Sat. 12/30/17 9:05am David Rubien:
HNY, listening to Bob in real time for a change....
Sat. 12/30/17 9:06am dan:
Wintertime Love is such an underrated masterpiece by The Doors
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 9:06am melinda:
Hi Bob and everyone! Doors!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:08am SmokinJ:
Mornin' bb & group. Great Doors track. -2° and lovin' it.. 8-)
Sat. 12/30/17 9:09am David Rubien:
Been into Smokey and His Sister for years now thanks to Bob, and my 18-yr-old daughter loves them too!
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 9:10am melinda:
I learned of Smokey and His Sister here too, one of many great discoveries.
Sat. 12/30/17 9:11am DebbiefromCA:
Loved the Herman's Hermits!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:21am Jeff:
I may hate Mike Love, but “aren’t I glad” that he contributed to this gem!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:21am David Rubien:
Mining the '60s for gold....
Sat. 12/30/17 9:24am dan:
I don't like this hate for Mike Love. His jerky behavior should not intrude with his genius.
Sat. 12/30/17 9:25am WilliamfromDumont:
Morning B. and all. Much love for Love. Enough hate!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:26am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Canteloupe Island? Herbie nirvana!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:27am dan:
Herbie sure tickles those ivories good.
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 9:30am melinda:
I like Canteloupe Island. Someone else's version was the theme music for a Boston public radio talk show I used to listen to, forget the name.
Sat. 12/30/17 9:32am Doc Rock:
Good Morning Bob + Listeners
Mike Love Is A Jerk & Not A Genius
Brian Wilson IS A Genius!!
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 9:34am melinda:
Sat. 12/30/17 9:35am Jeff:
Hey Doc, didn’t want to get into it, but you’re right!
Happy New Year!
Sat. 12/30/17 9:39am dan:
One thing, Graham Gouldman is Ringo Starr's new bass player in the All Star Band
Sat. 12/30/17 9:47am David Rubien:
The great Bill Evans...
Sat. 12/30/17 9:47am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Every time I hear Bill Evans on piano I just melt in my seat. What a beautiful composition.
Sat. 12/30/17 9:48am debt collector:
Thank you for this bit of beauty (bill Evans)
Love from Burlington VT
Sat. 12/30/17 9:49am el_musgo:
I ALSO LOVE NY WINTERS.... i mean a enjoy it as much as summer.
Sat. 12/30/17 9:57am Jeff:
Bill Evans, Laura, Miles.....
Just brilliant, Bob!
Hey Doc, did you see Miles/Laura Nyro at Fillmore East?
Sat. 12/30/17 9:58am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Flamenco Sketches: I remember playing the Kind of Blue LP to death and thinking of this piece as "the last cut on side 2." Does that even register with listeners any more?
Sat. 12/30/17 9:59am WilliamfromDumont:
Nice set. It's hard to follow Peace Piece.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:06am Jeff:
Hey, did I ever tell you my friend Karen went upstate to sleep away camp in the early ‘60s. One of the camp counselors was a (very) young Laura Nyro. She used to sing to the kids!
Sat. 12/30/17 10:08am dan:
I grew up on Dandelion on repeat on an old cassette tape my parents played.

Jeff - Yes & Yes!!
Sat. 12/30/17 10:20am Jeff:
Hey, that very same Karen’s dad, Ruby, was one of the original partners in Gem Spa on 2nd and St Mark’s. He was there throughout the hey day of the Village and Fillmore East. EVERYONE hung out there!
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 10:20am Ken From Hyde Park:
Went outside to fetch the paper just now. It's 10F / -12C and a bit of new snow on the ground. It made that crunchy-crunch sound. Well, maybe that was my knees.
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 10:22am acid casualty:
Bob, really liked the rydell/checker version. Funny, I was just playing a 45 of that song by the orioles. Another good version. Don't know if that was original, tho.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:23am DebbiefromCA:
I'm dancing in my living room!!!
Sat. 12/30/17 10:28am David Rubien:
The Q tune arrives, and a great one. Can't wait to see them on Jan. 2.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:29am Jeff:
Anybody know how Joey Spampinato’s doing?
Sat. 12/30/17 10:33am Jeff:
Rascals, not Youngbloods
Sat. 12/30/17 10:38am Geoff in Ottawa:
Loving this. Saturday morning in my pyjamas in Ottawa. -20 C here right now. I'm not going out. Loved that Little Richard.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:43am Ian in Morewood:
Sat. 12/30/17 10:45am dan:
That Doris singer sounded a lot like Bonnie Tyler
Sat. 12/30/17 10:47am Geoff in Ottawa:
Hey, Ian. I hope you're staying warm!
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 10:47am acid casualty:
I saw a photo of water freezing mid-air in Ontario.
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 10:53am Mike Sin:
Been enjoying the show -- have a happy new year, Bob!
Sat. 12/30/17 10:54am dan:
2011 back to 1934. I like the time machine effect
🎃 Sat. 12/30/17 10:56am melinda:
I love Chirpy Chirpy.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:57am David Rubien:
This could be Bob's theme, if he ever gets tired of the other one.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:57am Bob Brainen:
Happy New Year, everyone!

Katie Kissoon who would go on to be a backup vocalist for Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, David Bowie and Van Morrison among others.
Sat. 12/30/17 10:59am 1whoknewcthulhu:
Am I the only person who thinks that "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" sounds exactly like Slade's "C'mon Feel the Noize"?
Sat. 12/30/17 11:01am David Rubien:
Great show, Bob, thanks.
Sat. 12/30/17 12:15pm mike east:
@johnk - I thought that was her! Very nice
