Lifelong bird watcher here: I used to think that the lyrics said "there's a crane on the table, there's a hawk on the chair" ... especially with the preceding line about turning into a crow.
Commie Francis (host) 8:48:59 PM
hahah turns out it's much more messed up, the story of Brian Eno
richard lyons 8:51:11 PM

Anthony J. Giacoppo 9:39:23 PM
On your last show, 2 weeks ago, you mentioned a band, phonetically spelled raul, in the context of announcing what we'd just listened to and where the members had come from.For various reasons I hadn't been sure if the band even existed. How is the band's name spelled? Past searches for the spelling r a u l didn't bring up a band.
