Marianne does Davies. Someone suggested 'Mother's Little Helper' was Kinks-like. Good point maybe!

I'm am SHOCKED that you don't know Weezer. The first four albums Michael...no need to go further.

And great show today. As always!
  12:43pm Alex Bernstein:

I LOVE this song!!! Thanks for playing. And they're covering new material by Nilsson, Andy Partridge, et al on the new album!
  12:46pm Santos L Halper:

if you check out Nes' FB page, he's answering some questions on the new album, including who some of the session players are. apparently the jangly 12 string is NOT him
Avatar 12:51pm Michael Shelley:

Mike Viola on 12 string!
  12:53pm P-90:

Fascinating to me that it's 2016 (!) and we're still adamant about clarity regarding just WHO played the "jangly 12-string" on the latest Monkees joint! (Just to be clear: this tickles me in an entirely good way, I'm not being cynical or dismissive)
  12:56pm P-90:

They got Mike Viola. Makes perfect sense.
