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
  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!
  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!
  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?
  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:
