Awrsome way to open the show! Hello Joe B!
Avatar 12:05pm editor_b:

I still remember the first time I heard this song. Surprisingly late in life. I had to be in my 40s. I mean, I was born in 1967, so we're talking late. Some DJ on WTUL started playing it every week. I was utterly enthralled. Still am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm steveo:

now is the proper time to turn it up
Avatar 12:05pm editor_b:

Also, this song is the premiere example of what I call the "triple eponym." Band, song, album, all the same name.

I ain't felt this good for an hour.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:11pm karlward:

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that Guided By Voices has an eponymous song. It would be pretty rad if it were the only one-off 70s metal song in the GBV catalog too. But I guess that would be asking too much.
Avatar 12:12pm Wallis...:

Up next: Bad Company or Living In a Box
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:12pm JG:

This makes more sense but always liked the Hawkwind version more

Then again, if Robert Pollard is listening right now, he will have the GBV eponymous song written and recorded before this mic break is over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Tome:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:13pm chris_in_space:

@karlward no Guided by Voices eponymous song yet, but if Pollard is listening, I'm sure he could whip something up before show's end.

chris_in_space we are of one mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Paulie B:

@McGroovey it's New Wave of British Heavy Metal!

@Mike Sin Hard to say. From my experience, most Madien fans heard Dickinson first and his vocals are an iconic part of their sound. But those early albums are considered classics as well.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi, Joe! Today's question: What was the first band/song are the same? And it has to be the exact band name, so no "Theme From The Monkees" — my top-of-the-head guess is "October Country" from 1967.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:15pm medson:

Nice and easy back announcing today Joe B. You deserve that.

Hey, Joe, if you run out of songs that fit the theme, do you take bday requests (even if two days early?)? Would dig dedicating Drivin' 'n' Cryin's "Honeysuckle Blue" to days gone by!

But also digging the theme so much so far that I feel leery of even making the request!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joe B: I know EXACTLY who you're referring to! Thanks for reminding me that solo acts count. But I still think October Country for bands.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Paulie B:

@Gaylord I have no clue who Joe was talking about but I'm very curious to find out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Gaylord Fields:

I believe Joe said band and song must match exactly, which disqualifies both Monkees and PIL.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:20pm medson:

Would Hey Hey We’re The Gories count?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm David (in London):

Yo, Mariano.

Maybe they didn't actually have a song called "Dead Boys". But they had a song called "I Need Lunch", which is true.

Hey Joe and all! Great theme today. The Living End had me thinking there must also be many band names from influential album or song titles, in this case Husker Du.

I fondly remember Paul Cavanaugh and his bizarre sidekick Morbid. I wondered if they were fired by the station.

This Good, The Bad and The Queen was really good. I never checked them out because I thought it would be a yawner. What do I know?

NO

Joe - you need to be in Hollywood! You set the scene perfectly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm chris:

hey, Joe and folks. i'd vote no bad company as well... unless there are several crappy eponymous songs, to make a set of ugh. :) great show, Joe!
Avatar 2:40pm Joe B:

sorry for technical snafu. thanks to michele for handling it!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:40pm efd:

Bad Company would be a big improvement over Blackfield!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:40pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Bad Company please! Don't listen to the haters. Bad Company until the day I'm a shooting star in my rock'n'roll fantasy.

I bet Michele wants to hear Bad Company.

there's so many good songs left unplayed no need to go to the bad company well!

@Carmichael I am SO BUMMED that that Spinal Tap event is on a Wednesday! I'd love to see it!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:44pm McGroovey:

You could do a whole hour of Focus songs with *focus" in the title. I'm probably the only person on here with a complete Focus collection, so that would work for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm northguineahills:

Godz!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Rich in Bay Ridge:

Are we just running out the clock on Bad Company?
  Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Joe R.:

@mcgroovey please tell me that Focus has a number called "Crocus Locus" in their repertoire

Hell yeah Titus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Krys O.:

It's been a real treat, Joe B! Even the stuff deemed "questionable" is fun. Here at work Z-100 is on in the production department right outside my office door and it's maddening hearing the same 5 or 6 songs played ad nauseum throughout the day. You have my vote for Bad Company.

I had to go out for a few minutes. Did I miss Bad Company by Bad Company?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:46pm efd:

maybe Jim Price will play "Bad Company" on his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Gaylord Fields:

Don't tell me that Bo Diddley is the only solo artist to title a song after himself! That is shocking in so many ways.

what no Public Image? great show JoeB- jess saying ain’t bumming

@efd Central Jersey forever!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Mike From Brooklyn:

Great show Joe! Got me thinking about a whole bunch of bands I haven't listened to in a long time, trying to remember if any of their songs were self titled. I have to listen to them after your show. Now I'll never get any work done. Thanks a lot! (Said with fake sarcasm.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:48pm McGroovey:

@Joe R
Sorry. I cannot tell you that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:48pm efd:

@sufferwords I don't think "Public Image" by Public Image Ltd. qualifies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@sufferwords: Joe disqualified "Public Image" because the band's name is Public Image Ltd — it has to be the exact name in both columns of the playlist.
Avatar 2:48pm Hubig Pie:

Public Image was disqualified
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Krys O.:

Wow! Another one pulled out from the memory banks.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:50pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Gaylord - I was wondering the same thing. Kenny Rogers by Kenny Rogers or David Lee Roth by David Lee Roth?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Handy Haversack:

What a great show, Joe! Top to bottom! And thanks for the D'n'C!

Be well, all.

Re: "Bad Company":
In my teenagerhood, my friend had 10 albums, and that was one of them, so I can play that song end-to-end in my head any time.

Hi Joe! The Way Outs. Way out... that's where the fun is.
  2:53pm Danny in Pughkeepsie:

Great show Joe!!!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm McGroovey:

I can also play "Public Image" in my head because I had the 7" in college and played it frequently, way too loud, whenever the neighbors were being to loud and annoying, which was frequent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm steveo:

fun show, thanks!
Avatar 2:53pm Frank Zaatar:

I wouldn't be surprised if Tiny Tim had sung a song called Tiny Tim sometime in his life. But I doubt he sang a song called Herbert Khaury.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm paddy in matawan:

must be nice to only have to announce the self titleds
Avatar 2:53pm PKNY:

Jim Dandy from Black Oak Arkansas liked to reference himself in the 3rd person and did a song called "Jim Dandy", but obviously wouldn't count here.
  2:53pm Danny in Poughkeepsie:

nice typo

Outstanding show, Joe! Brilliant concept, brilliant execution.

a fitting bookend with the Black Sabbath intro
  2:55pm Andres:

Greatly entertaining and equally distracting theme, productivity was at a low but totally worth it! Great show, Joe, thank you!!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Handy Haversack:

I mean, any BÖC is good BÖC!

And I will defend /Imaginos/ against all comers! Who's gonna tell BÖC they can't have a concept album?!

Great show. what was the final count on triples?
  Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Joe R.:

@gaylord you would think Jerry Lee Lewis would have done it since he's certainly not shy about name checking himself (though maybe he wouldn't have included his last name)
  2:55pm David in London:

Thanks Joe, great show today. Lots of fun.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:55pm norske jersey boy:

Super fun show Joe B!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm tim from champaign (now washington):

You big dummies! We could have had Bad Company instead of this jazz brunch version of Blue Oyster Cult.

Super great show today, Joe! The Champ is still The Champ!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Mike From Brooklyn:

That was great Joe! A whole 3 hours and still managed to avoid playing Bad Company.
Thanks for a really fun show. Thanks also Michele, and the rest of the Skeleton Crew. Have a great afternoon everybody.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:57pm paddy in matawan:

i'm sorry to report that I like this.... sorta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Gaylord Fields:

Joe, I'm impressed that you didn't dip into all those tribute bands named after songs by the group they're imitating.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:57pm mariano:

Take care, David.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Handy Haversack:

So are all my neighbors, Morgan -- not that they had a choice!

Ladies and Gentleman...On your feet or on your knees...The Amazing etc etc
  2:57pm HT in WT:

Wow haven’t heard this mess before but it gives you another theme show: songs with wildly different alternate versions, like this.
Avatar 2:58pm Joe B:

i got three minutes gaylord!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm McGroovey:

I guess an obvious follow-up would be one artist doing an original song that's named for another artist (ex: The Replacements/Alex Chilton. But Teenage Fanclub/Neil Jung??)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Woo:

I'll ask The Bunny to play Bad Company. Of course, he won't.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm radioronan:

Thanks Joe.fun show..happy belated bday. Thanks skeleton crew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

@JoeB Have you heard any of the new BOC?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm norske jersey boy:

Brillejesus triple ftw! JK - it's not a very good song. But hey, talent = boring. But only about 1:15. Can fit.
Avatar 2:59pm Frank Zaatar:

And Shonen Knife did a song called Blue Oyster Cult. Coincidence?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Rich in Bay Ridge:

Also found a way to disqualify Wilco
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:00pm McGroovey:

But one must be sure to about the bad tribute songs, which is the issue Gaylord is getting at.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Threemoons:

By the way, I am loving the $%$!# out of this set. SO much fun~
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:00pm McGroovey:
