Great friend of the show Jack Greiner dropped in to advocate for the induction of Loggins and Messina into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Bob mocked the notion. John Densmore’s birthday also  was observed, and recently passed Dave Frishberg was honored. Sadly, our intrepid heroes had to play an unscheduled round of studio roulette because of a special board meeting, so the second half of the show was lost to the ether for all but devoted bootleggers out there. And Bob’s incisive explication of the lyrics to “Box of Rain” is available only in his notes. Nevertheless, about one hour of truly erudite persuasion was captured on the website for all time — or for however long the internet lasts, whichever is longer.

Bob braved a ghost in the machine which apparently choked on all of the love, gratitude and great music that poured forth. Before he noticed the Overflow Error, some tracks and Bob’s insightful commentary were lost to the ether — what radio was meant to be.

Bob paid tribute to the late Commander Cody (George Frayne) and previewed both the Parker Millsap show at Memorial Hall and Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real at the Madison. Musicologist and friend of the show, Bridgetown Ray, was the winner of our first-ever ticket giveaway (to Parker Millsap) because he knew that the Commander was born in Boise, Idaho. Congrats, Ray!!! If that weren’t enough, Bob also played sets to wish Happy 86th to the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis, and a belated Happy 63d to Joan Jett.
