Hi all! For some Floyd background, might I humbly suggest my 2002 article:

Boss groover has top notch performers today! Pls ask Uncle Floyd if Bowery Electric will be rescheduled. Thanks.

Much awfulness in the World
...there is also, however, Undertones doing Watchband, ferinstance...

I think I saw Daddy Long Legs in Clarksdale MS at the Juke Joint Festival. A couple or three years ago.
Speaking of the Juke Joint Festival.. It coming up next weekend.
  3:35pm Frank Bango:

Decided to paint my kitchen today and spring clean the house. So glad I remembered to tune in!!! Thanks for helping me get shit done!!
  3:37pm indestructible man:

Just told my computer to 'Run DLL'!
Avatar 3:52pm Hoboken Jack:

I do love me some Daddy Long Legs!
  3:52pm Louis:

what was that politically incorrect Ray Charles song? that was interesting
  3:54pm JakeGould:

Oogie!!! Not yet, but still. Also Uncle Floyd announced—and mispronounced—my name on his show during his birthday announcement segment when I was 11 years old. Respect to Floyd Vivino!!!
  3:56pm Victrola Tom:

The Daddy Longlegs set made my drive most enjoyable. Then to get home to Brinsley Schwartz, I just can’t take it!
  4:00pm MFlynn:

Saw Uncle Floyd at the Union Flea Market on the late 70’s!!! Have an autographed picture.
  4:02pm Listener Robert:

"Cloud in My Heart" sounded an awful lot like "Living Underground".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Sailor:

First time listener to this show, really loving these tunes so far. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

@MFlynn I saw Uncle Floyd and the cast at the Union Market in 1982 or 83. I still have the photos & autographs around somewhere....
Avatar 4:05pm On the Yazoo:

Yeah It was the Deep Blues Fest in C'dale, MS. that I saw Daddy Long Legs. That's Chris Johnson's fest. and he's from Wisconsin, and runs/ ran Bayport BBQ. He's an old friend from Blindman's Blues Forum.

Damn but NickLowe make Timeless Writing seem like the most natural thing...
  4:07pm Victrola Tom:

“She was a winner that became the doggies dinner”! Classic!
  4:11pm MFlynn:

Rockpile is the greatest!!!!
  4:14pm andrewb:

the other morning Clay announced, Nick had canceled a show and was hospitalized. I was oddly relieved to here it was "Mick"
  4:16pm andrewb:

I would add that mick and nick are cut from the same cloth
Avatar 4:18pm Fernando P:

Hi Todd! Incredible show today! Ill catch the rest later. Moving to KNBR now.
Avatar 4:18pm Jack:

I saw Brinsley Schwarz in 1970 at the Fillmore East (and Van Morrison and Quicksilver Messenger Service w/ Nicky Hopkins and unfortunately Dino Valenti)
  4:20pm MFlynn:

Haven’t heard Love Starvation yet, great tune!!
Avatar 4:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Whoever came up w/ putting Nick w/ Straitjackets obviously needs to make more decisions for this world...
  4:28pm andrewb:

  4:29pm dano59:

Pretty representative sample of the Nick canon in that set! (He just mentioned the Q -!!)
Avatar 4:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

As Eno said - Studios do too much, not too little: You have to have something to Record 1st...
  4:37pm andrewb:

Rock pile's cover of "me and the boys" was a hit in the UK and pretty much note for note of NRBQ's
  4:41pm Wong:

Saw Rockpile @ Armadillo World Headquarters in 74 or 75. They opened for Van Morrisson. It was his Wavelength tour. He wuz amazing, Rockpile, not so much.
  4:43pm Wong:

Must have been later than 75. Long thyme ago.
  4:44pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Killer show Todd & killer set. Played about my favorite Neil song, definitely my favorite Herbie Hancock. Trememdous
  4:44pm MFlynn:

I don’t know, I liked that “seconds of pleasure” album a lot!
  4:46pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

or maybe the station I’m listening to in Northern New Jersey on 90.1 is something different but as eclectic.Huh?
  4:55pm andrewb:

Nick Lowe is pure gold,
interviewers antidote to Phil rudd
Avatar 4:58pm Michael Shelley:

Only 30%!
  4:58pm MFlynn:

Just a Great Nick interview!!!! Thank you so much Todd
  5:01pm Wong:

  5:04pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Musta had my radio waves crossed. Finally found the dulcet-toned voice I was searching for & expecting. Nick Lowe sounded good too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Aaron Working In Newark:

If I was not going to Nick's Saucer full of secrets the nest week, I would be going to see Mott the Hoople!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Smilty69:

@Hoboken Jack- Holy cow, I remember that article. I was really into The Uncle Floyd Show when I was kid and that article brought back memories.
  5:18pm spodiodi:

  5:20pm MFlynn:

Was it channel 68 out of Newark that the Uncle Floyd show was on?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Smilty69:

@MFlynn - yes, U-68!

Uncle Floyd had the rock n rollers on, I remember Dave Edmunds in the snow!!

I'm going to take this opportunity to mention that a band I was in played on the Uncle Floyd show in 1981! Excerpts are included in this video: www.youtube.com...

Very cool @efd!!!!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm TheNewLexGofer:

I had to hit that link, @efd. Which one were you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm efd:

@TheNewLexGofer that's me on the drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm TheNewLexGofer:

Damn! Were you nervous?
  5:36pm spodiodi:

nice, efd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm efd:

@TheNewLexGofer I'm sure I was a little nervous! It was lip-synced so I couldn't really hit the drums very hard so that was kind of a challenge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm efd:

Great interview Todd!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm TheNewLexGofer:

Thanks for sharing, efd.
