Listener comments!

  Sun. 11/25/12 12:11am V:

I like this song
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:11am Holly in NC:

Good morning. Joe! Glad you're playing this - though there's no way I'll spring for the 6 cd shebang...
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:13am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah, there's a bit of an exploitation thing going on with VU releases
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:13am Joe McG:

Hey, V! Hey, Holly! Are there really six discs? Holy moly.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:14am Joe McG:

Pretty soon they're going to put out that tape of Lou Reed's amp.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:15am Joe McG:

Hey, Andrew! Velvesploitation!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:19am Dave in PA:

...when I'm .... straaaaaight
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:19am Destroit:

hello Joe, holly, AW and the entire fun bunch. Let's play in the sandbox shall we.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:20am Uncle Michael:

What an amazing song to cover as an instrumental.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:21am Joe McG:

Hey, Detroit and Uncle Mike: Welcome to the Velvet Sandbox.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:22am Chop Scott:

JOE! I'm here my friend..and happy as ever for the company!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:22am Andrew Waterloo:

Hello Destroit
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:23am Joe McG:

Chop Scott! Thanks, as always, for coming along for the ride!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:24am Uncle Michael:

Just found the Szabo track at Aquarium Drunkard. Whee!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:24am Holly in NC:

Hi Destroit! @Dave - one of my all time faves, oddly heard Thin White Rope cover before original
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:25am Destroit:

Velvet Sandbox is being trademarked as we speak.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:26am Droll:

I haven't heard a set of Beautiful Music like this since the 80's. Incredibly smooov instrumentals, thanks Joe!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:27am Uncle Michael:

Velvet Elevator
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:29am Andrew Waterloo:

ewww.. this sandbox is full of needles and sunglasses
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:29am Joe McG:

@Droll: Thanks, man. I like Uncle Michael's idea: Riding the Velvet Elevator.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:31am Uncle Michael:

I'm good for a six or seven hundred floors.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:35am Destroit:

Haha, Waterloo, dirty filthy after-hours sandbox. It was cool until the new owners ruined it.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:42am Chop Scott:

I'm a fan of the Brooklyn version of the classic Manhattan cocktail-switch out the sweet vermouth for dry --and a lemon peel.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:43am Steve-O:

Hey Joe. First time I've listened to your show, and I'm liking everything I've heard so far, especially the Wilson track. =)
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:43am Joe McG:

Nice! Do they actually call it a Brooklyn? They ought to!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:44am Uncle Michael:

What's in a Staten Island?
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:44am Joe McG:

@Steve-O: Thanks! The show is a little different every week, but I'm glad you like how this one has gone so far. I'm just trying to get the sand out of my mouth.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:47am Andrew Waterloo:

This has a very similar ending to Hey Joe?
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:47am Joe McG:

@AW: You're absolutely right! I never even noticed before!
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:49am Uncle Michael:

I used the White Stripes version of Jolene on a show I did that was mainly rock versions of country songs. Candi Staton could sing me a subpeona and I'd like it.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 12:51am Joe McG:

@UM: You said it. Candi is the greatest.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:53am Andrew Waterloo:

I'm digging up my favourite Roberta Flack record for tomorrow morning... or maybe some late night procrastinative listening
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:53am Uncle Michael:

What's your favorite?
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:54am Andrew Waterloo:

First Take
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:57am Uncle Michael:

I have the vinyl...it's a little worn but I don't mind. $2 bin about three years ago.
  Sun. 11/25/12 12:58am Andrew Waterloo:

vinyl here too.. very good condition..$4
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:02am Uncle Michael:

I wonder if the vast FMU repository has the Jim Weatherly records I can't find.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 1:03am Joe McG:

I'll have to look!
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:04am Uncle Michael:

No cover of this can touch Skip Pitts' opening guitar on the origina.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:05am Uncle Michael:

Joe, see if you can find Midnight Plane to Houston!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 1:09am Joe McG:

@UM: Sorry, but we have a disturbing number of Weather Report albums, but no Jim Weatherly, unless he's in the basement.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:11am muhrvis:

Wow, Hooker...
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:13am Uncle Michael:

I appreciate you checking. Midnight Plane to Houston became Midnight Train to Georgia when Cissy Houston recorded it then again when Gladys recorded it. She also charted big time with several other Weatherly songs. Last Plane is actually about Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett...absolutely true story. Jim and Lee were buddies from Ole Miss where Weatherly has been an All-American at quarterback. He also led a goog band called the Gordian Knot who's album has been reissued on CD,
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:15am Holly in NC:

UM, that is fascinating!
Oh, and Betty xo
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:17am Andrew Waterloo:

I guess Cissy Houston didn't want to be mistaken for the destination in Midnight Plane to Houston.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:19am Uncle Michael:

Actually the producer (name escapes me) just thought the train thing was more evocative...though you're probably right about the name part.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:20am Uncle Michael:

Story is that he actually wrote after hearing Farrah on the phone with Lee and the conversation inspired the song.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:26am Uncle Michael:

Niiiiiice, Joe....thanks!
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:27am Andrew Waterloo:

Houston isn't exactly sexy in any correct sense of the word.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:28am Uncle Michael:

Unless Dean Martin is singing about it.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:33am Andrew Waterloo:

yes indeed
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:33am Uncle Michael:

Swedish Hangover
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:35am Uncle Michael:

I'd sure like to find a copy of this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_OF8eoQYZHPA/TEPqh4SMUiI/AAAAAAAAA_Y/BQAig2r-Cyc/s640/JW-sleeve.jpg
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 1:38am Joe McG:

Too bad! I thought it was going to be a picture of Diana Ross!
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:43am Droll:

Mari sounds like a young Tom Waits.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:44am Uncle Michael:

Joe, do you have access to the PP Arnold version of Angel of the Morning?
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:44am Mike Sin:

Nice! Just in time for "Single File"!
re: Ray Woolf -- great new CD comp of his ouput includes the monster "Little Things That Happen" as well.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 1:46am Joe McG:

@UM: I'm sure I have it at home! Hey, Mike Sin! Thanks for the tip!
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:47am Mary Wing:

Was that last song spinning backward?
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 1:48am Joe McG:

@Mary: No, Mary, that's all you! That's the way it plays forward.
  Sun. 11/25/12 1:54am Uncle Michael:

Hey, KP, how goes it?

Mrs. KP is translating for me. She's the member of the family who has been off the Island,
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:20am Frenchy:

This here is worth pledges, folkz!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 2:20am Joe McG:

@KP: Excellent. "No More Affairs"!
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:21am KP:

Very well. We just saw Silver Linings Playbook. Terrific.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:21am KP:

Speaking of Francaise!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 2:27am Joe McG:

Thanks, Frenchy! I should have you here pitching for me! @KP: How was that movie, anyhow?
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:29am KP:

Great. Really. To see Robert De Niro actually acting, actually working was worth it alone. Highly recommended.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:31am KP:

Is Frenchee posting from a Starbucks? Thought there were no Internets in NE.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 2:35am Joe McG:

I haven't seen DeNiro in anything I've liked for a long time, sadly, so I'd like to see that.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:37am KP:

Right. It's almost shocking. Easy supporting Oscar. And he's in it a lot.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/25/12 2:43am Joe McG:

Wow, really? I'll check it out.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:45am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe, KP.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:46am Brian in UK:

This was our Singing Postman, no contest.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:47am KP:

Hello, Brian.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:47am Julie:

yeah he was really good in that one oh..what was it..that new flick Taxi Driver

Hey, Brian! Nice postman!
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:48am Chop Scott:

Cheers Joe! Thanks for your company.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:49am KP:

I want Maggie Serota's review of Silver Linings Playbook. It's very Philly-centric.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:50am KP:

Little Fockers 3.

Hey, Chop Scott! Thanks to you and everyone for tuning in tonight. I'm nearly done, but do stay tuned for Imaginary Radio with Chris M!
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:52am Brian in UK:

Jennifer Lawrence in Winters Bone was special. Great book by Daniell Woodrell.
Sleep well all.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:55am KP:

She is fantastic in this.
  Sun. 11/25/12 2:58am Brian in UK:

Think she might take over from Loretta Young as my favourite!!
