Listener comments!

Good mornin', good mornin' to you.
  9:15am tomB:

never realized Fairport pulled fr Beach Boys, but Bob, you pinned it.
  9:21am pierre:

Bonjour Everyone,
Bonjour Bob Brainen

Happy Radio Day everyone at WFMU !
  9:25am yair yona (tel aviv):

just joined and I get Pentangle to welcome me. it is going to be a good day.
  9:30am SmokinJ:

Happy muthas day all you muthas.. 8-)
  9:33am Muppet Mutha:

Soul Searchin' sounds like Sunny Day from Sesame Street.
  9:34am tony:

Also Derby Day and Comic Book Day
  9:34am Joe Morris:

Hi Bob

Joe Morris here
did you ever find out who sang that song "You;ve got a lot to explain" btw?
  9:34am yair yona (tel aviv):

it's my favorite as well!
  9:43am yair yona (tel aviv):

was steward in National Health as well?
  9:47am scott:

The Beach Boys Smile set is supposedly coming out in July. This is very happy news, of course, but it's a shame that it's coming out after Brian's rerecorded version. The release of Smile should be a major event, but I'm afraid that the timing will make this a bit of an anticlimax.
  9:48am tomB:

Was Holsapple writing about a Cowsills single?
  9:55am miketp:

bob pretty amazing opening 50 min of the show. was blown away. youre the best. great weedend
  10:20am seang:

do you listen to Nellie McKay, Bob?
  10:21am scott:

Always loved the Spoonful's appearance playing "Fishin' Blues" in Woody Allen's What's Up Tiger Lily? Apparently Woody hates the movie and says that the Spoonful's scenes were inserted by the producer without his approval. But it's a great flick, Spoonful and all, no matter what he says...
  10:38am clarke:

Picture Sleeve is a Chris Stamey song - so it is not about Cowsills. it is about several different records.
  10:43am clarke:

just woke up and looking at the playlist - i missed most of another fine, fine show.....
oh, it is quite unlikely that Holsapple would be writing about The Cowsills, at this late date, anyway.;]
  10:43am paul:

You do span the musically globe, Mr. B.
  10:53am seang:

  10:53am Moammar:

JJ Jackson's high point. After this -- MTV. And I speak for us all when I say Martha Quinn had much more going on.
  11:08am Freddy:

Supposedly Monk (and his father) were named after an actual 7th century Monk named Hilonius.
And North Coast Brewing sells a Brother Thelonious
Belgian Style Abbey Ale, the sale of which benefits Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz ....the label art is great:
