Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/11/12 12:05pm Cecile:

this is great.

Man! You were here last week. I was off, but didn't think you would be around.

Now we need to compare notes on the past 2 Unsungs...
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:05pm paula pc:

2 for 2, Duane...wonderful start in keeping with a glorious day in NYC!!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:09pm duane:

Thanx paula:) Great to hear from you :)
Cecile: Yeah two god ones, right? Angela Bofill is one of my fave singers of the ear, so it was heartbreaking to hear her talk post stroke:(
Confunkshun...Man..I just wished I was old enough to tag along on one of those tours |!!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:12pm Cecile:

I was in tears. And I barely knew her music. My dad went through simliar. It's a long road back.

Confunkshun looked like they were having so much fun until the end there. I only knew their 80s ballads from Detroit radio. Their funk songs sound pretty swell.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:12pm Cecile:

and next week Kool Moe Dee! Even my husband loves Moe Dee.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:13pm duane:

confunkshun..the first three albums are great! Kool Moe Dee looks pretty awesome
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:14pm Cecile:

I'll have to look for them.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:15pm Nathan:

Been checkin' out those Unsung docs... since you spoke of them months ago. Forgot to start pickin' them up again! Thanks for the reminder.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:15pm still b/p:

As usual...I don't want to go step away for lunch, and a farmers market run. Outdoor speakers playing FMU s' whut they need at the downtown market.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:15pm Cecile:

Love's Train has to be one of my favorite schmaltzy ballads next to All Seasons by LeVert.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:16pm Cecile:

Nathan, there are 3 new ones - Sly, Angie Bofill and Confunkshun.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:16pm Lizzie:

Was that new?
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:16pm paula pc:

Love Train by Confunkshun was the theme of a slow jams show on WDMT in Cleveland for years...ESP, Cecile, as I see you just evoked similar emotions...and yes, so sad for Angela Bofill
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:19pm paula pc:

I should say, "Love's Train," and "Con Funk Shun."
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:19pm Ciderbully:

Forever groovy, Duane!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:19pm Cecile:

Ha, Paula, I just knew. ESP!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:21pm Phillip in San Antonio:

That Halloween album cover was amazingly hilarious Duane! Great show as always.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:22pm duane:

Smiles all around errybodeee
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:23pm Nathan:

@Cecile I grab 'em off Youtube and sometimes they take a while to show up.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:24pm Cecile:

duane, do you have any vintage confunkshun you can slide on.

I dig it, Nathan. It's probably still easier than trying to watch them from the TVOne site, right? I always had trouble with their player.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:25pm Nathan:

@Cecile yeah I've tried their site as well.. diabolically bad. But nice that they don't seem to issue any takedowns on the Youtube content. Kind've like the BBC doesn't really 'mind'....
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:25pm Mike East:

I introduced my wife to Sly and the Family Stone last weekend. Reminded me how mindblowing that can be. Great set so far, Duane. You're liftin' my spirit.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:26pm Nathan:

"The Duane Train" that's a new one... made my laugh as I was takin' the rice off the burner.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:26pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Any trashy italodisco on our plates today?
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:27pm Caryn:

Funny, I was watching the final moments of a tv series while the Delores track was playing, and all I could think of was "this would've made for a cool soundtrack for this scene". Made it seem almost "cool blaxploitation showdown"...
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:27pm robyn:

i want a martini lunch...
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:27pm Nathan:

Americans need more holiday. Seriously. You guys work waaay too hard and get too little for it.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:28pm Cecile:

that's why I stuck it out with public employement - much more vacation than private sector.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:28pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Something really sleazy. Vanity 6 sleazy. The Flirts sleazy.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:32pm Cecile:

this sounds like a Candyman record. And I mean this in the best sense.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:32pm duane:

Wow! Everyone's in a randy mood here..I like it, I like it:)
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:33pm Mike East:

I get 3 weeks vacation/year. Just took one week, but now I have to work 2.5 weeks without a day off...gotta make that cash, though.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:34pm Nathan:

Ain't nothing wrong with more vacation. Everyone needs time to relax, see their family, work on their hobbies. I remember when I moved to England from the states and how relaxed everyone was in the private sector about going on holiday.. it was more like "Hey I'm going to take some of my 21 days holiday (plus 10 public holidays) to XXXXX on XX date to XX date" and they were completely fine by it. It wasn't the old, "We decide when you can take your holiday, if ever," mentality. Which frankly sucks.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:36pm Ahmet:

Favorite Aretha Lyric: Knew you'd be a vision in white ... how'd you get your pants so tight?
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:37pm Mike East:

@Nathan - I agree, that sucks. My bosses are pretty accomodating...but then again, so am I, so it works out for them, too.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:38pm Cecile:

ha! I just ordered a supercheap copy of No Shame in My Game.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:38pm Phillip in San Antonio:

Its getting stankier in here! Good thing!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:41pm Cecile:

niiiiiice.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:44pm yayson:

always so good, this show.
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:45pm Andrew Waterloo:

I worked for a Canadian company that was bought out by a New York company... they really grumbled about our 4 weeks vacation and that extra stat that we get
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:48pm Jex:

this song is great!
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:51pm Cecile:

4 AM is great
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:52pm Daniel T from Copenhagen:

This song (Now by Old Smokey) is quite similar to the theme song of Snuff Box http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLKibXI3fXY
  Wed. 7/11/12 12:53pm Denise in DC:

I am proud that I recognized this song as a Monkees song even before the vocals kicked in.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:03pm Cecile:

Nile Rogers's twitter feed is great.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:18pm Cecile:

as were the Relatives
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:21pm seang:

let's boogie
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:26pm Cecile:

segs smooth as silk. you get an A in beatmatching!
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:27pm Cecile:

my God, I may have heard this on UP radio back in the day.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:28pm Cecile:

when did the Michael Burton record come out?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:30pm duane:

cecile:'81
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:31pm Cecile:

Maybe? Or I might have heard it on the WCBN funk show at the time
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:35pm bennett4senate:

this Kasso is an edit, sort of, right? isn't there a more four on the floor version?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:37pm duane:

benet: This is the Jellybean remix from '85 I believe
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:40pm bennett4senate:

hey duane I'm gonna DJ an event at a fancy chocolate store, any ideas for subversive message jams I should get in the mix?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:46pm Cecile:

Skin and Bones by the Kinks?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:46pm Nathan:

Isaac Hayes - Chocolate Salty Balls
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:47pm Cecile:

Gil Scott-Heron - the Train from Washington
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:48pm Cecile:

Machine - there but for the grace of God go I.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:49pm Marmalade Kitty:

Chocolate City..? too obvious?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:50pm Sammy:

Who can take the sunlight ... sprinkle it with dew ...
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:51pm Denise in DC:

**sigh** Gil Scott-Heron RIP.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:53pm Sir Walter:

Miami ... The Raleigh Hotel ... wish I were there, poolside.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:56pm Jagger:

England always shows us how to re-imagine our own blues and soul. American singers are too busy fulfilling the visions of their producers.
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:58pm james stacheless:

Just tuned in - sounds great as usual, Duane. Glad I don't have a gig and can stop by your party on the 20th!
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:59pm duane:

james: :)
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:59pm tim from champaign:

Is this Timmy Thomas song going to end with a frying pan upside his head?
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:59pm Neg-guh-tor:

Great show, as usual. Dig!
  Wed. 7/11/12 1:59pm bennett4senate:

does anybody know about Timmy Thomas, did he have a cool life story or anything? was he a black hippy?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:00pm Cecile:

Timmy, just say you're going into the Witness Proection Program.

tim, ESP! lol
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:00pm Rev. Green:

At least he isn't getting grits thrown on him.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:01pm Cliff Richard:

Hey Bennet! play one of my records? ;)
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:01pm still b/p:

Ahhhh back for final hour. And bought the sorriest looking kale that ever drooped on a farmers market table...but only for a dollah. Is there a wrenching soul song about that?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:02pm Sam Cooke:

or worse
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:03pm Mangione (Feel So Good!):

That's why he's playing Hugh Mase"Kale"a
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:03pm tim from champaign:

I was getting the stink eye from my female co-workers for just listening to that song and I've got earphones on!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:08pm Cheri Pi:

I knew Annie was missing...
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:09pm still b/p:

Ah, buono, Mangione! ...and maybe something later from David Ruffage.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:10pm Cheri Pi:

Sb/P-I heard that you can refresh wilted greens by swishing them around in some vinegar water. Haven't tried it myself....
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:14pm Cecile:

Oh, my sweet gangster.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:15pm Cheri Pi:

hahahahaha. they wish.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:17pm still b/p:

If it's looking any worse -- as it probably will after a few hours in my bike pannier -- I will try to reanimate it. Maybe stab a giant adenalin hypo into it...à la the Pulp Fiction OD emergency.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:20pm Prog Police:

Hmmm... Cozy Powell, should this incident be reported? This track's a close call.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:23pm Cecile:

franklin agaye?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:26pm Cecile:

whoops, mispelled. hahahaha
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:28pm Caryn:

@sb/p: some time in a bowl of ice water should perk that kale up
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:30pm Cecile:

You've heard of the Ex Cops, but have you heard of Axe Cop?
http://axecop.com/index.php/acask
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:31pm duane:

cecile: HAhahaha..me likes
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:31pm still b/p:

Thanks, Caryn. Hope YOU get some greens.

Too bad commenter slugluv wasn't on here for that last track.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:32pm Cecile:

it's amazing. A little kid writes it, and his older brother draws it up for him.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:33pm robyn:

"Throughout the recording of the album, Young and his fellow musicians consumed a homemade concoction dubbed "Honey Slides", a goop of sauteed marijuana and honey that "felt like heroin"." Sounds a bit safer though.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:34pm duane:

robyn: That sounds awesome, actually...
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:35pm Cecile:

that explains a whole lot about that album, actually.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:35pm robyn:

it does sound awesome. but heroin? you would think young would know heroin from heroin. so maybe a little scary too...
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:36pm james stacheless:

Cool pair of covers!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:37pm duane:

robyn & ceclile: And why It sounds so good when your stuffin your face with brownies while you're..you know
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:37pm still b/p:

Has Billy Jam ever tried that double-sticky icky?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:43pm robyn:

thanks for the shoutout duane. what will my mother think!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:46pm Jose Cuervo:

Do Not forget to wash down the honeyslide con ample shots of tequila. Also, Mr. Young never no uso the heroin, Mr. Whitten and Mr. Berry they do that.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:49pm Mike East:

This was a great show today, Duane. Don't forget - Free Parliament show tomorrow at Rockefeller Park!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:50pm Caryn:

The honey slides story really does explain the sound of that album. I was just guessing lots of booze, but the goop actually sounds better and even healthier!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:51pm robyn:

@cuervo he didn't but many people he knew did...you see what i'm saying. here's some more on honey slides: http://thrasherswheat.org/rns/honeyslides.htm
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:52pm robyn:

""The high was debilitating. 'People passed out,' said Elliot Roberts. 'This stuff was, like, way worse than heroin.'" actually, this may just speak to the lack of seriousness with which they regarded heroin.
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:52pm Fan Request:

Anybody got the Golden Smog's cover of Revolution Blues?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:53pm common:

creeeepy
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:56pm bennett4senate:

Madvillain, right?
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:56pm duane:

bennet: Yup!
  Wed. 7/11/12 2:58pm Mister Mackey:

Okay, children, what do we say?
