Dear Mr Garland, I usually find you show so interesting but I just tuned in to hear to R. Stevie Moore and cannot believe I have left the radio on. Perhaps I was just stunned to think you would have given airtime to "work" that is so stunningly bad.
Go back to your bedroom, Stevie, and please be quiet.

Mr. Garland and Mr. Moore. What a great way to expose New Yorkers to orignal indpendent music. Does Mr. Moore play live here in the city ever?

R.Stevie is a force of nature, but Mike Jodry is force from outer space. Oh, and I already spent the money I won at the horse race. Too bad, crippled dude.

R. Stevie is a Paul McCartney for the twenty-first century. Mike Jodry is Spike Milligan for the twenty-second. Rock me, boys!

Yes, Mayin Doll, Stevie has two performances coming up: Wednesday, July 23 at Bowery Ballroom, and then Thursday, July 24 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Thanks for asking; I meant to mention it on the air!

to Rita M May:
Honey, you're absolutely right-on. Frankly, he should've never gotten by even the early audition stage. Blame David, not R.
But the fact that you would suddenly post something vicious like this is not dissimilar to, say, brandishing a firearm. Art Attack?

Drat and double drat! I missed the Sun eve broadcast. How soon will this be archived/rebroadcast?

Thanks for your constructive criticism. It speaks to the power of Mr. Moore's talent which has pleased many and irritated some. He still has that indescribable way of balancing what some call "outsider" music with genius songwriting and accomplished musicianship. The man uses dissonance like a Lenny Tristano as well as the classic jazz chords of a Wes Montgomery and he throws in Zappa and Brian Wilson in for good measure.
I would venture that there might even be something in Stevie's 40-year career--now that's an oeuvre--that could tickle your fancy. Toodles.
