9:13am :Bob - this is so great - I love the Zappa version on 'Burnt Weeny Sandwich' - I had no idea 'WPLJ' was a cover! 9:16am :Hi from the UK. I've just switched on the laptop and straightway there's Wynonie Harris - resuilt. Will continue listening whilst packing for my holiday. 9:19am :good morning bob just got back from seeing the film horrible bosses
and now i have your great show to listen to the day just gets better :)
9:24am :morning all 9:27am :rod stewart is an underated background singer 9:28am :rod stewart is an underated background singer 9:31am :happy Saturday FMUers! 9:38am :Hey Bob! Hey listeners! Rather special opening set Bob - my 18 yo son has been turning me on to Nick Drake recently. Because Tom is into the stuff I listened to way back, his mates call him 'retro'! Raining cats and dogs here under a nation wide slab of slate-grey cloud. 9:40am :Good tracks Bob! 9:41am :Its surprising how many teenagers and people in the 20's in the uk love 1960's and 70's music. 9:44am :That IS the best Grass Roots tune bb! Thanks! 9:47am :Enjoy the show folks, bye Bob, gotta get going somewhere. Looking forward to catching up with this one in the archives. Love wfmu. 9:49am :I agree with Smokin' - fantastic Grass Roots choice - and the young lady singing now - very far out - great show BB!! 10:00am :Garnet Mimms - Cry Baby, one of the greatest songs ever. 10:02am :Listener Bill is correct. One of the best songs ever produced. 10:05am :Mott producer Guy Stevens, of whom the Rolling Stones waxed sarcastic in the fine print of 'Sticky Fingers,' probably owing to Stevens' attempt to create a Stones-like atmosphere of depravity in the studio during Mott's 'Brain Capers' sessions. 10:14am :FYI, the title "Viva Seatac" refers to the Seattle-Tacoma area. I think "Seatac" is the official abbreviation for the airport there. (In fact, I think the chorus to that song begins "Viva Seattle-Tacoma, viva viva Seatac.") Robyn Hitchcock's lyrics and titles are not always as mysterious as they seem. 10:22am :Todd -- wow! 10:23am :Cheers for the music Bob. i've got to go out now and pick up a jacket from the dry cleaners. 10:37am :Larry Coryell did a very nice recording of "Jade Visions" too. Great tune! 10:47am :oh yeah 10:59am :Some people have even started using "Seatac" in addresses. 2:26am :Hi Bob, Love you man, you're the best. Thank you as always for supporting The Left Banke - Tom Finn
