Good morning, Bob--and what a beautiful start.
Avatar 9:08am duke:

Howdy Bob and Saturday listeners
  Swag For Life Member 9:10am mauri:

Good saturday Bob and everyone.
He's gone away gets me everytime. I listen wondering what is this beautiful melody?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am foofs:

Getting eased into a long day of FA Cup and FMU simul-listening beautifully here. Prognosis is good, BB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am doctorjazz:

Pretty Frissell (that's redundant, isn't it?_
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am foofs:

Oh, and I don't want to alarm anybody, but some dangerously wacky anarchist appears to have put some prominent Comic Sans on the front page of the website...
Avatar 9:20am Nanker de Tucson:

Amazing that Harper Lee had the long gap [ 55 yrs ? ] between her 2 major publications/books.
  Swag For Life Member 9:21am mauri:

Footie saturday for me too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Mike East:

The way my 3 yr old just started moving to the Chambers Brothers, you'd have thought it was "Dancin' Shoes." That track really spoke to her
  9:33am SeanG:

good morning Bob and everyone around the world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am doctorjazz:

Brown/Roach, lovin' it!
  9:51am Jeff:

Good vibes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Guido from Cologne:

I loved the debut album by Eggstone some twenty years ago.
Swedish band? scandinavia anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am foofs:

It can't be easy being a touring vibraphone player. On top of the logistical inconveniences, you can't even get half an hour without some hilarious bastard asking you what the vibes are like.
Avatar 9:57am CeeDubbles:

Chet Baker singing Inara George?
Avatar 10:15am SmokinJ:

Sweet spot of the set!
  10:16am Jeff:

Thompson and Swarbrick!
  10:30am josh:

what's this R&B track with the chant 'oh,woah o woah o woah' and big trumpet hits which was played for like 30 seconds
  10:42am JoeChrisMorris:

what did I miss? isn't this Monkees song by David Gates (Bread)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45am doctorjazz:

Love this Hoe-down, great track, nice set!
  10:45am Emile:

  10:46am 1whoknewcthulhu:

That ain't your Aaron Copeland "Hoe Down"--thanks for Oliver Nelson!
  10:47am JoeChrisMorris:

she was your WRONG HEAVEN they tell me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Blues & the Abstract Truth' album :
Oliver Nelson – alto saxophone, tenor saxophone
Eric Dolphy – flute, alto saxophone
George Barrow – baritone saxophone
Freddie Hubbard – trumpet
Bill Evans – piano
Paul Chambers – bass
Roy Haynes – drums
...that will do nicely, TY...
  10:53am JoeChrisMorris:

ANOTHER album by Gene Clark I have that I haven't listened to! Kind of catchy! Wasn't there a tribute to this album? or to No Other?!
  10:54am mrmucho:

great set as usual, Bob! Nice Stolen Moments -> Hoe Down connection
Avatar 10:57am Marc Francis:

I love this Beachwood Sparks song. It's got a hint of the Grateful Dead and Camper Van Beethoven to it...
  Swag For Life Member 10:59am dinatekno:

Bob, you are my Saturday morning soundtrack. Thank you so much for bringing a smile to my face and puzzled look to my dog as she watches me dance across the floor.....
