Listener comments!

  10:09am Paul:

Aren't those the same two songs that opened last week's show?
  10:11am Bill:

You know they are. Why pose it in a passive aggressive way?
  10:13am david:

15 minutes into the show and I'm hearing only #1 hits. What gives here?
  10:14am Deuce:

Give Paul a Valium..
  10:18am Joe from NJ:

Mike always opens the show with his favorite song(s) from the previous show.
  10:29am SmokinJ:

No more mailbox? Whew!
  10:44am Paul:

Thanks, Joe.
  10:54am SmokinJ:

Frank Gorshin?
  10:54am SmokinJ:

  11:00am Peter K.:

Well, if nobody else is going to say it, I guess I will: The character played by Heath Ledger in the new Batman movie is the Joker, not the Riddler. Similar names, I know, but two different characters. (I'm by no means a Batman fanatic, and I haven't seen the new movie either, but I do know that much.)

But so what? You're doing a great show as usual, Michael. Keep those Number One Hits coming!
  11:01am david:

Is there a flip side to "The Riddler"? That was killer!
  11:04am SmokinJ:

You KNOW there's a flip side david! But will MIchael ever play it????? Hmm..
  11:19am Smiling Goat:

Wow, that "love they neighbor" track was great!
  11:23am david:

Can't hear enough of NRBQ! Keep the #1 hits coming!
  11:24am WILDGIRL:

On deck for Aug. 9th with Mr. Shelley:
Troggs, Sonics, Sweet, Monkees, Cramps, Cynics, Dead Boys, Mitch Ryder, Animals, Stooges, Ramones, Duane Eddy, Dictators, Music Machine, Mummies, Swingin' Neckbreakers, Motorhead, Bar-Kays, Link Wray... etc. etc. we're gonna ROCK!

See you all next week.


  11:27am DeemerDave:

Well, I understand. The interviews must take lots of time to arrange and prepare but I will miss them. Can we maybe have the mailbox back?

Thanks for all you do, Michael!
  11:33am joff:

Hey Mr Shelley...
the Muffs are the bestest! ...Thankyou !
its my birthday today and im already quite drunk!
terribly sorry...
  11:34am Paul:

You didn't like 21, Michael? It's my second favorite Kevin Spacey/Kate Bosworth movie (Beyond the Sea is the other).

Actually, I thought 21 was pretty good.
  11:34am SmokinJ:

You go WG!
  11:34am Parq:

Wildgirl, I have to deposit the kid in college next weekend. I'l dig the archive for sure, but I won't be able to post any comments. So here, in advance, are best wishes from an old fan.
  11:57am Paul:

I'd have to give this a thumbs up!
  12:02pm DeemerDave:

The sound is a bit garbled but like the bluesy groove of "There Ain't Nothing True About You".
