Awesome driving music, Gaylord. No idea where I'm going
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@KP: Me, neither, to be honest. As long as we don't crash into each other, we'll do fine.
  8:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Gaylord and everyone! This is a cool soundtrack to make gyros to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: I'm happy to be providing the soundtrack to your gyro party!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm common:

Hi Gaylord and you. I thought that was coletrane. I was wrong and continue
  8:39pm Carmichael:

Heya Gaylord and pals. Sunday night is bbq and good music night. You and me, we're a team.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@common: That mistake is very understandable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: In that case, throw an Impossible Burger on the grill for me!

Good evening, Gaylord. I hope the NFL draft met your expectations.
  8:47pm listener paul:

it's unseasonably cool here in
south Arkansas, but I'm on my porch anyway, and with Gaylord's show I'm having something pretty close to a perfect moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: This has been a weekend where I haven't had a moment to myself, so I don't even know how the Giants drafted!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@listener paul: How lovely! Thanks for sharing that with me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thot that Searches might be the Iveys
...Half a Century ago, Hendrix was on tour w/ The Walkers, Cat Stevens & Englebert Humperdink...helluva show!
  8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hearing the original Frankie valli version of this is always interesting. So different from the more familiar Walker brothers version...
Avatar 9:07pm gal_x:

Thank you, @david from ks. It is a portrait of the actress Anna May Wong. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: Frankie's original has a similar arrangement but is surprisingly tamer. The added Johnny Franz bombast of the Walkers' version brings it to life.
  9:07pm Carmichael:

I heard an interview with Bob Gaudio a few years ago, and they played the Valli version. As a Walker fan, I was pleasantly surprised.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: Someone needs to interview the genius arranger Charles Calello. That someone may have to be me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Nice Arrangement & Recording on the Frankie. Great singer. But Walkers sound like they mean the melodrama.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The amazing Broadcast - like United States of America meet Syd's Floyd.
  9:14pm Carmichael:

@Gaylord: Please! It also goes to show what a great song it is, no matter who sings it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: I agree with that equation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@Carmichael: True! It really is majestic! I hope to hear it live someday performed with full Wall of Sound production and by a sympathetic singer.
  9:17pm Old Dave:

@ gal- Wong was rejected for Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth?" What the hell?
Buck's farm is near where we live in Pennsylvania. Lots of paradox to this day.
I love her writing anyway.
  9:18pm Kate:

Hey Gaylord! So great to see you at the Record Fair!! Was that Broadcast and the Focus Group you just played as in Trish Keenan Broadcast? Loving the show so much!
Avatar 9:19pm gal_x:

@Old Dave — White washing and racism is not new. :(
Avatar 9:19pm gal_x:

@Old Dave : Interestesting tidbit about Pearl S Buck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Old Dave: Casting Anna May Wong to play against Paul Muni would have been considered "miscegenation" (which is effed up from about 17 angles).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Kate: Likewise in seeing you! Thanks so much for listening and saying hello! And yes, that is the same Broadcast (Trish Keenan, R.I.P.).
  9:23pm Old Dave:

Agreed, Gaylord. A Chinese man could never play Charlie Chan back in the day, or the world would end!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@Old Dave: And heaven forfend we have a Chinese-American actress playing the love interest of a European-American actor — even if he's playing a Chinese character! So guess who had to go...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Frankly, they're still casting white people to play others.
Avatar 9:30pm Marc Francis:

What a beautiful song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc Francis: Oh, yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This Dion is '65?? When the bYRds had barely happened...
  9:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: If Columbia hadn't gotten cold feet on releasing Dion's new direction, he would have gotten credit for being a folk-rock pioneer as well as its greatest practitioner. My god, that song I just played!!!
  9:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

As a huge (unironic) fan of Al Jardine, I'm so happy you're playing this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn Bishop: Alan Jardine is deserving of your love. Such a versatile and unheralded vocalist!
  9:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah- when I met him last year, I told him how much I loved his voice and he seemed really surprised and happy that someone had approached him to tell him that.
  9:38pm Old Dave:

The Pearl Buck Foundation is a thing, actual and factual. I interviewed their director a few decades ago on behalf of the US Peace Corps. At the time their mission was cleaning up the problem of unwanted an left behind kids of US service men in SE Asia.
Their work is never done...
Sorry, I know politics forbidden now on FMU! I will stop now.
This is a very healing show, Gaylord.
Many thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Was it Al who brought 'Sloop John B' to them? The Folk fan in the Boys? No surprise they can all sing - but still!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bronwyn B: Al's singing on that one song on the Beach Boys' most recent album ("From There to Back Again") was the LP's runaway highlight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Yep, Al was the group's folkie.
  9:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gaylord: true, I love that song!
  9:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Love terry callier...this whole set has been great :D
  9:47pm david from ks.:

Goodnight Gaylord, where ever you are..
  9:56pm Carmichael:

Wow, I didn't know Bobby Womack recorded this. Incredible ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Will: Glad I could play it!

@Mr C: I'm so in the present!

@Carmichael: Womack is a great songwriter and interpreter.
  9:58pm Kate:

Wow this *is* amazing

I missed the Al Jardine, I'll have to go back to the archive later. Had no idea about his folky leanings.
