Listener comments!

  9:11am tomB:

Viva Mike Harrison! Next week, LAST PUFF?
  9:30am tomB:

The other Surf's Ups are amazing, but I agree w Marilyn Wilson: that one is the most amazing.
  9:30am Caryn:

I maintain that "Surf's Up" is the best Beach Boys album. Also, just bought the 2-disc "Smile Sessions" last week, so it was nice hearing this on WFMU.
  9:32am Marmalade Kitty:

Beautiful version of Surfs Up, Bob, thanks
  9:36am ?:

To have a psychedelic experience one must not be an optimist. Smoking mother nature will help you find target earth . Transfert 2002 can displace you, but not to worry the earth is just a stone's throw away. once you find the sunflower pictured surfboard, the surf's up. frogs are croking and you know Bob is rolling out some great tunes .
  9:50am Karen:

Good morning Bob! Sorry I missed that Skeeter Davis tune.
  9:56am Karen:

Among many other songs that opened the show. Looks like I missed lots of good stuff!
  10:02am seang:

there is a great BBC documentary on "easy listening" that has Bert Kaempfert in it
  10:11am glenn:

possibly the only time you'll ever see "great" and "easy listening" in the same sentence.
  10:17am Karen:

Call me old fashioned but I much prefer the live radio listening experience. You never know what's next!
  10:20am kenny:

Bob...thank you for info re Sat AM programming staying the same...I was worried about that..My feelings exactly about black viernes and the f.....g holidays
  10:34am mrmucho:

if the Sat AM lineup ever changes I'll lead the riot down Montgomery St
  10:42am mike tp:

chiming in with thelove of the bonnie white tune
  10:47am SmokinJ:

Having A wonderful time! 8-)
