Good morning, Bob. Thanks for a nice, mellow Saturday start with PWC's "Icarus."

Good morning, Bob and fellow listeners!
Avatar 9:25am SmokinJ:

Nice shit from Mr. Ray Mason!
  9:30am David in ATL from NJ:

Wouldn't a Froggy's Favorites Volume Two be nice?
Avatar 9:38am BEAVO:

  9:40am Listener Robert:

Irwin Chusid's opening theme music sounds an awful lot like the Man from Uncle intro to me.
  9:41am Listener Robert:

Also, for reasons I don't remember, Cheap Trick's been on my mind a lot the past week or so too.
Avatar 9:42am BEAVO:

They were just inducted into the R&R HOF
  9:44am Listener Robert:

I've been commenting that for years about Irwin's opening, but I'm the only one who seems to see the resemblance.

I think maybe Cheap Trick was inducted because I had them on my mind. I have that psychic influence.
Avatar 9:45am BEAVO:

It was on tv last weekend as well
Avatar 9:47am BEAVO:

Your psychic radar must pick up HBO.
Avatar 9:48am BEAVO:

Been seeing little people and dragons in your dreams?
  9:48am Listener Robert:

I haven't watched TV in a few yrs., and it was about 10 days ago I started obsessing about Dream Police. Maybe it had to do with my own dreams.

Anyway, try listening to Irwin's opening theme now, & see if it doesn't sound like the Man from UNCLE music. You have to unpack the melody & rhythm.
Avatar 9:51am BEAVO:

I'm never near a radio during Irwins show.have to check it out
  9:51am Listener Robert:

So did "Yes, I Can, No, You Can't" copy off "Man from UNCLE" or vice versa? Irwin doesn't hear any such resemblance, BTW.
  9:53am WilliamfromDumont:

I have a distinct memory of hearing a track by track review with band commentary when Skylarking came out. I'm sure it was on FMU.

Bud Powell - like a Charlie Parker w/ a keyboard left hand - head beaten into mental illness by a Cop.

  9:59am Listener Robert:

I'm always hearing resemblances between pieces of music. For another instance, www.youtube.com... and www.youtube.com... . I was at a performance of that trio a few yrs. ago, heard that piece, noticed the resemblance & asked about it. They said theirs was their own composition, they'd never heard that TV show I'd remembered from 50 yrs. previous. Plus it might've been before their time.
Avatar 10:00am BEAVO:

He could Have been a great classical pianist but they wouldn't accept a black artist in those days.
  10:01am Listener Robert:

You're saying they wouldn't dabble in the black arts? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am hopewithfeathers:

Signing in from the office on a Saturday -- BAH! Keep the good tunes rolling Bob. You're making my morning at work a lot more enjoyable.
  10:02am Listener Robert:

Wow, I'd no idea Bob B. wasn't pre-programming his whole show until he just said he makes most choices at the last minute. Interesting, Bob.
Avatar 10:02am BEAVO:

You said that I didn't!
  10:03am WilliamfromDumont:

Marcos Valle was a Brazilian songwriter/singer. He cut a few good Lps on Warner Bros. in the late sixties.
  10:06am Listener Robert:

I lay it all to JFK. He said he read Ian Fleming novels, and it's like the next day everyone was reading James Bond.
  10:07am Listener Robert:

Mostly John Kennedy made women swoon, but promoting Ian Fleming was his big influence on men.
  10:08am KP:

A decent Man from Uncle film seems like an obvious hit but so far we've only seen Uk cheapie that came out last year. That show was huge
Avatar 10:10am SmokinJ:

Spanky Rules!
  10:10am Listener Robert:

I couldn't see a Man from UNCLE movie made now as being interesting, because the TV show was a complete creature of its time, making fun of all the super-spy stuff.
  10:10am WilliamfromDumont:

Agree with Smokin'J!!
Avatar 10:12am SmokinJ:

thx bro' 8-)
  10:15am Stuart Rose:

Beautiful Spanky and our Gang song.
The song, the harmony vocals, and those atmospheric strings. And the lyrics- full of such week longing.
  10:16am Stuart Rose:

Yikes, wayward fingers. I mean, such sweet longing.

What a wild song to cover. Child of the Universe?
Avatar 10:40am BEAVO:

Byrds cover, what movie was that in?

A great movie to watch stoned

No Nyro, no Runt

They just released a "Box 'o Todd" with unreleased radio shows from this early period with the Hello People. 71-73.
  10:49am bobsmart567:

Very pretty, Todd
Avatar 10:50am BEAVO:

Todd hates his voice on that early stuff, says "I sound like a little boy."
