  2:09pm Andy S.:

Listening intently while packing for tonight's flight to Manchester, England where -- guess what? -- it's raining.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt: The minute I heard about Allen Toussaint's death, I made a beeline for WWOZ — glad I did. Now it's a couple of days later, and I could stand for a second line about now, so thanks for waving your hankie!
  2:10pm FinerWhiner:

Do it, Matt.

Hello everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Carmichael:

Eskew Reeder = Esquirita. Of course you already knew that, Matt.
Avatar 2:19pm ndbob:

no doubt this is the only time I've heard "Whirlaway" on two consecutive days - on different stations
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm doctorjazz:

Hey all, off to a great start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Lizardner Dave:

Loving this. Thanks Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Carmichael:

Man, I WILLED this Ernie K Doe song. I swear I reached through your mind, moved your hand and put this on myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Gaylord Fields:

Let us never forget Allen Toussaint's constibution to music!
Avatar 2:32pm Maslaki:

Well said, Matt. I saw him twice in the last year, and he was as great as ever.
Avatar 2:33pm Mailman Tom:

Like fine wine, this music gets better with time. Thanks, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Matt F:

Gaylord: I dunno if this is what the original framers of the Constibution had in mind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Matt F:

I forgot to back announce the first set! Oh well, those of you that can read, please read the first set aloud to those who can't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm doctorjazz:

This is all just making me smile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Uncle Michael:

All the Toussaint songs I *don't* know...I love it.
  2:42pm mr c:

Shoot Matt, Shoot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Carmichael:

The Yardbirds did a great version of this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

One thing I'm very thankful for is how lovingly played and celebrated AT's music was all over the WFMU schedule for so, so many years before we lost him. He truly LIVED here and still will.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, you hearing rumors of Aroldis Chapman to the Red Sox?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Carmichael:

I had always thought this was Herb Alpert. I stand corrected.
  3:00pm Nate K:

PBS digital and on-demand has a Toussaint performance from Austin City Limits from a few years back.
  3:02pm Nate K:

That Lee Dorsey anecdote about being a mechanic is a keeper. Never knew it.
  3:02pm Harm Reductionist:

Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Carmichael:

Do you have a link, Nate?
  3:05pm Nate K:

I watched it on Apple TV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Nate K:

I can hardly imagine what Toussaint's second line is going to be like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Melissa Jean:

now I have a better understanding of exactly why Lee Dorsey was in an auto shop (after the record shop!) for that "Coal Mine" viddy.
Avatar 3:20pm Maslaki:

Has everyone seen the DVD "Piano Players Rarely Ever Play Together", featuring AT, Professor, and Tuts Washington? Hard to find, but excellent.
Avatar 3:21pm Dominick:

Sensory overload achieved!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Matt F:

Avatar 3:30pm Dominick:

I was thinking the same thing about that Coke ad. Best!
  3:37pm Jh:

Really great show, Matt. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, Matt. (Also, hi.) Loved the show.
  3:44pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Let me add my voice to the chorus--a fine, sweet tribute, Matt. You're helping ease a heavy heart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Matt F:

Thank you all so much. Sorry for the lack of commentary, I'm working from the unfamiliar environs of Studio B...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Melissa Jean:

heard this live version on WWOZ Tues - really got me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Nate K:

I'll always regret never seeing one of these Joe's Pub shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm listener james from westwood:

What an utter jewel this track is.
Avatar 3:49pm ndbob:

excellent show Matt!
  3:53pm FinerWhiner:

Great one, Sir Fiveash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Uncle Michael:

Great service Reverend Matt. We got gumbo in the church basement.
Avatar 3:58pm Dominick:

Thank you, sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Uncle Michael:

What a perfect version of Closer Walk for todays outro...wow.
Avatar 3:59pm Maslaki:

Thanks for the great show and excellent close. I look forward to listening to it again...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Parq:

Just catching the tail end here. (Archives ahoy.) That last piece was stunning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm listener james from westwood:

Amazing survey, and it must have been damned tough to narrow it all down. Thanks, Matt.
  6:13pm Mark in Toronto:

Between you and Duane, I think you've got this retrospective tribute pretty well covered. This was a really great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Charlie:

Just listened to the archive -- Thanks for this excellent, heartfelt show, Matt! Definitely helping to play Mr Toussaint into a happy hereafter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Joel:

A joyous celebration of a man and his music.. Thanks, Matt, another inspired show
