re: Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep. Wow! I was just this very second reading about this song on Nat Roe's blog post; I'd never heard of it.
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:20am RedCap:

BB in da hizouse!
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:23am SmokinJ:

Mornin' folks!
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:31am Richard H:

Re.: "Mira Mira" I've known this song forever, as it appeared on an aircheck tape of Mad Daddy Meyers from the early '60s, but never knew who it was. Thanks, Bob!
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:33am Richard H:

When's the 'great first albums' show scheduled?
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:52am SmokinJ:

Looking at You=1968
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:54am Jack:

Saw the MC5 in '69; "Looking at You" was a highlight I'll never forget;simply amazing!
  Sat. 10/23/10 9:56am SmokinJ:

That they were Jack..
  Sat. 10/23/10 10:00am Jack:

They really were, SmokinJ! And also "This Is A Man's World". And that was all after Iggy & The Stooges. My first concert - I was 16.
  Sat. 10/23/10 10:03am SmokinJ:

I saw them and met them in 69 at a rock festival I was working at. I was 17. Nothing like Purple Owsley to enhance a memory :)
  Sat. 10/23/10 10:03am Mike Sin:

Bob Brainen has some cool 45s! I always thought the MC5's version of "Looking at You" cut in the '60s sounded more like a '70s track, while their 1970 version sounded much more '60s-ish... if any of that makes any sense.
  Sat. 10/23/10 10:08am Jack:

Mike: that 1970 studio version of "Looking at You" is goosebumpy stuff, although overall the album (unfortunately) sound funny? flat? A lot of great songs though...
  Sat. 10/23/10 10:13am Peter K.:

I always thought "Come On-a My House," not "This Ole House," was the song Rosemary Clooney didn't want to record. That's the way the story is usually told, anyway. Or do I have it wrong? (P.S.: Great show, as always.)

Reading the playlist while listening to Music for Reading.

Hey Bob, did you know there's a video of Norma Tanega doing "Walkin' My Cat Named Dog"?
