  5:41pm STeve:

Mike - Just so you know, Underdog was on Sly's Whole New Thing LP.
  9:05pm Rob Steffens:

Heard last 10 seconds of 'Switching to Glide' this afternoon at work. Could barely make it out due to someone vacuuming. Been waiting patiently for archive to be posted. A jock friend of mine who used to mock my friends and I for liking punk, new wave, etc. back in 1980, actually loved this song. He helped me get my first job in the graphics industry doing paste-up at the Hackensack Observer. We used to listen to FMU and WNYU's 'New Afternoon Show' at work. He would just smirk and shake his head at most of the music we liked. He died at age 22 from cancer. I'll never forget him or that song. Oh yeah, thanks for the Piper, too.
  6:37pm Ronnie B.:

Your fill in are always great. I always listen more than once.
  1:35pm John W:

Mike Sin: the grooviest locked inner groove! Rock on Sin!
  12:19pm Heidi Cavegurl:

We really enjoyed your set Mike! The Brimstones, and I, thank you for the play & plug! Long Live New Jersey Rock & Roll! ;)
