Don't get no better than that!
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:15am glenn:

really? what did you tell your daughter about us?
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:18am Phelger Nank:

God's Own Drunk by James Buffet, another Bear song, would be an excellent follow-up.
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:25am Jon Graboff:

Lloyd Green on pedal steel on that Tommy Collins track BTW
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:30am Phelger Nank:

Don't know this band, but they've got #1 Hit slathered all over them, like some sort of aural sunscreen.
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:33am Dr. Goot:

I am overwhelmed with the plethora of links and #1 hits. Great Show Michael, thanks!
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:36am Elias:

If any of you get the chance, and it's well worth it, the Wellfleet Drive-In on Cape Cod (at least they used to) shows an amazing promo for the Incredible Casuals before the main feature. It must have been shot on 16mm, and is OLD.

  Sat. 3/30/13 11:39am Peter:

I suspect they do a slide show because they want to maximize the number of "clicks". A text list is only one click.. and besides, requires reading more than 5 lines of text.. something the kids of today find difficult.
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:40am Peter:

P.S. I hope that somehow Steve Earle hears what you said, and cans that guy.
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:41am ken in denver:

Steve Earle can be great when he gets off his soapbox.
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 11:46am Phelger Nank:


In concert, I've seen Jackson Browne & esp. Billy Bragg fillibuster longer than Earle
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:46am r edgerton:

valle does this in english on another one of his records
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:54am joe papaleo:

hi johnny, when are you coming back to the ocean county library in toms river nj...is there "bad blood" between you and joey with terry?...
  Sat. 3/30/13 11:57am don:

love this song!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:01pm Peter:

Every song I've heard of Montez's sounds the same - fortunately that "same" = great!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:02pm Johnny?:

do you still have and play the rickenbacker guitar you used on the conan o'brien show?
Avatar Sat. 3/30/13 12:04pm Jimmy Wipper:

Great Springfield track.

Love these guitar name-dropper records.
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:21pm Richard from Venezuela:

Great set.
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:25pm zoot:

Incredible Casuals - huzzah! Been a fan since the days of Travis, Shook, and the Club Wow.
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:26pm Bob:

Ask Johnny if they are planning any midwest dates.
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:32pm Q:

joey is one of my favorite song writers and bass players...
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:32pm Peter:

I grew up in Forest Hills. I remember that photo booth!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:36pm joe p:

i thought you guys were from the bronx?
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:38pm joe p:

yesss, my favorite drummer of all time!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:51pm Jon Graboff:

Compliment Johnny for keeping the interview clean. He doesn't need to work blue!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:54pm David in ATL from NJ:

Michael, snag a copy of that Tommy disc so you can play some more of those tracks!
  Sat. 3/30/13 12:55pm joe p:
