The Tacocat track is groovy.

The song about sleeping woke me up.

I have two radios on tuned to WFMU. I also accidentally have both apps open (but not playing). If I were a paranoid fool, I guess I could check back and forth constantly to make sure they're both trying me correct information.

That my 12:29 report.

Just read the entire Q&A - thanks, Andrew! FB seemed wonderfully relaxed/open there, presumably with them being fan-questions. I’ve found he can sometimes come off a little guarded/vague/stuffy in a “professional” interview.

Ol' Burt will be 94 in May. Great songwriter, especially with lyricist Hal David. And did anyone catch his collaboration with Elvis Costello? Both are born crooners. Elvis sometimes moonlights as a punk rocker, but in reality, he yearns to be Burt Bacharach.

My sister and her acoustic guitar playing pals learned heaps of Heart songs (and Neil Young, and all the other stuff teenagers with acoustic guitars loved in the seventies).

My teenage daughter discovered Heart on her own. I don't have any Heart records, because my sister bought them, not me, and my wife was a teenage punk who wouldn't have been caught dead with a Heart record.

Maneskin has provoked much chatter in the Danelectro bass-playing community. The dimwitted ones complain that she dances while she plays (she must not really be playing!). Most of us sharper-witted are complaining because Maneskin's visibility is contributing to the rising price of Danelectro basses.

Just yesterday I was watching the concert video of Karla DeVito onstage with Meat Loaf on the "Bat Out of Hell" tour. The song is "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" and Ms DeVito is lip-syncing to the vocals from the original album, sung by Ellen Foley. DeVito was primarily an actress and does a great job as the girlfriend in this number.
