Bill jumped the gun with about 20 minutes of bonus coverage before officially signing on. Bob called in to remind folks that he was safe in the Mansion on the Hill in Clifton, but the studio rookie couldn’t mash the buttons properly to make a good connection. We’ll fix that glitch, so until then, enjoy the week’s Spotlight Artist, Joni Mitchell.

John Prine recorded his first album in 1971, which made it a herculean task to choose the songs for a two-hour program. Listen to see if your favorite tune made the cut.

Bill went all in with 20 songs, each of which began with the word “All,” an idea plucked from his latest obsession: Listening to the iPod alphabetically. Loyal listener Tom Borgman identified the gimmick first, and won a valuable prize.

Bill took every safety precaution – thanks to Lola, who keeps the studio clean and sanitary – to do a live show for fans who found themselves at home during the coronavirus crisis.

While Bill was feelin’ alright at the Dave Mason show, Bob paid musical tribute to California (his recent home away from home), wished happy birthday to the late greats Bobby Womack and Willie Johnson (Howlin’ Wolf’s first guitar player, BEFORE Hubert Sumlin), and recounted John Lennon’s “The Beatles are more popular than Jesus Christ.” Between recent cuts from Allison Moorer and Eilen Jewell and a literal out-of-this-world classic from Lightnin Hopkins, friends and guests of the show Farmer and Adele got their shout out for winning this year’s Ameripolitan award for Best Western Swing Band. Congratulations Keenan and Grace!

Ghosts attacked the machine at the beginning of the show, but Bill remained calm and bounced back to play good music on the first episode of Year 7.  Unfortunately, none of Bill’s words were picked up by the microphone, so this show is all music.   “Thank You” from Sly & the Family Stone was scheduled to open the night as a gift for everybody who has supported BS&B for six years, but that was lost to the glitch. However, the evening closed with the haunting “Family Affair,” another reminder that we’re all in this together.

Is it possible to pack too much awsomeness into a single radio broadcast? Radio theorists have argued about this since the time of Marconi. But Bob and Bill are doers, not talkers.  OK, they are talkers, but last night they were also doers. They have done proved that you can have unlimited awsomeness in a single radio show.  To wit, last night the guys celebrated the show’s sixth anniversary AND Bill’s birthday. They did this while hosting a studio chock full of guests and playing a heap of great music and juggling a sometimes fickle audio board. Who says men can’t multitask? The real question is, “How much awsomeness can you handle?”
