized...
  10:38am Dean:

I think B-52s do have instrumentals. Or at least instrumental remixes.
Avatar 10:39am Joe McG:

Listener Richard let me know that the B52's DO have an instrumental at the end of the "Cosmic Thing" album. Thanks, Richard!
  10:42am Dean:

Who knew Graham Parker collaborated with George Carlin?

...pretty good if you haven't heard it in 45 years!...seriously - I love Iron Butterfly...
  10:45am AgentPeter:

Have to assume the Mojo Nixon version is next...
  10:46am Dean:

Band I was in eons ago did a live mash-up of IAGDV and Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust." We called it "In-A-Gadda-Da-Dust."
Avatar 10:46am Joe McG:

I hope I just did the only Iron Butterfly/Sylvers segueway in history.

good morning Joe and Noiselings
...Joe, i was listening via fm and -where those beeps in the recording? they're not in the album version, but then the song's called "the raid" on the album.(i think)
Avatar 10:50am Joe McG:

@coelcanth: Yes, it's a bit of a GP joke, I guess!
Avatar 10:53am coelacanth:

ha! okay. i do remember the beeps on the phones when it was being tapped.
...Great chairman of the board track, i never heard. (btw)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Parq:

Joining in for the second half, Joe. Yes, I was a little confused by the Graham beeping, too. I thought maybe there was a FedEx truck backing up outside.
Avatar 10:56am Joe McG:

@Parq: Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am Cooh John:

Sensational singles, Joe.
Avatar 10:58am Joe McG:

Thanks, C.J.! Some fun ones today.
Avatar 11:02am coelacanth:

i adore "bad boy" too. i used to think it was Louie Prima.
  11:04am Dean:

There's an 80-minute CD version, too.
Avatar 11:06am coelacanth:

i'm pretty sure "the raid" has no fcc-unfriendly phrases, so as you said -just a joke.
  11:10am melinda:

I'm not familiar with Twin Guns but the description sounds really good.
Avatar 11:10am Polyus:

Linda was sitting in front of a dressing room mirror looking beautiful on that cover. It made quite an impression on 3rd-grader me. She unseated Tanya Tucker and Carrie Fisher as my gateway to the mysteries and wonders of womanhood.
Avatar 11:10am Polyus:

(that sounds kinda creepy, but come on, I was really young)
Avatar 11:14am Joe McG:

I hear ya, Polyus. For some people it was Carly, for others it was Linda.

for me it was both!

Eddie and the Hot Rods?

  11:30am Dean:

I guess pub rock is a limited set.

Love this "Denver."
  11:31am Dean:

Kursaal Flyers? Chicago Symphony Orchestra?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hot damn that.
  11:32am V Priceless:

Thanks for the Dr Feelgood, Joe. Great freakin' band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am foofs:

I saw Eddie & them Hot Rods a few years ago. Great rock 'n' roll show, only slightly marred by Eddie spending every available non-singing moment waggling his buttocks at us. Which were the size of dried peas.

Eddie & the Warm Compresses
Avatar 11:34am Sem Chumbo:

Superb this morning, Joe. Thanks, and I'll see you next time!
Avatar 11:35am coelacanth:

the beatles were a pretty good pub rock band too...

101ers surprisingly sharp. I need to hear more of them.

Always good to be with Joe McG!
  11:39am Dean:

Finally met Brinsley Schwarz when he and Graham Parker performed in Berkeley. Such a privilege.

That "Christmas at the Patti" EP was a scarce treasure at the time.

Hope you folks enjoyed the pub rockin'! Don't forget to tune in for Eggs Over Easy next week.

now i'm hungry!

Me. too! Lunch is around the corner!
  11:49am Dean:

Have raw pork: http://www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com/2016/05/whos-ready-for-some-pork-sashimi

...which brings to mind a faux-pub rock band, The Pork Dukes, probably not playable on regulated airwaves.
