Morning Bob, and fellow listeners!
  Sat. 5/21/16 9:07am Jeff:

I'm going to London in a few days.
Maybe I'll try to look for Danny Kirwan.
Then again, I might be better off listening to Bare Trees.
Thanks Bob!

Is that Sneaky Pete? Just got my FMU goodies yesterday. Digging your cd Bob. Great stuff.
  Sat. 5/21/16 9:10am Stuart Rose:

Very sad what happened to Danny Kirwan, Jeff. I wonder if he knows what pleasure his music still gives.

wow this brook benton track!

Aloha Bob and Saturday folks
  Sat. 5/21/16 9:24am Jeff:

Stuart, I agree wholeheartedly.
Besides, the seeming sadness of Danny's life, it really hurts how forgotten he is.

Always nice to hear Spanky & Our Gang.

Muggy afternoon hello from London.
  Sat. 5/21/16 10:31am Joe:

This is such a great show! There were some lame ones in the past that made me tune out FMU on Saturday mornings for quite a while. Today I thought I'd check back in and am delighted to discover this show, Bravo!
  Sat. 5/21/16 10:36am Mike W:

I love waking up to the "frogs and more frogs" -- that's become such a staple of my every Saturday morning (along with the great tracks). Thanks, Bob!!

Thanks for revisiting Todd's early albums Bob. I love hearing these tunes on the "radio" again via fmu's live stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/21/16 10:47am melinda:

This is my favorite song on Gonna Take a Miracle. Thanks!
  Sat. 5/21/16 10:55am Stuart Rose:

The guitar riff of the Taj Mahal song sounded like the riff of a Searchers song- Every time that you walk in the room?

"Giles, Giles, Fripp, frogs, and more frogs" ^__^
