9:16am 1whoknewcthulhu:dBs followed by The Temptations? Toto, we've finally come HOME! 9:16am duke:Temptations!!! 9:18am dan:A Three stooges song? 9:18am tonyb:Morning all. The Dave Earle Johnson new to me. Happens to be the names of our twin cats, Rose and Lily. Thanks Bob! 9:19am queems:moodies!! 9:20am annie:in a dream i had last night, i was explaining to someone the selections of music you play; i was sure to mention NRBQ 9:20am dan:RIP Ray Thomas. Along with Ian Anderson and Chris Wood, the trio of excellent rock and roll flutists. 9:20am Sem:My, my, my, haven't heard this in some time. 9:21am melinda:I like the Moodies 9:21am WilliamfromDumont:Great choice. Ray Thomas R.I.P. 9:22am queems:they are finally getting inducted into the hall of fame. my mom is psyched 9:22am Hughie Considine:Leave it to Bob to pull out a charming, low-key deep cut by the Moody Blues, about about whom I usually roll my eyes. 9:23am dan:I got to see the Moodies (sans Ray). They still put on an amazing show today. 9:24am dan:Please do a 1st song 1st album theme show Bob. 9:24am 1whoknewcthulhu:Ah--Spirit! Still love this album. 9:26am dan:Whatever happened to good musicianship in mainstream music? Bands like Coldplay, Maroon 5 etc.. got nothing on the Moodies and Spirit. 9:27am DeebiefromSoCal:Laura Nyro!!! Love her voice. 9:28am dan:For that matter, where are the female singers like Laura Nyro today? 9:33am dan:RnR HoF are a shitty organization. How can they induct Green Day before Chicago, The Moodies and Steve Miller? 9:33am Hughie Considine:Dan, look around. There are plenty of singers of both sexes doing great work and playing their instruments well. 9:38am mauri:Swell saturday Bob and gang. sounding goood! 9:39am GListener MW:“TC” here = Terry Chambers? Loving this song!!! 9:39am dan:@ Hughie
But they're not charting in the mainstream. You have to dig through endless YouTube files and Free Form shows to find it. Thank goodness for WFMU.
9:40am pp:amazing colin m is making a comeback, nice 9:41am GListener MW:Ah, Colin Moulding & Terry Chambers — and this is new! Awesome to hear these two collaborating after so long 9:41am dan:For a song from 1917, it sounds clear cut and digital 9:42am Uncle Michael:My theory is that Colin and Terry are trying to coax Andy back. 9:43am GListener MW:(Just reading this review of the whole EP here: http://xtcbumperbookoffunforboysandgirls.blogspot.ca/2017/11/review-of-great-aspirations-by-tc-i-aka.html?m=1 ) 9:43am GListener MW:@UncleMichael — Gawd, I’d be over the moon if that happened... one of my all time favorite (and, most-collected) bands 9:45am Uncle Michael:Notice the lack of guitar on that TC&I track... I think they're saving a spot for him. 9:51am GListener MW:Very much so — that could be tracked in easily 9:53am GListener MW:if Andy passes, they could always loop in X’s John Doe and rename the new group “X, TC & I”. 9:54am dan:First by the piano I thought it was Eric Carmen, than the voice sounded like Cat Stevens at first. 10:03am Uncle Michael:I'm not suggesting that track needs guitar. I'm suggesting they're demonstrating that their band needs one. 10:20am moe:just purchased the TC and I cd from Pledge Music... autographed... always like XTC... even the Rundgren produced Skylarking... 10:23am Ross T:Skylarking is magnificent!
NRBQ. Spirit, Wild Honey Beach Boys, XTC, and lots of amazing things I never knew of...this is the best radio show.

I also found a sealed Wonderwall Music!!! 10:56am herb.nyc:sorry, not listening now. but i see Fleetwood Mac was played. at the Lester Bangs play, he dissed the band. we laughed. 10:57am Greg from ZONE 5:Thanks as always, Bob! 10:57am dan:Mary Hopkin and Laura Nyro should have done an album together. 10:57am herb.nyc:just tuned in, and i checked out the TC & I link. great song. 10:58am mauri:good show bob! 10:58am Dano59:Avett Brothers do Geo Harrison? that's incredible! 11:00am Zetti:Thanks Bob! 2:00pm Marie:Hey, I never realized what a great singer Lou Rawls was. 3:43pm Tommy Martin:in re: Mary Hopkin"Goodby" written and produced by Paul McCartney was only on 45rpm.
