The Show Dressed in Black?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am Blacktooth:

Most slamming version of "Midnight Hour" I've heard this week.
Avatar 12:03am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

It's the guy who played piano on The Flamin' Groovies "Flamingo" album!
  Swag For Life Member 12:03am Ira:

If you’re like me, you spent the entire week mulling over my comment from last week:
I'm sure they're out there, but what musical family is as wide-ranging as the Escovedos?

So I hope you too finally came up with Ravi Shankar and Norah Jones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04am mariano:

Hey Ira, crew, Irites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05am ultradamno:

Johnny Burnette and his sons Rocky and Billy.

  12:05am matt:

oh sick I just listened to this hypnolovewheel song about an hour ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05am ParUbi:

Hey everyone, hi Ira
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am mariano:

If we're allowing multiple generations, there's the Williams family, ie the 3 Hanks.
Avatar 12:06am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Probably not Rusty and Doug Kershaw.
  Swag For Life Member 12:06am Ira:

@Matt: I hope you listened to the whole album. One of my favorites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am ultradamno:

Or we could narrow it down to twin acts like Ghost Bees and Watson Twins
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am Chop Scott:

Ira! I have adjusted my non-schedule--it's now happy hour. Cheers!
  12:07am Ignore Function:

Don, Neneh and Eagle-Eye Cherry?
  12:07am Suzie:

Cuddy! Ramirez! Hunking! Walsh!
  Swag For Life Member 12:08am Ira:

@Ignore Function: YES!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am ultradamno:

Very Saints...specifically International Robots, I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am Blacktooth:

I thought every member of the Eagles was related
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10am ultradamno:

No, Private Affair, that's it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am Mr. Pumpy:

Boot 'm up, Ira! Hello all!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am mariano:

The Ramone brothers were disallowed last week. Rather unfairly I might add. Ok, shutting up now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am Chop Scott:

Charlie and the Haden sisters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am Scott Williams:

Chop Scott! Ya beat me to the punch with the Hadens
  12:12am CC:

I always like my my my my my my better than baba baba baba!!!
Avatar 12:12am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Mike and Stan Love?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am mariano:

A very early song about personal computers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am ultradamno:

But The Walker Bros. count right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Mr. Pumpy:

Hey mariano. I have been of the mind that the good stuff skipped a generation with the Hanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am ultradamno:

Hank III fan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am ultradamno:

That Candidate For Suicide song is hilarious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am Mr. Pumpy:

Hank III fan, right here. Hanks I and III...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am mariano:

Yeah, not big on Jr either, Mr. P. But HWIII goes a long way to making up for him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Ken From Hyde Park:

The many and varied Sons of the Pioneers since 1933?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am Mr. Pumpy:

Hank Sr. is obviously the man...at least in my book. It's spooky how much H III looks like his grandad. Twins even...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am mariano:

Yeah when III sings Sr's songs it's kinda chilling. He does a great version of "Ramblin' Man".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Mr. Pumpy:

I jumped in a bit late. Are the parameters simply musical families ala Escovedo, or are their other criteria?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am ultradamno:

Bocephus is having a hard month though. Confederate flags at NASCAR are like...ALL of his promotional budget.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Scott Williams:

If we stretch the rules a little, we can extend to Hank IV
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am Mr. Pumpy:

Agreed, the times they are a changin' and have not boded well for Bo-seef. Sorry, dude...you fell victim to what I call the "Hard Liner's Bane"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am Mr. Pumpy:

Scott...what are the rules?
  12:19am CC:

I'm going to go eat something because the world could get hit by asteroid tonight???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am mariano:

Haha Scott!
  Swag For Life Member 12:20am Ira:

@Mr. Pumpy: although my question was vague, what I meant was what family covers as much musical ground as the Escovedos. The Hadens is a great example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am mariano:

CC: That's always been my motto.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Mr. Pumpy:

Ahhh! Got ya.
  12:21am Ignore Function:

Olu Dara and Nas?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am mariano:

The Marsalises? All jazz though, though they cover all sorts of ground within that. And Winton has made some classical albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am Mr. Pumpy:

Do spouses and significant others count? If so, John Lennon and family as well as John Coltrane and family.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am Mr. Pumpy:

Yeah man, Marsalises go deep. Hey, Ron Carter did it all without even having a family involved! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am Mr. Pumpy:

No joke, I just looked up this Shamek Farrah track because chances are it could have been Ron Carter on base. Alas, it is not. This track is sick, Ira!
  Swag For Life Member 12:25am drew:

Branford didn't just do jazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27am mariano:

Yep you're right drew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am Mr. Pumpy:

Sting's touring band for Bring on the Night featured Branford Marsalis. I remember loving the documentary about the tour. It's been 30 years, but I loved it back then, anyhow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31am Mr. Pumpy:

Patriarch, Ellis Marsalis Jr. had an impressive musical career in his own right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31am mariano:

Branford played on Sting's first solo album, I remember that. "Fortress 'Round Your Heart", etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am ultradamno:

  12:33am Slaboch:

What timing! We just finished watching The Band doc tonight via FMU's rental store. In case you were wondering there's 17 Executive Producers behind that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33am Mr. Pumpy:

ultra...yeah! and that led me to...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34am Mr. Pumpy:

The Carter Family...and family
Avatar 12:34am Michael Shelley:

Good evening all.
  12:34am BH:

Europe actually having national lockdowns where they smashed the curve into the ground, compared to the US not actually doing much of a lockdown... that sticks out a little too.
  12:34am sufferwords:

Masks, Warped Ones, TCM... Wrecking Crew... i’m rolling exactly on this trajectory
  12:35am Tom E:

"I just like having things stuck up my nose" haha
Avatar 12:36am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Slaboch: Are you sure you watched the original version of the Band doc? Wondering if it could have been a repro...
  12:39am Choggie:

Peeps all over the world are gonna be wearing masks like the Chinese for the next 100 years now! So much for their evil big brother facial recognition plans...MOO HA HA HA HA!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41am Ken From Hyde Park:

@Choggie - This guy's mask will throw the facial recognition off the trail for sure: www.wfmu.org...
  12:41am BH:

until they finally perfect that technology to see through masks, similar to the numerous X-Ray glasses magazine ads from the 70s
  Swag For Life Member 12:44am Ira:

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young on deck!
  12:44am Tim in NC:

I was just about to ask!!!!!
  Swag For Life Member 12:46am Ira:

Sorry . . . pinch-hitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48am mariano:

Saw something recently on Maitreya Kali/Craig Smith. What a sad story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am Mr. Pumpy:

I almost thought that was the VOIVOD Batman in the beginning. Crunchy.
  12:53am Tim in NC:

and what a pinch hitter it was! just read the brief Maitreya Kali bio on spotify and I'll have to check out that whole record in the morning

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Chop Scott:

I used to go to the Museum of Televison & Radio specifically to watch The Johnny Cash show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11am Ken From Hyde Park:

I recently stumbled upon a TV channel that airs reruns of Johnny's show on Saturday nights - www.get.tv...
Avatar 1:19am Mr & Mrs Bobby Microwave:

Curits Knight track is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am mariano:

So Dylan ripped this off from Lorne Greene. Who knew?
  1:20am BH:

wonder how the Lorne Greene version of "Masters of War" sounds
  1:22am Georgia:

I very much enjoyed Lorne Greene’s appearance on the JC show
  1:25am Dungaroos Kipawah:

Cash Show reruns are great, just wish that GetTV had more of them. It seems like it's the same 8-10 of them. Also wondering: was a lot of that show pre-filmed (not in front of the audience?). Seems really edited, but don't know enough about the show's production details, even tho they do cut aways to the crowd occupying the safe portions of, at the time, a crumbling Ryman
  1:30am BH:

on checking Wikipedia.. there is a Pernell Roberts folk album out there, if somebody was asking "did the other Bonanza cast members sing?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Chop Scott:

@Dungaroos Kipawah--Hazy kid memory of watching it on the air, and registering.
Avatar 1:36am Michael Shelley:

A writer told me a story about a chat he had with Johnny Cash about the TV show - Johnny told him he knew the show was going to be cancelled, because each week the show looked lighter and lighter, because less people were tuning in the signal...
  1:36am John L:

Pernell Roberts also sang on an episode of The Odd Couple.
  1:39am billthecat:

Ira! First time listening to your show! LOVED IT!
Cass and Gun...KILLER. I tuned in at Shamek Farrah.
Avatar 1:40am Hoboken Jack:

Hey everybody, sorry I'm late but thankfully I did see the Doc Severinsen Signal in the night sky.
  1:40am Dungaroos Kipawah:

@John L. My favorite Odd Couple: Felix Red River and His Saddlesores

Loving your show. I should turn in but I can't stop listening
  1:48am John L:

Dungaroos Kipawah:I think this song is about to end, because this old man needs oxygen!
  2:12am sufferwords:

Large Veiny Members... cool spose - inspired set tonight

@John L. Hahahaha! Yes!

Deep thanks for the program tonight Ira!
  2:17am Tim in NC:

one of my favorite Beatles tunes absolutely wrecked by the lyrics- even if it's a direct translation into the Indonesian I am none the wiser. love it

Welcome Yes and Hubig Pie. Let me fill you in on what you've missed: Nothing much. It's all about the last 25 minutes.
  2:37am BH:

My connection went down during part of the last half hour so I missed some of it. I used the time-tested method of "put the toothpick in that hole to reset it" to get the connection to come back up
  2:43am Ajay:

Hey Ira. Listening in here in Holland having breakfast. Thnx for playing a track from my BB album. Deeply appreciated
  Swag For Life Member 2:44am Ira:

Good morning, Ajay! Love the album.
  Swag For Life Member 2:45am Ira:

Or should I say: Good morning, Ajay. Love the album!
  2:46am Ajay:

Awhhh thnx man. So kind. I released a track on 5 June on bandcamp as a free release called “For Robbie Basho”. Help yourself to it
  Swag For Life Member 2:54am Ira:
