Bob, it’s so good to have you back on every Sunday. Listening as I cruise the Vermont countryside
  9:02am Listener Robert:

Don't know if anyones reported it yet, but WMFU Mt. Hope is down. I last had it tuned in at 7 last night.
  9:02am Andrew in Etobicoke:

Good morning Bob and all other Brainiacs.

Please, don’t leave us ever again

Always thought I didn't like Fleetwood Mac. But I like Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

Just looked and that's Green on the harmonica.
  9:07am Rick A.:

Yes, welcome back to Saturday mornings, Bob. I have been listening to some of your past premiums: Feeding Frenzy, Things with Strings, and the Freeform Faves, great tracks that bear repeated listening.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:08am adamdoesit:

Good morning, Brainen brains. Nice to be back here again.
  9:08am Frank In Queens:

Yeah, diggin’ this heavy blues start.

The WFMU listeners are the best. And Bob Brainen rules!

Tis true PGB!
Avatar 9:10am Bob Brainen:

Hey Rick A. Glad you're digging the sounds on those comps. Hey Adam and Frank, welcome. Aw, PGB, thx man, great to hear you on air/stream!
  9:10am Listener Robert:

Ach! WMFU MT. HOPE IS UP! I just had it mis-tuned. Tuner must've slipped when I brought the radio in yesterday evening after barbecuing. Sorry for the false alarm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am YETI BOB:

@BobB: I remember hearing your show as part of the WFMU lineup when I was a kid growing up in NJ (70s/80s). I'm in Chicago now but still listen all the time. It's always great to hear the OG DJs!
  9:11am tfunk:

YETI Bob: Oops, haha. Saturday
Avatar 9:11am Marc Francis:

Pre-covid life I actually never heard the start of this show. I worked as a DJ every Friday night for the last decade. I'd catch you from about 10am on.... I guess that's is a silver lining thingamajig!
Avatar 9:12am Jack:

Chris Youlden had a great voice.
  9:13am Listener Robert:

My mistake does, however, bring up a question: When I have you on stream, how do I report that in the Nielsen log? Do I write in the URL? The Internet domain is different depending on whether it's the pop-up player or one of the AAC or MP3 streams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am melinda:

morning Bob and everyone
Avatar 9:15am Bob Brainen:

PG's FLeetwood Mac were great but I also love the 3 albums made after he left too: Kiln House, Future Games and Bare Trees.
  9:16am Listener Robert:

Mr. Francis, where were you DJing? Has that station switched to remotes from home like WFMU?
  9:16am KWilde:

Morning Bob
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am Handy Haversack:

Good morning, DJ Bob B and all Saturday listeners. Hey, Frank, YB, TDK60.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am YETI BOB:

G'morning Handy! I was thinking of putting my boat in the river today, but it's looking like a chilly day with possible rain so maybe I'll just sit at home and listen to WFMU.
  9:20am Cooh John:

Good morning Bob. Taking me back to my AM radio days in my youth.

Welcome Jack, Marc, tfunk, hope I got eveyrone, hey KWilde.
  9:22am Dennis Diken:

Zally said that Floyd Cramer’s slip note style greatly influenced his guitar playing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Handy Haversack:

YB, I think I'm heading out on the river today. Waiting to see if there are three or four of us coming. Was just reading up on the expanding NYC Ferry service and becoming hugely depressed. A harbor full of mostly empty tourist movers, each heavily subsidized by tax dollars so the price matches the subway, zooming along the river. Sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Corey:

Morning Bob and everyone. Love this version of Last Date!
  9:23am dan:

This Zal Yanovsky track sounds like something that should have been a Top 10 instrumental hit like Classical Gas or Love is Blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am Joe Merklee:

Welcome back, Bob!
This is just what we needed.
Avatar 9:26am Bob Brainen:

Makes sense Dennis, he drew from all over right?
Hey Dan, Corey and Joe. Hey Handy.
Avatar 9:26am TDK60:

Bob, I saw Fleetwood Mac during their Kiln House period.

Morning Handy H. down in Kings County.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Matt Fiveash:

Yeah Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am YETI BOB:

@HH: Hadn't heard about that. Just read a little bit. It's operated by "Hornblower Cruises", not the NYC Dep't of Transportation? But it's subsidized? That's kind of weird.
Avatar 🥁 9:27am WilliamfromDumont:

I love Zal's version of Priscilla Millionaira.
  9:27am David in ATL from NJ:

Love this song, Bob!!
  9:28am davefromtoronto:

1917! the early stuff!
  9:29am Jeff:

Is Doc Rock listening?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am Handy Haversack:

Privatization of all, YB.

I've become very activist with the ferry captains on the marine radio, just telling them exactly where we are and when we'll be transiting their docks and trying not to let them have an excuse to claim they don't know we're there.
Avatar 9:30am Marc Francis:

@ Listener Robert: It was a bar in Montreal. That's kind of a great idea though... keep the DJ safe while they play for the bar? I like it!
Avatar 9:30am Roberto:

Welcome back, Bob! I missed last week's program, so it's all new to me :)

Great to have you back on air, Bob! I really enjoy the music you play

King Gizzard, hell yeah! They canned the 2nd drummer last month.

Now I have to wake up and get out of bed. Greetings from Seattle!

Hey thanks Listener Scott, Hey to Roberto, and the 2 Daves.
Hey Vanya & egould10
  9:42am davefromtoronto:

SO glad bob b's back.
RIP sesame street...
Avatar 9:42am Bob Brainen:

I dunno, did Eric Moore leave King Giz on his own volition? I hope they get another drummer!
  9:45am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Good morning, Bob and all. Hanging with my homies (y'all!) this fine fall day.
  9:45am egould310:

Moore will stay on as band manager. No word on adding a 2nd drummer. I’d gladly move to Australia and fill the role.

nice to hear you hack on the air again Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am juan:

Let me echo all the welcome backs, Bob. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful sounds

Good morning, Bob, listeners.
I’ll repeat myself from last week: I’m glad you’re back, Bob.

One of the most underrated harmonica solos in pop music.

Wendy, hi! Happy Saturday!

Morning, Heidee!
Avatar 9:50am Heidee:

Hi Handy! All well?
  9:51am Listener Robert:

That piano theme reminds me of Porno for Pyros.
Avatar 9:52am Bob Brainen:

I'd visit Australia but can they come here? Thanks Juan, Wendy, Heidee, 1who... Welcome aboard the good ship FMU and the show!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am YETI BOB:

Did they just say "big bass drum" like the fish?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am YETI BOB:

I mean, rhyming with "ass" instead of "ace"
  9:55am Listener Bop Monroe:

greetings from Tannersville.
OMG! that bought me back...!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am YETI BOB:

especially funny since it's an ad for musical instruments. do they even know what the hell they are selling?
Avatar 9:58am Bob Brainen:

Good catch Yeti Bob! Took me a few listens to hear "bass" (rhymes w ass) drum! Funny. Hey Bop!
Avatar 9:59am vanya moscow:

YETI BOB, oh, you just explained me one little thing about pronunciation. I noticed that of course but kinda wondered
  10:11am David in ATL from NJ:

Now we're talking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am YETI BOB:

@Vanya: If you're studying English you might enjoy this classic poem "The Chaos" (by G. Nolst Trenité, a.k.a. "Charivarius"; 1870 - 1946).
English is a mess!
(You can also find videos of people reading this out loud)
  10:12am Crei6hton:

Morning WFMU!
  10:12am David in ATL from NJ:

Bob, is there a chance you will be playing more songs from that album over the next weeks to come?
  10:14am AZ Dave:

You're the best, Bob.

Welcome back Bob, you were missed.
@Jeff good morning. I’ve been listening, but was with the nurse and the aide during the 2nd half hour. I hope you guys are doing alright.

thanks for that gentle correction Wm. gotta watch that auto-suggest (plus 2 fingered impatient typing...)

Hi Bob, great to hear you over the airwaves. Love this Astroturf Noise album, got a vinyl version (heard it on FMU). Brings Chadbourne to mind.

Stretched out; and off to jog through my ciudad while listening to Bob Brainen n WFMU. This is literally one of my favorite things in life.

Great show, Bob. Thank you!
Avatar 10:34am James Douglas:

So happy you are back! I can resume my classes in the Brainen School of Music, learn so much.
  10:35am David in ATL from NJ:

That NRBQ release looks great. Looking at the liner notes, they managed to get almost everyone that has ever been in the band on tracks. Sadly, no songs with Bobby Lloyd Hicks.
Avatar 10:35am Bob Brainen:

Hey hopewithfeathers
YES-no not me. What is it?
Ha, hey James, thanks.
Avatar 10:36am Bob Brainen:

Hey Dave, a great comp. I listened to it and then instantly listened again !

I agree - two hours is too short! I think when I first started listening to Bob, 40 years ago, he was on for three hours. Back to back with the late great Frank O’Toole
  11:00am swampratwiththeblues:

oh wowowowowow i do so love that OLD Fleetwood Mac stuff and that's my absolute favorite album.

Just found out you're back in the sat yesterday. Absolutely the best thing to happen in 2020. Love the Cliff Wade selection. Just checked AmazonMusic and there's a compilation called "Look At Me I've Fallen in a Teapot.
