Morning Michael!

You're killing it all ready. A favorite Roger Miller song and that Who Do You Love was terrific.

I like this Aloe Blacc cut. Hadn't heard it before
Avatar 11:11am Marc Francis:

Elle King actually does a pretty great cover of American Girl. I played it at the bar I work at and it went over well!
Avatar 11:15am Sean B.:

@MichaelShelley Hmmm... RE: Versions of "Who Do You Love" never thought about it until you mentioned it....;Cheesh even The Doors version was pretty good!. Bo was one of the ALL All Time Greats.
  11:18am KP:

Was Roger McGuinn's "American Girl" mentioned? It's his sound, if not song, and Petty to his credit readily acknowledges that.
Avatar 11:19am Sean B.:

Hi Marc!.... 'MBR Marc? If so you're up there in my FAVE D.J's man!. One of the greats!.

Damn, have never seen a good record at that Salvation Army so I rarely go. Congrats on finding a few cool things at least. And to think I dropped some stuff off outside to give them while all those records were probably inside!

Billy Joe Royal will definitely not be returning your e-mail now.

Killer show today Mr. Shelley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am drr:

Ask around Harper Valley, maybe.
  11:57am middlebun:

Now I need to hear Harper Valley PTA
  11:57am chalmers:

Wow, Carol Kaye even took her pro-Palmer, anti-Blaine crusade to the Amazon comments section in a book where she claims to be misquoted.

I'd say the title of the book but it uses the common name for that group of session musicians that she detests (possibly because Blaine coined it).
  12:03pm lloyd michigan:

Now I need to hear Harper Valley PTA doing Beautiful Downtown Burbank.
