this is a great show- like all of Charlie's programs. aside from physical intimidation or restraint, how can we bring back Charlie for at least weekly WFMU shows?
  11:22am Parq:

This cheery pop set (starting with Jason F) is the perfect antidote to this damp fall morning.
  11:26am Parq:

May I please add that "Casiotone for the Painfully Alone" is one of my favorite band names -- though it takes a back seat, as do all others, to "To Live and Shave In LA".
  11:34am Doug S.:

I'm so glad you announced it Charlie. Go Charlie Go!
