Christmas funk, yeah.
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:04am annie:
i watched that netflix short series "Wormwood".... i was not impressed overall. sesationalized and drawn-out show about the cia and lsd experimentation. lots left out i bet.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:06am Jeff:
Nice that JB was always name checking Bobby Byrd; would’ve been nicer if he paid him!
Good Morning and Merry Xmas y’all!

Love love love that album. Thank you for not playing the Monkees cover
Sat. 12/23/17 9:17am 1whoknewcthulhu:
I know that this is normally Gaylord's bag, but Bob is definitely cranking tunes this morning to celebrate the winter SOULstice.
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:17am Scraps:
(not that it’s bad; it’s the least of the songs, is all)

i have no idea what i'm hearing... it's not music.. it sounds like a movie; did the stream jump to something else? is this saturday? my mind is muddled this morning.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:24am Jeff:
Is there a Doc Rock in the house?
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:26am duke:
@annie more caffeine is the answer
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:27am annie:
i'll try that... but the playlist does NOT match what i'm hearing. so, fine..
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:27am WilliamfromDumont:
Kwanza was the first Shepp LP I picked up. Kind of a mixed bag with funky soul like this and free blowing like New Africa.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:27am Doc Rock:
Good Morning Bob + Listeners Good Soulful Sat. To All. Hey Jeff!! Breakfast Time!!
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:29am WilliamfromDumont:

Greetings of the season to you all! Love Bob's show on Saturday morning. My WFMU-FM sticker arrived in the post yesterday. It's on my car for all in So Cal to know about a real radio station.
♥ Sat. 12/23/17 9:36am annie:
so, the stream jumped to the last bit of moonlight sonatas and now i'm hearing the beginning bits of jeffrey's show.. guess i'll reboot the pop-up... very odd

Re: The Flirtations — there is an LP. Title is “Nothing But a Heartache”, from 1969 on Deram.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:42am 1whoknewcthulhu:
THE FLIRTATIONS: check out Amazon, Bob. They list the album SOUNDS LIKE THE FLIRTATIONS with the song "Nothing but a Heartache."

Used to play with a drummer from Woodstock who did pick-up gigs with Rudd playing dixieland at all the Catskill hotels.

annie that has happened to me before.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:48am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Incredible to know that Laura Nyro was only 21--possibly younger--when she cut this track.
Sat. 12/23/17 9:49am will from croton:
This is the wildest Laura track
Thank you Bob as always
Sat. 12/23/17 9:53am Doc Rock:
