Hello Joe and all the good people. Glad to be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:08am Joe McG:

Hey, Destroit. What are you destroiting this evening?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:12am Destroit:

My general health Joe, gorging on chocolate and cheese :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:13am Joe McG:

How overWeening of you!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:16am Holly in NC:

Hello Joe & Destroit!
Will be quiet, listening on my android Samsung, happily pissing Apple off & still horrid @ texting :-)

Cheese here too! La Serena, Springbrook Tarentaise, Rogue Caveman, oh yeah.

Joe, will you be honoring Neil Armstrong?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:16am anne:

hey Joe!!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:17am Destroit:

Ha, Good lord that was awful.
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:18am Destroit:

Hello holly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:18am Joe McG:

Hey, Holly! Good music for androids right now. No plans to honor Neil--I didn't know he was dead until Blumin said so! Hey, Anne! Anne from Chi-town?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:21am Destroit:

Just to clarify, weening reference=awful. Music is nice so far Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:24am Joe McG:

Thanks, Destroit! I know my puns are rotten, but I can't help it!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:31am jeff-m:

evening man
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:32am Joe McG:

Hey, Jeff! Pardon my indecision!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:32am Holly in NC:

Really like this new Limiñanas lp.
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:36am Destroit:

Dies anyone else think that the liminanas track sounds like the Beatles "if I needed someone"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 12:44am Joe McG:

I have to hear it again to decide, I think.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:05am Destroit:

This lounge bossanova groove is great, keep Movin'
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

All hail those 3 Kings of Terepia!
Hello Joe and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! How do you fare?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:11am KP:

Hey, Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:12am Joe McG:

Hey, KP. What ho!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

Fare? No charge!
The Spanish cava I'm sipping tonight is more than fair however!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:19am Joe McG:

What's a cava, Matt?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:21am Matt from Springfield:

Spanish "champagne", sparkling wine. Nice, affordable, and if you like champagne really BRUT, this is a good one to have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:23am Joe McG:

Wow, champagne! Special occasion?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

Naw, just like bubbly! :)
There's another finer champagne I have saved in case of really special occasions.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:26am KP:

Champagne? And me out of diet coke!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, hypnotizing vibes in the background!

@KP: Find some more bubbly! Beer is acceptable :)
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:33am KP:

Don't want to bum you out but beer was long time ago. Closest thing to it is listening to Joe.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:37am Holly in NC:

I can't believe you have this 7in! How very wonderful!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

Listening to Joe at a steady rate will zone you out more and more with each minute.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

And Johnny Bond continues in full, as promised!

Hello there Holly!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:38am KP:

West-Bryant, unbelievable bubba,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:39am Joe McG:

@Holly: A bit scratched up, unfortunately! @Matt: I still had it in my bag, and I remember you asked!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:39am Holly in NC:

Hi Matt!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

Wooooo! That makes us proud Drunks! :D
Thanks Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:46am Joe McG:

You bet, Matt. One for the Elwood P. Dowds.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:47am KP:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:51am Joe McG:

Also scratchy, but the horns come through loud and clear!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

Loud and clear! What a theme!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:56am Dean:

Listening in Hong Kong - excellent way to start the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:57am Joe McG:

Nice! Welcome, Dean!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:58am KP:

Arkade? Any substantive links? for us to find out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 1:59am Joe McG:

@KP: It's a tough one to research. Just a lot of hits for video games!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am Joe McG:

Arkade is probably a Steve Barri concoction: he produced it and cowrote it with Price and Walsh.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am KP:

Link to the film "Tender Mercies."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am Joe McG:

Oh, and Roger Nichols engineered it with Phil Kaye! Very informative label!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:02am KP:

Oddly enough we were going use "Middle of the Road" but it was taken.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:02am KP:

Oddly enough we were going use "Middle of the Road" but it was taken.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Ask Clay Pigeon about Arkade! I see it's a Dunhill-ABC record, Clay has talked extensively about the style of that label and the bands on it.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:10am KP:

guitar lightning is too much!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

Looking forward to that Radio Free Culture.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

I remember Scott McKenzie. A tribute to his other songs would be fantastic--I haven't heard anything else by him and would like to learn.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:15am KP:

What a great voice.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:17am KP:

There's a young woman singer from UK (via Pakistan, i think) named Rumer. She just put out an album and her cover of this is best thing on it. but all cool. She sounds exactly like Karen Carpenter.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:19am KP:

The arrangements and choice of songs are like the Carpenters too. It's sort of mesmerizing.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Just "Rumer"? Love Karen and her style of vocals, I need to check Rumer out!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:24am KP:

Recommend very highly. Esp that PF Sloan song.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

Here's another P.F. Sloan, as sung by The Grass Roots, orig established by PF as a vehicle to record and release his songs!

Thanks for the rec, KP.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:25am KP:

OK "PF Sloane" is a song title that is entirely a real person's name. I can only think of "Alex Chilton" as being same way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 2:27am Joe McG:

There's a fun game: name all of the songs named after rock stars. Me first: "Deborah Harry" by Family Fodder.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:30am Matt from Springfield:

Billy Bragg "Levi Stubb's Tears"
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:31am Matt from Springfield:

Weezer "Buddy Holly"
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am KP:

Right but never heard of that one. i just realized it would have to be be real people in rock. Bob Dylan alone has about 30 civil rights songs with real names as titles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am Joe McG:

American Music Club: "Johnny Mathis' Feet."
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: Ballads of, Stories of, Lonesome Deaths of...
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:33am KP:

"Buddy Holy" fits, category is just the name.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:34am KP:

Matt, yeah all that cheery stuff.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:35am Marmalade Kitty:

morning Joe, everyone. I kinda recognise that childrens rhyme fromk somewhere..
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, is this the duo usually known as Chad & Jeremy??
Never knew they went into Baroque psychedelia in the mid 60s!!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Hiya Kitty!

You mean the "cabbages and kings" intro? That was from "The Walrus and The Carpenter" by Lewis Carroll!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:38am Marmalade Kitty:

fromk? ..thanks Matt! :)
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

Lewis C. was the *original* "Go ask Alice"! :)
Don't know what was going through his mind, or what he was imbibing, but what an early psychedelic satirist and fantasy writer!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:48am KP:

Did you read "Papa john,' that probably has more insight into PF Sloane.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:52am KP:

This is already great.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:56am Holly in NC:

Most excellent. Thanks Joe!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:57am KP:

hmmm unanticipated Phil Schaap turn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 8/26/12 2:57am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everyone! See you next week!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

So tranced-out from this...rude awakening when the show ends!

Thanks Joe for another amazing episode! Have a good night KP, Holly, Kitty and everyone else grooving along to the music!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:58am KP:

Thank you!
  Sun. 8/26/12 3:00am Marmalade Kitty:
