Sat. 12/17/16 10:12am melinda:
@tadpoles: haha! They are cute. When I googled flowerpot men I got a whole page of those puppets. The band members didn't wear costumes but they had nice threads typical of the times.
Sat. 12/17/16 10:22am JohnEBGood:
38 years with WFMU. Wow. Thank you for you for sharing your passion of music with us.

I thought Lee Dorsey was Terry Adams until I peaked.
Sat. 12/17/16 10:37am Superb Owl:
Reverse polarity is what goes into noise-cancelling headphones, so maybe the original recording was silent?
Sat. 12/17/16 10:37am Stuart Rose:
Yes, John, it's pretty amazing, and a damn fine gift to us that Bob's been doing this so long and so well.
Sat. 12/17/16 10:40am Hughie Considine:
I first discovered Bob's show in 1986 or so when he played a set full of Alex Chilton, the Meat Puppets, the Necessaries, and a bunch of other things that blew my mind. Still kind of miss the "Anyone Can Whistle" sign-off he retired some years ago, but you can't have everything.
Sat. 12/17/16 10:45am WilliamfromDumont:
Shirley Collins - amazing.
Sat. 12/17/16 10:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
