  6:02pm Michael:

Hi Bill! Guardian Singles are good.

Welcome Billups! Looking forward to hearing what you’ve got for us.
  6:03pm Billups Allen:

I saw them at the virtual Gonerfest. They were great.
Thier album was re-released on Trouble in Mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Daisy Lacy:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Candy-O'67:

Man, this Pretty song is such a good fuzz groover!!!!❤️🍄🙌
  6:12pm Billups Allen:

Vodka Collins was an early 70s Japanese power pop band. The LP is hard to find. I hope it'll get reissued again. But it;s solid all the way through if you get a chance to check it out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, Daisy! I didn't see your comment!!
  6:13pm Billups Allen:

Yea, How do you get that much fuzz in one place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Daisy Lacy:

Candy-O’67 you know what’s up!
  6:15pm mister chen:

Really like this song!
  6:16pm Billups Allen:

Hey, there's Mr. Chen!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Candy-O'67:

True, Billups!
  6:16pm Billups Allen:

I love that guy!!!
  6:18pm Billups Allen:

This song is kind of a creeper. I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Candy-O'67:

I love the rumble guitar

Me, too, Daisy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Daisy Lacy:

It’s on Le beat bespoke 7
  6:20pm Billups Allen:

This song has held me up for years.
  6:20pm Billups Allen:

A guy brought the Dan Nix single in recently, but just to play. It was pretty scratchy too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Candy-O'67:

I need to get some of those. Where's the best place to find them, Daisy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Daisy Lacy:

I think probably ordering them from the label is the best bet-they have sales a few times a year. Only problem is shipping from the uk is eek this is the website www.newuntouchables.com...
  6:23pm Billups Allen:

What's going on in Sunset Park? Mr. C
  6:24pm Frank In Queens:

I really like the mix you’ve got going Billups.
  6:24pm Michael:

I love this - actually I haven't heard anything I don't like
  6:24pm Billups Allen:

Yea, they just did that weird Brexit thing now too. Shipping from England is aweful.
  6:24pm Billups Allen:

Thank you Frank. I love sharing records with people.
  6:25pm Billups Allen:

Thank you Michael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Candy-O'67:

Thx so much, Daisy!!
  6:27pm mister chen:

I still have one of the Gorilla cassettes you sent me.nthey are great. Our kid makes me play it all the time when we look for parking.
  6:28pm Billups Allen:

THat's awesome. When I saw them they were selling tapes and I thought about your station wagon. How long have you had your station wagon?
  6:29pm Frank In Queens:

This Drop In is going to cost me a lot of money…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, Frank!!
  6:30pm Billups Allen:

Remember: Home Taping is Killing Music.
  6:31pm Frank In Queens:

Here we go! Nothing wrong with playing the hits every now and then.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Sounding great Billups!
  6:34pm Billups Allen:

Thank you Glynis GirlGroupGirl. I'm having fun typing with all of you.
  6:36pm Billups Allen:

This is fun. I did public radio at KXCI in Tucson ages ago, but my show was on so late I never got phone calls. One night a guy called to tell me he left coffee in the building and scared me to death setting off the alarm. I don't know how he got in the building.
  6:37pm Michael:

Oh man - that's kinda creepy
  6:38pm Billups Allen:

This is another current band I like a lot: The Ar-Kaics. This is from their recent live album.
