9:05am david:Always disliked S & C but never really "heard"
them before you played them, Bob.
9:06am david:That's a compliment, by the way! 9:08am Jesse:Mornin Bob Jim & Dash ,what talent I only whish I could have seen them perform live.Thaks for playing them the memories ! 9:15am JoeChrisMorris:Hey! play some Kirsty brother!!
Like what I'm hearing mate (and its almost time for Car Talk at noon on NPR!)
9:27am dale:morning mr. dj. i'd love to hear what jimmy and dash sounded like with glen campbell sometime. they really tried it all, from the champs to country to am softrock, and dash back to country in the 80s 9:52am Jesse:Bob Im sitting here listining to your show and during your playlist review you usualy have some type of bacground music. Im listening to you on bose 701 speakers, and when that plane went by I thought to my self mn that plane outside is flyin low. Then you said the plane , I thought I was cracking up. Bob you sound lile you are outside , I in the middle of a highway near an airport I even thought that I heard a bus go by? 10:04am dale:also sounds like the pip pip pip of a shortwave time station. 10:16am dale:very 'sally go round the roses', this jaynetts. 10:17am dale:oh, i see the album title now.... 10:22am Andy from Atlanta:This song is playing during the moment I realized how incredible Pixar is. 10:23am Parq:Morning, Bob. I joined the party just in time for "Sunday Clothes". I suddenly have a strange urge to clean up trash and look for a girl named Eve. 10:36am Mark:Hey Bob! Have ya heard the She & Him cover of Ridin' in My Car? Assuming Mr. Shelley will be spinning today. 10:39am A.J.Cabanellas:Armstead is Josie Armstead of the Ikettes. Josie recorded for labels as an artist herself. Last time I interviewed her for KDHX FM 88 in St.Louis, she was a manager for a boxer. 10:45am dale:love this. i assume this is shortly after the magnificent moodies period. that's some great stuff to track down if you don't have it, acquired taste, but good. 5:41pm LOU RUSSO:"Ridin' thumb" is a great track!!! Don't believe the bull shit and keep playin' them.... no one else does.
Bob, totally "Heavy" psychedelic set... far out dude! I think I relived a "mesc" trip from 1969, at work today... thanks for the memories.
"Steal away" is a great track and performance, but did you notice the similar chords and melody from "Look for a silver lining"? There's one "style' chord different in the theme.
Surprisingly good Noel Harrison tracks. Peepin' In And Out The Window, sounds like a "bizzaro" Momma Cass doesn't it? -LuWeege
