  9:11am John:

Ah, I romanced my (now) wife with "I Love You"...
  Swag For Life Member 9:14am tadpoles:

Didn't sound like John Peel Bob. Thanks for "Paper Sun".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Coltrane Quartet. That is all.
  9:16am Stuart Rose:

You're right, Tadpoes.
That was Bob Harris doing the intro.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the guy who called the Dolls 'Mock Rock' - semi-annoying...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am annie:

smooooth.... and mellow.
  9:20am Mark R:

Trane's wild and wooly stuff sometimes overshadows the fact that he might have been the most beautiful ballad player ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The fact Trane had mastered everything else gave weight to his AvantGarde-ism.
  9:27am JoeChrisMorris:

nice to hear NRBQ. Bobs favorite band!
  9:33am melinda:

Great set!
  9:38am JoeChrisMorris:

sad Steely Dan never tackled Ida Lee. Its a rather sinister song!
  9:44am Stuart Rose:

Donald Fagen seemed to be channeling Lou Reed in his vocal and the ambience of the song.
  Swag For Life Member 9:51am tadpoles:

The wonderful Alison Statton from Young Marble Giants. Truly wonderful.
  10:03am Mike tp:

Always outstanding Roberto
  10:05am Mark R:

On Gilligan's Island the Professor would rig up some crank thing to a coconut or something. You have to be resourceful.
  10:08am Jeff:

Dion was part of that package tour.
He opted not to take that ill faited plane ride.
