Listener comments!

  9:10am Jack:

re: Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep. Wow! I was just this very second reading about this song on Nat Roe's blog post; I'd never heard of it.
  9:20am RedCap:

BB in da hizouse!
  9:23am SmokinJ:

Mornin' folks!
  9:31am Richard H:

Re.: "Mira Mira" I've known this song forever, as it appeared on an aircheck tape of Mad Daddy Meyers from the early '60s, but never knew who it was. Thanks, Bob!
  9:33am Richard H:

When's the 'great first albums' show scheduled?
  9:52am SmokinJ:

Looking at You=1968
  9:54am Jack:

Saw the MC5 in '69; "Looking at You" was a highlight I'll never forget;simply amazing!
  9:56am SmokinJ:

That they were Jack..
  10:00am Jack:

They really were, SmokinJ! And also "This Is A Man's World". And that was all after Iggy & The Stooges. My first concert - I was 16.
  10:03am SmokinJ:

I saw them and met them in 69 at a rock festival I was working at. I was 17. Nothing like Purple Owsley to enhance a memory :)
  10:03am Mike Sin:

Bob Brainen has some cool 45s! I always thought the MC5's version of "Looking at You" cut in the '60s sounded more like a '70s track, while their 1970 version sounded much more '60s-ish... if any of that makes any sense.
  10:08am Jack:

Mike: that 1970 studio version of "Looking at You" is goosebumpy stuff, although overall the album (unfortunately) sound funny? flat? A lot of great songs though...
  10:13am Peter K.:

I always thought "Come On-a My House," not "This Ole House," was the song Rosemary Clooney didn't want to record. That's the way the story is usually told, anyway. Or do I have it wrong? (P.S.: Great show, as always.)
  10:35am paul:

Reading the playlist while listening to Music for Reading.
  11:32pm Jay S:

Hey Bob, did you know there's a video of Norma Tanega doing "Walkin' My Cat Named Dog"?
