Glad to be able to hang live today, Going on a road trip to a record store in Rayne Louisiana.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 9:09am Guido from Cologne:

Well done shortening edit for the single length.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/25/14 9:14am Santos L Halper:

Morning Bob. This set should get everyone up and movin'! Coffee not needed
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 9:17am TDK60:

I saw Sonny Stitt once, at the Village Gate, circa summer '71.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 9:19am Nanker de Tucson:

Got to see Sonny Stitt play at the club Charlie Parker used to own in Kansas City MO. Pretty sure Dick Nixon was president then.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 9:24am Nanker de Tucson:

Timothy -- upbeat tune unless you pay attention to lyrics
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/25/14 9:25am Santos L Halper:

Good lord. Don't think i've heard Timothy since it's radio days
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:35am RHenderson:

It's funny, Bob: your reaction to "acid jazz" is much like my own to "Northern Soul." Like, "wasn't successful the first time around"?
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:37am RHenderson:

Ah! Micro T Rundgren allusion!
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:46am RHenderson:

This deodorant ad confirms everything I've ever thought about Iron Butterfly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/25/14 9:46am Santos L Halper:

There was such demand for it they just had to put the deodorant ad out on EP, eh? But the Who beat them to it...
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:49am marmalade kitty:

love the tone on that harmonica
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:53am Sd:

Iron butterfly did a deoderant ad? <mind blown>
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:53am RHenderson:

The single mix of "Tonight" sounds a bit different. One of the best Move singles. Jeff Lynne, back when he was bearable ...
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 9:54am SmokinJ:

Love the adverts bb!

Bob Brainen Sells Out
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 10/25/14 9:56am Fuzzy:

Sounds like Meatwad's uncle!
  Sat. 10/25/14 9:58am Stuart Rose:

RH, Iron Butterfly did write some good songs. And I can't help but like Doug Ingle's voice, however mannered it may be.
Jeff Lynne did become obnoxious when he took the reins of ELO. But check out his early band, The Idle Race.
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:02am RHenderson:

No problems with The Idle Race, Stuart. "Impostors of Life's Magazine" and many others have long been favorites.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 10:04am SmokinJ:

bb: Saw NRBQ Wednesday nite. Casey is great!
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:09am RHenderson:

Glad you mentioned the "Split Endz" Move LP, Bob. Emblematic of the great brief period of the UA label at the beginning of the '70s, with Bonzos et al.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 10:12am SmokinJ:

NOW it's a party!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 10/25/14 10:15am SeanG:

groovy
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:18am RHenderson:

Smokey's drummer sounds like Ziggy Modeliste s-l-o-w-e-d down a bit ...
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:19am RHenderson:

AHHHH, the liturgical music of my native land, Detroit.
Avatar Sat. 10/25/14 10:22am SmokinJ:

Rockin' with the '5'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 10/25/14 10:22am SeanG:

hot stuff!
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:26am Susan C.:

Bob, I had your marathon premium with the Great Shakes tracks but lost it long ago to the destructive power of water flooding my property. It's nice to hear those little nostalgic treats again.
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:42am RHenderson:

Never noticed McGuinn playing "Jesu, Joy..." prior to now...
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:44am mrmucho:

Love this Wildweeds one!
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:46am marmalade kitty:

what mrmucho just said
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:49am Stuart Rose:

Hey RH, what MC 5 album would you recommend to someone looking to give them a second chance?
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:49am Santos L Halper:

Activate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 10/25/14 10:57am Fuzzy:

Nice!
  Sat. 10/25/14 10:59am RHenderson:

@ Stuart - "Kick Out The Jams " is near definitive, but "High Time" is great too.
  Sat. 10/25/14 11:00am RHenderson:

Excellent show thanks Bob!
  Sat. 10/25/14 11:23pm Anthony Olszewski:

Will you be playing the side B of Jimmy Kelly - Jersey City Baby? That was The Jersey City Cha Cha?
  Sun. 10/26/14 10:10am Anthony Olszewski:

Is any information available about Jimmy Kelly and the Jersey City reference?

In the early days of radio, station WAAT was located in Jersey City. Frank Sinatra's first stint as a radio singer was on this local station in late 1936. I always wondered how much live music and local talent was broadcast from WAAT.
