Actually, that's not true. I've listened online a couple of times, but I haven't spent any real time with it. Things have been hectic.
  Sat. 2/23/19 11:08am clarke:

was going to order the new album (before all the singles came out), and they ONLY would send it out Priority Mail??
Avatar Sat. 2/23/19 11:09am Frank In Queens:

Yeah, shipping is pricey, but the key is to tack on as many $5 CDs as you can for the same shipping amount.
  Sat. 2/23/19 11:09am clarke:

i refuse - said i would find it at the store.

I assume that came from some kind of Meco 2001 inspired compilation. Mike, is this promo on vinyl? I thought that's what I heard you say at the top.

I was listening to this station today, and I managed to catch the end of the straitjackets, "Angie"at 12:44 pm. I liked the sound of it, but all I caught of the name at the time was "tusnami and amy". Luckily I was able to find this website, find the right song because I remember the host talking about getting longer paper afterwards. While I can't seem to find any song under the name "Angie" by the Straitjackets anywhere else, I listened to the bands other songs and I also like them. So thank you for having played this song, and introducing me to the Straitjackets, Michael Shelley.
