  Sun. 11/27/11 12:24am T-Zero:

I should have said *early* teens. Memory gets kind of foggy that far back lol
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:26am T-Zero:

Actually, I don't remember the episodes so much as Jack Webb's voice.
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:28am Joe D.:

this fight section sounds like a Wutang sample.
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:29am Joe McG:

I think Jack Webb was the original Wu Tang.
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:32am Joe D.:

"Well, m'am, tracking down a suspect is like a swordfight. You need to think first, before you move."
"Ain't a damn thing changed, m'am. In this city, you've got to protect your neck"

baaaah bahm bahm BUM
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:33am Joe McG:

From gas chamber to 36 chambers....

  Sun. 11/27/11 12:37am ami ad:

  Sun. 11/27/11 12:38am Joe McG:

Hey, Michele! All the same to you! Thanks for checking in, great to know you're out there. See you next week, I hope!
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:45am Minnesota Jeff:

Did people call in and complain? I don't see any complaints on the comments board. I liked it, myself.
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:52am Joe McG:

Thanks, Jeff--just one complaint!
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:52am Chop Scott:

Yes Joe, I am here as ever! Thankfully for you my friend!
  Sun. 11/27/11 12:54am Joe McG:

Ha ha! Hey, Chop Scott! Thanks for droppin' by.
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:02am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe! I missed a whole bunch of Dragnet - but I look forward to that on the Archives! And The Shadow, I may try to catch that live next week!

As for "Romantic Reflections by Jack Webb", is that the same album with his spoken-word "Try A Little Tenderness"? :)
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:06am Joe McG:

That's the one, Matt--I meant to play that, actually, but miscued. Don't tell anybody.
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

It's all good with me Joe!
Quite the old-timey show tonight, music of many genres and radio drama. Just "In The Mood" tonight?
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:10am Joe McG:

I guess so, Matt. Soon to change direction!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:14am Matt from Springfield:

Change of direction and random 45s--Freeform prevails again!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

Left Banke, always appreciated.
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:23am Joe McG:

And always adored!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:34am Chop Scott:

Boom Boom!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:35am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 11/27/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

There's a Massachusetts Avenue in DC. I think I've seen cats in tophats there, too.

Hey Scott, enjoyed the Chop Shop set on BT's show!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

Convicted by Judge Cupid??! OH LAWD HAVE MERCY indeed!!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:42am Matt from Springfield:

Danepop!!! Or Norpop!!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:45am Joe McG:

You guessed it, Matt! Matt guessed Mette.
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

Dane, or Norway?
Love this Dictators one!
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:51am Joe McG:

  Sun. 11/27/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Sammi Smith, a wonderful syrupy voice of country. Is this a Kristofferson comp?
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:57am ami ad:

Good nights Joe and all,thanks for the sweet tunes.
  Sun. 11/27/11 1:57am Joe McG:

@Matt: No, it's by someone named John Virgin. G'night, Ami Ad!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:00am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe. And Vince Guaraldi, I was thinking of him when I first heard the opening of that song. It helped that I just saw the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special on Thursday!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:08am Matt from Springfield:

LOL Loudon!!! Many a couple's laments over the stressful Thanksgiving weekend I'm sure!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:10am Joe McG:

Should I play the most depressing holiday song ever, "Thanksgiving"?
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:14am Matt from Springfield:

Never heard "Thanksgiving", go for it!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:18am Joe McG:

You asked for it!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:19am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks! The holiday calls for it.
In fact almost could qualify as "country" instead of "folk"...
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:29am Matt from Springfield:

Gorgeous Gram Parsons "Love Hurts"! And do I hear Emmylou singing with him?
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:30am Minnesota Jeff:

I believe this is actually Ruth Buzzie singing with him - she had a beautiful singing voice.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:30am Joe McG:

You do!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:32am Erika:

what is this ground hog day?
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

Yes it's true! Beautiful.
Another gift of the now-departed WLIR live sets, apparently!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:33am Joe McG:

I wish it were, Erika! I want to build a snowman with Andie McDowell.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:34am Matt from Springfield:

@Erika: With Joe a few songs in the third hour is nothing to sweat. When he starts playing "Satisfaction" from the very FIRST song, then it's time to panic! :)
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:34am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: That's another perk of Groundhog Day!

We all smelled this comin'---Dazed & Confused teens, slow dance with your girl in the gym now!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:35am Erika:

@ Matt hahahaha!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:35am Joe McG:

@Matt: I have to do another Joy in Repetition show soon! I love doing this.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:44am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe. Jim Capaldi killed Loves Hurts.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:46am Brian in UK:

No Joe KILLED it. Sang it up tempo.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:46am Matt from Springfield:

Well, hurry up! Get Jim Capaldi! I don't know who he is BUT "LOVE HURTS"! You must procure!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:47am Matt from Springfield:

Not a huge 10cc fan, but I can always go for "I'm Not In Love".
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:48am Matt from Springfield:

Go for you Daniel!!
You didn't leave Russia only to face that kind of crap!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:48am Brian in UK:

Jim Capaldi was Traffics drummer.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

Oh wow, didn't know Traffic's drummer had solo albums.
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:51am Brian in UK:

Whale Meat Gain. Get it?
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:54am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: Yes! I heard that in Dr. Strangelove:
(We'll Meet Again)
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Thought that title looked familiar! Music IS Freedom! Embrace it!
  Sun. 11/27/11 2:59am Matt from Springfield:

Fantastic show Joe! Hope everyone had as much fun as me!
