I actually slept in this morning, and woke up at 8:15 to a text from my boss asking if I could come in at 9 instead of 10.

  Swag For Life Member 11:45am Ira:

Todd didn't actually produce this one, but it's the Grand Funk song I wanted to hear.
  11:47am pp:

following shaun on twitter, he's a very positive and upbeat dude

Mrs McGroovey: "Oh, we already have this Jonathan Richman record. :-( I thought he meant there's a NEW NEW one :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Matt Fiveash:

I don't run around with no mob, but in this case I will make an exception and join the mob of commenters here. Somehow missed that you were filling in today, itsa nice surprise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Gaylord Fields:

Whenever I see the "5" Royales' name, I think of those signs in shops that say "Fresh" Fish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Hughie Considine:

If there is an underrated Beatles LP, it would have to be "VI" (which we pronounced 'vee eye' as kids).
Avatar 12:26pm Roberto:

I keep thinking the next line is going to be "have you seen my wife, Mister Jones?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Goyim in the AM:

@Roberto: you are not alone in that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Hughie Considine:

Even Mrs. Gibb found Robin Gibb's voice unsettling.
  12:28pm pp:

are the odds that "5" is actually 4 or 6?
Avatar 12:31pm Roberto:

It sounded like the BeatGees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm McGroovey:

@pp 100%
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm McGroovey:

OK, 100% isn't odds, per se, but you understand
  12:35pm Queens L. Bow:

Yeah, that Grand Funk song was several albums after Todd produced them. Still a good song, & written for Farner's girlfriend at the time, Sally Kellerman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Handy Haversack:

Next set: "Many"!
  Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Ira:

@Queens L. Bow: Really? I always assumed it was about Sally Rogers from the Dick Van Dyke Show!
  12:38pm Pedro in Arlington:

Who replaces Wheeler in the rotation?
  12:39pm JSG:

Such monkey business!
  12:42pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Hiya ITK! Fab show!
Avatar 12:43pm Hoboken Jack:

Was very pleased to buy the Glands reissues at Wuxtry Records in Athens (during a rare trip out of Hoboken).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Hughie Considine:

Indeed. What a truly fantastic band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Handy Haversack:

Wuxtry! Nice, Hoboken Jack.
  12:48pm taryninstereo:

Hey Taryn!
  Swag For Life Member 12:53pm norske jersey boy:

Fantastic show Ira ! love from Norway to NJ !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Corey:

Dig this Freedom for the Stallion! Thanks for the great show Ira. Until next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Hughie Considine:

When I first heard Lee Dorsey's "Freedom for the Stallion" I swore he sang, "They've made manigot -- it's a doggone sin!"
  12:55pm Queens L. Bow:

IRA: Not sure about that, but I think "I Come Tumblin'" was inspired by Dick & that Ottoman.
  12:57pm Queens L. Bow:

Wow, I actually thought that was Allen Toussaint's version...Orlando has good taste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Ira!
