It's official. Saturday has begun. So says Mike Sin with his very first song.

Hi Mr Sin! Rock!
Avatar 11:06am Sonny Rickles:

Very nice so far! Good morning Mike!

Nice surprise! Mornin' Mike! 8-)

Saturday Rock City is already here! Saturday Rock City is with Mikey Sin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Miss Mailas:

Glad to see you back here, Mike! Good morning, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Santos L. Halper:

Great start Mike. Zacharia! : )
Was listening to the Fringe Factory premium this week and noticed a song called Optical Sound; your inspiration?
  11:13am P-90:

Happy Saturday Mike, thanks for filling in.
Avatar 11:13am Marc Francis:

Good morning Miss Mailas!!! And everyone else!
  11:14am Stuart Rose:

I tell you, Mike, when it comes to garage rock, power pop, and hard driving psychedelia, no jock on FMU has better ears than you.

Where's your regular slot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I like to say - Mike Sin can drop a Volume of Nuggets on demand.
...Where's his 24/7 stream ?
Avatar 11:18am SmokinJ:

Mike plays the stuff my brain screams for! 8-)
Avatar 11:23am Marc Francis:

Damn son. You are on fire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Miss Mailas:

  11:26am Stuart Rose:

I like your idea for a Sinn 24/7
  11:39am Mark R.:

I only heard this "House of Bamboo" nuthouse for the first time about a year ago. I was like, "OMG this is probably the greatest song ever recorded!" Thanks for sharing it with an unsuspecting world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Miss Mailas:

Agreed, Mark. That song is very, very special indeed.
Avatar 11:44am Brian in UK:

Hello Mike. My favourite Roulettes track used to be 'Long Cigarette'. Sill is, I guess.
Avatar 11:44am Sonny Rickles:

A Pet Clark song?! Love it!
Avatar 11:45am Todd-o-phonic:

A lot of us first heard The Roulettes via the "Long Cigarette
inclusion on the My Generation comp. Great job as always Mike!
Avatar 11:48am Brian in UK:

@Todd I remember it when it was released. I think they were Adam Faith's backup band. Ever heard his song 'Green Finger'? A belter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Mike Sin:

Folks! Thanks for joining in and commenting! Wish I could but I just don't have the skillz to multi-task!
Avatar 11:56am Mailman Tom:

Hey, great to hear you again, Mike !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Gaylord Fields:

Just answering "present" for roll call here at the Mike Sin/"The Long Cigarette" Appreciation Society.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm Gaylord Fields:

@Brian in UK: "I Don't Need That Kind of Lovin'" is the winner for me in the Adam Faith/Roulettes pairing.
Avatar 12:06pm David Shortell:

I'm perusing the playlist and noticed "Zachariah". I first heard of the movie just last Sunday on David Ossman's birthday. The Firesign Theatre wrote it, based on Hesse's "Siddhartha". I saved it on my youtube "Watch Later" list:

Avatar 12:08pm David Shortell:

It looks like Andy Williams' "House of Bamboo" came out after the Samuel Fuller film of the same name. Probably no connection, right?
Avatar 12:18pm David Shortell:

Nelson Muntz takes issue with Mike Sin concerning Andy Williams:

  12:20pm Nate K:

Jogging to Optical Sound like all true rockers do.
  Swag For Life Member 12:22pm tadpoles:

Agree Mike, that Colin Blunstone version was, to put it in a phrase from the time, terrific!

And how come that Pink Floyd EP is available only in such limited numbers to make it $300 on eBay? To put it in a phrase from the time - pathetic!
  12:24pm SeanG:

hot damn this is good
  12:30pm V Priceless:

Yay Kinks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Julie:

hey you're playin my boys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Julie:

from Percy no less!
  12:33pm dennis diken:

jolly good show Mike! you just played one of my fave Spoonful tracks, thanks! hope to see y'all at the Spoonful trib we're reprising at Bowery Electric Jan 6!
Avatar 12:35pm Marc Francis:

This song is fucking GORGEOUS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

*Yawn* That was a nice nap. All rested up for the end of the show and what's to come.
  12:48pm DG:

Wow, had no idea Sly was inspired by the Beatles (& were smart enough to "borrow" without copying the actual melody)...cool song though. I need to listen to more of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Parq:

Great show, Mike. Lots of great stuff. Thanks for coming into Monty today.
  12:52pm ?:

Great tunes. Was expecting the other Mike. New programming schedule?
Avatar 12:53pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Go Mike Sin! A Cheryl fave!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm doctorjazz:

Fun show, thanks Mike!
  12:57pm lloyd michigan:

Kim and Grim sound a little like Linda McCartney.
  12:59pm lloyd michigan:

DG, Sly's first five LP's in CD box set on Amazon for only $16.
  1:00pm DG:

That's great....thanks.
