Listener comments!

  3:03pm John W.:

The show is off to a great start! I hope you follow this up with Black Hollies.
  3:03pm Madi H.:

Yay it's Mike Sin.
  3:04pm kat330:

Hi, Mike! Made it this time.
  3:09pm Parq:

Hey there, Mike! And a presumptive hello to Frenchee.
  3:12pm EVGirl:

Hanging around at the end of Rex's show and hear that Mike Sin strikes again!
  3:26pm On the Yazoo:

LOL.. Hey All
  3:27pm G:

Nickname for backstage security dude:

Stud Muffin Top
  3:30pm kat330:

Amazing there's no visible tattoo.
  3:31pm kat330:

And is this how they came up with the word "bouncer"?
  3:32pm J.T.:

I'm glad to note he isn't a plumber, though.
  3:32pm G:

If he were just a little bit beachballier, the crowd might be able to keep him bouncing around the stadium for the duration of the set.
  3:32pm John W.:

Will there be a Mike Sin Marathon calendar?
  3:34pm kat330:

Ink free -- yay!
  3:36pm Don Juan:

Mietro is cool

This song puts me in the mood to hear something by Fanny

Guest DJs who play Thin Lizzy are OK.

  3:54pm kat330:

@Jim B: You and me both. Wasn't aware of this incarnation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Nate the K:

Hey all! Thanks for listening. Mike says hi, too!
  4:01pm Jim B:

Mr. Checker's "My Mind", Alison Krauss singing "Dazed and Confused" - there's an unmined vein that would make a great marathon premium!
  4:02pm kat330:

Hi, Nate! You have Mike hogtied and gagged in the studio?
  4:04pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Wha? I'm DJing soul with the singer from Strange Haze this very night!

"I have a different opinion!"- Everyone on the internet all the time
  4:22pm keef:

Thin Lizzy does rock. I know the indie world might disagree-but there's no denying it.
  4:28pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Luther 'N' the BBBs was fantastaic! What's their story?
  4:29pm Thierry from France:

Hi Mike, Nate, and the rest of the crowd in studio B. Speaking of crowds, which band is packing that stadium?
  4:30pm seang:

It's Saturday and life is good
  4:34pm Sonny Rickles:

Lovin all this hard rock and power pop, Mike!
You really should have a regular weekly show. You're the best!

GO MIKE!!!!!

I'm so happy to hear that Imperial Teen are still together. I used to go see them all the time in San Francisco...
  4:59pm PiLA:

Thanks for the Beach Town Confidential Plimsouls tip - sounds pretty great.
  5:06pm SteveL:

Awesome radio. Not posting much, just listening! Mike Sin is rock!
  5:06pm Kees:

Gene Clark played on the same day, by Bob Brainen as well as Mike Sin! Great!
  5:12pm glenn:

moby grape represent.
  5:12pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Hot Knives doing Moby Grape! Yes, please.
  5:14pm J.T.:

Mike is kicking ass, taking no prisoners. More!
  5:15pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Go Siberians! Sound great!
  5:18pm tomB:

amen to notes re Gene Clark &Moby Grape
  5:23pm John W.:

  5:33pm cb:

Morris 10 = http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/31/1946.morris.ten.series.m.arp.jpg
  5:35pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Eagles bio coming soon, Mike.
  5:37pm Kees:

Still, The Eagles were the main curse of the seventies.
  5:37pm SteveL:

JT: Fort Wayne still on the air. Where are you?
  5:38pm G:

What's the bio title? Life In The Bland Lane?
  5:40pm J.T.:

New Albany, next to Louisville. Back on now, just a blip it seems.
  5:40pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

GTVs= killer!
  5:41pm listener jimbo:

@Kees; no, that was Leo Sayer.
  5:42pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

"I Still Care" is a raving fave via Jeff Shore.
  5:42pm J.T.:

I wouldn't mind, generally, but this has been Sin-fully good.GTVs and Virgil M.... damn, all killer no filler.
  5:47pm Michael K.:

Substitute Teacher in the Clinic,in a different classroom/studio, and No SpitBalls!!
Gotta' Love it!
  5:52pm kat330:

@Kees: There were no lack of curses in the '70s.
  5:53pm SteveL:

J.T.:At least we've got both ends of the state covered. Enjoy.
  5:54pm J.T.:

For a moment thought this was a female singer... but guess it's n'between.
  5:54pm kat330:

@SteveL: Bottomheavy here at the bootheel of the state, since I'm also in New Albany. :)
  5:55pm SteveL:

Well, I've got at least one more in town, but that does make things a bit tippy.
  5:55pm Kees:

@ Jimbo: Leo Sayer no more; I hope.
@ Kat330: True. Still, you have to focus.

At least we had Statler & Waldorf as role models.
  5:56pm Steve-O:

Hey Mike! Sorry I missed ya today. Will try to listen later tonight, though. In the meantime, have fun, everybody! =)
  5:58pm David Shortell:

The January 21 icestorm made me miss the GTVs' debut, but maybe I'll catch them at Tritone with the Improbables on February 25.
  5:59pm kat330:

I think our outage was my PC-specific problem, not the stream. We are a hybrid household with J.T. on a Mac, and he was able to get us back on. Gotta love Windows -- or not. :(
  5:59pm black cherries:

let's make this a regular weekly thing!
  6:00pm J.T.:

Outstanding show, thanks Mike & comments board!
  6:01pm kat330:

Thanks muchly, Mike! Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!
