Listener comments!

Mike Sin. Mike's in. Sin is in.
  3:05pm mrmucho:

Jim Fox rules
  3:10pm On the Yazoo:

The James Gang. That was the first Cassette tape I ever bought.. Cutting Edge.. big improvement over an 8-track.
  3:11pm Rob Steffens:

Hi Mike.
  3:13pm SteveL:

Hi Mike. If its not Terri T it might as well be you! Carry on.
  3:18pm kat330:

Hey, Mike, thanks for the heads-up invite! Can't stay for the whole show, but we'll enjoy the Sin out of it while we can.
  3:19pm Scuttle:

Agh! love The Normals
  3:26pm Rob Steffens:

Your mic's really low, Mike.
  3:32pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Mike and all the listeners.
  3:40pm Snortley:

Copyright persists for 75 years after the death of the original holder, and Ravel passed away in 1937.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Nate K:

That's only in the US, right?
  3:45pm Snortley:

Actually, I think the US recently added an extension past the 75 years. There are international conventions that vary, and besides, are not always observed in practice in some jurisdictions.
  3:45pm G:

wikipedia: "Works published or registered before 1978 currently have a maximum copyright duration of 95 years from the date of publication, if copyright was renewed during the 28th year following publication (such renewal was made automatic by the Copyright Renewal Act of 1992; prior to this the copyright would expire after 28 years if not renewed). The date of death of the author is not a factor in the copyright term of such works."
  3:46pm efd:

Yes! Piper! Great show so far, Mike! And hi to Nate the K.
  3:46pm Rob Steffens:

hi Richard.
  3:46pm G:

Yes, that's current *US* law, Nate.
  3:48pm Frank:

Hi Mike!

  4:16pm Rob Steffens:

i'll ask Michael about that, tomorrow Mike.
  4:17pm dale:

  4:17pm Rob Steffens:

  4:17pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

I always heard RUBINOOZ.
  4:22pm glenn:

is nate the k any relation to ira the k?
  4:22pm dale:

crazy glenn - i'll have to watch later. here's another goofy one:

  4:23pm Dano:

Ahh, nice beginning set today -- a nod to the Marathon with the Scaffold track - always loved McGear for not capitalizing on Paul's name... and the James Gang! The interpolated bits drove me crazy; thought 'Bolero' was 'Caravan' at first ... then I realized the other part was Cast Yr Fate to the Wind... nice video of that full version here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byemtlXKTYU -- Thanks Mike! Good stuff.
  4:29pm glenn:

mike douglas had some great musicians on over the years. i seem to recall (but i could be wrong), john lennon playing with chuck berry and ted nugent on some tunes.
  4:31pm dale:

lennon and berry played together on johnny cash - with clapton i think.
  4:31pm Frank:

Cool version of Get The Picture
  4:32pm G:

@dale: FWIW Douglas appearance was 1976, according to a website monkeesconcerts.com that documents their performances/appearances:

  4:32pm frenchee:

Ira the K and Nate the K are each their very own special K's.
  4:35pm David Shortell:

I once caught the end of Three O'Clock's set at City Gardens. I understand they had to change their name from Salvation Army when the real Salvation Army complained!
Just as that other south Cal 80's group, Redd Kross, initiated the bizarre misspelling of their name when the real Red Cross complained.
  4:35pm dale:

gotta go back out to the garage, but i have tunes out there - EXCELLENT show mr. deejay!
  4:36pm Christina:

dig the Q65!
  4:40pm Frank:

YES! Hot chat with Nate The K!
  4:40pm Aaron:

Boatmans call
  4:40pm Aaron:

Boatmans call
  4:42pm glenn:

i got lots of opinions. which one do you want?
  4:43pm Frank:

I still like the Pretty Things better, but I like the Wild Colonials better than The Rational's version.
  4:50pm Destroit:

hello mike, and everyone. Enjoying the show.
  4:54pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

GTVs =astounding!
  4:54pm glenn:

  4:57pm David Shortell:

The GTVs are playing the El Bar on St. Patrick's Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Mike Sin:

Hey Folks!!!! Thanks for listening and commenting! I'm having a great time. I hope you all are too!
  5:00pm Frank:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Nate K:

  5:14pm glenn:

  5:14pm G:

Kid Rock, b. 1971. Not recording in 1973 :-)
  5:15pm glenn:

especially considering he was born in 1971.
  5:17pm Rob Steffens:

  5:18pm Destroit:

Hey man, Kid has so much game he drops tracks when he's two.

  5:42pm David Shortell:
