Good morning, Bob and all. Looking forward to some music sunshine to brighten up this dreary Saturday in the NYC metro area. Procol Harum is a good start.

Mornin' Mr. B and all. I think the only Harum Trower isn't on is A Whiter Shade of Pale. I may be wrong about that though.

I like the surfing tuba

Loved hearing "The Devil Came From Kansas" kick off the show.

Hey Bob and FOB! Love Procol Harum. Thanks for the great Saturday show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 9:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The 'Love Is the Song We Sing' box (more like a beautiful high school yearbook design...) actually makes the comparison & contrast between the big in-town SF Psych acts & the neighboring Bay Area town Garage (ProtoPunk) acts - concluding it really is a legless distinction...
  Sat. 5/6/17 9:53am RHenderson:

Always wanted to like Let's Active more than I ultimately did. Might have been the too bright reverb coating everything, or perhaps I reacted against Mitch's vocals and/or lyrics, never certain. Very glad to see Mitch in the Big Star doc, though.
  Sat. 5/6/17 10:00am brycepunk1:

That sounded so much like Techno-Animal in the intro...

Sound Exchange, Rt 23! It's still there

Let's Active was one of my favorite, under-rated bands in the 80's that I would play when I was a college dj.

You're brightening a cloud morning in Maryland. Bob. Thanks for the "Ballad of the Sad Young Men." Rickie Lee Jones (on Pop Pop) turned me on to that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 10:55am JohnEBGood:

Is this the worse song ever?

Great Playboys track!
