Father of two teenage daughters sez...that dog-walking guy may have had a point. But he should have kept it to himself in any case.

Dave - settlement for what?
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 11:42am DeemerDave:

Hi Mike. Some class action suit in Cali. Apparently Chase was overcharging their credit card customers. I got $25 bucks, the lawyers got the rest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 3/2/13 11:43am Mike Sin:

Good morning, Michael.

Minor correction: "Mercybeats" should actually be "Merseybeats"

Marlena Shawn possibly the longest record you've played, Michael?

Maybe I should start a class action against Comcast. I'll bet that's worth at least $30.

Love that Phil Baugh. Reminds me of that Hank Crawford song where he imitates those 50s guitar greats
  Sat. 3/2/13 12:11pm mark in toronto:

this phil baugh track is great. it brings to mind the great Bill Kirchen doing "Hot Rod Lincoln" on Hot Rod Lincoln Live, on Hightone

mark in to, have you had the awesome butter chicken roti from gandhi?

Re: Bo Diddley -- TIL "Bo Diddley" was recorded at Chess studios, March 2, 1955. Also happy birthday Lou Reed and Dr. Seuss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:14pm G:

I call groundhog day, one month late.

We had the hate-Rush/Rush-is-ok argument on bryce yesterday in this time slot, in efd on weds night, etc. :)

What *is* it about Rush? Why not hate on Kansas every so often? :)
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:14pm DeemerDave:

Any Muffs today, Michael?
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:16pm glenn:

because rush gets mentioned a whole lot more than kansas? it's also my contention that all bands named after places suck.
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:17pm Michael Shelley:

the movie about Rush is great - but their music doesnt work for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:18pm Mike East:

@G - probably because die hard Kansas fans are harder to come by than die hard Rush fans. I think haters tend to hate more passionately when the fans love more passionately and the hater disagrees. me, I'm in the middle. I went through a Rush phase in highschool and I'll own that, but I totally understand why people think they're lame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:18pm G:

so that really just pushes the analysis back a stage in the process -- i.e., why don't people mention kansas or 80s genesis or whatnot more, so they can share the hate? :)
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:18pm DeemerDave:

I have a soft spot for Boston and early Chicago is pretty damn good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:19pm Mike East:

Oh, I've done my share of Genesis hating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 3/2/13 12:20pm Parq:

Possibly the only number one hit ever about an order of protection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:20pm G:

@Mike: I'm with you re passion/hating.

I can see worthwhile things and failings about anything, so I just don't make a good rooter.

When I go a baseball game, I'm polite (and cautious) and cheer for the hometeam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:20pm Mike East:

who opened this can of worms, damnit?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:21pm G:

@Mike: But have you been in three 80s Genesis pro-and-cons on the board here in 3-1/2 days? :)
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:21pm Michael Shelley:

For your lunch?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:22pm Mike East:

Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:22pm DeemerDave:

Sorry Mike, I mentioned 2112 knowing that it would cause a ruckus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:22pm G:

@Mike: Glenn said he hated long sings, and voila, Rush:


glenn: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. 2112..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:23pm G:

and you were RIGHT :)
  Sat. 3/2/13 12:23pm mark in toronto:

I just read the fake Zombies blog. It's very funny, well written, and the pictures are great.

Mike - are you cooking for WFMU this marathon? AND are any of you folks answering phones on Saturday?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/2/13 12:34pm Mike East:

@Michael - I wish! I offered to bring some bagels, but I would have to bring Lucie (my wife works on weekends). Scott advised against bringing a baby from personal experience. Next year for sure!
Avatar Sat. 3/2/13 12:35pm DeemerDave:

Kind of far for me to drive Michael. I hope I can join you someday though.
