"Don't the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time" might be one of the best Jerry Lee Lewis songs not written or recorded by Jerry Lee.

there is no one like Jerry Lee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm van chinski:

This has been a great show, really like the interviews and ad spots woven in. Never thought I'd enjoy a Mickey Gilley show, all I knew was he owned Gilley's and had those family connections. It's always fascinating to hear a WFMU appreciation/reassessment like this. Great radio, Dave.
Avatar 🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Candy-O'67:

Great tribute to Mikey Gilley, Dave! I grew up about 20 minutes from Pasadena in Seabrook and was 12 when Urban Cowboy came out. Went to Gilley's with my parents and rode the bull - haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm van chinski:

This song pushes a lot of the right buttons. Nice.

Can those Gilley’s electric man cave signs be converted to accommodate 220 volt output?? Also, do you ship to Guam?
  Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Bruce S.:

Excellent Show, Great Tribute, thanks Dave
