What was that, a 2-bar bass solo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/19/15 12:15am JakeGould:

No Maple. The Blue Jays lost. No syrup for them.

I still have the Jays and Cubs in the series. Cubs win, Chicago burns down again.

Weird mix, bass front.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 12:20am Gaylord Fields:

And to think that on Michael Shelley's show yesterday, John Doe claimed that Paul McCartney doesn't have an iota of weird in him.

Hey, thank you, Therese! Been looking for these Eno covers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 12:21am Therese:

John Doe has obviously never listened to McCartney II.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 12:21am coelacanth:

(that was a good holy crap.)
  Mon. 10/19/15 12:22am cheri:

BGZ, HA!! Nice one!
  Mon. 10/19/15 12:23am Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Happy early Monday, Therese! Thanks for gracing our death-of-the-weekend once more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/19/15 12:24am pacific standard simon:

Anyone who smokes as much doobie as Sir Paul is bound to have a fair amount of weird in him.

Don't you know I'm loco?!?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 12:27am Gaylord Fields:

@Therese: Funny thing is that I suspect John Doe might like McCartney II (the absolute kush-iest of Paul overtly pot-influenced records) despite himself.
  Mon. 10/19/15 12:29am cheri:

therese, Gaylord, thanks for being here for us!

Ah, I love this Bolan number! Didn't realize that it was a single.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 12:38am Gaylord Fields:

That Marc Bolan song brings me back to the Peppermint Lounge, early 1980s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/19/15 12:38am pacific standard simon:

@Gaylord - Looking forward to checking out today's show from the archives. That kind of music played a big part in my early development.
  Mon. 10/19/15 12:39am cheri:

i'm very sorry I missed your show Gaylord.

(confidential to Joe B- I didn't bring any Neil Young with me.)

@Joe B - I would probably have to pledge to that on principle, but I doubt that many others would, Just keep doing what you do.

Shouldn't have never met a sweety
He shouldn't have never met me
Shouldn't have never met a sweety
Shouldn't have never met me
Now his memory has got a history

He was a real cool cat
And wore a high top hat
He was a real cool cat
And wore a high top hat

He was a real cool cat
All the girls loved that

I picked up my gun
And I went to his door
I picked up my gun
And I went to his door
Now Mr. Lee can tell me no more

He hollered help, help
Murder, police
The girl's after me with a gun
Hollered help, help, murder, police
The girl's after me with a gun

Six, seven, eight
Mr. Lee had a date
Nine, ten, eleven
Now he's up in heaven

Shot him in the head
Boom boom, whoa oh
Shot him in the head
Boom boom, whoa oh

Shot him in the head
Boom boom, whoa oh
Shot him in the head
Boom boom, whoa oh

Shot him in the head
Boom boom, whoa oh
Shot him in the head
