Thread Name: Help: Urge for Going (recorded by Joni Mitchell?)
Subject: RE: Help: Joni Mitchell's Urge for Going
I'm not sure why this thread was refreshed, but as long as it's here...

For anyone who has been reading and enjoying this conversation, as I have been, I want to update the information about Gene Shay's radio show in Philadelphia.   Currently, his show appears on WXPN-FM (88.5 FM in Philly), the member-supported station at the University of Pennsylvania, on Sundays from 4pm to 8pm Eastern Time. Here's a link to more about the program: http://xpn.org/xpnv7/index.php?parent_id=56&end_node=0

I, too, remember hearing the Joni Mitchell recording of "Urge for Going" on Philadelphia radio. As I remember, it was recorded live, but I don't remember ever hearing where she had been singing when the recording was made. I do remember hearing background noise and conversation, though, and I think there was a spoken introduction to the song on the recording as well. Am I remembering this correctly? (...Perhaps I'm remembering a different Joni recording than others on this thread are talking about!)
