** You might notice that I was very congested on the day of this Transmission. I have had a real stubborn case of Sinusitis and just found out that I am soon surgery bound (I'm scared shitless). I'm probably more subconsciously aware of it than I should be, but I thought I would share it with you - the RFW Family.

"on the radio, you don't have to explain"


* I named the song performed by Bruce in the WBCN studio on January 10th, 1973 "Circus Song" because at the time it was unreleased and he neglected to mention the title (if he even had one yet)! It showed up 8 months later as "Wild Billy's Circus Story" on The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle.

"I'm on the stereo, stereo"


* In my dual-channel excitement, I neglected to back-announce the two live selections. The ever-astounding NRBQ boosted the bass and led the charge with a spirited rendition of "Me And The Boys" and the unjustly under-appreciated Crack The Sky stormed the air-waves with the great medley of "Hold On/Surf City" from the live on WBAB radio station promo disc circa 1976!

Transmission 3710

The RFW Mass

Growing up as a member of the Roman Catholic church, Mass was a very mysterious and serious ceremony with prayers in Latin and a tight script including many unbreakable rules and regulations. There was not much room for improvisation. It was much later that I came to understand that it can be whatever you want it to be - you can smile and sing and connect with your God in your own personal style. The RFW Mass (in Three Parts) is a musical interpretation of that realization with divine music from The Electric Prunes, The Exceptions, Caldera, Spooky Tooth with Pierre Henry, Gospel Storytellers, Humble Pie, Aretha Franklin, The O'Jays, Solomon Burke and Prince Far I. Amen!
