Tortellini Day. Interesting. In Argentina, the 29th of every month is Dia de Ñoquis (Day of the Gnocchi) . The story is that the 29th was just before payday and money being tight there's only potatoes and flour around. I guess in February its especially rough.

There are some backing singers on Soft Machine's "Why Are We Sleeping?" (recorded in NYC in '68) credited as "Cake". Apparently some girls Kevin Ayers met (as he tended to do). I'd always wondered who they were, now I'm pretty sure they were "The Cake".

what was his one hit - 'good morning?' one with the video that looks like an uncle remus movie.

Al Jarreau's "Take Five" is pretty classic. And top of the morning to you, Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 11:36am Ken From Hyde Park:

I know "We're in This Love Together" from Al Jarreau.
  Mon. 2/13/17 11:36am Dean:

"Thinkin' About It, Too," the opening track on All Fly Home, is sublime pop/jazz. The entire double-live album is great. Maybe "We Got By," which closes it. His covers on All Fly Home are lovely, too.
Avatar    Mon. 2/13/17 11:37am BEAVO:

His version of Spain by Chick Corea is great.

I noticed too, Dale. Off for less than a minute, then slowly brought power back up. I'm guessing that's some automated fx, and that now it's running on emergency something-or-other,

Hope Drumpf's FCC lackey doesn't end NetNeutrality & toss the whole online enterprise...
     Mon. 2/13/17 11:43am Listener Robert:

I didn't think about that, Dale. Yesterday my fear had been of losing juice here. but all that happened was some icy branches, not heavy enough to make a hole, bouncing off the roof last night. So yeah, hoping it's as you say, external to WMFU.
  Mon. 2/13/17 11:44am Brendan:

The Smooth Jazz /Soft Office Rock era scared me from ever getting close to Al's music. Was afraid it would be a gateway drug so I kept it at arms length. Well actually thats not true. I think it was the gag reflux.
     Mon. 2/13/17 11:45am Listener Robert:

END net neutrality, Rabbit? To my knowledge that hasn't been FCC policy anyway, just the threat of it.

  Mon. 2/13/17 11:48am Dean:

I hear you, @Brendan. I had the same problem, but constant exposure at a record store job in the late '70s helped me learn to enjoy it selectively. And nobody would dispute that Al Jarreau's voice and delivery were distinctive, like him or not.

I saw some Al Jarreau in our Basement Library last week, but alas, I don't have time enough to run down and get it.
