9:02am Linda Lee:morning Bob! so glad to be awake for the show! :-D 9:02am 1whoknewcthulhu:Good morning, Bob and all. What a beautiful near-spring day in the NY Metro area. ♥ 9:02am duke:Brainiacs on the march ♥ 9:02am Zetti:morning, sooo looking forward to this... ♥ 9:02am annie:good morning bob!! 9:03am DebfromBefore:Happy BobSatuurday. I'm ready to get out of my mind. 9:03am 1whoknewcthulhu:And, THEY'RE OFF! Great start with a deep cut from the Stones. 9:03am Linda Lee:*my* rolling stones honey! their best era! in my opinion! ♥ 9:04am Uncle Michael:How odd. I listened to Between the Buttons a couple of days ago, for the first time in decades. 9:05am Linda Lee:@Uncle Michael ~ happens a lot here, i find. ♥ 9:06am annie:best version ever ♥ 9:06am duke:Aaah man, Richie Havens what a great voice ♥ 9:07am Uncle Michael:Very true, Linda. 9:08am Linda Lee:this song is *rumored* to be inspired by Allen Ginsberg ~ not sure i buy it. 9:09am Linda Lee:people can be silly. 9:10am Linda Lee:just the right time for Satie. thanks Bob! ♥ 9:12am melinda:hi everyone! 9:13am Linda Lee:hi melinda! :-D 9:13am WilliamfromDumont:Morning Bob and everyone. ♥ 9:16am melinda:I've heard that Just Like a Woman was inspired by Edie Sedgwick. 9:18am Linda Lee:that makes a little more sense. 9:22am 1whoknewcthulhu:Gritty Herman's Hermits--sounding like they listened to every Everly Brothers record to get harmonies right. 9:23am WilliamfromDumont:Sounds like the Stones backing Herman. 9:25am 1whoknewcthulhu:The first--original--Moby! 9:26am Grapeshot:It’s a Beautiful Day today! 9:29am Linda Lee:is that Spirit really 61? ♥ 9:40am Dano59:Maybe Todd Haynes came across that Ginsburg story. I always thought (well, since about '03) it was about Edie Sedgwick 9:42am Linda Lee:rumor possibly a jab at Allen. again, people can be silly. 9:44am GListener MW:so loving these TC&I tracks you’ve played, Bob — I have to remember to order the EP this weekend 9:44am WilliamfromDumont:Bob, Between the Buttons was, I believe, recorded entirely in the UK. They hadn't recorded in England since the first LP. 9:45am Linda Lee:image of very British Stones experiencing very sunny, new world 60s Hollywood for recording. irresistible. ♥ 9:45am melinda:Most likely a jab at Allen. 9:45am Peanut Gallery:Exactly right GListener MW. Thx for what you do, Bob. 9:46am Linda Lee:.. being Allen he didn't deny it, far as i know :-) 9:48am GListener MW:great segue into this should’ve-been-a-single XTC track!! Off “Mumler”, is it? 9:49am GListener MW:Mummer, rather.... damned autocorrect! 9:49am Linda Lee:one nice thing about aging: your solid ego lets you appreciate music you discounted as a youngster. :-) 9:51am SmokinJ:Mornin' bb & friends! Nice set! ♥ 9:53am Aaron Working In Newark:Morning 9:55am 1whoknewcthulhu:Never get tired of hearing this Rascal track! 9:55am Grapeshot:Just got the mono cds A sides and b sides 9:56am Linda Lee:What a pretty, pretty record. Rascals! 9:57am Grapeshot:Check out Kronos Quartet:Folk Songs 9:57am 1whoknewcthulhu:Mindful that all but 2 cuts in the first hour of programming this morning are from the Brainen Archive. ♥ 9:58am Dano59:I agree with Linda Lee - I have no compunction at this point about loving the Bee Gees and even, sometimes, Bread. ♥ 9:59am Dano59:It sure beats arguing with other fans about what is and isn't "rock'n'roll" ♥ 9:59am Davee:Great show this morning!!! ♥ 10:00am Roberto:Per Dano59's point, I listened to Dismal Day by Bread twice in a row yesterday. 10:01am Grapeshot:Any Sandy Bull in the future? 10:02am Doc Rock:Good Morning Bob + All Listeners
