Never mind!
Keep on treating the microphone!
  3:47pm P-90:

At first I thought Ta Hi had samples from "Poppa Was A Rolling Stone," then it sounded like they just "borrowed" big chunks of the arrangement. Great track either way.

Avatar 3:53pm Brian Cat:

You can say the world is a hostile place and you would be correct. Then you can think about blocks upon blocks of homes where people are living in pleasant families and everything is peaceful and that is also accurate. The light and the dark coexist. You have to choose where you want to live, in the light or the dark places.
  3:53pm Adrian in London:

@Guido It'll be an amazing show.
Avatar 3:54pm djsheilab:

Thank you for that Brian Cat. I choose the light!
Avatar 3:55pm djsheilab:

But that movie I mentioned—The Stoning Of Soraya M.—definitely took me to that dark place.

I've got no probl w/ repeats. Evan Funk Davies has occasionally been known to do so, for instance.
  4:56pm mzz:

re atmosphere-ic song, Leon Russell /SUPER STAR
  4:56pm Marc15:

Repeating songs is okay, Sheila. DJs have theme songs that they play weekly
  4:57pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

@Guido from Cologne, Amazon has a Black Friday special for a BOGO 50% off on all vinyl sold by Amazon. It should show up in the cart, but if not, contact the customer service chat to let them know.

This old F.M. instrumental is nice. I worry about tracks I really like becoming regular theme songs. But I'm willing to reach consensus with the very musically savvy S.B.B. listeners.

I really really really love the original Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac!

sheila, did you see the link i sent last week for the french version of the song sophisticated boom boom? lead in was way to long before they got to the chorus but it was exceptional.
Avatar 5:25pm JakeGould:

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:27pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, NOW I finally think of an atmospheric track, as triggered by the fine Fleetwood Mac: Beach Boys, "Let's Go Away for a While."
