Listener comments!

  9:02am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Good morning, Bob and all. What a glorious Saturday morning. And what a start: THE REPLACEMENTS!
  9:03am David in ATL from NJ:

Good morning, Bob!

Good morning everyone else!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11am Uncle Michael, Uncle Jesus:

Good morning.
  9:14am melinda:

I love Free Design on a Saturday morning.
  9:16am WilliamfromDumont:

Good morning Bob and all. Great choice for Steely Dan tune.
  9:17am rivieradoug:

Good Morning everyone. Prayers for the people of Florida.
  9:20am J.D.:

In a world full of heartbreak and despair, Bob's weekly program is a beacon of light.
Thanks Bob!
Avatar 9:21am SmokinJ:

Groovy set bb... Mornin' all!
  9:22am J.D.:

Hey Doc Rock, are you out there?
  9:27am J.D.:

Leo Gorcey???
  9:27am Doc Rock:

I'm here
  9:27am J.D.:

All right! I feel better now.
  9:30am WilliamfromDumont:

Happy 40th Bob.
  9:39am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Somehow, Steely Dan channeling Lewis Carroll seems perfectly appropriate. Can you imagine what they could have done with Jabberwocky?
  9:41am David in ATL from NJ:

This is one of many SD songs that should have made it to an official release.
  9:43am Mike tp:

wow 40. years on the air.special shows always.i started listening to Bob when I discovered wfmu 81. been a nice Roach trip!!!!road trip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am melinda:

Enjoying the tunes
Avatar 9:46am BnowB:

Grateful I am in a safe place with Wfmu and BB. Peace
  9:46am J.D.:

I've been listening to Bob since 1980 (you might have seen me post as "Jeff" previously-it's my alias). I recall reading a piece in the Village Voice that mentioned both Bob and Frank O'Toole and promptly got the FMU signal in the far reaches of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Been listening ever since!
Avatar 9:48am BnowB:

I remember that article.. LTL since i was a teenager but around that time id say...
  9:50am Dennis Diken:

love this Copland piece Bob!
Avatar 9:51am BnowB:

No maybe not in 80.. more like 84... i remember a village voice article maybe i just found it online years later. Welcome here.. hounds.. of america...
  9:56am WilliamfromDumont:

Somewhere in one my boxes of old cassettes I have a few Brainen "airchecks" from the mid-eighties. I remember an afternoon show on Wednesdays?
Avatar 10:01am BnowB:

nice long set bob awesome!
  10:08am J.D.:

Avatar 10:12am Bob Brainen:

Thanks to the wellwishers! And yes, pray for Florida.
  10:14am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Remember when Rod Stewart sang the blues--and the Faces backed him?
  10:15am Dano59:

Nice one-two here Bob ... Q-Faces... 2 ensemble grooves I always try to emulate
Avatar 10:25am SmokinJ:

Arthur Yes!
Avatar 10:26am Bob Brainen:

Yup Wm. from D. I was on Wednesdays for a couple decades!
  10:33am Stuart Rose:

Congratulations, Bob. You've given a lot of musical pleasure to a lot of people all these years. You've also stretched our musical tastes and knowledge. Much health and strength to keep keeping on.
  Swag For Life Member 10:39am tadpoles:

Nice memories Bob. Makes me recall my introduction to Love. Flicking through a bunch of sale singles I came across "Alone Again Or" a double sider with "A House Is Not A Motel" and it was in Stereo. Had never heard of them but a stereo single was a new one to me so I bought it...probably for 50c. Loved them ever since.

Love "Jools" too. Thanks for the memories. Love your show. Cheers.

  10:47am KevinfromBayRidge:

Mazel Tov, Mr Brainen. I've been a faithful listener for over two decades. Wish I had experienced the balance. Thanks for the musical edification although I wasn't an Upsala student
  10:50am Stuart Rose:

1whoknewcthulu- Yeah, Rod had a rough hewn voice and could really read a lyric. Good thing the old recordings are there- Rod will need them when he gets to Heavens Gate and they start hassling him about If You Want My Body.
Avatar 10:55am Stay Frosty:

Loving that Maxie Roach. Thank you Bob!
  10:58am Doc Rock:

Thanks Bob
  3:59pm Marie:
