9:06am Mike East:Good morning, Bob. I have Them! coming in the mail later today. I'm very excited. 9:17am listener scott:Hey Bob, my brand new headphones (K240 Studio) are loving your show. The headphones and I are three hours into a 12-hour shift. 9:25am Parq:Bob, was it you who ended your show in the 80s with Sondheim doing his own version of "Whistle"? 9:26am Mike East:how do you like them, scott? Those were candidates the last time I was in the market. 9:38am listener scott:Mike, loving them so far. Light, great sound, no frills. Cord is maybe too long but so what. One possible minus is that they're open so if you use them in an office you can't really crank it up to eleven. 9:45am Mike East:ah yes, that would also be a problem trying to listen to something in bed next to my sleeping wife. thanks for the tip.
I just had a the TV on with no volume (I just got an antenna) and it was a public access station playing an organ performance by Diane Bish (google her if you don't know what she looks like) with Memphis Black providing the sound track. rofl
9:49am Mike East:She's on WFME-TV channel 66-1 9:51am listener William:Bitter Wind-single mix? Even weirder than the Lp version. 9:52am listener scott:Joey Joe-Joe Junior Shabadoo! 10:04am Mike East:Come back Joey Joe Joe! 10:18am SmokinJ:Hey! It's a party! 10:20am seang:let's rock baby 10:24am RHenderson:I've always wondered how this Cream song wound up debuting in a biker film ("The Savage Seven" possibly?), much less in a biker film produced by Dick Clark ?!? 10:26am RHenderson:Also great to hear Emitt Rhodes' voice as an opener to my foggy Californian morning. Thanks, Bob. 10:27am listener William:Cream did this song on the Smothers Brothers show. Priceless! 10:30am RHenderson:When my parents got their first color TV, the first thing I saw on it was The Who on the Smothers Brothers. Moon's purple smoke bombs, v psychedelic! 10:39am Siriusly:Of course we all remember Lily Munster singing He's Gone Away - so Orphean 10:43am Peter K.:This Pee Wee homage is of course largely a rip-off of Monk's "Ask Me Now," which if memory serves Pee Wee Russell once recorded. By the way, does anyone else think Tanya Haden's voice sounds like Carole King's? 10:44am RHenderson:Starsailor! This song always stuck out amidst extended pieces like "The Healing Festival." Tim Buckley could do just about anything with his voice. 10:44am bob:Agreed about that particular pet peeve… it would leave me stymied in a record store when I was a kid… blood simmering, feeling like they were trying rip me off…same with the edited versions on Ktel comps. Great show! 10:45am Cooooool:Thanks for the Bud Powell. Please play more of his ilk, 10:47am TG:H 10:48am TG:F 10:48am listener William:Re: Pet peeve. The fact that it was a promo copy prob accounts for the same song on both sides thing. 10:49am TGf:V 10:49am TGf:V 10:50am TGf:To 10:51am Cooooool:More cooool stuff. Bernstein does Copland. 10:53am Cooooool:Dancing shoes are on!! 10:57am Cooooool:Whooooooeeeeeeeee, the tunes are getting me moving! 11:02am Cooooool:Thanks
