Always loved the “psychedelic” Temps!
  9:05am dan:

I'm more of a Four Tops person, but this is still good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05am Hughie Considine:

Last week's first tune post-intro was XTC's Cynical Days, now this topical burner. Perhaps this is the newly denoted social commentary slot?
  9:06am Jeff:

Good Morning (by the way)
Doc, you there?
Avatar 9:08am duke:

This Ventures thing is pretty cool too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08am Hughie Considine:

When I close my eyes I see a tollbooth collector dancing to this song.
  9:08am Jeff:

Not your typical surf instrumental thang!

  9:11am Doc Rock:

Good Morning Bob + All Listeners Nice Start w/ The Temptations. I’m Here Jeff - How Ya Doing?
  9:11am dan:

A piano and a voice is all you need to make good music.
  9:12am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Swallow the evidence, annie, and no one will know what happened.
  9:12am Jeff:

I’m good now that it’s Saturday morning, and I can listen to Bob Brainen make some sense of this world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am doctorjazz:

OOPS, too many doctors in the house, sorry (blush...)

Enjoying the set, hi everyone. It's a blessing to be able to hear new Nina Simone's track. Ignorance is bliss

  9:23am WilliamfromDumont:

The David Hemmings LP has been on my wishlist forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am melinda:

@dan haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am melinda:

Was that the actor David Hemmings?
  9:28am dan:

@melinda There's only 1 David Hemmings. Yes that is the actor.
  9:40am dan:

Victor Garber is also an accomplished Broadway singer. He was the original Anthony Hope in Sweeney Todd on Broadway. Not surprised that he started out singing.
  9:48am WilliamfromDumont:

Kenny Jones is simply one of the best rock drummers.
  9:49am dan:

PP Arnold and Steve Marriott just had the perfect blend vocally.
  Swag For Life Member 9:51am tadpoles:

Lovely coupling in more ways than one...thanks Bob!
  9:51am David Eagle:

I've heard Joan Osborne sing Motown and she's great at that.
Avatar 10:21am BEAVO:

CD-R gone bad.
  10:31am GListener MW:

That was some great Coltrane
  10:31am Dave:

Shorter than the frogs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am Bobby Whirlwind:

The Coltrane piece was perfect
  10:40am Dave:

I love your show but you need a pop filter on your mic.
  10:51am Listener Robert:

I usually enjoy your program a good deal, which is why I've been listening since you were on afternoons. Today's program is an exception: I really, VERY MUCH enjoyed it. Thanks.
Avatar 10:53am SmokinJ:

Butterfield!: Right Fucking On! 8-)
  10:53am dan:

Commercial radio that plays the same songs over and over again and can shove itself up its own ass. You're the real deal Bob Brainen. Radio that is unpredictable and varied.
  10:55am McGreivey:

Really great shoe today.
  10:55am zopa:

I want Billie Holiday!
Avatar 10:56am SmokinJ:

Switch players bb!
  10:56am WilliamfromDumont:

  10:59am brendan:

Was that trumpet piece not an Ornette Coleman tune?
