Sat. 4/14/12 9:31am annie:
this morning's radio has been sublime, really really great first jeff and now this.. i'm near tears for joy!
Sat. 4/14/12 9:38am non-smoker Jay:

Tuning in now to the legendary Bob Brainen - morning all inc. Annie and Mike East
Sat. 4/14/12 9:55am Mike East:
Caught the second half of the show last night, Billy Jam. Great stuff!
Sat. 4/14/12 9:58am Billy "Smokin' J's" Jam:
thanks Mike East - next week will be doing an extended 2 hour show - filling in for Andy + Frangry in addition to my slot - On another BB related note one of my fave all time albums is McDonald & Giles and fave song on it is "Tomorrow's People" - still have the record and in good condition
Sat. 4/14/12 10:00am annie:
hey mr jam!.. i'll be sure to catch that show!
Sat. 4/14/12 10:04am Mike East:
Excellent! You'll have some room to stretch out
Sat. 4/14/12 10:08am john:
Technodelic is the best YMO album!!!
Sat. 4/14/12 10:08am Mike East:
I believe there's one in Fairfield that participates in record store day on Rt. 46. Sound Exchange by me on Rt. 23 doesn't do anything special. I found a bookstore in Montclair a few weeks ago that has some pretty good vinyl.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:09am Billy "Smokin' J's" Jam:
yes Mike. Hi Annie - hope U R well. HEY - BB not sure of NJ record stores - just NY and Cail ones - but for YMO newbie have them listen to YouTube medley of their work here http://youtu.be/ZlaR6uv0WFY
Sat. 4/14/12 10:12am annie:
hey billy, btw: you recall a few years ago dead prez was going to release an album? my son made a video of 'lights out"? well, they decided to shelve the whole thing, 'tis pity..
Sat. 4/14/12 10:12am john:
i don't think i have heard another 2 song sequence better than "Stairs" leading into "Seoul Music" off YMO's Technodelic.. so perfect
Sat. 4/14/12 10:25am Billy "Smokin' J's" Jam:
at Annie - I do recall that - and that is a pity indeed - oh well
Sat. 4/14/12 10:39am annie:
is it just me, or is the signal cutting out?
Sat. 4/14/12 10:43am Mike East:
Sounds fine over here.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:43am Billy "Smokin' J's" Jam:
Sat. 4/14/12 10:44am annie:
yeah, my winamp kept buffering and timing out.. it seems fine now
Sat. 4/14/12 10:45am Connie T. Empress:
Mine too: went to old fashioned tuner which works great out here in West Orange NJ but still not in Hoboken
Sat. 4/14/12 10:45am green dragoon:
I am in Morris County and the listening on my clock radio. loud and clear
Sat. 4/14/12 10:46am green dragoon:
kinda is good music for clock radio too
Sat. 4/14/12 10:48am paul in FL:
I listen to M. Shelley on the iphone sometimes. Just like hearing all those old songs on a transistor radio again.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:48am Mike East:
I've had the same clock radio for about 20 years. My first FM radio/tape player.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:49am green dragoon:
mine is a five dollar garage sale job ... got a couple back ups too
Sat. 4/14/12 10:49am Mike East:
Great show this morning, Bob. You've made the morning all but disappear.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:50am annie:
i've got a 40-year-old magnavox with the flipper numbers, still works like a charm...
Sat. 4/14/12 10:50am Philo Gristle:
Great set coming in loud and clear through a streaming radio with a clock!
Sat. 4/14/12 10:52am green dragoon:
picked up a probably 40 year Sony transitor radio at a recent garage sale ... works perfectly ... ludite or not it works for me
Sat. 4/14/12 10:53am kat330:
Yes, echoing what Annie wrote way up above, the Jeffrey Davison sets followed by Brainen's have been a morning's aural delight. And then next, Lowe and behold! Thanks WFMU. :)
Sat. 4/14/12 10:53am Mike East:
awesome, annie. Like Groundhog Day. I remember being amazed at my grandmother's when I was a kid.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:54am annie:
omg, what a find, GD. amazing technology for its time, too mike..
Sat. 4/14/12 10:55am green dragoon:
Lud·dite /ˈlʌdaɪt/ Show Spelled[luhd-ahyt] Show IPA
a member of any of various bands of workers in England (1811–16) organized to destroy manufacturing machinery, under the belief that its use diminished employment.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:56am Mike East:
Ok, time to mow the lawn. Been a pleasure hanging with you folks this morning.
Sat. 4/14/12 10:56am Philo Gristle:
Attack of the Giant Ants!
Sat. 4/14/12 10:58am Philo Gristle:
Someone oughta mix this with Van Morrison vox.
Sat. 4/14/12 11:04am green dragoon:
this is like 1978 in my uncle Dodge Duster in dead stop traffic on the Garden State Parkway going 'down the shore'
Mon. 4/16/12 8:51pm Eugene Bentley:
Hey Bob! Prelude's version of N. Young's 'After the Goldrush' was the first ever version I ever heard of this song. They were kind of a fairport Convention-ish group. The US version of their debut album didn't do them justice. I'll have to listen to Young's version again--I thought he was saying 1917 also.
Mon. 4/16/12 8:58pm Eugene Bentley:
It was Roy Clark with Buck Owens on Hee Haw.
Tue. 4/17/12 5:55pm Bix Gomez:
Ahh, Vintage Vinyl! Now that makes me homesick for NJ. Anyone remember Platter Puss?
