Listener comments!

  11:12am seang:

Dancing in the library! the stacks boogie
  11:13am paul:

Michael, disregard email. Playlist is up and running.
  11:19am paul:

I saw a DVD of a recent live N. Lowe show. I know he's older, but he is realllllly mellow these days. Miss the rockers.
  11:45am rick:

What album does the Cash song come from? It doesn't sound like one of the songs from the American Recordings albums.
  11:50am Red:

Don Grady was Robbie
  11:52am MS:

It is from the 80's - also on his box set, also on a one sided 12" from the time
  11:52am Red:

I liked Don Grady's "Good Man to Have Around the House"
  11:55am rick:

Wow! Michael, you are channeling the Beastmaster Billy Kelly this morning as I've heard both the Muffs song and the Yellow Balloon on his show. Now you need to play The Third Bardo or The Seeds or some other obscure garage band!
  12:10pm david:

Wasn't it Bobby Goldsboro who what the hit with "The Straight Life?'" Crackers and beer, indeed.
  12:14pm Mike Sin:

"Wichita Lineman" -- The Glen Campbell album that originally featured "The Straight Life" -- also includes his fine version of "The Dock of the Bay"!
  12:18pm MS:

Bobby, Glen & Sonny all recorded it about the same time & all three are #1 hits!
  12:20pm rick:

I saw Junior Brown at the Continental Club in Austin in 1996; I think he had a usual Sunday show there. He was great. I also saw him Central Park opening for Morphine, which was an odd pairing. He is an innovator with that Guit Steel guitar and should be a country star, but isn't in the era of booty shakin Nashville.
  12:20pm paul:

Johnny's version of Without Love is on The Essential Johnny Cash 1955-1983 (Disc 3)
  12:26pm david:

I love it. Since I'm in Ohio, I have to listen to #1 Hits online, which makes for some weird weekend scheduling. Best two hours anywherre. Manfred Mann had the #1 hit with Pretty Flamingo.
  12:27pm Hatch:

How is it that only you and I have played this Green track on FMU in the recent past??!?! Such a mega ultra #1 hit.
  12:33pm paul:

A little different than Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak.
  12:35pm Michael:

Hatch, indeed!
Proof that the world is a terrible place.
  12:37pm david r:

Some of the best toy piano you'll ever here. God bless NRBQ!
  12:37pm paul:

"The world is a terrible place." Marmalade (Reflections)
  12:38pm david r:

Make that "hear". I am not that much of an idiot.
  12:39pm BigJay:

  12:40pm rstvmo:

show great.
  12:40pm Chuck E. Jesus:


although the cymbals are too hissy
  12:41pm chuck in ct:

great show today .....how about sum ramones
  12:49pm paul:

One of the eclectic MS shows ever. And that's saying something.
  8:34am Archive Listener Frank:

The Johnny Harris Mr. Tambourine arrangement has to be sarcasm.
  8:42am Michael Shelley:

Absolutely not.
That's a great recording!
I edited it down to make it short & sweet.
In fact, I NEVER play a song just to be sarcastic - a wast of time.
  10:12am Archive Listener Frank:

Nope, Johnny Harris was the one being sarcastic. That would have been a great 50's hi-fi album title: Sarcasm in Music.
