I hope somebody is listening....

1:40 PM, September 13th, 2023
I'm listening ... for a change on time and on Wednesday!

1:41 PM, September 13th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Thanks Nancy.

1:44 PM, September 13th, 2023
listening... The marine harmonica is better in blues than the kazoo -- most of the time.

Thanks for tuning in Benoît.

1:48 PM, September 13th, 2023
I don't miss the show when I can avoid it. On-demand is fine, but live uses my sound system speakers.

One day I should venture up and out of the bunker and listen to it through the radio for a change.

2:00 PM, September 13th, 2023
CKCU makes radio pretty sweet. Nuthin' else like it on the dial.

2:09 PM, September 13th, 2023
Who is this... Bob Dylan?... He'll never make anything of himself singing hillbilly songs like that! /s

2:11 PM, September 13th, 2023
Renny G (host)
That was the first Dylan song I ever heard.

2:23 PM, September 13th, 2023
It was part of the first Dylan 33 rpm I heard. Semi-contemporaneously. It may also be the first version of that song I heard. It got to be popular in coffee houses -- with those singers who could handle its range!

2:27 PM, September 13th, 2023
Listening... Pleasurably random and riotous as always "WHAT THE *&%@ was THAT" ... My favorite genre ;^) Unfortunately out doing errands most of the shoooow until just now. Hard to fully listen up. I'll have to look up that Bob Dylan fella -- is he famous? -- Thank you OnDement.

Renny G (host)
Thank you, Peter B.

2:53 PM, September 13th, 2023
Very fine show today, thanks. Where the f' ' was ' billy?

3:21 PM, September 13th, 2023
Great show, Renny. A feast for the ears!

3:23 PM, September 13th, 2023
Frankie: yeah, especially since I used his handle, up there! Usually, speak of the devil and...

Renny G (host)
Hey Frankie. Thanks for listening everybody.
