Listener comments!

  9:13am Steve:

Isn't "The Nightingale" on that Jo Stafford album? A song which served as a melodic template for Dylan's "With God On Our Side"
  9:27am Destroit:

Write back, great track.
  9:40am whattawino:

The TV show w/Sandy Becker was Wonderama...I learned of
Hambone there too!
  10:03am suea:

lenny kaye will be in strousdburg pa today. Main Street Jukebox. The store burned down around 6 years ago and was reborn. amazing that it was possible.
  10:06am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Bob,
I'll be gamboling over to Jerry's Records (http://www.jerrysrecords.com/) here in Pittsburgh. Miraculously, I live only two blocks away. Jerry's is still fiercely vinyl only. In fact, one large segment of the place is devoted to 78s and another to turntable repair.
  10:06am e. p. dowd:

Mystery Train in Amherst, MA; Turn It Up! in Northampton, MA; Instant Karma in Orleans, MA
  10:07am Wendy del Formaggio:

To celebrate Record Store Day, I'm going to In The Moment Records and Turn It Up! in Brattleboro, Vermont. Look for me, I'm wearing my "Escuche!" FMU shirt. :-)
  10:08am Wendy del Formaggio:

e.p. - I haven't been to Mystery Train since I moved back. So glad it's still there!
  10:12am mrmucho:

even though I'm not going to either today, I'll rep for Flip Side Records in Pompton Lakes, NJ and also Infinity Records in Massapequa Park, NY.
  10:14am Hugh Curtis:

Bob, good morning,
I saw THE very first Sandy Becker show,---Wonderama--1st host, on Dumont Broadcasting, ch. 5. Loved him ever since.
  10:14am Mike East:

Hey mrmucho - I'm in Pompton Plains, across the highway. Haven't heard of Flip Side. Where's it at?
  10:16am mrmucho:

the Flip Side is on Wanaque Ave, towards the north side of town. It's mostly used vinyl.
  10:17am scott:

Sandy Becker hosted Wonderama briefly in the mid-'50s, but he's better remembered for his own show. The two long-term Wonderama hosts were Sonny Fox, who hosted for much of the '60s, and Bob McAllister, who replaced him in 1967 and hosted until the show ended in the mid-'70s
  10:18am Dave in PA:

The Blacksmith!
  10:21am Lucas:

So beautiful
  10:24am Mike East:

nice! that's mostly what I buy...usually at Sound Exchange on 23, but their aisles are really narrow, and the records are on the floor underneath the cd racks. It kills the knees!
  10:26am whattawino:

Vinyl Revolution in Monteray, CA is THE best and Bob Gamber is THE man! Go check 'em out today!
  10:29am mrmucho:

you'll do a bit of flexing at Flip Side too since it's a small store, but its prices and stock destroy Sound Exchange. It's not even close.
  10:31am Mike East:

cool. Thanks so much for the tip. I'll definitely be checking it out. Gonna try to head to Generation Records in the city today. Some FMU djs spinning this afternoon.
  10:39am Malcolm:

Love this show!
  10:39am rick:

record den - Teaneck NJ 70's
Ave. J - Brooklyn 60"s
  10:41am briania:

Nice Family track.
  10:47am lori gb:

yes! vinyl revolution in monterey, ca...the shop has been there for almost 20 years. if you're in the monterey bay area be sure to stop in, you'll be glad you did!
  10:51am susan:

There are two more jems: Jack's Music in Red Bank & Hold Fast in Asbury Park!!!!
  10:53am Marc Grobman:

Greetings Bob, brilliant segway from rock into hard bop! Enjoying your show. Hope to see you at the FMU record fair or the Record Riot show in Brooklyn tomorrow. ATB, old comrade, Marc
  7:59pm Eugene Bentley:

Hey Bob! A record store from the midwest ZZZ's records in Des Moines. I live on Brattleboro ave in the city.
