Thank you. I showed up just in time for Robyn Hitchcock. I love him! He played in my town a few years ago and I got him to record a promo for my radio show. I bribed him with cheese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Gina Bacon:

He does love his cheese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Gina Bacon:

He's a Nashvillian!

Good evening Gina, the sun has nearly set over the river, and the Xmas lights on a rooftop garden a block away are lighting what's left of the blue sky. Glad to be here with you all!!
Avatar 5:09pm vanhooserd:

A friend of mine claims he was on the road in England in the early 80s with Robyn & The Soft Boys. I would love to know if Robyn remembers.

prguitar!! I'm so glad you're here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Gina Bacon:

It's possible, vanhooserd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Gina Bacon:

Maybe I can get him to call in sometime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Oh right! He does live in Nashville these days. Do you see him in the grocery store (at least pre-pandemic)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Gina Bacon:

I cat sit for them! (:

We have had a warning to keep chickens indoors just now, some bird flu warning. Think it applies more to commercial places than seven old gals taking it easy in a garden..

That's ok, Brian. If I score some Vacherin for personal use, I'll report back.

Good evening, Sir Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Julie P.:

"Saved their asses, kept their drinks in their glasses" Great line!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Brian in UK:

Stuffy tells it how he sees it, puts me in mind of John Murry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Julie P.:

And Gina, one good thing about a virtual audience is how much it expands your reach. People can "attend" from all over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm coelacanth∅:

^that's a great line...the following (i think) line too "didn't mess up their sunday clothes for the first, the last time in their lives"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Gina Bacon:

True, Julie!
Avatar 5:54pm vanhooserd:

We all listen to the words except Bob.

vanhooserd - LOL!

he's busy listening for that banjo he loves
  5:56pm bigplanetnoise:

I listen. I just don’t pay attention.

It’s why I never did well with Grandpa Jones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Gina Bacon:

Hahahaha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Gina Bacon:

It's my job to listen to the words!
  5:58pm Andrea Stray:

I'm getting dressed and putting on my cool boots to to see Stuffy's streaming show from the 5 Spot tonight. Looking forward to it.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Gina Bacon:

Andrea! So glad you're here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Julie P.:

If no one listened to the words everybody would just be playing instrumentals!
  5:59pm Andrea Stray:

I finally got to listen in real time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Julie P.:

Whew, this is BLISTERING!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Gina Bacon:

True, Julie! Something for everybody! (:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Brian in UK:

Might be worth getting a copy over to these folks for review. The audience for quality acts over here might surprise you. I know, we are in the thrall of madness but we have been on this swinging sphere for even longer than Bob had been touring so there is time.

Hi Gina! Just crossed over from the main stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Gina Bacon:

Hey KWilde!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Julie P.:

"Sweet Krazy" sounds like a song that you play either at the end of the last set or for the encore. Wind them up and leave them hollering for more!
Avatar 6:04pm vanhooserd:

So broke he can't pay attention. Hahahaha....I'm breakin' myself up...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Gina Bacon:

See? Lyrics! Hahaha

vanhooserd - he's so broke he can't even give you the time.
Avatar 6:06pm vanhooserd:

I've only heard Bob play instrumentals. Never his golden pipes.

It's been a pleasure listening to Stuffy's music! Great conversation too! The man has tremendous insight, with a good measure of humor!! Thanks Gina and Stuffy!!!

It's ok...we think alike! She did a beautiful version.

Eyes wide shut. Time to collapse in a heap. When Stuffy lays it down, it stays there.
Stay safe everyone.

That was lovely. So poignant and hearfelt.

Great Lesson Russell cover! (Not one I hear attempted much)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm doctorjazz:

,*Leon Russell
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Gina Bacon:

This is a great local band...sort of a laid back Grateful Dead vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Julie P.:

I love "Song For You". Got to see Leon play it live and hear him give the backstory on it. Not a dry eye in the house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Julie P.:

This is an excellent version.
Avatar 6:22pm northguineahills:

Dug them Gina!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Gina Bacon:

Oh wow, Julie. How lucky! I don't know the backstory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Gina Bacon:

I've played some of their new album...it's really good! cordovas.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm doctorjazz:

Jealous, Julie, great you saw Russell!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Gina Bacon:

I've been singing Bandcamp's praises lately. Their Bandcamp Fridays (they take no fees!) have really helped a lot of artists I know through this pandemic.
Avatar 6:33pm Snayle:

Hay Gina! Jools! BPN ! & Matinee Idyls !!! Caught the great Stuffy in the car, he is just awesome ! From tears to kick ass beers ! just landed to that wonderful Cordovas version of Leon !! Jools, wow you saw Leon ! <3

Ahhh, been recommending this album to friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Gina Bacon:

It's stunning, isn't it, doctorjazz?
Avatar 6:35pm Snayle:

Me too ! Thanks for the great car tunes !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Julie P.:

Gina, it wasn't too long before he passed away. A friend of mine had an extra ticket and we were in the first row to boot. My memory is fuzzy on the backstory details, but he spoke of a woman he was living with at the time, and how their relationship ultimately ended and inspired the song. It was like a wistful reminiscence of a time, told without bitterness and with love. I'm tearing up again just thinking about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Gina Bacon:

Emma was my guest early on in the pandemic. I think I was the first to play something...boy did it take off!
  6:36pm Tom K.:

Attention Gina: I'm going to need to sign off, although this music is fantastic! If you can e-mail me the time/date of this rebroadcast, I'd greatly appreciate it. Have a great evening everyone.
