Now you’re playing the serious stuff - Howlin Wolf is very serious!

Hey there, Matt. Made no plans to boogie tonight but boogie woogie I shall.

Hey Matt hey everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Little Danny:

I love this early Junior Parker groove so much.
  7:24pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Hey Matt! Any week I hear “I Wanna Ramble”
twice on the airwaves is grand. I think the radio is crystallizing my inner wishes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm zito:

  7:27pm BenZ WPB:

First Howlin Wolf- now Mississippi Fred McDowell - this is a serious show!

Hit me with the current events!

"Why doesn't your Blues show focus on the happy stuff?" - Person who doesn't understand what the Blues means
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Listener Howard & the Cats:

The people who say "stick to the music" are just burying their heads in the sand. Right on, Matt! Keep doing what you're doing.
Avatar 7:32pm Mike W:

i might not be good at making fun of people, but here goes: umm...Clapton should die i think? #funny?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm the joke aisle:

Welcome back! Keep being you, Sir! Greetings and respect from SF, CA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm ultradamno:

Wait, making fun of Eric Clapton is on the table? Ooooooh maaaaaaaaaaan!!!!
  7:33pm Peter from Dover NJ:

GREAT commentary, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Pauly from Clifton:

Matt, sounding great! The more this gets into our collective consciousness, the better. Keep on!
Avatar 7:33pm Marshall Stacks:

Thank you, Matt.
  7:33pm J.:

Yeah man speak truth to power
Also F Clapton
  7:34pm Edward:

No apologies Matt, that was pitch perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks, Matt. Empathy is a good drug.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm chris in the redwoods:

what they all said. thanks, Matt. white supremacy must effing die.
Avatar 7:34pm On the Yazoo:

Hey yall.
Avatar 7:35pm TDK60:

Hi, blues DJ and listeners.
Avatar 7:36pm Jeff Moore:

Nope, what you're saying needs to be said loud and often. Because JFC, it's just murder after outrage after murder.
Avatar 7:37pm Mailman Tom:

Eric Clapton's nephew put together a band including Ginger Baker's son and Jack Bruce's son and called it the Music of Cream. Saw them play live at a local venue, and man, they were terrific!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Little Danny:

❤️❤️ Thanks Matt ❤️❤️
Avatar 7:39pm Mike W:

amazing Night Nurse v Babylon
  7:41pm Edward:

Not to extend this endlessly Matt but I loved your description of the kind of dork who thinks "I will go on this forum and fearlessly shitpost what all these other sheeple need to hear." You stated it perfectly. Now back to THE BLOOZE.
  7:42pm kev:

baa baa
  7:42pm BH:

I got home from a Baseball daygame a few hours ago and thought today was Thursday instead of Wednesday.

Also tomorrow is the Jackie Robinson Day in MLB.
  Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Ira:

At the risk of being controversial, Eric Clapton was great on the Johnny Cash Show, appropriately deferential to Carl Perkins and Johnny when they did Matchbox together. I'm not requesting Lay Down Sally, but I am finding it hard to be anti-Clapton these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Glistener MW:

I still can't think about Eric Clapton without imagining David Cross's A+ take on his "Tears in Heaven" in the Mr Show sketch "The Teardrop Awards"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Matt Fiveash:

That's OK Ira, but don't let it stop you from making fun of him
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm travis:

what a set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm PaulRobeson1920:

Good evening WFMU land!
Nice show Matt
  7:45pm Slaboch:

I can only hear this now as “Is It Because I’m Jewish” which is the way Syl autographed Todd-O-Phonic’s boxed set in the basement of Maxwell’s during Hanukkah. Great show as always Matt!
  7:45pm Christo:

Sad times we’re going through, same story over n over
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Ira, as you and I and about 50 others witnessed almost 23 years ago, ? and the Mysterians have no problem with EC.
  7:46pm Edward:

Clapton has had his moments of humanity, but I read the full text of his Enoch Powell rant and wonder whether there's another person anywhere that I would forgive after hearing that from them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Little Danny:

"Keep putting your foot on me." Wow. Hadn't heard that before.
  7:49pm georgia:

Gaylord, one of my fondest memories!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Little Danny:

You'll never believe this Matt but I was 95% sure Mingus was in tonight's queue.
  Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Ira:

Is it too late to request Lay Down Sally?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Little Danny:

Beautiful sax solo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Matt Fiveash:

Looking forward to Beers in Heaven with each and every one of you.
  Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Ira:

If not sooner.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm patrick321:

Hey Matt, I've been off the board on an extended work day but am really enjoying the show. Really good stuff. Thx!
Avatar 7:53pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Matt, everyone!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for expressing what really does need to be said

there was a young woman (high school? college?) in tears on the news over the Summer at one of the protests, "this is 2020!!! why is this still happening???"

i remember when MLK was murdered, i could not agree with her more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Matt Fiveash:

You've all been wonderful tonight! See ya next week...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Little Danny:

@Matt: Is this Mingus from Blues and Roots? I'm trying to lazily google my way to the personnel listing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

Mingus is kind of all the things
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Matt Fiveash:

Danny- It's from Mingus at Antibes. 1960
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm listener 126464:

Thanks Matt.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:55pm chris in the redwoods:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Little Danny:
