Hey N & DL! Happy sunshine day to you, too!

Ah yes, wildman English drummer of legend. His nickname is actually spelled 'Cozy'. That riff certainly sounded like Hendrix"s 'Third stone from the Sun". Oh jeez, great Pag cover.

Hi Frankie! I fixed Mr. Powell's name, I must have been thinking of my favourite sweater!

1:56 PM, May 29th, 2024
Love this Pygmies track! Thanks for playing it!

Thanks, Duck. Good to see you "on brand".

Ian Jeans (host)
Hi Bobby! Did you spot a French seal?

2:16 PM, May 29th, 2024
No, it's my CRTC friendly reaction to a great show. You know: duck, phoque...;)

2:17 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Thanks for keeping it radio-friendly, BC!

2:19 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Plant not even trying to say words on Something Else. I love it.

2:20 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ha yes, I had to look up 'Le Phoque", good one.

2:21 PM, May 29th, 2024
Bobby Calzone
You know, this phoque "in" show has really got me playin air Les Pauls and Telecasters as if I was still playin in a band (40 years ago;)!). Don't tell Candace!

2:37 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
I"m glad it's got your "phoque" of approval, BC. (Yeah, I know it doesn't translate that way, but I'm gonna use it from now on).

2:39 PM, May 29th, 2024
I'm just an old fat "phoque" now. And pas mal fucké to boot:):)

2:39 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian, love the (sic) for 'Strudle.''

2:49 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Thanks, Frankie. That one was on the band! Also, this video got good rotation on early MuchMusic.

Ian Jeans (host)
Hi JL! That song is all sorts of nuttiness.

2:56 PM, May 29th, 2024
Johnny Loan
Totally just found it on Spoitify and added to my playlist

2:57 PM, May 29th, 2024
Thought you were ending the .show on a high note, with Oral Prophet eating the Snow Bird... but there's still half an hour to go! Wheeeeeee!

2:58 PM, May 29th, 2024
Orval was quite the star in his heyday, nice one Ian!

3:00 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Ha! That's a mental picture, BC!

3:01 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Yes, Frankie, I wasn't overly familiar with his career, but seems to be very important for country music in Canada. I'm from the Ronnie Prophet era!

3:06 PM, May 29th, 2024
Yes, I believe Orval and Ronnie were cousins. I remember the Ronnie Prophet show on CBC, for a brief time in the mid seventies. (one season?)

3:13 PM, May 29th, 2024
Great Riot today Ian. All targets realized and bases touched. Joe Carter would be proud.

3:24 PM, May 29th, 2024
Well, this was sure an eclectic show: all over the place! Like my brain... Ska.. ça ça catered. But everything well timed and proportioned! Bravo! Cheers!

3:27 PM, May 29th, 2024
Ian Jeans (host)
Thanks for listening! And thanks for all the great comments. Have a great sunny day!

3:27 PM, May 29th, 2024
cool playlist...I don't think bandcamp is a record label though. Mad Ones are on Fortune Stellar Records, the bands label. New Motorists is great. Thanks!
