Ahh, there goes the Sat. Question about lead pencils and tin cans. I KNOW THIS. I listen to Thur. Show so here it is Sat. And I have the answer. Really proud of my self to be so up on trivia. Of course you can only ask me on Sat. questions I heard on Thur.

If you've ever paid taxes, catch the 3-minute segment on the April 17, 2014 Live Tracks show. It begins about 22:45 in from the start of the show.

Jim, I missed Richie and the Yolos but the recording of Kurt and friend sounds exquisite. They were amazing. I'll check out the archieves for us. Thanks so much for calling tonight.

As I suspected, long time listeners of Live Tracks are tough, seasoned musicologists, not intimidated even by Capt. and Tennille. Listen up this Thursday while I raise the musical bar for fundraising...Thanks for listening! Jim

Just wanted to thank "Butane" James for the excellent broadcast from 1/28 on Live Tracks. Radio simply does not get any better than that!

For those of you who had the pleasure to listen to Live Tracks from 2/5/09...Jim's Beatles show, had the opportunity to hear radio at it's best.

No matter if you were sending out a signal from New York, Chicago or San Francisco, nothing could have been any better than this edition of Live Tracks.

Anyone who knows anybody that believes they know and enjoy the sound of early Beatles should give a listen.  Magnificent!
