Baby. Happy Happy New Year. Thanks from all of us out here in radio-land for another fantastic year of service to good taste, discovery, and insight. Only a few of us know all the work that goes into every one of your shows. I know that fact doesn't matter to you. It does matter to us. Keep doing what you are doing. It's a public service that is a blessing. Love, Baby..

Love that New Year's tradition. I am curious. Have the nachos ingredients evolved over the years, Michael, or do you make the same classic kind every year?

Impeach Trump on day 1
Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 11:45am dk50b:

He's gotta commit an impeachable offense after he's sworn in. Give him a week, there should be plenty to chose from. And a bigger reason our health care costs are highest with worst results is lack of any price controls on pharmaceuticals. That's why Canadian prices are so much less for the same meds.

Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 11:53am Pedro G.:

The Michael Shelley Show is the best reason to get up on Saturday morning. And if you don't like what he says, don't listen.

AND Mike's advice saved me $500, passing on the VIP experience for the Brian Wilson show. It would have been an expensive few minutes of awkwardness.

Thanks Mike! And Happy 2017 even if it means watching a hateful orange toddler and his even more dangerous pals attempt to destroy our country. Cesspools don't drain swamps. Resist beginning Jan. 20.

As a music composer ...When it come to the plagiarism issue I'm of the school of thought there are only so many chords .So I tend to cut people a lot of slack

And I am also of the opinion that the Uruguayan Beatles are severely underrated

I get the similarity to Don't Let Me Down but it also sounds to me like the verse part of Suspicion by Elvis
