A typically wacky mix, with a surprising jazz twist in the middle – I might have to pull out the Dave Brubeck tonight. Only the Contrast Podcast would bring together music from The Jungle Book and Green Day. Well done!

i suffered terribly not picking dusty or john coltrane so thanks for making sure they’re here people.
my favourite of these for awhile. top class

I feel like I’ve died and gone to advert heaven. But in a good way.

where to start? “somebody to love” is one of my personal favorites–great pick, ross!

does anyone else agree that janis may have stolen a few of her vocal stylings from irma when she recorded her version of this song? i’d never heard that one before–loved it.

we listened to the podcast as a family (which we almost never do) and my son was sitting directly at the computer when the bong water bubbled through . . . i hope he didn’t know what it was meant to be! 😉

andy–i see great minds think alike when it comes to certain things! loved your pick and also the way it followed the stooges.

kristi–how cool to hear you! hope you enjoyed it. : )

sas–when incense and peppermints came on, my husband said, oh yeah, i really like that one!

and at long last we have been blessed by the toad–welcome! : )

I really enjoyed this one. “I wanna be like you” is such a great song and Crash really made me think about the Jungle Book and how great the songs are. How many other Disney movies have a scat session with a bear and an orangutan?

Marcy- I had the same idea as you at first, but the only song I had with the title 23 was over 8 minutes long.

Also loved the Jefferson Airplane. Overall, a very good podcast.


Actually, isn’t it 7:25?

PS, I hope we’re talking about JEW or else I’m going to feel like a loser
PPS, I realize that 7:25 is close enough to eight minutes to exclude it. I just wanted to show off.

Alex, all those people you named are 10 years younger than me! hahaha.

LOVED the jazz in the middle of the show. Simply astounding, the music of Brubeck and Coltrane.

Never trust a hippie, FiL? Hey, they have the best drugs!! (especially now..viagra…lipitor…cialis..)

Tim, I’ve enjoyed listening to these for quite a while. They make a great alternative to radio on the highway.

I’ve been cleaning up my iTunes library — making sure the tags are correct, finding artwork, and so on, and it occurred to me that I wanted to be able to include the song titles for these, so I’ve been copying and pasting the playlists into the lyrics field for each file. But with 60+, it’s tedious.

I was wondering if there’s enough interest to get you to do that extra 30 seconds work on your end for subsequent ‘casts…

Just a feeler, really.
