thought i recognized camera obscura. i gotta remind my wife how much she likes these guys
  Sat. 1/12/13 11:19am Peter:

I think Burt Bacharach would have been very happy to write "French Navy". That is some really good songwriting.
  Sat. 1/12/13 11:22am Phelger Nank:

It don't get more catchy and melodic than the French Navy (the song, not the martial entity).
Avatar Sat. 1/12/13 11:28am ?:

Doggone it, missed Ken Nordine! Love "Colors" in particular and word jazz in general.
Avatar Sat. 1/12/13 11:31am Philo Gristle:

Well, shoot, should log in first. Hello!
  Sat. 1/12/13 11:33am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel, Earth, Milky Way):

You're absolutely right with your observations about the gym

Avatar Sat. 1/12/13 12:11pm Michael Shelley:

Thanks Nate!
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:13pm Corey:

Thanks for linking to the Beach Boys interview! We are cleaning and processing a similar interview with Herman's Hermits. Should be up next week I'll let you know!
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:37pm Mike East:

so how's the veggie burger at Elevation Burger? I've past that place a hundred times, but never gone in.
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:44pm paul:

Great song. Ever hear the other Jack Webb "sing" Try a Little Tenderness? If not, you should.
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:45pm Mike East:

the Montclair Times article spelled Monkees wrong. Its a great piece, though.
Avatar Sat. 1/12/13 12:47pm Michael Shelley:

P- will check it out - email it to me if you have it

ME - they're fine - but they are of the patty of pressed together rice and spices - and I like the fake meat kind better - but the "garden burger" model is the one most restaurants serve - ALSO dont like their fries or shakes....
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:48pm paul:

Is I Come Home A-Drinkin' (To A Worn Out Wife Like You) available on any country compilation CD?
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:53pm dinatekno:

@paul I found Jay Lee Webb's version of I Come Home A-Drinkin' (To A Worn Out Wife Like You) on YouTube! http://youtu.be/JklhwexIQK4
  Sat. 1/12/13 12:55pm dinatekno:

Michael, thank you so much for making my Saturday's so much fun. Cleaning the house while twisting and dancing to the music is now a tradition for me!
  Sat. 1/12/13 1:00pm Wipper:

That's a great one, never heard it before!
  Sun. 1/13/13 11:33am David in ATL from NJ:

Love the "safe" play of "Bright Future in Sales". Thanks for at least getting it played. Fountains of Wayne are terrific! Replayed your show with the interview from last year just this past week.
