Hey Sem, sun shining here, hope it is where you are.

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

The first time I heard this I was convinced that it was Jeff Lynne.

I've been trying to convince Station Manager Ken to revive this song lately. At least someone was listening!
Avatar Sat. 3/25/17 9:56am Dano59:

A real high point -- The '90s had some great music. Mike Skinner, right?

Bob, you got me dancing around the kitchen and I haven't even had my coffee yet. Good morning!

I think Ken refers to it as the best Todd Rundgren song that's not Todd Rundgren.

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.

so good to hear this come back around on the guitar, i've been meaning to star=click it..

Gene Clark singing 'See the Sky About to Rain' on Byrds is one wonderful cover. He could write and cover. Great voice. Sad life.

That's Tony the Tiger singing with Rosemary Clooney?

  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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.

Thanks, Uncle Michael.

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!
Avatar Sat. 3/25/17 10:53am Dano59:

Apologies for my Mike Skinner guess - he's The Streets. New Radicals' mastermind is Gregg Alexander.

My god--The Turtles almost sound like The Zombies on this track!
