Hey, Joe! Good morning! Welcome to Sunday!
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:07am Joe:

Wow, Sue! I can't believe you are following me into the early night! It's so cool!
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:10am Sue:

Yeah, man, you know it. How's your night going so far?
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:10am R!SKY:

  Sun. 10/18/09 3:14am Joe:

Hey, R!sky, I'm doin' it, I swear! Sue, I'm feeling pretty good for my first nighttime show in a long time. How are you feeling?
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:18am Sue:

I'm feeling alright. Glad to hear your tunes, man :)
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:20am Joe:

Thanks, Sue! Really happy to be here playin' 'em for you!
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:31am Nick the Bard:

The station didn't blow up or anything did it? (Looks like 91.1 is off the air right now, for at least tlast, 10-15 minutes or so)
  Sun. 10/18/09 3:34am Joe:

Hey, guys--Sorry for the extended loungey affair, but the FM signal seems to be down and we're trying to figure out the problem. Hang in there!
  Sun. 10/18/09 4:26am Héctor:

Morning, Joe!
  Sun. 10/18/09 4:26am osvi:

Liz Berg is soooo cute!
  Sun. 10/18/09 4:28am Joe:

Hey, Hector! Hey Osvi! Liz is not only adorable, she sings the hell out of that song! I now prefer it to the original.
  Sun. 10/18/09 5:37am DV Bay State:

I think I could even stomach drinking in a strip joint if Tony Joe White was carrying-on like this. Yes... deep funk and grindin' grannies.
  Sun. 10/18/09 5:48am Joe:

I love Tony Joe. The Roy Head was written by him, too.
  Sun. 10/18/09 5:55am DV Bay State:

That Stone Country track is a contender for weirdest bass line ever.
  Sun. 10/18/09 10:55am Mike Sin:

Another great "single file" segment! I must ask where/when you scored the Blue Ash 45?!
  Sun. 10/18/09 11:12am Joe M.:

Hey, Mike! Glad you liked it. Don't cry, but I found a promo copy for 50 cents in a stack of DJ promos some guy was selling at the Wayne record show last Saturday. It's minty fresh! Hope it sounded as good as it looks.
