Listen All Around is great throughout. And as is often the case with Dust To Digital, its liner notes are more like a book, and a fascinating one at that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am Uncle Michael:

Little Walter does a pretty good Jeremy Spencer impression.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am Corey:

Ed played the iconic "Sweet Home Alabama" lick.
  Swag For Life Member 9:56am dinatekno:

Bob, you are my favorite Saturday morning habit. I love the music you play. Thank you. And welcome back. You are a lovely connection to my Jersey City youth as I am here listening in SWFL.

Nice to hear Honeycomb. Bouncy and wholesome.
Avatar 10:06am duke:

Interesting Wikipedia article about this Jimmie Rodgers. Who beat him and caused the head injuries? en.wikipedia.org...
  10:21am scott:

Always great to hear Runt on the radio, thanks.
  10:30am scott:

Anyone know what is going on at the end of Left Banke's 'There's Gonna Be A Storm'? The reverse tape intro to 'Nice to See You' brought it to mind.
  10:31am WilliamfromDumont:

Pinnacle of BeBop.
  10:36am Stuart Rose:

Wasn’t Red Norvo married to Mildred Bailey?
  10:44am WilliamfromDumont:

Spotlight was owned by British disocgrapher Tony Williams (not the drummer).

Bob Hite rocks!

Thanks for playing this little know Beach Boys classic, Bob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am melinda:

I like this Beach Boys.
  10:53am Santos L Halper:

Great pet sounds cover; and last week you inspired me to revisit Passions/Holland, both v rewarding.
Avatar 10:58am Sean B.:

Simply fantastic.
Avatar 10:58am duke:

Thanks for the music Bob

Your observation re the slowing down of the brain in processing information let me know what others experience as a result of "the aging process." At age 68, have been experiencing "information delay" for approximately 15 years. If one views the brain as the original microprocessor, the chip definitely processes more slowly than in the past. The good news is the data always [ultimately] locks in. Thank you for your many hours of service each week; at a time when others are enjoying downtime, you are working for the listeners on Saturday morning.
