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!
♥ 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.
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. ♥ 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.:S.P.A.M.P.I.N.A.T.O. 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 10:25am SmokinJ:Arthur Yes! 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. ♥ 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.
♥ 10:39am Marc Francis:DAMN FINE SONG! 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. 10:55am Stay Frosty:Loving that Maxie Roach. Thank you Bob! 10:58am Doc Rock:Thanks Bob 3:59pm Marie:Gracias Bob
