Picked up an Eric Dolphy, Marc Bolan, & a reissue of "Can't Keep From Crying" (the Kennedy Blues Tribute Album from 64) all for a buck from the dollar store this morning.I felt like Harvey Pekar at Christmas time.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:18pm Matt F:

Hey Stanley! Good time to show up, you missed the Ramones CD wardrobe malfunction.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:19pm Stanley:

That version of Summertime kicked ass!

hearing sousa reminds me of arthur fiedler. from watching the boston pops concerts, i think of him on july 4 more often than i do uncle sam.

Ahhh. Walter Wanderly so cool
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:33pm listener james from westwood:

ah, here we go. "summer samba" practically yells "frosty blender drink with umbrellas!"
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:34pm Dominick:

The off center hole adds just the right amount of blender drink effect needed!
Avatar Thu. 7/4/13 2:35pm Sean B.:

Hmmmmm,....retrospectively reminiscing about Fiedler chokes me up;He WAS BOSTON to me always and forever,gentlemen;And perhaps America,also...I dunno.I do know this show is great today...as usual...Matt.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:36pm Matt F:

Dominick- yes! it always sounds weird when I hear a non-off-center copy.

rex's promo for the just-played michael shelley premium was just as good as the premium itself.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 2:48pm Matt F:

Agreed. No one does the phony radio announcer voice as good as Rex.
Avatar Thu. 7/4/13 2:49pm Sean B.:

Greetings from I-90 60 miles west of Albany. Will be in Brookline in a few hours. Should visit any of your old haunts Matt?
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:11pm Matt F:

If you're looking to record shop, be sure to hit Stereo Jack's on Mass Ave in Cambridge. All my other old haunts have been turned into Starbucks or Sunglass Hut!
  Thu. 7/4/13 3:16pm Bruce P.:

Matt -- do you have a personal favorite Sunglass Hut?
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:17pm Matt F:

The one where the Tasty used to be is generally considered to be the best.

Oh moicy! Gary U.S. Bonds!
  Thu. 7/4/13 3:22pm Bruce P.:

Thanks for the Vision & Fashion tips. I'll recommend Give The Drummer Radio for ALL consumer advice.

Are Nuggets & Mystery Train still in existence Matt?. Used to frequent them a ton when I actually had the cash to buy notable records.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:36pm listener james from westwood:

frogman!
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:38pm Matt F:

Sean B- dunno. I know the Cambridge Mystery Train has been gone for awhile, not sure about the Newbury St. one...
Avatar Thu. 7/4/13 3:40pm Sean B.:

You just played 4 of my top 20 favorite songs of all time in one fucking show man...;Jeesshh...Wanna have a beer with you man...What the hell are you doing to me.THIS IS A CONSPIRACY!. Lmao.
Avatar Thu. 7/4/13 3:51pm Sean B.:

Rick Nelson=An unfortunate musical secret treasure to many who do not know but should.
  Thu. 7/4/13 3:53pm Bruce P.:

Happy "Birthday", Pops.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:56pm Stanley:

Great sideways tribute for Independence Day, Matt. As you Americans get so worked up about it, wondering should we Brits be feeling downcast today? Hell no, we're all American nowadays.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 3:57pm Matt F:

Yeah Bruce, I forgot! Total coincidence. I think the powers that be moved it to August 4th.
Avatar Thu. 7/4/13 3:57pm Sean B.:

Have a great weekend peeps!. Make sure your boigas are thoroughly cooked and don't play with guns!.
  Thu. 7/4/13 3:59pm Bruce P.:

Some folks celebrate Louis on both July 4th AND August 4th.

Thanks, Matt, for another great show.
Avatar    Thu. 7/4/13 4:00pm listener james from westwood:
