11:41pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

Dewey sings lead on most of their songs

11:40pm   Dave

Hooray for Trips Festival with Gamma Light!! A GREAT show!!!

11:40pm   Jeff

I guess Thursday is Bob Dylan's B'Day

11:39pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

Actually I mixed them up, Gerry's the blonde, HE sounded weird and Dewey sounded great

11:36pm   Brandon 78

Love the chords in Crystal Ship, wow a major 7th, stellar!!!

11:34pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Haha..oh no!

11:33pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

Dewey Bunnell, on the other hand, sounded like he had inhaled helium

11:30pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)


11:30pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

They probably still sound great Alexander??

11:30pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

Gerry Beckley's voice was amazing, hasn't aged at all

11:29pm   Dave

Could you bring Steve Miller Band's Children of the Future on Thursday to your Blues Revival show? I want to request something from it.

I saw America play a free show in DTLA a few years ago

11:16pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

10:43pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

I probably have some version of those Santana requests, thanks Jeff!

QMS - one of the top five San Francisco bands. (At least based on their first three LP's)

10:41pm   Jeff

Hey John, got much Santana with ya tonight? Like to hear In A Silent Way or Incident At Neshabur?

10:39pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

During the Flying Burrito Brothers set, as the camera pans from the stage to the front of the crowd, Blouie!

10:38pm   Blouie

Where can I see you in Gimme Shelter??

10:35pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Yeah, the harder stuff was great too, Alexander the pretty good!

10:34pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

I like Jeff Lynne best when he rocks out, as on Ma-Ma-Ma Belle and Do Ya. Not crazy about the Top 40 stuff, too slick

10:34pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Haha...that is true Armando!

10:34pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

You're very welcome Madeline!

10:33pm   Antsy Armando of the IE

And you, THE BOSS GUY, can be seen in the audience watching the FBB play at Altamont in the film "Gimme Shelter".

10:33pm   Madeline Maldonado

10:28pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Got that request too Blouie!

10:27pm   Antsy Armando of the IE

THE FLYING BURRITO BROS - One of the great forgotten bands of the late '60s / early '70s

10:27pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Up next Blouie! Thanks!

10:26pm   Blouie

And Mum wants to hear Crystal Ship from The Doors.

10:24pm   Blouie

Aw, man. Well, how about Wild Horses?

10:24pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Happy Sunday to you Brandon!

10:23pm   bailey

Alot of the nausea and complete lack of energey could because of some of the skin meds i have been getting though...

10:22pm   Brandon 78


10:22pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Sure can Madeline ! Thanks!

10:22pm   Antsy Armando of the IE

"On The Third Day" was OK. But it was the first ELO album with no ROY WOOD involvement. And that was not a good sign to me.

10:22pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Blouie! I don't!

10:21pm   Madeline Maldonado

Could you play The Flying Burrito Brothers song Wheels

10:20pm   Blouie

Hi, Boss Guy! Get well soon, Bailey! Hey BG, do you have any live Stones albums? Like Ladies & Gentlemen from 1972?

10:18pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Whoa! Some serious after effects from the stroke still! Sorry to hear that Bailey!

10:17pm   bailey

feeling so-so. VERY disoriented much of the time and very dizzy as well usually. Nausea also figures real prominently...

10:16pm   Dave

Hey Bailey! Feeling any better?

10:16pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Saw ELO on tour for "On the Third Day" record and thought they were amazing Armando! You should revisit that album!

10:14pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Bailey! How you feelin' tonight? I saw the opening show for Utopia tour on You Tube recently. Todd definitely sticking to Utopia material!

10:14pm   Antsy Armando of the IE

I think that I "phased out" on ELO around the time of the "On The Thrid Day" LP.

10:12pm   Dave

When Pet Sounds was first released, the British absolutely loved it, whereas over here, it was met with a lukewarm response. I guess Brian Wilson had the last laugh!

10:11pm   bailey

in for a bit. thought you might be interested to know that a utopia show i downloaded from a few days ago had them playing both 'the icon' and 'them from utopia'. looks like he's being pretty thorough this time around (have not listened to it yet)

10:09pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Yeah, I'm not surprised at all, Alexander the Pretty Good!

10:08pm   Alexander the Pretty Good

The Brits are absolutely bonkers for the Beach Boys

10:08pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

It sure as hell did, which is why I played it Dave!

10:07pm   Dave

That Roy Wood track sounded eerily like early '70s Beach Boys!

10:04pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Armando!

10:04pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Thanks Dave! It was tons of fun to do!

10:04pm   Antsy Armando of the IE

Evening Boss Guy. And to all of your devoted listeners.

10:03pm   Dave
