@KP: I think I know who you're talking about. Yes, we don't mention his name here....

@fleep - :-)

@Evil: Be kind
Avatar Sun. 2/17/13 2:33am Evil Scientist:

@Esteban, doesn't that only work for the real world?
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:34am KP:

I did find a former member of the later Byrds, bassist John York, also went to Hicksville. I traded emails with him about it. Nice to talk to a Byrd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:35am Holly in NC:

Who don't you mention? Hint?
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:35am Esteban (NJ):

@Evil: probably. Ask Holly...she has fancy computer.

surrounded by tattoo artists for years, I have only natural scars. At 36 years of age, for the first time I thought of a tattoo (drunk), and its WFMU por vida

@Holly: His initials are BJ. He doesn't have a Bear.

OH! Is a piano man?
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:38am KP:

Love Vanilla Fudge, finally saw the reunited original group a while ago. They did a fantastic Some Velvet Morning. To me, as great as the original is, it's the Vanilla Fudge's song, and prob Shadow Morton.
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:39am Esteban (NJ):

Hahahaha. I wouldn't have figured that out, sadly.
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:39am KP:

He did have us Humming in an earlier betterer incarnation.
Avatar Sun. 2/17/13 2:40am Evil Scientist:

The Group Image were produced by Shadow Morton?
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:41am KP:

I saw him play a dance n gym at Hicksville HS. but he played Keith Emerson/Nice type stuff so nobody danced.

Sunday morning are awful, this is the start of our work week. Listening to this show every sunday morning, brings back the hope to this life. thanks Joe.

Moving from non fancy Costco laptop to non fancy free phone. Love 'em both.

@Fleep you're right, simply clicking on profile turns people blue. But I'm still friends wiht Evil Scientist ;-)

@Evil: Yep, indeed!

The answer is 5. John Lennon would be on his fifth wife.

@KP - beg to differ - for me original, then Thin White Rope
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:44am KP:

I dunno, they were married 11 years and seemed to have it going on up until end.
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:44am Joe McG:

@Yair Yona: Wow, thanks! And thank YOU for giving us great music to play on this station, as well!
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:45am Esteban (NJ):

Thanks for NYD. Sadly, I only have the Dolls on cassette...why oh why did I buy albums on tape?
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:46am Esteban (NJ):

Answer: bargain bins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:46am Holly in NC:

@Esteban - because they were portable, remember?
Avatar Sun. 2/17/13 2:46am Yair Yona:

@Joe - my pleasure of course ;)
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:47am Esteban (NJ):

@Holly: portable—yeah, that too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:48am Holly in NC:

OK, here's where you hate me when I confess how much I love Aerosmith's cover... I WAS A KID, DAMMIT!
Avatar Sun. 2/17/13 2:49am tomB:

so if John Lennon lived long enough to divorce, Yoko would have no reason to be loyal. To whom would she be married?
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:49am Joe McG:

@Holly: That was the first version I heard! Night in the Ruts/Right in the Nuts!
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:51am Esteban (NJ):

???!!! Never heard this song. Children of heaven, indeed. Great.

@Joe - my seagulls are SO scratched up.
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:52am KP:

Holly, what did Aerosmith cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:53am Holly in NC:

@KP - Walkin' In the Sand.
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:53am KP:

Walking in Sand? Yuk!
  Sun. 2/17/13 2:54am Esteban (NJ):

@tom: clearly, Yoko would (should) be with David Byrne. Or Peter Gabriel.
Avatar    Sun. 2/17/13 2:55am KP:

Getting there, huh. Geat fun. Joe. Thanks.

Thanks for a great evening (or morning) Joe

Sorry holly, doesnt seem entertaining to me but they had their moments. thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:57am Minnesota Jeff:

I imagine Yoko marrying some mega rich european eccentric.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/17/13 2:58am Holly in NC:

@KP - It's very much a time/place thing. If you weren't listening w your best friend over a summer of 6th grade sleepovers, yeah, kinda sucks.
