I don't know why, but that "Burgers and Chips" song reminds me somehow of the Jonathan Richman song "Double Chocolate Malted." Anybody know it?

Burgers and Chips was... the same chord progression as "Money."

I'm seeing a little "spring/summer" theme brewing here! Burgers, Pacifics (swimming), First Base (Baseball!!!). Down with that!

I too enjoy the talk - especially when there are unexpected combinations of hosts. It reminds me of being a kid and reading a Marvel Team-Up comic. "Next month: Spider-EFD teams up with Jim The Poet! Excelsior!"
