Finally got our copy of Super Hits of the 70's, and we love it
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:15am hamburger:

hheyyy guyys
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:20am Connie T. Empress:

Sounds like you were a member of The Explorer's Club the last 2 weeks: welcome back and Todd-O-Phonic was the #1 fill-in!!
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:26am Connie T. Empress:

AND a big chimp chuckle to Dave The Spazz who brought his own spin to the show last week: awesomeness abounds on FMU! And #1 hits keep on coming: thanks!
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:32am ken in denver:

Bright Lights Tonight is definitely a No. 1 Hit!
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:36am James:

Morning, folks!
  Sat. 8/25/12 11:57am DON JuanJ:

  Sat. 8/25/12 11:57am drr:

Blossom Dearie!
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:01pm Bob:

Almost the best Mats song ever.
Avatar Sat. 8/25/12 12:03pm Michael:

This is the best of his "not dumb" songs
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:18pm Connie T. Empress:

I never miss a #1 hits Show: even in the Archives: i listen and always catch something: like this Joe Pernice tune from the Super Hits of the 70's premium!! And thanks listener Don Juan J: you meet the nicest people at the #1 Hits Club!
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:22pm drr:

What was the Lovin' Spoonful song MS played so many versions of?
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:23pm drr:

it rhymed "toddled" and "dawdled"...
Avatar Sat. 8/25/12 12:23pm Michael:

Darlin' Be Home Soon
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:27pm drr:

thanks! good song. I discovered I like the Lovin' Spoonful more than I thought I would based on their radio hits.
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:29pm Robert:

I never listened carefully to the lyrics of "Gentle On My Mind" before this, thanks. Now I understand it...it's not about the 2nd person that it's about, it's really about the 1st person.
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:32pm Robert:

That is, "you" are gentle on my mind not primarily because of anything particularly about "you", but because of the way "I" treated "you".
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:35pm Connie T. Empress:

Ready set DIG: that Jackpot 1800 was a true #1 in that MS has the only copy stateside!
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:44pm Dano:

Love this show - every week. The playlist reminds me of every goofy great thing I heard on the radio as a kid.
  Sat. 8/25/12 12:49pm Dano:

Dude! your comp. is No. 14 on the chart! (why not No. 1??)
  Sat. 8/25/12 1:23pm Listener Tom:

Great show Michael - if Ama Tai Tai were from Rhodesia, maybe check out SWP records - they're an archival label out of the Netherlands that specializes in pop and trad music from Southern and East Africa. The guy who runs it, Michael Baird, is a Zimbabwean expat and has forgotten more about that music than most folks will ever know: http://www.swp-records.com/
