  3:17pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

not much a tiny little space heater and the stove can do.
  3:18pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

  3:20pm John from Florham park:

@Philip that stinks do you have a portable space heater or going to get one?
Avatar 3:20pm βrian:

We're up to 23°F now, which is way better than yesterday's 5°F.

...apparently some NYC real estate fraud became leader of the free world in late stage capitalism somehow - & they're putting on some puppet show that they expect some completely different result from people...our tax dollars @ work...

I think that's a martini, gin I hope.

Seriously ! - all I ever heard was Elephant'sMemory was a 1970s NYC garage band or something - but this sounds like Nilsson enthusiasts...

Seems to me, by the time you've sorted out whether or not you are going to Funkytown, it'll be closed.

lot of very angry tennants in my building.

Hello, Irwin and all. Looks like I missed a great start to the show...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loogit the range of this Set - every track great - & it worx together.
I suggest Irwin consider doing this consistently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Irwin...that Grimly Fiendish (Spic 'N' Span Mix) rings a bell. Is it possible I used to have that on a blue ten inch...like way back in the day, or is it a newer mix? I know...Google it...
  4:20pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

"super" is never here unless your late with the rent. i called 311 6 times already to report no heat or hot water in their NYCHA building

Nice slide guitar work. I don't hate this, not at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Mr. Pumpy:

Ahhh...it was actually a 10" of 'Anything' It says GRIMX5 on the cover...hence my confusion. I'll have to dig that out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Damned kinda fell between the Punk & Goth Markets - tho' pioneers of both ! Under-recognized in the broad scene, methinks... Henry Rollins @ least played the whole 'Black Album' on his KCRW music program...

my favorite Hatchie song, nice pick
Avatar 5:02pm coelacanth∅))):

one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs; and one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs
  5:02pm Larry O:

Are you playing multi syllabic jazz?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting to hear Gil w/out Miles: showcases his relevance - & Miles' absence also how he was the perfect foil
...Bob & Cash by contrast a most charming & fascinating mutual admiration - but styles mesh a little awkwardly...not that they got down w/ a Producer together or anything...
Avatar 5:05pm coelacanth∅))):

wow they really changed it
Avatar 5:06pm Irwin:

Hello, Larry O. You still have those old radio mags? Want 'em.
Avatar 5:07pm coelacanth∅))):

RR have you heard the finished version?
i ask because i always loved how well the 2 meshed!
Avatar 5:08pm coelacanth∅))):

(but i would figure on you having heard it)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...OK - depends what you mean...it's two unpretentious friends...I think Bob Johnston talks about how he kicked the Corporates outta the Studio
...Oh man - this Neil. Gawd I love this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Carmichael:

Is this produced by Jim Messtills?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I mean - Johnny was a Memphis Rawkabilly pillhead - wonderfully open-minded...

oh yeah. wasn't Dylan a guest on his very first episode of JR's variety show?
Avatar 5:13pm coelacanth∅))):

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Don't know which one.
Cash in 'Don't Look Back' ? Singing Hank w/ Bob. Bob saying Cash was like a religious figure to him...Right ?
Avatar 5:17pm coelacanth∅))):

i may be wrong about it being the first episode. i think you're right about Dylan's looking up to Cash though
Avatar 5:19pm coelacanth∅))):

shit, i see Cash's first episode: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Doug Kershaw! that guy was awesome!
...i saw that episode too but i really don't remember it! Dylan, vaguely...

Van's Astral Weeks features Richard Davis throughout, Irwin.
Avatar 5:39pm coelacanth∅))):

not super into Van but i really like the moondance album, and much of tupelo honey. also his collaboration with John Lee Hooker on i cover the waterfront is excellent. (in my opinion)
  5:39pm berbo:

You say 'ringworm', I say 'France".
  5:40pm ignatatus666:

I always found Van to be boring
He definitely appeals to drunk bikers depressed over a fallen brother or an upcoming sentence
Avatar 5:42pm Irwin:

I just never "got" Van. Ditto Tom Petty. Neither was impoverished by my lack of support.
Avatar 5:42pm Irwin:

Jeff Lynne I GET.
Avatar 5:43pm coelacanth∅))):

...actually now i'm looking at the track listing and i think the title track might be the only song i like on tupelo honey!
oh well.
  5:43pm spodiodi:

i get Paul Lynde
Avatar 5:44pm coelacanth∅))):

i get pall mall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wull - he's more to do w/ Jazzes as he is apt to emphasize.
& perhaps lie Sinatra - you gotta get the right album / period to get the best... My unsolicited $ 0.02. 'Astral Weeks' par example looks unimpeachable from my house...Oh - & Them is great Punx.
Avatar 5:45pm coelacanth∅))):

i do like them. all of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Jeff Lynne is great George Martin on MDMA ... if that's what the track wants. A distinctive Producer.
