Yes, it is Buddy Miles singing according to the notes.

my noisy industrial project opened for Wexler once in 2010 during my very brief music career. he was really nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42am

Oh, that's cool! Was he playing more noise-type stuff back then? Or was it an "opposites attract" kind of bill?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am

Yay! Ween!
Avatar 9:48am

we were invited by the third act, a great now defunct local Krautrock-y band, who someone knew it would work. MW had a full band and played beautiful hypnotic psych folk stuff!

Happy Nazario Year, Amanda
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am

Ever listened to Dean's solo stuff? Really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am

I have, I love it. Thanks P-9O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am

I also think Aaron Freeman/Gene is seriously one of the best songwriters. And performers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am

I agree, Amanda. That Freeman album from a couple years ago was tremendous. Really told the story of his struggle with addiction and recovery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am
listener james from westwood:

All forms of this theme song give me chills. Maybe not the little bit Bill Murray sings in that lounge. But the others. Mucho ASMR.

ugh, winter rain is the worst!

Hello from work!

i thought this guy was talking about the rain until i checked the playlist
Avatar 10:12am

Interesting observation via a Tom Wilson radio show from back then. Irwin has been presenting them regularly and they are great. The Lou Reed one especially

"Red Rubber Ball" was co-written by Paul Simon, too

Yes it was. I lived a long time before I learned that!
Avatar 10:37am

And RRB was also covered by Mel Tormé and Cliff Richard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am

I'd be in for an all Stepping Stone show. Just saying, in case someone like Joe McG happened to be tuned in.
Avatar 10:38am

Separately, he added. Mel and Cliff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40am

I'd love to do an all-Stepping Stone show! I doubt there are 3 hours worth of Stepping Stone covers, but it would be fun to find out.

Little Danny:

G'morning Amanda and all fellow listeners and dapper cats
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am

Hey, it's dapper Danny! Welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am

There's a handful of hardcore Stepping Stone covers, including Minor Threat and SOA (Stepping Stone Party). That should take care of about 2:33 of the show. Sex Pistols, too. Now you're up to almost four minutes!

Doug Schulkind:

Good morning from AgeWell senior center, Amanda. Play some punk, LOUD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am

Very cool Manfred Mann. 1964? Wow.
Avatar 10:48am

Tom Petty covered it, too. 2 hours 53 minutes to go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am

Sorry I can't help you, @Doug, but maybe the seniors fancy a slow dance at this point?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am

@Stevel - the B-side of Doo Wah Diddy. Sounding a lot like Van Morrison and THEM
Doug Schulkind:

They will love anything you choose, Madam Selector!

Good God! Heh! Love this version of Sunny. Nice pick, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am
Little Danny:

I could easily hang with three hours of "Sunny."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am

Sunny is the name of our newer, self-awaredly adorable golden-doodle, and I think of this song every time I look at her adorable face. (She is also an accomplished thief.)
Avatar 11:04am

I could listen to Mary Wing five mornings a week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am

Yay, Sunny! That seems like the right name for a Goldendoodle.

Hey, nice segue from the Simpson's topic to this TMBG song. You're a true professional, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am

Not true: I collect no money for my Simpsons segues. A nice compliment, @pantz.
Avatar 11:48am

years later i recognize how many incredible gags there are in this episode, but when it first aired, i thought it felt surprisingly mean spirited and amoral for the Simpsons of the time.

Many of you know that two of WFMU's 6-9am early morning hosts are shifting over to the Drummer Stream. Mary Wing and 100% Whatever debuted (always a funny word to see in print) on Tuesday. DJ Micah will be moving his show over to the stream on early Friday mornings, but he will not be on tomorrow. So the schedule of live radio for this Friday remains:

Give the Drummer Some (9-noon, ET) with Doug
Tomorrow's show will be a Soultacular Spectacular. The entire program will comprise all of the powerhouse soul tracks that closed out each of the GTDS shows in 2016.

Hinky Dinky Time (Noon-3pm) with Uncle Michael,
live from Topeka, Kansas

Make radio with Uncle Michael! This Hinky Dinky Time will be crowd-sourced as the listeners program the show. The comments at wfmu.org... will go live by 7:30 ET, tomorrow morning. Come by and post your requests. At noon, we'll hear what we got!

The Jason Elbogen Show (3-6pm) with Jason Elbogen
live from Studio C at WFMU in Jersey City, NJ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am

Turning up. Love Concrete Blonde. No guilty pleasures!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am

@steve It really grew on me as well... for years it was one that I usually skipped when I watched Simpsons DVDs, not because I didn't like it, but because it was just so different in tone from the others.

Ayyy don't mention it. Thank you all for listening today! See you next week.
