great to hear you guys! happy sunday to you and thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:21pm Uncle Michael:

Richard Evans is the man playing the astonishing bass line on King Floyd's "Groovy Situation." It's one of my favorites of all time. Please play that.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 5:21pm JakeGould:

Like shows that edumacate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:22pm Uncle Michael:

Gene Chandler...geez...bad brain fart! Not King Floyd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:23pm Uncle Michael:

And not apropos of today's show but because James is in the studio...the Dark Star with Bill Frisell, James....wow. Thank you for making that music. I'm seeing Bill in a couple weeks.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:24pm Mark Ohe:

Good to hear you both on air together. Like the tag-team format!

Enjoying the Sunday-night (for me) music.

i worry that some folks might've been tempted to give STDs a try on the strength of that johnnie taylor track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:36pm Uncle Michael:

Oh cripes, I love Wado City so much.

This is good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 5:50pm Uncle Michael:

I'm getting behind this record. They don't need to pay me.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 5:51pm JakeGould:

Wonderful show for a thawing NYC Sunday.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:52pm Bob in Oakland:

I can't be the only one here thinking Zachary Brimstead, Esq.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:55pm Ira B. Eckhardt (6 years old):

I've had Pastor T. L. Barrett on my mix for my entire life.
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:58pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

WTF was that? And where is Gaylord Fields
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 5:59pm JakeGould:

The one you know as Gaylord Fields is gone…
  Sun. 2/22/15 5:59pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

If wfmu is playing Christian music it can only be....ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!

  Sun. 2/22/15 6:08pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

The Mets could use a Mookie Wilson and a Daryl Strawberry. As a die hard mets fan I'm not looking forward to another loosing season
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:10pm Uncle Michael:

This is my favorite version of California Soul.

I went to tell Larry Grogan you were doing this tribute, Ira...and he already knew.
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:12pm whattawino:

This Marlena Shaw is killin' me!
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:14pm JakeGould:

Why doesn’t somebody make a Mookie Strawberry shake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:15pm braveness23:

Just stopped by to update my avatar. Good show, BTW.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:17pm Uncle Michael:

They tried, Jake. They ran out of cocaine.
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:18pm Mark Ohe:

Crazy to think that Evans worked with Woddy Herman, Gang Starr and Sun Ra. Hi Georgia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this arrangement 'Hush' is all that ! ( - a formative tune for me due to Deep Purple 45)...
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:21pm JakeGould:

A Mookie Strawberry shake should come with 18 chicken McNuggets and 1 order of fries.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:23pm glenn:

we will happily trade dickey and thole back to the mets.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:25pm dale:

a fine show with cheesy covers. only an fmu listener could relate. cheers!
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:26pm JakeGould:

Dale, there is no cheese. No guilty pleasures. NONE!
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Mark Ohe:

Hold on now! Gang Starr was a sample? Then I take back my comment, and will modify it to: Amazing that Evans worked with "Bob."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Uncle Michael:

There is cheese! But no, there should be no guilty musical pleasures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:30pm Uncle Michael:

Mr. Peepers got some soul.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:31pm Toddophonic:

My goodness Wally Cox is versatile! If I didn't trust Ira & James so implicitly I would never believe this is the same dude who voiced "Underdog".
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:32pm dale:

i LOVE cheesy covers - do you not know me? hee hee - can there be TWO wally coxeses?
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:32pm georgiah:

i've never been lucky enough to catch yo la tengo live, but if this is any indication of their witty between song repartee, count me in.
Avatar Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm dale:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm Uncle Michael:

Great Evans tribute, gentlemen. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/22/15 6:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah, Thx !
  Sun. 2/22/15 6:55pm P-90:

Thanks, Ira! Tough to do justice to Gaylord's slot, but you met that challenge handily (with aplomb even) today.
Looking forward your next cameo appearance.
