Experiencing some technical difficulties tonight! We're hearing last week's show at the moment. Today's show should begin fairly soon!

@Candy-O' -wow u saw Radio Birdman (of course u did!)
@Andrew-im so dumb about these things--is that vodka ? moonshine?
@Woo--this show is gonna be a little moody- the snow gets me that way
Avatar 7:07pm Terre T:

Yes this supa-psychedelic cut is the Tremeloes !
  7:09pm Johnny Tee:

Loving the show! It's Cold Outside!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Candy-O'67:

@Terre, if it makes ya feel any better, it's even cold in TX right now! It's been getting down into the 30's every night for the past several days and will continue. It is warming up into the 60's tomorrow, though. The nights are cold!
  Swag For Life Member 7:10pm ashley morey:

Hi everyone! Justin came home from work early because of the storm, so we can finally listen together! Stay warm!
  7:11pm CC:

I missed some last week's show anyway...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Andrew Hollywood:

@candy-o I was in TX this time last year and freezing my ass off. I was surprised!

@terre I don't know if google chrome is watching me, so I will not confirm that it is moonshine
  7:13pm CC:

That always makes us happy Candy... 50s and 60s I can handle!!!...:)
  7:13pm Mike Sin:

If we must have snowstorms, I actually like them to happen during winter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Candy-O'67:

@Andrew, yes, we definitely get our share of cold days here in TX and we'll get a snow once in a blue moon. It never sticks long, though, when we do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm courtneynoir:

Since it was in the 50s and 60s here in the middle of the country until about a week ago, I'm convinced that a) global warming is a thing and b) it's gonna be winter here until, like, June now :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, CC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm courtneynoir:

Been in the 10's and 20's and snowy here the past few days like it's supposed to be, dammit.

@Candy O- its cold in TX rn? Wow thats hard to believe
@Aahley-so he must have just walked in to hear the Black Hollies- glad he's home safe
@CC - oh that works out
@MikeSin -so true !
@coutneynoir- Ru actually WISHING for Global Warming --- no worries i'm sorta secretly guilty of that too
  7:25pm CC:

Hey Candy... at least the sun was out today and it got up to the mid-forties without any wind to speak of... we're staring out the front window at all of the pretty lights across the street at the library tonight!!!...sigh!!...:)

@Terre T - oh no, I'm cold-blooded!
  Swag For Life Member 7:27pm ashley morey:

@Terre we've been listening but just had a chance to comment! Funny timing! Justin was really digging the Tremeloes track. He said hearing "Under a Winter's Spell" reminded him how great Wiley's guitar playing is on that track
Avatar 7:27pm Terre T:

@Andrew in Hollywood- hahahaha - there it is - the perfect "tie rando loose comments together" comment ! thumbs up
@Ashley- what? wow thats so cool he picked that up

Package thief - touché
  7:28pm billie:

Hey Terre T: No known connection between the Liberation News Service (the wire service that distributed news stories to underground newspapers in the late '60s) and the one-single-wonder band by that name. They both started around the same time (1967), so my hunch is that the band picked up an underground paper back then, before the LNS became big enough that it would've seemed odd, like naming your group Reuters, dug the name, and there you go...

BTW, enjoying the show on this chilly eve!
Avatar 7:30pm Terre T:

@billie--Alright THANK U - I KNEW someone would know what the deal was with Liberation News Service!
  7:33pm CC:

Kind of like naming your band for The Great Speckled Bird???...:)
Avatar 7:35pm Terre T:

@CC- I don't follow?

I see what you're doing there, and I like it.
Avatar 7:38pm Chris Crash:

Terre.......you gotta do a mail heist for your package
  7:39pm CC:

The Great Speckled Bird was a left-of-center newspaper down in Atlanta Georgia back in the late 60s early 70s...:)
Avatar 7:40pm Terre T:

@ChrisCrash- hahaha! I would but I think the CV police would taser me
Avatar 7:41pm Terre T:

@CC- nice I didn't know that! But weirdly Great Speckled Bird sounds more like a band name than a news service
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Candy-O'67:

Love the Insomniacs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Terre T and all
  7:47pm CC:

Yeah TT you'd be walking down Peachtree and you'd hear the hippies come up and say hash, grass, acid, Great Speckled Bird...:)
Avatar 7:47pm Terre T:

@Candy-O - me too- And of course u know that DJ Mike Sin of the What's Happening?/Ranking Full Stop shows was the drummer for the Insomniacs

Hi Terre. Loving the show. Very late letting you know. Time got away from me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm coelacanth∅:

CC you know though right that the great speckled bird is first a biblical reference? (and a well-known song)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm coelacanth∅:

(i only know about the biblical reference because of the song)
  7:54pm Listener Robert:

Oh. I thought he was singing, "Hot dog in a cold world."
Avatar 7:55pm Terre T:

@Candy-O - u seriously didn't know that? - wow--yes the whole RnS stream is FILLED with cool musicians!!
@Aitch + Johnny Tee--yeah right!?I really dig the SWEEPING PROMISES
@coelacantho- hopefully ur warming up now
@Chris Crash- omg thats funny- no u dont want this snowpocalyppse to be yr fantasy

I am in Chicago and we have had no snow so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Candy-O'67:

Terre, I knew he was in a band with Matt, but not Insomniacs. So cool! After a few episodes of Denny's Den, which I listen to, I found out Dennis is in the Smithereens, who I have loved since high school! I saw them one summer on the beach in Galveston, TX. I think it was somewhere between '83 and '85. I was wasted, but remember having a blast and was so happy I got to see them and on my beach! I hung out there every summer, every day! Good times!!
Avatar 8:03pm Terre T:

@Mike Sin-alright thanks
@CC + coelacantho- I sorta get the Jesus Freak Hippie thing--- The pacifist philosophy ...and
the long hair, beard + sandals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Candy-O'67:

@Terre, I need to ask Dennis if he remembers playing that show!

hi Candy!

well, i started collecting records quite some time ago.
of course, we called them "tablets" back then...and we had to just imagine what the music sounded like...
