Tell us a little bit about this Sun Ra remix cd, Bob if you would. Thanks.
  9:14am Wocky:

Oh, Brainen meets Sun Ra DJ dust-up, eh? Sounds interesting!
  9:24am TDK60:

Great show so far Bob. Left Banke, Nick Drake. Haven't heard this Moby Grape cut in many years!
  9:29am Jack:

Don't forget some of the string arrangements on Spirits' first album, and the second as well. Arranged by Lou Adler?
  9:48am moe:

Do we thank Eleanor Rigby for all the chamber pop?
  9:52am K. Torrington:

You have the right strings, and the right yo-yo's...great show
  9:54am tom from staten island:

You and the Sat. morning shows are the only thing that saves my sanity. If not for you all, Sat. would really SUCK

Nautical cousin?
  10:16am paul:

Exceptionally good mix of music today, Mr. B.
  10:20am Wendy del Formaggio:

Bob, your shows make waking up early on Saturday a real treat. You really are a free-form DJ, in the best meaning of the term. The songs are of different styles, but they blend together so nicely.
  10:20am Wocky:

Great tunes this afternoon!! Sitting in the hothothot sun in London and digin' it, thanks a heap!!
  10:26am Gerry from Brantford:

For a sec there, I mistook Pernice Bros for The Skydiggers. Either way, sweet.
  10:36am glenn:

skydiggers good.
  10:39am glenn:

brantford also good. (even though bobby orr is the greatest hockey player ever. sorry wayne).
  10:51am paul:

George Washington Trio? Now, that's an oldie!
