Good morning, friends! All this banjo is just perfect, Joe.

It's a delight to hear those yip yip aliens in the car *after* camp drop-off, because then I know I was on time.

Nice alarm

This is a lovely track.

Marisa Anderson sounds wonderful this morning.
  9:18am Brendan:

That last Bill MacKay piece reminded me of something off the Slingblade soundtrack or even David Lynch movie closing credits.
  9:19am the sturgen general:

dont you know smoking eyelasses has been reported to cause cancer in frogs...you need to vape those things

Sorry for the late hello, folks, just chatting with the Pidge. Hope you're all having a nice morning so far and welcome to the show!

Man with the golden arm" - great movie- great soundtrack - great animation and packaging by Saul Bass .

but this is not the original recording or is it
  9:36am Brendan:

Great knife fighting music
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:36am Guido from Cologne:

i think it was mono ...
... or is this a theme re-use ?

It is a theme re-use ... now i understand.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:38am Guido from Cologne:

This was the title theme of "Man With The Golden arm"

Joe… Your mic sounds weird to me. Like you are dead mono with pure stereo bed around you.

Enjoyed that set
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:42am steveo:

Does anyone else hear that little riff that sounds like Apache by Sugar Hill Gang in this background music? (Been hearing that for years but never said anything.)
Avatar 9:43am Itzall Ablurr:

Good morning Joe. And speaking of great TV crime shows, why is it basically impossible to find DVDs for "Hawaiian Eye" and "Seventy-Seven Sunset Strip"? Decades TV did their weekend marathons with those shows a while back, but as far as I can tell they are otherwise unavailable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am SeanG:

this song rocks dude. hi Joe! and all.
Avatar 9:44am Joe McG:

Hey steveo and melinda and Alice and other friends. @Jack: The mic is the same as ever, so I'm not sure what's up! I sound a bit weird to myself, but I think that's just my brain.
Avatar 9:46am Joe McG:

@Itzall: Good question! Hey, Sean!

Due to this being on Hi and from the sonics, I assume Willie Mitchell is involved on this Syl track?

Thanks for the amazing images Joe. Either a rodeo taking place in a roundhouse or (more realistically) dudes wrangling dusty bucking steam engines.
Avatar 11:17am Joe McG:

@mark: Thanks for keeping me honest. I must have been thinking about Steve Forbert.
Avatar 11:19am Joe McG:

@Eric Hat: You bet, Eric. Reminds me of an R.E.M. story where someone thought Stipe sang "the horns of the day" instead of "the hours of the day" and he liked "horns" better, so he kept it.
Avatar 11:20am Ear Hammer:

couple of quick thoughts, please work "Eff the Police" into every future mic break. Additionally this Marc Johnson song is perfect!
  11:20am Mark in Toronto:

Sorry Joe, I'm just being really nit-picky for no good reason.
Avatar 11:21am Joe McG:

Ear Hammer! I promise to try. :) @Mark: No, I really do like it. I'm a stickler for accuracy, as you can tell by my ridiculous playlist.

These are the horns of our lives.
