Nice to 'see' you Mike. Getting dark here, bring us some sunshine. Not from California.

Hopefully, the Sin's program goes better than Sinner's Crossroads last night (JC power outage).

Hey other Mike! I just watched Jingle Bell Rocks last night, great dov! Wish michael had interviewed the director last week

@Ken From Hyde Park: Is why there's no archive of Billy Jam's show? Others archives are missing, I hope it's not because some hardware fried. These are usually lean times for the station on the financial front
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am MattBelow:

Right-o Mike! Listening while I set up microphones. It's motivating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am Ken From Hyde Park:

@fred - Yes, a raccoon got into some wires somewhere and power was out for a couple of hours. I guess I meant Downtown Soulville, although that doesn't rhyme. www.wfmu.org...

Has anyone played a version of Rocky Raccoon since the outage?
Avatar 11:47am Sem Chumbo:

Sure sorry I missed the first 49 minutes of the show, I will be Archives-bound later on. Hiya, Mike Sin, and all.

The article does not mention the fate of the raccoon. Greetings Mike Sin and everyone with the power on.

Good tunes and great pic or Brian Jones--haven't seen that one!

This show is SINsational!
Avatar 11:57am Brian in UK:

You can carbon date the clothes circa '66. If he had shoes they would have two eyelets per shoe. As to the airborne records?

Hi Mike, Hi Joe Hi Cheryl!

Old style radio fades away as you become world famous, Mike.

A pleasant (and rare) rainwashed morning in the desert. Bring the psych Mike!

Whoa TOPT, Cheryl, Joe Ken....what SINergy!!
Avatar 12:06pm PeterRarebit:

Great set, Mr Sin, and Thank you, sir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm MattBelow:

Nice. Never heard Denny's version before. Real cool! Imagine if he convinced Macca to do a version for Wild Life
Avatar 12:08pm Brian in UK:

Ian McLagan struck me as a decent bloke. Gurf Morlix will be very sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Gaylord Fields:

Another SINtillating program, WFMU-hating raccoon be damned!

If you are ever at Edgware Station and need a salt beef sandwich.

TOPT feeling intimidated because you are playing all my faves!!! Go Mike go! xoxo

Sounds like it takes the giddy biscuit, the B&K salt beef sand.

Hey! Thanks for the nice comments, folks!

@Brian in UK: I truly miss visiting London, even if it's the home of the ten-quid sandwich!

I also remember fondly seeing a band called Raccoo-oo-oon. I haven't heard about them in years, and don't know whether they're still active
  12:27pm frenchee:

Delightful show as always, Mr. Sin! (I wondered why FMU wasn't coming in last night....)
Avatar 12:29pm SmokinJ:

Havin' a ball!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@frenchee: That's just the kind of false naivete that someone whose rampaging pet raccoon had just recently escaped would write!
  12:34pm frenchee:

you got my number, Gaylord! RIP Wrecky Raccoon. Good job.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Gaylord Fields:

I speak truth to power (outages), frenchee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Gaylord Fields:

Also, "Wrecky Raccoon" — well-played.

Yayyyyy! SLADE!
Avatar 12:53pm Brian in UK:

Christ Mike we cannot escape this song in every bluddy shop over here. Noddy may be a national institution but it was the man with the bad haircut that made the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@Brian in UK: When Mike announced he had 20 minutes to go, I presume it took you aback, as it did to me.
Avatar 12:56pm Brian in UK:

Totally. Marianne doing the Beatles. If you pardon the expression.
Avatar 12:56pm Juke Joint Jonny:

"Man with the bad haircut" doesn't narrow it down enough when we're talking about Slade

Great show as always, Mike!
Avatar 12:57pm Brian in UK:

Alright - Dave Hill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Brian in UK: I may be an unrepentant Anglophile, but I'm grateful the tradition of the "Christmas No. 1 single" has not made it stateside.
  12:57pm V Priceless:

Fine show Mike! Thanks for Slade!
  12:57pm kat330:

Hey, Mike! Getting our 2-cents end here at the end: Philo and I have been listening with pleasure -- thanks!
