Good show today.

Just checked Jerry Stahls Twitter, he’s up to 6,200+ now… so that’s a little WTF bump right there, maybe? smile

I love you too Marc.

Just finished listening to your Booker T. interview
It inspired me to listen to his stuff. Now, I must go
listen to his stuff.

Stay strong my friend. And stay single.  This coming
from a married man. Also just found out we share the
same birthday. I’m one year younger than you.

Incredible fucking show! The MGs are my favorite band; this interview could’ve been 3 hours long & I’d still want more… would’ve liked to hear more about Duck Dunn (in light of his somewhat recent passing), but so it goes.  Maybe Cropper would agree to be on a future show?

MARC: if you haven’t done so already, check out Booker’s latest, “Road to Memphis.”  It’s brilliant front to back, and closes with a track featuring Lou Reed.
Also, everyone, see Booker and/or Steve Cropper LIVE if you ever get the chance… I’ve been lucky enough to see the MGs three times & Booker solo once; amazing musicians. You have no fucking idea.

Thanks so much for this show, Marc… love ya, man!

When you and Booker T were discussing the writing of born under a bad sign, I got shivers up my spine. Actual shivers. Now that’s some good podcasting.

The Sally Kellerman interview was also good, and I will go on record as saying the film Mash is the greatest comedy, ever.

The blues brothers said that Green Onions is the greatest American song.

I say that the film Mash is the best comedy ever.

I hope this is what you intended in your invitation to improve the bulletin board discussion level above that of background noise.

Good interview! I really like the interviews you do with musicians, this one, Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, etc. You should get Jonathan Richman in one day! Greetings from Iceland!

Booker T. Jones has such a rich voice.  He should consider narrating audiobooks and doing voiceovers.  Seriously!

LOVED this podcast.  Went to the Stax Museum while in Memphis a few years ago.  I’m leaving this comment because you wanted us to spread some love!

Just got around to this-  having visited the Stax museum just last year, this was an incredibly rich interview. Great interview, great history- great cat.
