I'd be happy to donate $500 per year to WNYC to keep these great songs on the air.

I'll donate $1000 if there was a host who wasn't so pompous

@Victor I think it was Joni Mitchell's "Court and Spark" sung by Tierney Sutton, a cut off her newish album, "After Blue." Jonathan's been playing a lot of music from it, and I've totally fallen for it, because I love both those artists...

"I had a rendezvous with somebody new?" "Your cousin?" Excuse me? Because all of the blase confessions, I love how the song swings non-chalantly. If you have bad news, best to pretend that it's no big deal. While Ella and Frank both recorded this song, check out Lucy Ann Polk's version.

'Binder' is the word you're shooting for. :) Great show today - one of those I wish could go on forever!

Binders of women.

Who did the version of the Joni Mitchell song before Jonathan played Joni singing, "Down To You"?

Liza does a great version of "Remind Me" on her recent album of intimate ballads. I have from time to time wondered, Jonathan, why you totally overlooked that album. It may not be technically perfect, but it is so full of emotion, passion, and wit--I really wish you would play it on the show.

Now that you've played "Don'cha Go Away Mad" and irritated all your female listeners. Have a nice day.

"In 1944, when he was 16, Williams was hired by director Howard Hawks to sing vocals that were to be dubbed over the voice of the musically inexperienced 19 year old Lauren Bacall in To Have And Have Not."
