Listener comments!

  3:10pm Jumpy:

I was just trying to explain the Vacant Lot to a couple of friends this week. I hope they're listening.
  3:15pm Laurie:

Oh, I love those Yellow Pills comps.

And I have that Bomp comp! Bomp! comp. Whatever!
  3:21pm Laurie:

omg, "when I'm with you I get an extension. and I don't mean Alexander Graham Bell's invention." That's wrong.
  3:46pm chris:

More scratchy Nick Lowe!!! I think we have very similar collections. Great fill in!
  3:48pm jahna:

I agree totally that Nick Lowe is AWESOME rock.
  4:00pm Tom:

The Elevators are going show, right?
  4:09pm ?:

I prefer the Royal Purple's amazing version of 'I can't xplain this feeling'! Thanx for playing the original! Great show so far!!
  4:28pm Jumpy:

HANG IT OUT TO DRY started out as ts own seperate life as an LP.
  4:30pm frenchee:

I also prefer the Royal Purple version anonymous poster!
  4:31pm frenchee:

Hey Jumpy!
  4:34pm Topkat:

this is a heads up if ya don't already know, the Stems have called it quits and are in the midst of an Aussie farewell tour.
  4:37pm Jumpy:

Howdy, frenchee!
Mike, I have "Green Light" by American Breed. I think they done did it first.
  4:38pm Jumpy:

It's true about the Stems but Dom and all of the them have their own bands.
  4:42pm Topkat:

yeah Jumpy, but they're another outfit I never got to see live. My Aussie friends are traveling about the country to see the last performances.
  4:45pm Gerjan from Holland:

This shit is fuckin great!
  4:52pm steve:

Nick Lowe's Labour of Lust is a great album. It needs to re-released on CD.
  5:14pm David Shortell:

Why the guilt over playing "Inside Looking Out"? Somehow, this is the first time I've ever heard that track played on ANY radio, let alone "classic rock" radio.
  5:40pm Tom:

Dig the Troggs!
  5:42pm Lud:

This shit reminds me of a current movie interpretation the "60s"--believe me no 60s radio played this bubble gum crap. There was a reason these lost treasures were buried..and forgotten.
  5:46pm frenchee:

Hey LUD, Peace man!
  5:53pm Terre T:

Been able to hear the show off n'on thru the iPhone . Went to Amoeba in LA& coincidentally just picked up a Golden Earrings comp!! U guys sound great! Can't wait to hear Therese's fillin for Scharpling on The Best Show next Tues! Hi Frenchee! And thanx for the great fillin Mike!
