Listener comments!

  1:26pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey Rex! We met at the marathon. I was answering phones when you were co-hosting - I sat right next to you. Welcome back to the airwaves.
  1:29pm Joe R:

Your wife listens to this show?? Kidding. I never miss it and often replay it during the work week. Thanks for the years of that crazzzzzy music.
  1:31pm Michael:

You don't have to be a "fool" to listen to "Fools Paradise" but it helps. Love the show!
  1:35pm Dan Howell:

What was your favorite act at Ponderosa Stomp? Mine was definitely Cyril and Ron from Flamin' Groovies. WFMU should have hosted an event down there.
  1:35pm ted:

P Stomp was great. Does anyone have contact info for Josh Styles? (I don't do Myspace)
  1:36pm Mupp:

Pair a Dice songs ?
  1:36pm ted:

Frlamin' Groovies! The only reason I went.
  1:38pm lando:

can anyone tell me what the fools paradise theme song is called?
  1:46pm hazmania:

Funnel of Love - Twice! Wanda was in much better voice than I expected.
Now a bonafide Mug-N-Bun, Lockhart, and Ponderosa Stomp alumni.
  1:48pm ted:

Wanda was very good. I had no idea ? was such a ?
  1:49pm Mark Dillman "Daddy-o Dilly":

Sage advice from Babs.
  1:49pm Mupp:

The SNACK..and how to get it
  1:50pm Daddy-o:

I'm glad Wanda was great the Ponderosa Stomp. She is the Queen!
  1:53pm ted:

As someone said from the stage, The nice (or was it sweet?) lady with the nasty voice.
  1:55pm Joe R:

To Lando- One of Rex's themes is "Shawnee" by the Premiers. I have it on the Desperate Rock n Roll V 3 comp. I'm sure Mr D has it on a 45, probably also autographed by all the band members.
  1:58pm jmd:

Wow! This Chicken Pot Pie track is way fantastic. Thanks.
  2:00pm Dave Rhoden:

ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
chicken pot pie!
can't wait to see who the artist is
(and I do mean ARTIST)
  2:03pm hazmania:

I never knew she was so tiny. They literally had to put a footstool down so she could get into the van when she left. It's crazy hearing that voice whooping, yodeling,etc. so strongly from such a small, frail lady. It's great she is getting the accolades she deserves. Surreal moment - on the balcony listening to Roy Loney describing what a great, friendly guy James Burton is backstage while turning into Bonnie Raitt entering as I head to the bar.
  2:04pm Mupp:

Careful which melons you be thumpin
  2:05pm danhowl:

did everyone feel the room tension rise when Wanda gave her testimony? I thought the crowd handled it wall though.
  2:07pm ted:

I just substitute cheeses for jesus whenever that happens
  2:08pm hazmania:

I toasted her faith with a shot
  2:10pm ted:

Satin loves you!
  2:12pm lando:

Thanks Joe!
  2:12pm Joe R:

and you can substitute melon thumpin' for Bible thumpin'
  2:15pm Mupp:

And maybe Humpin or sumpin
  2:17pm ted:

Then you might as well use fuck instead of luck
  2:18pm hazmania:

Did anyone else hit the record show? I arrived with 20 minutes left and really didn't get to look much. I did score a mint copy of The Addicts Sing though.
  2:32pm ted:

Oh, BTW, we are performing naked tonight http://www.sonicuke.com/index1.php
  2:46pm Peter:

Nice drop in, Rex!
  2:47pm WOW:

What a SET !
  2:54pm ted:

Who, me? We are opening and closing the hour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApHJbhM-JQE
  2:54pm muhrvis:

awesome stuff. thanks.
  2:55pm Mupp:

Lord Fauntleroy and Lord Buckly should have had a throw down..show these young upstarts whats what !
  2:57pm Daddy-o Dilly:

I am about half way through John Broven's wonderful book. I just finished his interview with Gene Goodman. PLEASE read this book! See if your library can get a copy on the shelf!
  3:01pm Joe R:

Is Broven's book kind of like Charlie Gillette's "Sound of the City"? That book opened my eyes to the influence the independent record companies had on the growth and spread of rock'n'roll.
  3:03pm Daddy-o Dilly:

Joe: You're right on target, brother!
  3:21pm Mark Dillman "Daddy-o Dilly":

Doo-Wop Classics Vol. 9 [Beltone Records]
label: createspace
available from Amazon
Mah Mah (Chicken Pot Pie) The Leopards
  5:48pm Joe Shultz:

Great Show Rex,
now let's go pound some Budweisers and get'em next week
  6:21pm Tom Stein:

Listening to your show while reading the hardcover re-issue of Humbug magazine. A perfect combination!
