Hi Charlie - Love your show and it's cool that we can now leave comments here. Am I really the first to use this?
  5:45pm Trish:

I say. "Good morning, Monday."
A good morning, this Monday.. today.
  6:31pm Mike Cavilla:


Love the mix, Lee Wiley plus Russ Morgan plus modern stuff, plus off-beat stuff. Keep it up and I'll keep listening for many more 2 years!

  9:16pm C. Erroll Modray:

Loved the Beckett. Was trying to figure out what it was, but I was thinking way too small. This is what FMU is all about.
  10:46pm Chuck:

I dug the Steeleye Span...You wouldn't happen to have 'Baker Street Muse' by Tull handy would ya???...:)...Keep up the good work!!!...Cheerz!!...:)O(:
