Never heard this Everly Bros track before! It's so great, just like this show!

Thanks Slayboch. Need to check out your tribute to Billy, I'm sure it was wonderful.

It reminded me of "Down in the Valley" a littlettle.

Matt F:

Difficult to hear this one.
Cooh John:

Feelin' it with this song.

I did my best...nowhere near as great as all the shows you guys have been doing this week. Best take away from Thursday's Dave the Spazz show is that The Hound shows are archived! Been listening to those all week.

Now that's a segue.
Sissophonic Cheryl:

This is beautiful, sweetheart, thank you.

Not to 'our' liking? I can assure you that 49% of WFMU listeners are very happy indeed!

The original 'Alley Oop' was one of the earliest records I had & heard in my life
- & I didn't know til like this year it was Kim Fowley.

getting schooled...very poignant...thanks to all

this was lux's fave

These stories continue to bring tears to my eyes. My wife says I complain too much. In honor of the mighty Billy's tenacity and strength throughout his difficult illnesses Im gonna try and suck it up no mattter how big a baby i wanna be!

Gaylord Fields:

That's why you're a BluesMAN and not a Blues Boy!

You're right Gaylord!

Howsabout an early Doug Sahm side to soothe the mourning souls up here in Rockland?!?
Tommy Jack Haynes:

I have never heard anybody honored so much at the station . Good for Billy. People that takes risks and go out of thier way for things they believe in are something to behold and there are many at FMU and the FMU extended family
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm

Keep all the Billy stories coming you guys!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:20pm
Matt F:

The Presley story reminds me of another piece of classic Billy stage patter, from when the A-Bones shared a bill with the Jim Jones Revue in New Orleans during Ponderosa Stomp week: "People have described the Jim Jones Revue as a cross between the MC5 and Jerry Lee Lewis, which is interesting because the A-Bones are often described as a cross between the DC5 and Jerry Lewis".

@Matt F: Funny and accurate!

Thanks Todd-O!

@Derek B: Thank you kindly for sharing that with me. That resonates with me particularly strongly right now.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:40pm

That was beautiful, Todd. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Sissophonic Cheryl:

Beautiful. Crying.
Dungaroos Kipawah:

At one of the Stomps, I showed Billy a copy of the Toussaint McCall "Nothing Takes the Place of You" Ronn LP that Mr. McCall had just signed. He was mesmerized by the hilarious cover, in which a sad, lonely, coiffured man reads his Dear John kissoff and his now ex looks at him, from the misty diffuse distance, ready to jumpstart her new romance with assuredly a rich Adonis. Both wear powder blue clothes and the whole thing looks like it was art directed by the local yearbook photographer. Billy looked at it, called Miriam over and beamed, "This guy looks just like Teddy Randazzo!" I can't look at it now without thinking of Randazzo, Billy or Miriam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm

love this del shannon - ola gaylord!

it doesn't get better than Norton Records.
Dungaroos Kipawah:

Fine, fitting words, Todd. You just got the waterworks started again and I didn't think my body had the mositure to produce another tear this week.
Avatar 5:44pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That was an impressive bit of writing.
I didn't know a thing about the man - altho' obviously impacted by the universally renowned & beloved Norton Records
- but I have been amused & inspired now by him too.

Such a lovely eulogy, Todd. My eyes got misty. Long live Billy in our hearts and minds. I wish I met him. (Oops, Todd said "the Above w Matt Clark")

what RevRab said
to me, these records are the sound of freedom and liberation
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:53pm
Matt F:

One of the eulogists at Billy's funeral, I forget who, remarked that Norton never put out a bad record. Gaylord was sitting right in front of me and I could see him struggling not to raise his hand...
Thee NoCount:

YES!! I start every gig with Squat with Me Baby.
Mike Sin:

Had to pull the car over and get a comment in... Another great, very touching tribute show.
Mike Flynn:

Thanks Todd. Great show!!! Brought back some great memories.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:56pm

I love how so many Billy Miller stories involve White Castle.
Thee NoCount:

Fantastic show, Todd.

Of course. Great, great show guys, thank you.

Beautifully done, Todd. Nailed the essence of the man.
