9:02am :Good morning 9:04am :Good morning, Bob and all. It's a beautiful spring day in the NY metro area, but I ain't going outside when I know there's so much good music going down inside. 9:05am :Good morning bb & musical explorers! 8-) 9:08am :Sunny saturday to all! 9:14am :Good ol' Manischewitz. 9:14am :good sunny Morning it 'tis yes Bob and everyone and great music this morning as always 9:16am :to 1whoknewcthulhu and others seeking outdoors --- >> www.wfmu.org... 9:17am :wfmu.org... < --- correction oops .. 9:18am :was just thinking the other day that it's been a long time since i've heard Doc Watson on FMU 9:19am :buenos dias Bob and fellow Braniacs. 9:20am :I didn't have to look and I knew that was The Bear singing. 9:21am :I used to love Canned Heat. 9:21am :Very underated band> 9:21am :Love me some Doc in the morning! Great tune! 9:23am :I like the smooth sounds of the Sour Note Seven. 9:28am :Morning all! 9:31am :Canned Heat related trivia: there's a crater on the Moon named after Henry Vestines' father. 9:32am :Morning Bob & Brainen-acs, Didn't realize till recently that NRBQ played the Fillmore East 🥁 9:32am :Morning Bob and all. NRBQ sounds great. Nice remaster. 9:33am :Woah,that's cool Jack! 9:40am :And yet Green Day is in the HoF. WTF???????? 9:42am :Raiders Rule! 9:43am :Good tune.
Happy Patriot's Day weekend everyone
9:43am :I thought that many of the 60s and 70s soul and r&b acts aren't in the HoF. Like Spinners, etc. Even Rundgren. Screw the HoF 9:43am :Agree Bob...under Paul Revere's goofy surface was a great Rock band.
IMHO the greatest omission from the Hall of Fame is Arthur Lee & Love. Influenced a great many later bands including the Stones, the Doors and Hendrix. Their music still holds up great today. Cheers.
9:43am :@Dan - know your enemy 9:44am :The R&R H of F is a total scam! 9:46am :That first set started with lots of nicely layered harmonies and guitars - not a genre, but I like it.
My top "snub" is NRBQ. i brought it up with Warren Haynes of the HoF once and he said "I love NRBQ too but they don't have a chance."
9:46am :The HoF still hasn't inducted Jethro Tull, The Doobie Brothers, ELP, ELO, among others. Glad to see the Moody Blues, Cars and Dire Straits getting their due. 9:47am :Warren's top choices - the ones he voted to go on the ballot - in 2004 were Neil Diamond and Dorsey Burnette. 9:47am :@tadpoles. Totally agree about Love and Arthur Lee. Had the immense good fortune to see Lee in Liverpool in the early Nineties, and it was one of the greatest gigs I ever saw, even after his desolate years had obviously taken their toll. 9:49am :It's a popularity contest, record sales being more important than aesthetics (hence the perennial debate over what is and isn't 'rock and roll'). Green Day is apparently the greatest punk band of all time per one poll. Oh well. 9:50am :New topic: Is Del Amitri power pop? 9:50am :@David...lucky man. I've seen film footage of that tour and wish I could have been there. I think Forever Changes has just been re-released again. 9:51am :Del Amitri: one of the most underrated bands of our time? You be the judge! 9:53am :Still, the whole HOF was worth it if only for Iggy’s brilliant induction acceptance speech where he paraphrased F Scott Fitzgerald to talk about the ‘Second act of his American life’. Way to go Igmund. 9:53am :Good morning, alla youse. 9:54am :oh yea by the way good morning brainenphiles! 9:54am :Morning all! Great set to accompany the snowstorm we're currently experiencing in Michigan. 9:55am :Part of my do-list this weekend is send in my FMU donation... 9:55am :Ah, I friggin love Herbie Nichol’s music 9:55am :@tadpoles. He did the trumpet break in Alone Again Or as an a capella scat, and I knew I was in the presence of greatness. Possibly time to rebuy Forever Changes again then, thanks for the tip off. 9:59am :Noonan!!! 9:59am :@Corey: Snowstorm wow. It's gonna be in the 70s here in NYC 10:06am :@dan A glimpse of late spring/early summer in NYC sounds nice. Hopefully this is Michigan winter's last gasp 10:12am :Your’e right about Paul and the Raiders.I knew him and he really was a cool guy.Saw Canned Heat many times,once with John Lee. 10:16am :I was debating whether or not to read Rita Coolidges autobio; I used to really like her (with Mad Dogs and Englishmen), but I have absolutely no interest in Kris Kristofferson. 10:17am :Brian Jones does not get enough credit as a great harmonica player. What a talent. 10:18am :also sounds like Brian Jones on backing vocals 10:19am :Interesting how the Stones version of I Wanna Be Your Man predates not only the Beatles version, but Beatlemania. 10:20am :These sounds showed a whole generation of British kids that there was more to life than the shitty post War austerity they’d been handed down, and helped inspire them to create something better. A lesson that could stand repetition today... 10:22am :Vintage Yardbirds. Just been revisiting second incarnation of Jeff Beck Group. That boy sure can play! 10:23am :Great bass also on both these Stones and Yardbird tracks. 10:23am :Brian Jones could play everything 10:23am :The current Yardbirds lineup is now 4/5 American. 10:24am :Oh, and also in re: Canned Heat. Bob, maybe sometime you could play Alan Wilson's "Poor Moon"? My favorite Canned Heat track. 10:27am :Hey Jeff!! 10:39am :David: Now more than ever! I've been watching documentaries on poverty-ridden British kids, and attendant drugs and violence ... I thought America was bad. 10:49am :great show today Bob 10:50am :Spooky Tooth, one of those bands that should have had the worldwide influence of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. A band that spawned the careers of Gary Wright and Foreigner's Mick Jones. 10:51am :Hey Doc!! 10:53am :Tuned in here at Starfish and Coffee in Ohio 10:54am :@Dan....drummer Mike Kellie also went on to further fame in the Only Ones. 10:58am :Another great program today, BobB ! 10:59am :Great program as always. 11:00am :Thanks for Saturday morning Bob. Cheers. 12:27pm :Hey, did you play a spoken word/beat jazz type song called something like "As I Open the Window" by The Charles something Quartet on Saturday 4/14 around 10AM? Loved the song, can't find it anywhere. And it doesn't seem to be in your playlist... 3:49pm :Nevermind, I got it. It was Kenneth Patchen. Surprised I'd never heard him before. His voice has kind of an early Tom Waits vibe. Thanks for turning me on to his stuff. :)
