Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Mike Sin:

Thank you all! Wish I could thank you personally! These tunes... all pretty short!
Avatar 11:17am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

this Todd song and Alex Chilton's "My Rival" are two of my favorite put down songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Frank In Queens:

Man, I haven't heard those early Rundgren solo albums in awhile. I should correct that.
  11:22am Steve:

Mike Sin Really POPS!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Frank In Queens:

From the other room, I thought this Choir track was The Resonars! I need to pick up this disc.
Avatar 11:24am SmokinJ:

Fuckin' great as usual!

Ha, rather, Clarkie!
  11:33am clarke:

  11:33am clarke:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am Frank In Queens:

Where In The World Is Todd-o-phonic Todd?
  11:34am clarke:

apparently somewhere near a computer
  11:35am Johnny Staten Island:

Wow wow wow best set on Woofmoo in a long time. Love Mike but you are killing it
  11:36am clarke:

frank - might have to abscond some of the NGFC treasury for some of these records!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Frank In Queens:

I am beyond reproach when it comes to my duties as Secretary-Treasurer of the NGFC and how dare you even lightheartedly insinuate that I am not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am Frank In Queens:

However, there are no policies regarding the acceptance of gifts from fan club members, so...
  11:40am clarke:

i don't think Norm would notice ------
just praying for some weird hillbilly novelty songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hello, sir. How's the fill-in going?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Frank In Queens:

Yeah, I have my spittoon all ready to go!
  11:41am clarke:

we might need to invest in some pro-lax for the microphone....
  11:42am Evan near Baltimore:

Great stuff again. When will you have a regular slot?
  11:42am clarke:

how near baltimore?!?
  11:45am eric from lake hiawatha:

Perfect sets to write a paper, thanks
  11:45am Tyler Hathaway:

Great show, Mike. You are an awesome utility infielder!
  11:48am Daybreak the Teacher.:

Psychedelic was a pretty good track I’ve never heard to come back to. When it started I thought it was going to be a bit of a guitar funk groove, then it turned into some 60s pop-ish rock-ish, then there was a bit of ballading going on. Nice surprises in it all jelled well. A fine pic.
  11:50am clarke:

frank - do you / will you watch playoffs no matter who is in?
  11:50am Bluesman:

Ooh I almost forgot you were filling in, but here I am listening in MONO! ❤️
  11:53am Evan near Baltimore:

clark - ~20 miles southwest of downtown in Columbia, MD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54am Frank In Queens:

clarke - I'll casually watch, I guess. I'd like to see NSH, WPG, LVK, STL do well. Screw the Eastern teams, especially those in the Metropolitan Division.
  11:55am clarke:

near the meriweather post pavillion ------
hey, notice that Frederick now has a few interesting looking record stores...ever venture??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Frank In Queens:

But I'm one free agency signing away from tuning out altogether.
  11:57am clarke:

i know little about hockey, but nashville seems to be over-achieving....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Frank In Queens:

I don't know, they made the Cup finals last year.
  11:59am clarke:

every pro sports season is WAY too long!!!!
  12:00pm clarke:

hah - shows how much i (don't) know....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm Frank In Queens:

I like the length of the NHL season. Now, MLB is another story. 162 games! I love the Mets, but I can't sit and watch baseball every single night from April to September!
  12:01pm clarke:

  12:22pm clarke:

  12:24pm clarke:

  12:26pm Bluesman:

While listening to your last spiel my 12 year old just asked me “whats an LP?”
