That's it! Thanks, Greg.

This is GREAT!
  Mon. 2/8/16 12:07pm Listener Robert:

True, Greg. Until yesterday I'd forgotten that he uses that fragment, which IIRC was not among the selections on the last Morricone Is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 12:07pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@Parq: Devin played it on Thursday and it was driving me NUTS. "Where the hell do I know this from?!"
  Mon. 2/8/16 12:07pm Listener Robert:

I meant until Sat. Oh, well, weekend kind of blurs into 1 day.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:07pm drr:

I'm thinking, "This sounds a lot like the music that plays during the NFL audio-only feed during the commercial breaks..."
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:07pm Cliff:

LOL Greg, I was wondering where the hell I'd heard this before
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:09pm Cliff:

And jeez, ANOTHER great musician died recently?!
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:09pm Claw!:


nice selections. Mr. B
  Mon. 2/8/16 12:09pm Listener Robert:

"The Lineman" also got used as the music in the Simpson cartoon montage of Mrs. Simpson's Mafia-controlled pretzel biz.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:10pm Parq:

I didn't know Spence had just died. What a time for him to go, one day before SB50.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:10pm Cliff:

Maybe they're planning an amazing all-star festival up in heaven
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:10pm Parq:

Cliff, yeah, with Alan Rickman as emcee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 12:11pm Mick:

Whoa, great set to start things off! Hail and Farewell Sam Spence.

- very Kewl - SpaghettiWestern-esque work.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:13pm Cliff:

Yep, I really liked that show Ken From Hyde Park
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:13pm Parq:

That was a terrific set, Joe, and I think the "Rock Music Reports" people would agree that youth should be encouraged toward healthy interests like football.

"On the frozen tundra of Lambeau field, tw sets of men faced one another in an epic battle to decide the fate of all makind. They were behemoths, and they were in a mood to tangle."

Am surprised Mr. Spence was on the Tommy Boy label!
  Mon. 2/8/16 12:16pm Listener Robert:

A few weeks ago one of the DJs here played "Drunken Sailor", and whenever I think of that song I think of the rubato-ed NFL Films version, of which I don't know whether it's by Spence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 12:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Soundtrack Artists aren't afraid of large palettes & open up sound for everyone.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:19pm Cliff:

I need to fill up my iPod with Sam Spence, then he can be the soundtrack for my life
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 12:19pm Todd-o-phonic:

I wanted to throw a challenge flag on the halftime show last night. That was even worse than the miserable game itself.

RIP Dan Hicks;<
he was a fixture and local legend
at the Old Mil Tavern
Mill Valley, Marin county, CA
afternoons and evenings
in the mid-seventies
we were setting up sound for
Rowdy & the Rivets
just starting out in
the entertainment biz
he would sit quietly at the bar
keeping generally to himself
but could be seen smiling
and enjoying the country rock
soundchecks and shows
  Mon. 2/8/16 12:42pm George Kopp:

Looking forward to Girls on Grass, really likin' the CD from the rent party show, Joe.

Nicely written, sung, played, arranged & broadcast. (Let's face it - anyone can bash Chuck Berry riffs real loud; some taste & ideas & ability can go a real long way...)

if you image search "girls on grass" you don't get pictures of reefer; but you don't get pictures of this band either.
- you get pictures of girls.

One of them is called "CRAZY GIRL SLEEPING ON GRASS", but she doesn't look crazy to me, just a hippie chick
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 1:24pm Cliff:

Though maybe she smoked some grass, then fell asleep...on the grass

Still have my vinyl copies of the Television albums in the rack. They were just so different than everyone out at the time.

Thanks for the link RR3, at work, will get to read it later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 1:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They don't mention the Dead or Quicksilver. 'Marquee Moon' actually reminds me of 'Blonde on Blonde'.

Nice one glenn!...Ghosts of San Francisco lately - sadly many passings...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 2:05pm Nate K.:

Really enjoying the new Freakwater, per usual with them.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:07pm glenn:

every year, thousands of people around the age of 70 die. it just so happens that we're hitting that time when a lot of the folks dying are musicians who are that age.
  Mon. 2/8/16 2:07pm Mark R.:

Really like this Freakwater album a lot. I've heard quite a few cuts on your show now. Love the harmonies and the fuzzy guitar. And they're just about as country as I can usually stand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/8/16 2:08pm doctorjazz:

I always thought I heard the Dead in Television myself.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:09pm David Shortell:

January 26 at the Brighton Bar I saw a group called "Animal Masks", who I was told featured Dave DeCastro of the Miracle Three. I remarked on what I thought was his resemblance to Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner. Then six days later -- well, you know what happened.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:10pm glenn:

not that i'm trying to be any kind of a downer, but let's keep things in perspective.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:11pm Joe B:

Thanks for tuning in everyone, digging the comments, can't respond to them all, always a little hectic with a live band in the studio; it is appreciated!
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:12pm Cliff:

Yeah but glenn, most people live into their 80's in the developed world. Though musicians are probably short of the bell curve given their typical lifestyle
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:12pm Cliff:

And nice show today Joe :)
  Mon. 2/8/16 2:13pm Mark R.:

Wow, man, the colors are so groovy!
  Mon. 2/8/16 2:14pm Mark R.:

BTW that NFL music made me feel nine years old in my pajamas on a Saturday morning--NFL films were much better than the actual games could ever be!
  Mon. 2/8/16 2:17pm John Baumgartner:

Great show, Joe.
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:20pm David Shortell:

I recently borrowed that San Francisco Nuggets book set from the Toms River library and thought that Fifty Foot Hose track was the best thing on it. I'd never heard of them before but it appears they put out an LP in 1967. And supposedly when the band broke up, many of them joined the cast of "Hair"!
Avatar Mon. 2/8/16 2:20pm Parq:

Dang, two weeks in a row I've been out of the room for Freakwater.

"When it doubt, go to Charlie Fathers," genuine life advice.

Tom Petty's still my favorite Super Bowl halftime, too, Glenn.
