Hi, Joe.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:13am Destroit:

Hello Joe, KP, and all the good people. Glad to be here. (love the old Tymie start)
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 12:15am Joe McG:

Hey, KP and Destroit, you mugs.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:16am Holly in NC:

Hello Joe & other friends! That Roger Kahn tune should've been in The Shining...
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:18am Al Bowlly:

@Holly: I did ok.

Mac's been off for most of a month. Glad to see Mc's taken up the 78ish slack.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:20am Destroit:

  Sun. 9/2/12 12:22am T-Zero:

I love this musical era... Thanks! Joe McG
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:24am Destroit:

+1 to Zero. Agree.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:25am Matt from Springfield:

Waaooow! I feel good, I knew that I would now
I feeeeel good, I knew that I would now
So good, so good, I got my SWAG!!!!!!

Thanks to you Joe and all the volunteers! That's the 2nd and final package for me!
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 12:26am Joe McG:

Hey, T-Zero and Destroit! Hey Holly! Hey, Matt!
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:26am 12539:

I can't remember the last time I heard a song with the word "negligee."
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:27am Matt from Springfield:

The last mail delivery for a three-day weekend--considerate timing!

Howdy listeners/commenters/lurkers as well!
Also digging the Old-Tymie™ start!
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:28am Matt from Springfield:

It is appropriate to play since Mac's been off for a month--Joe McG has proven very considerate in "taking up slack" for other programs, that have gone off the schedule or away for a long time.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:29am Destroit:

  Sun. 9/2/12 12:30am Matt from Springfield:

(Royalties arriving soon from your innovative branding..)
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:31am T-Zero:

I think one reason I like this era so much is it reminds me of my grandparents with whom I was sooooo close... In fact, my flat is furnished from the 30s with stuff that belong to them
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:33am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: Furniture especially, that stuff tends to stay in my family a long time. Besides other antiques and personal possessions, it's nice to have at your place, to remind you of those you loved long after they're gone.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:33am T-Zero:

Well, that, and I just really like old this style of jazz (swing/ragtime etc)
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:34am Droll:

[ On a brief break from lurking to say how much I'm enjoying the crooning ]
12539, Centerfold, J Geils?
Hej hej everyone!
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:36am 12539:

@Droll, I can't remember the last time I heard "Centerfold" either. Wouldn't surprise me if Joe has the single somewhere.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:38am Holly in NC:

Still listening but lurking - 1 German Shephard just vomited the (very expensive) still-wrapped cheese he ate earlier in the evening, & Shep #2 has more of the cat in its mouth than I feel comfortable with...
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:39am Destroit:

Good sense.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:39am Matt from Springfield:

Claude Ivey at the Wurlitzer organ at Kensington Cinema, 1927!
GREAT bed music! It has that whole band to go with it!
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:39am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly!
Oh stop worrying, the cat's fine...at least the Shepherd will be fine in any case...
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:41am Destroit:

Good lord holly, paging Caesar and Jackson with serious intent! :)
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:42am Droll:

Holly, Methinks the hounds are trying to tell you you're not feeding them enough.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:45am Matt from Springfield:

RIP Hal David.
Burt Bacharach is some years younger than Mr. David, hopefully he still has a few years left.
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:49am Matt from Springfield:

9th Ward Marching Band, they're great! And they've had a great run on FMU lately!
  Sun. 9/2/12 12:49am Destroit:

Great drum set. (watching OU Vs UTEP, getting good)
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:01am Matt from Springfield:

Ooooh! Deep sexy voice of Isaac, 111% pure dark cacao, richer than Bill Gates.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 1:03am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha!

And now Tavares, jewel in the crown of Saturday Night Fever.
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:07am slugluv1313:

oh WOW!!!!! loving TAVARES' version of "She's Gone"!!!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:08am Matt from Springfield:

Hi slugluv!
I never knew they did one either, it's a great version!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:15am KP:

Richer than Bill Gates. Let me put that on a save/get.
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:16am Matt from Springfield:

Howdy King Penguin!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:24am KP:

Hey Matt. How's va.
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

Enjoying Surface Noise on a long weekend--same with you?
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:27am Sue:

  Sun. 9/2/12 1:28am KP:

I have to work Monday but went to yankee game today and will make US Open tomorrow.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 1:33am Joe McG:

Hey, slugluv! Hey, Sue! Hope you all are doing alright this fine evening.
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:33am Matt from Springfield:

Country twang to Lulu!

@KP: As long as you're having fun!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

70s Encyclopedia: "see also: "Another Day, Roy Harper" "
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:39am KP:

  Sun. 9/2/12 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, is Bill Haley the first to perform this chestnut?
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 1:42am Joe McG:

@Matt: I b'lieve he was! Fran Beecher on guitar!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Thanks. Now this Street People one, sounds like a "Muddy Water" comp song performed by the Archies! ;)
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 1:48am Joe McG:

@Matt: You done hit it on the head! Poor Jenny.
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:48am Ari:

Street People were awesome, great show!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:50am Ari:

um, was
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 1:50am Joe McG:

@Ari: Was, are, were! They're out there still playing somewhere in space. Thanks, Ari!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:54am Julie:

i missed the Bradys!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

Do We Do We!
  Sun. 9/2/12 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Evenin' Julie!
Just start from the beginning--it's a great Single File start to finish!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:03am Julie:

music whore?
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:06am slugluv1313:

YES!!!!!! i DO remember this episode! thought that the version you played sounded different :)
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:09am #K:

  Sun. 9/2/12 2:09am Ari:

We've been having great fun listening to your show. Loving Spoonful detours and all, thanks!
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:12am Joe McG:

Hey there, #K! How are YOU?? @Ari: Thanks, man! Having fun, as usual!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:16am #K:

I am good! I am far far up in upstate NY. I seem to listen to the station more up here! Nice to hear you from far away!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:17am Ari:

We were woken up at 3am by someone ringing our doorbell, I can safely say that this radio station has saved our night. 06:16 here right now, rock on :)
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:17am Matt from Springfield:

"No Milk Today", say Sandy and Donna.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:17am Joe McG:

Oh good, this country-ish set should suit your surroundings!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:17am Marmalade Kitty:

Evening Joe, everyone! Just tuning in before bed, late late night!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:18am #K:

hmm I suppose it does!
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:19am Joe McG:

@Hey Kitty! Such late nights you keep there in the UK! @#K: Thanks for joining me!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Kitty!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:21am Ari:

Never heard of Skeeter Davis, this is a find. THanks.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:23am Joe McG:

@Ari: If you ever see it, pick up her autobiography, also called "Bus Fare to Kentucky." It's a doozie!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:23am Matt from Springfield:

@Ari: Her big hit was in the early 60s, the "don't they know it's the end of the world" one, you may have heard it. In any case there's more to her than just that hit.

Good rec, Joe!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:23am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe 'n everybody. Just going for a tramp in the woods with the dog. Those tramps are up early!!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:24am Ari:

Will keep an eye out, great stuff you're playing.
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:25am T-Zero:

The End of the World is one of those songs from my childhood I still love to listen to. Skeeter Davis is fantastic.
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:26am Minnesota Jeff:

Hello, good morning.
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:27am T-Zero:

Heh, Matt! ... I was like 6 or 7 when I first heard that song...
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:27am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Hey, Minnesoter! Hey, T-Zero!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:30am Ari:

wow, this song
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:31am Julie:

How can you have a couple of one night stands with the same person?
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:33am Ari:

Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:33am Joe McG:

@Julie: Hi, Julie! Why not?
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:34am Julie:

Well how is it one night then? :)
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:35am Joe McG:

One night on different nights!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:36am Brian in UK:

Jimmie Dale's voice. Hmmm. Useless fact, his old man was called Brian.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:38am Joe McG:

@Brian: Love that! I wonder what Joe Ely's dad's name was?
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:39am Julie:

How Neil Youngish
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:40am Joe McG:

Well, they are from Canada!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

That intro was quite Neil Young-ish!
Haven't played it yet, but I now have the Can-Con CD sitting next to me! Go Chilliwack!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:41am Julie:

so is Rush. they are not so Neal Youngish
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:42am Ari:

Chilliwack ? Again, never heard, great.
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:43am Julie:

EFD Canophile
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:43am Minnesota Jeff:

I do not approved of the band name "Chilliwack". But the song was nice.
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:45am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 9/2/12 2:46am Matt from Springfield:

@MN Jeff: I think Chilliwack is a place in British Columbia. Lemme check..
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

Yep, a rural town in interior BC over the hills from Vancouver. And yet: "Despite its name, Chilliwack actually formed and has always been based, in nearby Vancouver." Whatever the band's reason.
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:50am Joe McG:

Chilliwack later recorded my fave rave "Sausalito Summer Night."
Avatar Sun. 9/2/12 2:57am Joe McG:

Well, I gotta be moseyin' along now. Thanks everyone for listening, and I hope you all have a great, labor-free Labor Day (if it applies) and a great rest of weekend (if it doesn't)!
  Sun. 9/2/12 2:57am 12539:

Thanks Joe.
  Sun. 9/2/12 3:00am Matt from Springfield:
