Listener comments!

  9:10am Mike Sheridan from Ventura Calif:

Bob Nice to hear the Q this AM and Spaceways is a good one,thanks

Just watched "Broken Flowers" this morning. My wife thinks I'm psychic now because I started humming the melody from that Mulatu Astatke song just seconds before it started playing because I had a feeling that was what Bill Murray's friend was putting on the CD player. Thanks for the recommendation, Bob. Great flick. I liked that his radio was set to 91.1 in the car (though also 99.5 in the next scene...a WBAI nod?)
  9:34am mike tp:

BOB fine selections heard 20 minutes while driving dropping off my niece. great weekend n enjoy yourselves
  9:40am Snortley:

When Bethany Ryker ran into Bill Murray at an opening, he told her how much he loved the station, pulled out his wallet and emptied it with an on-the-spot donation of around a hundred dollars.
  9:41am scott:

Actually, Bob, karaoke tracks are exactly what those Motown instrumentals are. A few years ago, a passel of tracks were created for use on karaoke discs, using the original Motown tracks. There's well over a hundred of them. I don't have much use for karaoke myself, but whoever created them did a great service, since the tracks offer a great chances to really appreciate the brilliance of the Funk Brothers and Motown's producers and arrangers.
  9:45am scott:

Also, the "Night of the Living Dead" track you played is not from the original film, which is scored completely with library cues and music lifted from other movies. What you played was from a horrendously misconceived "anniversary" version created by some of the original producers (George Romero was not involved) adding pointless new scenes to the original classic. That version is truly an atrocity and was in circulation on cable and DVD for awhile.
  9:46am Mike East:

@Snortley- that's so cool.
  9:46am dale:

rare moodies!!!
  9:47am Mike East:

@scott - you are an encyclopedia. Thanks for the facts!
  9:48am dale:

'cities' was the b-side to 45 of nights in white satin - another good hayward tune worth hearing
  9:57am mike tp:

yes the info on BOBS show along with the listeners n the tunes is why this show is CREAM
  10:04am dale:

  10:09am Mike East:

I'm putting my check to WFMU in the mail this morning. You can count that as a pledge to your show, Bob.
  10:26am Roberto:

It's not so much about staying on the "correct" side of the sidewalk as keeping the center lane clear. If you need to slow down or stop, pull over to one extreme side or the other.
  10:41am seang:

reading Proust while listening to Debussy--so French
  10:56am Mike East:

can't put of finger on the Woody Allen film this is used for the end credits...Zelig? something with Jeff Daniels?
  7:18pm Eugene Bentley:

I love the backing trax of the Wrecking Crew and the Funk Brothers. "Night Of the Living Dead" totally creeped me out when I saw it as an 11 year old (rereleased in theaters in 1972). Those extra trax on the Moody Blues cd reissues are priceless.
  7:45pm Eugene Bentley:

I really like the Creators Of Rain track - I'm going to have to check out the whole album. Thank you Sundazed.
