Listener comments!

  Sat. 7/25/09 6:11am Sue:

Joe! Awesome track! You totally rule! :) It's just perfect for this time of morning.
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:12am Joe:

Thanks, Sue, and good morning to you! I'm glad you're with me this morning.
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:19am Sue:

I'm just sitting around listening to your show again. I gotta get ready for work! :)
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:20am Joe:

Uh-oh! I'm making you so unproductive!
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:21am Sue:

At least I can listen while I iron :)
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:22am Sue:

I think you should know that you're driving me crazy with this set right now. It's too unreal
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:22am Joe:

Just so long as you pretend you are in a Bollywood musical while you do it!
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:51am Marco:

Great show! Wanna hear the Peter Walker LP.
Greetings to all from London, England!
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:53am Joe:

Hey, Marco! Welcome to you and all of our fine listeners from the UK and environs. Saw Peter Walker at Cecil Sharp earlier this year. Great stuff!
  Sat. 7/25/09 6:56am Marco:

Must have been awesome, Joe! Thank you for the great selection. Hope is well in beautiful NYC and continue to play more of thie fantastic stuff.
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:05am Joe:

Hey, thanks, Marco! It's lookin' pretty good out there this morning, so I hope it's a beautiful day. Hope all is swell over there!
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:10am Marco:

It sure is! Summer has reached these shores too.
Will buy the Peter Walker and Sandy Bull LP reissues you just spoke about. Any mail order recommendation from your side? When I am in NY I go to Other Music but have no visit planned for the moment (unfortunately). Will now tune in every Saturday. What a great discovery: you made my day.
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:12am Joe:

Wow, Marco, that's so cool! Thanks. If you like Other Music, they do mail order online, so you can still shop there if you like!
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:13am Marco:

Thank YOU, Joe.
All the best.
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:37am Jeffersonic:

Joe Maphis is it! The 1:58 min. "electric" version of "Fire on the Strings" just tears it to pieces!
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:39am Joe:

You said it! That's an amazing LP.
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:52am Marco:

Wow! The Last and Starz! You really know your music, Joe! What next? Any Willie Alexander? The db's? Do you accept requests for next week? Just joking, you choose. TOP SHOW!!!
  Sat. 7/25/09 7:54am Joe:

To tell you the truth, Marco, I feel like playing the Starz 45 about 8 times in a row! God, I love that record. Feel free to send me requests! I can't guarantee I'll play 'em, but maybe! I like your two suggestions so far!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:07am ?:

I will love to be surprised by your outstanding taste, Joe!
Just a few humble random thoughts: anything on the ORK label (Prix, Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, early Television). Any MV&EE music from nowadays (love them myself). A track from the latest Vetiver album. Just blabbering. You play what you feel is right and I will listen and appreciate.
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:09am Joe:

Those are all such great suggestions! Wish I had 3 more hours and I'd get 'em all in!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:15am fred:

I like this transmission a lot. And I like a lot of what you've transmitted so far. My request is for you to keep doing what you do. It's less fun if I know what's coming
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:17am Joe:

Thanks, Fred! I'll try to keep you guessing.
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:40am Marco:

May the rest of your Saturday be as good as the music you played today. Am going out myself to take advantage of God's sunny day and a London park. I will tune in next Saturday again. Ciao! (My Italian nationality creeps through!)
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:44am Joe:

Thanks, Marco! Have a great day, and thanks for tuning in!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:44am Listener Lisa in Tampa:

Great show, Joe! And other things that rhyme!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:47am dale:

nice program. I keep getting thrown off when i'm so accustomed to the olde timey brit/folk etc on in this timeslot. but this is lovely to wake up to. cheers!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:48am Joe:

Thanks, Lisa from Tampa!! And thanks, Dale. Yes, my show is a bit different than Jeff's. But I'll get some of that folk on, too, I swear!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:53am Joe:

In fact, here's some nice Brit folk for you now!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:54am dale:

don't do that for me joe, i like hearing all this new (old) stuff. oops! there you go with the pentangle...jacqui mcshee has the best reedy voice...
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:56am Joe:

Love her voice!
  Sat. 7/25/09 8:57am emily:
