And now it's time for "Manscaping With Mike"!
  1:00pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Fab opening Mike! Glad to have you on the radio today.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Gaylord Fields:

Mike and Matt are where it's at!
  1:04pm clarke:

most revealing Del McC nugget: he ENJOYS mowing the lawn!!
  1:05pm clarke:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@clarke: That hits me right in my bald spot!
  1:07pm clarke:

there goes the theme -----
frank - i guess in my non-hockey way i am pulling for winnipeg?? shoot me down, if you like....
Avatar 1:08pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Off to a rip-roaring start!
  1:11pm clarke:

todd - sorry have to miss (most of) your show AGAIN! gotta do work stuff, later...boo!!!
  1:12pm clarke:

i will one day get rid of my dumbphone and be able to use some type of app like frank does....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Mike Sin:

Hey Todd, Gaylord, clarke, Jeff and Frankie Sideburns! Get the ragu ready
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Frank In Queens:

I like Winnipeg, but I think I like Vegas more. I like the absurdity of an expansion team winning the Cup. But really, anyone but the Caps at this point.
  1:13pm clarke:

nice stuff - i like what you've done here!!
Avatar 1:13pm Marc Francis:

Yes! Howdy Mike Sin!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Frank In Queens:

Mike, we were literally talking about Sunday pasta when you typed that.

Hello All!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Vegas looks really, really good in these playoffs. Scary good. Hellebuyck? Buck no.
  1:14pm clarke:

i can't back a team from vegas - you hear this Raiders?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Frank In Queens:

Vegas has looked good all season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Leave it to WFMU to have 95% more hockey talk in 10 minutes than WFAN has all season.
  1:19pm clarke:

in place of Rex's featured star i submit to ya'll: Nancy Guild (pronounced like Wild) who is stunning in the raymond chandler flick "The Brasher Doubloon" and an abbot and costello flick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Frank In Queens:

@Jeff, especially that Francesa is back...
  1:22pm clarke:

fantastic Vox!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Frank In Queens:

Matt, stop living so hard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Richard.Whig:

Whig out West checking in!
  1:26pm clarke:

trade-offs = cool
Avatar 1:26pm Nutley Sam:

@Matt who produced that Zephyrs track?
Avatar 1:30pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Nutley Sam: Shel Talmy!
Avatar 1:31pm Nutley Sam:

@Todd, I thought so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Richard.Whig:

Mike and Matt....the Car Talk version of Record Talk!! Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm in British beat grouop heaven with this spin 'n chat! This M&M melts in your ears, not in your hands!
Avatar 1:37pm Nutley Sam:

Phil Schapp is on the line -- he says you guys talk too much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Mike Sin:

Chat and Chew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Richard.Whig:

Less tracking...more yakkin'!
  1:40pm longish:

Nobody enjoys hearing you guys blather than yourselves. I need Rex!
  1:41pm McGreivey:

+1 for the Phil Shaap comment. Not that there's anything wrong with umm Phil Shaap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Richard.Whig:

I disagree ^. I enjoy the banter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Gaylord Fields:

@Nutley Sam: And knowing Phil Schaap, he's probably still on the line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

I hear "Don't Let me Down" on this tune.
Avatar 1:43pm Nutley Sam:

People who know Nutley Sam know he was only teasing. Let's all calm down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Gaylord Fields:

@longish: I presume you skipped all stated opinions other than your own.
  1:44pm DG:

OMG! This Rockin' Horse song is totally "Don't Let Me Down"---certainly "inspired" by it, musically & vocally (even if it doesn't copy the tune, exactly). Could be a Rutles tune....or one of those Utopia tracks from "Deface the Music."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Philthy woman:

Love that Rockin Horse song!
  1:48pm clarke:

guys sittin' around talkin' about records - I LIKE IT!!
  1:48pm clarke:

i'll buy some of that!
  1:54pm clarke:

i DID buy some of that, when i pledged to 'fmu!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Mike Sin:

Thanks Clarke!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@clarke: That's because you get what WFMU is all about and what exactly you support when you give! Thanks, old friend!
  1:57pm Tim from LH:

Optical Sounds, my favorite fill-in show!
  1:59pm clarke:

well, gaylord - i always meant to say that that time shelley had The World's Greatest Music Experts segment on his show was one of my fave pieces of radio!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Frank In Queens:

This show has been great so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Frank In Queens:

And still an hour to go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Fuzzy:

  2:03pm clarke:

don't mention 'deeds' around frank!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm ChrisB.:

There's a great Everlys Warner Archive compilation. 2 CD.
  2:03pm egould310:

Digging the tunes, fellas. Sounds like you guys are having fun. I’m having fun listening. Thank you!!
  2:04pm clarke:

Liepzig deeds done dirt cheap!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Frank In Queens:

Oh, those deeds are getting done alright....
  2:06pm KRS:

Totally enjoying this show...excellent choice of tunes and enjoying your explanation and history of them! Thank you, Fred, for turning me on to this station which I am able to live stream!
  2:06pm frenchee:

Love you two gents geekin' out!
  2:06pm clarke:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Another resaon I love you guys: You pronounce "Kirkbys" correctly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Feelin' mighty childish this afternoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Richard.Whig:

This bee mighty!!
  2:10pm frenchee:

these guys should be renamed the sharps & flats!
  2:12pm clarke:

TOTALLY optical!!!!
  2:13pm Marc15:

A guy after my own heart.
  2:13pm clarke:

gosh i just put away my winter clothes -- cold in here!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Frank In Queens:

Hollies are NEVER a bad choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Richard.Whig:

"I'd rather be out with the boys"......OUCH!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc15: I believe that when Jagger and Oldham (!) wrote this (as the more blatant "I'd Much Rather Be With the Boys"), the homophile aspect you allude to was intended.
  2:18pm clarke:

unfortunatey, got to head out to do a bit of work work. later gator(s)!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Mike Sin:

See ya later Clarke! -MC

Merci mon ami Richard Whig
  2:25pm KRS:

BTW the interview broadcast earlier today that Michael Shelley did with Del McCoury was a gem. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Matt Clarke:

Yeah! Michael Shelley always has the best interviews
  2:33pm ironweed:

Leesburg FL checking in
  2:40pm Marc15:

@Gaylord Fields: Really? It was intended?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc15: I remember reading years ago that it was written with their pal the openly gay producer Bob Crewe in mind. (And Mike is correct, it was Richards-Oldham; I stand corrected).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc15: Here's confirmation, straight from the horse's mouth: steve-marcus.blogspot.com...
  2:49pm DG:

Wow, have always wanted to hear this Doris Troy track---written by her & G. Harrison (there are more collaborations on this album, inc. 2 by George, Ringo, Troy & Stephen Stills)...that also sounds like Billy Preston on electric piano. Don't know why this wasn't a hit.
  2:55pm Marc15:

Thank you for the information Gaylord! It is much appreciated!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@Marc15: I like to use my music geekery for niceness instead of evil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Richard.Whig:

Glynis says THANKs for the Raiders!
  2:59pm Marc15:

@Gaylord Fields: I understand. Thank you again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks, Mike and Matt! The show warmed this '60s Anglophile's heart!
