Obits, O boy!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:14pm Adam in Portland:

I'm an avid follower of Rick Froberg's musical and graphic creations. Can't wait to hear Obits rockin' it live on the inestimably vital Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:15pm Adam in Portland:

Graphic design, graphic language, graphic (anything.) hahaha...
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:17pm Carmichael:

Hi Terre. Here for duration today, and looking forward to the live set.
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:18pm Adam in Portland:

Hey, Carmichael, great to see you here for the blessed noise.
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:20pm Handsome Harry:

Great start to the show. Loving the Drive Like Jehu over here in Yonkers.
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:21pm Lucas:

HI everyone! great set Terre T!!!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:22pm Adam in Portland:

Hey, Lucas!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:24pm Lucas:

Hi Adam!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:31pm Lucas:

Great song!!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:32pm Johnny Blue Jeans:

  Sat. 6/4/11 3:36pm Fake Kinkade:

I'm rockin' hard! I'm ready for the Obits! I just whipped it out at Petco and got thrown out of the store!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:38pm Petco:

We only do obedience training for *animal* animals.
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:46pm fred:

12XU is such a great song
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:53pm Fake Kinkade:

I love that Bass Drum of Death!

Petco, this Cherry show gets me really excited. It couldn't be helped!
  Sat. 6/4/11 3:54pm Petco:

Nice doggie! [pats Kinkade's head]
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:00pm fred:

Terre, I'm rarely around to hear your show live and comment, but yours was my gateway show to the station, so you changed my life.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:04pm David Shortell:

I've heard the Nuggets box set before, yet only now do I realize that the Kenny and the Kasuals song steals the Kinks' "Come On Now" riff!
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:07pm Carmichael:

Same with me, Fred. It's a rare Saturday when I'm at my computer here at the Casa Shenandoah.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:10pm eyenoise:

"Dancer Equired" is a mangling of "(Atten)dance Required". Look closely at the LP cover.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:14pm fred:

Hey Carmichael, maybe you should start having bands around at that Casa of yours. I wouldn't cross an ocean to attend; but that could make for an easier commute back for you.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:26pm Joltz:

@David Shortell...Yes, not only did Kenny and the Kasuals steal the "Come On Now" riff, so did the 13th Floor Elevators, on "Tried To Hide."
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:30pm Carmichael:

It's raining here, Fred, so no jamming. Normally by June, it's about 90, and the amps and kit are on the back porch. But the beer's flowing freely anyway.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:30pm keith:

when is the times new viking live set going to air?
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:40pm Lucas:

Yeah Psychedelic Horseshit is great!!!
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:42pm fred:

IIt's raining around here too, but we dodged a bullet as the outdoors festival was last week.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:46pm Terre T:

Hey everyone! Thanks for listening and all the really nice comments!

@Keith, The Vikings live set will be sometime in June.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:52pm keith:

Thx Terre! Saw them this past Thursday in Chapel Hill and they were awesome!
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:54pm Carmichael:

OK, I loved that Grip Weeds track. Nice male/female harmonies.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:54pm andreasheinz:

cool show
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:54pm Johnny Bluejeans:

Obits soon! This is gonna be awesome! #justifiedhyperbole
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:54pm Carmichael:

And Aka sounds a lot like King Khan.
  Sat. 6/4/11 4:55pm The Internets:

We have "Shake Me" as the track title! The Indonesian James Brown!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:07pm Carmichael:

Mic volume waaaay up please!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:08pm Carmichael:

Sounded better at the end of the talking. Excellent band!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:12pm Mickey Bagoosh:

These Obits sound great. That's pretty cool considering they ain't got no hot broad in the band. I like this tune Beggin' Dawgs.
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:15pm Stevel:

Stellar show today. Thanks
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:19pm Cheri Pi:

  Sat. 6/4/11 5:26pm Fake Kinkade:

  Sat. 6/4/11 5:33pm Jeremy:

Amazing set. That Kids cover was boss.
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:37pm andreasheinz:

Hothohothot Hot!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:38pm Christina:

Terre, can you ask those guys if there will be any NYC dates soon!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:42pm rando cowrissian:

Come on, name some names!
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:45pm andreasheinz:

This show equals BBC's John Peel of the 90s.
  Sat. 6/4/11 5:54pm Carmichael:

Terre, thanks for all the great music! See you next Saturday!
