Gute morgen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Uncle Michael:

One of the things I love about Shotgun Boogie is that it's kinda hillbilly Joe Turner...and it's the sort of thing that complicates the conventional roots of rock and roll wisdom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am scuzfink1:

Washing dishes to the ol' pea-picker. Thanks from a sing-along baritone!
  11:29am lloyd michigan:

TEF was a big influence on Nick Lowe. I learned that from a NL interview with M. Shelley.
Avatar 11:32am Marc Francis:

This song is lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am ChrisB.:

Saw Pugwash in Asbury Park Thursday. Amazing. If you have the chance, go see them in Brooklyn. You will be impressed. and have fun.
  11:39am Todd-o-phonic:

Wow, somehow missed this version...now we're talking beach music!

Where has this #1 hit been hiding all my life?

This is a #1 hit.

This is a cracker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am Pedro G.:

Where's this General Johnson/Joey track from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Pedro G.:

I would like to think that General Johnson and Joey are alive and well and have set up a studio in one of those cool motels in the Wildwoods. Please tell me that's the case.

  11:44am lloyd michigan:

Ordered the 2-disc set before the song was over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Pedro G.:

Whenever these sociopathic Republicans want to talk about family values, they should be required to focus on the Michael Shelley family making WFMU happen on Saturday mornings like today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Miss Mailas:

I second that, Pedro!
Avatar 11:56am Marc Francis:

Loving today's set Mr Shelley. The only thing that could make right now any better is if someone brought me an omelette bagel sandwich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Gordon FM:

Huh. Never heard the Babybird before. Real good. Thanks, and howdy!
  12:07pm noel:

Where did you get this Stones song from?
  12:10pm Stuart Rose:

My question, too, Noel.
Is it a Jagger/Richards original?

Brain Jones must be playing the chimes or whatever the bell sounds are.
Avatar 12:12pm Sonny Rickles:

its on their 1975 comp Metamorphis
  12:12pm Stuart Rose:

Pedro, you make it sound as if Michael's family is some unconventional family.
He's got a wife, and a bright, articulate daughter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Cat:

maybe the Nats could beat the Mets if we had John to sure up our bullpen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Good noon all & Michael's all. Waiting on the Pandora's. Doubly so now. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Pedro G.:

Stuart Rose--Was just referencing the fact that Mike's on the air, his daughter is helping out both on the air and off and his wife is getting food for today's guests. That's very cool and a touch unusual for any radio show in 2015. That's all. Oh, and all the Republicans running for president are disgusting. That's all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Stevel:

Holy crud, do they sound good! Tour polish is showing.

Please consider extending your tour to Fort Wayne Indiana. For me.
  12:37pm Guy Walker:

What the world needs now is more music like this. Don't ever stop.
  12:38pm Don Juan:

Does anyone from the PANDORAS know where OGNIR is?
  12:39pm Becky:

Is in the house.
  12:46pm Hackensack Slim:

Oh Yeah! Kim is giving Gerry Roslie a run for his money.
  12:49pm lloyd michigan:

('I Live My Life' echoes 'Too Many People' by The Leaves from L.A. - wonderfully...)
  12:58pm Stuart Rose:

Great live show. And the chat's good, too.

Point taken, Pedro, about the homey quality of mike's show.
  1:03pm miss Georgia peach:
