  9:02pm Daybreak and the Weekend Memories:

Welcome to the EFD shift!
  9:07pm Daybreak and the Weekend Memories:

Hello? Hello? Is anyone out there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Cmurtha:

Hello everyone! I am out there, though I may be away from the boards
  9:11pm Daybreak and the Weekend Memories:

Higher! Higher! Higher!
  9:11pm CC:

I'm here Mike but I'm not sure if we ever met?? I love the music so far..!..you must be filling in for Evan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Mike Sin:

Hi folks! Thanks for tuning in and sticking around!
  9:11pm Daybreak and the Weekend Memories:

Nice to see I’m not alone Cmurtha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Aitch:

Was in primary school for Sweet. Loved it. Garry Glitter glam was going off
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm TomDash:

Hey Mike - quite the glam-tastic kick off to the show!
  9:14pm Carmichael:

Heya, whatever is happening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm chresti:

Hello, here hear!
  9:15pm Daybreak and the Weekend Memories:

I just ate a Raspberry off the bush still kicking in my yard. Sadly it did not last as long as this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Aitch:

No shortage of variety in the 70's.
  9:18pm Steve:

Hey Mike Sin, what do you think about bringing back Streaking ?
  9:20pm CC:

My goodness..!..it certainly does get hard!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Aitch:

Like a Constant Mongrel?
  9:23pm CC:

Mmmm... reminiscent of early Hot Rod!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Aitch:

I was just thinking of all the Aussie glam stuff you missed out on, and then you played TMG! 'kin hell mate. More Vanda and Young stuff. Nice work Mike Sin.
  9:26pm John W:

Power pop, yes! Streaking, not so much...
  9:26pm PJ:

The Mighty Plod! Martin Newell's first band.
  9:27pm PJ:

The funniest rock memoir by far I've read is Newell's story of the glam days with Plod, This Little Ziggy (though I think he should've stuck with the original title, The Chicks Have Gone, The Drugs Were Dodgy, and We Never Did Get the Bastard Loot.)
  9:32pm Carmichael:

Oh, Mike Sin, jaysis. Loved the devil music.
  9:32pm CC:

That last song kind of reminded me of a cross between Deep Purple Uriah Heep and Atomic Rooster... maybe with a little Blood Rock thrown in?
  9:35pm Carmichael:

Yep, buy stuff from the bargain bin by the look of the cover. Has never failed me.
  9:39pm Carmichael:

I love Martin Newell. Cleaners From Venus, specifically, but hi solo stuff is wonderful pop.
  9:40pm Carmichael:

  9:41pm CC:

Mmmm... Graham Parker comes to mind...
  9:41pm PJ:

I've never heard Sports before, but this reminds of a cross between Graham Parker and Joe Jackson
  9:42pm PJ:

CC beat me to it
  9:44pm Steve:

I believe The Sports were from Australia, PJ
  9:45pm CC:

PJ... I don't think I've ever heard Mike's show before but he's playing some damn good shiaaatt!!!
  9:47pm kevlicki:

Really enjoying the show!
  9:48pm PJ:

@CC, I agree, he brings the good stuff (and a lot of it I've never heard before)
  9:48pm CC:

Not one throw away song in the last 50 minutes..!.. that's great!!!!
  10:00pm CC:

Oh man..!.. this is the very first song I ever learned how to play on guitar!!!
  10:00pm Carmichael:

The 1st song I learned to play on guitar. Good cover.
  10:01pm Carmichael:

  10:06pm CC:

I think Mike must be putting out Quantum ESP Vibes or something???hehehe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Doug in JC:

Mike Sin! Welcome back
  10:10pm CC:

Actually... I think we all must just be trippin..!..yep...thats gotta be 'it'!!!
  10:11pm Marc15:

Bankers? Disgruntled Bankers?
  10:13pm Marc15:

Why would bankers be disgruntled? Bankers control the World
  10:15pm CC:

I remember John Lennon saying that Leonardo DaVinci said you get what you project!!!
Avatar 10:18pm David Shortell:

Successful Failures are playing the Asbury Hotel tonight.
  10:19pm kevlicki:

That successful failures melody triggered an old crooked fingers song in my head
Avatar 10:20pm David Shortell:

--and the Human Village Brewing Company in Pitman on Friday!
  10:27pm seth from muddy creek:

Oh heck yeah. Black Hollies. True Jersey Blood!
  10:28pm CC:

Great sound quality!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Bootsie:

Haven't had a chance to check in, but definitely enjoying the show! When you said favorite "fall" band from NJ, though I was thinking Misfits for sure. _Walk Among Us_ is my ultimate fall LP.
  10:30pm seth from muddy creek:

Next play some Rye Coalition and you’d have some serious Jersey Moejoe
  10:30pm Marc15:

“Whispers Beneath The Willows” By The Black Hollies was released on March 11, 2008
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Cmurtha:
