Nice, Muffy! I love Supertramp! Several years ago, I saw them at an outdoor show back in PA. I brought mom with and a few songs in, the air got strangely "bluer." Mom look around, sniffed the air, and exclaimed,"Oh my! I think someone is smoking marijuana!!!" I thought, 'Duh...'
Okay - that got a laugh...
That's funny, CD. I can see that Smile
Well here is something different that I have been “Listening to...” lately, the thread title doesn’t necessarily need to be just about music, right?

When I was a kid I used to listen to a radio program called CBS Radio Mystery Theater. There are lots of old radio programs around, but these were actually produced in the 1970’s and early 80’s. I have fond memories staying up to listen in the dark, and trying to stay awake until the end of the story. When friends would come over for a sleepover a highlight was always looking forward to Mystery Theater and enjoying a good spooky story.

I came across a website that has archived all of the old Mystery Theaters, and you can download them as MP3’s. Now I can listen to them again. So I connected an MP3 player to an old amplified computer speaker on my nightstand. It’s easy to download an episode to the player, bring it over to the speaker, plug it in and listen.

I started going through the episodes from the beginning, and I’m currently listening to ones from January 1974. I like that some of the recordings also include the original commercials and even some news broadcasts. I can’t help but think of a certain band that was struggling to release their first album at the time in 1974...

I have gotten Mrs Rey to listen too, and now she is hooked, and we like to listen together. Just like when I was little, I sometimes find myself drifting off to sleep during the final act of the story, and can be interesting to listen when you are on the edge of sleep, in a dreamlike state.

If anyone wants to try one out and give it a listen, here is a link to the episode I listened to last night, it was a pretty good one:


Here is a link to all the episodes:


So grab that spouse, snuggle up nice and cozy, be sure to turn out the lights, and enjoy.

Cool beans, Rey!

One of my absolute favorite non-CPT songs. Ever... LOVE Gilmour's voice in this.
This is probably one of my deepest loved PF tracks. Never can get enough of every note.

I've always believed that Gilmour and Bubba are two peas from the same pod. Just my opinion though.
This afternoon on AXS channel, they showed a program with Jon Anderson of "Yes". He played all his great songs and was backed by the Cleveland Youth Orchestra and Chorus. My experience with youth orchestras (I played in one when I was, well, a youth!) is that the ages of the musicians are from 12 to 17 years old. The whole show was fantastic! Everyone looked like they were having the best of times. And the music and orchestral arrangements were quite good. If you see this is going to be on TV, check it out!
Ive seen that show before. Probably one of the more excellent uses of PUBLIC TV around these parts, but darn fine show. As I recall Styx did a similar show with the same conductor. At least if memory serves me correctly (which lately has been like farts in the wind!).
