Listener comments!

  Sun. 7/4/10 12:11am scanner:

Oregon was nice today...saw a bald eagle with a fish in it's claws.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:13am Joe:

Seriously? That bird has got some pretty ace timing! Or maybe they're around a lot over there? I've never seen one.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:14am scanner:

I was on Klamath Lake canoeing, they are all over out there.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:16am Joe:

Careful they don't mistake you for a fish.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:31am Sue:

Hey, Joe!!! How's my favorite-est DJ?! :)
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:34am Sue:

***Happpy Fourth!!!***
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:34am Joe:

Hey, Sue! How are you? Feelin' patriotic? Letting the eagle soar?
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:35am Sue:

Yeah, man! God bless America! :) How's it goin by you?
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:37am Joe:

Well, you know, as usual, I'm doing a tribute show to America. I think I do that every show, pretty much.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:39am Sue:

Do you ever NOT do a show about America? I mean, give it a rest, Joe! tee hee... sorry, I have a lot of energy tonight for some reason. Probably because I took a nap...looking forward to fireworks tonight?
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:44am Marmalade kitty:

"patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel"
-Samuel Johnson :)
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:47am Joe:

I'm not a scoundrel, just a rascal. Yes, Sue, fireworks, rah!
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:50am Joe:

Hey, everyone, please don't hurt yourselves tonight. Keep fingers and other appendages safely away from the fireworks displays.
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:51am Sue:

That's no fun... that makes it interesting though
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:55am Sue:

hey, i remember Gabor... you played Bacchanal one time, right? i got that album b/c of you
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:56am Joe:

Cool, Sue! Glad you like that album. Has a great Donovan cover on it. At least I think that's the one!
  Sun. 7/4/10 12:57am Sue:

yes, thanks for the tuneage, as usual!
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:02am Joe:

You bet, Sue! Thanks as usual for listening!
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:28am Marmalade kitty:

I'm not entirely sure of the context of the Johnson quote, but, G.W.Bush is clearly a scoundrel and a "false patriot, so was adolf hitler.. Is that what he meant?
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:34am Sue:

i looked it up before: "Boswell tells us that Samuel Johnson made this famous pronouncement that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel on the evening of April 7, 1775. He doesn't provide any context for how the remark arose, so we don't really know for sure what was on Johnson's mind at the time.
However, Boswell assures us that Johnson was not indicting patriotism in general, only false patriotism."
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:38am Joe:

I love Boswell AND his sisters.
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:47am Sue:

love that jim ed brown song
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:48am Joe:

Sue, what's a girl like you doing in a place like this?
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:50am Sue:

  Sun. 7/4/10 1:51am (mta) Tony:

Hi Joe, Sue, Kitty and Scanner! Happy Holidaze! Still here on MLK Blvd. They're blowing up the neighborhood already! Hope my car will still be there tomorrow! So you're all wound up, Sue... I am, too, for the same reason. Napping 'til 7 pm. Joe, great first song (Van). Did you really cry? I also cry easily.
  Sun. 7/4/10 1:51am krrrrrrt g:

  Sun. 7/4/10 1:56am Joe:

Hey, MTA Tony! Glad you dug the Van. That song puts me in a good mood, so I thought I'd lead with it. Prince also puts me in a good mood, even though he's singing about mushroom clouds!
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:32am emma:

july 4 is the only day where i can listen to my silly john phillips sousa marches LP and not feel kind of silly.
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:33am Joe:

Hi, Emma! I love the fact that you have a Sousa marches LP.
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:36am krrrrrrt g:

Prince AND Ayler?

You're kinda making me love america, joe...
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:39am emma:

heh, yes! i mean, come on.... marches are CATCHY! Ayler is always great to listen to on holidays. open up the champaigne! spirits rejoice!
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:39am Joe:

You've just made my night, KG!
  Sun. 7/4/10 2:40am Joe:
