Listener comments!

  11:01am paul in FL:

Happy birthday, George Harrison!
  11:01am Caryn:

It's Michael & Todd! It's Mike Todd!
  11:03am James:

Good morning, folks!
  11:04am paul in FL:

Morning, James.
  11:12am glenn:

i was thinking of gerry todd, my fave bit from sctv.
  11:18am Robert:

Play any Dick Todd?
  11:22am Jeezy:

Yes, I know the marathon's important but I'm stunned that Bob B. didn't acknowledge George Harrison's bday... And will Todd and Michael?!
Is this great artist doomed to go unremembered and uncelebrated?!?! Bahahaha
  11:23am Robert:

Just for background, Dick Todd;s heyday would be a bit early for this program, but too late for MAC. He comes in during Rich Conaty's period.
  11:23am frenchee:

YAY! Todd-a-Phonic the supersonic and Mr. Michael Shelley! I love this Spanish Chicas CD, fantastic NO. 1 HIT en español
  11:25am paul in FL:

Amen, Jeezy.
  11:28am Danne D:

Trying out phone seeing if important thinsgs like commenting are hard with this phone :) keep pledging to the great Michael Shelley!!!
  11:29am Robert:

The funny thing is that the SCTV people soon afterward thought that they were passe with the video disc jockey thing, considering that the old optical discs had come & gone, but didn't realize they'd anticipated VJs very well.
  11:32am garrett "jammin"ammann:

1st time.Saw item in News.Great stuff.Jammin in New Haven Ct.
  11:34am Snortley:

Star Diner rice pudding!!!

  11:53am Mike East:

btw...I'll be answerin' phones next week - and lunch is on me!
  12:07pm Peter:

Michael, the blog post is up, and of course, I pledged. Saturday mornings without #1 hits, would absolutely suck. Thanks for all your hard work, year round.

  12:14pm Jordan:

  12:20pm Juke Joint Jonny:

I just pledged, Dave, and now I'm on my way to that link! THANKS!
  12:39pm dave:

just warning you: you probably won't be thanking me any more by about halfway through side 3.
  12:43pm Joey X:

Buy your ticket, take the ride... I'll just listen to the original for an hour, that works for me too.
  12:45pm dave:
