  Sun. 8/26/12 12:06am Destroit:

Hello Joe and all the good people. Glad to be here.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:08am Joe McG:

Hey, Destroit. What are you destroiting this evening?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:12am Destroit:

My general health Joe, gorging on chocolate and cheese :)
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:13am Joe McG:

How overWeening of you!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:16am Holly in NC:

Hello Joe & Destroit!
Will be quiet, listening on my android Samsung, happily pissing Apple off & still horrid @ texting :-)

Cheese here too! La Serena, Springbrook Tarentaise, Rogue Caveman, oh yeah.

Joe, will you be honoring Neil Armstrong?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:16am anne:

hey Joe!!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:17am Destroit:

Ha, Good lord that was awful.
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:18am Destroit:

Hello holly!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:18am Joe McG:

Hey, Holly! Good music for androids right now. No plans to honor Neil--I didn't know he was dead until Blumin said so! Hey, Anne! Anne from Chi-town?
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:21am Destroit:

Just to clarify, weening reference=awful. Music is nice so far Joe!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:24am Joe McG:

Thanks, Destroit! I know my puns are rotten, but I can't help it!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:31am jeff-m:

evening man
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:32am Joe McG:

Hey, Jeff! Pardon my indecision!
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:32am Holly in NC:

Really like this new Limiñanas lp.
  Sun. 8/26/12 12:36am Destroit:

Dies anyone else think that the liminanas track sounds like the Beatles "if I needed someone"?
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 12:44am Joe McG:

I have to hear it again to decide, I think.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:05am Destroit:

This lounge bossanova groove is great, keep Movin'
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

All hail those 3 Kings of Terepia!
Hello Joe and everyone!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! How do you fare?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:11am KP:

Hey, Joe.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:12am Joe McG:

Hey, KP. What ho!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

Fare? No charge!
The Spanish cava I'm sipping tonight is more than fair however!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:19am Joe McG:

What's a cava, Matt?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:21am Matt from Springfield:

Spanish "champagne", sparkling wine. Nice, affordable, and if you like champagne really BRUT, this is a good one to have.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:23am Joe McG:

Wow, champagne! Special occasion?
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

Naw, just like bubbly! :)
There's another finer champagne I have saved in case of really special occasions.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:26am KP:

Champagne? And me out of diet coke!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, hypnotizing vibes in the background!

@KP: Find some more bubbly! Beer is acceptable :)
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:33am KP:

Don't want to bum you out but beer was long time ago. Closest thing to it is listening to Joe.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:37am Holly in NC:

I can't believe you have this 7in! How very wonderful!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

Listening to Joe at a steady rate will zone you out more and more with each minute.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

And Johnny Bond continues in full, as promised!

Hello there Holly!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:38am KP:

West-Bryant, unbelievable bubba,
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:39am Joe McG:

@Holly: A bit scratched up, unfortunately! @Matt: I still had it in my bag, and I remember you asked!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:39am Holly in NC:

Hi Matt!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

Wooooo! That makes us proud Drunks! :D
Thanks Joe!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:46am Joe McG:

You bet, Matt. One for the Elwood P. Dowds.
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:47am KP:

Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:51am Joe McG:

Also scratchy, but the horns come through loud and clear!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

Loud and clear! What a theme!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:56am Dean:

Listening in Hong Kong - excellent way to start the day
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:57am Joe McG:

Nice! Welcome, Dean!
  Sun. 8/26/12 1:58am KP:

Arkade? Any substantive links? for us to find out?
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 1:59am Joe McG:

@KP: It's a tough one to research. Just a lot of hits for video games!
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am Joe McG:

Arkade is probably a Steve Barri concoction: he produced it and cowrote it with Price and Walsh.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am KP:

Link to the film "Tender Mercies."
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 2:00am Joe McG:

Oh, and Roger Nichols engineered it with Phil Kaye! Very informative label!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:02am KP:

Oddly enough we were going use "Middle of the Road" but it was taken.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:02am KP:

Oddly enough we were going use "Middle of the Road" but it was taken.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Ask Clay Pigeon about Arkade! I see it's a Dunhill-ABC record, Clay has talked extensively about the style of that label and the bands on it.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:10am KP:

guitar lightning is too much!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

Looking forward to that Radio Free Culture.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

I remember Scott McKenzie. A tribute to his other songs would be fantastic--I haven't heard anything else by him and would like to learn.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:15am KP:

What a great voice.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:17am KP:

There's a young woman singer from UK (via Pakistan, i think) named Rumer. She just put out an album and her cover of this is best thing on it. but all cool. She sounds exactly like Karen Carpenter.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:19am KP:

The arrangements and choice of songs are like the Carpenters too. It's sort of mesmerizing.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Just "Rumer"? Love Karen and her style of vocals, I need to check Rumer out!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:24am KP:

Recommend very highly. Esp that PF Sloan song.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

Here's another P.F. Sloan, as sung by The Grass Roots, orig established by PF as a vehicle to record and release his songs!

Thanks for the rec, KP.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:25am KP:

OK "PF Sloane" is a song title that is entirely a real person's name. I can only think of "Alex Chilton" as being same way.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 2:27am Joe McG:

There's a fun game: name all of the songs named after rock stars. Me first: "Deborah Harry" by Family Fodder.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:30am Matt from Springfield:

Billy Bragg "Levi Stubb's Tears"
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:31am Matt from Springfield:

Weezer "Buddy Holly"
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am KP:

Right but never heard of that one. i just realized it would have to be be real people in rock. Bob Dylan alone has about 30 civil rights songs with real names as titles.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am Joe McG:

American Music Club: "Johnny Mathis' Feet."
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:32am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: Ballads of, Stories of, Lonesome Deaths of...
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:33am KP:

"Buddy Holy" fits, category is just the name.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:34am KP:

Matt, yeah all that cheery stuff.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:35am Marmalade Kitty:

morning Joe, everyone. I kinda recognise that childrens rhyme fromk somewhere..
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, is this the duo usually known as Chad & Jeremy??
Never knew they went into Baroque psychedelia in the mid 60s!!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Hiya Kitty!

You mean the "cabbages and kings" intro? That was from "The Walrus and The Carpenter" by Lewis Carroll!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:38am Marmalade Kitty:

fromk? ..thanks Matt! :)
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

Lewis C. was the *original* "Go ask Alice"! :)
Don't know what was going through his mind, or what he was imbibing, but what an early psychedelic satirist and fantasy writer!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:48am KP:

Did you read "Papa john,' that probably has more insight into PF Sloane.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:52am KP:

This is already great.
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:56am Holly in NC:

Most excellent. Thanks Joe!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:57am KP:

hmmm unanticipated Phil Schaap turn.
Avatar Sun. 8/26/12 2:57am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everyone! See you next week!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

So tranced-out from this...rude awakening when the show ends!

Thanks Joe for another amazing episode! Have a good night KP, Holly, Kitty and everyone else grooving along to the music!
  Sun. 8/26/12 2:58am KP:

Thank you!
  Sun. 8/26/12 3:00am Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks Joe! Good night peeps!
