Options July 22, 2017: Filling in for Michael Shelley... For every #1 hit, there's a #1 interview… part 2!

Every track played today has a corresponding interview conducted by Michael Shelley
with the artist, band members, or associates! They can all be accessed through his archives right HERE!

I assembled a show similar to this current broadcast back in April 2013, and that archive is right HERE! Because of the positive responses to that show and the wealth of insightful interviews that Michael Shelley continually conducts, I figured it was time for a part 2!

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player!

Just as Bob was wrapping up, I vowed to close the app and shave and shower, but, geez, Mike, you're so damn tuneful.

Billy Zoom- keeping punk safe for rockabilly.
  11:18am Dean:

Take the drummer from X, add the guitarist from Go-Go's, and you have 2/3 of The Eyes, an underrated LA punk (parody) band.
Avatar 11:20am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Please don't play Elvis Costello (for multiple reasons).

You can easily see why an Optical Sound fill in is so pleasing to the senses.

  Swag For Life Member 11:54am dinatekno:

Wow, Strawberry Girl - new one for me. And +1 for hoping there was a Big Star interview in there somewhere.

Frenchee -- Michael Shelley interviewed Jody Stephens from Big Star. Maybe Mr. Sin has them cued up.

joe south and the turtles are two that really turned me onto their music.

Always a pleasure to listen to Mike Sin!
  12:48pm Kerouac movie:

When you sub for Michael do you play tunes that are more in the direction of the Michael's style? Or it's just the tunes you dig that's that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm medson:

thanks again for today Mike Sin
  12:50pm howard in nyc:

I really dig this Emmit Rhodes cut, my fav from him. Great show, Mike
  Swag For Life Member 12:53pm dinatekno:

Emmitt Rhodes!!????!?!? And followed by one of my favorite Beach Boys songs (after The Lonely Sea). Such a wonderful show today Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Michael 98145:

thank you, DJ Sin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Hughie Considine:

Sheesh, he's a man and he 'splained some stuff, but that could be a slippery slope. Certainly didn't seem didactic or up his own ass to this listener. And Michael Shelley is great and he seems use the personal pronoun quite often and goes off on many a personal tangent. Seems like a double standard, @liz

Nice one, Mike!
