Spode! Ira, Georgia, G, Robert, helllllooooohhhh
  Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Ira:

I love the part coming up where Michael Bloomfield hits some non-chord chord which is clearly his way of telling Al Kooper to knock it off.
  9:10pm JC:

is this thing on?

  9:33pm Adam:

I feel badly about saying that mom was a challenge. Not that she wasn't, but she persevered. She showed some game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Spinning Giant:

Ira --> that transition: Conga Kings<--->Blakey was so buttery I didn't even realize the song had changed --- of course, I am still reeling from the effects of Krull's noodleslap...
  9:34pm ?:

this 'Oscalypso' piece is fantastic!!!
  Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Ira:

No sweat, Adam. The geese won't tell.
  Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Ira:

Next segue will be much less buttery. Count on it!

Nothing could go wrong with that plan.

Hi, Ira! So glad to hear you jump through that FCC loophole and legally say "Schitt's Creek" over the air.
  Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Ira:

Gaylord, it helps when you don't realize what you're doing, which is pretty much my go-to move.
Avatar 10:39pm Jason From Baker Street:

Inky Spheres. Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Gaylord Fields:

Fair enough, Ira. As for the birthday boy, every few years I reread the columns Roger Angell wrote during the Miracle Mets' unlikely 1969 World Series run and just marvel at a master of the form.

@toddophonic. NO it doesn’t!

Hi, Jack. You were listening to Outlandos d'Amour by The Police? Roxanne!

Hey Hoboken Jack! Another true Gent joins the room.

I think Lola Heatherton is a joke at the expense of Joey Falana.
Avatar 10:48pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Georgia: Thanks for seconding my notion!
  10:50pm Georgia:

@todd you beat me to it. Small faces are my favorite and that’s my favorite song!
  10:51pm tom:

@ira Have you seen catherine o'hara in a 90's episode of outer limits where she accidentally shoots herself in forehead and then probes th hole with a pencil?
  Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Ira:

@Tom: Cancelling the last hour of tonight's program to search for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm mariano:

tom: I haven't seen that but it reminds me of a Stephen King short story though about a woman who does that then the 3D Jesus on top of her TV starts talking to her, telling her to do things.
  10:53pm Georgia:

I love my mind eye but maybe this song by adma? Is my new favorite song!
Avatar 10:55pm Hoboken Jack:

Hello Ira, Georgia, Scott, TOPT, Joe, Gaylord, all! HP Ken, eh I don't want to talk about it, but more like Regatta d Shooting Blanks.
  Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Ira:

@Hoboken Jack: In a failed Cheech & Chong routine waiting to happen, Scott's not here. If you're hearing this, then Matt is ably filling his sneakers.
  10:59pm tom:

@ira just checked. its on youtube. its called revelations of becka paulson or something like that
  11:00pm John L:

I found it on Daily Motion. Not sure if this link is going to work...https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5jlzg9

TEST w/ RC is incredible! Never heard this one. Great show Ira! Wait what?! Where is the TEST song going...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Ike:
