Devon! Castaways!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Mr. Pumpy:

Hello, Devon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm loveless:

Strong start to the show. Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Threemoons:

Greets. Gonna go think about setting up a pot of beans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

Hi Devon and islanders! Making coffee..
Avatar 7:14pm Feldpausch:

I've been looking forward to this show
  7:21pm P-90:

There were sequences with terrific, memorable scores in that movie, really unfortunate that much of it wasn’t available for so long (except of course on the movie itself.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Mr. Pumpy:

YES! I love this track. I can see it all right now. ATV...bullet holes...
  7:24pm P-90:

... and I hope Devon asks Grusin at some point about what discussions there might have been about what does and doesn’t sound “pirate-y” (and why!) and what his approach was to getting a “pirate-y” sound in much of the score.
  7:37pm P-90:

re: Divorce American Style, I was literally talking with someone just yesterday about how you hear that electric harpsichord sprinkled into a theme for a movie or tv show, and you KNOW you’re in the mid-sixties...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Michael in Montclair:

My Dave Grusin intro was finding out about the credits to “There’s Something Funny Going On”, the theme song to “And Justice For All”. The musical style of that last track I just heard is so similar to “Something Funny”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm brycepunk1:

Devon, I love your show and the interviews you get to share with us. Thank you!
  7:53pm P-90:

Good Times is one of the all-time home runs, an absolutely HUGE , complete musical statement squeezed into a very short theme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm listener 126464:

Excellent, thanks Devon & Dave.
