It's so strange hearing people in the audience laugh during this heartbreaking song....

@MarcF: You're right, the audience is a bit too drunk to deal with this one, but the little Nick Drake rhythmic thing appeals to me about this version.
  9:38am Mark R:

Very rarely catch your show live--really, really enjoying it, Joe!
Avatar 9:38am Really Lisa:

Hi Joe and everyone. Glad to be tuned in.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:39am ratso:

@TVP, not coincidentally, that was UA's most popular advertising campaign since the 1970's "Fly the Friendly Skies", and haven't struck ad gold since.
  9:40am Zimharry:

Fantastic set, Joe!!
  9:42am Mark R:

Sometimes a new marketing director comes in and throws out a campaign that's working just because he wants to make his mark and sales plummet and he gets fired and usually takes a lot of people with him over the cliff.

Phillippe, all is well behind the fox mask. It’s a holiday here, and I have you guys and Joe McG to keep me company whilst I do some pre-barbecue gardening.
Avatar 9:55am Joe McG:

Whenever I hear "coach" lately I think of "Cheers" because I've been rewatching it.

Morning Joe, surfacers.

Joe - how does Cheers hold up? I used to love the show but am hesitant to watch again

@WoodsOfNH...............McNamara shoulda brought Stapleton in as a defensive replacement.............

@yerfriendpaul...And to think the new generation of fans only know the Red Sox as winners! They are on my "cancel" list this year for trading Mookie

@paul: Holding up! Only 5 episodes into Season 1 but I'm enjoying it very much. Great comic actors on that show.

@Brian - that trade hurt for sure. My nephew’s favorite player. That would’ve been like them trading Yaz when I was a kid. It would’ve crushed me

This season is so majorly effed up in so many ways that I can barely even take joy in the Red Sox being in such disarray.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am Brian in New Orleans:

When I was roadtripping a while back my friend's sister was housesitting for the actor who played Norm on cheers. He lived on Vachon Island in Seattle I used his rowboat and wore his yellow rubber boots..lol

Mr. Rogers would have been perfectly happy to have Tom Waits on his show to talk about writing and playing music, telling stories in lyrics, etc. and he would have been welcome to sing a little (relatively hooker-free material) too.

I was just looking at that! A real sign of the times that it has a song called "I'm Gonna Hijack A Plane To Cuba"

It would be even better if Dylan was the child of Merman and Ernest Borgnine.

Happy Monday all - jumping in to share two high compliments from the GF this morning. While having coffee she asked which DJ this is; then when I told her, she said "Thank god for Joe McGasko." Then a while later, she said from the other room, "You can turn this up if you want."

Heheheh, @brainiac. Next year's swag. FWIW, in response to the sped up ABBA she just said "Joe McGasko, what are you doing?" Maybe that goes on the back...

MUSICIAN (June 1, 1981, interview with Strummer and Robert Fripp): Speaking of evolving musical forms and working in different styles: I got the new Ellen Foley record recently and I noticed that you and Mick wrote most of the tunes, and that you all (the Clash) back her up on the record. I played it for a few people and asked "now, who do you think this is?" Most people thought it was Abba...
STRUMMER: That's a compliment!
FRIPP: Abba are very, very good.
MUSICIAN: I agree, but I'm surprised to hear you both say that. What do you like about them?
STRUMMER: They hardly ever lay a turkey on you. They've kind of hit a rut these days, but they were in there just blammin' 'em onto the charts for ages, which is admirable...also the girls are nice looking!
  11:18am Listener Alexandra:

It was a week; thankfully the town they live in was spared, but it was pretty touch and go for a bit. Now we can all go back to our usual abnormal, LOL. Glad to be on here and calm again!
