One day, you should do an all-Sally-Struthers opening name montage.
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:06am JJ Moth:

Morning Michael, i look forward to your many versions of Putty in your hands each week. Keep em coming.
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:08am Robert:

"One week"? I guess it doesn't count until your show rolls aroung again, huh?
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:21am Robert:

I'm sure they appreciate the correction.
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:30am Jim Teacher:

'Incredibly Bad' = incredibly awesome
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:42am drr:

That was very "meta."
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:43am JJ Moth:

All interviews should end with a phone slamming down.
  Sat. 2/26/11 11:49am (not that) scott williams:

My son - 5 years old in 2 weeks - said the Left Banke "sounded like someone trying to imitate the Beatles".
  Sat. 2/26/11 12:00pm BigJay:

Send the Finn to the sharks .
  Sat. 2/26/11 12:37pm Mike Doughty:

Michael! DUDE! So stoked you played my cover of "Looks." Somebody left a vinyl copy of "Marty Thau's 2x5" (which had the Student Teachers' original version) anonymously onstage for me last month. PS: it's DOE-tee, but that's because my ancestors in Louisiana pronounce the Irish name DOW-tee incorrectly. No idea why. So I don't stress the pronunciation.

Again, man, thanks!
  Sat. 2/26/11 12:40pm Dale from North Dakota:

Hey Michael, came over to see the artwork, and wow! Labour of Lust is finally being reissued! That's fantastic news, thanks for the link. Great show today, as well!
  Sat. 2/26/11 12:49pm drr:

Have you seen that YouTube video of Percy Mayfield making white russians at a house party while singing Hit The Road Jack?
  Sat. 2/26/11 12:50pm drr:

Here it is: http://www.davidrhoden.com/eecore/index.php/hit_the_road_jack/

Absolutely loved that version of "Baby Just Cares", one of my favorite songs, with some great guitar work subbing for the usual piano. Interesting that he opted not to re-gender the celeb references.
  Sun. 2/27/11 11:15am peter:

Michael, is "Lazy Susan" an imitation of the Everlies, or an off-label excursion?
  Sun. 2/27/11 3:54pm Michael:
