James sounds a little crusty but his band is on fire beyond all normal Earth standards. Bathroom break jam, Joe?

bob, i find audio JB kinda dull sometimes. i'm almost always hooked when i get a/v JB
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 10:33am Cecile:

They ran this clip on TV1 Unsung when they did a special video program on all the performers in the first couple of seasons. Spellbinding.

All I know is that whatsomever JB play, it's got to be FUNKY.

I'm having a horrible memory of a horrible sitcom from early childhood based on this song. Or was it a movie? Anyway, I remember it being horrible. And it starred Jeannie from "I Dream Of..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 10:41am Cecile:

It was a sitcom and a movie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 10:42am DCE:

yep, I remember it!

It shoulda just stopped with the song.

@nicky: I've toned down the show for the mornings. Used to be worse!

Nickybones, it IS spring. Goats and bunnies aren't the only ones getting in on the action these days.

ha! awesome, Joe. <makes a note to dig through old archives>
  Thu. 3/26/15 10:45am Ike:

Hope they didn't go skinny dipping in a Superfund river like the the Hudson of the 70s. If they did, they should be doing the mutant funk shuffle by now.

Very true, @Wendy...60 degrees in NYC...perfect skinnydippin weather

Hey, everybody, I managed to get a picture on the playlist during the show FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! Just to say "T.Hanks!"

A lot of talented DJs are going to want in on the next schedule and there won't be room for all -- somebody on staff should volunteer to go over to GTDR where they can play all the dirty NC-17 records they want, ha ha.

Should Montage be filed under "Chamber Pop," or "Sunshine Pop?"
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 10:54am Wendy del Formaggio:

Joe McG, that picture is awesome. Considering my general opinion of the acting ability of Mr. Hanks, it works in a few different ways.
  Thu. 3/26/15 10:55am Ick:

Temporarily, of course. Do that plus help repair the 3rd floor and get Ken's dog some anti-anxiety meds, you get a coupon for whatever timeslot u want in 2017. J/k I'll shush now
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 10:55am Joe McG:

@ChrisB: I would say "Chamber Pop" or "Baroque Rock"!

Cheryl Ladd did a soft-rock cover of 'Skinnydippin', btw. I hoped that memory had been long erased, but no.
Avatar    Thu. 3/26/15 11:00am V Priceless:

great LB track - Alice Cooper did a cool version of this. RIP Michael Brown.
Avatar    Thu. 3/26/15 11:00am Roberto:

Michael Brown appeared on Bob Brainen in early '03, along with Tom Finn. It was an epic, all-over-the-place show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:01am ChrisB.:

I seem to go through a lot of click stars during Single File.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:02am Cecile:

I didn't know he passed. that's sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:06am Parq:

Back in time for the Brown trib. Speaking of Browns, that was a firebreathing JB track you played just shy of 10:30.
Avatar    Thu. 3/26/15 11:07am V Priceless:

I wonder if it's Roy Wood's bar...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:33am DCE:

so is Stories related in some way to Michael Brown?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:33am Parq:

This is neat. I don't know any of these except for "Call You Up".
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 11:35am Joe McG:

@DCE: Yeah, Stories was his second band. He made 2 LPs with them before leaving them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:35am coelacanth:

so,aside from not knowing Michael Brown was in stories, i've been completely ignorant to this band.
(...yet it's so obviously him!)
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 11:36am Claw!:

This here song is right purty

great trib, Joe - did anyone ever tell you you rule?
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 11:38am Joe McG:

@DCE: They're pretty easy to find and usually cheap. Not all gold, but some really great stuff on them, esp. if you're a fan of the Left Banke style, slightly updated to the 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:38am ChrisB.:

Wait a minute? Stories? "Brother Louie" Stories???
Avatar Thu. 3/26/15 11:39am Joe McG:

@ChrisB: That's them! Thanks, VP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:40am coelacanth:

i only have "brother louie" on multi-artist comps,but i've heard the first album. overall i like Hot Chocolate more (at least "cicero park"), but Stories killed it! (in a good way!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/26/15 11:40am Uncle Michael:

Hot Chocolate's original still beats Stories "Brother Louie" cover. Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:41am Carmichael:

Heya, Joe. Just now arriving to the big shoe. Yay on the Leftr Banke stuff, big Michael Brown fan here.

Great minds, coelacanth.

Uncle M, i think they're really close...but i've never bought a Stories album!
Avatar    Thu. 3/26/15 11:43am Roberto:

From what I recall, Michael pretty much tells all to Bob Brainen on that '03 appearance. Check out the archives for the full story!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/26/15 11:43am Parq:

I kind of like "What Do You Know", the LB's attempt to go shitkicker. I think it's fun.
