Good show today Bob!
  9:16am Michael Hurlbert:

Wow! I remember Stingray. A British children's television program featuring marionettes that was related to other shows like Thunderbirds and Fireball XL5. Submarine adventures against evil. Outstanding!

BB: Dave Bombay played a lot of stuff of the Beat Generation box set yesterday. Treasure! Wiggy...

Always time for the Capt. and the Band.
  9:44am mrmucho:

Great arrangement on this tune, with the guitar drop out, etc.
  9:44am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I get the feeling that if the sun had just gone supernova behind Bob, the description would have been just as calm and unfazed.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am Mike East:

*the way* (not was)
  10:32am Michael from the Left Coast:

There are a few early Hall and Oates tracks with guitar and mandolin (played by Darl Hall), including "Lady Rain"

TCM is playing 'Beauty and the Beast' later this month.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Mike East:

I'll accept that explanation...makes sense
  10:40am Moe:

Of coarse only McGuinn played on mr tambourine man, the other players were hired guns... The byrds did sing on that cut however
  10:47am Moe:

Mr tambourine man... Dylan's connection?
Avatar 10:49am Jay/London:
