Welcome everybody!

Hail Hail Rock n Roll
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13am coelacanth∅:

favorite Chuck Berry songs: maybeline; his cover of Charles brown's "drifting blues".

  3:14am markr:

I think "Maybelline" was his first single, or the first single he ever wrote--something like that. Actually haven't heard his version of "Drifting Blues"--I like when he does a slow blues, he's got a nice touch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am coelacanth∅:

he did drifting blues justice, in my opinion - i might even like his version better than the original
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am coelacanth∅:

ffff- love this one!
  3:18am markr:

Me too--he crammed a lot of lyrics/ideas/action into this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19am coelacanth∅:

yeh...also "brown eyed handsome man"
Avatar 3:19am CDToaster:

(mta) Tony's favorite CB song is "Anthony Boy" from his "Berry Is On Top" album. Hope you can play it for us. It was a huge hit back in the day circa 195-something. If you're not familiar with it, it's a real winner.
  3:20am markr:

Of course, Tony would love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am coelacanth∅:

(58 that would probably be)
Avatar 3:26am CDToaster:

Yes, you're correct; I was in the 1st grade and trying to make it with my first girlfriend. The family would turn it up loud when it came on the radio and we'd all danced around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am coelacanth∅:

hahaha i know you're playing Chuck Berry so figured that was a miscue but that version of jumpin' jack flash is The Best version! with the possible exception of Leon Russel's version from woodstock
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30am coelacanth∅:

..(no not woodstock but the concert for bangla desh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32am coelacanth∅:

CDT that's pretty funny - tryin' to make a girl in the first grade! a pre-pubescent boy after my own heart!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35am coelacanth∅:

i managed to see Chuck Berry - on his 60th birthday, if i remember correctly; and he was pretty amazing. (the paladium, nyc?...i have the ticket stub, somewhere)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am coelacanth∅:

rest in peace Richard Abrams
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Vincent Nifigance:

Morning everyone.
  3:40am markr:

Morning, Vincent. You joined us just in time for the weirdo music.
  3:40am markr:

I think I might have played this one on Halloween, just 'cuz it's spooky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am Vincent Nifigance:

@Mark R YES!
Avatar 3:43am CDToaster:

@coelacan: yeah, I wound-up dating her for almost 4 years from the 1st to the 5th grades. She was the most beautiful girl in the whole school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am coelacanth∅:

greetings Vin¢N
  3:46am markr:

It's a drag when your life peaks at 10, though, CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am coelacanth∅:

ha CDT that's a hero story! i never got the nerve up to tell a girl i liked her until maybe 9th grade! (though i went out with 2 people before that, only because one had followed me home and the other had a mutual friend tell me she liked me)
  3:49am markr:

There was a really foxy girl named Sue Becker in 8th grade. I heard she liked me, then I got cocky, then I heard, "She used to sort of like you, now she thinks you're kind of a jerk." Story of my life.
  3:50am markr:

When I say "foxy," you know it was the 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am coelacanth∅:

ohhh...Jabb! damned if you do damned if you don't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am coelacanth∅:

oh, the 70s... so lots of pubic hair!
...i'm down!
  3:53am markr:

Not that I was seeing any in 8th grade :( (except in Penthouse, of course.)

Giels was a great guitarist. the band would not have existed without him, by any name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am coelacanth∅:

played this on the jukebox at the pub tonight, only the Otis Rush version. my favorite might be fleetwood mac's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am coelacanth∅:

it's time to try this sleep thing i've heard about,
Thank you Mark!
take care
Avatar 4:14am CDToaster:

@markr: lol, no, my life didn't "peak" at 10 - it was just getting started. At 65 next week, I'm finally slowing down a bit but I can still party down for ONE night! G'nite coelacanth... nice talking with you.
  4:14am markr:

Welcome Debt. G'night, Coel, thanks for tuning in!
  4:15am markr:

Glad to hear it, CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am pacific standard simon:

Is this thing on?

ha ha
  4:17am markr:

Hi Simon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am pacific standard simon:

Always a pleasure to tune in live. Sometimes life interferes.
Avatar 4:22am CDToaster:

James Cotton came to my pizzeria ("Tony's New York Pizza") between sets at the nightclub he was performing at and signed my vinyl James Cotton album. It was pretty exciting. That was back in the late '80's at The Grandstand Play, Christiansted, St. Croix. Great days to remember and cherish, forever. Thanks for bringing it all back home, markr.
  4:28am markr:

It's nice to hear he was a cool guy, CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am pacific standard simon:

I spent a couple of hours with my mother-in-law today. 94 and still ticking.
  4:40am markr:

My wife's side of the family lives into their 90s like that, too. Mine, not so much.

Good morning, Mark, Circle timers, strangers in the night, ships passing, those wading knee-deep in the stream.
Avatar 4:58am Jay/London:

hey good morning markr
  4:59am markr:

Morning, Sem, Jay. A little jazz-rock fusion for ya!

yeah goes well with rain and wind here .. and of course coffee markr :)
  5:08am exile-on-hicks-street:

hey mark - it’s geoff c. finally able to listen (for an hour at least) in real time.
  5:09am markr:

Welcome Geoff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am pacific standard simon:

According to Wikipedia, Overend was his actual middle name, so no quote marks necessary.
  5:11am markr:

Get out! Well, I stand corrected. Interesting family.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13am pacific standard simon:

Well, we all know that Wikipedia is never ever wrong about anything. ;)
  5:14am markr:

Ha, right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14am pacific standard simon:

Hart sounds like he's auditioning for Flipper here.
  5:23am markr:

I knew the segue from Hüsker Dü to Steely Dan would either be terrible or inspired!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27am pacific standard simon:

I have never met a woman who liked Steely Dan. Have you? It's a part of my music collection I have to keep to myself.
  5:28am exile-on-hicks-street:

Duane Train did a great Walter Becker tribute show. Worth checking out in the archive.
  5:29am markr:

I got some serious shit from a listener the last time I played a Steely Dan track "unironically."
  5:31am exile-on-hicks-street:

@pacific standard I once knew an African-American girl who LOVED Steely Dan. She was super matter-of-fact about it. Check out the Duane Train tribute - he talks about the affinity between the black comm and Steely Dan. I need things explained to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36am pacific standard simon:

Thanks, exile, I'll do that.

Can't wait to hear the Michael Bruce interview.
  5:37am herb.nyc:

Did you say 7pm Techronic for its special guests? It's 6pm. ___ I missed Glen's town hall show, 3,4 yrs ago - niece wedding. Alas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am pacific standard simon:

Glen Campbell + Jimmy Webb = match made in heaven.
Avatar 5:40am CDToaster:

@exile: you're right, Duane did do a great Becker tribute show worth checking out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am pacific standard simon:

Shoulda played the Zappa version!
  5:45am markr:

The later Steely Dan albums were all session musicians, except for Becker and Fagen, and many of those musicians were black. There was a very funky feel to a lot of those records that you could see might appeal to the same audience that might dig, say, Funkadelic. The thing I loved about them (and I didn't get this until later), was they used their very slick production values to get airplay and slip all these VERY subversive lyrics past the censors and into our impressionable young minds. Why, every time a DJ said "Steely Dan" he was unwittingly talking about a dildo in a William Burroughs story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am pacific standard simon:

I know he didn't die LAST year, but lately I've been listening to an awful lot of Warren Zevon. There's so much stuff in there.
  5:48am markr:

A rich, deep treasure trove of irony, cynicism, romance and idealism. Plus a picture of a pistol in a bowl of bee stew.
  5:51am markr:

that's beef stew, not bee stew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51am pacific standard simon:

Oddly, the person caused me to dig past the hits in the Dan catalogue IS a woman -- Ruth Underwood, percussionist for the Zappa band, who was quite taken with the work of Victor Feldman on those early albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53am pacific standard simon:

Bee stew sounds interesting.
  5:54am markr:

I'm sure some hippies in Oregon are dining on it right now. You have to remove the goddamn stingers, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am pacific standard simon:

Nettles for garnish?
Avatar 5:54am Scraps:

I have to comment about women and Steely Dan. My late wife loved Steely Dan. Like another one in this thread, she was African-American. I don’t =think= that had anything to do with it....
  5:55am markr:

I love Ruth Underwood. I'd love to watch an hour-long interview with her. To be a woman in that environment must have been VERY interesting.
Avatar 5:55am Sem:

Memory whiplash from this playlist, and in a very good way. Courageous segues, Mark, and beautiful choices.

Saw an interview w/ Ms. Underwood a while back, her talking about the parts Zappa wrote for her. She picked up the mallets and played a few measures, and there mist have been a hundred notes in there, in, of course, more than several time signatures.
  5:56am alessandro from Italy:

.... john wetton d. 1/31/17 ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am pacific standard simon:

Damn, alessandro, you're right!
  5:58am markr:

I know Alessandro, I missed some good ones. "Courageous segues" is a kind way to put it, Sem, thank you.
  5:59am markr:

Tune in for more courageous segues next week, everyone. Thanks for tuning in, and American listeners, enjoy your day off, if you have one!
