good morning, michael!
Sat. 7/6/13 11:04am
I am completely in love with Donnie and Joe Emerson after last week's interview. This song is so joyful and haunting at the same time. Amazing stuff.
Sat. 7/6/13 11:10am
I am requesting a rain song, some suggestions below as we have had 10" of rain last few weeks breaking the June record of 4" down here in dreary ole Floriduh
Rain on the Roof" by Lovin' Spoonful
"One More Rainy Day" by Deep Purple
"Rainy Days and Mondays" by The Carpenters
"Box of Rain" by Grateful Dead

Green Pajamas - Walking In The Rain
Sat. 7/6/13 11:43am
speakin of wearing pajama's at Walmart:

Sat. 7/6/13 12:01pm
Good morning, Michael. Hey, have you heard the Numero Group's Buttons compilation? Sounds like a bunch of Cheap Trick stuff, most pretty good!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:03pm
JMD - agree
Sat. 7/6/13 12:05pm
Hondells was a Gary Usher studio concoction. I think that Richie Burns was one of the session singers, whom they later sent on the road to lead the touring version of the group. Obviously he's not on this instrumental...
Sat. 7/6/13 12:10pm
an interesting lp - "directed by" Nick Venet, produced by "DEN-VET Productions", liner notes by Roger Christian, Some of the songs by Richie Polodor - who made very similar instrumentals as The Pacific Surfers, and played w/ Sandy Nelson
Sat. 7/6/13 12:23pm
Greg from Bloomfield:
"Apple Doldrums". Sounds like an obscure Guided By Voices EP...
Sat. 7/6/13 12:24pm
Show sounding great Michael!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:25pm
Next play "Lost In My World" by the Outsiders. It sounds NOTHING LIKE "Time Won't Let Me"!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:26pm
Polodor also produced most of the Three Dog Night hits and Im sure many others. sounds like a candidate for a No. 1 Hit Interview!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:28pm
Outsiders "Backwards & Upside-down" as well
Sat. 7/6/13 12:30pm
Joe B: Podolor is a genius!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:33pm
Slept late. Just now tuning in. I'll catch the podcast at work Monday.

Chris in TX via RI:
Morning Michael and folks. I overslept a bit.
Sat. 7/6/13 12:37pm
wow, how was that version of Something Stupid not a single!
Sat. 7/6/13 12:37pm
I'd have Q-tips too, and they'd have to be wooden-stick ones. None of that cardboard sh*t.
Sat. 7/6/13 12:38pm
I don't think i've heard that before
Sat. 7/6/13 12:48pm
Surfdog - next songs for you
Sat. 7/6/13 12:51pm
I think the Ramones did a better job of covering CCR. This ain't bad, though.
Sat. 7/6/13 12:57pm
Michael Shelley and Vinny Barbarino?
Sat. 7/6/13 12:57pm

It doesn't get any better than this. Congrats
on finding the vault that this stuff was stored in.
Sat. 7/6/13 5:22pm
Are these Gay torch songs or is it my imagination?
Sun. 7/7/13 10:51pm
Totally agree on the Beatles' Help! comment during the show! If there's such a thing as an underrated Beatles album, that's it (likely due to the US chop job at the time, it's a movie soundtrack, etc.)
