Yes - my favorite song ever! Salud from Pittsburgh
  3:36pm Listener Jumpy:

I'm no lady but you're off to a great start.
  3:48pm Yair Yona:

No doubt, you can listen to Sundazed records all day long and still can't get enough
  3:57pm Bill from Clifton:

Mourning Reign, Ugly Ducklings, Move, Remains, Thursday's Children, Pstandells...where can I hear more of these great psixties psounds?

  4:29pm Listener Jumpy:

Oooh, the lyric, "Your daddy says I'm too old for you" hurt!
  4:37pm David Shortell:

I don't think I've ever heard Clear Light played on the radio before! Too bad you didn't play their first single's B-side, which I understand differs from the version heard on "The President's Analyst" soundtrack in that their proper vocalist sings it instead of Barry McGuire!
  4:43pm On the Yazoo:

Tie Dye Flashbacks.
  4:51pm David Shortell:

Aargh! Reading that Plimsouls track on the playlist reminds me that Peter Case was scheduled to perform at Vintage Vinyl Records today at the same time this program began! It's too late now.
  4:55pm Richard:

I'm streaming your show here in Seattle. YOU ARE ON FIRE! Thanks so much for the great tunes. Will this show be archived?
  4:59pm AP PB:

@David: He's playing tonight at Maxwell's as well. Granted, it's not a free show like VV was but you get to soak up that Hoboken ambience.

@Glenn: We'll see if we have time for the Grape. Lots of rekkids to get to.

@Ricahrd: Thanks! It should most definitely be archived along with Mike's other shows: http://wfmu.org/playlists/MV

@Everybody else: Thanks for the comments and for listening!
  5:16pm Tamby:
