Oh.. Just great. Busy day today.

Produced the most, and best music of the last 20 years, or longer. Best track record, period!
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:26am jfreeman:

Dear Mike - please play "She's an Angel" as long as we're having this big TMBG love fest!

Not necessarily a request! Favorite TMBG track: Birdhouse in Your Soul
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:50am Marc:

I was first introduced to They Might Be Giants when I heard "Birdhouse In Your Soul" on 92.7 WDRE in the early 1990s. I was hooked after that.
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:51am geokopp:

Wow, great service!! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/10/15 11:52am Parq:

Frank O'Toole was my introduction to Giants. I still have their 1988 live appearance on his show on cassette. Of course, I don't have a working cassette deck ...
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:53am Alex B:

Another big request for She's an Angel!! And would love an update on what's happening with Robin "Goldie" Goldwasser!
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:56am geokopp:

Michael, I'd like to know which John "got kicked in the head at the stone pony". A probing question for your interview.
Avatar Sat. 1/10/15 11:56am SmokinJ:

So fine! :)
  Sat. 1/10/15 11:56am Alex B:

Also, huge shout out to one of my top-ten all-time favorite songs - massively underrated: Linnell's "South Carolina"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/10/15 11:57am Parq:

Ditto on Goldie. I had the pleasure of meeting her once at a Laura Cantrell gig.
Avatar Sat. 1/10/15 12:13pm Sem Chumbo:

Thanks, MS, always wanted to hear these guys. No *might* about it, these guys are the real deal, upon whose shoulders others got a view of the way ahead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/10/15 12:22pm Parq:

I guess the verse about the Prez in "Number Three" works no matter who's the POTUS, but I think it's worth noting that the song was released during the Reagan administration.
  Sat. 1/10/15 12:23pm argh:

these guys should cover - "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard"
Avatar Sat. 1/10/15 12:24pm Dr. Goot:

This is good fun, thanks!
  Sat. 1/10/15 12:30pm Marc:

Your remake of "Istanbul was Constantinople" is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/10/15 12:36pm Parq:

Oh, and that was the best version of "Dr. Worm" I've ever heard.
  Sat. 1/10/15 12:42pm Pat. James Longo:

I gave Tom and Glen tapes from FMU and NYU appearances that helped get them signed to Bar None and I like them on radio as much as I did back then. Thanks for having them on.

Plus you get to see Ed Norton's erection.
