  Sat. 2/25/12 9:11am Caryn:

Morning, Bob & listeners!
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:14am glenn:

caryn survived frangry's vodka drinking, i see.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:17am Dave in PA:

Are there special pledge phones that make that old-fashioned ringing sound? I don't think you can even buy a mechanical bell phone anymore.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:18am bruce t:

What is your theme music? It takes me back to my childhood.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:20am glenn:

there has to be at least one old style phone ringer app. i still have a dumbphone, so i don't know.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:21am miss thing:

Bob Brainen channeling The Chief Rocker Frankie Crocker? Now that I gotta hear.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:24am glenn:

rihanna and chris should duet on this.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:34am Caryn:

@glenn: hey, it wasn't me drinking it, so no ill effects here :)
Even if the foot massage bit was a bit disturbing...

You can certainly download an "old-fashioned phone" ringtone over here, so there's bound to be a ringtone or app available in the States.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:35am Dave in PA:

I just teleported in my mouse pledge via the interwebs - sorry no cool ringing sound though :-(
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:37am Dave in PA:

Wow that's the perkiest delivery I've ever heard from Bob!
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:38am miss thing:

OMG, he beat the Lipper Average!
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:43am Dave in PA:

Check out a film called 'We Dreamed America'
Quoth Wikipedia: "We Dreamed America is a documentary film, directed by Alex Walker, that delves deep into the dark recesses of the British music scene. Examining the relationship and ongoing exchange between British and American roots music, the film looks at the British fascination with the most American of genres, Country Music. The film tells the stories of six British 'Americana' bands, while giving an insight into how country music fits into the British music industry."
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:44am glenn:

are those new york area d.j.s? i've never heard of them.
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:57am Danne D:

@Dave in PA - the computer actually makes a telephone sound when your web-pledge comes in :) so there was a cool ringing sound when you pledged. And thanks for your generosity :D

Keep it going Bob and Ira! Bob's been on what, 35 years? If you can't pledge much, you can pledge $35 for all that Bob's brought you!
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:57am Danne D:

Time for the dentist *sigh*
  Sat. 2/25/12 9:59am Dave in PA:

How cool is that - thanks Danna D :-)
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:09am Dave in PA:

C'mon internet listeners - let's get this done for Bob and WFMU!
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:09am Jeff:

Wasn't Frankie Crocker on WBLS-FM?
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:10am Dave in PA:

FM was harder to listen to back in the day because the waves were narrower and they kept bunching up on you.
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:16am Robin in the Uk:

keep up the great work bob and loads of thanks for the neil diamond. wow! btw gallagher and Lyle are from bonny scotland. graham lyle just won a grammy for tina turners 'whats love got to do with it.' Go wfmu!
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:17am Jeezy:

R.I.P. Frankie Crocker
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:36am miss thing:

"you can't lose with the stuff i use" is a classic frankie-ism.
frankie died in 2000.
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:36am Dervish:

R.I.P. Frankie...

On the back of my "Airwaves Idols" trading card (WFMU 2004 Marathon) I list my Radio Heroes as: Symphony Sid Torin, Steve Somers and Bob Brainen.
  Sat. 2/25/12 10:48am miss thing:

  Mon. 2/27/12 8:40pm Eugene Bentley:

Hey Bob! Listening to your show the Monday after. One of Manfred Mann spinoff bands with Gallagher & Lyle was Mcguinness Flint.
