  1. Great show. I need to listen again to better sort out the known from unknown songs. I always love “Panic in Detroit.” When I was a kid I always wished Philly radio would play it as often as other Bowie hits.

    Great show, even for a machine. I have to listen a 2nd time to make more specific comments.

    I’ve now heard so many version of Lost Highway that I forget who did the original.
    Always good to hear September Goourls and David Booey.

    We played it again tonight, and let’s say it’s further evidence that RTH is not on the “meh” list!

    I was pleasantly surprised to actually know that Sunny and the Sunsets tune – I often don’t know much of the music on folks’ SNSI, but I dig that song.

    I was surprised by the John Doe and Kristin Hersh tune: I’m pretty up on most things Hersh (a one degree of separation band for me although never met her personally) but didn’t know that track or that collaboration. I would like to know more about it, as my preliminary google search didn’t really offer up much info. Deets? We saw John Doe perform last year and he’s still trucking’. An interesting pairing.

    But dear Robo Rock, why no 80’s tunes? You came into being in the latter part of the decade, and despite what Mod will tell you, there were some good tunes then.

  5. On second listen this evening, I dig Robo Rock 2000’s insights into the RTH psyche! Funny stuff.

    Is that an alternate version of “September Gurls,” or is hearing it in this context after so many listens over the years, one of those weird instances of hearing new details for the first time? Have you ever had that sensation, where a familiar song suddenly sounds new or different in a certain section? Maybe you hear an overdub you’d never heard before. I love those moments.

    Sorry it’s taken so long to respond to you folks. I have to ask Robo Rock 2000 questions on punch cards, so it can be time consuming. I love Sonny and the Sunsets. I think I like Antenna to the Afterworld as much as I like anything I’ve heard this year, but Hit After Hit was my gateway into them. Let me ask RR2K your questions.

    The John Doe track is from Forever Hasn’t Happened Yet, which is John collaborating on most tracks with his friends. Cindy Lee Berryhill is on two songs, Neko Case on one, and Dave Alvin is all over the album. It’s a very consistent and enjoyable album.

    There were no 80’s songs because 2000 Man doesn’t understand how to program me, or he just stopped running the program before I could get to them. There are also no songs from vinyl records, so my ability to bring you the Rock you deserve is hampered.

    September Gurls was from the Recent Nothing Can Hurt Me release, so yes it is an alternate mix, from 2012.

    We look forward to your next appearance, RR2000.
