Sat. 1/6/18 9:04am Jeff:
Come back, Danny (and bring Peter with you). We need you now more than ever!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:04am dan:
Good ol Fleetwood Mac jungle music to open up the first show of 2018.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:06am WilliamfromDumont:
Morning Bob and all. Need to give a shout out to The Who Sell Out. Released in the U.S. 50 years ago today.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:07am Kevin Sutton:
I am going through a rediscovery of early FM (Peter Green's) Love It!
♥ Sat. 1/6/18 9:07am Sem:
Hello, Bob, good morning. Hello, far-flung Brainenoids.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:07am Mark R:
Bob this is the first chance I've had to listen to you live in a long time. Digging the vintage Mac, man, omg. Somebody laid a bunch of live gigs on me from this era and they were just a stunning live band in '69/'70. Maybe the best live band of their era, seriously. Oh and now there's Spirit. Such a favorite. My older brother had this first Spirit album and I couldn't get over the fact that they had a guy with a shaved head in their band. I'd never heard of such a thing!
♥ Sat. 1/6/18 9:09am Sem:
This reminds me of a Led Zep tune.
♥ Sat. 1/6/18 9:11am Ricky:
Hi, very happy to be here.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:11am Mark R:
Spirit Fans, for years the only Spirit albums you could find were Best of and 12 Dreams, but a few years ago, I discovered a 2-CD very comprehensive collection called "Time Circle," if you're interested in digging a little deeper on them. It has "Gramophone Man" on it, I just checked.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:12am Mark R:
Raise your hand if you had a crush on Chaka Khan in the 70s.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:13am KevinfromBayRidge:
Good Morning All. Great start to the show and the year, Bob!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:15am Doc Rock:

A favorite of mine. Hello You!!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:16am Mark R:
Wow, never knew Oregon did an album with Elvin Jones. This is fantastic!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:17am Jeff:
Sat. 1/6/18 9:21am Mark R:
Bob, love how you've strung this set together, from Fleetwood Mac to this beautiful African music, it's so seamless and great...
Sat. 1/6/18 9:22am Cooh John:
Jazzy morning to yuse all

Bobbie Gentry, we need you now more than ever.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:25am dan:
Mac, Spirit, Oscar, Aretha and the gang are lightning up my Saturday.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:26am Mark R:
Nice to hear one of the deep cuts from this Aretha album, there were so many hits, you never get to hear songs like this one.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:28am Jeff:
Wow, love this Robyn Hitchcock track!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:28am Mark R:
There are still tickets left for the February 15th Robyn Hitchcock show at Monty Hall!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:31am GListener MW:
I’ve been loving all the R.Hitchcock lately on WFMU lately on multiple DJ’s shows!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:45am dan:
Shame that Laura Nyro didn't have more of a mainstream success as a performer.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:45am 1whoknewcthulhu:
More Laura Nyro! And to think I first heard "Eli's Comin'" through the Three-Dog Night version.
Sat. 1/6/18 9:46am dfb:
wow this Nyro is rocking and rolling
Sat. 1/6/18 9:57am Linda Lee:
beautiful morning! fantastic music! thanks Bob!
Sat. 1/6/18 9:57am Dungaroos Kipawah:
Perhaps I've missed this in past, Bob, but what is "Tom Ardolino's Magic Jukebox"--a release? Or just songs he liked & shared on mixtapes?
Sat. 1/6/18 9:58am herb.nyc:
I don't know how to drive. The car song just killed me. R.I.P.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:00am dfb:
every morning our love is re born ing
Sat. 1/6/18 10:00am dan:
I didn't need to look and I already knew it was The Beach Boys. You can't mistake those voices.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:08am WilliamfromDumont:
Jerry Newman was also heavily involved in the early days of WKCR.

Sat. 1/6/18 10:14am dan:
Outstanding Rolling Stones choice.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:14am Linda Lee:
Brian Jones ~ absolute genius & the father of this band. Shame.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:15am Linda Lee:
*My* Stones ~ when I love them best.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:16am tadpoles:
"You're obsolete my Baby" - ouch!
Sat. 1/6/18 10:18am Linda Lee:
bitchy as only Jagger could be.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:20am dan:
That and "You've Got A Lot Of Nerve To Say You Are MY Friend" are the two lyrics that hurt badly.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:21am Linda Lee:
another exceptionally bitchy lyricist :-)
Sat. 1/6/18 10:27am Jeff:
Bob, thanks for turning me on to David Earle Johnson!
I thought I knew it all...
Sat. 1/6/18 10:29am tadpoles:
@Linda Lee... @dan... Not sure if Jagger was writing about Chrissie Shrimpton but if so it's amazing how he turns the tables calling her "unfaithful"!
Sat. 1/6/18 10:31am paul:
Marianne was Faithful
Sat. 1/6/18 10:32am Linda Lee:
standard tactic of abuse, of course ..
Sat. 1/6/18 10:34am Linda Lee:
she might have been unfaithful too. generally good reasons for that. :-)
Sat. 1/6/18 10:44am Jeff:
Sounds like Greeny?
Sat. 1/6/18 10:45am SmokinJ:
Man this shit rocked!

Sat. 1/6/18 10:46am Chris Volz:
Peter Green = MONSTER
Sat. 1/6/18 10:48am dan:
Teenage Steve Winwood. Bieber should have studied how Winwood sang and maybe he could have been good.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:50am Linda Lee:
Winwood ~ another genius. fantastic.
Sat. 1/6/18 10:53am Jeff:
I’d rather have ants in my pants than rats in my room!
Sat. 1/6/18 10:54am Linda Lee:
@Jeff ~ bet you wouldn't! :-D
Sat. 1/6/18 10:57am tadpoles:
Nice show thanks Bob. A good beginning to hopefully a very good year!

Sun. 1/7/18 7:21am Anders:
That Spirit song lifts a chunk of melody from "What becomes of the broken hearted".
