  9:45am SmokinJ:

Hey! It's a party!
  9:48am Dave:

Wow the Left Banke who did "Walk Away Rene". They had completely dropped put of my memory banke. Wiki says they were practitioners of what was known a baroque pop meaning lots of background strings.
  9:53am mike ret tp:

  9:54am mike ret tp:

im up for one of those special cookies
  9:58am Listener Bill:

This is an amazing version of the Just My Imagination. Never heard it before. Better than the original version.
  9:59am Dave:

I had one hell of a day after eating a special brownie
  10:01am drr:

I think that was the original version of Just My Imagination, with the music removed.
  10:09am nancy:

  10:09am Burbling Stream:

  10:26am turtle boy:

Killer Hermits tune - Greets from Worcester, MA
  10:28am Wendy del Formaggio:

Worcester! Home of Coney Island Hot Dog!
  10:32am Jack:

Hey Bob! ( and SmokinJ )
Great show as always...
  10:34am SmokinJ:

Hi Jack! hehe
  10:37am turtle boy:

Yes Wendy, still with the big neon sign and cool graffiti permanently embedded in the booths from the 60's. Maybe I'll get 4 with all today...
  10:43am Wendy del Formaggio:

Turtle Boy, now you're talkin'! *burp* haha.
Is the bar next door still there? I think it's called Harold's. I'm not much of a bar person, but the look of the place always fascinated me. Frozen in time, in a great way :-)
  10:44am seang:

Did Mort Shuman write this tune? or Doc Pomus?
  10:47am turtle boy:

There's a tiny bar in the place but not next door. Tiny as in 6 or 7 seats. When I get my dogs, I do Polar Cream Soda anyway...
  10:54am Wendy del Formaggio:

Hmm, I must be getting my wires crossed. Whoops! Wow, I haven't had a cream soda in ages. Root beer, well that's a different story :-)
If you ever make it down to Jersey and are in need of a good hot dog or four, may I recommend Rutt's Hutt in Clifton and Hot Dog Johnny's in Buttzville (yes, Buttzville).
  10:58am turtle boy:

Thanks Wendy! May all your dogs be tasty...
