@Buddha: Thanks for joining in! It was fun, thanks for asking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am PigeonsAndRust:

Yeah, Irving was on some great records, including my favorite Bix record "There's a Cradle in Caroline." Harmony 504-H is a real sleeper, being credited to the Broadway Bellhops. (Sorry for delayed reaction, working under a car)

@Pigeons: I have a Broadway Bellhops record!

Love it all! Joe, if I can I will be making more effort to listen to your show. I lived in Morocco for a month. And in Paris, France for a few years. So these tunes are personally gratifying to get to listen to. Take care everyone! Lots of love!
Avatar 10:36am Snoochienucci:

Loved that summertime show last year Joe. I was just thinking about that the other day...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am The Oscar:

Even with the introduction, for a split second I convinced myself this would be a cover of "Let's Lynch the Landlord!"
Avatar 10:37am Strandlund:

I agree...Joe's "SUMMERTIME" show was one of the best things I've ever heard! Love that song!
Avatar 10:39am Marc Francis:

Oh! Joe! I wanted to thank you for that Summertime show. I DJ every Friday at a bar up here in Montreal and this Friday was the solstice and I took a cue from you and played nothing but Summertime for the first hour. Thank you for that! ♥
Avatar 10:39am Joe McG:

Thanks, guys! I had a lot of fun doing that show. It reminds me that I have to do a new "single song" special soon.

That crazy live Billy Stewart "Summertime" was insane.

@Oscar: His definition keeps changing in the song. @Kat: It's good! The Donna McGhee title cut is a stunner.

So wait, "Poo Poo La La" is another version of "Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah"?

Serious advice question, when you need to apologize to a significant other, what is the proper order to play those last three songs in?
