Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Jeff from Rahway:

Nothing more romantic than the Dead Boys!
  3:12pm Mike Sin:

"Love songs, nothing but love songs" -- I'm old enough to remember that programming campaign here in NYC for WPIX 102-FM back in the '80s! Todd is definitely delivering a great WFMU version of it!
  3:15pm Marc:

No same-sex shout out or dedications?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Stevel:

Repeating my thought, (posted on Rex's show earlier)

Some day, possibly for marathon, someone will put on a three-hour set highlighting fascinating DJs from way back to present. Maybe two sets.

Anyone recommend a solid book on DJs in the 50s and early 60s? Other periods?
Avatar 3:16pm V Priceless:

Rock, Mr. o-phonic!

Have to ask for one to Steve and Ellie. Thanks for asking me out and leaving your boyfriend soon after. Worked for me.

great show Todd! Three DJ sets in three locations in a 15-hour span! amazing!

Flashback! Not altogether unpleasant...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Stevel:

My only question: Does Sissiphonic know what Todd's dedication will be? (Only her hairdresser knows.)
Avatar 3:30pm Sem Chumbo:

Another one. Must be orange double-barrel acid reflux *l*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Jeff from Rahway:

We can ski to Todd's DJ show tonight
  3:35pm P-90:

Way cool track! distorto 12-string, backwards percussion, wow, love CAN make even the Doors sound tolerable...
  3:37pm Christina Don't:

Any set that features the Monkees followed by an amazingly gloomy Turtles song is okay in my book.

Todd may I hear "May I Take A Giant Step (Into Your Heart)" by the pride of Linden, NJ, the 1910 Fruitgum Company for my sweetheart?
Avatar 3:39pm Mailman Tom:

Excellent version of the famous Airplane tune!

Jack Sills! My heart jumped.
Avatar 3:48pm Sem Chumbo:

A Valentine's riot has broken out here, love is in the air!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Jeff from Rahway:

Jackie DeShannon's version of this Neil Young tune is pretty nifty too.
  3:49pm Richard:

Great show, Todd! Glad you're having the Light in the Attic folks on. One nitpick: They are actually a Seattle label, not a California one. Either way, I'm sure it'll be a great show, and I'll be listening out here in their hometown!
Avatar 3:50pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: that's why I was afraid to bring the Myddle Class up to Carole King the one time I met her.
Avatar 3:51pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Hoboken Jack: Maybe someday buddy!
Avatar 3:51pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Richard: Did I say California? I meant Seattle!
  3:51pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Good show Toddy-o-phonic!
  3:53pm Christina Don't:

Joe B, did grace slick have at Gerry Goffin too? I don't remember reading about that in her book.

What would the holiday be without Circle Jerks? "Love Kills!"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Wow. Apparently this set is dedicated to Greg from Bloomfield's ex-girlfriends...
Avatar 4:10pm Sem Chumbo:

Oh,oh. Might be waterworks at any moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Does King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have any love songs? I guess "Am I In Heaven?" might count.
  4:17pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

That song rules.
  4:17pm John W:

Pow! Pow! Pow! Tod-o-phonic Todd takes out Cupid and takes over the airwaves of love. A really sweet and tender show for Valentine's Day. Thanks!
  4:22pm John (STP):

Great show, Todd. If you can squeeze in a dedication to Toni that would be swell.
  4:27pm South River Bob:

Zeros are great but The Muffs rendition is the best!
  4:28pm John (STP):

Splendid choice.
  4:35pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Love Power!

Can money buy more sax?
  4:40pm David in ATL from NJ:

Where can I buy this record?
  4:40pm David in ATL from NJ:

That version tops the Beatles!
  4:41pm wilbur twinhorse:

At first I was thinking of it's a mad, mad, mad world, and then it became clear after looking at the playlist! Happy Valentines' Day all you wacky lovers.
  4:42pm geokopp:

How about a dedication for the Kopp kids and their significant others? Carson & Sophie and Bryan & Katie.

Thanks for tuning in everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@Ken: Thanks for the reminder!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Parq:

On a total side point, one of the few marketing research calls I've ever sat through was looking into that "Love Songs, Nothing But Love Songs" format. I was on the phone with the rep for, like, 20 minutes, taking about radio. Of course, everything I said fell on the outside 2% of the bell curve and was immediately discarded, but still, it was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Greg - Any time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm ChrisB.:

This show is destined to become the soundtrack to many date nights to come. Pow Pow Pow!

Is there anyway they could use Dave the Spazz's rock n' roll equations for the captcha system?
  11:38pm Mark Dillman:

Stevel: Two titles to recommend: "Pied Pipers of Rock 'n' Roll: Radio Deejays of the '50s and '60s" by Wes Smith, Longstreet Press, 1989, and "Dewey & Elvis: the Life and Times of a Rock 'n' Roll Deejay" by Louis Cantor, University of Illinois Press, 2005.
