hey hey h’lo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08am Ken From Hyde Park:

Dumb Chevy advertisers kept playing Seger's "Like a Rock" in their commercials. I heard that chorus way too many times from those ads.

  3:17am markr:

Hi everybody! Been busy with these short songs, the playlist, etc. How is everybody?
  3:19am markr:

I trust you're all snapping your fingers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Hugo (NL):

Avatar 3:27am Scraps:

I like Tori Amos, but I hate her cover of Smell Like Teen Spirit, specifically because she leaves out the last verse. Why?
  3:28am markr:

Well, thank God it's over, then...Morning, Hugo!
Avatar 3:30am Scraps:

God, I love Hersh. She’s a reliably good one woman show, too; seen her must have been twelve times or more.
Avatar 3:39am Scraps:

And in my complete love/hate comment set, like Bob Seger, like even Night Moves, but boy, hate Old Time Rock r Roll, especially when we heard it =again= because of Tom Cruise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am pacific standard simon:

I need a fricken sandwich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42am Sebastian:

Good morning
  3:42am markr:

I know for a fact that it was Bob's idea to sell that song to Chevy, not because he needed the money (he didn't), but because he wanted to help the Detroit auto industry. I think he's a very cool guy, he obviously has millions of fans who love his later stuff, but really, for me, I'm with him up through "Live Bullet"--which is actually one of the greatest live rock & roll albums ever--and then I'm out. Nothing after that. Bit for his previous work, he gets a lifetime pass, IMHO.
  3:44am markr:

And I've said this on my show before, so not to be boring, but Bob evaluates his work exactly the opposite of me, and hates his early stuff and tries to keep it out of print, but I managed to snag copies of some of those early albums when they came out on CD briefly, so there's always the threat of some early Seger on Circle Time, just like a cloud hanging over us--it might rain, but it might not (probably won't).
Avatar 3:46am Scraps:

dismayed for Abrams death. At least we heard lots of Chicago jazz in the last week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am pacific standard simon:

Smokin' OPs is the best Seger album ever. I'm sure he disagrees .
  3:48am markr:

Abrams was 87, so he lived a rich and full life, but it's still tough when a giant like that passes. Especially when you know he probably won't get nearly the amount of recognition that he deserved. Now if one of the Kardashians dies, stop the presses...that's all we'll hear about for a week.
  3:48am markr:

BTW 28 people dead in that Texas shooting yesterday. We continue to be the stupidest country on earth.
Avatar 3:53am Scraps:

I didn’t know Seger dislikes his early work so much. That’s kinda weird.
  3:55am markr:

I think he considers it raw and amateurish (which is what I like), and his new stuff is more polished and mature (which is what I don't). He's entitled to his opinion, and I'm entitled to mine. And obviously, as I said, millions, and I mean millions of fans disagree with me. I read somewhere that he has the highest net worth of any musician, $87 million or something. I found that hard to believe. But I guess it's possible.
Avatar 3:55am Scraps:

That first Abrams album is so great!!
  3:56am markr:

It's kind of spooky that I played a track from it last week. I just played it because it sounded Halloween-y. I had no idea he had just died.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am pacific standard simon:

He sounds intense. Repo Mn is always intense.
Avatar 4:00am Scraps:

I don’t think millions of Seger fans diasgree with you, simply because I don’t think they’ve heard his early work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am pacific standard simon:

Well said, Scraps.
  4:11am markr:

Well, I mean they disagree with me about his work from the late 70s on, which they love and I don't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am pacific standard simon:

Glenn Close. Mark? Seriously?
  4:19am markr:

My brain froze for a moment. It happens. Often on the air. I knew it was Del Close lol.
Avatar 4:21am Scraps:

(this is great)
  4:22am markr:

Glad you're enjoying it--I'm listening to it as if I never heard it. He's a super nice guy, very accomodating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am Vincent Nifigance:

Yes, this is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am pacific standard simon:

I can see that I've seen a ton of his stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Vincent Nifigance:

I only found out the other day that he directed 3 episodes of 'Eerie, Indiana'!
  4:32am debt collector:

Bob Weinstein?

Good morning from Burlington VT

Recent interview--conducted in Bob's office about a month ago.

Bonjour bonjour Mark !

Bonjour, Pierre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am Vincent Nifigance:

"...a great woman, who happens to be dead right now..."
  4:47am markr:

That's the way he talks--isn't it wonderful?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Vincent Nifigance:

I want him in my life.
Avatar 5:08am Scraps:

When I was a child reader, I didn’t care whether the lead character was a boy or a girl. Sigh. (I was a boy, incidentally.)
Avatar 5:38am Scraps:

Good topic! The first classical album you bought. Mine was George Gershwin, Rhapsody in Blue, American in Paris, Concert in F, conducted by Mitch Miller
Avatar 5:39am Scraps:

Concerto, drat
  5:44am mark r:

I think a version of "Rhapsody in Blue" was one of my first, too--probably among the first ten classical albums I bought. a beautiful version with Michael Tilson Thomas playing the piano. It had a bunch of other Gershwin tunes on it, too.
Avatar 5:47am Scraps:

David Golub played the piano on this one
  5:54am mark r:

Thanks for hanging out with me tonight, friends. Stay tuned for the one and only Clay Pigeon. (Yes, that's his real name--I've seen his birth certificate.)
