Sat. 7/19/14 11:02am
good morning, got anything for a hangover?
Sat. 7/19/14 11:03am
@bobdoesthings: Guinness. No matter the ailment, it's the cure
Sat. 7/19/14 11:04am
here I am rolling up something instead... hmm I'm gonna stick with my plan for now.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:05am
water, aspirin, loud music
Sat. 7/19/14 11:07am
You need a Full English Breakfast..
Sat. 7/19/14 11:08am
@martin.. bacon, that's a great idea.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:08am
Sat. 7/19/14 11:08am
maybe some Irn-Bru
Sat. 7/19/14 11:09am
Sat. 7/19/14 11:10am
Baby - as a professional can you tell us what the cure for a hangover is?
Sat. 7/19/14 11:12am
Got one myself. Fresh Grapefuit, and V8 Juice.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:13am
yuck and double yuck.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:19am
Just to be clear, do we mix the grapefruit juice and V8, or drink separately?
Sat. 7/19/14 11:20am
Baby. The Maharishi called. He wants to talk to you.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:20am
Oh, I see, the actual grapefruit, not grapefruit juice.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:21am
Chicory Tip's "Son Of My Father" was huge in the UK in the early 70s. I've never heard anything else by them before and thought they were one hit wonders.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:21am
worst hangover of my life was in Spain - ginger ale was helpful
Sat. 7/19/14 11:21am
No no. I thought was a bit vague. Fresh, whole GF and a glass of V8
Sat. 7/19/14 11:23am
Is anybody else curious (or worry) when regular listener/commenters seem to disappear?
For example, where is listener Annie? regards if you are out there :)
Sat. 7/19/14 11:25am
@marmalade kitty - I, quite frankly, am relieved. It's frightening how some commenters seem to never leave. I like to take a deep breath of relief and smile and think of them out there.. in the real big world.. just doing their own thing in their own time...
Sat. 7/19/14 11:26am
bob; Of course!
Sat. 7/19/14 11:27am
Hey Marmalade Kitty---Annie just recently popped up on Trouble's playlist
Sat. 7/19/14 11:29am
This NRBQ kinda sounds like...Michael Shelley.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:36am
I have seen the "fannies" on many occasions.. great live band that keeps on gowing and growing
Sat. 7/19/14 11:38am
Sat. 7/19/14 11:47am
Juke Joint Jonny:
Seconded! Little Hands super number one hit material
Sat. 7/19/14 11:51am
I'm still looking forward to the worst hangover of my life.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:55am
@uncle - that's a good way to look at it.
Sat. 7/19/14 11:57am
is this the DC-based Iron Cross?
Sat. 7/19/14 12:02pm
Sat. 7/19/14 12:03pm
I think they're from the UK
Sat. 7/19/14 12:11pm
Kitty, I'm in touch with Annie. She doesn't listen much -- I don't know whether that's by choice or necessity. The bottom kind of fell out of her life in the northeast a few years ago, and now she lives in Ashville NC. She is doing okay and seems content.
Sat. 7/19/14 12:17pm
I like this Amy Rigby bunches,
Sat. 7/19/14 12:19pm
mike E. Flood:
Worked in a pizza joint that played a best of Louie Prima. 12 hour shifts 6 days a week. We all had Stockholm syndrome at first we hated it then you start singing along....
Sat. 7/19/14 12:20pm
Sat. 7/19/14 12:32pm
I love this Matthew Sweet record, not a bad cut on it!
Sat. 7/19/14 12:34pm
AGREE - what an album!
Sat. 7/19/14 12:37pm
I've seen both of Prima's movies — Twist All Night and Hey Boy! Hey Girl! And I'm surprised as what an incredibly stiff actor Prima is, especially considering how alive and charismatic he is onstage and on recordings. Even Keely doing her "wooden Indian" schtick comes off more animated. Sam acquits himself well, as always!
Sat. 7/19/14 12:38pm
Re: Matthew Sweet - Getting Quine, Lloyd and Julian to do the guitars on the album was genius.
Sat. 7/19/14 12:40pm
I saw Sweet play live with those guys a few times and what struck me is that he really tried hard not to be a power-popper. He wanted to be this rocker and live, it tended to bury those melodic songs.
Sat. 7/19/14 12:44pm
but it worked live, I thought
Sat. 7/19/14 12:48pm
Sat. 7/19/14 12:48pm
James in ATL:
Nice show Michael. Thanks!
Sat. 7/19/14 12:49pm
James - it is truly my pleasure
Sat. 7/19/14 12:50pm
James in ATL:
Really looking forward to Muff's Whoop Dee Doo release on July 29.
Sat. 7/19/14 12:51pm
Love this song
Sat. 7/19/14 12:58pm
Really enjoying the show today!
Sat. 7/19/14 1:01pm
TOO FUNNY !! and Great show
Sat. 7/19/14 6:29pm
Agreed on the Michael Shelley-ness of that NRBQ song. My wife completely unprompted asked if it was a Michael Shelley song (meaning performed and/or written) when it was on the show a couple of weeks ago!
