Hey Mike and Liz.
  3:42pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Soundin' great!
  3:44pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Michael from Strange Haze DJs with me tonight at Satellite Lounge. This kind of music....
  3:47pm philo:

A number of years ago Terre T played her father's favorite record The Five Satins "In The Still Of The Night". It was a very moving moment when she introduced it. It's worth looking back in her archives.
  3:51pm RC:

Double Live Gonzo was playing on the cassette deck when i had my FIRST car wreck. Don't remember the song, like to think it was great white buffalo, but I was doing my own screaming as the car went in the ditch.

Loving this music.
  3:54pm pierre:

@fred: depends, work keep piling up, and some dead lines are approching. I'd really love to see them though.

  4:21pm Destroit:

hello Mike & Liz, I like it. Keep it up.
  4:24pm Beavis:

heh hehe heh eh heh heh, got any tp?
  4:24pm Steve Liesch:

This might just be the best show I've ever heard on this station - been listening since the early 70's!
  4:28pm KP:

just got my literature LP.
  4:33pm KP:

Pierre, you dont take Saturdays off?
  4:36pm Destroit:

Wtf, kp? You think everything's on your clock?
  4:36pm the glowing one:

it's my time reminds me of boys don't cry
  4:37pm Destroit:

Me too glowing one, and hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm frenchee:

KP! Hola!
  4:44pm Philo Gristle:

Hey Mike! Just logged in, missed Bevis Frond, drats! Looks like a great set to catch in the archives. And the bouncy garage tunes work well to Derby visuals (idiotic commentary never worth listening to).
  4:45pm SteveL:

I find no need to compare WFMU jocks, but NO ONE puts a set together BETTER than Mike Sin!
  4:47pm kat330:

Didn't get a fill-in notice this time, Mike (see your email ;), so Philo and I dropped by mighty late and by happenstance. We've missed some great stuff but at least can pick it up from here to the end.
  4:52pm the glowing one:

I never knew Bob Dylan used to be in a band...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm frenchee:

Derby, Cinco de Mayo, Mike Sin...great combo on a gray day
  4:54pm kat330:

@TGO: Traveling Wilbury's ?
@Frenchee: Yep! Just had some nachos and we're right across from the Derby. :)
  4:55pm KP:

What's the story on the Bloos spelling?
  4:56pm the glowing one:

@kat330: that's a supergroup, not a band ;-)
  4:56pm KP:

is that Zimmerman really 2 cds. Thansk
  4:57pm kat330:

You got me there. :)
  4:58pm Parq:

Mike, sounding killer, as always. Why don't you, D.A., Kelly and a couple of others start up a 24-hour garage stream? And biggest ups to dear Frenchie, who's looking good, I have no doubt.
  5:01pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Is that the same "Wild About My Lovin'" the Flamin' Groovies did?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm frenchee:

KP, it might not be. I'll check.
  5:08pm kat330:

@KP: On the Bloos spelling: I'll hazard a guess the group wanted to match the first word to the Magoos spelling?
  5:08pm KP:

i ordered it regardless. Mike is right, CDs are cheap enough i can hire someone to listen to them for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Mike Sin:

Folks, sorry about that wrong front-announce!
  5:18pm KP:

Off to OTB.thanks.
  5:48pm SteveL:

Dear GOD this is groovy!

Black Hollies are one of my favorite bands out there now.
  5:52pm Destroit:

Mike Sin, thank you. Radio great. Oh, thanks to you Liz:)
  5:55pm SteveL:

Wow. Tremeloes.
  6:03pm Destroit:

Keep dealing cards. Appreciated.
  6:07pm SteveL:

Don't give up the mike!!
  6:11pm SteveL:
