Does Tommy's baby still do the Hanky Panky?
Avatar 11:17am Michael Shelley:

I think it was his baby who did it in the first place
  11:17am lloyd michigan:

Saw TJ at the Peppermint Tiger in Indianapolis around 1977. Talked to him after the show. Really nice guy.
  11:22am Dennis Diken:

welcome back Mikey! would love to learn about personnel on non-Shondell sessions, especially the drummers (perhaps Buddy Saltzman, Bobby Gregg?). I played on a Tommy record date a few years back, it was a thrill and he was electrifying in the studio!
Avatar 11:24am Michael Shelley:

Hi Dennis - long time no see! I miss you!
Avatar 11:25am ChooChoo - ATL:

Read a good revie of ‘Queens of Noise,’ by Evelyn McDonnell in the NYTimes last week. The book is a history of The Runaways.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Paul Dee:

Great show Michael! Great meeting you in NOLA! It was a trip seeing Ira and Georgia milling around Friday night. The I remembered readingg in that book that they went to the Stomp for their honeymoon!
Avatar 11:32am Uke Goldberg:

Back when Hanky Panky was on the radio, my friend was slapped by his mother for signing it.
  11:33am Tom from Detroit:

Ask tj what's his fave Lake Michigan side joint from the pre Morris days
Avatar 11:33am Uke Goldberg:

Tommy James' auto-biography is great.
  11:35am lloyd michigan:

Does he remember the Peppermint Tiger?
  11:45am mike tp:

great interview read the book. please ask about TOMMY in hawaii with the rascals n TOMMY being asked to got n play WOODSTOCK.
Avatar 11:52am Michael Shelley:

Paul - great to meet you too. Did you pick up any rare records?
Avatar 12:00pm KP:

That confirmed my long held opinion that "Think We're Alone Now" could have been broken up into at least three sure shot hits. It's the first record i remember buying on my own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Paul Dee:

I just got the second Soft Machine record and Little Milton's If Walls Could talk. Oh and the Cossimo Matassa VOL2 box and that Elvis at Stax records. As usual my mind went blank right when i entered the store. Thats why i love a good new arrivals bin.
  12:06pm Elias:

This flamin groovies song is great! Thanks!
  12:07pm JSG:

Wow, the new Deke record sounds great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm thriftstoreleather:

what a great interview, I love Saturday morning!
Avatar 12:11pm Michael Shelley:

yes - there is a fullness & warmth to the horns... and the ACOUSTIC rhythm gtr - it just sounds great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm thriftstoreleather:

the Nikki Hill & Deke Dickerson was great!
Avatar 12:13pm ChooChoo - ATL:

"Listen to this CHH-ORD!"

  12:17pm ifny:

You gotta try the Comedian Harmonists if you think the Mills Bros are the shizzle. But take off your shoes first, or your toes curling will shatter em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Paul Dee:

Haha Little Milton! What a DJ!
  12:18pm rob:

This sounds like clay pigeon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm thriftstoreleather:

  12:19pm JSG:

Nope. From the LA sessions. Fantastic song, maybe my fave of hers. They could have used some real horns, though.
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 12:22pm Jimmy Wipper:

Had a great time at the Rocktober, Mr. Shelley. Great show, as always.
Avatar 12:25pm Michael Shelley:

Jimbo, surprise for you later in the show... stay tuned!

I hope Rex knows about this Ted Hawkins song.

Great show, Michael
  3:24pm Wayne Guskind:

Shake Some Action! Excellent choice. The Farm did an excellent cover of this as well - may even be better than original.
