Mark 12:08:12 PM
Hi Jerry/ breaking format: no theme song play or did i miss it
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:10:00 PM
no, mark, my new policy of playing one or two tunes before I get to the theme, tracks I want to "isolate"
Brian D 12:10:06 PM
Sometimes the Cuckoo strikes at 5 to 10 mins after. I have a pre loaded text that just reads 'Cuckoo' to my wife each week to remind her to tune into Jerry.
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:10:09 PM
there you go
Brian D 12:10:23 PM
There she is
Christine Duffy 12:10:30 PM
There's that cuckoo!

I can't not whistle as loud as I can along! Howdy everyone
the_dude 12:12:00 PM

Christine Duffy 12:12:22 PM
Hi Jerry! Happy Friday, everybody ☀
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:12:31 PM
Hey Dude, how are you?

Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:13:56 PM

Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:14:19 PM
but this is the original and I love it
Christine Duffy 12:14:37 PM
A fine variety.
the_dude 12:15:26 PM
I'm doing pretty well thank you Jerry, how're you? - you know it was about this time a few years ago my girlfriend called in to ask you to wish me a happy birthday on air, made my day! So just want to thank you for that
Christine Duffy 12:15:49 PM
This is trés cool. I want a pet robot! 🤖
Mark 12:16:13 PM
So do i ! been conditioned to hear it on Friday for the longest time :)
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:16:19 PM
my second favorite by Jethro Tull heard in Jerry's Dorm. Tied with that is my friend Jane Bunnett's version
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:16:57 PM
Dude, thank you for telling me that. I'm glad to hear I did it!
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:19:00 PM
Are you still with that girlfriend?
Christine Duffy 12:19:44 PM
@the_dude, it sounds like your birthday has rolled around again. Happy Birthday! 🎉🎂
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:21:04 PM
Christine, yes, very robotic!
Christine Duffy 12:22:05 PM
Get your jabs! 💉
Brian D 12:26:22 PM
Pino has played bass w The Who since John Entwistle's passing . Also played w David Gilmour , Gary Numan, Jeff Beck many other acts artists
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:27:04 PM
Thanks, Brian. I had no idea
Brian D 12:28:14 PM
Yeah great bass player. Really accomplished. Great resume
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:28:53 PM
Great knowledge there
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:29:55 PM
This singer is so great. I guess people are buying his CD because Blue Note has put out plenty on him
Brian D 12:30:09 PM
Great name too. Born in Wales.
the_dude 12:30:49 PM
Sorry was delayed, but haha yes I am! Clearly she was a keeper! And thanks Christine! My turn for the quarantine birthday..also gonna check out that Tull version later..
Brian D 12:31:28 PM
Yeah that Jose James has been on my radar thanks for playing that
Brian D 12:31:49 PM
Really smooth
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:32:23 PM
he's great
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:33:24 PM
Dude, everyone my age heard Tull do it. Kid's in Dorm Rooms had no idea Tull was doing a Roland Kirk song!
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:35:14 PM
Glad you are with the same woman!
Brian D 12:38:48 PM
I had Bach's Bouree from the Lute Suite as a classical guitar lesson piece back when I was a teen. Then I heard Tull swing through it when someone in college turned me onto older Tull lps
the_dude 12:39:06 PM
Ha thank you, almost 10 years now so what is it common law at this point? And I did have the fortune to see Tull at mann in 2019, he killed it on flute still! Would have loved to have heard serenade
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:39:48 PM
Bouree, nothing prettier
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 12:51:10 PM
Anothernew re-visit to the language of bebop
Christine Duffy 12:55:05 PM
💜 Caravan
Brian D 1:01:50 PM
You could do a week long show on Caravan versions. I like The Ventures. That's a hoot. And my fave is on the L.P. Money Jungle. A power trio of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach. Real stripped down dark version
Christine Duffy 1:05:05 PM
@Brian D, that would make an interesting show.
Brian D 1:05:28 PM
Wes Montgomery did a great version too w a big horn section
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:06:53 PM
This is about a rebellion
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:07:56 PM
People leave their old lives behind to become street people
Christine Duffy 1:14:25 PM
Rest in peace, Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
kentman 1:14:54 PM
Ferlinghetti passed this month-101 years old
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:16:01 PM
That performance just knocks me out!
the_dude 1:16:12 PM
That was great to hear!
the_dude 1:20:27 PM
I could listen to a whole beat show
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:21:28 PM
Dude, you're a beatnik!
the_dude 1:25:40 PM
Ha! Why thank you! In a some ways for sure, but idk if I'm hip enough! One of my favorite pieces though is Allen Ginsberg s capitol air, the music is such a cool accompaniment on it
the_dude 1:26:50 PM
I think there's a few versions? But I always liked this one https://youtu.be/2dfhCFNfQ5Y
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:27:54 PM
Thank you, Dude, will check it out!
kentman 1:28:09 PM
if you want to bust out laughing read Gregory Corso's poem 'Marriage'
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:30:04 PM
I will, never read it. Maybe I should have read it before getting married the last time.
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:31:10 PM
Ikue Mori. Beyond a master
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:37:06 PM
From Hopewell, Tom Tallitsch
the_dude 1:51:56 PM
Of course! And saved that Gregory Corso poem too, and yeah gonna have to dig into Ferlinghetti more too
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 1:55:05 PM
Well since you are a beatnik, you should enjoy them immensley!
Brian D 2:10:04 PM
Huarache sandals too. For a fun version of Surfin USA check out the French Frith Kaiser Thompson LP
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:11:22 PM
Now that is obscure. I must!
Brian D 2:13:52 PM
What a Supergroup FFKT was . Still waiting on the reunion....
Brian D 2:15:58 PM
Maybe the only time you get to hear Richard Thompson sing in Okinawan
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:17:21 PM
whoa
Brian D 2:23:00 PM
Monkey Time. Covered by The Tubes in the 80s with Martha Davis of the Motels guesting
Brian D 2:24:29 PM
PABST BLUE RIBBON! Can't hear this without thinking of Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet film
Mark 2:26:33 PM
Heineken f* thT sh** / gonna have to rewatch tonite :)
Brian D 2:26:58 PM
Yeah!
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:27:09 PM
I went to the University of Wisconsin. There was ZERO Budweiser there. ONLY Pabst. Made next door in Milwaukee at the time. Everyone drank Pabst and smoked Old Golds.
Brian D 2:27:36 PM
Loyal to the town brew
Brian D 2:29:30 PM

That was 4 Philly groups in a row. Brian, you are funny! The lead singer of the Dovells was Leonard Borisoff.
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:38:58 PM
From Overbrook, but he changed his name to Len Barry
Brian D 2:41:10 PM
Classic
Christine Duffy 2:41:34 PM
Sounds of Philadelphia
Brian D 2:44:03 PM
Benjamin Krass in his blue poly Krass Brothers suit. And "Where'd everybody go? They went to Betsons!" Other great Philly ads
Christine Duffy 2:45:30 PM
Now let's all sing the Ideal song: "If you've got a passion for fashion, if you've got a craving for savings..." 🎶

It's good to shop on friendly Mill Street in Bristol Pa (bah dah dah)
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:51:23 PM
Dave the Obscure, your last show was insanely good
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 2:52:06 PM
Thanks. I'm honored that you woke up so early.
Serenade to a Cuckoo w/Jerry Gordon (host) 2:54:33 PM
You are really prepared, or really know your stuff, or both!
Christine Duffy 2:55:37 PM
I always try to wake up earlier on Friday to catch your whole show, DJ DTO. Do you achieve them?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 2:55:38 PM
I know some stuff. But I probably over prepare a bit, too.
