Bob Brown & Friends Live on WFMU
Live performance and chat with Bob Brown
 
After releasing two albums of fragile, orchestral folk tunes in the early 1970's, Bob Brown essentially left the music business. Both albums, "The Wall I Built Myself" and "Willoughby’s Lament," were originally released on Richie Havens’ Stormy Forest label and disappeared after a couple of big-label mergers. Brown had some success as a studio musician, but eventually turned away from that after a few too many setbacks. Jump ahead to 2016 and the Tompkins Square label has reissued both. In celebration, Bob Brown along with Wall Matthews (piano, guitar) and Anton Hatwich (upright bass), played live on Irene's show in advance of a gig at Joe's Pub.

greetings Irene and others

I confess before WFMU i was totally ignorant of the lovely Bridget. The other day she invoked memories of Nico.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/28/16 11:10pm coelacanth:

i think i learn about some artist that's been around for years every few weeks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/28/16 11:11pm melinda:

Me too, coelecanth. Pretty sure I learned of Bridget St. John here, as well.
  Tue. 6/28/16 11:11pm Tommy:

I could have sworn that was Pierce Turner ...are you familiar with him
Avatar Tue. 6/28/16 11:15pm geezerette:

Echoing all the other listeners. Irene your show is such a sweet soft landing at day's end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/28/16 11:16pm coelacanth:

i joined a record club when i was little, in the 70s. i remember Bridget St. John from the catalogue but i knew it was much too mellow for my tastes then.
...i wasn't actually "turned-on" to her music until within the last few years -via wfmu... now that i'm ready for it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/28/16 11:20pm Michael 98145:

This station seems to be singlehandedly undoing the failure of radio. ... No, IS .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/28/16 11:20pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks everybody! I'm constantly discovering wonderful people like Bob Brown, who I have a dim memory of hearing long ago on the radio. I'm grateful that I have an outlet like WFMU, where I can foist these wonderfully indulgent shows on you listeners-- and find an appreciative audience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/28/16 11:20pm Michael 98145:

Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/28/16 11:37pm Michael 98145:

I was lucky enough to see Nico before her tragic accident.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/28/16 11:38pm coelacanth:

whoh. holy crap -i wasn't listening that closely.
extraordinary.

i would like to be holding my mother's hand when she says fuck this... it's probably not going to be the case.
