Hail Hail Chuck...
Sat. 3/25/17 9:41am Brian in UK:
Hello Bob. Yes, Promised Land. See you at the Terminal Gate.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:44am duke:
I love the word play in Chuck's songs: coolerator, motivatin' over the hill.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:44am Andy in Etobicoke:
Exquisite choice. Underrated. Thank you.
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 9:46am Sem Chumbo:
Hello, Bob, and the Brainen Bunch.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:47am Brian in UK:
Love Johnny Allen's Promised Land.
Hey Sem, sun shining here, hope it is where you are.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:48am fred:
I often chuckle at the "c'est la vie" line, thinking how wild it would be for Chuck Berry to sneak in a reference to Rrose Sélavy
Sat. 3/25/17 9:49am annie:
feel free to play piano all morning bob..
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 9:51am Sem Chumbo:
K: a delightful sunny day here, just back from a long walk to the winter farmers' Market. Now shouting encouragement to my garlic from the deck.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:54am Buckaroo:
The first time I heard this I was convinced that it was Jeff Lynne.
Sat. 3/25/17 9:56am Roberto:
I've been trying to convince Station Manager Ken to revive this song lately. At least someone was listening!
Sat. 3/25/17 9:56am Dano59:
A real high point -- The '90s had some great music. Mike Skinner, right?
Sat. 3/25/17 9:56am Deek:
I always thought it was the Waterboys
Sat. 3/25/17 9:57am hopewithfeathers:
Bob, you got me dancing around the kitchen and I haven't even had my coffee yet. Good morning!
Sat. 3/25/17 9:57am Roberto:
I think Ken refers to it as the best Todd Rundgren song that's not Todd Rundgren.
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 9:58am Sem Chumbo:
@@hopewithfeathers: love the name.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:00am hopewithfeathers:
Thanks! @SemChumbo. Goes with my costume ;)
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 10:04am Ken From Hyde Park:
SM Ken usually plays New Radicals during the marathon, but not this year, to my recollection.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:10am pp:
noticed that the intro to Katy Perry's song Firework sounds like the New Radicals You Give What You Get. But it gets worse, Perry's entire song Teenage Dream sounds exactly like YGWYG. That's a definition of a formula.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:12am annie:
so good to hear this come back around on the guitar, i've been meaning to star=click it..
Sat. 3/25/17 10:13am WilliamfromDumont:
Is it possible that Gene Clark had more unreleased material than any other artist?
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 10:13am fm Mike:
Mornin' all :D
Sat. 3/25/17 10:13am Uncle Michael:
Thurl! Best version!
Sat. 3/25/17 10:13am Brian in UK:
Gene Clark singing 'See the Sky About to Rain' on Byrds is one wonderful cover. He could write and cover. Great voice. Sad life.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:15am Ralphine:
That's Tony the Tiger singing with Rosemary Clooney?
♥ Sat. 3/25/17 10:15am fm Mike:
Mmm, I dig this sound!
Sat. 3/25/17 10:15am KP:
Thanks for Gene & Burritos. It's a great set on Sierra.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:15am Brian in UK:
This is grrrrreat.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:15am WilliamfromDumont:
Linda Ronstadt did a fine cover of She Darked the Sun.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:16am Uncle Michael:
Yes it is, Ralphine. Thurl Ravenscroft.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:17am ?:
Shakin' Stevens did a great version of This Old House.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:20am Brian in UK:
Think we have all been there, Lee.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:20am RHenderson:
I'd forgotten this was re-made as a Coke commercial.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:22am annie:
whenever i hear a smooth lick like this i check to see..... yep tadd dameron.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:29am Stuart Rose:
Some fine melodies on today's show, coming from Bob's usual quilt of genres.
Yes, Annie, Dameron is one elegant bebopper.
I am having some real trouble with the app, though.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:39am annie:
from IMDb, re: "The Hired Hand": If you're into film that has to have a cut every 3 seconds to stay interesting, skip this one. But if you're into film as an art form, this is a must see.
The photography is masterful by Vilmos Zsigmond. From the deeply rich silhouettes made with the natural light of a sunset to the shading and textures of lamp and fire light, this film is a profound lesson in painting with light.
The montage scenes blend the beautiful images into a pensive and graceful passage of time. The editing creates a deliberate pace that recreates a time when a horse trot was the natural speed. But when the gun battles begin the pace quickens to a gallop.
The delicate music is perfect blend of instruments for the visuals and provides the emotional depth that music should.
Under Peter Fonda's creative direction the film's elements deliver a story of a man who returns home to make things right because he had the courage to change. And just when the man and his wife restore their love and trust in each other, he had the courage go away again to save his longtime friend.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:42am Ralphine:
Thanks, Uncle Michael.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:43am chicago yak:
Hey Bob- The bass voice on This Ole House is Thurl Ravenscroft of Tony The Tiger/Mr. Grinch fame.....the usual stellar show today, sir!
Sat. 3/25/17 10:53am Dano59:
Apologies for my Mike Skinner guess - he's The Streets. New Radicals' mastermind is Gregg Alexander.
Sat. 3/25/17 10:54am 1whoknewcthulhu:
My god--The Turtles almost sound like The Zombies on this track!
Sat. 3/25/17 11:00am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
