Listener comments!

  9:03am annie:

good morning!!!!!!
  9:16am Scott:

Hi Bob, thanks for playing "Sausalito Summernight." It was an airplay hit for, like, a week or two on WLIR when I was a kid. Haven't heard it in about thirty years but it's etched in my memory. Interesting to note that the only two songs I know with Sausalito in the title were by foreigners. I believe Diesel were Dutch, and the other one is "Sausalito Is the Place to Go," which is credited to the Ohio Express but which I think was recorded by Graham Gouldman and some English guys.
  9:18am Scott:

PS, if I remember correctly, "Straight Arrow" by Spirit was inspired by bassist Mark Andes' actor dad Keith Andes, after the band went to see him perform in the lead of a production of "Man of La Mancha."
  9:26am Zebtron A. Rama:

Yo La Tengo destroyed Burlington last week. Double or Triple was amazing live.
  9:36am Jesse:

good morning BOB you play the best stuff. and aint no slob Bob Keep on playin Thanks.
  9:53am wht:

MsGaskill played the Ohio Express Sausalito number last week. Co-inkidink?
  9:54am Scott:

Speaking of Sandy Becker and "Hambone," he was so popular with kids in the New York area that his use of Red Saunders' version of "Hambone"inspired Okeh Records to reissue it as a single in the early '60s. Enough kids bought it that it actually became a local hit, despite the record being a decade old at the time.
  9:57am listener rey:

that Leo Watson thing was wild. Watson was voice of Prince Chawmin' in WB cartoon "Coal Black and the Sebben Dwarfs"
  10:09am bartleby:

Just add -entwistle to the search string
  10:09am Mike Sin:

"The Duchess" was Bo Diddley's guitarist... I think "institution" fits for "insane asylum" these days.
  10:09am Scott:

Sandy Becker was also the voice of Mr. Wizard in the old King Leonardo cartoons. Bo Diddley's best known female guitarists were the Dutchess and Lady Bo
  10:10am bartelby:

right but with a minus sign in front of it
  10:12am david:

Hey, hey, hey. Copeland is actual MUSIC, not a "needle drop" background for an extended DJ. Use Yanni or Kenny G if need something in the background.
  10:41am samantha:

Hey, you can use whatever you want as foreground or background music. This is America!
  10:43am postmanpaul:

...did i hear 'postman' being metioned!
  10:45am annie:

PMP!!! word, how the hell are ya??
  10:47am Parq:

Joining in just for the tail end, but had to pipe up to say what a smile the chat about Sandy Becker brought to my face. I have such fond memories of that show, and I almost never meet anyone who remembers him.
  10:47am postmanpaul:

  12:55pm joe:
