In these confused times isn't it nice to find some relief? Every week, James will try to bring some sense into this crazy world via the radio waves. Look back. Look forward. Seek the truth. Never dull. Always irreverent. Fight the good fight by just sitting back and listening.

Sometimes less antenna is better for reception
DJ Simon 9:02:54 AM
I find a tin foil hat helps with the reception.
PiGuy 9:03:42 AM
What's the frequency, Kenneth?
PiGuy 9:06:00 AM
Not a request, certainly, just asking about reception. When I was in the car it was fine in back bay. Streaming at work,lousy reception here.

PiGuy 9:13:26 AM
Saw Burma at the Underground in '81 but couldn't grasp their brilliance right away. Much more appreciative years later.
James (host) 9:13:41 AM
I'm not judging you...
PiGuy 9:15:34 AM
Many times I wish could tell my younger self to appreciate bands that I saw but couldn't appreciate at the time. SAD.
Bradgic 9:15:43 AM
oh wow, good choice, if not obvious. Funny the hoods didn't come to my mind considering my band opened for them when they came down to Pennsylvania waaaay back in the day.
Todd Relaford 9:15:58 AM
i'm judging me. it's all about me.
Heather Grunwald 9:16:07 AM
I love this late 70s early 80s Boston sound - Heartbreak records sounds
Heather Grunwald 9:16:44 AM
meant Ace of Hearts
James (host) 9:18:12 AM
I have held the Prettiest Girl master tape in my hand at Rick Harte's house....Thrill of life time
Bradgic 9:18:17 AM
I knew what you meant Heather, and I agree!
PiGuy 9:18:25 AM
James, was 'COZ still an entity that you experienced? They played a lot of the local bands as well as the very commercial stuff.
-bot 9:18:28 AM
how can I get any work done with this great music playing?
Bradgic 9:20:02 AM
Right?
James (host) 9:21:15 AM
This one is good to download for posterity
PiGuy 9:21:51 AM
Amen to that!

Is Kraftwerk in the mix? No LCD Soundsystem without them.

Rav played that ID Sunday night
James (host) 9:50:13 AM
OK
j. johnson 9:50:15 AM
I read that the ME wants to sell the parcel to someone then lease it back from them. That doesn't make any kind of sense to me.
Pat Irwin 9:52:20 AM
James - did you put it together?
James (host) 9:53:00 AM
It's Together
Pat Irwin 10:01:44 AM
Anybody know how Peter Choyce is doing?
James (host) 10:02:20 AM
Due to a listener who wrote in...I am no longer to speak of peter and his life.
DJ Simon 10:08:13 AM
OMG V66 - Hadn't thought of that in years.

Pat Irwin: I just talked to Peter on Wed. for the first time in a few months. He's doing well in Knoxville. If I do my spring trip of "The Villes", I'll see him.
James (host) 10:21:42 AM
Joanie. Hear your brother there?
Joanie Lindstrom 10:22:52 AM

James (host) 10:23:15 AM
It's the songs we love valentines day show
Joanie Lindstrom 10:23:38 AM
Ah, Valentine themes. Something I avoid haha.

Songs we love never let us down
Barry Hart 10:25:30 AM
Hello,James,just wanted to thank you for the outstanding music from the Neighborhoods,the Cars,Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers & Human Sexual Response-great,uplifting rock songs. I’m glad to hear that things are looking up for the Hip Priest.With gratitude,Barry.
Moles Knows 10:26:03 AM
Hi James, please check the door. Thanks.
PiGuy 10:26:17 AM
FWIW, James, I know we discussed X last week, but Jon B played True Love and True Love Part II this morning on 'MBR. So, I got an unexpected X fix this am.
James (host) 10:28:05 AM

Will Wire do their back catalog at the Sinclair?
James (host) 10:34:54 AM
Slowly
-bot 10:37:43 AM
this brings me back to my college days at UMASS
PiGuy 10:39:01 AM
Didn't see Wire last time but their back catalog is so huge that whenever I see them they do older songs but it varies wildly. They usually do about half of the latest release and then a mix. Some shows are better than others.
-bot 10:40:01 AM
@piGuy, I have some large gaps in my Wire knowledge, so I'll be happy to see them put on a good show.
PiGuy 10:41:18 AM
Well the energy will certainly be there.
Joanie Lindstrom 10:41:25 AM
Ultravox - one of the most overlooked bands ever. First 3 albums of course
