morning Michael - so did Mista Tilbrook appear "sick" when you saw him on Thursday? That should indicate whether or not he will call in today - you don't sound too confident he will.

  Sat. 9/27/14 12:50pm dave:

i know you'r a huge fan mike, i don't mean to troll...

when i hear them i picture all the elements of pop music - lyrics, melody, chord changes - being fed into a computer and the result is "fountains of wayne"

that's what i meant by "soulless"
Avatar    Sat. 9/27/14 12:55pm Michael Shelley:

Dave - no sweat - there's room for dissent! I think their songs come from a good place - plus the albums are full of less poppy, more heartfelt songs - that I dont play on the radio so often - but I hear what you're saying
     Sat. 9/27/14 12:57pm James in ATL:

Disagree completely about FOW being soulless. Well stated Michael.
