Moog morning, everyone! Welcome to the show!
Avatar    Mon. 4/24/17 9:17am Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey Joe and everyone. Back in college I interviewed Dick Hyman's daughter (Judy Hyman of the Horse Flies) for our school paper. It was such a cool, fun interview and she obviously learned a lot from her dad. But due to some miscommunications between me and the editors, the piece never made it into the paper. So I feel a pang of guilt every time I hear Dick Hyman, or the Horse Flies.

Hey Joe. Just been playing the Beatles Red album, In My Life has to be one of the most amazing songs written by someone under twenty five.

Thought this was a 1965 tribute at first (best year for pop?)
Avatar    Mon. 4/24/17 9:26am PKNY:

No version of "Apache" will ever top the Incredible Bongo Band, but I gotta admit I'm a sucker for any version of this song, especially Moog-y ones.

I'm listening at work but until this track is over I will be useless. I am completely enthralled.

what's toasting?
Avatar Mon. 4/24/17 11:24am Switchblade Batman:

I was wondering too @Miles
Avatar Mon. 4/24/17 11:26am Joe McG:

"Toasting" is what they used to call the DJ interjections on Jamaican records. Jamaican rapping, I guess you'd say.

Jackie Edwards was a big influence on the young Stevie Winwood via Chris Blackwell. First 2 Spencer Davis Group hits were covers of Jackie Edward's songs.

You know, of course, you could play reggae all day and I'd never change the station. Great show.

@Miles: it's when the DJ or just an MC speaks over the record, often to exhort the crowd. Sometimes its comic, sometimes to shout out a town, sometimes to boast of one's musical prowess, and also to critique/castigate one's enemies. The best do so in rhyme and growly yet melodic cadences. Some guys became straight up toasters, and recordings of their toasting became in demand. U-Roy was the master of this.

This stuff is so good! Thanks Joe and Bill.
Avatar Mon. 4/24/17 11:38am Joe McG:

What a Day... thanks guys!

U-Roy may have been the master, but possibly my 2 favorite toasting tracks are Lee Perry. ("dreader locks" and his rap on the gatherers' "words"..."lion a de winner"[?])

Nora Dean is the only female in reggae that i've thought was worth a second listen. i have to give a listen to Veronica Adams.
