So, what's the groundhog situation? Did he see his shadow?
Avatar 11:11am Michael Shelley:

Good question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am G:

Punxatawney Phil supposedly said early spring
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am G:

ditto Staten Island Chuck. fwiw, ymmv
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am G:

not a tough call, there really hasn't been much hardcore winter this year.
Avatar 11:15am glenn:

wiarton willy says early spring as well. nice to know our groundhog brethren can agree.
  11:15am Jimmy Wipper:

Eastern Shore of Virginia, I'd say! ;)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Parq:

Never knew the Beach Men did that take on Frost.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am G:

that's powerpop alright.
  11:33am Jimmy Wipper:

G, I was kidding around. I'd rather stay here in Norfolk, Virginia, California on my mind!
  11:33am Phelger Nank:

What LP is the Beach Boys' cut from?
Avatar 11:35am Michael Shelley:

"Carl & The Passions: So Tough"
Avatar 11:35am Philo Gristle:

@Phelger Carl and the Passions, 1972. Didn't know, cheated. Hello!
  11:37am seang:

Hi Michael. Who was that California singer/songwriter surfer dude who put out one perfect album? He had a song called I think "Goin native"? I can't find it in the archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am G:

Norfolk is cool, just over the bridge/tunnel. I have a gf from there who moved to NY
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am G:

Major v. minor. That's a major difference :)
  11:47am ?:

Adult v. minor. That's a major difference!

QUESTIONS for Paul Collins?
Post 'em here
  11:50am paul:

Who does he listen to today?
Avatar 11:50am glenn:

does anybody ever mistake him for phil collins?
  11:57am madi:

Just had to say I LOVE YOU PAUL
10,000 listens and counting.
  11:58am oba:

How was the The Two Beats Hearting As One Tour that Paul Collins Beat did with the English Beat? And did the two groups "jam" together on any songs?
And has Paul ever jammed with or otherwise communed with Blondie/Deb Harry?
And what was it like appearing on American Bandstand, what was Dick Clark like?
Avatar 11:59am glenn:

a tom collins is gin, lemon juice, sugar and soda water. what would a paul collins be?
  11:59am oba:

oh, and what were Paul's first, formative concerts that he saw as a kid?
  11:59am drewo:

What is the makeup of his live audience today? Older folks? Younger folks? A mix? Does the audience makeup vary in different countries? Thanks!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Mike East:

Great interview michael
  12:04pm Connie T. Empress:

What a great interview: I am such a power pop die hard: infectuous, abandonded and innocent with a slyness: keep it coming!
Avatar 12:04pm pierre:

the sweet sweet sound of Power Pop !

Bonjour Michael Shelley and folks
  12:08pm Phelger Nank:

@ Mike & Philo

Stupid me...I have Carl & the P's, on 2 formats, but the title didn't sound familiar...need to make a fresh fruit & veg jucie w/ vitamins/herb supplements & a few espresso shots thrown in...
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Mike East:

I just downed a delicious fresh juice. No supplements or espresso tho
  12:13pm SG:

I like everything I hear by Geraint Watkins!

Avatar 12:25pm Michael Shelley:

Ive tried to track Mark Eric down - but no luck so far. Anyone out there have a lead?
  12:29pm Phelger Nank:

Too distracted to make that juice...double espresso + power bar + this groovy Group Sounds (?) tune
  12:30pm seang:

Thanks, man! love that song, "I'm goin' Native"
  12:30pm dale:

this is up there with del shannon. certainly much better than gary lewis and playboys
Avatar 12:32pm Michael Shelley:

gary lewis and playboys are the bomb
Avatar 12:33pm Michael Shelley:

Sean - that whole lp is really great
  12:35pm Sean T:

Where can I get The Buzzard Lope on 7". This has got to be in a vinyl Jukebox.
Avatar 12:40pm glenn:

by any chance, is there a comp of all the stuff the dillards did on andy griffith?
  12:43pm Denis:

They're out to trap you.
Avatar 12:47pm Chris from Brooklyn:

Ah. No conflict or strife on the comments board today. Came late to the party so there is certainly a podcast in my future. As always great show Michael.
  12:49pm Connie T. Empress:

Keep those "records" coming
  12:53pm Queens L. Bow:

Wow, so now I know where "12 Bar Blues" comes from (I heard it on an NRBQ album). And Don Covay really improved that song.
  12:53pm Sean T:

Wow I just looked for "The Buzzard Lope" on 45. Since I see Rex played it I know it is out there, but no listing or picture I could find anywhere. Guess I will have to come to the next record fare if I am serious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm fred:

@Sean T: You might want to check this out: kdhx.org...
Looks like he might be that Gabriel
Avatar 12:57pm Michael Shelley:

Rex says that Gabriel still does a radio show in St. Lewis and made a few good records
  12:58pm Jimmy Wipper:

Never heard this one, Miguel! Good one!
