Mornin' all! bb, you're a mind reader. Always a good idea to start your day with Arthur Lee & the Boys! :)
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 9:04am WilliamfromDumont:

It ain't August until I hear "August".
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:12am Stuart Rose:

Couldn't agree more, William.
There's something uplifting- and a bit mystical and, because it's Arthur Lee, a bit cryptic- about August.
Great guitar riff that leads off verse.
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:15am steve:

Sweet young thing monkeys great was dozing at work and you just woke me up good morning bob
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:36am TimBrosnan:

Good morning Bob and fellow WFMU-ers. Greetings from Metuchen, NJ.
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:37am TimBrosnan:

Happy Birthday Jerry Garcia. Would have been 73 today. RIP.

Morning all!
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 9:44am WilliamfromDumont:

Jim Steinman...ugh!
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:45am MONEYBAG$:

There are no parentheses in this song title? Kind of surprising
Avatar Sat. 8/1/15 9:48am CZECHANO:

Was that Chris Christies campaign song?
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:55am David in ATL from NJ:

Nice choice, Bob!
  Sat. 8/1/15 9:58am Stuart Rose:

Come Saturday Morning, ah.
Beautiful, sweet song. I remember hearing this in elementary school and how it heightened my longing for that day when there was no school.

Hey, Bob, how about going on an Arthur Lee jag one of these days?
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:05am TimBrosnan:

I love that NRBQ track with Skeeter. She adds a whole extra dimension!
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:10am TimBrosnan:

I seem to recall that the Gilligan's Island theme song was recorded by The Welingtons but I remember it was re-done to include the Professor and Mary Ann!
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:11am bob in bushwood:

I always thought of Sterile Cuckoo as being as close as we'll ever get to a movie version of Catcher in the Rye
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:14am Listener Robert:

Are either of you referring to the calypso theme song used on the unaired pilot?
Avatar Sat. 8/1/15 10:14am Bob Brainen:

Yeah I think you're right Tim on G's Island. Sounds like the Sandpipers, but I guess many of those smooth harmony groups sound alike.
Avatar Sat. 8/1/15 10:15am Bob Brainen:

I wasn't Listener Robert-is it available?
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:18am TimBrosnan:

I've never heard the calypso version but wouldn't mind hearing it! Ever since Bob and Pete T spun that Van Dyke Parks track I've got calypso tunes in my head!!
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 10:20am WilliamfromDumont:

Really nice ti hear this new Banana stuff.
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:20am mrmucho:

Hi Bob, your opener today was as certain as the sun's rise. Enjoying the show as always.
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:32am Stuart Rose:

As bob's fine segues go, this Debussy into Dragonfly is especially fine.
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:35am mrmucho:

Bare Trees too, which is a fantastic LP
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:38am Listener Robert:

www.youtube.com... for the original unaired Gilligan's Is. opening.
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:42am Listener Robert:

How it got out, apparently -- www.youtube.com...
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:47am Listener Robert:

This one has the opening & CLOSING -- www.youtube.com...
  Sat. 8/1/15 10:50am Stuart Rose:

Is Dragonfly on any of the Mac albums?

Laura Nyro- maybe a Laura Nyro jag these next couple of months?
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/1/15 10:51am WilliamfromDumont:

I have Dragonfly on an old Greatest Hits U.K. import.
