Hi Mo. Leo Kottke - saw him at the Village Gate in 1968. He was great.

@david_, Edmund Hall had a celeste quartet, though he played the clarinet.

Glasses since second grade...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm sugarwolf:

I need to have my eyes checked again. I had them checked two years ago and they said my prescription hadn't changed but I don't believe it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm G:

haha, as if! maybe someday.
Avatar 7:41pm david_:

I got my eyes checked as a kid shortly after discovering the Beatles... wanted John's granny glasses... alas, my vision was fine...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm fleep:

Fourth grade. Copying math problems off the board incorrectly, leading to parents checking for the right answers to the wrong problems, leading to a parent-teacher conference and ... glasses.
Avatar 7:44pm deanland:

In the 3rd grade I was seated way far in the back of the class, the last row (due to being a disruptive type, back when the word disruptive meant ill behaved or naughty, not innovative). It was about that time I got my first pair of glasses and was STUNNED to learn that the blackboard was actually visible. I thought not seeing the blackboard was a punishment (despite thinking it was a certain form of freedom). First vanity moment re aging: one day, instinctively I removed my glasses to read something. The guy across from me said something to the effect of,"heh,you're an old man, eh, gotta take off the glasses to read?" I am reluctant to tell you just how many years ago that was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm G:

Yes, glasses likewise came to me at age 7 from "copying homework off the board" issues.

But I was thinking the topic was something like our first signal of incipient elderhood (which might be glasses, but not in 2nd grade)
Avatar 7:46pm Monica:

sweet story, deanland... fleep, awwwww.... david_ - yeah!....
  7:48pm trish:

That 101 year old marathon runner inspired me to replace my mini-trampoline (which was a crap one sprung by fabric not springs).
Avatar 7:51pm deanland:

Only hearing the 1st hour tonight :-( Gotta go with friends in town for dinner
  7:53pm CB1:

Before my first pair of glasses (aged 7) I just thought the world turned soft when you moved away from things.
Avatar 7:53pm david_:

I think my age vanity issues started when I would try to look graceful doing exercise or sports, and immediately get a charlie horse or feel some bone trying to work its way out of place...
  7:54pm listener gary:

I have such a bad cold I forgot that it's sunday. sorry to have missed the first one half. Hello dj monica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm fleep:

Vanity issue would be a brief fling with Grecian Formula. Ultimately it was like yelling at the tide, so we parted ways.
Avatar 7:58pm david_:

great Moondog crossfade...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm sugarwolf:

I was reading a family scrapbook of newspaper clippings from the 30s and 40s this weekend. There was a picture of one of the local nonagenarians with the headline MENTALLY ALERT.

This sounds very Donnie & Joe Emerson. In a very good way.
  8:51pm Windy City:

Great Show as always !

Thanks Monica
  8:51pm trish:

This is young headphone music for me. Looking back, it was also probably a baby sitter tactic.

"Love By The Android Smartphone Light" just isn't the same.
Avatar 8:55pm Sem Chumbo:

and try working "chocolate malt, dreamy waltz" into it...
