Might be a late-arriving crowd, Matt. I hear traffic is backed up all the way to Fort Lee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm listener james from westwood:

doug, as much of a shit-show as this bridgegate thing (and our governor) are, this tweet made me laugh: twitter.com...

howdy all! rumors abound of bonus fiveash in the spazz slot tonight.

I had NOTHING to do with it.

I believe Jon Stewart made a boss/Christie reference last night. Then there's this: twitter.com...

ah, good to know. looking forward to it!
Avatar 2:09pm glenn:

jimmy played on i can't explain, too.

amazon wants 45 bucks for a cassette of my back pages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Gaylord Fields:

Please don't tell me that Jimmy Page died!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Matt F:

No, he's 70 today. He outlasted Phil Everly after all.
Avatar 2:12pm Ted Barron:

I dare you to play "Stairway to Heaven."
Avatar 2:12pm glenn:

the dolly parton version.
Avatar 2:13pm glenn:

ooops. jimmy's back pages. me not copy editor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Matt F:

Ted- I don't remember laughter. Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Other common denominator on most of these songs: Mickie Most
Avatar 2:14pm duke:

I listened to Stairway to Heaven the other day because Led Zep showed up on Spotify. I realized it was the first time I had it in years where it was a spoof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Who is most definitely dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Matt F:

Gaylord- would you be bummed if Pagey died because of the loss of a musical giant or because it would mean a lot of extra work for you?
Avatar 2:19pm glenn:

the mickie most thing is a bit odd, since it seems like nobody could stand him or the songs he wanted people to record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt: When Jimmy Page dies, I'll just claim he played guitar on all those Burt Bacharach sessions. Done, and done!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Matt F:

Ha! I know, we could probably get away with playing all kinds of stuff and claiming he played on it. God knows he would!
Avatar 2:24pm glenn:

plus he would claim a writer's credit.
Avatar 2:28pm still b/p:

What The World Needs Now Is A Whole Lotta Love!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt F; @glenn: He's probably even claimed that he actually painted Leonard Chess' house.
Avatar 2:29pm Ted Barron:

That's a guitar solo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Nate K:

Matt I beg you to play something off the Death Wish III soundtrack.
  2:31pm Leaf:

I admit that Stairway to Heaven is my all-time favorite song and I want it played at my wake. Really.
Avatar 2:31pm glenn:

hell, every 70 year old woman in montreal claims to have "painted" leonard cohen's "house".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: I will resist making "smoked meat" or "poutine" jokes (but I won't resist implying them).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Matt F:

Nate K- Let me instead recommend that everyone go watch Death Wish 3 right now! Indescribably great/awful.
  2:40pm Leaf:

Why are so many "cool" people unable to acknowledge Led Zeppelin's greatness as a band? Why is that uncool? I think real music lovers have to be able to hear it....
Avatar 2:41pm northguineahills:

I dig Zeppelin. As for my coolness factor, that's up for debate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Nate K:

Great choices here for the Everly Bros. Got any Phil solo? (Not that I'm complaining...)
Avatar 2:42pm glenn:

led zeppelin IS great. however, stairway to heaven is 8 minutes of execrable dreck.
Avatar 2:43pm glenn:

i don't think there's any dispute that everybody's been pretty cool for the past week or so.
Avatar 2:46pm northguineahills:

Boo...., glenn...... ;)

Avatar 2:48pm glenn:

uh huh. i'd like to point out that all that cold air passed over me before it got to you.
Avatar 2:50pm glenn:

just to bring it all full circle, pagey and john paul jones played on two yanks in england.
  2:57pm Nate K:

Never heard this version of "Air..." before. I think I'm going to cry.
Avatar 3:01pm glenn:

unfortunately, the greatness of air that i breathe is cancelled by the abject awfulness of he ain't heavy, he's my brother.
Avatar 3:07pm glenn:

conway - ewwwwwww.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Townshend claims Page only played fuzz rhythm on 'Can't Explain' flipside - 'Bald Headed Woman', because he (Pete) didn't have a fuzzbox, & the 'Can't Explain' lead was so simple even *he* could do it (certainly many live films of him doing back then) - so he says...not sure which is the greater embellisher...

...I hear Zep, I think 'Great 70s Music' !
- I hear The Wh♂ - I just think - 'Great Rawk !'...
...I always say though - to the ZepHater - watch some 'How the West Was Won' - & get back to me on that dude...
Avatar 3:08pm Joe McG:

Hooray, some Conway Twitty! Thanks, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Matt F:

RRN63- Pretty sure Pete sez in the book that Page played the solo as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- really !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Pete's new autobiog. ?
...Zep was supposed to inherit the disgruntled Wh♂ rhythm section - & they even named them 'Lead Zeppelin'
- so - as a Wh♂fan I just get miffed when TheWh♂'s not given props - not even mentioned in books or whatever when Zep's roots/antecedents are discussed - yerknow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...if so - then Pete's told it both ways over time...
Avatar 3:19pm glenn:

not quite. keith moon was asked what the new yardbirds should be renamed s and he said "call them lead zeppelin, that's what they're going to go over like".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & that was the name !
Avatar 3:20pm northguineahills:

I never got into the Who, for some reason. I had college roommates who were really into them, and if I objectively look back, they actually have some killer tunes. So I can't explain it. I don't even own a Who rekkid. I might have to remedy that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& some say Entwistle said it, not Moon - & on & on...
Avatar 3:21pm northguineahills:

Woah, Gregory Isaacs did "End of the World"? Holy smith!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's also notable this compare/contrast thing - as Zep is the model for Metal to such a degree, & The Wh♂ for Punk...

- goshdarnit - I wanna listen to both streams !...
Avatar 3:25pm earrie:

Two echoes from Joe's show this morning and a Conway Twitty complement. What're the odds?
Avatar 3:26pm northguineahills:

Darnit, something on Pressure Sounds I don't have....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm listener james from westwood:

been working but been diggin' the hell out of the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Matt F:

I heard that on Joe's show this AM for the first time and I am not ashamed to admit it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Matt F:

the Joe Higgs I mean.
Avatar 3:29pm earrie:

Good listeningk, both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Joe's show' - ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Stanley:

Play it again. Play it again.
Avatar 3:31pm Kristin:

Yes. I also enjoy copying all my favorite DJs. Tomorrow: a Jimmy Page and Phil Everly tribute show.
Avatar 3:31pm northguineahills:

I heard it this 'morn via Joe as well....thanks for playing some more....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh yes - of course, Thx kat.
  3:31pm ccrides:

If 'it' feels good...play 'it'!!!...:)O(:..
  3:32pm Leaf:

You all rock!!! Glenn, "Stairway to Heaven" as dreck? You rock a little less, my friend.
  3:33pm drr:

Matt (or anybody), ever heard the Ka-Nives? Formerly of Houston Texas? They used to kill this song, like they killed everything else they played.
Avatar 3:33pm earrie:

@Kristin That's quite the leap to 'clone'.
  3:34pm drr:

('This song' being 'Let's Dance'.)
  3:35pm ccrides:

Robert and Roger were both so sexy on stage it was worth watching them no matter what the music did!!!...hehehe...:)O(:..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Matt F:

drr- nope, but I trust your taste in killin' bands. Any recordings out there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Stairway' is great - just a touch pompous, & *massively* overplayed - which could kill anything - & probably has...even make you think The Wh♂ were nothing but three songs & wonder what the fuss was about...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm SeanG:

woo hoo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I never understood how pros could stand singing the same songs all the time in the 1st place !...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Stanley:

Woo-Hoo indeedy. Clicked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- seriously - whata playlist...okay I'm on this stream for a bit...
  3:46pm ccrides:

Funky guitar!!!...:)O(:..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I usually Werk Thur.s - so I haven't worked this dilemma out yet !...Okay - there's Archives - I really need to come to terms w/ that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Gaylord Fields:

I like how Lowell Fulsom/Fulson takes the song to a more Dr. Seuss-like place.
Avatar 3:47pm northguineahills:

I shuffle b/tn streams all the time, or play both simultaneously. MCIAA is a really fun band. Italian space non-sense jams, usually pianissimo.
  3:48pm drr:

Wow, I didn't know this (Bread Maker) was Slim Harpo. I love the Lazy Lester version recorded in the 2000s.
Re: Ka-Nives, not much recorded stuff (an LP and a single) aaaand one CD compiiation with "Let's Dance" on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Matt F:

Gaylord, yes! "Why Don't We Do It In Our Socks". etc.
  3:48pm ccrides:

Only in 'your' mind...Gaylord..!..hehehe...:)O(:..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm guessing SirMacca loved that (was only Paul & Ringo on original if anybody didn't know)...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Doug Schulkind:

This track is dedicated to Amiri Baraka (in my head).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's also this weird resistance to Archives - like LiveStreams make me feel in touch, & like I'm not missing something; I think Droll quoted efd as saying Archives are like mixtapes w/ people talking...
  3:56pm ccrides:

kat330 check out how Chris T gets all excited about 'fuzz', on Tuesday's show...hehehe...great stuff..!..:)O(:..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- what's wrong w/ emoticons - ?? Plaintext has distinct limits.
...& yeah - honestly - the Community on Boards is big - obviously...
- Yeah - on Chris T - all us boys effusing about fuzzboxes... ... ...
