  Sun. 6/12/11 12:52am cheri:

joe?? you won't play anything special for me?
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

Hello Joe!
A fine "moonlight serenade" from The Caretaker!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! What's happening?
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:11am Adam in Portland:

That Caretaker release is really growing on me. Checked bits of it out on the Aquarius Records site. Thanks for guiding me through a full track, Joe. Great show, of course!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:12am Adam in Portland:

P/S, good evening, all.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

I see Ikebe Shakedown is back, as well as "D.I.Y. and (Very) Indie Postpunk"!! What a name! Definitely will check that out!
Good evening to you Adam! It's more like late night on the East Coast here!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:13am Joe McG:

Hey, Adam! Thanks for checkin' in. I'm getting fond of the Caretaker album myself. I was tempted to play a couple more tracks...
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:13am Adam in Portland:

We're all on Mcgasko Standard Time. ;-)
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:15am Joe McG:

I ought to dig out a standard or two and live up to it!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:16am Adam in Portland:

With Horace Silver you're so, so close, Sir. Kudos.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:16am fleep:

Another unsweetened almond milk, bartender ... and keep 'em comin'. No, I'll tell YOU when I've had enough. Pour!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:17am Adam in Portland:

Miss Nina Simone is never too far away with wit and wisdom.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:18am Adam in Portland:

Most unconscionable faux pas EVER! Please accept my apologies everyone. MS. Nina Simone.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:19am Joe McG:

You're lucky she's not in the room, Adam.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:20am Adam in Portland:

Indeed. I can feel the slap as it is. ;-)
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:20am Adam in Portland:

Upbraided would be an understatement. Haha.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:21am cheri:

joe maybe you can spin more k.c & the sunshine band,,,
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:21am Adam in Portland:

Ms. Simone, though you are no longer around for a written apology, please know I know you are the High Priestess of Soul.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:24am Adam in Portland:

Cheri, are you wearing your-your-your boogie shoes?
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:26am fleep:

Ah, that's better. The fidelity was getting a little too good, Almost pop'n'scratch time!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:26am Adam in Portland:

With all this past week's mass media Weiner hysteria it feels to me like we could all use some Screamin' Jay Hawkins to get things right.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

Since you're playing old blues, it's worth mentioning I saw a license plate the other day labeled: "CC R1DER"! That's great, because 1) someone has good taste in blues, and 2) the "1" means SOMEONE ELSE already had that plate, so there's at least TWO people with great taste in classic blues!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

@Adam: Now wait just a minute, Rep. Weiner's attention is totally warranted; he put a spell on her. Because she's his. Not to mention crotch shots on Twitter is a lot less smart than anyone nowadays should be.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:29am Adam in Portland:

@Matt: wish I could fit Mighty Hannibal on a personalized license plate.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:31am Adam in Portland:

True, he should have been wiser with his home photography experiments, but we should all get out of his underpants, no?
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:31am fleep:

The aversion therapy for sex addiction is harsh, they make you look at pictures of attractive women while honey badgers chew your ankles.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:32am Matt from Springfield:

@Adam: Yes, as quickly as possible! Couldn't agree with you more! ;)
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:32am Adam in Portland:

  Sun. 6/12/11 1:33am Adam in Portland:

Ahhhh, Honey Badger meme, I meesed you.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:34am Adam in Portland:

I miss "Muffins" even more.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:36am Adam in Portland:

Millie, where all the solid cats AT?
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

OH NOOO YOU DI'INT...you pulled out LADY Millie Jackson!!!
Tha party's started!! Lawd have mercy!!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:38am cheri:

joe could you deticate this millie jackson tune for me??
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:39am Joe McG:

Sure, Cheri, it's all yours. Hope you enjoyed it!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:40am cheri:

thanx joe!!!=)
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:41am northguineahills:

Enjoying the set, Joe!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:42am fleep:

Is the faster rpm of a 45 the analog equivalent of a higher sample rate? Or they just engineered diffrently than the same song on an LP? There's something so compelling about 45 sound...
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:43am Adam in Portland:

@Matt: you ain't lyin'! I just threw on my Gazelles and an electric blue suit.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:43am Joe McG:

Thanks, ngh! I think the grooves are actually wider on a 45, so you can fit more info. ..
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:44am fleep:

Interesting, thanks Joe!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:45am cheri:

now there's an odd couple ----alice cooper & betty wright!!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, we're Welcomed to the Clean Up Woman's Nightmare!
@Adam: That's why I'm so glad we have Joe McG!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:46am Chop Scott:

I love it to death when Alice tells a story...
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:47am Adam in Portland:

@Cheri: great point! I think I'd know like to hear Alice do a duet with Bettye Lavette.
@Matt: AMEN, Brother!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:47am Joe McG:

Hey, Chop Scott! I do, too, but like Betty, I don't believe he's telling the truth!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

Oh Lordy, Theme from M*A*S*H again...but Disco-fied!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:49am Adam in Portland:

When I was a youngster I had a few of those mortifyingly indefensible/undeniably amazing KTEL television theme records. :-)
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:50am cheri:

well g'night all,, thank you for your kindness joe,,,if you see julie tell her cheri said hello,, ok joe??
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:51am Adam in Portland:

URRRM, I also owned the soundtrack for the film "Convoy." haha.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:51am Joe McG:

Goodnight, Cheri!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:51am Adam in Portland:

G'night, Cheri! Be well.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:53am Adam in Portland:

Lucifer sounds somewhat surprisingly pleasant and avuncular.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:54am fleep:

He's a man of wealth and taste
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:54am Adam in Portland:

  Sun. 6/12/11 1:54am Joe McG:

Especially for a guy who wants to do it with Mother Nature. Yuck!
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:55am Adam in Portland:

@Fleep: noted, but he also sounds like he wouldn't be above feeding lambs with a baby's bottle.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:56am Adam in Portland:

Y'know, like Grampa Walton. Haha.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:58am Adam in Portland:

Joe, I live in Portland, Oregon. Every fifth person I come across wants to do it with Mother Nature! Haha. BUT, you can't fool Mother Nature.
  Sun. 6/12/11 1:58am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

This is the GOOD years for dancehall I was telling you about! Late 80s and early 90s, preferably Sly & Robbie produced tracks.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:03am Adam in Portland:

"Tears" sure is a pretty track; one I had not heard before.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:04am Joe McG:

I love Kotch's voice.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:05am Adam in Portland:

Woooooof, me too!! Like I do Gregory Isaacs' as well.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:12am Adam in Portland:

Joe, next you can play some Joyce McKinney Experience. Haha.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:17am Brian in UK:

Mornin' everyone. Some great group names today, Joe.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:20am Adam in Portland:

  Sun. 6/12/11 2:23am Adam in Portland:

Joe, I felt exactly the same way when the Sonic's Rendezvous Band box set came out a few years back.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:24am Joe McG:

I hear you, Adam. All those years of, like, two singles, and then: BAM!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:26am Adam in Portland:

  Sun. 6/12/11 2:27am Adam in Portland:

This Mickey Newbury is wonderful, and brand new to me.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:28am Joe McG:

I'll be playing more in upcoming weeks, Adam. I'm so pleased about this box set.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:28am Adam in Portland:

And this whistling would go quite nicely with Steel Mill's flutes.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:29am Adam in Portland:

I'm thankful Drag City did you, and other Mickey Newbury fans, the justice of putting the box out.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:34am Joe McG:

I hope there's a part two of his mid-70s stuff!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:35am D. Blumin:

Newbury box is amazing! And, Adam in Portland, what Steel Mill was missing was a triangle player!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:37am Adam in Portland:

Daniel, I agree. That and the foresight to stick around for some touring with Iron Maiden. I wonder if they did any shows with early Judas Priest. Haha.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:40am Matt from Springfield:

Was this written by John D. Loudermilk? Interesting hearing his version in any case.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:40am D. Blumin:

Keep Feeding the Flames, Adam!!!!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:41am Adam in Portland:

I mean some shows with Elf, at least
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:43am Adam in Portland:

Can we all take a moment to miss Betsy Nichols?
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:43am Joe McG:

@Matt: Yes, he wrote all the songs on the LP. It also includes his version of "Tobacco Road" and "Indian Reservation," big hits for other people.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:45am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! Heard of John Loudermilk as a writer before but he's a great singer, I'm looking into him now!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:55am Adam in Portland:

Another fantastic show, Joe. Excited to have received your great premium in the mail today. I'm going to run it through tomorrow, and will surely be hitting you up for your own two unreleased track box set soon. ;-)
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:55am Joe McG:

Thanks, Adam! Have a great weekend!
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:57am Adam in Portland:

See you soon, Matt. D. Blumin. All.
  Sun. 6/12/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Goodnight Joe! Adam! Dan Blumin! All!
