Hey! Joe. . . the tunes R soundin' mighty fine
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:12pm Joe McG:

Hey, glad to know this thing is working!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:23pm Matt from Springfield:

"Boogie With Joe"!
Glad to catch ya in the afternoon!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:23pm Fiveash:

This is so much better than when that other guy does it. Hey Joe! Me & Amanda are listening to you while feeding chickens in Maine. (Not a euphemism)
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Foul mouthed Joe! FUCK yeah! :)
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:25pm boogie:

diggin' it, McG. Hey! Fiveash; enjoying Maine?
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fiveash: Um...fun? :)
Whatever y'all are doing, have fun doing it!
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:29pm Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! I never had anyone feeding chickens to my show before. At least not the real kind.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:29pm Matt from Springfield:

*Single File* in the afternoon?! Sweet!

Les Cooper and the Soul Rockers makes good bread for a musical sandwich. But I missed "Mickey & the Soul Generation"! Will have to check the Archive for them, a band with that name sounds promising to me.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe!

First web program, but isn't this also your first 2-hour show? You've done 1, 3, but I don't recall any 2s.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:31pm Joe McG:

Hey, Matt from Springfield. Cool to "see" you during the day!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:32pm Chop Scott:

JOE! Hearing you in the daylight, from my darkroom...
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:32pm Joe McG:

@MattF: Chicken scratch for you and Amanda!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:32pm Fiveash:

Joe- Dennis Diken once told me that Dyke and the Blazers were from Phoenix, Arizona, and that "Funky Broadway", improbable as it sounds, refers to Broadway in Phoenix! Boogie: so far so good.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:34pm Fiveash:

Thanks Joe! Although you don't need an excuse to play Slim Harpo on Ichiban. In fact, I think Debbie will fire you if you don't.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:34pm Joe McG:

@MattF: Phoenix! Hanging out with Vincent Furnier, probably. @Chop Scott: Great to see you, sir!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Later release of the Coasters.
That is one down home girl!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh I love this "Red's Dream"! Didn't know who did this! Thank you!

World peace through words and rockin' out!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:39pm Chop Scott:

Very happy be mentioned so close to Alice!
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:41pm Matt from Springfield:

The Muthafuckin' Clovers! Hooray web stream!!
Kudos Bill Mac for digitizing what was probably a dusty "party record" from back in the day!
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:44pm Joe McG:

That Bill Mac is a very naughty man.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Joe Cuba's most popular song, like this one.

Not an "orthodox" Single File, but at least everything seems to be vinyl OR transferred from vinyl.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:48pm mrmucho:

hey Joe! finally catching you live. was just spinning your premium during lunch--great job
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey mrmucho!
Any new favorites you heard from that premium?
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:56pm youbettie:

Thanks for the sweet tunes...makes the day day go by so much easier!
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 1:57pm Joe McG:

Hey, mrmucho! Thanks! Had a great time putting it together. Hey, youbettie! Glad you're diggin' it.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:57pm Matt from Springfield:

SSS label, that's a classic!

"Down from Dover" is amazing, it should be mandatory listening for anyone studying Dolly's catalogue.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:58pm Amanda:

Hi Joe! There is a fan under the table, below the computer monitor, that might cool things off some for you. Maybe you've discovered that already.
  Thu. 8/23/12 1:58pm a_broadinlondon:

Loving this show, esp the duets - cheering up a dreary non-summer London. Thanks...
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:00pm Joe McG:

@Amanda: Found it! Thanks! @a_broad: Cool, glad you like it!
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:02pm mrmucho:

@matt: that Tom T Hall demo caught my ear

@Joe: can you do a FMU basement show again? that was great. I picked up that Lynn Blessing LP and it is an absolute gem.
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Otis Redding + Carla (Thomas)?

@mrmucho: That was good, more of a folk than country re-telling of Harper Valley PTA.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:04pm Joe McG:

Good idea, mrmucho! Maybe I'll do one again in a month or so. It was a lot of fun!
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:05pm Joe McG:

@Matt: Yep, that was Otis and Carla Thomas.
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:11pm Matt from Springfield:

What a party, all these party records today!
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:14pm Matt from Springfield:

This is an amazing cover, so soulful, and a backing track like the Delfonics.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:22pm Joe McG:

Switching gears a bit now, friends....
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:23pm mrmucho:

love the pub rock--so underrated
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:34pm Brian in UK:

Hello Joe in the daytime. Well ain't this a mighty fine track?
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:36pm Joe McG:

Hello, Brian! Wow, seeing so many regulars today. It's just like "Cheers."
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:37pm Brian in UK:

If it ain't Mooncrest it ain't worth a f**k.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:38pm Joe McG:

@Brian: Sounds like a good T-shirt!
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:41pm Brian in UK:

You cookin' Joe. Lord Upminster. Upminster, a station on the District line Underground
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:42pm Joe McG:

Hey, Brian, did you ever see the Ian Dury film biography? Is it any good?
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:43pm Matt from Springfield:

(everyone) Brian!!
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:44pm Brian in UK:

No, Joe
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:46pm mrmucho:

after this set gonna get me a pint and find me a dogtrack
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Stiff #5!

Now if Amanda was listening to the pub rock set, we need to know: was this pub rock "brawl worthy"? :)
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:52pm Matt from Springfield:

"I'm a real gone Jessie"?? That's one for the books!
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 2:54pm Joe McG:

I'm gonna be a real gone Joey shortly!
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:56pm mrmucho:

Joe that box at the foot of your bed is what, like 25' x 10', right?
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:56pm Matt from Springfield:

"Killed in a bar / When he was only 3"! ;D

Hank Thompson WITH His Brazos Valley Boys, never knew he had a band called that. I'm assuming he's from Texas...
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:57pm Brian in UK:

Hey folks '52 was a good year.
  Thu. 8/23/12 2:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Yep, solidly Waco: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Thompson_(musician)
Thanks for a good Rock 'N Soul 'N More Soul 'N Country show today!

A real gone "Joey", about to hop away! ;)
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:00pm boogie:

sho' did enjoy it, McG
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Make sure to bring that Johnny Bond into your next show so we can hear the rest!
