oh yeah, pseu, your show is great!!!!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:16pm eastvanhalen:

I have Ron Sexsmith-induced end of summer melancholy. Monkees are helping.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:16pm pgw in mntclr:

with the weather cooling down, i'm getting anxious to wear my Mike Nesmith hats
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:16pm pseu:

thanks, papis!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:23pm texas scott:

holy shit,pseu
you've made my friday nites hole again
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:23pm beth:

damn, I remember this song...would never have guessed it was vinnie b!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:23pm blackgreen13:

dang. always liked this, never knew it was Travolta... great show Pseu
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:25pm pseu:

so, your are probably much more familiar with the hit version of "never gonna fall in love again" by Eric Carmen from the Raspberries. The orchestration on the Travolta version is almost a perfect match.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:26pm pseu:

I did of course mean " YOU'RE"...sheeesh
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:27pm beth:

okay, that sounds more familiar. pretty close copy though!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:28pm blackgreen13:

you mean I don't have to see his face everytime I hear this song? relieved.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:29pm beth:

I hope at least it's the young JT face
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:29pm PiLA:

love traffic, you knew

ps. trouble at mic break?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:31pm 12539:

Psst, this is not Hole In My Shoe.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:33pm PB:

Traffic was a great band but every time I hear a flute in a rock song I think Ian Anderson. Ugh!!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:35pm john:

I still don't have anything clever to say, but oh gosh, do I love the Dennis Wilson album. Oh, and flute rawk roolz! (Just not Jethro Dull)
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:35pm pseu:

i had an expectation of what was to come out that speaker based on my erroneous playlist entry. Disc 1 not 2. Shit happens.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:36pm PB:

Is this from Pacific Ocean Blue?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:37pm texas scott:

you should switch to beef jerky
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:39pm other david:

as an irish person, i would like to apologise to all of you for the corrs
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:40pm texas scott:

dan fogelberg...no
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:41pm PB:

Do you also want to apologize for U2?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:41pm pgw in mntclr:

seals and crofts thank you
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:41pm other david:

there's only so much that one person can apologise for
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:42pm john:

If loving Dan Fogelberg is wrong, then by gad, there are no words to express just how badly one wants to be right.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:42pm eastvanhalen:

As a Canadian, I would like to apologise to you all for Dan Hill, who is not Dan Fogelberg, but who should be apologised for anyhow.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:43pm pseu:

apology not accepted.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:44pm PiLA:

you're welcome re:facebook fandom
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:45pm eastvanhalen:

Whaddaya want, penance?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:45pm texas scott:

freeform means never having to say you're sorry
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:46pm PB:

Man, I am a huge Verve fan and I've got to admit I don't know this song. What is this from?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:46pm texas scott:

N E V E R !!
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:46pm eastvanhalen:

Sounds like Bunnymen. Like it.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:49pm pseu:

PB, it's a rarity -- I wish I had a better version...
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:49pm other david:

nice, now some rollerskate skinny and whipping boy - and all will be right with the world :P
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:50pm PB:

Sounds like it is from the Storm in Heaven period. Very nice, thanks for playing it.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:51pm marinho:

is that the verve? really?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:51pm pgw in mntclr:

yes, very Storm in Heaven indeed.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:52pm G:

That not(?)-officially-realsed Verve track is on youtube, for the intrigued
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:56pm Parq:

Yes! Love this 3Dog track -- it was on "Brit Fedex'd", wasn't it?
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:58pm EzSezz:

Great to hear Three Dog Night again. Got a lot of their records through Columbia Record Club in the 70s. We're on the road to Shambala now.
  Fri. 9/16/11 9:59pm pseu:

yes, Parq!
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:02pm pgw in mntclr:

that Harper's Bizarre song kept reminding of "Kidney Bingo"
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:05pm oldindiantim:

Thanks for George Usher
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:07pm MIKETP:

  Fri. 9/16/11 10:10pm pseu:

turn your caps lock off, brutha.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:13pm texas scott:

  Fri. 9/16/11 10:16pm blackgreen13:

thank god we can't pick fonts
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:16pm miketp:

cut out of a book a picture of the band joy of cooking. how do they stand up? know nothing of them only their name which i love.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:20pm 12539:

@miketp: there's a soulful funky song by joy of cooking in Irwin's archives.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:27pm miketp:

thanks ill get on it 12539
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:30pm PiLA:

WAY too sweaty, flannel sheets-wise
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:32pm EzSezz:

why did the third base coach send Adrian Gonzalez with 2 out? He was out by a mile. Oh, am I the only one watching the Red Sox and listening with Pseu?
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:33pm G:

Are your Red Sox flannel?
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:34pm PB:

The Sox are pulling a Mets-like September swoon.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:34pm other david:

Pseu, I fear you're fighting against an unstoppable tide of flannel power.

Just submit and stop the self torment!
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:36pm blackgreen13:

resist Pseu, on that path lies madness
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:36pm EzSezz:

PB: Actually, the Red Sox are pulling a pre-2004 Red Sox September slide but I still have faith.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:37pm pseu:

thanks for your support, athletic supporters.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:45pm EzSezz:

Sox win! Pseu rules! Flannel breathes. Promise no more baseball tonight.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:47pm pseu:

  Fri. 9/16/11 10:48pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

Let's put it this way. Flannel is the exact opposite of silk.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:50pm PB:

Having grown up in Toronto when winters were real winters I can tell you that flannel shirts were where it was it. We were wearing them decades before those Seattle "grunge" people were.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:53pm eastvanhalen:

Flannel shirts, mack jackets and the like were the standard uniform of the 70s Vancouver punk scene -- mainly because most of the punks had previously been suburban rockers, methinks.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:57pm john:

Wow...Material Issue, Myracle Brah....we're one Cotton Mather track away from the holy trinity.
  Fri. 9/16/11 10:59pm other david:

hmph, 4am, time to say goodnight folks - great show pseu :)
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:12pm Andrew:

already liked it, about 15min ago ^_^
nice music tonight
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:14pm Siriusly:

I like you and I 'liked' you
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:15pm pseu:

thanks, "liker".
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:22pm blackgreen13:

this is sweet... melodic buzz, here
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:24pm PB:

To my ear they sound a lot like Travis.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:39pm G:

The ever-popular kurt to herb segue
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:40pm pseu:

you heard it here first, folks.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:41pm Andrew:

is this Herb singing? I love Herb Alpert, but have only ever heard instrumentals.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:41pm marc:

excellent song
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:43pm marc:

yea it was Herb singing, hit #1 with that song in 1968
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:44pm G:

it's a bacharach-david song that was lying around unrecorded, and they offered it to alpert
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:45pm pseu:

it's herb singing. I've added the video with The Carpenters introducing to the Facebook Pseu's Thing page.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:48pm Andrew:

I didnt know this song was Captain & Tenille.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:50pm marc:

  Fri. 9/16/11 11:57pm 12539:

Nice work as always, Pseu.
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:57pm Pete:

Like the guitar playing on this one!
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:57pm Andrew:

I've heard of Karla bonoff before, but not this song. I love these shows, always playing either stuff by people i've never heard of, stuff by people I've heard of but not heard their music & stuff by people I've heard of but not the song that gets played. It's great ^_^
(better than normal radio here)
  Fri. 9/16/11 11:58pm neil:
