Greetings @efd and Funkaholics. It's good to be here for another Wednesday. Bringin' that Sly Stone sound early. I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm

Happy to have you here, chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm

Sounds like "mimic the grass hounds" -- I can get with that.

Of greets & mondegreens !

I have a feeling one of these tunes is going to appear on the premium.
Avatar 9:17pm

i think i saw polyrock in 1980. they opened for television, if memory serves.
Avatar 9:18pm

maybe 1981. it was a long time ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm

that sounds very likely, glenn!

good evening all.... nice to be here.

greetings Loretta, Jack, Fuzzy, RRN63, and Glenn! Thank you all for tuning in tonight.
Julie M Brooklyn:

I would like it if this Recondite song was on the premium. Or any of the others so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm

no Young Pope fans out there, I guess?
Julie M Brooklyn:

HBO Young Pope, dare I ask? It does sound like a good name for a band...

Hi all, evening Evan. Tuning in late, seeing I missed a number of good tunes. If I recall, didn't one member of Little Sister become Mrs. Leon Russell a few years later?

I have watched 5 episodes, and knew I had heard the recondite track, which is when I tuned in here.
Julie M Brooklyn:

The HBO series I've watched have had some great music. Who knew?

This song f'ing rocks

Praise the airwaves, it's Wednesday!

Agree with @Jgetsfresh. Shifters tune kicks AYSHE!. Sounds like some Swell Maps business or something.

Ahhhh the days of being an art student at Mass Art. Remember the Isabella Stewart gardner Museum robbery happened then. There was yellow caution tape on that side door the next day.

This hold on to love just reminds me a little of ALAN PARSONS. NICE

A little late tuning in, but good Wednesday night to y'all. What did I miss?

Recently 1st heard of Peter Skellern on a Beatle-themed podcast re his connections to the Fab4.
...Nights long ago trying to pull in WBCN on my little radio up here in the hills of NewHampshire: Jerry Goodwin 'The Duke of Madness' messing w/ my dreams in the wee hours...

YES Mike tp, was thinking the same on this listen.

Unblinking Ear podcast is dynamite.

This song isn't so wonderful. Sorry.
Avatar 11:20pm

AWWWW YEAH! Bedazzler time!

I guess I was only partially paying attention to previous airings of this tune in weeks past, because I thought the singer kept proclaiming "I'm Jimmy Castor." Which I knew he wasn't.
