Good morning, Bob and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04am Listener John from NJ:

Good morning everybody!
  9:08am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Loving this morning's gospel vibe.
  9:19am WilliamfromDumont:

Morning all. Singer Eddie Jefferson did a great version of FJD as well.
  9:22am Jeff:

Damn, I can’t stay still this morning!
Bob, you’ve got me movin’ and groovin!
Hey, Doc!
Avatar 9:25am fred:

Good morning Bob and listeners
  9:27am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Love this track--FM sounds like they're channeling Santana.
  9:28am Doc Rock:

Hey Jeff! & Everyone!!
  9:40am WilliamfromDumont:

Can't wait for that Gene Clark disc to hit the streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am Hughie Considine:

You could make a pretty lengthy mix of people semi-parodying Dylan. Am I wrong for thinking this is what's happening here vocally?
  9:48am Steuben:

Oh my sweet sweet goodness, do I love the innocence mission something fierce. Thanks Bob!
  9:51am Mike Wolf:

The show's always good, but today feels especially good. All the best notes in all the best places.
  Swag For Life Member 9:54am tadpoles:

Rosine....excellent Bob.
  9:58am David in London:

Great set today.
  10:10am Doc Rock:

Not wrong.
Avatar 10:16am Roberto:

Satie was one of my musical heroes in my younger days. Anyone who would title a piece "Desiccated Embryos" is all right in my book.
  10:20am Stephen Damon:

There's a Place
Oh yeah Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am Hughie Considine:

I tried to find the Rolling Stone review of the first NRBQ LP but only found one for the second, with Carl Perkins. It was utterly scathing -- questioned why bands like NRBQ should even exist and that the best thing about the LP was the cover. The author? The esteemed Peter Guralnick

I think "Lake Shore Drive" might be one of the best songs I've heard all week

If you don't tap your foot to this one, something's wrong.
