Hi James, Hi Everybody!

Haha! The professor asked us to bring our laptops to class. But I am Fiveashing instead of note-taking. Haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 2:15pm Jeff Golick:

...and that is how you do the Mess Around, @Doug.

Hi Matt and Matters.

Houserockers!

First I Look at the Purse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 2:33pm Jeff Golick:

I loved learning recently that U2 opened for J. Geils at one point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 2:38pm Jeff Golick:

I'm sorry for ruining today's comments section, Matt.
I do have that certain something when it comes to ending conversations.
Avatar    Thu. 4/13/17 2:39pm Matt F:

I just assumed there was no one else here! No Worries Jeff!

Hi Dinky, WCOZ for life!
Avatar    Thu. 4/13/17 2:43pm Matt F:

"Crank It Up!" oh wait, that was WAAF.
  Thu. 4/13/17 2:44pm JARO:

I should've listened closer as a youth instead of just going the knee-jerk punk attitude route to what I thought was cheezy commercial rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 2:44pm Jeff Golick:

I still have Big Mattress flashbacks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 2:47pm Parq:

I really need this set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/13/17 2:57pm doctorjazz:

don't think I've heard this "Land of 1000 Dances", cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:01pm Parq:

Regrettably, all of the news stories portrayed them as an 80s band who happened to have some obsucre early stuff of some kind or other in prior years. Hey, I dig "Centerfold", but to handwave everything they did before that? Sheesh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:02pm Jeff Golick:

It's like the band was stuck in some kind of freeze frame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:05pm Parq:

Touche!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:09pm Little Danny:

Heckuva show so far Matt!
Avatar    Thu. 4/13/17 3:10pm Matt F:

Thx Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/13/17 3:17pm doctorjazz:

Great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:18pm Jeff Golick:

I'd forgotten just how ugly the Freeze Frame LP cover art was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/13/17 3:20pm doctorjazz:

I first heard this Valentinos version of Lookin for a Love on FMU (?this show? Think so). It is just fabulous (though Giles did a great job with it).
  Thu. 4/13/17 3:23pm Miss Georgia Peach:

More more more!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:24pm Jeff Golick:

The words "reputa the beauta" will be forever lodged in my prefrontal cortex. (Thanks, probably, to WBCN.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:24pm Artie Haywire:

Famous for the wrong things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:25pm Jeff Golick:

Single ending!
  Thu. 4/13/17 3:30pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Just got Jim Dickinson memoir in today's mail--hope there's a Carmen McRae/Dixie Flyers section.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 3:31pm Monica:

don't squeeze the carmen, matt!
Avatar    Thu. 4/13/17 3:31pm Matt F:

Itchin' to read that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:34pm Parq:

Monica, not *that* well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:38pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks for the Dickinson memoir tip. The chapter on him from Robert Gordon's IT CAME FROM MEMPHIS is fascinating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 3:47pm listener james from westwood:

Burton and the track that follows are a weekly highlight for me, in case nobody's emerged from the woodwork yet and praised this mini jazz break amid the killer 7-inches.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 3:47pm Dominick:

Arrgh! missing show due to Avid upgrade SNAFU
Will have to mine the archive later
  Thu. 4/13/17 3:47pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

The "McRae section" is barely two pages long, but it's got some good meat on it and was clearly one of JLD's favorite things that he and the Dixie Flyers played on. An odd but inspired pairing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/13/17 3:59pm doctorjazz:

Great way to end, Great concert track! See you next time!
Avatar    Thu. 4/13/17 4:01pm Matt F:

Thanks everybody. Next time indeed.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 4:02pm Monica:

another great one. thx, matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 4:03pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Matt, always a blast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/13/17 4:04pm Artie Haywire:

Great show. Thanks, Matt!
