Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Mike Sin:

  12:08pm Doug S.:

Greetings to all streamers and dreamers. We are honored to have the on the Drummer Stream today the Encyclopedia Rocktanica himself. Welcome Mr. Sin!
  12:10pm SteveL:

Mike Sin: When you can't have Amanda and only the best will do!
  12:11pm kat330:

Hi, Mike!! Tried to get in early before my noon rituals but the list wasn't ready yet. Looking forward to a most Sin-ful show! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Mike Sin:

Alf, James, Dervish, Doug, SteveL, kat330 -- Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12:27pm kat330:

Cruise control set to 45, but speeding along at about 80 -- that's my Mike!
  12:31pm Carmichael:

Hi Mike. I'll need all the rock you got today. Keep crankin' it out.
  12:36pm SteveL:

Cool stuff can wait.
  12:42pm Mary Wing:

Mike on the stream! Woo! What, no ass-prodders for you?
  12:44pm kat330:

Ahh, great tune and cover!
  12:57pm Ass-prodders:

No respect I tell ya. No respect.
  1:08pm Kelly Choi:

Great show!---almost all 7"/vinyl too! Yer a r
rock star!
  1:13pm AP Doe:

AP= Associate Producer ...and they deserve deep deference and appreciation!
  1:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Mike's IN!!!!
Glad to have you in today! And that festive Ludwig drum kit!
  1:16pm kat330:

Hey, Matt! Yep, like the drum kit, Sin's lit from within today -- radiant!
  1:16pm AP Doe:

Cyril Lords 7" came out 2003
  1:18pm AP Doe:

WHITE WIRES on Terre T 's show
Sept 8, 2012-
  1:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi kat! Hi everyone!
I agree, an audience who's really into it brightens up a live track.
  1:22pm Danne D:

So it's the No-zario Sin-ario today, eh?
Missin' Amanda, but always good to hear Mike :)
  1:22pm John W:

Working at home and digging the show as always!
  1:23pm kat330:

Ha, nice, Danne!
  1:24pm Carmichael:

7" records = lots of cueing and flinging. Nice work ethic, Mike!
  1:26pm Cuz Jerry:

Makin' my day! You're lighting it up.
  1:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: It's a lot of effort to play a string of vinyl properly. Think of Mac and all of his old records! It's very worth it though! Maybe not entirely "Single File", but certainly a "Vinyl File" today.
  1:30pm Doug S.:

WFMU is about a month away from its annual Singles Going Steady week. This show is getting me deeply into the spirit.
  1:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Rock Shop are rockin' the block off this shop! Woooo!
  1:31pm northguineahills:

Rock Shop, new to me and groovy.
  1:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: It may be hard for D:O to play all 7", but is everyone else at GTDR getting set to play all singles?
  1:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Belgium! indeed! Grabbletons are mighty good!
  1:38pm Doug S.:

Participation in Singles Going Steady is purely voluntary. I don't know yet about the other GTDR hosts.
  1:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Doug. But I do look forward to the all-week Single File!
  1:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Very slick set Mike! Going FANTASTIC!
  2:01pm Matt from Springfield:

The "vibe" on the Belgian one certainly felt more late 60s/early 70s to me.
  2:09pm DJ Terre T:

Brill show Mike! But uh... that *my* LOVE cd!
  2:10pm Matt from Springfield:

"Flower King of Flies"--LOVE this Nice one!
  2:11pm Artie:

Love Love. Nice Nice.
  2:14pm Carmichael:

Thought I heard Keith Emerson in there. And this Rain Parade is cool!
  2:17pm northguineahills:

I love this Spaceman jam.
  2:22pm kat330:

About every third track I hear a phrase reminding me of some other song, though usually I can't place it. Musicians were sharing and passing along more than joints back in the '60s-'70s (and on to the present).
  2:27pm SteveL:

My co-workers are starting to look at me funny.
  2:27pm kat330:

I'm not 100% certain I'll have whatever she was having.
  2:28pm John W:

Is Mike smoking a cigarette after that track by Man?
  2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Dapper cover of "I Am The Walrus". Nice.
  2:33pm kw:

What a flashback! The B-side of Ma Belle Ami by the Tee Set - had that when I was a little kid - loved to hear them say "damn"
  2:39pm kat330:

Aw, TY, Mike.
  2:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Commenter shout outs! Woo hoo!
Thanks Mike!
  2:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To -- what a album name!
  2:43pm Kelly Choi:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! "Ladies hate when you end early".Lil risque humour for the webstream!
  2:48pm Doug S.:

As Jack Kerouac (almost) said: "I'd rather be Sin than famous." Well the Drummer Stream had the mighty good fortune to have both for the past three hours. All praises to Mike Sin! Next Wednesday, Amanda's fill in will be Noise & Syrup with Jeff M (with a return visit to GTDR).

Be sure to tune in tomorrow at noon for another live streamcast of Busy Doing Nothing with Charlie Lewis.

Immediately following Mike's show, the Drummer Stream will revert back to its 24-hour manic sonic with these fine artists:
Ritchie Heart
The Highlanders
The Fairchilds
Charles Sheffield
Ralfi Pagan
Allen Ginsberg
Jimmy Braswell
William Parker Quartet
The Sweet Sixteens
Fanta Sacko
Kiko Kids Jazz
Rex Lawson & His Rivers Men
Prasan Wiangsima
Dao Bandon
Santi Lunphe
Buddy Rich & Alla Rakha
Daddy Stovepipe & David Crockett
and more
and more
and eternally more...
  2:52pm Matt from Springfield:

It's web only, why the fuck not!!

Personally I think Mike Sin fits thematically very well into the Ichiban stream--it would be great if he had a regular show (hint hint! ;), but I love the thrill that comes when I hear Mike Sin's filling in!
  2:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Manic sonic! Even better than the sonic mania we can usually expect from the stream!
  2:54pm Mary Wing:

Gotta jet, now that I'm fully caffeinated and hopped up on classic pop tunes! Thanks for the great show, Mike!
  2:54pm kat330:

Say, Mike, thanks a bunch for a fast and furious rockin' afternoon!
  2:57pm Matt from Springfield:

EARLY Sweet! '69!
Thanks Mike for another amazing fill-in! Love the energy and knowledge you bring, can't wait for your next show!
  2:57pm northguineahills:

Nice set Mike!
  3:01pm listener james from westwood:

friggin' awesome show, mike. thanks for jumpin' into the stream!
  3:01pm mark:

good show!
  6:22pm Parq:

Listened on the Archives today. As always, a great rock & roll show with heart, history and, uh, hurray! (What do you want from me, it the end of the day and I'm still at work.) Well done.
