Hey Ira !!!

and everyone else.
Avatar 9:23pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I'm sorry Evan is so disconsolate over the Mookie Betts trade that he took the night off but this show is a home run so far. The kind Betts will be hitting for The Dodgers this season.
Avatar 9:23pm RobinSays:

Hi Ira, was Glen Matlock singing lead on that Sex Pistols track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Aitch:

Nice version of Kingdom Come. Enjoying the show Ira.

I'm being forced to watch wrestling with the sound off.

Hi Ira, enjoying the show.
  9:35pm MuddyT:

Andy Gill! What a powerful guitar player. I've never heard anyone else like him.

@RobinSays: No, it's Paul Cook.

Whoa, Ira The K!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Irwin:

Is "Two By Two" a Michael Brown song?
Avatar 9:47pm RobinSays:

Ok Ira,thanx for clearing that up. Good song. I'm enjoying your show tonight.
  9:48pm Ira:

@Irwin: It is. Howard Kaylan does both "Two by Two" and "Love Songs in the Night" on his Dust Bunnies record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm neilwarren:

I don’t think I’ve ever heard this version but love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Irwin:

Looks like Steve Martin (Left Banke lead vocalist) recorded the original "Two by Two."
Avatar 9:52pm John from NP:

RIP Nice Guy
  9:54pm Ike:

For a sec there, I thought you meant that *the* Steve Martin had died. Y’know, the bluegrass musician.
Avatar 9:54pm John from NP:

That's such a great story

Hey Ira...when The Shoes played Maxwell's their road manager drew a sign with an arrow he put at the bottom of the steps pointing letting them know they would have to leave the basement and go up said steps to get to the stage.

Tuning in from the Upper Midwest. We love you, Ira. You and your tunes!

As always, a great selection. Glad I don't have to hear any gems from that band called The Kinks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Jeezy:

I still have the Christmas LP on vinyl! Not a duff track on there...
Avatar 10:29pm Marshall Stacks:

It's uncanny, I was just thinking about this band and this song, even before you mentioned James McNew.
  10:29pm Ira:

@johnzo: In my mind, I'm doing Joe Pesci's scene from Goodfellas
