Morning Bob & everyone!
Sat. 5/28/16 9:12am Jack:
As much as I love Peter Green, "Kiln House" is my favorite Fleetwood Mac album.

The High Llamas sounded sort of like it came from a different decade.
Sat. 5/28/16 9:50am mrmucho:
hi Bob, been enjoying the Kirwin tribute these last few weeks.
Sat. 5/28/16 9:54am Debbie:
Thanks, Bob for playing music I haven't heard in a long time!! Great Saturday show.
Sat. 5/28/16 10:06am SmokinJ:
Still diggin' this O'Connell cat... 8-)
Sat. 5/28/16 10:11am Stuart Rose:
Hey, SmokinJ, Mr. O'Connell's a tuneful bastard, isn't he?
Good lyric writer, too.
Sat. 5/28/16 10:12am coelacanth:
greetings Bob and all
...sadly missed Terry Reid and Green/Kirwan Mac, but Thanks for playing it.
Sat. 5/28/16 10:18am Stuart Rose:
I'm not always crazy about Greenburger's pieces, but this is a very affecting one.
Sat. 5/28/16 10:21am SmokinJ:
Stuart Rose: You nailed it bro'...
Sat. 5/28/16 10:25am Mike W:
this Make A Rising track is incredible!!!
Sat. 5/28/16 10:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...well - you're never sure if Greenberger's 'reading' is ironic or not - but I think he's basically interested in & sympathetic to all these people...
Sat. 5/28/16 10:42am Stuart Rose:
Rev, I think you're right. He's basically respects these people and cares about their stories and what they mean to them.
And there's no irony in his voice when it comes to the hard luck/overcoming tales- which really work because they're not slathered in sentiment.
Sat. 5/28/16 10:43am Mike W:
this Kessinger Bros track would be fantastic getaway-music
Sat. 5/28/16 10:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Right - otherwise why bother?
Sat. 5/28/16 10:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
@MikeW: Music for when cars were pretty new? The Means of Transportation = Music Rhythms & Sounds Theory (horses, trains, cars, jets...) RagTime woulda been more trainlike earlier?
Sat. 5/28/16 10:52am Debbie:
Laura Nyro and LaBelle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sat. 5/28/16 10:58am Marc Francis:
