Listener comments!

  11:04am surfdog:

  11:06am surfdog:

oops !
sorry for the spellin error above,
surfdog.. must be my Floriduh public skhool edukation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07am dinatekno:

Buzzcocks!!! Excellent! You are right, that guitar at the end of the song is fantastic. Like you're in a vacuum tunnel.
  11:28am Cal Zone!:

So when they were not picking wild mountain berries, Peggi and Jo Jo were picking fights?
  11:29am Zev:

I've always wondered about the fuzz intro on "Let's Hang On" (if anyone's looknng for me, Zev -> interweb rabbithole...)
  11:31am surfdog:

Michael.. IMHO should have followed up the Incredible Casuals song with:
Grab Your Balls, We re Going Bowling Polka by "The Casuals"
  11:32am lloyd michigan:

Rockpile reunion.
  11:33am Zev:

I would totally want to own the "Les Paul Fish Spotter"!
  11:34am Peter:

Mistah Shell-ee!
  11:35am mark in toronto:

a whole show of Bob Dylan covers!
  11:35am JSG:

Seven figures... can't be R'pile or Brinsley Schwarz.
  11:35am Peter:

This song is basically a date-rape song.
  11:46am David in ATL from NJ:

Definitely Nick in the middle.
  11:49am Zev:

Yeah, but does Black-eyed Joe's have a 55 Buick knee deep in the ground?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am SeanG:

I think it's Mouthbreathers
Avatar 12:01pm northguineahills:

Gotta go, thanks for a good morning Michael!
  12:03pm JSG:

What a perfect drum sound.
Avatar 12:08pm Michael Shelley:

Agree - great mics, drums & drummer - but also the absence of multiple loud electric guitars
Avatar 12:10pm pgw in mntclr:

love me some Bobbie Gentry

This is a family show, so Hank couldn't reveal how he actually came to know for sure she was a bottle blonde.
  12:27pm Red:

groovy show today
  12:29pm mark in toronto:

Michael, a few weeks ago you had number of negative comments. I need more from a DJ than to back announce the tracks they just played. You are full of information and opinions about the little things that don't make sense in this world. Also, listening to half-remembered and unknown-to-me songs, I truly see why they are #1 hits - if not in this universe, then somewhere.
  12:29pm Queens L. Bow:

Yeah, wondering what that shadowy Nick Lowe photo is. Brinsley had 5 members, Rockpile had 4 (I'd be very surprised if that group is reuniting). Maybe some sort of super-group?
  12:31pm KP:

Thanks for FBB.
  12:31pm mark in toronto:

Brinsley Schwartz et al already reunited with Graham Parker to reform the Rumour. Unlikely that they would all combine with Rockpile to form a Supergroup.
  12:32pm Queens L. Bow:

Also, Nick L. is supposed to play that free show at Lincoln Center next month, but the Crickets are no longer on the bill (it was supposed to be their farewell show). Anyone know what happened? (can't find any news or update.)
  12:33pm JSG:

David Hidalgo is a national treasure. One of the most underrated guys in rock, along with Robin Zander.
  12:34pm Cal Zone!:

Today's show has incredible flow! Really enjoying it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Stevel:

I also saw Jonathan in that time frame (Jonathan Sings!) Everything else was so angry, snotty or angst ridden (which I loved,) but his show left me smiling and feeling very warm inside. Remarkable person/performer.
  12:39pm Peter:

Agreed about David Hidalgo..

One of the most beautiful voices. "Kiko", is one of rock's greatest albums.
  12:45pm Red:

wow, that Big Bad John song was in a very old TV commercial or TV show. Maybe on Channel 5.
Avatar 12:56pm pgw in mntclr:

by the way, that "You & Your Johnson" clip last week made my day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Parq:

Is this an NPR interview? I heard Jonathan Richman do this to them, too.
  1:00pm mark in toronto:

no, this is a Canadian CBC interview.
  1:01pm mark in toronto:

no, this is a Canadian CBC interview.
