Last week, The Baby and Rex show, was as good as radio gets. Period. You deserve the right to spin nothing but Kenny Wayne Shepard and 3 Doors Down this week, Mike. We all know you won't. It's #1 Hits, all the time, for all time. Viva The Micheal Shelley show, Viva WFMU!! And good morning to all. Baby.

Hey Mike - great sounds 2day & a great interview last week with Lloyd Price. Hooked on a Feeling originally done by B.J. Thomas, a #5 Billboard hit in ‘69. Covered by Jonathan King (uk) and Blue Swede (in ‘74). Wiki makes no mention of the Lloyd Price version. Enjoying 2days interview too.
